January's new moon in Capricorn means business

A new moon in Capricorn is headed our way, and it's ushering in new beginnings that have everything to do with our ambitions and reputation in the world.

Governed by taskmaster Saturn, Capricorn is known for its disciplined and goal-oriented nature; its cardinal earth is symbolic of our spiritual roots and the way we cultivate our soul purpose in this lifetime. What are you aspiring towards? What do you hope to accomplish in 2024?

Despite initiating a brand-new lunar cycle, the new moon remains an enigma. For instance, this occurs once every month when the moon aligns between the Earth and the Sun, causing the side that faces Earth to be in complete darkness. This can also explain the moon’s invisibility from our view on Earth, as the sun can only illuminate the far side of the moon. In any event, one should never underestimate the moon’s lack of visibility during this lunar phase, as it is a representation of fertility and renewal. 

On January 11 at 6:57 a.m. EST, the moon will renew itself via 20 degrees of hard-working Capricorn. As always, be sure to check which astrological house belongs to this degree, as this is the area of life where you’re experiencing this new beginning. Also, the intentions you set now could come to fruition within the next six months, specifically during the full moon in Capricorn in June. Consider this an opportunity to reassess the structure of your professional life and make strategic decisions moving forward. 

Are you fully committed to this professional venture? Are you holding yourself accountable? The new moon is presenting you with a clean slate for you to set realistic goals for yourself and lay down plans for the future. On another note, this lunation can also serve as a reminder to create balance between your personal and professional life. Are there boundaries that need to be set at this time? What needs to occur in order for you to achieve your goals?

The astrology of January’s new moon in Capricorn is also a plus, especially when considering the fact that it’s the first lunar cycle of 2024. It will form an exhilarating trine to Uranus (before it stations direct on the 27), which can be equally as insightful as it is radical and unexpected. Also known as the planet of rebellion, innovation, disruption, and surprising breakthroughs, Uranus prefers to go against the status quo and think outside of the box. 

Are you ready and willing to do the same in your professional life or with regard to your sense of authority? Mars is also transiting this cardinal earth sign, a place where the red planet exalts and can work at its fullest potential. The best part? In addition to increasing our productivity levels, Mars will meet with lucky Jupiter in an expansive trine, which makes this new moon all the more auspicious. Jupiter magnifies whatever it comes in contact with, so this could allow us more room for growth and opportunity. 

Reach for the stars! It’s time to get clear on your goals and commit to a plan of action.
