The Virgo new Moon and Sun sextile Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter brings luck for success, and a period of growth and optimism. These aspects are good for group activities, especially positive interactions with women, and are favorable for financial transactions.

The new Moon and Sun trine Pluto in Capricorn. Emotions seem more powerful, and sensitivity is stronger. People can speak about deep feelings, with a sense of surviving challenges of the past. Plus these Pluto trines can bring increased vigor to overcome illness, or to start preventative healthcare practices.

The new Moon and Sun are opposite Neptune in Pisces. If people experience strange moods, they could be sensitive emotionally but not sure if what they feel is accurate. Should this occur, avoid risky or speculative ventures with others. Stay conscious of your surroundings, and take care when sensitive to outside influences.



Keeping life grounded is a fortunate grand Earth trine of Mercury in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus. There’s serious thinking about important concerns, with wide scope and an eye for details. The hard work and discipline of Saturn can blend well with the originality and innovation of Uranus. Imagination is stimulated, making this a fortune month for travel, encounters with new people, and to learn from those who are more experienced.

Venus, newly in Scorpio, squares Mars. People can become critical about relationships, or overthink simple things during this Virgo month.
But lucky connections and opportunities are for all, especially Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake years.

Happy new Moon,
