Today we have the Sun grouped up with Venus and the Node, which can lead us into these moments of gravity. Where we might look at our direction and our wants and discover it's not exactly the path we want to be on. These sorts of things can hit harder, but maybe they need to. I've had a couple different friends experience earthquakes in the last week or two, and they're the types of things that shake you and wake you up. If you're in a daze, it can be a little jarring, but you snap to and immediately take note of where you are. This energy works quite a bit like that.
At times like this, you have to ask yourself if you're answering the call. Are you doing the things you need to in order to position yourself for future successes? Are you making the right decisions? Are you getting involved in the things you need to be getting involved in? People like to say "right place, right time", but if you're not in the right place, or it's the wrong time, then things can go awry.
Ultimately, with five planets retro, it's likely to seem as though things are moving backwards instead of forwards. But as you step backwards, further from the goal, it lets you get a broader perspective. Maybe you see a path that wasn't there before. Maybe you see where you made a mistake the first time around. These aren't the most pleasant transits to deal with, but they offer the potential for growth and to learn from mistakes. This is a chance for corrective actions and to reestablish the path you want to set out upon. Embrace these opportunities when they come. It might not be easy, but there will be plenty to learn along the way. Best of luck.
The Daily Horoscope for Gemini...
It's not going to be too hard for you to tell others how you really feel. How they respond though is something you might not be prepared for. You might have this tendency to let situations linger or leave jobs unfinished, which might not seem bad, but these are the things that tend to come back and cause frustrations during a Mercury retrograde cycle like this. So make sure you're being diligent about the things you commit to do. It's especially important because when you do get frustrated, it tends to have more emotional impact than you're used to.
