Zodiac

For today's love horoscope by zodiac sign, resident astrologer, and YourTango's Senior Editor, Aria Gmitter shares how current astrological events affect you on October 16.

The New Moon aligns with the Sun today in the eighth solar house.

Situated opposite of retrograde Mars, it forces us to look within.

This New Moon brings intense energy, and it's unlike most we will experience in our lifetime.

Both the Moon and Sun are challenged by the stellium in Capricorn.

Saturn, who judges and restricts options, Pluto, who prompts change, and lucky Jupiter who is keeping an eye out for us all.

This New Moon is ideal for self-analysis, so review your love life and see what themes are manifesting lately.

Review Chiron, which is also in Aries, and has been interacting with Mars and the Sun all month.

Don't stew or beat yourself up over what has hurt you in the past.

See how this can motivate you to make better relationship choices when it comes to love now and in the future.
