Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThings are moving in the direction of more involvement and improvement with personal interests, relationships with siblings, and studies or communications these days, dear Aries. With today’s New Moon, new beginnings related to communications, connections, and commuting are likely. This lunation can stimulate a strong desire to make yourself heard or to recommit to a line of study. The urge to add more variety to your life is with you now, and you’re bound to put more of your personality into your personal interests and communications. The things you’re learning and sharing can be refreshing to your spirit. People tend to recognize your strength and wisdom, and you’re gaining practical benefits from your experiences now. With a Mercury-Neptune square active today, however, perceptions are complicated. If you’ve denied yourself necessary rest, downtime, or spiritual sustenance, you’ll feel especially drained now, prompting your attention to these needs. If you’re feeling hesitant about a project or idea, take a little more time to get things right. You’re especially sensitive to harsh or chaotic situations, and you may do better dreaming, imagining, and enjoying the world of creativity or imagination just for now.
TaurusToday’s New Moon occurs in your resources sector, dear Taurus, which is an area of your chart that holds dominion over money, natural talents, comfort, and security. Your attitude or approach to these areas of life is fresh, making this a good time for resolutions related to business and finances or boosting your sense of security. This lunation encourages you to put more of your energy into building your life in creative ways. It can serve to fuel your enthusiasm for making yourself more secure and comfortable. There may be opportunities in the coming weeks to become more productive or to improve the management of your finances. There’s some tendency to misjudge matters today, so do your best to reserve judgment. While a Sun-Saturn aspect helps you gain practical benefits from your experiences, financial thinking may not be on point for now.
GeminiToday’s New Moon in your sign brings discoveries and a feeling of newness to your life, dear Gemini. Still, take your time before moving forward. While it’s powerful energy for making improvements, Venus is currently retrograde in your sign, and it’s best to take your time with new beginnings. Others are taking notice of you, and this can serve to motivate you further to make efforts to be the best you can be. It’s an opportunity for renewal. In the weeks ahead, you may be changing the way you greet the world if this can benefit you, or 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. Dealing with responsibilities rather than hiding from them can be quite satisfying now. The chances are good that you’ve been feeling ready for a reboot or restart, and this New Moon may very well be it. It’s a good time for finding practical ways to make yourself feel secure. Thinking more about long-term security than immediate needs can help you develop excellent plans and strategies. Today, objectivity is somewhat compromised with a Mercury-Neptune square. Aim to use today for imagining possibilities without jumping to conclusions, allowing time to tell the truth of a matter. If goals are too far-reaching or not very clear now, take things one step at a time and entertain smaller, more realizable goals until you can put yourself behind something with confidence.
CancerWith today’s New Moon, the need to gain a better understanding of past events or to communicate more effectively becomes obvious, dear Cancer. This is a time that prompts some much-needed downtime and introspection. New hope and beginnings relate to your private life, mental health, and spiritual life. Now is the time for processing recent events and circumstances in your life. It’s best to take stock rather than begin all-new endeavors. This lunation has the power to push you on a new path of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment, which can come in very handy when the Sun enters your sign on June 20th. Getting comfortable with your inner needs and desires should come first for best results, and understanding recent events are part of this. You can feel quite motivated to make changes that help you simplify and strengthen your life. Still, with Mercury and Neptune clashing today, you could turn on the emotional blinders about a matter that you don’t want to face just yet. With misunderstandings highly likely now, it may be best to keep something to yourself.
LeoThe New Moon today points to a new take on a friendship or project, dear Leo. New beginnings in the weeks ahead relate to friends, networking, community, causes, and happiness goals. It’s a time for a fresh start or a new approach in these areas, and a different perspective on a matter can prompt this. You may be reminiscing before moving forward with a new plan for happiness and fulfillment. The motivation to make changes to your pursuit of happiness can come to you now and in the weeks ahead. You could be breathing new life into existing connections or arriving at new or renewed 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 close to your heart. Consider that a situation with a friend or lover likely has a lot more to it than meets the eye. Aim to reflect on changes you’d like to make down the road rather than rushing forward. People in your life or a relationship goal encourage you to focus on what’s most important. With Mercury square Neptune today, it can be challenging to see a situation clearly, especially with emotional attachments and finances. Try to keep abreast of what’s going on with shared resources.
VirgoWith a New Moon occurring at the top of your solar chart, dear Virgo, there can be new beginnings or a fresh approach with career, life path, long-term goals, responsibilities, reputation, social status, and leadership matters. It’s a time for wiping the slate clean and starting anew. Still, looking back before moving forward is necessary and worthwhile. Past disappointments can motivate you to make stellar improvements in the weeks ahead. You’re getting a boost or motivation to improve, take charge of, and grow these things. Breathing new life into a plan, project, or business can be in focus in the coming week. Opportunities for improving your image or reputation can surface. There can be the need to follow the rules or straighten out an area of your life. Be aware of the impact you have on others, as it is strong, but also answer to yourself and your needs and capabilities. Look for ways to streamline and simplify your life in your daily routines. At the same time, today’s Mercury-Neptune square asks you to answer to your need for more inspiration and imagination. Today, be vigilant if putting your faith in someone or something, or aim to reserve judgment on a matter until more information surfaces.
