Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’ve never been one to hold your feelings back, Aries, and the universe invigorates this energy today as the Moon forms a conjunction with Mars. More than ever, you’re going to feel like it’s just right for you to chase after your greatest desires, and to live the life you’ve always wanted so passionately to live. With these two celestial bodies cuddling in your zone of home and family, you might strongly desire to finally come home to your significant other, or seek out a person who makes you feel at home. Know that it is not the time to repress these feelings, or to fight them. Rather, you must honor these desires, dear ram—listen and follow your heart and it shall lead you towards where you need to be.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you might find yourself getting lost in thought today as the Moon forms a conjunction with Mars in your house of thinking and communication. You might find yourself wondering, “what is love?” “why do we fall in love just to fall out of it?” But don’t drive yourself crazy trying to answer these questions on your own, Taurus. With Saturn hanging out in your 11th house of friends, you might find some luck when you open up about these thoughts to a close friend. Letting yourself become vulnerable with a person you trust will bring you the clarity that you seek.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you’re inclined to believe that we live in a material world today as the Moon conjuncts Mars in your house of money and material possessions. You might even start to believe that there’s nothing money can’t buy, and if you have the resources, you might start using your money to make some friends or even find a romantic partner. But remember that the real things in life can’t be bought, Gemini. You can’t buy the respect of your friends or the love from a romantic partner. Remember that you have to work on yourself and make an effort to care for others in order to get the love you desire.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s time for you to give yourself the love you give others today, Cancer, as the Moon finally comes home to your first house of the self. With Mars in the same house, you allow yourself to revel in your passions and pursue creative endeavors. Let yourself take in this energy today, Cancer. The universe knows just how much you deserve to finally take care of yourself. You’ve been taking care of others so well, but who takes care of you? You nurture others and bring out the best in them, but who will do the same for you? The answer: it’s yourself, Cancer. It’s always been.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A love affair is hurting you more than it should, Leo, and it’s time for you to let go. The Moon forming a conjunction with Mars in your 12th house lets you know that the longer you hold on, the more it’s going to hurt. Yes, the love might be passionate; yes, you might actually truly love them, but ask yourself this: do they love you back? Do they respect you enough for them to warrant your love and attention? If the answer is not yes, it’s time for you to leave and move on. There’s plenty of people out there who are capable of giving you the love you deserve, Leo, but you will never find them as long as you’re hung up on the wrong person.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Have you been having a hard time in the love department lately, Virgo? If you are, don’t let this negative energy affect your friendships. With the Moon and Mars forming a conjunction in your 11th house of friendships, however, this can prove to be difficult. Tensions might run high as you are very emotional right now because of what is happening in a current or past love affair. You might have a tendency to shut your friends out when they tell you the hard truths, such as that this person you’re with is not good for you. You might be too hung up on this person to listen to what your friends have to say, but you must do so, Virgo. Your friends were there before your partner was, and they care about you more than anything.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, your drive and ambition are fueled by the conjunction of the Moon and Mars today in your 10th house of career and status. You might be extra sensitive when you talk about work, which is a double-edged sword—on one hand, it only goes to show how passionate you are, but on the other, it makes you so sensitive that you might close yourself off to criticism completely. It’s not a good time to talk about career with a romantic partner as this will only result in arguments, especially since you’re very sensitive to criticism about your work right now. If you’re single, today is not a day for romantic affairs if you’re too fixated about work to focus on anything.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Your creative juices are overflowing today, Scorpio, as the Moon and Mars form a conjunction in your 9th house. You can channel this energy into your love life by being creative with how you treat a romantic partner. You can take them out on unique, creative, unconventional dates, draw or paint them, or write a song or a poem about them. This will surely add a bit of spice in the relationship, which your partner will certainly appreciate. If you’re trying to pursue a crush, doing these might just make them fall for you as you desire.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, your love life is filled with pure sexual energy today as the Moon and Mars conjuncts in your 8th house of sex. These feelings might be so overwhelming that it could possibly come as a surprise when you express them to your partner. However, don’t let these intense feelings hurt you when you get turned down. Sometimes, our romantic partners aren’t just in the mood, so know that it’s not you. If you’re single, you might be in the mood for having casual sex today. Saturn in your 4th house reminds you that despite this energy, you must be responsible enough to take care of your body as it is your home.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Your relationship is your greatest strength today, Capricorn, as the Moon and Mars go in conjunction in your 7th house of relationships. The red planet charges your relationship with intense, hot passion, while the moon reminds you of just how much love you have for each other today. Together, there’s no challenge you can’t overcome, no hurdle you can’t jump over. The world can throw its greatest challenges against the two of you and you will not be broken apart—instead, you’ll come out stronger together. If you’re single, on the other hand, you might find yourself wanting a relationship with someone who could make you feel stronger, and who could bring out the best in you.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you become extra mindful of your health and well-being today as the Moon and Mars go in conjunction in your 6th house of health. You’ve been checking in on your emotions, trying to find the cause behind you feeling a certain way, like why did you fall in love with a certain person? Was it because of an underlying trauma? However, a gentle reminder not to rationalize your feelings so much to the point where you end up actively avoiding them. Remember: feelings were made to be felt, they were not made to be rationalized. While it certainly helps to understand where our feelings are coming from, often, the only way we can truly understand them is if we let ourselves feel them. Similarly, sometimes, there’s no underlying reason why we fall in love with the people we love—it’s simply because we’re capable of loving.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re a hopeless romantic, pisces, and today, with the Moon dancing with Mars in your house of romance, your life might just turn into a romcom. Whether it’s boy-meets-girl, boy-meets-boy, or girl-meets-girl, get ready for some sweet, romantic love affair to unfold today. If you’re single, you might experience a meet-cute in a place as random as a grocery store. If you’re in a relationship, you might feel an urge to surprise your partner with a romantic, at-home dinner date that reignites some spark back into the relationship. Whatever the case, it’s guaranteed that it will end in a romantic kiss with sparks flying all around.
