ARIES

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 7th House of love, balance, harmony, close relationships, marriage, partnership, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, lovers and adversaries.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to learn how to conduct your relationships with those close to you from a deeper, more empowered place. Although this is not likely to happen in a straightforward way, you have a lot of resources to help you do this. Your interactions with others may be somewhat stressed or intense during this cycle, but this may also come with a lot of support and inspiration.

This may involve financial dealings with others, especially concerning projects or efforts to mobilise your money-making potential. Cash flow, income, investments or purchase power may seem to have stalled for a time, or possibly forced you to take a detour, while Mars is retrograde.

It will help to take a step back and look at the long-term picture, and put your short-term frustration into perspective. You may feel like you have to take a leap of faith that feels more like a leap off a cliff edge. But re-centre yourself in what you know—especially about who you are, your personal purpose, and creative projects.

You'll find that those close to you can help you get grounded with this. There is a risk of collapsing yourself into an enmeshed interaction with others, as well as falling into a controlling or manipulative dynamic. Try to keep it light but grounded.

ARIES

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to reassess what you want from relationships, especially to incorporate a mentoring, advisory or spiritual component. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

You are called on to create a better balance between your own needs and those of the people close to you (e.g., spouse, partner, very close friend, mentor, spiritual advisor, therapist, etc.). You may feel like progress in these areas are a bit stalled at the moment, but it is important that you use this as an opportunity to revaluate and acknowledge what is your own, in terms of resources, finances, possessions, and inner strengths and weaknesses.

Your need to be pragmatic about your own priorities may require you to retrace your steps or reconsider your direction. This could create some conflict with your Significant Others or with your idealisation of your relationship(s) with them, requiring some adjustment on both sides. However, negotiation about this is likely to be productive and helpful, especially if you draw on the spiritual or ethical common ground that you both share and don't let your ego get out of hand.

Concrete goals (your own or shared with Significant Others) may seem a bit out of reach right now or seem to fall short of what you'd hoped. But it will help to keep the big picture in mind and to empower yourself by staying true to your spiritual values.

TAURUS

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 6th House of work and service (paid or volunteer), health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to establish a more meaningful relationship with those close to you.

To do this you will need to find ways to empower yourself—not with sharp objects ;-) but with negotiation, persuasion, wisdom and inner strength. And to do that, you'll have to overcome and redirect the frustration you might feel, because your ability to wield force is somewhat blunted or slowed down while Mars is retrograde.

There is a potential for support, ideas and inspiration through your work or any kind of service done for others. This can enhance (or require) your sense of fairness, justice and compassionate understanding, as well as finding a way to communicate this to others.

Health issues may also require attention now, and can benefit by spending some time at home de-stressing after a hard day. Be good to yourself, but try to avoid pigging out in front of the TV or you may regret it later.

TAURUS

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 12th house of spirituality, compassion, isolation, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to bring a better balance between taking direct and disciplined action versus going with the intuitive flow. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

You've made intermittent progress in your goals in the past several months, especially in health, work, service, and bringing a higher purpose to these areas. It might feel a bit like you're stagnating lately, requiring a lot of adjustment to keep yourself focused on empowering yourself by applying spiritual values in your work and health.

However, you have increased ability right now to apply a grounded and disciplined strategy in intense or "political" dealings with others. This ability can give you a cunning edge, as well as the choice about how to use it—for your own ends or for the greater good of all concerned.

Keep the big picture in mind, as well as your highest ethics and values, and this can guide you through.

GEMINI

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and "joi de vivre.")

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to expand and explore your creative force, whether that involves artistry, a creative project, children, the pursuit of fun, or your personal sense of self and purpose. And you have quite an arsenal of resources to help you do this!

You may feel confident about this, but still wonder if your talent and ability are enough to reach the ideals you are aiming for. You might feel some self-doubt along with the confidence, but this is part of the process of turning around to see your situation from a new perspective, which can rejuvenate the creative process. You could feel some struggle around what (or who) you are giving your talents and dedication to.

The question is: what ideal do you give yourself to? Do you strive toward a higher purpose or ideal, which is probably slow to bloom and lacks some of the sizzle you enjoy? Or do you aim for a more passionate pleasure, which is more immediate but may also make it easier to sell your ideals short?

Stretching your awareness and curiosity to explore these areas will unfold over the next several months, especially while Mars is retrograde.

