Creative Power

The quest to achieve your personal best is activated with the Capricorn New Moon. Both luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in Capricorn, so this lunation rings in the New Year.

With the growing light, deep in winter, an inner resolve takes hold and sustains us.

Another way to muse on this lunation is to have a ponder about Saturn, ruler of Capricorn.

A huge dose of reality can have a stabilizing effect, since we know what we're working with. A key is finding traction, a weight for the feet, from the awareness of practical realities -- without being dragged down by it to a point of inertia. With other factors in play, this is heavy magic. Here now, we align longings and purpose, with actions. Look to the houses for what's up.

Capricorn New Moon in the First House: (House of Aries and Mars)

A very fortifying New Moon! Upgrade your classic style, perhaps putting in more time (not necessarily money) for a put-together look. Your Ascendant in Capricorn gives you a solid, "the Rock" presence for others. Consider how to parlay your presence to step into roles of leadership, high achievement.

Insights about (public) roles to play, for more satisfying engagement in the world. Your physicality is up front -- does your movement reflect your true power? Theme: Integrity in Action

Capricorn New Moon in the Second House: (House of Taurus and Venus)

This New Moon is a boon for matters of material security.

What's on your wish list? Tangible forms (a grand piano) that tie in with a desire (to play music) have a grounding effect. Relax into what's real. Rest in the cave, and put your ear to the ground of Mother Earth. Great lunation for settling in to an artistic practice, toward mastery. A commitment to a project that takes time and effort is satisfying. Dedicate yourself now to using what you have, to grow and author what's nourishing. A new ground to stand on -- one that favors success with hard work over time. Theme: Stabilizing Abundance

Capricorn New Moon in the Third House: (House of Gemini and Mercury)

This lunation concerns the lively social scenes of everyday life. How about social media with focused intent! Polishing or upgrading your newsletter, blog or profile. Conspiring to create circles that go deep, are meaningful and useful. Being there solidly for someone in your family or social web. Cultivating strong community/neighborhood ties, with an eye on thriving in potentially tough times. Taking a leadership role in situation that requires messaging/organizing with varied people. Following a curiosity, toward competence in that area. Theme: Purposeful Socializing

Capricorn New Moon in the Fourth House: (House of Cancer and the Moon)

A new beginning on the home front -- a place of power, traditions, sustenance.

If Capricorn is in your fourth, the roots of lineage (ancestral, emotional) set a firm foundation. What traditions (beliefs, hierarchies, religious practices) are honoring of your unique soul? Which tie you to a false reality? Releasing any burdens and negativity acquired by family osmosis. Respecting what's been inherited. Strong boundaries, and respect for private space at home. Theme: Intimate Grounding

Capricorn New Moon in the Fifth House: (House of Leo and the Sun)

With Capricorn in the 5th, you're reserved and self-controlled. This lunation brings vitality to areas of love affairs, creativity, and the notion in general of "doing what you love." Here you see the wisdom in taking risks. It's time for your uniquely fashioned persona to show up, in ways you can delight in -- art making, flirty romance, being with and around children.

Consider activities that are just-for-fun, and take you out of the daily grind. A new ground for what moves the heart -- start an illustrated journal, join a social club or a dignified dating service. Adventure and self-expression are good investments! Theme: Rewarding Play

Capricorn New Moon in the Sixth House: (House of Virgo and Mercury or Chiron)

Capricorn in the 6th house gives you a strong constitution and work ethic. Your natural leadership shows itself, in varied situations, but especially when you're organizing or tweaking a system. This New Moon is for musing on channels for this productive energy. A change or plans for change can arise, to do with your work rhythm, responsibilities (chores, caretaking) and health. You get hits on what needs refinement, purification or streamlining. Theme: An Enriching Groove

Capricorn New Moon in the Seventh House: (House of Libra and Venus)

This lunation brings fresh ground to stand on in your primary relationships. Capricorn in the 7th makes you cautious about who you allow to become a significant other. Now it's time for musing on these key allies (or the desire for them), since they are foundational to the rest of life. A most timely New Moon for inviting a life partner, and asking that all barriers to this be removed. You might experience earth-shattering changes with close friends, or decide yourself that it's time to find greener pastures. Theme: Partners in Life's Dance

Capricorn New Moon in the Eighth House: (House of Scorpio and Pluto)

A lunation for catharsis and renewal.

Capricorn in the 8th gives you intimacy with surrender -- the magic of giving over to a larger force. What's in harmony with your soul's sense of security now, and what's not? A time to review deeply embedded entanglements, and extract any that are dead weight. It could be emotional bonds, or financial obligations or investments. You could also be entering the mystery to shed or transmute some soul material. This launches a path of power, aligned with earth, the elements and your own indigenous lineage. An initiation into earth magic and manifesting. Theme: Metamorphosis

Capicorn New Moon in the Ninth House: (House of Sagittarius and Jupiter)

Capricorn in the 9th makes you a pragmatic (practical) philosopher and traveler. This lunation offers up ideas for learning adventures that meet your standard. It might be beginning a course or gaining credentials that furthers your goals. It's a fresh start, for discovering yourself through new experiences. With a Saturnian flavor to your 9th, you'll gravitate to what bolsters your ability to be powerful in your world. It could be a hands-on apprenticeship in a faraway place or a challenge of your intellectual or physical endurance. Theme: Seeking Practical Wisdom

Capricorn New Moon in the Tenth House: (House of Capricorn and Saturn)

Capricorn in the 10th gives you uncommon drive to make your mark. This is a lunation to align actions with the legacy you're creating. How do you want to be known? What areas in your life are calling out for a more efficient approach?

Some epiphanies are possible about your calling -- what short term habits have to be foregone to achieve long term success? What makes you feel solid and self-contained? What's the path to having the authority to bring your vision to reality? Super New Moon for considering overall life purpose, with career goals. Theme: The Magic of Manifesting

Capricorn New Moon in the Eleventh House: (House of Aquarius and Uranus)

A reset for your social sphere. Capricorn in the 11th means you gravitate to purposeful friendships. Often there's a mutual sense of obligation. A New Moon here brings a review of these arrangements -- which are current, and which are based on who you were the past? What circles are you moving in? Do they stimulate and make you feel part of grander fields of thought? Is it time to refresh your friend list? Being discerning with friends and colleagues, and keeping current enables you to be alert and responsible to those in your Now. Theme: Social Security

Capricorn New Moon in the Twelfth House: (House of Pisces and Neptune)

With Capricorn in your 12th, you have an admirable sense of responsibility for the lost, troubled and those in dire need. Acting for the greater good brings opportunities for leadership, recognition. Your spirituality is expressed through total engagement in the physical, with its heartbreak and beauty. This lunation brings a revived commitment to sharing your wisdom and experience. There can be a setting in the bones, of what's been deeply known, from solitude or your own uphill climbs. Take time to rest and be restored. This is a full retreat New Moon, where spiritual forces and guides can be felt close at hand. Theme: Magical Realism
