Things seem to come together almost magically today, dear Aries, particularly when it comes to insight into your inner workings, as well as creative or romantic matters. You can get your message across rather subtly now, conveying your inner message naturally. Words may not be quite as effective as body language and actions today, and while the pace of the day may be slower than you typically enjoy, this does suit you well. Activities that feed your imagination and sense of mystery or magic can thrive now. Inspiration may come from a private moment with someone, or from within. Look for situations that feed your faith, as this is particularly important to your well-being now. You might also connect with people and information that further your work or health goals now.
There can be a sweet spirit of acceptance in your relationships today, dear Taurus, and while you may not be getting a whole lot done in an explicit way, you can nevertheless bond well with people you care about. There can be a theme of support and help. Your best bet is not to seek out solid answers, but rather listen, share, and heal simply by being there. Conversations about dreams and spiritual or philosophical subjects can be in focus, as well as some rich fantasies. Intuition runs high, so don’t discount your feelings and hunches, particularly about people. For some of you, a partner and friend mix well now, or you are bringing a friendship spirit to a relationship. Significant love and friendship connections may be made now. Even so, the day is more about accepting and enjoying people than making big moves.
The spiritual, artistic, and emotional side of our lives takes on more importance today, dear Gemini, as the Sun in profound Scorpio connects harmoniously with mystical Neptune. This aspect occurs in your sectors of work and career, boosting your intuition and imagination regarding all things practical and work-related. It’s a good time to back away from a problem to get perspective, as overthinking will do you absolutely no good today. You might have the opportunity to add some creative flair to your work, and ideas for marketing or promotion can be especially inspired now. This is a time for considering your non-material needs in any endeavor. If you’re looking for more from your routine, envision ways to make life a little more exciting – they’re likely to come to you today!
There are several reasons for thoroughly enjoying the day, dear Cancer. For one, the Sun, Moon, and Mercury are in your sector of romance and creativity, encouraging a more playful and engaged approach to your life. This is a time for exploring your creative side. For another, the Sun and Neptune form a lovely aspect today that helps boost your imagination and lift your spirits. Good energy is with you for acceptance, hope, tolerance, and affection. Sharing a dream, ideal, or belief with someone can enhance your bond. A busy life can sometimes separate us from soul-nourishing needs, and today’s energies help you to reconnect with those activities that feed your spirit and encourage expressing yourself without fear. This can also be a good time for making a friend and for connecting with resources that help further educational or travel goals.
The day’s energies favor a spiritual over an entirely practical approach, dear Leo, and you’re able to get into this frame of mind more easily than usual today. Problems with living arrangements or conditions may come to a favorable resolution now. Matters related to real estate, family, and the home tend to work out in your favor, and relationships with family or an intimate partner can be inspiring or subtly enhanced today. While you’re not in an ideal place for making a substantial commitment, you are putting more faith in others, yourself, and the world now, and this aids decision making, nudging you towards the right choices. If you have been nursing a resentment or old hurt, this is a good time to see a good reason for letting it go. You don’t always need to understand a situation fully in order to put it behind you. While the non-material world is in strong focus today, you may nevertheless stumble upon a valuable resource for boosting your income.
Today’s energies favor faith, imagination, and spirit, dear Virgo, and are not as strong for the practical approach that comes most naturally to you. Even so, you can be very quick to pick up on this, as adaptable and intelligent as you are. Partnerships and communications are especially favored, particularly if you let go of expectations and commit to enjoying the moment and the natural rhythm of things. There can be the chance to show your support for someone who needs mental or spiritual help. This can also be a day in which you find yourself attracted to someone new or when you entertain a different perspective about a person you already know. Your own charm expands, particularly if you are writing or expressing your ideas. This is not a time for forcing an idea or conversation. Letting things flow and unfold naturally is useful now. If you need to repair a relationship, a gentle touch has the biggest impact today.
Helpful connections may be made to resources that boost your financial position or help you attract good things into your life today, dear Libra. It’s important that you pay special attention to your needs for more imagination, gentleness, romance, or nuance in your life. In fact, circumstances may be such that you gravitate towards activities that help you do just that. You may be following a hunch when it comes to a money, work, or health matter. The desire to help out someone can be strong now, and it can be rewarding if you follow through. Instincts for money and methods are good, although it’s not a time for strict focus on details and facts. Doing things for the inner rewards should be in focus to best use the energies of the day.
While the day’s energies are subtle in some ways, dear Scorpio, they certainly frame your personality well. The Moon is in your sign, and you are in strong touch (perhaps a little too loud in spots) with your emotions. Your appeal receives a boost as you express traits that others seem to be striving for or aspiring towards. It’s an excellent day for promoting your ideas or for capturing people’s attention. With Neptune involved with the Sun in Scorpio today, there is an added dose of mystery and eloquence to your manner. Creativity runs high, so if you write, paint, or do something artistic, you might make time for these activities now. Some of you may even experience some flashes of deja vu or other psychic phenomena now. Gravitate towards activities that promote spiritual wellness and growth. Like-minded people will make their way to you.
You’re particularly fascinated with the past, the mysterious, and the hidden these days, dear Sagittarius, and this tendency is pronounced today. You’ll be doing quite a bit of daydreaming and imagining now. It’s a good day for quiet time alone to relax and rejuvenate, but you are likely to find warmth and appreciation forthcoming regardless. Family and domestic matters can thrive, or they quite incidentally support your needs for privacy and emotional renewal. You are exploring your inner world and enjoying the process. The rewards for activities that help you rejuvenate and refresh your spirit are great. While you are a little retiring now, don’t close all doors. In fact, there can be valuable connections made for business, social standing, and health care or counseling.
This is one of the better days for you to communicate and connect with special ease and grace, dear Capricorn. Communications with friends can set things right now in your world today. This may have to do with your perspective – you are choosing to see differences as intriguing rather than annoying, for example. Teamwork is bound to go exceptionally smoothly today. It’s rather easy to get others to go along with your plans. You’ll reap the most rewards today if you set aside personal agendas and reach out to others simply for the sake of getting in touch. It’s easier than usual to access your imagination and apply it to your work, projects, and communications. Beneficial connections may be made to teachers, friends, or associates now.
This is a better time of the year for career efforts, reputation, gaining respect, and coming across with more authority, dear Aquarius. Today, you might feel that you are naturally drawn to the right resources for getting ahead or working towards your goals. Increased faith in your talents and your value leads to positive developments. Your imagination is working to your advantage, and if you allow your intuition to engage, you’re in a particularly good position to make business and money decisions. Your natural-born talents may be put to good use today. You can be an inspired and inspiring manager, teacher, or leader now. This can also be a good time for connecting with people and information for financial prosperity or that help to further your professional goals.
You have personal appeal to spare today, dear Pisces. You are high-spirited, quickly bouncing back from changes of plans, yet entirely graceful. While you’re not necessarily “in the know”, you don’t feel you need to be, fully embracing the moment rather than making solid commitments or killing yourself to find answers. There’s an easy flow of communication now. You are attracted to activities that take you outside of your usual routine. The desire to learn more about the world around you and other people is strong, and you magnetize experiences that broaden your thinking, experience, and expertise. Today’s Sun-Neptune influence can help you to feel especially inspired by a new interest, topic, or idea.

Current Lunar Phase
LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
This is an energetic, impulsive, and subjective period of time. We are looking for new projects and opportunities.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on October 31st:
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 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).
