Your October Gemini Love Horoscope
The first week of the month is a social one, as Venus rounds out a four-month visit to Leo and your chatty, interactive third house. The other love planet, spicy Mars, is in Libra and your passionate fifth house until October 12. A fall fling or some epic date nights could start the month of right. On October 14, the Libra solar eclipse could bring a brand-new chapter to your love story, with someone new or the person you’re with.
On October 8, Venus ends a long visit to Leo that began on June 5 and included a challenging retrograde from July 22 to September 3. Now, the love planet moves on to Virgo, activating your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations until November 8.
With tender Venus ensconced in Virgo, you’ll feel the magnetic pull of Chez Virgo and a desire to spend more time around your closest people. If you’re in a relationship, you might want to zip yourselves into your couple bubble and not emerge till after Thanksgiving! While you’re in there, share a few vulnerable confessions and be receptive to theirs.
If you live with your S.O., you might be inspired to refeather your shared nest, whether it’s with a major home-improvement project or just some decorating changes. Single Geminis might need to pry yourselves out of the house and into some good mingling settings. Grab a chatty wingperson to keep you from bailing or sneaking off early.
Meanwhile, over in your passionate fifth house, lusty Mars is stoking your libido as it makes its biennial blaze through Libra and your pleasure sector until October 12. Whether you’re single or attached, the first half of the month grants you head-turning magnetism and major mojo—plus, plenty of options to choose from, especially at the October 14 Libra solar eclipse.
Make the most of this glamorous cycle by dressing up and enjoying all the attention you effortlessly attract. For some Twins, a casual flirtation could heat up to full consummation. (Note: This could come with a side of drama since Mars can drive up jealousy and competitiveness.) Longtime couples will enjoy these sizzling vibes, which, P.S., also shed ideal babymaking mood lighting if you’re of that mindset!
Once lusty Mars zips into Scorpio on October 12, you're lit with motivational energy until November 24. Surprise: You'll be as pumped about spreadsheets as you are about Spin class. Before you shoot for the moon, though, make sure your tanks are filled with rocket fuel (read: clean, vitamin-rich food and enough cash to pull off the plan). Single Geminis could meet someone while engaged in healthy pursuits. Paired-up Twins can get closer by tackling a shared project or fitness goal. The magic is in the mundane!
