Aries Horoscope (March 21 - April 19)
While it's true that adopting a more methodical approach to your work mutes your natural gift for spontaneity, the potential for progress is well worth the sacrifice now. The industrious Virgo New Moon puts your 6th House of Habits on notice, adding an element of emotional integrity to the crowded cosmic landscape. It might feel like your current all-work-and-no-play lifestyle is dulling your sparkle, but it would be foolish to miss this wave of productivity when so much good can be accomplished. Reset your priorities, organize your resources, and apply a healthy dose of self-discipline to create the future you want. Failure is not an option when your dreams are at stake.
Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
You are treading on solid ground now, empowering you to reveal your heart to a friendly audience. The earthy Virgo New Moon lands in your 5th House of Self-Expression, inspiring you to demonstrate your creative streak. A planetary gathering in the hardworking sign of Virgo may not sound like fun and games at first but, with delicious Venus in the mix, you are bound to discover pleasure in the most unlikely of places. Your ability to make the best out of any situation earns you admiration and praise.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 - June 20)
Your innate need for flexibility takes a backseat to your current craving for familiarity. The busy planetary mix in your 4th House of Roots nudges you to create more stability in your personal life, and the virtuous Virgo New Moon drives home the point. Acting footloose and fancy-free tends to be your default mode, but now there is a new sheriff in town and playing by the rules suddenly sounds like an excellent idea. The cosmic energy is shifting over the next few days, and you are wise to shift your behavior as well. However, in your haste to conform, do not misplace your sense of humor. Talk less, laugh more.
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)
Life is a conundrum lately as distractions of every shape and size challenge your skills of concentration. On one hand, you are enchanted with the myriad of possibilities dangling in front of you. But on the other hand, you recognize that if you attack one project with singular focus, you will make much more progress. A plethora of planets and this no-nonsense New Moon rattle your 3rd House of Immediate Environment, demanding that you think first and feel later. Discerning the difference between trivial and critical is your ticket to success.
Leo Horoscope (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Money can't buy you happiness, but it does provide a certain sense of freedom if you allocate your funds wisely. Your generosity is most likely well-intended, but keeping your pride in check allows you to give without expectation of something in return. The meticulous Virgo New Moon takes stock of your 2nd House of Personal Resources, collaborating with a pack of planets in picky Virgo on the final analysis of your worth. Don't allow an overly critical outlook to dampen your enthusiasm; a temporary freeze on exorbitant purchases will only boost your bottom line. The gift of your time is priceless to those who love you.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You are receiving a rare gift from the cosmos -- a precious second birthday wish so you can reset your intentions for the exhilarating new year ahead. The perfectionist Virgo New Moon joins the planetary party in your 1st House of Self, infusing a celebratory air into the mix. Cake and candles are fun, but if you want to reach your goals you must seize this fertile opportunity to manifest your dreams. Although the Sun moves out of your sign on September 22, it will take some time for the other planets to follow. Consider this an extra bonus round where you get to finetune your personal strategy for success.
Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Making time for contemplation and rest is key to your emotional wellbeing now. The Virgo New Moon shadows your 12th House of Privacy, urging you to withdraw from the daily hustle and bustle to quiet your mind. In a couple of days, the pace of life will quicken when the Sun leads a parade of planets into Libra and your 1st House of Self. Grab this temporary respite to recharge your batteries while you can. A disciplined meditation practice and a few nights of good sleep will change your world.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You are happiest working as an integral member of a group now, but only if there are tangible results produced. There are too many planets in hardworking Virgo pushing their agenda to just hang out for the sake of camaraderie now. The Virgo New Moon's presence in your 11th House of Community only intensifies the connection you feel to your work. You want to impress others with what you bring to the table, but try not to judge yourself too unfairly in the process. Playing comparison games takes the shine off your unique set of skills, so don't bother wasting your time competing for the title of most valuable player on the team. Being your best self inspires others to do the same.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may not appreciate the message being sent from the cosmos now. You typically prefer to trip the light fantastic, so the fussy Virgo New Moon and this planetary traffic jam in your 10th House of Public Status are making you cranky. The truth is you won't be able to fit in all the amazing things you hoped to do now, and the sooner you face that sobering fact, the better. Eliminating the extraneous noise enables you to narrow your options down to the most practical ones.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Your mind is working on overdrive, envisioning all the possibilities for your future and the consequences of each scenario. The discriminating Virgo New Moon and its planetary allies are hard at work in your 9th House of Big Ideas, encouraging you to sharpen your mental acuity by heading back to school or learning a new language. Gathering useful information from a variety of sources enables you to make the best choices possible. However, waiting until you find the perfect plan is a self-defeating strategy. At some point, you will have to trust yourself to make the right decision.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Buckle your seatbelt and prepare for a bumpy ride full of spills and thrills. The Virgo New Moon fusses over your 8th House of Intimacy, and you can't help but wonder if others are seeing you in a positive light. Clearly, the gaggle of planets in orderly Virgo are striking a nerve now, triggering your rebellious nature for possibly no valid reason. Your key planet Uranus is ready to strike at the littlest provocation now; watch out for overreactions on your part, unless you really want to rock your world. Preparing for the unexpected is nearly impossible, but joyfully dancing with the element of surprise separates you from the rest of the pack.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You need to put in the work if you hope to strengthen the bonds of your relationships. However, a musical serenade or poetry recital is not going to impress anyone while the results-oriented Virgo New Moon and its planetary cohorts are taking up all the oxygen in your 7th House of Others. Practical actions count when it comes to deepening the trust between you and someone you admire. But Neptune could easily seduce you into believing you are following your heart, only to discover you are simply dazed and confused. There's no reason to rush anything when all you need to do is just show up with an open heart.
