The very first new moon of 2016 takes place on January 9th-10th in Capricorn at 19 degrees.
New moons are always about new beginnings. Now that the partying is over, it’s time to put your best foot forward and start the new year in earnest! Pay attention to January 9th-10th, for that's when you begin to plant new seeds. Why not begin your year as you mean to go along?
The New Moon falls on January 10th at 01:30 in London and on January 9th at 20:30 in New York.
This being a Capricorn new moon it's all about being practical and getting organised - getting all your ducks in a row ready for a brand new year.
Bear in mind that this new moon happens during Mercury retrograde in Capricorn. This gives you another stab at something which you may have tried once in the past. Whether this is a project or a relationship, you seem to have better prospects this time around. You may even get a chance to revisit something or reconnect with someone that had gone off the radar for a couple of years.
What is fantastic about this Capricorn new moon is that it's conjunct Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn and trine Jupiter in Virgo - planets of connections, power and luck. This is an auspicious combination - especially for financial, business or even medical matters and anything that requires careful forward planning. This is great news if you have an ongoing project that has been flagging and needs a power-boost. This combo is especially lovely for earth and water signs.
The new moon also brings important news when it comes to love. This is because the ruler of this moon is Saturn in Sagittarius, currently conjunct Venus planet of love. This means that you may get another chance at something close to your heart. With Saturn presiding here, this time it may well be for keeps...
Last but not least, the new moon is square Uranus in Aries, so it may well hide a few surprises. Expect the unexpected in certain departments… (more in your sign by sign analysis!) Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn - especially those born between the 5th and 14th of their respective months will feel this jarring influence most strongly. Don’t jump the gun. This new moon is in Capricorn, a sign of perfect composure and self-control, so try your best to stay calm and do your due diligence. "Be prepared!"
Good things to do during this Capricorn New Moon:
- Take stock of your achievements so far and plan ahead
- Organise your finances
- Review old goals and renew your commitment
- Relaunch a project or come up with a business plan
- Renew your vows
- Take a pragmatic look at your relationship / or crush
- Get serious!
