Today Mars in Capricorn squares Chiron in Aries. Mars asserts his authority and control through actions or conditions that have historically felt restrictive, hurtful, or victimizing in some regard.
The good news is that you may be able to see how something that chronically “handicaps” you – or puts you at a distinct disadvantage can be applied in a new way to work in your favor. Integrating a new and different perspective gives you an unlikely advantage – a nice “work-around” that transforms a vulnerability into something that gives you a distinct advantage – or the upper hand. If you’re willing to work in a disciplined/focused way you might find the source of some “hidden power or potential” you’ve historically defined as unfortunate. The key is to look at the big picture and to take a holistic approach to the entirety of what is. You might recognize an some healing gift or mechanism that’s been disguised a handicap. This could bring you to an important turning point.
On a different note you might have to deal with a mentor who expresses disappointment in you or your efforts – or you imagine that to be the case.

Nurturing in the “parenting/care-giving sense” involves listening skills, making connections through communicating, sharing ideas, teaching, observing, and analyzing to clarify what’s actually true. It’s complicated. With Gemini two things can be true at once.
What you’re attempting to cultivate benefits from an approach aligned with natural processes, natural timing, the flow of the life, and the rhythm of the seasons.
