Gemini 2013 Horoscope
Astrological Predictions for the Gemini Zodiac Sign 2013
The year 2013 will be very exciting for Gemini. Lots of things happen, just about all the time. Not that much of it leads to lasting changes in your life, but you don't mind as long as it amuses you. And it does.
That's because Jupiter is in Gemini in the 2013 New Year horoscope, and it remains there until July. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune, if not to say luck. It expands your experiences, stimulates you to take initiatives, and makes things you're involved in run smoothly.
For Gemini, who is sort of unorganized by nature, it can lead to some confusion when so much happens with little time in between. But that's how you want to live, anyway. You'll be happy to adapt, as well as can be done. And you're an expert on adapting with ease.
Enjoy it while it lasts, because Jupiter will take another twelve years to return to Gemini. If you want to get an idea of what it will mean to you in 2013, try to remember what it was like in 2001. That year, too, you had Jupiter in your sign.
Gemini thrives on amusement, and Jupiter makes sure you get it in abundance.
Aspects to Jupiter in GeminiIn the 2013 New Year horoscope, Jupiter in Gemini has three positive aspects, which promise to increase your enjoyment.
One is a trine to the Ascendant in Libra of the 2013 World horoscope, but that doesn't have too much to do with Gemini individually. It just gives you an impression of fitting fine with the social attitude of the time, which is one of valuing balance and fairness. You can sign on to that, alright. And play along, if that's the proper way of describing it. Well, it is to you.
The other 2013 trine is more relevant to your personal situation. It's to Mars in Aquarius. Normally, Gemini is not a big fan of the Mars power, but you find that in Aquarius it opens up to new perspectives and helps you get rid of some old concepts that fit today's reality poorly. It's intellectually stimulating, even when it leads to arguments that are more heated than you normally appreciate.
Gemini also has a sextile to Uranus in Aries, which kind of says the same thing as Mars, albeit in a reversed fashion: Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, where Mars is at the start of 2013, whereas Mars is the ruler of Aries, where Uranus is at the same time.
So, the two planets support one another, both pushing you in the same direction. Uranus is the planet of profound thought and contemplation. In Aries, it seeks new solutions to old problems, impatient with prejudice of the past. It inspires you to get a fresh perspective of the world you live in. You are quite happy to do that.
All three aspects to Jupiter in the 2013 New Year horoscope, then, deal with an intellectual process, where you take stands and impatiently explore new possibilities, new ways of looking at the same old same old. That kind of renewal is tremendously stimulating to any Gemini.
Of course, there are complications as well. In the 2013 New Year horoscope, Venus in Sagittarius has an opposition aspect to Gemini, which means that there are nice opportunities for substantial changes in your life appearing, but you are hesitant towards them.
You like news and surprises, but you're not that eager to leave what you have for a life situation you know little about. You're generally quite pleased with your situation as it is, so why should you volunteer to change it considerably?
Changes inside your mind are fine, and happen all the time. But breaking up from your present surroundings and traveling to another place, unknown to you - that's not really your thing as a Gemini. A short visit is fine, but then you want to go back home, where all your friends are and you know your surroundings well.
Astrological Events Outside GeminiThere's a lot of stuff happening in 2013 of which you seem to be pretty much unaware. Gemini has no aspect to Saturn and the Moon Node in Scorpio, showing the worldwide economic crisis, intensifying very much during 2013, leading to some severe but necessary action by the governments and the main actors of the financial world. That doesn't affect you much, which is nothing to complain about. You neither lose nor gain on the financial calamity.
Gemini also lacks aspects to Mercury, Pluto and the sun, all of them in Capricorn 2013. They show that big and significant changes will take place in the social structure just about everywhere. Old systems wither, new ones emerge, and society as a whole is in a process of reform. That doesn't bother you much, if you even observe it.
The way you live your life, this restructuring in society has little to do with you - so far. It will probably mean more to you when it starts to affect how people interact in their everyday life. Such things change in a much slower pace than what's demanded for tearing down buildings and raising new ones where they stood.
You as a Gemini don't care about what houses look like. It's how people behave inside them that you pay attention to.
The odd thing, though, is that so much happens in the world in 2013 that other people are quite occupied with, but Gemini seems almost ignorant of it. As a result, you may experience some occasional difficulty in connecting to others around you. It's not a big problem, since a Gemini always finds ways to connect to other people, no matter what. But it may confuse you at times.
Summing it up, 2013 is mainly a year of excitement and lots of good things happening for Gemini. You will be greatly amused and delighted, especially in the first half of the year. So, although there are many things you just ignore, you'll rarely have a dull moment.
