Times are EST
This is another potentially excellent time for repairing relationships and rebuilding faith in your projects, dear Aries. You are dreaming up unusual strategies for achieving your goals. It’s a creative time in most areas of your life. While this is not the ideal day for taking direct action, it’s very useful for observing the subtleties and nuances that you might usually overlook. You have the ability and the drive to make peace with others and to make them feel appreciated, and this helps to enhance bonds.
A friend can have some good advice for you regarding your work or health today, dear Taurus, or you might stumble upon some valuable information. This is not the best day for following a strict schedule as you tend to work best from your heart and are motivated by a sense of mission. This can be a time of creative inspiration. Even so, you can really get things done around the home or accomplish something worthwhile with family now.
This is a strong time for bringing more imagination and creativity to your career, dear Gemini, or for pursuing an artistic endeavor. You don’t always know exactly where you’re headed these days, but you’re trusting that you will discover the right path in time. Today favors strategy and perhaps a roundabout approach to things rather than direct, stern action. This way, you allow your intuition some room and bright ideas can come to you quite naturally. This is also a good time to reach out to others.
The intangible side of life is certainly still in focus today, dear Cancer, but some practical elements are falling into place. The Moon in your resources sector reminds you of what you need to make yourself feel more comfortable and settled. There is good energy for combining the familiar with the exotic now. You are open to new ideas, but also mature enough to respect and honor those things that truly work for you. It’s a good time to reorganize your work or home environment and for tackling tasks that you have been avoiding.
This is a great time for approaching typically taboo or complicated subjects with a nice balance between objectivity and sensitivity, dear Leo. The Moon is in your sign all day, encouraging a rather spontaneous, casual approach to your life right now, but you’re not afraid of some structure and work as long as you retain some freedoms. Self-discipline improves now. You are in a great position to improve your routines and habits. Today’s energies give you a hint of what’s to come — you’re entering a very positive, productive phase.
This is a good period for combining the best of the new with the best of the old, dear Virgo, particularly along practical lines, such as with work, business, and money. You are bringing more originality to your work, but you’re also putting in the necessary effort to move projects along. Creative solutions come to you if you avoid overthinking. Today is also strong for coming together with someone over shared values and goals. Family and partnership endeavors merge and cooperate, and this can be a big theme going forward.
The day is strong for connecting with others and enjoying friendships, dear Libra, but it’s also good for intuitive insight into work and health matters. You perform particularly well in areas that benefit from your excellent eye for quality, beauty, and elegance. This is not the best time for too much structure or attention to detail, but it’s useful for seeing patterns, engaging your creative mind, and developing strategies. Helping others can figure strongly now, and can be most rewarding.
Your creativity is peaking right now, dear Scorpio. You may be drawing on past experiences and possibly even difficult ones for creating something beautiful. You could also be bringing new ideas and twists to old ideas with great success now. It’s a good time to learn something new or to appreciate things about others that you previously didn’t notice in the same light. This is a good time to support others – there can be the chance to help out someone in need, and the inner rewards are great. The Moon at the top of your solar chart suggests visibility today, and perhaps some recognition for your work efforts.
Seeing another person’s perspective can be particularly enlightening today, dear Sagittarius. Keeping yourself open to this process is key now. It’s a good time for entertaining in the home or combining familiar and new elements successfully. There is more acceptance of the different shades of a person or situation. You see more good in something that you previously felt was mostly negative, and also the difficult elements of situations you thought were ideal. Even the latter is a pleasant experience as you appreciate moving away from all-or-nothing thinking, which can be demotivating. Seeing multiple layers and possibilities can be inspiring and uplifting now. You may be feeling released from a previous restriction.
A creative, open, accepting, and communicative approach to the business side of your life works wonders right now, dear Capricorn. You are opening up to new methods and ideas while at the same time honoring the tried and true, and this suits you just fine right now. This is a theme that will, in many ways, stick with you for much of the year ahead. Flexibility brings rewards now. This is a time for implementing small, manageable changes. Generosity with others, particularly in the work you do, can bring rewards and is a major key to success. There can be enlightening conversations that inspire you to do your best.
There can be small but significant breakthroughs happening in your life these days, dear Aquarius, and you get the sense that doors are opening up for you. Opportunities to fund an adventure, some travel, or courses may emerge now, or you might enjoy updating skills and learning new things. There is a sense that even the more off-the-wall ideas you’ve been entertaining can be viable with a bit of effort. There can be additional resources available to you to explore things you love and enjoy. Today, you can feel good about the ability to count on a partner or friend.
You are finding ways to combine the new and the old now with great success, dear Pisces, and you are rediscovering the fun or exciting elements of a routine or long-standing situation. You are attracted to what truly works and is reliable, but you want to mix things up just enough to keep a stable thing fresh and invigorating. Your ruler and co-ruler, Neptune and Jupiter, form a creative aspect now, and you can find a lot to motivate and inspire you now. Your natural generosity and tolerance are in demand and appreciated.

BALANCE OF MODES
The modes are balanced.
Current Lunar Phase
LUNAR PHASE: DISSEMINATING
Moon 135 to 90 degrees behind the Sun.
Sharing our knowledge with the world is a major motivation at this stage. We believe we have gained much knowledge and wisdom through our experiences, and want to ensure others have the benefit as well.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EST) on November 20th:
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 lifetime).
