GEMINI (May 20–June 21)
Your ruling planet Mercury turns to retrograde motion just after the equinox, on March 22, lasting through April 15. This occurs in Aries, the most social and extraverted region of your chart. Yet you'll want to keep some distance between what you say outwardly and what happens within the most intimate spaces of your life. This is not so much about being secretive as it is about giving your relationships space to be themselves, minimizing interference and judgment from your wider environment. It seems as if you're renegotiating an arrangement within a long-term partnership. It could be strictly business, though this is unlikely—it's more likely to be an erotic partnership that's undergoing some change and is not revealing its inner workings easily. It will help if you don't think of it as a relationship but rather as a discussion between two people's individual lives. The best approach is to make a commitment to holding space for whatever the other is going through, and whatever needs they may have. This calls for some detachment; but mostly, it's respect that will get the results. Stand back from the idea that anyone belongs to anyone else, or owes anyone anything, and take up the lives involved as individual experiences. This is a test of faith and of commitment. Hold this space for a while, listen patiently, and what to do next will flow naturally.
