  • Gravitate towards sources of comfort, and your domestic side, resetting the dial – pull back from the world to think about your intentions moving forwards for a cosy, secure space – this might mean redecorating or moving, or it might mean you want to redefine the people around you that are your true family. You get to choose, so be honest – and generous – with your heart.

  • Be mindful too, that the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus in your own sign, which could have you resistant, (stubborn,) or rebellious – going your own way despite a need to touch base at home.

GEMINI

  • Think of the strings you wish to add to your bow, the stories you hope to tell, the books you’re keen to read – the library or local club you want to join – the social media quips you’re keen to master! How might you add drama and flair to your words? Perhaps there’s a creative energy or a tone of ‘the performer’ that will help inspire your ideas!

Relationships…

  • This New Moon your chatty third house of close ties & neighbours is spotlighted, so you could be feeling enthusiastic, inspired, in the mood to heartily express yourself, tuned in to news, dealings, gossip and even act as a reporter, articulate and plugged-in. Ruminate on ways you speak, and what you want others to hear, how they might listen to what you have to say.
  • This sector also points you toward your siblings and relatives, to shorts trips and kindred spirits – is it time to carve out space to see your inner circle and family a bit more? Note immediate exchanges, and what’s on your mind…

Growth Opportunities…

  • Lend the full force of your attention to your inner circle, with your ruler Mercury in Leo and the New Moon seeding bright ideas to connect – grab coffee with those you want to be looped in with, or download smart apps.
  • You can create impact in local places, verbalizing thoughts to those in your environment. Just be mindful Jupiter and Saturn are in opposite sign Aquarius, and your educational zone of long-distance journeys, quests, knowledge and worldly expansion urges you to take into account broader horizons and wisdom.
  • Find balance between familiar voices and conversational avenues you relate to, and long-term shifts that push you to see life from a fresh perspective…

CANCER

  • The New Moon in Leo touches on fiscal affairs, the subject of monies, belongings and personal wealth – the way you make a living, tend to the material realms & the task of earning, contributing, taking pride in all you do.
  • It’s a remarkable time to plan what you would buy and how you might derive an income from your talents! Imagine new money-making ventures or what position you’d like to uphold, ideally, note what you have in hand – in stock.
  • Manifest what you’re keen to attain through cash, coin, cheque or prized winnings – or a reward & valuable asset that’s gifted because you’re you!!!

Relationships…

  • Take pride in your possessions (both material and immaterial, tangible and intangible), with your celestial guide, the Moon, in your house of self-worth.
  • Yet note the duo (Jupiter and Saturn) slowly tracing through your eighth house ensures you’ll not forget where you’ve pledged your time, energy, money or resources to partners…
  • Friends, allies, work associates or your tribe of peers in your network also add tension at this time, complicating mergers, unification and formal commitments to those you encounter at a more intimate level…

Growth Opportunities…

  • Your finances, personal assets and attributes, and material gains are spotlighted with the New Moon in your money zone, so you could be enthusiastic and focused on your own role, position, job or spending, feeling inspired to build, develop, and tackle your salary, and what’s yours alone.
  • However, Jupiter and Saturn are in opposite sign Aquarius, and your sector of jointly held resources and shared responsibilities, assets, loans, debts and personal obligations (to another), so while it’s a compelling time to think of your own self-possession and ways to build up your own
  • Be mindful too, that the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your community interests…

LEO

  • The vibrant New Moon in your sign rouses your individuality, charisma and prowess, Leo – assert your best qualities and shine with magnanimous star power, confidence and generous spirit.
  • Start something new that circles round to your own life and interests; from a creative project, an invocation of self-betterment, to a plan that invites even greater passion into your world, talk and think it through with number one in mind. Relish the opportunity to make it all about you (and your needs).
  • Expect a flicker to burst into flames of enthusiasm!

Relationships…

  • This New Moon is the most personal of the year, Leo, with a new beginning just for you – allow others to appreciate your special presence and persona.

