As a Gemini, everyone expects that—once and a while—you’ll have a full-blown Twitter meltdown. But honestly... you’ve been getting a bit carried away. Thankfully, a Full Moon in Aquarius (a like-minded air sign) on August 3 helps you focus on all that electric energy. Under this sky, the Moon (symbolizing your internal truth) and Sun (representing your external realities) will meet on opposite sides of the cosmos, helping to create a bridge between what you believe and what you know. Simply put, Gemini babe, there have been a whole lot of rumors floating around and now, during this location, you’ll finally have the motivation (and the receipts tbh) to tell your side of the story. So, if you've been trying to figure out how to navigate a complicated misunderstanding, you’ll finally feel equipped during August’s generous Full Moon—and that’s a very fabulous thing.

A few weeks later, on August 18, the Moon will join the Sun again, only this time, the celestial bodies will be linked hand-and-hand. (Does this visualize remind you of anything…say, for instance…TWINS?! Yes, Gemini! Duos! We love to see it!) The night sky will be completely dark (there’s no nocturnal illumination under the New Moon), but you’ll be radiating a powerful, magnetic aura. You’ll be seeking new ways to energize your insatiable curiosity, but thankfully, your social sensibilities pair perfectly with this lunation’s playful spirit. So go ahead, Gemini love: Fill your calendar with lots of Zoom dates, socially distant picnics, and COVID-safe mini-vacations. Yes, it’s still 2020… but that doesn’t mean you need to be bored! Even when your options have become a bit more limited, your ingenuity is truly expansive.

Did you know that you’re governed by Mercury, the swift-moving celestial body associated with communication? Of course you did, Gemini! You are the ultimate chatterbox! Suffice it to say, expression plays a huge role in your life: You’re always looking for a new way you can talk or text. But while you excel in generating output (so. much. content.), it’s not always easy for you to listen. Thankfully, Mercury is also associated with another sign: Virgo. So, when the Sun pivots into Virgo on August 22, you’re presented with a brand-new opportunity to practice the fine art of input. Yes, Gemini love, this is an excellent time to cultivate new opinions through thoughtful listening. Consider enrolling in an online workshop, cracking open a book, or simply holding space for a dialogue that you’re not moderating. It’s important to remember that even the most knowledgeable Gemini can always expand their perspective. There’s so much happening in the world right now—observation is absolutely essential!
