Overview

So, got the new year blues yet? Same old job, same old people, same old frustrations, huh? Today's ambitious Capricorn New Moon is perfect for making a break for freedom. Maybe not literally - walking out mid meeting and dropping your paperwork in the river is not necessarily the way to go. However, scanning the job pages and honing your resume wouldn't hurt.

Apply for something new, something better, something more you. Why not? Especially if you're an earth sign, Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn. Looking ahead, Friday is the perfect moment for getting your quirk on. As the Sun enters Aquarius, oddball is a sexy look.

Aries


Responsibilities may seem to weigh heavily on you today. It's tough when you feel you aren't in charge of your own time or activities -- when you're constrained by work or family duties. But that's how it goes sometimes. You have to set your own interests aside, grit your teeth and take care of business. Today may be one of those days, so try not to waste time bellyaching. Get to work!

Taurus


You seem mellow and easygoing, but you also have a competitive streak. And that streak emerges today! You've got the goods, and you're ready and willing to prove it. And best of all, you know how to do this with a sense of humor, no matter whether you're among friends, business associates or anyone else. You have a way of stepping up to the plate that brings out the best in everyone.

Gemini


It's important to take life seriously today. Of course, being serious isn't really your nature. In fact, 'serious' may not even be in your vocabulary! But if that's the case, you'll simply have to stretch yourself. If you crack a joke at a business meeting, don't be surprised if no one laughs! People appreciate a sober attitude from you right now, no matter how much you might wish they'd lighten up.

Cancer


Turn your attention toward the practical side of life today. Focus on financial or business matters. Being proactive is one of your strong points, so put this skill to use in a functional way. You can launch a project at work, or assess your budget as the first step in getting it under control. These activities may seem monotonous, but you'll find it's easy to get absorbed in them, once you begin.

Leo


Today, your competitive side comes to the fore. You want your skills to be recognized, but things may get tricky if you feel you didn't do your best. And if someone tries to steal your thunder, watch out! Go easy on yourself, and give others the benefit of the doubt. Most people are trying to get ahead right now. Do your best, and trust that your performance will speak for itself.

Virgo


That logical, practical mind of yours clicks right into gear today. Anything you're trying to accomplish is made easier by your ability to see the bottom line, or the shortest distance from point A to B. It's not that you're taking shortcuts; it's that you're cutting out excess. You're trimming the fat, so to speak. This makes it easier to see what's most important in any given situation.

Libra


Rules and routines take center stage today. This may not be your idea of fun, but at least you're sensible enough to appreciate the importance of these things in your life. So accept the limitations of time and responsibility now. That means showing up when you're expected, doing the work you're required to do, and living up to others' expectations. This actually shouldn't be tough. You hold yourself to high standards, anyway.

Scorpio


Your ambitions are clearer today than ever. You can envision the success you want to create. You feel its importance deeply, which helps you gravitate toward it almost naturally. Of course, achieving your goals takes effort, so set your project in motion. Every move you make is cautious, well planned and calculated. This is a great way to ensure that you're laying a solid foundation for the future.

Sagittarius


It's important to be dependable today. Perhaps your reputation is riding on it. Or maybe this will simply come down to living up to the expectations of someone you love. Either way, place a priority on keeping your promises and your commitments. If you tend to make impulsive moves or decisions, go against nature by thinking things through before you act. Forethought and planning are especially favored now.

Capricorn


Today is your day for getting back on track. You're filled with a renewed sense of determination. You can see the areas of your life that have gotten out of hand -- an over-stressed budget, perhaps, or a skimpy exercise regimen. Admit the issue, and take steps toward improving it. Set up a system that works for you, one that will help you get the job done right.

Aquarius


The real world calls you today. Instead of making plans for a bright, fascinating future, it's time to deal with the here and now. This might mean tending to tangible responsibilities, such as caring for relatives or putting in hard, focused effort at work. Or it might mean something deeper and more philosophical -- accepting your life as it is, rather than focusing on how you wish it could be.

Pisces


It's easier today than usual to concentrate on the task at hand. It's important to focus on the bottom line in all you do. Find the most practical, efficient and sensible way to complete a project. Trim any excess from your spending habits or your diet. Emphasize the things you know are virtuous and just, such as eating well, working hard and living up to your commitments and responsibilities.

