Last year I set intentions around Gemini's rulership of motion and activity. I wanted to hone my driving skills and get regular access to a car so I could plan short trips into nature. Just two months later I was put in charge of a car for five months and I had the opportunity to get comfortable driving and I went on many short trips outside of New York City.
