Gemini 2021 Horoscope
With only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you – and this has been the case for many years – the health should be good. Energy is strong.
The love life is becoming more successful in the year ahead – but this is only a prelude to the even greater success that will happen in 2022. Your love planet, Jupiter, will briefly move out of Aquarius and enter Pisces, from May 14 to July 29. Then, at the end of the year – on December 30 – he will move into Pisces for the long haul. Jupiter is very happy in the sign of Pisces and thus your social grace and magnetism will be very powerful. But this is not the problem in love. More on this later.
Jupiter’s move into Pisces will also have an important, very positive impact on your career. It will bring success – elevation – promotion and honours. But again, this is only the prelude to the real success that happens in 2022. Details below.
Uranus has been in your 12th house of spirituality since March 2019, signalling that this is an important area of life for years to come. It shows great experimentalism in your spiritual life and practice. You gravitate to different teachings and systems. You are like a wandering holy man seeking wisdom from wherever you find it. Thus, you could join many spiritual groups and try out different systems and methods. More on this later.
Health should be good this year, as we’ve already mentioned. Most of the year there is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you (although for a brief period – from May 14 to July 29 – there will be two). This is not enough to cause major problems in this area. More details later.
Your major areas of interest this year are personal transformation, reinvention, sex and occult studies; foreign travel, higher education, religion, philosophy and theology; career; and spirituality.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year will be the body, image and personal appearance; foreign travel, higher education, religion, philosophy and theology (until May 14 and from July 29 until December 30); and career (from May 14 to July 29 and from December 30 onwards).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But these days there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
As we’ve said, health should be good this year. For most of the year there is only one long-term planet – Neptune – in stressful alignment. Jupiter does come into the picture from May 14 to July 29 – but Jupiter is not really a health hazard. All the other long-term planets are either in harmonious aspect or leaving you alone.
Of course, there will be periods in the year where health and energy are less good than usual. These periods come from the transits of short-term planets and are temporary and not trends for the year. When they pass your normally good health and energy return.
Good though your health is, you can make it even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas in the year ahead (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):
Try to massage all of the foot on a regular basis – the top of the foot as well as the bottom – but pay extra attention to the points highlighted on the chart. When you massage, be aware of ‘sore spots’ as these need special attention. It’s also a good idea to massage the ankles – and below them especially.
The heart becomes an issue from May 14 to July 29 (although it will be vulnerable again next year). The important thing with the heart, as most spiritual healers will attest, is to avoid worry and anxiety, the two emotions that stress out the heart. Cultivate a sense of faith and trust.
The lungs, arms, shoulders, bronchial tubes and respiratory system. These are always important for Gemini as these areas are ruled by your sign. Arm and shoulder massage should be a part of your regular health regime. Tension tends to collect in the shoulders and needs to be released.
The colon, bladder and sexual organs. These too are always important for Gemini as Pluto, the planet that rules these organs, is your health planet. A herbal colon cleanse every now and then would be beneficial. Safe sex and sexual moderation are always important for you as well. Listen to your body and not your mind and you will know when enough is enough.
The spine, knees, teeth, bones and overall skeletal alignment have been important for many years, ever since your health planet moved into Capricorn. They will be important for a few more years too. So, very good to massage the back and knees, and the reflexes to these areas shown above. Regular visits to a chiropractor or osteopath would also be beneficial. The vertebrae in the spine need to be kept in right alignment. Good dental hygiene is important. Good to give the knees more support when exercising.
Pluto, your health planet, rules surgery. Moreover, he is occupying your 8th house of surgery for the foreseeable future, and so you have a tendency for this: you have probably undergone surgery in past years. But keep in mind that these same aspects also rule detox – and perhaps you should explore this first. Your chart shows that you respond well to detox regimes. Detoxing seems to take longer but, in many cases, it achieves the same result as surgery.
