Let's just say it like it is, Gemini – September was as awful as it gets. Between Mercury Retrograde and two eclipses, the astro-weirdness did not stop. But October is a fantastically creative and romantic month – especially right at the start. Can you say YAY? The New Moon that blossomed at the very end of September sets the tone for a beautiful October, and this juicy vibe lasts for three weeks. If you want to launch a new project or a new relationship, the first week of the month is ideal – don't waste a moment. When your ruler Mercury moves into Libra on the 7th, the possibilities are endless, and even better – they're within reach. There's a powerful Full Moon on the 16th, highlighting your goals, wishes, and friendships. Someone you started networking with about six months ago could prove to be very useful to you, so follow up with contacts you made last winter and early last spring. This is when Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram start to really pay off. After the 22nd you're all about translating your amazing ideas into concrete projects. This peaks at the New Moon on the 30th – so put your plan in motion on or before Halloween. You may not be keen on dressing up and going out, because you're getting stuff DONE.

September is NOT kidding around, Gemini. This is some of the most intense astrology of the year, and it starts on the 1st, with a New Moon/Solar Eclipse. Not only will this bring a shakeup of sorts to your domestic scene, it's also hitting the exact same part of your chart as Mercury Retrograde, which began just a few days earlier. The emphasis is on home and family, and hopefully on healing old wounds so you can finally let go and move on. By the time Mercury goes direct on the 22nd, you'll know a lot more about the denouement of the story that starts at the beginning of the month. In the meantime, auspicious Jupiter moves into an air sign like your own, bringing progress and expansion to your creative and romantic life. You haven't had it this good in twelve years. The best part? This lasts for a whole twelve months. The second event of eclipse season arrives on the 16th, when the Full Moon brings an emotional tsunami to your career zone. Yes, this could be one of those "cry at work" days, but holding your feelings inside is not the right move – let it all out for best results. This by no means suggests something negative is happening on the professional front, rather, it's just that your status is rising and new challenges are coming your way. The month closes with yet another New Moon, this one in the same part of your chart that Jupiter just entered. Yes, Ms. Twin, amazing opportunities abound for your romantic and creative life – especially if you set some intentions right now.
