Gemini (21 May – 20 June)
For the first half of October, your ruling planet, Mercury, is in your fellow air sign Libra, up until the 17th. In your horoscope, Libra rules all the good things in life, such as romance and love affairs, children and pregnancy, creativity, entertainment and luck.
So make the most of this positive vibe moving forwards and line up some fun activities for the month ahead. The Sun is also in Libra for most of October until the 23rd and both the Full Moon and New Moon highlight this same sector of your chart.
The Full Moon takes place on the 5th and cuts across the Aries-Libra axis of the zodiac. This is a social axis for you as it represents friends, groups, networks and connections. So if you’re looking for love, this is a good date to jump to it and it’s an excellent time to widen your social circle.
Yet any of the personal planets in Libra don’t have a smooth run through the zodiac this month, because on the way they encounter the outer planets, Uranus and Pluto. Mercury clashes with Pluto on the 9th and this is a date to be careful when it comes to money and financial ties.
Keep your money in your pocket rather than speculate wildly or spend impulsively. Don’t expect other people to dig deep for you financially either close to this date. Any financial transactions could come with strings attached.
Uranus is in action on the 15th and 19th and Uranus is the planet of unpredictability and the unexpected. It can bring with it excitement and adventure, but more often than not, your plans change suddenly or other people let you down.
So keep your schedule flexible during this period and double check all your arrangements. If you’re a parent or in a new love relationship, keep close tabs on a child or your lover. Life is rarely stable and steady when Uranus is in town.
The New Moon in Libra takes place on the 19th but with Uranus in tow. So it’s a great date for new beginnings and making a fresh start with someone. Yet there’s a lively feel to love so keep your wits about you and decide whether you want a long-term relationship or a short-term fling. With Uranus in the picture, new relationships rarely last for long.
Two more planets enter Libra later in the month. Lovely Venus, the planet of relating is here from the 14th and passion planet Mars enters Libra on the 22nd. So this is lining up to be a special month for you, even if it does come with a few twists and turns. Throw yourself into life and do more of what you love. Embrace the good times and make the most of your opportunities. Venus in Libra is always promising for new love and making the most of your special connections.
Before Venus and Mars enter Libra, they are both in Virgo and your home and family sector. The start of the month is important in this respect as these two key planets come together for the only time this year on the 5th, the day of the Full Moon.
So this could be an important date for your family and your connection with loved ones. There is a sense that family come first now and it’s a good time to prioritise the people who are dear to your heart.
You might find this month that your family clash with your partner or a similar scenario. This is because both Venus and Mars move on to confront Saturn in Sagittarius and your relationship and partnership sector.
The key dates are the 8th and 11th. So you might find yourself caught up in a tug-of-war or perhaps you’re trying to sell property and estate agents or buyers aren’t playing ball. If you find yourself up against opposition in any shape or form, back off a little and push forward once again at a later date.
The best date for lining up agreements and getting other people’s approval is the 13th when Saturn in your partnership sector teams up with your ruling planet Mercury. This is good for finalising a contract or having a serious on in-depth discussion.
The big news this month however is Jupiter’s move into Scorpio. Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and good fortune, it represents expansion and luck and it spends one year in each sign of the zodiac. On October 10th, Jupiter leaves the air sign Libra and enters the water sign Scorpio.
Scorpio rules work and routine, health and lifestyle in your horoscope and the second half of October is a brilliant time to take on a new role, find the perfect job, reconnect with your purpose or passion and get back on track with a fitness regime.
Your ruling planet Mercury enters Scorpio on the 17th and teams up with Jupiter almost immediately on the 18th. These two planets together promise big ideas and opportunities which allow you to express yourself, to learn, teach and make progress.
Jupiter adds the luck factor so focus on what you love and do your job well and look after your body. The other important date to note is the 26th when the Sun makes its annual conjunction with Jupiter. This promises luck and good fortune, so use this date to apply for a job or to boost your health.
Being of service also falls under Scorpio’s domain, wanting to help others or create value in other people’s lives. Scorpio is the sign of healing and in your chart it’s linked to your own health and well-being. Focus on the mind-body-spirit connection and get in touch with a higher purpose to guide you and support others.
