Solar activity was low. Region 2783 produced a C1/1f flare at 20/1703 UTC followed by a C1 flare at 20/1845 UTC from unnumbered regions beyond the SE limb. STEREO A EUVI 195 imagery shows two areas of activity in the corona around the SE limb. These new regions are approximately 2-3 days from rotating onto the visible disk.

The solar kp index is quiet, with no changes to retrograde effects. The solar wind speed is currently above average, making retrograde effects moderately increased.

Solar wind parameters became slightly enhance early in the day with periods of prolonged southward Bz. Total field ranged from 1-8 nT while the Bz component reached a maximum of -7 nT. Solar wind speed ranged from 320-398 km/s. Phi angle was variable through the period.

There is a 25% chance of solar activity, with a 10% chance of a minor event, a 1% chance of a moderate event, and a 1% chance of a strong event.


The Moon

The moon is currently in Aquarius, at 21 degrees, 46' 21", at a velocity of 12.73 degrees per day.

The next new moon is at 16:18:45, 14 Dec, 2020. The next full moon is at 3:30:24, 30 Dec, 2020.

Moon in Aquarius

Pivot! Your originality is heightened while the moon is in Aquarius, so take advantage of it. Throw something into the mix for an ongoing project, or start up something just slightly off the wall. Consult with trusted advisors and bounce things off of them. Throw that spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks.

The moon in Aquarius pushes you to get in touch with friends and engage, perhaps even involving them in your nefarious plans. That said, your individuality is wanting to shine through when the moon is in Aquarius, so perhaps it's also a time for you do you! Let that spontaneous streak out?

Pluto

The Sun

The Sun is in Scorpio

The Sun will change from Scorpio to Sagittarius in the next 24 hours.

The Sun is at 29 Sco 39' 15", and is 147769096 km away and approaching.

The Sun in Scorpio

Life’s mysteries come into focus when the Sun moves into intense Scorpio. This Water sign is the detective of the zodiac, digging beneath the surface and uncovering hidden secrets about ourselves, others, and the world at large. This is a time when we’ll want to shine a light into the shadows so that we can transform one another with the truth.

Halloween, All Saints Day, and Day of the Dead all take place under the influence of the Scorpio Sun, and that’s no coincidence! The veil between our world and the realm of spirits (both visible and invisible) is said to grow thin during Scorpio season, heightening our ability to connect with those who have passed. This is why we’re especially drawn to all things spiritual and otherworldly while the Sun is in Scorpio.

Scorpio wants answers, and the only way to get to the bottom of things is to ask a lot of questions, keep your eyes and ears open, and investigate everything (and everyone) around you. If you’ve wanted to find out the truth about something, this is the time to do it!

Mercury

Mercury is in Scorpio

Mercury is prograde at 14 Sco 06' 34", moving at 1.5 degrees per day, and is 184687607 km away and receding.

mercury in scorpio

Scorpio thrives in the dark -- the realm of secrets and lies, questions and answers, death and transformation. It is an extremely inquisitive sign that is never satisfied with what is simply lying on the surface. Scorpio knows that the real treasures are found when you dig a little deeper, so while mental Mercury moves through the sign of the Scorpion, we all start asking more questions and searching for hidden meanings, but we may not be happy with what we discover.

When Mercury travels through Scorpio, it’s like Mercury is shining a light on all the darkest parts of ourselves. We become more aware of our fears and desires, and the ways that others’ lives impact our own. We can bond in much more intimate ways because we’re able to discuss topics that are normally off-limits.

But Mercury in Scorpio brings out the skeptic in all of us. While it may feel like we’re searching for something wrong in every situation, it’s really about emphasizing our negative thinking to get positive results. By eliminating information and ideas that don’t serve our needs, we make room for those that will.

Our minds are also more suspicious when Mercury is in Scorpio. Because it’s a time that emphasizes secrecy and privacy, we’re quick to assume there are things going on that we don’t know about. But if we push too hard to try to get to the truth -- which is very likely under Scorpio’s persistent influence -- we risk creating long-term issues of intimacy and mistrust. That said, Mercury in Scorpio does have the potential to foster greater intimacy as well. Because we’re more willing to ask the really hard questions, we might finally get the answers we need to grow closer in the process.

Pluto

Venus

Venus is in Libra

Venus will change from Libra to Scorpio in the next 24 hours.

