This is a strong time for creative and logical thinking. There is great hunger for knowledge and desire to solve problems and mysteries. Our ability to make connections and see patterns is enhanced. However, Venus changes signs today, and it’s best to hold off on decisions about money and love.
- The Moon is in Virgo all day (until Monday, November 17th, at 2:30 PM EST).
- The Moon is waning and in its Last Quarter phase.
- Neptune has turned direct.
- Venus enters Sagittarius (transit lasts from November 16-December 10).
While there can be some tension and impatience later today, overall, conversations with others now can help you out tremendously. Helping someone else can make you feel especially strong, and others can be good sounding boards for business or monetary problems and strategies. It’s also a time for truly seeing problem areas in your thinking/attitude that need to be discarded and put behind you once and for all. Business matters can move forward in interesting ways, and especially if you are looking to new technologies or thinking progressively. It’s an inventive time. Through problems, you are learning how to prevent further ones.
Today is strong for connecting to your inner power, or to someone special in your life. It’s good for healing, supportive conversations, but possibly short on patience later today. Being willing to dig deep is vital now – if you skim the surface of problems or look for quick bandaid fixes, you’ll pass by on the opportunities of discovery available now. Through another person or a partner, you are discovering or redefining ideas and belief systems. There can be a pleasantly intimate feeling to the day.
Today, you can be especially sensitive to otherworldly impressions and to the undercurrents around you. Ideas are buzzing today, particularly on work or health lines, and your powers of investigation are stronger than ever. You are busy today, and love to be. You are also good at seeing what is no longer working for you, making it a good time to cut things out of your routine or health regimen. When you hang on to things, methods, ideas, attitudes, and even people that/who are no longer serving you well, multiple problems occur across many life departments; knowing what to let go of or cut from your life becomes powerful. While this might only be on the level of the mind right now, action can come later, and this is the first step.
Today’s energies are strong for feeling in control. There is a sense that you can accomplish pretty much anything you set your mind to, and you can experience an increase in patience. It’s also an excellent time for sharing with a loved one. You’ll find things are in sync and natural; conversations can be productive and progressive, and they can also be healing and supportive. This is a good day for tending to details, studying, connecting, learning, and having a heart-to-heart.
While a significant other may be unreliable or tense at times today, there can be helpful conversations with family, and you can break some ground on emotional and intimate matters. It’s a strong day for power thinking, planning, and strategy. You could arrive at a new commitment, plan, or set-up on the domestic front, and today is good for figuring out strategies behind it. Conversations with or about family today can be heartwarming and even energizing.
This is a great time for pursuing a learning endeavor, studies, or creative outlets. You are especially valued for your opinion and can be sought out for advice now. Important, possibly even life-altering conversations may even occur now. These can be subtle, but can point you in a new direction. You are also expressing yourself with strength. Solving problems, finding patterns, and involving yourself in something absorbing and meaningful to you can be highlighted now, and you can learn something of true value. The Moon is in your sign all day, and is supported by Mars, boosting your powers of attraction and assertion.
While there may be some impatience and cranky energy later today, this can be a strong time for talking things through. Conversations can be immensely healing and helpful. Problem-solving on the job or concerning money and business is enhanced right now. You might discover information or objects that were lost or hidden. It’s a good time to take care of your valuables. This is a time to rid yourself of the unnecessary, whether these are in your closet or brain. Redo a budget or make a plan that revolves around money or family affairs.
While there can be difficulties getting your routine to run smoothly today, your personal life can enjoy a nice boost with open conversations and compassionate understanding. There can be new ideas coming to you now that may be quite successful and helpful for you in the future. This can be a strong day for personal influence. It’s also good for clearing up unfinished work, organizing, sharing ideas and helpful tips, and connecting with others. New relationships formed now can be especially strong on intellectual levels. Problem solving is easier today.
This is a good day for immersing yourself in learning about something that truly interests and pleases you. There is a rebellious tone to the day, and a stronger than usual desire to assert your independence creatively and uniquely. A partner, romantic or business, can be helpful with advice or support. Sharing something personal or private can be rewarding, purging, and healing. You might see clearly today that focusing on one thing – a priority – will serve you best.
While you can be quite fired up and ready for action today, it can be difficult to know where and how to channel your energy, and the result can be some level of restlessness. Interactions with friends can be helpful and healing, however. Really good ideas can come through teamwork, networking, a friend, or associate. Cementing a bond with a friend can figure strongly today, and it’s all in the way you communicate. Willingness to listen, understand, and help is the key right now.
There is good energy with you today for uncovering information that may have been hidden or simply not obvious to you previously. New insights can be gained into others’ motivations, as well as your own. Past good deeds can bring rewards to the present. Support from behind the scenes can figure strongly today. Your reputation for keeping a secret or for discretion is strong now, and others more readily put their faith in you. Self-expression may be urgent or hasty later today. Consciously try to slow yourself down if you feel scattered, tense, and disagreeable.
Today is strong for conversations with partners and friends. You can come to a more workable solution to relationship problems if you have any, or simply share some insights and opinions with one another that strengthens your bond. You could also be feeling more confident as a result of your involvement in a team, or for contributions you make to a cause or group effort. You more easily assert yourself and stand up for what you believe in, but your ability to do so in a gentle way is what truly wins others over. Don’t skim the surface of things right now. Be unafraid to dig deep.

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 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 speak from your heart, and are a compassionate and caring person with a strong intuitional nature. You value your personal relationships, in which you often taking on a caretaker role. You are such a sympathetic and understanding person that you are often caught in the role of mother to your loved ones. Your weakness lies in the fact that you fail to take an objective perspective when necessary. You often react without thinking things through first.

LUNAR PHASE: THIRD QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 45 degrees behind the Sun.
We have strong beliefs and are likely to put them into action. We have the wisdom to know when to act, but sometimes can be inflexible.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on November 16th:
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.
THE MOON IN VIRGO
You will experience a strong link between the emotions and the body. You have a need for perfection. You may become ill when under stress. Your mother may be critical or a perfectionist. She will provide you with structure and order.
