Mars enters Aquarius, and while energy levels can fluctuate (Aquarius can be moody), we’re generally well-equipped to invent, dare, innovate, and reform, until January 12th.
- The Moon is in Taurus all day (until Friday, December 5th, at 5:27 AM EST).
- The Moon is in its Waxing Gibbous phase.
- Mars enters Aquarius today, where Mars will transit until January 12, 2015.
Thinking outside of the box becomes you now. It’s a strong day for money and love, and also for an open, positive spirit. You could be sharp in a debate, fluent when expressing yourself, and daring in a balanced way. Honesty and warmth in your relationships can get you over a hump. You are generating good feelings that can benefit you today and in the future as well, so be sure to take the time to act on charitable impulses. You can experience a strong desire to create and share, and to enhance or improve your surroundings and/or personal image.
This week and peaking now, there can be unusual coincidences, chance meetings, interesting news, or other subtle surprises that help you to sort out something from your past. You are in need of a regeneration of sorts, perhaps as something needs to be put behind you, forgiven, or put into a tidy place so that you can move forward happily. It’s a good time to quit a bad habit. There can be an urge to break a taboo or possibly to expose or create a secret! You are feeling a little spontaneous. Behind the scenes activities can be working in your favor. Relationships with family and loved ones can get a boost now.
The day brings positive, uplifting energy for connecting with others, particularly when it’s one-on-one, but all-around as well. You are a little more spontaneous than usual, and others are open to change and progress as well. Putting your head together with someone, you might come up with a great idea or opportunity that may not occur to you on a regular day. It’s also a good day to socialize and fraternize, join a group or attend a meeting, and otherwise make connections. As well, communications and sharing ideas can be fortunate today. Be generous, open, and friendly.
Opportunities to advance in a business or at/through work, to make more money now and in the future, and inspiring ideas can be part of your day. You can come to a new understanding about career or financial matters and you feel that you are truly moving ahead as a result. Don’t ignore new insights. Money-making ideas may be golden. You might come across a new and innovative diet or health program now. You are generous and want to share, possibly through lending your help or performing a service.
Even if a little part of you has some doubts today, allowing yourself to break the routine and to be a little adventurous can help you to overcome some of your fears. Small personal triumphs can be experienced now. Higher education pursuits can thrive. Finding yourself on the same (or similar!) page with a significant other can be rewarding. A constructive conversation can figure prominently today. People are drawn to your unique ways of expressing yourself. Connecting, circulating, and networking are important now, leading to good things.
You can be feeling quite refreshed today, from the inside out. Spontaneity and flexibility are the keys to success right now. Intimate matters are likely to be strong, and events seem to occur that help you with the process of moving forward. Allow yourself to enjoy others by detaching yourself a little from your fears and insecurities, as good energy is with you for pushing beyond your usual, often self-imposed, limits and barriers. Work-related matters can also benefit today from a progressive approach. There can be unusual coincidences that occur that perhaps the past is not where you want to be. You can feel invigorated by contributing or helping anonymously.
Your social life can get a boost, even if there is a slight tendency to go overboard. Interactions with classmates, siblings, and acquaintances can be beneficial. Education, communications, and things related to transport can all benefit. You are coping with life’s surprises or stresses with good humor, and approaching life itself with more spirit and faith today. There can be unexpected assistance or kindness from a neighbor or acquaintance. Pleasant surprises may also be in store with a partner or close friend. Communications are more open-minded and forward-looking than usual. It’s a good day for reaching out, checking in with others just for the sake of saying hello, and learning new things. In fact, learning pursuits are favored now.
There can be good feelings about your career/reputation and optimism about your future today. You’ll feel stronger if you feel there is meaning in what you do, and this is likely today. You are less likely to dwell, and more interested in living in the present and looking forward to what’s coming next. Ideas are fresh and insights can come that involve your life path, career path, resources, work, or money. You want to get on with things and break new ground rather than worry about what’s already happened. Others tend to treat you well, and may very well be quite generous to you right now.
A very progressive aspect occurs today involving the Sun in your sign, as well as a positive aspect between your ruler, Jupiter, and Venus in your sign. This combination doesn’t happen often. Look at your life from a new perspective entirely, as the day’s energies favor this process. Both you and others are in an especially fair and impartial frame of mind. Treat others, both friends and partners, as true equals. There can be opportunities and opening doors in matters surrounding romance, travel, education, creativity, or children. Freedom of movement is important, and routines can be stifling. Personal magnetism is through the roof today!
This is a good time to see intimate relationships and family life in a new light. You can feel quite invigorated from the inside out, as you are facing your fears, pushing yourself a little out of your comfort zone, and succeeding as you do so. It’s a good time to consider what needs improving – there isn’t the usual sense of grief about having to make changes or leaving something behind. There can be a joy in intimate connections and learning new things about yourself or someone close to you. Personal finances can do well now. Attracting others’ support is easy and natural today.
You’re in an especially open frame of mind about making changes today. A new avenue for communication can open, or there can be a particularly open and honest conversation with someone special that breaks ground or moves you to a whole new level. Communicate, and encourage others to do so as well. Much can be learned, and much can be gained. There is joy to be found in your relationships, and your own joie de vivre attracts positive circumstances and helpful people into your experience. This is a generally good time for social gatherings and making friends.
Benefits in the material world are possible today. Some of you could come across a great buy or acquire a new and handy item. However, it’s very much about the spirit of the day that improves practical affairs. A positive, progressive attitude towards work can also improve health, and there can be some form of revival of interest in projects or a particular life path experienced now that puts a spring in your step. In some way, blockages seem to disappear right now, and you can see that there’s a way through. Being of both a practical and optimistic frame of mind benefits you all around, and decisions tend to be strong as a result.

You are a highly-motivated person with many goals and aspirations for the future. You are vital and spontaneous, often enjoying the challenge of travelling down new and adventurous roads in your life. Your enthusiasm is irrepressible. Your weakness lies in your tendency to exaggerate and your inability to cope with the more mundane activities in life.
You lack objectivity – the ability to stand back and view aspects of life from a detached and rational perspective. You have difficulty making decisions and in the process of weighing up the pros and cons in a logical manner.
You are out of kilter with your emotions. Crying or losing your cool in front of other people would be a horrifying thought, let alone action, for you. You often lack compassion for others in your human relationships, and need to learn to honor both your own and other people’s feelings.

The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on December 4th:
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 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.
