There is a New Moon at 0 degrees of Capricorn on Monday the 22nd of December, which signifies a powerful new beginning on the physical plane. The cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are the initiators of the zodiac, with 0 degrees of these signs being extremely powerful points of action, often on a world-wide scale. This is also symbolised by the fact that the ingress of the sun into those signs is associated with the change of seasons: Aries heralds the spring, Cancer welcomes the summer, Libra brings in the autumn breeze and Capricorn marks winter.
As a cardinal earth sign, Capricorn is the master builder of the zodiac - the master initiator on the physical plane. Because this New Moon is super-charged at 0 degrees - right on the winter solstice - we are likely to experience its effects more strongly. We usually get the Sun going into a sign then the moon joining it a little while later. This time both Sun and Moon enter Capricorn almost simultaneously and form a conjunction - i.e. a New Moon - at 0 degrees. This gives the winter solstice and Sun in Capricorn an extra boost, marking a powerful moment of initiation in our lives.

Good Things to do during the New Moon in Capricorn
From December 22nd and for the next 7-10 days, while the Moon is fresh, anything you begin will have the force of the entire Universe behind it! Here's some ideas:
- Write down your goals for 2015 or even further into the future - where do I want to be in 5 years?
- Take full responsibility for your life. We often feel like we are at the mercy of events, but we invariably have much more control than we give ourselves credit for! What do you want to attract into your experience? Direct your mind to that and reclaim your power!
- And why not aim high while you are at it? This is no time to sell ourselves short! Let's be the best we can!
- Do you want to be self-employed? Do you have an idea for a creative or business project? Why not use the boost of this new moon to come up with a business plan? You can also talk to someone experienced who can help.
- It pays to examine your life structures now. Do they enhance your growth? Are you happy with the way your life is organised? Or do you want to do something differently?
- It's also a good time to attend to practical matters (taxes, paperwork, structural repairs etc) - and administer to all the things that will allow you to pursue your goals unencumbered in the coming year.
- You can address health matters too - especially involving teeth, joints and bones - but also fertility, since this is an earthy new moon.
- And remember to delegate. You don't have to go it alone!
