Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s New Moon helps you start fresh with work, health, routines, wellness, and good habits, dear Aries. Circumstances are such that you’re inspired and motivated to begin anew with your health and wellness, physical healing, your job or chores, daily affairs, or pets. There can be new projects, assignments, priorities, and tasks to manage in the coming days or weeks. Inner stirrings can prompt a new approach to your daily affairs or the desire for something new from your routines. This can be an opportunity period for building better, more satisfying systems in your life. Avoid beginning too quickly, aiming to pace yourself. Transits today and tomorrow inspire your inventive side. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a stressful work situation, then the matter may come to a head in the upcoming weeks. Aim to keep your long-term goals in mind, but don’t let them overwhelm you, as this is a time of year for attention to the details that make achieving your larger goals possible.
TaurusToday’s New Moon brings fresh energy into your life, dear Taurus, especially for recreation, romantic relationships, and creative self-expression. You’ll be finding new and improved ways of pursuing your joy! It’s a time for turning over a new leaf, and current events can bring out your feelings, romantic inclinations, and creativity. You are more aware of your need to entertain, be entertained, celebrate, enjoy, and share yourself with others. Your personal magnetism also receives a nice boost. It can be a time to enjoy a new artistic focus or renew your interest in a hobby or creative activity. Those things, projects, and people holding you back from expressing your authentic creative self may be scrutinized. However, watch for a push-pull energy on a social level that can have you acting on a whim.
GeminiA New Moon occurs at the bottom of your solar chart today, dear Gemini, and it’s time for new energy and motivation to pour into your personal life, home, or family. Suppose you want to make changes on the home front. In that case, this is a powerful time for taking charge, whether it’s your physical home environment, domestic routines, family relationships, or your relationship with your inner self. Because this part of your chart represents your roots, what you do with these life departments touches almost everything you do. As such, positive changes you make in the week following this New Moon can reverberate nicely to other areas of your life. Still, matters of the heart, security, and comfort are now in focus, and innovative ways to improve things are yours for the taking.
CancerA New Moon occurs today, and it highlights communication skills, learning, mental outlook, and daily interactions and contacts, dear Cancer. The week or two ahead of you is strong for beginning a new project, especially one that involves writing, speaking, or learning. It’s a time to find new ways or different channels for expressing yourself or getting around and making connections. The ordinary and the humdrum are not very appealing to you right now, and you seek different approaches and experiences. Take the time to consider ways to incorporate more imagination and creativity into your daily life for the best results. You’re in a rather busy period with today’s New Moon awakening a need to reach out, learn, connect, and share. The day of a New Moon is too soon for pushing ahead, and especially with Mercury’s retrograde only ending tomorrow, it’s best to reflect and let a plan form as you go along.
LeoYour intuition is strong, dear Leo, with today’s New Moon occurring in the sector of your solar chart that rules your earning power, comfort, and security. You’ll be coming up with innovative or different approaches to your finances, income, personal resources, valuables, and self-worth. It’s time for a fresh start to how you deal with matters of usefulness, respect, and stability, and you’re likely to feel encouraged, inspired, and determined to make positive changes. A take-charge attitude can emerge from a feeling of lack, a dream, or sudden fear that you’re not on top of things–even from an event that reminds you of who or what you value most. Sometimes, feeling temporarily insecure about your situation is enough to motivate you to strengthen your position. While money management can be in focus with this lunation, it’s also a fantastic time for taking moments to enjoy earthy and grounding activities.
VirgoA New Moon occurs in your sign today, dear Virgo, making it a great time to reinvent yourself. You might experience this as a burst of energy and motivation to pursue personal goals and begin anew. A new way of expressing and presenting yourself might be in store in the coming days, and it can be exceptionally re-energizing. You’re encouraged, inspired, determined, and hopeful, and you’re bringing these attitudes into the world. Opportunities are likely to open up. Your drive to be counted, seen, and heard emerges in full force, and you might consider ways to update your approach, which can lead to a new beginning. Especially if you feel that others are not quite getting you or if your image is working against you, this is a time for setting things straight. Avoid rushing into new beginnings, aiming to pace yourself. If whims are taking hold, instead of following them, you might try to get to the reason underlying your restlessness and tension.
