Decan 1 Gemini August 2016

The friendly conditions of last month give way to irritation and frustration with a Mars testing you patience in August 2016. The exceptions to this unsociable influence are at the very beginning and very end of the month.

Sun sextile your decan from July 21 to August 2 gives power of personal expression which helps in self promotion and the achievement of goals. You should be feeling confident and enthusiastic. This is an excellent time to make real progress with the things in life that mean a lot to you, work, relationships and longer term goals.

The August 2 new moon is the final new moon before the September 1 solar eclipse. This is a good time to start tidying up loose ends in preparation for the beginning of a new eclipse cycle. The new moon puts a focus on your personal and professional goals and remains active for 28 days.

Mercury square your decan from July 30 to August 7 can bring negative thoughts and harsh words. It is important to remember that you will be seeing the worst in everything and everyone. Poor instincts and a lack of judgement means you will be misreading people and situations. Important meetings, negotiations and decisions should be scheduled before or after this transit. Seek professional advice if you need to sign a contract.

Mars opposite your decan from August 1 to 26 presents a challenge you have to overcome in order to achieve a certain goal or simply to be yourself. Anger and frustration are likely as other people stand in your way or directly oppose your will. This is a difficult time to fully achieve what you want so you must choose your battles carefully. Unless your objectives are noble and not threatening to others, a tactical retreat may serve you best.

Venus square your decan from August 5 to 14 will increase your need for love and affection but any underlying relationship tension may rise to the surface. This is especially true if you expect too much without first showing you care. Getting motivated for work may prove challenging because you would rather be lazing around enjoying yourself. Avoid overspending and overindulging with food or drink. Partying is fine now so long as you act with moderation.

Venus square Mars from August 5 to 8 can cause relationship difficulties if there is already some underlying sexual or competitive tension. In a healthy relationship where both partners have equally strong egos, you can enjoy more exhilarating sexual activity. If single, then the increased sexual desire will be matched by a more attractive aura. Affairs are now more likely but not necessarily of a lasting nature.

Sun square your decan from August 22 to September 2 can represent a crisis in confidence because of challenges from events or from other people, most often from men or bosses, and teachers etc. Your ego is on the line, coming under pressure from others through arguments or challenges to your authority. This is not the time to push ahead but to hold onto what you have. A defensive approach is the best one now.

Venus trine your decan from August 29 to September 7 should have you feeling and looking your best. This is a time of low stress when life flows smoothly with few cares or worries. Your loving attitude means that people respond with kindness and affection. Your calming influence earns admiration and popularity. Increased personal beauty makes this a great time for dating or spending quality time with a loved one. Shopping is favored and money matters should go well.

Mercury retrograde from August 30 to September 22 does not directly affect your decan but is worth noting. Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. You can expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past.

Decan 2 Gemini August 2016

The last couple of weeks gave you the chance to mend relationships that have been damaged by the fear and prejudice of Saturn square Neptune. The first week or so of August 2016 lets you catch up on your duties and responsibility. Get ahead while the Sun shines as more more frustrating conditions return in the second week of the month.

Neptune square your decan from May to August 2016 tends to eat away at, or dissolve your sense of self which can be seen as a weakening of your ego. Neptune tends to creep up on you, so this is a gradual process but at some stage you will realize that you may not have a much drive or energy as you did a year or so ago.

Saturn opposite your decan this year can be a draining time because you are more likely to feel weighed down and pessimistic about the challenges and blockages to your progress. These tests which we all go through seem more serious and more numerous during this transit, and are likely make you feel more burdened and restricted in your freedom or self-expression.

Saturn square Neptune from May 23 to September 30 climaxed on June 17. Disappointment or setbacks now are more likely to extend or deepen periods of grief or depression that we all experience from hardships. Even without hardship being placed upon you, it is likely that psychological fears or paranoia may overwhelm you leading to uncertainty. Either way, you may end up questioning whether you really can achieve those things you have hoped and dreamed for.

Sun sextile your decan from August 1 to 12 gives power of personal expression which helps in self promotion and the achievement of goals. You should be feeling confident and enthusiastic. This is an excellent time to make real progress with the things in life that mean a lot to you, work, relationships and longer term goals.

