It’s a good thing you like being busy, Gemini! Because 2022 is likely to be an action-packed year for you. With Jupiter splitting his time between Pisces (your house of career) and Aries (your house of plans, projects, and groups), you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied both personally and professionally.
Jupiter in Pisces (December 28, 2021-May 10, 2022; October 27-December 20, 2022) boosts your visibility, which brings more exciting work opportunities your way. Then, with Jupiter in Aries (May 10-October 27), it’s group activities galore! From professional associations, political parties, and religious communities, to more informal gatherings of friends or fandoms, there’s no shortage of options for getting involved.
Gemini, this might make you feel like a kid in a candy store. But as fun as it is to sample all the different flavors, eventually you’ll have to narrow it down. With Saturn in Aquarius, this could mean finally settling on a major, going back to school to finish your degree, or getting more serious about your spiritual path. It’s all about disciplining your mind and distilling the knowledge and wisdom of your experiences.
Saturn could also restrict your range when it comes to travel and other adventures. But this just means you’ll have to create your own excitement—especially once Mars enters your sign (August 20, 2022-March 25, 2023). This transit can really amp up your energy! So make sure to channel it into plenty of interesting activities, to prevent yourself from becoming anxious or bored.
That said, Mars in Gemini carries some risk of scattering your energies, or burning the candle at both ends. Mindfulness, meditation, and meditative forms of movement will be useful tools for centering yourself and calming your nervous system.
In such a stimulating year, Gemini, you’ll need to rest and recharge regularly. But it may also be time to rid yourself of old habits that just drain away your energy and vitality. Fortunately, the Taurus North Node, Scorpio South Node, and their associated eclipses (April 30, May 15, October 25, and November 8) assist you with both—offering a whole new lease on life.
For love to last, Gemini, it’s got to be built on a solid foundation. Fortunately, with Venus retrograde in Capricorn, you begin 2022 by reevaluating, repairing, and rebuilding relationships.
From trust and intimacy issues, to the quality (and quantity) of your sex life, to the ways in which you share (or don’t share) resources and power, you’re leaving no stone unturned. And while this can be scary, it’s also extremely empowering. Recognizing that a relationship is unworkable, or simply that it needs more work, puts you in the position to make the necessary changes. Once Venus goes direct in Capricorn (January 29-March 5), her conjunctions with Mars and Pluto will help you transform your love life in whatever ways you desire.
Self-respect and self-love are key. So you’ll do well to focus on cultivating these, especially while Venus is in your sign (June 22-July 17). It won’t hurt that you’re attracting plenty of admirers, and fielding an abundance of social invitations. But ultimately, Gemini, these might just be fun diversions for you. You’re not necessarily looking for love at this time—although it could find you, just the same. More likely, you’re focusing on friendships and pursuing various personal passions.
It’s during Libra season that love interests will make you offers you can’t refuse. Mercury in Libra (August 25-September 23, retrograde September 9-23; October 10-29) lights up your phone with flirty photos, texts, and calls. But as he opposes Jupiter in Aries three times, any misunderstandings or miscommunications could easily get blown out of proportion. A little bit of charm and grace will go a long way toward smoothing things over with your sweetheart.
After all, Gemini, if they’re happy, you’re happy. Just make sure that you’re also expressing your own feelings, desires, and preferences. From October 11-26, a Grand Air Trine between inner planets in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, and Mars in your sign gets the conversation going.
It might grow a little more heated in November and December, as Venus, Mercury, and the sun transit your opposite sign of Sagittarius. But keep an open mind and heart, and you may come away with a whole new understanding of your partner... and yourself.
It only looks like an overnight success, Gemini. While Jupiter in Pisces (December 28, 2021-May 10, 2022; October 27-December 20, 2022) will certainly boost your professional profile this year, in reality this moment has been many years in the making.
Jupiter’s sextile with Uranus (February 17) presents the chance to go public with something you’ve been working on under the radar. Whether you’re the face of this project, or your role is more behind-the-scenes, it’s some of your most inspired work—so don’t be shy about taking the credit!
Impostor syndrome could sneak in around the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Pisces (April 12). But this might be one of those times where you just have to fake it ‘til you make it. Make sure, though, to practice “truth in advertising” on your resume, in job interviews, and online. After all, Gemini, there’s no need to embellish or exaggerate. Your actual accomplishments, experience, and skills ought to be impressive enough!
A Jupiter/Pluto sextile (May 3) could find you attracting positive attention from influencers in your industry. It pays to have powerful people in your corner, who can pull some strings, open some doors, or simply put in a good word for you.
That said, you’ll want to avoid getting entangled in office politics and gossip. With the South Node and two eclipses in Scorpio this year (lunar May 15, solar October 25), it’s time to break old cycles of negativity, and eliminate any habits of yours that contribute to creating a toxic work environment. Instead, use your influence with coworkers and customers to generate more positive energy in the workplace. After all, Gemini, you’re not just in it for money or status—although Jupiter in your house of career is likely to bring you more of both in 2022. The real reward is feeling emotionally and spiritually fulfilled by what you do.
