We are more naturally helpful and supportive today, more on an emotional or spiritual level than in a hands-on way after very early morning. Helping others can be rewarding, and can also help us to heal. We tend to be generous with our compassion, but may also need moments to escape and be by ourselves.
- The Moon is in Pisces all day (until Saturday, January 24th, at 8:31 AM EST).
- The Moon is void from 6:12 AM EST forward (until 8:31 AM tomorrow).
- The Moon is in its New phase until 1:31 PM / Waxing Crescent phase after 1:31 PM.
- The Moon is waxing.
- Mercury is retrograde (until February 11th).
This is a good time for catching your breath, dear Aries. Temporarily letting go of material goals and concerns can be helpful and healing. You are naturally inclined to pull back from situations and people who seem to demand too much of you with the Moon in the sign just behind yours. There can be a need or desire to help someone out today, or you could be playing a supportive role. Behind the scenes work is possible now. You might benefit from taking extra time and space to yourself, particularly if you need to get work done.
The Moon spends all day in your social sector today, dear Taurus, and emotions are stronger when it comes to matters of friendship. While there may be some doubts or confusing situations involving a friend, but there is probably no need to stress over it. In fact, something positive can come out of these things – clearing the air may be refreshing. However, with the energies of the day, resolving issues tends to be indirect, which can actually be beneficial. You might also play mediator today. There can be pleasure in allowing others more freedom. This is a good day for forgiving, moving on, and seeing situations and people through a more compassionate lens.
There can be real solutions to uncover today when it comes to business, work, or other practical affairs, dear Gemini, but the trick is to avoid pushing to find them. In fact, this is not the time for step-by-step, logical, or structured approaches – it’s better to let intuition come out to play, and sometimes this means backing off from a problem temporarily. At times, you can feel a little alone when it comes to your goals or career these days, but today, you might find it’s easier to share some of your ideas or ambitions. Compassion and patience are in larger supply today, and you can be especially imaginative.
This is not an ideal time for strict, structured, or overly logical activities, dear Cancer. Your mind may begin to wander, and if you have the luxury to let it happen, do so. It’s a time for freeform, creative activities and conversations. Emotional considerations tend to take precedence over material ones right now. There can be a nice show of support between a partner and you, or a sense that sharing beliefs and ideas leads to a deeper, improved bond. Your own self-expression improves with a greater understanding of, and compassion for, others.
There can be vaguely troubling feelings today, dear Leo, and your moods can take you in unusual directions. Emotional issues that have remained unresolved tend to make themselves known this morning, and something that occurs can stir up an uncomfortable or even painful memory. Take the lesson from this and move forward, but only after you’ve explored your feelings a little. Anger can be a mask or defense mechanism that allows us to avoid feeling hurt or rejected, but this delays healing, so make a point of allowing yourself to feel rather than react. It’s in fact a good day for some self-pampering. There is also good energy for research and work, especially if it’s unplanned or creative.
Your emotions can be up and down today if you pay too much attention to how others are responding to you, dear Virgo. You might be especially sensitive and easily offended this morning. However, your interactions with others have a lot to teach you now, and if you humble yourself to those lessons, you can benefit, and so can your relationships. Virgos tend not to strive for exact balance in their relationships, and this is in many ways is a good thing as you don’t get too hung up about evening scores, but too often you accept the shorter end of the stick. Aim to treat yourself more fairly.
If doors don’t seem to be opening for you today, dear Libra, check that you’re sending out the right messages to others. If you’re conflicted on the inside, the signals you’re sending may not be clear. While there can be some off timing today, you can view this as a message to get into better touch with what you want. Aim to remove emotional blocks in your relationships in small ways today. Decisions can be difficult right now as you may be too easily swayed by others’ input. However, this is a good day for bringing more imagination to a project around the home or at work. Strict attention to detail is not favored right now, but more freeform activities can fare very well.
This may not be the best day for practical affairs with the Moon in Pisces and Mercury only just past its retrograde station, dear Scorpio, but it’s just fine for more creative enterprises. There is also very good energy for sharing ideas and supporting one another. Your mind is especially fertile with Ceres in your communications sector. Interestingly, Ceres will transit this part of your chart for a total of about six months in 2015, encouraging negotiation skills, teaching, guiding, and sharing ideas. Today, with its connection to Neptune in your creative sector, others are appreciating, and can benefit from, your unique perspective. You may very well help someone out of a jam with good advice and encouraging words. Instincts for who needs your support are strong.
This is a good day for slowing down a little, dear Sagittarius, and generally taking it easy if you can. It’s potentially strong for warmth with family and loved ones, as there is more compassion and emotional support available. There can be a desire to pamper, give a gift, or otherwise show your affection or concern. While there is a strong emphasis on connecting and learning in your life these days, today you’re better off tending to your needs for security and taking part in familiar activities. You may be hungry for nurturing, support, and comfort today, but if it isn’t forthcoming, don’t stress over it – pamper yourself a little.
With Chiron a long-term guest in your solar third house, your mode of expression is changing as you learn the power of your words, dear Capricorn. You are learning to express yourself more gently and sensitively, which in turn improves relationships of all kinds. This is not something that is put on or forced in order to win brownie points – it’s in fact quite sincere, as it’s about allowing yourself to reveal the gentler, compassionate side of your nature through your tone of voice and choice of words. Today is better for freeform activities rather than structured learning and work, and for bringing more imagination to your life.
There is a stronger focus on your personal plans and needs in recent days, dear Aquarius, but there are some signs to temporarily slow some things down in order to get perspective. Yesterday, it was Mercury in your sign turning retrograde. Today, the Moon is in your solar second house – a sector that favors stopping to smell the roses, and checking that you have the right personal resources to carry out your plans. Patience is favored now. This can also be a time for supporting someone who needs assistance.
You are expressing yourself in subtle yet effective ways today, dear Pisces. With a strong emphasis on your solar twelfth house these days, you’re inclined to hold parts of you back, but with Mars in your sign, you’re not shying away from activity. Today, the Moon is in your sign all day, and you’re looking for more direct contact or outlets for expressing yourself. There can be sudden awareness of feelings that you’ve had for awhile but perhaps have been putting aside or keeping at bay. You may be in the position to teach or guide someone now, or your favorite, to inspire, as you are more comfortable with inspiring than you are direct instruction.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 1; Taurus 0; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 0; Sagittarius 1; Capricorn 1; Aquarius 7; Pisces 6
Humanitarian, innovative, group conscious, progressive, serving others. Can be rebellious, eccentric, aloof, emotionally superficial, overly extroverted.
Compassionate, sensitive, self-sacrificing, gentle, intuitive. Can be escapist, impractical, hyper- sensitive, gullible.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 3; Earth 1; Air 7; Water 6
You have difficulty coping with the realities of every day life. Practical daily chores seem beyond your capabilities, and you have difficulty concentrating on matters at hand.
You are objective and philosophical, preferring to view life from an intellectual perspective. Your rational mind will outweigh your feelings every time, as you consider the world of emotions to be irrational. You have a high sense of fairness, and a logical thought process. Your weakness lies in the fact that you view emotions in a disparaging light.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 2; Fixed 8; Mutable 7
You prefer to follow in other people’s footsteps rather than initiate actions. You can be relied on to come up with the goods as long as someone else has the initial ideas. Your survival mechanisms are weak.
LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are impulsive, always looking for new opportunities to express our ideas. We react from our own subjective viewpoints. We enjoy starting new projects.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on January 23rd:
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).
