Some have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to,
when all they need is one reason why they can. -Martha Graham, dancer.
ARIES: The new moon highlights your second house of core values and sense of ‘wealth’. What is it, inner and outer, that makes your feel secure? Your ruler Mars moving forwards, finally, is your ally. Talk about inspired action. Take it!
TAURUS: This is your new moon, the one that lights up all four corners of your life, Self-expression, home, career and partnership. It’s the perfect time to set new intentions, putting energy into YOU and what you want to create. Happy Solar Return!
GEMINI: Taurus is your natural house of dreams and immersion in the collective. It’s a time of synchronicity, meaning and serendipitous connections. You will be generating new enthusiasm for a breakout solar year ahead. Muse, and create.
CANCER: Time to indulge in connections, friendships and links with like minded others. This energy wants tangible results so remember the ancient motto – to have a friend, be a friend. It’s your turn to bask in the cradle of collective love.
LEO: A month of public appearances, spotlight attention and new developments when it comes to your career, mission or profession. The key question is, are you doing what you love? The answer will define the rest of the year! Be honest.
VIRGO: Time to get out of the house, away from the computer and out into the world. You are primed to taste, touch and smell the sunrise, view the sights and hear every new sound. Travel, explore, expand. Point your feet in a new direction.
LIBRA: Joint partnerships, especially where finances are concerned, get a revamp. You decide how you want this to go. It’s time to get practical and stop relying on outmoded models for your shared resources. Intend for them to match your desires, and they will.
SCORPIO: One of your favorite new moons, Taurus puts the spotlight on relationship, especially sex and intimacy. No matter what is, or is not, happening in your life now, you take a moment to imagine it the way you want it to be. And so it begins . . .
SAGITTARIUS: All the taken for granted things of the household, studio, office, your pets, plants and plans, include gym and dietary wellbeing, are ready for new energy and attention. You put your mind to the ‘little things’ to make sweeping changes. Now!
CAPRICORN: A childlike creative impulse washes over you, infusing all you touch with smiles and laughter. Don’t be embarrassed! It’s natural for you to play right now. Set aside some time for fun, carefree expenditure of energy. You won’t regret it.
AQUARIUS: This new moon is your cue to put attention inward, into the home, family and sense of emotional ground and stability. Evaluate, appreciate and make repairs where necessary. This sets the stage for fabulous results. Trust the process.
PISCES: The new moon in your communications sector has you pulling in the etherial meanings and honing them down to practical implications. i.e., cut to the chase. Your words are powerful creators of your future. Say what you mean; mean what you say.