Home and Family
Your 4th house of home and family hasn’t been prominent for many years now. Though you are a person who tends to be devoted to family, this year (as in previous years) you are less so than usual. I read this as a good thing. It tends to the status quo. There is basic contentment with things as they are, and you have no need to make dramatic changes or to pay undue attention here.
Mercury is both the ruler of your Horoscope and your family planet. This shows the closeness of Gemini to the family. What happens to them happens to you. What happens to you happens to them. When things are going well for them, things go well for you. When things go well for you, things go well for them.
The year ahead is more of a career year. There is more focus on your outer, worldly goals than on family and the home. Of course, there will be periods where home and family issues are important, but they will never be dominant this year.
Parents and parent figures in your life can experience some upheavals in the home (there are two eclipses in the coming year that impact on them), but a move is not likely. One of them will have an excellent social year – especially from May 14 to July 29 – and if he or she is single, marriage could happen this year or in 2022.
Siblings and sibling figures have love in their lives. Their love life has been disappointing last year, but it is better now. If they are single, marriage can happen – but with delays and complications. A move is not likely this year. There is nothing against it, but nothing that especially favours it either.
Children and children figures are more fertile this year (if they are of appropriate age) but again, a move is not likely. If they are unemployed, though, they have wonderful job opportunities coming. Their social lives are stable. Grandchildren (if you have them) or those who play that role in your life can have multiple moves. They seem unsettled – almost nomadic.
If you’re planning major repairs to the home, September 16 to October 1 is a good time. If you’re planning merely to redecorate or to buy art objects for the home, July 22 to August 16 will be a good time to do this.
Finance and Career
Your money house is basically empty this year, Gemini. Only short-term, fast-moving planets will move through there and the effects are short lived. Thus there is not much focus on finance this year. This can be read as a good thing: you are content with things as they are and have no need to pay too much attention. It tends to the status quo. Finances will be more or less like last year. On the other hand, if problems arise, it could be because of lack of attention. The Cosmos is calling you at these times to pay more attention.
The career is much more of a focus than finance. Your prestige and status mean more to you than mere money. You could take a position that is more prestigious but pays less in preference to a position that pays more but has less prestige.
The Moon is your financial planet. Where even the fastest of the other planets needs a year to go through all the signs and houses of your chart, the Moon does so every month. Thus, earnings and earnings opportunities can come to you in a variety of ways and through a variety of people. It all depends on where the Moon is and the kinds of aspects she receives. These short-term trends are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
In general, we can say that your financial power (and your enthusiasm) will be stronger when the Moon is waxing than when she is waning. When the Moon is waxing it is a good time to buy things that you want to appreciate in value – stocks, bonds or physical items. When the Moon wanes, it is the period to use any extra cash to pay down debt. If you are an investor, the waxing Moon is good for accumulating shares. The waning Moon is good for taking profits – for harvesting.
While money per se is not a big issue, the career is really the headline this year. Career has been important for many years now, but this year, as Jupiter makes an initial foray into your career 10th house, there will be success and elevation. Pay rises and promotions are likely. If you own your own business, your business will be elevated in status and prestige. Jupiter’s brief move into your 10th house (May 14 to July 29) brings career success through social connections and by social means. You will be mixing with people of power and prestige – with people who can help you careerwise – and they seem eager to do so. The spouse, partner or current love seems successful too and is active and supportive in your career. It will be beneficial to attend the right social gatherings, and perhaps to host them as well. In general, your social grace – your likeability – is perhaps more important than your actual professional skills.
And, as we mentioned, 2022 is going to be even more successful than 2021.
Love and Social Life
There are many changes happening in the love life this year. Jupiter, your love planet, will be in Aquarius, your 9th house, for most of the year – until May 14 and from July 29 to December 30. While Jupiter is in Aquarius it favours many of your inborn, innate tendencies. It shows an allurement to foreigners, highly educated and religious people.
Jupiter’s natural home is the 9th house, so he is strong here.
In general, you are attracted to mentor types. You like people you can look up to and learn from. With Jupiter in this position, students can fall in love with their professor. There would also be an allurement to the worship leader, the spiritual leader of your place of worship.
