Gemini Monthly Horoscope May 2017

Gemini (Born May 22 to 31) and Gemini Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Gemini:

May 2017 Gemini Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends


Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar twelfth house. This is the time to listen to your intuition, to take a break from the hectic pace of your life, and to reflect on what you have learned in the past year. You might naturally retreat a little and take more private time for yourself now. Your physical energy levels may not be up to par for the time being, and this is your body signalling you to take a break. This is not an ideal time for pushing forward with new personal projects and plans. It is better to finish up projects and tie up loose ends now.

From May 20th forward:

The Sun illuminates your first house now, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature surfaces, and it's time to seize opportunities. Existing problems in your life may be overcome now by bravery and a straightforward approach to your life. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for teamwork and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

All month: 

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 9th to May 3rd

Occurring in your solar eleventh and twelfth houses this time, your instinctual judgment may be compromised, and extra care should be used when communicating with friends. You may find that communications with friends or with groups can easily get sticky. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may be uncommunicative or giving off mixed signals. On the other hand, old acquaintances may appear during this cycle. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Be as non- judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends and co-workers during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your personal presentation or image to others and communications with family because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Because Mercury is your sign's ruler, all of the common Mercury Retrograde issues may apply. Put off making important decisions with regards to family and domestic matters (Virgo-ruled for you) just now, and take care when it comes to communicating with family members.

Until May 16th: 

Mercury continues to journey through your solar eleventh house. This is a time when conversations with friends and various networking activities are much appreciated and offer learning experiences. Your ideas just now are especially progressive and unconventional, as you are questioning the rules you typically live by and entertaining some wild ideas. Not all of these ideas are necessarily going to last or lead to new projects, but it's a time of dreaming up new possibilities and new possible solutions to problems. You are especially interested in spending time with people who are like-minded. Social interactions are more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle.

From May 16th forward: 

Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues while Mercury transits the twelfth house of your solar chart. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid getting dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Creative endeavors could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position of Mercury is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month

Mars continues to activate your solar first house, supplying you with added energy to apply towards personal goals, and a more assertive and direct approach to the world in general. This is an excellent period for physical training and exercise of any kind. The desire to be self-sufficient and independent is especially strong now. You are far less tolerant of being restricted by or dependent on others, and this is a good time to identify your personal strengths and to take positive action to rectify situations that may have previously felt frustrating or repressive. You might be especially attracted to personal challenges, and seeing just how far you can push. However, be careful not to push yourself (and others) too far.

Overview Horoscope:

The first three weeks of May is typically a period of tying up loose ends and living life under the radar, dear Gemini. To some degree, it's the case this May, but you’re also living quite spiritedly! Your ruler, Mercury, ends its retrograde period on the 3rd, for one, and you begin to catch up to speed. Mars is not only in your sign all month, it’s in mutual reception with your ruler, bolstering up your energy and giving you further power to assert yourself and courage to pursue your desires. Routes to satisfaction are becoming clearer and clearer. While April had its fair share of roadblocks, May feels more energizing and supportive overall.

People tend to follow or respond positively to you as you seem to be where the action and energy are at this month! You are getting support from friends, associates, groups, or even your community. You enjoy working independently, and you can have many (or one or two fabulous) ideas for a start-up. The month is particularly supportive of your efforts to connect harmoniously with others. Areas of life that tend to fare best are friendships, partnerships, education, and financial life. Relationships can be both committed and open or both steady and exciting. You are combining progressive and traditional elements quite seamlessly now in your relationships, or you may be rewriting some of the rules for the better with friends and partners. Partnering or teaming up can be very advantageous for achieving your goals, so even though you do have a strong independent streak in May, open yourself up to the possibility of enlisting others' help or getting active with friends.

The Full Moon on the 9-10 is eye-opening and warm. While this is a time ripe for discovery and blooming, it can also be a time for keeping things under wraps, deliciously private, or simply strategic. Intimate matters, work, and health may thrive now, reaching a turning point. Surprises are likely related to platonic relationships.

