The New Moon will occur on June 18 at 4:37 p.m. and last until approximately 10 p.m. on June 21.

Recognized as both the first and last phase of the lunar cycle, the phenomenon is often associated with new beginnings and fresh beginnings.

But according to master astrologer and author of the book Llewellyn Sun Sign, Lesley Francis, there is no overall meaning of the New Moon that can be applied to each astrological sign. In fact, it varies between everyone.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, she said: “Astrologically it is the Moon’s job to translate light from the Sun. So the connection between where the Sun is and where the Moon is on the day of a person’s birth says a lot about the character, temperament and how that individual looks and functions. in the world.

“The Lunar cycle begins with the New Moon and it offers a chance to create the focus for the next Moon cycle. The New Moon is a time to operate right now, jump into things spontaneously, refine and hone your instinctive nature. as a guide to the unknown.

While many people feel they have no control over how astrological events impact their lives, Lesley said it is possible “to use the energy of the New Moon throughout this time,” between June 18 and 21.

She explained, “The key to working with the New Moon is setting your intention (both short and long term), identifying and visualizing what you desire, and making wishes (always the beginning of fulfillment). of any objective). This is not the manifestation phase. This is the phase of anticipation and novelty and discovering the seeds waiting to be planted.

Sharing her exclusive predictions for each of the 12 zodiac signs, Lesley revealed what awaits us during the New Moon phase.


The astrologer claimed that those born under Aries will have “no lack of ideas, thoughts and plans”. She urged, “Play with the urge to talk and get insight and perspective from others. Just initiate things in your head. But know that now is not the time to act physically.

Those who identify with the sign of Taurus may undergo a “major overhaul” of their personal values. Lesley claimed that “new opportunities” will arise to expand both life and its wider world, but “all in a good way” that should be embraced.


The astrologer said, “Mentally and physically, you cannot sit still. So write things down. Otherwise, all those crazy and wonderful ideas will disappear. Relax. You don’t have to act on them now. Just keep them to have a starting point.


People born under this zodiac sign should “expect a lot of dreams,” according to Lesley. She urged, “Embrace the creative door that is opening. It gives you the opportunity to formulate next steps and put words – at least for yourself – on your deepest desires. Something that hasn’t been easy lately.


Leo will have their hearts full during the New Moon phase, but of what, they may not be sure. The astrologer said, “Take this time to remember that your heart contains nothing but love. Everything else is a distraction. So put your brain and all those questions aside and just feel that love. It will remind you of who you are and that you are, in fact, whole.


Lesley reassured Virgo that “it’s okay to seek recognition”. She explained, “Yes, hard work is a reward in itself but you want more and you deserve more. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and express all those wonderful creative ideas that are forever bouncing around inside of you. This will bring a major and unexpected opportunity.


Those who don’t feel satisfied with the “same old” should know that “life will get brighter,” but only when they give themselves permission to move in a new direction, Lesley said. She warned: “You don’t need to know the end result – it’s not a known quantity at this time. Simply choose a new path and take that first step.


The astrologer said, “It’s time to tune into your inner power source. And then get out your indoor vacuum. Many new and wonderful visions and ideas are waiting to be discovered, but first you must get rid of all the mental and emotional detritus that clogs your lines of transmission. Rekindle your passion.


Lesley urged Sagittarius to “cherish the people in their lives.” She clarified: “It gives you the opportunity to appreciate, not only what they have brought to your life, but what they have shown you about who you are. Bringing with it an abundance of optimism and an infusion of anticipation and excitement. The fuel of your life. So be ready.


According to Lesley, this new moon is the time to put aside all plans for a simple goal. She urged, “Take time for yourself. Your circuits are overloaded. Maybe you don’t see. But it’s true. Play. Rest. Laugh. Trust that everything will be fine.


The astrologer suggested “joining the party” to “lighten your mood and kick-start some major revisions to your plans for the future.” She suggested those born under Aquarius should “chill” and reboot to add that “elusive missing piece you’ve been looking for.” She said, “Celebrate. Things percolate from there.


The astrologer warned: “Take care of your home. And not just your physique. Your interior needs a little TLC. It has accumulated a lot of worn thoughts, emotions and judgments about who you are that stand in the way of a new chapter in your life. Start cleaning and you will find new shoots already growing.
