Clockwatching is death to restless Gemini, so if your 9-5 isnt serving up excitement, you have two choices: 1) Be the plucky go-getter and create a new role for yourself within the company or 2) Use the downtime to start working on your own business plan.

You could score a dream job, land a glamorous client, snag a record deal, or become the celebrity apprentice to an industry bigwig. Its all about being proactive and bringing that Gemini confidence to the table. Your connections with men come into the spotlight too, and there will be lots of helpful guys at your disposal for the next month. Alas, there could be some friction with the fellas too, especially after Saturday when your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde until March 17. You dont need Sigmund Freud to remind you that the relationship you have with your father (for better or worse) becomes a template for your dealings with all men. If youre a daddys girl, as many Geminis are, you might even have unrealistic expectations for how the rest of the XY chromosome set will treat you. (Sorry, Princess Gemini is not a title of distinction after age 8.) If your father was absent or disinterested, you may spend too much time vying for male attention, inadvertently setting up a competitive dynamic with women in the process. This week is about bringing awareness to the way you connect with men, allowing them to play a broader range of roles in your life. Explore the work of Allison Armstrong at understandmen.com if the male species is a stumbling block in your life. A man from your past could reprise an old role in your life during Mercurys backspin. Dont be shocked if you hear from a guy who you thought was totally out of your life this weekend. Retrogrades are just thata retro blast from the past. Is there magic left between you? This could be worth exploring, but dont make a final call until Mercury powers forward on March 17. Since this particular retrograde is in Pisces and your career zone, reconnecting to a former colleague could pave the way to some future success. Scroll through those old contact databases and see if any names jump out. Beware! Tension with a colleague could roil during Mercury retrograde so steer clear of that office nemesis. The last thing you need is to get swept into a war of words during your workday. Even if youre justified, Gemini, this meltdown will make YOU look bad. If you have an issue with someone, take it to HR instead of taking it into your own hands. Theres another retrograde in the planetary mix this week, too. On Monday, structured Saturn takes a backspin in Scorpio and your sixth house of healthy habits and daily routines. Saturn retrograde lasts until July 7, a time when you must be uber-diligent about how you spend each moment of your day. For someone who likes to blow where the wind takes you, being scheduled and disciplined will be a huge challengebut you can do it, Gemini! Dont wait until things fall apart to take command. Whip your schedule into shape, hire a virtual assistant to help you stay on top of things, download apps to track your every move, get your reminder alarms dialed in. Your body is your temple, and youll need to treat it as such. Get to the doctors for a checkup and add some natural remedies to your diet like Vitamin D drops or an herbal tonic that can serve as preventative medicine. If you struggle to get to the gym, find a workout buddy or spring for weekly sessions with a trainer who can keep you accountable. While Saturns retrograde can bring some hurdles, it can also help you get into fighting shape. Reducing stress levels is a must, however, or you could be headed for a meltdown. Consider which commitments are really serving you and which are zapping your me time. Your work life will be busier and more demanding with Saturns backspinall the more reason to get nutrition and exercise in order so that your tank is topped and youre burning clean fuel!