Venus is prograde at 29 Lib 57' 11", moving at 1.24 degrees per day, and is 207047404 km away and receding.

Venus is in Libra

Love is absolutely in the air once Venus enters the balanced and beautiful sign of Libra! Venus is the planet that rules love, and Libra is the zodiac sign associated with one-on-one relationships. When Venus enters Libra, we’re gifted with a sweet time of peace that highlights our partnerships and social life.

While Venus is in Libra, relationships are light and lovely rather than hot and heavy. Libra is a peacemaker, and we’d rather not rock the boat now in order to maintain the harmony in our relationships. In fact, we’re especially polite and charming while Venus in Libra, and more likely to sweep issues under the rug. Those who typically find themselves in argumentative relationships can benefit from a break in the drama during Venus’ transit through Libra. After all, brash or rude behavior is a big turn-off now.

Love is, above all else, a two-way street during Venus in Libra. It’s a time when we’re reminded that the best relationships aren’t 50/50, they’re 100/100. Because Libra is so concerned with fairness and equality, imbalanced relationships will stick out like a sore thumb during this transit. Does one of you have stronger feelings than the other? Is one of you putting more work into the partnership than the other? If so, it’ll become very noticeable while Venus is in Libra. Thankfully, this transit also blesses us with the cooperation and grace to work together to make positive changes and start anew.

Though both Venus and Libra are strongly connected to our love lives, this planet and sign are also very interested in beauty and style. While Venus is in Libra, we want to surround ourselves with things that make us feel breezy, beautiful, and at ease. Spending a little on an updated look or on fresh decor for the home can bring us a renewed sense of pleasure and confidence now.

Venus in Libra is a time to love with your whole heart. Cooperate with others, strive for peace, and live lightly, and you can make the most of this beautiful transit.

Pluto

Mars

Mars is in Aries

Mars is prograde at 15 Ari 36' 15", moving at 0.1 degrees per day, and is 86176267 km away and receding.

Mars is in Aries

Mars is the planet of action, and when he’s in Aries, he’s on top of the world. He’s strong, independent, and fierce. There’s nothing -- absolutely nothing -- that will stand in his way, no matter what he wants to accomplish. Mars in Aries is always triumphant. 

Fiery Aries is a Cardinal sign characterized by immediacy, activity, and pioneering, so Mars fits perfectly into this fast-paced environment. Because there is little resistance during Mars in Aries, it almost feels like our obstacles melt away. But it’s not like they’ve totally disappeared -- we’re just too driven and confident to be daunted by them. Even though we’ll probably face these obstacles at some point down the road, that’s not the point of Mars in Aries. This transit is not about planning. It’s about moving forward, regardless of what may stand in our way later.

We’ll want to blaze trails, push ourselves, and tone our bodies and minds. We’ll be more likely to do things we’ve never done before during this transit. Mars and Aries are both about trying, not about winning. Success comes from participation rather than the conquest.

And while this incredible surge in energy can be beneficial, it can also become a challenge in our lives and relationships. Because we’re less concerned with consequences, impulsive behavior is likely. We may find that we experience more outbursts of anger, or that our direct approach rubs others the wrong way. Mars in Aries makes us all feel like "it’s my way or the highway," which means we aren’t willing to meet others halfway. We could end up butting heads more frequently due to the aggressive energy in the air.

Pluto

Jupiter

Jupiter is in Capricorn

Jupiter is prograde at 24 Cap 21' 29", moving at 0.18 degrees per day, and is 840194285 km away and receding.

jupiter in capricorn

We’ll see the biggest rewards when we make careful plans and stick to them during Jupiter’s transit through Capricorn. Persistence is one of Capricorn’s strengths, allowing us to overcome obstacles when we are clear about what we want and how to go about getting it. Unlike the huge leaps forward we took during Jupiter in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Capricorn is a time of moving at a more measured pace.

The moralistic and philosophical aspects of Jupiter take a conservative turn in tradition-loving Capricorn. We won’t just hope or think about things -- we’ll feel a pull to take action on them. Jupiter in Capricorn delivers the greatest rewards when we don’t operate from an "it’s only business" mantra. Unbridled ambition could cause us to get ahead at any cost, but this transit reminds us that while we can go fast alone, we can go further when we work together.