The 16-17 requires some adjustments. A lack of direction or unclear responsibilities can seem to get in the way of your pursuits. Either find ways to accept ambiguities or attempt to define your goals and commitments more satisfyingly. People may be calling you out on promises or expecting far too much of you when you need some personal space. The Sun is in your sign from the 21st forward, launching your month-long personal power period. The New Moon on the 25th kickstarts new beginnings, but you may need to get over a hurdle first. Around the 28th, a significant person may seem to be blocking you. For some, it’s about circumstances getting in the way of your plans, or a sense that others, in general, are cooling off, conservative, unsympathetic, or unsupportive. The last two days of the month play more in your favor, especially related to resolving problems, getting back into the swing of things, developing new or picking up old interests, studies or other “busy work”, and a stronger feeling that you're on track.

Gemini (Born June 1 to 11) and Gemini Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Gemini:

May 2017 Gemini Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends


Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 14th: 

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house. Relationships with authority figures, superiors, and with the public are in focus during this cycle. It's a strong period for diplomatic relations, although a negative expression of this position could be bending over backwards to please rather than positive, friendly relations. It's a time when being a team player reaps the most rewards, and you may be mixing business with pleasure now. This may be a time when you are especially enjoying your career or position and making the most of it.

From May 14th: 

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle.

If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 9th to May 3rd

Occurring in your solar eleventh house this time, extra care should be used when communicating with friends. You may find that communications with friends or with groups can easily become sticky during this cycle. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may be uncommunicative or giving off mixed signals. On the other hand, old acquaintances may appear during this cycle, or you could be thinking about contacting an old friend. This may be a good time to do so. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends and associates during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your personal presentation or image to others and communications with family because Mercury rules these areas of your life.

This may be important, in fact, because this position of Mercury is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

From the 6th forward:

You are able to stand your ground and assert yourself more than usual during this transit of Mars through your solar first house. You have energy at your disposal to move your plans forward, and you are more enterprising. You want to leave your mark on the world in some way--however big or small--and you are more able to make an impression than usual. If circumstances are such, you are able to easily fight back. In fact, you may be somewhat combative under this influence, and you may have a short temper. Avoid being pushy. Take charge of your life, but don't bulldoze over others in the process! This is an excellent transit for assertiveness and physical vitality. Love affairs may also be stepped up during this period. On the rare occasion when an accident occurs, it is more likely to involve the head or face.

Gemini (Born June 12 to 21)
AND Gemini Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Gemini:

May 2017 Gemini Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar eleventh house. During this cycle, you are planting seeds for the future, dreaming up plans that you might begin to develop two months down the road, if they still seem viable then. You are more aware of the benefits of networking, and you might find some great ideas through others now. You might be working in a team now. You could be questioning some of the rules you have been living by and you could be ready to try something totally new. You are more attracted to that which is progressive or unconventional during this cycle.

From May 10th forward:

The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 26th: 

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house. Relationships with authority figures, superiors, and with the public are in focus during this cycle. It's a strong period for diplomatic relations, although a negative expression of this position could be bending over backwards to please rather than positive, friendly relations. It's a time when being a team player reaps the most rewards, and you may be mixing business with pleasure now. This may be a time when you are especially enjoying your career or position and making the most of it.

From May 26th: 

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level.

Occurring in your solar eleventh house this time, extra care should be used when communicating with friends. You may find that communications with friends or with groups can easily become sticky during this cycle. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may be uncommunicative or giving off mixed signals.

You are especially interested in spending time with people who are like-minded. Social interactions are more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until May 21st:

Mars continues to energize your solar twelfth house now. While Mars occupies the twelfth house, asserting yourself in a direct and straightforward manner can be difficult. This is largely due to a feeling of not being in touch with what it is you want or desire just for the time being as you reassess your goals and needs. This lack of direction and self-knowledge should prompt you to look within to learn about your desires. It is likely that you will be much clearer when Mars reaches your first house. For the time being, take some time for rest and give your ego a break.

From May 21st forward:

You are able to stand your ground and assert yourself more than usual during this transit of Mars through your solar first house. You have energy at your disposal to move your plans forward, and you are more enterprising. You want to leave your mark on the world in some way--however big or small--and you are more able to make an impression than usual. If circumstances are such, you are able to easily fight back.
