By Angel Lopez:
At one time, you probably thought you were making decisions that were in alignment with your purest, most authentic self. But then you evolved and changed, which allows you to see how you’d now pivot away from the choices you once made. With this process of growth comes reflection, and with that comes the need for forgiveness; the need to forgive yourself for making choices you once thought were of the highest order; the need to forgive others who were involved; and the need to forgive the Universe for putting you in those situations in the first place. Yup, we can all get angry with the Universe, but that doesn’t mean you should stop having faith in what it can help you manifest. And ultimately, the Universe is a reflection of you, so forgiving yourself is going to be the greatest key.
This Gemini Season, please forgive yourself for any mistakes or wrong turns of the past. No one deserves the pain or sadness that comes with hardship, but it happened. So now it becomes about doing what you can with the person you’ve become on the other side of it. Because there’s a great joy that wants to be available for you, but if you’re too busy beating yourself up or crying into a pillow, you’ll miss it. Now that’s not to say crying into a pillow isn’t a good spend of time (and maybe a great song title), because it can be. But if it becomes a full-time job, then you may have just made melancholy your comfort zone, and no one should live there.
So, do what you can for the next four weeks to listen to your heart, mind, body, and soul and take their cues for what you want to be doing.
Maybe call your inner child in, too, just for a little added guidance and support. You’ll find that if you can align all these various pieces of you while forgiving the past that fractured them, you’ll move into a greater space of abundance, peace, and true authenticity.
Read for your Sun sign but also check your Rising, if you know it.
It’s time to ground your most inspired creative ideas and bring them into physical being. You can have a million conversations in your own head about what you’d like to write, build, make, or just do with your life, but if they’re just mental bubbles floating in space, they’re not doing you or anyone else any good. Push yourself to get a little more at home in your personal creativity and bring some of those brilliant thoughts into form. And “creative” doesn’t mean you have to paint, draw, or start to sing—unless that’s what’s been at the top of your mental list. We create in a myriad of ways. You just have the opportunity to start expressing who you are to the world in a more concrete way, so wrap your head around what that should look like. You may even find yourself a way to make money that’s also aligned with something that brings you joy; so why wouldn’t you allow yourself to pull closer to some truer happiness?
Defining your worth is purely an inside job, yet it’s easy to unknowingly give that job over to outside sources. And right now, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the battle to stay strong, courageous, and confident while having to engage with some people, places, and things that zap you of your energy and chip away at your self-belief. It all may have you fighting the urge to burrow in and hide from the world, even though so much is trying to call you out into it. The best way to handle it is to let yourself off the hook from being everything for everyone and to take some personal days to stay home and connect back into your purest level of joy. What makes the little kid in you sing? You need more time doing that and less time focusing on the negative. You’re entering your glow-up era, and soon those opinions and critiques that feel so real to you now will fade into the darkness.
This is when you get to actually feel like yourself again, though it’s going to be a new self that you’ve been working hard to cultivate. Since Mars did a number on you and spent six months of retrograde time in your sign, you’ve had some major starts and unexpected stops. But hopefully, all of those experiences have helped you gauge a greater sense of your self-worth, which can help you harness this activated energy that’s available to you this Gemini Season. You can bring some real creative fire to your ideas and feel confident in your thoughts and opinions. You can put some effort into your career and get more excited for the vision you have for your future. Just know that it’s still going to take some time to manifest it all. But your outlook is so much clearer than it’s been in some time, and you can pick yourself up from any perceived failures or challenges and move forward with some greater confidence.
Your subconscious is aglow right now, helping guide you in your choices and hopefully aligning you with the next level of self-respect that you need to be living in. All this may find you compelled to take actions and commit to decisions that others don’t fully understand or love. But who cares? You’re forging a new path for yourself. And these are ideas and changes that have been brewing in you for some time now, so it’s of no surprise that you’re awakening to any stale parts of your life that need a shift and shaking them up. In fact, what you’ll find is that this all unearths some new relationships and communities for you to connect with, finding yourself in connection with people and energies that you didn’t even know were missing from your life. You’re now entering a strong exploration mode, where you get to be an adventurer of your own life, not always something Cancer does easy. Enjoy the renaissance!
You’re feeling a great level of motivation surfacing for you, allowing you to connect your actions with your dreams. Lean all the way in and take advantage of this phenomenal energy so you can get a lot of exciting work done. You can also lean in to your community to help you, particularly with folks who once were great contacts but then lost their connection with you. Lure them back in and mine that history of love and depth of easy understanding for the gifts that they bear. You are more than ready to tap into your potential and align it with your greatest sense of purpose, so make sure that everything you’re lending your time and heart to really feels like they’re in line with what should be your personal legacy. You have all this energy to give, so don’t drain it toward unnecessary outlets.
