With the stars in total tumult this month, it's essential to get your bearings ahead of time, Gemini. August is as intense AF – and then some. With two powerful eclipses and your ruler Mercury going into retrograde, it may be the most memorable month of 2017. So even though the first eclipse doesn't officially arrive until the 7th, prep in advance. This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse brings necessary change to your house of philosophy, travel, and big ideas. In other words, your worldview is changing, and the process probably started about six months ago. Breathe deep and consider how you feel about the intersection of the personal and political, because it really matters to you now – and it can take you places (literally). Mercury goes retrograde in your home zone on the 12th, so expect messiness on the domestic scene. This can translate to sudden rows with your live-in partner or family, or just your flat-mates. Just as easily it might be about redecorating, renovation or moving (try not to schedule any big changes until September, if possible). Whatever is going on, focus on going back and fixing anything that hasn't been working at home. By the 21st the next eclipse arrives, and this one is MAJOR. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Leo also asks you to look back and reflect upon something that began last winter, but at the same time, this cosmic event is all about your future. Look ahead to the next six months, Ms. Twin. Something about your public relations strategy – the way that you communicate with the world – is transforming for the better.

Ready for the good stuff, Gemini? The cosmos know it: you've been waiting long enough. Venus is moving into your own stars on the 4th, so love, beauty, romance and cold, hard cash are coming your way. Because the Sun and Mars are already in your financial zone, this is one of the best times of the year for you to boost your income exponentially. But there's a major caveat – you might not be able to stop yourself from spending it all in one place. Do your best to curb your appetite for luxe items that you don't particularly need unless you're sure you can truly afford them. On the other hand, salon and spa treatments are highly recommended as Venus enhances all beautification rituals. The Full Moon arrives early on the morning of the 9th, and it's so super sexy you might not even know how to handle the energy properly. If you're in a relationship and getting your needs met, this can only enhance intimacy. But if you're with someone and the sex is boring (or non-existent) this is your moment to tell your partner what you really want. If you're single, well – this is the weekend to swipe right, Gemini. Starting on the 20th as Mars moves into Leo, the vibe instantly changes from moody and emotional to passionate and fiery. This only intensifies as the Sun moves into your communication zone on the 22nd and the New Moon lands in the same spot the very next day. Your mission: to express yourself clearly and beautifully for the next six months. Use the immense verbal and writing skills the stars gave you at birth – they're about to change your life.
