Gemini, August 2019 is likely to find you feeling a bit trapped in intense situations, both at home and at work. There will be some tough moments this month, but you have the ability to get through it using your quietly honed intelligence and social skills. You will be likely to find a lot of distractions this month to make everything bearable, and it's definitely good to find some balance in this so that you don't avoid dealing with your problems all together.
The first part of August will be all about trying to find order in what you perceive as chaos, in most of the areas of your life. You will probably find yourself watching old TV shows during this time that are predictable and make you feel a sense of comfort that you need right now.
The second part of August will be a lot calmer and you will find it easier to navigate a lot of the aspects of life that were trying just days prior. Things will make more sense to you and there will be more of a sense of order to your life. This will make it a lot easier to deal with those things that are still bothering you, Gemini.
In terms of work, the first part of August will find you feeling like nothing is making much sense and you need extra energy to get things done. Colleagues who were previously at your side and helping you seem to have evaporated into the air. Likely they're off doing their own project or socializing with other colleagues. You will feel more frazzled and less centered than usual. There will be a few setbacks that make you feel at wits end, but you will get through it as you should know you are fully capable of. There is likely to be at least one coworker, probably someone you haven't worked closely in the past, that will suddenly show up at the last minute and help you achieve some work you thought may slip through your hands.
The second half of August will help things adjust back into place. You will feel a lot better about work and there is likely to be an increase in the productivity of those around you, which will decrease your workload substantially. There will probably be some repercussions to the previous behavior of others that you will find somewhat satisfying, though still a little bad on some level. You will feel, in general, relieved about how work has shifted. However, you will now feel a new focus that is, in itself, very exhausting to fulfill. It's important to pace yourself and not get too overwhelmed at this time.
Socially, the first part of August will find you feeling largely outpaced by your friends in terms of their energy level. You will likely want to do quiet things, so it is best to seek out your fellow Air signs and possibly also your Water sign friends to hang out, as they will be at relatively the same pace as you. There may be a few events that are too tempting to pass up to go to, but afterward, you'll need more time to recoup than normal. You are likely to be into small gatherings involving movie watching, most likely comedies and other distracting materials.
The second part of August is likely to find you enjoying your friends even more, and friends that had been distant will suddenly be back in your life, bringing their charm and joy back to you as they enjoy your calm, but entertaining wit in conversation. There is likely to be slightly bigger outings now, and also intimate moments with good friends that involve interesting conversations that make you feel like you've had a good time and learned something.
The beginning of August will find your inner self feeling constrained and a bit trapped. You will have trouble taking much time to yourself without thinking about other things that are stressing you out. You will need to take a deep breath and do just the right amount of things that distract you so you can take a moment to yourself. It is likely that you will not really examine these feelings until they are well passed.
As August continues, things will calm down, and though you will still not be inwardly focused, it will be easier to take breaks from life and to thinking about the things that weigh on you. You are likely to figure out problems faster and be able to feel more relaxed in general. Projects at home will take up some of your time and you will appreciate the meditative quality of something you can do with your hands, like knitting or woodworking.
Overall, August is likely to be a bit of a long haul, Gemini, and you will face issues that make you feel uncomfortable. But you have the strength to get through it, and you are fully capable of making things happen for yourself out of these events down the road.
