August Monthly Horoscope - Gemini


Dear Gemini, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to travelling, higher education, publishing or spiritual pursuits. Your mind might be wanting explosive expansion, but it’s best to marry initiative with common sense right now. On the 6th, get ready for fun, romance and games as Venus enters your 5th house! Airy Libra now supports your natural charm and your way with words. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, what seems to be light romance could quickly turn serious, tugging at your vulnerabilities and exposing them through issues linked to power, inhibition or obsession. Deep healing can come to you through relationships at this time. On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 12th house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your attitudes toward spirituality, solitude, difficult emotions or addictions. The Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th shakes up the communication area for you. Your challenge now is to communicate like a king or a queen: sovereign, sure of yourself, yet avoiding to tower over others or to find them excessive faults. It might become more and more difficult for you to entertain your mental patterns as they tire you with unreachable fantasies or obsessions. Long-term, this Eclipse will help you better organize your mental plane and find practical ways to confidently apply your ideas. Mars retrograding in Capricorn on the 12th might bring up issues around shared resources, taxes and debts, sexuality or personal transformation that you’ve encountered this May, encouraging you one more time to have responsibility and commitment when it comes to these matters.

On the 18th, the Venus-Mercury sextile might give you the opportunity to have a fun encounter, maybe with a sibling or a childhood pal, or even a re-kindling of romance with an old friend. Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of communication and learning, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse! On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 4th house, marking a time where your focus is on your home, family and inner life. Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great time to enjoy life with loved ones and to invest in your inner life: meditation, reflection and ritual, with an emphasis on things that you’ve already initiated in the past. You are supported to take responsibility for your emotions and to reflect on them in a more pragmatic way.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what you’ve started this March regarding your career and your public image. Exploring and healing the emotions that have crystallized along the years, as well as establishing inner& outer security in a safe space that you can call your home can ultimately give you the confidence to get out there and pursue a meaningful career path. How has this manifested for you since March? On the 27th, Mars goes direct- gone are the days of low energy, frustrations and delays in your studies, travels, intimate life and shared resources! Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential.
