Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The New Moon today occurs in your sign and brings a whole new orientation, a blast of personal energy, and a sense that you’re getting going, dear Aries. It’s time to present yourself in ways that serve you best, and you have all of the power to make meaningful changes. The month is not without its challenges, and in fact, you’re likely to inspire some opposition and encounter some hindrances and delays. You can be at your most impulsive now, and while you possess tremendous energy, you need to weigh all sides of a situation before pushing forward. Pace yourself and avoid rushing things, keeping in mind, too, that this is a personally powerful time. Work on self-improvement now, and as you do, you can find yourself filling up with new ideas and hope. You can also be filling up with conviction and ambition as the Moon harmonizes with faithful Jupiter. Your belief in yourself and your endeavors carries you far.
With the New Moon occurring today, dear Taurus, observe and remain alert, but avoid starting something entirely new just yet. This New Moon occurs in your soul sector, marking a period of review, letting go, seeking closure, and recharging your batteries ahead of you. The urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. New energy is with you for dealing with matters of the past. In the weeks ahead, you may need to put some things behind you or put some things to rest, and this New Moon highlights this need. You are more ambitious and interested in bettering yourself, so that pressures experienced today tend to be your own, although quite enjoyable and useful. Time spent working in relative solitude can be particularly fruitful. You require a little more time to reflect, meditate, and detox on an emotional level. Your intuition is working powerfully now.
The New Moon today brings the chance to start fresh socially or with a particular friend, dear Gemini, or it serves to renew your interest in pursuing a specific happiness goal. With this lunation occurring in your sector of friends, teamwork, group associations, and ideals, these are the areas that may get a revamping in the days ahead. Emotional honesty, sharing your feelings with friends, and willingness to recognize others as integral to your success and fulfillment – all of these things will help improve existing friendships and possibly bring you new allies. You might choose to become more actively involved in your community, or to network and share some of yourself with associates. You’re likely to enjoy a smooth flow of expression, and you find it natural to dream up exciting plans for the future. Anything that relieves stress will be appropriate now, and in fact, quite easy to naturally find.
The New Moon today brings a renewal of professional steam and the ability to overcome stumbling blocks in your career, dear Cancer, although you’ll need some patience to get all of this going. You’re likely to reach higher in the coming weeks. This lunation brings extra power and fresh energy to your professional goals, your career itself, your life-path goals, or to your standing or reputation. It’s the most public time of the year for you — a time when others notice you for your accomplishments. Others’ vision of who you are does affect your life, and this can be an excellent time to make an impact, dispel rumors, or begin a new business project. There may be some hurdles to clear, but nothing you can’t handle. Leadership qualities or abilities are prominent now, and your increased awareness of your reputation can motivate you to align your goals more closely to what you believe, serving as a reminder that you are part of a larger system, and an integral part, too.
With today’s New Moon, dear Leo, this is a time for a change of routine, whether it’s through travel, exploring new interests, or more simply, finding more time to explore the world beyond your ordinary activities. This lunation may act as a charge, sending you in a new direction. In the weeks ahead, you may be initiating new projects or activities that expand your mind, feed your spirit for adventure, and stretch your imagination. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines in your life. The chance to expand your world is with you now, and you can feel very confident about finding ways to enlarge your scope now and going forward.
With today’s New Moon occurring in your solar eighth house, dear Virgo, the days ahead are favorable for starting a financial plan, taking out a loan or consolidating, paying off debt, and pouring extra energy into a pet project or research. Taking charge of the areas of life where you feel unhealthily dependent on others comes naturally now and in the coming weeks. This lunation might also (or instead) stir up the desire for emotional intimacy and closeness with others, and this can propel you into more creative relating patterns, but it might also stimulate your inner frustrations if current relationships are not satisfying your deeper needs. Seek out passion, not just experience for more emotional fulfillment. Support from family is forthcoming. Strategies for long-term ventures are sound. The emphasis is on emotions, close ties, dreams, and your inner world now, and you’re making nice improvements.
