There’s an excitement about you. Speak your heart, and it gets even more exciting. Fabulous social luck is around! After so many twister steps to find the security you crave, now it’s time to get away and have fun. Relationships intensify and you feel positively adored. Lovey Venus in your sign has had you as the flavor du jour.
Like a tree itching to shake off its dry leaves, you want change, a new beginning, but stay right where you are, with the children and the siblings and the cousins, talking, talking, talking from your heart, even if you crave escape.
Your career is going to be happening. New money arrangements are in the air and it’s going to go fine, except you may have to go over them again and again. Have patience!
Remember, everyone’s itchy right now, can’t be helped.
Be as productive as you can be before your ruler brainiac Mercury goes retrograde on Saturday, August 12. It remains retrograde until Tuesday, September 5 in your fourth house of home and property. House repairs and redecorating taking their time? Go with the flow. No matter what you do, it will be like this until your planet goes direct again after September 5.
Retrograde is all about going backwards, right? Going over stuff from the past. Over and over. Re-examining. Every step, every action. Rewind the video of your life. Over and over. What really happened. Rewind as many times as you need. You must catch every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat.
Write it down and record it, if it helps. You are here to make the record straight.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
Wise old Saturn, your toughest lesson, goes direct in Sagittarius August 25 in your favorite house: your seventh of marriage and partnerships. Delivering its final kick – stronger now because it has gone back – to what you owe to make this work. Saturn always has the last word, don’t even try…As Austin Powers threatened his son, “Pre-emptive shhh!” So, here, in this area you must be truthful, clean, meticulous. No short cuts. Saturn, Father TIME, hates short cuts!! Give it TIME. Do it properly. Do it right. That’s all.
I’m such a psychic nag…but seriously, you will be SO glad you did this. The most positive part of this is that you name to yourself the people with whom you feel most comfortable. Those you can really relax with and be yourself with. Your true self. (Putting on a show, or trying to keep up with the Whomevers, is so deeply exhausting, isn’t it?) That’s true freedom. And it’s priceless. Can’t be bought.
It’s the last four months of Saturn’s reign here, so all the final lessons will come rushing in. All before December 19.
Then you may enjoy the new season you have created for yourself. Bravo.
Yes, dear Gemini, life really IS that dramatic, and as your horoscope begins, you will already know never to doubt your instincts again.
You have put up with one particular situation long enough, and it is time to put your foot down. For many of you this will be about protecting a child from a negative environment, usually your own child, a child you wish to protect, or even a beloved pet.
This means a challenge is being offered to you by the universe and you must step up, like the true genius you are, and take it. Pressure is on in your community to prove your mettle. You feel this strongly with Mars in your third neighborly house. Any uncertainty or insecurity about yourself in zee public eye will lift. You take the reins firmly in hand and you go after what you want.
The high point of – or rather the tipping point for – this is, of course the almighty total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, which falls in Leo, in your third house. All these areas – your third house – will be irrevocably changed:
Cousins and neighbors and siblings and sibling-LIKE friends. (You know, those friends with whom you bicker so familiarly?)
All communications involving words: Writing, tweeting, emailing, speaking, texting, messaging
Expressing yourself through movement, also hands, arms, shoulders
Methods of transport (including your car)
Short trips and visits
Publishing and Recording
Everyone will be talking about the eclipse! So Gemini here’s the what’s what.
Already named “The Great American Eclipse”, this Leo wonder will stretch across fourteen states from Oregon to South Carolina. A stellar twist on making America great (again), it will actually eclipse the country, darkening the sun and turning day to night. “A thing most strange,” as Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth.
You don’t need to watch in order to experience its life-changing effects. Native Americans say it is a sacred union of sun and moon, and it is not for us to watch.
Eclipsing visibility, blocking light, cover-ups, alternative facts, all take center stage.
For your individual sign – check your ascendant and Jupiter also – here’s where what’s hidden comes to light.
And where you experience a sea change, for better or worse.
You can finally be honest about:
Aries: True passions. Your creations / offspring.
Taurus: Home and property. Your parents.
Gemini: Your words and gestures. Close relatives.
Cancer: Finances. What you own.
Leo: Your body. Appearance in the world.
Virgo: Your unconscious. Private dreams.
Libra: Friends. Your alliances and groups.
Scorpio: Public self. Life direction.
Sagittarius: Your education. Cultures different from yours.
