Gemini in Love

Now, will the real Gemini please stand up! If you're a mystery to yourself at times you're an even greater one to your lovers and partners - they don't know who they're going to wake up with on any given day, which, of course, is part of your charm and also your dilemma. You tend to think about love too much, worry too much and analyse your feelings too much, all of which gets in the way of the organic flow of a relationship. One day, you'll think you feel one way, and the next, another: you'll be passionate and needy on one occasion, and cool and remote on the next. Your inconsistency is quintessentially feminine, but very frustrating for both you and your partners. Learning to trust your feelings, share intimacy and to shut down the commentator in your brain are three ways of resolving your dilemma, living with another mutable sign is a fourth (more about this later).

As an air sign, the mind is the most important 'organ' of your body - you are an experimenter, and someone who enjoys playing and fantasizing. Yet you also need consistency and constancy in your life. This too poses a dilemma, because while you can fall in love and marry, inevitably you will become bored by the routine of marriage and the familiarity of your partner - there is no medication for this attention deficit disorder! Thus, extra-marital affairs are all too often the route that the restless Gemini heart takes, followed by a trip to the divorce courts. And not once, but often many times. Marilyn Monroe (three planets in Gemini, two marriages and countless affairs) reportedly telephoned a friend on the day she married Joe DiMaggio stating that she needed to get a divorce. Pronto.

The Geminian Man

Who is that man on the run, waving his hands in the air, talking to someone on his cell phone while addressing a group of followers? It's Gemini Man, of course. This man is convinced that it's harder to hit a moving target - a philosophy that works as well for his business life as it does for his love life. The best way to capture the heart of Mr Gemini, is to keep him at a distance too: he is particularly attracted to passionate and emotionally complex women, yet he cannot take angry scenes and copious tears. You see, he is difficult. There are, at least two men within every Gemini - Mr Nice Guy and Mr Ice Guy - this man will freeze you out when he's upset, angry or moving on. Still interested? Well, no surprise there, because the Gemini can be the most fascinating, boyish and charming man in the zodiac.

Who's For You

Here's where the other Mutable signs come in, for being with a Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarian or another Gemini can feel like 'coming home'. Mr Virgo makes an excellent fencing partner - and we're talking a skirmish of words here - and you tune into each other's sexuality in a deep, dark and mysterious way. In the long run however, that war of words can turn very nasty. Mr Pisces, proves endlessly fascinating and brings out your protective and responsible side - sex at the start of the relationship is out of this world, but after a couple of years it may peter out completely. The Sagittarian is a great companion, - a soul mate, a kindred spirit: you both drive each other bananas at times, and the sex could be less than wonderful, but you'll sustain a life-long affection for each other. And the same goes for Mr Gemini. Aries and Leo are two fire signs who are made to make Ms Gemini happy - these two signs give you a run for your money, they make stimulating partners and loving supporters.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Gemini

Now you no longer have Saturn cramping your style you will feel lighter and freer and more your optimistic self. Much of your renewed confidence will be reflected in your career, and 2018 is the year to make a name for yourself. It is also a year that could take you far in terms of travel and your life-direction – the late January-early February period is full of surprises. Neptune continues to be a major force, especially for the 6-10 June birthdays, and the moment you feel truly blessed by the gods of good fortune or at a loss as to why a situation has turned pear-shaped, point a finger at this planet of dreams and delusions; 2 March, 6 June and 7 December could prove particularly relevant in this regard. In early November, Jupiter enters the zone of relating, bringing good people into your life and setting the stage for an important merger or two.

Saturn’s transit of the relationship zone inspired some Geminis to marry and others to divorce, but over the past couple of years all of you faced a test of your love and commitment. Now you can build on those lessons, growing stronger as a couple and, most important, starting to enjoy each other again. If you’re single, you are more likely to find love in a foreign place or while travelling and some Geminis will fall for someone in the workplace. It’s the Neptune group (6-10 June) who are most at risk of disappointment, on the one hand, and falling madly, deeply and truly in love, on the other. Just get on the love bus, Gemini, and keep going until it reaches the terminus or takes you to infinity. Late April through 18 May is a premium period for key romantic developments.

Work there should be aplenty in 2018, and if you're jobless or looking to upgrade/diversify, double your efforts because you can be successful. May is one of the most promising months for career progress, and some Geminis will get an offer from abroad or with an international company. Widen your net, go where you've never gone before. Raising finance could be more challenging this year, and you are better assuming you'll have to rely on your own reserves. Likewise, property sales could be slow and disappointing. You'll learn a lot, whether you take short or long courses to add to your skills set or through what happens to you in the pursuit of building your empire. Dream big; invest in reality.
