Horoscope for the Week of July 13th:
The biggest extreme is between Jupiter and the Sun, which will be the dominant focus this week – But, we have an unusual situation this week: we also have the Sun in opposition to Saturn and Pluto. That means we will be swinging between some pretty wide extremes – between ourselves, and the natural optimism that you have, along with the deeper and darker sides of Saturn and Pluto. It will be an intense week to navigate, but the areas where the planets are in YOUR chart will show you how you will deal with it:
You have been thinking a lot about your education – you may feel that what you have done isn’t quite enough. And, you’re also just not happy with yourself because you really haven’t gotten a sense of your own intellectual abilities, and the education part, to you, is important in your overall self-worth. You really do want to come in first! Because of this, you’re thinking about going back to school. You really do love the academic life, and it looks like you’ll get some opportunities to take classes. Make sure you do!

The key is to understand that Gemini must seek information; it is the first sign to be operating on the mental function, and once it has been learned, the Gemini will have learned about itself that much more.

Gemini always keeps his or her perspective open, as to allow new opinions to be introduced and become a part of the Gemini’s repertoire.Gemini’s are the type to be reading more than one book at a time;
Gemini’s are the type to be reading more than one book at a time; because their attention span is so very short, and can include many different subjects under the same roof.
Mercury is the ruling planet. The mythology of Mercury is truly close to Gemini’s purpose. Mercury, the winged messenger, always flew around the galaxies delivering messages to ports far and wide. So is Gemini – always seeking and sharing its information that it finds.
Associated body part. The hands and the lungs. The lungs are where we get our air to talk and the hands add the dynamic of making a point.
Associated body part: The ruler is Mercury, which rules the lungs and the hands. How perfect; the lungs fill with air in order to deliver an idea or thought; and the hands are the extension of the voice, gesticulating to make a point.
The issues of challenge: to not get too steeped in one opinion, and stay open to new ideas. Adding to too many opinions, to confuse.
The issues of joy: The expansion of one’s viewpoint to be allinclusive in its own opinions. To realize that other people can be right, and get joy from the information they receive that wasn’t their own.
