What’s between you and what you want?
Showcase your secret self
Hot? You scorch, Aries!
Intense and extra aspects hand you charisma and personal magnetism which is so dazzling it’s a bit like looking at eclipse – without the eye protection. Hidden facets of you are glimpsed by others. And they find them simply compelling and irresistible. Hidden talents? They are yours to tap into a showcase,
The question of course remains – are you scared of your own power, Aries? Or are you choosing to fully embrace and work it? The Sun and new Moon both oppose Uranus in your 2nd from your 8th. While ruler Mars and the Sun trine Neptune in your 12th and then fuse their energy on the 18th.
A powerful transmutation can occur especially around partnerships or anything that is co-owned or shared with you and by you. Love takes on a depth you might not have thought possible. Your sexy self demands you pay attention to its needs. Others are picking up on that 50 Shades of You vibe, baby.
Your 8th house rules the beginning and the end, the death and the rebirth, the alchemy and the reforging. And yes, your passion and desires and your fears and boundaries. What lies between you and your heart’s desire should also be exposed allowing you to dissolve the barriers between you and your goal. Do remember due to Uranus in the mix, that anything that no longer aids or enhances your soul evolution will be swept aside to make room for what does. Do no resist if this occurs.
For some Aries, a trip of a lifetime or even travel for business could open up new horizons or opportunities to make your mark. It’s time to think seriously what you really want. Sometimes what we desire the most is also the thing which scares us the most too. Be honest about this, Aries. Then feel the fear and go for it anyway.
In a nutshell: Searing, intense heat makes you the hot zone others want to be in, Aries. It’s a week where personal empowerment drives you forward to own and embrace your desires. Don’t allow self-sabotage or fear stop you. Intensify your passion with your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.

Step into new beginnings in relationships
All or nothing feels!
Love is the surprise with your most soul-struck new Moon of the year, Taurus. Filled with partnership promise, it and the Sun oppose Uranus in your sign. Reminding you that our greatest growth always occurs in relationship.
Look to the person who evolves your soul. Or a next level connection about to appear. And do remember with Uranus in the mix – it or they may not be who you think. There’s strong feelings either way. And you’ll certainly have no doubts about who I am talking about. The Sun and Mars melding together which they do on the 18th, is all about the heat. No so-so, tepid temperatures. You feel it, you act on it. And someone has your undivided attention.
Getting out and about is the other key element. Doing what you can do be seen, mix and mingle. If you have been immersed in work or other matters, now is when you need to come up for air. Nothing happens in isolation. Be at your most open and social. Update that profile, that social media feed. Interact. Push yourself to make the effort to get out and about. Sure, the Venus retrograde in July threw shade over your personal and even professional life. But this week burns off those lingering cobwebs.
The new Moon also offers Incredible inroads into work goals could make their mark on projects or collaborative ventures. The Moon also signals it’s either time to go all in on something or else accept it’s not for you and walk away. If you experience the latter it’s all part of a larger plan so please don’t try to hold on or prevent it happening. Love evolves – and revolves. Go round with it.
In a nutshell: The new Moon in your 7th always marks the beginning of a new phase in existing relationships. Or ushers in an important new one. Love evolves our souls. So, prepare for the one which does. More in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.

Do the groundwork for next month’s pay off
The road to vibrant wellbeing may be a different one
Make your goal getting gorge!
Perhaps your current obsession with the body beautiful has been triggered by the attention of someone special, Gemini? It’s a chicken and egg situation as in which comes first? Does your desire for a more gorgeousified and perfected version of you attract the attention in the first place or is it a response to the love potential you feel welling around you? You don’t have long to wait for your yearly love peak. Put yourself in training.
The feel good factor is what you are after. That’s about something more permanent that the latest Tiktok or Insta ‘self care’ trend. You want to do something which sustains that feeling of vibrancy and being ready for anything. So, think outside the box when the new Moon in your 6th opposes Uranus in your 12th (13th). Time to throw out the old diets, exercise regimens and above all, any negative tapes where you tell yourself you don’t have the willpower. The solution could be counter-intuitive compared to what you have tried in the past. But if what you’ve tried hasn’t worked then what have you got to lose?
And no, its nothing to do with willpower. Maybe just maybe you have been set up to fail from the start? Seeing this puts you in a new mindset. One which supports. The same goes for any work issues. Do look at whether or not the dice are loaded against you when it comes to achieving those goals.
No matter what conclusion you arrive at, you are becoming someone better. And preparing to create a new outcome for yourself – whether in work or in love. Do the ground work this week, Gemini. It all begins with making sure you feel ready.
In a nutshell: This week’s new Moon is all about laying the groundwork for what’s to come next month, Gemini. This means opting for what energises you, supports you and enhancing that vibrancy. Getting gorge should be self-directed. And supportive. Ditch what’s not for what’s hot.

