Keep reading to see how your sign can make the most of this New Moon energy.
Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)
It may seem as if your life is easier to manage because you’re at the top of your game. You don’t need to push yourself very hard to demonstrate your competence while you make your tired old routines look completely new and different. But the easygoing Taurus New Moon in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem can lead to overconfidence, and too much self-assuredness creates its own kind of trouble. Sloppy logic inspires you to jump to conclusions and tempts you to take unnecessary risks. Stick to the basics and the details will quietly fall into place.
Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)
It’s fantastic that you can be so productive, even if the countless distractions in your life won’t leave you alone. You’re so wrapped up in your work while the pragmatic Taurus New Moon grounds the energy in your 1st House of Self that no one is able to talk you out of your current ambitions. Your infamous bullheadedness emboldens you to plow through obstacles and overcome resistance. With a little extra effort, you will surpass your own expectations; aim high and focus on your target with singular intent.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)
An odd mixture of mundane responsibilities and hopeful visions can confuse your progress. The Taurus New Moon shadows your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery, increasing tension between reality and fantasy. However, the earthy Taurus energy blesses you with enough stability to manifest form from an apparently unreachable dream. Don’t withdraw from the amorphous realms of unlimited potential because whatever transforms into your future starts within your imagination. Plant your garden and watch it grow.
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)
Solid opportunities to build enduring relationships with your peers add richness to your world. The sensible Taurus New Moon highlights your 11th House of Groups, strengthening your social network and increasing your popularity. Nevertheless, it’s up to you to make the first move. Taking the lead and sharing your goals shifts the dynamics and turns a casual acquaintance into a lasting friendship. It may seem risky to initiate a conversation, but a well-intended overture to the right person could benefit you for a long time to come. If you don’t take a chance, you don’t stand a chance.
Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Your inspirational words can motivate people to continue on their individual paths with great determination. Thankfully, the reliable Taurus New Moon falls in your 10th House of Status, making it easier to express yourself on the job. Although you can succinctly explain your complicated recipe for success, you still worry about your inability to execute your own strategy. Unfortunately, playing the role of an entertaining speaker isn’t enough to make your dreams come true. Face your fears and lead by example. Don’t be afraid to fail; be afraid not to try.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
You may be considering a major decision to alter the direction of your life. Or, perhaps, you’re overwhelmed with an array of projects at work. In either case, it helps to break down the dilemma into several smaller pieces and then attack them one at a time. Fortunately, the earthy Taurus New Moon adds structure to your 9th House of Big Ideas, enabling you to manage the complexity. Avoid the temptation to treat your agenda as a sprint because your destination is not as close as you think. Sustainability is your friend.
Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Although Libra the Scales is all about creating balance in relationships, you crave more than harmonious interactions with others. The Taurus New Moon emphasizes your 8th House of Transformation, requiring you to sink beneath the social veneer. Unless you’re willing to go deep, you’ll likely be left feeling emotionally unsatisfied. You want to experience all the pleasures that life has to offer. Unfortunately, you could appear desperate if you act too obsessively. Intimacy is built on a strong foundation when it develops naturally on its own.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Your relationships are often complicated by your tendency to feel things in the extreme. You aren’t one to moderate your passions just to put someone at ease. However, the practical Taurus New Moon focuses on your 7th House of Partners, encouraging you to seek salvation from life’s complexities through an easygoing interaction with someone you admire. You are being offered the gift of emotional security, even if you’re afraid of being trapped by the simplicity. Be happy; relinquish your attachment to drama and overcome your fear of boredom. Love isn’t meant to be so hard.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
There’s a pile of things to do on your desk and attacking it immediately enables you to finish it sooner. But beginning your work is only the first step. It’s critical to establish a sustainable pace and create a consistent schedule since the dependable Taurus New Moon influences your 6th House of Habits. Starting a new job is a no-brainer with planets kicking up dust in feisty Aries and flighty Gemini. Nevertheless, turning your excitement into an ongoing practice assures your success. Jim Rohn said, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You appear to express yourself without much forethought, but you still need a viable strategy if you want to be a success. The Taurus New Moon occurs in your 5th House of Creativity, helping you justify a calculated risk. However, you must follow through on whatever you begin or your efforts will be pointless. Under the right circumstances, trying something new can be a lot of fun. But to be safe, come back to your senses and step through your plan one more time before doing something you might regret. Haste makes waste.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Although you can be an innovative thinker, your lack of flexibility makes it difficult to integrate the amazing ideas that continue to spark your imagination. Fortunately, your friends and coworkers are probably quite supportive of your efforts. But the obstinate Taurus New Moon grows roots in your 4th House of Foundations, convincing you that your point of view is the only relevant one. Nevertheless, remaining open to feedback lightens your load and makes your work much less of a challenge. An old proverb declares, “A problem shared is a problem halved.”
Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Thankfully, the hectic pace is settling down, but the noise is far from quiet. Don’t wait any longer; it’s time to reflect on all the recent events before you take a few deep breaths and turn your attention elsewhere. But moving on isn’t about escaping the present moment; it’s about interacting with others while you adjust to your current position. The Taurus New Moon stabilizes your 3rd House of Communication, helping to ground the energy around you. Every conversation is an opportunity to learn; every person you meet is a teacher.
