With the Moon in your solar tenth house today and much of tomorrow, dear Aries, you may be thinking about or assessing life goals and general direction. Responsibilities tend to be magnified now. This can be a good time to fulfill duties or enjoy the rewards of recent accomplishments, even with a possibly disappointing or demotivating speedbump this morning. It’s also a period for taking stock of these accomplishments and envisioning what you’d like to do going forward. You might feel more interested in working towards your own goals than socializing today, or could be finding entertainment and joy in what you’re doing. You have a good sense for business and leadership after a possibly pessimistic morning.
With many influences in fellow Earth sign (Capricorn), you are being offered many opportunities to lighten up, release stress, and go after what you want with little in the way of opposition, dear Taurus. While the morning can present a hurdle, likely of your own making (perceiving things in a negative light), as the day moves forward, it’s easier to get yourself into a positive groove. There could be a chance to pursue a special interest or mini adventure can arise now, releasing you from intense feelings, or there can be an opportunity to enjoy a change of scenery with someone special.
There is a strong emphasis on your solar eighth house these days, dear Gemini, and this can stimulate you to look more deeply into yourself, your relationships, and life itself as you look for motivations and meaning. An important lesson to learn during this time is that dependency on others, when overdone or motivated by fear, can lead to negative feelings and skewed perceptions. In truth, as you shed fear-based attachments and dependencies, you are more able to see the people around you in a compassionate light, and relationships can be enriched as a result. Even so, this is a time for allowing yourself to really feel your feelings, not to detach yourself from them. There can be more warmth in your closest relationships now. You might come to an epiphany about a past or current love relationship.
There is a strong emphasis on your house of “other” right now, dear Cancer, and VIPs in your life are assuming more importance, whether this is to expand a work project, or simply because you enjoy their company. While there can be some concerns this morning, as the day progresses, you’re likely to feel happier about your connections. This is a good time for counseling, negotiating, and interviewing. Seeking out advice, or even just input, from other people can be in focus and very helpful now. Work becomes more sociable and inclusive of others. This can also be a time for weighing pros and cons, making adjustments and concessions, and generally attempting to find balance.
With a strong emphasis on your solar sixth house now, dear Leo, generally speaking, you are more inclined to make adjustments than to forge ahead with plans. There is a stronger need to take care of practical matters, and you could be especially interested in seeing results and getting things to work. You are coming down to earth, but you could be a little inundated with details or tasks that require tying up loose ends or grunt work. This is the time for less glamorous, but very important, work. You are laying down the foundation for the future.
Your creative powers are strengthening now with a strong emphasis on your solar fifth house, dear Virgo, and you may very well find that your feelings for loved ones are more strongly felt. Affections and possibly romantic feelings are more easily stirred. Ideally, you’ve been working on self-integration in December, and now you’re more able to share yourself and connect with others. This is a favorable time for activities that come from the heart or that require the expression of feeling, although this is more likely after the morning, when insecurities can temporarily keep you from feeling free to express yourself openly.
Your nesting instincts are stronger today and much of tomorrow, dear Libra, with the Moon transiting your solar fourth house. However, with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury also in this sector of your chart, this is a general theme for you these days. There can be a tendency to seek out emotional satisfaction and comfort through family, home, domestic activities, or familiar activities. Your more nurturing side tends to dominate now. The emphasis is on finding peace and comfort, and a stronger sense of self, that you can bring with you into the next phase, which is a very creative and expressive one. This morning, however, watch for a tendency to be so self-protective that your mood drops and your relationships suffer.
You’re more ready and willing to communicate now with a strong emphasis on your solar third house, dear Scorpio, and you can find much joy and fulfillment through reaching out to others, although you may have to deal with a hiccup this morning that leaves you feeling a little unappreciated or out of the loop. There can be a stronger desire to learn a new subject, teach, or brush up on skills. There can also be some restlessness with your personal environment and a desire to see and experience different things. While you’re not inclined to stray too far from your home or regular routine now, you do feel the desire to mix things up and change the scenery enough to keep yourself engaged.
Recently, there has been a lot of focus on your independence, dear Sagittarius, but a shift is occurring in your solar chart that places emphasis on building and structuring your life. Security, comfort, and safety are becoming increasingly more important to you. There continues to be a focus on your own needs and autonomy, but now you are more interested in being careful, and even patient, in order to protect your interests. It’s a time for slowing down and taking stock, but also for building and strengthening your projects, possessions, or ideas. You typically don’t adhere too closely to a schedule, but right now, you may be craving more routine or predictability. Take this time to draw upon your increased intuition to think up new ways to protect, improve, or build your resources.
With the Moon in your sign today and much of tomorrow, you could be feeling the need to release emotions that have been building up inside of you, dear Capricorn. There is a strong emphasis on your sign now, and you are more inclined to declare your needs, feelings, and ideas. You have the green light for pursuing personal interests and seeking more independence. You are more engaged and connected than usual. Many of you may be making changes and tweaks to your personal image, appearance, attitudes, and habits. You are more inclined to cause a stir and to get noticed now. This morning, however, there can be a brief feeling of not being appreciated or a difficulty with a friend, after which things pick up pace.
Where your feelings and those of others end and begin can be unclear while the Moon transits your solar twelfth house, as it does today and a good part of tomorrow, dear Aquarius. As you may be especially sensitive to, and possibly overwhelmed by, others’ emotions, taking time for yourself to meditate, rest, and reflect can be helpful. Slowing down and reflecting on recent events is especially appropriate now with a strong focus on this same house in coming weeks. Activities that honor your need to reconnect with your inner spirit are particularly appropriate now.
With the Moon in your solar eleventh house all day today and much of tomorrow, you are in a more sociable phase, dear Pisces. You’re a little more detached and impartial, and this helps you to enjoy socializing more than usual. This same house is emphasized strongly now and in coming weeks, making it especially appropriate for you to reach out and make connections – and beneficial as well. You might discover new goals, skills, and ideas as you network. With your ruler, Neptune, in your sign and in creative aspect to Ceres in your professional sector today, don’t dismiss ideas about business or life path goals that come to you seemingly out of the blue. They may very well be golden.

We may have problems moving forward our ideas or creative work at this time, but should watch for attempts to manipulate others to adopt or accept our plans. Conflicts can be difficult to resolve with a general stubbornness and unwillingness to bend or make concessions.
BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 1; Taurus 0; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 0; Libra 0; Scorpio 1; Sagittarius 0; Capricorn 11; Aquarius 2; Pisces 1
Disciplined, responsible, reliable, industrious, conscientious, practical, achieving. Can be pessimistic, overly conventional, rigid, materialistic, callous.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 2; Earth 11; Air 2; Water 2
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.
You are a practical and efficient, hands-on person. You can be relied on to take a common-sense approach to most matters. Your down-to-earth manner stands you in good stead for the daily chores of life. Your weakness lies in your sometimes stubborn refusal to make changes in your life. You tend to stifle both your own and other people’s enthusiasm.
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 12; Fixed 4; Mutable 1
You enjoy challenge and action, and become frustrated when you have no recourse for change. You expect others to also rise to a challenge.
You find it difficult to adapt to new situations. You tend to be inflexible when faced with the demands of change and other people.
LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are impulsive, always looking for new opportunities to express our ideas. We react from our own subjective viewpoints. We enjoy starting new projects.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on December 22nd:
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.
