Capricorn Forecast for October 2020
(December 22 – January 19)
October brings contentious matters and big emotions to the fore with all the zodiac signs as well as an area of ease. For Goats, October starts off with riled feelings regarding both home and relationship matters, particularly as you may face a setback with a particular ambition that could involve a trip or schooling or connecting with someone over a distance. This could revert to some old dealing with an advisor regarding your (or this other person’s) erratic presence on a team and unwillingness to actually communicate. If you believe that your looming presence is enough to get your point across without communicating, there will likely be no response.
A total aside but it looks like your domestic sphere has been particularly noisy since July or so and much of October reflects upon events that transpired during the 3rd week of July. It’s not all bad. It’s just that something underhanded and unpleasant transpired back in July that is finally getting addressed, and as a result of July, there’s been more noise within your space which has made it that much harder to Get Things Done.
At the same time, you’re likely to experience an echo of events that first transpired toward late February 2020. Progress will be measured by a snail’s pace. In all likelihood, you cannot help feeling a bit sour about being restricted at the moment. You want to make things happen but these things that you are trying to make happen are simply not ready for you or else they require more effort than you’re currently putting in.
Conversely, let’s say you are dedicated and have been putting the actual work in: this is going to be a long slog and patience may reward you. December of 2020 marks a 2.5-year long period that will demand that you pull your finances together responsibly.
October first marks a 2-week trend along these lines that indicates Goats are likely to adopt persuasive measures, or this might not even be about you as much as your attempt trying to tip-toe through two authority figures who are going at it, mostly regarding your future well-being. In any case, the first week is particularly uncomfortable and requires willingness to dig in and work hard these autumn months on any new activity you launched toward the end of September, especially if you hope to see it pay off toward December.
All the zodiac signs have been dealing this year with an area of uncertainty, and, for Goats, much of this appears to relate specifically to uncertainties within your locale or with siblings or simply questions on how to communicate clearly. You could be distracted by global news headlines and trying your best to regain some semblance of a focused schedule. It feels like music, art, volunteer work or simply Netflixing yourself to death offers some comfort to help fill in the void.
October 8th indicates a disruption when it comes to team travel or your schooling schedule. Or, this could imply quick, last minute travel where you feel compelled to press a matter persuasively in order to achieve a certain end goal.
The one area of life that comes with ease this month appears to come with risk-taking, a recreational sport, a creative endeavor or even a romantic relationship. Perhaps an old situation or effort along these lines didn’t work out because it feels like you were trying to force it. You can always move along to the next with ease or take the next step to make it happen, if it matters. The person you are negotiating with happens to be preoccupied with their own travails.
October 10th indicates electronic communication with someone who is located at a distance. This could involve landing advice on a creative or romantic effort. It also indicates learning more about a hobby or special interest that boosts value to your career. Under ordinary circumstances, it would suggest travel with children.
All the signs are facing a spell of high expectations at this time, and for Goats, this translates to reining in getting ahead of yourself when it comes to any promises made by a boss, parent, or authority figure, especially if it comes to a work prospect that involves writing, teaching or travel.
Mercury retrogrades between October 13-November 3rd, indicating a turn away from social networking to review a work matter or a particular ambition. It’s on hold. It could be that someone you worked with in the past shows up. If there’s any offer on the table, give it time before seizing upon it because some aspect of it is up for revision until after November 3rd. The same applies to any educational, travel or legal matter. Hold off until the top of next month because there’s no adequate way to force the issue.
October 16th marks a 4-week trend that underscores the previous paragraph. It indicates a fresh start on negotiations that essentially stalls through mid-November. Of course, you’d like to control every bit of the negotiation, which is a contentious matter at best, one that may prove disappointing.
If you have a prospective job offer, hold off until after the first week of November, especially as mid-October appears to be a bit deflating and requires a lot of hard work. The positive point in all of this is that Goats do land great advice from someone who is sympathetic. If there’s a trip or a pleasant new thing to learn for work, that is one of your joys this month.
The days surrounding the 19th bring a return of the issue that cropped up during the first week of October regarding a sudden trip or disruption. You are at your most persuasive toward the days surrounding 21st of October and should feel pleasantly accomplished at this time. In the days surrounding October 24th, if feelings get ruffled with a partner, it could regard a certain level of carelessness and sloppy actions on both your parts. Haste makes waste!
Halloween this year dishes up a blue (second) full moon with a trend that extends into the middle of November, which for Goats, translates to the need to drop a goal in order to focus on helping a child or a romantic partner—it could mean surprises for the child of a romantic partner, too. For some Goats, it implies a potential for pregnancy. For other Goats, it implies an opportunity for a child to join a new team. For some, this indicates letting go of one goal in order to focus on a new creative or speculative venture.
If you are dating and single, this looks like an impromptu gathering or communication that allows you to spend some fun time with a person from your past whom you once worked with…yet there’s a disruptive, unexpected quality to this that makes it difficult to call.
