- The Moon is in Libra all day (until Thursday, November 20th, at 12:30 AM EST).
- The Moon is waning and in its Last Quarter/Waning Crescent phase.
- Neptune has turned direct.
Creative projects can get a boost right now, and can be what gets you out of bed in the morning these days, dear Aries. Today, personal interactions can be on the tense/intense side. Watch a tendency to want to score intellectual points when a sensitive, intelligent approach is best. Work and responsibility matters can be tricky if power games are involved. There could be the need to let go of a method that has served you in the past but that now is outdated.
Disagreements on basic philosophies generally don’t bother you too much, but today you could easily get worked up over something that goes against your basic belief system. This can certainly stimulate you to expand your knowledge and even tolerance, but if you find yourself getting angry, consider what buried resentment it’s triggering and how you can rid yourself of it. Resentments have a way of eating at you, so facing them and dealing with them can be especially helpful. Some of you could find working on home improvement projects or research can be absorbing and motivating.
Your desire to investigate, uncover, and detect anything that is hidden is very strong today, dear Gemini. Use it for good, such as for research and analysis, rather than for stirring up problems. Keep yourself busy with problem solving instead of problem creating! Your energy and motivation levels for personal interests and projects is on the increase. You can do pretty much whatever you set out to do, and have energy to spare with the right project.
It’s a strong day for getting a whole lot of small tasks done at alarming speed, as you are more able to multi-task than usual now. You can also take advantage of a shot of enthusiastic energy the universe is providing you today by pouring it into productive and constructive tasks. If you let your mind run idle, you might find yourself worrying needlessly over the tiniest of things, making you feel very irritable and restless. Minor health complaints may crop up if you don’t keep busy and active.
There can be some annoyances on the homefront today, possibly to do with cranky moods and trying to get the upper hand. An event may force you to pay attention to something you typically would avoid, and you may have unusually strong feelings about it. There can be a triggering of buried feelings today. Treat it as a chance to rid yourself of old resentments. Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in suspicions or resentful feelings, unless, of course, your goal is to find ways to get over them.
There can be some edginess and some tendency for sharp words to be exchanged. The extra energy you’re experiencing today can feel excessive if you’re not channeling it into something productive. Home improvements can fare well today, although trying to rush through things will not help. Focus on things that can be done that don’t require multiple rules to follow or patient hands. Find ways to express your more unique qualities so that you can get the warm feedback you deserve!
A disagreement with a friend or acquaintance may serve to irritate today, but it’s minor and likely has its roots in feeling neglected or ego-drained. Try to dismiss it, but don’t allow yourself to get into power plays. It’s not worth it! Your mind is working full speed ahead, and it might be a good idea to jot some ideas down so that you don’t forget them later. It’s a day of relative haste, so do take extra care. You don’t want to trip over yourself in your desire to do as many things as you can.
Disagreeing on basic issues can prompt a heated discussion today, and so can anything that seems to attack your ego and your pride, as you may be feeling on the defensive. It’s all too easy to feel slighted now. Take a deep breath and ask yourself whether or not it’s worth the stress. Professional matters can be tricky today, and your best bet is to avoid letting your mind wander, and instead focus on just getting the job done.
You are raring to go, all fired up and ready to take action on an idea. If desire turns into reality, use this time wisely. You might enjoy a good debate with others now, but do be careful that your sparring partner thinks it’s just as fun. Try not to take yourself too seriously, or to become so attached to your ideas that a simple difference of opinion is taken personally. You don’t want to trigger resistance in others.
Your imagination is running wild today, and this can be a good thing if you steer it towards creative visioning. It can be challenging if you speak before you get all the facts, however, especially if what you are talking about was meant to be private. Emotionally, however, you are feeling fresh and energetic. A sense that you’re working toward important goals gives you a feeling of purposefulness, and there are few better feelings for you than this one.
Self-improvement programs work well today, as well as activities that involve physical exertion. You can easily take the lead now, if you want to, as others tend to follow. You have strong energy at your disposal for asserting yourself without stepping on other’s toes. However, negotiations of any sort can be tough today, as there are likely to be hidden agendas at play, or information that is not yet known.
You can easily get all fired up about work or your reputation today and tomorrow. Use this energy wisely. You might assert yourself in order to advance, but make sure some humility shines through. Others are listening, so make it a good one! You are learning how to use challenges and obstacles to your advantage. Avoid tense power plays at all costs – they have a way of showing up today.

LUNAR PHASE: THIRD QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 45 degrees behind the Sun.
We have strong beliefs and are likely to put them into action. We have the wisdom to know when to act, but sometimes can be inflexible.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on November 18th:
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.
