Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

THE MOON IS IN TAURUS TODAY! Keywords: money, practical, stability, music, possessions, self-worth, morals, values, romance, slow to decide

The Moon in Taurus is moving through your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

Today begins with the Taurus Moon Void of Course at 6:26 AM EDT and finally settling in Gemini at 6:04 PM EDT. That's a full 12 hours of unscheduled, detoured and delayed circumstances as this lunar energy makes its way from slow and meandering Taurus energy into here-there-any-everywhere Gemini energy. This is quite a shift that may be very welcomed at this point. At exactly 12:14 PM EDT the Moon will actually enter Gemini but it will not settle down and get comfey until it reaches 03 degrees Gemini at 6:04 PM EDT. As I describe in the 3rd paragraph on the Main Void of Course Moon page, this is very similar to what the energy is like when you move from one residence (house) to another. The Moon is not only shifting signs, but it is shifting houses and this occurs every 2 to 2-1/2 days without fail. You should be in those final thoughts of self-worth that I wrote about yesterday and figuring out of how you can shift that energy. Maybe you have been meandering around thinking about a lot of things through over the past two days and now with the Moon in Gemini, you are ready to take off and make things happen for yourself.

Interestingly enough, Mercury the natural ruling planet of Gemini turns Retrograde today until November 10, 2013. Mercury, which rules communication in all forms including our mental abilities, paperwork, machines and the gadgets that we use to communicate. Mercury Retrograde is always a great time to take care of old business, especially while we are still in the two week period following the Full Moon in Aries that just occurred on Friday, October 18, 2013. Think in terms of 'wrapping up old projects with a nice little bow' during this time. Retrograde planets always serve as wonderful do-overs for us as well, so that we can re-do or complete that which we had already started. In other words, all of those half done or nearly done projects need to be wrapped up now. These Retrograde do-overs give us a chance to get things right before we progress forward. So if you can think about what area of your Life you would like to move forward in, then this is a great time to clean up and clear out that area of your Life. Better yet, for all Gemini's on the planet, this will impact your 6th house of health and activities of daily living including work and work ethic and it will especially impact your personal Natal Chart in the area that is ruled by Scorpio because Mercury happens to be in the sign of Scorpio. If you are on Facebook, then you may have seen that Facebook had a huge issue right out of the Mercury Retrograde gate this morning because a bazillion people including yours truly could not log in. It was all over the Twitter feed as well.

During Mercury Retrograde you may be dealing with issues in the area of health, fitness, nutrition, activities of daily living or even your work ethic, co-workers or employees. Either way, there is a backward motion going on here where you have to retrace your steps and fix something that needs your attention. This may feel like a setback but it is actually calling for you to improve upon this area of your Life before you progress forward. Mercury Retrograde doesn't really last all that long but the effects can certainly feel like it especially if you attempt to be difficult. Gemini and Virgo are naturally ruled by Mercury, so you may feel this much more than the other signs. The only exception I can think of is that if you were born during Mercury Retrograde you may not feel it as harshly as others because it is something that you live with every single day. Contrary to popular belief, Gemini is incredibly organized and usually pretty healthy because they are so active. This is the perfect time for you to retrace your steps and regain control over your activities of daily living. You may lost your edge or more than likely, you may have gotten bored and need to change your game in order to stay interested. You will need to monitor your speech, writing, e-mail, texts and social media postings so that you do not end up communicating something that is taken completely out of context. Focus on your daily regimen and a healthy routine that will keep your interest until the next Mercury Retrograde. Delays right now are not such a bad thing, it may only seem that way.
