You’ve made it through the second of three Mercury Retrogrades, Gemini. You’re ruled by Mercury, so last month your sex and love life may have felt a bit all over the place. One second you were feeling wild sexual tension with someone you’re attracted to, and the next either you, them or both of you may have turned each other off and acted passive-aggressive with each other, causing you to feel sexually frustrated, lonely or misunderstood. There were times when you even hurt your own feelings by spending time imagining the worst-case scenario or assuming that someone’s no longer into you. Now that Mercury is direct this month, you’ll finally be ready to face some truths about your love and sex life that you previously ignored.
There is still a two-week post-shadow period of the retrograde, which means that not everything will immediately feel like it’s syncing in bed or in conversations. That’s okay though because you should use the first two weeks of August to get clear about what’s been working for you in bed, and what’s been lacking. The Leo New Moon on the 1st of August activates your sector of communication, which means that it’s one of the most powerful New Moons of the year for setting intentions about how to infuse more passion, fun and spontaneity in your sex life, and all your relationships in general. You may find yourself holding on to a relationship during the first two weeks of August, or trying your best to let go of one. Be kind to yourself, even if you have “slip-ups” such as having sex with an ex or falling into a familiar pattern that you thought you had outgrown. Relationships aren’t black and white, and if you find yourself seeking to have sex with someone, even if it doesn’t make practical sense, don’t overthink it. Believe it or not, sometimes your body and soul knows what it wants more than your mind. It’s okay to turn off all the racing thoughts in your mind and tune into your primal desires…
This is especially true because Mercury will transition back into Leo this month, helping you be more in-tune with your more passionate urges. People will notice a more fiery and irresistible aura about you, so get prepared to receive more attention from people near and far, especially once Jupiter goes direct in your partnership sector on August 11th! If you felt confused romantically or sexually every since April 2019, chalk it up to Jupiter Retrograde, which was testing your faith in yourself as a lover, as well as your own lover(s). Mixups, frustrations, and feelings of being disconnected may have surfaced during Jupiter Retrograde, but you pushed through it and accepted the lessons as spiritual tests. You are going through a major awakening due to Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, currently in your spirituality and healing sector until 2026. Jupiter going direct will be a breath of fresh air. You’ll notice yourself being lighter, more flirtatious, more jovial, and less likely to take yourself or others too seriously. This will lead to a massive increase in your sex drive and your sexual attraction.
Once Virgo Season begins on the 21st, your domesticity sector becomes activated, so if you’re in a friends-with-benefits situationship, you may find yourself seeking more stability in your sex and love life, but you may not immediately admit it to yourself or your lover(s). What are you afraid of? Truly speak the truth to yourself and others. Is it a fear of commitment? A fear of abandonment? A fear of being the one who cares the most (even if you give off the impression that you care the least)? Dare to examine your fears, so that they don’t become sexual or emotional blockages. This is a very powerful time to break free of limiting beliefs that have an effect on your sex life and the connections you cultivate. Use this heart-opening month to shake up your sex life — view orgasmic unions as your birthright.
Gemini is symbolized by the Twins and is ruled by Mercury, the Planet of Communication. This makes you one of the least predictable signs of the zodiac, and the king or queen of experimentation when it comes to sex. Easily bored, you absolutely hate routine in the bedroom. You’re the sign that’s always down to try something new, and you’re likely to get your partner(s) to be up for it too. You also aren’t one to be pinned down to just one sexual partner, unless that partner has what it takes to keep you interested for the long haul. For you, sex should be a constant adventure and roller-coaster ride. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and you want to be able to swim with them all. One of your lessons as a Gemini is to focus on quality rather than quantity though. Also learn how to let sensuality and vulnerability become infused within your sexuality, so that there’s more to it than just sleeping around. With time, your sexual partners do realize that as an Air Sign, you are a sapiosexual — you’re someone who’s attracted to people’s minds more than their physical bodies. This may surprise many people who have characterized you as a shallow and flakey sign. But in reality, you want to be able to not only have many rounds of sex, but also have plenty of discussions with your sexual partner(s) about all topics under the sun.
In fact, since talking is your area of expertise, you are known as being very verbose in the bedroom. When you’re turned on, you want to let your partner know, and you want them to vocalize what they’re feeling sexually too. If you’re with a fellow Air sign or Fire sign, that communicative nature may be compatible with their expressive nature. Earth and Water signs tend to want to just feel things in the moment and may need some time to adjust to your more expressive and wordy sexual tendencies. You really can’t help yourself though. Since you’re ruled by the Planet of Communication, you’re constantly asking yourself, “How am I doing? Do they enjoy this? What can I do to make them enjoy it even more? What are they thinking right now?” One of your evolutionary lessons as a sexual partner is to just be in the moment and shut off your constantly racing mind. It will take practice, but it’s definitely going to increase your sexual stamina because you’ll be able to focus on pleasing and being pleased.
As a Gemini, your idea of foreplay is sending your sexual conquest an impromptu sext letting them know they’re on your mind, and daring them to spontaneously meet you at the nearest location for a quickie. People never know what they’re going to get with you, and you keep them on their toes, so they view you as an elusive, charming, flirtatious and witty sexual partner. But they also feel like just as they’re starting to get to know you, you morph into someone new. Ruled by the Twins, you are known for being dual-natured, or honestly, infinitely natured. You change every day–every hour, really. So do your sexual needs. One moment you may be craving a long, drawn-out sexcapade, and the other you may want to simply masturbate by yourself and take care of your own needs without a partner in sight. You vacillate between introversion and extroversion, and people can never truly tell how into them you are until you finally spill the beans and don’t shy away from human connection.
Another plus of being ruled by Mercury is that you make incredible use of your lips. Geminis are known for being formidable kissers. Not only will you want to make-out with your sex partner(s) and leave them wanting more, but you give life-changing, orgasmic oral sex, and you often do so with a great amount of pleasure and generosity. There’s no oral like a Gemini’s oral. This is often your way to get your partners completely hooked and smitten by you. They’ll endlessly daydream about the times you went down on them and be left craving more. The same goes for your use of your hands, which is the body part you are ruled by. Fingering is your forte, as well as handjobs. You are a master at the art of touch, and you love being touched absolutely everywhere. You also love to surprise your partners with new sexual positions that you may reveal when they least expect it. For you, boredom is never an option, so you’re always game to try something completely out there that other signs may at first be too shy to engage in. Ultimately, Gemini, you are a very energizing and exciting sexual partner, although you can also be flighty and a bit all over the place when it comes to where you direct your sexual energy. When you do decide to commit to one person though, they will feel like they have ten sexual partners all in one, and as long as they’re down for the ride, you both can have the time of your lives exploring and fulfilling each others’ deepest fantasies.
