PEOPLE June New Moon Horoscope 2024

Fireworks are going to have an extra dark backdrop this Fourth of July!

Why? Because this month's new moon will take place on July 5 this year, completely blacking out the night sky as it enters this stage of the lunar phase.

The new moon's appearance is the complete opposite of its full moon counterpart, which often appears bright and radiant when viewed from Earth at its peak. This month's full moon, nicknamed the Buck Moon, rises on July 21, 2024.

Despite the new moon's faint appearance when looking up at the sky, its astrological energy will undoubtedly be present and significant for all zodiac signs. It will take place in Cancer, the fourth zodiac sign on the wheel.

PEOPLE's resident astrologer Kyle Thomas says this Water sign aligns with domesticity, emotional security, our ancestors and families. He predicts "it will energize" our lives, "allowing us to reflect on the past and better understand our foundations so we can build toward our greatest plans and endeavors."

July's new moon kisses Mars, which Thomas says can bring "passion and excitement to our lives and relationships." It also smiles upon Saturn, he adds, which can bring "stability and strength to our plans, emotions and goals."

The new moon also unites with Venus, which Thomas says can bring "pleasure, beauty and harmony to our lives." The other planets are in a rare dance, he notes, which means that "relationships, situations and endeavors launched at this time will be multi-faceted and possess many layers."

Above all, positive energy is upon us. "Success, happiness and good fortune can be found personally or professionally," he adds.

However, if you’ve been feeling stagnant in your position, Thomas says "it’s time to look elsewhere." Dust off your resume because "an amazing job could be listed in the days following this new moon."

Thomas says "partnerships will be highlighted" during July's new moon, which means that your existing relationships — in business, love or collaboration — could see "a shift," hopefully for the better!

"An engagement or opportunity to move in and grow closer could now be at hand," he says. If you’re not in alignment, however, "the stars will make it especially clear now."

Singles can share this vibe too by "putting themselves out there to find someone with long-term potential," Thomas says.

Pay attention, Aquarius! It’s time to pick up the pace, as your weeks ahead look very busy.

July's new moon energy may put "attention on your physical health," so Thomas suggests you "consider ways to improve your fitness or diet."
