On Sunday afternoon (Jan. 2nd), at 1:33pm EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 12.5 degrees of Capricorn, launching a new Moon cycle.

There are three quick things I would like to mention before we get started:

  1. 1. On Jan. 8th we have a webinar “About all of 2022” Join us for a full forecast about the coming year and the setting of great Intentions for 2022! This webinar is not included in the monthly Forecasting Forum Series, so please sign up even if you are a Star Member! Early Bird Special is only $27 — for everyone!

2. I also want to mention that I will have a BIG 2-week Sale on my website from Jan. 8th-23rd! Everything will be discounted, and I mean, EVERYTHING! So stay tuned for that or keep checking my website for details!

3. Lia, my very talented, new, Certified Soul-Based Astrologer who joined my practice recently — we had a promotion for the first 10 people to book a Reading with her to get a 50% discount in exchange for filling out a brief survey and giving their feedback about her services! We still have 3 Whole Life Readings left for 50% off, so click on the link here now, to get this great discount! Thank you for all the enthusiasm to connect with Lia. We are able to get 10 people for the exchange 🙂 You can still connect with Lia, of course at her regular fee, which is still very affordable 😉

New Moons are good times to reflect on our lives and set new intentions. This is therefore a good time to go within, to plant a seed for anything we would like to accomplish over the next 28 days, and maybe even beyond.

In Capricorn, this New Moon directs us to reassess our relationship to power and authority. The next section of this forecast will dig into this in more detail — you may also want to watch my New Moon video 🙂

The highest vibration of Capricorn is self-mastery: the development of responsibility, resourcefulness, reliability, the ability to set realistic goals and establish healthy boundaries. The next 28 days are a perfect time to work some more on these areas.

This is the first New Moon of the year, and since Capricorn represents the quest for self-mastery on the physical plane, some useful questions you can ask yourself include:

What is my relationship to self-mastery? Am I going about things in a realistic way? What does “setting healthy boundaries” look like to me? What do I know about my own limitations? Other people’s? What are my priorities in connection with long-term goals? What does the word “integrity” bring out in me? Where am I on the road to self-mastery?

As best as you can, prepare for the future, make commitments, and recognize responsibilities — in other words, nurture your dreams in a realistic manner.

Focus on setting and achieving practical and attainable long-term goals, one step at a time, one day at a time — this is not about immediate results, it’s about the quality of the foundation you are building.

Capricorn also invites us to set the kind of realistic limits and boundaries that allow everyone involved to learn from the consequences of their choices. Ask yourself: Where in my life am I able to set realistic limits and boundaries? Where am I not? What might I be afraid of when I don’t?

Capricorn relates directly to the level of our maturity. Ask yourself: What would taking 100% responsibility for my life look like? What if I responded to situations in a way that respects and serves all those involved?

Do I respect the laws of matter? What am I willing to undergo to overcome adversity? How committed am I to that?

Let’s talk about some of the aspects connected to this particular New Moon chart…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 10-15 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for the month’s Moon cycle — and the very best time to do this is after the New Moon becomes exact (but definitely not during a Moon void of course).

So this month, there are two best and most potent times to set intentions — the first would be any time between 1:33pm on Sunday, Jan. 2nd, and 11:21am on Monday late morning, Jan. 3rd — and the second would be between Monday late afternoon at 5:44pm and Tuesday early afternoon at 1:33pm (EST/New York time).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉
