This week’s new moon is your chance to start taking a fresh approach to the things that get you down.

It’s time to release a new energy of positivity and adaptability, while being open to adjust to the changing demands of life.

As the Sun also aligns with Saturn this week, use this time to keep an open mind.

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

Make a concerted effort to determine what you want to achieve in the short term before dedicating yourself to bigger long term goals.

You can’t afford to drain your energy on the wrong people this week, so surround yourself with people that make you feel uplifted and fulfilled.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Listening to the advice of a trusted loved one will help you determine which option you should choose in a difficult circumstance.

You will feel a pull to act out of character this week, so find a safe space to let your freak flag fly!

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You will finally feel comfortable enough to permit yourself to take bold steps in your life this week, as the new moon will give you fresh insight.

Realise there is courage in making a break from toxic situations, and understand the importance of putting yourself first.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

The new moon on Tuesday will prompt you to radically shake up how you think about yourself, your relationships and the world at large.

It’s important to realise the world is what you make it, and it takes work to not always focus on the doom and gloom.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Be patient with the important people in your life this week, as the new moon will weigh your relationships down.

Take time to feed your own spiritual fulfilment, as learn that it’s okay to rely on others.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Your creative impulses will be strong this week, giving you an extra outlet to accurately express yourself.

This creativity will fire up your critical thinking skills, making you extra prone to disagreements with those who don’t see eye-to-eye with your ideals.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Use this boost of positive energy to be creative and stop taking things for granted.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

It’s important to redefine what you expect from others, as you feel your relationships relying on your communication.

Engaging with those closest to you will help resolve this power imbalance, while helping others realise sometimes it’s not easy for you to ask for help.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)

This week’s new moon will help uplift your sense of self, showcasing the importance of feeling confident from within.

You will feel the need to be in control as a profound change is underway, but you will learn to take a backseat to things beyond your control.

Aquarius (January 21st – February 18th)

Change up the context of your working life this week, and make more time for extracurricular activities that make you feel fulfilled.

As people emerge from the woodwork unexpectedly, it’s okay to feel sceptical of people’s motives as you work to protect your energy.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You will feel immense pressure surrounding social obligations this week, forcing you to be discerning about who you make time for.

Trust your gut, as outside influences will cloud your judgement and make you forget what’s important for yourself.
