For you Gemini August 2012 the First Full Moon on the 2nd August may reflect a crisis of faith, and your belief system could feel shaky as certain events may test you over the next two weeks.
Horoscope for Gemini August 2012 (Gemini 21 May – 20 June)
Your Planetary Ruler Mercury turns direct on 8th August. This is good news for you Gemini as you are particularly affected by his retrograde periods, although some are worse than others. Until the 8th your self-image and how you present yourself to others may be affected. It is a good time for renewing an old knowledge and turning it into a new skill or application. The retrograde period will also encourage intellectual reflection, through which original and innovative ideas are born during 17th until 20th August. If you experience irritating circumstances leading up to the 20th – don’t give up!
Mid-month sees new beginnings regarding your siblings, education or information around the New Moon in Leo on the 17th. Activities such as letter writing, blogging and generally contacting others are highlighted. Relationships with your siblings and/or neighbours will change on some level.
Family, Love and Relationships
Communication and education issues may cause you to think more than usual, which will help towards avoiding misunderstandings with family members. Things will improve after the 8th when Mercury turns direct. The same day Venus moves into Cancer from Gemini, your sign where it has resided for the past four months. Venus has been focusing you to re-evaluate your values (financial, emotional and spiritual) and how you identify yourself in love and relationships. Taking stock of your Venusian qualities and how you express these through communication is the key. In Cancer, these qualities shift to the themes of nurturance and protection and how you relate to others may take on a soft, sympathetic, romantic quality as your value system now focuses on home and family.
Relationships may become fraught between the 13th and 16th with regard to joint or shared income and possessions, leading to possible tensions and power struggles. The theme of ‘What is mine versus what is yours’ and in some cases ‘What is mine versus what is yours is also mine’ may come to the fore. If these issues crop up then the situation has the potential to become particularly difficult. Whatever the nature of the relationship, events could affect your private and/or public areas of life.
Business and Finance
At the end of the month the Full Moon in Pisces brings you much attention. With the spotlight on your professional or public image your best approach is to consider others and use your charm and grace. Some caution is required as you could feel particularly sensitive to those around you. If your thinking is unclear take time to formulate your thoughts before verbalising them. You may need to work on a project at the last minute, which signifies a conclusion of events during the past two weeks, so keep calm and show what you can do. An unexpected business opportunity may arise which could improve your home life in some way.
Health and Wellbeing
The First Full Moon on the 2nd August may reflect a crisis of faith, and your belief system could feel shaky as certain events may test you over the next two weeks. Too much attention to detail regarding your mundane affairs has neglected your fun side and now it is time for some adventure. Indulge and you will find your faith grows stronger than before.
