New beginnings are abound this week! A partial solar eclipse on October 23rd gets things off to a great start, particularly in areas related to money, intimacy, personal power and control, says astrologer Lisa Barretta. "Luckily, the Mercury retrograde period is winding down and after the 25th of the month we should be able to correct any flaws in our previously made decisions," she notes. For a more detailed look at the days ahead, check out Lisa's horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Recent changes to your growing guest list may upset a few people this week. Remember: you have to draw the line somewhere though even if someone threatens to boycott the wedding. Curb your impulsive nature because the real art of conversation is not only knowing when to say the right thing, but also knowing when to keep your mouth shut.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Things may seem a little hectic this week and a compromised schedule may push you out of your usual, predictable comfort zone. This week's eclipse conjuncts Venus, your ruling planet, so make sure someone doesn't push you into trying a new hair color before your big day. Drastic changes now are not a good idea.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Double check all agreements this week, and make sure your wedding vendors provide you with signed copies of your contracts with them. A recent disappointment may prove to be a blessing in disguise. Surprising news arrives around the 24th of the month so get ready.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The past few weeks of backtracking now give way to sudden progress. Be careful not to make any quick or hasty decisions just for the sake of getting thing done. You're in a productive frame of mind, but do your budget before you plop money down on an over the top gown or honeymoon abroad.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
This week's eclipse will help you get to the bottom of who is behind some sneaky, little sidebar dealings on the work front. Someone may be jealous of your engagement ring or impending, new marital status. As usual, you manage to handle the situation with dignity. Jupiter in your sign bestows many blessings so wear them well.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Mercury, your ruling planet, has been retrograde for the past few weeks, which accounts for all of the little mix ups, spontaneous changes to plans and snafus on your wedding registry list. It might be time to relinquish full control and let others step in to help you with some of the planning for your big day.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Don't get discouraged if you aren't exactly thrilled with how something turned out. You're still feeling the aftermath of the October 8th Lunar Eclipse that affected your sign. You may have to re-do your engagement pictures or rearrange your seating chart. Give everything a fresh start after October 25th when Mercury goes direct.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Patience may not be your strong point this week. The Partial Solar Eclipse on October 23rd may prompt you to have an open dialogue with your partner to discuss certain things that need his full cooperation. Talking about florists and gifts for the groomsmen need more than the 15-minute break between periods of an NHL hockey game, don't you think?
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Saturn is edging in on your sign, and you may start to feel pressured to get down to business and get all of your wedding plans done. Be certain you have all the facts before committing to any agreements or putting money on "non-refundable" deposits.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You may seem a little restless because of some unexpected changes and discord going on right now. Work may be the cause of your angst and impede on your personal plans. You have all the more reason to look forward to the rest and relaxation of your honeymoon.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Simplify your life any way you can this week. You have been on a whirlwind for the past month. Romance and socializing bring you back in balance as you catch up with friends. Exciting news is headed your way and gives you a reason to celebrate.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
After a few weeks of "all systems go" you may suddenly feel blocked. It doesn't take much to throw off your super sensitive energy. Things look up after the eclipse turns the tables around on the 23rd. Shopping for wedding bands and boho chic bridesmaid dresses help to once again ignite your creative juices.