These next few weeks are all about learning a new way of being while keeping in alignment with what you know about yourself to be true. You know that some things have got to give while others are just constants. You’re just never gonna change your mind in some ways, and that’s okay. But recognizing where something old and something borrowed have lingered for far too long and can find their way out now is good. But you must do the ushering. You can’t expect those jobs, habits, boyfriends, or piles of clothes to walk themselves out of your life. Let them go, because the time is now to expand your personal arsenal of beliefs, and anything that stands in the way of your commitment to actualizing the authentic you doesn’t stand a chance. You’re also able to resource a deeper connection with faith, so do your best to recline toward that deeper sense of trust in where you’re headed. You definitely need to handle some things, but know that other things are being handled for you by the divine.
These next few weeks shine a light on your quest for knowledge, but they do so in a way that allows you to go deeper than you may normally want to. But you should, because this quest is personal. So try not to shy away from the more intense questions that may be burning a hole in your mind. Ask yourself “Why” when it comes to decision-making and thought patterns. You can also focus this on what it is you choose to spend your money on and why. It’s important to check in with what you’re giving attention and emphasis to in your life and if they really support the dreams you have for your life. Are you unconsciously spending time and money on things that support an ideal of you that you want others to see rather than the truth of who you actually want to be? Can you make some changes to your daily routine and habits that bolster your personal growth over others’ perception of you? And does it really matter at all what other people think of you if you think you’re great and doing your best?
Your closest relationships are about to get closer, which also means that the people in your life are about to go under severe scrutiny—because you wouldn’t be a Scorpio if you didn’t look deeply at what makes people tick and wonder why they’re there in the first place. Just know that the ones who pass the test will prove to be fantastic partners for you and can offer great wisdom and even some opportunities for you. And your career space is lit up, so you could actually take advantage of any interesting ideas being offered your way. Maybe it’s time to ask for that raise or promotion. You may find it just come your way, though it could come in the form of a new job altogether. And if your job doesn’t feel like your actual purpose, you’ll also have the energy to burn the midnight oil and work on any passion projects in ways that bring them into greater, exciting form.
You’re about to feel your life blossom in a new way that should be exciting news given that you’re one who loves adventure. But the question is: how can you approach your day-to-day life with more of an adventurous spirit? If you’ve found yourself in any sort of rut in some part of your life, now’s the time to breathe new life into it. However, you need to make the first move. You need to show life that you’re ready to engage with it in a new way. So shift up the habits that you’ve been subscribed to, even the healthy ones. Maybe your meditation needs a facelift or your diet is missing something you told yourself was bad for you but actually brings you joy without compromising your health. This change of pace will also reflect in your relationship world, allowing you to connect with those you love (or could love) with a fresh perspective.
These next few weeks want to help you figure out how to infuse your creative spirit with your daily work, showing you that they don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Work can be play if you know how to approach and engage with it right. You just might have a tendency to associate making money with productivity, and sometimes the fun, artistic stuff isn’t what brings in the money or seems like it’s contributing to being productive. But really, the fun and joyful experiences that the Universe is trying to compel you toward is actually going to be more productive and more fulfilling than anything you could be doing that, on the surface, looks like serious, constructive business. If you’re being shown an excuse to take some down time or can be more creative with how you fuel your days, take it. Don’t see changes to your normal flow as disruptive or failure; see them as invitations into playful growth.
Your sense of home and family is ready for a great expansion, and it’s all in service of honoring what you’ve been learning is of great worth and support to you right now. You’re ready to make your surroundings and the people who share them a better reflection of the person you’re growing into being these days. Now, of course, you’re probably not gonna kick the whole family to the curb if they can’t align with all of your values. But you should begin to state your needs more clearly and assert your artistic sensibilities. Your physical environment must inspire you. It must comfort you. And it must feel like a safe space for you to explore your wildest fantasies, where your dreams can thrive and come to life. So even if you can’t paint the entire space your favorite color, carve out a space that is solely yours where you can create a magical womb that houses you in all its funkiest glory.
The truth of the matter is, you aren’t the most grounded of the bunch. You might just have a tendency to float away into your inner daydreams when someone is trying to explain something to you; and that’s part of your magic, how you’re able to exist so smoothly between the conscious and subconscious. However, it maybe hasn’t been so smooth these days. You may have flown a little too far from the ground lately and could be in need of some tethering. Choose one or two of your inspired, dreamy ideas to focus on and start to put some actual, tangible intention into them. You have the opportunity to actually manifest some cool new work and projects into being that would allow for a cool infusion of excitement into your life. But in order to have success with this, you’ll need to release any habits that keep you from sticking to the ground and being a little more controlled. Let those dreams come to life, and then you won’t have to disappear so much into the dream realm to visit them.
