According to Astrology King we will be facing lots of intense bouts of emotions and dealing with things that could be seen as a ‘crisis’:
“The New Moon square Uranus brings uncertainty, anxiety and unexpected change. A buildup of nervous tension can result in unpredictable behavior, abruptness, and sudden mood swings. A strong need to assert your independence can lead to impulsiveness, rebellion, arguments, and tantrums.
The best way to handle this new moon is with open-mindedness and flexibility. Be proactive about positive change. Work out why you are feeling restless or what is causing the feeling of impending drama and chaos.
Changes in your personal appearance or attitude could lead to a brave new path that opens your life to many more possibilities and opportunities. This is also a good new moon to break bad habits or addictions. Doing so would satisfy your strong urge to break free of restriction and assert your independence.
Venus square Mars can cause relationship difficulties because of sexual or competitive tension. Anger, a lack of self-control and impulsiveness could easily exacerbate the unpredictable and shocking nature of Uranus. So if you are already an impatient or aggressive person, try not to lose your temper. If dating, take care not to lower your standards or put yourself at risk because of your impatient lust.”
