Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can have a new mission related to companionship, relationship needs, and goals with today’s New Moon, dear Aries. Someone may be bringing out strong feelings and desires in you, and conflicts entered into now may serve as a valuable reflection of your own desires for action and reaction. Or, someone might encourage you to take action. This New Moon brings a burst of energy in the direction of close relationships, and partnerships in particular! You might move a relationship to a new level or make a powerful connection with someone. There can be some impulsiveness today, so it would be wise to distinguish between making changes for the sake of change, and making changes that will genuinely propel you forward on an improved path. Your instincts are strong, but it’s best to act mindfully. Today, sorting out problems related to income can be necessary, as it can help clear the path for new beginnings in your relationships.
TaurusYou can feel a strong need to start fresh with a new exercise or nutrition regime or a new work project, dear Taurus, with today’s New Moon in your solar sixth house. It can stir the need for new beginnings with your job, work, chores, daily routines, habits, health, and self-care programs. You’re motivated, courageous, and likely quite heavily invested in making improvements. You can experience a great impulse to get organized or in shape. Watch for impatience, arrogance, and ego getting in the way–instead, encourage your initiative, bravery, drive, and vigor. It may be that you need to wait for an answer or information before starting fresh, and it’s best not to rush things. While you have a powerful desire or need to pay more attention to details, work, or health, these things can sometimes interfere with your feelings of freedom and independence. This dilemma can be prominent today. Working on finding a balance can help you tremendously with turning over a new leaf.
GeminiToday’s New Moon can unearth a strong desire or need to start fresh with romance, joy, entertainment, love, dating, leisure, or hobbies, dear Gemini. You might discover sides to your personality, new needs, or new channels for expressing and enjoying yourself. These areas of life can be stimulating, animated, thrilling, or tense! It’s a fantastic time to follow your passions, but do so mindfully, and be sure you know what they are! Watch for false starts and hasty moves since Mercury is retrograde. You may be holding onto something from the past that’s taking up psychic space–space you might instead reserve for allowing something new and happy to enter your life.
CancerA new project or approach to your personal affairs and home life is in order with today’s New Moon, dear Cancer. New beginnings and a fresh start relate to family, home life, long-term investments/ business, comfort, and safety. You can feel raring to go but should probably watch for impulsiveness or prematurity. Consider that Mercury is retrograde, and while you can be revving up now, you may not have all the information you need to push ahead. You might return to an old project or problem, or your personal or home life can be very busy or even hectic, as something is up in the air. Today, you may be feeling conflicted about whether to move out of your comfort zone or stick with who/what you know. This can give you pause. Take things slow and steady.
LeoToday’s New Moon can prompt the desire or need for new beginnings, dear Leo. With this lunation occurring in your solar third house, fresh starts can relate to communications, studies, learning, connecting, and transportation. New channels for expressing yourself, making contact, or getting out and about can open up. Your enthusiasm to get things done, succeed, and excel is through the roof in the next few days. Do watch for impatience, and try not to voice your unsatisfied desires if they’ve come on very suddenly — give them time. This new growth cycle 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 boosts your morale. It can be an active cycle for writing, speaking, and schooling. Today, you may need to compartmentalize rather than attempt to juggle everything you want to accomplish.
VirgoToday’s New Moon occurs in your sector of resources, money, talents, and personal possessions, dear Virgo. As such, it’s a time for new beginnings related to money and self-worth. You’re highly dynamic and motivated, and a fresh approach to your finances and things is in order. Still, Mercury is retrograde, and haste makes waste. It’s best to observe, plan, and edit. You could be waiting for more information before pushing ahead. It could be a good time to revisit old ideas and update them, and the review of past purchases or budgets can be helpful. 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 an excellent 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. There is a tendency to feel a little torn between the promise of life experience and the appeal of getting down to business today.
LibraToday’s New Moon can feel intense and stirring, dear Libra. It’s about personal reinvention, new personal beginnings, health and body issues, attitudes, and manner, and you can get quite revved up about making changes. Taking charge, taking the lead, and being straightforward are themes. Mental energy is abundant but perhaps stifled or misdirected in spots, making it a good idea to watch for offhand or unintentionally insensitive remarks and impulsive actions. Some backtracking or frustration can serve as a push to clear the decks for new beginnings. 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. Watch for a tendency to put yourself on the defensive today.
