Gemini - August 2019
Hey Gemini! Your love life should be a happier place in August, as jovial Jupiter turns direct in your house of relationships on the 12th! The period of reflection and review is over, and with it all that self-doubt and worry about how supportive a partner you are, which has been called into question during the last few months. A new time of positive energy is here, and it’s time to put into practice the lessons you have learned about compassion, generosity and being the bigger person. Jupiter is the luckiest planet in the heavens, so that feeling of being in the right place at the right time with regard to finding a soul mate should also return to you now. The days of the 17th to 24th when Jupiter trines Mercury are especially beneficial for meeting someone new; this is also a good week to talk out difficult issues with your loved one, as the atmosphere is permeated by compromising and forgiving energy.
Neptune is feeling quietly confident in your career sector this month, as he subtly strengthens important links with Saturn and Jupiter which will impact on your life right through to the year end. His connection with Jupiter is a challenging one, signifying persistent conflicts with colleagues, particularly in one to one situations where you are working in partnership and relying on one another for creative support. You may find now that these people are not as clever, courageous or inventive as they bigged themselves up to be, and it will be down to you to ensure projects run smoothly. Saturn’s influence is more positive and is taking you to a place in your working life now where you feel confident about accepting and maintaining those positions of responsibility which you have previously shied away from. Working with charitable and humanitarian organisations is also a common feature of this transit pattern.
Communication of all kinds receives a boost from Mercury between the 12th and 29th, and these are fabulous days for sharing thoughts and opinions with others, attending to analytical or administrative work, and dealing with educational establishments and teachers. The first of two August new Moons also shines here on the 1st, sending you important information which will help you to decide where you want to be next on your life path. The Moon does square Uranus at this time though, a connection which might unexpectedly reveal a secret that should not have been shared. The full Moon of the 13th draws attention away from the mental busyness of this new Moon energy, and encourages you to reflect on your spiritual and psychic development and allow yourself to relax a little more, so that you can hear your inner voice guiding you.
Our second new Moon of the month occurs on the 30th in your domestic zone, and marks a time of what should, in general, be happy changes in your home life. The Moon conjuncts a significant number of planets during these last days of the month, drawing you into some deeply personal experiences with your family, which will help you to reflect on your past and how childhood expectations have influenced your current aspirations. The Sun and Mars will also link up here after the 24th and into mid-September, an excellent period for saying your piece in disputes with difficult relatives, and attending to domestic chores and DIY tasks. Some more assertive days this month for planning and achieving goals are the 4th to 6th and 13th to 16th, when the Moon forms a helpful trine with your natal Sun. Have a marvellous August!
