Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
New moons, like the one coming on October 16, are usually not as emotional as full moons, but the planets will be on a rampage all month, so you can’t take anything for granted—double-check assumptions. This month’s new moon on October 16 will be in your fifth house of true love, and as it is also the house of creativity and artistic projects, this might be the main emphasis.
This new moon and Sun will be doing battle with the same planets Mars fought at the full moon October 1—Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. You may report expense overruns on a creative project and have problems getting additional funds approved. The money will again be a serious point of contention. If you are in the process of a divorce, you may have a six-month battle ahead, and if someone owes you a large sum, you will need to take the situation seriously and hire the best legal counsel you can afford. At the same time. Uranus will continue to oppose Mercury, your ruler, so you will need to be ready for a twist you don’t expect from the other side. Having a sharp, experienced, and intelligent lawyer will make all the difference in the outcome.
To make matters more complicated, Mercury, your ruler, will go retrograde from October 13 to November 3, and that will be within an ongoing period of Mercury’s big brother Mars currently also in retrograde, September 9 to November 13. Having Mercury and Mars retrograde at the same time will only make life move more slowly than it has so far. Keep your health strong (Gemini’s weak part of the body is the lungs) because I project a strong second wave of the virus in October, November, and early December.
Planets that orbit closest to earth are felt much more strongly than planets found further out in space. The planets that orbit closest to earth are Venus, Mercury, and Mars, and we’ll have two out of those three retrogrades at once. To say you will be reviewing the past and pinpointing any problem that you’ve had to live with over past months or years is an understatement.
This month holds two full moons, and the last one will occur in Taurus on October 31. Again, Uranus will be stirring the pot and will oppose the Sun to exact degree, directly on the last day of the month, and ironically, that is Halloween. The moon will be opposed to the Sun, adding to this unpredictable and unstable atmosphere at the full moon, which, although is a separate aspect, all adds into the difficulty of the month. Regardless of the industry you work in, you may have power outages, a computer problem, or sudden difficulty with your client. Be ready for anything, and if you are, nothing will faze you. As a Gemini, you are the most resourceful, adaptable, versatile, and flexible sign of the zodiac, and all your talents will come into play and keep you ahead of the pack.