Usher in a new phase of living
What are you willing to continue to live with?
Home truths lead to overdue moves
Your home, family, living arrangements and what provides the bedrock for your emotional, material and physical stability – all these themes are triggered by the new Moon in your 4th (13th). It opposes Uranus in your 10th – your house of status and achievement.
You won’t or can’t ignore the price ticket that comes with those choices now, Leo. The amount you pay for rent, your mortgage, living expenses or even the cost on an emotional level of your career. Is it worth it? Can you afford it? These will be questions you will find yourself confronting. And seeking answers to.
You’ll realise if you have allowed something to just drift or have been living with restrictions or dissatisfaction for far too long, this cannot continue. As your ruler the Sun meets Mars in your 4th (18th) you’ll harness the determination to make the changes you need to. For some, this could be confronting family or those you live with and announcing that things must now change. Others may take action over a property matter or something or someone that you have had to live with, but you are now no longer willing to do so. It could be it has pushed you around or dictated terms for far too long.
There’s so much more at stake here than just your home or bricks and mortar. It’s what you are no longer prepared to compromise on. Perhaps your peace of mind, dignity, well being, truth, self-respect. This is the moment when you let others know: the buck stops here. Make that move you know is overdue, Leo.
In a nutshell: This week’s new Moon is in its ruling house in your chart, Leo. Get ready for home truths and blazing bold moves and decisions when it comes to where, what or who you’re willing to live with. More homecoming wisdom in your New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope.

Bust out those ideas
Is it time for a different direction?
Words ave the magic element
Break out moves and breakthrough ideas are pre-packaged along with the new Moon in your 3rd (13th). You just may have to think on your feet and pivot, Virgo. Leaning in to a fresh direction thanks to the Moon’s opposition to Uranus in your 9th.
It may test you to see just how attached you are to one path, one idea or way of thinking. It offers up alternatives. But if you do change direction, go all in with no hesitation or half-measures.
If news arrives, it tells you that you are on track when it comes to a goal or outcome. The need to remain flexible cannot be over sold. Oh – and the same goes for your ideas. Try to organise meetings, interviews, pitches and presentations – not to mention that launch, for this week. The Sun’s fusion to Mars on the 13th means you’ll not only be able to get your point across or sell yourself effectively, but be in a position to impress or astound with those smarts.
And yes, others want what you’re selling on a personal level too. We can’t ignore the sweet nothings the Sun and Mars whisper to Neptune in your 7th this week. But you or others had better not say it unless you mean it. Your 3rd rules the internet and your on-line presence. And yes, that dating app. Ghosted? Or get the feeling the other party simply likes the on line flirtation but has no intention of taking this further? Those who say it without any desire to follow through are exposed. Don’t waste any more time (or typing) on them, Virgo. Not when others are simply hanging off your every word.
In a nutshell: Pivot if a new opportunity comes your way which requires you change direction to accept it, Virgo. This week asks just how flexible are you? But when it comes to keeping your word – that’s a given. And you expect the same from others when it comes to the follow-through.

