New Moon in Capricorn

The new moon in Capricorn will be exact at 2:15 am PST, 5:15 am ET, on Friday, December 23, 2022.

This new moon is super and happening so close to the winter solstice, adding extra potency. It is the darkest time of the year, which means that everything is getting brighter. What (metaphorical) seed will you plant, nourish and watch grow… How do you envision it in 6 months, when its flourishing under the brightest light? It is actually best to wait til just after the new moon to do your intentions...when there is a touch of light to see.

Since Capricorn rules the body and the discipline needed to make practical long-term changes, it is not surprising that New Year's resolutions happen during Capricorn season. What is important to you right now with your body, work, or spiritual life that requires some physical discipline? Don't wait for the first to start resolutions in these areas, do it now for better results.

This new moon is squared by Jupiter in Aries. This has the potential to give you the energy needed (there is a lot there with this placement) to move through stress and make big changes. Don't let opposition stall you. Keep things moving.

Also of note: 

Mars, retrograde in Gemini, is sextile Chiron in Aries. Old wounds may surface. It's a favorable time to talk through problems that may have resulted from hasty statements or flighty behavior. It can be a time to heal. Maybe nothing major, but any healing is good.

Uranus in Taurus is trine Venus in Capricorn...check out your work or day-to-day environment, there is potential for unexpected romance. Maybe you'll see a different side of someone as the wacky energy of Uranus harmonizes with the typically underappreciated Venus, (she's not too happy in Capricorn). Open your eyes tand let that weird thought out. Who knows? If not romance, at least some pleasing moments of enjoying life on planet Earth. If your day is disrupted, observe and appreciate gold linings.


Up ahead:

If your 2023 goals are more about following through on unique ideas or inspiration (air and fire goals), you will do better to wait for the Aquarian New Moon on January 21st, 2023, at which point Saturn and Venus will be conjunct in Aquarius as well, making it a great time to start long term plans or alliances related to art, money, aesthetics, or partnerships. Unconventionality is encouraged.


Bid adieu to 2022...big changes are coming in 2023. I am ready.
