Summary Gemini Horoscope: An emphasis on communication and travel, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a housing or family matter come up for review. Saturn direct in your relationship zone could straighten out a partnership matter.
Extended Gemini Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your love and financial sectors. You might have difficulties with a love relationship or child, or find that expenses are high at this time.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your travel zone. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your love house, as well as stable Saturn in your relationship sector, suggesting that you could go on a fun vacation with your love at this time!
It’s also possible that you complete a creative project or hit a milestone with a start up business.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your communication zone, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will have a lot of travel or paperwork to do, or find yourself needing to put a lot of time and energy into maintaining a vehicle.
Some good days to address needs of this nature are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in your communication house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in your communication sector, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your love and friendship houses, and trine stable Saturn in your relationship zone!
All signs are pointing to the fact that you may make a beneficial personal or business commitment at this time. It’s also possible you go on a very romantic trip or launch a new creative venture!
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th your ruler, Mercury, goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, the retrograde will take place in your home sector, so you may need to review and revise a housing or family matter. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
I once made the mistake of signing a lease during Mercury retrograde, and although the apartment turned out to be great, the landlord was a disaster! Even my roommate turned out to be a different person than I thought she was!
If you are undergoing a home construction project, you may encounter delays and setbacks during the next few weeks. Be sure to keep a close eye on any projects- you don’t want to find your bathroom has been tiled with the wrong tile!
Mercury also rules your sign of Gemini, so it’s possible that a personal project or your independence/a relationship will come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your salary sector this month, blessing money matters.
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address financial needs.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your love and friendship houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your love house reach out happily to Saturn in your relationship zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your relationship zone, suggesting that a partnership matter will speed up or become easier.

Then, July 8th sees full moon in your shared finances zone, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to Neptune in your career house, it will conjunct transformational Pluto, oppose warrior Mars in your salary house, and square good luck Jupiter in your love zone.

An exciting aspect this month is the fact that Venus gliding her way through your sign of Gemini, bringing love, beauty, and healing into your life. Good days for romance are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th, when bosses, partners, or authority figures could prove troublesome.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into your communication sector of Leo. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury (your ruler!) makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, the True Node, and Uranus on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in your communication house on July 23th, suggesting that you may go on a trip, get a car, or make a commitment.
Next month offers even more possibilities, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo on August 21st, offering you even more opportunities for communication and commitment matters.
