Since 20 February the sun has been sitting on the opposite side of the earth to Saturn.

This creates a strange dynamic. The sun is overt, vibrant, and intense whereas Saturn is introverted, structured and responsible.

How could these energies possibly mix in a harmonious vibration? You may feel one side of you wants to party and be a social butterfly and the other side wants to take it easy and put things in order and take control.

It’s all about balance. Be responsible, take care of business, and then go out and party.

With the sun in Pisces, whose ruler is Neptune or, in goddess culture, Tiamat, there will be a lure towards the illusionary world of drugs and alcohol. As long as you know that this is just for fun and you’re not using them to avoid yourself, then the drugs will serve to enhance this experience.

But if you are using drugs to avoid yourself then Saturn may give you a slap back to reality. It’s all about synergy, darlings. You can have your cake and eat it too this Mardi Gras.

You have a responsibility to your home life and you are trying to balance that with career. Prioritising what is important is a good place to start. Some Geminis may choose career over home.

Life experience counts for a lot in our development. Sometimes it can condition us to think that we know it all. If we can stand back and look at something objectively we find that the process of dealing with a situation gets easier. Certainly consider what your life has taught you so far, but don’t let it have the last say.
