Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s New Moon is in your sign, bringing vital energy for new starts, dear Aries. Aim to begin your solar year with confidence and mindfulness. In the coming week, you might decide to start important projects. Your initiative and independence are in the spotlight now. Today’s lunation launches an exciting and empowering cycle for turning over a new leaf, as it serves as a boost of energy and initiative to put personal plans into motion. New beginnings related to health, image, personality, manner, and appearance are in store. Today’s Venus-Pluto aspect tends to create drama–you’re attracting attention, but it may be unwanted or the wrong kind at the moment. If there’s tension present in your interactions with others, consider that it’s really about power, and remember that real empowerment comes from control over your own impulses and your own life. The desire for more freedom and spontaneity is big these days, but your ambitions or desire to control and be on top of things with your work can interfere, leading to tensions. Try not to allow worries about competition or changes and uncertainties in your work, your future, or with your reputation affect your personal life and enjoyment.
TaurusToday’s New Moon can encourage you to dig deep and find ways to put problematic elements of your past behind you, dear Taurus. It’s an important time for you to look back and review, process, and digest recent events. Still, you can be anxious to get into gear and take action on improving your attention to healing and rest. You might aim to use this extra blast of power to put the dysfunctional elements of your life behind you, although you’re likely to dip a little in motivation initially. Today’s Venus-Pluto aspect can point to some tensions revolving around hidden agendas, as there can be a decided lack of honest, direct, or to-the-point communications right now. Your needs are complicated today. Try not to let differences of opinion affect harmony and peace in your personal life.
GeminiToday’s New Moon is powerful for a fresh start with your friendships, networks, social life, and happiness goals, dear Gemini. New beginnings are on the horizon, and you’re feeling encouraged, inspired, and hopeful. However, watch for succumbing to pressure or paranoia at this time. In the coming week, you might decide to begin a new venture or join a group or team. This Moon can help push things forward and bring a fresh start to straggling areas. It can give you an extra boost of courage or a nudge towards putting plans into motion, realizing your dreams, and making moves. Today’s Venus-Pluto influence can point to a tendency to hold onto an issue that’s dragging you down only because you’re afraid to let it go. Take a break from the regular routine, especially if it’s making you feel as if you are in a rut. Fear of being out of the loop or of being blindsided can be at the root of challenging behaviors today. The desire to enjoy your friendships, social life, or new projects is strong, but it can be tough to do so with worries in the mix.
CancerToday’s New Moon can prompt a new beginning or approach to your professional plans, long-term goals, or life path pursuits, dear Cancer. While you may have been feeling some lack of direction or frustrated with a state of limbo, you’re becoming clearer in your goals, and career matters tend to pick up speed in the week ahead. You can become aware of new responsibilities while old plans and projects fall out of focus. Opportunities for improving your image or reputation can surface. However, today’s Venus-Pluto square can present temporary obstacles or hurdles in relationships. People can be especially sensitive or easy on the trigger today, with this transit bringing up a bit of paranoia or suspicion in our interactions. A little self-knowledge and understanding can go a long way. Aim to make peace with the past rather than bring it into the present in disruptive ways.
LeoIf you’re considering a unique adventure, a new course, or a publishing project, today’s New Moon can prompt new beginnings along these lines, dear Leo. This can be a good time for drawing up new plans. Feed your mind, enjoy new experiences, and brush up on skills for best results now. The need for a fresh perspective or stimulating extra-curricular activities is strong in the week ahead, and fresh starts can help broaden your horizons. You’re recognizing the need to live your life more fully, although you can feel some restlessness before finding your way. You can feel especially inspired and motivated to turn over a new leaf. You are looking forward and at the same time, in charge of what’s happening if you tame today’s inclination towards impulsiveness. Even so, a Venus-Pluto square can pull up buried frustrations. It also tends to trigger fears related to a sense of being out of the loop or out of control. The desire to explore the world around you, live life more spontaneously and expressively, meet new people, and enjoy different settings and experiences is strong, but you can feel temporarily weighed down by pressures related to work and health. You may not want to, but delegating tasks, releasing your tight hold on your work or routines, or reducing your workload might help you find more time to explore, expand, and flourish.
VirgoThe New Moon today can help motivate you to sort your financial affairs, seek mental, material, or emotional support, or start a new plan for emotional health and wellness, dear Virgo. With a New Moon, it’s best to intuit your next move and then wait a few days to put plans into motion. In the week ahead, there can be opportunities to rid yourself of limiting attitudes or rework your attitudes toward life in empowering ways. Your insight into which aspects of yourself that you need to transform is strong. You’re also learning to accept others’ support or determined to sort out feelings of indebtedness. An event could take place that opens your eyes to the need for handling debts or shared resources. Financial and intimate matters are in focus, and while there can be challenges and obstacles involved, a take-charge attitude emerges. Today’s Venus-Pluto aspect can complicate feelings or stir tensions in your romantic or personal life that pull you away from exploring new feelings and experiences. Try to let go of overanalyzing matters or dwelling on things you can’t control, particularly people and relationships, so that you can free yourself up for more positive, empowering energy coming into your life.
