Today’s Birthday (10/1/15).

Blessings sprout in peaceful self-analysis this year. Disciplined communications reap long-term benefits. Spring eclipses bring new beginnings in school and health, with breakthroughs in personal growth. Autumn eclipses inspire a retrospective and planning phase, before a turning point arises. It’s all for home and family.
