2013: Gemini Overview
2012 brought you so many relationship lessons, your head may still be spinning as you move into the dark and transformative waters of 2013. Chances are, you have finally decided whether you are in or out (although the inner dialogue and debate is eternal). Now you are being called to go deeper into your experience of commitment and intimacy. Of course, you're known to favor the shallow end, Gemini, but you'll be surprised at how much you crave the depths this year. You are willing to put in the hard work and do whatever it takes to make your life more solid, stable and secure than ever before. Even if this seems to go against your ever changeable nature, you'll find great comfort in consistency over the next few years.
Saturn, the cosmic taskmaster, is taking up long-term residence in your zone of health and work until 2015. The more energy you put into your current projects and daily duties, the greater the reward. You're learning the value of patience, perseverance and hard work. Finding the proper balance between work and health is also a theme that comes into sharp focus. How well are you taking care of yourself? You may find yourself drawn to a more austere, sensible and -- yes -- healthy lifestyle now. Eating to live, instead of living to eat, becomes a viable theme. In order to keep up the energy to support the heaps of projects you've got brewing (as per usual), you'll need to make sure your health and vitality are top notch. Embracing a healthy lifestyle makes everything possible and keeps your life running like a well-oiled machine.
You'll be thrilled to hear that the winds of change are finally dying down as the last two plus years of crazy eclipse patterns in your sign are finished. The dust is finally getting ready to settle and you can begin a potent building phase in your life. Making time for your inner world, spirituality and self-inquiry becomes a necessity rather than a luxury now. Carve out time to sleep, dream, write, draw, journal or whatever it is that your soul needs to thrive during such a busy and productive time. You will need this in order to balance your heavy workload.
A group project may be floundering early in the day. Looks like it will be up to you to make sure it heads in the right direction. Later, you withhold vital information from your tyke, all in the name of insuring they have some surprises over the holidays.
Communication is your area of expertise, and today your energy makes every word sound just right to the person it's meant for. Make the most of this, because soon you will pop back into normal mode.
During a month that will likely require lots of cooking, it's good to know a few go-to clean-up tips. One great way to get dishes clean is to have a sinkful of hot, soapy water ready. Just slide the dirties in there, and by the time you're done cooking, you can wipe and rinse.
Stopping to smell the roses isn't frivolous, it's necessary. Skip a workout in favor of a long walk, use a lunch hour to sniff the latest fragrances at a haute cosmetics counter or just wander aimlessly in your favorite upscale neighborhood. It'll refresh your senses and your soul.
