Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA new plan to enjoy and express yourself more often can take off after today’s New Moon, dear Aries. A romantic attraction might motivate you, or you take an interest in growing and improving your creative pursuits and connections. Your best self shines through in what you’re doing. This New Moon can prompt you to do more creating, romancing, enjoying, and entertaining. There can be opening doors, new beginnings, or restarts along creative or romantic lines in the period ahead. A boost of energy can jumpstart joyful activities or experiences. However, there can be some wild cards to manage today. Depending on the situation and your perspective, they can be fun and exciting or disruptive. Watch for a tendency to worry or plan poorly due to nerves. Speaking too quickly on a matter can be a problem when you’re tense.
TaurusToday’s New Moon brings fresh energy into your life for personal and domestic pursuits, dear Taurus. You might consider this lunation a push to reconnect with yourself — to check in with your feelings and comfort levels before pressing forward. A new start with family, home life, or living conditions and arrangements is possible in the week ahead. You might immerse yourself in family projects or home improvement activities. Nevertheless, it’s best to treat today as a transitional day rather than a time for bold moves. A Mercury-Uranus aspect today can point to some temporary disconnects or a nervous disposition. Part of you wants to stay with the familiar, while another part seeks to branch out and pioneer something new. Indecision can be the result. Try not to overthink things, which is a strong tendency now.
GeminiToday’s New Moon motivates you to make valuable, happy connections and contacts, improve your skills, and come up with new ideas, dear Gemini. You might begin a new course, writing project, or make a new friend in the week ahead. It’s a great time to think about your goals and resolutions in these areas. Watch for too-quick moves. You can be quite attracted to new things and situations, and practical solutions arrived at now are inventive, or can involve seeking out hidden or previously unknown sources. For now, think about your goals and resolutions. Today’s Mercury-Uranus transit can be a little disorienting as it shakes up schedules and thought processes. There can be many ideas but little organization! Tension results from trying too hard to make order out of chaos. Watch for speaking too soon about a matter and seek ways to center or ground yourself for best results.
CancerYou may seek a fresh start with money, resources, or belongings, dear Cancer, with today’s New Moon occurring in your income sector. You’re motivated to boost your income or sense of self-worth. The need to overcome problem areas or get past something is compelling now. You’ll approach your finances from a new, refreshed perspective in the week ahead. For now, you might make some resolutions related to business, finances, and boosting your sense of security. Aim to receive and enjoy new ideas and sort them out patiently as you go along. Today’s Mercury-Uranus square can produce a bit of chaos, but stirring things up might lead to exciting ideas. You could find that you’re clashing with a friend about an idea or core value before you get to a greater understanding. It may be best to avoid doing things so quickly that you end up missing the mark. Observe and learn rather than jump into action.
LeoAfter the energy of today’s New Moon in your sign, you’ll recognize how to move forward brightly and powerfully, dear Leo. It’s a time to entertain a dream or wish, the spirit of which carries you along. There can be a personal new beginning or a sense that you have a new lease on life. You feel more power to make changes and steer your life where you want it to go in the coming week. You might change the way you greet the world if this can benefit you. You are more dynamic than usual, and people appreciate you, often turning to you for your input. Today’s Mercury-Uranus transit can point to unexpected reactions to your communications, however. There can be interruptions, nervous tension, or a change to your schedule to manage. These may be disruptive, but you might decide to work with the energy and enjoy the element of surprise.
VirgoWith today’s New Moon in your solar twelfth house, dear Virgo, it’s an important time for you to look back and review, process, and digest recent events. A sense of inner well-being can come from making plans for the future that inspire growth and hope. At the same time, it’s not quite the time to lock things down. Rather, you’re exploring possibilities and connecting with your inner needs. Today’s New Moon inspires a strong need for rest and replenishment–spiritual needs and mental health are priorities. In the coming days, you are inclined to take charge of personal and private matters that need your attention. Or, you might give more time to a person in need or an important cause. Buried and neglected issues can now demand your attention! If you’ve neglected your psychic or emotional concerns, you’re now ready to acknowledge and attend to them. Today, something communicated can stir up a bit of tension and perhaps some defensiveness. Consider whether it’s better to correct or ignore errors and move on. It’s a day when sharp words and moves can result from impatience or misunderstandings as Mercury forms a square with Uranus. There can be changes in plans, unexpected results, or communications that interrupt the flow. However, something random or sudden may stimulate a new perspective.
