Gemini August Horoscope

Your career planet is still retrograde this month, and your 4th house of home and family becomes ultra powerful from the 23rd onwards. So we have a clear message from the Cosmos. Focus on the home and family and let career issues go for a while. They need time to resolve themselves. It will be beneficial to gain clarity about the career. Get facts. Don’t make rash decisions. Once you have the facts, you’ll be in a position to make good career decisions when Neptune starts to move forward at the end of the year.

Mercury, the ruler of your Horoscope, has his solstice from the 28th to the 30th. He pauses in the heavens (in latitude) and then changes direction. So this will happen for you – a pause in your affairs and then a change of direction. This is a pause that refreshes; it’s nothing to be alarmed about.

Retrograde activity increases even further this month. Half the planets are retrograde, and this isn’t even the maximum for the year (that will happen next month). So, things slow down in your life and in the world. The next few months are about learning patience – being perfect in all that you do. If you do everything right – though it slows you down – you reduce the probabilities of delays and glitches occurring. (These will happen anyway, but you reduce their numbers.)

Health needs more watching this month, especially from the 23rd onwards. Make sure, as always, to get enough rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Also give more attention to the heart – massage the heart reflex (see the reflexology chart in the yearly report).

Foreign lands are calling to you these days – your 9th house is very strong – but avoid foreign travel from the 20th onwards. The two planets that rule it in your chart – Jupiter, the generic ruler and Uranus, the actual ruler – are both retrograde. If you must travel allow more time to get to and from your destination. Insure your tickets so that you can change dates.

Mars is still in your 4th house all month so it is still a good time to undertake renovations or repairs in the home. Redecorating is also well-favoured until the 16th.
