You’re lusting for broader horizons. Snap, snap, and you’re there! A trip, even an international trip, is calling your name. If you can’t physically travel, you’ll be exploring through your mind, learning new things. It’s definitely get out of Dodge / the rut time. With Mars so recently direct in your sign (Thursday, January 12, to be exact), you’re raring to go. But without the frustration you felt when Mars was retrograde in your sign! February will be a refreshing month, and you will feel lighter for it.
Everything this February 2023 will be a discovery and you’ll find yourself in new and different states of awareness. So not so crazy, perhaps, to feel your loved one’s state for yourself. For you seem to be worried about a loved one…
But in your ninth mind-expansion house you have:
The energy and intention of the awesome Sun
The current Aquarius Moon
The brilliant communication and thought of Mercury (your ruler)
The beauty and charm of Venus
Stick-to-it Saturn of enduring legacy
And what does your ninth house rule?
Exploration, discovery, adventure
Learning new things
The far away and foreign – places, contacts, languages
School and university
Publishing, law, religion
Different faiths and legal systems
The ninth house is traditionally ruled by Sagittarius. Its nature is expansive and huge. This is not a retiring house. Because it is winter, your body may ask you for food and plenty of sleep – but your mind is a different matter.
More of you will be involved in some type of educational activity than ever before. And in trying new things. If you’ve been wondering about that yoga/samba/voice/photography/speechmaking, why not enroll? Now is an excellent time for this.
Work and money: needs careful budgeting, and a clear, unsparing eye. Another reason it might be better to fly without physically flying.
The universe supports your expansion, and it is awesome! It is exciting, Gemini, if not a little bit scary. New opportunities come to you out of the blue and threaten to alter your life if you can jump on them.
All sorts of magical adventures await you. Brilliant plans for the future will come to you. And it’s all going to be so much FUN! You are meant to go to lots of different parties and be seen around town. Your smarts and charm and humor – as always – do wonders.
At the same time, so does your kindness to a friend or loved one. I see you helping someone out in a big way, and it really comes back to you, karma-wise. Don’t be afraid to go out of your way. Your loved one is super-grateful, you do something good, and you are rewarded – what could be better than that?
In fact, this February can almost be described as a time of ideals. What you want and wish for, doing good, and making the world a better place. It is all about rising up above where you have been, and going farther than you have. Dare to dream, and dream big. Lotto lucky Jupiter just entered your eleventh house and is set to bless you in this area until May 16.
Carpe diem! Because this kind of luck, in this particular area, does not come around again for another twelve years.
I have talked about your professional and social lives receiving an upgrade, so now what about love?
Speaking of desire, every Gemini, secretly, or not so secretly, wants to be the femme fatale, and you’ll have this wish granted for almost three months – until April.
Remember: chameleons are the most colorful of ALL lizards.
You are working harder than ever in your relationships – about those you really, really care about, and often those with whom you are financially involved – and this is GREAT, Gemini.
If with certain troubled souls that you love, it feels like the world is throwing knives at you, and you are throwing knives at yourself, please remember THIS IS A TEMPORARY FEELING. It will soon be gone.
Do not despair.
Because “despair” has “pair” in it, and you are the symbol of the pair, twins, it is important that you do not cut off from yourself at this time. Keep whole. Keep your different selves together.
A part of you, as usual, wants to flee. You’ve just had it.
Hang in there, dear Gemini. I will be sending calming thoughts your way. Think back to last July when some of you were traveling. Dying to escape the hum-drum.
Now is the perfect time to break free from the idea that responsibility limits you rather than expands you. Have you been robbing Peter to pay Paul? Owing someone to pay another?
If you’re taking care of things, you are less a slave, and able to make choices.
This is all coming to a spectacular head — just so you can be free, once and for all! It really goes back quite a few years…
(Yes, in terms of choices, for one, this horoscope is cheaper than therapy.)
You need to get ready to sort out your complex about your money / other people’s money / how you share / how you don’t / what you expect from others — and what you feel is owed to you.
Especially if you want your relationships to really work. And especially if you want to feel really good about yourself. Which you deserve to and you should!
You do this by remembering the lessons you’ve learned in your second house of finances (never be without a job again!) and taking responsibility for all the ways YOU made it hard to have money for yourself.
Which you haven’t had so much of recently. This is why this month will be a turning point in your life, Gemini.
(Bear with me, dear Gemini. I know this feels like a pull-push time, and it IS. Very Yin-Yang. Limit to expand. Stay in to go out. But if there’s anyone smart enough — and dual enough — to figure it out, it’s YOU!!)
After February 2, it’s very possible old lovers and passions will pop up in your life. Ceres goes retrograde in your fifth house of true love and romance Thursday, February 2, bringing back the past. Ceres is all about nurturing – the nurturing you got when you were young, and the nurturing you give yourself now as an adult. Some of you didn’t receive very good training in your parent communications. This month we look at how to make it better.
Even when you do well later in your life, or have done well, it is hard for you to LET yourself do well. Or to believe it. If you lacked nurturing in a certain area, it’s harder to do it yourself later, when grownup.
It’s only challenging to learn new nurturing habits and behaviors – but it’s not impossible. It’s like anything else – you just need to do it DIFFERENTLY.
This February, the nurturing and healing is all about your fifth house of passion. It’s hard to give to others in an area that you yourself have been deprived of, as above. You will receive deeply RELIEVING information that will humble you. And in doing so, you can let go of the past (and past failure) and move on.
After this: No more the bitter waste of time you’ve been feeling in these areas. You move on, happily, successfully – and much, much stronger.
Know that you can do it. Remember: There’ll be nobody like you ever again.
Happy 2023, Awesome Gemini! I can’t wait to read you!

February is the dreariest month – except for Valentine’s Day, bang in the middle to bring us joy. And not only for sweethearts! For those of us who are alone, and more of us are, and by choice, than at any other time in human history, Valentine’s Day is about expressing your love. For your friends, for your fur babies, for your family, for – whomever, or whatever brings you love: express all of it! I believe we all have love in our hearts, and this is why I read you.
My job as astrologer / healer / palmist / psychic is to encourage and activate self-love, too. Very important: love YOURSELF on Valentine’s Day! Buy yourself flowers, take yourself to that movie / exhibit you’ve been dying to see, indulge in a luxurious bubble bath, treat yourself to a luscious dinner. Eat the ice cream. Why not? Love is love. It is good. It is the best.
The New York Times dubbed me “Love Guru” in a half page article they did on me in 1999. It was published on Valentine’s Day. Here it is if you’d like to read it. https://madalynaslan.com/press/articles/the-new-york-times-article/
I still do this for clients, of course – everyone wants to know who their special person really is – but, as many of you already know, I cover everything else as well! (Viola, my lovely Virgo assistant, is waiting for your email…email@example.com.)
