Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s New Moon occurs in your sector of communications and transportation, dear Aries, stirring a desire to make yourself heard, initiate a new project, pursue a special interest, or start a course of study. The urge to branch out, reach out to others, and add more variety to your life is with you now. This cycle often brings the urge (or need) for new ways to get around or connect, and it can be a particularly busy time for daily affairs, errands, activities in the neighborhood, or gathering information. You may want to add more personality to your work or communications. Today, a Sun-Neptune square needs managing. Watch for a tendency to trick yourself into believing something that’s not very realistic. Hold back on the more involved decision-making, if possible, since judgment is cloudy temporarily. Conversations may be complicated, and thought patterns or problem-solving might frustrate you if you seek reliable answers. If you’ve denied yourself necessary rest, downtime, or spiritual sustenance, the side effects can emerge now. Remind yourself of the need to feed your imagination, spirit, and faith. It’s a busy time for you on a mental level, and you can have a hard time pulling yourself away, so it may be a good idea to consider creative, restful ways to engage your mind; this way, you reach a compromise.
TaurusToday’s New Moon occurs in your resources sector, dear Taurus, an area of your chart that holds dominion over money, talents, comfort, and security. 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, finances, and boosting your sense of security. You’re now motivated to care for your money and valuables. If you want to earn more, this can be a time to seek out new channels. Your natural talents can also be in demand, and you have a strong sense for using them resourcefully and to your advantage. However, first, you deal with a Sun-Neptune square today that isn’t ideal for clear thinking, especially involving money, but also with friends and emotions. Self-deception, where you might be seeing what you want to see, is a possibility now, but it’s also possible that others are evasive. Their unreliability may be an issue now, or you could be yearning for a more idyllic connection with someone, a group, or another special tie. While it’s important for you to focus on your practical affairs, you cannot ignore your more spiritual needs in the process, and today, there can be a reminder pointing you in this direction. You may very well discover a way to infuse more imagination and spirit into your business now.
GeminiToday’s New Moon is in your sign, dear Gemini, bringing powerful energy to your life for sweeping improvements. Others are taking notice of you, which can motivate you further to make efforts to be the best you can be. It’s an opportunity for renewal and a fine time to make some resolutions. This is a time of confidence boosts, changing the way you greet the world if this can benefit you, and taking charge of your life in crucial ways. Make plans to pay more attention to your own needs and happiness during this period when some healthy self-focus is especially appropriate. Your first mission, however, is facing today’s Sun-Neptune square. You could feel a little empty or discontented without a solid plan or definite course of action in place, but it’s important to be patient. You may need to take some extra time to get in better touch with your inner needs before going forward. It’s best to avoid pushing for answers or making stands today, as the results can be quite imperfect. If goals are too far-reaching or unclear now, take things a step at a time and set smaller, more realizable goals until you can sort things out.
CancerCurrent transits point to a time for processing recent events and circumstances in your life, dear Cancer, especially with how you manage your downtime or spiritual life. You may be clearing the decks for new beginnings with today’s New Moon falling in your solar twelfth house — a sector that rules the end of cycles and a deeper level of understanding. This lunation has the power to push you on a new path of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment which can come in handy when the Sun enters your sign on June 21st. Getting comfortable with your inner needs and desires can involve understanding and processing recent events. Today’s Sun-Neptune square is tricky, however. There can be a play on your perceptions and beliefs, and there may be the temptation to turn on the emotional blinders about a matter you don’t want to face just yet. While it’s best to avoid drawing conclusions for now, you should make the extra effort to avoid glossing over essential details as well. Try to assess a matter that seems too good to be true, or, alternatively, seems too unbelievable to hold weight, before banking on it now. Aspiring towards a goal is one thing, but if it prevents you from enjoying the moment, you may need to focus on something more practical.
LeoToday’s New Moon stirs your need to put a plan in motion, connect more satisfyingly with others, or find the inspiration for new ideas and goals to work towards, dear Leo. Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come from interactions with, or support of, friends and associates. You’re in great shape for collaboration in the week ahead. New friendships or breathing new life into existing connections can also figure strongly. You’re looking at people and your “place” with them in a new light. However, today’s Sun-Neptune presents a temporary blockage. You might struggle with what’s true and what may only be wishful thinking, particularly when it comes to emotional attachments, relationships, and finances. It’s not the time to be indiscriminate with your money, particularly when it comes to others handling it. Keep abreast of what’s going on with shared resources. Trust, of course, is important in a relationship, but sometimes others can slip. You might also need to draw some boundaries with people who may be pushing your limits.
VirgoToday’s New Moon supplies you with the boost or motivation to improve, take charge of, and grow a plan, project, or business, dear Virgo. Moving your work ahead can be invigorating in the week ahead, or opportunities to improve your image or reputation can surface. There may be new obligations, recognition, or a new position or endeavor. 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. First, you face a brief obstacle via today’s Sun-Neptune square. There can be fogginess or something left up in the air related to a relationship that impacts your career, ambitions, or general sense of life direction. If others have been overstepping their boundaries or uncertainty in your personal life has been slowly and steadily dragging you down, this can reach a breaking point today. You might face illusions or drains on your energy and resources that have blocked your progress and growth or that negatively impact the viability of dreams. Consider ways to better divide your attention going forward.
