An Open Letter To Gemini For August 2021
How time flies. It seems like only yesterday I wrote last. Personally, I've been hiding away from coronavirus for so long that I've forgotten what my front door looks like from the outside. But not everyone's a dilapidated old-fogy like me. I bet some of my Gemini friends have been run off their feet. That's because Gemini are traditionally versatile individuals who often chose to chop and change occupations at the drop of a hat. The thought of a cradle to the grave occupation is anathema to most of you. Variety is the spice of life, and you try to live life to the full.
While this is more true of some than others, I have a gut feeling that many of my Gemini readers are in occupations recognized to be essential to the maintenance of normal life as we used to live it. (When you come to think about it, an occupation like taxi driving is the almost quintessential Gemini job). And how many more work in occupations that require an intense preoccupation to small but vital details: like hospital staff; in call centres; teaching in schools; powering the service industries; the media; the supply-chain and innumerable other occupations that keep the wheels of commerce turning. Essential workers are the backbone of an advanced society, but do your salaries reflect that fact? Are you paid what you are really worth? I sincerely doubt it!
But I digress and must return to the topic in hand. Gemini are mentally active and extremely curious. Despite government restrictions, you have maintained your activity levels and exploited every conceivable opportunity to keep the wheels turning, even at great personal risk to your own safety and welfare. I bet it has been hard to put on a brave face and do what you've had to do. But you have bitten the bullet and got on with the job in hand. I applaud your courage. Happily, those supposedly “in the know” promise the rest of us that things are going to get better, providing we do our bit to maintain public safety. That's reassuring and has no doubt given you a little hope that things will slowly return to normal. With that cheerful thought in mind, let's turn our attention to your future.
I suspect that many Gemini born are considering initiating some currently secret plan, as indicated by the activity of Uranus and the Moon in that part of your horoscope related to confidential and private matters. Be careful who you trust with information because someone in whom you currently have faith might betray you. Something is brewing related to personal finances and the quality of your personal feelings concerning a relationship. All the above factors embrace an individual from a different social/economic background, or, cultural/religious/political belief system. Perhaps that offers you a little food for thought. But don't overreact. What I'm trying to say is this: don't get wrong-footed or caught out by doing or saying something well-meant but open to manipulation and misrepresentation. Some people have just got to think the worst of others, or, never miss an opportunity to make a little mischief for their own amusement. Consequently, ensure you don't present them with some ammunition to fire back at you. Just think twice before you let of steam, especially if you are feeling a little stressed, tired or angry.
Interestingly, sexual intrigues and infectious gossip are a feature of the week ahead. For example, while you are out and about on the town with your friends or working alone, you may accidentally stumble upon something of profound interest. And you know how it is with Gemini: once aroused, your curiosity will impel you to investigate. As a result, you may discover a friend's big secret. But stop to think before you become too involved. Perhaps you are walking blindfold into a mine-field laid to trap someone else. Is it wise to proceed? Are you best just keeping silent? You know what they say about sleeping dogs!
Changing tack again. Some new project might get off to a good start, however, progress will begin to slow. This factor will test your patience, but if you can adopt a laid back attitude and endeavour to view your progress from an objective and philosophical perspective, it will assist you in making the appropriate decisions in due course. In addition, this is potentially an excellent week to do things which help you make new friends and widen your circle of contacts.
Interestingly, someone with an authoritative manner or rather stern appearance might attract your attention. You are intrigued by their “back-story” and want to spend more time in their company. In fact, the more time you spend with them, the more their influence will grow upon you. This will encourage some of your colleagues to utter a few words of censure, or, warn you away from them altogether. Yes, it's up to you to decide what to do. After all, you are an adult and can make your own mind up over an issue like this. However, don't leap into the unknown and do something daft which you might later regret. Just be on your guard, that's all I'm saying.
The stars might link some Gemini born to a Taurus and a Capricorn. However, this is a Capricorn with a secret. Are they a private eye; a spy or a mystery customer, engaged by your employer to conduct some under-cover surveillance? Only time will tell. Changing tack to long distance communications and perhaps even “distant learning”. Things are hit-and-miss. That's to say, most things go your way and encourage you to feel optimistic and buoyant, but then something happens to throw a spanner in the works. For example: if you work from home, you might lose your internet connection; misplace your phone or forget your password. Not serious enough to make you lose sleep, but enough to make you angry and difficult to live with. Try to keep your cool in the face of repetitive, annoying events.
There again, it could be the younger generation who seem hell-bent on testing your patience. Some of you may have to cope with the temper tantrums of petulant children. Perhaps even more exasperating, some Gemini may find themselves confined indoors during working hours with a grown adult who invariably behaves like a petulant child. And there isn't much you can do about it if it's your boss. But there is a way out: relieve the pressure by laughing about it with a friend, or, have a walk in the park and feed the ducks on your day off. We all have shitty weeks at work. Therefore, try to view these transient irritants in their true perspective and keep your temper because you will triumph in the end; have no fear!
A potentially brilliant week characterized by inspirational ideas and actions which address many of the challenges which currently occupy your mind. Venus, the Lesser Benific, plays her part in attracting love, laughter, and happiness into your life. Single Gemini are well-placed to find an antidote to the isolation which has for so long denied them a sense of contentment. You feel more at easy with yourself and confident about your direction of travel.
Well folks, that's about me done for this letter. What more can I say than to wish you every happiness and success. As always, “God Bless and Protect”. I'll be thinking of you until I write again.