LibraThe New Moon today gives a gentle push to put the past behind you with plans, actions, or even symbolic actions, dear Libra. You’re tying up loose ends or dealing with secrets, private matters, and karma. It’s time to clear the slate! There is much going on behind the scenes or in the background of your life. Your dreaming world is vivid, and intuition exceptionally active at this time. Aim to listen to your inner voice, but take your time. Soon, you’ll feel more emotionally equipped to not only accept but embrace change and progress. This lunation might align with a form of retreat in a social sense or can merely point to increased soul-searching and the urge to find some emotional peace of mind. You can be very busy sorting through past experiences, seeking a point of resolution or closure. Today, it remains a better time for taking in than making big decisions.
ScorpioWith today’s New Moon, you’ll be moving in a new direction, dear Scorpio. This lunation highlights friendships, group connections, networking, long-term dreams and hopes, ideals, communications, and learning. There can be a new beginning or new or revised initiatives emerging in the week ahead, and making contact or teaming up can be in strong focus. You are discovering things that genuinely make you happy and have you feeling included and involved. If you’ve been dissatisfied with particular associations or find yourself lacking in your social life, the coming weeks are the time to take charge and make changes. It’s also a powerful time for new dreams and initiatives — you’re now planting the seeds of new projects or long-term goals.
SagittariusToday’s New Moon occurs at the top of your solar chart, dear Sagittarius, and points you in the direction of structuring your life in meaningful ways. This lunation clears the path for new beginnings on professional fronts. It gives you the confidence and motivation to take charge of career and life path goals, reputation, public image, and social standing issues. You may be developing new or improved business goals and plans or focusing on the bigger picture of your life and considering ways to better organize your life to achieve your objectives. You may be receiving particular attention for your efforts, work, or accomplishments in the week ahead. It’s certainly a good time to examine the elements of your personality that you are projecting to society and take charge of your life direction. However, it’s not the time to rush into new initiatives. Taking things one step at a time makes the most sense.
CapricornToday’s New Moon occurs in your adventure sector, dear Capricorn. With Mercury retrograde in the same area of your chart for another day, you have both forward- and backward-looking energy with you now, facilitating a broader vision than usual. Still, it will take a few days before a solid plan evolves. You’ll enjoy activities or projects that feed your thirst for out-of-the-ordinary experiences in the days and weeks ahead. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines of your life. Soon, you’ll pull yourself out of your shell and feel great for doing so, inspired to pursue new or “on hold” interests. Avoid making important decisions just for now. Instead, draw upon your intuition, which can serve you exceptionally well once the dust settles.
AquariusToday’s New Moon points to the chance to start fresh, dear Aquarius, as it activates a part of your solar chart that rules many of the things that go on behind closed doors or deep inside of you. It can stir up your need or desire for intimacy and closeness or a burning itch to get to the bottom of matters or absorb yourself in a special project or endeavor. Self-understanding may also be a goal now! The week ahead favors investigation, analysis, commitment, and research. It’s possible events alert you to the need to manage debt or deal with outstanding issues that have kept you from feeling empowered and in charge. Particularly when it comes to relationships, finances, self-worth, and respect, life shows you where you need to make changes and improvements now. Fortunately, it’s a powerful time to approach these life departments in new and improved–even innovative–ways.
PiscesToday’s New Moon prompts a need to start fresh in a partnership or with a relationship, dear Pisces, although it also encourages you to follow a goal or desire, which can all be related! Your vision for your relationship needs will begin to bloom and fill out, and someone can inspire you to pursue a dream. The desire or need to cooperate and merge with others is strong and motivating. Starting fresh in a relationship can involve taking on a new attitude or gathering the courage to make something happen. The weeks ahead are powerful for your connections, whether these unions are platonic, business, or romantic. You are challenged to find the right balance between partnership and independence. For now, it’s best to ease into new initiatives–there’s no need to rush or push things.