LibraIf you want to start fresh or make changes in your relationship state or status, dear Libra, today’s New Moon is strong for setting your intentions. It’s an excellent time to strengthen a relationship or your own resolve, and communicate in imaginative ways. New beginnings with relationships, especially one-to-one connections and partnerships, agreements, or contracts, are in store in the week ahead, arising from real-world tensions. This lunation can lead 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 a relationship. However, with a Venus-Pluto square today, there can be storm clouds if you’ve been ignoring or burying your feelings, fears, or resentments. At the root of tension may be a need to make lasting changes that pull you out of a rut. However, try not to put all the pressure on yourself to do so immediately.
ScorpioAfter today’s New Moon, you could be intent on launching new self-care programs and work projects, dear Scorpio. It’s an important time for understanding your work needs, plans, and goals. You might come to realize that you’re holding onto behaviors or goals that no longer serve you well, and it’s a good time to think about new methods and improved routines. Frustrations can motivate you to improve your daily affairs, work, or health. It’s a time to turn over a new leaf and move forward. You are highly motivated to start fresh, so much so that you could err a little by setting your goals too high. If you pace yourself, you’ll get the plan right. Improved routines and attitudes towards your daily affairs can help reinvigorate your life. However, with a Venus-Pluto square today, you may be feeling some tension if it seems your daily affairs are getting out of your control. You likely have many things going at once, and this doesn’t help. Avoid clinging to specific ideas if they are not serving you well.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon brings new energy and a take-charge attitude to your creative world, dear Sagittarius. In the coming week, you may be pushing forward a hobby, romance, or creative pursuit. It’s a vital time for new beginnings or fresh starts relating to fun, personal enjoyment, self-expression, children, romance, and leisure or creativity. Look for ways to express and enjoy yourself more fully. You could experience a reawakening of feelings in a relationship, and your mood is fresh and expansive. This is a time of new directions or beginnings related to the pursuit of your passions. Try not to force an issue today, as it can lead to much frustration with a Venus-Pluto transit also active. There can be twists or complications with your feelings in a relationship, or an issue related to money and resources you’re concerned about affects your mood. It does make sense to be more cautious with your personal information and possessions. Draw on patience and aim to understand your fears and feelings.
CapricornYou’re in strong shape for drawing up plans and lists of priorities, dear Capricorn, and spending more time on activities and endeavors in the home. In the coming week, today’s New Moon can help nudge new projects off to a great start. The New Moon occurs in the part of your chart that rules your base of operations and your sense of long-term security. It can be a time for a fresh start with living conditions, life at home or with family, and getting the chance to cocoon, feel safe, and get comfortable. Restlessness or frustration can spur you forward. Reorganizing, redecorating, investing in your home, and connecting to loved ones in healthier ways can be in focus. Today’s Venus-Pluto square could also motivate your need to make changes. If you feel that you’re in a rut or a tough place, you might become frustrated at the drop of a hat today. There is a strong desire to get comfortable, settle in, and enjoy quiet time or familiar surroundings, but your personal plans or problems can make it difficult to relax. Your ambitions or desire to stay on top of things require some taming now so that you can take time off that you need.
AquariusToday’s New Moon can bring a blast of energy for projects, learning, and work, dear Aquarius. In the week ahead, you’ll feel you have the tools to move a project forward. New energy is available to you for connecting and learning new things. A new beginning can be in the offing with learning, sharing, ideas, mental outlook, communications, transportation, personal interests, and daily life. While you have the chance to start fresh, you might battle some inner reservations, fears, or insecurities about putting your ideas out there. Once you’ve done so, healthy competition can be motivating. You’re shining now, particularly on the levels of intelligence and presentation. Nevertheless, there may be irritating issues surrounding transportation and mobility to contend with today as Venus forms a square to Pluto. It’s easy to overreact to little things or minor events with this transit active. You are highly alert and often very much on the ball, but be careful that this doesn’t lead to over-stimulation or nervousness. Watch for attempts to control situations too tightly.
PiscesWith today’s New Moon, the week ahead is good for starting fresh and taking charge, dear Pisces, particularly of a business, project, or money matters and spending habits. The desire to improve your lot in life comes on strongly. You may have to do some juggling, but the central focus should be on getting your financial life in order. Tonight’s New Moon provides you with an extra shot of energy and motivation to take charge. Transits can inspire you to take better care of your resources or put energy into building and securing your life in fundamental ways. A Venus-Pluto transit is also active today, and it can stir some tension. Matters of ownership can be unusually heavy, and it makes sense to be a little more cautious than usual with your wallet and personal information. Situations can pull up the need to manage feelings of resentment. If you’re facing recurring problems with friends or getting new projects off the ground, recognize the patterns now and aim to get to the bottom of it.