GEMINI

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues and co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large and vision of the future.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to reform your approach to creative self-expression, while wrestling with how to integrate unusual ideas, attitudes and principles. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

By now you probably have a better idea of where you want to go, although you may feel a bit stagnated and not understand why, or you may be concerned that the reason why is something beyond your control. But being temporarily delayed isn't the same as permanently blocked. Right now there is no shortage of inspiring ideas, motivating vision and people who can help you formulate your plans. The challenge is to trust the process even when the process seems stalled.

That doesn't mean you can't be proactive, but it does mean you need to apply more patience and adjustment than you might be comfortable with. Ambiguity is not going to go away completely, and your impulse is probably to want to force the issue or scheme your way out of the impasse.

However, you will end up farther ahead if you aim for a maintaining balance—matching one step forward for every step back that you encounter, rather than trying to smash through obstacles and sprinting ahead.

CANCER

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father, childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to find new ways of communicating with and relating to your family, people in your support network, children and friends.

Your pursuit of hopes and dreams, as well as your connection to your social network of friends and community, may be somewhat bogged down lately. These areas will probably require some rethinking and redirecting while Mars is retrograde. Support from family and Significant Others can help keep you grounded and stabilised while you work out what the source of the problem is. However, they may also challenge you to see things from a different perspective, which might be difficult to face but could still be beneficial.

You could be offered financial support, although you might have to get past a conflict with your ideals or ethics. On the other hand, you may be called on to provide support to others (e.g., children or lover), which might seem to come at a bad time because you might feel you're not able to capture and nurture your own future, never mind help someone else with theirs. However, doing so will help to anchor you in a deeper sense of values and self-worth.

It's important to let your ideals and ethics steer your ambition, and not the other way around. It's also important to not get so caught up in wanting your life to reflect your sense of what's right or what's ideal that you create an atmosphere where those close to you can't live up to your expectations. Strive for ideals that accept human nature without shaming or blaming.

CANCER

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(In your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother, social reputation and roles in society.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to refine your approach to boundaries (yours and others') using a balanced approach of self-assertion and diplomacy. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

The need for re-parenting yourself has since evolved into a challenge to embrace your own authority. This is especially the case in areas of finance, resources and gathering the "substance" of what you need to rebuild the foundation of your life. This may require you to first throw away old habits and expectations about who and what supports your life, even as you are starting to shape new confidence, vision and purpose out of what remains.

This could revive old struggles, conflicts or frustrations with friends, loved ones or parents. However, this is also a valuable opportunity to respond differently using the strength and perspective you've developed over the past couple of years, and in the last six months in particular.

Stay in balance by keeping the big picture in focus and tapping into your endurance, confidence, and your instinct for healing and just "doing the work" that needs to be done. The old idea of "whistling while you work" (literally or metaphorically) can probably have a more positive effect now than you realise.

LEO

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. Your creative self-expression is on centre stage during both the short and long term cycles.

Recently you've been handed a sort of lead weight that may seem to keep you from soaring free, but this is actually giving you some structure and grounding that can anchor your awareness and frame your perceptions. This is both a source of frustration and a resource to help guide you out of that frustration, so don't dismiss it too quickly.

You may also feel like your ambitions and goals have become bogged down or are taking a detour on the path to success. Your goals and career may require some rethinking and redirecting while Mars is Retrograde. You might react to this by wanting to stay close to home (literally or figuratively, as in "playing it safe"). Or, you might find that family or other support people encourage you to strengthen yourself from within, by building a stronger foundation of passion for what you love.

The key is to focus your conscious intent and awareness so that your perspective and understanding become clearer and broader, and so that you can harvest new ideas and that can be put into practice later.

LEO

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 9th House of spirituality, beliefs, truth-seeking, justice, philosophy, knowledge, teaching/learning, publishing, long-distance travel, foreign lands and languages, and multiculturalism.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to stretch your understanding of the relationship between common knowledge and acquired wisdom, and to bring this to a higher purpose in the way you relate to others. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

It is your job now to take that higher purpose and understanding and translate it into your everyday world, where it can give new meaning to seemingly trivial experiences. In fact, focusing on your need for encouragement and care (both from support people and from the Universe) could take you deeper psychologically than you realise. You might glimpse a deeper issue of how your self-esteem is connected to your idealisation of others, which is a process of growth that will unfold over the next year or two.

However, for now there is likely no shortage of opinions, insights and inspiration in you, although there may be some frustrating limits in your ability to put it all into concrete form the way you'd like. The trick is to approach it without overstating your credibility, which could make you appear overqualified and make others suspicious of your message.

Stay focused on your goal, even if it seems to be out of reach or stalled lately. Your direction or means of getting there may need some adjustment, based on new insight bringing inspiration to your creativity. By accepting necessary limits and keeping yourself focused on the task at hand, you can accomplish more than you might think...and your confidence will not desert you as you might think.

