🌟 Second chance – and best cosmic timing! – for NY resolutions 🌟

Second chance – and best cosmic timing – for your New Year resolutions!


CapricornNew Moon: Thurs 11 Jan 2024 at 9.57pm AEST at 20 Capricorn



The New Moon falls in Capricorn on Thurs 11 Jan at 20 degrees Capricorn.

I know we’re past 1 Jan now, but the New Moon in Capricorn is always the absolute best time to make your New Year’s resolutions as the energy of this New Moon gives you the self-discipline and determination to carry out the incremental steps you need to take during the year to achieve your goals.  So this New Moon represents a second chance – and the best cosmic timing – to make your NY resolutions!

A New Moon always represents the beginning of a new cycle in some part of your life.  The Capricorn New Moon invites renewed focus on self-discipline, goal-setting, improving time management and introducing more structure into your life – all in the service of moving forwards on your chosen path.  Remember the image of Capricorn the goat, climbing slowly but steadily up the mountain, one step at a time, guaranteed to reach the summit.

Capricorn is an Earth sign, grounded, sensible and practical – excellent at dealing with material reality.  The sign is ruled by Saturn, the ultimate taskmaster who sets firm boundaries, exercises self-authority and is very cautious. The downside  of Capricorn (every sign has its downside) is the tendency for caution to become fear, leading in some cases to freezing (‘petrified’ means turned to stone) so that no action is taken. Saturn can also be a fierce inner critic, sowing self-doubt that can stifle those Capricorn ambitions. Caution is fine, yet make sure you continue to move forwards.  It’s time now to accept full personal responsibility for your life, and to realise that YOU are the only one who can make the necessary changes for your life to move in the direction you want.

Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart is the area of life that will be most strongly affected by this New Moon – for example, if it is in your 6th house, this is an opportunity to bring more self-discipline to your daily routine and health regime; if it falls in the 2nd, this will apply to your finances.  If you are not sure where Capricorn falls in your birth chart, think of the area of your life that could most benefit from some self-discipline right now – you’ll probably tune into it intuitively!

If your birthday falls close to this New Moon (within a day either side), this is the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your sense of identity and purpose in the world.

If you have 20 degrees Capricorn strong in your chart, or if any of your planets fall at this degree, a significant new cycle is starting in the part of your life represented by that planet, such as relationships for Venus.

Remember to create your New Moon intentions (and your Resolutions for 2024!!!) within 24 hours of this New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 9.57pm Queensland time (AEST).
