Times are EST
You can be feeling more free to be yourself today, dear Aries, and this can be because others are not putting as much pressure on you or you are detaching yourself from it! You are projecting friendly qualities now, and you can quite naturally guide others towards healing through your own actions and ideas. You may be looking to a team or cooperative unions to accomplish a job. You could also be exploring ways to update technology in some way now, as you’re interested in making progress and perhaps feeling gently competitive. You might also simply feel the need to challenge yourself to move into unexplored territory.
People are noticing your performance and actions more than usual today, dear Taurus, with the Moon at the top of your chart, but this can be felt as gently stimulating. Sometimes you need a little boost that reminds you to take better care of your life, and being slightly more accountable gives you that nudge. You can be feeling confident that others are seeing your worth and value, and if you aren’t feeling this, you can do things that make yourself proud, and this will, by extension, boost that confidence. This is a good day for gaining a little more clarity, which has been rather lacking in recent days, and for figuring out where you stand. It’s also strong for drawing up plans on a professional level.
Good energy is with you for sharing your thoughts and knowledge with others, dear Gemini. While ego issues may have interfered in your relationships yesterday, today your natural approach to others is endearing and attracts positive feedback. Put progress and self-improvement at the top of your list now for best results. It’s also important to feed your need for movement, growth, and variety. Even if you are in the position to handle routine matters, your craving for more interesting experiences can be satisfied in small ways if you mix up your routine or take some pleasant detours from it, even if it means taking a walk or a drive in order to freshen up emotionally. You can better manage your feelings about recent pressures in your social life now.
This is a good day for focusing on your inner world, dear Cancer, and for getting in touch with deeper feelings. If there’s something you need to change within that will improve your life, this can be a day when you’re especially open to facing fears and attacking problems from their root. Emotional satisfaction comes through applying yourself to something, digging deep under the surface of things, research, and depth experiences. You are more able to see what parts of your life or attitude are dysfunctional, and those that truly work for you. Intimate relationships can be in focus and can help take the pressure off from recent tension in home and career life.
There is good energy for your social life today, dear Leo, and for any situation that requires one-on-one relating, including counseling, meetings, and pairing up. A partner might demand some attention today, but not in an unpleasant manner. In fact, you’re inclined to enjoy showing your appreciation for the people in your life, who tend to help relieve some of the recent mental tension and pressures you’ve been experiencing. Roll with changes today. The key to success right now is to adapt to the needs of others, giving less attention to your own needs without ignoring them entirely. You might be able to solve a problem, particularly of the interpersonal variety, lay a debate to rest, or simply get a little closer to someone special.
This is a good day for meeting your goals, dear Virgo, that involve daily life and routines. The inner workhorse emerges now, and can distract you from recent pressures and tensions. There can be a pleasant sense that the work you are doing at the moment is something that truly contributes to your future, in little ways. The important thing is that you’re seeing just how important the “little things” are. Focus might be on improving efficiency in your life or solving a problem that you’ve shelved. Take care of small issues that assume bigger proportions in your mind simply because they have been put off for too long. This will take the weight off.
The enthusiasm you express today, dear Libra, tends to inspire others to follow suit. The affection you’re putting out there is infectious, and others appreciate your unique vision and perspective. It’s a good time for following a passion or a new interest. Drawing upon your natural talents and creative bent comes naturally today, and is likely to be rewarding. Use them to grow your own confidence and well as others’ confidence in you. Some recent pressures, particularly in partnerships, can be managed today with some humor and a willingness to let go and move on. The ability to find something to learn in almost anything you experience now is the key to happiness and emotional satisfaction.
You could be feeling especially good about connecting with family or spending quiet time with familiar people today, dear Scorpio. This can lift your spirits and help you deal with any pressures that work or health have placed on you recently. You are in a frame of mind that is intimate and warm. This is a good day for looking within instead of worrying unduly about what others are doing. Keep things simple, familiar, secure, and comfortable, as you’re in need of some stability and a break from “hectic”. There are times for moving out of your comfort zone, and other times for gathering your strength, and today is more likely to be the latter.
Confidence in your ideas, which can be quite brilliant right now, is building, dear Sagittarius, and you’re more willing to share them with others. A friend or lover might provide you with feedback or may be a sounding board for you now, and this can have good results, leading you to important conclusions. Interpersonal conflicts tend to be superficial and temporary today, and restlessness is easily managed by mixing around your routine in order to help things hum along more smoothly. The Moon’s presence in Aquarius today complements you well, and can pull out your idealism or motivate you to reach out and make a connection.
You can feel quite productive today, dear Capricorn, putting worries aside in order to focus on your priorities. Consciously work on your patience and ability to concentrate on what matters in the present, as this will help iron out difficulties that come from pressure to perform or to meet responsibilities related to career or home life. This is a day for taking stock of your situation and your resources, and reconnecting with the things that matter the most to you. Look more closely at your current projects, talents, and resources, and aim to nurture and develop these things.
Your emotions are running very close to the surface with the Moon in your sign all day, dear Aquarius. You express yourself with natural ease. All eyes are on you, and you are more than willing to give them a show. It’s important to listen to your feelings, but not to be so overruled by them that you unwittingly create crises or emergencies. Recent mental tension and pressure can be eased today with a little humor or possibly even a soothing distraction. Your ability to let go and move on is vital to emotional satisfaction now, as it’s a wonderful way to take a load off your mind. Aim to wipe the slate clean and start fresh attitude wise with a new lunar month ahead.
A certain level of anonymity becomes you today, dear Pisces, as working below the radar can help you to focus on your inner world, healing, and resting. It’s a time for laying low, connecting with those closest to you, and enjoying familiar surroundings and people. You seem to be more productive in privacy or when you remove yourself from the hub of activity. Even if you’re idle,, you’re doing something for yourself. Do what you can to take some time out to reflect or to simply recharge emotionally. While helping out others can feed a need and make you feel proud of yourself, too much can wear you down, so aim to find a balance.

LUNAR PHASE: CRESCENT
Moon 45 to 90 degrees ahead of the Sun.
This is an eager, impulsive, and progressive time. We are motivated and ready to take on challenges.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on December 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 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 life time).