The downside to Jupiter in Capricorn is that we can become more attracted to power and the people who possess it. We might chase power blindly, giving away our own control if we’re not careful. But this undermines our collective strength. Each of us is a leader with a unique perspective and wisdom that contributes to our shared well-being.

Pluto

Saturn

Saturn is in Capricorn

Saturn is prograde at 27 Cap 35' 34", moving at 0.08 degrees per day, and is 1568163634 km away and receding.

saturn in capricorn

Saturn is the taskmaster of the zodiac, a teacher who he worryinelps show us our boundaries and structures. Capricorn is a disciplined sign that concerns itself with status and power. Both Saturn and Capricorn know that success takes effort, so there’s no taking the easy way out during this transit. This a time when we’ll plan for the future, build strong foundations, and put in the work needed to reap the benefits.

Capricorn and Saturn want us to strive for security. Unfortunately, this can lead to feelings of doubt, insecurity, and anxiety during this transit. We’ll fear failure more than we normally would, possibly spending too much timg about whether everything we’ve worked hard for will fall apart or never come to fruition. Instead of letting it deter us, we should use this as motivation to push forward even harder than before.

Saturn in Capricorn may not sound like the most exciting transit, but it can be one of the most beneficial ones to go through. This cosmic combination urges us to aim high, put our noses to the grindstone, and get concrete results. Think of Saturn in Capricorn as the ultimate get-your-act-together transit.

Pluto

Uranus

Uranus is in Taurus

Uranus is retrograde at 07 Tau 51' 06", moving backwards at 0.04 degrees per day, and is 2820972962 km away and receding.

uranus in taurus

Taurus is a sign that likes things steady and stable, and isn’t the best at handling big, sudden changes ... but big, sudden changes are what Uranus is all about! Taurus would prefer to stick to the status quo and keep doing things the way they’ve always been done. The problem is, the old ways aren’t always the best ways. Even if we are resistant to the changes Uranus in Taurus brings, we have no choice but to go along for the ride, and, chances are, we’ll realize in the end that these changes brought us to a much better place.

Money is Taurus’ main area of expertise, so while Uranus is in Taurus, we can expect some very revolutionary ways of handling and dealing with money, both nationwide and worldwide. During the seven years Uranus will spend in Taurus, brand-new forms of currency may arise, banks and banking could come to a halt or change dramatically, and the housing and stock markets may be in for a major shake-up.

On a more personal level, Uranus in Taurus encourages us to break free from the grips of money: debt, taxes, credit card interest, rent, and mortgages are all things that can prevent us from saving money or using it the way we want to. We may also feel trapped by our material possessions in general. During this transit, we must be ready and willing to change our relationship to money and materialism -- we no longer have a choice. Uranus is here to liberate us, and digging in our heels and resisting won’t make things any easier ... and won’t stop these changes from happening. The changes we make during this period can actually help bring us to a point of greater stability, and can be very long-lasting.

Pluto

Neptune

Neptune is in Pisces

Neptune is retrograde at 18 Pis 10' 44", moving backwards at 0 degrees per day, and is 4427993230 km away and receding.

neptune in pisces

Neptune in Pisces grants us a unique form of sight. As the Piscean focus on emotion and spirit merges with Neptune’s pull to unify all things, a clarity emerges from the fog, shedding light on our own contradictions. We can suddenly see clearly the futility of caring about petty differences. The value of coming together shines like gold, and the path to wholeness is illuminated.

This transit calls us to look at what we each can contribute toward our collective progress and healing. We all have gifts, ideas, and dreams for how things could be. Neptune in Pisces is an invitation to explore our emotional intelligence for our own unique offerings.

This is the perfect time to take a course in a spiritual path that calls to us, or to create an altar space at home and connect with that which feels most sacred. The energy of Neptune in Pisces nudges us to consider how to then share these ideas with the world, and reminds us that its presence will support us in this process.

Pluto

Pluto

Pluto is in Capricorn

Pluto is prograde at 23 Cap 02' 27", moving at 0.02 degrees per day, and is 5197737563 km away and receding.

Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto and Capricorn are both oriented toward success and power, sharing a strong sense of intention and focus that makes them very efficient in their tasks. We may find that our compassion for the viewpoints of other people gets cast aside during this transit, though, since both Pluto and Capricorn demand results. Beware of being intolerant of ideas other than your own.

