This morning, when the silver gleam of the Moon meets the red light of Mars, we’re given the courage of our convictions. Our courage pushes us to make the first move, ask our crushes out, or say “I love you” for the first time. This bravery and assertiveness will be admirable, and we’ll tend to draw people in with our powerful passion.
To learn how this energy manifests in your sign, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Romantic feelings have always been difficult to admit, but not for you, Aries. The difference is that today, you’re thinking things through more carefully before taking your course of action. You think about the right words to say, what to do to make the other person feel your ever-growing, undying love, and how to contain these powerful feelings so you don’t drive them away. And when you’re finally ready, the courage comes easily to tell them how you feel.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The world is too chaotic for you right now, Taurus, so you retreat to the safety of the people you call home. While you’re in refuge, you take the time to connect with your inner self and to learn more about who you are. You’re too scared of the chaos that you end up hiding your feelings from the world, and it’s okay. Don’t feel bad if all you can do right now is retreat in the safety of people you love—you need it, and you certainly deserve it.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, your friends are your safe haven, which means that when they say the wrong thing, the fear that the safe haven will collapse is intense. You might take offense at the criticism they offer, especially when it comes to your love life, but don’t take it personally. The tables are simply turning as you’re often the one who says what needs to be said without fear or shame, even with the possibility of hurting someone. So don’t get hurt, or worse, lash out, when they give you a taste of your own medicine.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, you will find yourself spending a lot on a romantic interest today, and you will want to get appreciation for your efforts. You feel you will win them by giving them everything they could possibly want, but that’s not how love works, dear. Don’t be afraid of giving them the affection they need—that you know you’re capable of giving—and you will win them over. Your ability to nurture and care for others is a strength, so don’t let it go to waste.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’re energized by the thrill of the chase, Leo, which is what makes you want to meet new people today. If you’re in a relationship, be wary of feeling bored. Sparks naturally die as time goes on, but love can only grow. Spending several days, months, and years together can naturally feel mundane at times, but you will only realize what you have when you let it go. It is magical to know and be known, so don’t let the mundanity let you take it for granted.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’ve always had trouble with intimacy, Virgo, but today you’re making more effort as you allow yourself to connect with another person. You’ve found someone who makes you feel some type of way, and your fear of losing them drives you to make an effort to be vulnerable with them, even if it’s terrifying. You’re looking at your past experiences to see where you went wrong so you can avoid the same mistakes, but when you realize you’re still beholden to the same patterns, it might frustrate you. Change doesn’t happen overnight, Virgo. As long as you’re putting in the same amount of effort every day, you’re doing just fine.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You have so many feelings, Libra, and you don’t know what to do with them. On top of that, your partner’s feelings are yours to feel, too, and it’s overwhelming. These problems might come spilling out of you when you meet your friends, hoping they’d understand—and it stings when they don’t. You have this wonderful image of them in your head, and it hurts you deeply when your idea of them and who they actually are don’t match. Your feelings are your responsibility, Libra. Your friends might be wonderful, but they can only help so much, so don’t put the burden of solving all your problems on them.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, you have a good routine, and it’s really helping your mental health. Spending quiet mornings with your partner and calm nights together is something you look forward to every day. Having this kind of peace in your life finally gives you the space to dream, and to dream passionately. So you finally let yourself have the biggest ambitions and plot your way to get there, and it’s a wonderful thing to witness yourself finally breaking out of your shell.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’re a social butterfly today, Sagittarius, and you’re letting your charisma draw people in. Your boredom makes you want to seek out new romantic partners, which is a great thing if you’re single, but not so much if you’re in a monogamous relationship. If the latter is the case, perhaps this energy is best directed toward spending more time with your partner to explore new things and places with them. No matter how long you’ve been together, there’s always new things to try.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re going back home today, Capricorn, but you might be surprised when you see how the supposedly stable home needs changing. Growing up in an unstable environment, you’ve been accustomed to perceive the feeling of impending danger as something comforting, but now that you’re older and you’ve found the true, comforting love you needed as a child, you’re starting to realize it’s not normal. So you change. You break generational traumas and vicious family cycles. While change certainly can’t happen overnight, it truly says something that you’re the first one to make the effort.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You like keeping to yourself, Aquarius, but today you’re allowing yourself to be the center of attention. You’ve always been unknowingly charming, and when you realize this skill, you’ll learn to use it to your advantage—not just in social settings, but in your personal relationships as well. Your communication skills will be helpful in mitigating conflict between you and your partner and in your friend groups. If words of affirmation is your love language, you will be able to tell your loved ones you love them today, and with ease.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Your productivity is at its peak today, Pisces, and the driving force is mostly your desire for financial stability. You want to be the friend who provides for your friends when they need it, and the partner who sustains your partner’s needs, so you do your best to succeed for the sake of others. While your selflessness is admirable, it can hurt you so much when other people don’t see the efforts you make for them, so make sure you’re doing this for yourself, too.
