    Sudden change is the main theme of the Libra New Moon at 3:11 pm EDT. Although loving Venus in diplomatic Libra strengthens our desire to get along with others, a tense lunar opposition to irrepressible Uranus tosses a wild card into the mix. However, clarity is hard to find while the Sun and Moon form anxious aspects to confusing Neptune. The Moon’s shift into transformational Scorpio at 9:40 pm confirms that metamorphosis is a one-way street.

  • Aries
    Mar 21 - Apr 20

    You want to be in a relationship just as much as you long for your autonomy. The Libra New Moon emphasizes your 7th House of Partnerships, encouraging you to balance your needs with someone else’s. However, its opposition to independent Uranus in your 1st House of Self brings the primary focus back to you. Finding common ground can be the start of a shared journey as long as you believe your freedom isn’t threatened. Compromise requires courage; nothing ventured, nothing gained.

  • Taurus
    Apr 21 - May 21

    You are eager to do your share of the work, but only if everyone else does the same. The gracious Libra New Moon occurs in your 6th House of Employment, enabling you to play nicely with your coworkers unless you conclude someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. You may appear complacent today, but anyone who thinks they can take advantage of you is in for a big surprise. Nevertheless, you’re willing to give others the benefit of the doubt. W. Edwards Deming wrote, “When we cooperate, everybody wins.”

  • Gemini
    May 22 - Jun 22

    Your romantic attractions take center stage today, prompting you to share your feelings with someone special. This person -- whether a new acquaintance or your long-time partner -- may be surprised by your sweet overtures. Either way, you’re waxing poetic as the Libra New Moon inspires your 5th House of Self-Expression. However, using all the creative tricks in your bag won’t guarantee the outcome you imagine. Ultimately, setting your expectations aside allows a memorable moment to magically happen on its own. Novelist Amy Tan wrote, “If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude.”

  • Cancer
    Jun23 - Jul 23

    You hope to gain some peace of mind about the unsettled atmosphere at work. You may be inclined to withdraw from the madness and seek refuge in the comfort of your home. Reminiscing as you reflect on memories is an obvious way to get perspective on the present moment. Fortunately, the Libra New Moon refreshes your 4th House of Security, blessing you with a sense of familiarity. No matter what, don’t dwell in the past; just use your recollections as insight while creating your plans for the future.

  • Leo
    Jul 24 - Aug 23

    You are motivated to discuss your position on an unresolved matter of importance with your friends. The Libra New Moon energizes your 3rd House of Communication now, but you’re thinking so fast on your feet that you could jump to a conclusion before you have all the essential facts. Although you’re trying to be fair-minded today, your analysis is more subjective than you realize. Your personal needs warp your logic and bend your reasoning toward your preferred point of view. Remember, truth has no agenda.

  • Virgo
    Aug 24 - Sep 23

    Although your relationship with the material world might be unwaveringly stable, your financial situation can change at the drop of a hat now. The Libra New Moon falls in your 2nd House of Resources, reminding you that a balanced budget is a beautiful thing. However, you can’t help but confuse your net worth with your self-worth today, making it tough to address money matters objectively. Unfortunately, relying on others won’t solve your problem because their fiscal circumstances are no more certain than yours. Greek philosopher Heraclitus wrote, “Change is the only constant.”

    More for Virgo: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Libra
    Sep 24 - Oct 23

    You might appear cool, calm and collected, but you can’t prevent your thoughts from running around in circles now. Clear thinking often leads to sound decisions, but obsessively playing the same recordings again and again won’t help you find your way out of an endless cycle. Luckily, the Libra New Moon motivates you to put your best foot forward, even if your direction is undetermined at first. Don’t let your lack of certainty slow you down; solid answers will come much quicker than you think. Own your power and your intuition will do the rest.

  • Scorpio
    Oct 24 - Nov 22

    You appear to be forthcoming today, but might be keeping the most interesting pieces of information to yourself. The Libra New Moon is operating undercover in your 12th House of Secrets, enabling you to bury your emotions in full view of those around you. However, the deeper you hide your passions, the more dramatic the scene when the lightning strikes and everything is exposed. Instead of waiting for something unexpected to happen, take the reins of control and preemptively turn on the lights.

    More for Scorpio: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Sagittarius
    Nov 23 - Dec 21

    Your personal interactions with others are invigorating today, and you seek them out for the good vibrations they emanate. The people-oriented Libra New Moon creates a buzz in your 11th House of Social Networking, enticing you to engage in conversations with friends about a wide range of subjects. Unfortunately, your words can be unintentionally shocking to your audience, possibly upsetting someone more than you expect. Nevertheless, feel free to speak your truth as you experience it. Alan Watts wrote, “Waking up to who you are requires letting go of who you imagine yourself to be.”

    More for Sagittarius: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Capricorn
    Dec 22 - Jan 20

    You may be obsessed with making yourself known today. The Libra New Moon lands in your 10th House of Authority, inciting you to capitalize on your knowledge and experience. However, an emotional bombshell temporarily destabilizes your home life and disrupts your concentration. Although you must respond to the domestic crisis, don’t take your eyes off your long-term destination. Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote, “Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”

  • Aquarius
    Jan 21 - Feb 19

    You are enjoying the panoramic view as you check out the multitude of options spread out before you. You can see all the beautiful possibilities because there are no obstructions anywhere in sight. The Libra New Moon points to your 9th House of Distant Horizons, shifting your awareness from the present moment into the distant future. Gazing forward puts your current activities into a much larger frame of reference. Sometimes all one needs is a change of perspective.

    More for Aquarius: WEEKLY LOVE

  • Pisces
    Feb 20 - Mar 20

    You’re quite flexible most of the time when it comes to getting your needs met. Although the Libra New Moon shadows your 8th House of Deep Sharing now, your values may clash with someone else’s even if you thought you were on the same page. Oddly, you might not understand what’s missing, but you want to know where you stand before making a long-term decision. Getting to the bottom of a mystery shouldn’t be so challenging, but everything is more complicated when there is another person involved.
