Gemini August

Gemini, of all the zodiac signs, your love and sex life has been the ultimate comedy and drama all at once, and that’s because Venus, the Planet of Love, had been in your sign for a longer period than usual this year (from April to early August 2020). This month is its second full month direct after several weeks retrograde, so you may find that you’re getting your sexual groove back and that people you’re crushing on / in love with are reciprocating the energy. Venus’ shift into Cancer is helping you solidify your sexual and emotional desires and be less wishy-washy as a lover or partner. But since we’re still in retrograde season, make sure you’re seeing things for what they are, and not what you hope they could be. Make sure your twins aren’t in denial if certain romances or situationships have come to an end or are evolving into something entirely new. Don’t lie to yourself, my love. And try not to lie to others, too.

Transparency and honesty naturally will boost the intimacy in your sexual connections, but it will take practice before you get the hang of it. Instead of trying to pour your deepest emotions out all at once, how about you practice being more transparent and specific about how you’d like people to f*ck you, Gemini. As the sign of communication, you have a way with words (and with your tongue) that leaves people begging for more oral connections with you. You may connect with someone around the 15th, once Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, goes retrograde in Taurus and activates your sector of spirituality and healing. Single Gems may find that they’ve met or reconnected with someone who fully gets them, and it’ll feel super trippy. Even just having eye sex will feel out-of-this-world. Sexts too.

Sex with someone who gets you intellectually and spiritually hits different, and Leo Season is here to show you that you can have it all — you don’t have to pretend to only want light-hearted connections if in reality you want the types of unions that leave you drenched in sweat, with your entire body sore from the three sex sessions you had in a row, and the blended orgasms you gave each other. Yes, you may be uncomfortable at the fact that your feelings for someone are deepening, but that’s part of the heart-opening energy of Mars, the Planet of Action, currently being placed in Aries until January 2021, activating your sector of social networks. The people you’re meant to connect with will become evident — they’ll be right in front of your eyes. People you previously took for granted will suddenly seem ultra attractive, and you’ll realize that your fear of commitment may have limited your own sexual expansiveness. Stop running away from people who make you feel good, Gemini…

Chiron, the asteroid that represents our inner wounds, is retrograde in Aries until year’s end, and this helps you voice some of your sexual concerns if you’re already in a relationship. Not having sex as frequently as you’d like? Let your lover know — let them know your needs. The same goes if you’ve been having sex but haven’t really been feeling it  — the Aquarius Full Moon at the beginning of the month has taught you the powers of emotional detachment. Express what you want and release the need to control the outcome. If you’re craving more from your sex life, let your bae(s) know and figure out if there’s a way you can spice up your sex life, through maybe watching an erotic film, creating your own, including more toys or dramatic elements, prolonging foreplay, teasing each other, or even taking a break from sex altogether in order to get to know each other in new ways. Take the initiative in and out of the bedroom this month, Gemini. Your partner(s) will be so turned on.

Virgo Season begins the 22nd, just days after a Leo New Moon activates your communication sector. It’s likely that your sex and love life will go through a major transformation this Leo and Virgo Season due to all the shadow work you’ve been doing during Cancer Season. Your more light-hearted side emerges as the month comes to an end, and this makes you more uninhibited in both old and new connections. People want you to show up as your most raw, vulnerable and authentic self — even if it’s not the typical self that you’ve shown them before. Role-play anyone? You’re down to transform yourself via costumes, mannerisms and sex styles. 

Mars in Aries is making you more aggressive in bed this month too, while your ruler Mercury’s presence in Leo this month is encouraging you to be selfish when expressing when/where/how/for how long you want it, and with whom. You tend to be very attentive to your parter’s needs in bed, but once Virgo Season and your sector of roots is activated, you’ll be tempted to be the one who’s mostly pleased. Let them give you oral and all sorts of massages first. Sit back, relax, and be treated like the royal being you are. Let the orgasms come, come and come some more.