  • You might find you’re contemplating how you might create space for yourself and your own needs, while also growing a sense of respect, reverence and appreciation of the gravitas to be experienced in one-to-ones…

Growth Opportunities…

  • Embrace your intentions, your presence, sunny flair and the first impression you typically make, as you walk out the door to meet and greet your subjects.
  • Be mindful however, that the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your public image, career trajectory and reputation.
  • Try to see what’s for you, for personal satisfaction and authenticity, and shifts or tremors that help you align with your goals and ambitions (to be noticed by those that would give you the title, nod of approval or praise that affirms a job well done, or notions of success). Any resistance will be futile!

VIRGO

  • The New Moon could draw you into solitude, quiet, and peaceful surrender, in your understated twelfth house of gestation – the silent observation room, and psychic zone of unknown, mysterious activity.
  • It’s a time to listen to your unconscious, to address things long buried or avoided, to give yourself over to a selfless cause or charitable endeavour – helping a loved one stay on top of things, showing enthusiasm for an elusive dream or simply stepping back to practice self-care, going inwards to rewrite your story in a cathartic process, which could be dramatic…
  • Face all that’s been building, in smouldering fashion, that’s hard to handle or grapple with. Embrace transformation, pulling away from the world to tend to your inner wellbeing.

Relationships…

  • With your ruler Mercury in Leo and the New Moon seeding bright ideas to transition, and find closure, take time out to identify those connections that simply aren’t serving you, Virgo. Let them go.
  • Uranus is encouraging you to revolutionize, challenge or change your outlook, perspective and beliefs, with paths to education (and people sent to teach you) that make it hard to hide and disappear from view…

Growth Opportunities…

  • With the Luminaries lighting up your privacy zone and the secretive house of endings, it’s a time to take a break from socializing, and retreat – gift yourself alone time; retreat, rest or gaze on from the sidelines with relief in solitude.
  • You might find you’re sitting in anticipation of a fresh start, in limbo – and in the dark – waiting and watching. Hone in on hidden agendas, unconscious patterns, and untoward impulses that come up. Withdraw behind the scenes.
  • Yet note, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius and your busy sixth house want you to keep a hand in the positive practices that make up your everyday regime, structures or maintenance boosting your health and wellbeing.

LIBRA

  • The New Moon touches on your social life and community affairs, highlighting all that brings you together as a group. Lay claim to a new beginning for friendship, for the common hopes, dreams, and connection you share that brings warmth, laughter and camaraderie (in your industry, company, circle of peers, or another team setting).
  • Plan how you might meet new people, attract cheerleaders or expand your reach, consider your intentions among friends, ways you might band together to create something stellar: from a community art mural to a drama or stage production! Sign up with confidence and charisma! It’s possible networking opportunities present themselves – talk to those online and those that cross your path – tease out your interest in others!

Relationships…

  • Your eleventh house of allies, acquaintances, and associations plays host to Sun, Moon and Mercury, giving you an opportunity to think of what you hope to gain by considering the masses: your district, city or town, or your industry, network or peers… Who are you affiliated with, Libra? And what causes would you gladly get behind with others on side?
  • Be mindful, as the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your intimate commitments and joint collaborations, inserting an erratic tone to your private dealings. What’s more, Jupiter and Saturn in your house of children, love, romance and self-expression are urging you to keep tabs on your solo interests – all that you feel passionately about.
  • Bring focus and attention to team spirit, while remembering your own routes to happiness, too…

Growth Opportunities…

  • Look to your co-workers and the collective this Leo New Moon, the people you relate to in the world because of a commonality – an interest or passion that brings you together as a network, online, or a real-life clan.
  • Perhaps you’re a music lover, a fan of basketball, or maybe you stand for a principle that breeds a sense of belonging among your fellow man. Who are your friends? Who can you assume will flash you a smile, without even knowing you? Breed confidence in your peers as you make your way, trusting you’ve a sunny social set – ask what more can be accomplished by your crowd or clan, or who you need as a member of your squad…

