SHARE Horoscope for Friday, Oct. 23, 2020

Moon Alert

After 7:30 a.m. Chicago time, there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will be more intense about everything in the next four weeks. This bodes well for those of you who need to do research or tackle a job that requires focus, endurance and lots of energy. Try not to second-guess yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For the next four weeks, the sun will be opposite your sign. (This is the only time all year this occurs.) This means you will need more sleep. This also means you will be more focused on partnerships and close friendships.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will be keen to get better organized in the next four weeks. Suddenly, you want to be effective, efficient and productive! You also want to improve your health because you are on a kick to turn over a new leaf!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Lucky you! The next four weeks will be more light-hearted and fun-loving! Enjoy social outings, the arts, sports and fun activities with kids. Romance might blossom, possibly with someone from your past. Hmmm.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Home, family and your private life are your focus for the next four weeks. Enjoy this chance to cocoon at home. Putter around and do minor repairs that you’ve been meaning to get to. Expect to hear from relatives you haven’t heard from in a while.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because suddenly, you have things to do, places to go and people to see! Your schedule will be busier with errands and appointments as well as increased reading, writing and studying. Get busy!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Expect to focus on money, earnings, possessions and assets more than usual in the next four weeks. You might also give more thought to your values in life. In other words, what really matters? Money delays and late checks in the mail are classic.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The sun is in your sign for the next four weeks giving you a chance to rejuvenate yourself. (This is a marvelous opportunity!) The sun will attract people and fortunate circumstances to you, which is a good thing because meanwhile, you have to deal with Mercury retrograde in your sign. Aaggh!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because your personal year is ending, the next four weeks are the perfect time to set goals before your new year begins. Goals will help make future decisions easier, and they also give you a sense of purpose. Take some quiet time to do this.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will be more popular in the next four weeks. You will feel a strong urge to reach out to others, and, vice versa, people will be attracted to you. Old friends from the past are back in the picture as well as old contacts you haven’t seen for a while. This is a good time to think about your future.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The sun will be at the top of your chart for the next four weeks. (This is the only time all year this happens.) When it occurs, symbolically it means you are being thrust in a flattering spotlight! Bosses, parents and teachers will admire you. Use this propitious time to go after what you want.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel, adventure and a chance to do something to expand your horizons will appeal to you in the next four weeks. Some of you will explore opportunities in publishing, the media, the law and medicine. You might also think of courses and further training you might get. Ideas?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Ryan Reynolds (1976) shares your birthday. You are friendly and socially aware. You are full of ideas and quite entrepreneurial. Exciting news! You’re entering a year of new beginnings! This means it’s time to identify goals to determine what you want for yourself in the next few years. Be pro-active and physically energetic about going after what you want. Just do it!
