Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
This is a day for reflection rather than decisive action, dear Aries. The New Moon occurring today initiates a fresh start for happiness goals, networking, and friendship. The Sun recently moved into your social sector, and since then, you may have been thinking about new projects, entertaining new ideas, and connecting with friends. Today’s New Moon supplies you with the motivation to move forward with plans. The weeks ahead are good for making contacts, reaching out to others, connecting with your higher aspirations, and experimenting with new ideas. The period ahead is an innovative, busy one. A healthy level of detachment from personal concerns is good for you now. It’s a good time for strengthening ties in a group project/activity and nurturing goodwill, although it’s best to wait a few days to get everything going.
Today’s New Moon stimulates a new beginning on a career or life path level for you, dear Taurus. The weeks ahead are excellent for taking charge of your reputation, responsibilities, and business or career plans, with improvements in mind. This can be an ambitious time of year for you! The desire or need to fulfill your responsibilities is strong now. You’re clearer about putting something behind you so that you can begin fresh. In the coming week, you might begin a new business project or draw up new long-term plans, and you feel motivated to move your business affairs forward. Don’t be surprised if job offers come your way, or this is a time for pursuing new or redefined goals related to your life path. It’s undoubtedly the time of year for paying a little more attention to outside markers, and this can be very useful, but don’t forget to listen to your own heart.
Today’s New Moon occurs in your sector of adventure and spirit, dear Gemini, and in favorable relationship to your sign. It serves as a nudge toward acting on your need for more spirited–and less routine–living. In the coming weeks, new initiatives can be set in motion that widen your experience and deepen your understanding of your life’s purpose. You have more courage to pursue your dreams, and opportunities to do so are likely to emerge. Routines are good for you, but you are now encouraged to step outside of the usual routine from time to time to feed your spirit for life experience. There can be significant educational or travel plans made in the coming weeks. It’s a powerful time for pushing forward with a special project, publication, studies, or personal plans. While last month may have been about going deep, now you’re going wide, and you can feel particularly motivated.
Today’s New Moon is likely to pull your mind away from current concerns toward more empowering ones, dear Cancer. With this fresh start, you’re sure to gain incredible insight into which aspects of yourself you need to transform so that you can move forward, feeling more confident. Handling debts or shared resources more efficiently may be in order, and you have decent support and motivation for this in the coming weeks. This lunation can also stir up your desire for emotional intimacy, but it’s not about surface harmony in relationships. Rather, it’s about the deeper issues and levels of interaction. You may want to take things to a new level or to make profound and lasting changes and improvements. This is a strong time of year for making important lifestyle changes, and it’s also a generally good time to take charge of your finances. If you need some support, you’ll find that people and perhaps institutions, if applicable, are more willing to offer it in the next week.
Today’s New Moon stimulates a confident, in-charge attitude towards your relationships, dear Leo, and can pull up the desire/need for a fresh start. Cooperating or merging with others can be in focus now. The weeks ahead are exceptional for making relationships work and for enhancing or attracting a partnership. This lunation can signal changes in your relationships and new energy for finding more balance and harmony in your life. Negotiations and one-to-one relationships are highlighted over the coming weeks, and it is a favorable time to begin new relationships or to redefine or re-energize existing ones. Issues of sharing and partnership come to the fore. This is a strong cycle for making contacts, for coming to agreements, and for making announcements. It’s also a fine time for improving your ability to relate to others on a one-to-one basis. Still, today’s energies are strong for all things career and work. Ideas are innovative and powerful along these lines. Your mind is open to new thinking.
Today’s New Moon nudges you toward taking charge of your daily routines, dear Virgo. The coming weeks will be strong for focusing on your health and self-care or self-improvement programs, as well as for tidying your life in small yet significant ways. You’ll find the motivation or necessity to start new work projects, health or fitness routines, helping out others, organizing your working environment, or for scheduling medical checkups. Aim to get the plan right in the next few days before pushing forward, keeping in mind that it’s better to feel and observe before everything comes together. Job offers may arise in the coming weeks, or you could have new priorities and tasks to manage. In some way, you’ll be starting fresh and new. Today, it’s a good idea to think about what needs to go, even if it’s an intangible such as an expectation, so that you can enjoy your life more fully in the areas of service, daily routines, healthy living, work, and contribution.
