The New Moon this week falls in the emotional sensitive zodiac sign of Cancer. It is a particularly emotional and sensitive time because the planet Mars (fiery energy and conflict) is also in Cancer, along with Mercury (communication). Add to this, a complex and tense planetary pattern that denotes clashes or stressful conditions. A New Moon always denotes a new beginning or fresh action with plans/situation that’s stalled, and there will certainly be action with this New Moon, but be prepared for some very challenging conditions too.
ARIES and LEO: There’ll be a surge of action on the home front - visitors, domestic work and family endeavours, but you’ll also have to keep your cool with frustrating domestic conditions and family spats.
TAURUS and SCORPIO: You’ll spread your wings with an ambitious new personal project, new interests, activities and learning, wider social contact, travel or a change of scene, and exciting plans with a distant relative or colleague - but there may be a few hassles to sort out as things unfold.
GEMINI and SAGITTARIUS: Important financial business, large transactions or costly endeavours will go ahead but watch a tendency to overspend or make impulsive/emotional financial decisions.
CANCER: Your personal energy will be revved up – you’ll take the bull by the horns and go for something you want, stand up for something you believe in, or do something you’ve been postponing for a long time.
VIRGO: You’ll pour energy into fulfilling a special personal aspiration, cultivating new contacts, catching up with friends, working through a few challenging exchanges or debates and enjoying fun times, outings and activities.
LIBRA and AQUARIUS: You’ll have your hands full! Stressful tasks, demanding conditions and challenging differences/situations with colleagues will ask more and more of you. PR efforts on the job will be essential.
CAPRICORN: An important event or change for a loved one will require energetic support. Step lightly though, to defuse clashing ideas, and emotional ups and down with your partner or a family member.
PISCES: You’ll throw yourself into fulfilling a personal goal that is close to your heart, bringing special plans with a loved one to fruition or building a relationship, but the best way forward may not always be clear – see the big picture to keep emotional vacillations at bay and to guide you through.
Wishing you joy,
