🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

🌟 New Moon in Capricorn 2021 🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

New Moon in Capricorn: Wed 13 Jan 2021 at 3pm AEST at 23 degrees Capricorn

Full Moon in Leo: Fri 29 Jan 2021 at 5.16am AEST at 9 degrees Leo (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching:  Jupiter and Saturn are visible low in the western evening sky just after sunset – but only for a couple of weeks before they disappear into the light of the Sun.
Mars the red planet is high overhead at sunset.
Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn sky as the Morning Star, gradually lower each morning in the eastern sky until by the end of this lunar month, she will have disappeared into the light of the Sun.

A powerful New Moon falls in Capricorn on Wed 13 Jan.  This is the absolute best time to make your New Year’s resolutions for 2021 as the energy of this Capricorn 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.  Pluto is part of this New Moon energy, so any resolutions you set now will be especially powerful.

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.

mountain goatCapricorn 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 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 into 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 is close to this New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If 23 degrees Capricorn is 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, eg relationships for Venus.  You may well have had a difficult time of it over the last twelve months, as this is almost exactly the degree of the Saturn-Pluto and Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in Jan 2020, and Pluto is still very close to this degree.  It’s as if the Universe is telling you that finally you can leave the energies of the last year behind and you can at last move forwards.

Remember to create your New Moon intentions (and your Resolutions for 2021) within 24 hours of this New Moon.  The intentions you set now will be particularly powerful because of the conjunction with Pluto.  The New Moon is exact at 3pm Queensland time (AEST).