LibraToday’s New Moon can act as a charge, sending you in a new direction, dear Libra. In the coming week, you can be motivated to launch projects or activities that expand your mind, feed your spirit for adventure, and stretch your imagination. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life. Sharing your experiences with others, publishing, marketing, promotion, and studies can be in stronger focus. It’s an excellent time for an attitude change for the better, positive feelings, optimism, and a stronger sense of purpose or meaning. Still, today’s Sun-Neptune square presents a temporary block or could signal you need to put some plans on hold for now. This way, you can take better care of yourself and your needs for purpose, inspiration, imagination, and emotional fulfillment. A bit of chaos in your personal affairs can play with your schedule and delay plans altogether. On the other hand, if feeling overwhelmed or uncertain prevents you from taking a definite step forward, you feel in limbo. Disorganization or fatigue can get the better of you now. Consider that discontent may have its root in the need for more fulfilling, creative, or imaginative work.
ScorpioToday’s New Moon brings a new focus into your world, dear Scorpio, as well as more courage to pursue goals, especially related to self-mastery and improvement. Financial and intimate matters are in focus, and while there can be challenges and obstacles involved, a take-charge attitude is bound to emerge. This lunation sparks new beginnings, the stirring of desire, and fresh energy, and it occurs in the sector of your chart that rules intimacy, trust, bonding, and power dynamics. It also rules support, shared resources, and debts. The week ahead is strong for finding new ways to connect with a partner, pay off debts, get a loan, or seek emotional support. Take your time on this, however. It’s too soon to go hard with these things, so make plans. Today’s Sun-Neptune square can also slow you down. Confusing signals or a sense that things are up in the air can leave you feeling in limbo. If there is some wavering about going forward with a relationship or financial matter, perhaps it’s a sign to wait. Imagination is powerful now, possibly to the point of self-deception, but if harnessed in the right direction, you can be highly creative. This is a time for looking within and finding ways to better satisfy your needs for imagination, creative expression, and spiritual meaning, even if this temporarily takes you away from pursuing your more worldly goals.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon can prompt new beginnings or fresh directions related to your close relationships and partnerships, dear Sagittarius. This lunation can point to a new or renewed connection in your life, or it’s about fresh negotiations and a stronger feeling for what you want from (and can bring to) a relationship. You are in an excellent position to team up with someone, boost a current partnership, and benefit from counseling or consultations. The coming weeks are strong for appreciating the people close to you, partnering up to get things done faster or better, and opening up two-way conversations, negotiations, or consultations. But first, today’s Sun-Neptune square can feel draining, but you’re bound to refuel with new inspiration later. There can be some temporary confusion or uncertainty about your goals, relationships, or your next step. If you’ve been spending too much time with others or honoring others’ needs at the expense of your needs for solitude and personal comfort, you’ll feel the imbalance today. Some discontent is possible now. Emotionally complex relationships tend to be the most susceptible to ups and downs today–the more emotionally invested you are, the more prone you are to projection and disappointment. Let go of a need for definitive signs or answers, and you’ll be better off enjoying the moment and taking a pause that refreshes.
CapricornToday’s New Moon can bring a wonderful opportunity for new project or program launches that help you improve your wellbeing in vital ways, dear Capricorn. It’s time to take better care of yourself! Improving daily routines plays a big role in this. You could be loving what you do and bringing new, more creative, happier energy to your work. The coming weeks are strong for beginning a new wellness program or improving your daily affairs and habits. There can be new tasks or priorities that invigorate you. However, with today’s Sun-Neptune square, there can be some temporary confusion until you recognize your more intangible goals. The material world needs attention, of course, but if you’re not all there, you may be making mistakes now. It can be difficult to stay on course, but a rest or time for reflection is important. Aim to dream up possibilities, but wait for a clearer day for new initiatives or big steps.
AquariusToday’s New Moon points to new beginnings or directions related to creative projects, hobbies, romance, dating, or leisure time, dear Aquarius. It motivates you to seek more time to “play” or pursue creative and expressive activities. The pursuit of your passions is in focus in the week ahead. Consider making a resolution to listen to your heart, express yourself more openly, or enjoy leisure time more often. Creative, romantic, or recreational channels are likely to open up. Still, today’s Sun-Neptune square slows you down temporarily as it clouds perceptions. In truth, this transit encourages a look within for answers, yet we tend to look outside of ourselves for happiness, which can lead to disappointments. Wishful thinking can be at play now, and while it’s important to entertain possibilities and fantasy, it’s also best to discern the areas of life where you need to stay grounded. Watch for a tendency to look the other way if faced with money problems, or to borrow from the future to satisfy a temporary desire.
PiscesToday’s New Moon brings a strong focus on home and family in the coming week, dear Pisces. Unusual or previously buried desires can emerge that spur you to find new ways to express yourself on the domestic front. This lunation can get the fire burning to reorganize, take action, or otherwise revamp your personal life. If there are unexpected changes in your personal and home life, they’re designed to buffet you in a new direction. It’s “out with the old and in with the new” as you turn over a new leaf. Today, however, you may be swinging from being overly optimistic to feeling let down, and the truth lies somewhere in between. The Sun and your ruler, Neptune, form a square, and this influence can temporarily challenge your goals or even your confidence. If you haven’t paid enough attention to your spiritual and emotional needs lately, you could feel drained or lacking in direction. The key to taming inner restlessness is to truly understand what is causing the dissatisfaction. This involves digging deep, as many of the reasons we give ourselves for dissatisfaction are superficial and temporary. You may feel left out or disappointed until you recognize your true needs.
