Venus clashes with Uranus in Taurus on February 7, bringing unexpected thrills! This is an exciting time to experiment—just try to trust your intuition; if you don’t have enough information about something, think twice before committing.

Mercury retrograde is famous for delays, and at this time, people may be eager to push things forward, so it’s important to remember that speed doesn’t equal competency.

Things crack open! Liberation and a change in protocol take place, and the whole scene has been transformed! Your ways of interacting with the world are going undergoing major transformations, Gemini.
