Capricorn New Moon
December 23, 2022
What’s It All About?
The Capricorn New Moon brings in the 2023 New Year. It’s time to set your New Year’s goals and intentions for the coming year. Hopefully, you took time at the recent Gemini Full Moon to clear away any stagnant energy in preparation for the 2023 New Year. Especially, since 2008 the established structures of society on a global level have been undergoing profound change as humanity gears up to shift to a galactic identity as humans.
Capricorns are the bosses of the zodiac and are represented by a goat (a sea goat in recent years) on the zodiac wheel. Capricorns are ruled by Saturn, one of the most serious, diligent and hard-working signs of the zodiac. Capricorns are stern taskmasters and hard-working (prone to workaholism). They take their responsibilities seriously and project a realistic outlook which can come across as unnecessarily pedantic and restrictive.
Capricorns could easily win an award as the eternal pessimist of the zodiac. Their mature deliberation is admirable though they can seem more like a boring, wet blanket only out to stifle new initiatives that show promise.
Capricorns can stubbornly refuse to change with the times and if they’re required to make concessions they can become overly moody and show an irascible temper. These are all control strategies. Remember the cardinal signs of the zodiac (Capricorn, Libra, Cancer and Aries) control the changing of the seasons. In other words, they have the established role of controlling, not being controlled.
A cardinal sign, Capricorns like to orchestrate and lead any changes. Your best strategy when dealing with a Capricorn is to promote things in such a way that Capricorn feels it was their idea in the first place. Be sure to point out how it serves/supports their favorite objectives and key interests.
On the plus side, Capricorns are the most determined sign in the zodiac. They are extremely well organized and completely loyal to a fault. Their ambition to achieve lofty goals for themselves and their loyal friends, family, company, employees and constituents (if a politician) are unmatched by any other sign in the zodiac.
Capricorn’s can be quite sensitive to criticism. If you want to get on with a Capricorn, show genuine appreciation for all that they’ve accomplished and how much admiration you have for them.
What’s Up in Your Chart?
Tips for how the Capricorn Moon may affect you personally.
Everyone has the Capricorn New Moon influence in one, or more areas of their chart. Here are a few areas of your chart where you can experience the Capricorn New Moon influence:
- Saturn, the taskmaster of the zodiac wheel, governs the sign of Capricorn and rules the 10th house of career and status in the world.
- You’ll want to pay especial attention to where Saturn is located in your natal chart and what personal planets and points aspect it (when you were born and currently by transit)
- Saturn is also the old ruler of Aquarius which rules the 11th house of friends and associations.
- Saturn is currently completing his transit of the sign of Aquarius and will ingress into Pisces the end of March of 2023. This means the 10th (until the end of March), 11th and 12th houses are activated for change in the 2023 new year.
- The moon moves quickly through each sign and house, so whatever happens, though it may leave a lasting impact upon your psyche, the emotions will be transient. If you feel extreme tension emotionally at the Capricorn New Moon, best to let your emotions settle (maybe take a relaxing sea salt bath with aromatherapy). Wait until you feel calm and grounded, not in a triggered emotionally reactive state, to take action.
- This is the perfect time for setting your new moon intentions for the coming 2023 new year.
