Today is strong for bonding with a partner and reaching a fair agreement or compromise, Aries. While you are a little more retiring than usual today, you can also feel pleasantly connected with someone or focused on a relationship, quite happily and comfortably so! The Moon spends another full day in your privacy sector. Very early tomorrow, your new lunar cycle begins, and today is good for tying up loose ends, reflecting, catching up on rest, and healing. The end of a cycle sometimes brings literal endings, although they are more often than not symbolic. Since the Sun and Jupiter’s alignment a few days ago, you’re ready to embrace a sense of renewal.
Today’s energies are strong for committing to a project or health endeavor and thoroughly enjoying it, dear Taurus. Your sense of responsibility or loyalty pleases you and makes you feel proud of yourself. Others may recognize your efforts, sacrifice, or commitment now. The Moon spends another day in your social sector, however, and you’ll also want to give a fair amount of attention to your friendships, dreams, and wishes. Friends and lovers may not mix well later today, however, or you may undergo an inner struggle about how close you want to be to someone.
The Moon spends another full day at the top of your solar chart, Gemini, reminding you that others are noticing what you do! Your awareness of your responsibilities and duties runs high again today. There is good energy with you for bonding in love relationships, with a child, or even to a creative project. There can be a sense of renewed commitment to a relationship, hobby, or pursuit. You might decide to throw yourself into an activity that engrosses you, as superficial interests don’t satisfy for the time being.
You might enjoy a pleasant commitment to family, home, or personal life today, dear Cancer. Energies are especially suitable for family affairs and emotional matters, and honesty and loyalty with those closest to you can help improve bonds. You’re willing to put in extra effort to make life easier or more comfortable. The Moon spends another day in your adventure and spirit sector, however, so you’ll do well for yourself to also pay attention to your needs for new experiences or horizons to explore on a mental level. Avoid sticking only with routine now for best results.
This is a good time for communications, dear Leo, particularly useful ones or communications that serve a distinct purpose. You could find yourself entirely absorbed in a pet project. Writing, teaching, and communicating your ideas could figure strongly in your business and may contribute more to your personal income than previously. This is a good time for organized learning, as you’re committed, as well as fine-tuning your communications skills. You want to be particularly thorough now, and, in fact, you enjoy putting in the extra effort.
The Moon spends another day in your partnership sector, dear Virgo, and your social instincts are strong. Even so, the practical side of life is a real draw for you as well. Today is good for intuitively recognizing the value of things, as well as for money matters. You might decide to shop for something useful or work on a business or practical pursuit now with excellent results and pleasant commitment. In fact, you’re ready to embrace activities that are absorbing or demanding now. You can make remarkable progress with a career or money-making idea now.
The Moon spends another day in your sector of work, habits, routines, and health, dear Libra, and you’re mainly focused on taking care of details and organizing some area of your life. Today, you may be recognized for your responsibility, dedication, or willingness to make some personal sacrifices in order to accommodate others as your ruler, Venus, moves into an alignment with Vesta in your own sign. Even so, you have an innate desire to build something substantial for yourself, and you should go with this constructive feeling. Being useful and productive satisfies a deep need today.
Again today, the Moon in your romance and entertainment sector inclines you to seek out fun and unique ways to express yourself, dear Scorpio. Even so, there is a nice flow of energy with you today for accomplishing your work and filling responsibilities quite happily and willingly, which helps speed things along, so you may want to take advantage! You’re also in a good position for activities for healing, recovering, and releasing negativity, as well as work behind the scenes and helping/advising others. What at first appears to be a complication can turn around and work in your favor today.
Friendship is taken more seriously or assumes more importance in your life than usual today, dear Sagittarius. You’re willing to get serious, and you’re ready to help or commit yourself to a project, cause, or pursuit. Activities or ideas shared with friends or in group settings can be uniquely healing and helpful right now. Even so, there remains a stronger than usual need for familiar situations and environments today as the Moon spends another full day in your home and family sector. You’ll be happiest if you divide your time accordingly. It’s not exceptionally easy to relax later today, but it’s worth it to try.
Today is strong for improving your reputation as well as bonding with others who share similar goals and visions, dear Capricorn. You can find yourself pleasantly committed to your work or a particular purpose. While personal affairs are emphasized today with the Moon in your solar third house all day, you can be quite focused when it comes to long-term goals, career matters, and responsibilities as well. There is positive energy with you for getting a sense of what you want to achieve in the larger scheme of things. There can be some critical conclusions drawn now, and excellent feedback as well, as others look to you for guidance. Watch for a tendency to back away from an endeavor later today due to insecurities. Don’t sell yourself short now.
Today and early tomorrow are perfect for committing to activities that help you take good care of your mind, body, and spirit, dear Aquarius. This is also a strong time for working on a project that’s close to your heart and for sharing ideas with people you love. You can do well for yourself by making connections today as you are in an excellent position to attract helpful people and even information into your life. Since the Moon spends another day in your resources sector, you’re also interested in getting comfortable or building upon already in-progress ideas and projects.
Today’s energies are suitable for research, observation, and new insight into your relationships, dear Pisces. You might find yourself pleasantly committed to a person or project now. You’re likely to find throwing yourself into a project or mystery to solve especially appealing. Nothing halfway right now! In fact, it’s very easy to become lost in a quest for more information today, and while it can eat up time, you’re enjoying yourself! The Moon continues to transit your sign all day, ensuring you’ll come up for air often enough to enjoy good company. Responsibilities to work or duty can feel unusually heavy today, however.

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.
Compassionate, sensitive, self-sacrificing, gentle, intuitive. Can be escapist, impractical, hyper- sensitive, gullible.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
We are not very goal-oriented right now, or motivation to pursue our goals may be waning/lacking. Changes feel overwhelming. Enthusiasm may be low, we argue less, and we think more than we take action.
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: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
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 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).
THE MOON IN PISCES
A time to observe, feel, and process. We may pay special attention to our dreams, both of the night and day variety, and the subtle areas of our lives. We may have difficulties defining emotional boundaries. We might deal with stress through avoidant or escapist behavior. Focusing on creativity, philanthropy, spirituality, and artistry can be beneficial. Build your intuition, slow down and rest.
