Gemini August Horoscope 2016

Last month (and continuing into this month) retrograde activity among the planets came to peak for the year. Even after the 2nd, as Saturn starts moving forwards again, we are on the brink of the peak of retrograde activity. Things move slower in the world at large. Interestingly, you don’t seem too much touched by all this, not in a personal way. Mercury, the ruler of your Horoscope, has been moving speedily – faster than usual. This shows that you are covering a lot of ground and making much personal progress. For your things haven’t slowed down that much.

Mercury’s speed motion indicates good levels of self-confidence and self-esteem. You are never in one place for too long. You are achieving and doing.

The other major headline this month is Jupiter’s move into Virgo on the 11th. The last time he was here was twelve years ago. This is an important transit; Jupiter is your lovely planet, so this move shows significant changes here. Your needs in love are changing. Communication is still important for you in love, but now you want emotional intimacy – emotional sharing – as well. You show love by giving emotional support and this is where you feel loved. Never mind the wisecracks and witticisms now; give emotional support.

The love planet in the sign of Virgo produces other challenges. You and the beloved (and the people you meet) can be as well perfectionist in love. This can lead to destructive criticism, which is always a killer for romance. Criticism will understand you closer to perfection. It will be a challenge to keep the criticism constructive, and to withhold it when the timing is not a good.

In the month, ahead love is strengthened. The 3rd to 8th brings happy romantic opportunities: Venus conjuncts Jupiter from the 3rd to the 6th and Mercury conjuncts the love planet from the 6th to the 8th. Marriage is little likelihood – not this year anyway –, but the trusts are happy.

Your 4th house of home and family becomes very powerful after the 23rd. Moves or opportunities to move are punished. There will be more entertaining from home and more socializing with family members. Pursue your career by the methods of night. Visualize, dream and affirm. Enter, as best you can, the feeling-state of being where you want to become career wise. Later, when the planetary power shifts, you will be in a position to adopt outward, overt actions towards these things.
