No one crushes life alone, not even a self-reliant Ram, and today, the Aquarius new moon offers some eye-opening reminders. With this fresh-start energy firing up your eleventh house of teamwork and technology, look around and see who’s pulling their weight and lending inspiration to the squad—and who’s dragging others down with their toxic attitude?

This new moon fires up your social life—and in experimental Aquarius, you could find your soul squad by dabbling in different spaces, both IRL and virtually.

You’re ready to step up to the next level of prosperity, and as a future-oriented Capricorn, you are innately strategic! Fortunately, you’ll get an extra dose of magic for any money moves starting tonight—Lunar NYE—when the magic-making Wood Dragon takes command for the rest of 2024.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Friday February 9
Ready, set, update your operating system! The year’s only new moon in Aquarius spreads some major manifesting seeds that will sprout over the coming six months. But don’t underestimate the power of this fresh-start energy, especially since tonight is Lunar New Year’s Eve, and the powerful Wood Dragon begins to soar.

But then be ready to hit the ground running as you pursue this grandiose dream.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Friday February 9
Focus, Pisces! You’ve been barreling ahead at a way-too-manic pace lately, and today’s Aquarius new moon in your restorative twelfth house will come as blessed relief. You prefer to mull ideas and really FEEL your way to an answer, and you’ll finally get that chance over the coming two weeks. While you’re meditating, journaling or taking long, bundled-up walks, consider whether it’s also time to let something or someone go. That’s the first step before the deep healing process can begin in earnest. Think of it as “toughening up your scales,” which is an appropriate metaphor as tonight’s celebration of Lunar NYE ushers in the Year of the Wood Dragon. You’ll be in demand, making it essential for you to learn when to say yes and when to say no, thank you.
