Monthly Gemini horoscope for August 2023, what to pay attention to
Dear Gemini, in August 2023, you will have to learn a couple of lessons through personal experience. Almost all planets are in retrograde or, like Mercury, are preparing to start their retrograde cycle. However, your summer schedule is bustling with activity due to the placement of the Sun in the constellation of Leo, where it will stay for the first three weeks of the month, influencing your 3rd house of close social interactions. Nevertheless, due to the conflicting nature of Gemini, you will need to keep yourself in check throughout August, sometimes restraining your desires and applying the brakes. So, let's go through everything in order.
The month begins with an exciting full moon in the rebellious sign of Aquarius and your ninth house of expanding horizons, prompting individuals of your sign to shed the limiting conventions and live according to the wind's will. Dear Gemini, you are the master of your own life; there's no doubt about it! In simpler terms, this lunar aspect in early August serves as a reminder that your dreams and personal desires should take up more space. This theme may become relevant for you in the coming months. However, you may be abruptly pulled back at the very beginning of August. The ruling planet of your sign, Mercury, opposes retrograde Saturn on August 2, 2023, calling on Gemini to prioritize order and maintain a more balanced approach to your responsibilities, despite your desires. Of course, this is not a reason to give up! Despite the pressure you may face, you should regroup and make plans while waiting for the right moment.
By the way, about plans, especially if they concern your family, home, or close relationships. On August 10th, Gemini may experience a surge of spiritual inspiration when your ruling planet, Mercury, vibrates favorably with the planet of luck, Jupiter. This month, it will be a rare favorable aspect with planets that are not yet retrograde, so it should not be discounted. Furthermore, Jupiter will be in Taurus, your 12th house of secrets and divine inspiration, which may predict the unveiling of important information before you. You may intuit something or even have a dream with an implicit hint that you initially won't attach any importance to. Understanding will most likely come later. In a week, a new moon is expected in the constellation of Leo and your communicative 3rd house, which will give you the opportunity to revisit some important conversations or contemplate the significance of recent events.
Do not hesitate to come up with new ideas and set future goals for yourself during the period of the new moon in Leo starting on August 16th, as its influence will be short-lived. Furthermore, two important astrological events will take place on August 23rd. Firstly, on this day, the Sun will move into the constellation of Virgo, marking the beginning of the new autumn season of 2023. Secondly, your ruler, Mercury, will begin its retrograde cycle, making it difficult to smoothly start new projects. Moreover, Mercury will have a stronger impact on you as it will be in your fourth house of family and home comfort during its retrograde, causing confusion in this sector of your horoscope. In other words, its backward movement can strike close to home, creating obstacles in Gemini's family communication and reviving old dramas in your personal life. On the other hand, if you manage to overcome possible negativity, you have a chance to fix things. The period of Mercury's retrograde transit through the fourth house of your sign is an excellent time to work on your unfinished home projects.
