Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe desire to change, evolve, and improve is strong now, dear Aries. If you’ve been toying with the idea of making a lifestyle change, things may begin to come together after some starts and stops or delays. After today’s New Moon, you’ll be ready to take off and achieve your goals. How to deal with a money matter or predicament surrounding personal possessions or an intimate relationship will soon become apparent. You recognize the need to take better care of yourself and your resources at this time, and it’s a good move. A mission to gain more independence from debilitating debts or attachments can be in focus. Particularly regarding relationships, finances, self-worth, and respect, life seems to be showing you where you need to make changes and improvements. This is a time when forgiving others for slights can serve you well. Even so, today’s energies are tricky for relationships. Resentments might surface, and complicated feelings or interactions are possible. What emerges now can be an essential clue to your fears. If relationship dynamics seem out of balance, resolve to make adjustments. Watch for a tendency to go to extremes that interferes with healthy interactions.
TaurusAfter today’s New Moon, dear Taurus, this can be a remarkable period for blending your agenda with a significant other or for counseling and negotiating. You might bring a relationship to a new level or make a meaningful connection in the week ahead. This lunation favors a fresh start in a relationship and supports your social life, in general. Venus is forming challenging aspects right now. Nevertheless, you’re in a fine position to consider new ways to improve your satisfaction from your partnerships going forward. A new agreement or understanding, whether explicit or not, with a partner or friend can lift you up. You’re in a strong position to renew your relationships or freshen up your interactions. However, obsessive behavior is something to watch. There’s some tendency to dwell on negative emotions or difficult topics. There can be a lot going on under the surface of things, and you can be tempted to express yourself in indirect ways. It can be frustrating at best and destructive at worst, but also quite transient and manageable. An old hurt or resentment can be stirred or triggered. Rather than letting it rule your behavior, examine what’s emerging now and aim to put it behind you. You can learn a lot from the messy feelings that might arise now.
GeminiYou’re refueling with the energy and confidence to pursue new experiences now, dear Gemini. Today’s New Moon brings on the potential for a new beginning with work, health, diet, fitness, and habits. It’s a time for thinking up new methods and plans for self-improvement that excite you. This lunation brings the potential for a new beginning with work, health, diet, fitness, and habits. It’s an excellent period for making improvements to these areas of your life with a take-charge, fresh, and focused attitude in the weeks ahead. You’re motivated to put everything in order. The weeks ahead are favorable for beginning new health regimes and routines and for paying particular attention to your work. Watch today for dwelling on problems if you can help it. You’re likely to feel tested in areas of your life where you’re too attached for your own good. The desire to set a few things right in your life or to make adjustments is strong. Today’s energies are loaded or tense at times, however. Unhealthy attachments may become clear today. While this can feel a little uncomfortable, it also brings things into the light so that you can manage them rather than allow them to control you.
CancerYou’re more aware of your need to entertain, be entertained, celebrate, enjoy, and share yourself with others, dear Cancer, and doors are likely to start opening to do so. The New Moon today is particularly favorable for you, bringing powerful yet easy energy for self-expression, fun dalliances, creative pursuits, and romantic matters in the coming weeks. There can be improvements to your romantic life and possibly a new beginning. You’re likely to bring more confidence into your creative pursuits and hobbies. You are likely to attract positive attention from others now. Nevertheless, there can be some tensions today, and you could find that someone’s resisting or standing in your way. You might sense that someone is either holding back or trying to control or direct you. Those close to you can be very touchy and sensitive, and it can be easy for others to push your buttons. Focus on breaking out of old patterns of relating that haven’t been very successful in the past.
LeoWith today’s New Moon, dear Leo, you’re beginning to get into a goal-setting frame of mind. You might pick up or begin new projects or make resolutions to better organize your home life. This lunation can motivate you to make changes and improvements as you reorganize your personal life or shuffle around your priorities. Family and home-related activities can thrive as you advance. New or improved living conditions, the beginning of a new project on or in the home, or a renewed family connection can be expressions of this energy. You can experience a stronger craving for familiarity, comfort, and safety. You’d be wise to work on connecting with your needs for nurture. Even so, today’s energies are a little challenging. It’s all too easy for someone or something to trigger vulnerabilities or worries, especially about your work or health. Even the simplest of interactions can seem loaded. If you observe this happening, try to detach yourself from the situation and move back into it after you’ve gained some perspective.
VirgoYou’re beginning to feel more in the loop with retrogrades behind you and after today’s New Moon, dear Virgo. This puts you in a generally happier headspace. You’re more likely to find the information you need, share your ideas, and advance your studies or projects. There has been increased emphasis on busywork, errands, connecting, and learning these days, and today’s New Moon brings all of this together. You’re excited about projects or news. You might have a major project to work on, a new line of study you’re interested in, or a new goal for connecting with people around you. This New Moon helps you to focus on achieving what you want and need to do. Even so, you can experience some frustration today over personal finances, values, and ideas that seem to conflict with those of someone in your life or that stimulate fears. Keep your eye out for unhealthy attachments. There can be a possessive streak to manage, and if so, it’s more likely a symptom of something that runs deeper than the matter at hand. Fear of not having control over your life can lead you to hold on to things, people, and situations. Consciously allowing yourself to let go, even a little, can be helpful now.
