I'm a Gemini - Is Now A Good Time To Lose Weight? Kelly Surtees
Q: I'm a Gemini born 22 May 1963 at 9.35pm in Melbourne. I'm about to start a conscious effort to lose the 'emotional' weight I gained after turbulent relationship times during the Pluto transit in my 7th house. I finally feel ready to commit to losing this weight which I feel has been burdening me. My question is, Is this an auspicious time for me to be doing this? Any thoughts on this are appreciated. Kind regards, Katarina PS I love reading your 'down to earth' horoscopes & planetary info.

A: One of the magic things about astrology is it shows us both global and personal rhythms of time. When it comes to such major personal endeavors as losing weight or getting healthy what matters most is whats happening in your own chart, rather than the world around you.

First, a few basics about your chart. You are a Gemini with an Aquarius rising (also known as the ascendant). Both Gemini and Aquarius are Air signs, which means information and data is going to be your friend through the weight loss process. You need to engage your mind when dealing with your body. Measure and weigh yourself as you begin your health kick, so you know what the starting point is.

With both the Moon and Venus in Taurus in your birth chart, you do like good quality food and drink. Portion size might be something to focus on, as typically Moon in Taurus loves carbs and loves to eat! And with that Taurus Moon, comfort eating can be an instinctive way to soothe your spirit. Massage, beauty treatments and getting outdoors will work just as well. With Mercury close to your Moon, talking or journalling about your feelings is going to be an easy way to help manage food cravings. Include a beautiful journal and a nice pen as part of your weight loss strategy.

About six months ago, your progressed Moon entered Aquarius. I refer to this as an ideal weight loss phase. Youve got about 18 months left of this cycle, which is great for thinking rather than feeling. Youll generally become more rational about many things - love, life and wellness included. Training in groups or with friends will help keep your motivation up.

Youve also got some boundary loving Saturn transits on side from now through to December to help you with setting new routines and sticking to limits. So, even though there is a lot going on around you, its ok to focus on you and your getting healthy goals.
