October 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Gemini
Get ready for a month of fun and pleasure, lovely Gemini! The stars predict that you will have an especially lucky month in romance, friends, and domestic attributes. In general, your career will be stable but also somewhat uneventful, so you can put your energy into more personal matters now. Along with this theme, your finances will be stable, but you will not see any major financial gains over the course of the month. If you don't go overboard in discretionary spending, you should be fine! That being said, you will have many opportunities for socializing this month, so be prepared to save up for those parties! The full moon is on the 5th in Aries, and it is an exciting one for you! The new moon fills you with wild energy, and you will feel the need to move. Tonight is a perfect night to go dancing, or even have a dance party at home! If dancing isn't your strong suit, being near the fire will make you feel alive tonight. The stars encourage you to have a bonfire outside. This will help you connect to the moon's fiery energy in Aries. The moon invites you to celebrate in its joy this evening. This is a perfect way to begin the month, and it will put you in good spirits for the rest of the week.
Since September of last year, Jupiter has been in your fifth house, the romance and creativity sector. You have had many pleasurable pursuits over the past year and seem to find excitement wherever you look. All well-deserved for you, dear Gemini! You may have been dating, flirting, and being romantic in general. Regardless of whether these endeavors have led to long lasting relationships, your soul is simply nourished by basking in these joys all on their own. This period of fun will last until October 10th. Focus your attention on play rather than work until then, as you have the rest of the year and then some to focus on other areas. On the 11th of this month, Jupiter will transit into the fifth house of work, responsibilities, and service. While this is certainly a drastic change from playtime, you will find more meaning in these areas right now. Jupiter will remain in the sixth house until November of next year, so you can look forward to development in your career and have opportunities to volunteer. This focus on service based work will be extra fulfilling to you this month, as Libra rules the skies until the 23rd. Libra's advocate energy fuels people to put their idealistic view to action and make the world a better place. Enjoy this harmonious time of giving, for your spirit, will be greatly rewarded!
Venus will be in your fourth house until October 14th. Your fourth house rules the areas of home and family. With Venus' feminine touch, she will ensure that these areas of your life are harmonious and bright. You may want to get in touch with your roots during this time. If there is anyone from your past that you are still connected with, contact them, as they are waiting for you! Often, the original people in our lives are somehow connected to us in a karmic sense, and you may benefit here from reconnecting with your karma. Additionally, it is a great time to concentrate on all things domestic. You will get extra enjoyment out of doing nice things for your family, and generally let them know how much you love them. If there are spaces in your home that you want to create anew, this month urges you to get to work! Venus will ensure that any interior decorating or remodeling becomes a true work of art, so don't be afraid to infuse the space with items that reflect your vibrant personality!
Mercury, your ruler, enters Scorpio on the 17th of this month. This is a time of sacred opportunity to delve into the depth of your higher self. While you are inclined to get off topic quickly, be restless, and hold multiple ideas at once, the Universe asks you to pay attention to what your inner truth is. You are naturally a great communicator, and Scorpio encourages you to dig deep into your emotions to find your inner voice. What have you kept secret from yourself? What is your body trying to tell you? Because your communication will be stellar today, grab a journal and write down any thoughts that come through. Your power is in your writing and expression, so use it to your advantage today! This will also spark inspiration in your spiritual sector, and you may be drawn to spiritual books or ideas. Feel free to explore new ways of looking at spirituality, as now is a good time to expand your perspective.
Take the time to spend some quality alone time this month. Your health is predicted to be excellent if you continue a healthy diet and take care of yourself. On the 23rd, the Sun enters your sixth house of work and service. This sector also relates to health and physical wellness. This alignment will give you the tools you need to stay healthy and active throughout the rest of the month. While you thrive in the company of others, you definitely need to focus on unwinding after a long day. Restorative sleep is especially necessary this month. If you are feeling extra restless, a soothing herbal tea with chamomile and lavender will help you sink into a blissful night's sleep. Make sure to get at least 7 to 8 hours of rest per night, and make time for restful activities throughout the week, such as watching a movie or reading a book. Your alone time is used to recharge your batteries! The Sun in your sixth house also encourages you to take pleasure in your daily hygiene routine. While it may seem boring, a long shower, body scrub, and soothing lotion can turn a tired body into a work of art. Enjoy these simple pleasures!
