Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You’re in a rather reflective cycle, dear Aries, and you’re likely to make some useful discoveries in the weeks ahead. A Sun-Saturn influence today helps you see the value of both preparation and foresight. Your ambition is stimulated in a pleasant, motivating way, prompting you to concentrate on practical details that need your attention. Getting along with a boss, parent, or authority can be in focus for some of you, and it brings rewards, too. You’re thinking about the long term instead of seeking instant gratification. There can be a happy focus on a task. You can very well be in a great position to secure or organize an area of your life.
With the Sun in your partnership sector harmonizing with Saturn today, dear Taurus, it’s a good time for improvements to relationships or for pairing up to accomplish something productive. You might feel quite accomplished or satisfied with a commitment. Positive gestures and actions taken now have a real and favorable impact on your future, without all the fanfare. Your sense of responsibility is particularly developed now, and it’s an excellent time for establishing better habits and patterns in relationships. You are a little more ambitious and motivated to face issues or tackle details that you might miss or ignore on other days.
This can be a wonderfully practical day, dear Gemini, even though the Moon spends the day in your sign, stimulating a more personal approach than usual. The Sun is currently in your solar sixth house — a transit that encourages you to focus on the nuts and bolts of your life — and is harmonizing with responsible, disciplined Saturn today, putting you in a fabulous position for self-development and laying the groundwork for future success. It’s a particularly good time for furthering health and work goals. Getting on top of the little things in your life can do enormous things for your confidence and general outlook. Awareness of your limitations is reasonable and doesn’t drag you down today. When you’re not avoiding or glossing things over, you feel more in control. A plan for better health and habits can come together.
While you’re in a more playful cycle in your solar year, dear Cancer, today’s energies encourage you to make tangible progress or to get things done! You’re willing to work hard towards a goal now, even if it’s a long-term one. You are happy to commit yourself to a task or even a person, or you have a nice sense of coming together or mutual understanding in the works with someone important to you. It’s easier than usual to put aside problems and accept responsibilities right now. In fact, you’re in the mood to organize an area of your life or otherwise find ways to make a relationship, project, or situation work for you. While others’ demands on your time remain strong, the added responsibility doesn’t feel heavy today.
Today can be an excellent time for working at improving home life, family, or work, dear Leo, and this can involve working harder at finding peace with those closest to you or making physical improvements. You are taking more pride in the functionality of these areas of life. There is great value in a careful or cautious approach to life today as your ruler, the Sun, harmonizes with disciplined Saturn. Organizing, editing, and rearranging are favored. This is a fine time for applying yourself to the practical details that hold your life together. Your attention span is longer and long-term satisfaction can be a goal. You are wearing an aura of competence and dedication, and someone may be recommending you. You’re feeling especially good about taking charge or getting organized now.
You’re in a cycle that’s especially good for picking up all sorts of information, dear Virgo, and today, you’re ready to apply it. This is a good day for improving a relationship with sincere communications or simply “being there” for someone. The focus is on stability, steadiness, and effort. A verbal promise or commitment may be made now. You are a little more ambitious today and more willing to put in the effort to achieve long-term goals. Making small improvements to your life is especially favored now, on emotional, mental, and physical levels. This is a time for strengthening, organizing, building, and stabilizing activities. Doing the responsible thing feels good today! This is due to a Sun-Saturn aspect that happens to occur at a time when the Moon is at the top of your solar chart, encouraging you to take care of your responsibilities.
You’re likely to feel grounded and enjoy focusing on getting things in order today, dear Libra, with the Sun’s connection to Saturn. Activities that remind you of the simple pleasures in life are in high favor now. This influence is realistic and practical, encouraging moderate, appropriate actions that benefit you in the long-term. This is a time for finding ways to strengthen or stabilize your life in crucial ways, particularly when it comes to your valuables, your finances, or your home, any of which may need some maintenance or upkeep. It can be satisfying to be responsible today! The best methods used today are tried-and-true, orderly, and organized. Take care of your things, and they will take care of you!
