New Moon in Capricorn January 2, 2022

The first New Moon of 2022 comes January 2nd at 10:33 AM PST. The Sun and Moon are conjoined at 12 degrees Capricorn 20 minutes. Capricorn has led the charge through the last few years with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto taking their turns in that sign. The outcome is now we are more aware about the power structures, authorities in our lives, government systems and those who are our leaders. This stark reality has broken down our former perceptions and taught us to look deeper and take an individual stance on our reality.

New Moons are about setting an intention, a goal to work toward manifesting. This one is all about the material world and how we fit in it. We have the opportunity to “rethink” our vision for the future, as we have left behind old goals that fit into the past. Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth Sign. It leads us into the Winter with concrete inspirations on how to make the most out of our lives. This Earth Sign is responsible, ambitious and eager to build a foundation from which to create, fashion and model something new. Capricorns lead through perseverance and determination, as they take cautious steps up the ladder of success.


In finding out who we are, and what we’d like to become, we have possibly left people, places and old notions behind. They no longer fit into our world vision, and the parting of the ways can be difficult at best! But this is a time of new beginnings without bringing “baggage” into our future. That includes everything and everyone that doesn’t serve our destination. We now can focus undisturbed by the loose strings of yesteryear being tidied up and finished.


The Sun and Moon trine Uranus stationed at 10 degrees Taurus. Uranus inspires freedom, inventiveness, uniqueness, and in the sign of Taurus we look at love, relationships, money and values. It compliments the Sun and Moon’s energy and works with it to build a new foundation on higher values. Uranus is the activator that shakes us out of our doldrum and invites us to see a new possibility. In fact, you may see sudden and unexpected changes in life that require us to let go of what we have counted on, as somehow it was limiting our full potential. For instance, you may have taken your car to get fixed at the local shop for the last many years, you could trust them and they always did good work. They weren't the dealer, but you felt they were thorough. Maybe you even moved farther away, but you’d still drive the distance to go to them. Then after the last couple of years, they’ve had to close. OMG could be your response, or, realizing you will now have to find somewhere new to take your car, you can be excited to meet someone new, test your intuition to give you clear signals, and feel the power of decision making. It’s not about dependence anymore, it’s about independence.


As we move into 2022, we are healing through properly aligning with other like minded souls. Although life has forced us to isolate, it has also inspired us to spend our time researching, looking into what provokes us to respond. We are blessed with Mercury at 0 degrees Aquarius; it helps us be open to new technologies and breakthroughs in science, and the latest discoveries in any field. It gives us high expectations and a deep belief that mankind’s problems can be solved through the use of our creative intelligence and inventive mind. It gives us a strong humanitarian urge to help everyone.


Also at 0 degrees is Jupiter in Pisces. This placement of Jupiter lends us the ability to empathize and identify with others, making us unwilling to take advantage of or hurt anyone. We care about the underdog, and can feel their pain.

With all of these planetary and luminary energies escorting us to a new year, we can rest assured it’s ok to let go. It’s not a failure, it’s not your fault, it is just necessary to close one door before we open the next. Time for a give away; physically and spiritually. Lighten the load. Begin to feel your wings sprouting and take flight. Trust me, you won’t regret it;)
