Today's Horoscope For Friday, October 20, 2017 For Each Zodiac Sign

Today's DAILY Horoscope For Friday, October 20, 2017 For Each Zodiac Sign

BONUS: Your daily tarot + power color.

Your daily horoscope is here! It's Friday! Better yet — Fri-yay! 

Today we go from a New Moon in Libra into the zodiac sign of Scorpio. Mercury is also in Scorpio beside Jupiter! When Mercury is in Scorpio influenced by the presence of Jupiter, communication becomes thick with knowledge and truth, which we need more during times like these.

There are two conflicting theories about communication that happen in our world. One camp of communicators will advocate keeping things private and personal. Things that are meant to be will reveal themselves. There are people in the world who need this type of communication style.

They are introverts who have to think before talking. There are delayed listeners who hear what you said, but their mind hasn't yet processed the meaning of your words.

You'll recognize these types of people easily in a classroom setting or at work. They get asked a question and they seem to take forever to reply. You almost wonder if your words fell on deaf ears. They didn't. You know because their reply is thoughtful. The delay was to weigh their thoughts again the wealth of information collected and stored in their psyche. 

Words have power. Words also create meanings and association. If you think about a color, whatever image comes to mind will be different from someone else. These differences are what makes you unique, and also makes talking to certain people difficult to do.

Which is why the other camp of communication advocates prefer to expose the truth and to share more information than necessary. These individuals are tell-alls. They want to hear your story and they want to tell you theirs. It seems that nowadays more people are doing this on social media. Too much information can cause sensory overload. What you learn can go down to a bone level and seem to empower you or make you sad. 

With both Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio, the lesson is to learn how to handle vast amounts of communication. Venus is still in Libra and the Sun is slowly making it's way out of Libra into Scorpio, too. It's the perfect time to consider how you are using words to communicate your heart. Are you speaking with a spirit of love or are you just chatting? 

Be mindful during this time and use your words in a way that reflect your heart. 

What does this mean for your zodiac sign according to astrology?

Some zodiac signs will cut back on negative content and even choose to take a break from social media and news for the sake of clearing their mind. 

Other zodiac signs will try to find new ways to build into others through kindness. 

A few zodiac signs will look for new ways to say "I care" with people that they meet and the friends they've known for years. 

Zodiac signs that benefit from a Moon with a power day are Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces — Scorpio a double boost for you!

Best activities to do today include soulful walks, writing and reflecting on priorities; shopping, and creating meaningful memories.

CAPRICORN  (December 22 - January 19)

Tarot of the day: Ace of Pentacles

Capricorn, when you speak to others you can come across as cold. The people who know you and love you have learned that you're nothing but a soft-hearted person who would do anything to help, but of course, within boundaries. Don't let the opinion of others cause you to hold back on your thoughtfulness. Just because you can't give help in the way you suggest, doesn't mean you shouldn't say that's what's needed. 

Today, you reap a benefit from a seed you planted long ago. There's more where this comes from and your will notice a rise in your finances and good fortune over time.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Tarot of the day: Four of Pentacles

Aquarius, sometimes you're not the best at listening to difficult topics. It's not so much that you're insensitive as it is that you're busy. You can think of a solution faster than others do. You'll see the problem clearly where others can feel stuck...of course unless it's your problem. Then, things are a different story. 

Today, you may find yourself looking to hide your feelings about a situation through material things. Perhaps you've been planning your holiday shopping or have already begun to overspend in an area you promised you'd be more frugal in. Whatever it is that's happening right now, your conversations will help you to see the areas that you need to work on in yourself. When a friend confides in you, and the solution seems simple, think about the times you've been stuck and then improve in that area.

Power color: Green for spiritual clarity.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Tarot of the day: Page of Pentacles

Pisces, people are inclined to open up to you more than other signs because your soul somehow communicates a kind, gentle and caring nature. The problem is that there are times when you need to share, too. The emotions you have run deeply and this can leave others unsure how to support you in the same way that you support them. You NEED deep communication. You WANT it and it's what makes you such a treasure. But there's a balance that you need to strike when talking with others you care about.

Today, a person younger than you provide guidance in this area. Learn how to strike a balance between sharing deeply in light conversation so that you don't put yourself out there and feel exposed. But, also so that others who listen don't feel drowned. 

Power color: Aquamarine for spiritual connection.
