Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s New Moon occurs in your sign, dear Aries, and is bringing a sense of a personal new beginning to your life. It’s time to recreate or remarket yourself, and you have the power to do so. It’s best to plan ahead, or you could find yourself too quickly running out of steam. This lunation brings a whole new orientation, a blast of personal energy, and a sense that you’re getting going. It’s time to present yourself in ways that serve you best. 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. New beginnings related to health, image, personality, manner, and appearance are in store now and in the coming weeks.
TaurusWith the New Moon occurring today, dear Taurus, this is a time to observe and remain alert. This New Moon occurs in your soul sector, marking a period ahead of reviewing, letting go, seeking closure, and recharging your batteries. The urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. You require a little more time to reflect and detox on an emotional level. Still, new energy is with you for dealing with long-term problems. In the weeks ahead, you may need to put some things to rest, and this New Moon highlights this need. Your intuition is working powerfully now, and you can use this extra blast of power to put the dysfunctional elements of your life behind you so that you can improve, grow, and thrive. This may involve taking some form of time-out. This lunation prompts a redo or rebirth of energy directed towards your private life, and it marks a period of physical and emotional replenishment.
GeminiThis morning’s New Moon brings new energy to channel into your friendships and involvements with groups or teams, dear Gemini, as well as inspiration for new ideas and goals. Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come through your interactions with, or support of, friends and associates. Getting in touch with your innermost hopes and wishes is in the picture during this phase of your life. You may get the chance to start fresh socially or with a particular friend, or this lunation serves to renew your interest in pursuing a specific happiness goal. 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. There can be a fresh start in straggling areas, and collaboration is key.
CancerWith today’s New Moon, you might become a little clearer with your goals, dear Cancer. There can be the renewal of professional “steam” and a stronger sense that you can overcome stumbling blocks in your career, although you’ll need some patience to get all of this going. This lunation brings extra power and fresh energy to your life-path goals, 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 or dispel rumors. There are hurdles to clear in the process, but also more determination. You get a reminder that you are part of a larger system, and an integral part, too. Your awareness of your goals and responsibilities heightens at this time, prompting changes. Old plans or projects may fall out of focus as you make room for new ones.
LeoThe New Moon occurring this morning can serve as a prompt to expand your mind, feed your spirit, and stretch your imagination over the coming weeks, dear Leo. Activities that break you out of your routine are in focus. Something inspires you to turn over a new leaf. You are looking forward and, at the same time, in charge of what’s happening right now, particularly if you tame today’s inclination towards impulsiveness. It’s a time for making more room to explore new interests and changing up the routine. Or, you may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life. Learning something off the beaten track can be particularly refreshing. Feel the inspiration, but take things slowly rather than pushing things forward too quickly. The Sun, your ruler, is heading toward an alignment with Chiron, and your need to guide, heal, and improve motivates new beginnings and resolutions.
VirgoThe New Moon occurring this morning occurs in your solar eighth house, dear Virgo. This often helps get the wheels in motion for a fresh start via a lifestyle change, dependency matter, or financial situation. It’s a strong influence for stimulating the determination to make an important change or for pouring extra energy into a pet project. Taking charge of the areas of life where you feel unhealthily dependent on others comes naturally now, but it’s also a time for leaning on others if you’ve been doing too much on your own. Either way, it’s about understanding your attachments and improving your connections. 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. Still, it can just as well stimulate your inner frustrations if current relationships are not satisfying your deeper needs. The emphasis is on emotions, close ties, dreams, and your inner world. For some, there can be a new beginning related to anything shared or merged with a partner or support you receive from others.
LibraThis morning’s New Moon occurs in your partnership zone, dear Libra, suggesting a new approach or new beginning with a key relationship. This lunation can prompt a greater understanding or a full-on discovery of your relationship needs. Relationship needs are awakened and can feel urgent, but try to wait things out before making significant changes. Energies now can encourage a new or renewed connection in your life, or it can be about fresh negotiations and a stronger feeling for what you want from–and can bring to–a relationship. You possess more courage than usual to break down walls between you and others. This may also be a time for gaining a new perspective on your life through the eyes of someone else. The feedback you receive now can be important and useful. Putting in extra effort into your relationships is satisfying. Being more forthright and emotionally available seems especially vital now.
ScorpioThis morning’s New Moon can help clear the path for new beginnings related to self-care, work, and wellness, dear Scorpio. Health and wellness programs, as well as resolutions for better organizing your daily life, have more impact. You could have new priorities and tasks to manage, or there can be new directions with current projects. You can experience motivating prompts toward improved conditions. Adapting to changing circumstances may very well bring out creative new ideas and approaches that you wouldn’t have discovered otherwise. Positive feedback for your work or rapport with associates can be motivating. Do watch for impulsiveness and impatience. If you pace yourself, you’ll have the best chance to get the plan right. Improved routines and attitudes towards your daily affairs can help reinvigorate your life now.
SagittariusThe New Moon this morning occurs in your solar fifth house, dear Sagittarius, and this brings out your more creative, playful, or romantic inclinations. Reviving an old hobby or returning to a previous love may be in focus, or brand-new pleasures may be discovered in the weeks ahead. You could experience a reawakening of feelings in a relationship or a rekindling of a creative spark. You can have the chance to find new ways of expressing yourself in uniquely creative ways, or through rewarding pastimes. Your powers of attraction are stronger than usual at this time, and others can find you quite inspiring. The Sun is heading into alignment with Chiron, suggesting that you can even help others (and yourself) heal through personal attention and positivity.
CapricornToday’s New Moon begins a cycle that focuses on special attention to your domestic world, dear Capricorn. It’s a time for making changes and improvements to your home, domestic routines, or family relationships–or even about your relationship with your inner self. The improvements you make in these areas impact all areas of your life in some way. It can be a time for prioritizing, seeking, and making room for emotional replenishment. You might also focus on long-term ventures aimed to secure you and your loved ones. Reorganizing, redecorating, and connecting to loved ones in healthier ways can be in focus. You become more aware of your need for a support system now, and this stimulates you to improve, change, and enhance your domestic world.
AquariusThe New Moon occurring today stimulates a sense of beginning new, dear Aquarius, mainly related to learning and connecting, as it influences your sector of communications. You’re now in a position to take charge and make meaningful improvements. You may be bringing fresh energy to past studies and ventures, reinvigorating them, or branching out and learning new things. You can feel strongly about reorganizing and decluttering your daily life now. This can point to a fresh start in a relationship with a sibling. You might find ways to feel better about yourself and your contributions. This lunation brings a spirit of newness to your communications, learning, and personal interests. You can feel particularly busy and connected on a mental level. There can certainly be a lot coming in, many things to do, and a generally quick pace. Sharing your expertise can be beneficial. You’re curious, engaged, and alert.
PiscesThere can be a fresh start involving money or resources following this morning’s New Moon, dear Pisces. New energy is with you for creating success or for better management of your resources and practical affairs as you see your situation differently and your needs more clearly. You can feel particularly motivated to make your life secure and comfortable. You may want to put more of your energy into building and securing your life in fundamental ways in the coming weeks, and this New Moon gives you the gumption. As you contribute and share, you naturally draw resources your way. This influence can also stimulate the need to reorganize your life on an emotional level if you’ve been feeling that people have been undervaluing you.
