New Moon in Capricorn

Welcoming the first new moon of 2024

Tonight the New Moon in Capricorn is gracing the night sky. New moons are a potent time for manifesting intentions and creating future plans. So, what does the New Moon in Capricorn mean and how can we ride its energy for a positive and productive start to the new year?

Capricorn, the diligent and ambitious earth sign, is all about structure, and laying down the groundwork for our dreams. When the moon cosies up to Capricorn, it is like the universe handing us a blank canvas for us to sketch out our grandest plans. 

This is the perfect time to set intentions and goals, especially those that align with our long-term aspirations.  A time for building, planning, and setting the stage for your ambitions. Channel Capricorn's discipline, and let it guide you as you carve your path to success. Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) and fellow cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, and Libra), you're in for a cosmic boost!


Here's a simple ritual to make the most of tonight's lunar event: 

Find a quiet space, light some earthy incense like sandalwood or patchouli, and bring in some crystals like black tourmaline for grounding, garnet for ambition, and clear quartz to amplify your intentions. 
Take a deep breath and write down your intentions for the new year ahead whether it's professional aspirations, personal growth, or cultivating better relationships, let the universe know what you're aiming for.

Here are some journal prompts to get you started: 

  1. What specific intentions do I want to set during this New Moon in Capricorn?
  2. How will achieving these intentions positively impact my life? 
  3. What themes in my life do I need to focus on for this year?
  4. In what areas of my life am I open to growth and expansion?
So, let's embrace the energy of the New Moon in Capricorn, set our intentions, and build the foundations for the future we desire. May your dreams be as vast as the night sky!
