Times are EDT
There is a stronger focus on partnership or one-on-one interactions today, dear Aries. Today is good for bringing a spirit of acceptance to your relationships. You may fully enjoy collaborating on a project or simply throwing ideas back and forth with someone close to you. You are especially cooperative and can be in a frame of mind in which you feel that virtually anything can be settled through negotiation, although you could nevertheless rebel a little if someone seems to be attempting to pull your strings this afternoon. Consider that your own desire for freedom is a sensitive matter these days, and as a result you may be seeing opposition where it doesn’t actually exist.
You can experience a compelling drive to be productive today, dear Taurus. You can accomplish a whole lot now, and this is all good and well if the energy you spin is not of the nervous variety. Don’t spread yourself too thin, and you’ll feel much better by the end of the day. Energy levels may vacillate now, and distractions can be plenty, but if you open yourself to the possibility that all will not go as planned and remain flexible, you can work around this rather well. Watch for exaggeration and unrealistic expectations this week – dream up possibilities but keep things real.
Today is strong for feeling in tune with others and with life itself, dear Gemini, even if this afternoon brings a desire to rebel or change plans. You are expressive and creative. You are naturally attracting positive attention your way, and adding an element of surprise to the mix can have nice results. Be flexible with others, or you may become frustrated with unreliability. While the day may bring unpredictable energy into your world, you might also have a chance to make changes or to become inspired by new ways of thinking, new approaches, and new creative ideas. Try not to move too fast now, however, or jump too quickly into a decision.
Today’s energies are good for your more intimate relationships, including family, dear Cancer, although surprises from the outside may throw off your schedule or make you feel a little nervous at times today. Even so, concentrating on creating more harmony in the home, whether through seeking balance in your interactions with close loved ones, or adding artistic touches to your home environment that create a sense of harmony and balance, can be successful if you are determined to be flexible to changes of schedules. It may be difficult to be patient with superiors or on the job now, but try not to let tensions with authority or outside demands interfere with home life or with down time.
There can be a lot on your mind today, dear Leo, and possibly too much at times. You may need to put your personal issues aside in order to take care of business today, at least until you feel that you have everything under control. Try to pace yourself and aim to be flexible if faced with changes in plans or outsides distractions. Otherwise it can be a decent day for sharing ideas, writing personal emails and notes with added flair, and ironing out differences with siblings, neighbors, and acquaintances. In just two days, however, Mercury will retrograde in the sector that rules these areas of life, and there could be some misunderstandings or the need to rework, redo, or even retract some things you are doing, saying, and considering now. Keep things light and open for best results.
There is a good feeling of aliveness and freshness to the day, dear Virgo, and yet you may be perfectly content to relax and breathe in this energy rather than forging ahead and forgetting to “stop and smell the roses”. This is perfectly appropriate with the Moon in your solar second house. Earthy, sensual activities that remind you how good it is to simply be alive will be most emotionally rewarding now. Entertain large ambitions, but only if you truly have room in your life for more. Business matters tend to go well today with patience, but feelings may be up and down, especially if money matters are brought up.
The tone is emotional today with the Moon in your sign challenging Uranus and Pluto, dear Libra. Restrictions or things that stifle your sense of freedom can be a little hard to take now, but you do have control over your impulses if you seek it. Others may oppose your plans or could be asserting themselves in frustrating ways. There can be a strong desire to take action today, although it may be difficult to know where to channel this energy. Your emotions and personal needs are emphasized, and may very well be worn on your sleeve! While it’s a strong day for self-motivation, this is a somewhat unstable week overall for important new endeavors.
With the Moon in your privacy sector all day, dear Scorpio, you could be a little closed emotionally, but you could also be gaining strength from a feeling of spiritual connection to all life. Desires and impulses are unusual, and you’re tuned in to subtle planes, seeing things you might not usually see. Patience will be rewarding now, but work-related issues can test yours this afternoon. Ideally you are able to set aside some time to yourself, as you are in no mood for competitive or demanding situations. Avoid over-exerting yourself. Try to detach from the world in some manner and retreat into a reflective space. Watch for exaggeration and too-high expectations today and in the coming week.
With the Moon in your solar eleventh house all day, dear Sagittarius, now is the time to be a team player and to recognize and appreciate the value of the group. You might sense, however, some underlying tensions and power games going on, so you will need to stay positive and rise above it. Humanitarian goals fill a need within you right now, and it’s best to focus on these. Vacillating emotions today might stem from deep-rooted fears of change that could upset your sense of security. There is a need to rise above these fears in order for growth to happen. You’re craving something unusual or unconventional in your social and romantic life – traditional is not necessarily very interesting to you right now.
Your attention is on your work or performance today with the Moon in your solar tenth house all day, dear Capricorn, but your personal life can interfere today, or there could be a disorganized feeling inside that prevents you from feeling entirely efficient. The desire to push personal plans ahead can be strong, but be willing to take it slowly. Acting alone may be better than recruiting others at the moment. A gentler approach, if you do want company, would yield the best results. You are especially aware of your image and of your responsibilities today.
You have an emotional need for different and exciting experiences today, dear Aquarius, which can lead you to explore new or out of the ordinary activities. This might also be experienced on the level of the mind. You might be in the position to teach, guide, or instruct others. It’s a good day for drawing upon your intuition to construct ideas and future plans. Movement and fresh air are desirable and helpful now, particularly if restlessness is an issue. Planetary shifts this week can put a veil over our thinking so that entirely new, important endeavors should probably wait for a better time, but there should be nice opportunities to work on projects already in progress.
Emotions run a little more deeply than usual, dear Pisces, and you’re in a good position to make some real sense of them, as there is some level of objectivity to the day as well. Self-discovery can be a theme now, even if you may feel challenged this afternoon by disorganization or outside interference. How you respond or react to stress or demands for change can certainly be an eye opener. It’s not necessarily a day for grand accomplishments, but it’s strong for inspiration, observation, and attracting what you want into your life.

Date & Time: 15 Sep 2015 11:14 am
Event: Tr-Tr Mar Sqq Ves
Description: Transiting Mars SesquiSquare Transiting Vesta
Energy and discipline clash now, making it difficult to accomplish what we set out to do, or leading to overwork. Issues of commitment and loyalty in our relationships or with projects may be inflamed now.
Self-confident, generous, warm-hearted, powerful leader, dramatic. Can be overly proud, vain, extravagant, arrogant.
Meticulous, discriminating, pure, practical, health conscious, hard working. Can be hyper-critical, petty and perfectionistic.
Even-handed, harmonious, artistic, diplomatic, balancing, strong sense of fairness. Can be over- compromising, appeasing, judgmental.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
There may be some insensitivity or lack of empathy now. We may be out of touch with what we’re feeling or with our emotional needs. We may be tougher than usual now, and more inclined to follow mental or practical considerations than we are to listen to our intuition.
BALANCE OF MODES
The modes are balanced.
LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
This is an energetic, impulsive, and subjective period of time. We are looking for new projects and opportunities.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on September 15th:
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).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect involving inner planets has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
