Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s New Moon can prompt the need (or desire) for a new approach to your career, business, responsibilities, or reputation, dear Aries. You have a strong desire for more authority over your own life! Unexpected professional opportunities can pop up, or this New Moon brings a sense of renewal or revival. It’s time for new or realigned goals and different ways of doing business. Mind you, a Mars-Saturn square can get you off to a slow or perhaps pessimistic start, but beyond it, you’re devising strategies to reach your goals. The challenge is to face up to reality or manage a delay or slowdown. Tension and blockages are likely to revolve around your social life or finances, or there can be a conflict between sticking with tried-and-true methods and going out on a limb. Consider putting a problem aside for a bit if it’s just not budging. You may think up a better way to go about it at a later time. Fortunately, tension breaks up as the day advances. Pleasure through your work and responsibilities or regarding a sense of your future opening up for you is likely. Bringing a fresh attitude, idea, or method to the table can figure strongly, and you’re especially open to making progress, moving on, and embracing different approaches. With money, responsibility, or work, you may have reason to breathe a sigh of relief, or there is a bit more freedom or leeway to enjoy now.
TaurusToday’s New Moon can prompt new approaches to home life, learning, publishing, and recreation in the week ahead, dear Taurus. New or revitalized interests, unusual studies, and different perspectives can lead you in different directions. With a Mars-Saturn square early today, it’s probably best to treat others with extra sensitivity and care. Instead, there can be a slowdown if you’ve been rushing ahead too fast, which is quite likely with energetic Mars currently transiting your sign. This could take the form of a delay, criticism, reality check, or discouraging moment. Aim to pick yourself back up and strengthen your plans so that you get back on course, better equipped to weather the storms. As the day advances, you’re ready to put problems behind you. You’re inclined to latch onto a vision that’s positive and inspiring. Letting go of negative feelings such as resentment feels great now.
GeminiWith the New Moon today, there can be opportunities to rid yourself of limiting attitudes, dear Gemini. You gain insight into which aspects of yourself need transforming. From now forward, you can be 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 more effectively. A Mars-Saturn square early today can mean you’re dealing with obstacles or slowdowns, or there is a sense that you can’t express yourself, your desires, or your frustrations effectively. You could be feeling that you’re stuck in the past, unable to move forward, but it’s temporary–perhaps even motivating. The morning may not be as free-flowing as you’d like, but as the day advances, you feel increasingly less blocked. It can be a time of experimenting with different ways to relate, and learning something exciting and new in the process. You could have flashes of inspiration that help you see the light, either within yourself or in a partner. There can be important breakthroughs of feeling, or liberating yourself from a burdensome secret or concern can be refreshing.
CancerToday’s New Moon can prompt you to put attitudes that no longer serve you well behind you, dear Cancer, so that you can move forward in the relationship department. The desire or need to cooperate and merge with someone is strong. Relationship needs awaken, and unusual impulses push you into a new beginning of sorts. This morning’s Mars-Saturn square can have the effect of slowing you down temporarily if you’ve been pushing too hard or too fast in a particular area. Difficulties with trust and power dynamics that have been festering might now emerge in challenging ways. Bottled-up frustrations aren’t good for you, but exploding can be destructive as well. Aim for moderation, and you’ll be in the best position now. Do your best to respond to challenges with patience and mindfulness. The tension breaks as the day advances. Friends tend to support you, and you’re quick to return the favor. You’re in good shape for expanding your reach and entertaining new pleasures or ways of relating. There can be a liberating feeling regarding friendship and partnership.
LeoA New Moon occurs in your work and health sector, dear Leo, and it can pump you up to make meaningful changes to your regular daily routines. Circumstances are such that you need to take charge of your work and health habits, and new directions are likely. Watch for impulsiveness and impatience, but enjoy new ideas and approaches. This is a time for doing work, health, and self-care in brand new ways. However, the tone of the morning can be tense. A Mars-Saturn challenge can remind you of limits, rules, or obstacles, most notably through a person or relationship. It’s a signal to slow down, reconsider, review, and adjust rather than give up on something altogether. There can be difficulties with a partner or superior, or you could feel blocked from pursuing your goals or asserting your wishes. Challenges may have to do with something you’ve buried or tucked away. Watch for defensiveness, which won’t serve you well. Blocks are temporary and may very well be helpful, as redirection can pull your attention to flaws that need correcting before going forward. The day progresses lighter and happier. Venus and Uranus form a trine aspect, and you’ll find that detaching yourself from expectations and being in the moment leads to greater pleasure with the work you do or services you provide. Pursuing your goals is more pleasurable and engaging.
VirgoToday’s New Moon asks you to pay more attention to finding outlets for creativity, leisure, love, and pleasure, dear Virgo. It encourages you to find the time for relaxing, creating, and enjoying yourself as you do. Making more room for recreation and personal enjoyment is important now. This morning’s Mars-Saturn square is a tense one but can lead to important releases. You may be dealing with stubbornness in others or blocked plans. It’s best to keep in mind that the harder you push or the stronger you come on, the more resistance you’re likely to encounter just for now. Try not to waste time and energy on things that can’t be changed. Aim instead to concentrate on improving relationships, which are likely to see movement and growth as the day advances. In fact, you’re quick to turn ordinary circumstances into fun, exciting ones or otherwise make the best of a situation later today. You’re also very much in need of something a little different, upbeat, and engaging.