Make sure it matches your worth
Stand by your values
The buck stops with you
The inescapable truth around the present cycle for you Libra is that everything revolves around your values and what’s worth it. This week’s new Moon being the Stand by Them moment for you. Yes, you have been engaged in a long term process where what’s important to you and what you will or won’t sell your soul for, may have undergone a total reset and revolution. When this occurs, what often happens next is that we are put in a situation where we are called to stand by them. No matter what.
This can involve a big Yes as much as it could a definitive No. Yes, it may involve your money. Or what your share with another. But at the end of the day it will come back to you. The Moon opposes Uranus in your 8th indicating that the revolution is very much here and you may be manning the barricades when it comes to what you will or won’t accept or allow in.
This could just as easily be around a relationship. Your 2nd rules those too as it is governed by Venus. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and also Mars. The Sun and Mars meet on the 18th and you’ll find yourself asking whether something is worth it or simply whether the price ticket is too high. Again, maybe not in terms of your cash (although it could be). But also potentially what is may cost you emotionally or around your integrity, peace of mind and self-respect. Those things are not for sale. Or shouldn’t be at any price. And nobody should ask you to either. You know the value of this, Libra. Priceless.
In a nutshell: A new source of income could be up for grabs and that reflects what you’re truly worth. Ensure others mirror back the same message. Some things are priceless and not for sale. Don’t end up counting the cost because you wavered, Libra.

Set your new cycle in motion
Rebirth begins with a thought
Bring that power, baby!
You are the sign of personal power, control and transformation. You always know what you need to do, phoenix. So, as the new Moon strikes your sign this week (13th), you do need to simply go with the actions or changes you know you need to set in motion now. And let go of any doubts that you can’t, won’t or shouldn’t.
No excuses. Just next level fierce. No matter when your birthday falls, the new Moon in your 1st is the astrological marker for your fresh cycle. This one opposes Uranus in your 7th. The secret sauce when it comes to what you want from love and partnerships too this coming cycle. Fabulous angles occur between the Sun and ancient ruler Mars in your 1st and Neptune in your 5th on the 17th. It isn’t enough to simply dream it, Scorpio. Nothing happens unless you act on it. Above all, you want something fresh. Not a re-heated version of the past. From that perspective alone, do stop and think if someone asks for a second chance. A third? That should be a no-go area.
The Sun and Mars fuse on the 18th bringing inner resources you may have not known you had into play. You feel the desire to act, the confidence to carry it through. Above all, you now have a clear idea about what you want – and certainly what you don’t. Sometimes just a shift in our thinking is the soul equivalent of a complete rebirth, Scorpio. And that’s exactly what’s transmuting you this week. Do check out your up close and personal New Moon in Scorpio Moonscope. The sign of the phoenix is on the rise.
In a nutshell: Power on, phoenix! The new Moon in your sign marks the start of your new astrological cycle. Initiate, instigate and set something fresh in motion. Who makes it happen? By now, you should know the answer to that!

Ditch the baggage
Ready yourself for the new
Have we met before?!
This week has a touch of déjà vu magic to it even if you’ve only just met, Sag. That spiritual union becomes super important under the new Moon in your 12th. This is your house of the past and yes, also where your future is born too. Where you’ve been, where you’re going next and who with. You could meet someone who feels somehow – familiar. Consider they well may be. Especially if they are aware of it too.
The Moon opposes Uranus in your 6th. While you may be ultra-sensitive and aware that you and another may have met before, this new Moon also wants to dislodge you from any rinse-and-repeat rut you’re in. It’s one thing to realise you and someone may have a history. But yet another to let recent history repeat itself. Don’t forget whatever you do that you are in the final stages of your annual soul house declutter ahead of your fresh cycle that starts next week. All the more reason to ensure you’re not taking baggage you no longer need into it.
That bit gets easy. Any left luggage gets tossed on a soul or emotional level around the 18th when the Sun and Mars collide. It’s obvious what goes and what stays. You bring to this passion, discernment and above all, do what needs to be done guilt-free. Because deep down you know what does and doesn’t do you good, Sag. And yes, of course, this includes those habits you’re hanging on to. Which may feel familiar but which no longer serve you. What has resonance (or the who of that!), what remains relevant, the timeless and the things you can’t live without – all in your safe zone going forward. What gets cleared away simply makes room for something so much better.
In a nutshell: This week’s new Moon in your 12th shines on all elements of the past. The parts of that which come alive, that trap you or remain timeless and relevant – and what you now need to let go of. Lucky for you, it’s not hard to see what needs to remain. And what needs releasing.

