Today’s horoscope sees the Waning Crescent Moon pass through Virgo the Maiden. Virgo is the sixth sign of the celestial zodiac, believed to represent the Earth house of elements. The sign is said to favour loyalty, hard work and above all, kindness.
People with a strong Virgo influence in their life are also said to suffer at times from shyness and a tendency to get lost in their work.
This is typical of Earth signs, which have a strong sense of duty.
The Moon is paired with a Scorpio Sun today – the eight sign of the zodiac in the Water house of elements.
Scorpio is said to be resourceful, brave and somewhat stubborn at times.
And this is important to know because the Messenger Planet Mercury will enter Scorpio today as well.
Ms Silverman said: “When the Sun and Mercury are both in the same signs, which only happens for a few weeks, that’s a really classical flavour of Scorpio.
“And the Moon’s in Virgo, which is Earth, which complements it.
“So let’s take Monday and Tuesday, feel that month of October that was going out with all those T-Squares.
“There’s still a T-Square, but because there’s Earth in Water settling us down, the Sun in Scorpio begins a Sextile – that beautiful stellium in Capricorn.”
A Sextile in astrology denotes a 60-degree aspect between two signs of the zodiac.
Sextiles are said to facilitate growth by opening up new channels for harmonies and energies to flow.
According to Ms Silverman, Scorpio and Capricorn are only two signs apart and complement each other as a result.
You also have a T-Square with Venus in Libra opposite Mars in Aries, and Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn.
Ms Silverman said: “If a baby were born with this, the first thing I would focus on is the Scorpio-Virgo.
“The primary influence of the Sun and the Moon stand out, and that’s giving us the ground.
“Then we have all those planets in Capricorn supporting the Moon in Virgo, so now I’m feeling really stable.”