Overview

Intelligence is sexy today. Good news for those of us who have always secretly harbored a librarian type fantasy. If you're looking for love, look first for someone who stimulates your mind - the rest will follow. In an established relationship, take time out to really talk to your lover. Discuss politics, philosophy, literature and all things weird and wonderful.

Awaken your minds, together. For the air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, Venus is truly playing matchmaker today. Looking ahead, confusion may reign on Saturday, as the Pisces Moon conjuncts Neptune. Double and triple check your facts.

Aries


Today's cosmic energy is like a breath of fresh air. You're ready to make a change of some kind. Better yet, a revolution! And you certainly have the energy and the vision to make something truly out of the ordinary happen. Your curiosity is aroused. Unusual people and experiences beckon. You don't care what you do or whom you do it with -- you just want to see, do or feel something brand-new.

Taurus


Life moves onto the cerebral plane today. Reason is emphasized more than emotion. You have no problem with logic. You're a practical, grounded type by nature, after all. But you're too warm to miss the distinct cooling off that happens under the current energy. Maybe your favorite people are suddenly aloof or unavailable, wrapped up in their own pursuits. Trust that they'll tune in again when they're ready.

Gemini


Everything you do today, you'll do for the group. You've got them in mind as you turn a creative eye toward issues that affect everyone. Best of all, you'll make important headway toward a solution. When you're willing to think outside the box, there's no telling what you might come up with! The same goes for brainstorming with other like-minded folks who can really appreciate your ideas.

Cancer


Change isn't really your thing, unless it's slow and gradual. You need plenty of warning when things in your life are shifting! But today things might take a sideways slide all on their own, and completely unexpectedly. If so, try to keep it in perspective. Most changes are improvements. Those that aren't are learning experiences at the very least. Keep a firm grip on your sense of humor!

Leo


Normally you're quite a warm person. But today an aloof mood descends. Perhaps you're preoccupied with a project or an issue you're working on in your head. Or maybe it's the rest of the world that seems reserved and unwilling to connect. Either way, use this time to make some headway on the mental plane. Your thought processes are incredibly keen. You're thinking like a scientist. Put these skills to good use.

Virgo


Working with other people is one of your skills. With your cool, practical mind, you take direction well, and you can take the lead when necessary. Today's energy taps into that side of your personality. In a group setting, you're the worker bee -- the one finding the best, most logical route toward the end goal. Just don't overlook the power of inventiveness. Sometimes pure ingenuity trumps all the reason in the world.

Libra


Today, if it's wild and wacky, you're into it. You have a yen for anything strange and unusual. That goes for people, too. You want to be wowed! Surprising ideas may occur to you. Why not test them out and see if they might fly? You're extra people-oriented now, and it's a great time to do humanitarian work. Keep the greater good in your mind through the day.

Scorpio


Get some alone time today. You have a lot on your mind. Big ideas are crowding in, and you're ready to move into the testing phase. Which will pan out, and which won't? That remains to be seen. Use your analytical skills to do some deductive reasoning beforehand. That will help you make a more accurate prediction of what will happen once you put your theories to the test.

Sagittarius


Cooperating with other people is definitely the way to go today. And you have no problem with that! If you can see the brilliance of someone's plan, you have no trouble following their lead. Even if you're just setting off into the unknown, you have faith that things will work out well in the end. And today, you're probably right. Change is in the air, and there's power in people working together.

Capricorn


People may seem a little strange today. And yet, part of you responds to this eccentric energy. Normally you're more about tradition and following societal norms. But now, there's something exciting about tuning in to that elemental rhythm and dancing to it in your very own way. At the end of the day, you might have made a great discovery. Or you might simply have had some fun. Either way is good!

Aquarius


You need a lot of space today. That could cause issues in close relationships, if the other person wants you around but you need your freedom. On the other hand, the people who know you well already know you sometimes disappear at a moment's notice! That's especially true on days like this, when you have big things on your mind. Chase those ideas down and test out those theories.

Pisces


Original ideas may occur to you today. Or maybe you'll simply be attracted to someone else's unique perspective on the world. Either way, your focus is on helping others. You want to get involved and help create positive change. That's a wonderful urge, and there are countless ways to channel your energies. Find a group or a cause and allow yourself to be swept along in the forward momentum.

