Gemini - October 2019
Hey Gemini! Romance is number one on your agenda in October, as the Sun heads for your house of love! The first three weeks of the month are likely to be busy ones for meeting and interacting with potential partners. It will be a flirtatious and hedonistic time, in which you won’t be taking life or yourself too seriously, and will have little time for people who do. This is also a highly creative period for you, in which leisure activities need to reflect your personality and preferences. Financial issues could prevent you enjoying life as you would like, however, when the Sun crosses the Moon’s nodes between the 4th and 13th. New love which arrives between the 8th and 18th is likely to be very intense and passionate as the Sun squares Pluto, and these feelings will generate jealousy and possessiveness. Take care that relationships developing here get off to the right start and iron out these negative emotions from the offset.
Neptune meets Lilith in your career zone this month, a mystical combination of energies which will enhance your need for spiritual honesty in your work. Any involvement in projects which are not satisfying your emotional needs will drain you, work needs to be from the heart and have real meaning. Boundaries are easily blurred under the influences of this connection, hence it may be harder to establish your personal identity now in the work place, and create a niche for yourself based on your individual talents. If your birthday falls between the 3rd and 13th of June, you will find it especially hard to break free of commitments to others, as Neptune settles on your natal Sun. Compassionate and artistic influences come from Venus’s involvement here between the 17th and 25th; this is an excellent week for pitching inventive ideas to those who have the power to turn your creative visions into reality.
Managing money has been an issue for Geminis for some time, as Saturn and Pluto have both spent the last two months retrograde in your house of debts. With both planets moving forward again after the 3rd of October, you will finally begin to feel you have some control over your outgoings. There is lots of practical support out there with debt problems now, and if you are struggling financially, it’s a good time to recognise this and seek help. Mercury and Pluto become entangled from the 16th to 24th in an aspect which persists until early December, as Mercury turns retrograde next month. This connection will send you some radical conversations about how to make more money; the action you take here will have a huge impact on your financial peace of mind and independence, and by extension your life in general.
October’s lunar activity sends us a full Moon in your house of friends and social events on the 13th; this is an excellent time to finalise plans for a party or important social gathering. Jupiter adds some extravagance and generosity to the mix, so watch for wastefulness and excessive spending! Difficulties with a close friend may reach a head now, as you are forced to confront your issues and talk it out. Hopes and opportunities are reborn on the 28th with the new Moon, and the focus here is your house of everyday work and health. Opposition from Uranus creates unexpected changes to routines and the revelation of secrets in your work place. If health has been getting you down, a new chapter is beginning in which you will feel more able to focus on taking care of yourself. Have a fabulous October!
