v79CAr3uCf5xwZt7i2SE2m-1200-80Today’s New Moon (7:41 PM PDT 26° Leo) provides a tremendous boost of confidence. We begin to believe that just the right trick will allow things to fall into place. We feel assured that our will power will take us over the finish line. Nonetheless, Mars is slowing down in a very long square to Saturn, producing intense contradictions to be resolved and processed over the next few months. Although we may be ready to put the pedal to the metal, we’ll keep hitting the brakes. Essentially, this powerful energy must be carefully controlled and the stop-start nature of this atmosphere may become extremely uncomfortable. The New Moon’s quincunx to Saturn requires determined self-discipline and accommodation for rules, regulations, and restrictions. As well, the Leo-Capricorn interaction makes our presentation — how we appear to others — painfully important to sustaining our confidence levels.

We have a void-of-course moon in Leo today that is likely to make early risers of us, because we’ll feel connected to the sun and its vitality. A warm and glowing vibe will blanket the morning, creating an easy, breezy atmosphere. A sense of personal joy should be easy to tap into.

A sextile between Uranus and Venus could lead to pleasant surprises in the love department, so be sure to keep an open heart. As you roll into the evening you’ll feel inclined to use your voice and speak up about the things you feel passionate about.

However, a moon-Saturn quincunx warns against making promises or agreements that may be difficult to fulfill. On the flip side of that, take what others say or promise with a grain of salt because you might have trouble holding them to it later.

Your ego will tell you that you’re capable of anything tonight, and for the most part you will be! However, Saturn is looking over your shoulder and asking if you’re willing to put in the work to accomplish your goals and fight for your dreams. New moons tend to bring a great deal of energy with them. Use tonight’s new moon energy to set your intentions around meeting your personal goals. Make a vow to yourself that you’ll work hard for the things you want.
