17 August 2022
At the same time that a friendly aspect between the Sun, in his last full week in your communication sector and the dwarf planet Eris in your friendship sector peaks, another between Venus and Jupiter is building. In the heart of the week, this is creating positive conditions for talks, connecting and for personal and professional networking, though after having to confront some communication barriers over recent days. It is where there have been communication challenges that there is now a chance for a breakthrough.
Week beginning 15 August 2022
There is a lot of change and movement in the heavens and that includes shifts that have just happened, will happen this week or are preparing to happen next week. In the just happened category is Venus, whose departure from your income sector last Friday has ended all planetary activity on the income front for the year. However, not before leaving you with plenty of momentum and with forces on the job and career fronts holding onto the lucrative sense of direction this has left you with. Venus is now turning her attention onto giving your heart and your relationships a voice as she works with the Sun in his last and her first full week in your communication sector. The most game changing development will come on Saturday when Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos not only returns to Gemini to begin a new two year Mars cycle but his longest visit to your sign in eight decades. Normally here for just six weeks, Mars won't leave Gemini until March 2023.

Gemini Personality Traits
So, who is Gemini? One of Gemini’s greatest strengths is their intelligence and never-ending curiosity. Your Gemini friends and family will always be asking questions, thinking about how they can improve themselves and look for new possibilities and opportunities. In fact, Gemini's incessant curiosity can lead them to strike up conversations with just about anyone, making them great communicators who work well in group settings and team projects. Geminis don’t do well on their own, so they’re always making sure that no-one else is left out either! A true chameleon, Gemini individuals are brilliant at seamlessly blending into lots of different groups, situations and circumstances without stirring the pot. This makes them adepts at fitting in at new jobs, in new places or even when meeting new people.
Many Geminis report a sense of missing their astrological “twin”, so they are always on the lookout for new and deep connections with others. Geminis make great mentors, friends, colleagues and lovers for this reason, and they’ll always take the time to get to know you on a deeper level, if you’ll let them.
One of the personality traits that really sets Geminis apart from other signs is their duality. Represented by the Twins, there are two sides to every Gemini, and this is reflected in their ability to quickly adapt to the circumstances around them, as well as how they can quickly switch from fun and bubbly to serious and introspective. However, there’s always the stereotype of the “two-faced” Gemini, and this can be true if you aren’t careful!
What Are Gemini’s Weaknesses?
For all the great strengths of Gemini, like all of us, they have certain weaknesses too. Geminis can be indecisive and inconsistent as their two sides battle it out, which leads to their reputation as being two-faced. Their behaviour can also be seen as erratic or flakey to those who don’t know them and understand the way that they think in certain situations.
Gemini is a social butterfly, always knows what to say and thrives in a team environment, so it’s no wonder that they are very heavily affected by loneliness and isolation, even for smaller amounts of time. This extends to working alone too - without a team to bounce off and motivate them, Gemini can quickly lose steam, becoming less able to think creatively and procrastinating until things start to pile up!
While a great friend and colleague, Gemini can be hard to handle in romantic relationships! Their desire to see and do everything the world has to offer can make it difficult for them to settle down, though when they do, there’s no one as loyal! If you’ve been in a casual relationship where your partner was restless, impulsive or a bit too blunt, there’s a good chance they were a Gemini.
Gemini’s social side can also get the better of them when it comes to gossip! Gemini’s thirst for knowledge means that they are always looking for new angles on a situation to understand it as best they can, and the best way to do that is to speak to lots of different people! However, this slightly nosey nature does nothing to help Gemini’s reputation as a little two-faced!
Who is Gemini Compatible With?
Unlike lots of other star signs, Gemini isn’t restricted to certain elements or planets when it comes to compatibility, which is a reflection on their versatility and chameleon-like nature! Gemini will get on well with almost everyone, but in their close relationships, they tend to be most compatible with Sagittarius, Aries, Leo and Aquarius.
Gemini and Capricorn Compatibility: While they may actually seem pretty similar to outsiders, Gemini and Capricorn have very different motivations, which makes it hard for them to understand each other properly. Gemini might see Capricorn as too grounded or even boring, while Capricorn finds it hard to look past Gemini’s uncontrollable nature.
Gemini and Aquarius Compatibility: In a long-term partnership, Gemini needs someone who can excite and inspire them every day, and there’s potentially no better sign for this than dreamy Aquarius. Full of big ideas to discuss with their Gemini companion and with an implicit understanding of their need for independence, Aquarius makes a great fit for the twins.
