Today we replace the hazy film reel of the Pisces new moon with a bright, bold, and energetic moon in Aries. At midnight EST, the moon forms a conjunction with both Chiron and the North Node at 17°, bringing fiery passion and daring attitude.

This morning you will feel driven not only by emotion but divine guidance, so take comfort in the knowledge that you are moving in the direction of your karmic path. Your energy, which may have waned during the new moon, will come back with a vengeance, making this an excellent day to get things done. By 8:29 PM, when the moon moves into Taurus, you’ll feel more inclined to wind down and indulge in some self-care.

Yesterday one very significant transit occurred: Venus moved from Aquarius, where it has been sharing a close conjunction with Mars for the past several weeks, into the dreamier and more mystical territory of Pisces.

Traditionally, Venus does remarkably well in Pisces, providing a wealth of opportunities for us to create beautiful works of art and sink into lush romantic daydreams. While the darker side of Pisces represents illusion and deception, and it is certainly possible that some will find themselves enraptured by a charismatic pathological liar. Be wary of online dating; catfishing, filtering, AI, and fraud are going to become more common under this transit.

On the other hand, artists—especially musicians—will find this energy very useful for creating emotionally expressive works that are simultaneously raw and melodic. If you’re not a creator but an appreciator, lose yourself in the worlds of cinema, music, and visual art while Venus occupies Pisces. Plan to go visit a museum or watch an avant-garde French film. This energy gives you permission to be pretentious.

How can you expect today to unravel according to your rising sign? Read on for the details.
