Your weekly horoscope is here, for the week commencing October 4 2020

Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Sunday October 4th to Saturday 10th, 2020. 

LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)

Wouldn’t it be great to be a politician? Hear me out… while we all wrestle with uncertainties, it seems that once you’ve climbed up the political ranks you never have to worry about being wrong. As a Libran, your sense of self-importance is well under control. If you courageously own up to a mistake, you’ll go further on the path to success. It’s a week of special cosmic activity.

SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)

Sceptics believe that if two people feel they’ve reached a mutual understanding, it’s probably because one doesn’t “get” the other’s point of view. You’ve invested energy into negotiating a truce between people you care about, but are concerned it’s about to give way. Despite pessimistic opinions, the agreement can be reached. Have faith in the process. There’s much to look forward to.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)

We may be always chatting and texting one another, but how often do we truly communicate? There are several bits of news you’re not sharing with people who ought to know. You’re being economical with the truth. Yet there’s a good chance that your lack of transparency is visible and others are withholding information from you. It’s time to shun the diplomacy and be more honest.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)

Everyone loves the excitement of the new. We enjoy it almost as much as we love the familiar. But at the moment, you’re not sure what you want. An adventure beckons, but it will mean sacrificing some security. And to feel more secure, you’ll have to abandon some of your freedom. Fortunately, you are resilient. When the going gets tough, you get going. Dive in; trust your instincts.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21–Feb 19)

When you’re being offered the chance to go a long way in these challenging times, it seems likely this will take the form of an inner journey. This week brings travel into your imagination. Recent events may have caused you to stifle a creative idea and quash your ingenuity, but as Mercury links with your ruling planet, Uranus, it brings a welcome way to widen horizons. It’s time to move on.

PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)

Some people believe if they hide away from trouble, it won’t find them. Other folk view it with a different mindset; they look for it so they can tackle issues. Don’t worry, I’m not saying trouble is heading your way. It’s more that your approach to a drama will affect its outcome. As far as possible, let discretion be your guide. And if restraint is not appropriate, be steered by your ingenuity.

ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)

My job is to give you a glimpse of what’s coming up in your life, though this week you are better placed to see the future than I am. One aspect of it feels a little too close for comfort. If you keep moving on the same track, it’s obvious what will happen. The problem is you’re no longer sure that you want it to unfold that way. Just be honest about what you want. The truth is your friend.

TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)

It seems there’s no escape from stories about the inhumane things we do; it can be a steady and disheartening stream. But it’s important to remember events only become newsworthy when they are unusual. Most people are compassionate and understanding. You have been the recipient of kindness recently. This week brings the opportunity to share similar generosity.

GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)

Our views of the past are influenced by what’s happening in the present. We all interpret situations through our filters. And we all have an inner historian, who looks back and edits experiences to suit our current circumstances. As time moves on, our emotional responses also change. Where we once felt anger or sadness, we may come to feel acceptance. But this week will be good.

CANCER (Jun 23–Jul 23)

Everybody likes to feel reassured. We all desire to be comforted and treasured. Yet sadly, there are few of us who regularly have these basic needs fulfilled. Although we find it relatively easy to offer them to children, we find it harder to share softer sides of ourselves with adults. Fortunately, there are times when the cosmos gives a warm embrace. Despite changes this week, you’ll get the support and strength you’re needing.

LEO (Jul 24–Aug 23)

In those moments when life presents us with impossibilities, it also offers chances to experience its magic. When we feel as if we’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, we can find a way to escape. It’s almost as if something invisibly guides us to safety. If you are approaching this week with anxiety, you have nothing to fear. There’s magic in the air and it will be easier than you think.

VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)

When bizarre things keep occurring, we start to accept them as being normal. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that we should treat them as acceptable. The link between Uranus and your ruling planet highlights an area of life that is beginning to feel inescapable. It’s time to stand up for what feels right. I don’t suggest you confront anyone; resilience will help you achieve the right result.
