Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The New Moon today reminds you of the need to recharge before moving forward, dear Aries, but it’s also bringing you a fresh start. This can mean there’s work to do regarding putting a long-standing problem behind you, and that you become aware of the need for more rest and perhaps some seclusion or special attention to your private life. A new cycle of rest and replenishment is upon you — a period of letting go, reviewing, and recharging your batteries, both spiritual and physical. Circumstances are such that they force your attention to your spiritual needs and mental health. The next few weeks are strong for putting projects, attitudes, or conditions that have run their course to a close. A yearly Sun-Neptune alignment occurs today, too, making tapping into your intuition a must. While practical matters may suffer a little, your imagination can take you to wonderful places, and this can be a fantastic exercise. Aim to get in better touch with your dreams and spiritual heart and make extra room for time to yourself and healing activities. Releasing resentment and embracing compassion, particularly regarding past matters that still have a hold on you, can be helpful now. While you may yet be working behind the scenes, there is some possible confusion now as Mercury has just shifted directions, and Uranus enters a new sign. Take in rather than push forward.
Today’s New Moon brings a symbolic fresh start, dear Taurus, and Uranus entering your sign further foretells a new beginning. This lunation brings a strong focus on making contacts and reaching out to others. It’s a time for considering your goals that involve networking, connecting with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project/activity, and nurturing goodwill. If you’ve been unhappy with particular friends or group associations, or find yourself lacking in this area of life, you’ll be anxious to make changes and take charge! This can be a day of illumination or illusion with Neptune in alignment with the Sun, which can awaken yearnings for kinship, friendship, and involvement on the soul level. You may be taking care of others, or you may be seeking support. You might become aware of the more confusing elements of your connections, or a deceptive or inconsistent component of a relationship. This can also be a time of big dreams for long-term happiness–you can be particularly interested in contributing to a worthy cause.
This is a time for reflecting on recent events in your life, dear Gemini, and for dreaming up long-term or career goals. Today’s New Moon aligns with Neptune and occurs in your career and reputation sector, clearing the path for new beginnings. Career and manifestation are in the spotlight! There can be a pleasant feeling of reinvigoration when it comes to your life plan goals, although there can be some backtracking involved before you see solid or consistent forward movement. There can be subtle changes in your life related to your influence or authority, career, status, or reputation. The Sun and Neptune coming together can also inspire you to dream big and may serve to illuminate your loftier goals, dreams, and ideals. Now is the time for incorporating imaginative, creative, and alternative methods into what you do, although it’s not the best time for attention to detail! Spiritual longing or elements of your goals or career that fail to satisfy may be magnified today, in fact, as you see areas where you’ve overlooked your needs for a higher purpose, spirituality, and imagination.
The New Moon today brings a symbolic fresh start, dear Cancer. You may be making a break from the past in some manner, and this helps clear the path forward. Avoid making important decisions just for now, though, since it’s still too early to know your precise next step. Instead, take in and draw upon your intuition, which can serve you exceptionally well. It’s vital to draw upon patience before a plan unfolds, but you can enjoy a pleasing change of pace that’s in the air now. There’s good energy for those embarking on travel or higher educational paths. This lunation also brings a stronger focus on your spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the ordinary experiences in your life. Events occurring now and in the coming weeks can serve to push you out of your routine and your comfort zone. A yearly Sun-Neptune alignment also encourages some extra fantasy and imagination, promoting the release of tension and resentment and the embracing of compassion. These are most likely to arrive through learning new things or finding inspiration through new experiences or perspectives. Publishing opportunities, trips, money ideas or money itself can emerge in unusual ways.
The New Moon today can prompt you to want to turn over a new leaf, dear Leo. It’s possible that a setback or sudden awareness of your needs can inspire you to start fresh, seeking to turn things around positively. This may relate to a dependency or financial matter. It can be a time for a lifestyle change or could motivate you to deal with issues related to trust that have been hijacking your life in some manner. In the weeks ahead, you may resolve a long-standing problem with money or love, although there can be some complications along the way–the path is not straight, but it gets you there! Opportunities to pool your resources with a partner or to share your load can emerge. The Sun forms its annual alignment with Neptune today, and it’s more powerful since it’s tied to the New Moon, serving to illuminate your more idealistic yearnings and spiritual needs, particularly related to relationships. If you’ve been feeling a lack on an intimate level, this can be magnified now. There can be questions of boundaries or confusion over shared resources that may require some vigilance.
Today’s New Moon points to a symbolic fresh start, dear Virgo, and changes are in the works. Even so, it’s better to reflect and intuit than to make plans that might fall through as new information comes to light in the coming weeks. Negotiations and one-to-one relationships are highlighted during this New Moon cycle–it’s a time for working on close relationships. Issues of sharing and partnership come to the fore. Inner unrest or a feeling that matters are out of your control related to your close personal relationships can now be replaced with a sense of empowerment with the New Moon’s take-charge energy on offer. You’re likely to move in a new direction or towards a new, enlightened perspective in the coming weeks. This lunation is in strong alignment with your partnership ruler, Neptune, and can reinforce and stimulate recent feelings about a person, relationship, or partnership needs. Complicated connections can be a strong focus. Yearnings for something more in your relationships can come on insistently, and this can be an essential time to consider what you’re lacking or wanting from relationships.
