My horoscopes are late this month because October is a happening month in so many ways. The first half is a cleaning up of personal details and this astrologer was perhaps kicking and screaming her life was overtaken. As the clouds parted and new paths opened, cosmic hands helped shove me back into gear.

The month’s full moon, October 16, isn’t going to be fun. Something critical is about to be unleashed in each sign.People will act erratically. It starts around the 15th awakening, refocusing and ultimately stability will start to occur. Scorpio is prominent in the sky and hosts Venus in the first half, the Sun starting the 22nd, Mercury on the 24th, the New Moon on the 30th. The veil is thin; the atmosphere teems with mystery, intrigue and a hint of danger.

LIBRA: Your life has been plagued with trials. In October the universe steps in to solve the past and improve your life. The full moon effects your business, a member of the family, or your friendship sector will be under siege. Just breath. Fresh air is what you need Libra! Outdoor activities are exceptionally good for you. Your disposition is easy and laid back. Family and small children are important, so make time for family get togethers. Watch your health do not over extend yourself or let burdensome situations rob you of your vital energy. Everything will work out. Romance is on the charts mid to end of month. Share a yummy desert on a very chilly evening.

SCORPIO: The full moon, arrives in your sixth house of work projects. Beware as projects might go haywire at the last minuet. If you own a business workers will be slacking off, not showing up or you might catch one sabotaging. Have your antenna up as all this could reflect on you, even if it’s not your fault. Emotions will be fragile. If you are about to sign a contract at the full moon – don’t. Unexpected challenges pop up when least expected. Ugg! However you are a pro and you handle them quickly and move into a happy space. You get a healthy does of good fortune mid month. You will have some very sweet moments with loved ones and expect some hot, sexy nights ahead. Perfect as the weather gets a bit cooler.

SAGITTARIUS: Romantic relationship take an unexpectedly strange turn come the full moon. Expect the unexpected as you will not be able to imagine what kind of news this full moon could bring you. It could be a disruption or revelation, and you will need to be calm. Full moons bring closure and truth. The  full moon falls, in your house of money, so expenses will make life irritating. Keep great records and check receipts. Planning a trip do not be surprised if it has to be rescheduled. While waiting indulge in the fancier side of life. Luck will shine on you and you will celebrate in your usual fashion. Be the daredevil that you are! Intense passion and decadent food and deserts are shared with good friends and romantic partners. The sun shines it’s warmth on you in many area’s of your life. Your good mood is contagious.  You will have a blast this month but just be careful until after the full moon!

CAPRICORN: The full moon, effects your physical home or a family member, or partner. For you news may be good or not, but you may need to dip into the kitty to fix whatever comes up. Keep your schedule light so that you can move in any direction. Until then now is the time to move forward and make things happen. Things are changing in a good way. Listen to the opinions of others as they can help you grow your business and move you ahead with your career goals. You will learn to delegate authority through them. Focus, make your intentions clear to others in the work department, as well as your personal relations.  You tend to seek a bit of solitude, which will give your soul the nourishment you need. The answers you seek, will come to you and you will emerge with a new found wisdom.

AQUARIUS: The full moon effects your long-distance travel plans, as well as a partner, in love or business, will act out of character. Guard your health three days prior and after the 16th. You may get good news about your living situation, property you may own or rent, or about a family member. During the first part of the month you need some time to retreat and recharge your batteries. Challenges are resolving themselves and good fortune shows itself toward the end of the month, providing you with a good chunk of change. You have an abundance where the flow of cash is concerned. You will be offered help in your business. Intimate relationships are based on sensuality and intimacy . A short trip will serve you well. You can trust that this month will be 5 stars all the way.

PISCES: You may have a financial setback at the full moon, when money news could be temporarily distressing. Don’t let this concern you, as generating income is so strong not only for October but also for an entire year to come, all the way to October 2017. You will finally have time to see friends; see a Broadway play, or get back to your old life. The truth remains the truth my dear Pisces and it rules in your favor. You make honorable choices. Celebration of good fortune, financial gain, good health, joyful times spent with family & friends are all in store. New endeavors are a wonderful way to start off the fall season. Things are changing for the better. Abundance and really good times, begin at the end of October and continue well into the New Year! Very Nice!

ARIES: October 15-16 is going to be challenging as the full moon is in Aries and will be strongly effecting you for four days before and after it appears. Tension and pressure around work will leave you needing to negotiate your way out of a tough situation. Others try to dictate your life and manipulate your will. If you are in the arts Neptune, planet of the arts, will work to help you out. At the same time, the full moon will effect your dating life. If you are living together you may find yourself wanting to move out. Keep your schedule light, say little and keep your ears open. It’s all about teamwork. Put down your burdens! Relax, focus on what really is important. You have a lovely guardian angel waiting to help, so ask for guidance. You will be divinely inspired. Release fear with faith and miracles occur. In order to create a more balanced everyday, say goodbye to unfulfilled inspiration and expectations. You will find peace. Your sexual energy stirs up passionate nights!

TAURUS: The full moon, will bring a secret someone tried to keep out in the open. Possibly a secret you needed to keep is the one to slip out. Also keep your eye on your health. Just remember you have a direct line to change. You are the creator of your present and your future. Accept your past but don’t use and it to define your future. Balance and harmony serve you well as you celebrate a very bountiful existence. Relationships of all kinds are highlighted for you this month.

