2010 Horoscope Forecast
Gemini the Twins in 2010
mystic alchemies unfold...
While the mystic alchemies of 2010 are set to unfold before your very eyes, the axis on which things turn is 'money', both the individual holdings you have and the shared or joint monies you can access. With Pluto, lord of the underworld, driving ahead in Capricorn, your solar eighth house, the imperative is to regenerate the foundation of your finances by renewing or refreshing strategies, advisors and associates on the sea of fiscal navigation. Sometimes you have to empty the vessel to refloat it. Sometimes you have to hit dry land for needful repairs.
With a series of eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn and a restless surge towards a new horizon through Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, the wild fire will burn away the ashes of the past, raking them in to fertilise the soil of new schemes or fresh ventures in financial life. Partnership will be a strength if you find the right measures in someone, that of flexible understanding but uncompromising determination. Those that forge the right partnership connection and those that strategically renew the one they have will find a new strength and firm foundations for the life ahead. It's not for the faint-hearted though, and you'll need more than your natural cleverness and agility to play this hand.
Saturn, measurer of effort in Libra will serve you via changes in lifestyle, romance or creative projects, as long as you make an unswerving effort, examining the consequences of what you do before you do it. Take a good long look at all of that, as the year begins with both Mars in Leo and Mercury in Capricorn, locked into their cycles of reverse motion. February and March will start to show signs of how you can move ahead by revealing the base structures you have left in place. That marks January and the midyear for the cleansing fire—or for getting rid of the rubbish and cancelling the wasted efforts.
With Saturn in the sign of harmony and balance, make a play in romance, grab a slice of the action in creative work or investments or set your sights on the lifestyle you want. You'll have to work at it and take a risk. For some, there will be new love or love renewed while, for others, there'll be a child to care for, one that perhaps brings extra responsibility or special needs. A new life will feature. Some of you will set out on a course where artistic interests of accomplishments are in the frame. You may, somehow or other, take an interest in beauty, beautiful things or objects of artistic merit. It may also be that food, hospitality, clothing, or other perhaps refined consumables, will feature in your special interests or lifestyle. You may take on an interest, activity or project that brings you into direct contact with the public and its tastes.
Whatever the demands, if you want something, make the commitment. It's a 'C' word year! You'll find yourself with a new level of responsibility, or you'll have to accept restriction for a time to gain a greater goal. While there's a final return of Saturn into Virgo from April to July, 2010 is nonetheless a year to set your course, navigate the seas and find new land. While responsibility falls to you, the hand of true companionship will be a guiding light and the support you most need. Whether this is love or a close association, enjoy the gift and the comfort of balance in partnership and be prepared to work at it.
Relationships: the Journey to the Heart
Venus the goddess is magnetised in Capricorn as the year begins, fresh from a union with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. It's time for a new start in love or money, but only when you are sure you've cleared the old ground, bringing past patterns or associations to a stone cold end. Leave it behind you, Gemini! Close the door and you'll soon see the way you can move forward to find happiness and security.
You'll deal with powerful people or those strongly placed in business. Intense or manipulative people will touch your financial or emotional life. Don't underestimate the enemy; watch for those who play a hidden hand, and don't get involved in secret deals that can't be broadcast in time. There will be backstage whispers and concealed entrances or exits but, if you play your part in a well-rehearsed and canny fashion, you can triumph. If you're in a relationship, concentrate on renewing what you have, or somehow starting again. You'll need to be clear that you're laying a ghost or calling time. For the singles, there may be a potent or engaging new relationship. Don't underestimate what you've found, for the perfect match will be someone strong and not easily led. If there is a new partner, you may find that someone with a story or a past will have the necessary life experience and wisdom to make things work.
Home and Family
The home is an important arena as a base for new projects, interests or romance, but the practical aspects of domestic or family life come back into focus on April 7, as Saturn returns to the sign of Virgo. If it's not yet done, do it! If it's not yet fixed, fix it! Whether it's a faulty fitting or an aggrieved family member, now's the time to deal with outstanding problems or past issues. As late May comes, once again the pressures or demands in the balance of personal and professional will shake the foundations of your home life, testing to see where the weakness lies. While new ideas will be important, the quick fix will not be a remedy. Put something strong and practical in place at home and be inventive with your public or professional roles. Ingenuity will solve this if you do the little things right. The unexpected development will play a part, as will the surprise solution.
May 30 sees Saturn roll forwards again, still in Virgo, and you'll start to see a result for your efforts or the beginnings of a new regime in domestic life. 'How authority is taken' will be a question to address. From there, you'll be on the slippery dip of romance, lifestyle, activities or new creative ventures as Saturn returns to Libra on July 20. Spending is the thing you'll have to get right and you can call on support or ideas from your friends or associates to do that. August into September will bring an epilogue of the odd hitch or glitch at home, as Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo.
