Now is the time to have confidence in expressing what you love and what you despise, regardless of any criticism you receive. You could be in the frame of mind to think intensely about your own incentives and what is occurring in your life; possibly to the point of obsession. Consider and review your mental and physical wellbeing where you can be destructive. Also there can be an immense focus on what is usually kept to yourself, which can affect your self-esteem and how you interact with people.

It’s important to treat these relationships responsibly and not to take them for granted or neglect them. Sensible choices are prominent when using or managing financial or material resources. If money is spent it will be used on what is essential or of practical use; don’t expect any extravagant expenses.

If you want to work hard at your relationship or to gain a relationship, a careful assessment of what you need to do and what you want from them helps you gain control over this area in your life.

Brooding over issues that have been on your mind is at odds with the need to break through and create new ground. Intense emotion has a potent effect on the ability to think straight, which may lead to comments or decisions that usually wouldn’t be considered. Information may come from unexpected sources that could affect a part or parts of your life where there has been consistent stability until now. You will do well to look at the hidden depths of what you learn or what you are told. What you discover could come as a surprise or a bit of a shock, but you will prefer to know the truth than be kept in the dark.

Common sense is dominant when making financial choices, mainly with expenditure and investments. If money is spent it is done so with care and sound judgement; value for money is the main motive. Purchases are focused on what is needed rather than what has temporary novelty value.

Retrograde Mars at 19 degrees 27 minutes Aries is square Jupiter at 19 degrees 27 minutes Capricorn at 5.46 am GMT 6.46 am BST 19th October 2020.

Although there is the drive to go out and start something new or make your mark on the world, you may not have enough energy to make it happen. The range of what you believe you can achieve is much bigger than what is realistic and within your capabilities. Acting on what is viewed as a stroke of good luck may not be as rewarding as expected. Those who are wiser or who consider themselves to have better judgement than you could hold you back, which is frustrating. But in the near future, after Mars has turned direct, will appear to be intended to prevent you from doing something you will later regret.

An appreciation for being careful with your money is at odds with how it is spent, due to unrealistic and emotional desires that overwhelm common sense. If there are challenges caused by deception, confusion or sacrifices that are made which aren’t appreciated, anxiety is felt as a result of unpleasant experiences that occur. It could be difficult to escape from them and as a response you may be choosy about how friendly you are to certain individuals in the future.

Creating your own barriers for yourself won’t be hard but it should be avoided. Whilst you can make every effort to alleviate the drudgery of fulfilling personal obligations and duties they may be unpleasant but they have to be dealt with as they are unavoidable. If you give in to indecision you could get stuck in a rut that will take hard work and perseverance to surmount. The more you procrastinate the worse it will be.

The Sun at 22 degrees 31 minutes Libra is square Pluto at 22 degrees 31 minutes Capricorn 15th October 2020.

It’s a struggle to have a balanced view of life when there are drastic changes that take place with the purpose to overcome restrictions and self-doubts. Indecision and a lack of direction about what to do in your best interest can make it difficult to persevere with deep personal psychological issues. It’s not the time to work on important and long lasting processes to eliminate what is no longer wanted; there could be too much to take into consideration. Also you may not want to use your strength to deal with disruption at the moment.

The Sun at 21 degrees 5 minutes Libra is opposition retrograde Mars at 21 degrees 5 minutes Aries at 12.27 am BST 14th October 2020.

The energy to assert yourself could be restrained, so you will have to balance your options to do what is most effective. Do the best you can to be calm and seek the peace you need for your physical wellbeing. Don’t get drawn into involvement in what makes other people angry if it doesn’t directly affect you. It’s not up to you to fight another person’s battles if they’re more than capable of fighting them without you. Although this transit can be difficult it can be useful too. Assess what annoys you or ignites your wrath and how it affects your overall health and outlook on life, to see how it can be put into perspective.
