Gemini 2018 Horoscope ~ January to March
Best news ever in 2018! You no longer have to put up with Saturn being a kill-joy in the marriage house. For your Gemini 2018 Horoscope, two and a half years of total commitment or nothing at all in your love life is finally over. Now Saturn has entered your house of psychology, trauma, taboo and debt where it can keep out of trouble and work in the shadows. This is a period where you might have to face ‘death’ in some form. Don’t be alarmed! Saturn in the 8th house does not mean you will die. But the death of someone around you could force you to confront feelings about your own mortality. What is your legacy and what will you leave to your children? Most of the time, this ‘death’ is of someone you weren’t particularly close to, maybe someone in the public eye that you resonated with. This distant death might touch you profoundly, but it is less about grieving their loss and more about this person being a symbol of the passing of time.
There is now a void in your psyche which can cause some crisis. Other possibilities at this time is a revelation that some truth is not what you thought, a skeleton comes out of the closet and taboos are broken. In 2018 realities are questioned, there can be a mini life review, and a feeling of detoxing the soul. At times this transit can feel quite dark, but Saturn has to go somewhere so better here in the cellar then cramping your style in the bedroom! It is best to think of Saturn here as wintertime. The stark snow forms a blank canvas where anything is possible. The long looming shadows of the low winter Sun must be faced one way or another. Those who relish studying psychology and the occult will have a ball!
2018 Eclipses for Gemini
On Jan 26 Mars enters your relationship house until Mar 18. This could be a time when pens are drawn at dawn! Communication between yourself and others seem like they come laced with petrol, as any micro-aggression turns into WWIII. Ok, maybe I’m being a bit too dramatic here, but tensions are high in the house of open enemies. In 2018 you could feel quite triggered by your partners words, whether they be in business or pleasure. It will be quite hard to mix socialising and business at this time, since a few drinks after work loosen the ability to keep things professional… Maybe it would be best to avoid alcohol-fuelled brainstorming with any collaborators at this time because, someone is bound to take something the wrong way. Avoid touchy subjects with people you know are difficult and you should be fine. All this just before the eclipse that is brewing.
The Jan 31 Lunar Eclipse heralds a pleasant exchange between the generations where grandma passes on her knowledge from her childhood. These first hand accounts are worth just as much as any approved history book, if not even more so. The crisis of the Lunar eclipse, plus stroppy Mars in your ‘others’ zone could have you storming out of a classroom. You could have conflict between seeing the bigger picture and nit-picking. There is also the possibility of creating your own personal rituals and spiritual practice after becoming disappointed by traditional, monotheistic religions. A lunar eclipse in the house of the goddess has a very pagan feel to it. It is about constructing your own elemental shrine in your garden as opposed to worshipping in a grand cathedral. The Feb 15 Solar Eclipse could attract you to a teacher who inspires soul growth that will effect you profoundly the rest of your life. This person could be your standard spiritual guru, but also could be someone whom is simply very wise and had gained this knowledge through hard knocks from the school of life. Travel is of course another avenue that broadens the mind, so for the next 6 months, trips abroad or meaningful exchanges with influential foreigners could help you see the world through a much wider angle lens.
