Gemini Horoscope August 2021

Gemini August 2021

Your planet Mercury is moving quickly and is active throughout August. Up until the 11th, Mercury is in fire sign Leo and from the 11th to the 30th, Mercury is in earth sign Virgo, its other sign of rulership. This looks as if there’s a lot going on close to home.

Plus, Mercury makes a host of planetary aspects this month. For one reason or another, it seems as if you’re in the thick of action and what you have to say can influence other people. You could find that you’re exceptionally busy.

Home & Family Plans

During August, earth sign Virgo dominates so pay attention to what’s happening here. Action planet Mars is in Virgo throughout August, the planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.

This is in addition to your planet Mercury in Virgo from the 11th onwards. Virgo rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. It’s the star sign at the base of your horoscope, what roots you and helps you feel grounded.

Therefore, it’s wise to ask why this area of your life is so busy. You might be asking other people for support, helping out more than usual with family or have lots of plans for your home or the place you live or work.

This would be a good time to make lists to ensure nothing gets dropped or forgotten. Virgo is the star sign which represents order and structure, analysis and strategy. You can get a lot done now but it’s super busy.

This is also wise because Uranus, the planet of change is active this month. Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus and the most hidden sector of your horoscope on the 20th. You might be changing your mind and fast. Or, perhaps your mind’s full of great ideas and plans.

Lively activity from the 19th to the 22nd might see you returning your past in some way. Or, a twist of fate reunites you with your past.

Leo Season

Traditionally, August is Leo season when the Sun shines bright in its sign of rulership up until the 22nd. Your planet Mercury is here too until the 11th. This is your communication sector and it’s a month when you’re likely to be talking and writing a lot.

There’s a New Moon in Leo on the 8th and you may need to take the initiative on or preferably just after this date. If you find yourself clashing with other people in the first week of August or find that your plans are changing constantly, even more reason to make a decision and stick to it.

Leo rules your life close to home, your neighbourhood and local community. Siblings and neighbours fall under the Leo umbrella too. Therefore, get involved with what’s going on close to where you live. It’s a good time to make new friends and get to know the people you see every day.

If you’re a typical Gemini, you thrive on chat, gossip and interactions. Step out of your comfort zone, be kind to other people, smile at the people you meet and delve a little deeper.

It’s likely to be a good month if you’re a journalist or interviewer. You have the gift of the gab and the ability to find out more when you’re curious about people and life.

The Full Moon on the 22nd cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac. This is the same star sign combination as last month’s Full Moon on July 24th. It’s about education and travel for you, the bigger picture of life.

Plus, this Full Moon pulls in lucky Jupiter in Aquarius and your travel and study sector. You have to be super flexible now but if you really want to get away or go on a workshop, this Full Moon looks promising. Call in a favour and use your gift of the gab to good effect.

Loving Vibes

Love too is part of the planetary picture, especially once the planet of relating Venus enters your fellow air sign Libra on the 16th.

Libra is your romance sector and represents all the good things in life. Do whatever gives you pleasure, team up with people you love, your children, a new lover, your social circle.

Libra rules a lucky sector of your horoscope, when enjoyment and entertainment peak and your creative juices begin to flow. Be actively social during the second half of August, especially if you’re looking for love.

Jupiter Returns To Aquarius

Jupiter Aquarius


July 28, 2021 to December 29, 2021

Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and the best planet in astrology. The big planet represents opportunity, growth, expansion & freedom and is the planet of hope, trust & faith.

Jupiter’s linked to global connections, education, the law, religion and is where you find meaning and purpose in your life. Wherever you find Jupiter in your horoscope, this is where you’re encouraged to embrace life to the full.

This week, Jupiter is on the move as it retreats back into Aquarius where it was previously from December 19, 2020 to May 13, 2021.

Jupiter is currently retrograde and will return to 22 Aquarius where it turns direct on October 18th. Jupiter then retraces its steps through Aquarius and re-enters Pisces on December 29, 2021.

On a personal level, this is great news if you have planets/angles between 22 – 29 Aquarius as you have two more bites of the Jupiter cherry.  This would be a good time to resurrect an opportunity or idea that emerged in the first five months of 2021 and run with it.

Jupiter Transits

Jupiter’s unusually lively as it returns to Aquarius. On July 29th, the day after Jupiter retrogrades back into Aquarius, Mars at 29 Leo is opposite Jupiter at 29 Aquarius.

Jupiter’s coming back with some power – Mars-Jupiter oppositions are overblown, energetic & enthusiastic. 29 Leo is an important point in astrology as it’s the fixed star Regulus, the royal star.

29 degrees is being emphasised in the zodiac due to Jupiter’s opposition. Next month’s Full Moon on August 22nd falls at 29 degrees Leo/Aquarius, highlighting the exact same axis of the zodiac.

Jupiter is linked in to this Full Moon, because two days earlier on August 20th, there’s a Sun-Jupiter opposition. This is when Jupiter is at its brightest in the night sky and it’s going to be a blazing light after sunset for the next few weeks – look to the east.

Mercury-Jupiter Interplay

Also, there’s a lovely interplay between Mercury and Jupiter that’s coming soon. Mercury is the messenger and Jupiter is a symbol of hope.

The two planets meet three times as Mercury turns retrograde in air sign Libra on September 27th. Here’s the pattern and note whether these degrees of the zodiac stand out for you:

  • Mercury 23 Libra trine Jupiter R 23 AquariusSeptember 20
  • Mercury R 23 Libra trine Jupiter R 23 AquariusOctober 4
  • Mercury 22 Libra trine Jupiter 22 Aquarius – November 1

Both planets turn direct on the same day – October 18th. This feels like an important time of omens, signs & coincidences. Listen carefully to what the universe is telling you.

Where Jupiter Promises Success

Here’s a quick guide to the areas of life that Jupiter will highlight over the next few months. Read both your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign.

Remember, it’s important not to sit back and wait for Jupiter’s gifts to come to you. When you know which area of your life Jupiter is highlighting, take advantage of the best planet.

Jupiter encourages risk-taking, envisioning, enthusiasm and positive vibes. The more you put in, the more you get back in return.