Gemini and Pisces Compatibility: While they both mean well, Gemini and Pisces simply don’t have all that much in common! Gemini’s cerebral attitude and Pisces’ strong emotional compass don’t tend to gel that often to make deeper or more significant relationships.
Gemini and Aries Compatibility: Gemini and Aries are an exciting match, with fun and laughter well into the night! They challenge one another and help each other grow into the best versions of themselves. However, Aries will always be more attached while Gemini craves independence, which can lead to conflict.
Gemini and Taurus Compatibility: The stubborn, consistent bull of the zodiac doesn’t show much promise in a relationship with the always-moving, ever-changing Gemini. However, if you’re both willing to work for it, Taurus’ endurance and stability might be enough to bring these two together for a relationship that lasts a lifetime.
Gemini and Cancer Compatibility: While they make excellent friends and can always rely on one another, when it comes to romance, Gemini and Cancer are on different pages entirely! Not to mention, they both resent changing themselves for others, which is what they would need to do in a long-term romance.
Gemini and Leo Compatibility: Gemini and Leo value a lot of the same things in a partner - love, smiles, laughter and adventures! Leo will need to accept Gemini’s flightiness, while Gemini will have to understand Leo’s stubborn streak, but this can be a truly joyful relationship.
Gemini and Virgo Compatibility: Similar in lots of ways, Gemini and Virgo are both dreamy, intelligent and love to reinvent themselves every day. Together, they are a force of nature, though it will take a lot from both parties for them to make it work.
Gemini and Libra Compatibility: Gemini and Libra will need to work hard together to make their relationship work, but it will be worth it in the long-run. Together, they’ll have romantic relationships full of excitement, learning and positivity.
Gemini and Scorpio Compatibility: Scorpio and Gemini are just too different to have a strong relationship most of the time. In a romantic context, Scorpio is too serious and dour for Gemini, while Gemini is too immature and flighty for intense Scorpio.
Gemini and Sagittarius Compatibility: A rare match, and one that works perfectly. Sagittarius, unlike many other signs, understands Gemini’s need for adventure and shares their desire to try new things and see the world. It might take them a while to find each other, but together, these two are unstoppable!
Gemini and Gemini Compatibility: Lots of star signs prefer to steer clear from themselves, but Gemini is not that sign! If you’re looking for someone who understands your thirst for knowledge and need for independence, while providing the light-heartedness and adventure you crave, a fellow Gemini might just be the perfect match!

Who Should Gemini Marry?
There are a few things that Gemini should look for in a relationship, and most important is someone who understands that they need their independence no matter how much they love their partner! It doesn’t mean they’re not committed (in fact, once a Gemini finds the one, they’re some of the most loyal in the Zodiac!), but they’re so bright, inquisitive and curious that they need time to go off and have new experiences of their own.
Geminis are great communicators when they want to be, but can get in their head a little too much when things are rocky - they need someone who can talk them down without making them feel silly. Geminis are also very physically affectionate, so if you’re a Gemini, you should make sure when you settle down, it’s with someone who really appreciates and reciprocates this.
How To Attract A Gemini Man or Gemini Woman
Gemini men can be found at the heart of any gathering - they are the life and soul of the party! To attract a Gemini man you need to be able to hold a conversation with them, and willingness to listen to their more outlandish ideas is a must, as it’s important for Gemini to feel like they are being heard. Take him to a concert, film, play or event to kickstart some insightful, witty and flirty banter and you’ll never be bored with Gemini on your arm! Geminis also show their love through their actions, not their words and are very physically affectionate, so don’t be surprised if he’s much more of a cuddler than you first expected! He’ll be very attracted to a woman who can keep up with him in conversation but isn’t afraid to let her body and her actions speak for her too.
Gemini women, like their male counterparts, are talkative, witty, intellectual and confident, and she is looking for a man who is smart and strong enough to keep up with her. However, her dual nature is more likely to rear its head (or heads!) in a romantic relationship. She might seem warm and excitable one day, and cold or distant the next - this is just her way of protecting herself, so she needs someone patient, empathetic and understanding. A Gemini woman will be attracted to someone who is confident and accomplished on their own, as well as when he is by her side. A date where you can feel confident enough to show off a little will certainly get the sparks flying! Don’t take her anywhere too loud to have a good conversation though, as the Gemini woman loves to exchange ideas and dreams with her lover, as long as you’re willing to listen too.
