Do you live in a city? If you do, and there's a lot of lights on outside at night, that drowns out the stars. The problem is known as light pollution and astronomers are always complaining about it. Get away from cities and towns to somewhere where it really is DARK at night, and you'll see plenty. So did you move from a small place to a big place? That would explain it.
Other reasons could be if there is more air pollution now where you are, or where you live now is frequently cloudy. I live in London, England and it's cloudy most of the time, which is why nobody with any sense builds big telescopes in this country! There used to be some at the Royal Greenwich Observatory, then as the city expanded, the "seeing" became hopeless and the telescopes were moved out to the country, and now they're up a mountain in the Canary Islands. Mountains are good - you're above most of everything that could block the view. The ultimate is to put the telescope in space, like the Hubble Space Telescope.
The first time I really saw the night sky properly was going camping somewhere remote (it was near a tiny village in rural France). The guy I was sharing a tent with and I both stuck our heads out of the door - with pillows to stop our heads getting dirty - and looked up. Flat on your back in your sleeping bag, like us, is THE best way to do it. No cricking your neck to be able to look up, it's totally comfortable, and wait for 15-20 minutes so your eyes get really used to the dark and open up wide. And on a cloud-free night, the view is amazing.
It's the best way to see meteors. Spend some time at this and you will be incredibly unlucky not to see at least one. Suddenly there's a streak across the sky and just as suddenly, it's gone.
That's what happened. There is light pollution or something else is blocking the view.
Now whoever thumbed this down, explain why I'm wrong.
