We have the “all clear” today to do business. The New Moon is in Cancer.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is the only New Moon all year urging you to make resolutions about home and family. What can you do to improve your home? What can you start to do to improve family relationships? These are important areas for you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Today’s New Moon is your chance to observe your style of communicating with others. Think about how you can improve your communications especially with siblings, neighbors and relatives. Ideas?
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Use today’s New Moon to see how to best handle your assets and your financial situation. Can you boost your earnings? Can you get a better job? What about your possessions? Is there something that needs repair or attention?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Today is the only New Moon in your sign all year. That makes this the perfect day to look in the mirror and ask yourself how you can improve your image in the world. (After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
The Sun, Mercury, Venus and today’s New Moon are all hidden in your chart. This means things are happening in your life behind the scenes. Perhaps you are working alone? Use today’s New Moon to get in touch with your inner self, something that is easily lost in our busy day-to-day world.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Are you happy with the friends you have? Do you hang out with quality people? Today’s New Moon is the best day all year to think about your friends and the groups to which you belong. Friends are important because they influence your thinking, and your thinking makes the decisions that determine your future.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today’s New Moon joins a gaggle of planets that are high in your chart. This means it’s the perfect day to think about your life direction in general. Are you just drifting day to day or are you aiming for some goals? If you do have goals, are they your goals or someone else’s?
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
What can you do to expand your experience of life? Travel, training and talking to people from different backgrounds and other countries are some examples of how you can broaden your horizons. Today is a good day to think about how you can do this.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This is the perfect day to ponder your debt situation. What can you do to reduce your debt? It’s also a good day to think about the values of others and how they might conflict with your values. Shared property, insurance issues and inheritances need your attention.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Today the Sun, Mercury, Venus and the New Moon are all directly opposite you. Quite a reception! Basically, this could be the best day of the year to think about how you can improve your closest friendships and partnerships. Ideas?
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The New Moon today offers you one of the best chances of the year to think about what you can do to improve your health — and also, to think about how you can improve your job or your approach to your daily tasks. (There is always room for improvement because we are such frail mortals.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Are you happy with the balance you have between play and work in your life? How often do grab the chance to explore your creative expression — singing, dancing or playing an instrument? Primitive societies freely express their creativity. Now we rarely do. (The price for being civilized.)
If Your Birthday Is Today
Singer-songwriter Bill Withers (1938) shares your birthday today. You often identify with a group, perhaps even your family. You are naturally sympathetic to others, and often give advice. It’s important to know that you will benefit by dealing with others this year. In other words, your success lies with interacting with other people. Make friends. Join clubs and organizations. Your social activities will be mutually beneficial.
