The Moon is in Aries all day, dear Aries, and this transit usually keeps you on your toes. However, with a Mars-Neptune aspect influencing the day, you’re a little more subdued. Intimate matters are warm, comfortable, and natural now. You may be focusing on finding some measure of peace with the past or exploring more profound needs, desires, and feelings. Your mood is hopeful, lenient, and accepting. You’re inclined to slow down and flow along with your life rather than push yourself. You’re likely to find inspiration in hidden places or your imagination. This is a time for believing in your plans and having faith in your ability to bring your dreams to reality.
The Moon continues to transit your privacy sector today, dear Taurus, and while this does incline you to be a little more introspective than usual, you benefit from making connections today. It’s a good time for helping and enjoying friends or a partner. Collaboration or shared activities can thrive now. You may be putting a little more faith in a dream, project, or person today, and it feels good! It’s also likely to have positive results. People seem more accepting and generous, and pressures tend to ease. You might be fascinated by someone now. For some, a friend, networking, or group activity might facilitate a positive connection with someone else. You might bond more closely with a friend or partner, especially as you give one another freedom to be yourselves.
This is an excellent time for coming to terms with overthinking and worrying, dear Gemini. Today, you see these things as a waste of psychic energy and time, and you recognize the benefits of relaxing activities or even vigorous ones that help you release stress. You might happen upon a new idea or program related to work or health that truly benefits you. This can also be a time for a reputation boost. You’re gravitating towards endeavors that help refresh your spirit now. Problems are easy to resolve, not by dwelling on them, but by pulling back and allowing the creative process to happen before returning to take care of them. This is also a great time to help, support, or provide a service for others.
You can find new and perhaps alternative ways to express yourself today, dear Cancer, with a Mars-Neptune aspect harmonizing with your sign. People tend to respond to you particularly well. This influence is good for knowing when actions and gestures are more useful than words, and when dropping a trivial matter makes the most sense. Shared goals and visions are appreciated, and imperfections in yourself and others are either ignored or, if they are recognized, seem quite endearing! You could be drawn to someone who exudes strength or who easily and readily takes the lead. News might be touching and inspirational. Your own mood is cooperative, and you may be meeting with people who either share and reinforce your perspective on life or fully appreciate it. Once beyond a speed bump this morning, you tend to flow along comfortably to the rhythms around you today.
While the morning can stir up conflicts, as the day advances, divine energy is with you for resolving troubles, dear Leo, even if these are merely within yourself. You are more confident about getting around obstacles in your path today. Negative thoughts and feelings of resentment can be released through massage, body work, or other activities that relieve stress and calm you down. With Mars and Neptune harmonizing now, physical and creative release from pressure can be beneficial. Today you can be especially attracted to those things that boost your spirit and make you feel vital, and the healing arts can be particularly of interest right now. Some form of spiritual or creative escape, if you can manage it, would be excellent right now.
Your private life continues to entertain you, dear Virgo. You’re not always sure what you want from others these days, but you’re keeping things interesting. As the day advances, a Mars-Neptune influence comes into play. Sharing ideas, ideals, and spiritual goals with someone can be rewarding – even a bonding experience. Your own needs and desires may come to the surface – those desires that you don’t always acknowledge or connect/identify with. For some, partnerships thrive now as you can experience a strong feeling of intuitive connection. Sometimes we need to surrender to the unknown by letting go of the desire to control our lives, and today can be good for building up your faith in this way. Someone may help release you from a pressure or worry, or you might enjoy helping someone out in a similar fashion. This is an excellent time to express your ideas or assert yourself in persuasive, charming ways.
