Today, December 11, 2023, starts with an early morning transition of the Moon from reserved Scorpio to boisterous Sagittarius. When the Moon enters the mutable fire sign of the zodiac, we can experience emotions that thrive on impulse rather than reason. We can feel optimistic and full of enthusiasm, yet we can also feel reckless and act before we have a chance to think.
Today marks a beginning that involves dealing with a culmination of frustration that pulls between a desire to act on impulse and a restriction blocking us, as the Moon in Sagittarius forms a square to Saturn in Pisces at 9:08 a.m. (EST). Feeling torn and a bit scattered is to be expected, but acting on our emotions in the moment isn’t advised. Moon transits show up quickly and can feel startling, but only stick around for a short time.
A few hours later, Mercury in Capricorn forms a supportive sextile to Venus in Scorpio, which can stimulate our creative sides and have us come across as eloquent and persuasive, with some charm thrown in the mix for good measure. If you can start your day working through the emotions, you can find ways to solve your problems throughout the rest of it.

Today may prove emotional for you, Aries, but it’s only a moment in time. The Moon moves into your fellow fire sign, Sagittarius, in your 9th House of Philosophy, Higher Education, and Travel. While this energy is typically more optimistic and even reckless in nature, earlier in the day, it forms a square with Saturn in Pisces—and the results have you feeling some restrictions thrown up emotionally, although you may feel you’re about to burst. With Saturn in your 12th House, you could feel some guilt surrounding secrets, and you may find it more difficult to share what you’re experiencing with your loved ones. The Moon in your 9th may point to your feeling held back and restricted from pursuing the things you crave on a higher level.
Later in the day, however, you have the opportunity to feel a bit lighter when Mercury in your 10th House sextiles Venus in your 8th House, giving you some excitement in your connections and may make sharing your thoughts and feelings easier to do. Take the late morning and early evening to process your emotions personally before bringing them to others—you’ll be glad you did.
As the Moon in your 8th House forms a square to Saturn in your 11th House, you could struggle to express how your finances and priorities impact your friendships. You have strong intuition regarding others’ intentions, but today, you could feel like you’re experiencing an emotional block that leaves you uncertain. Try not to make rash decisions before you have all the facts.
Later, Mercury in your 9th House forms a sextile to Venus in your 7th House, which can lift your spirits and serve as a great time to make plans with your partner or close friends—brainstorming travel ideas could be just what you need.
Today, you could be feeling resentful towards people who you feel don’t truly see you, Gemini. The Moon in your 7th House of Partnerships forms a square with Saturn in your 10th House of Career and Public Image, and it could feel as though you are emotionally stuck in explaining how you feel. You could have felt hurt by a partner wanting to hide you (notably on social media) or by close friends who seem to leave you out. Emotional blocks could also be present between you and authority figures, leaving you resentful. While doing something impulsive is tempting, it won’t fix the problem.
Later, when Mercury in your 8th House forms a sextile to Venus in your 6th House, there could be a chance to bond with your partner or family members through an activity or discussion surrounding new goals and habits to engage in together.

If you need to get the tension out, call your family or a close relative today and talk about how you’re feeling before hashing things out.

You’re feeling fed up today regarding your job and how it doesn’t play into your passions today, Scorpio. You’re more than aware that creative jobs don’t always pay well, and with the Moon in your 2nd House of Income and Values forming a square to Saturn in your 5th House of Creativity and Romance, you’re more emotional about it than usual.

You’re struggling to take some time to yourself today, but it’s needed, Capricorn. With the moon in your 12th House of Subconscious and Isolation forming a square to your 3rd House of Communication and Community, you’re overthinking things to a whole new level—feeling a gut instinct and not being able to back it up with hard evidence is not easy. You are stressing yourself out by trying to find the “truth”—stop scrolling through socials for clues and instead take a step back and sit with these feelings.
Later, when Mercury in your 1st House of Self and Identity forms a sextile to Venus in your 11th House of Friendships and Networking, you may feel more inclined to set yourself apart from those around you—but with full support from those you care about. Taking your mind off what could be and grounding yourself in what is could do wonders for you today.
You want to do more, Aquarius, but you’re struggling to see how. With the Moon in your 11th House of Friendships and Networking forming a square to Saturn in your 2nd House of Income and Values, you find yourself desperately wishing to support your friends and bigger causes, but financially, you don’t have the means—and it’s weighing on you heavily today.

Later, when Mercury in your 11th House forms a sextile to Venus in your 9th House of Philosophy, Higher Education, and Travel, you may find solace in coworkers who feel the same about these limited expressions. You could brainstorm ways to tackle the issues together—there is more power in community, after all.