GEMINI: You have money this month, but keep it close until after the 16th. Things may come to culmination near October 15-16, so be ready. You are called to take a step back, pause and observe. Any challenge can be sorted out with a little truth and integrity. Use your instincts, as you look deeper into the situation and act with sound judgement. You are drawn to new people and places that will assist you in the expansion of your world view.

A Solar Eclipse Is Coming to New York



I am not a big stargazer. Living in New York with all the light pollution, there aren’t many stars you can see anyway. You can see more stars walking the NYC streets filming “Law & Order” episodes than you can see in the sky on a clear night. And I am no astronomer; I can barely recognize the Big Dipper and where is Orion’s Belt; but, there is one celestial event that I am a fan of – and that’s a solar eclipse. This amazing event happens far less often than the proverbial blue moon and one is coming this April very near to New York City.

That is not the moon – Its the sun

A total solar eclipse is when the moon in bright daylight passes in front of the sun totally blocking the sun’s light. It is occurring on April 8th of this year and will be partially experienced by us in New York City. I remember hearing about a solar eclipse in 1970 when I was a young boy and New York went wild with excitement. It was passing through our city and classrooms throughout were taking shoe boxes and cereal boxes and punching small holes in them so children could experience the phenomenon safely. Looking up at the sun during the eclipse will result in severe eye damage but now special eclipse glasses are for sale in areas where eclipses traverse the sky.

Photo of Solar Eclipse at Camp Eclipse in Idaho

In 2017 I was able to experience this miracle of our planet in a cow field in Idaho. I do not use the term miracle lightly. A solar eclipse is a humbling experience and witnessing one makes one appreciate the earth we live on and the awesomeness of our universe. Just think about it… we live on a planet that has one moon that is the exact perfect circumference that lies at the absolute perfect distance between the sun and the planet that when it crosses in front of it totally blocks the sun’s circumference. WOW! That’s more geometry than I ever learned in high school and it is mind blowing.

Get your glasses

It is no wonder that ancient civilizations thought the world was coming to an end or that their gods had become angry with them. Imagine being unprepared and seeing the sun disappear in front of your eyes. What is even more amazing is how this unusual event affects the creatures on the planet. When I witnessed the eclipse in this cow pasture, as the moon slowly passed over the sun, the August temperature gradually cooled and as the light began to dim the cows began to moo and bellow. The birds thinking it was turning to night began to fly back to their nests as bees returned to their hives. When the moon fully blocked the sun and we were fully enclosed in darkness there was an eerie quiet that swept over my campsite of over 300 people as we gazed up with our protective glasses and took in the marvel of what was happening. Although full contact (or when the moon fully blocks the sun) may only last a few minutes, the effect lasts a lifetime. The time it took the moon to pass over the sun was over two hours and I just sat gazing at the entire event from start to finish, in which, on a number of occasions, as I pondered the enormity of this wonder tears did well up in my eyes. How lucky we are to be on this planet.

In Chile the eclipse was witnessed in a remote mountain range

Since then I have traveled to a mountain range in Chile to take in the sight. While still amazing the sun was partially hidden by a peak; but still a tremendous experience. I took a cruise to Antarctica to see the eclipse in December 2021 which took place at 3 AM. Despite it being summer down there the sun was hidden by clouds so we didn’t get the full effect but who can complain when included in the voyage there were PENGUINS!!!

Chili eclipse

This April the solar eclipse passes through much of the eastern part of the United States. We in New York will not experience 100% totality of the sun being covered, we will experience 80-85% – parts further west will experience 100% darkness. For us, first contact of the moon with the sun will occur at 2:10 pm and final contact will be 4:36 with full coverage at 3:25 PM. While 100% coverage will be a life changing experience, even the 80% we will witness is worth taking the time out of your day to enjoy. Buy your protective glasses, punch holes in your cereal boxes, take out your spaghetti strainers (they create an amazing effect of multiple eclipses); get yourself to any field clear of trees and buildings and prepare yourself for a sight you will not forget. – Don’t forget – it’s April 8th!!!!

Return to her artisan roots in New York City to one of her original stomping grounds in the Chelsea neighborhood, Friday joins forces with The Life of Riley, a “beauty and beyond” co-working space where her private studio is located. At The Life Of Riley Friday maintains some of the highest standards set by New York City and regulated by the Department of Health as well as little-known industry standards. Such notable protocols include asking potential clients to wait two weeks before fully deciding on committing to getting questionable spontaneous tattoos as part of the movement to promote higher work ethics in the field by all skin artisans in the city.  

Expanding her business to new horizons, Friday unveiled the latest extension of her burgeoning work with the launch of “Flash of Intuition.” A one-of-a-kind, intuitively crafted fine art package with renowned Astrologer and author of “Rock Your Stars,” Holiday Mathis.  Inspired by a popular tattoo industry term, “Flash Of Intuition” includes an 8×10 hand-detailed collaborative fine art piece based on a significant date and printed on Hahnemuhle fine art paper. Also included in the package is a 15-minute bespoke meditation audio file and a remarkable tattoo stencil artwork that a favorite tattoo artist can use to bring the bespoke tattoo to life.

The event debuted the unique interactive experience with Friday and Holiday where invited guests enjoyed a fascinating discussion weaving mysticism, tattooing and symbolic meanings in life. The Life of Riley hosted the event with special guest Tricia Brouk, founder of “The Big Talk Academy”, who acted as emcee during the inspirational evening. In addition to charcuterie and curated cocktails, guests received content creator-inspired Inspiration Cards created by Friday and Holiday specially for the Flash Of Intuition launch attendees.
