With emphasis this month on love, romance and relationships, affairs of the heart will likely receive the most focus. Your attitudes toward emotional and physical connections are shifting, and it's by taking steps you've been reluctant to take previously that will allow you to form and strengthen connections. However, it will also become clear that certain ties to your romantic or relationship past need to be severed if you're to make progress during coming weeks. Use the feel-good factor on offer this month to take a step toward achieving a long-held ambition.
Uncertainty you might have felt recently where career progress is concerned looks set to be replaced by a major confidence boost around the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 7th.

If you're determined to stay put, then you can expect one surprising and pleasing domestic development around the 21st.
For many Geminis, a long, drawn-out legal saga or battle comes to a close this month.

At the end of August, it becomes clear how strong one idea or proposal is. Seize the chance to make it happen!

Coming weeks bring domestic disruption and something connected with your home or family comes to a head around the 7th.

As the month progresses, something starts to shift delightfully on the career front. A long-awaited job change is on the cards – and with you having more professional freedom and control than you've had before.
You could be called upon to provide levels of support to a family member over and above what you're used to providing, so be as flexible and accommodating as possible.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 21st could be pivotal in you instigating a plan that involves studying, travel, publishing or broadcasting. Take your pick!

The coming month brings clarity in more than one area, and changes you need to apply to certain methodologies could become clear.
