ARIES (March 21-April 19) **** The new moon christens the new year. This specific new moon carries responsibilities and a serious tone with it. This event is merely a passage.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) **** You might not appreciate the insight you gain, yet you still know how to look at the big picture. Do not make more of a situation than is necessary.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) **** Make it your pleasure to share your resolutions with a loved one. You might find that a child or a new heartthrob could aggravate you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) **** The new moon affects you more than it affects any other sign. Partners, friends and loved ones could feel a bit out of sync.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) *** You could be playing it unusually low-key, perhaps because your mind is on taking care of another person. Someone might try to engage you in a fight.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) **** Today’s new moon might affect your mood toward a loved one, or if you’re single, it could ignite a new romance. Children could be touchy or serious.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) **** A loved one might need to kick up his or her heels. Avoid a discussion, at least for today. Don’t make any financial commitments.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ***** You might want to revise your New Year’s resolutions after some thought. Do it today, while the symbolism of the new year still exists.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) *** You will sense that a partner or loved one is off or depressed. You might choose to express your sensitive side when interacting with this person.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** The new moon could give power to a resolution or decision. This notion might stem from an extended period of deep thought and evaluation.
