GEMINI (May 20 – June 19)
Your ruling planet Mercury comes out of retrograde on Feb. 28. No more backwards sliding in your relationship or regressing into old behavior patterns that you know are no good and which were meant to cause a distraction anyway. You're done with the excuses, evasions and the stonewalling. So what do you have to look forward to? A very real and authentic relationship if you would give it a chance. It's clear that the ball is in your court as far as committing to a future together is concerned. The next move is yours.