SCORPIO

  • The New Moon in Leo touches on your prominence, notions of success and even fame – this could be an ambitious time for new beginnings and fresh starts around how you’re seen.
  • Elevate your own notoriety, prestige and sing loud about your accomplishments, too! Let the world know what you can do (in your trade) and show that you’re ready to take on a new challenge.
  • Climb the ladder, visualizing the spotlight now lands at the top of the tree, so you might persevere towards your goals & aspirations! Make an impression in the public eye, strong and capable, confident and magnanimous, sights set on what’s next for you professionally…

Relationships…

  • Be mindful – the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up notions of partnership, and how you respond or react to others one-on-one.
  • Your bid as an authority, or to claim the crown, seen, making a name for yourself, gaining praise and validation might not chime easily with one key relationship. To placate a partner, it’s easier to be seen mingling, networking and being a part of a friendly crowd, rather than letting on how much you’re thinking about your career, status or standing…

Growth Opportunities…

  • The warm, generous Leo Sun, sensitive Moon, and dramatically dressed communicator Mercury allow you to show up and shine in your outwards facing persona, with free reign to wear the crown and take the title, to focus on the pursuit of recognition and success – whatever that means to you.
  • Yet with Jupiter and Saturn in your domestic fourth house of home, and security, your reputation (and impressing a boss or superior) may have to take into account the growth that’s blossoming underfoot.
  • Notice plans to root yourself and expand on your nest or family size, to add structure to your foundations or establish a sense of self-care – does a professional win fit with hidden personal agendas and nesting tendencies?

SAGITTARIUS

  • The warm, sunny New Moon in fellow fire sign Leo touches on fresh pursuits – projects, plans and ventures that open you up to visionary ideas and new ways of thinking. You might want to sign up to a school or to education, and higher learning, to explore fresh horizons & discover something meaningful.
  • Notice specialist subjects that stand out and appeal; it’s a remarkable time to bolster (global) connections, and travel(!) so give yourself time to brainstorm who you might meet, all you’ll discover – the places you’ll go!

Relationships…

  • Relish the opportunity to connect to people overseas – in unknown territory or kingdoms faraway – to share your work, to journal, publish, teach, or to develop and grow your perspective through talking with others.
  • Listen to another person’s outlook and embrace a foreign or culturally different stance. Open up to experiences with those you meet who are adventurous (and bring out your natural tendency to go the distance).
  • Venture out, philosophical, seeking answers on your own quest or journey.

Growth Opportunities…

  • Highlight your pathway to the truth – the (yellow brick) road that lies ahead, leading you to your true philosophy, the faith or educational course that tracks well with you. You can now pivot in direction, embracing new knowledge.
  • Just be mindful that your ruling planet Jupiter accompanies Saturn in opposite sign Aquarius, and your third house of (basic) communication skills, navigation, neighbours and local connection, urging you to keep listening to those around you. Pay attention to big dreams, opportunities and the more preliminary conversations taking place…
  • Be mindful too, that the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your working processes, your diet, regime or some facet of your day-to-day duties that’s now changed.

CAPRICORN

  • The New Moon in Leo touches on your energy, resources, time and money that’s shared, loaned, borrowed or combined. Think about your obligations and all you pool with others for mutual gain – from a spouse and your property (including the kids or common rooms), to your pension provider.
  • Focus on a sense of closeness with those you trust, showing your vulnerable side, relying on others to unify and consolidate with you, as they come together in the zone of mergers and mutual gains. Lend attention to those agreements or entanglements you’re keen to sustain!
  • Ask how you might do even better, deepening your oath?

Relationships…

  • The warm, generous Leo Sun, sensitive Moon, and communicator Mercury gather together in the most intimate, private sector of your horoscope, urging you to face your fears, and take stock of your commitments.
  • Merging assets (say with a housemate, friend or moving back in with a parent) may be offering you the chance to wipe the slate clean – perhaps it’s time to seal the deal with a lover, or commit to a shared bank account.
  • Be mindful as the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your passionate fifth house, of love, sexuality, and exciting romantic encounters. Wild projects may interrupt a very serious agreement or pledge.

