Like a tree itching to shake off its dry leaves, you want change, a new beginning, but really you need to work on trust issues. Probably unresolved core issues from the past. Painful stuff, I know. The last few days of July all wants to blow. Thanks to a confrontational square between Uranus in your unconscious house and Leo sun in your third house of words, the latter may come spewing out like Linda Blair in The Exorcist.
International contacts are also highlighted as July ends. In fact, expect surprising news with the lunar eclipse full Moon Friday, July 27. It’s the longest eclipse of the century. Made extra punchy by Mars retrograde in this same ninth house. Mars will come closer to the earth than it has since 2003. What were you doing in 2003? Hopefully not fighting a war with another country. (You get my gist.)
Look to Jupiter in your sixth house. House of health, work, and service! Do something healthy and productive, like beating a pillow, or burying your head in work after screaming in the shower. Or vacuuming the house for three hours. MUCH better.
Try whispering, whispering, whispering from your heart, even as you crave escape. BREATHE. Pause. Be kind. Listen.
Remember, everyone’s volatile right now, can’t be helped.
I have never seen so many retrogrades in my life. EIGHT. That’s an insane number.
Generally it is two or three, or even four.
Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Uranus, Chiron, Vesta. All in retrograde. This is why everyone is so so touchy. But you know what, Gemini? You are going to use this to make your life BEAUTIFUL. How? By flowing with it, by not fighting the tide, by entering that retrograde swimming motion as if your life depended on it. It does.
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, is in your eighth house of sharing. Sharing everything from honesty to sex to bank accounts to mutual resources. With your partner or a collective trust or a company. So, here, in these areas 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 it.
The most positive part of this experience 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.
And you can 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 royal you are, and take it. Pressure is on in the public arena to prove your mettle.
Your desires will be popping up all over the place: do not ignore them! In fact, the universe is urging you to express them – and thus yourself – as humanely as possible this August.
As impatient as you may feel for these good luck areas to start manifesting, you should know that you are more in control of results than you think. How you talk, walk, behave, dress, and generally express yourself now makes ALL the difference.
Another hot tip for this at the beginning of August: you may decide to take on a look that you think of as the “old you” – and it will do very well. Go for it! You have the strength to pull it off even better this time round!
Insecurity stops plaguing your career and public zone. If you’ve been waiting for a particular success or recognition, it is likely at the end of the month.
Then time to sort out your belief system and your creativity. You can now be choosier about – well, about what you want to THINK ABOUT.
The pressure you feel now is opportunity. Mere, and huge time, opportunity. Decide what you really want, and you hold the world in the palm of your hand. It’s a lot to hold.
Act like a mama or papa bear, protect your brood, maintain security and stability, think and plan long term. In the next six weeks – until September 10 – homes, properties, real estate, gold, shells, family, places of childhood, first relatives are all extremely lucky for you.
You have heavenly bodies in your third house ruling communications: Sun, your ruler brilliant Mercury (in retrograde July 26 to August 19), wise Pallas, and a solar eclipse new Moon on Saturday, August 11. The third house is traditionally ruled by Gemini and covers all forms of transport, including cars, trains, and planes! Wise Pallas gives you the chance to do some foreign recon.
Now, in case I haven’t covered everything, here’s all that your third house rules:
Healing problems of communication
Writing, emailing, and speaking
Expressing yourself through movement, also hands, arms, shoulders
Being in closer touch with your siblings or neighbors
Short trips and visits
Publishing and recording
Your communicative power will be felt by all who know you. You have a particularly powerful effect on the internet and through writing and recording.
This is all good news. Even money will be better. The twists and turns of July so far have been enough for any Gemini – but now it starts to go more smoothly. Where I have cause for concern is in your domestic affairs and results will be mixed. One day you will be up (about it), the next down.
Try to remember this may simply be an experience you are feeling about relationships, rather than anything about this relationship, per se. Think before you speak this August.
Usually so ON in social situations, you may be playing to an empty house for a couple of weeks. People just won’t be there, especially for the parties you love so much.
But – secretly, doesn’t that give you a feeling of relief? You may prefer to keep to yourself or hang out with family and old boring friends!
Just think, dear Gemini – you can catch up with yourself, and spend more quality time at home. While everyone’s off doing whatever they’re doing, you can be relaxing and entertaining yourself.
How on earth…I can hear you saying. Well, it’s actually really good news.
For one, you can avoid the planetary storm that’s going on outside your front door.
Home is a good place to be now because there are changes afoot there too. Whatever comes up in terms of your home and family right now, somehow you’ll be caught before you fall.
Writer Jean Giradoux famously wrote: “Those who weep recover more quickly than those who smile.”
These words are valuable for you now, Gemini, because you can no longer be frozen or remain alone in yourself.
It is time for you to share the deepest part of yourself. You are healing and renewing at the deepest level.
Allow yourself to say NO to maddening family members. Just close the door. You may feel a little disoriented, but it won’t be so bad. The more time you can spend with yourself, the more grounded you’ll feel.
And able to make the important career decisions that are called for towards month’s end.
And there are brilliant career aspects ahead. No matter what’s just gone down. Be patient, and hang in there. Don’t rush or push anything.
Your world is growing larger, Gemini, and you are ready to meet it. Bravo!
Your self-worth will undergo a profound transformation this August. Give yourself – and others – plenty of space as you go through this.
Or you may say things you regret later. Your most charitable moments will save you. Be cautious and wise with all the people in your immediate neighborhood, including thy neighbors.
So prepare to be surprised. The card I picked for you for August is The Wheel of Fortune – which means literally anything could happen.
Domestically you will sort it out and in terms of your professional plan, there will be some delays once your Mercury retrograde begins, but overall you seem pleased. Mishaps will not throw you and you will feel proud of yourself as August comes to a close.
Everyone else may be screaming – but not you.
Is it time for your own private session?
I look forward to speaking with YOU, Gemini.
With love, Madalyn
