Who you, a softie? Yup, Gemini. You're awash in sentimental feelings this week, as your trademark cool logic is trumped by the wisdom of your heart. What sounds good on paper isn't always the best answer for you. A tender connection between the Sun and Mars helps you consider both facts AND feelings. Rather than rush to diagnose, conclude, or offer solutions, tune in to people's emotional states (including your own). People don't need a prescription from you-they need to be heard, validated, and understood. Wow! That's about a thousand times easier than having to play the role of the problem solver. Compassion, according to the Dalai Lama, is the antidote to violence-and it's pretty much the key to your best week ever (or, at least, the best week you've had for awhile). These three words are pure magic: "I totally understand." Don't just give lip service; genuinely take a walk in their Louboutins and get a taste of what it's like to live in their worlds. Your closest connections grow even stronger as a result of your open, non-judgmental approach. A powerful woman may serve as a mentor figure you this week, helping you reach a new level of understanding about your own soul and psyche. She may also open a door to opportunity that you didn't even realize was available to you. When in doubt, reach out. This may even be a female relative, or someone you consider "older and wiser" from your family tree. Over the weekend, reconsider your boundaries when it comes to shared assets. Are you being a bit too rugged of an individual, Gemini? Trying to keep everything separate and independent might be limiting your growth-both in the material world and the emotional realm. On the flip side, if you've been overly generous with your resources, rein that in before you tread into "sucker" terrain. Sharing is caring, but only when everyone is contributing with the same spirit. No, people don't have to match you dollar for dollar, but their level of effort should be on par with yours. Otherwise, the fair solution is to give less, allowing the score to even out and your brewing resentment to fade away. On a personal note, a heavenly trine between the Sun and Pluto paves the way for deep intimacy from Friday through Sunday. You may finally get to know that fascinating person better. Bonding over music, dancing, or the arts is the key that unlocks the door to your connection.
