Your August Horoscope for Gemini
On August 14, Saturn will be in opposition to the Sun, possibly making a communications project that you will be finishing arduous. You will have to check the details at the last minute. After August 20, Mars in Gemini will urge you to go quickly, but Saturn will be blinking a cautious yellow light and slowing you down, warning you to give the work another look, and he will urge you to polish it until it gleams. Saturn is your friend—the project you finish will be better as a result.
The new moon in Virgo on August 27 could bring you in greater contact with your family, or you might be focused on your living quarters—a move to a new address, a decorating project, a renovation, or a series of repairs could keep you occupied in the coming weeks, well into September. Mercury will be the most important planet at this time. Fortunately, Mercury in Libra will be in an ideal angle to Mars in Gemini and Pluto in the late degrees of Capricorn, setting up a grand trine of great harmony.
At work, your creative ideas will be lauded and bring you income, and if you are trying to raise money, financial types will be interested in what you have to say. If you are trying to pay for changes in your living quarters or want to help a family member financially, with the new moon’s fine aspects, it looks like the money will appear, thanks to your reputation and admirable work ethic.
