Two full moons this month are going to lead to some roadblocks for you, Gemini. But the good news is that your responsiveness and bright energy will have you smashing those roadblocks into success. Your main focus will be finances, but don’t neglect your love life. Your partner might need more attention than usual.
During the new moon in Libra, you will feel the urge to communicate more than usual. Pay attention to your urge to practice self-expression. Take a virtual painting class, a dancing class, or another art that you are interested in.

This is also a great time to pick up your lapsed journaling habit. Write down your feelings to keep your emotions balanced, and ride the wave of discipline you will experience during this time.
Although the pandemic is still happening, you might find your social life picking up. You will be invited to several parties, most of them virtual.

If you are in a relationship, don’t hold back and declare your attraction boldly. If you’re starting a new relationship, be honest and straightforward. And if you’re single, consider the people around you. A partner prospect might be standing in front of you, and you just don’t know it yet. Around the 22nd, your desire for romance will amplify.

Virgo the Maiden: August 23 – September 22
Virgo! Don’t let Mercury retrograde get you down. Your confidence might be suffering right now, but your industrious nature and the constant pursuit of knowledge will pull you through. Don’t get too bogged down in the facts, though. Take time to get in touch with your emotions to stay in good mental health. This is not the time to say you feel “okay.” If you feel “disgruntled,” admit it.
Feeling cooped up? Take a quick road trip on a weekend and experience the fall foliage to get out of your head. Fresh air will be extremely beneficial to clear up muddled emotions. Don’t ask a friend or family member to tag along. You need some alone time to reflect and unwind.

Scorpio the Scorpion: October 23 – November 21
Most people see you as secretive, Scorpio, and that could be a problem this month, especially at your job.

Although Mercury retrograde might make this challenging mid-month, it will be worth it to clear your reputation.
October is a good time for Scorpios to take control of their spirituality. You may have lost the course of your spiritual path this year. Reflect on why, and seek answers. Write them down. At the end of the month, this will benefit you as you improve communication in romantic relationships.

Sexy will boost your confidence this month. Diffuse it and move forward with your ambitions to experience success.
The friendly Aquarius will be at a crossroads this month. Although a new friendship proposition is on the horizon, Aquarius’ need for alone time might hinder the progression of the relationship. As a student of humanitarianism, open up your heart and embrace any discomfort at overextended social time. You will be grateful for it later because this will be a lifelong friend.
Mars will attempt to control your actions this month. As a result, you will be inspired to do the opposite of what is expected of you. This could create a big problem at work or at home. Try to let go of your urge to resist convention. Nobody is going to steal your intellectual independence in the meantime. You simply need to march to someone else’s drum to maintain harmony.
This month, your blend is Relieve to help you cope with any pressure this month may bring.

Although you have differences, you will realize they are not worth the current distress in the long run.
Focus is your blend for this month. Keep your eye on the prize and success will follow.