Pluto wants us to jettison our negative patterns that no longer work for us. Of course, this involves some constructive destruction. Be deliberate in what you destroy as you create.

The Sun

Sun Sextile Saturn

Self-discipline, organizing ability, and stamina are the order of the day. You are methodical, systematic and can make much progress today simply by rolling up your shirt sleeves and getting to work. People above you are likely to notice your efficient efforts and reward for your hard work will be imminent. Constructive ambition, patience, practical insights, and maturity are the keywords today.It is easy and natural for those born under a harmonious aspect between the Sun and Saturn to accept responsibilities, to lead a rather ordered life, and to apply caution in their financial and business dealings. They rarely jump to conclusions or take uneducated risks. They have a certain amount of patience and enough self-discipline to slowly but surely achieve what they set out to do. Although somewhat undemonstrative, they are generally loyal and responsible people to those they care about.These are not the quickest-moving people around—they take their time and generally use a step-by-step approach to most projects—but they steadily reach their goals. Sun sextile and trine Saturn people are naturally trustworthy, and they don’t have much patience for those who don’t show respect for others, who take foolish risks, and who lead disorganized lives. With the trine, all of these traits come naturally. With the sextile, these traits are available when they are needed.Some Famous People with Sun in Harmonious Aspect to Saturn: Sextiles – Jennifer Aniston, M C Hammer, Ben Affleck, Meryl Streep, Carl Sandburg, Angelina Jolie, Winston Churchill, Robert DeNiro; Trines – Justin Timberlake, Leonardo DiCaprio, Muhammad Ali, Bono (U2), Ron Howard, Raquel Welch, Gloria Vanderbilt, Dinah Shore, Linda McCartney, Sheena Easton, Elton John, Catherine Deneuve, Pearl Bailey.

Venus

Venus Square Saturn

You may feel very unloved. You may see people as cold and calculating. People's lack of sympathy may depress you to the bone today. Social, financial, and romantic problems and disappointments characterize this transit. Selfishness and a lack of consideration are probably the reasons. You reap what you sow and now is a good time to analyze yourself and your relationships. There may be difficulties and delays with respect to women in general.Giving and receiving love are not flowing and natural for people born with Venus in hard aspect to Saturn. Blockages are experienced, and love relationships may be a source of frustration as a result, until the natives learn to love themselves, and to feel worthy of love from others. Duty is often associated with love, and some might find themselves stuck in a loveless marriage, for example. Especially in youth, these people might feel awkward in some social situations, unsure of how to express affections, and fearful of rejection. Problematic Saturn positions often get better with age, experience, and practice, however! In its more negative expression, some people with this position learn to scheme in order to get what they want from a partner, or they might treat partnerships as if they were businesses.These aspects can make natives especially sensitive to “cues” that suggest they are not loved or rejected in some way. People with Venus-Saturn in hard aspect can often “expect” rejection in issues of love and care, whether they are conscious of this tendency or not. This can often lead to negative situations in love — and bad timing or the feeling of having “bad luck” in relationships.People with Venus in hard aspect to Saturn might either downplay their physical appearance or pay excessive attention to it. Either way, self-consciousness with adornments is common. Often, people with this position sell themselves short. They are not risk takers when it comes to relationships, often choosing a path that they feel is safe, even if it is an uncomfortable one. Fear of giving can also express itself through tight-fistedness with money.The key to handling these aspects is to learn to loosen up and relax. Know that you may be oversensitive to rejection — and try to gain some perspective when you feel your love is not being returned to your satisfaction. Are you truly letting love in, or is there a part of you that is scared? Could your expectations and “heaviness” in the area of relationships (you might take love more seriously than most) be getting in the way of accepting love and affection? Venus-Saturn people may have deep-seated feelings of being unworthy of love, even if they are able to rationalize and decide otherwise!Alternate interpretations: Venus square Saturn or Venus opposition Saturn: *You are serious and find it difficult to enjoy yourself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. You rarely do something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in your early life, you are very cautious about becoming close to people and sharing your feelings. Though you crave love and affection, intimacy is difficult for you. You may become romantically involved with people who do not value you or treat you well. You need to learn to love and value yourself before you will find happiness in love.#You may find that your best sexual relationships are with individuals who are significantly older or younger than yourself. The role of teacher is so significant in your life that it may pervade your love life. You will need to overcome a sense of reserve or inhibition to deepen your spiritual connection.

