Gemini horoscope for October 2022

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but will then end the month in your busy work sector, this is always a month when a balance between work and play is important. While the Sun sticks to a constant timetable, leaving a playful part of your chart and returning to your work sector on 23rd October each year, Venus and Mercury have a similar but much looser timetable, sometimes taking the same steps weeks before or after. This can create an overlap, though things are a lot tighter this year.

That is because the Sun and Venus will both take that step within hours of each other. This also makes it important to make the most of the planetary activity in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart at the start of the month, for while Mercury will stay on after the Sun and Venus leave on 23rd October, his departure on 30th October will end all planetary activity here. Meanwhile, this is good news for work and job matters as well as the start of a series of significant events. It begins with the Sun and Venus' return to your work sector, with the Moon's return triggering an eclipsing New Moon two days later on 25th October.

Three days before Jupiter is due to retrograde back out of the career sector on 28th October, this will be a catalyst for both new job and untapped professional potential. This is something that Mars will be all over, with the warrior planet of the cosmos failing to leave Gemini and instead staying on for the rest of the year. Mars will be looking for anything to channel his warrior and competitive spirit into but already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on 31st October, he is playing a long game.

Love & Romance

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your romantic sector, this can be the most romantically charged month of any year and even more so in 2022. For the last two years, there has been a degree of separation between the Sun and Venus, with the planet of love either moving through the heavens ahead or behind the Sun. Having begun the year in retrograde motion, it has taken until now for Venus to catch up but that she does here in your romantic sector, adds to the spirit of romance.

While the Sun had been in your romantic sector for six days by the time Venus returned, they not only begin the month together but will both end on 23rd October. It is just hours after they leave that Venus will inch ahead of the Sun, but they will spend their final days together aligned, making the period from 20th October to 23rd October some of the most romantically charged days of the month, with the sun literally shining on matters of the heart and on the planet of love's influence. Even then, with the Moon moving through from 23rd October to 25th October the spirit of romance will linger.

It is not until Mercury leaves on 30th October that all planetary activity on the romantic front will end, but not before spending an extraordinary amount of time giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page. Mercury first returned for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit in late August but having retrograded back out just hours after the Sun returned, will come back for a double dip visit from 11th October to 30th October. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the relationship front, with the Moon here until 2nd October and then returning again from 27th October to 30th October will make the early and latter days of the month an important time to check in.

Business & Career

Four factors combine to not only make this a stunning month professionally but the month that everything changes, with either one on their own capable of that. The first is not just having Mars in Gemini but his refusal to leave, giving you additional time with the warrior planet of the cosmos but also the confidence to go after bigger and bolder goals. By the time you move into the new month, Mars has been in Gemini for six weeks, which is the length of a typical visit. However, instead of leaving Mars is slowing down, with a retrograde turn on 31st October keeping him here for the next six months.

Having Mars' warrior and competitive spirit on tap and knowing that it is not going to suddenly cut out on you was always going to energise the final months of this professional year. The second factor is the beginning of the first planetary activity on the job front this year, something that will start with a bang when within hours of each other the Sun and Venus both return to your work sector on 23rd October. Completing this will be Mercury's return on 30th October. The third factor is the Moon's return to your work sector from 25th October to 27th October for what is anything but an ordinary monthly visit.

Because the Sun will be in your work sector by then, their alignment was always going to create a New Moon but because the South Node is here, the New Moon on 25th October will be a solar eclipse, something that can act as a major trigger. The fourth factor that makes this an extraordinary month and a major turning point in this professional year happens on 28th October when, nearly five months after leaving, Jupiter will not only retrograde back into your career sector but to join up with Neptune again. Jupiter is only here until just before Christmas, bringing the planets of luck and dreams together for one last time in our lifetime.


While this is a fairly slow point in the financial year, on both sides of the financial fence there is reason to suggest that this should be a good month for both income and money matters but for different reasons. There has been no planetary activity in your income sector since Venus left in August, ending all planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence until Mars returns in March. However, this has not only banked a lot of untapped income potential and momentum but as the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Ceres moved through they provided a lot of support for both planets in your career sector and the South Node in your work sector.

It is on the job and career fronts that things are set to come alive and especially towards the end of the month and that is when all that untapped income potential could have unexpected implications. Especially as this will be led by Venus, the planet of money's return to your work sector on 23rd October and Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion's return to your career sector on 28th October. In between a solar eclipse on 25th October is going to jumpstart this professional year, with implications across the income, work and career fronts for weeks to come.

This is something that the Moon's return to your income sector from 16th October to 18th October will help you tap into, with a chance to sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger. Meanwhile, while Pluto will turn direct in your financial sector on 9th October he will still keep a low profile. There has been a lot of support for Pluto and money matters and that will continue, giving you a quiet sense of confidence on the financial front and with money matters as a whole. With the Sun not returning until December there is no pressure to reinvent the wheel.


While there has been no planetary activity in your health sector so far this year, having the South Node here has helped to maintain the right balance when it comes to knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. This has helped to keep things balanced without too much actual focus on health matters. That will change when on 23rd October the Sun and Venus will both return within a few hours of each other. This will see the solar spotlight shift onto your health needs, situation and matters just hours after Venus returns to fuel a desire to look and feel good. They will be joined by the Moon from 25th October to 27th October, creating a New Moon that will offer a chance to draw a new line in the sand.
