Gemini Sun Communicates

What I’ve noticed lately is that writing statements by hand in a stylized way is a popular form of expression among young people. Letters imbued with artistry and personal meaning are perhaps an answer to an overly digitized society. Or maybe they’re just the most natural way to communicate the mind. The fresh Gemini sun thinks so, anyway.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re after a feeling today. Who or what can give it to you? That is the question. And the answer may come in the form of a fellow fire sign (Leo or Sagittarius) on a similar mission.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone will try to convince you that what you’re contributing is very similar to what anyone would do. It’s not. Don’t be fooled. You’re a complete original and great in your very own way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The squeaky wheel will often get the grease. But sometimes it goes on squeaking and squeaking, and everyone gets so used to it that they don’t even hear it anymore. That’s when it’s time to stop squeaking and blow out.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). What feeling can you give to another? Do it. Being masterful at spreading emotion is a superpower more important than being able to turn invisible or leap tall buildings in a single bound.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It is said that a mind can only hold one thought at a time, but you’ll challenge that notion today by maintaining opposing ideas simultaneously. It’s not confusion; it’s expansion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some feel that showing enthusiasm for ideas that are not self-generated is admitting weakness. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Weak is the one who can’t forget himself and support his brother.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your work may be completely superior to the work of others, but if you don’t present it in a way that allows it to be readily accepted, it will not get the fighting chance it deserves.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In a new setting, it is only natural to want to fit in. You may feel an eagerness to please those around you. They may or may not be worthy of your efforts. Stay removed. Wait and see.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Instead of looking for omens in the falling of leaves and the flocking of birds, consult a maternal figure. Those who know you and have seen you grow will prove more prescient than you might think.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s said that no one gets a free ride. And yet you may note that some people, as it appears to you at least, have a mighty smooth deal. Don’t be jealous. Your disadvantage is actually an advantage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Right now, you are not too worried about any of it. Why not seek maximum enjoyment from your endeavors? Who knows how, but you have always found a way to pull through. Trust that.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The lower agenda seeks attention, craves comment and aches for acceptance. The higher agenda is too busy trying to solve, invent, fix, create, heal and celebrate to care what others think.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 24). Show off, even if you have to create your own opportunity to do so. People need to see you. Once they do, you’ll change their views and open their minds. June and July are the most romantic months. August is your chance at a big deal, but if you don’t nail it the first time, don’t despair, because October brings more chances. Practice up! Scorpio and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 14, 33 and 1.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: In partnerships, conflict is inevitable, but fighting is optional. TAURUS: Happy people look and seem happy. Don’t believe those who say they are happy but look sad or angry. GEMINI: You’ll cherish peaceful, serene moments with someone you love. For some, this will require a babysitter. CANCER: Can men and women really be just friends? You’ll test the theory. LEO: Attitude is everything in love and life. Sharing good energy will help a romantic bond. VIRGO: Women can be themselves anywhere, but men feel they can only let down their guard in intimate relationships. This theme will come up. LIBRA: Make an effort to prevent a relationship from getting boring and uninspired. SCORPIO: Someone finds all of the aspects of you attractive. SAGITTARIUS: You will change so many times over the course of your life — and that’s why you can never say never. CAPRICORN: You don’t need to defend your choices, but if you feel compelled to do so, be careful not to devalue the choices of others in the process. AQUARIUS: By acting predictably, you give the one you love a sense of emotional stability. PISCES: Variety is nice, but you prefer to develop an increasingly deep connection with one person.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Sagittarius and Gemini are both curious about the world, and they will bond in that curiosity. Gemini is often content with theoretical knowledge, but Sagittarius wants hands-on experience and so will encourage Gemini toward real-life adventure. Commitment makes both of these signs rather nervous, but they just may find themselves together year after year even without a formal commitment.
