New Moon in Capricorn December 2022

This week we have a New Moon in Capricornon December 23at 5:17 am EDT (find your time here).

In astrology, the New Moon is a time of new beginnings and wiping the slate clean. It's when you set your intention for the lunar cycle ahead and call into your life what you want - that could be a physical, tangible thing or something like more love, a joyful daily routine, or a deeper connection to your intuition.

The Moon in Capricorn is typically focused on the long-term vision. The goals at the top of our personal mountain and all the steps we need to take to get there. Capricorn gives us the clear vision to see past the clouds of today and into the blue skies of tomorrow.

But Capricorn is about more than getting from Point A to Point B. This New Moon is asking you how you’re ensuring your path to your goal is clear through the composition of your days and routines. Saturn, the planet of time, boundaries, and structure, rules Capricorn, and the taskmaster planet will not let you pass without showing you are committed and willing to do the work.

This work isn’t completely physical and left-brain oriented either. Logic, rules, and regulations are only one half of the Capricorn equation. The mermaid or fishtail of Capricorn evokes a watery, intuitive element. It speaks to our need to balance our masculine goal-driven, to-do list methodology with a feminine, instinctive approach. How are you invoking your own special intuitive magic into your daily routines and rituals? How are these acts of divine connecting serving your greater goals in life?

This Capricorn Moon in particular is meeting up with Pluto, the planet of transformation. This adds an intensity to this New Moon, highlighting power struggles and battles between the powers that be. We have a stellium in Capricorn with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto all in Capricorn, meaning this New Moon is very grounded in the practical. But Pluto conjunct Mercury brings intense emotions to the surface. With Pluto, we often have 'shadow' emotions, like jealousy and possessiveness, which can be hard to sit with and create intense situations where we want to lash out, especially with Mars currently retrograde. The Venus square Chiron from earlier in the week is still active, so we can get wounds stirred up with this New Moon. All of this to say that even though this New Moon is in grounding Capricorn, there could be drama around this date, and with Mars Retrograde still active, we're primed with a quicker fuse than typical.

Even though we're at the end of the year, I would suggest holding off on any yearly intention setting until AFTER the Mars and Mercury Retrogrades end mid-January 2023. This New Moon however is a wonderful time for setting an intention for this current lunar month (this New Moon until the next New Moon in January). Setting an intention around Capricorn keywords, such as boundaries, structures, schedules, and rules would all do great, as would tapping into where this New Moon is transiting your birth chart.
