This can be a good day for feeling impassioned, motivated, and positive, dear Aries. For some, there can be extra sizzle in a love relationship today, and for others, your charm is your passionate attitude right now. Help others out by making sure your emotional doors are open, although you may want to take the lead today. Warm energy is with you for leisurely activities, artistic expression, hobbies, time spent with children, and romance. With your emotions and desire nature cooperating beautifully today, you are at once appealing to others and especially resourceful. Instincts tend to be good. Even though there is easy energy for fun and creative efforts, you’re also in a good position to advance work projects and solve practical problems.
You could get a kick in the pants or become suddenly motivated to take care of family and home matters today, dear Taurus. This can be a good time for tapping into some of your deeper needs and desires. Your senses are powerful today and could be working overtime. Your feelings are all fired up and your need for action is stirred, although you may not know exactly where to direct excess energy. Once you do, however, you can move mountains. You also have extra practical intelligence at your disposal today to do with as you please.
With Mars moving through your communications sector these days, dear Gemini, you can sometimes become frustrated with people who are beating around the bush or slow to get to their point. Today, with the Moon here as well and in alignment with Mars, something that’s said could really get to you. The other side of this is enthusiasm, and something you learn or come across can excite your curiosity now. There can be friendly competition stimulated now, or a strong desire to put an idea into action. If you can set your own pace, all the better today, simply because you can be a few paces ahead of the people around you at the moment.
While the Moon in your solar second house today can bring out your needs for steadiness and comfort, dear Cancer, its alignment with Mars could stimulate or prompt an unusual desire, whim, or attraction. Alternatively, you could feel in the position to defend yourself or prove your value today. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You might feel especially motivated to work, make money, or make your life more comfortable and secure.
This is a good time for feeling on track, dear Leo. There is industriousness now, and you can very effectively add more creativity to your work or structure to your creative projects. You are quick to pick up on what is expected of you, and yet you are marching to your own inner drummer, somehow managing to take the lead and owning it, too. The Moon is in your sign and aligning with Mars as well, boosting vitality. If you don’t challenge yourself, you may feel irritable. Self-directed activities are best now – you’re more independent and competitive now than on most days.
With the Moon and Mars coming together in your privacy sector, dear Virgo, desires can be sudden or unusual, bubbling up from deep within. You could be experiencing a strong urge to either break with the past or reconnect with it. Mars in your privacy sector has been stirring up a slew of issues – previously buried anger, desire, and passion – and often works under the radar if you are not in touch with its energies. This is why you might often feel very sudden impulses and unusual desires these days. Today, your emotions are engaged as well. Avoid working against yourself, and instead focus on making an improvement to your life. This is a time when a lot is going on under the hood, but it’s not necessarily an overtly active period.
You or others may be holding on especially tightly to their independence today, dear Libra, and this can be a good thing or it can lead to some mild conflicts. Keep a sense of humor and seek to discover your own happiness, and it can be a fun and spirited day. This can in fact be a good day for practical affairs, even if your heart is with your social life. You may have more energy and motivation than usual to dream up new long-term plans, and with Saturn in your communications sector receiving a creative aspect from the Sun in your imaginative solar twelfth house, you’re in good shape for giving form to your more creative ideas.
This can be a time of some impatience, dear Scorpio, as you can be anxious to push plans forward. However, you’ll be at your best if you can pace yourself a little, even as you draw upon the strength of your feelings today in order to be productive and take the initiative. You tend to need to lead or act independently, and fortunately, others for the most part allow you to do your own thing or follow your lead. If you feel things heating up in your career, you’re very much in tune. Do whatever you can to present yourself in the most professional and competent of manners now. If you’re feeling defensive, try to tone things down a little.
With the Moon and Mars coming to alignment in a sector of your chart that rules opinions and beliefs, dear Sagittarius, you may need to remind yourself to be tactful while you are being forthright. You can get quite quickly fired up about a particular topic or idea today. Another side of this energy is enthusiasm for your personal plans or a new topic of interest, as well as increased motivation or courage to do something you’ve always wanted to do but have put off or shied away from. Watch for impatience, but do gently push your usual boundaries now.
There is a lot coming in and not so much coming out today on an emotional level, dear Capricorn, with the Moon in your solar eighth house. You tend to absorb and analyze things going on around you, particularly those taking places on more subtle planes, and keep to yourself. Emotions are internalized and may even be inflamed with the Moon’s meeting with fiery Mars today. While this might stimulate frustrations over inequalities you’ve experienced, it’s also a good time for taking action on an issue that has been a long time coming, particularly related to finances or intimacy. Your willingness to plumb the depths of a situation can also translate into passion. Another positive channel for this extra energy is for pouring yourself into a pet project, interest, or research.
There can be much passion in a partnership today, dear Aquarius, although if excess energy is channeled poorly, there could be a conflict brewing or a big reveal. You might resent it if you feel someone else is being a backseat driver in your life. Or, the issue at hand may be more about what you’re not accepting in yourself than simply coming from the outside. Otherwise, others may have a positive influence on you, encouraging you to take action or do something fun and interesting that you may not have felt motivated to do otherwise. This can pull you out of a rut. The key now is to enjoy the boost others give you without feeling that you’re giving your personal power away.
With the Moon in your solar sixth house all day and aligning with Mars, dear Pisces, you might use this energy to fix those “little things” in your life that have fallen out of whack, although patience may not be your strong suit just now. It could also be a good time for getting going on a health or fitness program, although with this as well, you should avoid pushing things, or your body, too far. The key now is to feel in control of your routines and in charge of self-care. You may have more on your plate today than usual, but you also have the energy and confidence to tackle whatever you need to do.

Meticulous, discriminating, pure, practical, health conscious, hard working. Can be hyper-critical, petty and perfectionistic.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS

We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
There may be some insensitivity or lack of empathy now. We may be out of touch with what we’re feeling or with our emotional needs. We may be tougher than usual now, and more inclined to follow mental or practical considerations than we are to listen to our intuition.
BALANCE OF MODES
The modes are balanced.
LUNAR PHASE: BALSAMIC
Moon less than 45 degrees behind the Sun.
Time to tie up loose ends, review, reflect, let go, and edit.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on September 10th:
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).
