New moon influences horoscopes in week ahead

The new moon can inspire this week – and could provide Aries with the impetus to give their homes a zesty makeover.

And it could encourage Sagittarians to you work towards understanding themselves in more depth.

Astrologist Patrick Rundell explains what else the stars may have in store in your horoscopes for the coming week.

Aries 21 March – 20 April

Taking care of yourself can help you move through this week more easily. While there may be times when you feel as though someone has lost interest in you, this might not be the case. Quiet reflection could help you see the truth of things and make it easier not to take things personally. On a homely note, the New Moon can inspire you to give your place a zesty makeover.

Taurus 21 April – 21 May

Having second thoughts about your direction in life? Key aspects can bring personal insights on this matter, encouraging you to trust your feelings. While you may be looking for something fresh and exciting, this isn’t a good time to take on more responsibility. Keen to get out and about? The company of friends could make quite a difference by boosting your mood.

Gemini 22 May – 21 June

Does someone seem to be playing games? It’s best not to jump to conclusions. Are they keeping their distance? If so, don’t take it to heart. Rather than overreacting, spending time in peaceful surroundings could help spark powerful understandings. Plus, as Mercury moves into your money zone, it’s time to take stock, get organised and prepare for a fresh financial start.

Cancer 22 June – 23 July

If finances seemed to pose a problem last week, this week can bring a new slant on the same issue. This time around Cancer, you’ll be prepared, and a breakthrough may be possible. The Sun in your sign encourages you to believe in yourself, even if certain situations pose a challenge. Ready to tap into your full potential? Upbeat Jupiter encourages you to take that leap of faith.

Leo 24 July – 23 August

Relationships involve give and take, and yet you may feel you’re the one doing all the giving. As Venus faces off with Saturn, your best efforts might seem to produce little response in another. With this being a temporary aspect, don’t let it faze you. If you want to discuss this openly, try later in the week when negative feelings could have dissipated and a solution looks possible.

Virgo 24 August – 23 September

Feel held back by your job or current routine? It may seem that you never get a chance to express your real talents and skills. This could lead to you looking for new opportunities. Avoid doing anything on the spur of the moment. Instead, plan for any intended changes. Ready to move in new and welcoming circles? This week’s New Moon can be a call to reach out to others.

Libra 24 September – 23 October

Is a romance going off the boil? Try not to worry, as although the Venus-Saturn aspect can leave you feeling abandoned, this is a temporary aspect. By the end of this week there may be a lot more interaction. In addition, the New Moon in a highflying zone is perfect for kick-starting a plan or opportunity that might take plans to the next level. Persevere, and you could do well.

Scorpio 24 October – 22 November

Wondering whether you deserve the success you are seeking? You do, but if you feel a touch of impostor syndrome it may be down to past experiences. You can get over this by having more belief in yourself. The Sun in your sector of exploration could be a call to acknowledge your full potential. Connecting with a mentor at the time of the New Moon might get things moving.

Sagittarius 23 November – 21 December

Your mindset could be holding you to ransom, Archer. While you are normally keen to explore new terrain and to leave your comfort zone, something might be holding you back. If you give in to this it will be difficult to attain your dream. While a temporary aspect can trigger such feelings, the New Moon encourages you work towards understanding yourself in more depth.

Capricorn 22 December – 20 January

If you’ve been spending sparingly then you may be ready to gently re-open the money taps and allow a little more financial flow into your life. You could also donate items you no longer need, or offer your services for something in return. An awkward aspect might make you aware that holding onto your cash is not as helpful as investing it in things that can improve your life.

Aquarius 21 January – 19 February

A delightful Sun-Uranus link can bring positive developments out of the blue. These might help offset issues that may be causing some strain and tension. Perhaps someone is behaving out of character, or things aren’t going as planned. A breakthrough is possible, and it could come from a totally unexpected quarter. Simplifying your schedule can ease things too.

Pisces 20 February – 20 March

While you may have some spectacular ideas, others might be less inclined to depart from the tried and trusted, which could cause a few issues. If you can give them solid proof that what you’re suggesting works, then everyone can benefit. Mercury’s move into your creativity and romance zone encourages you to believe in yourself and in all you have to offer the world.
