Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesTensions this week can prompt the need for a fresh start or brand new approach with partnerships, close connections, negotiations, and relationship goals, dear Aries. Today’s New Moon can help clear the slate. How you deal with others, negotiate, and compromise is transforming in ways that serve you better. You’ll be turning over a new leaf in your social life, and especially with a close connection. It may involve some conflict or clashing, but the goal is to get things out into the open and work on appreciating one another more often. You are challenged to find the right balance between partnership and independence. Reacting is easy, but learning from your experiences is the smart thing to do now. Your instincts are strong, but you need to act mindfully. Today’s energies are also good for seeing your life direction or career matters in a creative yet structured way. Ideas related to work or finances can be especially wise now. You are better able to see what is valuable and worth your effort, and what isn’t.
TaurusWhile frustrations with your routines, health, or work can magnify this week, dear Taurus, they also motivate you to make a fresh start. Today’s New Moon can bring a fresh start feel to your life. A sense of discouragement or disillusionment can lead to a strong desire to make improvements. You’ll pay special attention to getting things right, fixing errors, and sorting things out in the days ahead. It’s not the time to push something big. Instead, look at the details and get the smaller, essential jobs out of the way. This cycle is about getting on top of daily schedules and routines and taking better care of your everyday life. It’s important to pace yourself so that you don’t burn out quickly. It’s a good time to bump up a health pursuit, organize your affairs, and improve your skills or methods. There is wonderful energy for others noticing and appreciating you for your unique qualities today.
GeminiToday’s New Moon ushers in a new beginning with love, romance, creativity, pleasure, entertainment, or leisure, dear Gemini. There can be tensions stirred this week, particularly with friends, groups, or associates, and you’ll have to do some juggling. Even so, the central focus should be on getting your personal life in order. Innovative ideas can take seed now. You’ll want to start fresh, whether it’s with a project, approach, attitude, or relationship dynamics. There can be a new commitment to improving your outlook. You might enjoy a new artistic focus or renew interest in a hobby or creative activity. New opportunities or channels for expressing and enjoying yourself can open up to you. Today’s energies are also strong for getting into deeper touch with your inner needs and desires. It’s a good time to get your emotional bearings.
CancerThe ability to see both sides of a situation can come in handy today, dear Cancer. Your advice on relationships can be sought and valued now. Learning endeavors are especially favored, as you recognize patterns. Sharing ideas can be satisfying today. A New Moon occurs today, setting a theme for the coming weeks. It falls your home, family, and heart sector, motivating you to take the lead or start fresh in your personal life and with your relationship to your inner world. You might pick up or begin new home projects or make resolutions to better organize your home life in the weeks ahead. Matters of the heart, security, and comfort come to the fore. There can be tensions stirred now, particularly on the professional front or regarding responsibilities and reputation or performance. Feelings of being divided or tense can motivate you to make improvements. You’ll have to do some juggling, but the central focus should be on getting your personal/home life in order.
LeoToday’s New Moon can usher in a new beginning, dear Leo, particularly with your daily affairs, communications, contacts, and personal interests. There can be tensions stirred with opinions and ideas, and disagreements can arise. Social pressures are also on you now. You’ll have to do some juggling, but the central focus should be on getting your daily affairs in order. This new cycle of growth is about making connections, reaching out to others, and learning new things–a busy time is ahead of you. You might breathe new life into work-in-progress or an old idea/project. Catching up or staying connected is likely to boost your morale as you feel good about yourself and your contributions. This can be an active cycle for writing, speaking, and schooling. Today’s energies are good for categorizing, sorting, and organizing. You might spot a great deal or come up with a unique business idea. Coming to the aid of people in your life can be rewarding. It can be a good day to see new ways of doing things that improve or make your life a little more enjoyable.
VirgoYou may be putting more than usual energy and effort into your creations, dear Virgo, and expressing your beliefs and ideas with enthusiasm. Connecting with someone special through perspectives or beliefs can figure strongly. After today’s New Moon, you’re likely to realize the need for a fresh start/approach with money, income, valuables, self-esteem, or comfort matters in the days ahead. There can be tensions stirred now, particularly with funds owed, intimacy, or support, but these things can motivate you to improve and grow. You’ll have to do some juggling while the primary focus is on getting your financial life in order. It may not feel so initially, but you’re in a good position to take charge of the material side of your life. The focus can be on a business, project, money-making idea, savings account, or budget — anything that helps you build and take charge of your resources. Life may feel a little chaotic now, but it’s all about stimulating positive change.
