Gemini August 2017 Monthly Horoscope
Venus enters fire sign Leo on August 25th, and you can enjoy using your mind, challenging yourself mentally, coming up with new ideas, working on plans, and focusing on a variety of interests. In love, a mental connection may be your priority, and you can work to open the lines of communication as much as you can.
Uranus turns retrograde (appears to move backward) in fire sign Aries starting August 3rd, and over the coming months, you may struggle with implementing changes that impact your dreams and future, or with dealing with changes that have already been made, and you can feel a little extra restless, so avoid being impulsive.
Saturn ends his retrograde August 25th in fire sign Sagittarius, the sign opposite yours, and over the last few months, you may have struggled with your relationships, feeling more stifled and restricted than usual with your loved ones, and with the retrograde ending, you can work to improve your relationships and get more room to breathe in them.
August brings with it a Mercury retrograde starting August 12th in earth sign Virgo. A planet is called retrograde when it appears to be moving backward; it isn’t actually moving backward, it only looks that way from our view here on Earth. Retrogrades can throw things off, and with this retrograde, you can experience difficulties at home, with your family or living situation, and have to make adjustments. The foundation of something may feel shaky, and you have to work on strengthening it. You may feel emotionally uneasy, and need to give yourself more comfort and familiarity and stick to what you know best. You can also bottom out with something, and need to start over. The Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd while Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, and brings more energy and attention to the retrograde, and helps us focus on what we’re missing. Mercury is retrograde in Virgo until August 31st, and goes back into Leo, and you can struggle with open communication, misunderstandings or fights, a lack of ideas, or missing focus. Mercury retrogrades in Leo for the first week of September, and we can start getting back to normal mid-September. With Mercury also being your ruler, you can feel off in a subtle way throughout the retrograde.
August also brings the second set of eclipses for 2017. Eclipses are similar to new and full moons, but amplified, impacting for up to six months before and after. Lunar eclipses are similar to full moons, and solar eclipses are similar to new moons. A lunar eclipse occurs in fellow air sign Aquarius on August 7th, and you can feel more connected to the beliefs that you’re passionate about, and give up on the ones that you aren’t. You may focus on expanding your life and mind in some way, and you can gain a different perspective on life. A solar eclipse occurs on August 21st in Leo, and you can start lots of different projects and plans, come up with exciting new ideas, be more open with what’s on your mind, or work on learning, teaching, speaking, or writing.
