Gemini Monthly Horoscope


Roll call! April is all about tapping into people power. So who’s on Team Gemini and who’s decidedly not? With the Sun, Mercury retrograde AND a total solar eclipse in Aries activating your eleventh house of collaborations, the cast of characters could undergo a major change. 

April’s stars will rally your loyal allies and possibly reveal a frenemy or two in the process. Not fun, but at least you’ll know who you’re dealing with, Gemini. Observe carefully before jumping to any conclusions now.

Let’s start with Mercury, your ruling planet, the galactic guardian of communication, travel and technology. Three to four times a year, Mercury turns retrograde, appearing to go backward from our vantage point on Earth. As a result, anything under Mercury’s jurisdiction can also go haywire. From wild misunderstandings to crashed software and broken appliances to plans that go haywire, Mercury retrograde can try everyone’s patience—and put you in the hot seat. 

This year, Mercury will be retrograde in Aries and your teamwork zone from April 1 to 25. Double down on preventative measures and make sure you have a solid support system in place to troubleshoot the inevitable plot twists. Go the extra mile in giving your collaborators clear instructions, and then check to confirm they really understood the marching orders. Do the same when someone hands YOU an assignment. Even if you feel silly for repeating back what you “think you heard,” you can’t be too careful now.

If you’re traveling with a group this month, go triple-strength on those precautions. And pro tip: Since both Mercury and the eleventh house are associated with technology, you might want to delay or scale back any big digital launches. Make sure you have the people and processes in place and thoroughly tested if you roll out a big offering this April.

Mercury retrograde alone would be enough to navigate but wait…class=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” there’s more! On April 8, a total solar eclipse in Aries will sweep through this same group-centric zone of your chart. This super-powered supermoon coud reshuffle the ranks of Team Gemini. Or it could bring an unexpected opportunity to join forces with a brand-new crew.

Eclipses come in pairs, and the first one, on March 25, was in Libra, activating your fifth house of passion, romance and fame. Your love life may have undergone an unexpected infusion, or someone who wasn’t a true match could have been “eclipsed” away. 

Solar eclipses happen at new moons, marking a boldfaced fresh start. They can lift you out of your current reality and drop you unexpectedly into a new and unfamiliar one. (Welcome to Oz, Dorothy!) Pay close attention to the events and groups you’re invited to near this April 8 eclipse. Step out of your comfort zone and spend time around people whose energy lifts you up and exposes you to new and inspiring realities.

Do you have a wound around belonging? Well, let’s be real—that’s part of being human. April 8 will feature SIX placements in Aries: the Sun, moon, Mercury (retrograde), Venus, the north node and healer-feeler comet Chiron, and these issues could finally be up for some deep repair work at the solar eclipse. 

We’ve nicknamed this event the Chironeclipse since Chiron is in a tight conjunction with the Sun and moon. And its medicine could bring closure to a painful pattern where you’ve felt ostracized, judged or not accepted when you tried to fit in. Now you may see new pathways to joining forces without sacrificing your authenticity or pretending to care about things you have zero interest in. 

As much as we want to tell you to unleash your no-filters Gemini self and let ‘er rip, you’ll still want to take Mercury retrograde precautions this month. That includes being discerning about which invitations you actually RSVP “yes” to now. It would be easy to get overloaded trying to be here, there and everywhere—whether that’s attending a can’t-miss social event or filling in for a wayward team member who’s struggling or MIA.

By the third week of the month, you could be ready for a major timeout. Go easy on yourself starting April 19, when the Sun begins its monthlong plunge through Taurus and your healing, restful twelfth house. You might need to cancel a few of the social obligations or postpone them a month. 

Over the next four weeks, tie up loose ends in preparation for your birthday and Gemini season, which begins on May 20. Until then, take it slow and respect your feelings. Don’t force yourself to take on more than you can humanly handle—this is your time to rest and reset! Leave some white space on your calendar and lean on your team.

That said, none of the zodiac signs can slip off the grid immediately. On April 20, there’s a momentous meetup (conjunction) of expansive Jupiter and disruptor Uranus, a phenomenon that happens once every 14 years and frees us from both internal and external constraints. Where have you been holding yourself back or driving under the speed limit? Get ready for a major mental and spiritual makeover, Gemini.

