The pursuit of your passions is in focus now and in the coming weeks. You might consider new avenues for entertainment and creative expression.

People see you with fresh eyes. Something may need to go for you to move forward with less baggage and more confidence. With so much attention to the past recently, you’ll be itching to move forward, even if you don’t quite know the direction you’re heading yet. New light may shine on a matter regarding personal plans or wellness.
PiscesThe New Moon today launches a period for focusing on much-needed rest, review, and healing, dear Pisces. It can be a time of giving back, settling karmic debts, and soul-searching.

An instinctive need for change from the inside out is with you now. It’s time to make room for spiritual renewal and refreshment. You could be putting attitudes and projects or circumstances that have run their course behind you, but first, you need to go within to discover what these are. You might want to take action now on recent revelations, but for the most part, this is a time of reflection rather than new initiatives. Getting comfortable with your inner needs and desires is a highly appropriate goal. Understanding and processing recent events are part of this.
