Here we are blessed with MORE Capricorn energy!! Currently we have the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto in Capricorn. And now with the New Moon of the New Year.. we can expect to have more accountability with the actions we take! The energy will be focus on the Capricorn/Cancer axis. Capricorn is the ruler of the 10th house and our career aspirations, social status, responsibility, and authority in our lives. Capricorn's ruling planet is Saturn, and Saturn reminds us to have patience and discipline with our determination!
The Moon's ruling sign is Cancer. Because Cancer is such an emotional sign, there can be a tendency to cling to the past, emotions may run deep as we try to figure out what will bring the depths of nurturing and security we're looking for. This New Moon with it's Capricorn/Cancer influence will help us take responsibility with our emotions and GET REAL with where we want our life's path to go! If you weren't able to make New Years Resolutions, this time would be PERFECT for bringing them to light!
Throughout the Moon's cycles, there is a death and rebirth happening. During the New Moon we let our instincts lead us. Being in Capricorn the focus will be on moving forward efficiently and letting go of emotions that are holding us back; reclaiming personal power and stepping into more leadership, and enjoying stable friendships and relationships where everyone contributes equally. Those with a planet or angle at 22 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer, may feel the strength of the New Moon more directly. So let's take a look at how this might effect your sign!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)- This Moon activates your 10th House and you might feel a struggle to make yourself known or be concerned at how people view you. If you're looking for power, you need to realize it comes with responsibility! Don't feel as though you are entitled to authority. Finding a balance between your influence and why you seek it emotionally will be of importance. Be careful not to let it consume you thought! The ambition to succeed is there, be sure the reason you're working so hard is really what you want at the end result!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)- This stabilizing Capricorn Moon finds itself in your 9th House of philosophy, personal freedom, and reaching out. This is not a time to be limiting of yourself or condescending, you'll need to keep an open mind. With Saturn in your 7th house of relationships, you could be ready to take things in a new direction. You would do best to trust your actions are done with the best intentions, even if others might not accept your decision. Your emotional fulfillment will be directly related to the changes you implement at this time.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- As this Moon finds itself in your 8th House, your house of shared resources, and transformation; you may experience this energy in many ways over the next month! And with your ruling planet Mercury also being there; your thought process and connections with others may be reborn. You feel things are at a turning point and you're ready to start doing things that are necessary to set you straight! You are usually one that is honest and don't hold back what's on your mind. Stand true with what you feel and believe!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- Relationships and career will be a MAJOR focus for you with the Moon in your 7th house of commitments and business partnerships. You could be looking at things in a new light, although maybe a little more realistically! Your emotional nature has you wanting to try things in a different way and taking more responsibility with what you're feeling and WHY you're feeling it. If work has been a struggle, try approaching it more creatively so that it feels more like an investment in yourself! Now is the time to bring about a consciously directed growth within yourself and with the work you put out in the world!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)- During this New Moon, it'll hit your 6th house of health and daily routines. If things have been in a slump, it's time to get yourself back on track! Maybe that workout has been put off or your resolution to give something up has been tough. Take this energy and put it to good use!! Try to find the focus you need as the Sun finishes out it's time in Capricorn as well. If you've had any health problems, now would be the time to address them. Establishing a routine for a healthy body and mind can be beneficial!
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)- This New Moon finds itself landing in your 5th House, house of creativity, children and hobbies. There may end up being an emotional "block" that comes about, but it's more about the lesson that there's a time for play and a time when work needs to be done! This may further be enhanced by your ruling planet Mercury being here as well. Try not to over think things too much. If you have children, take time to play games with them that you enjoyed.. or if your older, there's nothing wrong with a couple of beers for an adult game night either!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)- You can expect this New Moon in your 4th house to be bringing focus to your home and family. Events from the past may unexpectedly have you thinking of how it affects you in the present. If there has been strained relations within your family, now is the time to address them. Your appreciation for family is more easily shown. You might also find yourself wanting to tackle home projects that you've put off to make your home more how you've wanted it to be or if relocation has been on your mind, this may be the start of that action!
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)- You may feel a strong drive to achieve what you've been looking for through intellect as the Moon moves through your 3rd House of communication and thought. This will be a time to expand your ideas! Important conversations will allow you to take responsibility for your choices in the future, just make sure to take others opinions into consideration. If you have a special talent, you might find satisfaction in teaching others your skill. Since this is also a time of finding stability, establishing or re-establishing a meditation routine may prove beneficial!
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)- Finances will focus in heavily with the New Moon in your 2nd House of income and self-worth. It might be tough to realize what's serving it's purpose for you and what's expendable! You may be living beyond your means or you could start to question your understanding of security. Especially as your ruling planet Jupiter is in your 7th house of business associates! A change may be necessary, but taking the leap of faith might just be what it takes to have you see what you're really living for! If you need to work on yourself, now is the time to do it!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)- This is YOUR New Moon! If you've held yourself back due to fear of not succeeding, it's time to let go of that fear! Being in your 1st House of your personality and approach, you will decide your capabilities. Don't get in your own way! You have strong recuperative abilities that let you bounce back from any struggle that's been happening. Just be careful of impatience and compulsiveness. Your ruling planet Saturn is in your 11th house of hopes and dreams and you'll be able to take this time to really get things in order to bring about the change you've been wanting to achieve!
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)- With the Moon in your 12th House of enlightenment you may need to look inward. Don't lose faith in your goals, but you might be surprised if you shift your focus from recognition for your actions to feeling fulfilled by the service you're providing. With your modern ruling planet Uranus in your 3rd house of thought it's time to listen to your inner voice, rely on your intuition and take time for some self contemplation. Your traditional ruler of Saturn is in your 10th house so you will be able to evaluate things honestly and acknowledge your faults AND your virtues!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)- This Capricorn Moon finds itself in your 11th House, the house of groups and friendships. You may find this energy as being restricted or be faced with pressure from others. It could be the time to step outside of yourself or your comfort zone for a change. You may be the one that needs to take the lead in organizing a group experience if you want to spread your humanitarianism. The 11th house is also one of hopes and dreams. Use this time to find your inspiration and harness the energy to realize your deepest passions!