You seek out others’ company or feedback today, dear Libra, but you’re also inclined to assert your independence. As the day moves forward, you’re tapping into your needs for fantasy, dreams, and the magical and imaginative side of life. Even with business or practical matters, including money and work, you’re inclined to use a natural, organic, and intuitive approach. In fact, you have a stronger feel for what may be a good buy, business move, or strategy. The natural arts can appeal and soothe significantly now – earthy activities, photography, pottery, and so forth – anything that gives form to your feelings. A partner or significant person in your life can be more understanding. Aim to let go of negative thought patterns or release tensions in beneficial ways. This can be a great time to help and support others. You might seek to make adjustments to your work that align more comfortably with your mission in life.
While there can be some scattered energy early today, dear Scorpio, as the day moves forward, you’re in excellent shape for finding ways to heal and for enjoying a slower, more gentle pace. You’re in great shape for enhancing your relationships through positive actions or gestures. You may feel moved to act on your instincts or compassionate feelings, and the rewards are great. More confidence in a special someone feels good and reflects back to you positively. Both competitive and cooperative activities can do well now. Even with Mars in your sign encouraging you to get moving, its trine to Neptune today suggests that it’s best to take things naturally and patiently right now. Energy levels tend to be even and smooth. Aime to release pressures to control your day and others. Creatively and romantically, you are in good form, and in a good light, as well.
This is a good day both for feeling positive about the future and for winding down and enjoying the moment, dear Sagittarius. Your attention turns to inner joy and private matters today, and dreams are rich and inspiring. Your intuition is elevated to new levels. This is a time for processing things, understanding your motivations, getting in touch with hidden desires, acting on compassion, and exercising patience. Healing energy is with you, and the focus can be turned inward or directed towards helping others, and possibly a bit of both! Especially as the day advances, you’re happy to release negative feelings. Aim to clear the decks for future action.
There can be a wildcard feel to the morning, dear Capricorn, but as the day advances, you’ll find things work more in your favor if you exercise patience, wind down, and enjoy the moment. You have no time for conflict today. The usual goals or desires that motivate you tend to fall into the background long enough to reveal your more spiritual or neglected emotional areas. You are looking for inspiration, and something you read or that’s communicated in your networks can be just the ticket. Conversations can be inspiring as well, and friendly gestures quite magical. Communicating your intentions is exceptionally natural right now, which is refreshing as there can be little worse than having to explain yourself at every turn.
The day can begin a little more nervously than usual with the Moon in your communications sector encouraging you to keep mentally busy, dear Aquarius. However, a Mars-Neptune aspect comes into influence as the day advances, and the usual motivators may fade out to reveal your more unusual desires. You’re more inclined to approach the remainder of the day intuitively than intellectually. Your noble behavior may pave the road for future success today. There is a rather natural business sense with you today that has little to do with facts and figures. Your hunches or ideas can be very much worth your attention. Slowing down right now can help you move forward more confidently.
This is a day for tapping into needs that you may miss when you’re going about your usual routine, dear Pisces, as Mars and Neptune form a trine. People around you are likely to appreciate and enjoy your point of view and unique perspective. You may be moved to reach out and support or help someone in need. Energy levels smooth out now, and you’re feeling very much in your element. Look for ways to reduce stress if these things don’t find you first, and aim to let go of unreasonable pressures. There are times when you need to disengage from tension or competitiveness, and this is one of them. It’s also an excellent time to tune into or reconnect with your dreams, hopes, and wishes.

Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
BALANCE OF SIGNS
Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Intense, magnetic, penetrating perception, power to confront. Can be destructive, vengeful, jealous, overly dramatic.
Disciplined, responsible, reliable, industrious, conscientious, practical, achieving. Can be pessimistic, overly conventional, rigid, materialistic, callous.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
We are especially in touch with the physical world. We consider what we’ve learned and experienced in the past in order to make the most of the present. We can be cautious, practical, and possibly unimaginative. We are deliberate and can pace ourselves well. We need hands-on experience and are not impressed with theory as much as we are with results. Routines are tolerable and comforting.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
BALANCE OF MODES
We are ready to take action and to take on challenges, and can become frustrated with stagnant conditions.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on December 27th:
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 the Moon 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 lifetime).