Sun trine Saturn from August 1 to 3 brings achievement and recognition for previous effort. You are focused on achieving your long-term goals but are also well-balanced. This means that other areas of your life do not need to suffer from your strong work ethic and determination. Relationships with men and superiors will be serious and practical but beneficial. You may take on more responsibility but without the added stress or receive a promotion at work.

The August 2 new moon is the final new moon before the September 1 solar eclipse. This is a good time to start tidying up loose ends in preparation for the beginning of a new eclipse cycle. The new moon puts a focus on your personal and professional goals and remains active for 28 days.

Mercury square your decan from August 5 to 15 can bring negative thoughts and harsh words. It is important to remember that you will be seeing the worst in everything and everyone. Poor instincts and a lack of judgement means you will be misreading people and situations. Important meetings, negotiations and decisions should be scheduled before or after this transit. Seek professional advice if you need to sign a contract.

Mercury square Saturn from August 5 to 7 favors hard mental work, probably better done on your own. Communicating your plans and ideas will be difficult because of negative thinking and misunderstandings. It would be wiser to avoid important negotiations, and seek trusted, professional advice if involved in contracts, business or legal matters. There may be some distance or separation in close relationships. This, together with gloomy thoughts, bad news or loneliness, can have a negative effect on your mental well-being.

Mercury opposite Neptune from August 6 to 8 brings mental confusion and the potential for relationship problems due to miscommunication. Your perception of reality is clouded due to an inability to filter out the background noise or useless information. This is a bad time for making important decisions, making plans or doing any detailed mental work. Business deals should be avoided and put off signing contracts if you can. If dating, you are more susceptible to being taken advantage or deceived in some way.

Venus square your decan from August 12 to 22 will increase your need for love and affection but any underlying relationship tension may rise to the surface. This is especially true if you expect too much without first showing you care. Getting motivated for work may prove challenging because you would rather be lazing around enjoying yourself. Avoid overspending and overindulging with food or drink. Partying is fine now so long as you act with moderation.

Venus square Saturn from August 12 to 14 can add stress to intimate relationships due to negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others. Basically, you are not so fun to be around for this day or so. It is common under this influence to feel lonely and depressed, totally normal for human life. Money can also be tight with this transit so avoid a tendency toward wasting money and other resources.

Venus opposite Neptune from August 13 to 15 has the potential to cause problems with relationships and finances. You are more likely under this confusing and deceptive influence to fall victim to predators who seek to take advantage of your caring and accepting nature. People may see your niceness as a weakness, appearing more loving or generous than they really are. Over idealization or gullibility can lead to embarrassment or disappointment in love, or financial losses that would all have a detrimental effect on your self-esteem.

Mars opposite your decan from August 23 to September 12 presents a challenge you have to overcome in order to achieve a certain goal or simply to be yourself. Anger and frustration are likely as other people stand in your way or directly oppose your will. This is a difficult time to fully achieve what you want so you must choose your battles carefully. Unless your objectives are noble and not threatening to others, a tactical retreat may serve you best.

Mars conjunct Saturn from August 21 to 26 can ignite your darkest desires and make you feel angry, resentful or revengeful. Ignorance or laziness can lead to frustration and difficult situations. Going with the flow and not taking the initiative will allow frustration to build to a dangerous level. This destructive energy could then manifest as risky actions due to impatience. This is not the right time to go to war as there is danger when taking risks. Stay at home and sharpen your knives, work hard with patience and forethought.

Mars square Neptune from August 24 to 28 brings low energy, suspicion, deceit, lies and scandal. The test or challenge of the square may come from within or through interactions with others. It is normal to feel weak and discouraged under this influence. Guilt is also possible and you may recall hurting someone in the past. It is important not to let such negative feelings lead to self defeat or even self harm. You are low on energy and recuperative powers so it is critical that you confront things and then move on.

Mercury retrograde from August 30 to September 22 means you will have a second take of Mercury square your decan in the last two weeks of September 2016. Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. You can expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past.

Decan 3 Gemini August 2016

Pleasant surprises with love and money await you at the beginning of August 2016. Positive conditions remain until the final week of the month but then you must be more discerning about the opportunities that lay ahead.

Uranus sextile your decan from April 2016 to March 2019 lets you express yourself more fully, more in tune with who you really are. This will be liberating and you may be pleasantly surprised by how your ego gets a lift from a new and unique personality. Gaining more freedom is likely and air travel would be a good way to experience more of the world. Meeting new and unusual people is another theme of this transit as is more involvement with friends and groups.

