Moonshine Horoscopes — Pisces New Moon Edition

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Over the Pisces New Moon next week, I suggest taking some time to reflect on your Dad’s emotional state when you were a child and how it affected your ability to feel like the ‘real you’. Information is becoming available that will help you connect the dots concerning his emotional experience of life and its impact on any internal splits you’ve experienced between who you are and who you show to the outside world. If at times it feels like you’re reaching into mist, unable to see what you are reaching for, keep stretching out. What you will make contact with is a more solid sense of who you are. Think of this mist less as a veil you can’t see through and more as a byproduct of the process you’re engaged in. Like a blacksmith crafting a sword in a forge, as you submerge your hot and malleable authentic self through the cool waters of emotion it will strengthen into a solid, strong form. That inner core you hold in your metaphorical hands is strong enough to be the face you show others. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — A number of important connections with a few new people, particularly a few women, are beginning in your life. These connections may take many forms — friends, mentors, colleagues, collaborators. Hold your authenticity up in every interaction, rather than the side of yourself you think people want to see. Showing your unfiltered, genuine self will draw like-minded people to you. You’re more discerning now about whom you want in your network. As you meet new people, begin this selection process from a place of checking in with your values, then seeing if the other person’s values and priorities match yours. You will have options in who you allow into your network, and it’s always a good day when you have options. I suggest you look for those people who not only have something to teach you, but to whom you also have something to share. Sharing is often one of the most direct ways to experience a deeper sense of meaningful connection. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Your Moon, in the dualistic sign of Gemini, comes with two distinctively different modes of feeling and experiencing your life. At times, it has felt hard to live both, as though you had to choose who to be each day. I suggest you dump any ideas or perceptions that you have to be one or the other; rather, see both as being true expressions of your authentic self that are able to co-exist. A new career opportunity is arising that is calling on you to show up as both aspects of yourself. It’s as though you have a double tool belt to draw on to get the work done and you are being called on to use all your tools. What we often refer to as your ‘calling in life’ is itself dualistic. It may have two distinct sides or be two distinct things. As you bring both sides of yourself to the work that you do, notice any sensations of deep satisfaction that resonate within you. This is a sign that you are in line with your genuine inner self and participating in your highest calling. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — What was your mother’s role in the family dynamic? Did she have her own healthy outlets for expressing herself at work? In hobbies and with friends? As children we don’t always notice the profound impact our mothers have on us. You are making contact with the ways her relationship with herself affected you. The astrology looks like you’re meeting the different roles she took on and whether or not she was able to be herself in those roles. Just as the attitudes she had taught you things as a child, what you are learning now will teach you much as an adult. As you peel back the complex layers of what your mom did or did not do to honor her authenticity, you will learn much about how this colored your outlook on life and your attitudes toward yourself. Remember that your personal attitude toward living the life that is right for you is just that — personal. It’s about living your life for you rather than someone else, even your parents. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Your Moon sign is ruled by the Sun, the only body in our solar system that produces its own light — though over next week’s Pisces New Moon that light is physically blocked by the Moon. I propose you view this darkness not as a void, but rather as a fertile moment. What you are connecting with is your potential to influence your commitments in a positive manner that brings greater balance to the dynamic for all involved. Notice how much influence you actually have over resources — yours, and those belonging to others. Be conscious of any power-struggle dynamics that develop; those usually center around who is controlling the resources involved. You don’t need to engage with anyone who is trying to gain this type of control. Rather, do what you do best — shine brightly from a place of knowing what you want and who you are. Hold to what you know to be true and others involved in your agreements and collaborative projects will follow you. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — The dynamic with a close partner is shifting and evolving. I suggest you view this shift as being more about you than other individuals. You are working through a re-evaluation of what is most important in your relationships. Relationships are often mirrors held up to let us see aspects of ourselves. As you look into that mirror check the ways that you are expressing love toward yourself. Start from a place of making your relationship with yourself your primary relationship; remember, relating involves establishing a connection. As you move deeper into yourself look at your perceived shortcomings or imperfections, then offer an olive branch to your inner ‘you’ in the form of acceptance. Put another way, extend yourself the grace not to be perfect. This self-love will ripple out into your other close partnerships, helping you grow closer to a partner. