Welcome to February, Gemini. Last month, Venus, the planet of love and money, went direct, bringing abundance to your professional and personal life. While we're on the subject of love, let's be real, Gemini: You have a reputation as a heartbreaker, but who can blame you? Everyone wants to get down with a Gemini thanks to your charm and charisma. But when Juno, a planetary body known as the "asteroid of marriage," enters detached Aquarius on Tuesday, February 1, your fear of commitment may flare up. That's OK, but you do have to be honest — if you're over someone, kindly let them know. Conversely, if you're crushing hard, communicate that as well. During this time, particularly around Valentine's Day, it will be easy to fall into aloof tendencies.
On Thursday, February 3, your ruling planet, chatty Mercury, ends its retrograde and goes direct in practical Capricorn. This transit makes it easier to express yourself. While this helps you let any potential partner you're not so into down easy, with the influence of ambitious Capricorn, you also find yourself advocating for your needs at work. Remember, Gemini raises can be like dates. Sometimes, you need to ask for one to get it.
Of course, standing up for your financial and romantic needs can still be scary. Despite your reputation as the zodiac's flirt, you do have a sensitive side and are not immune to the fear of rejection. Thankfully, on Tuesday, February 8, Ceres, a healing asteroid associated with nurturing, moves into your sign, Gemini. This motherly influence feels like a cosmic hug. Not only does Ceres remind you that it's okay to ask for what you need, but even if you don't get it, you're on the right path, and you will be okay.
Your ruling planet, Mercury, enters aloof fellow air sign Aquarius on Monday, February 14, just in time for Valentine's Day. Continuing themes from earlier in the month, this influence may leave you feeling forgetful, or more specifically, oblivious to other people's Valentine's Day expectations. If you're single, cheers. You're allowed to be as aloof as you want this year. But, if you're partnered or dating, try to discuss plans beforehand, if you wish to stay in or celebrate, to reduce hurt feelings and drama on all sides of the equation.
Pisces season begins on Friday, February 18. So taking after this psychic sign, you may feel more sensitive than usual, darling Gemini, for the next few weeks. And, frankly, after all of that detached Aquarius energy that enhances any of your existing emotionally distant tendencies, this empathetic season couldn't come soon enough. So make time to connect intimately, through conversation, and not just sex, with your partner(s). And, regardless of whether you're single or taken, make time to check in and connect with yourself.
