You're a rising star in 2016, Gemini, but it will keep constant effort to avoid slipping back down. Are you up for this? Of course you are!
Your attention is zeroed in on making progress, getting and holding on to those things you love most, and on not being rushed into making decisions. This year, you will ask all the right questions and refuse to proceed without solid answers and information.
The Mercury retrograde periods in May and then in September may be your most accomplished and solid times. September is especially potent. With Mercury in Virgo, you can easily self-correct and nudge situations and relationships to where you want them.
Home life should bring much satisfaction, and possibly some karmic insights, particularly in September and October. Family mysteries may be solved, or resolved.
2016 looks to be both sensible and sensuous, Gemini. Home and family life are well-ordered but not dull and ordinary. The chief challenge might be to resist the temptation to get too busy.
Your social calendar might get packed in February, but together you can pick and choose what is most fun and least exhausting or expensive. Agree on what events are simply too much trouble and politely skip them. Neptune will be bringing you many options and invitations, so talk it out.
If family functions or demands get out of control in August or September, support one another in dealing with the details and logistics of get-togethers. A big family reunion might sound good at first, but remember how much work is involved.
Being sensible is always a good thing, especially in November when passions could rise to an all-time high. Be attentive to each other's health, too, and feel secure being there for one another.
End the year firmly in control of your relationship and happiness.
2016 is a great time to firm up you position, Gemini, and to get some real staying power in your work situation or career slot. You have energy and good standing now, so think twice about making any major changes or shifts. If you have recently changed careers or occupations, you can set down deep roots now.
The Mercury retrograde in late April and May can actually be very grounding for you and set you up for a financially stable, solid year. Use it to plan ahead.
There may be many things you'd like to have, places you'd like to go, and things you'd like do, but hold off on the big ticket items for now. Numerous smaller expenses could be easily handled and bring just as much satisfaction, especially in November and December, when Mars and Saturn have your back in the workplace.
