There is good energy with us for expressing our individuality. Even so, it’s not an ideal time for brand new projects, as they may end up blocked. As well, there may be some misunderstandings today due to foggy thinking or imprecise/sloppy communicating.
- The Moon is in Aquarius all day (until Saturday, November 1st, at 12:36 PM EDT).
- The Moon is waxing, and is in its First Quarter phase.
- Mercury has ended its retrograde (on October 25th) and is currently in its shadow. Begin projects cautiously, weighing all angles carefully.
Some ambiguity is likely in your dealings with others today. Don’t push for an answer right now — even if you get one, it’s unlikely to be clear or useful. Going with the flow today will help life run more smoothly, as it’s only with pressure or high expectations that the day is on the sketchy side. A partnership or issues surrounding a partner can be hard to understand today. Friendships and networking fare better. Take a step back from pushing projects forward, if only to get perspective.
Avoid comparing your progress or your accomplishments with an idealized version of where you wish you were at, as this can lead to discouragement. Instead, focus on something small and attainable if you daydream. You are drawn to others who are idealistic, spirited, and independent at this time, likely because you long to feel free and uninhibited. You feel restless when things around you seem to be standing still. Go over facts closely and pay extra attention to your work today, as foggy thinking can be a problem now.
This can be a dreamy day, although you may feel a little guilty if you are not being especially productive. You might easily be misunderstood, so be especially careful in formal communications. Informal conversations may fare a little better, as long as they’re light. People may be trying to pin you down to something, but it’s best to listen to instincts that tell you it’s not time for a commitment. Suggesting otherwise can end up leading others on, which eventually leads to hurt feelings.
You and a partner might enjoy more emotional intensity and passion now. If you are not involved, a former love relationship may be renewed, or deep feelings are stirred when you recall memories of a past love attachment. Alternatively, your passion can be channeled into a project. It’s a strong day for tapping into your imagination, as well as to draw on your past experiences, in order to create something stirring. On the other hand, interactions with family, or issues surrounding the home, can be bewildering or somehow left up in the air.
You might find that conversations and debates entered into today seem to loop or eventually feel pointless, getting nowhere. If you’re in the position to do exacting, precise, or monotonous mental work, the day can be frustrating or difficult. Also take into consideration that your attitude towards money just now is not entirely realistic, so it’s best to avoid making impulsive purchases that you might regret later. However, if you aim to have a little fun, do some daydreaming, or involve yourself in freeform creative work, you’ll be working with instead of against the energies of the day.
Good energy is with you now for dreaming up creative ideas. While your ideas and dreams can be stimulating and inspired, they may not hold so much weight in realistic terms and will require some “pruning” at a later date. Relations with important others can be similarly unusual and out of this world. It’s not the best time to bring up serious topics for discussion, as you are not focusing on what truly matters. Try sharing a fantasy or two rather than filling in the blanks that a partner has left empty. You can express your feelings for one another in non-verbal supportive ways more effectively now than with words.
Your imagination is working overtime today, and although others can be drawn to you, resist the temptation to fib in order to keep up others’ ideals or misconceptions. You are easily swayed by images, feelings, and ideals rather than common sense, so that practical matters and work may suffer. However, if you can bring some imagination into the mix, you’re likely to enjoy yourself and contribute more. It’s not the most productive of days, but we do need some time off from over-thinking now and again.
There is a stronger need to retreat in some manner today. You are in need of some time alone or with familiar people. There can be some vagueness to deal with, along with an inability to focus and concentrate. Misinformation can be an issue now, so it’s best to use your enormous powers of discrimination to sort out what’s just a rumor and what is actually useful. While mental work can be foggy, dreams are likely to be vivid today. Lines between friends and more than friends can be a little blurry. Try not to read too much into the impressions you’re receiving now. Let things unfold naturally for best results.
You are very much tuned into the past just now. The tendency today is for memories and daydreams to emerge that pull you into reminiscing about past events. The triggers can be an actual meeting with or communication from someone. You are not in the mood for competitive, stressful situations now. Interactions with others tend to be vague or possibly confusing. Even so, this can be a good day to take a break from too much thinking and analyzing.
When it comes to career or reputation matters there can be some fogginess today. While some misunderstandings are possible, it’s best to redirect creative energy into appropriate channels. Things only become sticky when you try to focus a stubbornly tired mind too hard instead of giving yourself some creative room. Backing off from a problem temporarily can help stimulate new ways of approaching it. Work, money, and other practical matters can be tricky today. Don’t believe everything you hear, and avoid making important commitments or plans just for now.
With the Moon in your sign all day, you’re in the moment, emotional needs feel urgent, and you’re looking for feedback or reinforcement. Attention is likely to come your way. While you’d love to fly through your work now, you might be missing important details, so check all the facts. Forgetfulness or lack of attentiveness can be issues now, and practical affairs (especially finances) can be tricky as a result. Break out of your normal ways of thinking and entertain possibilities. Explore new ideas, but don’t bank on them yet.
Beware of coming across as elitist when it comes to expressing your viewpoint today. It’s never your intention to push your ideas in this way, but there can be difficulty getting your ideas and feelings across naturally right now. Important people tend to back off or shy away from making any commitments today. Take a break from thinking and worrying too much. Entertain possibilities, but wait to finalize something. Get extra time to yourself. It’s better to lay low today.

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.
