Today’s easygoing trine between the moon and Venus can make you quite the charmer. Compliments will open doors, so if you see something, say something. But use your gift of gab for more than mere flattery. Suggest creative ways to partner up and collaborate with people who share your savvy outlook and discerning taste. You could become songwriting partners with a new friend (hi, future hit single) or find clever ways to redistribute tasks with a coworker so that you can actually leave the office by 5 pm. You’ve got the golden touch on social media today, too. Post liberally to drum up interest for your latest cause or mission.
Grab the sage wand and the olive branch. Today the quarter moon in Taurus and your twelfth house of healing helps you clear the air and mitigate tension. You’ve been justifiably annoyed at someone in your circle, but is harping on the issue to anyone in earshot doing you any good? Hardly, Gemini. If anything, it just makes you feel more paranoid, especially if you’ve been borderline bashing the “offending party.” People make mistakes—and they can also be clueless about how their actions affect you. Stop taking it so personally! You’ll be able to hash it out, then hug it out, once you sit down for an authentic heart-to-heart.
Today’s flowy angle between witty Mercury and electrifying Uranus brings spark and sizzle to the most mundane interactions. Stay alert instead of zoning out in a tech trance. An intriguing new friend could be standing right behind you in the Starbucks line. But you could miss them while flipping through your Facebook feed or (ironically) scanning Tinder for swipe-able options. Organize a group hang tonight and keep the guest list open. Chemistry could bubble with a friend’s platonic plus one—for romance or a creative collaboration.
Keep a low profile early today, Gemini. Needy people are pulling on your heartstrings and could wind up wasting an important chunk of your time. It's okay to ignore your GF's stream of texts and Bitmojis and to let your mom go through to voicemail because YOU have business to take care of. Early this afternoon, the moon heads into Gemini for two and a half days, making it much easier to set boundaries and let people know when you only have ten minutes to talk. With this independent moon spurring you on, you may want to wander around by yourself after work, popping into boutiques to try on clothes, sampling the fare at a noodle counter (and chatting up strangers) and taking in a documentary or live lecture. Do you!
Your inner circle is a sanctuary, but for the next five months it can get a little too close for comfort. With unpredictable Uranus going retrograde (backward) in your group activity house until December 30, certain friends could become disruptive and dramatic. You could link up with an old colleague or collaborator who helps bring your innovative ideas to life. Choose your company wisely—and avoid the crazymakers at all costs. If you have an online business or an idea for an app, this is an excellent time for a redesign or to tweak your marketing and social media strategy.
Who runs the world? Women will be a source of strength and inspiration between Saturday and October 7 as messenger Mercury (your cosmic ruler) orbits through Virgo and your feminine fourth house. Secure those sisterly bonds by spending more time with the important women in your network—maybe by hosting a regular meetup at your place. Develop closer ties with female relatives by communicating more regularly or taking a family trip together. The interior decorating bug could zap you now. But be warned: Mercury will be retrograde from August 30 until September 22, so don’t bite off more than you can chew with those reno projects. Sunday’s moon in Cancer sets the stage for a decadent day of self-care. Before you race off on errands or sit down to sort through a stack of utility bills, do something nice for yourself. Get a spa pedicure or meet friends for a haute brunch (this ain’t no 24-hour diner day, Gemini). And while you’re taking care of business, set the mood with an upbeat Spotify playlist, taking little dance breaks as you check each task off the list.
