Because Geminis are adaptable and focused on building a public life around integrity and charm, 2022 will be an auspicious year for the twins. This year will be all about balancing your lively social life and the dedication and hard work in terms of your profession and soul’s purpose. In 2022, you’re reveling in a thriving social life, but you’re also being shown how to take your time and pay attention to the details within your career and make commitments. Thinking of the long-term may seem uncomfortable, but you are in the business of boundary setting. This goes for all of your relationships, and it goes both ways. Be mindful of how you connect with others, and be careful not to
overwhelm your loved ones with the chaos that might ensue in your life. Rather, remind them that you respect their time and effort, and find the right mediums to release tension through therapy or mindfulness practice.
Gemini, Who You Really Are
Geminis are communicative, intelligent, and sociable. It’s important for them to feel free and related to, therefore communication and expression are key to a thriving Gemini. You are ruled by Mercury – the planet of the mind, travel, and communication – making you particularly drawn to ideas, details, and even outlandish opinions or ideas. Being ruled by the third house of communication and siblings, family and expression are important. Geminis are very charming because they know how to talk you up, but they also know how to listen. Because you’re a mutable sign, you’re flexible and able to adapt to any situation. As an air sign, intellect and your social image are of utmost importance to you, so you do what you can to nourish your friendships and maintain a bubbling social circle.
It’s a good idea to let a Gemini free as they’re part of the trio of air signs, and therefore value independence. As a Gemini, you are easily bored, especially with conventional topics that you tend to find cumbersome, but you do value the details in the mundane to a certain degree (in that you share a planet with detail-oriented Virgo). In order for you to thrive, you must have a platform and a way to express your exciting ideas.
Career and Money
When Venus, which is the planet that represents finances and beauty, enters its retrograde in Capricorn from January 1 to 29, you will be feeling extra tied down and perhaps a bit frustrated with the concerted effort it takes to see your career take off. In order to achieve the goals of wealth that you’ve set your sights on, you’ll need to put in the labour it takes to see it through, rather than take backroads (meaning you’ll need to crack down on your own tendencies to take shortcuts).
Aside from retrograding periods, you’ll find that Jupiter is bearing gifts of abundance in your career and finances from May to October, and it’s totally okay to revel in it! You have extremely innovative ideas, but you’ll need to learn the discipline to get there – it’s best to act on them now as opposed to waiting for the ‘right moment’. Rather than do the least amount of work in return for the biggest results, you’ll want to really trust the process and accept its tedious parts (like planning) because it’s those details that will serve you the most amount of success.
Friends and Family
The new year is looking promising when it comes to nourishing your friendships and strengthening your sense of family. Because your social life is incredibly sacred to you, you’re likely going to notice a bigger presence of it in the year to come. Eclipse seasons in the spring and fall are helping you re-evaluate your friendships, which is likely to bring you positive clarity rather than drama. It’s important to set boundaries with both your friendships and members of your family, and it’s equally as important to take initiative in terms of making plans and consistently showing up for both.
With Uranus going retrograde in Taurus from January 18 to August 24, you may be drawn to drama or dealing with an uncomfortable situation in your inner circle, but Jupiter in Pisces will restore your dreams of a flourishing friend group and a charming, popular public image.
Love and Romance
2022 is getting pretty serious in terms of love and relationships, so you may struggle with coming to terms with your relationship to commitment. You’re a mutable air sign, meaning you’re not one to be tied down for too long, especially if you feel restricted. However, with this retrograde happening in Capricorn, you’re going to have to face the music and decide if the relationship you have now is what you want in the long run or if you want to look for love elsewhere. It’s a good idea to really assess and look towards the future, even if it’s uncomfortable or feels restricting – you need to ensure that you’re on the same page as your partner (or potential partners) when it comes to your needs and wants, and decide whether they’re being met.
The tail end of June is looking auspicious for love as Venus moves into your sign of Gemini. You may feel especially confident in what you want, or feel particularly excited and thrilled about the pleasure that is brought into your life in the form of a new relationship or healthy sex life. If you’re single, this is an ideal time to mingle in social settings, perhaps at mixers or bars. If you’re committed, this is a period of mutual understanding and clear communication.
Gemini, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
This year is going to see a lot of healing and repairing relationships from the inside out. Your social life is glistening, but you need to create boundaries and re-evaluate how you show up in your relationships. It’s a good idea to practise your inner script and how you communicate with yourself so you can ensure a healthy relationship with others, too.
