Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe New Moon today reminds you of the need to recharge before moving forward, dear Aries. Even so, it’s also bringing you a fresh start, and there can be work to do regarding putting a long-standing problem behind you. You might instead become aware of the need for more rest and perhaps some seclusion or special attention to your private life. A new cycle of rest and replenishment is upon you. It’s a period of letting go, reviewing, and recharging your batteries, both spiritual and physical. Circumstances are such that they force your attention to your spiritual needs and mental health. A Venus-Neptune alignment also occurs now, and it strongly ties in with this New Moon, gaining more power. This transit can cast romantic or mysterious energy over the week. Something secret or private draws you in, or you view others in a compassionate light. Consider that you might over-idealize a situation, particularly a financial or romantic one. You see the subtler side of things and people. Making personal sacrifices seems to come naturally right now. There might be benefits coming your way from an unexpected source or joy felt for helping someone.
TaurusToday’s New Moon brings a symbolic fresh start, dear Taurus, and your ruler, Venus, aligning with Neptune is similarly fresh. This lunation brings 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 if you find yourself lacking in your social life, you can now feel ready to take charge. It can be a time of illumination or illusion with Neptune in alignment with Venus as well. You might approach a friendship issue from a new and likely more compassionate perspective. Your sympathies heighten, and it’s a good time to develop new ideas for long-term happiness goals. If there is a time for mending broken fences or for forgiveness, this is it. With today’s New Moon, this energy sticks with you in the week ahead. Aim to allow yourself to dream and imagine, but don’t expect inhuman feats from people in your life. You are especially appealing and perhaps a little mysterious to others, drawing attention.
GeminiThis is a time to reflect on recent events in your life and dream up long-term or career goals, dear Gemini. Today’s New Moon aligns with Venus and Neptune, adding a magical layer, and it occurs in your career and reputation sector. Career and manifestation are in the spotlight! There can be a pleasant feeling of reinvigoration regarding your life plan goals and subtle changes in your life with your influence or authority, career, status, or reputation. Business meetings or interviews can run well, with more openness and compassion expressed, but not necessarily strong on practicality or productivity. Otherwise, you see others in an idealistic way. You have high hopes about the direction you’re taking and more faith that things will fall into place, even without a definite plan. Fuelling you right now is inspiration. Of course, details will eventually need attention. Right now, it’s more about dreaming and imagining. Your mind is very open, so much so that you can feel overwhelmed with choices or possibilities.
CancerThe New Moon today brings a symbolic fresh start, dear Cancer. 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 and building confidence or inspiration that’s in the air now. This lunation also brings 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. A Venus-Neptune alignment helps you let go of unhealthy attachments and encourages a dreamy, idealistic view of your life. Although there is some tendency to idealize others or romanticize situations, it’s a great time for forgiveness, compassion, and new understanding. Aim to make peace with the past.
LeoThe New Moon can prompt a desire or need to turn over a new leaf, dear Leo. A setback or sudden awareness of your needs may inspire you to start fresh–you want to turn things around. A dependency or financial matter can figure strongly since this New Moon occurs in your solar eighth house. 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 in some manner. In the weeks ahead, you may resolve a long-standing problem related to money or love. The path may not be straight, but it gets you there! Opportunities to pool your resources or talents with someone or to share your load can emerge. A Venus-Neptune conjunction today encourages your imagination. You can see beauty in unusual places, and your intimate world expands. Some fuzziness is likely with understanding another person’s perspective. While you could feel as if you are re-awakening on some level, this Venus transit encourages you to stop and smell the roses.
VirgoToday’s New Moon points to a symbolic fresh start, dear Virgo, and changes are in the works. It occurs on the same day of a Venus-Neptune alignment in the same sign, and it’s quite magical. Even so, it’s better to reflect and intuit, taking natural time to begin anew. Negotiations and one-to-one relationships are in the spotlight. Issues of sharing, balancing, harmonizing, and partnership come to the fore. You’re gearing up to take charge. You’re likely to move in a new direction or towards a new, enlightened perspective, and can reinforce and stimulate recent feelings about a person, relationship, or partnership needs. You can feel inspired to do your best or pursue a dream upon a friend’s encouragement. On an emotional or creative level, you can be feeling quite refreshed, particularly through others. While you may be wearing the proverbial rose-colored glasses about a partner or a relationship, as long as you keep your feet on the ground, you can enjoy some inspiration. Somebody may be showing you special kindness, and your appeal is powerful.
