This is a strong day for exchanging ideas, as well as for drawing up plans, course outlines, and instructions. We’re open to new and alternative methods for getting things done, as well as progressive topics.
- The Moon is in Leo all day (until Thursday, January 8th, at 5:58 PM EST).
- The Moon is in its Full Moon phase.
- The Moon is waning.
Very good energy is with you today for drawing up plans, particularly related to finances, dear Aries, but also for any long-term goals and dreams. You have improved foresight, as well as the power of strategy, on your side. It’s also a strong time for presenting ideas and having important conversations. Emotionally, you’re inclined to look for specialized attention today. It may not always be forthcoming, but if you choose to please yourself by doing what you love, happiness will find you.
The nester in you is stimulated today, dear Taurus. With Jupiter in your home and family sector since July (and until August), it’s very easy for you to enjoy family and home life more than usual. Today, the Moon is in this sector as well. At times, people or circumstances can be trying to pull you from your cosy place, however, and it can be difficult to leave that comfort. Your charisma is strong right now, and you could easily find yourself in the same frame of mind as, or good understanding with, a partner or good friend. There is support in your relationships.
People are drawn to you and your ideas today, dear Gemini, and while you want to be heard, you’re also very willing to listen. The clearer and more persuasive you can be in your communications, the stronger you feel. Others may be looking to you for answers and insight, and possibly even for inspiration. It’s a good day to clear the air, persuade, and perhaps even gently provoke in order to encourage others to think more clearly as well. However, do watch for coming across as more lighthearted than you are actually feeling today, and to some extent this week, as people are likely to respond similarly, and you could feel vulnerable as a result.
You should find your emotions settling in today, dear Cancer. You are likely to feel both accomplished and comfortable, and perhaps in the mood for something special. However, there can be time when a close friend or a partner is perhaps a little jealous or threatened by that very quality of being settled and comfortable on your own. In truth, one can be comfortable in their own skin and making their own decisions and still very much enjoy a relationship. Good energy is with you for learning a skill or new bit of practical knowledge that truly helps you today.
This is a potentially excellent day for discussing options with others, dear Leo, with Mercury in your partnership zone connecting with Pluto and Pallas. It’s far easier to get a message across right now, and for conversations to really make sense. Communications tend to be orderly and clear. However, while relationships can be stronger right now, the Moon’s presence in your sign all day sends you the message that today is more about you – your needs, wants, desires, and feelings. Expressing yourself through fun and interesting activities is appropriate now. There is no room today for dwelling on the past – it’s a time for focusing on what can be accomplished now.
This is a day for taking stock, staying in the background, and laying low, dear Virgo. In the middle of a Jupiter transit to your privacy sector (from July 2014 to August 2015), you’re learning about the true benefits of solitude, and building faith in your inner strength, ability to not only survive but thrive on your own, and to appreciate time for stillness, reflection, and comfort with your vulnerabilities. Today is good for these activities, although there will be times when what you think you should be doing and what you truly want to do seem impossible to combine. Good energy is with you for teaching in some way, even if it’s through the written word, as you are clearer and more orderly in your thoughts and speech. Others admire you for your mind.
While the day can be strong for making connections, dear Libra, if you’ve been overloading your social calendar or if you’ve been taking on too many side projects recently, you’re likely to feel it strongly now, perhaps especially in your work and home life. Try not to expect too much from yourself right now, and aim to be more selective in what you take on. Strong energy is with you today for self-expression, particularly of the romantic and/or creative variety. A relative might have a good suggestion or idea about a business venture or simply a new method that helps you in your daily life. You’re drawn to lively exchanges.
This is a good day for solving a problem and figuring something out, particularly for improving your finances or home life. People are generally sensing the comfort you have these days in your role as a leader or in your career, recognizing your natural talents, and perhaps offering you opportunities to advance further as a result. What you should strive to do is to avoid taking on too much on the one hand, and resting on your laurels on the other. Find a happy medium – and the key word is “happy”. You need balance now. Think in big terms, and tend to the details when you’re tuned in to them at a later date.
This is a wonderful day for communications, dear Sagittarius – one of the best of the month. Your thoughts and ideas are more coherent, less disjointed, and well understood by others. You may be in the position to instruct or teach others in some manner. Your intelligence and insight can enhance your image, and perhaps your own self-image as well right now. You are also drawing people to you who can help you give form to your ideas or who help round them out. You can also be quite drawn to healing techniques and self-improvement now. Mingle, connect, and share, or focus on a particular project that requires clear thinking and plans.
You can easily draw upon lessons from the past in order to improve the present, dear Capricorn, and this especially applies to your practical affairs, including finances. It’s a good time to learn something new and constructive, as your mind is clear and open. The desire to gain knowledge is also there. Your own knowledge or insight can draw others to you as well, and while you can often be a bit of a loner when it comes to learning and processing information, today is good for teaming up and sharing. Someone you meet could prove to have valuable insight that helps you as you move forward.
The Moon is moving towards its monthly conjunction to Jupiter today, dear Aquarius, and this can serve to expand your feelings about others in positive ways. Your closest relationships are especially important to your sense of emotional satisfaction today, but there can also be some tension or misunderstanding when it comes to your need for time to yourself, which is almost as great. Take some time to yourself, but be sure to mingle and communicate, as good ideas are circulating, your mind is especially clear, and others can be inspired by the connections you are making and the insights you have. People are very much drawn to your very unique way of thinking – it’s part of your charm right now, and your charm is considerable these days.
Supporting others, being useful and needed, and helping out are vital to your sense of emotional fulfillment today, dear Pisces, although you can also be quite sensitive if these things are not being acknowledged right now. You are especially generous with your help and support these days, but sometimes you take on too much and need to draw up some boundaries. If you concentrate on doing only the things you truly love to do for others, then you’re in a healthier place if these things go unnoticed today. Watch for a tendency to feel super-human when it comes to work, chores, or health routines – be as moderate as you can.

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 5; Fixed 10; Mutable 2
You do not enjoy change. You expect others to be reliable, like yourself.
You find it difficult to adapt to new situations. You tend to be inflexible when faced with the demands of change and other people.
LUNAR PHASE: FULL MOON
Moon 180 to 135 degrees behind the Sun.
We are concerned mainly with the nature of relationships. Our concern is not limited to personal relationships, but relationships of all kinds. Our cards are on the table.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on January 7th:
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).
