Taurus Zodiac Signs (April 20 - May 20)

Go off, Taurus babe! A newfound sense of self-confidence is blessing you with the fortitude to take action. Don’t be afraid to plant seeds; they’ll flower beautifully. “You’re making some major changes to how you’re showing up in the world,” says Ash. “And with both Mercury and Jupiter joining the party, this is a great time to speak your manifestations into reality.” Whether you’re expanding your financial horizons or tuning into your self-worth, this inspiring new moon is all about putting yourself first.

Cancer Zodiac Signs (June 21 - July 22)

Have you been eager for a change of scenery, Cancer? This lunation will shed light on your unconscious thoughts and desires — embrace them. Nothing is too grand to manifest. “Take advantage of Jupiter’s year-long journey through Taurus and work on grounding your aspirations in daily action. You want it? Work for it!” Ash says. After a long, hard day, retreat inward with a glass of pinot and a bubble bath.

Scorpio Zodiac Signs (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

You’re feeling the love under this new moon, Scorpio, although it might not be the kind of romance you’re used to. Taurus’ romantic energy will inspire you to spice up your love life by inviting new traditions into your life. (Think: weekly date nights or nights out with single friends.) “You’re being given a chance to deepen your connection with someone or possibly the opportunity to make new connections,” explains Ash. “Don’t rush, and remember to enjoy yourself.”
