Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
This is a good week for focusing on the details rather than the bigger picture, dear Aries, particularly if you are tying up loose ends on a project. Today’s New Moon, however, helps nudge you forward and signals busy weeks ahead. You’re motivated to make valuable, happy connections and contacts, learn new things, improve your skills, or come up with new and motivating ideas. You more readily reach out to others, and as you do, opportunities and benefits are likely to emerge. You can do exceptionally well with studies, new interests, writing, projects, or making friends. The things you’re learning and sharing can be refreshing to your spirit.
Your calm mentality and organizational skills are especially in demand today and this week, dear Taurus. As well today, the New Moon occurs in your resources sector–an area of your chart that holds dominion over money, talents, comfort, and security. New Moons can bring about new beginnings or slate-clearing events that prompt a new attitude or approach to certain areas of your life, making this a good time for resolutions related to business, finances, and boosting your sense of security. The weeks ahead are particularly suitable for taking care of your money and valuables. If you’re looking to earn more, this can be a time to seek out new channels. You can quite effectively take charge of your practical affairs at this time. As well, your natural talents are likely to be in demand, and you have a strong sense for using them resourcefully and to your advantage.
A personal new beginning or a sense that you have a new lease on life is likely now with a New Moon occurring in your sign, dear Gemini. This is a time of confidence boosts, changing the way you greet the world if this can benefit you, and taking charge of your life in crucial ways. You are more noticeable and dynamic than usual. Make plans to pay more attention to your own needs and happiness during this period when some healthy self-focus is especially appropriate. Today is also suitable for drawing upon experience and wisdom and applying to them to tasks at hand. It’s a great time to notice and handle details. Reorganize or sort through something that requires concentration. Dealing with responsibilities rather than hiding from them can, in fact, be quite satisfying now.
Today is good for communications projects, publishing, and smart thinking, dear Cancer. It may be a great time to run business ideas by friends. Today’s New Moon occurs in your soul sector, and you have a blast of new energy with you for dealing with the past or private matters, letting go of things you no longer need, and attending to your mental and emotional wellness. The weeks ahead are good for purging, healing, and clearing the decks for next month’s New Moon that will occur in your sign and bring about a new personal beginning. It’s time for winding-down activities and more time to yourself for personal reflection.
This morning’s New Moon brings a boost of energy to your friendships, group associations, or humanitarian goals, dear Leo. It can also be about new beginnings related to your pursuit of happiness. New friendships are one of the most noticeable results of this lunation, but other notable events include breathing new life into existing connections or arriving at new goals, dreams, and plans to look forward to and enjoy. You’re looking at people and your “place” with them in a new light. You might also discover a new interest or revive a project that’s dear to your heart in the coming weeks.
Work and problem-solving are highly favored today, dear Virgo, and a friend or partner might come through for you now. The headline of the day, however, is the New Moon that occurs at the top of your solar chart. This lunation stimulates forward-looking, take-charge energy related to your professional or public life, reputation, or responsibilities, and life path goals. There may be new obligations, recognition, or a new position or project. It can be a time of coming into the limelight in some manner, or you’ll find others are noticing you for your performance and actions. There can be the need to follow the rules or straighten out an area of your life in the coming weeks
You are in the right frame of mind for taking care of business today, dear Libra, and you can be quite excited about finding solutions to problems. As well, today’s New Moon serves as a pleasant and gently motivating influence. New initiatives that deepen your understanding of your life’s purpose and that renew your spirit can be set in motion in the coming weeks. Activities and experiences that take you out of your routine can be particularly refreshing. Publishing, sharing ideas, learning new things, and visiting new places can be particularly favorable, leading to new beginnings. For some, this can be a time for new interests or studies, and for others, travel or adventure can be in the cards.
The New Moon today is a particularly motivating one, dear Scorpio, and can open doors for you when it comes to following a passion. It can stir up a keen interest in learning about your own needs, motivations, and deeper desires, and it might empower you to make significant lifestyle or psychological changes. You may be seeking more passion and intensity in a relationship or with a project. It can be a time for recognizing your inner strength and feeling more capable of bringing needed changes to your life. You might want to take charge of a matter in which you feel indebted to someone or something. Ths New Moon is also useful for getting started on organizing your financial affairs. Keep in mind that’s best to feel the energy of the New Moon and intuit your next move, and then wait a few days to put plans into motion. Also today, working towards a specific goal and in a step-by-step fashion gets the right results.
There is fabulous energy with you for work and health improvement today, dear Sagittarius. You can get to the very root of a problem. This morning’s New Moon pulls your attention to your relationships or the need for collaboration. There can be a significant restart, new start, or new beginning in the relationship department. Now and the coming weeks are excellent for improving relationships, striking up deals, negotiating, and connecting. You might benefit from counseling or pairing up with someone to accomplish a goal. Alternatively, you may come to meaningful conclusions about your relationship needs through the events of this time in your life. It’s also a fine time for seeing yourself through others’ eyes, taking steps to improve your connections with others, and finding ways to bring more balance, harmony, and beauty into your life, in general.
This morning’s New Moon brings take-charge, forward-looking energy to your work, services, health, and habits, dear Capricorn, making the coming weeks ideal for launching new work projects and personal health or fitness programs. Whether you’re starting all-new projects or reviving or ramping up old ones, the desire to take better care of yourself or to do your personal best is prominent. Circumstances may be such that you take more pride in your work or your attention to personal wellness. Improving daily routines can be a big focus for many of you now, and some will get job offers or new responsibilities that change your direction. Today, you can make good headway in a creative or communications project. You are more focused and willing to put in the effort necessary to make progress.
Energy is strong for practical things and activities around the house or with family today, dear Aquarius. Approaching things patiently and methodically can help you resolve problems and reduce stress to boot. This morning’s New Moon, however, can get your creative juices flowing, making the weeks ahead superb for expressing your feelings, creating, romancing, enjoying, and entertaining. There can be opening doors, new beginnings, or restarts along creative or romantic lines. You feel strongly about doing more enjoyable things and discovering more pleasurable pastimes. You are feeling good from the inside out, and this attracts favorable circumstances, and people, into your life.
You’re making smart decisions and seeing your priorities clearly right now, dear Pisces. You are likely to give good advice and to be specially regarded as someone with common sense right now. This morning’s New Moon occurs in your sector of home and family and brings fresh, take-charge energy into your life for personal and domestic pursuits. Getting in touch with your true feelings can be empowering, helping you make decisions in many different life “departments.” This New Moon can serve as a nudge to reconnect with yourself or to check in with your feelings and comfort levels before pressing forward. On another, more literal level, this can be a good cycle in which to start fresh with home projects or to reorganize or remodel your living space. There can be a move, preparations for a relocation, or a resolution to become more active with family or to take more time off for enjoying home life.
