ARIES (March 20-April 19)
Today brings a new moon in Cancer. Set your goal for the next month. Do not forget your wish list. Remember, you can launch new projects when Mercury comes out of retrograde August 8. Get ready to party when the sun moves to Leo on Sunday, providing an opportunity for fun, love and luck. Show people how creative you are. Your confidence is on the rebound. Share a few of your ideas. Anticipate delays while Mercury is retrograde. Leave new projects alone.
TAURUS (April 20-May 19)
New moon today in Cancer. The folks on the home front may appear a little antsy. Spend time by yourself. Wait until after August 8, when Mercury comes out of retrograde, to launch new projects. On Sunday, the sun travels to Leo, bringing the home front into the spotlight. On Tuesday, share your values. You have an opportunity to communicate with the folks in your daily work department. Your new ideas can bring a bonus to your earned income.
GEMINI (May 20-June 20)
New moon in Aries today. Go ahead and enjoy a short trip this week. Expect a few delays courtesy of retrograde Mercury. Do not forget to set your goal for the month and write down your wishes. Get ready to launch new projects when Mercury goes direct August 8. On Sunday, party with your Leo friends as the sun arrives in their sign. Balance your needs. Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus encourage you to use your wisdom. Stay on track. You should find smooth sailing for the next few weeks.
CANCER (June 21-July 21
Happy birthday. Enjoy the final days of your birthday month. I have something to share with you later-born Cancers. You are known as born on the cusp. You should follow your neighboring sign, Leo, as well as Cancer since you also have some Leo characteristics. Now, chill out if you feel anxious today. It’s the new moon in your sign. The sun travels to Leo on Sunday. You can overcome doubts. You can reach your goals with new ideas.
LEO (July 22-August 22)
The sun moves to your sign on Sunday. Happy birthday. Today brings a new moon in Cancer. Reach for your dreams. When you are born at the beginning or end of a sign, it’s a good idea to follow the neighboring sign as well as your own. Early-born Leos should also read Cancer, since you have characteristics of both signs. With Mercury in your sign and the sun in Leo, you feel on top of the world. Jupiter and Uranus can throw open the window of opportunity.
VIRGO (August 23- September 21)
New moons bring new opportunities, and a new moon occurs in Cancer today. The party moves to Leo when the sun takes up residence there on Sunday. The sun will be in your 12th house. This gives you a chance to put the final touch on old projects. You will get recognition later when Mercury, your ruling planet, moves forward again. Have fun with your Leo friends on Sunday when Jupiter and Uranus get together. Could bring opportunity.
LIBRA (September 22- October 22)
New moon in Cancer today. Your career department is in the spotlight. New moons bring new beginnings. The moon rules Cancer. With this powerful new moon in your space of friends, groups and organizations may make it difficult for you to share a new idea. Expect the unexpected when Jupiter teams up with Uranus on Sunday. Opportunity suddenly flows your way. Share your knowledge. Your relationship department takes center stage.
SCORPIO (October 23- November 21)
New moon in Cancer today. Talk about a few of your new ideas. Chill out if you feel a little antsy. You and your fellow water signs, Cancer and Pisces, feel greater effects from new and full moons. Your Leo friends are ready to party when the sun leaves Cancer and moves to their sign on Sunday. The sun will take up residence in your career department. Show people how creative you are. Pay attention and remain focused. Do not take on more than you can handle.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22- December 20)
A new moon occurs today, a powerful event in Cancer. Maybe this explains why you feel anxious. Mars sends energy to take action. On Sunday, the sun enters your brother fire sign Leo. It’s time for you fire signs to get together (you, Leo, Sag and Aries). The new moon calls for you to pay attention to financial issues. Your energy level cools down later this week. Spend private time with your partner. Lady Luck takes center stage.
CAPRICORN (December 21-January 19)
A new moon will occur today in Cancer. The moon rules Cancer, so the event today will be powerful. Chill out if you feel edgy. On Sunday, the sun will pay a visit to Leo, triggering a month of birthdays there. It’s time for some rest. Beware of burnout. The new moon spotlights your relationship department. You can find a fresh start for social gatherings. Set a goal to achieve over the next month. Do not forget your wish list.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17)
Remember, Mercury is retrograde. Hold off on the big-ticket purchases for a couple more weeks. This goes for autos, computers or anything electrical. Today brings a new moon in Cancer. This powerful new moon will be in your daily work department. This could explain why some of your co-workers are a little fidgety. On Sunday, your relationship department enters the spotlight for the next month. Get yourself on a productive path. It’s time to bring in new energy.
PISCES (February 18-March 19)
I know you feel anxious with a new moon coming up in a water sign. You and Cancer and Pisces are the water signs. New and full moons have a strong effect on all three of you, especially Cancer, which is ruled by the moon. You should have a ball Sunday, when the sun moves to Leo, the party sign. That puts your daily work department in the spotlight for the next month. Take care of business related to the home when Jupiter brings opportunity on Tuesday.
