Prepare to be energized by the New Moon in Aries on March 22! This lunation in the first horoscope sign of the zodiac blasts off the Astrological New Year with a shot of cosmic caffeine that's bound to wake up everyone.
Increased physical activity is a good way to get the blood flowing, stir up bright ideas and provide the energy to put them into motion. Impatience is a risk, though, requiring a dash of detachment to provide the perspective needed to look before leaping.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This lunation in your fiery sign is bound to charge you up and get you moving physically and mentally. You may, however, be so ready to make changes in your life that you recklessly plunge ahead without considering the consequences. Being bold and innovative is awesome, as long as there's enough common sense to keep you from running through red lights or starting fights.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Self-motivation is the gift of this firecracker of a New Moon. It lands in your secretive and spiritual 12th House of Privacy, suggesting that you're not about to let anyone push or bully you. But it's vital that you take the power in this event and use it for your own good. Cleaning up old business and clearing mental and physical clutter will provide you with a fresh canvas on which to express your creativity.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Sparks fly in group situations with the incendiary New Moon in your team-oriented 11th House of Friends. Battles with friends, colleagues or organizations may distract you from your goals. It's fine, though, to start fires that are meant to motivate people or to initiate projects where you require others' support. Just slow down to explain your plan in order to overcome resistance to your innovative ideas.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Frustration can bubble over in your professional life if you're stuck with a boring job, a lack of prospects or you are tired of waiting for the go-ahead on a work-related plan. It's time to push a little harder to bring something new into this important part of your life. Starting your own business or taking a leadership position that challenges you can reignite passion in your career.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Thoughts of faraway places might be spurred by this initiating New Moon in your 9th House of Travel and Higher Mind. Educational, religious and political pursuits are also sources of excitement that can inspire your mind and warm your heart. Your strong opinions can influence the thinking of others, as long as you back up your opinions with facts and express yourself with quiet confidence.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Personal and professional relationships are likely to heat up with this fiery Aries New Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Boredom can trigger conflict within a current alliance or provoke you to take bolder action if you're single and looking. This is your chance for a fresh start by being more direct about your needs and more experimental in responding to the desires of others.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
This incendiary Aries New Moon lands in your 7th House of Partners to add more spice to your relationship life. Aggressive individuals may prod you to go faster or further than you'd like. Yet a healthier expression of this transit is for you to take the initiative with others. Whether you're pushing a professional project or coming on stronger in pursuit of love, it's better to lead than to follow now.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The aggressive Aries New Moon lands in your 6th House of Employment, Health and Daily Routines, where it is likely to increase the pace of your activities, whether pushed by others or by your own impulses. Learning new skills for work, developing a hobby and taking a more active approach to diet and exercise are positive ways to ride this exhilarating wave of fresh possibilities.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Creative and amorous impulses are prodded into action with this dynamic Aries New Moon in your 5th House of Romance and Self-expression. Your energetic personality can soar to greater heights as you dramatically show your feelings and present original ideas. Fresh forms of play and a growing willingness to take risks generates excitement along with a little dose of danger.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
This stimulating New Moon lands in your domestic 4th House of Family and Home to stir up energy on the home front. Conflict within the family and problems with housing are undesirable expressions of this provocative transit. But it's extremely helpful when you're trying to break ground on a new project or seeking a different living situation. Your urge for change should not be denied.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your powerful mind gets a shot of adrenalin with this explosive New Moon in your 3rd House of Information. Conversations grow heated, which can trigger conflict or awaken people to innovative ideas. Your patience can be tested by slow thinkers, yet it's better to avoid antagonizing anyone. Studying a new subject or becoming a more effective communicator both are potential benefits now.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Taking a fresh approach to self-worth issues and finances makes sense with this energetic New Moon landing in your 2nd House of Resources. You may have to take a risk on a new job if you want to change the nature of your economic game. Pushing yourself physically and mentally is worthwhile if you're excited about the rewards you can earn for this extra effort.
