Here is your horoscope for 17 Oct 2020


Today is strong for sorting out your thoughts and observing what’s going on around you, dear Aries. Still, if you can find a way to get away from it all, even if it’s about exploring an interest or enjoying a diversion, it’s a good idea to do so. Communications happening now can serve to help you center and pace yourself. Another person’s perspective, even if it diverges from yours significantly, tends to enhance your understanding. As the day advances, we approach a Sun-Saturn square that can remind you of an area of your life that requires patience. You may not get what you want just now, probably due to career or other responsibilities and limitations with Saturn at the top of your solar chart. However, delays or slowdowns can help you refocus your attention on your priorities, and as you do, you might discover new and improved methods. It’s better to focus on what’s best for you in the long-term rather than go for immediate gratification. If the pressures of others’ expectations weigh on you, consider being clearer about your need for appreciation. People may forget that you need some positive feedback or encouragement from time to time..


Your instincts are very good for relating today, dear Taurus, and you might successfully address a past matter now. While you might come to a smooth, pleasant agreement with someone today, the Sun is heading toward a square to Saturn, which can bring on the reality of a project or situation. Aim to look for ways to work around roadblocks rather than dwelling on discouragement for too long. This transit can serve as a reminder of rules or practical details that you overlooked in the past. You have a stronger than usual need to express yourself through the work you do or service you provide these days, but today you could feel overburdened or under-appreciated for your efforts. Getting through your responsibilities or work can feel longer and slower now, and it may be best to take things one step at a time and avoid pushing yourself. Timing may be off, but it’s temporary.


Communication can help center you and relieve your mind regarding some of your troubles or concerns today, dear Gemini, especially related to health and work. You may very well develop unique methods of doing work, managing health and well-being, and handling chores in the weeks ahead. As today advances, we get closer to a Sun-Saturn square, and if something’s wearing down or showing signs of strain, it may very well break down. With Saturn involved, things usually can be fixed and improved, making it a wise idea to focus on solving problems. There may be discouraging reminders or indicators that a project, plan, dream, or idea needs tweaks, and it’s important not to rush through things. Abide by the rules today for best results since Saturn’s energies don’t favor cutting corners. Filling your heart’s desire may not be straightforward just for now, but you’ll get there with a little work.


The Moon spends the day in your creative sector, dear Cancer, which can be emotionally freeing in many ways. Look for ways to relieve stress, and pay close attention to communications that might point you in the right direction towards healing. As the day advances, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that tends to add some strain or worry to the day’s energy. While you’re often inspired by beliefs, ideas, music, and literature these days, you can feel like someone is putting a damper on your plans or is overly critical today. There may be a previously neglected area of your life that now seems necessary to revisit. Things may feel slow and long just for now, but efforts to improve your life, even in small ways, can have a wonderful impact on the future. Keeping things simple can ultimately speed things up, even if it feels that you’re backtracking at the moment.


The Moon aligns with retrograde Mercury in your sector of home and family, dear Leo, and it’s a strong time for calling up important memories and enjoying some reminisce. It’s a good “ideas” day, particularly about your personal life and long-term plans to boost your security or family feelings. There can be pleasant conversations that soothe and help you center yourself. Still, we’re heading toward a Sun-Saturn square, reminding you of a constraint or reality and testing whether current plans or endeavors are strong. Responsibilities or problems can seem a little more burdensome now, but it’s a good idea to view any apparent setbacks as opportunities to make changes before moving forward. Through them, you may discover things you’ve overlooked. If you’ve been overdoing your studies or personal interests to the detriment of your work or health, you might now seek a balance or do some catch-up work to get back on track.


You can enjoy a buzz of ideas around you today, dear Virgo, but it’s best not to feel pressured to make sense of it all as there are still some missing puzzle pieces. As the Sun heads into a square to Saturn today, obstacles or your responsibilities can seem to magnify, taking on more significance. A roadblock related to a love relationship, a relationship with a child, or a creative project can arise or feel difficult to surmount. Even a setback can lead to a positive step concerning long-term happiness, however, as is usually the case with transits involving Saturn. You’re learning to look out for your “future self” and understanding more about what you need in the long run. Others may not be as forthcoming, warm, or expressive, which can feel a little cold but could also allow you enough space to discover resources you may not have known you had.