The New Moon today stimulates a desire or need for a new beginning regarding work, health, or self-care for you, dear Libra. It’s a time for breathing new life into old routines, or for approaching your daily life in a new, more inspired manner. Perhaps due to a dilemma experienced this week, a reinvigoration process begins now, and this is a time to start fresh! Feeling unsettled about how you’ve been managing your life is possible now, and this leads to making essential and valuable changes with diet regimes, healthy routines, and satisfying work schedules. You might also consider ways to better incorporate your spiritual or emotional needs into your daily routines, or reconsider whether your habits and systems reflect or support a higher sense of purpose. The humdrum doesn’t appeal to you right now! A creative detour can serve to refresh and reinvigorate you. Look for hidden trends and themes today, particularly with your work or efforts to help and support others.
Today’s New Moon sparks your creative juices, dear Scorpio, and can highlight romantic inclinations and the need to celebrate, enjoy yourself, or express yourself. It can be a passionate time for you, but there can also be some related confusion or the need for patience as a story unfolds. Feelings and connections are a little complicated at the moment. Events occurring now can serve as motivation for the restart or reinvigoration of a project, hobby, or your dating life. The Sun aligns with Neptune at the same time, and it can magnify feelings of longing if you’ve been neglecting specific needs, which you suddenly see dramatically now! Nevertheless, it’s a strong influence on romance, creativity, and imagination. There can be a feeling of serendipity, magic, or special kinship, or the motivation to seek these things out if you’re feeling something’s missing. The best way to handle Neptune aspects is to work on making your own happiness rather than turning to others to make it for you. This way, you’re more likely to attract positive experiences your way.
Today’s New Moon highlights the need to pay special attention to your home base and to find ways to make improvements, dear Sagittarius. There could be a previously neglected area of your life that now seems necessary to revisit. Living arrangements and conditions might be overdue for a change, but since Mercury has just turned retrograde in this same sector, there can be some complications or backtracking involved before you see overt forward motion. Certainly, longings for more comfortable or ideal conditions in your personal life can figure strongly now, but it can also be an inspired time when you release negative or pent-up feelings and enjoy more compassionate interactions with others. It’s not an ideal time for making commitments or attention to detail, but it’s strong for getting in touch with your spiritual heart. This is a good time for forgiving someone, or even yourself if resentments or guilt have been weighing you down. The key is to observe, reflect, and take in–patience is essential now!
Today’s New Moon can motivate you to approach your daily tasks in new ways, dear Capricorn, as you’re in line for a new beginning related to personal interests, studies, or commuting. This can also be the start of a brand new attitude that helps you to connect more effectively with the world around you. Improving your communication skills or taking bigger risks with learning and communicating may be in focus, but since Mercury has just turned retrograde in this same sector of your solar chart, this can be a time for expressing yourself in new ways or through different channels. There can be motivation to let go of outdated attitudes, mindsets, or conditions so that the path is clear for new beginnings. You may be seeking a stronger sense of purpose with or through what you’re doing and learning. You may be communicating in particularly creative or compassionate ways, and ideas for marketing or promotional strategies can be exceptional. The technical side of things may not get as much attention as the creative components now. Keep in mind that there can be errors, miscommunications, and regrets if you don’t take the time to slow down and listen to your needs.
Today’s New Moon can prompt a real desire to start fresh with your finances, possessions, or issues of self-respect, dear Aquarius. You might also be discovering ways to better manage your money and things now, and this particular lunation demands a highly creative approach–perhaps an unconventional one! It comes at a time when your ruler, Uranus, changes signs, and when Mercury has just turned retrograde in the same sector of your solar chart, so it’s not without its fair share of possible complications. The goal now should be to make more of what you have. It will be helpful to review recent developments and to focus on building and developing your resources. Consider ways to make improvements to your financial position and to boost your feelings of security, and in the coming weeks, your efforts towards these ends are likely to be rewarded. Your dreams and fantasies or ideals are in stronger focus than usual, but you may also pay more attention to areas of neglect or disappointment, depending on your current situation to round out your view of the best way to make changes.
This is a busy time, dear Pisces, but it’s also an important period for slowing down and connecting with your intuition! Today’s New Moon is in your sign, and just yesterday, Mercury turned retrograde in Pisces. As a result, the weeks ahead are powerful for beginning a new chapter of your life, and there can be some backtracking involved or the need for a creative path to getting where you want to go. Reshaping your image if it needs tweaks can be in focus or altering your approach may be in order. Discomfort may be part of this whole process since it can motivate you to start fresh! Ease yourself into this dynamic phase of your life for best results. Your innate compassionate and idealistic nature comes strongly to the fore now, and fortunately, others are seeking these things out, so you stick out as a leader. Keep in mind that you can be excited about plans, but you may overlook details and make errors if you rush. As the Sun illuminates or spotlights your dreams and ideals, consider ways to connect more strongly with them, or dream up something new that more accurately reflects your current needs and wants.
