Curiously Connecting to New Outlets
August is a time for you to do what you do best — multi-task and push yourself to be out and about. I encourage you to do just that, given the intensities surrounding the month kick-off. Your mind is on over-load and it’s going to be better for you to get outside of your head and all that thinking…..and internalizing. Thankfully, there’s a lot happening to help you to do that. The season ahead is one that can help you light your fire and begin making new connections. A time of initiations surrounds you with Mars moving fast and furiously ahead in your house of networking. I want you to grab the opportunities, while they are hot ….. because things will get a lot slower next month.
The heat of the Sun will be asking you to push the envelope in more ways than one. It’s also possible that you find yourself involved more with friends, neighbors and even relatives (like cousins, aunts and uncles). Be in tune with your boundaries along the way. New definitions of where your line begins and ends may need to be sorted through.
Venus finally leaves your sign, as well, which is going to create a major shift. Added attention now comes into your money house … including the potential to manifest additional income. A new and improved need to speak up and get your point across will be coming on strong! A bigger focus on communications with others promises to be a major part of the weeks ahead. Communication is something you’re very good at Gemini…so this is a keen time to get your thoughts out into the open. Let your curiosity lead the way.
Maybe you decide to get in the car and take a short road trip. There’s lots of possibilities and you’ll need some hope factors to keep your momentum up.

On August 1 your ruler Mercury will be making a strong opposition to Pluto. Intense thoughts, including fears of the unknown may surround you. New thoughts will begin swirling surrounding how to tackle the forces you’re feeling opposed by.

You ruling Mercury finally makes a sign change on August 4 and begins to influence the same area the Sun is influencing – your house of communications. I’d expect some news or some sort of movement to begin, as a result! You’ll be more than ready to GO somewhere. Mars will also be putting some pressure on Jupiter at the same time, possibly creating some luck, strength and courage to keep forging ahead.
On August 7, Venus also makes a MAJOR sign change (something she hasn’t done since April!) She will leave your sign and enter a totally the new playing field of Cancer. It’s now time for your money & values sector to start getting the planet of love’s attention. This helps you to attract material possessions, money and people. Financial opportunities now have a great likely hood of showing up. With that being said, it’s important to be careful of over-spending. You will be drawn to beautiful things so watch out! An important caveat to be aware of is that later in the month (beginning on Aug 25), Venus will go up against Jupiter, Pluto & ultimately Saturn (in early September). Ouch!
