Hello my Sweethearts, I’m happy to present to you this month’s reading for Gemini Guy.
The year is racing by and while it seems a bit of a cliché, this year has certainly gone quickly because the planets have all been in forward motion.
However, this month we have Venus which is retrograde for the entire month in Leo and we have Mercury turning retrograde, so this indicates a “lazy, hazy days of summer” feeling, or perhaps if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s a cozy time hibernation. Either way, this is a rather good month to wind down and experience a little bit of downtime and contemplation.
There’s a New Moon in Leo and Mars enters Libra at the end of the month.
It’s best to get things done, in terms of important activities with Gemini Guy, early in the month as things slow down as the month goes on with Mercury going to a station.
Venus retrograde in Leo – the way whole of August
Venus being retrograde in Leo for the entire month is particularly important for those of you involved in long-distance relationships with Gemini Guy because the frequency, depth, and meaningfulness of your communications will be more relevant. On one hand, this could be a time where, if you guys have just been chatting online, the relationship can take a turn and can become a lot more passionate.
At the same time, little things like jealousy and a certain amount of possessiveness can creep in. So while Gemini Guy is generally not a controlling person and he likes to have fun and flirty conversations, right now he is more heart on sleeve, his feelings are a little bit exposed and so he really needs to know that you care and the relationship is important to you.
He needs to hear the words “I love you” and he’s quite keen on getting verbal reassurance right now. If you are dating in person or you are married, you can give that reassurance via using affection, mirroring, and positive body language so these are things to focus on.
He’s less about meaningless, no strings attached fun as he wants to have a more constructive approach to love. So conversations will have a slightly warmer, deeper, velvety texture rather than the bright and breezy norm of Gemini Guy.
New Moon in Leo – 16th August
There’s a New Moon in Leo which is actually conjunct the Venus retrograde, which means (particularly for Gemini Guy) an important time in terms of relationship communication, and this can have various elements. It can be a time to introduce a little bit of mystery and intrigue via electronic romance; it’s a time to be more creative with communication by using different modes of communication and it’s also time to pay attention to body language and eye contact as important mode of communication.
Gemini guy is usually very verbal, as you know, Gemini being an air sign, but sometimes this month he is picking up on other signals and so you need to be more careful of the signals your actions and mannerisms are portraying to him.
Mars in Virgo opposite Neptune – 23rd August
This particular transit can be quite tricky in terms of the family life arena and the goals you have set for various renovations or alterations. This is a time when it’s probably best to stick with what you know and be fairly conservative. It’s not a good time for any major spending in terms of household or home, and it’s also not necessarily a good time for house hunting.
Even though Gemini Guy is likely to have itchy feet, this is a period where he is less satisfied with where he’s living, he may begin to think about moving or he could even be missing home.
Sometimes issues with his parents can cause him upset. This generally a time when he needs more emotional support, he could be a little bit of introverted and he’s less likely to share. He plays his cards close to his chest and when something is bothering him, he can either put on an act or go very quiet, so it’s rather important to have empathy with him during his face.
Mercury retrograde in Virgo – 24th August
With Mercury retrograde in Virgo and Sun in Virgo opposite Saturn the work world is beckoning and he can feel a slight bit of anxiety about the way things are going and terms of his career or work life, but it’s an important time for him to assess and evaluate.
This is definitely not an action phase where it comes to finances or career moves, it’s a time of careful planning, understanding the facts and doing more research. This is also time when he has to be fairly conservative, it’s not a good idea for him to be confrontational, unconventional or to go against the grain. It’s best for him to play the percentages right now and not ruffle the feathers of those in authority. It’s definitely a time of caution and conservatism in work.
His moods and feelings influence his communication making it more difficult for him to be clear when presenting his point of view, so you have to read between the lines. He may take constructive criticism too much to heart.
Theme of the month : The key to love success is some introspection, self-reflection, and after that open communication and embracing vulnerability. By addressing these obstacles head-on, you can learn valuable lessons about trust, authenticity, and the power of inner liberation.
Magic Phrase: “I can feel this relationship is going to weather all storms.”
Magic Text: “My feeling for you run deeper than words can say.”
Do: The new moon phase extends from the 16th of August to the 30th of August this waxing phase is the perfect fortnight for new initiatives, setting plans, establishing goals, starting anything prospective and being proactive.
