Your August Horoscope for Gemini
Virgo is an earth sign, and Virgos always look for how they can use information. Earth signs are practical. Geminis loves to consume information. You gather it up, and you are a master at writing, speaking, doing research, advertising, promoting, selling, and translating effectively. Geminis are also great negotiators (along with Libras, another air sign). Communication is your talent. You also love to analyze facts and debate them.
Virgo says, what good is information if you can’t use it? Virgo, the sign you share your ruler Mercury with, always finds a way to use what they read and learn. Gemini doesn’t quite understand why it is so important to Virgo to put the information to work immediately. Geminis feel being in the know is so enjoyable! They love to hear things first so that they can help spread the news, yet Geminis usually find a use for what they learn also, eventually. Think of Gemini’s brain as a repository of facts, like a cupboard holding lots of food, to use when they need it. Both signs are intellectual, and Virgos make especially fine editors, in addition to having other communication skills.
Anyway, I digressed. Mercury is your ruler and will be the most important planet to the new moon in Virgo on August 27 at 4 degrees. Uranus will be at a hard angle to the Sun and new moon, so it would not be a good time to travel and certainly not a good time to close on a house or sign a lease—do that much earlier in the month or later, in early October. The Sun and new moon are in your fourth house of home and under siege from Uranus. If you do have to sign those papers, first give them to your lawyer—this is not the time to skip this step! Make sure you won’t have to make costly repairs on the new space because the seller or renter never told you about those pesky problems. Alternatively, Uranus could bring news about a family member that surprises you, and you will need to drop everything and help. Keep your schedule light.
