GeminiToday’s Solar Eclipse is the final one in a set of eclipses since mid-last year that have been very personal for you, dear Gemini. It brings a surge of energy for taking charge of your relationships and can be a final push to make decisions about partnerships. The path is clear for new beginnings in a relationship, although some reflection is in order before outward progress is realized with an upcoming retrograde of Venus. You’re likely to move in a new direction or towards a new, enlightened perspective. Today, you’re especially open with talking about or analyzing personal matters, although you can be a little detached about it all. You’re beginning to see your own needs from others more clearly.
