The New Moon takes place in the cardinal sign of Capricorn on January 13th, at 12:01am ET, 2021.
The first New Moon of 2021 marks a pivotal transition from the completion of the past and the hard lessons learned, to the new pathways we forge for ourselves now. As we begin 2021 with this New Moon in Capricorn, we are reminded that slow, steady, persistent perseverance will prevail even through the roughest and wildest terrain.
Capricorn is an Earth sign symbolized by the mystical Sea-Goat. Equipped with mighty-horns and spiraling fishtail, the Capricorn energy of this New Moon asks us to prepare for the journey ahead.
As we look forward, it is important to both honor where we are now and reflect on where we have been. The time is now to solidify your intent, make the plans, initiate the change, take the steps forward, act on the vision.
Be determined. Make up your mind. Stick to the plan. No matter how slow you go at times, keep going. Put in the work. Have faith. Follow through. And know, that it is not all up to you, the world will support you.
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn energy creates the boundaries, structure and discipline needed now. Saturn teaches the lessons of success through hard-work, determination, responsibility, caution, and conservative efforts. Like a Great Grandfather guiding our way, Saturn teaches us life’s lesson through the cycles of time and ceaseless change, trial and error, patience, and perseverance.
Capricorn is the 10th sign in the Zodiac and rules the 10th House along with Saturn. In Astrology, the 10th House relates to one’s life path, true calling, or destiny. The 10th House influences are career, social status, personal authority, and ability to claim one’s power in the world. The 10th house reveals who we become over time and connects us to the Karma that develops in this lifetime and the next.
This New Moon invites us to dive deep within our own world, to surmount the inner obstacles we face and the baggage we have carried. With the power of Capricorn’s mystical fishtail, we can dive deep beneath the surface of our external reality and learn to swim with the emotions that may have kept us immobilized, breaking free of the old hurts, wounds and betrayals that may have haunted our dreams or sabotaged our successes in the past.
By the power of the Horned-Goat, this Capricorn New Moon energy encourages us to face our challenges head-on and head-strong, knowing that we belong both to the Mountain and the Sea, and the pathways we forge now are the way towards our greatest destiny. Trust. Believe. You will achieve.
Pay attention to the power struggles at play, notice where you are giving your own power away. What fears are ready to be surmounted? What insecurities have been holding you back? How have your inner depths influenced your ability to experience the highest heights? Are you ready to climb your way to the top? What, or who, has been holding you back? How can you take your power back?
Make your move.
This New Moon in Capricorn connects us to where we want to be six months from now. On June 24th, 2021 we have a Full Moon in Capricorn, linking us to this one. The choices you make today will forever influence the life you will be living tomorrow. Commit to your vision. Start the climb.
One step at a time! See you at the top.
