January 9 is the first new moon of
the year, and it arrives smack dap in the middle of Capricorn. This event is
great for those who have big plans for this year. Capricorn is an amazing sign
for building structures, creating rules, and formalizing your goals. Add new
moon energy to the Capricorn sun and you'll shoot out of the gates like a
rocket. Be aware, however, that Mercury goes retrograde from January 5 through
January 25. Imagine this Mercury retrograde as one of the engines on your
rocket at half-power, because this is a time of delayed communications and
technology glitches. Just take your time, be sure to dot your i's and cross
your t's, and you'll come out on the other side with flying colors. The power
of this new moon in Capricorn is priceless.
Aries: This new moon falls in
your tenth house of work, public knowledge, reputation, and social status. This
is great time of year to focus on your career, Aries. What changes would you
like to make? Where do you see yourself by this time next year? Now is the time
to get clear while the energy of the new moon power is in Capricorn, and you
can create new structures for your career success.
Taurus: The Capricorn new moon falls
in your ninth house of new experiences, foreign places, long-distance travel,
and legal matters. In many ways this could be great, because new experiences
are just what the new moon is all about. If you are working to bring forth
something new with your education, personal philosophy, or religion, this is
the time. And Uranus is square this new moon, meaning unexpected events could
happen, so move slowly and breathe deeply anytime you're feeling overwhelmed.
All is well.
Gemini: This new moon, in your
eighth house of transformation, is a perfect placement for you, dear Gemini. The
side of you that handles extreme circumstances, ecstasy, sex, death, and all
manners of mergers (financial and otherwise) are spoken to by this time in your
chart. Note that this is a conservative new moon in Capricorn, so you won't
need to worry about any unexpected shifts. Now's the time to give it all you
have early in the year and create a momentum.
Cancer: The Capricorn new moon with
visit you in your seventh house of marriage and partnerships. The seventh house
is literally who you are when you are in the company of just one other person. If
you've had some rocky experiences lately in the areas of love and romance, now
is a great time to gather yourself, clear out the old energy, and set a new
path. You can't change the other person, but you can adjust your perception.
Leo: Lucky you! The Capricorn new
moon lands in your sixth house of details and process. Now is the best time for
you to create new systems with which you run your life. You'll have all the
energy you need to get a new workout routine going or to create a new eating
plan. Good for you Leo; you'll have the systems in place that you need for
Virgo: A good time is ready to be
had by you, dear Virgo. The new moon falls in your fifth house, which is
reserved for play and entertainment. This is the part of you that comes out
when all the work is done and it's time for some fun. Let your hair loose,
Virgo. (Yes that's not your usual modus operandi, I know.) Just put down your
need for perfection and let go. Have fun this year—make today the beginning of
a light-filled 2016.
Libra: This couldn't get any better,
dear Libra. The conservative and slow-moving Capricorn new moon falls in your
fourth house of symbolic foundations brought from your family of origin. This new moon will help you begin new
traditions in your home. You will also be able to honor your personal history symbolically
and move forward this year with new ideas for family and home life. The
Capricorn new moon is steady and deep, helpful in creating new structures.
Scorpio: The Capricorn new moon
lands in your third house of communication style, siblings, and the things you
do that don't require much thought, like driving and running errands. This is
great time to renew your relationships with those you see often but don't see
at all, like the person who delivers your mail, the woman who rings up your
groceries, or the guy on the treadmill next to you. How about a heart-to-heart
with the sister you speak with every day about nothing? You'll have good energy
for deep conservations with family and light, happy talks with strangers who
are actually not strangers at all.
Sagittarius: You're in store for a
great Capricorn new moon, indeed. The new moon lands in your second house. This
house impacts how you deal with your possessions, money, and self-esteem. If
you desire to make more money or change your environment in some way, the
energy of this new moon in Capricorn says "If you feel it's possible, than it's
so!" This new moon is all about your ideas about yourself, so be mindful—it
swings your year into a great start or a not-so-great one. It's up to you.
Capricorn: Happy birthday Capricorn
and what a great present this new moon is for you in your first house of self.
It's the beginning or the year, and it's also a time for you to determine who
you will be this year. You have the momentum of the entire universe behind you and
within you to achieve your goals. Who will you be this year? What do you desire
this year? Let yourself fly, you have the wind beneath your wings.
Aquarius: This new Moon in Capricorn
sits right in your house of karma, your inner workings, thoughts, private
feelings, and secret affairs. This is the house that addresses who you are when
you are alone. What a gift, Aquarius! You get to start the new year with a new moon
dedicated to your inner world and desires for yourself. What do you need to be
happy? Take this energy into your heart and mind and let it lead you home to
Pisces: Dear dreamy Pisces, this

of the clouds and into reality. Capricorn makes everything solid because it
builds foundations. The new moon in your eleventh house means creating
partnerships with like-minded people and organizations. This is a great way to kick
off your year.
