Multitasking Gemini Planets

Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and the sun all in Gemini highlights the best and worst aspect of the twins. The ability to multitask falls in both categories. In a fast-paced world, multitasking can be a necessity. It can also be a productivity and civility killer -- or an actual killer if one of the tasks happens to be driving a car. Take it one thing at a time today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Is experience really the best teacher? For today, anyway, the manual will have her beat. Don't fumble around trying to figure it out in real time when someone else has already written down exactly how to do it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will devote yourself to investigations of the unknown, and not because you want to uncover the mysteries of life, but because you want to enjoy them. You appreciate the fascinating magic of unanswered questions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Usually a social butterfly, today you'll be more like the flower: a stationary attraction that has all the other butterflies flittering about and occasionally landing for a visit.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't expect yourself to know everything already. Even if you think you know, it won't hurt to do more research. Gather the bits. Before you can fit the pieces of a puzzle together, you have to have all of the pieces.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're more like a lone wolf than a lion today. There's something you must do on your own. You want the freedom of going where your instincts lead you without having to compromise along the way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are socially generous. You know when to step up, get the ball rolling, tell a good story, ask an astute question and, perhaps most importantly, when to get off the stage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is not difficult for you to form bonds. In fact, sometimes it's a little too easy. Many people want to be close to you, and yet there's not enough time in the day for so many associations. Choosing wisely will be key now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll bring life to a gathering. The most important moment happens at the end of the meeting, when commitments are made for the future. It's better to under-promise and over-deliver than the other way around.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You need space and privacy. When this need isn't met, you become frustrated and irritable. But if you have enough time in solitude, you'll be happy, easy-going and charming when it's time to socialize.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one likes a know-it-all until a situation arises in which that knowledge is valuable or even crucial to moving the action along. That's why it's important to share information on a need-to-know basis.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Solutions are at hand when helping hands are around you. Honest, practical people don't care about who gets the credit; they just want to get the job done.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Because you prize the beauty of imagination and wonder, you're careful not to interfere with what other people believe. Even asking questions can threaten a belief system. You'd rather mind your own business.


TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 22). You are clear about what you desire. You'll put out as much physical energy and enthusiasm as you can muster next month, and this boomerangs back to you in the form of all the support you need to launch your project. In July, much will depend on whose side you're on. November and January are windfall months. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 48, 44, 37 and 45.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "Our two-year marriage is already in trouble. We both have high-pressure careers that involve travel and plenty of opportunity for behaving like singles. He messed up, and I caught him. I don't even believe in divorce -- but maybe I'm being naive. I'm a Scorpio, and he's a Gemini. Is there any hope we'll still make it?"

Scorpios like to understand the mysterious forces of the universe, and love is among the most mysterious. As a society, our ideas about love are constantly changing. Fairytale love continues to be a popular movie theme, though divorce rates in the U.S. typically run in the 40 percent to 50 percent range. There are all kinds of partnership arrangements around the globe, including polygamous societies that might include one wife for multiple husbands or several wives for one husband or as many variations on that theme as you might imagine. So even though society likes to claim there is a right way and a wrong way to love, much depends on the society you happen to be in. Therefore, why not do it your way? Your Gemini is a reasonable, communicative man. So make the rules together, and design a relationship that works for you -- or don't. This is not predestined. It's up to you to do the work.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Ginnifer Goodwin expresses her Gemini duality in the role of Mary Margaret Blanchard, a.k.a. Snow White, in the hit television series "Once Upon a Time." The twins love the mischief and intellectual challenge of multiple roles in one. Her natal Mars and Saturn in Leo gives Goodwin an edge in show business, as these aspects indicate a natural-born entertainer.