Capricorn: That you share with another. (Money or intimacy.)
Aquarius: Deals and agreements.
Pisces: Health. Your work routines.
Gemini’s gestures to impress cease – and he can be exactly who he is. Libra can stop trying to please friends and social groups and just be herself. Aries can be truthful about her passions, Taurus about his parents’ origins, Cancer about finances, Leo about his maturing body, Capricorn about what she has shared, Aquarius about what agreements she made, and so on. Uncomfortable initially, but such relief.
Leo Robert Mueller shines in the news after the eclipse – with a different direction. OY? What’s this?
Astrologers vary with their eclipse predictions and not to join the alarmist American bandwagon, only to note: after unrest in Charleston, water and tides will be massively lifted, more attacks in and from DC, and America as a whole experiences a huge financial shift. I’m also advising clients not to move to Oregon.
And there’s more detail – for you individually.
The eclipse covers 1,500 miles in 90 minutes. Unprecedented since June 8, 1918, with echoes going back to August 11, 1999. What were you doing August 11, 1999? Look at diaries.
I predict hubris will fall, just as Icarus did. Wherever we have felt so inadequate that we had to cover up, impress, even lie, we can finally let it all go. Let it all fall, like idols on pedestals, like desperate gestures. We will be free of pride and illusion. C. S. Lewis wrote that pride is the anti-God state.
“It was through Pride that the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every other vice. It is the complete anti-God state of mind.”
Wikipedia describes HUBRIS:
In its ancient Greek context, it describes behavior that challenges the gods which in turn brings about the downfall of the perpetrator of hubris. Hubris indicates a loss of contact with reality.
Icarus was punished by the gods for hubris, flying too close to the sun, the fire melting his false wax wings, and he fell from the sky. Just as Trump’s hubris will bring about his fall. What better illustration than looking defiantly at the sun during its sacred union with the moon? The reality – his blindness – will be glaring.
This will be a time of reckoning for those who have allowed pride and greed to take over to the extent that they are no longer healthy. Forcing the eyes open is a painful surgery! So don’t be surprised if, prior to your deeper vision, you are in agony.
The planet of reckoning is wise Saturn, which rules Capricorn, which rules foundations.
And Saturn goes direct August 25, four days after the eclipse. The pendulum swings back. Watch: August 21 – 26.
Capricorn can finally be truthful about shared monies. Higher ups who don’t will fall, beginning with (statue) Capricorn Robert E. Lee (almost half his chart is Capricorn: Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron) to still extant Capricorns Anthony Scaramucci, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr, Eric Trump, Jeff Sessions, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Michael Flynn. And in North Korea, Capricorn Kim Jong-un.
Capricorn Betsy DeVos continues to be protected by Libra Jupiter until October 10 (as do Libra Jupiter Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump, also a Libra Jupiter.)
As the sun’s power is eclipsed, the moon’s power brightens. Revealing unconscious drives, the inner movement of the world, the energy of the water on the earth: All that is ruled by the moon.
A fascinating point about the moon: It rules need.
When does need become greed, and when does addiction take over?
When does addiction become so powerful that other beings are disregarded?
When does a sociopathic disorder begin?
For the world, this will be overwhelmingly positive. After much doublespeak, the truth – no matter what it reveals – will be a great relief. August’s last week will be an eye-opener, in every sense of the word.
Every country has its secrets, but the two most highlighted during this time will be America (higher ups coming off their pedestals) and to a lesser extent Britain (the royal family.)
I end with Shakespeare again – the greatest, Leo Jupiter – who always wrote of the direct connection between the heavens, stars, nature, animals, and human beings.
Gemini desires will be popping up all over the place. The universe is urging you to express them – and thus yourself – as much as you can. (Sorry, but I do predict Gemini DT will tweet the tweet to end all tweets under this eclipse.)
For YOU, however, insecurity stops plaguing your career and public zone. If you’ve been waiting for a success or recognition, it comes at the end of the month.Then time to sort out your belief system. You can now be choosier about – well, about what you want to THINK ABOUT. (Gemini’s main preoccupation.)
The pressure you feel now is opportunity. Remember: frustration is the shirking of potentiality. Decide what you really want, and you hold the world in the palm of your hand. It’s not so much to hold…
Time for your own private session?
If you’re hesitant, or haven’t been read before, please read what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with you, Gemini. Take care.
With love, Madalyn
