Gemini Horoscope: October 2018

Re-evaluating your work life

There are quite a few ways having Venus Retrograde in your work and health sector can play out this month. Venus turns retrograde on October 5, but you'll certainly feel her energy at play right as walk into October. You're most likely not feeling the love this month from colleagues or those you work with. If you are a business owner and have staff, it's possible that someone will leave or that you'll struggle with having to let go of someone because he or she isn't carrying their weight. Overall, you may feel a nagging sense of not being appreciated for the value you deliver on the job. It's almost like you're invisible and there might be a growing feeling of resentment that you just can't shake any longer.

However, sitting in this pool of resentment is not the answer. Venus Retrograde asks you to go within and do some serious soul-searching in order to figure out how to move past it. Remember, Gemini, the only person you can change is yourself. If you don't like your current work environment and you don't see any magical transformation possible where that will shift, it might be time to look for a new job.

Alternatively, if a part of you knows you haven't been giving your all to your work, and that you have slacked off in terms of productivity and delivering the value expected of you ... well, this month might serve as a wake-up call. You might receive a scathing employee review or even be put on probation. If this happens, it's time to step up and you know it.

Another possibility with Venus Retrograde in your work sector is that an office romance might get dark and ugly. Oh, Gemini ... what have you gotten yourself into?

This won't ring true for everyone and overall, there's actually promising news in the romance department. A New Moon on October 8 will land in your true love sector. It opens up a gorgeous window of opportunity to meet someone new and begin dating this person if you're single. For others, it might be a new beginning with a child -- or about you having a child. It can also relate to a brand-new creative endeavor you give birth to.

Venus Retrograde in your 6th House of Well-Being might also bring health matters to your attention. There could be an issue connected to your reproductive system that needs attention. With a Full Moon in your 12th House of Healing on October 24, some of you might have a medical procedure that requires hospitalization or a period of convalescence. If this is you, take the time in October to heal. There are no quick fixes when it comes to your health.
