Month of October

The sun is in Libra for most of the month which is good news for you because you share a terrific affinity with the sign of the Scales. This is the relationship sign too, of course, so you, like the rest of us, will get a lot further a lot quicker by being cooperative and thinking in collective terms.

It's all in all a generally favourable month, going on the way that the rest of the sky is looking, and here comes your opportunity to get your life/work balance just right. With the love planets dancing away in Virgo, gentle romance is the name of the game, plus your sexual allure is something else.

Your ruler Mercury is later in the month joined in Scorpio by the sun, firing up your industry and drive to put plans into practice and not just fritter away opportunity by endlessly talking about 'this' or talking yourself out of 'that.'

The sun opposite Uranus on the 20th is a not so gentle reminder as to why you should never take friendships for granted, or you'll clear the air.

The other big news is that planet of luck and opportunity and every sign's friend, Jupiter, makes its annual move, also into Scorpio, where it'll meet the sun on the 27th. This is not only a lucky time, but life also gets steamier - intimacy is this sign's speciality. In terms of luck, self-belief at work and/or taking pleasure in getting fit is how you will make yours. The flipside of this is a little overindulgence, and if that's your reward for all your hard work, then good for you.

Oh you Geminis! You have enough brains for two people and you know how to use the old grey matter too. You can flirt the socks off the rest of us because you know who to read people and what's likely to get into their head. You can make people laugh and you have some of the most brilliant insights around. Forget what you've heard about Geminis being two-faced. It's not that you're anymore two-faced than the next person. You just have an uncanny ability to see every story from at least two sides, which can be confusing to those around you. You're the curious type and you're not afraid of asking the kinds of questions which can make others squirm a little. Let them squirm. Sometimes there are questions which just need to be asked, and if it falls to you to do the interrogating, so be it!

You're a versatile mutable sign which means that you're rarely rigid in your ideas. In fact, flitting from one idea to the next is your forte and one of your weaknesses. Far from needing to learn to keep your mind open, you need to learn to focus on one thing at a time. Your knowledge and the diversity of that knowledge means that you don't like to be kept on one track and if there is one criticism people are likely to make of you it's that you tend to intellectualise things too much. You even try to intellectualise and rationalise feelings. Next time you find yourself doing this, stop, and do a double check, to discover how you feel, rather than how you think you feel.

You have a well-ordered mind, despite your tendency to think one hundred things at once. You're the type to get conversations started during awkward silences and you have highly developed critical facilities. You also have a reputation for being one of the worst flirts of the zodiac. Who are they kidding when they say that? You're one of the best! Flirting is as much about getting into someone's mind as it is about anything else, and you know just how to do that when the spirit moves you. You also have a reputation for being slightly fickle, as well as prone to fits of blackness, but this is the price you pay for your quick wit. Yes, there are times when you feel down and as though the world is a dark, dark place, but just as quickly as these moods descend upon you, they up and leave.

Ruled by Mercury, the fleet footed messenger, you remain as flexible as a reed in the wind and more than happy to adapt to the situations you find yourself in.
