What you think you want in terms of what can make your present circumstances materialistically more comfortable conflicts with fulfilling your emotional needs, which are hard to pin down. It’s possible there will be those who feel that something is missing and may try to fill the void with money and possessions. New romantic attachments during this transit are short-lived, as they’re ended when reality overwhelms fantasy of what is expected to be received.

Facing up to the trials and challenges of reality may cause anxiety if you don’t feel you have enough strength to cope with them. It’s possible you won’t know what to do and which direction to take; this is emphasized if you feel you are misled or deceived. It’s easy to be discouraged or unsure when you would normally have faith and confidence in your abilities, but the effect of this transit will soon pass. Personal recognition at this time is superficial. This isn’t so bad if the recognition that is received is negative, but don’t be fooled by false praise from those with ulterior motives.

This could be a test of character by putting words to action if there is a struggle to summon the strength to make this happen. A direct course of action probably won’t happen. Instead it will be necessary to take alternating directions to avoid obstacles that can’t be conquered no matter how hard you try. Personal anxieties won’t be substantial for most but can lower confidence and the ability to be assertive. If there is confrontation it could trigger self-doubts that come and go in waves. If it’s particularly bad remember the storm will pass and brighter days are ahead.

Retrograde Venus at 14 degrees 3 minutes Gemini is square Mars at 14 degrees 3 minutes Pisces at 12.41 am GMT 1.41 am BST 3rd June 2020.

An inconsistent flow of ideas about what is wanted from relationships, social contacts or whatever else is desired leads to a lack of assertiveness or an unclear course of action to get them. Not wanting to cause any upset due to how uncomfortable or awkward it may be won’t make anyone happy. It’s much better to take a step back to give yourself a chance to edit and re-edit what you want from relationships that won’t drain your strength. Hidden tensions within existing relationships could come to the surface. They’re unlikely to be serious, but there is a sense of not knowing what to do about them. Don’t try too hard to address them; save your energy for another time.

Mercury at 20 degrees 42 minutes Gemini is square Neptune at 20 degrees 42 minutes Pisces at 3.43 pm GMT 4.43 pm BST 22nd March 2020.

Clarity in communication and the rapid frequency of the information that is received could cause problems for those who are content to avoid reality. Uncertainty caused by those who attempt to deceive may stir up anxiety in those who are sensitive or vulnerable during this transit. There are some individuals who will freely express their opinions regardless of the stress and tension that is created if the outcome of doing so is unknown. Logic and mental agility will have to be used if there is a suspicion the information received is not what it seems. Creative ideas may not be forthcoming due to a lack of concentration or distraction; imagination could work against rather than for you.

The Sun at 1 degree 51 minutes Gemini is trine retrograde Saturn at 1 degree 51 minutes Aquarius at 12.03 pm GMT 1.03 pm BST 22nd May 2020.

If you want to get your affairs in order and build up stability, to alleviate any anxieties caused by unusual events that can be oppressive, this transit will ease the process. Reviewing what freedoms are available within the restrictions that have been placed upon you will give you the chance to see what you can do to adapt and play to your strengths. There is an urge to rejoin the path to attain personal accomplishments that have been put to one side due to the time and effort required. Although the weight of this falls only on your shoulders, what you gain is earned and belongs to you.

Mercury is conjunction retrograde Venus at 20 degrees 12 minutes Gemini at 8.42 am GMT 9.42 am BST 22nd May 2020.

Your heart and mind may be in unison in how you respond in relationships and you could find what you truly appreciate about them. Much loved activities that are mentally stimulating but have been sidelined can be picked up from where you left them. The enrichment they bring to your life is of immense value. The methods of communication with those in your social circle may have to be revised, but when they’re running smoothly conversations can be fun and will lighten your day.

Retrograde Venus at 20 degrees 40 minutes Gemini is square Neptune at 20 degrees 40 minutes Pisces at 12.03 am BST 21st May 2020.

Unrealistic expectations of those who you are attached to should be reassessed to see how they can be altered. Compromise won’t be straight forward and a lot of effort will have to be made to find a suitable level of give and take for all concerned. In financial matters now is one of those times when spending money on what has short lived novelty value could subsequently come back to bite you. Don’t be under the illusion that if you’re financially safe and sound that is will last if you’re not sensible with your money. Frittering money away now means that the comforts you have in the present may need to be sacrificed later.

Venus at 20 degrees 18 minutes Gemini is square Neptune at 20 degrees 18 minutes Pisces at 3.53 am GMT 4.53 am BST 4th May 2020.

Using your intelligent and logic to attract and obtain what you want can be hard work as what you desire may be elusive or unrealistic. Restlessness during this transit may be caused by letting yourself get carried away with your imagination. The appeal of being idealistic over being realistic can be pleasant; but not being able to think clearly may cause problems that are tricky to resolve.

Mercury at 11 degrees 47 minutes Aries is sextile Venus at 11 degrees 47 minutes Gemini at 5.37 am GMT 6.37 am BST 18th April 2020.

Seeking mental stimulation from your friends or family to alleviate monotony or boredom is a good idea. The likelihood of having deep and serious discussions is low; instead it’s best to keep it fun and light-hearted. Just being able to entertain those you are in a relationship with, family or those in your social circle will show how much you care. It will be appreciated that you took the initiative to contact them to lift their spirits. Who knows? Between you and them you could solve minor problems either of you have with clever solutions.
