Jack/Jill of all trades Ty Mitchell -- the porn star also known as drag queen Kelsey Dagger -- is also known as budding queer astrologer Kelsey, Star Witch. Following yesterday's new moon in Scorpio, Kelsey has prepared horoscopes intended both to help your process whatever the new moon brought up for, reflect on the past month, and prepare for the new lunar cycle.
"New Moons are currently occurring toward the end of each sign, so use these horoscopes to reflect on the past lunar cycle," explains Kelsey. "New Moons are apt for setting small intentions, and to orient ourselves toward stuff that feels ready to be dealt with. Sometimes we don't navigate our lunar cycles all that clearly or rationally, but can use this time to check in with ourselves about where our hearts are going, where they have been, and where they keep coming back to. You can read for your sun sign, but if you know your rising sign, you should read that one, too. Take these as offerings, not predictions. Part of the agency you possess is the agency to interpret in ways that help you most, as you navigate the world and make sense of your place in it."
