For the week beginning with the waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio, August 7 - August 14th:
The sky is full of Leo fire which is tons of fun for you Geminis. Your planetary ruler Mercury joins the Sun, Venus, and Mars in your Leo 3rd house of communication, which is what Geminis are all about!
We begin the 2nd lunar quarter on Wednesday, August 7th, exact at 1:31 PM EDT. This quarter Moon asks you to take action on the seeds planted or ideas germinated at the Leo New Moon regarding communication, short trips, and siblings. You might find that you need to make some adjustment in your work or routine so you can proceed with your course of action.
On Thursday, August 8th, Venus in your Leo 3rd house forms a beautiful flowing exchange with Jupiter in your Sagittarius 7th house of partnership (either intimate or professional.) I imagine that gracious and diplomatic communications on your part can lead now to new partnerships, either loving or financial.
The Moon enters your Sagittarius 7th about the same time, bringing emotional focus to matters of partnership.
August 11th is a busy day among the planets as Jupiter turns direct, Mercury enters Leo, and Uranus turns retrograde.
Since April, retrograde Jupiter has been asking you to review your beliefs or your spiritual growth in your area of partnerships. Current relationships can expand into new territory, or opportunities for new partnerships arise. Jupiter is almost stopped now at 14˚ Sagittarius and will begin to creep forward on August 11th. By then you should have a renewed sense of optimism and expansion.
Also on August 11th, your chart ruler Mercury re-enters your Leo 3rd house, picking up speed after his backward movement into Cancer. Mercury joins the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Leo, placing special emphasis on your 3rd house. You are already good with words, Gemini, and a brilliant thinker. Mercury in your third house can enhance those talents even further.
Uranus has been parked at 6˚ Taurus in your 12th house for weeks now and will turn retrograde on August 11th. You’ve been feeling his presence, but in ways that might be difficult to express. The 12th house is a hidden place, the place where we sweep under the carpet those matters we’re not ready to face. Uranus is the planet of change and revolution. He often brings sudden and unexpected disruption. Think back to May of this year, and also to May through October of last year when Uranus was briefly in Taurus. What issues has Uranus blown out from under the rug? Any insights or gut feelings?
On August 14th, Venus joins with the Sun in your 3rd house of communication, short trips, and siblings. You Geminis get lots of attention and recognition for your verbal brilliance already, but you may get even more this week. Take it in! But don’t forget to give others their due.