Growth Opportunities…

  • Manifest the reliable collaborators or circumstances you think will bring you security, that you can commit to financially, emotionally and spiritually. We all need sacred bonds and to benefit from an outside input, today’s New Moon encourages you to think about your ideal set-up (warm, loyal, generous!)
  • Just be mindful that your ruling planet Saturn and Jupiter move slowly through your self-sufficient money house, imparting growth and lessons to learn about your own resources, value and self-worth. Building & developing your own security, assets and attributes doesn’t necessarily fit within a plan for joint finances, or to lavish attention on another person’s input and contribution… Find the balance between shared & solo claims…

AQUARIUS

  • The New Moon in Leo touches on partnership in your seventh house of intimacy and one-to-one encounters. Notice who now appears in your thoughts or literally on the horizon, across the table or on the phone to talk to you, and consider the fresh start you’re keen to make.
  • It’s a remarkable time to lend the full force of your attention towards personal relationships – platonic and romantic, so take time, knowing you can manifest your dream buddy… Heat up your love, re-kindle romance!

Relationships…

  • With the New Moon in your opposite sign there’s reason to come together, to discuss what you want out of a collaboration or love partnership.
  • However, your ruling planet Saturn – and Jupiter – are seen slowly tracing through your sign, bringing awareness of your own wisdom, and an understanding of you limits, Aquarius.
  • You might be feeling burdened with more work or responsibilities and therefore have a shorter fuse, less tolerance and bandwidth. You might be coming off as stern, more concerned with what matters to you, than indulging another. While your own plans, your individuality and identity matter we all need a significant other to bring us some perspective (warm up to a spouse, therapist, parent or friend who can give you feedback now). Balance me & we.

Growth Opportunities…

  • It’s a great day to consider what you need in a partner, and to affirm your willingness to show awareness of ‘them’, too. This isn’t just about a spouse – your business life and all interpersonal connections can benefit from time taken in reflection today; pay attention to what’s roused and raised…
  • Be mindful as the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your domestic interests, property, family life or home spaces – there may be an unsettling signature to contend with around your sense of security and place, making it harder to hear what another person needs from you…

PISCES

  • The New Moon in Leo touches down in your diligent, dutiful sixth house of routines, rituals, daily practices, health, work and wellbeing, so you could be conscious, present and correct, with due diligence & plans to stay on track, maintaining the little things.
  • Emphasise your process for purification – avoiding discombobulation, illness or feeling out of sorts – and claim a fresh start. What acts do you need to perform to stay in the zone? Identify ways you’re a talented commodity, appreciate and show gratitude for your constitution and consistency, motivated by the radiance you omit…
  • Visualise improvements that can be made around your schedule to streamline and make your lifestyle and choices simpler, your purpose aligned.

Relationships…

  • Connect to the people who help and support you in your work, Pisces, folk who make your life easier, bolstering you with sunny optimism – from your friend who accompanies you to the gym, your hairdresser, cleaner, nanny or employees, even your butcher or barista.
  • Seek out new faces that boost you – don’t be afraid to find a new accountant or someone to do the tasks you can’t be bothered with – outsource!

Growth Opportunities…

  • Be proud of your productivity levels and curious about improvements or intentions moving forward, realizing there’s a way to become better, more efficient and useful in acts of service and your job.
  • As Sun, Moon and Mercury appear in the sector that helps you avoid sickness, think about choices that help you take care of you; uphold and maintain your position, daily rituals
  • Just be mindful that your ruling planet Jupiter accompanies Saturn in Aquarius, and your twelfth house of escapism, so you won’t want to stray completely from an inner journey of self-development and catharsis, either.
  • Be mindful as the Sun has only just come out of its square to Uranus, shaking up your contacts and connections, your thought process and conversations on the table. Life in your inner circle of neighbours may be erratic or contentious, yet you can continue to get the work done…