Romantic opportunities can happen at college or college functions. They can happen at the place of worship or at religious functions. Often people in your place of worship can play cupid. Likewise, teachers or professors. There are many scenarios here.
Romantic opportunities can happen in foreign lands or while travelling. I have heard of marriages where the initial meeting took place in an aircraft. You have these kinds of aspects this year. An existing relationship can be strengthened by taking trips together.
The love planet in Aquarius also favours romance with unconventional types of people, and with people of different ethnic backgrounds.
Religious and philosophical compatibility is always important for Gemini, but this year even more so than usual. It won’t be enough to have good sexual chemistry: there needs to be a similar orientation to life – a similar metaphysics. You don’t need to agree on every detail, but you will have to be at least on the same page.
Two eclipses occur in your 7th house of love this year. There is a lunar eclipse on May 26 and a solar eclipse on December 4. Both will shake up and test existing relationships. Good relationships will easily weather the storm, but the shaky ones – the flawed ones – could disintegrate.
On May 14, your love planet moves into Pisces, your 10th house. This is a major transit, but at this time only a foretaste of what is to come next year. This changes the attitudes in love. You are still attracted to mentor types, professors and worship leaders, but now you are also attracted by people of power and prestige. Successful people. You would gravitate to bosses – people above you in status – and indeed these opportunities come to you. The problem here would be getting involved in relationships of convenience rather than of real love. Be careful about this.
Jupiter likes the 9th house as we mentioned, but he likes the sign of Pisces even better. According to classical astrology, Jupiter is the ruler of Pisces. You will find that much of your socializing during this period – May 14 to July 29 – is career related.
Jupiter moves back into Aquarius, your 9th house, on July 29 and stays there until December 30. Then he moves into Pisces for the long haul. Love will be even better in 2022 than this year. For singles this would show a marriage or a relationship that is like a marriage with someone of high status and position. Also, someone very spiritual.
Uranus has been in your spiritual 12th house since 2019, and he will be there for many more years. The spiritual life has become prominent and very exciting. There is great experimentation going on, and this is good: it is the way real knowledge is obtained. Yes, you can change teachers, teachings and practices at the drop of a hat. You don’t seem to stay on any one path for too long. On the other hand, eventually it will lead you to the essence of all the teachings. Ultimately you will find your own way – the way that works for you. Ultimately, I AM the path. It is unique for each individual.
We have undoubtedly discussed this in previous reports, but the trends are still very much in effect.
Uranus rules your 9th house. This would favour the mystical – supernatural – paths of your own native religion. All religions have their inner esoteric side beneath all the rules, regulations and superstitions that have arisen around them. So it is good to explore these things.
Uranus rules science and technology. You are intellectually inclined by nature, and this intellectuality should also be applied to the spiritual life. We don’t mean the intellectuality of the everyday, 3D mind, but the higher mind. The everyday mind has all kinds of sophistries that will obstruct spiritual progress. But when you get into the science of spirit – we call it spiritual science – the path becomes very rational. It is something that can be comprehended by the intellect.
Uranus also rules astrology. The path of esoteric astrology – the spiritual side of astrology (which is beyond mere predicting about worldly things) – is a viable spiritual path. It is a beautiful cosmology. Astrology answers many questions that the traditional paths don’t. Why is this happening to me? Why is it happening at this time? Why do I gravitate to one path and not another? And much more.
With Pisces on your 10th house cusp, you are always idealistic about the career. You want a career that is more about idealistic, altruistic kinds of things – things that benefit others and the world. With spiritual Neptune’s position in your 10th house over many years now, this urge is even stronger. And, as Jupiter joins Neptune in your 10th house from May 14 to July 29, these urges become stronger still. So, this is a year where you might take up a position in a not-for-profit organization or charity. Even if you are in a worldly career, you could be spending spare time involved with charities and not-for-profits. There is a need to feel the ‘Divine Assent’ about your career path.
