Areas of Expansion in 2013 for Gemini: Personality, Body Image, Finances, Comfort, Possessions, Values
Your Gemini 2013 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 25, 2013, your personality, image, and confidence in yourself continue to expand to new levels. Gemini, you are seeing whole new possibilities. Your vision of life is panoramic. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it's pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
In 2013, some of you are entering into, or have already entered into, partnerships. Many of you tend to see eye to eye with a partner or find that a significant other seems quite supportive of your efforts towards self-improvement. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might be especially rewarding. You feel confident about your behavior aligning with what you believe is right in this cycle that began in June of 2012.
You are seeking out a new beginning - a fresh start, of sorts - and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, for which you are now enjoying some level of freedom from), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You won't feel much like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others.
Potential negatives with this position: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness. See to it that these things don't ruin an otherwise excellent period. As well, in your desire to "start over", watch that you don't blind yourself to responsibilities from your past. Some challenges with your work or health could at times interfere with your good humor. Avoid behaving in a way that gets authority figures all riled up.
From June 25th onward, money, personal possessions, and self-worth begin to expand and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you'll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
This cycle that will be in influence until July 2014 is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You might also more easily attract support from others (but be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan - spend wisely). The resources of a spouse or partner could help strengthen your own sense of security - some of you could combine resources with someone through a new living arrangement, or otherwise share expenses so that you feel more secure and have more money available to you. You should certainly watch for overspending. July is better for making big-ticket item purchases, if necessary. You could enjoy a sense that a significant person in your life shares the same set of values as you, and there can be much sharing of comfort and pleasures between you. Even so, you might be encouraging some laziness or over-indulgence in one another.
Potential negatives: Is it really possible that more money or resources could be negative? Yes, when the attitude towards money is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you're overconfident about your ability to make money and to continue to do so, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future, and this tendency tends to be especially strong in September. August can bring a conflict over someone else's resources or money.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Work, Health, Daily routines
Your Gemini 2013 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules work, health, daily routines, employees, pets, and habits. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen. This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
Tests can come to work and working relationships during this cycle. Responsibilities in your daily life can weigh heavily - they appear magnified, although Jupiter's influence in your sign until June can certainly help to minimize this. Do be sure, however, that you are tending to your responsibilities, and not letting them pile up. Some of you might even experience some form of loss or scandal on the work front, or possibly some heavy-handed activity and power plays from co-workers.
For those of you unhappy with your job or out of work, you are not likely to jump to grab just any position now. You are looking for something mature, long-term, and reflective of your values. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might seem to be slim. There can be confusion about where you are headed, ultimately, in your professional life.
The monotonous part of your work can seem harder to take, and it's up to you to work on restructuring enough to make it work for you. Try not to see flaws and complain. Take it upon yourself to make whatever adjustments you can that will improve your working conditions.
This can be true of daily routines, not just working conditions. Health matters might be a little more problematic than usual.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Friendships, Long-term Plans, Networking
Your 2013 Gemini Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy period in which friendships and group associations may have been unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This long-term influence continues throughout 2013. You are more attracted to people who are free-spirited, individualistic, and possibly even eccentric. Your social life is bound to be very colorful this year and in coming years. Challenges in friendships may come in May, August, and November, when unreliability or abrupt changes can pull you away from your center.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Finances, Sharing, Intimacy, Health, Work, Spirituality
Your 2013 Gemini Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Attitudes towards dependencies on others, finances, and intimacy continue to transform this year. March to April and September to October are strong for these matters. You can really work on moving forward during these periods, when you are more able to see the practical or long-term benefits of making important changes. Some of you could gain support through a partner or loans in order to push forward a work project or business. You might make important lifestyle changes now, and this may be connected to the job you do.
In 2013, your attitude towards service, health, work, and privacy are evolving in important ways. Circumstances are such that you need to develop some healthy habits, routines, and schedules. You are called upon to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It's time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. It's time to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly, but it's also important to take charge of your lifestyle and habits. Unexpected complications can force you to take the rest you need, unless you recognize this need and feed it. Work on balance between mental health and physical health; and between work and rest.
Your Planetary Ruler in 2013: Your ruler, Mercury, moves through the zodiac fairly quickly, and reflects your many and varied interests. Mercury's retrograde periods are times for reflection and perhaps some backtracking. In 2013, Mercury retrogrades three times (which is quite common), and these periods are from February 23-March 17, June 26-July 20, and October 21-November 10.
