Horoscopes for October 6:

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “The Moon in Gemini squares off with lovely Venus in Virgo which could find you in a warm and cooperative mood. This can be a great aspect for working relationships and team efforts as good communication can assist with a desire to get ahead.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the significance of the Gemini Moon square Venus in Virgo. Gilchrist writes: “The Moon’s square to Venus (in the second Mercury-ruled sign of Virgo) suggests a crisis between fast-moving intel versus the urge to examine all of it in detail. Wants and needs are at cross purposes, so there will be restlessness and dissatisfaction as nothing really makes you happy or comfortable.” She adds: “Forget about aiming for perfection or pleasing everyone…Pick what works best (it won’t be perfect) and stick with that.”

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, advising: “The Moon spends the day in Gemini on Tuesday and Wednesday where it expresses itself as cold, aloof, and distant. The Moon in Gemini squares Venus in Virgo where she is task-oriented and project-driven…We can balance the energy by focusing on kindness. Acts of love and taking the time can bring back balance. Be aware while there are things to do (because duty calls); be the warmth in the middle of progress.”