VIRGO

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to grapple with the whole concept of abundance and what that means to you, especially as it relates to (or conflicts with) your sense of ethics, ideals and what you have to do to get it.

Lately, you may feel that your actions, which are inspired by or aimed at your highest vision, feel like they're becoming vain or futile. The truth is you probably need to rethink your strategy and reconnect with the passion that drives those ideals, even though it may feel like nothing fits together conveniently or clearly right now. This is likely to continue while Mars is retrograde.

Rather than simply leave you frustrated, it could potentially inspire some writing or new ideas that rejuvenate your creative spark. This struggle about your ideals will affect and is affected by your attitude toward material wealth, income, resources and the spiritual abundance that forms the inner substance of who you are.

People who are close to you may provide insight, feedback or interaction that may feel irritating or frustrating, but this could also force you to strengthen your ability to connect the material to the spiritual in a pragmatic way. This is valuable because some of your struggle may be rooted in questioning whether it's possible to be both (materially secure and spiritually connected). While this is certainly possible, you need to find the way to build a bridge between them that works best for you.

VIRGO

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, death, rebirth, transformation and sexuality.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to take a more philosophical or spiritual approach to empowerment and learn to be assertive without being pushy. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

Now it's time to take a philosophical and spiritual approach to abundance and wealth of all kinds, and explore how these are shared and divided up between yourself and other people. You have the need and the opportunity to expand and take stock of your strengths, resources and values that form the armour by which you support and empower yourself.

However, you might find that you have to deal with limitations, obligations or consequences that seem to come out of nowhere or perhaps result from speaking your mind a little too bluntly. This can be eased by reaching out for spiritual support in concrete ways. For example: schedule some "alone time" at home, or spend some private time with a family member to reinforce your mutual connection.

You might want to get away for a while to do this, although you may find your finances or home responsibilities interfere. Focus on doing what you can, rather than succumbing to frustration over what you can't.

LIBRA

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. This is your New Moon and Eclipse, Libra, and it will therefore affect your sense of self and purpose.

You've been working with the quest of expanding your spiritual connection to the Universe for about a year now, and that process is nearing completion and about to shift later this month. In this final stage, you are being challenged to find a harmonious balance between yin and yang, between height and depth, and between the personal and the transpersonal.

You may feel more overwhelmed than inspired for a while, as you stretch yourself to gain a broader understanding and awareness of these issues. What's frustrating is that your sense of personal control and power may seem somewhat upside-down or sluggish for a while, while Mars is retrograde.

You'll have to reach for a more Universal empowerment based on wisdom, courage, tenacity and your true deep-down passion, in order to find a productive balance between all the different components. Exploring new ways to serve a higher calling will require that you make solid connections to associates, groups and community, which in turn can create a structure for a more authentic You to come out.

LIBRA

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 7th House of Significant Others, relationships, partnerships, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, and balance.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to examine your close relationships and the ways that your interactions with others reflect your own projected issues, as well as finding fair but objective ways to respond to others. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

The need for justice, ethics and fair assessment of others is important, since you are now confronted by the consequences of your choices and decisions. However, your ability to find solid ground on which to see the big picture is strong right now.

You may be uncertain or overwhelmed in trying to decide how to assert yourself, especially when the balance of power between yourself and others is at stake. It will help you to maintain a balance between aspiring to higher ethics while also acknowledging and accepting that it may be necessary to be forceful and no-nonsense in your dealings with others.

Friends and associates may be able to provide helpful feedback, insight and a reality check. And you might find that your position is stronger and more empowered than you think. Just don't become overconfident and assume you don't have to reach for the optimal course of action.

SCORPIO

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 12th house of spirituality, compassion, solitude, privacy, alone time, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to find a better balance between your interactions with others on the outside and your connection to yourself and the Universe on the inside.

It may be necessary to spend some time alone or away from the world, in order to clear enough space inside yourself to hear the whispers of the Universe more clearly. That alone-time can also help to strengthen your goals and ambitions. Although this may initially aggravate the part of you that wants to be unconventional and creative, strengthening the structure of those goals can ironically support that individualistic part of you in unexpected ways.

However, it's also important to balance alone-time with interaction in the outside world. This allows you to practice balancing self-care and self-love with learning how to assert and defend your interests without declaring nuclear war. This might not be easy to do—you may find it difficult to avoid conflict with others, who come across as uncompromising or antagonistic—but by exercising these "muscles" you will find it gets easier in time. This is a challenge to work through while Mars is retrograde.

