This is another in the series of interesting and intense months for you Gemini. You are finding a great focus on learning, and as well on speaking and writing, as is some of your favorite pursuits, and of course you do better when you choose not to let currently dire societal circumstances get in your way. With faith in the cosmos and in your own future goals, you can take the lemons in what life offers and make lemonade, as true now as at any other time. You are continuing to transform yourself from the inside out, and that is perhaps your most important current product. A significant part of your journey of discovery is that you tune in most deliberately to your own depths, striving to see what you might find there. Your intuition is incredibly well developed at this timing, and will tell you true when you give it the chance; you must first be willing to leave simple logic behind, and to trust in the power of the universe to guide you onward.

Since Venus first entered your sign back in April you have been caught in a whirlwind, which you are now just emerging out of. You can finally catch your breath while integrating all the new elements that have been thrown at you in the last four months. Mercury’s recent retrograde in Cancer plus the recent New Moon there helped clear out any doubts you had surrounding your financial realm, and allowed you to organize your priorities. You’ve reset your stance regarding what you can expect from others, and gained some autonomy in the process. However there are still contracts that bind you to others, and these agreements are highlighted at the beginning of August. A heavy hand might be required in your negotiations in order to get what you want, and you could feel pressured to compromise. There is tension indicated especially when it comes to shared financial matters.
The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 3rd shines her light on a teaching journey, and illuminates recent decisions connected to academia or travel. Your curiosity is summoned to what might turn out to be esoteric or subtle realizations. Uranus in Taurus squaring the Full Moon could additionally trigger some restlessness or anxiety that is hard to pinpoint. Take advantage of this Full Moon to use your intuition to try to get to the roots of what is bothering you. A change of perspective may help you to prioritize. Mercury in Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn suggests that things will be slow moving so best to be patient with delays at the risk of feeling frustrated.
Your ruling planet Mercury enters Leo and swiftly moves across this sign from August 4th to August 19th. Mercury in Leo will help you get your point across endowing you with the courage to take a stance for what you truly care about. You may have more convincing powers while Mercury is in Leo which is excellent if you have to market yourself and broadcast your skills.
Venus leaves your sign and enters Cancer on the 7th of August where she will grace your financial sector. This could be both good and bad as Venus can bring financial blessings while also giving the propensity to splurge. And this is a good thing to keep in mind for the rest of the month.
Solutions or an important peace offering could come your way during the second week of August. The Last Quarter Moon in Taurus on the 11th brings up some inner tensions and anxiety, especially relating to a financial situation. Take the time to unplug. You do not need to be in performance mode 24/7. Time off can help you regroup and focus on what is essential.
On the 17th Mercury unites with the Sun in Leo for its superior conjunction. This is happening in your communication sector and should boost your signal. The complexities surrounding a situation or a group dynamic finally start making sense.
The second half of August can be made to feel less complicated if you are honest. Expressing your needs at this time is important to avoid any more misunderstandings. It is also a good time to deal with resentment or anger more wholeheartedly.
The New Moon in Leo on the 18th is your opportunity to think about the ways in which you communicate with your entourage. With Saturn prominent in your intimacy sector, close connections could feel blocked or transformed. Siblings and family members take center stage in coming days, as we progress through the month.
Mercury enters Virgo on the 19th, and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd in your home sector. It may be time to take a break, and enjoy the last month of summer. You may also be dealing with a move, relocation, or renovations, perhaps needing to be splitting your time between your professional and personal life.
Mars in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn, from the New Moon timing on, brings tensions during the last two weeks of August. A difficult group dynamic is highlighted again, and you might even be wondering why you bother in the first place. You may not be able to extricate yourself from a problem, but instead could be forced to dig in and find a solution. Mercury in Virgo trine Uranus in Taurus on the 25th can bring some pretty ingenious ideas, particularly if you can stay open. The answer may be hiding in plain sight.
