Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Is it time to upgrade? The annual Taurus new moon powers up your second house of work, money and practical luxury. Look for clever ways you can save and budget—without depriving yourself of pleasure. While you don’t want to break the bank, part ways with objects that have a broken-down feel to them. You might even make a pledge to support ethical companies from here forward, even if that means sacrificing a few of those fast fashion fixes. Also, Aries: Ready your resume and perfect your pitch. You could land a promotion or field an enticing job offer under these moonbeams.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Happy cosmic New Year! Today, 2023’s only new moon in Taurus electrifies the skies and refreshes your emotional feed. Time to leave those painful situations behind you and adopt a “What have I learned from this?” outlook. Certain relationships may come to an end, or you could finally bury the hatchet and stop talking about THAT subject…like, ever again. Sit down today and make a wish list: What personal milestones and accomplishments would you like to manifest by the corresponding Taurus full moon (a game-changing lunar eclipse) on October 28? Be “greedy,” Bull and ask for what you REALLY want.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Take a pause, Gemini, and a few deep inhales and exhales. The annual new moon in Taurus energizes your twelfth house of closure and healing. New moons mark beginnings, but the twelfth house rules endings, making this one a bit of a paradox. Our advice? Honor the transitions in your life. Sometimes closing one door is your access to opening another. Gently release an outmoded situation and welcome new adventures—even if they take time to fully reveal themselves. Need to bring more ease to your life? This would be the perfect day to start a meditation or yoga practice.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Ready to make the world a better place? Today, 2023’s only new moon in Taurus lands in your humanitarian eleventh house and awakens your inner idealist. Volunteering or jumping into a community service project would be a great way to meet new people. A budding collaboration could lead to an amazing team effort or world-changing project by the corresponding full moon (and lunar eclipse!) on October 28. Get ready for a meeting of the minds, even a virtual one, as the eleventh house also rules technology. Do your devices need a refresh? Update system software or shop around for new equipment.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Bring on those #LeoGoals. Today, 2023’s only new moon in Taurus spotlights your tenth house of career, structure and long-term ambitions. Over the coming two weeks, you could receive an enticing job offer or a project that helps you solidify your reputation as an industry disruptor. Got your eyes on a lofty ambition? Since new moons can take up to six months to unfold, aim for a slower but steady ascent. As you climb, it’s important that you align yourself with the power players and decision makers instead of making them feel threatened by your grabs at the brass ring. Build those relationships and you will soon be among their ranks.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Wanderlust hits you hard under the vibes of today’s new moon in Taurus and your jet-setting ninth house. There’s a wide world out there, so start making plans to explore a new or far-flung corner of it. Don the rose-colored glasses too. This new moon restores your optimism and gives you the courage to explore a visionary path. Whether you’ve been dreaming of a startup venture, pondering a degree program or fantasizing about a year abroad, no globally minded goal is too lofty today. Plant the seeds of your intrepid adventure now and watch them bloom by the Taurus full moon (also a galvanizing lunar eclipse) on October 28. Virgo writers, mediamakers and teachers will be especially blessed by these moonbeams.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Ready for an inside-out transformation? Today, 2023’s only new moon in Taurus pings your alchemical eighth house, helping you spin those heavy-as-lead situations into pure gold. This won’t happen overnight, but if you start tackling those stumbling blocks now, you’ll see genuine results by the corresponding full moon in Taurus on October 28. This new moon also spotlights long-term finances and investments as well as shared resources. You could be inspired to buy or sell real estate or to find ways to earn passive income. Perhaps you’ll just creatively cut costs with a “co-op” model. Think: potlucks, carpools, shared community-supported agriculture (CSA) boxes and babysitting trades.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Two is your magic number—well, if the annual new moon in Taurus and your partnership house has anything to say about it! Whether for business or romance, teaming up can take you far in the coming six months. But don’t go casting for someone just like you. A complementary force would be a better fit for dynamic duos that get fired up today. Already attached? This new moon helps you find inspiring new ways to co-create. Relationships could go from casual to exclusive, both in the romantic or joint business venture realms. Make no assumptions though, Scorpio—you need to hear that your sentiments are echoed or ask for a contract in professional pairings.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Friday May 19
Lace up those cross-trainers and get ready to break a sweat. Today, the annual new moon in Taurus fires up a six-month wellness mission. Whether you’ve been a sedentary couch potato or the gold star student at your hot yoga studio, you can still make a fresh start. Set some manageable goals—and avoid fad diets and punishing workouts. As you start making small daily changes, you’ll build new habits that become part of your long-term lifestyle. Remember, creating vibrant well-being is a marathon, not a sprint. Rather than eliminate entire food groups, add more clean, green options to your plate. This new moon could also inspire you to get organized. Go on, Sag—tackle that office reno or basement reorg!
