SHARE Horoscope for Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 4:30 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a tough day dealing with bosses, parents, teachers and the police. They will harsh your buzz because you feel you have to toe the line. Be reassured that this is a brief influence right now. That light at the end of the tunnel is not a train!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Rules and restrictions from foreign countries or from far away might affect your health, your job and what you want to do. (Might feel depressing.) The thing to remember is this is a temporary restriction. Even a hurricane doesn’t last a day.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Difficulties with your kids and romantic relationships are likely. You might not have the funding or support to do what you want to do, and this is depressing. This is just a temporary situation. Relax. Courage.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be patient today! It’s tough dealing with family and partners. You feel your hands are tied or that the weight of the world is on your shoulders. (Do you know the words to the “Song of the Volga Boatman”?) This is a temporary restriction — relax.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today might seem restrictive to you because you want to break free from your rut, but you can’t. Certain barriers and serious responsibilities are holding you back. Make changes where you can, and accept what you cannot change. This is a temporary restriction.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Some days it’s easy to be positive, and other days, negative thoughts and feelings of inadequacy can bury us. The important thing to know is that when things are tough and we feel down, it’s temporary. Life will change. It always does. Ironically, the only constant is change.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Responsibilities that you feel with home and family or dealing with an authority figure are building up. Today you feel overwhelmed! Hey — relax! This is a temporary dark cloud on your horizon. This crunchy period will pass (especially if you drink a lot of water.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. But this is because your mindset is overwhelmed by responsibilities and possibilities. At another time, you would not feel like this. It’s amazing what a difference there is between a positive mind and a worried mind! Courage!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Money worries might get you down. Or you might be worried about taking care of something that you own. Someone might have turned off the tap? Or it’s that feeling that there’s too much month left at the end of the money. Scarlett O’Hara was right, “Tomorrow is another day.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a challenging day with authority figures. You feel forced to say or do something you don’t want to do. Your hands are tied. Perhaps others have power over you and you must accept this. Remember: At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might feel frustrated with social media, politics, religion, racial issues and matters connected with foreign powers. You feel helpless. And with that feeling there is discouragement. Yet, you know intellectually that this is a temporary setback. Don’t worry.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Restrictions pertaining to debt, shared property, inheritances and also the responsibilities that you have for others make you feel like something is holding you back from going out there and being yourself. Self-gratification conflicts with duty. But this will change for the better. It will.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Joe Morton (1947) shares your birthday. Others appreciate your intellect and thoughtfulness. You are dedicated and loyal to your loved ones. This is an exciting year of change and new opportunities! You will encounter adventure and stimulating situations. If possible, explore opportunities to travel and expand your world through learning. Welcome change! Let your personal freedom be your goal this year.
