Although the lunar eclipse on October 18 won't look much different than any other full Moon, it packs a little more astrological punch. Eclipses herald changes, especially for the signs involved. This time the spotlight is on Aries and Libra -- read on to find out what it may bring to your world.

This is your full Moon, Aries. Own it. It's an eclipse, which brings the opportunity -- or the demand -- for change. What in your life has become intolerable? It's time to let it go. Or if you've become complacent, prepare to have your world shaken to spark some life in you. Either way, you'll need to be strong for what lies ahead. Take care of your health. Remember, you're a hero, not an immortal.

Who do you think you are? If you're answer is, "I have no clue!" you're on the right track. If you're searching for answers to those deep questions, look no further than that small still voice within yourself. What you desire, what gives you pleasure -- these things hold clues to what you're meant to achieve in this world. Can't remember what fun feels like? Time to get out and follow that bliss.

When you're in the candy store, and everything looks so good, how do you choose? But we have limited time here on the Earth, so choose you must. If you have a hope or dream you've always wanted to fulfill, eventually you have to surrender to it if you want to experience it. Be brave and confront those ghostly voices of those who say you can't do it. You can, and you will.

You get up. Go to work. Come home. Do chores. Go to sleep. Repeat. If you're passionate about what you do, excellent! Take it to the next level. But if this sounds like you, and it feels like a rut, it's time to start a new groove. Allow yourself to imagine what's possible. Collect ideas and images of what inspires you. Cherish them, until you find the one that motivates you to shed your too-tight shell.

You are what you believe -- so don't let your beliefs limit your options. If you can't see how much you're worth for yourself, recruit some trusted friends or loved ones to tell you what your talents are. Then play to your strengths. If you need a little extra push to polish your skills, consider taking a class or two for inspiration.

Show me the money. Or at least, it's time to dust off your financial plan and see if you're on track for your goals. If you don't have a plan, then you know where to start. Find a financial advisor or credit counselor who can help you make a strategy for paying down debt and saving for your future. You'll feel less stress when you do, and you owe that to yourself.

This month's eclipse casts its shadow on your partnerships. Eclipses herald changes in the coming months. That doesn't have to mean a break up (unless that's what you're hoping for.) It can also be a breakthrough to new ways of relating. If you feel you've been stuck in the same relationship patterns, try something new and zany. Something out-of-the-ordinary may reignite sparks.

Downshift. If you've had your pedal-to-the-metal to keep things moving, you may not realize you're already running on fumes. Slow down and check in with yourself. If it's been months since you had a break, it's well overdue. For the sake of your health, take some time to distress and refuel. And remember, you're in a marathon -- not a sprint. In the future, pace yourself.


Since when did you start taking life so seriously? Sure there are bills to be paid and chores to be done. But those are just a fact of life. Don't let them deprive you of those madcap adventures that feed your soul. In fact, why wait? Stop surfing the internet and go cause some merry mischief right now. Some passionate pursuit of pleasure will get your creative juices flowing.

There's no place like home -- especially if you're on a home-improvement binge. Hey, it's your castle, and you deserve for it to be exactly what serves your needs. Consider whether your space supports you or weighs you down. If it's the latter, it's time to get the hammer and go to work. No matter if you're just cleaning out a closet, or building a whole new house, give yourself the best foundation for all you do.


Busy, busy. Aiming high is fine, but be realistic on how much time it's going to take to scale your mountain of choice. Though it may seem things are two steps forward, one step back, don't despair. The scenery is still lovely for the delays. Learn to enjoy the journey -- even the setbacks --and you'll find time passes more pleasantly. Be persistent, and you'll still arrive at your destination.

Living on a wing and a prayer works best if you're not using your angel as a pack mule. Do you really need all that clutter in the basement or garage (or any place else)? If it's not important, why have it? Knowing what's important to you is what's essential. Be willing to let go of what no longer serves you, and you'll naturally attract what you need for the next leg of your journey. And your angel will be grateful too.
