New Moon in Capricorn 12.23.22

New Moon

December 23

 @ 2:17 AM PST

 1*  Capricorn

The New Moon in Capricorn  arrives just a day after the Winter Solstice, powering up that chart and setting in motion the next quarter! As a note…. Solstices and Equinoxes are always turning points…and  they put energy in motion for each quarter! We are heading into a year that will be most extraordinary, so best to lay the foundation with your Capricorn New Moon intentions now!

This New Moon in Capricorn makes a tight square to Jupiter in Aries, both at 1*, emphasizing the tension between Cardinal signs ( both wanting to be the boss at the same time!) What we have is a combination of a long-term vision and the short term goals!  And,with a Square, we always need to be prepared to give  and take to avoid negative results!

The  Saturn ruled Goat  of Capricorn is typically painstaking and known for its stamina and longevity, and Mars ruled Ram in Aries is usually impatient and heads forward with less care and preparation! Results are achieved either through following rules or via a more immediate reckless approach. While both may have their virtue impacts could differ! Best Practice….use both!!!

And, to complicate the energy on new beginnings, Mars in the Mercury ruled sign of Gemini is retrograde until 1.12, and Mercury stations RX in Capricorn on 12.29.22!

2023 will have a slow start!

Plan, dream, review, restructure and revisit all your ideas…..tidy up what is not finished, clear the decks, because when the New Moon in Aquarius occurs on 1.21.23 ….. Be Ready!!! Life will begin to accelerate like wild!!!

The New Moon chart brings emphasis to our responsibilities, obligations and commitments. Karma, integrity, and truth principles along with your Souls purpose and intentions for this time in your life are to be reviewed and worked on!

Remember, where you place your attention is critically important now as there are powerful forces of manifestation in play!

Reflect on what connects you with the higher vision of your life..that is where the gold is!

Mercury  retrograde in Capricorn on 12/29 – 1.18.23 is a good time to reflect on your priorities and plans for 2023 and  consider where and what you want in this New Year. However, it is not really conducive for decision making, initiating projects or embarking on new ventures……Yet!    

Plan….rework…and be open to New Insights!

Best to wait at least until Mars goes direct on the 12th but it’s better to hold off if you can until Mercury stations direct on the 18th before you take direct action!!We now have the opportunity to set in motion NEW WAYS of building that which has broken down or changed! The Capricorn New Moon challenges us to take charge and commit to a Different course of action!  Saturn, ruled by the Sea Goat, is a powerful manifester and master builder. Super important to set your intentions and be clear about what you want to create and build in 2023.

Capricorn rules both fear and authority.  Doing just to DO, because we think we” should”, rather than what we instinctively  know is true and right, just won’t cut it! This is a new time on our planet, with new frequencies. Following our heart and soul is what will get us where we desire to go. And, the very active energy of this New Moon will assist us, as long as we FOLLOW our personal truth!!

The Capricorn part of all of us is learning to master our inner realm rather than trying to make the outer world conform to our judgement of what it ” should be”. This means opening up to a “higher order”, that may appear to our limited perception to be totally disordered and out of control. Chaos is actually the ability to surrender and let the Divine Rule. Implicit in chaos is Divine Order. This New Moon asks us to trust that we can create something more miraculous than we imagine when we let go of our limited agenda and allow the surprising and unexpected to come through! In other words….Let Go and Let God!! Be guided by INNER SIGHT  as well as integrity, morals and truth principles as you set your intentions and plans! Jupiter in Aries will greatly assist us here bringing in inspiration, courage and boldness to move forward and Think Big!!!

The best crystals to use for your ceremony are  Black Onyx, and Garnet for the Capricorn energy, Clear Quartz to amplify your intentions, Carnelian for the  Aries energy to inspire us, Amethyst  to connect to the Higher Realms, Rose Quartz for love of self and others, and always, Moonstone to set the New Cycle!

Here are  intentions designed for using the Capricorn energy.

Read through and use what you would like……or make up your own!

Clarity    I welcome clear vision and inspired action!

“A seed of passion and desire lives within each of us. The seed is our spark, a voice that remains us… who we are at our core. It keeps us on track, inspires our mission. and craves clarity. When your vision is clear and you know what you want, taking inspired steps forward it feels more effortless. If things are not yet clear, the sincere act of asking and listening will lead you there. Imagine you’re an eagle soaring over majestic landscapes that make up your life, embrace all that you’ve already created and acknowledge your journey. The bigger picture bird’s-eye view can help steer you as you welcome clear vision and inspired action.” From the Moon Tarot Deck