Work and Health
Work at keeping stress levels and worries low, then up the ante with vigorous pursuits for both mind and body. That's it in a nutshell this year. Challenge yourself, test yourself against forces that seem to be stronger or situations that resist you; you'll find that you are able to break them open, if you're properly determined to do so. From the start through to March 10, be extra careful on the roads or in traffic. Watch personal safety at home for the month from mid August and, overall, be mindful of the fact that you may tend to overdo it or take on too much. If you wrestle an irresistible force, or try yourself against an immovable object, you may find in the end that you're fighting something in yourself. Be wise.
Venus the goddess turns retrograde in Scorpio on October 8, bringing a change or reversal with work, health or daily life. Expect absences, alterations, or ups and downs involving co-workers or staff. Health or alterations in duty will snaffle a familiar figure, or you'll be at odds with someone at work. Avoid liaisons, don't borrow money and avoid secret deals or plots. Negotiations on pay or conditions will be testy, take time, or involve past issues. There'll be a difficult, feisty or grasping person to deal with, probably a female.
Avoid the company of those thwarted or frustrated in love and be careful of developing rivalries. Stay away, for you won't anticipate the level of reaction. You'll take a break from dealing with the public or find yourself back with past duties in that regard.
A practitioner or consultant will be absent when you need them, or you will search for advice or expertise without finding it. You may need a costly treatment. Past conditions or connections will resurface and you'll experience dearth or delay with love, social relations or money because of conditions with work or health. Circumstance will prevent a personal contact, or you'll deal with those who want no contact. Venus slips back to Libra on November 8, bringing delays, breaks or withdrawals with love or money in lifestyle, recreation, romance. Involvements will suffer, but the goddess will move forward on November 18, setting matters to rights in time.
Career and Finances
Jupiter sets the pace with career in 2010. On January 18, the Lord of Fortune enters Pisces and your solar tenth house, focusing on professional relationships, dealings with authority or people of status. This transit awakens the raft of organising skills required to fulfil your responsibilities, whether personal or professional. You'll seek promotion (or find it), or you'll deal with people of status in such a way as to advance your situation. Luck or opportunity will play a hand in professional development—and so will teaching, teachers, overseas links or achievement in study. This is a year to seize the day or open doors, even if what you gain doesn't quite fit at first with the profile you'd planned. There's always a step to take or a link in the chain by which you gain or enjoy advantage.
There will be occasions to celebrate in professional or personal life this year. You should reach a landmark that others will acknowledge. Be tempered and assiduous in your application to necessary tasks: don't try to get things by the back door or the easy way and avoid secret deals or any plotting. The month of May will find you out, if you've stuck on a band-aid when a bandage was required. Stick to the protocols, do what's expected and wait for the fireworks to arrive.
On June 6, Jupiter hits Aries, joining revolutionary Uranus as he does so. An explosion of incandescence through friends, groups or community-based activity will see interests or inclinations surge ahead, through new ideas or a radical refocus. Cultivate a hitherto unheralded sense of direction, as you charge across the hot coals of a fire-walk to an uncharted vista. Flames of interest or desire will spark up, but it may not be until 2011 that you really engage and flourish through new interests or connections. Jupiter hits reverse on July 23, then slides back into Pisces on September 9, returning your focus to that of career, authority and the raft of responsibilities. The Lord of Fortune moves forward on November 18, igniting the lighthouse flame that guides you through the rocks to the coast of radical or nouveau activities or interests in the next year. For some, this will result in a complete change of personal or professional direction.
Give a moment's thought to the period from April 20 to July 20, as Chiron the Wounded Healer slips into Pisces for an experimental swim through the sea of the Fishes. Unusual people or duties will fall to you through your professional or personal responsibilities. You may take a radical course, consult with a radical practitioner or healer, or you may incline to a new or unusual direction with career endeavours.
Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.
The year begins with Mercury in reverse in Capricorn, tested by a hard aspect from Mars, also running backwards in Leo. There'll be a stuttering start to communications and, somehow or other, money will be at the core, especially joint finances or credit obligations. It'll be easy to blow your stack or jump the wrong way under pressure so just take things as calmly as you can. Double check arrangements or situations and see where you stand. You may lose contact with an important fiscal link or you may not get the info you need. It may just be that things don't work according to the plan or schedule and you'll have to go back over what's gone wrong and put it right. There may be tricky or testing relations with people that have power or control over your money. Mercury turns direct on January 15 and then emerges from the retrograde shadow on February 4.
The busy messenger's second reverse motion cycle begins on April 18, in the sign of Taurus and your solar twelfth house. Watch for confusion, distraction or just a tendency to lose the plot or phase out. You will be absorbed by inner events or concerns, bringing confusion or misunderstandings over arrangements or communications. It'll be easy to get the wrong end of the stick, especially if you're worried or preoccupied. You can enjoy a bit of creative exploration or experimentation at this point. You may mull over what you need to spice up your spiritual life. Just make sure you manage to integrate these revelations or realizations with the simple process of tying your shoes, navigating traffic and not tripping over the furniture. You may emerge from this period with insight or a new resolve. Keep an eye on minor health concerns, especially if neglect, fatigue or inattention is involved. Mercury moves forward on May 11, emerging from the retrograde shadow on May 29.
