Gemini - October 2018
Hey there, lovely Gemini! Romance could add some sparkle to your world during the early days of October, as the new Moon of the 9th creates new beginnings in your house of love! It’s a fabulous time to go on a date with someone for the first time, begin a love affair or tell the object of your desire how you feel about them. This is a very creative area of your solar chart, therefore this period is also fruitful for beginning an artistic project or exciting pastime. The full Moon on the 24th on the other hand draws your attention inward, and focusses your energy on quiet reflection and meditation. The world may seem too much to handle as we reach this last week of the month, and it’s important to take a break if you feel this way. The Moon makes some challenging connections across the skies at this time, which will make this a difficult time for you, spiritually; you may feel you have lost your way for a short period or find it harder to make your intuition work for you.
Venus turns retrograde in your work zone on the 6th, and after this date it will be harder to find the joy in your everyday routines, as life seems to become a collection of mundane chores from which there is no escape! If you can, it’s best to avoid important decisions about your working life this month, as when Venus is moving backwards our emotions tend to be a little hypersensitive and you may make a choice you later regret. This could be an overindulgent time in relation to eating and drinking, hence you will need to pay close attention to your dietary habits. Venus and Mars join together until the 19th in an impetuous connection which might create some unhappiness in your current work environment. You will feel like a change here, and a new job may be on the cards. This is likely to involve some kind of retraining or a possible relocation; initial teething problems will be resolved by mid-November.
Finances should improve slightly as Pluto turns direct in your house of debts on the 1st of October; the pressure to pay off those lingering bills will feel less intense. As he moves back and forth across this area, he is slowly breaking down the existing structures you have in place for dealing with money matters, and forcing you to review your expectations around how such matters are dealt with. You may be struggling to obtain credit or have lost an important source of income, and this has forced you to become more financially independent. Pluto’s supportive sextile with Mercury between the 16th and 24th sends important communication about an unpaid bill which has not been settled because of a disagreement. Advice from someone with more information than you will help you to resolve this issue.
Chiron is back in your career zone now, and with him he brings all that emotional baggage from which you thought you had been freed when he last left this place in June. This is only a brief visit, by February he will be moving on again, but before then you may find yourself reliving a difficult career interaction, such as a tough interview or argument with a superior. Jupiter connects positively with Chiron throughout October, a fabulous aspect for mentoring others in your work place. You may also experience an enhanced interest in healing, charitable ventures and working with the elderly or sick, now, as your compassion takes the lead in your career choices. Enjoy your month!
