At six one morning, Will went out in jeans and frayed sweater to buy a quart of milk. A tourist bus went by. The megaphone was directed at him. “There’s one,” it said. That was in the l960s. Ever since, he’s wondered. There’s one what? Renata Adler

October's new Moon is a partial solar eclipse. Occurring on October 23 in the United States and the morning of October 24 in Australia, the eclipse will be visible over parts of Russia, Japan, and, before sunset, across most of north America. Solar eclipses occur once every six months and they often bring about endings and beginnings. Certainly, we often have big things happen right on or around eclipses and this one is set to be no exception. The Sabian Symbols are rather evocative and could be signalling some difficult times, or, and this is more likely, liberating times and events for many as we continue to leave issues, people, places and things behind us that are no longer serving. Please keep in mind that all new moons can hold an effect for many months into the future, but the eclipses can signal a pouring out of energy that can stretch even further into the future. What is released or started or what this eclipse season holds for you really depends on your individual situation, your chart, and, often, your consciousness, but it is probably safe to say that big things can be unleashed now and how they work out, for better or for worse, for you is something subjective to you - depending on how you see what's going on in your life.
