While there are a number of people who live for the charming sweater weather of October and pumpkin spice delights, there is nothing more quaint or easygoing about it this year.
Fortunately, the 12 astrological seasons affect everyone differently, so the silver lining is, October 2020 will be the best month for two lucky zodiac signs: Gemini and Scorpio. However, even the lucky ones have to wait their turn, so don’t get too excited just yet.
After one of the most crucial lunations of the year, aka the Full Moon in Aries on October 1st, Venus, Libra’s governing planet and the planet of love, relationships, and sensual pleasures, enters Virgo on October 2nd, bringing attention to the value of simplicity.
Virgo is all about the details and they’d rather go through the tedious process, however long it takes to see results. This energy will be reflected in the collective, especially with regard to relationships and the language of love.
Pluto, lord of the Underworld and planet of transformation, will station directly alongside Jupiter-Saturn in Capricorn on October 4, automatically intensifying the atmosphere.
Also, before you get excited about the Halloween Full Moon in Taurus, remember that Mercury will be starting its retrograde through Scorpio on October 13th, so keep your eyes peeled. Here’s why Gemini and Scorpio are the two zodiac signs that have something to look forward to in October:

You have time to reflect, celebrate, and relax. Want the bad news first, Gemini? Your governing planet, Mercury, is retrograde this month via your sixth house of wellness, daily rituals, and due diligence, which could be annoying.
In the worst-case scenario, however, you miss a deadline, or maybe an appointment. Other than that, everything is fine, so be sure to triple-check your emails, calendar invitations, and texts. Mercury retrogrades three to four times a year, so this isn’t your first rodeo.
Also, flip that energy back and you can really take advantage of Mercury retrograde’s resourcefulness, especially if you have deadlines. Then again, you might as well use this time to strategize for your next night out, or even for a Halloween party (if you take the right safety precautions, of course).
With the Sun lighting up your fifth house of fun, happiness, romance, and gratitude, you’ll be in the mood for something exciting and festive. Mars is retrograding through your 11th house of friendship groups, so you might as well get together with your best friends and tell them how much you’ve missed them.
With Venus dazzling your domestic fourth house of home, family, and inner sanctuary, the mood will be sweet. So if you’re not in the mood to play the party host, put on your favorite silk pajamas, put on your favorite TV show, and make yourself at home.
You start to feel like yourself again, and it’s refreshing. Welcome back, Scorpio. There really is no better feeling than the one you get every year around this time, as soon as your mysterious governing planet, Pluto, wakes up from its long retrograde sleep.
It’s almost like you can hear, smell, see, and taste life the way you want, without any blockages. In addition, aside from counting the days until your favorite holiday, Halloween, the Sun makes its annual debut in your sign on October 22nd, and if you think Pluto direct is energizing, hold on.
The Sun is invigorating and revitalizing, you might even feel like you’ve finally gotten your mojo back. Although with Mars, your traditional governing planet, retrograding through your sixth house of accountability and due diligence, you might feel less productive than you would like.
Don’t worry, there are ways to transform this energy so that it works in your favor. For example, if there is a new exercise routine or daily ritual that you would like to incorporate into your life, now is the time to do it.
This is also the perfect time to work on your physical form, as long as you don’t push it to the extreme. Mercury retrogrades through your sign as well, so again, if you’re in the mood for a happy and well-deserved break, it’s possible during this time. So, bask in your sweet solitude, if need be.
