Gemini ♊ August 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


On 4th April Venus, the planet of love but also the planet of money, desire and attraction returned to Gemini for what should have been a 24 day visit. Venus will normally return with the Sun, so will be here during your birthday month and it is her job to update your wish list for your new solar year and if she has time, help you to turn desires into reality. However, while your birthday month has since come and gone as we move into August Venus is still here, but in her final days. Before leaving on 8th August Venus is urging you to fight against complacency and to follow your heart.

While a retrograde phase has kept Venus in Gemini for just over four months, a retrograde phase has also kept Mercury in your income sector since the end of May. Normally spending just 14 to 15 days giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game, Mercury will finally leave on 5th August. However, while this will leave your income sector empty, the most potentially lucrative weeks of 2020 are not only still in front of you but right in front of you. Held back by her retrograde phase in Gemini, Venus will finally return to your income sector on 8th August, just three days after Mercury leaves.

With the groundwork done, Venus will simply put on her planet of money hat, trigger the laws of attraction and watch it all happen. Not leaving until early September and with the support of Neptune and Ceres in your career sector, Venus will be working to make August the most lucrative month of 2020. Meanwhile, Mercury is off to join the Sun in your communication sector, where as the planet of communication he will be right at home. Before leaving Gemini Venus will cross the lunar nodes and that will stress test a balance between your personal and relationship needs, but with the Sun and Mercury on hand to ensure the communication lines are open.

While there are technically no planets in either your romantic or relationship sector, in reality there is a lot going on, on both fronts and that will remain the case each month. While there are no planets in your romantic sector the asteroid Juno has been here since November and in her last full month is preparing to hand over to the Sun and Mercury, who will return next month. In addition, the month begins with Venus, the planet of love still in Gemini, with her epic four months journey now in its final days.

Venus returned to Gemini in early April for what should have been a 24 day visit aimed at updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for your new solar year. In that time the Sun came and went but a six week retrograde phase kept Venus here, at the same time that Juno’s own retrograde phase has kept her in your romantic sector. Venus will finally leave on 8th August, but not before doing everything she can to not just leave you with your romantic and relationship desires and expectations updated but with a good chance of turning desires into reality.

At the same time, while there is no planetary activity in your relationship sector the South Node is here and with the support of the Sun in your communication sector until 23rd August and of Mercury, the planet of communication here until 20th August, your relationships have a voice in every sense of the word. Both will be gone by the time the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 26th August to 28th August, making it important to ensure the communication lines are open before the Sun and Mercury leave. Meanwhile, the Moon’s return to your romantic sector from 21st August to 23rd August will conveniently create a romantically charged weekend.

While Mercury and Venus are both back in direct motion, you will benefit from both their retrograde phases and especially on the income front. This means that while the Sun, who will always spend the first three weeks of July in your income sector is gone, as he always will be by the time you move into August, you haven’t even begun to explore your full income potential. The immediate benefit is from Mercury, who returned at the end of May for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit but is still here, not leaving until 5th August. Until then, you still have access to his smart head for money.

However, what you are really waiting for is Venus, with the 24 days that the planet of money will spend in your income sector each year often the most lucrative. Held back by her retrograde phase in Gemini, Venus won’t return to your income sector until 8th August, her latest return since 2012. Venus turned direct at the end of June but is not yet up to full speed so won’t leave until 6th September, spending the rest of this month and the early days of next month here. Because the Sun and Mercury have already moved through, Venus will return to find everything set up and all she will need to do is trigger the laws of attraction.

The Moon will move through from 15th August to 17th August, giving Venus enough time to settle in before getting a better read on her influence. The Moon will sharpen your nose for money and can act as a trigger, so these could be some potentially lucrative days. Meanwhile, while Mercury will clash with all three planets in your financial sector before leaving on 5th August this won’t create the kind of financial tension the Sun’s final 10 days in your income sector created. Instead, this is more an incentive to use his smart head for money and also a reminder of a need for balance, as a financial review continues.

CareerGemini August 2020 Career Horoscope

While Neptune and Ceres, the only planets in either of your two professional houses are in retrograde motion, don’t assume that this will be a quiet or uneventful month professionally. With Mercury returning to your work sector later next month and then continuous planetary activity there until just before Christmas and the final months of the year destined to be the busiest, the pace this month is just right. Unlike your work sector, when the only point in the year when there is cosmic activity is when the faster moving planets move through, Neptune has been here since 2012.

The faster moving planets will always move through your career sector in the early months of each year but as Mars, who won’t return until 2022 made a visit this year, that busy phase extended further into the year than it normally would. Mars only left on 28th June, three days after Neptune turned retrograde. With the dwarf planet Ceres still in direct motion as you moved into July, it wasn’t until she turned retrograde as well that there was a chance to put the brakes on. While this is Neptune’s second full month in retrograde motion and Ceres’ first, last and only full month, there wasn’t the gradual slowdown that you normally experience.

You have reached that point this month and this is giving Neptune and Ceres a chance to spend a rare month in retrograde motion here together. Neptune is the planet of dreams and Ceres is the planet whose focus is on our needs and priorities and they are spending the month back at the drawing board, revisiting your professional dreams, needs and priorities. However, this doesn’t mean no activity for when Venus, the planet of money returns to your income sector on 8th August to begin what could be the most lucrative four weeks of 2020, she will be drawing on their support. Meanwhile, the Moon will bring a chance for a deeper dive into career matters from 5th August to 8th August and into work and job matters from 23rd August to 26th August.
