SHARE Horoscope for Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Keep an eye your bank account, your cash flow, your money transactions as well as your possessions because something unusual could affect these areas. You might find money; you might lose money. Protect what you own from loss.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A close friend or partner might throw you a curveball, or at least say or do something that surprises you. Guard against knee-jerk reactions. Give yourself a moment to process whatever happens so that your response is exactly what you want it to be.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Mercury retrograde is taking its toll on your efficiency at your job and on anything that you do. Goofy mistakes, delays, errors, mixed-up communications, late deliveries — you name it. Expect the unexpected today.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Parents should be extra vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Meanwhile, social events might be canceled or delayed. Alternatively, you might get a surprise invitation somewhere. Today is a crapshoot.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A surprise or disruption might occur at home. Possibly, a small appliance might break down or a minor breakage could occur. Something will happen that you did not expect. Let’s hope it’s a pleasant surprise! A box of chocolates at your door? (One can always hope.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because surprises and unexpected events, which include cancellations and delays, might be the kind of distraction that trigger an accident for you. Therefore, be vigilant. Stay on target. Stay in work mode.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Checks in the mail are late now and delays regarding financial matters are par for the course because of Mercury retrograde. Today you might experience a surprise related to something that you own, or your cash flow. Go slowly and take care of everything. Keep your eyes open.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with those who are closest to you might have an upset today, or, at best, a surprise. Someone might demand more freedom in the relationship? You might learn some unexpected information? The key is not to overreact and do something that you will regret.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a restless day for you. It’s frustrating because Mercury retrograde is taking place in a hidden part of your chart, which means you feel out of control and at the whim of unexpected events. Today in particular, you will encounter some surprises. (Keep dark chocolate handy.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

An old friend (or perhaps someone you knew before from a group) might throw you a curveball today or surprise you in some way. Be ready for this. However, you don’t have to let someone else dictate your agenda, do you? Stay in charge of your life. Choose to do what you want to do.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Relations with parents, bosses, teachers and the police are dicey today. Someone might do or say something that catches you off guard. Don’t overreact and shoot from the hip. Think about your response and how you want to be perceived. Stay in control.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be careful because this is an accident-prone day for your sign because something surprising or unexpected could affect your daily routine. It could be news from the media or news from afar? Someone you haven’t seen for a while might be in touch? Allow extra time in your day so that you have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Michael McKean (1947) shares your birthday. You are trustworthy, dependable and loyal to loved ones. It’s encouraging to see that your hard work will start to pay off this year! Channel your energy and focus on building solid foundations now and for the future. Work with purpose. Physical exercise will be important, which is why you might want to explore something physical that you enjoy doing.
