Reclaiming personal power is a big theme for you, yet it’s multiple layers will take you well into the middle of the year to decipher. Priorities are shifting as birthday season etches closer, and you realign yourself to where you want to be. For you, things are getting quite intimate, mainly because you have the North Node of destiny in your 1st house. Image, reputation, goals and wishes are highlighted and your eyes are opened to where you may be losing your own identity. The Node’s align with the Eclipse cycle which also centres around the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. I think it’s easy to sense from this that developing your own individuality is what’s most important throughout 2021. Let’s map it all out for you, Gemini. It begins with Mercury in Aries joining your social 11th house on the 4th of April. Close relationships can be put to the test, and transparency is required to bring clarity to a friendship. On the 11th/12th, a New Moon in Aries is joined by the Sun, Venus and Mercury also in your 11th house of self expression. It may be time to widen your circle and let new people in. Either way, friends introduce you to rather unusual people who strike up something within you. All month, there is a very awkward transit occurring between Uranus and Saturn, showing you what you’re chained too. Tensions arise when you feel restricted by people, professions or routine – and because this aspect will repeat 3x times over the course of 2021, it’s evident these grievances don’t just wash away on their own.
On the 20th, the Sun leaves Aries for Taurus, and meets Mercury in your 12th house of surrender. Healing old fractures in relationships is possible, but loving yourself is the main priority here. Accept who you are, what you want and where you ultimately wish to go – it’s much easier that way to get through the volatile space of June and July. On the 24th, Mars shifts into your 2nd house bringing opportunity and some financial unpredictability. A Scorpio Full Moon on the 26th/27th moves into your 6th house, suggesting an ulterior route. This path to wellness can trigger a personal change, a new way of life. May can feel like quite a karmic month, where teamwork makes the dreamwork. Venus enters your sign early in the piece, on the 8th, giving you sass and extra confidence. The 20th marks your birthday season – and it’s all systems go, even with the chaotic mood hanging overhead. Finally, the month closes with a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius (your opposite sign) on the 26th. This eclipse represents the left brain/right brain axis and your continual thirst for knowledge. The month ends with Mercury, your ruler, turning retrograde until mid-June. It’s a tough retrograde, one that appreciates a quick mind and slick attitude.
Life is giving you a new timeframe in which to work in. By default, you always focus on others, taking on too much just to help people who at times don’t show the same respect toward you. In a sense, you’re looking to surrender these obligations and develop your own path going forward. April and May can greatly further this notion, but it will be rocky before it’s calm seas. The North Node in Gemini sits in your 12th house of retreat and solitude, giving your natural intuition a moment to rest and recalibrate. Your spiritual path is leading you to a desire for a slower paced life, and you will begin to notice these shifts after the first Eclipse of the year occurring in late May. All April, there is a tense square between Saturn (planet of rules) and Uranus (planet of freedom). Certain responsibilities are ruling over your life, and you are now seeking to delegate these commitments. Slowly, something inside of you is changing, and the balance between work and service to others comes second to the peace of mind you feel when you’re alone. On the 4th of April, the Aries Sun, Venus and Mercury sit in your academic 10th house. Career is front and centre and what is developing is only furthered on the 12th, when a New Moon in Aries also shifts into the 10th house of business.
Creative endeavours that appear risky may appeal more in this time, as you sense that if you pull it off you can gain more than ever before. The comic climate is different, and you dislodge long-term ‘bad’ habits. The Sun moves into Taurus on the 20th, engaging with your social 11th house, alienating business pressure for more socially rewarding connections. However, it’s on the 24th that the mundane and magical become intertwined, as Mars enters your sign and 1st house of image and presence. Soul contracts or twin flames come to rock you, and there can be a push/pull effect between you and an ex/lover. It’s a very fertile time, and it’s increasing with the Scorpio Full Moon on the 26th/27th. This Moon will be extra heightened for you, as it’s in your fellow water sign, but more so because it engages with your romantic 5th house. Marking a wonderful time for sexual closeness and connection, as well as collaborative projects. The month of May can feel especially profound, as there is so much to unpack. The Sun enters twin sign Gemini, on the 20th, followed by the first Lunar Eclipse of the year in Sagittarius on the 26th. Your service to the world, your health and your physicality is all up for revision. Forget what you thought you knew, the end of the month signs off in its very own signature. Be careful how you proceed in certain scenarios, as Eclipses often have a very dramatic affect on you.
