You have a lot to learn about yourself and your needs through your interactions with a significant other today, dear Aries. You may be going back and forth about whether you want to be close to someone or enjoy some independence now. As the day advances, allow your intuition to flow naturally and spontaneously so that you can arrive at a greater understanding of people and money, not through analysis but your intuition! Finances may improve through unusual, hidden, or unexpected channels today and tomorrow. Honesty with yourself and about your feelings can take you to a place of forgiveness. A cycle beginning today brings increased energy, effort, and patience for focus, concentration, and research. This cycle that lasts until the middle of January is also excellent for self-renewal through channeling your energies into worthwhile personal causes or for getting rid of bad habits and making lifestyle changes.
You have a lot to do and much to draw your attention to work and duties now, Taurus, but you’re also in high need of a break! This can be a day of going back and forth between the two or finding a healthy compromise. The latter seems more satisfying. With Venus and Neptune on their way to a harmonious trine, you are very tuned in to your intuition. Your powers of attraction run high, as well. You are coming to a place of understanding about recent events, and especially surrounding your relationships. People tend to be on your side right now. You may not be wholly decided regarding your affections, but you’re getting there. A cycle that begins today and runs until the middle of January is excellent for developing partnerships or working relationships. Someone may be particularly helpful for getting things done or might motivate you to set important projects in motion. Alternatively, this is an excellent period for working very well in a partnership.
You may feel a sudden need to pull yourself away from a project, relationship, or situation today simply because you need some air or space to breathe, dear Gemini, as fun or exciting as it is. Keep in mind, however, that abrupt actions can lead to frustration or confusion, so aim to divide your time without too much fanfare. Venus and Neptune are heading towards a harmonious trine, and this can draw the artist out of you. It’s excellent as well for arriving at solutions or ideas instinctively and not necessarily in logical ways, as well as applying your creativity to practical matters. There could be unusual circumstances connecting you with the right people, projects, and information now, particularly when it comes to work and health issues. A cycle beginning today and lasting until mid-January, in fact, is excellent for bringing more value and efficiency to your daily routines, work, or pursuit of health and wellness. This can be a pleasantly busy, dedicated period of your life.
As much as you’re into your home life right now, you may need to pull back or take a break if you begin to feel a little smothered or out of the loop, dear Cancer. You shouldn’t have much of a problem finding outlets for expressing yourself today. Avoid abrupt actions for best results now. An inspiring influence helps soften the day’s energies, encouraging good feelings, forgiveness, and imagination. You are attracting who and what you want, although in many ways you’re doing so indirectly. Letting go of negative thoughts or expectations helps you enjoy and relax. Interestingly, you’re beginning a cycle, lasting until mid-January, in which you start taking your leisure time more seriously. From the outside looking in, entertainment and pleasures may resemble work! However, this is a period in which you enjoy applying yourself to projects and hobbies. A more dedicated, committed approach to creative projects, love relationships, children, and hobbies can benefit you greatly, and can even be healing now.
You’re inclined to enjoy your personal interests thoroughly and to take on many and varied activities today, Leo. Even so, you need a breather from this from time to time, if only to gain some perspective. Feeling confined can slow down production. It helps to shake up the routine a little so that you can refresh yourself mentally and emotionally. A Venus-Neptune aspect holding sway over the day easily pulls you into a compassionate, accepting frame of mind. This is a good time for strengthening relationships through appreciation of shared memories and familiarity. There can be more tenderness and gentleness in your interactions, and there may be a theme of service or support. Also today, you begin a cycle in which you pay particular attention to home and family matters until mid-January, and this can be quite satisfying and healing. Building your primary relationships and dedicating yourself to family or domestic concerns can help you feel more secure and confident.
You’re excited about your work, business, or personal accomplishments right now, dear Virgo, and rightfully so, but today, you may need to take some breaks from the routine just to refresh yourself. Try not to fight this need for inspiration. A Venus-Neptune aspect comes into influence today as well, and also supports healthy escapism! This aspect encourages you to let go of tension and enjoy life’s beautiful moments. There is good energy for getting a warm message across. A helpful conversation or understanding with someone can figure strongly now. Also today, you begin a cycle, lasting until mid-January, in which you can be very dedicated to your personal interests and projects, sharing ideas, and connecting with others. People are drawn to your intelligence or unique viewpoint as well as your commitment to whatever you’re doing.
You can be so intent on your personal plans and endeavors today that you find yourself resistant to changes introduced by others, dear Libra. With the Moon in your sign, this is a time for some healthy self-focus, but it may be a good idea to give a little if sticking to your plans winds up making you feel stuck and uncomfortable. Fortunately, a Venus-Neptune trine comes into influence now, and you can feel increasingly more confident in your intuition as the day advances. There can be a soul connection made or a feeling that things are magically falling into place. A psychic rapport experienced with people around you is possible now, particularly in your working relationships. An air of mystery around you can be beneficial. Also today, a cycle begins that lasts until mid-January in which security and business or practical matters are a focus. You’ll find it easy to pour your energies into earthy, comforting, and natural activities that help you heal and cleanse, as well as hone and develop talents and boost your income.