This is an excellent time for seeking out ways to empower yourself through activities that improve and strengthen your life and your future, dear Scorpio, if they don’t find you first! The Sun in your sign connects favorably with Saturn in your communications sector, and you might enjoy good advice, practical news, and useful conversations. Common sense is with you now. Applying yourself to mental and learning pursuits can bring rewards down the road. You enjoy small accomplishments today. Bold moves don’t make much sense with the energies of the day, which tends to favor realistic, deliberate, and moderate actions. Studies, training, and skills development can be in positive focus.
With the Sun and Saturn in harmony today, dear Sagittarius, it’s a great time to do something that helps strengthen your position. You might enjoy working behind the scenes, which can help you regroup and renew your spirit. You can learn something that fills in the missing puzzle pieces of a situation, and this improves your judgment all around. Getting time to yourself can be particularly helpful and grounding as you get in better touch with your needs. You prefer to work on worthwhile pursuits today as you’re looking for reliable results. You’re also in a good position to tie up loose ends, get closure, or resolve a long-term problem from your past, which can do wonders for your confidence and overall sense of well-being.
Your focus on your social and humanitarian or personal happiness goals is a little more serious or earnest than usual today, dear Capricorn, as the Sun harmonizes with Saturn in your sign. You see the value of slowing down and employing some caution right now, or of getting all the details right before pushing forward. It’s a good day for considering your longer-term plans and taking steps to secure or strengthen them. Friends or group connections can be supportive, and the practical side of your relationships is highlighted. Working solidly towards a personal happiness or group goal can be fruitful and fulfilling. This aspect particularly favors efforts to stabilize, strengthen, commit, build, and maintain. It also benefits your clout with others.
The Moon spends the day in a fellow Air sign, dear Aquarius, which is supportive and reinforcing, and the Sun harmonizes with your co-ruler, Saturn, which has a steadying effect. Others appreciate and value your common sense. It’s a good time for taking steps towards meeting your goals or strengthening your position. Business endeavors are in especially good favor, and work that you did in the past or behind the scenes can come in handy now. This is a time for applying your inner wisdom and experience to your work and feeling particularly proud of yourself and your accomplishments. The key to moving ahead seems to be taking care of old business or tying up loose ends.
While the Sun is now transiting an outgoing and adventurous sector of your solar chart, dear Pisces, its connection with serious Saturn today suggests you’re ready to put the extra effort into gaining new experience and feeding your spirit. You might find the motivation to work on a project that means something to you or to take care of practical affairs that strengthen or improve your life in small but measurable ways. You are thinking about what’s best for you in the long term, not just today or this week, and this can benefit you greatly. You have the enthusiasm to get going on your plans and initiatives, but it’s your patience now that makes all the difference. This is a day for taking action that benefits you and your future self!

Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
Today’s Emphasized Signs of the Zodiac
Agile, versatile, inquisitive, flowing, conversational, airy, many ideas. Can be volatile, superficial, changeable, restless and inconsistent.
Intense, magnetic, penetrating perception, power to confront. Can be destructive, vengeful, jealous, overly dramatic.
Today’s Elemental Balance
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.
Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. We are more compassionate, emotional, and intuitive than usual, and we may react emotionally to situations, possibly at the expense of logic or practicality.
Today’s Modal Balance
This is not a time that we tend to naturally initiate actions. We may be stronger at following up than starting anew. Survival mechanisms may be weaker now.
The Fixed signs are: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. We are thinking about the long view, seeking out security and stability rather than change. We may be committed, focused, resistant to making changes, and stubborn.
Today’s Lunar Phase
LUNAR PHASE: FULL MOON
Moon 180 to 135 degrees behind the Sun.
We are concerned mainly with the nature of relationships and are made aware of recent imbalances. Something can come to fruition. Our concern is not limited to personal relationships, but relationships of all kinds. Our cards are on the table.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on October 27th:
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 the Moon 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).