Being present is the ultimate influence
Power up your people
Include yourself in the party!
Social butterfly? Life and soul of the party? That’s you as you get into the holiday/birthday mood a month early. Social situations offer the chance for romance, to make new connection and even to progress your goals. Who you know or will meet becomes the deciding factor and the catalyst under this week’s playful and social new Moon in your 11th.
It opposes Uranus in your 5th from what is Uranus’s ruling house in your chart. Dare to be yourself. And dare to stand out. Above all, this new Moon sets the scene for how your social life will unfold for the next six months. So, look at how things are and if you are somehow morphed into a boxset hermit or allowed your career to completely take over, do make the extra effort to change things up. Because unless you do, nothing is likely to change for some time.
You should actually have no trouble either overcoming any shyness or taking that step to join in this week. Conversations you have with others put you in the orbit of like-minded souls thanks to trines between the Sun and Mars and Neptune on the 17th. Your popularity increases. Plus there’s that feeling you and others are on the same page.
Make this process as diverse and inclusive as you can. Many different people from a diverse range of backgrounds may cross your path in the coming weeks. One of them you encounter could literally hold the key to manifesting a heart’s desire. If you find a group or social scene isn’t for you, don’t let this put you off. Try another. Above all, experiment. It’s not a scene but a social smorgasbord now.
In a nutshell: Your 11th rules friends, connections, your future and your goals. The point all these intersect is you, Capricorn. So, this week literally sets the scene for all of the elements coming together to co-create something game-changing. Be seen to make it happen.

Take that advice on board
Stand by what you say
Be ready to step up
A new job offer or promotion could be on the cards and if you are seeking help or advice, older and/ or more experienced connections are the ones who can offer the guidance you seek. The new Moon in your 10th sparks your ambition. Or unleashes your inner entrepreneur as it opposes ruler Uranus in your 4th (13th).
Know what you want to do or achieve. Understand the difference between constructive feedback and criticism. Above all, know who to ask if you are seeking advice. There’s also a difference between emotional support and encouragement which family and friends are there to provide. And the practical smarts and experience which only those who have made it on their own terms can give you. Knowing who to turn to or where to go is all part of a success story.
Also be seen as someone who knows when to be a leader and when to be a team player. Acknowledge those who help you or who offer a valuable contribution of their own. This is not a week to put anyone’s nose of of joint. And certainly not one to butt heads with anyone in a position to help you. If you make this mistake you will find doors slammed firmly shut. And no matter how loudly you knock, they will remain so. Whatever you promise to bring, prepare to bring it as the Sun and Mars meet (18th). Stand and deliver and others will match your offer, Aquarius.
In a nutshell: Some of you may be stepping into a bigger, more prominent role thanks to this week’s new Moon in your status and career zone. Is it time to lean in to something more ambitious, Aquarius? If someone offers advice, you may want to take it on board. But check your source!

Love looks wild and free
Explore what’s beyond the familiar
Sometimes you just gotta go with it, Pisces!
Adventure calls! Whether travelling or not under the new Moon in your 9th, prepare for the unexpected in terms of a journey or even encounters, Pisces! And get discovering just what is outside that comfort zone.
You could meet someone larger than life – with a touch of Lara Croft or Indiana Jones about them. If you are studying, want to work in the media, travel or have a vision to share with the world, they may be the key to either collaboration or making it happen for you. Fire up those goals and ambitions now and don’t be deterred by thinking any dream is impossible. And yes, that adventure could be the love variety as both Mars and the Sun trigger ruler Neptune in your 1st.
If a fresh direction appears, a solution or opportunity, it’s important you don’t over-think it, Pisces. The new Moon opposes Uranus in your 3rd. This asks just how attached are you to that plan? How flexible and willing to change direction are you? If something different is on offer than what you expected, are you able to look beyond the obvious and see the potential beyond? But don’t take too long with the process. Otherwise opportunity moves in a different direction.
That being said, if you are travelling this week avoid rushing or any areas you are unfamiliar with. Even if you are somewhere you know pretty well. That slightly dodgy part of town. That dingy back street. That shortcut you’ve never tried before. Call an Uber or simply stick to busy, well-lit areas. Adrenalin junkies – and there are a few Pisces out there who fall into this group, not the week to try free climbing the Burj Khalifa or discovering just how ‘experimental’ that vessel is. Be adventurous, bold and experience something bigger. But know your limits.
In a nutshell: Even a planned journey may have unexpected twists, turns and even heart-starting encounters this week. Even if you are staying home, the opportunity to explore something new appears thanks to the new Moon in your 9th. Love? You’d better be ready to get a little wild, Pisces.