ScorpioWith today’s New Moon, dear Scorpio, you can feel as if you’re unblocking and unburdening. It would be best if you had extra rest or attention to putting old problems behind you. Feelings about the past or a private matter can be complicated, and you can have a sudden surge of desire to put a problem behind you. This lunation can motivate a fresh start with endings, closure, rest, regeneration, or emotional healing. It would help if you had time to detox, process, and digest. You’ll have to do some juggling, but the central focus should be on getting your inner world and private life in order. Events and realizations occurring now remind you to slow down. Today, someone can throw you off-center with their actions, remind you of the past, or leave you feeling a tad insecure. Do your best not to take things to heart.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon occurs in your sector of friends, hopes, and dreams, dear Sagittarius. There can be a strong sense of beginning anew, mainly related to friends and collaborations and the beginning steps involved with fulfilling a long-term dream. You can experience some excitement about new prospects, friendships, or ventures. It’s easy for you to get quite fired up about issues close to your heart. It’s a time of motivation, new hope, and beginnings related to friendship, business income, happiness goals, networks, and community or group involvement. It’s best to allow time to receive and process new information along these lines. With its alignment to Mars and retrograde Mercury, this New Moon can come on strong and seem to demand a fast answer, yet all the information you want or need isn’t yet available. 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. Today, worries about work can seep into your personal or social life, however, and it’s not easy to enjoy yourself as a result. If you can find a way to enjoy a creative escape from stress, you’ll be in far better shape.
CapricornToday’s New Moon occurs in your solar tenth house, dear Capricorn. It brings a fresh start relating to your career, reputation, responsibilities, performance, leadership skills, and life path goals. This New Moon is about starting anew–you’re ambitious, ready to take charge or take the lead. The desire is to stay on top of matters and reach for something better. However, be careful that you don’t push something or someone too hard or too quickly. Draw upon the courage and initiative of this time, and avoid the impatient or egocentric side of current transits. Looking back before you move forward is likely with retrograde Mercury involved. 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. Today, adjustments may be necessary for dealing with a boss, parent, or family member, but doing so helps you start fresh.
AquariusToday’s New Moon can fill you with take-charge energy, dear Aquarius. New beginnings are in store regarding personal interests, education, beliefs, mental outlook, publishing, promotion, sharing ideas, personal philosophy, travel, and other ways of broadening your views and life experiences. Your ambitions fire up, and you can be excited to learn, perhaps to gain a competitive edge. It’s a great time to pour energy into a project that gets you somewhere, and you’re in a great position to tear down obstacles in your path and solve problems. However, with retrograde Mercury involved, you may need to look back before pushing forward. You may need to correct technical problems or deal with delays or confusion. You can feel quite inspired to pursue new or “on hold” interests. However, the road to new beginnings is not easy, as there can be some distractions and obstacles to manage. Concerns about family or your insecurities can prevent you from straying too far from your routine today, yet you instinctively need to get away from it all. Working on satisfying your needs for both familiarity and exploration helps clear the path for new beginnings.
PiscesWith the energies of today’s New Moon, dear Pisces, there can be new beginnings with shared finances, debts, obligations, support, intimate matters, personal psychology, ownership matters. You’re super motivated to improve these life departments. The desire to feel more in control of your life or empowered can take hold, and you seem to have the courage to make changes or take action to match. A new business, money, or intimate relationship may emerge, but you’re looking back before going forward with retrograde Mercury involved. Events now alert you to the need to manage debt or deal with outstanding issues that keep you from feeling empowered. Particularly with relationships, finances, self-worth, and respect, life seems to be showing you where you need to make changes and improvements. Today, try not to allow misunderstandings or discrepancies to negatively impact your day. Still, if a tricky matter does surface, don’t shy away from it altogether, or you are likely to meet it again in the future in a more significant way since problems have a way of accumulating.
