Episode 235 | Gemini Season: Hit the Road (but Carry a Spare)!

This week, the Sun and Venus enter lighthearted Gemini, but things get a little serious when they aspect Pluto. Venus swoons into a conjunction with Jupiter, which enters Gemini for a one-year stay. The Full Moon in Sagittarius encourages the use of strategy to gain power, and a nearly 31-hour void-of-course Moon period offers a chance to break the people-pleasing habit! And April answers a listener question about starting up an astrology group where you live. Plus: Station wagons, pollination, and making sure everyone knows where the restroom is!
