Today and tomorrow are strong for family activities, home life, and endeavors that remind you of the need for comfort and familiarity, dear Aries. This can be a nice change after busy days. Even so, there is great energy with you today for creative vision. You can more easily envision what you want to create, and you can feel very inspired and motivated as a result. It’s a good day for setting goals and thinking about the future. Plans may not be meticulous and detail-oriented now, but they’re broad and intelligent.
Emotional satisfaction today and tomorrow tends to come from keeping yourself busy, mental stimulation, reaching out and connecting with others, and learning new things, dear Taurus. This may not be the best day for concentration, as you’re so curious that it’s very easy to get distracted, but right now you seem to need the change, movement, and variety involved. There is one area that grabs your attention more than others, and that is family or home matters, as you can be feeling quite inspired as you make plans for the future in these areas.
In some ways, you are riding on the energy of the New Moon in your sign that occurred yesterday, dear Gemini. You can be feeling especially alive, vital, and inspired. Your ideas right now may very well be golden, and you seem to have the cooperation and support of important people in your life. Even so, there is a stronger emotional desire to settle in just for now with the Moon in your resources sector nudging your attention towards some of the more practical details of your recent plans.
The Moon is in your sign all day today and tomorrow, dear Cancer, and this brings your emotions out of hiding and into the light. You’re a little more vulnerable emotionally, as you crave a feeling of connectedness with others. Put your stamp on the day as you begin a new lunar cycle. Today, plans may come together with finances, work, or other practical matters. Good energy is with you for identifying redundancies in spending as well.
The Moon in your privacy sector all day today and tomorrow suggests some need for down time or solitude, dear Leo. This is a strong day for creative pursuits, so that tuning out distractions is even more productive. Plans seem to be coming together, and you’re especially able to see the bigger picture and the larger design. You might also have a strong sense that you have the support of friends or a team, even if you are taking more time to yourself. It’s a fine time to help guide others.
Your need to feel connected to a group, friend, or a cause is strong today and tomorrow, dear Virgo, but a lot is going on in your domestic and personal life. You are able to draw upon your intuition in order to draw up plans, frameworks, or designs, and you might be especially creative when it comes to domestic affairs, although all areas of life can benefit from your ideas and insight now. You might be supporting others with helpful advice, logic, and knowledge, and thoroughly enjoying the process.
You are more emotionally invested in your career, responsibilities, or reputation today and tomorrow, dear Libra, and this can either boost or undermine your performance, depending on how secure you’re feeling today. Try not to let fear of failure interfere with setting goals. There is strong energy for teaming up with a friend or group and for networking, communicating and sharing ideas, and learning today. This is a better day for seeing the broader plans than it is for filling in the details. You have a vision today, and this can be exciting.
The Moon in your idealistic ninth house today and tomorrow inspires you to think in bigger terms, dream, and make plans. Fortunately, there is good energy for seeing the bigger picture now, and plans seem to fall into place in your mind. While your idealism is emphasized today, you can also be quite practical, and your optimism now motivates you even further. People in high places may be looking on you especially favorably today. You seem to have their support.
Your wisdom and intelligence are plainly seen today, dear Sagittarius, and you might have the chance to apply yourself to an important project. You are more confident about your talents and ideas, and you can be quite determined to put them into action. The only danger here is that you may take on a little too much, which sometimes happens when you’re feeling especially enthusiastic. You are even shrewder than usual today, and your powers of observation are strong.
With so much focus on the details of your life these days, dear Capricorn, today’s broader vision can be felt as a wonderful release. You are more able to see the bigger picture, particularly when it comes to the connection between mind and body, patterns of behavior, and recent life experiences. You can come to better conclusions now. Self-understanding improves as you pan out a little and focus less on the smaller problems and more on your life as a whole. Today and tomorrow, the Moon moves through your solar seventh house, making it a generally good time for socializing, recognizing your need for others, and in business, making deals and sales.
There has been quite a strong focus on getting your creative and playful needs met recently, dear Aquarius, and while this will continue for a while longer, your emotional focus today and tomorrow tends to be on more practical matters. The practical details of your life, the routines that keep you active and healthy, and your work or services you provide are in need of your attention. Emotionally, you’re invested in these things more than usual. Even so, this can also be a strong time for collaborating with others and making very effective plans. Partnering up can be very productive now.
Today and tomorrow, the Moon harmonizes with your own sign, dear Pisces, providing gentle support for your emotions and easier channels for expressing them. It’s a good day for creating, sharing, and enjoying yourself. There is also strong energy with you for work and health matters, as plans seem to be coming together at the very least in your mind. You are more able to see both the details and the bigger vision so that your judgment is more sound than on a regular day. Perhaps more importantly, you have more faith in your ideas, designs, and plans.

LUNAR PHASE: NEW MOON
Moon 0 to 45 degrees ahead of the Sun.
This is an energetic, impulsive, and subjective period of time. We are looking for new projects and opportunities.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on June 17th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
