Take Your Time, Five Tips for Capricorn New Moon January 9, 2016

Are you ready to implement those new year’s resolutions? Design a powerful and practical action plan before the Capricorn New Moon on January 9, 2016. 

There is extra power and passion to materialize your plans for 2016 at the Capricorn New Moon, since it is aligned with potent Pluto.  Added energy is available to bring your inspired ideas down to Earth, supported by Uranus in impulsive Aries. However, Mercury Retrograde (January 5 - 25) invites you to slow down and think things through before you launch too far ahead.  Harness this energy as fuel to move forward, but be patient and take your time.


While planning is important, be open to creative inspiration and allow room for spontaneity with projects and plans in 2016.

As the Moon and Sun meet in each Zodiac sign each month, it is a marriage of energy and emotion. The 3 days on and near a New Moon is a powerful time to seed your intentions for the coming month. To align with this month's celestial themes, embrace Capricorn qualities of being responsible, reliable, and disciplined. 


Sun in Capricorn December 21 - January 20

Capricorn Sun shines light on these themes for the month:

  •     Make a practical plan and stay down to earth.  
  •     Make hay while the Sun shines. 
  •     Take care of business.
  •     Assert your authority and delegate tasks.
  •       Honor connection to ancestors and family history.
  •       Remember traditions from the past.
  •       Get organized.


The ruling planet for Capricorn is Saturn, the lord of time. Know your limits. Be effective and efficient. Since four planets are in Capricorn during this New Moon January 9th, this is a further reminder to plan ahead and take your time.


Take your Time: Five Tips for Capricorn New Moon January 9th, 2016


1. Reality check in the realm of love: Venus meets sober Saturn in Sagittarius.

What do you most value in the realm of life and love? Patience is implied as the love goddess Venus meets up with serious Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn supports slowing down, being responsible and persistently managing situations over time. Since Saturn is meeting with Venus at this New Moon, be extra clear with boundaries particularly in the area of relationship.


You may be reassessing your overly optimistic ideas or beliefs. Hold on to what you value the most, then let go of unnecessary thoughts which no longer serve you. Take your time to ask yourself, “What do I believe in and whom do I trust.”


2. Do the work, 4 planets in Capricorn are expanded by Jupiter in Virgo.

The earth signs are all about how to make a practical plan to make your life work for you. Sun, Moon, Mercury and Pluto are all in the earth sign of Capricorn, expanded by Jupiter in earthy Virgo.  Dot the i’s and cross your t’s. There is an added emphasis to be effective, efficient and get things done this week.


3. Be patient

In today’s fast paced world of instant messages and instant gratification, planet patterns this month suggest slowing down. Remember, when you work hard you are rewarded with results over time.


4. Mercury Retrograde remains January 5 - 25

Reconsider your thoughts before opening your mouth this month. Mercury Retrogrades are a time to reflect and repeat. I’ll say this again, slow down! If you feel the need to speak up, think before speaking.


5. Time to turn a corner, unpredictable Uranus shakes things up:

Be open to new ideas, but don’t go too far, too fast. Sun, Moon, Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn are all activated by inspiring Uranus in Aires.  Reflect on your traditional way of doing things, then shake it up.

Capricorn is a cardinal sign, meaning the first sign of the season.  The cardinal Zodiac signs initiate the equinox and solstice points: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  When the Sun enters Capricorn on December 21, this marks a solstice point, and the start of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