You possess more courage than usual to break down walls between you and others now with a New Moon occurring in your partnership sector today, dear Libra. This lunation brings you the chance to improve or attract close partnerships over the coming weeks. Honoring others in your life seems the main route to fulfillment and success for you these days. If partnering is not on your agenda, then this New Moon is about your relationship with others on a one-to-one level and how you go about balancing your needs with those of another. This may also be a time for gaining a new perspective on your life through the eyes of someone else. It can be an excellent time for teaming or pairing up and coming up with a perfect idea. Putting in extra effort into your projects or relationships is satisfying. Current energies are very supportive of compromises, negotiations, and breathing new life into friendships.
The New Moon today helps clear the path for new beginnings related to self-care, work, and wellness, dear Scorpio. It’s an excellent time for embarking on new or improved projects along these lines. This can be about putting the limitations of the past behind you to make way for the new. Health and wellness programs, as well as resolutions for better organizing your daily life, launched in the coming days have a strong chance of surviving. Job offers may arise in the coming weeks, or you could have new priorities and tasks to manage. New directions are likely with current projects. You can experience motivating prompts toward new and improved conditions. Do watch for impulsiveness and impatience. However, you’re carrying yourself in such a way that you naturally attract the right resources to you now. Positive feedback for your work or rapport with associates can figure strongly now.
Creativity peaks for you with a New Moon occurring in your sector of joy today, dear Sagittarius, and you can be anxious to start fresh. Now and in the coming days, you can have the chance to find new and exciting ways of expressing yourself in uniquely creative ways, or through rewarding pastimes or a romantic relationship. You’ll be happily busy enjoying yourself over the next while, and your powers of attraction are sure to skyrocket during this cycle. This lunation highlights a very happy, creative, and romantic area of your chart, making the next couple of weeks good for starting new hobbies, creative activities, and even love relationships. This is a time for following your heart. Enthusiasm and motivation are on the rise, and this is exciting! You are exuding a positive, upbeat, and pleasant aura now.
Today’s New Moon begins a cycle in which dynamic energy is brought to your domestic world, dear Capricorn. If you want to make changes on the home front, whether it’s literally in your home or with your domestic routines, or about family relationships–or even about your relationship with your inner self–this is the cycle for you. The improvements you make, of course, will affect all areas of your life in some way, as the sector of your chart that’s activated now is all about your roots and getting more comfortable. This is an excellent time for making long-range plans, as well. Support comes from behind the scenes, and you’re seeking, making room for, and finding emotional replenishment. New situations and settings are less important to you than exploring new feelings and ideas today.
The New Moon today can motivate you to take on new studies or a special-interest project, dear Aquarius, or it can bring on a more connected, busier daily life. Perhaps renewing an old plan or project can be in order now–the idea is that you’re starting fresh. There can certainly be a lot coming in, many things to do, and a generally quick pace. This New Moon occurs in your communications and learning sector, launching a cycle that places added emphasis in your life on communication skills, learning, and daily interactions and contacts. You’re better able to establish a mental rapport with others. Now and the next couple of weeks are strong for beginning new courses, writing projects, and even friendships. Siblings and neighbors may assume more importance in your life during this cycle. Making contact with interesting people is also likely. Sharing your expertise or lending a hand can be beneficial. You’re curious, engaged, and alert. It’s a good time for supportive friendships or collaborations in general.
There can be a fresh start involving money, finances, business, and career in the days following today’s New Moon, dear Pisces. New energy is with you for creating success, and ambition increases, but don’t jump into the first project you see. You should embrace your increased faith, but do take solid steps to make sure you’re grounded as well. This lunation can serve as a prompt toward improved management of your practical affairs. It’s time to take charge of your finances, and to make meaningful, long-lasting changes to your earnings and your spending habits. You’re motivated to make your life secure and comfortable. The coming weeks are strong for taking charge of your finances, asking for a raise, and even making purchases, as long as they’re researched. Making peace with the past helps you clarify your ambitions, and you may be doing some thinking along those lines. As you contribute and share, you naturally draw resources your way.
