Leo Forecast for October 2020
(July 23 – August 22)
You’ve got a lot on your mind this month with a crucial decision to make regarding earnings and finances–no easy task, particularly as it may require a swift, innovative change to how you earn. One chapter is coming to a close this month as a new one falls into place. October 1st marks a 2-week trend where you may be feeling at odds with forcing a work situation to happen yet all it seems to offer is resistance.
The resistant situation is not likely to show any signs of budging until later this year—or, there’s potential for an unexpected challenge and disruption for a coworker or close partner toward the end of January. For now, pursue what will come easier, as it looks like you have a new, healthy work prospect falling into place with the assistance of some people you’ve worked with in the past.
As early as 2019, your career has been in flux, depending on the one-off transaction, for better or for worse, filled with many organisational changes, not to mention abrupt departures and interruptions. A teaching or travel initiative may be off the table that you hoped to carry out with a friend or a team. Sometimes, it’s a wise no, which in this case, it is—because not everything you planned to do was (cough, erm, ahem) thought out well. Wait until after mid-November to re-attempt, but even then, your frustration level is bound to build up well into January before you feel fully free and independent from the constraints of this past year.
All the zodiac signs have been coping with a low-simmering trend of suspense since lock down as to what comes next. For some Leos, this takes the form of worry over credit matters and general risk aversion, as the unknown looms largely. For other Leos, it can indicate taking an escape hatch from reality via whatever preferred vice. For other Leos, it can be an acute awareness of one’s own mortality and the overall fragility of life that propels you into adopting a more spiritually aware mindset when it comes to feeling grateful for life’s basics. The cloud of unknowing starts to lift a bit come March of 2021, if that brings any solace.
So try to keep your cool during the first half of October, especially as Leos will undoubtedly be feeling the heat and pressure of making quick financial and domestic decisions anywhere between the 7th-10th of this month. You do have time, as Mercury turns retrograde from October 13th through November 3rd. Review any important paperwork, especially work-related, dealing with insurance, pensions and policies. There’s a chance you’ll be able to uncover a pertinent detail.
One bit of joy this month arrives near the days of October 10-12th in the form of a commission or a work opportunity negotiated with a partner. Not huge…but it’s something!
October 16th marks a new 4-week trend where the new growth begins, extending into next month. Think of it as necessary pruning for improved growth, the way tree branches and rose bushes need seasonal trimming. At first, this may feel thrust upon you with some finality.
Also hold off on signing any agreements or documents, no matter the pressure or coercive tactics. You’re entering a stretch that will be mentally taxing so be mindful of taking good care of your mental health by giving yourself the space to relax. It’s crucial to use this time to review any contracts thoroughly down to every last detail before taking further action. If you can hold off until the days that follow November 3rd, it will serve you better. Also, if you have siblings, they may be going through some challenges at this time due to work or home—most likely, they’re feeling run down and heavily self-critical.
October 17th delivers a flare of emotional reaction followed by a funk, something that everyone is experiencing in some to some degree. The days surrounding the 17th speak of either a loss or a delay. Don’t fixate. Pay attention to your intuition at this time to deliver a new lead, because another paying opportunity appears toward the 18th-22nd. Your work stabilises toward the 24th but the theme of this situation is to ensure that you cover all your bases and ensure that someone whom you rely upon has done so as well because it will be very easy to commit an oversight out of haste and making assumptions.
Halloween offers a pumpkin-shaped blue (second) full moon with one trick and one treat for all the zodiac signs within the next two weeks: abrupt travel for a close partner or a collaborator within the next two weeks, as they might have to take care of a concern or some past matter. Or, these next two weeks could offer consideration of exchanging one career for another.
