• On March 24th, the new moon in Aries is happening.
  • This new moon will help lighten your mental load and has a strong relationship vibe.
  • The new moon in Aries will affect all zodiac signs, but Aries, Libra, and Capricorn will feel it the most.

It’s no secret these are intense times. Many people are holed up at home to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, and that can make you feel understandably anxious, not to mention isolated.

That’s a huge mental load to carry, but the universe is sending some relief in the form of a new moon in the sign of Aries happening on March 24. This particular new moon will help you (and everyone else) shake off the psychological weirdness that is life in the age of coronavirus, and look toward the future, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta.

Of course, there’s a little more to it than that. Here’s what your zodiac sign can expect from the new moon in Aries.

What does the new moon in Aries mean for your sign?

Quick astronomy briefer: The moon has different phases, and a new moon happens when Earth lines up with the sun, making the moon all but invisible. There are 12 new moons a year, and each one syncs up with a different astrological sign.

This particular new moon is not only happening in Aries, but during Aries season, and it’ll be a time to think ahead and "start fresh," Page says. "It has strong planetary vibes that say, 'I’ve been cooped up enough, I need to do something fun,'" she adds.

That ~something fun~ can be as simple as taking some time at home to kick back and watch Jason Mesnick’s season of The Bachelor on Netflix or do some cool baking projects. Or, if you've really suffering from some cabin fever and feel comfortable venturing outside, go on a solo run or walk around your neighborhood (you'll be safe, so long as you practice social distancing while you're at it).

This new moon also has a strong relationship vibe, Page says. You’ll be all about finding harmony in your love life and trying really, really hard to have a good laugh with your S.O. on the reg. (After all, you're probably spending more time than usual together... might as well make the best of it.)

Single? You might "meet" someone new—dating apps are your new wingwoman—and work on building a good foundation, even if it's just over video chat. (Heck, you may change your whole approach to dating after this experience.)

Finally, you’ll be all about ditching the drama. There’s enough of it going on in the world RN—you have no interest in taking part. Instead, focus on virtually reaching out to old friends and family you might not have seen or talked to in a while and relishing the joy in those simple moments.

The new moon will affect all zodiac signs, but Aries, Libra, and Capricorn will feel it the most, Page says.

How will the new moon in Aries impact the rest of your year?

You’ll move forward from the new moon with a brighter, lighter mindset. Sure, things are a little uncertain now, but it won’t be this way forever (promise). Also, you can only control so much, and accepting that will go a long way toward helping you mentally ride this out.

On the relationship front, you’ll find yourself reconnecting with your S.O., which will only help you two come out stronger on the other side. And hey, if you can find a way to have some fun together (think: dance parties, new recipes, board games, puzzles) during this wild ride, even better.

Sure, trying to weed out drama is always a good thing. But actually being able to achieve it in your life will feel so freaking good—and motivate you to keep those good vibes going well into the future.

When is the next new moon?

The next new moon is on April 23 in the sign of Taurus. At this time, you’ll crave a lil’ more stability in your life.

Until then, enjoy having a lighter mindset. Everyone could use it right now.
