‘Fantasy’ By Pierre Puvis de Chavannes 1866 {{PD}}

The Sun and Mercury both enter Gemini today and form the Superior Conjunction; though they share space in the 29th degree of Taurus, they don’t perfect their meeting until 00 Gemini–thus suggesting that the conclusions typical to a Superior Conjunction will spark a whole new way of thinking or relating, and that these might be preceded by a crisis or other tense scenario.

When they perfect, both the Sun and Mercury are semi-square Juno, signalling some sort of upset over personal empowerment, or the authority or status one holds–and this may come as precursor to, or follow-up to, the Superior Conjunction.

All this tension/ crisis may open the way to opportunity, to freedom, and this gives us the chance to truly act on or expand the reach of what we consider important, what we value or are dedicated to. Not all of us will respond to this, though; some will immerse themselves in escapism or take a fantasy-based tack. In either case, we need to be aware that what happens today will shape the future, for some time to come.

Setting the table for your year ahead. Art by Peter Ilsted {{PD}}

For those born with the Sun at 00 Gemini. Check your natal chart for the correct Sun degree (you may want to read both the degree number and the one that follows, if you have minutes on your Sun position–together these offer a more complete picture of your year ahead). Dear Gemini, What will you learn on your birthday? What will end, what new beginnings show themselves? The sky’s the limit for you, this solar year, through to your next birthday, IF you’re willing to pull back and make sure that in pursuing ambition or desire fulfillment you remain both smart and practical. A willingness to apply skills, or to learn new ones, would serve you well, as is openness to change that is optimistic or that brings the life in line with the facts. Good luck!
