October 19, 2020
There can be much to enjoy with your work, chores, or a special project now, dear Aries. You're enjoying a little more optimism about your career or overall life direction or positive feedback. You're inclined to want to take action on a matter rather than hold onto it, which can mean talking through a problem or releasing pent-up worries or frustrations. Meaningful work is a real possibility now. Even so, it may not always be easy to feel in sync, both on the inside as your desires seem to conflict with one another, and externally with others. This makes it hard to make satisfying decisions or plans without some feeling that you may be missing out elsewhere. Entertaining unusual ideas and thinking outside the box work, but hunches may not lead you in the right direction, so take your time with new thoughts and observations.

October 2020 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Aries:
The month ahead can bring a strong focus on relationships, dear Aries. There can be ups and downs in a partnership or close friendship, but ultimately a good time for sorting out problems.
October begins and ends with a Full Moon! The Full Moon on the 1st is in your sign. Epiphanies occur now–your feelings are coming to full bloom. It's a time when things come to light about you, so it's best to keep some things on the down-low this week. If you want certain things to gain exposure, this can be the time but do consider that with Mars retrograde in your sign, you may not be understood the way you want to be understood.
Venus heads into your work and health sector on the 2nd, where it will stay until the 27th. You're ready to create a better environment in your daily life. You might partner up to get work done or to accomplish fitness goals. Enjoying your work, chores, or routines can figure strongly.
While your ruling planet, Mars, is retrograde all month, and Mercury joins the retrograde club from the 13th onwards, some areas of your life seem to be unblocking, slowly but surely. Major ambitions and life goals or career prospects can be in lively focus. You're taking steps to improve your position.
Retrograde Mars does suggest that there's a lot to unpack, improve, and edit before you truly feel free and ready to move on. Your desire to assert your independence or go your own way runs more deeply than usual, but the pressures to keep cool or stick to the rules are especially active now, causing some tension or a dilemma. Consider the possibility that dialing down your ambitions just a little could reduce excess stress. It may very well be that you can do so without loss. There can be times when you feel blocked or uncertain about how to go about pursuing your desires or fulfilling your wishes. Avoid pushing matters, but do pay attention to strong feelings.
Regarding attitudes toward daily affairs, routines, health and wellness, money, or personal possessions, you're feeling some real progress. You're open to new and improved approaches. Bright ideas can figure strongly. Letting go of fear can open up creativity and improve your health! Combining work and play comes naturally and works well for you. There can be an exciting find or purchase, or the excitement of redesigning or reorganizing your personal space.
You may benefit from past work, good deeds, and experience, particularly in your profession. Finding moments to detox, relax, decompress, detach, and rest can improve your mood and attitude toward work when you get back to it. If you provide services, you're in a great position to receive positive feedback.
Mercury is retrograde starting on the 13th, and while there can be some slowdowns, you'll find the second half of October useful for reviewing and revising certain matters. You could discover that you're frequently turning to the past to understand the present better. This is a beneficial process, in fact. It's best to budget rather than do too much spending and borrowing at this time.
Tensions can prompt the need for a fresh start or brand new approach with partnerships, close connections, negotiations, and relationship goals. The New Moon on the 16th can help clear the slate.
New thinking on financial matters, recent decisions, or intimate relationships is especially notable around the 25th. This can be about moving along a new path, but it can also be about putting a mental focus behind you, particularly if you've been dwelling on a past relationship or problem that is draining you of energy and keeping you stuck in the past.
Even if some communication channels seem less effective in the second half of October, the situation can motivate you to find new and creative ways to get your message across.
The Full Moon on the 31st can bring on news or realizations about money and resources that change things up. Unpredictability can throw you a bit off-center, but this is also a highly creative, stimulating time for connecting with your needs and wants.
This Year: Aries
2020 Yearly Horoscope Overview
There continues to be a strong focus on your career or life path goals, dear Aries, and the pressure is on!
With Saturn heading out of Capricorn this year, however, and Jupiter in the sign most of 2020, things ARE getting easier, or at the least, more pleasurable. In fact, you may very well enjoy your ambitious side, career, professional life, or managerial position far better this year. It’s a time for embracing desires and ambitions you may never have known you had, and going for it! It’s not going to be the same-old, same-old process, however. You are doing your professional and public life quite differently, and you are capable of tremendous success. The old way of doing things is pretty much dead and buried as the year progresses. It’s time for reinventing yourself.
It’s very appropriate to push your career forward this year and to put more of yourself into your work. The extra effort will be rewarded. Even so, when Jupiter moves into your social sector in December, you’ll feel a little more relieved, less pressured, and more connected with others. During this cycle, you’re appreciated for how well you get along with others more than how you’re performing or what you’re accomplishing. This is a forward-moving, optimistic time, even if there will be times when you’re a little overscheduled in your social world.
Keep in mind that even though Saturn and Jupiter move out of your career and reputation sector in December, Pluto stays, so it’s important to bring continued focus to getting the career that truly suits you and for pushing your practical and professional interests forward. The summer can bring the return of a previous condition related to your larger life plans and goals or career, and it’s time to put this problem or situation to rest.
The year is a powerful one for your professional or public life in particular. By mid-year, you’ll have largely figured out how to handle your burgeoning ambitions or worldly responsibilities and how to balance these pursuits with attention to your personal life and domestic world. Caring for family can be a strong theme, and with all that you’re juggling, you’re going to need to be creative and attentive.
The second half of the year asks you to pay special attention to how you communicate, connect, and present yourself. Polishing these things will go a long way towards your happiness and sense of fulfillment.
Mars is your ruler, and it spends the second half of the year in your sign! This is a much longer stay than usual considering Mars typically spends about 6-7 weeks in a sign. The reason for this extended visit is a retrograde cycle that occurs from September 9th to November 13th. At times during this cycle, you could feel as if you’re spinning your wheels or wasting time and energy. You may second-guess certain plans, feel some decrease in motivation or confidence, or wrestle with complicated desires. It’s a time for learning about resentment and anger, as well as your approach to asserting yourself and pursuing your goals, and how you might manage these things more to your advantage. From mid-November forward, you’ll be righting your path, understanding what you want, and finding a direct route to your objectives. This Mars retrograde is more personal than usual, and it’s strong for reorienting and redirecting you. Chances are high that you’ve been overdoing things and now you need to take some time to catch your breath!
Use the retrograde period to really get in touch with what motivates and drives you, and then put your plans into action when Mars is direct and approaching its regular speed in December.
This can also be a time for boosting a relationship with a sibling, classmate, or neighbor. There will be more to this story in 2021, but for now, things are moving in the direction of more involvement and of improvement.
As Saturn transitions out of your career sector this year, you’ll feel some pressure to perform subside. You’re still paying extra attention to your higher and long-term goals, but with less heaviness. Saturn moves into your solar eleventh house from March 21-July 1, and then from December 17th forward for a more consistent stay. With this transit, the emphasis is on more meaningful, streamlined, or business relationships, depending on your current situation.
However this energy plays out, you’re taking your associations and friendships more seriously with this transit that will last until March 2023. It’s a fabulous time, in fact, for forming a reliable connection or for quality business networking. With Saturn in supportive aspect to your sign, too, it’s a time of feeling more like you are on solid ground.
With some of the planetary pressure on its way out in 2020, there’s more room for enjoyment. Financial ups and downs or uncertainties this year ultimately lead you to discover unique and creative ways to make and manage money.