Fox, Frank Gifford, Merv Griffin, Adolf Hitler, Dustin Hoffman, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Landon, k.d. lang, Janet Leigh, Charles Manson, Steve McQueen, Joni Mitchell, Dudley Moore, Christina Onassis, Joe Pesci, Michelle Pfeiffer, Lisa Marie Presley, Alicia Silverstone, Oprah Winfrey.

Jupiter Conjunct Saturn

You are serious minded and industrious with concern for long range goals and purposes. You feel a need to combine growth and expansion with prudence and good management. Make your practical affairs conform to your philosophic ideals. You exhibit sound financial management. This is a great time to handle all your business and legal affairs. Grow within your present boundaries.You have a conservative streak in you that is seeking the lowest common denominator. You get to your goal in life and accomplish much by slow, tenacious effort. Your life really takes off between the ages of 27 and 36. It is during this time that you “find yourself”. Your success is directly linked to the success of the culture. You rise and fall with the fortunes of everyone else. Seeing this principle in operation, perhaps you can pace yourself so that you don’t waste time and energy trying to push your own life forward faster than the country or the social order can assimilate it. — Interpretation from the Indra report.*Your aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. You pursue your aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and you are willing to take your time, advancing slowly and steadily on your way to your goal.Sometimes you underestimate what is possible, and hold yourself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.#Patience is the key ingredient to management of change in your life. You have survived many previous changes, and your spiritual future will doubtless include some more. You make progress in seclusion.~This aspect occurs about every nineteen years, lasts for a considerable period, and thus affects large numbers of people born during these times. In general, it indicates a period of law and order, and people born under it are pillars of society, quietly and nobly ambitious to succeed, but willing to do so only in an orthodox and utterly honorable fashion. If you have this aspect you are conventional, orderly, proud, aspiring, with a quiet dignity about you that impresses your friends. In whatever sphere you may be you are supported and made prosperous and secure to some extent. If you also have Moon conjunct/sextile/or trine Jupiter, or Sun conjunct/sextile or trine Jupiter: You will rise to considerable honor, or even fame, though you will have a long apprenticeship to serve before your value and worth are recognized. You are eager for recognition but hate notoriety, so your recognition when it comes will rest on secure foundations.If you also have Mars square or opposition Saturn: You have a swifter rise, more aggressive nature, and less certain tenure of public approval.If you also have Mars sextile or trine Saturn, or Jupiter sextile or trine Uranus, or Jupiter sextile or trine Neptune: There is a probability of wealth.This position is somewhat late in bringing its benefits, generally not being felt until after the thirtieth year, except in setting the mold of your personality and your ambitions; but after this it works steadily on your side. Positions of influence are most likely – government, army, ministry, the law. You may be an author, leaving your imprint on literature for generations.Some Famous People with Jupiter conjunct Saturn: Walt Disney.

This is a time to make constructive efforts at spiritual self improvement. Important changes can take place now through regeneration of your lower nature. You can understand life's deeper secrets if you're willing to expand your mind and keep it open to new ideas. Financial benefits may come through taxes, insurance, or legacy. Watch any tendencies towards religious or philosophical fanaticism.

Notes about Transits

Mars is all about action, and where Mars is in our chart with transits is a place where we are prepared to stand our ground. Mars transits can be really productive, but they can also be angsty, aggressive, and sometimes come from a place of anger. It's important to pay attention to how you direct that energy. Mars transits can last for up to a couple weeks.
Jupiter transits enhance your life with optimism and forward-thinking, and lasting for about a month, give you plenty of time to take advantage. Bigger and better is Jupiter's way of thinking, and should be yours as well.
Saturn transits, on the other hand, are where we get a major reality check, and if we’re not ready for them, they can be pretty rotten. Of course, if we’re prepared and up to the task, Saturn transits can also bring very well-deserved rewards, too. Saturn transits last a bit longer than Jupiter transits—usually 2 months or so at a time, but with retrograde cycles, you could be looking at the same lessons three times over a 6 month period.
The outer planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto last for such a long time that they make long-lasting impacts on our lives. In fact, Neptune and Pluto can last for two to three years! Consider their effects, plan accordingly, and make them part of your life for the better.
