February has been really good with travel, communication and expansion of knowledge. It has been good to me, and to most of us. It was the time I started reassessing everything, letting go of what doesn’t work anymore, and learning about new and exciting things.
Not to say that it didn’t come with a few stumbling blocks. After putting up my site, I experienced a ton of shit with my hosting, my internet provider and my electrical provider. I was forced to sit still, just when I was about to pick up on my blogging momentum.
There was also this issue where someone accused me of stealing. It’s funny thinking about it right now. I would have loved to be really guilty about it because then I can just apologize and try to make things right. But I didn’t steal anything. And being innocently accused feels more terrible than being caught guilty.
I remember being reminded at the start of February to stay away from drama. And so I did. I can’t really pinpoint how I managed to get out of that situation but life kind of figured it out for me. Normally, I don’t do confrontations and I’d hate harboring ill feelings against people so I just allowed myself to be accused. I don’t like the thought of defending myself and my innocence because it kind of sounds like I’m merely scape goating. But all’s well that ends well.
And here we are, March! Should you tiptoe or take the plunge? Charge forward or wait patiently? Here’s an excerpt from your monthly Gemini reading from AstroStyle.
Make your power moves, Gemini. The Sun is sailing through the top of your chart and blazing a fiery trail through Pisces. As your tenth house of career and prestige burns bright through February 18, ambitious quests take flight.
This month’s misbehaving planet is Jupiter, who’s causing trouble with two cosmic clashes. The expansive planet, which is in Libra and your fifth house of self-expression, will form tense aspects to radical Uranus and controlling Pluto.
March 2 is the first Jupiter skirmish, a tense opposition to disruptive Uranus in Aries that could bring knee-jerk moves and changes from left field. Jupiter is in your passionate fifth house while Uranus is in your detached eleventh house.
With Uranus in your teamwork and technology zone, you could clash with colleagues over creative differences or have a jealous showdown with a friend.
If all else fails, retreat to your lair at the March 12 Virgo full moon, which illuminates your domestic fourth house. A family issue could come into the open or you might decide to reconnect with your roots.
Your social nature comes back with a vengeance on March 20, when the Sun moves into Aries and your eleventh house of networking.
Just as you’re savoring the feel-good vibes, the month ends with another Jupiter thump. On March 30, the red-spotted planet butts heads with secretive Pluto in Capricorn and your private eighth house.
With Jupiter and Pluto in intimate zones of your chart, an ex could resurface, stirring up big-time drama. While the power rush might feel exciting, the complications won’t be worth those momentary thrills.
That being said, we can all agree that this Gemini March will be a hell lot of crazy. One step forward and two steps back, if we aren’t very careful. Tensions are high, emotions are everywhere. It’s going to push all of us to the very edge. However, there’s always room for positive thoughts this month. We can still walk in the blaze of glory amidst the chaos as long as we stay grounded and aware of the possibilities ahead of us.
Choose your battles
There’s bound to be some tension this month between you and your family or friends or other colleagues. And it’s not going to be pretty if you face it densely–full of emotions, lacking logic.
Whether we like it or not, this is normal and most of the time inevitable. Choose your battles well, Gemini. You might be fighting for something that isn’t well worth your time. You may not even be involved in the first place!
As much as you always want to keep the peace, some problems just isn’t yours to solve. You know you don’t always have to be the hero. It’s going to be wasted emotional investment in your part. And when the tensions get tougher, it will ultimately drag you along with it. So it’s better not to get involved in the first place.
Don’t choose sides. Don’t be an aggressor. Learn to shut up and keep your opinions to yourself.
Work hard, but don’t get too worked up
March also presents huge opportunities to step up your game when it comes to your ambitions.
As usual, it is highly recommended not to do any slacking off. Keep your eyes open for every opportunity and grab it while it’s hot. Figure out a way to leverage your passions and keep your momentum. Use this time to meet new people and expand your network.
Work hard and work smart. If there’s any month to be aggressive about climbing the corporate ladder or expanding your business network, Gemini, by all means, do it this month.
However, don’t get it all in your head. And don’t get too worked up about it.
Fortune favors the bold that get shit done, but it isn’t the case all the time. We might invest more emotion and expectation in our work, but not all can wake up millionaires the next day. It’s a different pace for everyone, and it’s useless to stress about how slow your own progress is. Be aggressive, but don’t be too competitive. Don’t be so hard on yourself.
The point is, you’re working hard. You’re putting your heart in what you do. Learn to fall in love with the process and accept the remunerations as extra bonuses.
Don’t do anything stupid.
You know the times you thought you can get away with anything? Not this month, Gemini. Not this month.
March really entails a lot of looking before leaping. Karma is extra focused and fired up. If you’re feeling a little frisky, gossipy and reckless, especially on social media and in personal affairs, here’s my advice. Don’t fucking do it! Because it will blow up in your face faster and nastier than you’d expect it.
I know a part of you is just craving for some drama, possibly out of boredom. Self-destruction is something we tend to do when we feel like we’re being too Stepford or dutiful, following the social norms and everything in order to stay on the right lane. You have a tendency to be suspicious when things are going right. And you tend to create your own problems just to stir things up. Not this month though.
You can’t simply hope for the best after messing around this month. If you do something bad, expect something bad to happen. You can’t be reckless and open the door for regrets, Gemini. If something feels wrong, it is wrong.
You can’t possibly do something that seem momentarily fun, but is generally idiotic. Something like, hooking up with someone (when you’re in a relationship), spreading rumors, getting too drunk, picking a fight with anyone, making mountains out of molehills, being extra aggressive and provocative, those sorts. It will yield stupid results.
But what the hell, Gemini. Go be young and stupid anyway.
“You can’t be old and wise if you were never young and crazy.”
