To find out which area of your life this new moon will likely affect, check out your sign and/or rising sign below…

Aries: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Fourth House of Home and Family, inspiring deeper self-care. You can start by making sure your abode feels comfy and cozy, creating an environment conducive to restoration. Additionally, by incorporating more self-care rituals into your routine (e.g., workouts, more greens, better rest, etc.) you’ll help keep your mind clear from unnecessary worry and doubt. You may want to use this time to reconnect with loved-ones or establish new “feel-good” connections. This will add emotional security to your enterprising spirit — a winning combination!

Taurus: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Third House of Communications. Make it a priority to re-establish very healthy self-talk over the next two weeks. During this time, there’s likely to be a lot of buzz: Emails, phone calls, messages, and invitations will be aplenty; use your powers of discrimination to determine which warrant your time and attention. You’ll have an opportunity to incorporate new persons, places and things into your lifestyle: Perhaps you’ll start exercising before work or taking a class in the evenings. Make your daily goings-on more conducive to your overall good.

Gemini: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Second House of Self-Worth and Finances. Focus on all the things you appreciate about yourself, from your physical features to your personality traits. Opt to wear the color sky blue often, as this color will activate your throat chakra (your self-worth center); activate this chakra further by expressing yourself through talking, music, dance, art, etc. Once you have increased your self-worth with the above and feel good, go after that raise, client or new job; aligning yourself energetically with your goals beforehand will be time well-spent!

Cancer: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your First House of Identity. You’re going to be reborn — or hitting “reset” on one or more life areas. Appreciate any challenges you’re now facing — it’s a necessary part of your manifestation process. To create your “new you,” spend some time feeling how you’ll feel once your goals are accomplished. Milk this energy to facilitate the Law of Attraction. Further, you may want sport a new look reflective of your new you, or strengthen your body and aura. With fresh, stronger energy, you’ll be able to handle more abundance for the best birthday year yet!

Leo: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Twelfth House of the Subconscious. For the next two weeks, you will serve yourself well by catching up on sleep and rest to prepare for your rebirth on your birthday. Though showmanship may be part your persona, allowing yourself privacy now will invariably serve your fans! Thus, economize your energy; if you’ve accrued some time off, a “staycation” would be great. Further, now is the perfect time to fantasize about your ideals and hold onto the feeling you expect to feel once they’re fulfilled. This will help you manifest all of your heart’s desires!

Virgo: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Eleventh House of Hopes, Friends and Community. This is the house of “Why not?” Why not should you have whatever you want in life? The more you allow yourself to shine, the higher the likelihood of your greatest hopes and dreams coming to fruition. Of course, it may take a village: This summer, you’ll have the opportunity to find like-minded people from whom you can gain encouragement and support. Seek out groups that share your interests, and start building your tribe. This is also a great time to find or reconnect with friends who really “get” you.

Libra: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Tenth House of Position and Honors. The energy is ripe for rising up the ranks, so be prepared to take on some extra responsibility. If you’re looking for a promotion or to jump into another job, this is the new moon to facilitate that. Additionally, incorporate more structure and self-discipline in your life over the next 30 days. By mastering your own “systems” you’ll be able to do so for entities outside of yourself — managing a team, for instance. Giving yourself structure now will help you successfully color outside of the lines next month.

Scorpio: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Ninth House of Expansion. You’re likely to have itchy feet, Scorpio, wanting to break free and experience some adventure! During this time, your mind is yearning for something galvanizing. A trip to a faraway land would be ideal. If that’s not possible, you can expand your mind in other ways: Visit a museum, watch foreign films, or get absorbed in philosophical or spiritual subjects for “a-ha moments.” Exploring the unknown will help you redefine your belief systems, so you’ll start perceiving more limitless potential. The sky is the limit!

Sagittarius: The New Moon in Cancer will be transiting your Eighth House of Rebirth. Over the next two weeks, you may be having a lot of awesome, intense sex! If not, there may be another kind of intensity. It’s likely you’ll be urged to dissolve or set boundaries with a person or entity. The whole point of this transit to leave it reborn stronger. Sometimes we get stronger with other energy in our lives; other times, weaker. The onus will be on you to decide whether others’ resources will help or hinder you. Base your decision to combine or separate by gauging what will give you the most power and relief.

Capricorn: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Seventh House of Partnership. If you’re in a partnership, now’s the time you can achieve more depth, kissing away hostilities and resolving to compromise. If not attached, you may want to commit to someone you’ve been seeing, or find someone worth your commitment. Further, this New Moon can help you find the perfect business partner or associate — someone who can lend you the support you need. The Seventh House also includes your “public,” making this a great time to recommit to them and reacquaint yourself with their needs.

Aquarius: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Sixth House of Health and Work. Since your “health is your wealth,” make it a point to establish a healthy lifestyle around which your work can flourish. This may mean creating daily rituals that keep your body and mind in tip-top shape. Once committed to your health, think about what kind of projects you want to be involved in, and what you hope to accomplish work-wise over the next six months. If you feel your current job isn’t inspiring, now’s the time to make an adjustment to your position, or find a new job in which you’re more engaged.

Pisces: The New Moon in Cancer will transit your Fifth House of Pleasure. The Fifth House is about anything that you create — children, artwork, books, crafts, music — so put your focus there for the next month. In addition to expressions of yourself, the Fifth House is about having a good time. Enjoy karaoke with friends or take a trip to Disney — anything that inspires the kid in you! Finally, this house also relates to romance. If you’re partnered, you can reignite the passions in your relationship. If you’re not hitched, romance is in the air, so put yourself out there if you want to be swept off your feet!
