Gemini Horoscope: March 2013

Prepare for Liftoff

Your top priority this month must be getting back on solid ground to address your personal and professional responsibilities. Tidy up loose ends and complete unfinished business to clear the decks so you can jump into new projects. On March 8, a sextile of industrious Saturn and incisive Pluto connects your 6th House of Employment and your 8th House of Deep Sharing to increase focus and efficiency. This stabilizing aspect first occurred on December 26, 2012, and it will recur on September 21 to ensure that you maintain a tight ship when working with others.

The inspirational Pisces New Moon on March 11 falls in your 10th House of Career, spawning creative ideas and activities in your professional life. Macho Mars' conjunction to this lunation kicks up enthusiasm, but it could motivate you to take on tasks for which you're not properly prepared.

Your passion to spend time with friends and groups sharing new experiences is spurred when Mars moves into your collaborative 11th House and pioneering Aries on March 12. Continuing this buzz of social excitement, the Sun enters Aries on March 20, marking the Spring Equinox, followed by alluring Venus on March 21. But do be cautious about assuming additional obligations, because your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde until March 17, complicating communications and blurring details.

The lovely Libra Full Moon on March 27 opposes Venus and illuminates your 5th House of Romance and Creativity, which is a green light for opening your heart. However, lunar oppositions to macho Mars and erratic Uranus and a square with punishing Pluto can provoke extreme emotions. Fortunately, wise Jupiter's trine to the Moon from your flexible sign should help you quickly alter your course if you're heading into dangerous waters.

Keep in Mind this Month

If you grab on to life with both hands, you could wind up holding nothing. Instead of scattering your forces, concentrate on what you value the most.

Key Dates for Gemini


March 6-9: Window of Opportunity

March 6 is ideal for patching over wounded relationships in your workplace and reestablishing peace. The sweet Mercury-Venus conjunction that day may stimulate creative concepts that aren't ready for prime time, but will take shape with Mercury's favorable aspects to ruthlessly efficient Saturn and Pluto on March 7. Pipe dreams will dissipate, but ideas worth pursuing may get the support of competent people. Verbose Mercury's square to Jupiter in chatty Gemini on March 9 tempts you to say more than you should or overinflate a claim. It is, though, a wonderful opportunity to open your mind, as long as you don't lose your sense of proportion.

March 17: All Aboard

This is a pivotal time, as your ruling planet Mercury stops its backward trek in your 10th House of Career and begins moving forward again. The Moon in your sign today increases your sensitivity to shifts in the wind, motivating you to take a more proactive approach to your job. Advancing your interests could be a slow process. Like a train pulling out of a station, though, Mercury will pick up speed during the next couple of weeks.
