International contacts are highlighted as August begins, with a full Aquarius social Moon Tuesday, August 1. In fact, expect surprising news from far away, something that I see will make you happy.
But so far, it hasn’t been a bed or roses. For – 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. Sometimes this manifests itself as you caring for a loved one who is ill or otherwise disabled. It is a humbling, and stressful, time.
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.
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.
Wise old Saturn, of your toughest lessons, is in your tenth house of career and reputation. Which means you can’t afford a boo-boo now. 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.)
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.
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!
You have Venus, planet of good looks, going retrograde (the past) in your third house of expression.
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.
You have these heavenly bodies in your third house ruling communications: Sun, your ruler brilliant Mercury, beauty and love planet Venus (in retrograde July 22 – September 3), new generous Leo Moon on Wednesday, August 16, the same day adoring Juno enters your tenth house. The third house is traditionally ruled by Gemini and covers all forms of transport, including cars, trains, and planes!
Your ruler Mercury in there 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:
All forms of expression and communication
Writing, emailing, and speaking
Expressing yourself through movement, also hands, arms, shoulders
Siblings, sibling-like friends, cousins, 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 that 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.
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. With Jupiter in your twelfth house all year, this is where you profit the most.
And are able to make the important career decisions that are called for towards month’s end.
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 Tarot 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 due to Venus retrograde, 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.
