Your ruling planet, the communicative Mercury, starts out the year direct and then immediately goes retrograde (back into Sagittarius) in the first week of January. Ready to do some backtracking? You may want to immediately revoke some words or actions you let slip in a heated moment, but right now take-backs and do-overs aren't likely. Let bygones be bygones.
The Sun moves into your airy sign in late May, throwing you into a social whirlwind. You're a master of small talk, and you can strike up a conversation with anyone no matter how diverse your backgrounds. The focus is off the physical world and on the mental one, where you're super comfortable. You gladly accept any and all mental challenges, and feel very much yourself for the coming month.
Mid-November brings an unfortunate Mercury-Neptune square that puts your judgment in question, leaving you to wonder if you can really trust yourself to make decent, well-informed decisions. Right now? Probably not. This aspect throws you into a vicious cycle where you may not only get caught up in your own thoughts and ideas, but unfortunate byproducts include lying and manipulation. If someone insists that you aren't seeing the whole picture, believe them. Or at least don't dismiss them right away.
Mercury drifts into kindred Air sign Aquarius at the start of February, which may make you literally breathe a sigh of relief. Take a deep breath and move forward with a romantic plan; now that you're feeling lighter, you have much less to lose when it comes to love. You're an excellent storyteller right now, and your thought patterns are a bit more eccentric and amusing than they usually are. This all works to your advantage romantically, because whether you're trying to woo someone new or impress your partner of many years, they're likely to find you completely unique and charming, if not a tad bit off (in the cutest way).
Venus glides into your sign in the beginning of July, which puts your communication skills at the forefront of all of your romantic interactions. You know the exact right thing to say to make your sweetie swoon, and if you're trying to make a good impression via text, your prose comes together like you're a virtual Shakespeare! This match between you and the Goddess of Love is a good, good thing, Gemini, and you'd have to try really hard to mess anything up! The one thing to remember is that Twins, as a rule, don't like to be tied down, so what happens once you win the guy or girl? Are you really going to want to do what it takes to maintain an actual relationship? That's some definite food for thought.
A Neptune-Mercury opposition has you missing out on important romantic details in the middle of September, and you may get hit with a lot of love-related blindsides and other 'Wow, I didn't see THAT coming' moments. If the universe could put an Out of Order sign on your brain during this time, it would. And because you're prone to mental confusion right now, too, it isn't a good idea to make any final decisions when it comes to love. Don't jump to conclusions (because what you see is only a portion of what's actually going on), and don't make snap judgments (because you're likely only seeing a portion of what's in the frame rather than the whole picture).
You're at your mental peak when Mercury meets Uranus (both in steady and determined Taurus) at the end of March, and your curiosity helps you advance in almost any career area of your choosing. If you don't know the answer, you'll find it, which makes you a helpful co-worker, impressive asset to your boss, advantageous member of any professional group, etc. You're also always looking to improve your already-impressive index of knowledge, so the time is right for taking classes and/or enrolling in a higher degree program.
Early June sees Mercury shifting into your sign, which casts a favorable light on all of your business dealings, social connections, communication issues, etc., for about three weeks. Use your time wisely in order to take full advantage of your communicative gifts. Talk up an executive in order to get information that no one else in the company knows. Go to a job-related seminar and ask an unlimited number of questions during the Q&A portion. Listen to a podcast about a job-related topic, then join an online discussion to talk about what you just learned. The possibilities are endless. One thing to keep in mind: this isn't a great time to start solo projects. You need that group energy to keep you on target!
A Mercury-Neptune trine occurs in late October, and if creativity is part of your everyday career life, good things are about to happen. You can go to some pretty impressive creative depths during this aspect, and as long as you can keep your inventive vision on track, the sky's the limit. If you're an artist, shop around your portfolio, and even if you aren't, this is a good time to beef up your resume with creative (yet not untrue) wording. Once you veer off track, however, it could be hard getting back on. Your imagination takes you many lofty places, but you have a tendency to drift off and get lost in your own interesting ideas (which can be especially unfortunate if you're giving a talk or presentation in front of a large group).