LibraToday’s New Moon today can bring on a new beginning with work, health, or self-care, dear Libra. It’s a time for breathing new life into old routines or for approaching your daily life in a new, more inspired manner. A reinvigoration process begins now. It can be quite normal for an unsettled feeling about how you’ve managed your life, as it motivates you to make valuable changes with healthy routines or satisfying work schedules. Fuzzy thinking can be enjoyable with Venus and Neptune coming together, encouraging you to relax and escape the mundane. You can quite successfully bring more beauty, warmth, or imagination to your daily life. Personal magnetism, especially your mystique factor, runs high. Others are naturally drawn to you, but consider that you don’t have to answer all requests even if you are in high demand!
ScorpioToday’s New Moon sparks your creative juices and can highlight romantic inclinations, dear Scorpio. It brings out your need to celebrate, enjoy yourself, or express yourself. It can be a passionate time for you, and events occurring now can motivate the start or restart of a project, hobby, or your dating life. This New Moon is quite magical as it aligns with Venus and Neptune, and you can easily get caught up in fantasy. Your powers of attraction run high, and energies now inspire you to express your feelings or emotions in unique ways. Your tendency to glamorize, fantasize, or romanticize people, situations, and relationships can also be powerful. A new creative project begun in the week ahead can be most satisfying and successful. Keep everything in proportion for best results. It’s a fine time to find beauty in what you have and perfection in imperfections.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon highlights the need to pay special attention to your home base or personal life, dear Sagittarius, and to find ways to make improvements. Living arrangements and conditions might be overdue for a change, and now is the time to work some magic. Longings for more comfortable or ideal conditions in your personal life can figure strongly now. This New Moon occurs when Venus and Neptune align, helping to boost and extend this wonderful influence. It can be a time for dreaming up new ideas, particularly related to home life, harmony, comfort, and understanding. An escape from recent pressures seems appropriate now. Activities, particularly at home or with family, that engage your imagination are favored. You are also particularly creative and your artistic flair can come through in your domestic world. Transits now boost the value of comfort, beauty, and ambiance in your relationships. You’re birthing new long-term goals about comfort, domestic bliss, and happiness.
CapricornToday’s New Moon can motivate you to approach your daily tasks in new ways, dear Capricorn. You’re in line for a new beginning related to personal interests, studies, connecting, learning, or commuting. 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 occurs alongside a Venus-Neptune conjunction, encouraging you to see the beauty in your daily environment and your connections. News coming in, or a conversation you have, can be inspiring, forgiving, or relieving. You thrive most when your imagination is engaged now and this week, and you can thoroughly enjoy helping others or sharing ideas. It’s a fabulous time to attract through ideas, conversations, and words.
AquariusToday’s New Moon can prompt a fresh start with your finances, possessions, or issues of self-respect, dear Aquarius. You might also discover better ways to manage your money and things, and this particular lunation demands a highly creative approach–perhaps an unconventional one! It comes at a time when Venus aligns with Neptune, amping up your powers of attraction. The goal now should be to make more of what you have or to enjoy yourself more fully. Your dreams and fantasies or ideals are in stronger focus than usual. You crave understanding and appreciation, and you are particularly generous with others and perhaps yourself. This can be a day of inspiration along practical lines and greater compassion with others as you are quick to forgive. Your imagination is engaged, and you can enjoy a little escape from the routine. You might feel closer to someone who seems to share your values.
PiscesThis is a busy time, dear Pisces, but it’s also an important period for slowing down and connecting with your intuition. People are especially drawn to you and intrigued with you today as Venus meets Neptune in your sign, and the New Moon in Pisces presents a feeling of a fresh start. You’re making an interesting first impression! It’s a strong time for romance, attraction, and the creative arts. You are radiating healing, mysterious, and warm energy. 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.
