While the day may begin on the pleasantly lazy side, the desire to take action grows as the day advances. We want to get things done rather than simply think or talk about our issues. Connections made today can be mutually beneficial and possibly quite favorable for love and money.
- The Moon is in Cancer all day.
- The Moon is waning, and is disseminating.
- Mercury is retrograde, in the sign of Libra (until October 25th). Review, reflect, and revise. Consider ways to improve negotiations skills, one-on-one communications.
Enthusiasm stirred up now can take you far. Add some realism to the mix and you’ll do especially well. You are looking to feel more alive, vital, and vibrant through other people or through relationships. Discern between impulses that come from the heart and those that originate from a feeling of restlessness. Emotionally, you’re interested in feeding your sense of security, but others can inspire you to get moving. While you’re feeling motivated, there is no real danger of going into overdrive, and this is a good thing.
You don’t want to be constrained or limited now, and there can be a stronger desire to take action on matters that you’ve put to the side. It would be best if you were able to do things that allow you to meander outside of the rules. There is a stronger tendency to act on impulse, to make a quick decision, or to plunk yourself into a situation with some unknowns. You’re looking for a challenge! There can be nice opportunities to make important contacts through work or pursuing daily routines.
The morning is likely peaceful and a little lazy. As the day moves forward, there is a more daring and spontaneous energy with us, and this becomes you. You are enthusiastic and ready to make changes. There can be advances in the areas of creativity, romance, or hobbies. Connections could be made that advance your personal interests, and especially the more heartfelt ones. You are inclined to make quick decisions just for now, partly because you are too impatient to think things through.
It’s better to think in terms of building solid foundations rather than seeking out immediate returns, even if the day’s energies are on the impulsive side. Even so, little changes can satisfy you now. You might decide to rearrange your living setup, or reorganize your work or work environment, for example. You are less dependent on others’ approval today, a little bolder and more outgoing, and possibly a little self-centered, which is in fact a good thing if not overdone or done too often. You are inclined to strike out on your own in some manner today, and it can feel good to do so.
Pleasing energy connects communications and learning with creativity today, and the urge to get something done is with you. This can manifest in a variety of ways, such as receiving news that opens up doors for you, affectionate communications, a creative learning experience, making new contacts, and so forth. You are alert, ready to make changes, and willing to put yourself out there – with some reservation, however, as the Moon in your privacy sector signals some need to retire, rest, and renew yourself today.
You are enthusiastic and somewhat competitive in a healthy way today. There is a strong sense of community with you now, but nevertheless a self-centered streak that is in fact necessary and helpful – you may need the courage to make certain decisions or to take action on matters that you’ve let slide or ignored. Home life can be pleasingly animated. There can be a strong urge to handle problem areas in and around the home, or with family.
Conversations are a little more significant and meaningful for you right now. Whether you’re learning or teaching, receiving or giving, you stand to gain. There is more bravery or courage in your actions, and perhaps in your communications as well, especially if you’re offering info about yourself. The truth is important now, but how you word the truth is as well, in equal measure. This is a good day for public relations or simply for positive feedback.
You have good instincts for business today. Enjoy the new ideas flooding in, but save going over the details for later. There can be a strong urge with you to do something out of the ordinary, and yet emotionally speaking, you have a more “play it safe” attitude until this evening. The result might be some indecision or restlessness, but if you satisfy both urges by, for example, doing something non-routine with people you know and trust, then you’ll do better. A positive attitude tends to have the effect of moving obstacles out of your way – at the very least, the self-imposed obstacles.
You are more of a strategist than your usual spontaneous self today until about midday, when you become increasingly more inclined to take action. Be as open, willing, positive, and faithful as feels comfortable. Decisions made with, or about, friends and groups can be in focus, and made quickly. There could be a new connection made now, which may come on suddenly but it feels right. Something could inspire you to move forward on a personal goal, dream, or plan. You suddenly see things as doable. There is impulsiveness now, but if you are listening to gut instincts rather than simply reacting to people around you, then you’re in good form.
There is a tendency now to see the bigger picture, which can of course be helpful, but the details can get lost in the process. You are not as tolerant of restrictive situations, particularly on the career front, and might jump into things with both feet. Snappy decisions might be made now, and fortunately your intuition is likely to back you up. You tend to want to handle problems right away rather than let them fester or grow. You have a wonderful sense of what people want. Fortunate connections could be made now.
Today, it can seem as if you are gaining energy even with effort put forth, as you’re fueled by motivation and enthusiasm. Making changes seems to come naturally now (at the very least in theory), as you are working with an open mind and spontaneity is stimulated. Accepting new ideas and exploring different topics come naturally now, and there could be a decision made regarding friendship, travel, or education. Passions are raised, but this can also stimulate impatient behavior if you’re not finding the right channels for excess energy.
You might have the opportunity to collect on a debt or pay off one now. It’s a good time to make contacts who help you manage money or who readily support you. You may be able to draw upon resources you never knew you had. It’s a strong day for all things professional, but you need to tone down your manner if you know you’re right and others are not yet seeing it! Think “soft sell” for best results. In fact, your natural enthusiasm is probably enough to sell a good idea or plan.
If Your Birthday is October 14th, this is a year for making important connections, meeting supportive people, socializing, goal-setting, and attempting new activities and ventures. Popularity and personal magnetism increase. If Today is Your Birthday full horoscope here.

The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on October 14th:
Note that when an aspect is Applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is Separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