LibraA New Moon can prompt a fresh approach or changes, dear Libra, particularly with living conditions, life at home or with family, and getting the chance to cocoon, feel safe, and get comfortable. You’re looking for the comfort of familiarity, and it’s precisely what you need right now. This morning’s Mars-Saturn square suggests the need to slow down if you’ve been pushing a pursuit — or yourself — too hard. Intimate matters or issues of money, commitment, trust, and power dynamics can be tricky now, and patience is required. There may be some off-timing or inhibitions that prevent a smooth flow of affection and direct assertion. As the day advances, the tension breaks considerably. A Venus-Uranus transit helps pull you out of a rather serious mindset and draws out your spontaneity. Forward movement on a home project can be exciting, and it’s a good time for creative problem solving around the home or creative relating with family members.
ScorpioThe New Moon falls in your solar third house, dear Scorpio, bringing new energy for you to learn, develop interests, make contacts, and explore different channels for communicating. There can be more mental rapport with others, and you might focus on developing this further. There can be stop and go energy this morning with Mars square Saturn. Interactions may suffer from poor timing or the perception that others are disapproving and disinterested. There can be a feeling of being blocked, which can be frustrating. However, it’s also a message from the cosmos to be patient, wait things out, and spend a little more time getting things right before pushing ahead with your plans. The tension breaks as the day advances. Once beyond a hurdle or doubt, you can feel a strong desire to grow and improve. A relationship might reach a new level, or a conversation can occur that puts a problem behind you. Your definition of love or attractiveness is unique at the moment.
SagittariusThe New Moon can prompt a new approach to business or finances, dear Sagittarius. Others can be especially intrigued by your talents, services, or work. Whether it’s about stretching what you already have or using new things to make yourself more comfortable, the weeks ahead of this New Moon can be rewarding. You can feel inspired to innovate with money and better use your resources. Early today, if you’ve been pushing in one direction too quickly, you may face blocks to your plans as Mars and Saturn form a square. Consider that delays can give you the chance to make advantageous refinements and edits so that you can resume your activities better equipped at a later time. As the day advances, you can experience a resurgence of excitement about what you’re doing. With the slightly detached energy of a Venus-Uranus trine, it’s easier than usual to leave frustrations behind. You may enjoy an unexpected pleasure or connection now. Enjoying a detour from the usual routine is another possibility. A change of pace is good for you now, and it feels nice to be looking forward to the future.
CapricornThe New Moon is in your sign, signaling a period of personal new beginnings and a chance to reinvent yourself, dear Capricorn. This lunation helps to reinforce a strong sense of self. It can serve as a powerful motivator or prompt to make personal changes and improvements in the weeks ahead. Your drive to be counted, seen, and heard emerges in full force, and you might consider ways to update your presentation or image, which can lead to a fresh start of sorts. This morning, a Mars-Saturn square can seem to apply the brakes to projects and plans that have been moving too fast for their own good. Worries and concerns could put a damper on your mood. You may be fearful of change on a basic security level yet attracted to taking some risks, which now poses a dilemma. As the day advances, it’s easy to let go and embrace change. Creative talents are in the spotlight. You might turn heads and gain the attention of someone special. You feel a little more courageous about expressing yourself.
AquariusToday’s New Moon favors a new start with how you do your downtime, dear Aquarius, as it occurs in your solar twelfth house. You’re looking at mental health, rest, relaxation, and escapism in new ways. Events and realizations help distance you from self-limiting secrets or situations, which ultimately makes you feel lighter and freer. There can be an early-day hurdle with Mars in your home sector square Saturn in your sign. Because it’s tied to the New Moon, you can have a sense that you need to overcome an obstacle to begin anew. A feeling of being unsupported or overly burdened could come on now. While this is temporary, it’s important to examine ways to make changes in your life to prevent problems such as these from growing or festering. Fortunately, even if you start the day feeling somewhat restricted, you feel freer and lighter as the day moves forward. You might feel compelled to share a private feeling or release yourself from heavy feelings that have weighed you down. There may be a new development in an attraction or a private matter in a relationship. The Venus-Uranus trine today is spontaneous, and so is the Moon’s move into your sign. Enjoy the courage to express or explore your desires or wishes today.
PiscesThe need or desire to make a fresh start in your social life can emerge now with the New Moon, dear Pisces. The coming days are powerful for reaching out to others, connecting with your happiness goals, or finding your place in your networks or community and among friends. You’re planting seeds for future goals and dreams. It can be a most inspired time of year for you! Watch for defensiveness and sensitivity early today, but do consider that this is a time for the motivation to plan more responsibly or clearly as Mars and Saturn form a square aspect. You may be dealing with communication or transportation delays. While they appear to set you back, you might now notice details that you missed due to your haste the first time through. As the day advances, a Venus-Uranus connection is a rather detached, light, and noncommital kind of energy that’s easy for you to enjoy. Sensitivity is a strength, and you can feel freer as you accept something about your nature now. Your unique perspective is valued. There can be a feeling of relief or release from a concern or obligation, particularly related to a friend or a long-term goal, or something that’s now out in the open leaves you feeling a little freer or lighter.
