Your weekly horoscope is here, for the week commencing October 25th 2020

Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Sunday October 25th to Saturday 31st, 2020. 

As October draws to a close we’re heading towards a breakthrough Blue Moon which aligns closely with innovative Uranus. The build up to this event brings moments of insight and understanding. As Mercury moves backwards and re-enters Libra, we need to look again at the important issues we have only superficial knowledge about. Venus’ return to its celestial home suggests that on closer inspection, precious knowledge can be gleaned that leads to a more optimistic and sociable future.

Herbal teas are calming. Yoga helps us relax. Meditation stops our minds from racing, and taking deep breaths enables us to lower our stress levels. Why is your prediction full of ideas that will help you to restore a sense of balance and wellbeing? Because as your ruler, Mars, continues its backwards movement in your sign, a growing sense of pressure is building. This week, as long as you stay calm and allow things to unfold, a dramatic moment will be followed by a delightful breakthrough.

Instead of bothering to read to the end of your prediction, just start running right now. If you find it hard to think and plan a route at the same time, why not try jogging on the spot? Expend some energy! Make an effort and show the universe that you’re determined to assert yourself and willing to make changes. And, in the unlikelihood that you still feel as if you’re stuck in a rut, you could just try harder. Or maybe not! Rather than pushing yourself this week, target the right thing, and stick to it.

Geminis are known for their ability to ask the questions no one else has thought of. You also have an aptitude for effortlessly steering conversations away from their original subject onto the topic that needs to be discussed. These strengths usually work to your advantage. Yet you’re not the only person who has such skills; in fact someone you share a passion with has a similar ability. If you stand back and let them lead the way this week, the resulting insight could help to make a dream come true.

Whilst it’s comforting to think that we live in an organised, orderly world, there are times when we’re forced to wake up and smell the coffee. We’re living on a spinning ball of rock in a cosmos that remains mysterious and unknown. We sail on unpredictable seas, catching waves and winds that take us to new shores. No wonder we sometimes feel buffeted and out of control. This week brings the reassurance that your recent decision was the right one. You’re in the right place, at the right time.

It’s not always easy to know whether you should stand up and be counted, or sit down and be counted upon. You’re a Leo; you’re not the kind of person who quietly accepts orders and does what they’re told to do. Yet you find yourself in an exceptional situation. These are sensitive times and you’re dealing with something that needs a very delicate touch. Trust your intuitive sense of timing this week. There’s no need to rush and your instincts will tell you whether to take action, or not.

You seek something that lies in the distance. Even though you doubt you’ll ever reach it, you can’t get it out of your mind and you can’t stop trying. You keep telling yourself that there must be other options and easier ways to make progress; but it’s as if you’re being pulled by an invisible thread. Since that’s the case, the distance that looms so large won’t be as long as you fear. Make the most of Venus before it leaves your sign; wave your wand. You can set an improvement into motion.

Lately you’ve felt as if you’re on a treadmill; life has been one long never-ending list of things to be done, goals to be reached and points to be proved. No wonder you’re feeling drained. The good news, as Venus enters your sign this week, is that the pressure is about to ease. As the sense of obligation that has been nagging at you is uplifted, you’ll find yourself in the luxurious position of having more time on your hands. Even the tiresome issue you’ve been dealing with won’t seem as problematic.

Although there’s something you want that you can’t have, there’s something else that you want that is attainable. So… what’s the problem? Surely you can just accept what’s within reach and put the other thing on hold for a while? If you’re feeling discontented, it’s because you don’t yet understand the impact the realistic option will have on your life. This week, even if you don’t feel like a winner, try to act as if you are. While it’s true that you don’t have everything you want, you’ve got a lot.

It’s not easy to have fun when we’re full of insecurities. We need to have a certain level of comfort and assurance before we can embrace any of the adventures life offers. You’ve been obliged to focus on taking care of some basic needs, and deal with pressing problems that needed to be resolved. Although there’s no guarantee that you’ve done all you need to do, your efforts have been effective. This week, you’ll be able to see the progress you’ve made, and find time to enjoy yourself.

There’s a specific reason why you’re following a certain plan. Just because you can’t see much in the way of progress doesn’t mean you need to change your approach. Good things take their own sweet time. And excellent things can take even longer to manifest. When you’re on top of the mountain, it’s easy to see the route to take you to where you want to go. It’s not so easy when you’re down in the valley. Yet, as events this week will show, you’re closer to your destination than you think.

When you were created, the celestial beings used up so much of their ‘smartness’ elixir that they had to watch how much they gave to other people. That’s why you’re so often right! Yet, maybe the rest of the world isn’t quite as unintelligent as it sometimes seems to be, and you’re not quite as clever as some folk seem to think! As long as you’re smart enough to be able to step back from an argument, and really listen to what others are trying to say, this will be a rewarding and affirming week.Feeling stressed and overloaded?

How do baby birds know how to fly? Do the adults instruct them in the art of aerodynamics? Are there tests to be done and exercises to be practised? Or do they just follow their instincts and know what to do? As an intuitive Piscean, you’re naturally aware that although information is important, there are times when you just need to follow your heart. Don’t succumb to anyone’s pressure and make an intellectual choice this week. You’ll do best if you trust (and follow) your feelings.
