Horoscopes Friday 20th October 2023
Aries 21 March - 20 April
As the Sun and Mercury continue their journey through your sector of relating, an edgy and intense aspect can inspire you to clear the air. If you do, then be prepared for deep-seated feelings to emerge. This is not the time to hold back, but to allow the process to happen for as long as is necessary. Talking to someone you trust could help things along, leaving you at peace.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
It might be hard to feel any enthusiasm for a project, especially if your attention is focused on something much more interesting. But with key planets working on your behalf, you'll benefit from making the effort. The outcome looks to be crucial to your plans for the long-term, so go for it, even if you find it deadly dull. Promise yourself a reward once it's done, then make a start.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Everyone seems to have advice for you, but is it worth taking, Gemini? Mercury's edgy angle hints that it might not be as innocent or helpful as it first seems. With manipulative energies on the go, they may be trying to steer you in the direction they want you to go. Listen to what they have to say, but consider doing what feels best to you. There are too many reasons not to.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Is an emotional block preventing you from taking a relationship further? With intense energies on the go, something could be holding you back. Perhaps this person reminds you of someone you once dated, and it's hard to shake off this impression. Have a think about this, Cancer. If you understand the root cause and can resolve it, things will start to progress in the right direction.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Something that was important to you, may no longer seem like such a great idea. The enthusiasm with which you approached it might have withered away. And now you want out. It's easy to cut your losses and run, but is it wise, Leo? You may be experiencing a few bumps in the road now, but with some savvy handling you can soon sort these out. The rewards will be waiting for you.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The Sun/Pluto angle suggests that your feelings could be overwhelming, especially if you're unhappy about a financial matter. Whatever happens keep your cool, and it will be easier for everything to get sorted out. Mind, with a strong focus on the sign of Scorpio, you'll be in the mood to drive a hard bargain. If you really want something, you can have it if you push for it.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You may have a chance to rectify something that went badly wrong, Libra. As the Sun and chatty Mercury angle towards Pluto, you can set the record straight. If you were blamed for something you didn't do, now is your chance to prove your innocence. You'll need evidence. But your horoscope reveals that the way you feel right now, you'll be able to find plenty to back your cause. Stand up for your rights!
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You'll feel the heat today, as the Sun and Mercury square-off with potent Pluto, putting you under pressure to do something. This may be related to an issue that needs closure and that you're keen to see the back of, if you knew how to go about it. Despite your usual no-nonsense approach, you may not want to upset someone. Even so, if you want to resolve this, you'll need to be honest.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Finding it difficult to get along with someone? If you usually have no problem, it may be that an awkward Pluto influence is making it hard to agree on anything. With an edgy aspect continuing for a few days more, be patient, Archer. It might be that you both want the same thing, but are coming at it from different angles. Would it be worth compromising to end this impasse?
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Are you being too hard on yourself? The current setup suggests that much as you might want to ease off the accelerator, you feel you don't deserve to. Make time if necessary, as you need this opportunity to switch off and recharge. You'll come back to your projects and tasks much refreshed and find that they get done faster and with more creativity and zest, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The rewards for your hard work may be showing up, Aquarius. But if you don't enjoy it, victory could seem hollow. You need more than material goods to feel content, and this is what the current aspects might be driving home. A sense of fulfilment is crucial if you are to continue along your present path. If you have this, great! If not, consider changing tack and following your heart.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Need to make peace with someone, Pisces? If so, you'll become aware of just how important this is and how your plans may be put on hold if you don't. Whatever the nature of the issue between you, take the initiative and be the one to make amends, as it will pave the way for a better relationship. It might take a while for things to get back to normal, but it's a great start.