The last Jupiter-Uranus conjunction was in Pisces in 2010. This one is in Taurus, their first connection here since May 1941. It will be an interesting cocktail as these two ultra-authentic forces descend on your clandestine and mystical twelfth house. Hidden information could come to the surface quickly, almost like a second eclipse! 

Your dreams could be rich with prophetic messages today, both about yourself and the future of the world. You could be inspired to dive deeper into a practice like meditation or breathwork, or to travel somewhere that elevates your consciousness. Is it time to sign up for a transformational retreat? Explore plant medicine’s power? Develop your abilities as an artist? 

While your sign leans toward the analytical, the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction could spark a right-brain revolution. No more hiding in your head and thoughts, Gemini! Jupiter and Uranus are here to open your heart and to learn to use that as one of your superpowers. Fun fact: Did you know that the heart’s electromagnetic field has been scientifically proven to be 5,000 times stronger than the brain’s? Developing emotional intelligence is not only healthy, it’s efficient, too!

Speaking of health, your wellness is in the spotlight on April 23, when the Scorpio full moon beams into your sixth house of health, fitness and well-being. You could get an early(ish) blast of motivation to start spring training. If you’ve been ignoring a nagging ache or pain or putting off your routine checkups, get some appointments on the calendar, stat! 

The sixth house rules helpful people, and you may decide to upgrade Team Gemini with a few capable hands—or bid adieu to some slackers. Look for ways you can make a difference in your community. Is it time to add some volunteer or service work into your schedule? Pets are also ruled by the sixth house, making this a great time to adopt a furry friend or to get some extra cuddles in.

When your ruler, Mercury, turns direct on April 25, things start looking even brighter. Set your countdown clock! A month from now, on May 25, lucky Jupiter will begin a yearlong visit to Gemini. You’ll get a true spring awakening then as a fresh 12-year chapter of your life begins. We know how ready you must be for THAT, Gemini. 

Until then, you’re wrapping up a yearlong Jupiter in Taurus cycle, which has taught you amazing but sometimes painful lessons about the art of surrender. Over the next 30 days, practice releasing your worries and fears to the universe. Allow strategies and solutions to arrive from surprising sources. Although you may feel like you’ve been stumbling through the dark without a flashlight, you’ve actually been doing deep inner work. This personal-growth phase will pay off when you discover just how much emotional resilience you’ve actually built through this journey.

Mars and Venus tandem travel through the zodiac for the first five days of April, so make the most of it while it lasts! Until the 5th, they’re synced up in Pisces, helping you clarify your big-picture relationship goals. Not just that, Gemini, but you’re also evaluating the “work-love balance.” How can you support each other’s outside objectives—career, family duties, bucket-list dreams—while also making sure you fill your relationship’s tanks? 

Single Twins may have an epiphany about the standard you’ve set: Perhaps you need to elevate the bar or lower it just enough to allow a mere mortal to slide through. When the heavenly lovebirds part ways on April 5, Venus heads into Aries until the 29th, charging up your experimental, unloving eleventh house. 

Rejoice! Levity returns, along with a bevy of interested parties. Unattached Twins could have the best time texting three (or more) potentials. Attached? Get out and mingle more as a pair. Venus moves on to Taurus and your soulful twelfth house on the 29th, but Mars heads into Aries on the 30th, keeping this laid-back and unconventional energy flowing into May.

The first full month of spring is normally off to the races, but this year it comes with a twist. The Sun is in Aries and your collaborative eleventh house until April 19, lighting up group projects and bringing dynamic team members your way, especially at the April 8 Aries new moon, a total solar eclipse. 

But easy does it there, Gemini. Your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde in this same collaborative zone from April 1 to 25, which could make it hard to get consensus with your crew. Hold off on any digital launches, marketing events and other group debuts—or prepare to do a lot of extra wrangling and planning.

With go-getter Mars in Pisces and your ambitious tenth house until April 30, your career is a heat zone. You’ll be navigating short deadlines and long hours, or you could feel the pressure to cross a key milestone this month. Clients and bosses alike could come across as extra demanding. If you’re the one in charge, add an extra dose of patience, along with crystal-clear deadlines and instructions.

With the restless red planet nipping at your heels, you won’t be able to wait until May to get important plans in place. Wherever possible, hold off on the execution and implementation. Focus on making sure the full agenda is lined up and everyone knows their places and paces. Life may not be a dress rehearsal, but April kind of is. Practice will make for the most professional debut possible!