The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, dear Libra, and you continue to go within for some healing introspection. As much as you may want to now, it’s important not to rush a financial or intimate matter. Also today, Pluto ends its retrograde cycle that lasted over five months. The shift itself can feel a little dramatic, or you can feel pressure as it happens this week. However, things will soon take off, particularly in financial, domestic, and family matters. Your relationships with family and family roles are changing, and your determination to resolve challenges is building. Motivation and take-charge energy increases. Acknowledge the need to make changes and improvements for best results now, and own it! Home-related projects might unblock or gain momentum. Letting go of something that’s been dragging you down may be part of this energy.


The Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re in good shape for taking care of details. Relationships and your social needs come into stronger focus as the day advances. It’s a good time of the lunar month for giving close relationships special attention. You’re seeking more balance and perhaps some feedback. It can be stimulating and rather straightforward to come to a nice you-me balance in your relationships today. Others appreciate your sincerity. A theme of cooperation, friendliness, and openness is with you, although it can be difficult to relax your mind later today. It may be best to avoid setting things in stone. Aim to take your time digesting everything before making conclusions.



Earlier today is good for entertainment and a playful, cooperative mood, dear Sagittarius, but you prefer not to idle as the day advances. A more purposeful mindset kicks in with the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house. You’re ready to put the work in with the Moon’s move into your work and health sector for a couple of days. You can quite enjoy yourself as you take care of things. It’s a fine day for easy productivity. As much as the urge to get cracking on duties, chores, work, or health routines is with you, there can be some doubts later today. You can quickly tire of anything that feels run-of-the-mill or lacking in magic and poetry at the moment with Mercury challenged. Look for creative solutions since it can be hard to focus on priorities if you have too many of them.



You’re inclined to keep to yourself early day, dear Capricorn, but grow into a desire to share or express yourself. Fortunately, you’re received well. You tend to seek more interaction with the Moon’s move into Taurus and your solar fifth house. The Moon transits a sector of the chart for only two to three days, but it can serve to remind you of important needs. This particular transit encourages attention to self-expression, creativity, fun, pleasure, and leisure or entertainment. More than usual, you’re emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. Venus harmonizes with the Moon, Saturn, and Chiron, boosting your social confidence and your personal outlook. You could be itching to break out of your usual schedules and habits. Later today, your attention span may be short, so aim to avoid taking on too much. Take this time to understand yourself and your feelings, but avoid making big decisions now.



You can find yourself busy although not very focused as the Moon finishes up its transit of your communications sector today, dear Aquarius. The Moon then enters your solar fourth house, and you crave more quiet, calm, comfort, and familiarity. You’re in particularly good shape for bringing more balance to your domestic world, especially with help from Venus. Pleasurable, restful, and simple activities are tonics for you now. Finding your center is important at this point in the lunar month. Domestic issues tend to override other concerns as the day advances. Because you’re particularly sensitive to chaotic environments, a Mercury-Chiron aspect coming into play tonight can put a damper on your outlook temporarily. Letting go of a tendency to overthink can be hard to do, but worth the effort.


A practical frame of mind continues early day as the Moon finishes up its transit of your solar second house, dear Pisces. With this transit, you tend to prefer keeping things status quo, although the energy of yesterday’s Full Moon is stirring a desire to make improvements. As the day advances, things pick up pace with the Moon’s move into your communications sector. Venus has just begun its transit of your partnership sector, helping you attract helpful or pleasant connections. Today’s good for satisfying conversations and interesting ideas. You’re inclined to want to reach out. A bond might strengthen through sincere communication. It can be a time of making peace with someone. Mental disconnects or doubts later today can slow you down just a little, but you’ll benefit from doing so.
