Happy October, flirty Gemini! At the end of September, you focused on prioritizing your happiness in love. Everyone wants a Gemini; your sign drips of charisma and sex. As a result, you sometimes forget to base your dating decisions on what you want. Take advantage of the new moon in romantic Libra on Wednesday, October 6, to set clear intentions that focus on your needs specifically. Are you after a fling or something more long-term? Decide what you truly desire, and work on obtaining it.
On this same date, Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, goes direct. Many planets end a retrograde during October, but let’s tackle the god of the underworld first. Pluto has been in retrograde since Tuesday, April 27, giving you the task of dropping bad habits. With a confidence boost from the new moon coming into play, no time will be given to just any hottie who slides into your DMs. Only respond to the ones who truly interest you, and ignore the rest. Your happiness is the whole point of being alive, darling Gemini. You’re allowed to be selfish in love.
The following day, on Thursday, October 7, lover planet Venus enters sexy Scorpio and your 6th House of Health. Take this time to remind yourself that your romantic decisions can have a huge impact on your mental health and bring attention to those who know how to make you happy.
On Sunday, October 10, the strict daddy planet Saturn ends its retrograde, where it’s been since Sunday, May 23. You created boundaries around your return to socialization during this time. We tend to focus on love and sex, but boundaries are also important in your professional life. You may have found yourself insisting on working from home for the sake of your mental health or realized you deserve to be paid more. With Saturn now direct, it’s time for you to clearly state your demands. You deserve their execution, and bosses and coworkers should be more ready to respect your wishes right now.
The lucky planet Jupiter goes direct too on Sunday, October 17. The fortuitous planet has been retrograde since Sunday, June 20. You worked your ass off and proved your professional worth during this retrograde. Allow yourself to celebrate the fruits of your labor when the planet goes direct. The second half of October is filled with bountiful career news. Even emailing with your coworkers flows easier once Mercury retrograde wraps up on Tuesday, October 19.
