Hello Gemini! Jupiter is about to make an important sign change on the 11th of October, and will fill up your working world with his optimistic energy! This is a fabulous time to go for what you want at work, Jupiter is a lucky planet and will make sure you’re right where you need to be for all those fantastic job offers and promotion opportunities. Mentors may crop up as if from nowhere over the next few months to teach you exactly what you need to know; you are also more likely to retrain or be involved in studying of some kind in relation to your job. In general, this is a fabulous transit, the only thing to watch with Jupiter is that he tends to overdo things a little. His conjunction with the Sun after the 24th is a positive one for inspiring and impressing others with your confidence and charisma, but it’s not an overly practical connection, so be sure to consider your choices carefully.
This month’s Moon cycle will focus on how much of your time is spent attending to your own needs and wants. The full Moon of the 5th draws your attention to friendships and how you deal with them, and a difficult T square formation here between the Moon, Mercury and Pluto indicates that a disagreement with a friend is likely. This could connect to their selfish behaviour, but they are also likely to be very vocal in letting you know exactly what they think of you. Money will also be an issue between you and may be the trigger for the release of hidden resentment and unexpressed anger. The new Moon of the 19th is more positive and offers you a chance to try a new creative project or attend an entertaining social event such as a theatre or concert, simply for your own enjoyment. Children and their ambitions are likely to feature heavily in your plans around this time, and you might hear wonderful news of a pregnancy or birth, too.
Chiron is pushing towards the final stages of his trek through your career sector now, so there is not a lot more to be done on healing those insecurities around whether you are really good enough to achieve your ambitions. He opposes Venus between the 6th and 15th, a tricky aspect which brings recent concerns about your creative abilities back up to the surface. Conflicts with authority figures over freedom to use your own initiative may knock your confidence during these days. Problems with Mars and Saturn from the 11th to 21st could also create tension around feeling unable to vent your anger in a career situation, as others seem intent on suppressing your will. Expressing yourself in an assertive and non-confrontational way is the key here, not just to resolving immediate issues but to unlocking your real long-term potential.
With the Sun in your house of romance until the 23rd, expressing feelings of affection and attraction should feel fairly easy, and you will be comfortable about letting potential partners know how you feel about them! Venus is also here after the 15th to add extra charm to your romantic life. Take care when the Sun and Pluto clash between the 3rd and 18th, this will be a time of intense emotions in matters of the heart and you might become a little obsessive or over protective of loved ones. Controlling and manipulative people are more likely to enter your world at a romantic level now; guard yourself against these negative emotions as best you can or they will drain you. Enjoy your October!
