This is a good day for breaking new ground, trying new things, and keeping our options open. However, we can be fiercely protective of our ways and stubbornly clinging to familiar behavior patterns. We should be giving one another space.
- The Moon is in Aries all day (until Wednesday, November 5th, at 4:34 PM EST).
- The Moon is waxing, and is in its First Quarter/Gibbous phase.
- Mercury has ended its retrograde (on October 25th) and is currently in its shadow, until November 10th.
You can be spirited today with the Moon in your sign all day. Ideally, you are able to set the pace, because you’re not in the mood for submitting to others’ rules and direction right now. Putting effort into personal plans or projects that require strong but not necessarily long-term effort makes sense today. Be sure not to alienate people who can help you when you need it with shows of independence. If allowed some personal space, aside from minor challenges, the day can play very much in your favor.
This is a good time for activities that serve to renew or refresh yourself. There could be a surprise from the past or a past error emerging, and your instincts about dealing with problems may be on the radical side. Don’t spend time proving that you’re over something – this is a time for working on letting go of the things you no longer need. If you feel the need for extra rest today, take it. The Moon will enter your sign, and you will enter a fresh new cycle, late afternoon tomorrow. Until then, take time making decisions and time out for emotional recharging.
Your inventive and rebellious side may be interesting for you to explore today and can even provide some pleasant returns. However, watch for impulsiveness today. As well, you may be tempted to prove your independence, particularly with friends who don’t seem to be accepting the changes you are making. You can put your point across more delicately, which you certainly know, but the temptation now may be to shock. You are likely to take things a lot less seriously later today and tomorrow, so keep that in mind. Keeping an open mind and your options open can invite positive, interesting experiences.
You might feel uber-motivated to go forward on a professional or lofty project/goal today. Enjoy the feelings of inspiration, but don’t let impatience spoil a good thing. Changing attitudes towards others’ opinions of you these days can lead you to want to do something out of the ordinary, simply to drive home the point that you don’t care. But the truth may be that you do care, for now, and you have more “work” to do before arriving at a point where you are as free-spirited as you’d like to be. Avoid getting yourself embroiled in power games that go nowhere today. Think about ways to start fresh. People you meet while pursuing your goals can be inspiring and original.
This can be quite an outgoing, adventurous day. You can be feeling impulsive, and while you should definitely enjoy this energy boost, avoid overshooting or adding more to your plate simply because you feel you can handle it now (you may not feel the same way on a less inspired day). You can be quite bored with traditional or intolerant thinking and stances, and you may want to argue a point in an attempt to open others’ minds. Remember that you’ll be the most successful if you are subtle. While arguing may loop in frustrating ways, the day is strong for feeling adventurous, connected, and optimistic.
You are naturally a brave person when it comes to facing inner demons, but you may not always spend enough time feeling your deepest emotions as you do reacting to them. This is something you can work on, as anger is usually a defense mechanism to shield ourselves from feeling pain and hurt. Anger tends to dissipate when you allow yourself the time to feel the emotions of hurt. When the Moon transits Aries each month especially, as it does today, you have the desire to get to the root of problems, and you have much to discover. However, it’s important not to rush a financial or intimate matter, as you’re inclined to do right now.
Even though you may not be at your peak energetically speaking, this can be a fine time for relating, enjoying others’ company, and connecting, as long as you aim to live in the moment without rigid expectations. You tend to be more emotionally invested in your relationships today with the Moon in your partnership zone, which tends to amp up moodiness (your own, or that of a partner). If an important player in your life seems to be unpredictable or acting out of sorts, giving them space may be necessary, but in the process, don’t lose sight of your own needs.
This can be a winning time, in a quiet way, as you can tackle pretty much anything that comes your way. You’re emotionally geared towards the smaller details of your life today, rather than the bigger picture. Take advantage of the added energy you have for solving problems and organizing your environment, as this energy has not been especially available to you in recent times. You are able to prove your worth through the practical things you do and the services you render for others. Avoid pushing yourself too hard, but do enjoy the extra boost of motivation to get your life organized.
You’re feeling more alive, confident, and ready to share yourself today. You have more impact than usual. People notice your joie de vivre. Your creativity knows few bounds today, although your attention span may be a little lacking. Even though people are seeing you in a positive light, don’t push too hard, as there is yet quite a bit of inner work you need to do with planets emphasizing your privacy and soul sector. If others are bothering you with being unreliable or inconsistent, be sure to write your own terms, even while giving them some space.
There can be a stronger need for, or attachment to, close loved ones and family today, as well as familiar situations. This is a time when sticking to what you know, the familiar, and the tried and true actually benefits you. More adventurous days do await, but for now, some self-pampering and nest building can do you well. As much as possible, avoid demanding or challenging situations, and aim to reconnect with your roots. Of course, you can’t and shouldn’t control everything, and there can be some unreliable energy with you today, but if you can resign yourself to allowing life to play out on its own, you can catch a few breathers now.
You often enjoy shocking people out of complacency, and this trait is emphasized today. You can be feeling a little stubborn about an idea or learning project right now, and there can be some frustration today if you feel restricted or forced into working within rigid rules. Avoid entering or furthering power games. Remember that guarding your privacy too tightly, or stubborn unwillingness to explore deeper issues, can add to any communication problems you may be having now. This is a day for honoring your need for more variety and stimulation. If you have the chance to color outside of the lines or to set your own pace, then take it.
You may be craving a more predictable, steadier pace, but it might not be easy to come by these days. If you have trouble relaxing, you might consider adding very simple, grounding, and earthy activities to your day – those things that remind you of the comforting world of the five senses. Social affairs can be distracting rather than supportive right now. It’s important to give others space and freedom today, as counting too much on people could be a frustrating thing at the moment. Offer freedom but also take time for yourself as well.

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.
