Calm seas, choppy water, smooth sailing, then a storm—that’s what October is going to be like for all signs of the zodiac as a series of bumpy aspects creates waves. For you, Gemini, most of the uncertainty will fall in the house of romance, so buckle up.
This should be a sweet time for love, now that lucky Jupiter has moved into your house of amour for the first time in over a decade. It joins the mighty Sun, which makes October an auspicious time for meeting someone new or cementing an existing relationship. And there are some really juicy days ahead, starting on the 1st with a new moon in your house of romance, fun, creativity and children.
This lunation opens up an important new phase, and the key to rocking it is to make sure that you’re sharing: your thoughts, your feelings, and various tasks and responsibilities around the house if you live together. Venus trines Neptune the same day, promising that the couple that works as a team will fare much better than those who don’t. This is not the time to be an enabler or martyr who is carrying all of the weight of the partnership. Nor is it the time to be selfish, silent, or a bully. If you want intimacy you’re going to have to get past relying on sex and juicy date nights.
If your partner (or you) has been in control of the union, there could be friction at new moon time. However, if you’ve been operating with equality things should go quite smoothly. Over the next few months all Geminis can enjoy a lot more quality time with their kids and their lover. Conception is also a good possibility, as new moons are known for bringing exciting new changes your way!
Now for the wonkier stuff. Some difficult days to watch out for are the 6th, when you could be idealizing a mate (or a potential one). The 7th is also uneasy as a tense Sun-Pluto square could bring about a battle of the wills. Keep your ego on a leash and don’t let someone else push you around in love (or business either for that matter). Negative emotions could bubble to the surface, so choose your words carefully. As it turns out chatty Mercury enters your romance sector on Friday, which should enable you to communicate with greater ease.
The 13th and the 15th can also be tense as intimacy issues arise, as well as trust. You may be questioning whether you and a partner are on the same page on the 20th. “Yikes!”, you might be thinking. “Are we going to break up?” No, not necessarily. There are also super days for love, such as the 4th, 14th and 26th (put a ring on it! cohabitate!), the 11th (getting lucky in love), and the 19th (off the charts sex). Charming Venus enters your commitment sector on the 18th, setting up a delicious three-week period in which singles could meet a keeper and existing romances can relight their spark.
Your focus will turn to domestic and work-related matters in the third week of the month as the Sun rolls into Scorpio, your sixth house of efficiency and streamlining. Enjoying a clean, organized home environment without mountains of laundry piling up and having plenty of food stocked in the larder will be come important.
Likewise, you’ll want the work flow at the office to become faster and less stressful. Helping things along is the movement of intelligent Mercury into the same part of the sky, a beneficial aspect for negotiating, writing proposals, pitching ideas, and hiring new staff. The 27th is a stellar day for progress when you could wow a boss or client. A second new moon takes place in October, this one on the 30th in the efficiency sector.
The full moon on the 16th could bring about a changing of the guard if you work in any kind of team environment, which includes not only the office but also charities, volunteer groups, industry associations or a sports team. Something that you’ve all been working on can come to a happy conclusion. This sector also governs friends, so you and your pals could plan a rager of a party, a girls-only trip to Vegas or a two-week trip abroad. There could be a little tension as your lover may not be thrilled about your friends or vice versa, but you should be able to get past this.
A super-sexy day is the 19th when lusty Mars meets up with charismatic Pluto. Romantic Venus enters your house of commitment the day before, so singles could meet someone who’s as interesting in bed as they are in other ways! Attached Geminis could experience a romantic renaissance with some seriously steamy boudoir action going on.