LibraWith today’s New Moon, dear Libra, it can be a time for great ideas and new directions. This New Moon boosts your intuition, particularly regarding your friendships, networks, social life, and happiness goals. New beginnings are on the horizon, and you feel encouraged, inspired, and hopeful. There can be a fresh start with a friendship or special project. New goals, dreams, and plans to look forward to and enjoy can emerge in the week ahead. You see your contributions or position with others in a new light. Today’s Mercury-Uranus square can put the pressure on, particularly on a mental level. Nervous energy can run high with this influence. The desire can be to break away from conventional methods, but doing so abruptly can stir up unnecessary tension. Keep in mind that, with this transit, restlessness can lead to words or moves you want to take back. There might be ways to go your own way that cause less of a stir. Try not to think too far ahead; aim for one step at a time if you’re overwhelmed by choices.
ScorpioToday’s New Moon puts you in an excellent place to make improvements and updates to your life, dear Scorpio, mainly with finances, business, work, and health. You’re building more confidence with your goals and plans. This lunation brings forward-looking, take-charge energy to your life. There may be new responsibilities, recognition, or a position or project on the horizon. There can be the need to follow the rules or straighten out an area of your life. If you desire to move up a notch in your professional life, you’ll soon feel you have the tools necessary to do so. Otherwise, it can be a time of helpful tweaks to improve your reputation or focus. Take the time to plan and act rather than react, especially with today’s Mercury-Uranus transit also in play. The pace can be a little too quick, and you might feel out of step with the rest of the world temporarily. Flexibility is your best strategy, as allowing for the unexpected can help reduce the tension.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon can drive new beginnings and a fresh start with education, publishing, promotion, travel, adventure, or sharing ideas, dear Sagittarius. At the same time, Jupiter’s retrograde turn signals the need to avoid taking on too much. The day’s energies are mixed but forward-looking. Unusual activities or those that take you out of your routine can be particularly beneficial in the week ahead. Publishing, sharing, and learning new things can be particularly favorable, leading to new beginnings and a breath of fresh air. Your spirit to explore, grow, and expand beyond the ordinary experiences in your life is powerful now. Today’s Mercury-Uranus square requires flexibility. You might need to adapt to a quicker pace or surprise elements and disorganization. It can be tense if you resist and dig in your heels. It may not be easy to get a word (or thought) in edgewise, but once past this, you might arrive at a new perspective on a project or interest.
CapricornYou can experience a real desire for positive change with the energies of today’s New Moon, dear Capricorn. You’re receiving a cosmic nudge toward sharing, supporting, and enjoying a relationship or project in more depth. New beginnings with shared finances or debts are in store. A fresh start in an intimate relationship or with a special passion project is also possible now. This New Moon can stir up a strong interest in learning about your needs, motivations, and deeper desires, and it could empower you to make significant lifestyle or psychological changes. You might aim to rid yourself of burdens or share their weight with someone special. Today, however, a Mercury-Uranus square can point to clashes of opinion or tension related to unreliability. Impatience can lead to moves or words you later want to take back. It’s still possible that useful ideas result from the mental detours you take today, and interesting conversations happen from a bit of chaos or disorder.
AquariusToday’s New Moon encourages you to start fresh in a close relationship or partnership, dear Aquarius. It’s about embracing a new approach to partnering or counseling and negotiating. New levels of understanding might open up in a relationship. There can be more hopefulness about a project or association, or you get the chance to enjoy a person’s perspective more fully. This New Moon can set the stage for a significant restart, new start, or new beginning in the relationship department. The week ahead can be a time to enhance a relationship, strike a deal, or connect. You might come to meaningful conclusions about your relationship needs. Still, today’s Mercury-Uranus square can produce mental stimulation that heads into tense territory. This aspect often brings an unexpected piece of news or result. Disorganized instructions or unnecessary distractions can frustrate you. Aim to enjoy the randomness of this energy rather than worrying too much about how things will resolve.
PiscesToday’s New Moon motivates you to take charge of your health, self-care initiatives, and work, dear Pisces. A project or goal may consume much of your attention, or you could be handling matters that help you get more organized and feel more in control of your life. This lunation brings take-charge, forward-looking energy to your work, services, health, and habits, setting the stage for new beginnings or a fresh approach in any of these areas. The desire to take better care of yourself or to do your personal best comes on strong! Organizing and improving your daily routines can be satisfying. New priorities and tasks to manage can figure strongly. Today, there can be nervous energy with Mercury and Uranus forming a square aspect. If you can tune into its rather random, eccentric theme and enjoy its surprise elements, you’ll be in good shape. Avoid overthinking things for best results, as you don’t need to let mental tension drag you down.
