It’s officially a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13, 2021 at 12:01 am ET.
The New Moon arrives when the Moon is in conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. In the coming days, as the Moon grows we will see the crescent Moon in the sky after sunset.
The New Moon in Capricorn gives us the opportunity to become more aware and driven to succeed in accomplishing our personal goals, and can be the beginning of a new way forward.
This New Moon is also in conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn so we know that it signifies a time of new changes and potentially major transformations in our lives. Some people find New Moons to be emotional, others find Full Moons notably more emotional. With the New Moon conjunct powerfully potent Pluto this can certainly be a highly emotional time for many.
Of course, Capricorn is business, finance and politically oriented so we can expect this time to bring us many changes in this regard, especially in terms of the structure and order of society.
As Pluto also has destructive qualities, we could see some of the old ways released as new changes take place. Pluto symbolizes death and rebirth. Pluto is also the higher octave of Mars and Mars is in Taurus now. More about Pluto below, and you can also read more on the power of Pluto.
With everything else that is going on this week – see the New Weekly Astrology updates here – we can expect this time is quite revolutionary.
Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn, and Saturn is now in Aquarius for the next couple of years.
We are currently in a tense period in terms of the power structure of our society, especially indicated by financial, corporate and political power. With Saturn in Aquarius along with Jupiter in Aquarius, and Mercury in Aquarius now it is the Big Tech, news media, social media and social issues that are in focus, all relative to money, power and political ideologies. We could hear talk of electric power associated with Aquarius around this period, as well as nuclear power with Uranus and Pluto in focus.
Mars in Taurus is also in challenging aspect to Saturn in Aquarius on January 13, 2021 at 6:01 am ET. Tensions are high, especially regarding restrictions of information and ideas. A frustrating, irritated and agitated energy is possible.
The meeting of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius gives further information to consider during this period as well.
With the New Moon in Capricorn close to Pluto in Capricorn this brings attention to power, and people and authority figures in powerful positions that transform our society and affect our lives by their decisions and what they do. We could certainly see new developments this week in the political realm that brings many changes and we could see new perspective from or about famous people. As Pluto is highly destructive with major power we could also see examples of people and organizations as being drunk with power during this period. We could see a significant purge and a dramatic change.
Venus is also in Capricorn now, which can indicate attention on a prominent career oriented or political female figure at this time.
Generally, the Moon is not at her most optimal in Capricorn because The Moon likes things to be comfortable and flowing well, while Capricorn is about work, time and putting in a lot of effort to accomplish. Chasing after the goals can be time consuming and exhausting, while the Moon wants to relax, dream and imagine.
Taking some time to consider how you want to find balance between your personal life and your career life and what the future holds is recommended now.
Capricorn is a sign of practicality, therefore what you do now is of great importance.
New Moons in Capricorn indicate we are in a growth phase, where what we focus on increases and develops as we work on our goals.