Venus sextile your decan from July 28 to August 6 increases your opportunities with love and money. You should be feeling keen to show your love and affection for someone special. In social situations you can make a genuine effort to please and to share you warm feelings. You have especially good social skills now so making new friends is favored as people appreciate your friendly attitude and pleasantness. Entertainment, leisure, dating and financial matters are favored.

Venus trine Uranus from July 30 to August 3 gives an urge to try something new that can apply to all areas of life, from hobbies to romance. Your affections will be stimulated and new love is quite possible under this influence. If you already have a partner you will be seeking a different kind of pleasure. Experimentation in the bedroom may be necessary to keep your eyes from wandering. If single, your odds of finding someone new is increased and you should at least find excitement when socializing.

Jupiter square your decan from late July to mid September 2016 brings hope and optimism and that urge to expand your horizons. Jupiter tends to exaggerate and this will apply to your confidence and ego. You can get lucky and popular now, and it’s OK to be proud of your achievements, but being too vain or expecting too much of others may cause relationship problems.

Sun sextile your decan from August 11 to 23 gives power of personal expression which helps in self promotion and the achievement of goals. You should be feeling confident and enthusiastic. This is an excellent time to make real progress with the things in life that mean a lot to you, work, relationships and longer term goals.

Sun trine Uranus from August 15 to 18 is an exciting time when increased intuition and flashes of insight lead to self-discovery and revelations. These insights combine with increased self-confidence, to allow you to express the more unique or quirky side of your personality. You will feel like trying sometime new, outside of your normal routine. This could range from new adventures to new inventions. An excellent time to leave your comfort zone and widen your social circle with some extra ordinary people.

The August 18 lunar eclipse is very positive and exciting for a change. New discoveries and relationships will send you on a special mission to find plans for a brighter future. The lunar eclipse will not produce any shadow over the moon so is going to act more like a normal full moon lasting 14 days until the September 1 solar eclipse.

Mercury square your decan from August 14 to September 14 can bring negative thoughts and harsh words. It is important to remember that you will be seeing the worst in everything and everyone. Poor instincts and a lack of judgement means you will be misreading people and situations. Important meetings, negotiations and decisions should be scheduled before or after this transit. Seek professional advice if you need to sign a contract.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter from August 20 to 25 exacerbates the challenging nature of your Mercury and Jupiter transits. Business deals can still go ahead so long as you remember to look at the fine print. You can see the bigger picture but may need assistance to check the smaller details. Keeping this in mind you can sign contracts with advise from a professional. A tendency toward extravagance, greed and gluttony needs to be watched and any addictions could get out of control on these days.

Venus square your decan from August 21 to 30 will increase your need for love and affection but any underlying relationship tension may rise to the surface. This is especially true if you expect too much without first showing you care. Getting motivated for work may prove challenging because you would rather be lazing around enjoying yourself. Avoid overspending and overindulging with food or drink. Partying is fine now so long as you act with moderation.

Venus conjunct Jupiter from August 26 to 29 brings good luck in love and money with a few catches. You will want to indulge in pleasure and luxury which is fine so long as you have already attended to your responsibilities. When the fun starts it is important to remain thankful and respectful. Maintain a high moral standard and don’t get greedy little piggy. Selfishness, gluttony and extravagance will spoil your good fortune. Moderation and some self discipline are the key to increasing your wealth or finding new love.

Mercury conjunct Venus from August 27 to 30 will be the most hectic time of the month with a strong focus on your love life and socializing. Unfortunately you will probably feel too stressed or worn out to enjoy yourself. Simple little communication errors or annoyances can get blown out of all proportion and take up more of your precious time. The less you take on the better you will cope so do only your share and no more.

Mercury retrograde from August 30 to September 22 is the reason Mercury square your decan lasts so long. Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. You can expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter from August 30 to September 4 exacerbates the challenging nature of your Mercury and Jupiter transits. Business deals can still go ahead so long as you remember to look at the fine print. You can see the bigger picture but may need assistance to check the smaller details. Keeping this in mind you can sign contracts with advise from a professional. A tendency toward extravagance, greed and gluttony needs to be watched and any addictions could get out of control on these days.
