The planet Saturn teaches us discipline and responsibility. Saturn is a planet of lessons and, oftentimes, these lessons come through restrictions. Not restrictions that are meant to limit us, though -- restrictions that push us to find a better, more mature and developed way of doing things. When we work against Saturn, we will meet roadblock after roadblock, but working with Saturn's energy will open up avenues and bring us the success we seek.
Gemini, the most scatterbrained of all the zodiac signs, is a sign that could use a little focus! When Saturn transits through this quick and curious sign, it helps bring stability and direction to the way we think and communicate. It's up to us to be clear, direct, and wise with the information we give and receive.

When Saturn is in Gemini
Gemini is normally a very lively and versatile sign, loving to absorb as much information as possible. This brings us to a problem, though, when there is no limit to this information -- becoming overloaded with data and details can actually deter us from our goals. Enter Saturn. Saturn's transit through Gemini helps to ground Gemini's "more is better" thought process and hone in on the information that is actually usable. With Saturn in Gemini, it's not about how much you know, it's about what you can do with what you know. It's about taking this vast amount of information and turning it into real knowledge -- knowledge that has meaning and can actually go somewhere.
Gemini is known to be one of the most social signs because of its love of communication. Whether in person or through technology, communicating with others is one of the easiest ways to obtain new information. With Saturn here, though, we may experience many problems in this realm. But remember -- Saturn brings up these problems not to hurt us, but to help us. Misunderstandings force us to step back and consider how (or if) we are getting our message across -- what were our intentions and what was actually received, and how do those differ? When we can identify this answer, we know where the communication broke down, and we learn how to be more careful and clear in the future.
Technology is like lifeblood to Gemini. It's a way to stay connected to others and have almost all the information you could need right at your fingertips -- almost. Technology can only take us so far, and while it can help us communicate with others even at the furthest distance, it can also put up a wall between real, one-on-one relationships. While Saturn is in Gemini, technology breakdowns, misread messages, and incorrect or unresearched sources of data are Saturn's way of forcing us to rethink how we are putting out and receiving ideas and information. Are we missing the emotional cues we receive when speaking face to face? Are we doing our part to ensure the information we pass on is correct and meaningful? Are we spending so much time staring at a screen that we are missing out on what is happening directly in front of us? These are lessons we all must learn during Saturn in Gemini.
The problem with Saturn in Gemini is that it can force us to become so exact and cerebral that we lose the importance of the spirit. Not everything can be drilled down to a specific set of facts and calculations -- some information is only available through our souls and our subconscious, and Saturn has a tendency to draw the curtains on anything intangible. We must remember to keep things like hope and faith and the unknown alive during this transit so as not to lose the magic and balance within us.
Saturn Retrograde in Gemini
While Saturn moves backward in Gemini, the work you've been doing on processing information and communicating more effectively comes up for review. Have you been noticing Saturn's limitations, and acting accordingly to correct them? If so, then this retrograde can be a time when you realize how much easier it is to get your message across and discern which information is useful and which is unnecessary. If you haven't been paying attention, however, Saturn is ready to throw a reality check your way...
Saturn is the planet of karma, and if you've been ignoring the lessons Saturn is trying to teach you, you'll find the same communication mishaps, scattered information, and mental difficulties that have been plaguing you resurface during this retrograde. There's no getting off the hook with Saturn, so use this time to get your ducks in a row. Realize that it's up to YOU to get your message across the right way. It's up to YOU to fact check the information delivered to you. It's up to YOU to focus your mind on useful, tangible details that you've been neglecting. You are responsible for what goes into your mind and comes out of your mouth.
If you were born with Saturn in Gemini
Your mind is your greatest asset -- and perhaps your greatest challenge! Being born with Saturn in Gemini, you've got a keen ability to articulate information, solve problems, and handle details. Your mind overpowers your heart and you prefer to stick to facts over feelings. This makes you especially business savvy, as you are able to work easily with a vast amount of information that would be overwhelming to others.
The problem is, while your confidence in a data-driven world is very strong, your confidence in yourself is probably lacking. People with Saturn in Gemini often struggle with self-doubt. When you see so many paths of learning and opportunity, it can actually cause you to clam up and become very unsure of which is the right or best path. Once you start dwelling on this doubt mentally, it creates a fear within you that prevents you from moving forward. You may have an especially hard time in a school setting or in keeping a job long-term.
As always with Saturn, however, these difficulties are meant to guide you. Instead of letting a lack of confidence stop you in your tracks, you're being called upon to consider ways to overcome your doubt and to find a way around your fears, in order to help you grow. Things change -- always -- and expecting to select one path and walk it for the rest of your life isn't realistic. Try to embrace Gemini's flexible attitude and realize that sometimes there is more than one answer, and that it's OK to experiment. In fact, experimenting and trying multiple paths is a very effective method of learning -- something Saturn and Gemini can both appreciate and reward.