LibraToday’s New Moon can prompt a sense of beginning anew in the week ahead, dear Libra. Soon enough, it can be a time of paying off a debt or meeting an obligation so that you can begin anew. This lunation has a way of reminding you of your practical priorities. From now on, you’re in a stronger position for taking charge of your finances, business, and sense of security. Stability, safety, respect, and physical comforts are in focus. There can be interesting developments or discoveries about your earning potential and your attachment to material things. Today, make it your goal not to make a mountain out of a molehill, but do acknowledge your feelings or trigger areas as Venus forms a square to Pluto. This aspect can stir up insecurities and fears or some conflict in your domestic life. If you feel that people are trying to manipulate you or that you need to resort to manipulation to get your way, examine things a little more closely. It’s important to avoid allowing worry or fear of loss of power to spoil your mood. Family or home life may very well need extra attention. However, also consider that you may be better off detaching just a little so that you can relax if you’ve been holding onto something too tightly.
ScorpioYou’re turning over a new leaf after today’s New Moon, dear Scorpio. You’re starting to feel that the ball is in your court. This can be a time of personal reinvention if you feel the need for a refreshing change. People see you a little differently, so aim to work this in your favor as much as you can. This New Moon can offer opportunities to make positive changes in your life in the coming weeks. You could feel motivated to commit to improvements related to mind, body, and spirit. You can enjoy more authentic self-expression. Challenging Venus aspects influence the day and the New Moon, and while they can be motivating on some level, they can require sensitive handling. Some feelings of discontent can lead to manipulative or disruptive behavior if you’re not careful. A tendency to dwell on the past can interfere with healthy interactions in the present. It’s probably better to address a problematic area head-on rather than let it fester, but choosing a time that’s not as loaded makes sense.
SagittariusWith today’s New Moon, dear Sagittarius, you’re in an excellent position to process recent events and find ways to put dysfunctional matters behind you. In so doing, you free up emotional space for inviting new energy into your life. This lunation can inspire a strong need for rest and replenishment. As you advance, you’ll be doing some soul-searching or taking care of spiritual needs and mental health more attentively. Your private life and inner world assume more importance. Today’s energies are somewhat complicated. There may be an issue surrounding values, money, or questions of ownership and boundaries that can produce some tension. There can be some indirect or roundabout activity that rubs you the wrong way. The day can be on the heavy side on an emotional plane. If you feel out of the loop, manipulating or controlling to get back in the game can seem appealing but won’t work in your favor. You’re much better off if you take the high road! A Venus-Pluto square active today can point to a situation that triggers a helpless feeling, but don’t allow fear or resentment drive your behavior. You’ll learn something valuable about yourself through your reactions.
CapricornWith today’s New Moon, a fresh start is possible when it comes to a friendship or group association in the week ahead, dear Capricorn. Team spirit is in the spotlight. A sense of belonging or the desire to contribute to something bigger than yourself can be important themes now. This is a time for feeling freer and happier as your knowledge of the world around you grows. This New Moon can reinvigorate your social life or your feeling of connectedness with others and hopes for the future. There might even be some drama in your social life that shakes things up and leads to changes. Today’s energies are complicated for interactions–there can be tension and competition in spots. It’s most likely felt with those in authority or in the world of business, although personal interactions can also be on the stressful side, perhaps even loaded. Keep all of your dealings above board and avoid the traps of game playing. While you can’t control how others approach situations, you can control how you respond, and sometimes the best response is no response at all.
AquariusAfter today’s New Moon, you have the power to reshape your reputation and professional goals in beneficial ways, dear Aquarius. New or renewed business plans and objectives are likely to take form. You could find yourself more visible or in demand in the week ahead. There can be pleasant surprises and advances, particularly related to life path goals. You’re seeking the best for yourself and believing in yourself. This New Moon can push long-term goals and performance to the top of your priority list. There can be changes in your life with your influence or authority, or with authority figures in your life, as well as status or reputation. Today’s energies are on the complicated side. You may need to let something go long enough to gain perspective. Watch for a tendency to emotional extremes. There could be some overreaction to little problems and minor events now, but these are likely symptoms of deeper issues. Be willing to face these issues with self-honesty for best results.
PiscesAfter today’s New Moon, dear Pisces, you’ll feel that you’re moving forward. This lunation stimulates your need for more spirited living and learning. Branching out mentally can be enriching and inspiring. Opportunities emerge to move outside of your routine and to feel re-energized and motivated as a result. This is a time for feeding your mind and spirit. It can be a challenge to keep a healthy distance from problem areas today, however. You’re not on the same wavelength with someone, or you receive mixed signals. Watch for the tendency to read a little too much into what’s happening around you. People probably do have hidden agendas, but it’s best not to focus too strongly on the negative. A Venus-Pluto aspect tends to stir up doubts and inner resentments or rumblings. Internal confusion about a relationship’s dynamics or depth can be the root of troubles now. If relatively simple problems work you up far more than expected, seek reasons rather than allow fears and frustrations to rule your mood.