The third reverse motion cycle for Mercury begins on August 20 and comes in the sign of Virgo and your solar fourth house. There will be delays, confusion, problems with power or appliances or difficulty with communication in or around the home base or family. Method and precision will assist at some level of prevention but it will be important to prepare by servicing machines or vehicles on which home life is dependent. A health or work matter will disrupt domestic life or routines. It'll be hard to make schedules meet or get the normal run of things taken care of. There may be disputes or a bit of angst with family members. Differences over the way people do things or approach things may be at the core of it. Work patiently through the detail of whatever doesn't or hasn't worked and things will soon be back on track. Don't fly off the handle or spit the dummy and, as the messenger moves forward on September 12, the mood and management in the domicile will begin to improve. September 27 will excise you from the retrograde shadow.
Mercury's last round for 2010 all but counts out the year, as the busy messenger hits reverse in Capricorn on December 10, churning up the facts and figures of a fiscal nature where credit or joint monies are concerned. Things will not go according to schedule. You may find yourself at odds over finance, on the receiving end of an error or you may be caught out committing one, by design or default. You may be at odds with someone in authority over money or you may have to answer to a financial heavyweight. A plan or scheme you're involved in will not be going according to Hoyle and you'll have to revise or review your efforts or strategies as a consequence. A joint relationship may not be what you hoped with regard to fruitfulness or cooperation. Stand back and look at what needs to be done. The mood will turn to partnership matters as Mercury returns to Sagittarius on December 18. Discuss, review differences with others and work to sort out what's gone wrong (if anything) and why! A little vision with a dose of humour will help to get things back on track or contribute to the right decision as Mercury moves forward on December 30.
Lunar Life with Lady Moon
Your New Moon comes on July 12, bringing tension with Saturn, as Mercury in your sign clashes with Mars in Virgo. Delay, restriction or the actions or situation of someone older or infirm will affect your domestic or family circumstances. You'll have to take sharp action to get a matter in hand but you'll have to be careful about impatience or feisty verbals. You will need to set a new plan in motion, one that somehow goes against or countermands an older one. Be light on your feet but serious about what needs to be done. Is there and issue with renovation or repair in the domicile or the family group? If you're undertaking a project or a responsibility, think 'long term' and be aware of the consequences. Take care with safety or health at home in the ensuing weeks. Focus on what needs doing.
Your Full Moon is on December 21, bringing a total Lunar Eclipse. There'll be a pattern, an image or a style of presentation that ends or hits a wave of disruption. A relationship or involvement will be marked for change. A separation will ensue, either final or a temporary break. It's a cyclical end in personal communications and you'll have to reflect on whether style, content or the real juice of contact was among the reasons for this demise. You'll stop an involvement because you've had enough or because a journey has run its course. A close companion will be off, away or out of sorts. If it's a natural or anticipated break, let it be. If not, you or someone else may want an explanation. Review involvements and see where you stand in the wake of this, especially with Mercury reversed in Sagittarius and your house of partnership at this point. What's the tenure and what's the state of it where your obligations to or with others are concerned?
Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.
A New Moon and a Solar Eclipse comes in Capricorn and your solar eighth house on January 15. With Venus also involved in this blocking of the light, there could be a temporary or even permanent hitch or glitch with financial involvements or joint obligations. Be sure that all is working well with timing and payment schedules. There may be an interruption or an end with a fiscal connection or situation. You will be at the end of a run or the bottom may fall out of a scheme or venture. You may struggle to cover a payment and find that you have to pull funds from somewhere else. On the erotic side, there may be a break or a change with the steamier relations in your life. Line up personal spending and credit or mortgage demands and see where the gap will fall or the shot miss the target.
June 26 brings a Lunar Eclipse with the Full Moon in Capricorn, again testing, disrupting or putting the mockers on your financial schedules or joint obligations. A fiscal contact, a scheme or a payment may go missing in action. This could mean a delay or it could mean a cycle is ending. You will need to review the situation or revise your figures. You'll finish with a 'money' contact, either pulling the plug or having the rug pulled from beneath you. Ride out the wobbles and see where you stand when the dust settles. There will be more ructions or rock and roll to follow in July so, if you haven't been wise in advance, be so 'in the course of' and with hindsight. This may simply be the end of a phase or an association and you will wish to bring any obligations you have to a close.
There is a total Solar Eclipse that comes with the New Moon in Cancer on July 11. This will mark the close of a cycle with personal spending, income or 'day to day' management of money or resources. A change in family or domestic circumstances may contribute to the process or even bring about the change. There may be a subtraction from the current family configuration or there may be a change with work or income that affects the cycle of domestic or personal finances. A departure of some kind is on the cards, a leave-taking that will alter the situation on a temporary or a permanent basis. Delay may be a factor in these circumstances or it may be that 'cessation' is the applicable term. It would be wise to look to this time from a position of foresight, putting extra aside or being conscious of the worth of things you want in terms of the real and practical cost it takes to obtain them.