Today’s New Moon pulls your attention to your need to express yourself and be heard, dear Libra. In the coming weeks, you’ll have increased energy and confidence on your side to find channels for these desires. New hobbies, entertainment choices, or even a romance can be in the works. This lunation might open doors for you on romantic and creative levels, and presents you with the motivation to start new or renew past hobbies, find new avenues for entertainment and creative expression, and, for some of you, a fresh start in your romantic life. It’s time to improve the fun, entertainment, leisure, and creativity elements of your life. The goal now is to follow your heart more often, and less so a schedule or the crowd. While there is always some impulsiveness at the time of a New Moon, and this one is particularly erratic, a little jolt may be what you need to make meaningful changes.
Today’s New Moon brings a strong focus on home and family now and in the coming weeks, dear Scorpio. It’s an ideal time for considering long-term security and for improving home and family life. Domestic matters have been assuming more importance in your life recently, and with this New Moon, you’ll soon have the energy and motivation to take charge. The coming week is a strong one for making future-securing plans as well as renovations or reorganizing in the home and family activities. It’s a time for making meaningful changes to enhance your current living conditions/arrangements, home matters, your domestic or personal life, and a sense of safety. Avoid acting on impulse, and instead, focus on learning about your true needs.
New directions are in the works with today’s New Moon occurring in your solar third house, dear Sagittarius. Expect everyday affairs to take up quite a bit of your time in the coming weeks, mostly in a pleasant way! Learning, connecting, and sharing ideas can be fantastic, leading to exciting opportunities. A major new project or interest can begin for you in the coming week. This lunation can serve to stir you intellectually and stimulate your curiosity. It also brings with it somewhat restless energy, as you are now seeking more variety in your life, and this need can seem to come on suddenly. You’re also especially communicative, and reaching out and connecting with others can be helpful and a learning experience. New writing projects, friendships, courses, transportation opportunities, and relationships with siblings and neighbors can be in the spotlight. For some of you, there could be a disruption in transportation or communications that brings about the need to do things differently. While the energy of the New Moon is exciting and fresh, it’s best to ease into new beginnings.
Today’s New Moon brings dynamic and empowering energy for taking care of your resources, dear Capricorn. The period ahead is excellent for managing your money and things, as well as for investing in yourself! This lunation may bring a pay raise or business advance, or it can fuel your enthusiasm and drive to take charge of matters of security, including finances and other areas of life that help you feel stable, supported, and secure. Opportunities to better your business or to get yourself back on a more productive schedule should be taken now and in the coming weeks. You become more aware of your resources, both tangible and intangible, including your natural talents. Make a point of spending more time connecting with nature, enjoying the world of the five senses, and increasing feelings of comfort and security. If you feel your earnings are not properly reflecting your effort or value, this can be a time to make plans to change this.
Today’s New Moon occurs in your sign, dear Aquarius, launching a cycle of increased personal power, but it can come from a temporary feeling of not being recognized. Now’s the time to think of the things you want to improve in your life, especially related to your personal presentation and your attitude towards new beginnings. You could find yourself itching to do something new or to express yourself in different ways in the days and weeks ahead, but you may not know what it is you want to express or how you’re going to go about it just yet. Going forward, you have tremendous support for making changes that reflect your personal needs. Self-limiting attitudes need to be left behind you! Gather your thoughts and your energies today. In the weeks ahead, you may be acting on feelings that you’ve recently embraced and acknowledged. Today is for setting your intentions for the year ahead, and it’s one of the very best times of the year to consider making personal changes that empower you.
Today’s New Moon occurs in the twelfth house of your solar chart, dear Pisces–a sector that rules closure, endings, privacy, and new understanding. The days and weeks ahead are for recognizing the limitations of specific projects or past efforts, and for understanding what needs to go so that you can move forward lighter and happier. Listen attentively to your intuition and your dreams, as they are giving you the clearest messages right now. It’s time to make plans to catch up on much-needed rest, review, and healing. This can be a time of giving back, settling karmic debts, letting go, and perhaps some withdrawal. You’re ready for a change from the inside out. The goal now is spiritual renewal and refreshment. Attitudes and projects or circumstances that have run their course should be put behind you, but first you need to go within in order to discover what these are.
