The Aries Moon’s need for action today can be a little more disruptive than it was yesterday, as we tend to challenge current circumstances if they feel limiting or restrictive in any way. We also have a taste for the unusual, and this can lead to acting on whims.
- The Moon is in Aries all day (until Monday, January 26th, at 11:37 AM).
- The Moon is in its Waxing Crescent phase.
- The Moon is waxing.
- Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius (until February 11th).
The Moon transits your sign all day, dear Aries, and you’re in strong touch with your emotions, although your needs can feel quite urgent. This morning, there can be some frustration with a person in a position of authority or with a responsibility. Attempts to move forward seem to be thwarted in little, irritating ways, but you are especially resilient, bouncing back quickly. You can feel impulsive at times now, and attractions (to material objects, situations, or people) can be unusual or sudden, but may not last for very long. Ideally, these simply stimulate you to think in different ways.
Restlessness is possible today, dear Taurus, but with the Moon in your privacy sector all day, it’s better to keep activities simple so that you can find ways to renew and refresh your emotions. Be wary of breaking commitments and promises to others. You can have some spells of impatience today that might lead to taking action on a matter that you might later regret. Act from the heart instead of blindly reacting.
Although your life sometimes feels like a roller coaster ride, part of you might enjoy the challenge, dear Gemini, if it’s a reasonable one. Today, you can be a little fussy, however, and you should watch that you don’t attempt to fix situations or people when it would be better to let things be – for things to play out naturally. Otherwise, there is good energy for personal attraction. People are noticing you for your more appealing qualities, even if you are in a rather detached mood.
There can be a standstill with someone, or a delay that restricts you from moving forward or taking action early today, dear Cancer. Relations could be a little off, as everyone seems to be bumping into one another. However, there is also good energy for family connections. An unusual desire or whim may take hold, however, and send you on a wild goose chase, or simply a new direction of discovery. Interestingly, attractions can be both alluring and repulsing now, but are likely to fade rather quickly.
You could be dealing with crossed wires or miscommunication that leaves you a little blind if you’re about to make an important decision today, dear Leo, so it’s better to wait it out. It can be difficult to judge the true value of things, people, and possibly even situations, just for now. There can be some fickleness in relationships today, so that it’s not an ideal day for getting close to someone. There could be a broken agreement or cancelled social engagement to deal with.
The feeling of being “on the fence” is not the most heartening of feelings for you, dear Virgo, but waiting to make a decision is a good idea. Try to focus on positive, productive tasks, because the energy of the day is such that you can make mountains out of molehills. Avoid trying to persuade others to make changes, as there is somewhat rebellious energy to the day that can keep people from humbling themselves to others’ advice. Despite this, your powers of attraction are strong today, and you may very well think up creative ways for relating now that are a pleasing break from the traditional.
Easy cooperation with those close to you may only be a dream today if you’re sticking to familiar patterns of relating, dear Libra, so start the day with the idea that you’ll be relying on yourself and if others eventually begin to warm up, then it will be a bonus. The need for excitement is strong today, yet you’re also hungry for balance and steadiness. The result may be a bit of a tug of war, but only if you let yourself get caught up in what others are and aren’t doing. Try not to let sudden desires take over and spoil the fun, as there is good energy for relating to people on different terms than the norm, if you look for it.
It’s better not to put your faith in others’ schedules or promises today, dear Scorpio, as there can be changes of mind and of heart right now. If you’re feeling antsy, it’s likely that you need to change things up a little, as traditional methods and patterns of relating don’t seem to satisfy or work well today. Family life may be a bit scattered as well, but it’s nothing a refreshing change of pace can’t resolve.
If you feel cooped up today, you’re unlikely to simply shrug and make the best of it, dear Sagittarius, but it’s probably the best idea to do so. Try to channel your energy into tasks that require physical effort or that truly improve your personal environment, as energy left unchanneled could easily translate into nervous tension. Satisfy an itch for change in small, harmless ways instead of making sweeping decisions that you may not be fully equipped to make for now.
What begins as a fun competition or useful shared activity can turn into a problematic situation all too readily today, dear Capricorn, so it may be better to work by yourself and for yourself just for the time being. Your desire to do something, however, is strong, and so it’s unlikely you’ll just walk away. Keep yourself busy in some sort of solo effort, and you’ll do far better than you would in cooperative endeavors, just for today. Also, watch for very sudden wants and desires, particularly when shopping! Impulse buys may not be wise for the moment.
You’re likely to be feeling a little touchy or sensitive today, dear Aquarius, and it can be very hard to concentrate on practical tasks. Productivity may be low today, as you desire for ease and pleasure is stronger than usual and can interfere with work. Watch for overindulgence. What may be at the heart of this is a need for a change of pace. Make changes mindfully, even if they’re only about mixing up your schedule or looking into a new interest.
There can be a feeling today, dear Pisces, that you need to validate everything you do, and this can be very frustrating. Keep in mind that the need for approval limits freedom. You can be see-sawing between caution and the desire to push forward, and decision making can certainly suffer as a result. If you can, leave it for a time when more facts are available to you and you’re more confident and aware of what you truly want.
*Remember to read horoscopes for the sign of your Ascendant and your Sun sign.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 4; Taurus 0; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 0; Sagittarius 1; Capricorn 1; Aquarius 7; Pisces 3
Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
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 6; Earth 1; Air 7; Water 3
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 5; Fixed 8; Mutable 4
The modes are balanced in this chart.
LUNAR PHASE: CRESCENT
Moon 45 to 90 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are assertive, eager to leave the past behind and to get on with the future. We have faith in our own abilities to rise to challenges.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on January 25th:
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).

NEPTUNE IN PISCES
It is important to note that Neptune takes about 164 years to make a complete cycle, spending about thirteen years in each sign.
