Gemini ♊ October 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


The solar spotlight is always on home, family and/or property matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of September in your home and family sector. There had been no planetary activity here this year until Mercury returned on 20th August, three days ahead of the Sun and when the Sun leaves on 23rd September it will be empty again. While Venus will return early next month and will spend the majority of October here, the planetary activity on the home front this year is the bare minimum and that makes this as if not more important than the bigger developments in play.

It is a Full Moon in your career sector on 2nd September and the clash between the Sun and Moon that creates this, that will send a work/life balance reminder in the early part of the month. However, this shouldn’t take away from the catalyst that this Full Moon can not only be professionally but financially with Venus, the planet of money in your income sector until 6th September and at a friendly aspect to the Moon during the Full Moon. Fortunately, with Neptune in retrograde motion in your career sector all month there are no heavy professional demands and while Mercury will return to your work sector on 27th September, the Sun will be gone from your home and family sector by then.

Venus, who begins the month in your income sector will return to your communication sector on 6th September. This is the latest point in the year that the planet of love can return and held back by a retrograde phase this allowed the Sun and Mercury to go first, the latter spending over two months here. Venus will return to not only find the communication lines are open but for the first time in 17 years will return to find the South Node in your relationship sector. As Venus will return to give your relationships a voice that will make her job a lot easier this year.

LoveGemini September 2020 Love Horoscope

By the time Venus, the planet of love finally wrapped up her four month visit to Gemini to last month she had spent an extraordinary amount of time working to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. This is something that Venus spends just 24 days on each year and as just one part of the intentions and resolutions you will normally be making during your birthday month. Venus not only gave a third of the year to this but your birthday month only occupied a quarter of that time and whether you are consciously aware of it or not this has left you with an extraordinarily clear sense of what you want from matters of the heart and your relationships.

Venus’ departure last month was when the real journey began but as well as embarking on this journey with clear expectations you also started out with enduring support on both fronts. The South Node returned to your relationship sector in May and won’t leave until January 2022, while the asteroid Juno has been in your romantic sector since November 2019 and is still there. Juno will leave on 20th September but with Mercury returning on 6th September and the Sun on 23rd September, back up arrives in time to ensure there is no drop off in romantic support. A combination of Venus’ late return because of her retrograde phase and Mercury retrograding back into your romantic sector after leaving, will keep your romantic occupied and active through to November.

At the same time that the Sun and Mercury return to shore up resources on the romantic front this month Venus, the planet of love will return to your communication sector on 6th September, where she will spend the rest of the month. Held back by her retrograde phase Venus continues to lag behind the Sun and Mercury, who both left your communication sector last month. However, Venus will return to find the communication lines already open and that she can then use what has already been invested to focus this more specifically on giving your heart and your relationships a voice.

MoneyGemini September 2020 Money Horoscope

Even though there could be some financial tension at the start of the month this is a good sign rather than a sign of trouble ahead. Before leaving your income sector on 6th September Venus, the planet of money will spend her final week here opposed to all three planets in your financial sector, as was the case for the Sun and Mercury before her. While the Sun was more interested in observing any balance issues between money coming in and money going out this might have exposed and Mercury used this to sharpen his smart head for money, Venus will use this as motivation. Venus can be seen to represent our inner two year old, willing to throw a tantrum if we don’t get want we want.

When Venus comes up against Saturn in the early days of the month she is coming up against the hard taskmaster of the cosmos, demanding that you take care of financial housekeeping before looking at bringing more money in. Venus will rebel against that and with the help of a Full Moon in your career sector on 2nd September will use this as motivation. Once Venus leaves there will be no more planetary activity in your income sector this year so this will aid her mission to leave you motivated and with a good sense of where the money is. With new doors opening on the job front later in the month, if Venus achieves nothing other than to leave you motivated and with a lucrative sense of direction then she has done her job.

Venus’ departure will allow you to shift more attention onto your financial situation and money matters and the timing couldn’t be better. On 6th September, the same day that Venus leaves your income sector Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will move into his final week in retrograde motion, before turning direct on 13th September. Along with Saturn, who will turn direct on 29th September, Jupiter will leave your financial sector in December and his direct turn is the point where you are able to move forward when it comes to financial growth and expansion.

CareerGemini September 2020 Career Horoscope

This is a month that gets off to a good start but then delivers some unexpected surprises in the second half of the month. This is a point in any professional year when things are quieter and you are in more of a review mode. Throughout the 14 years that Neptune will spend in your career sector, from 2012 to 2026, he will spend from June to November in retrograde motion and he is now deep into the middle part of that retrograde phase. The faster moving planets move through your career sector in February and March and with the Sun not returning to your work sector until three weeks into October each year, things are fairly quiet at this time of year.

This year Neptune is not on his own, with the dwarf planet Ceres having joined up with the planet of dreams and fantasies in April. This should have been a two to three month visit but Ceres also turned retrograde in July, putting her focus on your needs and priorities into review mode as well. Together Neptune and Ceres are on a mission to update your professional dreams, needs and priorities and for now, they are doing that by looking back. That will remain the case but Ceres will retrograde back out on 27th September, leaving Neptune on his own until she returns in November. Why this month gets off to a good start is that Neptune and Ceres both have the support of Venus in your income sector until 6th September and she will be here during a Full Moon in your career sector on 2nd September.

The unexpected surprises referred to at the start aren’t on the career front but on the job front. With the Sun not returning to your work sector until 23rd October, Mercury’s return on 27th September is a surprise. This is early for even Mercury and in fact so early that he will be forced to turn retrograde next month, keeping him here until November. However, I referred to ‘surprises’ and not ‘surprise’ because on 20th September, a week before Mercury returns Juno, will return to your work sector for the first time in four years. Juno is here until November as well, with the two working as a team over the coming months, bringing Mercury’s intellectually savvy edge and Juno’s sense of commitment and resolve together.
