Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Don’t give up hope, Cancer. You are emotional, yes, but channel those feeling into something you want. You can use your feelings to help set things in motion. This New Moon in your own sign, Cancer, empowers you to set intentions aligned with your emotional needs and personal growth. Take the opportunity to nurture yourself, set boundaries, and embark on a journey of self-discovery. Trust your intuition as you manifest your desires.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Put “Let it go” on your Spotify playlist and sing at the top of your lungs. It’s time to release the old and make room for the new. During the New Moon in Cancer, Leo, it’s time to focus on your emotional foundation. Reflect on your past and heal any wounds that may hinder your growth. Create a secure and loving inner sanctuary that supports your self-expression and creativity.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Yes, you. It’s time to care for yourself. Your wants. Your needs. You, you and more you. It’s not being selfish. It’s called self-love, and you need hefty doses of it. The New Moon in Cancer encourages you, Virgo, to prioritize emotional well-being and self-care. Take time for introspection and connect with your inner self. Set intentions to bring more peace, tranquility, and balance into your life.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You’re a people-person, and you are designed to be around individuals whom you can love and be loved by as well. During this New Moon, Libra, it’s time to focus on nurturing and deepening your connections with others. Set intentions to create harmonious relationships built on trust, empathy, and emotional support. Seek balance between your own needs and those of your loved ones.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You know what you need to do. You don’t need permission, a new journal to write out your thoughts or a visit to a local tarot card reader to remind you about who you are. You already feel this one in your soul. The New Moon in Cancer urges you, Scorpio, to tend to your emotional healing and well-being. Dive deep into your subconscious, release past traumas, and set intentions for transformation. Embrace forgiveness and nurture a sense of emotional liberation.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You need stability, Sag. It’s one thing to have wanderlust and travel the world, but it’s an entirely other thing to feel like the rug is going to be pulled from beneath your feet every time you turn around. During this New Moon, Sagittarius, it’s time to focus on creating a comforting and secure home environment. Set intentions to establish a sense of grounding and stability in your personal life. Embrace a nurturing space that supports your adventurous spirit.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Being authentic is a skin deep matter. It’s being who you are, and it also means knowing who you are not. It’s not an easy thing to do. The New Moon in Cancer encourages you, Capricorn, to set intentions that revolve around emotional vulnerability and authentic self-expression. Allow your inner child to surface and explore creative outlets that bring you joy and emotional fulfillment.