LibraToday’s New Moon occurs in your sector of spirit, adventure, higher learning, worldview, and belief systems or perspective, dear Libra. It’s a fine time to consider a line of study or find the time for more enjoyment and discovery in your life. A review of current or past unfulfilling activities may be the fuel for this reorientation. You’ll be building your faith, as well as understanding where you stand and what you believe. This New Moon acts as a charge, sending you in a new direction. In the coming weeks, you can feel renewed by a new perspective on your life. Sharing your experiences with others, publishing, marketing, or studies can be in stronger focus. It’s an excellent time for an attitude change for the better, positive feelings, optimism, and a stronger sense of purpose or meaning. Still, some self-reflection is appropriate so that you can get in better touch with your true desires. Creative endeavors might benefit from tweaks and edits. The need for more from your life, if misunderstood, can play with your perceptions today. A Mercury-Neptune square suggests that you may require mental refreshment or fresh inspiration, but you may mistake this for restlessness. Consider that discontent may have its root in needs for more fulfilling, creative, or imaginative work. Make time and space, if you can, for artistic or relaxing activities, but if you’re dealing with facts and figures, double-check your work.
ScorpioAfter today’s New Moon, dear Scorpio, intimate relationships can benefit from a new start or vision. However, you’re in the process of redefining what you want and need from others, as well as what you expect from yourself. You may be interested in developing a relationship or project further. Seeing old projects or relationships in a new light can prompt a new direction, approach, or beginning. Financial and intimate matters are in focus, and while there can be challenges and obstacles involved, a take-charge attitude is bound to emerge. This lunation can certainly act to stir your desires, and it occurs in the sector of your chart that rules intimacy, trust, bonding, and power dynamics. This house also rules support, shared resources, and debts, and the weeks ahead are strong for finding different ways to connect with a partner, pay off debts, or seek support. Take your time on this, however. It’s too soon to go hard with these things. You may be seeking more passion and intensity in a relationship or with a project, or you can feel compelled to take charge of a matter in which you feel indebted to someone or something. Think in terms of getting organized and simplifying or downsizing, particularly around the home. With Mercury forming a square to Neptune today, watch for wishful thinking that distorts your perceptions and decisions, and aim to put your imagination to more creative, empowering, and productive use.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon can prompt new beginnings or directions related to your close relationships and partnerships, dear Sagittarius. This lunation can point to 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. Aim to set intentions and goals that better reflect your redefined wants, needs, and expectations of others. Energies are powerful for a fresh start or turning point. New beginnings related to close relationship goals and needs are possible now. This can be about relating to others in healthier, more creative ways. 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. Being more productive and getting your daily affairs sorted seems integral to this. A Mercury-Neptune square active today tends to confuse rather than clarify, but some diffusion may be just what you need right now. It’s better to reserve judgment on a matter until more information surfaces since it’s highly unlikely you’re seeing the whole story now.
CapricornYou’re looking at old problems in new ways, mainly related to work, duties, and health these days, dear Capricorn. With today’s New Moon, your desire to be productive, useful, and helpful motivates you to start fresh. Seeing where you may have been tripping up or chasing the wrong things in the past can be part of this. Brand new beginnings in the material world should probably wait, but that doesn’t mean you can’t begin anew on an emotional level. It can certainly be a time of increased work, chores, and attention to your daily affairs and mundane tasks. The desire to improve your well-being and routines emerges now. You might want to bring more creative, happier energy to your work, and there can be new tasks or priorities that invigorate you. Improving the management of your material resources and accepting limitations instead of fighting them can be a major key. It can feel good to have a healthy and realistic idea of what to expect. Still, if you’ve been pushing yourself too hard or forgetting to feed your imagination, you’re likely to feel somewhat exasperated or drained, so aim for balance.
AquariusToday’s New Moon is good for reorienting yourself in a new direction on an emotional level, dear Aquarius. While you may be looking at romantic relationships or opportunities gone by, and this is a helpful process, you can feel especially motivated to make things better going forward with a new set of expectations and redefined needs. This New Moon occurs in your sector of joy in total harmony with Saturn in your sign, and it feels quite natural to turn your attention to creative or romantic matters. There may be some concerns about money or comfort issues, but it’s a good time for a new and improved approach to leisure time, love, dating, or pleasure and pastimes. In the weeks ahead, you can feel motivated to seek out more time to “play” or pursue creative and expressive activities. Today’s energies are a little complicated and point to some obstacles to face before feeling fresh and renewed. Dissatisfaction with routines, romance, creative output, or simply your current state can be more prominent now, but the good news is that you’ll be in the position to do something about it. Accepting your responsibilities or limits seems key to doing so. Still, it’s also important to seek out inspiration if it’s been missing from your life. Aim to take a pause and reconsider or reimagine your plans.
PiscesYou’re gaining a new understanding of what you want and need these days, dear Pisces, and this process can lead to a new beginning on an emotional level. Today’s New Moon can give you a sense of mission regarding your family, domestic world, or living conditions or arrangements. A fresh start or new approach to these areas of your life makes sense now. Unusual or previously buried desires can emerge that spur you to find new ways to express yourself on the domestic front. 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. Reorganizing, redecorating, and connecting in healthier ways can be in focus. This is an excellent time to work on paring down and letting go on emotional levels and the home front, as small changes made now will bring great rewards down the road. Temporary feelings of demotivation or restlessness are possible at first, but this will change soon. Instead of worrying about a missed opportunity from the past, resolve to be more prepared in the future.