Don't be surprised, however, if you find your spiritual/alone connection can't be directly or fully translated into something understood by the everyday world. Pay special attention to dreams, which can tell you things that you can't be perceived or understood by your waking consciousness.

SCORPIO

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 6th House of work and service, paid or volunteer, health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to get busy with planning clear steps toward goals, and then to wrestle with a tendency to rebel against the structure, rules and discipline required to make it happen. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

Those goals now require serious commitment, stability and work. Although you may have struggled with or rebelled against this in the past six months, you have resources and strength to help you work productively toward those goals.

However, you also need a certain amount of faith, ethics and higher purpose to guide you through the coming months, and you are likely involved in trying to get a handle on this now. Your biggest obstacle may a pessimistic or overly harsh outlook. It might be hard trying to find the words and thoughts that adequately capture and support the steps you are trying to take to make your larger goals come to life.

Much of what you're battling is trying to find a working balance between the spiritual and the physical; between the elusive and the defined; between principles and practice. Those close to you may not seem as supportive as you'd like them to be, but this is likely just temporary. Trust the Universe to provide the essentials will not only invite that spiritual support, it will also ease tensions with others.

SAGITTARIUS

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues, associates, co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large, and vision and hopes for the future.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to explore new networking connections with co-workers, friends, mentors, groups and community.

However, this isn't likely to happen in a straightforward way. For one thing, progress in your projects, work, service or health could become blocked, detoured or delayed while Mars is retrograde, requiring you to rethink or reroute your direction.

You may need to work behind the scenes initially, to get things back on track. But be careful—there's a fine line between quietly working in the background versus being deceptively manipulative for your own ends. You may encounter some philosophical struggle around finances, self-worth and your position about material abundance—the needs of the many versus the needs of the one (who does/doesn't deserve it, how one should/shouldn't acquire it, what should be done with it, etc.).

This may seem to be in conflict with the ideals and philosophy held by your social network or community. Ironically, much of the resulting frustration can be alleviated by cultivating a cooperative bridge between your struggle to develop a spiritual identity and the ideals of the community collective consciousness, even though that might seem to be part of the problem in the first place.

SAGITTARIUS

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and joi de vivre.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to develop your involvement with the collective community around you and the individuals within it, as well as establishing your own interests within that collective. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

Through your involvement with groups, humanity, friends and future dreams, you have begun to connect with something greater than yourself. This is about to shift in scale (when Jupiter goes into Scorpio) into a connection with the spiritual Universe that will unfold over the coming year.

In this time of transition, your mission is to reaffirm your individual identity as a child of the Universe, AND your membership within the greater whole of Humanity, friends, associates and the realm of future possibilities.

This is also a good time to shed some old misconceptions you have about material wealth and security—perhaps you feel that having it diminishes your freedom somehow, or maybe you feel that you never have enough to truly be free. You are urged to discover the spiritual in the material and concrete manifestations of higher principles, and any issues you have about material abundance might be a good place to start.

CAPRICORN

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(In your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother, social reputation and roles in society.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. This is a time of special focus on your ambitions and goals, and how to get from here to there in a way that is consistent with your integrity.

If you are thinking about or planning for a new project, this may become a more stressful and long-term journey than you thought. It's not impossible to succeed, but your route will take you to places you may not have expected. For one thing, self-expression that fuels your creative inspiration may be temporarily blocked or disrupted (while Mars is retrograde), possibly through conflicts with friends or associates.

It will help to strengthen your understanding of the situation from a broad perspective, and integrate this with how to wield power effectively but ethically behind the scenes. This can help you create a more stable position from which to deal with any conflicts of interest between your personal self-expression and the "peer pressure" of the Collective.

You are in a long term process (about two years) of learning how to tap into greater empowerment by getting your ego out of the way and focusing on priorities. Although this may sometimes seem to get worse before it gets better, now is a time when you have a chance to move a few more steps in the journey by learning to capitalise on your strengths in the face of paradox and instability.

CAPRICORN

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father, childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to strive for a new vision of possibilities, possibly inspired (or triggered) by close relationships, especially with family members or support people. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

Your focus now is toward manifesting your visions by networking with people who can help you get where you want to go. You might be feeling a bit of self-doubt or hesitation, especially if you're unsure of what you have to offer or how others will react to your ideas.

However, you have a powerful presence with an undercurrent of charm and gentle persuasion. Just don't get too heavy handed or it might backfire so that you appear as if you're trying to hide something.

It might seem like no matter which way you act or respond, you will either trigger undercurrents of power struggles or having to demonstrate more confidence and faith than you truly feel. However, by tapping into your own undercurrent of power, combined with your underlying faith in your goals, you should be able to at least stabilise an otherwise erratic pattern of action. And keep that gentle yet firm persuasion in mind.

