For Monday, Oct. 17
Those with birthdays today: A lunar eclipse on your birthday could herald substantial changes the following year. Do not fight change. Do not look at any situation as bad, but rather transitory. How this stellar event impacts you will depend on your chart. If you are a woman, you might have a mini identity crisis and take another look at your emotional life. If you are a man, there could be a change in the emotional caliber of your life. Some will say hello to new homes. If you are single, your status will probably change as you learn to value closeness on a new level. If you are attached, work with each other, allowing transformation. ARIES can challenge you.
