The moon rules over growth and decay or the ebb and flow of life. It is connected to our oceans’ tides.
The moon rules Cancer, which is a water sign, and the energy of the moon is feminine in qualities. The light of the moon is more subtle than the sun, which is a more masculine and obvious energy. The moon on the other hand is in constant change for 28 days as it goes through its cycle.
The new moon is a time for fresh ideas to be planted and grown until they are ready for harvest.
The new moon lasts about two and a half days, so if you’ve been wanting to start something new this is a great time to start planning it. Be it giving up smoking, starting a new diet or putting together a new project, now is a time to start.
The new moon is always in the same sign as the sun and this month it is in Scorpio. This just happens to be the same sign the Mercury retrograde is in, meaning this month is all about Scorpio.
ARIES
You have support from the cosmos to implement changes in your private life. The new moon helps to lay the foundation and maintain a momentum with new plans. If you’ve focused on financial improvement, use this phase to execute your strategy. The same applies to your sex life – be safe.
TAURUS
You and your loved one will re-establish ground rules, entering a new phase in your relationship. If single, a new outlook on love will help find what you are looking for in a partner. You may also find a fresh approach in your interactions with others.
GEMINI
The madness of last week will settle and you will enjoy the respite. The new moon gives you renewed energy to push on with your daily routines. Finding easier and less stressful ways to carry out your daily activities will improve your health and wellbeing.
CANCER
Let your creative streak run wild. Projects will come to fruition and you will see a new way to express yourself. This is a good time for learning as information is easily processed and understood. Maintain your momentum and you’ll be surprised by your capabilities.
LEO
Leaving the past where it belongs is a great way to let go of insecurities. You may be changing your place of residence or environment, including work. You are definitely moving on from a circumstance that made you feel anxious and you can head towards your goals with determination.
VIRGO
The retrograde period is now over so communication will be easier and technology will start behaving. Look for the positives in last week’s issues and set yourself a new agenda. This is a good time to hold those important conversations, negotiate deals and set plans in motion.
LIBRA
Rest assured that you will begin this phase making the right choices. Adopt a firm attitude towards cash, bring your talents to the attention of the right people and shelve ideas that don’t require immediate attention. Ensuring you exert your energy in the right places will make recent setbacks seem like nothing.
SCORPIO
This new moon heralds major changes for you. It would be beneficial for you not to dwell on the past. It’s time to leave it behind you as the next 12 months are a completely new chapter in your life. There could be a surprise development that gives you something very important to think about.
SAGITTARIUS
This can be a highly charged time for you and it’s important to recognise that rest and relaxation are paramount. Your subconscious will affect you more than you know so try to listen to what your inner voice is telling you. If you have a feeling that you should slow down, then do so.
CAPRICORN
Your attitude towards your friends will alter. To be surrounded by supportive people is something to work towards. New networks and connections will also appear and prove worthwhile. The New Moon in this zone is also a good time to make a wish but be careful and specific.
AQUARIUS
Career change or plans for a promotion are well aspected now. Your social standing will begin a new phase as well. When career is involved it’s important to be mindful of going too far to impress – you don’t want to overdo it. This also means maintaining a work/life balance.
PISCES
Incorporating new-found insights into your daily life will help you to approach the unapproachable topics of late. This could relate directly to emotional relationships. If you’ve been thinking of studying or travelling, go for it. It’s the time for increasing your knowledge on a worldly scale.
