What January's Gemini Horoscope Predictions Mean for You

Read what your sign's 2021 horoscope predictions have in store for you or check out the Gemini personality profile. 

Welcome to January and a whole new year, Gemini! At the end of December, you accepted that sometimes you need to slow down and make room for self-care. Last year was rough for you in myriad ways; after all, you are the social butterfly of the zodiac, so being isolated during the pandemic has been hard for you. However, remember that it's important to keep yourself (and each other) safe, and even if it's hard right now, it'll be more than worth it in the long-run. 

The first big astrological date of the year for you is Friday, January 8. Your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, enters fellow air sign Aquarius, lighting up your 9th House of Philosophy. While Mercury will start its first retrograde of 2021 at the end of the month, your ruling planet is happy in logical Aquarius. As the 9th House also rules learning, this is a great time to pick up a new hobby, which can help you work out some of that anxious energy from being stuck inside. 

Romance planet Venus enters diligent Capricorn and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation.

But that's not the only thing the stars are up to on Friday, January 8. Romance planet Venus enters diligent Capricorn and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation. Don't worry, dear Gemini, this isn't an actual harbinger of death, but it does mean that your love life is in for a serious makeover. Any half-ass relationship or "situationships" past their expiration date will implode (unless you end them first). Geminis tend to have too many crushes and admirers, so don't feel bad about letting something lukewarm go. And while this transit may mean endings, it also means clearing the way for new love to come your way. 

Eccentric planet Uranus goes direct on Thursday, January 14. It's been retrograde since last August, bringing out the activist in all of us. Many of us have taken up the fight against systemic racism, while others have advocated for rent relief or a new administration. Others still emphasized the importance of keeping each other safe during the pandemic. When this revolutionary planet goes direct, life may start to feel just a tad easier, which is a good thing, but we must remember that there's still work to be done to make the world a better place. 

Use the bold energy of the full moon to express your needs to crushes and romantic partners. 

Progressive Aquarius season begins on Tuesday, January 19, and yes, that's the day before Inauguration Day. It's an understatement to say that 2020 was rough on all of us, but don't lose hope that change is possible; after all, it's the only constant. 

A full moon in Leo lights up your 3rd House of Communication and brightens the sky on Thursday, January 28. Use this bold energy to express your needs to crushes and romantic partners, because when Mercury retrograde begins on Saturday, January 30, communication gets a little wonkier. Because Mercury is your ruling planet, these retrogrades can affect you more than other signs. It becomes a bit more likely that you'll text the wrong person, or say something you don't mean to someone you care about, so double-check all your texts and think before you speak on and after this date. However, as noted, the planet is happy in Aquarius, and the sign's detached and logical vibe helps keep us calm when the WiFi cuts out right before an important Zoom meeting. Stay safe and see you in February.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty.