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — The ruler of your Moon sign, Venus, is moving through Pisces, meeting up with the New Moon next week. An opportunity is developing to begin new patterns of healthier, more balanced living — both emotionally and physically. The health angle of your chart involves creativity, beauty, honoring your emotional sensitivity, and drinking plenty of water. I would also include nurturing your body through healthy foods and exercise. The patterns you begin now will carry you for a long time. What you are building can be thought of as holistic living — taking into account the whole rather than just the individual parts. As you make small changes to your approach, note how they have a larger impact on your overall health. Good emotional and physical health is important for keeping your creative energy high and replenished. With a replenishing well of energy, you’ll be better able to smoothly keep yourself feeling good and have an overabundance of creativity to share with others and your most important projects. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — The current astrology is inviting you to take a risk in terms of your sexual identity. I propose that you consider this as less like a leap across a canyon and more like actually letting something go. What you are letting go of is guilt, fear and shame (those things known as issues) that are putting some barriers in the way of making full contact with your authentic self. Leaving those feelings behind is less difficult than it may initially seem. As you make contact with a deeper sense of who you are and what is right for you, you’ll be able to fluidly slip around those not-so-high-or-large walls. Sexual identity involves knowing what you want, need and desire and then sharing that first with yourself and then with others. As you come across new people and experiences, meet them with all your cards on the table. Note the sensations that accompany this move — particularly the one of confidence. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Strong feelings are pushing up from inside of you, like something is building up and about to burst through. I suggest you not try and keep the lid on; rather, let what’s moving up inside of you break through a ceiling and come to the surface. A new understanding is shifting into focus the importance of living as authentically you; having your highest needs for growth, independence and support met and honored. I would caution against seeing any confusion or lack of security as emotional instability. You are separating an old viewpoint from the newer perspective of authenticity. Being completely real can come with a feeling of crisis or being too bold. The place to find the strength and security you seek is self-acceptance: authentic acceptance of who you are and what is true for you. Remember, this will take time. There is no rush, only a need for steady and persistent action. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — The next few weeks involve a review of your needs, more specifically how you are communicating them. Anger, frustration or a lack of confidence or sense of worth are indicators of needs that may not be fully met. The feeling is a sort of internal arrow to look one layer deeper. I suggest you take the approach that you are the authority whose job it is to make sure that your needs are honored and respected. This looks a lot like setting boundaries and holding people to those boundaries. Think of it as stepping out and claiming your space. What you actually claim are two things — the right to exist and the right for your true needs to be met. Remember, you can’t force people to do what you want, but you can lay out the rules of engagement. People around you are listening to what you have to say; first take the time to get clear on how others can meet your needs, and then convey that message to them. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A door is opening this month to let you slide easily through a series of changes regarding your perception of self-esteem. It’s like you’ve been moving through a wormhole and are now coming out the other side. Inside wormholes time moves differently — weeks can feel like months. You’ve done a lot of work and covered a lot of ground relatively quickly, yet it felt like anything but quick. Now is a moment of arrival; you may not have realized how far you have come. But you have grown and moved a long way. Over next week’s New Moon, you are experiencing a synthesis of feelings and concepts surrounding your inherent worth. You’re learning to feel good about being alive, and what that idea entails. Once you remove any doubt about your worth, it’s surprisingly easy to orient on your unique value to existence. Self-esteem is the resource that all other facets of your life grow out of, and you’re in a truly fertile moment to cultivate lasting self-worth. — by Genevieve Hathaway

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Pisces is a flexible, fluid, experimental sign and with your Moon here it can come with a unique relationship to being genuine and real. Like a shapeshifter, you naturally meld to your environment. This can be a useful tool, allowing you to blend into and move through a variety of situations and social groups. But when needing to have a solid sense of self from which to draw it can feel like a challenge. How do you stand up and shout to the world ‘this is who I am’ when you seem to always misplace your pedestal from which to shout this declaration? That is, it’s like your inner ‘you’ is so slippery it’s hard to hold onto on a consistent basis. Next week’s potent New Moon in your sign is helping you find that solid place to stand on amidst all the change and uncertainty of life. It’s connecting you in a very real and tangible way with the richness of your soul, the depth of your creativity and the power of your potential. You are ready to begin a new journey into a life that is fully supportive of all you have to offer. — by Genevieve Hathaway