A strong urge to hide yourself away or take a bit of time away from demanding situations can overcome you today, dear Scorpio, and you need this. However, you may have to do battle with a few things you’ve left undone, and coming to a compromise makes the most sense. Dividing your attention may have to do, and doing so without too much fanfare makes the day run a little more smoothly. A Venus-Neptune aspect influences the day, fortunately, and supports your efforts to relax and decompress. It holds the added benefit of framing you beautifully. On both social and spiritual levels, the day can be quite magical. Happiness in the present but also hopefulness about the future combine to your satisfaction. With Vesta entering your sign today and staying in Scorpio until mid-January, having a personal project or mission becomes you. Independent work may be in focus now, and taking extra time to concentrate on your work or pursuits can be rewarding.
Commitments to a friend, network, or group are in focus today, dear Sagittarius, although they can clash just a little with more personal concerns. Giving a little by compromising may be your best bet. A Venus-Neptune trine influences the day (and tomorrow morning), and although relationships require some delicacy, they have a magical touch to them. This can be a good time for coming to a sense of peace about your private life or enjoying a revelation or secret. Supporting someone in your life can be very satisfying. You begin a cycle today, lasting until mid-January, in which you can get a whole lot done behind the scenes or doing background, unglamorous, or preparation work with Vesta in your privacy sector. Doing things on your own can be most effective, and you can be happily busy in the process. You also have a stronger need to regroup and recoup your energy, and perhaps more options to do so during this cycle.
You can find yourself quite engrossed in your work or responsibilities today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon, once again, spending the day at the top of your solar chart. However, distractions are likely, some of which have to do with your own inner unrest or restlessness, and you may need to divide your time. Helping you along is a Venus-Neptune aspect that comes into influence, promoting psychic rapport with others, expressions of compassion and forgiveness, and thoughtful gestures. Today and tomorrow are good for mending broken fences. In fact, you begin a cycle today, lasting until mid-January, in which working with others towards a common goal — or working towards a cherished dream independently — can be very beneficial, healing, and satisfying. You can find yourself pleasantly committed and dedicated to a friend or project now.
Again today, you have a particular interest in learning, sharing ideas, and personal interests, dear Aquarius, and these endeavors are in great shape, save for a few distractions! Differences in opinion may frustrate, but there are a couple of influences on you now that help you rise above it all. One especially supportive aspect is a Venus-Neptune trine that boosts your confidence in the idea of letting go and enjoying yourself leading to good things. It’s also good for business intuition and emotional intelligence. You’re notably winning and charming in a position of leadership or management right now, or simply getting a nice popularity boost. A cycle begins today that lasts until mid-January in which you feel pleasantly committed to your long-term goals, career, or reputation. Your increased patience for the effort involved in achieving your ambitions is notable now and leads to a more organized and fruitful approach.
When it comes to money and valuables or business today, dear Pisces, you may experience conflicting drives — on the one hand to push forward and be progressive, and on the other to stick with what has worked in the past. You may be best off arriving at a compromise. A Venus-Neptune aspect comes into influence today, upping your confidence in your hunches or intuition, and possibly leading to a pleasant revelation. It’s easier than usual to express acceptance, compassion, and understanding today, and this is right up your alley. Also today, you begin a cycle in which you feel particularly committed to your beliefs, projects, or learning endeavors. This period lasts until mid-January and is excellent for developing your skills and arriving at a better understanding of your goals and beliefs.

Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
BALANCE OF SIGNS
Even-handed, harmonious, artistic, diplomatic, balancing, strong sense of fairness. Can be over- compromising, appeasing, judgmental.
Intense, magnetic, penetrating perception, power to confront. Can be destructive, vengeful, jealous, overly dramatic.
Inspiring, broad vision, enthusiastic, goal seeking, truthful, adventurous. Can be reckless, unrestrained, tactless.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
There can be a lack of desire, interest, or skills regarding practical affairs. We may not be very much in touch with reality. Difficulties concentrating, grounding ourselves.
We are more compassionate, emotional, and intuitive than usual, and we may react emotionally to situations, possibly at the expense of logic or practicality.
BALANCE OF MODES
The modes are balanced.
LUNAR PHASE: BALSAMIC
Moon less than 45 degrees behind the Sun.
Time to tie up loose ends, review, reflect, let go, and edit.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on November 15th:
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 the Moon 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 involving inner planets 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 involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a lifetime).