LibraYour special wisdom comes from self-awareness and self-knowledge, dear Libra. Enthusiasm for emotional understanding is with you, which may inspire others in your life to open up and connect with you. Intimate, private, and domestic matters are in positive focus. Also today, a New Moon occurs in your sign. While you’re still reflecting and considering your next step, you have more power than usual to take charge and make an impact in the days ahead. This is a time for a new beginning of sorts. It’s likely to cause a few ripples on the home front or with family. Still, it’s a good time to resolve to leave a bad situation behind you, mainly related to money matters and relationships. If you’ve had the feeling of being in the background, overlooked, or ignored, you’ll want to make changes now. You can be turning over a new leaf, even though there can be some challenges juggling everything you want to accomplish. Try not to move too quickly now as you risk a state of burn-out before you really get started.
ScorpioToday’s New Moon can motivate a fresh start for your relationship with endings and closure, rest, regeneration, and emotional healing, dear Scorpio. It’s time to allow yourself time to detox, process, and digest. However, tensions can be stirred, particularly on the work front or related to chores, duties, health, and self-care efforts. Social pressures are also on you now. You’ll have to do some juggling, but the major focus should be on getting your inner world and private life in order. This New Moon gives you a boost of energy for tying up loose ends, closing up projects, dealing with private matters, and taking better care of your emotional health. Events and realizations occurring now remind you to slow down. You’re in an excellent position to process recent events and find ways to put dysfunctional matters behind you. This way, you free up emotional space for inviting new energy into your life later. Today’s energies are good for socializing. Even with Mercury retrograde in your sign, it’s a decent time to share, reach out, and communicate. You can be excited to apply yourself to a personal interest or learning endeavor.
SagittariusThe New Moon today points to a new cycle and fresh start in your social life or with happiness goals, causes, and projects, dear Sagittarius. There can be tensions stirred in your personal life, and you’ll have to do some juggling, but the central focus should be on getting your social life in order. You can be called upon to become more involved or contribute, and you’re seeking some inspiration. Cooperation and delegating make the most sense at this time, bringing rewards. Your motivation increases for reaching out to others or making important changes with a friend, group connection, or goal. Aims and aspirations that improve your optimism and mental state are in the spotlight. Today’s energies highlight your special wisdom regarding how to best use your resources or talents. The need to put things into their proper places can be strong, as you feel empowered by organization.
CapricornToday’s New Moon energy can usher in a new beginning on the career front, dear Capricorn, or regarding your status, responsibilities, and life path goals. Your relationship with higher-ups can also be in focus. You’ll still need to pay attention to personal matters, and social pressures are strong these days, requiring some juggling. However, recognition and reward can be in the cards for you once you get things sorted. Business and career matters, or decisions about significant crossroads and life paths or direction, can be in focus now. You begin to feel more goal-oriented and ready to take charge. Today’s energies are strong for creative connections or romance. You may be in the position to defend a truth, ideal, or person, or you can feel especially enthusiastic about a friendship or learning endeavor. Your own inspired approach tends to inspire others.
AquariusYour perspective or belief system is changing, dear Aquarius. You recognize the need to live your life more fully, although restlessness can predominate until you find your way. Today’s New Moon can inspire you to seek a sense of mission or purpose regarding learning new things, broadening your horizons, reaching a little higher for your goals, publishing, or promotion. It can serve as a powerful motivator through events and discoveries to take a fresh approach to learning and living. You can feel quite inspired to pursue new or “on hold” interests. However, the road to new beginnings is not a particularly easy one, as there can be some distractions and obstacles to manage. Today, the desire to take care of loved ones can be motivating. There is wisdom to your spiritual ideas, and others might seek your advice. Feeling in harmony on a deep level can be satisfying now.
PiscesToday’s New Moon can serve as an important prompt to get a handle on your intimate or financial life, dear Pisces. Retrograde Mercury will return to your intimacy sector on the 27th, and if problems are re-emerging, then it’s time to look at them a little differently, perhaps by seeing more details or looking at the larger perspective. The New Moon can stir up your need or desire for intimacy and closeness, a burning itch to get to the bottom of matters, or the goal of self-understanding. Events occurring now alert you to the need to manage debt or deal with outstanding issues that keep you from feeling empowered and in charge. Particularly when it comes to relationships, finances, self-worth, and respect, life seems to be showing you where you need to make changes and improvements. Today, you can take great pleasure in organizing and planning.
