Tip of the Week:

The two previous New Moons at 0 and 29 Aries respectively, with the latter a historic Hybrid Solar Eclipse, no less, the next one is also very special. Less commonly heard of, this next New Moon at 28 Taurus 25 possesses the special distinction of what is called “Cazimi”. This means that the Moon in its apogee, or furthest point away in its elliptical orbit from Earth, is effectively positioned in the center of the Sun, from our perspective. A Cazimi New Moon is generally considered auspicious for new projects, ventures, and start-ups so this is your cue to make the most of it. Ironically, this furthest point from Earth is also the determination for Black Moon Lilith which is yet another lesser known point in Astrology yet which is quite powerful. It is recognized to effectively symbolize a dark side of one’s emotional nature associated with unresolved traumas or as repressed hidden desires that tend to harbor a charge of resentment as revealed by the sign, house, degree, and aspects it makes in one’s Birth Chart.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

This Cazimi New Moon indicates on emphasis on personal finances. This is generally true for everyone due to Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus and the Lunar North Node all in Taurus as well, but especially for you.  With Venus and Mars in Cancer, themes of security linked to home and family are emphasized.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Circumstances of late are likely activating your emotions to the point of dramatic concern. This New Moon will serve to ignite your resolve to focus intently and to take deliberate action. A growing determination to get to the bottom of things will be evident yet a patient resolve is your best bet.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

This lunar cycle is inviting you to retreat. There is a strong emphasis on emotional safety and security. While financial matters are featured, the emphasis may be more fully on health and self-care. Themes of transformation are also indicated and the result is that a whole new you is emerging.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Powerful changes in your overall status of late are now settling into a new norm. These do include an added degree of challenge regarding your energy levels, yet there are indications that you are already and will rise to meet the challenge. You may also learn who are and are not true friends and allies.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Challenges associated with your public and professional life triggered by last month’s Solar Eclipse should be evident by now. There is not likely a quick fix to resolve the issue. Rather, the situation requires a deeper resolve to be more practical and realistic regarding a whole new level of effort and discipline.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

You are on the other side of a period of change and transformation. This should be evident both within and without. Now, this new lunar cycle is inviting you to begin a rebuilding process. Don’t expect things to return to the way they were. Instead, approach things differently and with new strategies.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Destined new beginnings on relationship fronts should be evident by now. These may not be everything you want, however. You may be challenged to make extra efforts to embrace the opportunities presented. Doing so may even require new knowledge or even training of some kind.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Are you ready for a fresh start, perhaps especially in your relationship life? Well, if so, this may be the big break you have been waiting for. You may have to make extra efforts to break free from your comfort zone, however. This may prove easier said than done and may include learning new skills.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The recent series of New Moons, including this one, are activating changes for everyone at both personal and collective levels. For you, the emphasis has been on the health and quality of your daily routine and rhythm and lifestyle in general. Now, the shifts will occur in your associations with others.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

This Cazimi New Moon carries a creative spark for you. It is one that could well prove to activate sudden and unexpected changes in your priorities and extend to your daily life. These will likely have an impact on your home and family situation as well. Expect the ignition soon.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

The seeds of change are being sown for everyone. Life works this way but it is extra emphasized now. Specially, these are serving to alter some of your perspectives and will also manifest as new developments close to home. You will also likely get a creative boost so hopefully, you can harness it.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

Shifts in your overall self-concept and priorities are underway. These will now turn to impact your perceptions and interpretations extending to home and family. Positively, the next couple of months could prove to be very productive. In this regard, plan to take time off in late July or August.
