Gemini Monthly Horoscope: October 2016
Love seems happy this month – the retrograde of your love planet not withstanding. It is not really a month for wedding bells – though it is a more romantic month – it seems more about love affairs. Courtship rather than marriage. Singles have many choices – older, more established people, intellectuals, neighbours and old flames from the past. Too much of a good thing is sometimes worse than too little. It introduces all kinds of complications and confusion – still, it is a nice problem to have.
As we have been saying all along, go slow in love and let it develop. There is no rush. There are some bumps on the road to love this month as your love planet receives some stressful aspects. But these are all short-term phenomena. Be more patient with the beloved from the 13th to the 18th and from the 27th to the 30th. Most of the planets are still below the horizon of your chart, so this is still a time for focusing on family and domestic issues – for attaining emotional harmony.
Your career planet, Neptune, is still retrograde, so career issues still need time for resolution. You are still very much in a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 23rd. Keep in mind our discussion from last month. This is still in effect until the 23rd. This month your horoscope is a ‘splash’ type. This means that the planets are more or less dispersed through the entire chart.
This shows many, many interests. Geminis by nature have many interests. But now this is reinforced. While this leads to a well-rounded development – you have many interests and you do many things well – it can lead to a dispersion of your energy – a lack of focus. Sometimes it is better to have a narrower field of interest and focus on those things – the likelihood for success is greater.
You will have to ‘force yourself’ to focus on your real priorities now. The temptation to disperse yourself will be very great. Finances are status quo. In general earning power should be stronger from the 1st to the 12th and from the 26th onwards – as the Moon waxes – than at other times. You can schedule yourself accordingly.
