Intro: The new moon in Aquarius, at 19 degrees, arrives on February 8, 2016, to add a boost of creative energy to the current planetary transits. If you’re wondering what the fuss is about, it’s because new moons often indicate new beginnings, events, and life cycles. Depending on the information available in your natal chart, this can also indicate opportunities for love.

Note: This new moon is encouraged by a favorable aspect to Uranus (Aquarius’ ruler) in Aries, and some tension from Mars in Scorpio, creating an urgent desire to charge forward with our ideas and actions. The path forward will be a combination of these ideas and actions, guided by wisdom and expansion of knowledge or vision, as indicated by the new moon’s aspects to Jupiter and the North Node in meticulous Virgo. With Virgo in the mix of things, a meticulous attention to detail can be key that turns the lock.

Every sign will feel the effects of this new moon. If your birthday falls between February 4th and February 12th, you are likely to feel its beneficial influence more so than others. The same applies if you have your Sun, Moon, Rising sign, personal planets or angles from 14 to 24 degrees in Aquarius, Libra, or Gemini.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Get ready to network like a pro and expand your circle of influence! This new moon heralds success in making significant new contacts in your social sector.

You could meet an important person who’ll be an important connection for work or business. Also, there’s a strong indicator for becoming a leader of a group, initiating an innovative idea for a group or social network that you could sell, eventually, to an interested buyer or get venture capital and investment funding for.

The key indicators seem to be ideas that improve work or work conditions or simplify daily tasks. Alternatively, ideas related to health, fitness, wellness, and nutrition also hold plenty of promise for you. Either way, your attention to detail will be integral to ensuring your idea receives positive feedback.

Venus in your public and career sector makes a harmonious connection to Jupiter and increases your appeal at work and with the public – consider asking for a raise or a promotion because this influence shows higher-ups will be open to hearing what you have to say.

If you’re single, dating or interested in meeting someone, it’s a great time to get out there and meet people! Make a move by creating or renewing your online dating profile! Here’s a tip: exfoliate, detoxify, and brighten your skin with a Glow & Go Peel DIY facial, then take profile pictures that capture the essence of who you are. Remember to add a spark of Aries energy for fabulous first impressions!

If you’re thinking,“What’s a girl to wear while she’s on the lookout for Mr. Right?” Don’t panic – here’s an amazing selection for you. Remember, confidence is your best accessory. Given the current planetary alignments, your joie de vivre will shine through to get the attention of a special someone.

Guess what? It’s okay if you decide you would rather skip the online dating route in favor of a more traditional approach, or if you simply want to maximize all the options available to you (online and offline). I say all of the above because no matter what option you choose, cupid’s coming your way this month! When good fortune Jupiter aligns harmoniously with love planet Venus, the sky’s the limit – literally.

There’s a strong possibility for making a love connection as you go about your day, performing work-related tasks, or during the course of your health and fitness activities e.g. while shopping for healthy/organic produce, at the doctor’s, the gym/jogging. Here’s an amazing selection of podcasts to listen to as you work out. With choices ranging from suspense, comedy, education, and advice to motivation, you’ll find plenty to occupy you during your morning commute. Ditto for when you need some inspiration or want to take a break from sorting out the intricate business and networking details mentioned above.

If you are married or in a relationship, participating in activities hold a lot of promise! Have fun trying new things, meeting new people or socializing with your network of friends. If you own a business with your significant other, consider pitching a business idea à la Shark Tank TV Show on ABC, or promoting your business to the public e.g. sales and promotions.

Overall, the energy of this new moon is great for catching up on fun memories and creating new ones together!

P.S: Dear Aries, for your birthday, here’s your birthday gift & love-life horoscope from me. Enjoy!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This new moon could bring a change in status, public image or a sudden career opportunity, seemingly out of the blue! This opportunity could be located a distance away from where you live, thus some travel is indicated. On the other hand, this new opportunity could be quite different from what you expect e.g. working unusual hours or going from an a.m. shift to a p.m. shift. It seems as though some juggling will be required in a relationship.

There could be some surprising assistance from a source (friend, network circle?), that changes the trajectory in a relationship, legal proceedings or matters relating to children. Venus in your opportunities sector connects with Jupiter and you start to feel more optimistic about romance, children or your ability to express yourself beautifully.

International/overseas connections, long distance travel, public relations, education, publishing and other creative outlets hold a lot of potential for you – there’s also a strong possibility for romance here!

Single, dating or looking for love? With Venus perfectly angled to Jupiter in your romance sector, you, dear Taurus, of all the signs have absolutely fantastic opportunities to find love! Circulate, go out and meet people. With so many beaus and belles to choose from, and this new moon could be the start of something great in your love-life!