Financial affairs, new business and sales volume are favored. A good time for investing and buying assets for a business. A great time for a promotion or increase. New romance and dating are very successful. An excellent time for marriage. Long-haul travel is favored. New business partnerships are successful. Personal development and spiritual growth are favored.
Avoid: Not an ideal time for totally new activities or vigorous physical exercise. Dental work is not favored. Sporting competitive events are also not ideal. Not a great time for leadership.
Property matters and home improvements are not favored. Not a good time for PR, public speaking or challenging authority.
Week 1 – A matter of trust
This is an excellent week in terms of Gemini Guy being able to get to grips with concerns that are deeply personal to him, so while this is not always a time when he necessarily wants to share, if you are in a very strong relationship he may just want to let you into a few of his secrets.
He’s rather sensitive to everything and everyone around him and he’s also more impressionable than usual, however this increased level of ESP allows him to attract what is right for him and he can suddenly appreciate what is inappropriate.
In the best relationships, he will experience contentment with those closest to him and the more you show him support, the more he’ll trust you. Establishing trust will help him to let go of any lingering insecurities.
Week 2 – Land called fantasy
This is one of the best weeks for romance and sexual matters with Gemini Guy. He is ready to have his imagination stimulated and he’s eager for sharing fantasies.
It’s an important time for you both to seek escapism and it’s a wonderful time to revive a love of music, go to festivals, concerts and just get out of your routine.
While I don’t recommend being irresponsible, this is a good time for you guys to introduce some adventure into your life, do things you haven’t done for a while, go off with friends who make you feel daring. It’s an important time to push the boundaries a little bit, to change your expectations.
Try to understand where your life is stuck in a box and look for ways to open that box, to prize it open and to see some opportunities that might just open doors to a more fulfilling life. It’s a wonderful time to address stagnation in your lives.
Week 3 – Your little secrets
This week it’s definitely a test in terms of how well you communicate: if your communication with Gemini Guy is lacking, it’s more likely there’s going to be a sense of distrust or anxiety about each other’s true feelings.
However if you guys are on the same page and you have a really strong connection, this is a wonderful time for deepening your communication, for a developing relationship rituals, in-house jokes and little pet names that only you guys know. This is a time where the little secrets you have as a couple are a very important way of bonding and experiencing greater togetherness.
This is definitely a week where he is impulsive, he’s very impatient with anything that’s routine or boring so it’s a wonderful time to take a road trip, to be on holiday and to be taking spontaneous journeys. If you are holidaying, he will prefer holidays where there’s lots of activities and entertainment, rather than just lying on a beach.
He’s quite sociable and ready to make new friends, so if you are looking for a quiet time life with Gemini Guy, good luck, as he’s in a hectic mood.
Week 4 – Fire up the romance
His sensitivity to your opinions and moods may cause him to retreat from involved emotional discussions, especially when he feels that these may lead to anything heated or quite contentious.
Misunderstandings and problems are more likely this week, and it may be best to put off anything you guys aren’t really prepared for, especially family gatherings or large-scale activities regarding your home.
Mars heads into Libra for a two months period this week and that is fantastic for getting romances off the ground, so if you and Gemini Guy have just been chatting and feeling each other out, this is a time when romance becomes a lot more passionate.
He’s a lot more assertive in terms of dating, so he’s more likely to give you gifts, to arrange surprises and romance can really progress as he’ll be quite impatient about seeing some progress in terms of understanding your feelings.
Show a lot of interest, be enthusiastic and you’re sure to win his heart. If you are married to Gemini Guy start thinking ahead to the winter months and September and what you can do to set your romance alight, because he is certainly up for it now.
So August is set to be an interesting time, there’s a note of caution about being thoughtful about the way you are communicating. You may also need to be more sensitive to some of his deeper issues as at some stages of this month, he is fairly vulnerable and needs support, but he’s also adventurous and fun-loving too. So there’s a spontaneous and quirky side to this month which should keep it very interesting.
It’s an absolutely ideal time for holidays, short trips or for internet dating, and if you are internet dating an ideal month to meet for the first time.
However, this month it’s possible that you guys may be spending more time apart due to work commitments, but it’s certainly possible to keep the love life alive via creative communication electronically, so think outside the box and surprise him with some new modes of electronic titillation.
Wishing you love and luck with your Gemini Man,
Your sister and relationship astrologer,
