- The Moon is in Aries all day (until Wednesday, December 3rd, at 12:14 AM EST).
- The Moon is in its First Quarter phase.
It’s easier than usual for you to apply yourself to work or to a project and put forth solid effort today, dear Aries. You may be feeling a little alone or isolated, particularly when it comes to work and financial concerns, but you enjoy a sense of purpose now. The Moon is in your sign, boosting your personal magnetism, and your ruler, Mars, is forming an easy aspect with Saturn, boosting your credibility. You have the stamina and even the patience to see something through, or to work on something that doesn’t have immediate rewards and results. It’s a good time to quit a bad habit, or to take steps towards that end. Some of you could get some positive recognition for what you do.
You are better able to concentrate today, dear Taurus, as well as to listen to others in such a way that they really feel supported and “heard”. This is not a day for much frivolity, and it’s strong for taking on work or obligations that you normally prefer to avoid. You are more interested in getting these kinds of things behind you. You have a chance to show self-control and can earn some respect as you demonstrate restraint. Steady energy is working for you, on personal and professional levels. Even so, you tend to withdraw a little today, and this is natural with the Moon now in your privacy sector demanding some level of renewal on an emotional level.
Research and analysis are favored today, as you have both the determination and patience to really sink your teeth into things and to dig deep, dear Gemini. Both business and personal matters can thrive now with added thoroughness and attention to detail, although there is some reserve today. Look to actions rather than words today for signs that others care. There can be a desire to work independently and at your own pace right now. You could be focusing on overcoming obstacles. It’s best to focus on one thing at a time right now – not your favorite thing, but you’ll take better advantage of the day’s benefits if you do.
Listen to what “higher ups” have to say now – advice tends to be wise now, dear Cancer. Also, if you are aiming to get closer to someone, the day favors showing you care through actions and practical support. If you’ve been thinking a lot about a relationship matter recently, you might decide to make a statement or commitment, or otherwise seal the deal. Deliberate moves and strategy are favored on almost all levels right now. Almost any kind of partnering matter, personal or business, can benefit today, even if it’s not a showy, fanciful time. You are valuing real effort. There could be a strengthening event or conversation with a lover or child now, and many of you could be seeing someone in a more favorable light.
You’re full of energy, but you tend to prefer to work or act in privacy today, dear Leo. It might please you to do something charitable or to take action on an important matter anonymously now. The day is likely to be busy and productive, and while you can be a little reserved right now, you tend to be in high demand. Work on the home, or at home, can be very productive, and you are likely focusing on real improvement and long-term value and growth. Projects that require precision and attention to detail fare best right now. Personally, there may be some responsibilities to tend to, but you are inclined to feel stronger for meeting them.
A protective influence occurs today revolving around practical matters including money, work, and friendships/love, dear Virgo. This is not a day for impulsive moves. In fact, success today depends on how patient and deliberate you can be. Thinking in terms of security and practicality will bring rewards. You have a stronger sense than usual about which of your ideas have true potential. You can be very absorbed in a project now, and the focus is on the details. There can also be very productive conversations occurring today with children, a lover, or a creative partner. You are a little more deliberate in your communications, taking more time than usual to craft your words.
You might receive a positive communication that boosts your confidence about your resources, dear Libra. The day has just the right feel of intensity that you feel comfortably challenged. Steady energy is with us right now. Practical matters fare well for you, as you are looking for truly workable solutions and quite determined to find answers. This is a good time for budgeting, considering important purchases, particularly for family or the home, and for tending to details. Someone, especially a partner, may give you good reason to feel supported and cared for, not necessarily through words, but more likely through actions. A partner may be leaned upon today, or can offer some helpful advice or assistance.
You can communicate today with more authority and power, dear Scorpio. With Mars transiting your communications sector, you have been coming across strongly in general, but sometimes impatiently. Today, you are able to combine strength with patience, and others take you more seriously as a result. There is strong energy today for work of almost any kind. You are determined, thinking in the long term, and more tuned in to important, practical details right now. Some of you could get news of a job or opportunity in the communications field. This is a good time to seal a deal or to tighten up your work, idea, or presentation. The unglamorous details can be tackled, and you may very well enjoy the work involved.
You may be taking action on a private matter today, dear Sagittarius, as you’re feeling the need to get things done. The day is likely to be busy and productive. Money matters can do well, although not necessarily in a dramatic way. Instead, this is a time for serious consideration of a purchase or changes made to your spending. The goal is security over the long term. It’s also a good time for working on a natural talent, with focus on fine-tuning and improvements. You feel realistically confident and on top of things so that it’s easy to meet, and perhaps exceed, your responsibilities now. Expressing patience and tolerance is essential for maximum benefit from the day’s energies.
People in power are listening and taking note today, dear Capricorn. Personal impact is strong, and people tend to turn to you for advice. You are able to show self-restraint, which may have been missing in recent days with Mars traveling through your sign. Channeling all of this extra energy is not always easy, but today you are more able to do so constructively. It’s a good time for working on physical skills and fitness, with the focus on fine-tuning. You can be feeling quite organized and together, and this helps you to naturally radiating quiet confidence.
You’re likely to give helpful advice, and work matters tend to flow along well, dear Aquarius. You have more self-discipline to draw upon today, and you might be quite desirous of tying up loose ends or acting on a personal matter. Singular focus tends to be the best strategy today. Getting organized in a significant way makes the most sense right now, as it will serve to increase your motivation. Whatever you put your mind to can fare very well. Cooperate and listen to people in positions of authority for best results. The day may be on the dull side, but also productive. From evening forward, however, there is likely to be more excitement and there can be some surprises.
Feeling like you can rely on the people in your life helps lift your spirits, dear Pisces, especially after yesterday’s wavering, somewhat unstable energy. You are likely to feel stable and supported now, not because someone has gone over the top to impress you, but because you can see good things in their simple actions. The more serious or practical topics tend to come into stronger focus in your conversations, but this energy is not as dull as it sounds. You can in fact come across some very helpful information. It’s also a good day for practical decision-making, particularly revolving around money.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 4; Taurus 0; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 1; Sagittarius 7; Capricorn 3; Aquarius 0; Pisces 1
Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Inspiring, broad vision, enthusiastic, goal seeking, truthful, adventurous. Can be reckless, unrestrained, tactless.
Disciplined, responsible, reliable, industrious, conscientious, practical, achieving. Can be pessimistic, overly conventional, rigid, materialistic, callous.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 12; Earth 3; Air 0; Water 2
You are a highly-motivated person with many goals and aspirations for the future. You are vital and spontaneous, often enjoying the challenge of travelling down new and adventurous roads in your life. Your enthusiasm is irrepressible. Your weakness lies in your tendency to exaggerate and your inability to cope with the more mundane activities in life.
You lack objectivity – the ability to stand back and view aspects of life from a detached and rational perspective. You have difficulty making decisions and in the process of weighing up the pros and cons in a logical manner.
You are out of kilter with your emotions. Crying or losing your cool in front of other people would be a horrifying thought, let alone action, for you. You often lack compassion for others in your human relationships, and need to learn to honor both your own and other people’s feelings.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 7; Fixed 2; Mutable 8
You like to flit from one thing to another, finding difficult to settle down. You enjoy change, although you lack the stability needed to see things through.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are action oriented with managerial capabilities and the ability to get results. We may sometimes push too hard for our ideals.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on December 1st:
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 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.

You are easily able to sense other people’s moods and lend an empathetic ear.
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