AQUARIUS

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 7th House of love, balance, harmony, close relationships, marriage, partnership, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, lovers and adversaries.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You are challenged to learn how to conduct your relationships with those close to you from a deeper, more empowered place.

Although this is not likely to happen in a straightforward way, you have a lot of resources to help you do this. Your interactions with others may be somewhat stressed or intense during this cycle, but this may also come with a lot of support and inspiration.

This may involve financial dealings with others, especially concerning projects or efforts to mobilise your money-making potential. Cash flow, income, investments or purchase power may seem to have stalled for a time, or possibly forced you to take a detour, while Mars is retrograde.

It will help to take a step back and look at the long-term picture, and put your short-term frustration into perspective. You may feel like you have to take a leap of faith that feels more like a leap off a cliff edge. But re-centre yourself in what you know—especially about who you are, your personal purpose, and creative projects.

You'll find that those close to you can help you get grounded with this. There is a risk of collapsing yourself into an enmeshed interaction with others, as well as falling into a controlling or manipulative dynamic. Try to keep it light but grounded.

AQUARIUS

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to develop new awareness and information that generated a new connection to spirituality, meaning and wisdom, while doing the ground work to build that connection. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

That need for effective preplanning of activities has now shifted to the need to develop better relationships with others, be that a spouse, close friend or boss, or networking with friends, associates and authority figures in general.

The information and new perspectives you have gathered in the last few months can now be assimilated into a unified philosophical or spiritual vision. This can bring meaning and stability to past issues and problems that keep coming back to haunt, especially if you apply this meaning with the transformational force of group support (e.g., self-help groups, supportive friends or organisations, etc.).

Although it is possible to achieve this (assimilation of new meaning) within the world around you, it might seem like it doesn't quite live up to the grand vision of ideals you had aimed for. However, don't be tempted to think this is the same as failure or inadequacy. What you are seeing is a reflection of the inherent difficulties in manifesting our ideals and principles, and our perception of these, into an accessible form. Hang in there with the process and allow the enlightenment to unfold.

PISCES

For SOLAR ECLIPSE
NEW MOON in Libra

October 3 to November 1, 2005

(Takes place in your 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, death, rebirth, transformation and sexuality.)

The New Moon begins a four-week cycle of growth. But this is also a Solar Eclipse, so this New Moon cycle will also begin a new six-month process of evolution. You've been on a year-long mission of shining light into your dark shadows. You are about to shift into the flipside of this, to learn about the wisdom that can be (re)born out of that darkness.

You need to take stock of what you've learned in the past year. But just when you need it most, your brain and mouth may seem to take on a life of their own as you try to make sense of it all and put it into words. Your ability to put your learning into action may be blocked or delayed. This could leave you vulnerable to the lure of pressured manipulation, rationalised by claiming that the end justifies the means. It's important to strengthen your empowerment—which involves embracing some of the power dynamic that may feel intimidating right now. The trick is to do it with integrity.

There is a point at which too much reliance on faith and idealism can turn into denial instead of a healing salve. You may need to confront this possibility in yourself, in order to do closure with the process of the past year. Friends may give feedback about this (or you to them), which might be hard to hear but shouldn't just be dismissed out of hand. One of your current strengths comes from combining passionate dedication with disciplined service. This can help keep you grounded amid the confusion happening in your life right now, which ultimately seeks to liberate you from mere turmoil into a true connection with divine chaos.

PISCES

For FULL MOON
LUNAR ECLIPSE in ARIES

October 17, 2005

(Takes place in your 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the issues that began at the previous Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2005) to full emergence. What started then was a need to reassess your value system, revitalise your self-worth and explore a more spiritual, ethical balance between your and others' interests. This is very much in focus now, giving you an opportunity to find a new balance between these components.

It is now possible to shine an illuminating light into the dark corners of denial, cynicism and control issues. In part this is done by asserting your own interests and needs, using new information, skills and understanding you've acquired in the last several months.

This may require conformity with group expectations, as well as accepting less support (or conditional support) from groups, organisations and friends than you feel you deserve. However, it will help if you adopt an attitude that, by accepting these limitations and constrictions, you are providing the necessary service and effort that will ultimately support your own goals and aims.

You might feel the impulse to lose your temper or speak sharply because of stress and tension. It will help if you stay focused on your higher vision of what you want to achieve and remember that even if circumstances prevent you from being as powerful as you would like, you are still far from helpless. Large dreams require time and patience, so allow yours to unfold as it will.
