Early Thursday, a New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon align in the Earth sign of Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST. This Capricorn New Moon hits the reset button on our dreams and ambitions, giving us a fresh start for the New Year.
With retrograde Mercury conjunct the New Moon, this marks a time where we can be making adjustments in our career goals and personal accomplishments; perhaps taking a look at how we use our power in the world and what may be inhibiting our success potentials.
Intuition is heightened with the lunation’s sextile to Mars and Neptune in Pisces, but the details of our plans now may be hidden, overlooked, or unclear.
“This new moon wants us to challenge ourselves. That’s what keeps the mission interesting, right? And it’s not just about winning the shiny gold star here, either. With alchemical Pluto and Mercury retrograde also in Capricorn, we need to set soul goals—ones that satisfy our deepest desires while bringing material rewards. Radical Uranus snaps out of a five-month retrograde the very same day, encouraging us to dream outside of the box.” -Astrotwins
This phase of the Moon occurs at 7 degrees and 59 minutes of Capricorn, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 4 to 12 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Look for wherever Capricorn lands in your natal birth chart. This is where you are getting a new start. Light a candle; make a list. Reset intentions. xx
“As much as 2016 has tested our ability to believe, faith is not something to be underestimated. Not under this New Moon (as logical and status-oriented as it might be), not ever. Without hope, there is no endurance. Without endurance, there is no perseverance.” -Aeterna
