    We are invited to plant seeds of passion today, and the Scorpio New Moon at 6:42 am EST provides a fertile medium for their growth. However, consistently nurturing our feelings may be trickier than we can imagine. The New Moon’s irritating connections with erratic Uranus and stabilizing Saturn make it difficult to fulfill our obligations. The Moon’s shift into far-seeing Sagittarius at 1:58 pm asks us to pursue our need for independence.

We change.”

    Allowing others in can be challenging now, especially if you feel emotionally self-sufficient. The evocative Scorpio New Moon falls in your 5th House of Creativity, encouraging you to express your passion through an artistic endeavor. Although you are quite serious about your goals today, you don’t want to minimize the role of play in your current activities. It’s all too easy to be dragged down by the heavy emotional energy.

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    You are at the threshold of change and you know you can’t go back to the way things were. But others can’t see the transformation yet because it’s taking place within your brain rather than in the world. In fact, the Scorpio New Moon plants a seed of intention in your 4th House of Roots, ensuring that the magic initially occurs hidden beneath the ground. You aren’t convinced that you want to go on this journey, but you have no more choice in the matter than a caterpillar has when it chooses to become a butterfly. Stop fighting the inevitable; you will be soaring high on your new wings soon.

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    Everything and everyone might seem too intense today. Passionate conversations about issues basic to your very existence are prompted by the Scorpio New Moon as it energizes your 3rd House of Communication. Even trivial interactions can become critical when you believe you’re in the middle of a life or death situation. Although your survival is not in question now, you may be required to let certain patterns die so new ones can grow in their place. At this time, the only danger you face is the unwanted fallout from your unwillingness to grow. Psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “What you resist, persists.”

    Sep 24 - Oct 23

    You are deeply committed to living in harmony with your values now. In fact, the Scorpio New Moon intensifies your 2nd House of Self-Esteem, motivating you to reevaluate the direction of your life and make corrections to your trajectory as needed. But your current career fixation does not involve making any changes today. You derive greater benefits from kicking off your boots, putting your feet up and reviewing all the possibilities ahead before choosing one. Thought before action empowers your success.

    Creating a bucket list for each month of the year is a valuable exercise that teaches you about the efficacy of your decisions, both the good and the bad. Meanwhile, the passionate Scorpio New Moon validates your 1st House of Self, making it doubly important to check in with your heart to reassess your personal aspirations. In fact, you don’t need to wait until next year to itemize your resolutions. There is no time like the present to create the life you want.

  • Sagittarius
    Nov 23 - Dec 21

    Your life is on the launch pad again but this time the rocket ship could actually reach escape velocity. The Scorpio New Moon reinforces your 12th House of Destiny, sending off a ripple of synchronicities while preparing you for an intervention by the “Flying Fickle Finger of Fate.” But it’s dangerous to jump to outrageous conclusions, especially once the Moon flies into optimistic Sagittarius. You’re so eager to start your new adventure that your spontaneity could cause trouble. Ben Franklin said, "Motivation is when your dreams put on work clothes."

    Your social network -- both online and offline -- is an anchor that prevents you from drifting aimlessly into space now. The passionate Scorpio New Moon enhances your 11th House of Community, inspiring you to raise the stakes in your interactions with others. You might even grow possessive of a particular friend, only to find that he or she isn’t interested in analyzing or labeling relationships. There is wisdom in this simple philosophy. Cherish the people who mean the most to you and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks. Stop looking back, unless that’s where you are heading.

    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    You are strangely quiet today, but your presence seems larger than life to others. The unrelenting Scorpio New Moon concentrates the cosmic energy in your 10th House of Status, but the most profound transformations are occurring out of everyone else’s sight. Nevertheless, everything will become obvious once you put your action plan into motion. Your ambitious goals are within reach; all you need to do is stretch your wings. Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote, “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
