Perceptions seem to be dominated by wishful thinking today, dear Gemini, with Mercury, your ruler, in a square aspect to Neptune.

While you can certainly indulge in some fantasy, and this can even be therapeutic, try not to make important, life-changing decisions based on your current perceptions.

Keep in mind that others may not be revealing the whole story. Confusing situations can reign when it comes to reputation or career matters, as well as partnerships and negotiations.

It’s not ideal energy for presenting ideas or being completely understood. Being compassionate with others is fine, but guard against being taken advantage of. Consider that others may be similarly confused or distracted just for the time being.

A minor misunderstanding could turn your day upside down. Smooth sailing might require a superhuman effort on your part to overcome a short-lived case of brain fog as rational Mercury forms a conflictive square with hazy Neptune.

Although clear communication may be temporarily elusive, paying careful attention to the specifics of what’s said now can prevent a headache later on.

Thankfully, a little forethought allows you to entertain dreams of dancing sugarplum fairies, even if you’re responsible for more earthly matters in the moment.

While you have Mars in your career and Venus in your work sector over Christmas, this is less about keeping your professional and work hats on and more about letting your heart and passions paint a sense of what’s possible.

For the last time in our lifetime, you will move into the New Year with Mars and Neptune together in your career sector.

While Mars will leave on New Year’s Day, they are working together now to fuel your professional dreams and passions, at a time when Venus is giving you the confidence to follow your heart on the job front.

Today’s Quote: “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. ”
