GEMINI (May 20–June 21)
Sandwiched between two Mercury/Saturn squares—retrograde November 1 and direct November 6—is Mercury's direct station in Libra on November 3 in a hard square to Capricorn in the ultra-sensitive area of the zodiac, which has been bombarded by hard-core conjunctions of Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter since January. Internal tensions must be resolved through unflinching and utterly ruthless honesty with yourself. Mercury re-enters Scorpio on November 10, empowering the deepest dive into intense self-examination. Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Gemini November 30 with Mercury's sextile to Saturn launches the next phase of intellectual inspiration, flowering maturity, and personal emotional growth.
