Your weekly horoscope is here, for the week commencing October 11 2020

Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Sunday October 11th to Saturday 18th, 2020. 

LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)

Are you too involved in a situation? Try looking at it dispassionately. Your ability to stand back and assess a situation is actually one of your strengths. Even when someone confides in you, you’re able to see both sides of the story. As the new moon forms in your sign, your determination to get to the root of the matter should be embraced. You are on the right track.

SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)

Have you ever been in such a hurry to get to your destination that you pass the turn you need? It’s always better to know why you’re doing what you’re doing rather than to simply advance further. This week, you may be feeling frustrated that the effort you’ve invested isn’t producing the expected results. You’ve set a process in motion; give it the time it needs to work.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)

It’s no wonder you need a break. You’ve been tried and tested for long enough. And because you’ve given so much of yourself, even the smallest drain on your energy reserves is enough to make you feel as if you’re being imposed upon. The good news is that this week brings relief. The new moon encourages you to release the fatigue and frustration undermining your usual optimism.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)

When it comes to determination, you’re hard to beat. So it’s unlike you to worry that you’ve set yourself an impossible challenge. Although experience proves that by continuing to take small steps you can make it to almost any destination, doubt is starting to affect your confidence. Remind yourself of why you’re doing what you’re doing. If you put your heart into this, you will succeed.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21–Feb 19)

It’s hard to imagine our lives without the internet and our mobile phones. What’s that? The world was a much happier place without the technical advancements we can’t live without? Absolutely! If you find yourself mourning the loss of something you’ve grown used to, perhaps it’s worth considering its loss may be no hardship at all. The new moon brings a potential transformation.

PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)

Even though you’re caught in an unfair situation, there’s no need to allow the disappointment to override your feelings this week. Your ruling planet Neptune’s influence encourages you to make the most of what’s unfolding, rather than focus on what’s not happening. This is exciting. If you hold your head high and keep boldly moving forward, you’ll soon reach happier times.

ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)

According to some, going on the attack is the best way to defend. And it’s not an illogical way to deal with difficult people. However, we’ve all had enemies who have become friends. So is it good practice to provoke others so we know what to expect if we fall out with them? Or is it realistic to say that if you look for trouble, it will always be found? Think positively this week.

TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)

Just because Mercury, the planet of communication, is turning retrograde, it doesn’t mean that a problem will become more bewildering. Conversely, the cosmos will offer you a chance to uncover vital information. As facts become clearer, you will be able to tackle difficulties and the rise in confidence will lead you towards a more secure future. Changes is afoot.

GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)

It’s said that on the high plateaus of the Himalayas, spiritual people are able to levitate and conjure up objects out of nothing. Can these extraordinary acts be classed as miracles? Maybe. As unusual as such sights may be, we’re surrounded by miraculous events every day. Life on this spinning ball of rock is a miracle in itself. As your ruler turns retrograde, work your own magic.

CANCER (Jun 23–Jul 23)

We rarely respect the wisest folk among us. Instead, we heap praise on people whose work is just above average. I call this “short neck syndrome”. Rather than craning our heads to see the magnificent tall flowers that tower over us, we focus on the plants that are just near our head. It’s not compliments you seek this week. It is recognition as well as respect. As long as you’re happy to share success, these wishes will come true.

LEO (Jul 24–Aug 23)

If you know how to ride a bike, then you probably started with stabilisers to keep you steady as you go. When they were removed, you would’ve wobbled as you tried to find your balance. But then, you would’ve mastered it. If you feel as if you’re struggling this week, remember such past triumphs. You’ve been practising for long enough and are about ready to fly.

VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)

With Venus (love and abundance) in your sign, you’re doing well and have much to be pleased with. It’s time to have faith and let go of fear. Although that is easier said than done, you’re doing exceptionally well considering what you are dealing with. This week, as long as you trust the choices you’ve made, you can confidently move on. Doubt is normal, just don’t let it dictate your next move.
