New Moons are a time for rejuvenation and manifestation, and if you have a lack in your life, then this is the time to fill it, through a new experience, person, or item. We must make space for beginnings and foolish behavior during New Moons. Mind you, we are all fools when beginning something new, so don’t be scared to get experimental.

For newbies, a New Moon is when the Moon and the Sun meet at the same degree, forming what astrologers call a conjunction. As an astrology practitioner, I’m all about precision because cutting through diamonds is possible. New Moons are a time for setting intentions and goals to manifest. Take the theme of each New Moon as inspiration to bring forth the best version of yourself!

Real talk: Getting burned is one of the worst feelings eve—especially if it’s by someone or something who you had high hopes for. I’m sure you know that feelings change, and it’s best to go through life with no expectations, however, we all have expectations. For example, your boss expects you to do your job, your landlord expects your rent to be paid, and your bartender probably lowkey expects at least a 15% tip. Sure, no expectations or low expectations is an “it is what it is” approach to life, but are you bruising your standards by living with learned helplessness? After being beaten down, bruised, and burned, your body and mind call it quits and give up on trying.

Now, let’s take a moment to consider how our efforts to be grounded in reality may unintentionally hinder our ability to dream and experience pleasure. This brings us to an interesting astrological event. The New Moon in Gemini occurs on June 18, 2023, at 12:36 A.M. Eastern Time. As this New Moon forms a square to Neptune and a semi-square to Venus, it presents an opportunity for reflection. It invites us to contemplate how our focus on reality might sometimes limit our capacity for optimism, imagination, and finding joy in unexpected moments. By keeping hope alive and embracing a more optimistic mindset, you’ll be surprised how you can positively transform your life for the better.

Read your horoscopes based on your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. Read for your Sun sign to gain insight based on the version of yourself that you’re maturing into, your Rising sign to reflect on your present state, and your moon sign guidance on how to nurture your inner child.

Aries

Sweetheart, give into your childhood dreams. The greatest rewards come from allowing yourself to try and try and try again. Each attempt is a new lesson, another reason to be more grateful. Appreciate how you tumble and fall, even if you’re left with boo-boos and teardrops every once in a while. Imagine what it feels like to actualize what you’ve imagined.

Taurus

You of all people deserve to think bigger, to dream louder, and to speak with intention. Dear Taurus, why wouldn’t you be able to actualize your goals and desires? By being born, you have entered into a universe of limitless possibilities. Your willingness to speak up will make the difference between manifesting or suppressing the results of your potential.

Gemini

Babes, maybe you need a finsta or a private blog. Your ability to express yourself is integral to your personality. If you feel as though you have to put a lock on your mouth or hide from yourself, it’s time to ask yourself why? Tapping into your Gemini energy means allowing yourself to be an active communicator. What’s got your tongue?

Cancer

Finding the words and the courage to share your valuable insights can be a challenge in itself. The world is filled with diverse perspectives, contrarians, and devil’s advocates. Sometimes, people may cut you off or try to silence you on the sole basis of their envy. Even so, a part of your calling for the next two years is to learn how to step into the role of teacher.

Leo

How do you hold onto what’s already been long gone? Living in the past can lead to sadness and grief if you’re so focused on past hurts that you forget to look to the future. This New Moon is time for you and your community to identify what’s needed to charge forward.

Virgo

Feeling aligned with your intimate partners and pals may feel especially challenging right now. Be careful about keeping your head in the clouds or being so down your earth that you bury your potential. We love a hottie who knows how to pick themselves up and chill out when necessary. Being too hot or too cold is working in extremes; learn to be reasonably neutral.

Libra

When you meet your needs, you indirectly develop the ability to help others. Practice patience and grace when met with social rejection. The ability to flow through interesting interactions can make the difference between being a ghost or being notorious. Remember that sometimes it’s best to walk away with a neutral face.

Scorpio

Have you considered that you’re still getting over someone? Of course, a previous love affair doesn’t take you off the market, even if you’re still waiting for the scars to fade. Practice awareness of your feelings. Who taught you what happiness feels like? Taking stock of your former lovers may feel cringe—and a cringe is an emotional reaction.

Sagittarius

Baby, maybe you’re projecting familiarity and calling it feelings. Whether the feelings be good or bad, it’s important to separate the past from the person in front of you. It’s one thing to take note of your emotions, it’s another thing to believe a person will behave as you expect them to. Try to hold no expectations, or at least allow your expectations to change and develop.

Capricorn

Those positive changes won’t work if you are committed to self-sabotage. Love, I know your energy is all about work hard and play hard(er). It’s what makes you such a crowd pleaser when you want to be. Mind your bad habits, vices, and questionable patterns. Don’t tell yourself that that cocktail is healthy because it has fresh ingredients in it—if you will drink, drink and acknowledge it. Refrain from mixing poison with health.

Aquarius

Sweetheart, let yourself have fun. How are you miscalculating your value? Whether it be through humility or bravado, it’s important to sit down with yourself and assess yourself. Consider yourself from a third person’s perspective. Perhaps you are what they call a catch, an asset. You owe it to yourself to see yourself clearly. The world loves confidence.

Pisces

Your inability to see yourself clearly is a surefire way to halt your creative process. How will you truly know what it is that you actualize if you have yet to actualize? An invisible sense of self might lead to purposeless creations. Take time to be at home and put your space in order. Rediscover yourself through posters, books, and memorabilia.