Overview

Today could be something of an emotional rollercoaster, especially in love. As Mars trines Chiron, many of us are learning from past mistakes, or having to make up for past traumas. There will be tears, for sure. However, there will also be reconciliation, healing or a new sense of understanding. For the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, emotions run so high just now that you may feel distinctly wobbly, but hang on in there.

We all share the pain. Looking ahead, get creative on Sunday. A Moon-Jupiter trine is the ideal time to enjoy art, music, literature, drama or anything else which fires your imagination.

Aries


Teamwork is highlighted today. For once, you're perfectly happy to be part of the crowd instead of leading things. There's something about rubbing shoulders with other people that just feels good right now. And even though you're part of a group, you're bound to find a way to make your own, distinctive mark. You're too creative not to! Expect incredible results from joining your own ideas with others'.

Taurus


It's a great day to get a little silly. You may be the traditional type to your core, and yet everyone has an unconventional side. What's yours? Do you like to dance in your living room when no one's watching? Do you talk to yourself when you're alone, or sing in your car at the top of your lungs? Whatever it is that releases that individual voice, let it out today!

Gemini


You're in your element today. Your mind is buzzing with fascinating concepts that you can't wait to explore. For that reason alone, it's important to avoid restrictive people and environments. You need as much personal freedom as possible so you can pursue your interests! This is one of those days when a whim could end up leading you down an important and meaningful path. Leave no stone unturned!

Cancer


Turn your focus away from your own home and family today. Look outward into the world around you. What's going on in your circle of friends or your local community? It's a great day to get updated and involved. You aren't normally one for large groups of people, and today may be no different. On the other hand, connecting with your people might bring unexpected fun and inspiration.

Leo


There's a lot of room for creativity today in everything you do. It's more important than ever to make your distinctive mark. You want to show people what you're all about -- what really makes you unique. Just make sure you aren't grasping at eccentricity for its own sake. There's nothing wrong with being conventional. Most of all, there's nothing wrong with being yourself, even if you secretly worry that's a little dull.

Virgo


You tend to be a bit reserved, and today's cosmic energy makes you even more so. Connecting at a warm, emotional level with someone probably isn't in the cards right now. But you won't miss the contact. You've got a lot of interesting stuff on your mind. A bit of a separation from other people is a good thing. It gives you the space and freedom you need to organize your thoughts.

Libra


Get together with a group and make something big happen today. You have plenty of ideas for ways to change the world. And with the help of your friends or colleagues, you can really make a difference. Your natural leadership skills come to the fore now. You aren't the type to take charge by force. But when you offer a suggestion, people tend to pay attention. Lead with your charm, Libra.

Scorpio


Strange people and ideas beckon to you today. You might meet someone who challenges your usual way of thinking. Or perhaps you'll encounter a concept in an article or somewhere else that surprises you in its unconventionality. It's great to gain a new perspective on the world. Even if you're just courting difference for its own sake, at least you're stepping outside the box and giving your assumptions the boot.

Sagittarius


Mental, philosophical freedom is extra important to you today. How else are you supposed to chase down those fascinating ideas that are currently crowding your mind? It's a great time to brainstorm with someone, but only if they don't try to restrict your thoughts. Any nay-sayers can see themselves to the door, thank you very much! You're interested in possibilities. Now see whether they can become a reality.

Capricorn


You feel tuned in today. You want to get involved -- join a group and make a difference. It's a great time for it, and you certainly have great talents and skills to bring to the mix. Your leadership abilities come in handy when it's time to marshal the troops. And your insistence on managing resources carefully will help keep everyone in line. You can learn a lot from others, too.

Aquarius


You have a strong urge to change the world today for the better. There are so many areas in need of improvement! Your ideas are sure to be good ones, even if it's tough to convince others of that fact. If you know you want to help but don't know where to start, no problem. There are lots of local volunteer opportunities that are eager for people like you.

Pisces


You tend to go with your heart rather than your head. But today brings you a unique ability to think using both faculties. Your mind is sharp. More than that, you trust your perceptions. You're used to strange, abstract ideas that other people consider wacky! You know better. Just because a person or a concept seems odd, that doesn't mean it's without merit. Seeing it is your gift today.
