Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in great shape for reflecting on recent events in your life and dreaming up long-term or career goals, dear Aries. Today’s New Moon occurs in your career and reputation sector, and career and manifestation are in the spotlight. It’s a time to reinvigorate your life plan goals and make changes with your influence or authority, career, status, or reputation. 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. Today, it’s best to watch for impulsive actions while listening to a restless urge for change.
TaurusToday’s New Moon brings a symbolic fresh start, dear Taurus, and you might break from the past in some manner, helping clear the path forward. Aim to draw upon patience before a plan unfolds, but enjoy a pleasant change of pace in the air now. It’s a time of building confidence and inspiration. This New Moon can also bring 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 nudge you out of your routine. It’s a time for sharing your experiences with others, publishing, marketing, promotion, and studies with new energy. It’s an excellent time for an attitude change for the better, optimistic feelings, and a stronger sense of purpose or meaning. You’re seeking out ways to feel more alive, vibrant, and connected, and you’re likely to find them.
GeminiToday is strong for reflecting upon your closest relationships and what you’ve learned in the recent weeks, dear Gemini, not only about others but also your contribution to, or feelings about, a partnership. Today’s New Moon brings a new focus and the next step. In the week ahead, you’re ready to pursue goals, especially related to self-mastery and improvement. Financial and intimate matters are in focus, and a take-charge attitude is bound to emerge. Still, it’s best to watch for an excessive approach–some things are exaggerated and egos may seem bigger than usual! Avoid stretching yourself too thin, and wait until you’ve reached a state of inner certainty before making important decisions. Still, it can be a time for a lifestyle change–you might want to feel less dependent on others, or you feel motivated to deal with trust issues that have hijacked your life, for example. Opportunities to pool your resources or talents with someone or to share your load can emerge.
CancerToday’s New Moon pulls your attention to your relationships or the need for collaboration, dear Cancer, and provides fresh energy for these matters. 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 deals, negotiating, and connecting. You might benefit from counseling or pairing up with someone to accomplish a goal. Alternatively, you may arrive at meaningful conclusions about your relationship needs through current events. It’s also a fine time to see yourself through others’ eyes. You’re taking steps to improve your connections and finding ways to bring more balance, harmony, and beauty into your life. Today, avoid taking on too much.
LeoToday’s New Moon can bring on a new beginning with work, health, or self-care, dear Leo. It’s time to breathe new life into old routines or approach your daily life in a new, more inspired way. A reinvigoration process begins now! An unsettled feeling can be expected regarding how you’ve managed your life, as it motivates you to make valuable changes with healthy routines or satisfying work schedules. You’ll be well-positioned to jumpstart improvements or initiatives that help you shape up your life in fundamental ways. New priorities, jobs, or tasks can be motivating now. Watch for taking on a lot and dividing yourself to the point of distraction, and wait before throwing yourself into something brand new–let it come naturally.
VirgoToday’s New Moon ignites your creative or romantic fires, dear Virgo, bringing out your need to celebrate or pursue your joy. Feelings and events occurring now can motivate the start or restart of a project, hobby, or your dating life. The coming week is solid for attracting positive attention from others. Consider making a resolution to listen to your heart, express yourself more openly, or enjoy leisure time more often. While it’s certainly a time to put yourself out there, it’s probably best not to push this–ease yourself into new beginnings. Aim to explore reasons for restlessness rather than let discontent drive you.
LibraThe Sun moved into your home and family on the 21st, dear Libra, and today, a New Moon occurs in this same area of your solar chart, stirring a desire or need to start fresh in your personal life. The weeks ahead are excellent for turning over a new leaf. This sector of your chart rules your sense of security, desire for safety and a feeling of belonging, and your support system. It’s a time for new or renewed initiatives related to these matters. Reorganizing, redecorating, investing in a home or items for the home, and connecting to loved ones in healthier ways can be in focus. Living arrangements and conditions might be overdue for a change, and now is the time to work some magic. Tired old ways of relating can be more frustrating or glaring than usual today, which can fuel the motivation to make improvements.
ScorpioToday’s New Moon motivates you to approach your daily tasks in new ways, dear Scorpio. You’re in line for a new beginning related to personal interests, studies, connecting, learning, or commuting in the week ahead. This lunation can also mark the start of a brand new attitude that helps you connect more effectively with the world around you. Improving your communication skills or taking bigger risks with learning and communicating may be in focus. This New Moon can also ignite your desire to connect, communicate, share your ideas, and be heard. You’ll soon be ready to begin a new project, venture, or course of study or making plans along these lines. You’re seeking more intelligent interactions and conversations or more interesting topics to explore. This cycle often brings the urge or need for new ways to get around, and it can be a particularly busy time for daily affairs and errands.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon inspires or motivates you to take better care of your resources, dear Sagittarius. You’re now ready to put more of your energy into building and securing your life in fundamental ways. Taking charge of your finances can play a big role in this, but so can working on developing your natural talents or current resources to better use what you already have. For best results, seek ways to feel more in control of spending, saving, and managing. 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, money, and boosting your sense of security. Your resourcefulness is working at peak conditions. Today, aim to watch for overreaching or taking on more than you can handle. Optimism is great, but piling on too much can come back to haunt you when your energies are low.
CapricornYou’re itching to do something new or to express yourself in different ways, dear Capricorn, but you may not yet know what it is you want to express or how to go about it. Today’s New Moon is in your sign and is all about you. In the coming weeks, you will make changes that reflect updated needs and plans. You may be in the mood for an attitude makeover or change. Today, you can experience restlessness as you feel changes on the horizon. You can sense that there is more out there for you, but a plan of action has yet to come together–allow one to evolve as you go forward. Others might come up with wild ideas, but avoid putting your faith in promises made to you right now. You may have a battle of wills with a family member or experience a conflict of interest today, seeking some freedom from restrictions. The weeks ahead are powerful for beginning a new chapter of your life. Reshaping your image if it needs tweaking can be in focus. Ease yourself into this dynamic phase of your life for best results.
AquariusToday’s New Moon can nudge you along a new path of self-discovery and empowerment, dear Aquarius. It brings a new beginning or fresh start, but it’s also about your need to recharge before moving forward. There may be some work to do regarding putting a long-standing problem behind you, and you can become aware of the need for more rest and perhaps some seclusion or special attention to your private life. It’s a time to recharge, review, and let go spiritually and physically. Circumstances could force your attention to your spiritual needs and mental health at this time of year. You might decide to change up your routines in small ways so that you satisfy a need for something new and different. Although you may want to give a personal project or endeavor your all, a call to share or collaborate can interrupt your efforts. Aim to take in rather than push forward.
PiscesThe New Moon today brings a symbolic fresh start, dear Pisces, and a strong focus on making contacts and reaching out to others. It’s time to consider your goals for connecting, networking, joining or strengthening ties, and nurturing goodwill. If you’ve been unhappy with particular friends or associations or feel something’s lacking in your social life, you’re now getting ready to take charge. The week ahead is good for inspiration, new ideas, and collaboration. This New Moon can also be about new beginnings related to your pursuit of happiness. You might breathe new life into existing connections or arrive at new goals, dreams, and plans to look forward to and enjoy. Have faith in your ability to better manage your life today, but avoid the traps of too-optimistic thinking that come with a Jupiter-Uranus transit. Right now, it’s better to experiment with different approaches and ideas than to tie yourself to them.
