Self-improvement endeavors can be in focus and successful as you go forward.
Today and tomorrow can be excellent for sharing with someone you trust, dear Gemini. Or, you may take steps to improve your life by putting a weighty problem behind you. Good energy is with you for unwinding and detaching yourself emotionally from demanding situations. It’s a strong time for recuperation and regeneration.

Your intimate life becomes clearer with Saturn turning direct today. You gain a stronger sense of who you want, and what you want from your relationships. You may see some forward progress with taxes, debts, or financial support this week. There could be the need to buckle down that prompts you to be more attentive about–or responsible for–a matter.

If you’ve held yourself to special projects and ideas recently, then this is your opportunity to diversify and put your feelers out into the world. With Saturn turning direct today, however, truths coming to light this week help you get a real grip on the reality of friendships or projects, a long-term plan, aspiration, or goal. You can make better arrangements with a sense of what is viable and what isn’t. You’re able to put procrastinating ways behind you in some regions of your life, and it feels good to do so.
