December Horoscope for Gemini

 (May 21st  - June 20th)

Relationships are the focus of your existence, they’re either making your life easier or creating havoc. It’s up to you to set your boundaries and hold to them. With Mercury, your ruler, retrograde for most of the month, you’ll be dealing with the past more than the future. Clear everything up and when the clock strikes 12:00 on the 31st you’ll be ready for a new beginning.

Gemini is not an easy sign to manage because it is always restless and looking for something better, stronger, more fulfilling. That’s not a bad thing if you can take the time to acknowledge what you have achieved. If a yearning for more is not balanced with appreciation for the gifts you have, then it will become a destructive force rather than a blessing. You are an innovator, an adventurer, and you love variety and new challenges. With experience you learn that most “new” things are not new at all, they just have a different packaging. See beyond the surface, go into your soul, and recognize what it is you’re really looking for. Always remember self-worth is not based on worldly achievements, it’s based on the good things you do for yourself and others, the ideas you create and share, and the experiences that define your life. Look around you and see the joy you have given others, the support you have offered, the wisdom you have shared. If others can’t appreciate what you have to offer, then you need new people in your life.

The Full Moon falls in your 1st and 7th houses, you vs. relationships. This month is about getting your needs met in spite of the demands others make upon you. Within you is a need to be needed, you don’t like to disappoint those you love, but sometimes you do this to your own demise. This is a month where putting yourself first is important. Don’t expect others to be aware of your needs, they’re too focused on themselves. Make them wait; put yourself first. Do what you need to do for you. And yes, compromise is always a good choice as long as you include what’s important to you in the discussion. Once again it’s the balance of opposites, of selfishness and selflessness. Very few souls get this dynamics right.

Relationships this month are highlighted with four planets in Sagittarius, the ruler of your 7th house. You can get both support and demands from others, so decide what you can give and what you need. Your partner will be vocal now and the past comes up more than the future. If you’re tired of repeating yourself, end the discussion and make your choices without permission. Your ideals are a lot higher than those of others; you are always striving to achieve more than they could even imagine. Take that into consideration and realize that some things should not be shared too early.  You’re an air sign, so friendships are important, but you need friendships that understand who you are. Know who you can express yourself with and who needs your silence.

Mercury goes retrograde on the 3rd in Sagittarius and goes direct on the 23rd. You may find that old issues reappear with your partner. If you’re single, don’ be surprised if an old relationships comes back into your life. There is something you need to review, a lesson that wasn’t learned or a quality you haven’t valued. Now is the time to adjust and relook at whatever returns. Remember, try not to sign contracts during a retrograde, but if you have no other choice, don’t worry about it – it is meant to be and may even work out to your advantage.

Jupiter in Scorpio is transiting your 6th house of work and making a trine to Neptune in your 10th house of career and goals. Neptune is a difficult planet to manage, especially for a Gemini. Your ideals are normally high and with Neptune they’re out of the park. So rely on your practical friends to help you stay grounded. This is a great time for you to get things done. Jupiter will help you focus on doing things your way. So take advantage of the energy and negotiate things on your terms. Set your goals high and go for them, you’ll get them accomplished easier than you think. For the first two weeks of the month Saturn will be in trine to Uranus, which always initiates change. It’s inevitable. Your beliefs have been adjusted and you see the future in a new way. Embrace the new vision; it’s there for all the right reasons. Take your experiences and what you’ve learned from the past and use them as the structure of your new concepts. There is nothing stronger than merging the best of the old with the new.

One December 20th Saturn moves out of Sagittarius and enters Capricorn the ruler of your eighth house. Be prepared to deal with financial issues for the next 2 1\2 years. It will make you aware of what you’ve done wrong and what you’re doing right. Pay attention. This is your chance to get things realigned and in order. Just because you want to do the right thing doesn’t mean that others follow suit. You know what’s fair. Stand by your ideals and don’t let others talk you out of what is due you. When Saturn leaves you’ll be wiser and stronger in this area.

Whatever you do don’t isolate yourself. Pluto is the ruler of your house of work, but it is very much alone for a good part of the month. You prefer to do things all by yourself and that’s not very wise. The problem is not others, you have trouble setting boundaries and saying no to what you don’t want. When you can express yourself and risk disappointing others, then you no longer have to work alone. So embrace the fact that you need to be less accommodating and start seeing the world your way.
