There’s a New Moon in Gemini this week – but what will this mean for your star sign?
Astrologist Patrick Arundell suggests it’s a time for new beginnings and new projects – and has some birthday luck for Geminis who celebrate their birthdays week.
Aries 21 March – 20 April
This bright and breezy week begins with a New Moon in Gemini, which is great if you’re keen to learn or teach, want to connect more, or eager to market your work online and on social media. But the big news for you is the movement of Mars into Leo, and a fire sign. If you’ve been far too reticent for your own good lately, you’ll soon be fired up and ready to rock, Aries.
Taurus 21 April – 21 May
Money matters get a helping hand from the Gemini New Moon, and could be the inspiration behind a drive to streamline your financial affairs, enhance your income and find more peace around financial issues. Home sweet home can beckon too, as feisty Mars moves in and sets to work. A declutter and a makeover may find you genuinely proud of your living space.
Gemini 22 May – 21 June
The midweek New Moon in your sign is one of the best times to launch a project, start a new diet or exercise routine, or to take the first steps regarding an important goal or ambition. But you’ll also come into your own as Mars enters your sector of talk and thought. You’ll have even more charisma and charm, which can lead to some amazing opportunities.
Cancer 22 June – 23 July
Feel a desire to improve yourself? If so, a potent lunar phase could inspire you to take that step earlier rather than later. If a book grabs your attention or you feel like upgrading to a better version of yourself, whether alone or with some help, then go for it. You may feel a push to rein in spending and gain control over your finances, or to streamline money matters in general.
Leo 24 July – 23 August
Got a plan? The Gemini New Moon midweek is perfect for setting things in motion. Whether this is a team effort with friends or perhaps a community project, this lunar phase can assist. Mind, with Mercury rewinding, take things one step at a time as unexpected changes may occur. As Mars moves into your sign, your confidence and leadership qualities could really stand out.
Virgo 24 August – 23 September
Ready to launch yourself to the next level? This week’s New Moon in a prominent zone may help you build momentum. An opportunity could show up again, and if you feel like having a go, take a chance. With the planet of talk and thought regressing, progress might meander for a while. In addition, dreams can be very vivid, and this is an excellent time for closure on old issues.
Libra 24 September – 23 October
Ideas and opportunities are all around, and if you’re open to them you can benefit greatly. With a bright New Moon inspiring you to take a bold step forward, anything that piques your interest could be embraced. Your social life may suddenly explode into action, as Mars moves into Leo for a stay of six weeks. If you’ve missed your friends, this might be the time you make up for it.
Scorpio 24 October – 22 November
A new phase of growth and even prosperity awaits, if you’re willing to make the most of an offer or build on what you’ve already accomplished. A vision of what is possible may tempt you to invest in an idea or plan that could bring a good return. And with Mars your co-ruler powering through a high-flying zone, you’ll be ready to do whatever it takes to succeed, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November – 21 December
Relationships sparkle with promise, and this week’s upbeat moon phase brings the option of taking things to the next level, Archer. A current bond could deepen and become more committed, or you may take the plunge with a budding romance. With vital Mars stirring up your sector of adventure, you might be ready to get away and seek out the sun and enjoy a break.
Capricorn 22 December – 20 January
As this week’s New Moon aligns with Mercury retro, you may become inspired about an opportunity that’s left you both excited and unimpressed in turn. Something can click into place, and you might sense this is a good match for you after all. But as Mars heads into a financial zone, the desire to pull off a business deal or to wisely invest money could intensify.
Aquarius 21 January – 19 February
It may be time to commit to an idea, creative project, budding romance or entrepreneurial business plan. Something is ready to emerge, and this week’s New Moon can kickstart the process. Need to clear the air in a relationship? As Mars moves into Leo, it might be time to let others know where you stand so that they can make the decisions best suited to them.
Pisces 20 February – 20 March
Ready to initiate something new at home? If so, a momentum-building lunar phase can get things moving. Whether you’re thinking of a homely makeover, starting a small business from the kitchen table or getting to grips with other issues, now is the time. As Mars enters your lifestyle zone, energy levels could increase and you may feel in the mood to do more work or exercise.
