“The Apparition”, Gustav Moreau
“The Sun and Moon are the foundation of life.
Each month they fuse in an alchemical marriage of yin and yang, substance and consciousness. Like a light through a movie projector, the new moon energies unfold through the lens of the zodiac sign. The planets present at the new moon form the structure and weave the threads in support.

You are part of the tapestry of light and, depending on your own natal chart, you’ll discover the role that the Aries New Moon will play in your life.
Let’s break the new moon down sign by sign.
Aries and Aries Rising — The self, personality, vitality, new beginnings. The new moon will active a renewal of self, a need to completely change and transform, grow and evolve. There will be a stark divide between old you and new you. Don’t be afraid to start a revolution.
Taurus and Taurus Rising — Retreat, rest, recuperation, surrender, endings. The new moon will activate a need to withdraw, let go, and find answers within. Use the lunar month to meditate and get quiet. You’re preparing for a rebirth and a new personal year. This would be a good time to journal about what you’ve learned about yourself over the last 12 months.
Gemini and Gemini Rising — Friends, groups, community, society, humanity, the future. The new moon will activate rebirth in friendships as well as your connection to others. Time to have a completely new vision for the future and surround yourself with the people and partners who will help make it happen.
Cancer and Cancer Rising — Career, direction, status, the world. The new moon will activate your career. Time for a new job or new direction in life, one that may make for a sharp turn to the left or the right. You can’t keep going the way you were going before. Break out of the mold.
Leo and Leo Rising — Travel, higher education, teaching, philosophy. The new moon will activate your passion for knowledge and a need to express your ideas and beliefs. You may be looking to start new with your education as well as embark on a new journey. Publishing, faith, and law will also be highlighted.
Virgo and Virgo Rising — Finances, intimacy, sharing, the psyche. The new moon will activate finance and over the coming days you may be looking into making a fresh start with a bank, how you take on debt, and how you use the resources at your disposal. You may also feel spurred to do a lot of emotional digging and releasing.
Libra and Libra Rising — Relationships, partnership, collaboration, other people. The new moon will give you a fresh start in a relationship or partnerships but not before a total transformation. If a new person comes in, it will be someone completely different than the normal, one who inspires new ways of thinking. You may also feel confronted to leave a relationship.
Scorpio and Scorpio Rising — Health, wellness, work, colleagues, day-to-day life. The new moon will give you a restart with how you take care of your body. Time for new habits, a new diet, or a new workout. Don’t be afraid to shake up your routine. Work and money will also be highlighted.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Rising — Self expression, creativity, children, leisure. The new moon will activate a passion to create and express your talents. If you are a performer, time to get up on stage. Even if you’re not one for the spotlight, how will you show the world your talents?
Capricorn and Capricorn Rising — Home, family, foundation, emotional connections. The new moon will activate the very foundation of your life. You may feel spurred to make a total transformation at home, from a move to a renovation. You also may be more emotional than usual, digging into themes of security and trust. In the midst of a storm, retreat from the world, get still, and listen to your intuition.
Aquarius and Aquarius Rising — Tavel, movement, communication, learning. The new moon will activate all forms of communication. You may be awash with news, information, and new ways of thinking as well as texts, emails, and phone calls. The coming weeks will be busy and full of movement and travel. Siblings and friendships will be highlighted as well.
Pisces and Pisces Rising — Income, value, stability, material life. The new moon will give you a fresh start with your money and how you make it. Even your value system may get a complete overhaul as you take on new consciousness about what you want in life to make you feel stable and secure. You may be looking at new jobs or a career change that are either more in alignment with your spiritual values or gives you the money you feel you deserve.”
