TODAY: In with the new, since wrapping up the old in all arenas is favored. And while some of the aforementioned wrap-ups could have roots in events some time ago, shortly you should actually begin to see the fruits of our ingenuity and labor. Also, be aware: Projects, programs, agendas, and plans that you choose to implement now will likely be a factor for the foreseeable future.

YOUR BIRTHDAY: A brand-new chapter in your personal novel (or phase in your life) is surely beginning. So even if you don't quite know how it will all turn out (and by the way, people rarely do)... as long as you are being diligent about using your skills or talents, and working on those projects and endeavors that engage your interests and inspire, you can safely expect great things.

If there's a conflict of interest in the house (or in a joint economic matter) that wants resolution, this New Moon/Solar Eclipse is committed to revealing the data that will ultimately make it possible to sort out. Needless to say, this is important stuff - since your decisions, once made, are likely to be in place for some time.
Taurus Thursday, October 23, 2014
"People?people who need people?" This New Moon/Solar Eclipse could change the way you view a relationship (again), which could necessitate a(nother) modification to your program - or romantic, family, or household logistics. Nevertheless, inasmuch as you've been working on this for some time now, what's a little more investment of energy if it means getting what you want?
Gemini Thursday, October 23, 2014
Today's New Moon and Solar Eclipse relate to your work, your mental and physical condition, and the way you serve or assist other people. And while its intention is to indicate - and then begin to liberate you from - those set-ups that aren't the picture of efficiency, you can help by looking up from your heavy lifting long enough to notice.
Cancer Thursday, October 23, 2014
With a New Moon and Solar Eclipse emphasizing your personal pursuit of satisfaction, joy and fulfillment, you will have yet another opportunity to consider these subjects carefully. And, the bottom line: If, for whatever reason, you aren't living your life (and enjoying it) to the fullest, attention must be paid and something concrete really must must be done.
Leo Thursday, October 23, 2014
There's a better-than-average chance that modernizing or clarifying some of your current arrangements to reflect your personal development and growth would be a good thing for everybody - especially for you. And, the New Moon and Solar Eclipse invite you to make any adjustments you deem necessary (and suitable) to affairs of the home, household or heart.
Virgo Thursday, October 23, 2014
This Solar Eclipse (and New Moon) is exceedingly interested in your daily routines, network, friendships, etc. Thus, it's fair to assume that you'll be offered some interesting insights - and become increasingly aware of the assorted (perhaps significant) adjustments that will need to be instituted if you're to arrive at your destination on schedule and with the appropriate personnel.
Libra Thursday, October 23, 2014
When you come to a fork in the road, take it. This New Moon and Solar Eclipse suggests a turning point in your financial and creative fortunes - and mental attitude. Moreover, if you would kindly look through a slightly different lens, you will likely discover that that in many cases your options are vastly improved from their earlier incarnations.
Scorpio Thursday, October 23, 2014
The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in your sign are inviting you to revise your priorities or game plan, by considering the following questions: Who are you, what do you want, and which of your available alternatives are most likely to get you there from here? Oh. Well, take all the time you need to figure out the answers.
Sagittarius Thursday, October 23, 2014
This a.m.'s New Moon and Solar Eclipse focuses on your private affairs and innermost feelings, and respectfully requests that you focus on your own wellbeing, instead of ignoring it to better be a valet for the comfort of others. However, in the interests of peacekeeping, organize this in such a way that you don't inadvertently alienate anyone.
Capricorn Thursday, October 23, 2014
Aim your sights as high as you possibly can. This New Moon and Solar Eclipse is of the shoot-the-moon, "no guts, no glory" variety. So go for it (whatever it may be) and if anybody has the temerity to tell you that you shouldn't or you can't, take that as your cue to raise the stakes even higher.
Aquarius Thursday, October 23, 2014
This morning's New Moon/Solar Eclipse cracks open the door and invites you to examine - or re-examine - your ambitions for fame, fortune, authority or recognition by your peers. And while you may ultimately decide that some alterations to the program are in order (a different approach? a different locale?), for the nonce it's enough to consider the topic.
Pisces Thursday, October 23, 2014
Any disparity between your ideal scenarios for growth and expansion and your present arrangements are highlighted by today's New Moon/Solar Eclipse, so you may want to use the information now emerging as the opening shot in your revolution for reform. After all, talking about things being different is not quite the same as doing them differently.
