There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The new moon in Aries occurs at 9:31 p.m. Chicago time.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The only new moon in your sign all year is taking place, which makes this the perfect day to create resolutions because it really is your new year! A wise person knows what is important to take up and what is important to avoid.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Because of the new moon, this is an excellent time to think about your spiritual world. We all believe in something. For example, if you think you “don’t believe in anything,” then that’s your belief. We all have beliefs.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a good day to consider the friends you have in your life. Do you hang out with quality people? My father said, “If you can say you have one good friend on your tombstone, you’ll be lucky.” As a teenager with “50 best friends,” I thought he was crazy.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Today’s new moon prompts you to think about your reputation among your peers. What do you want to be known for? Wealth? Status? Power? Fame? Popularity? Or do you want respect for being a decent, kind person?
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is the perfect day to ask what further education or training might improve your job skills or the way you do your job. Likewise, what further learning, especially to travel might enhance your life or enrich it in some way? Ideas?
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Today’s new moon is your chance to clean up red-tape stuff like estates, wills, inheritances, credit, taxes, debt and shared property. It’s so easy to put these papers in a drawer or a big pile and sort of forget about them. But they’re not going to go away on their own, are they?
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today the only new moon all year that is opposite your sign is occurring. Every new moon is an opportunity to set intentions. What can you begin to do to improve your closest relationships? Even a tiny improvement would be a win-win, wouldn’t it?
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is one of the best days of the year to think about what you can do to improve your health. Often this is a twofold approach: It involves stopping what is harmful and encouraging doing what is healthful and beneficial.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Optimism is a survival issue for you. You need to believe there’s something better around the next corner. Today’s new moon is a good chance for you to think about how to balance work and play in your life. And by play, this includes expressing your creative talents. Ideas?
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You value family traditions, perhaps more than any other sign in the zodiac. (Marriage, white picket fence, 2.5 kids.) Today’s new moon is an opportunity for you to think about how you can improve your home. And also, what can you do to improve your relationships with family members? Family is gold.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You are a modern, cutting-edge sign who is born 50 years ahead of your time. As such, people need to hear your ideas. Today’s new moon occurs in the part of your chart that highlights communications. How can you become a better communicator?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your focus has been on money lately, and today’s new moon occurs in your House of Earnings. How can you learn to handle your money better? How can you learn to take better good care of what you own? Improvements in these areas will only benefit you.
