The Moon is in Libra, sign of harmony and balance. That's what we strive for today, and it's compounded by Saturn also in Libra working with the Sun. Saturn practically insists on fairness and even the most independent or detached of us should find a way to fulfill obligations, help someone else out, and even compromise what we really want in the name of doing what's right. Sagittarius and Gemini might take a fresh perspective on something of that nature. Libra is a musical sign and an air sign, full of gracefulness, so music and dance will feel good today. If legal matters are pending it's a good time to give them attention and maybe even reach settlements. Tonight the Libra Moon is social although business will come first and it's likely to be personal and serious. Pisces and Aries should take financial and partnership decisions very seriously. Wear white.
There's so much going on in the zodiac, consider this a busy and changeable day! Venus, the planet of love and harmony, moves to Aquarius where she's still not in romance mode. Venus in Aquarius helps us detach where we need to, get out of dramatic relationship patterns, give caring advice, and foster friendships and community. The Moon moves to Scorpio at 5:33 am, opposite Jupiter in Taurus, and all this fixed sign energy is persistent but stubborn. Strong personalities, Taurus, Scorpio and others, may have big things to work through today. We may need to scale down, avoid excess, and allow others their space. It's not a day to push hard or pressure anyone. It is a good day to plant seeds that can grow, literally or figuratively. Work with focus and if the conditions are right, enjoy the Sun and Neptune's friendly vibes from Sagittarius and Aquarius. They urge us to find some escape and break from the many serious aspects in the heavens this week. Venus and Jupiter form a square and with effort we can achieve better personal relationships tonight. Taurus and Aquarius host that action, and Leo and Scorpio may find this true in love and partnership. Wear pink.
Today is the first day of Hanukkah and the eve of the Solstice. The Scorpio Moon is spiritual and in tune. It's a day of focus and also strong intuition. Trust your gut. Venus and Uranus mix it up in Aquarius and Aries, stimulating new friendships and relationships. Unlikely combinations form, between people and in general. Today has an experimental nature. The Moon and Mars in Virgo activate our practical and analytical sides too. It's a decent day for most tasks, business and other activities. Get at what needs the most attention. In some time zones, the Solstice is tonight as the Sun enters Capricorn for the official start to winter after midnight EST. Wear red.
The Winter Solstice arrives as the Sun moves to Capricorn at 12:30 am. The Sun is in harmony with Jupiter today in the earth signs. This is a mark of fortune and prosperity, favoring and feeling good to Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus, and potentially benefiting Aries, Leo and Sagittarius in terms of money, gifts and other abundance. Cancer and Scorpio may enjoy this with regard to long term love and family relationships. For all of us it's meant to be productive, decisive and prosperous so go for that pot of gold. The Sun also mixes it up with Uranus in Aries for lighting strikes of inspiration and bursts of news and surprises, some of which may require adjustment in ways of dealing or thinking. It's all in the name of progress, however that doesn't make all surprises easy to deal with at first. Let news settle in before over reacting. The Moon moves into Sagittarius at 7:03 am after a couple of void of course hours. The day may be somewhat unsettled at the start. It's a day of exploring and travels and movement in general. We'll break out of stuck places. Tonight the Moon meets Mercury for planning and educational decisions, and travels. Wear purple.
The Sagittarius Moon is moving things along at a fast pace, possibly without a schedule or plan to stick with. It's a "seat of your pants" kind of day, full of change and spontaneity. The Moon squares Mars in Virgo and we'll be analyzing situations and trying to choose the best solutions to problems or changes that come up without warning. Virgo is a practical place for a very assertive planet, and balancing a Sagittarius carefree attitude with what has to be taken care of is the ideal result today. Otherwise things we don't see eye to eye on could create confrontations. Allowing for change is necessary with the action in mutable signs. Holding someone to a plan may be difficult. Make adjustments. Go on a field trip. It's another day of travel and movement and changing minds. Get ready for a New Moon tomorrow. Wear pink.
After 2 hours void of course the Moon moves to Capricorn at 8:47 am EST and reaches New Moon status at 1:06 pm. Last month we had a solar eclipse at New Moon time, so today and the days just ahead vibrate with change, new developments and potentially unexpected news. The New Moon in Capricorn sets us up for resolutions before New Years. Making tangible, physical, practical changes, such as lifestyle shifts or business plans makes good sense. As far as the holidays, Hanukkah and Christmas both, tradition is favored by Capricorn Moon. Create a comfortable, simple atmosphere. The Moon and Pluto can be a bit dark or mysterious together and those two meet tonight. Deep feelings come up. New Moon in Capricorn relates to love and friendship for Virgo, a look toward outside or distant opportunities for Taurus, home and family for Libra, and close partnerships and relationships for Cancer. Today's color is white.
The New Moon continues to fuel and initiate changes today. The Moon and Mars work in earth signs for a grounded feeling. Hands on approaches, reorganization, and tradition work well, and we'll be most comfortable with what we're accustomed to. While personal and business changes mark this New Moon time, we won't want to mess with holiday traditions! Pleasures of the senses, the sounds, smells, and feelings associated with the season, will make us happy. Games and movement will feel good as Mars the physical planet is involved with the Capricorn Moon. Wear blue.
