You might not be the smartest person in the room today, but your intellectual prowess will distinguish you. Speak up when a bad idea is being offered up for a vote. Use all your diplomatic ways to charm everyone into seeing things in a more productive way (your way). As long as you assume everyone is at least as smart as you, there is no way you can offend others. And if anyone's ego gets a bit bruised in the process, that's their problem—it's certainly not yours.
GeminiMay 21 – Jun 20
You’re more than happy to follow through on your work responsibilities but you’ll be itching for a shake-up around August 15 when the full moon is in your ninth house of higher learning. You’re in need of an eye-opening experience. Putting in for vacation time or investing in a course to hone your skill set and ultimately advance your career are just two routes you could go. Now’s absolutely a time to follow your gut.
On August 16, information-gathering Mercury in your third house of communication clashes with game-changer Uranus in your twelfth house of spirituality, and you’ll be dealing with an onslaught of frenetic messages and energy that makes you want to crawl under the covers. Taking time-outs for self-care—even occasional, quickie deep breathing sessions—can help you feel centered in the midst of all the buzz.
Your home planet Mercury is now direct in sensitive Cancer, which should help you get your feelings back on track. If you’ve recently said the wrong thing to a friend or lover, a heartfelt apology does wonders now.
Mercury pairs up with the feisty Lion on the eleventh, giving you the confidence to say what’s on your mind in a direct and loud manner. You’re pretty sure of yourself, which can take you far in business and romance.
You can look forward to successfully changing things up during the Mercury-Uranus square on August 16, because while the sudden increase in the day’s energy can trip up some people, you thrive on a faster pace. Bad news might arrive at some point, though, so try your best to stay focused.
A more positive Mercury-Jupiter trine on the twenty-first turns things around, and you should be able to rely on good luck to make a positive change in your life. Being in the right place at the right time or knowing someone at the top will finally pay off.
Communicative Mercury enters precise Virgo on August 29, so be sure to prepare for any speeches or important talks ahead of time. Otherwise, your audience is sure to notice and point out any inaccurate facts or mispronunciations.
