January’s New Moon in Capricorn

“Change is a fundamental element of consciousness. It is what calls our attention, awakens it, stimulates our questions. Without change our minds become dull and unaware.” Anodea Judith

“Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo” is a Quenya  (Elvish) greeting  used by Frodo in the first meeting with Gildor Inglorion. It translates as “A star shines on the hour of our meeting.” Eric Francis quoting J.R.R. Tolkien

There’s just nothing like good timing. This is why people often consult an astrologer to set an important date – for starting a business, for example, or  buying a house or getting married.  It’s why, when people consult an astrologer about the potential of a  new romantic relationship, the astrologer will often ask for the date and time of the first meeting. The timing of this is believed to hold significant information about the nature of the  relationship itself.

New Moons come and go – some more powerful than others. January’s New Moon in Capricorn ushers in a time that bodes well for transformation. The Moon waxes new January 2, 2022 at 1:35 PM EST.  This Sunday is an especially favorable time for setting intentions or making resolutions.

The Sun and Moon will be at 12 degrees of Capricorn, joining  Juno (the asteroid of commitment ), Venus and Pluto in this pragmatic, goal driven sign.  If you’re willing to commit to the work involved, a lot of progress can be made going forward with your aspirations.

The Sun and Moon will also be making a favorable alignment with Uranus – the planet of surprises. This indicates good timing- an important consideration astrologically with new endeavors.

Jupiter will be newly in Pisces and squaring the Nodes. This indicates an important turning point.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time  is, “A student of nature lecturing, revealing little-known aspects of life.”

Sabian symbol from Lynda Hill
