There is not a lot of stability to the day, and relationships may be the first to suffer. Insecurities can prevent us from getting close to one another. Disruptions can pull up buried frustrations, which we should probably examine more closely. Aim to learn something new about yourself today.
- The Moon is in Gemini all day (until Saturday, December 3rd, at 8:07 PM EST).
- The Moon is in its Waxing Gibbous phase.
- The Moon is waxing.
There can be a scattered energy to the day, dear Aries. There can be a tendency to challenge authority or tradition, although results may not be favorable. Tone down rough edges today and tomorrow and consider ways to make changes without making so many waves. Watch for a defensive, impatient, or provocative manner that instigates rather than takes charge. Otherwise, conditions are favorable for communicating with ease.
There can be surprising new information that throws off your schedule or plans today, dear Taurus, or there can be a tendency to fixate on a problem that has been left unresolved. The regular routine seems especially boring or restricting to you today. Instead of instigating conflicts with others, try to satisfy your desire for something different by trying a new image or style, different clothes, or better yet, something new to learn. The desire to shirk a responsibility can be strong today, but is unlikely to satisfy in the long run.
Surprises or changes in plans today generally point to a need to adjust expectations and attitudes. If you’re feeling especially tense or restless, try to channel excess energy into pushing forward a project or something productive. Investigating new approaches and experimenting with new methods can satisfy an itch for doing something different and unusual. While it can seem natural to part with things or even people now, wait until you’ve thought things through. Breaking a commitment or promise may be the proverbial straw the broke the camel’s back.
There is a stronger need for time to recoup and recharge today, dear Cancer. You’re likely to be a little withdrawn. There can be some difficult or erratic energy in a relationship, particularly a partner, parent, or authority figure. Others can seem especially demanding later today, or, alternatively, you might be expecting a lot from others. There can be insensitivity, coarseness, or an impersonal energy that makes you uncomfortable. Try not to play into it, and avoid confrontations with others, if possible.
Creative energy is powerful today, but it can be hard to focus it productively, dear Leo. Do what you can to tap into and make something useful of it. You may stumble upon a new way to approach an old health or work problem from upset or interrupted plans today, so try to stay positive and centered if your schedule changes at a moment’s notice. Try to be patient with others’ opinions or half-assed directions and instructions.
If you can manage to work at your own pace today, take the opportunity, dear Virgo. This applies to formal work or simple routines and tasks. While you are a person who does play nicely with others, you’re not in any mood to be slowed down right now. As the day progresses, there is difficult and even volatile energy with us. Watch today and tomorrow for gossip, particularly related to love relationships. Consciously pull your energy away from tense situations and let go of stress.
Someone in your life could surprise you today, Libra, and you are accepting nothing at face value. There can be disconcerting competitive energy today and tomorrow with family or a partner, and it can be quite difficult to totally relax or unwind as a result. Keep yourself open and flexible, because sometimes unexpected change can help us move forward and away from bad habits. Think of new ways to relate to others and freshen your mind with alternative possibilities.
There can be some restlessness or chaos to the day, dear Scorpio, and you may be feeling too scattered to be very productive. If you’ve been suppressing frustration, today it may come out. Avoid mishaps by being more cautious with mechanical things and while walking. Stress can have a way of aggravating health problems, so do what you can to relax. Above all, avoid over scheduling. Know your limits and respect them.
These days, you have a strong desire to take control of the more practical affairs in your life, dear Sagittarius. Today, you may be dealing with inconsistencies, and you are reminded that control is never entirely ours. If things are the same old, same old today, you may feel like bolting. It may be necessary to play it by ear. Changes in plans can actually stimulate new approaches and ideas, so keep an open mind, but avoid pushing things too far. Expect some impatience, particularly in dealings with romantic interests or friends. Also be careful with your valuables, as you are a little more inclined to lose or misplace something.
If you’ve suppressed or buried your frustrations, the Sun and Uranus approaching a square today can bring them to the surface, in possibly erratic or disruptive ways, dear Capricorn. Family relationships can be a little tense or strained. You are not especially content with routine living, and recognizing this is important, because if you don’t, you may unwittingly blame your frustrations on the innocent! Try to take a break from the routine and find new ways to enjoy yourself if things are feeling too stuffy or stifling, but also seriously consider what you may need to stay stimulated and engaged. A little self-knowledge can go a long way today.
An instinctive need for change is with you today – from the inside out – and circumstances are such that you need to shed yourself of attitudes that are no longer working for you, dear Aquarius. Today and tomorrow, there can be a tendency to fixate on a certain topic that is not necessarily good for you. You can be quite stubborn when it comes to doing things on your own or your own way, and this can lead to conflicts with others. There can be a temptation to renege on a promise or to get out of an obligation, simply because you’re bored with the routine, but this is likely to backfire on you eventually, so give it more thought.
There is a strong awareness of the need to fix or change your interactions with others or your long-term goals today and tomorrow, dear Pisces. Some of you may be especially motivated to come up with ideas for new projects – to plant some seeds, so to speak. Others might be especially motivated to fix a friendship. While there can be some resistance encountered today, overall, you’re in a strong frame of mind. People may be emotionally excitable, and schedules may not be honored. Prioritize your tasks early in the day so that you don’t become victim to a chaotic, distracting atmosphere.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 1; Taurus 0; Gemini 3; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 0; Sagittarius 1; Capricorn 8; Aquarius 2; Pisces 1
Agile, versatile, inquisitive, flowing, conversational, airy, many ideas. Can be volatile, superficial, changeable, restless and inconsistent.
Disciplined, responsible, reliable, industrious, conscientious, practical, achieving. Can be pessimistic, overly conventional, rigid, materialistic, callous.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 3; Earth 8; Air 5; Water 1
You are a practical and efficient, hands-on person. You can be relied on to take a common-sense approach to most matters. Your down-to-earth manner stands you in good stead for the daily chores of life. Your weakness lies in your sometimes stubborn refusal to make changes in your life. You tend to stifle both your own and other people’s enthusiasm.
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.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 9; Fixed 3; Mutable 5
You enjoy challenge and action, and become frustrated when you have no recourse for change. You expect others to also rise to a challenge.
LUNAR PHASE: GIBBOUS
Moon 135 to 180 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are resourceful and goal-oriented, seeking purpose and meaning in our lives. We are seeking knowledge to add value to our lives.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on January 2nd:
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. (This is the case for daily astrology influences, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
