Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s New Moon occurs in your sector of communications and transportation, dear Aries, stirring a desire or need to make yourself heard. The urge to branch out, reach out to others, and add more variety to your life is with you now, in spades. There can be new transportation or learning opportunities in the weeks ahead. A breakdown or closing down of a mode of transportation or communication might prompt a need to do things differently with associated opportunities and new experiences. This New Moon also encourages you to put more of your personality into your interests, projects, and communications. Everyday affairs, news, and various errands or activities are likely to take up much of your time. You’re seeking more intelligent interactions and conversations or more interesting topics to explore. While Mercury remains retrograde for a bit longer (until June 3rd), this New Moon helps nudge or motivate you to make valuable, happy connections and contacts, learn new things, improve your skills, or develop unique ideas.
TaurusToday’s New Moon can bring on a potential new beginning on a financial level in the weeks ahead, dear Taurus. It occurs in your resources sector–an area of your solar 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 areas of your life, making this a good time for resolutions related to business, finances, and boosting your sense of security. It’s a great time to take special care of your money and valuables. If you’re looking to earn more, this can be a time to seek out new channels. Your natural talents are likely to be in demand, and you have a strong sense for using them resourcefully and to your advantage. This New Moon encourages you to put more energy into building your life in creative ways and fuels your enthusiasm for making yourself more secure and comfortable. With Mercury still retrograde for a few more days (until June 3rd), it’s wise to observe and take in, building up to new beginnings.
GeminiToday’s New Moon is in your sign, dear Gemini, pointing to a brand new beginning or a chance to reinvent yourself and start fresh. It’s a time of more personal presence and power, and it’s a theme that continues into June. Since your planetary ruler, Mercury, remains retrograde until June 3rd, take things slowly as you consider ways to renew yourself. 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 it’s also a good time to make some solid (and realistic) resolutions. A personal new beginning or a sense that you have a new lease on life is likely now. Make plans to pay more attention to your own needs and happiness during this period when some healthy self-focus is especially appropriate.
CancerIt’s probably best to take stock rather than begin all-new endeavors, dear Cancer. Now is the time for processing recent events and circumstances in your life, especially regarding how you deal with endings and how you manage your spiritual life and downtime. You may be saying goodbye to something, figuratively speaking, and clearing the decks for new beginnings with today’s New Moon in your solar twelfth house. It’s a time of the year for some soul-searching. This lunation has the power to push you on a new path of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment which can come in very handy when the Sun enters your sign on June 21st and you begin a new cycle. Getting comfortable with your inner needs and desires is a highly appropriate goal, and understanding and processing recent events are part of this.
LeoThere has been a strong and recent focus on your connections to friends and groups, dear Leo, and perhaps long-term goals as well. It can be an important time in your life for collaboration. The New Moon today brings the take-charge energy and motivation to make plans and the inspiration for developing different ideas and objectives. Mercury remains retrograde for several more days (until June 3rd), making it wise to wait before brand new beginnings, but you’re in great shape for planning things out. Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come through your interactions with, or support of, friends and associates. In the weeks ahead, there could be new connections, or you might breathe new life into existing relationships. You might also discover a new interest or revive a project that’s dear to your heart.
VirgoThe Sun’s transit of your solar tenth house of career, life path, responsibilities, and reputation has ignited your interest in your goals and ambitions, dear Virgo. Today, a New Moon in this area of your chart supplies you with the boost or motivation to improve, take charge of, and grow these things. This lunation prompts a fresh start to your approach to achieving your goals or even altogether new objectives and plans in the coming weeks. Breathing new life into a dream, project, or business can be in focus. Opportunities for improving your image or reputation can surface. You may come into the limelight or need to take charge. Responsibilities are in focus. Moving your work ahead is vital and refreshing, although taking things slowly while Mercury remains retrograde until June 3rd makes sense.
LibraToday’s New Moon acts as a charge, sending you in a new direction, dear Libra. You can feel inspired to enjoy 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 now. 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, and a stronger sense of purpose or meaning. Mercury remains retrograde until June 3rd, after which you gravitate to new initiatives that deepen your understanding of your life’s purpose and renew your spirit. Activities and experiences that take you out of your routine can be particularly refreshing. It can be a time for special interests or studies. You’re sharing your experiences and reaching out to or impacting more people.
ScorpioToday’s New Moon motivates you to start fresh, dear Scorpio. It brings more inspiration 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. You might work on trust issues or tackle power dynamics. The weeks ahead are strong for finding new and creative ways to connect with a partner, pay off debts, get a loan, or seek emotional support. This lunation can open doors for you to follow a passion. It can stir up a keen interest in learning about your own needs, motivations, and deeper desires, and it might empower you to make significant lifestyle or psychological changes. It can be a time for recognizing your inner strength and feeling more capable of bringing needed changes to your life. Take your time, however. It’s too soon to go hard with these things, so make plans. Aim to wait and see with new beginnings until after Mercury ends its retrograde on June 3rd.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon brings the need to begin anew, particularly with your relationships, dear Sagittarius. Indecision is still likely until June 3rd, but it’s a good time to observe and set intentions. This lunation can prompt fresh directions related to partnerships, pointing to a new or renewed connection in your life. It can be about fresh negotiations and a stronger feeling for what you want from (and can bring to) a relationship. You are in a good position to team up with someone, boost a current partnership, or benefit from counseling or consultations. Feedback and seeing your life from a different perspective can be helpful. You could discover new ways to bring more balance, harmony, and beauty into your life.
CapricornThere has been a stronger emphasis on routines, health, skills, chores, and work in your life, dear Capricorn, and today’s New Moon motivates you to put new initiatives into action in these areas. Mercury will be retrograde for a few more days (until June 3rd), and it makes sense to take things slowly but surely. Still, you can be excited about a project and program to improve your well-being in meaningful ways. It’s time to take better care of yourself, and improving daily routines can play a significant role. You could be loving what you do and bringing new, more creative energy to your work. There can be new tasks or priorities that invigorate you in the weeks ahead. If you pace yourself, you’ll get the plan right. Improved routines and attitudes towards your daily affairs can help reinvigorate your life.
AquariusToday’s New Moon invites you to find fun ways to connect with your inner child, dear Aquarius. It can also be a time for bringing back old hobbies and pastimes. New directions or beginnings related to creative projects, hobbies, romance, dating, and leisure time are in the cards. This lunation motivates you to seek more time to “play” or pursue creative and expressive activities. The pursuit of your passions is in focus in the weeks ahead. Consider making a resolution to listen to your heart, express yourself more openly, or enjoy leisure time more often. Opportunities can emerge for new or renewed romance or creative channels opening up. Mercury, the ruler of this area of your solar chart, remains retrograde for a few more days (until June 3rd), suggesting you take things slowly. However, it’s a great time to feel inspired.
PiscesToday’s New Moon can prompt a fresh approach or changes with living conditions, dear Pisces, life at home or with family, and getting the chance to cocoon, feel safe, and get comfortable. Attention to your needs for all that’s familiar is beneficial now and in the weeks ahead, and events happening at this time remind you of their importance. Unusual or previously buried desires can emerge that spur you to find new ways to express yourself on the domestic front. Getting in touch with your true feelings can be empowering, helping you make decisions in many different life “departments.” This New Moon can serve as a nudge to reconnect with yourself or check in with your feelings and comfort levels before pressing forward. You could also be quite motivated to start fresh with home projects or reorganize your living space. Take your time, however, with Mercury still retrograde until June 3rd, but feel and enjoy the inspiration and motivation.
