New Moon in Capricorn - January 2024

Your guide to the moon cycle ahead.

New Moon in Sagittarius

A New Moon in Capricorn is associated with energy that is practical, disciplined, and focused on long-term goals. Capricorn is an earth sign ruled by Saturn, and during a New Moon in Capricorn, there is often an emphasis on ambition, responsibility, and the desire for achievement.

This lunar phase is an opportune time for setting realistic and achievable goals, especially those related to career, finances, and long-term plans. Capricorn energy is supportive of strategic thinking and planning for the future.

We will have a strong connection with our ambition and a strong work ethic. The New Moon in Capricorn can inspire a focus on professional growth, career advancement, and building a solid foundation for success.

You may notice you value discipline and structure right now. This is a time when people may feel more inclined to establish routines, set boundaries, and create a solid framework for their endeavours. The focus on discipline can help us overcome challenges and persevere in our


Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of responsibility. So this New Moon is all about creating those habits and rituals that can create a solid foundation for where we want to go in our own lives.

Remember to check your chart to see which area of life this might show up for you in.

Yoga Pose Focus for this New Moon

Capricorn rules the skeletal system and joints, especially the knees so we want our physical practice to connect with our bones and our joints.

One of my favourite poses for Capricorn Season is Mountain Pose. Capricorn is associated with structure, career and long term goals. In Mountain Pose we create that energy of rooting ourselves into where we are and feeling stable enough to gaze into the future and see our potential.

Rituals for the New Moon

For each New Moon I build an altar to honour the new beginning, a space where I can sit and be with my goals and dreams for the month ahead and get clarity on my intentions moving forward.

I also really love to use scent in all my rituals and this month I'll be using the deep and alluring New Moon Wax Melts on my altar as I relax into my space.

Capricorn is all about creating solid routines and rituals so you may like to add something to your altar that represents what that looks like for you.

Lastly, Capricorn is an Earth sign and Earth needs to move a little slower, this might be a month where you take some time to really get clear on exactly what it is you want to bring in this year.

Crystal for the New Moon in Capricorn

I've chosen Garnet for this New Moon for meditation and connecting with higher states of consciousness, making it a supportive crystal for those on a spiritual journey.

Garnet is a stone of strength and commitment, making it particularly resonant with Capricorn's disciplined and ambitious nature. It is believed to boost self-confidence and enhance motivation.

Oracle Card Message for this New Moon

New Moon in Aquarius

New Moon in Libra Oracle Card

Card Description - Aquarius is all about progress and modernity, so this is the time to move forward. The New Moon in Aquarius card means 'No looking back!' Change is on its way and could come quickly. Whether you get the change you want depends both on whether you believe you can have it and how much you're relying on others to bring it to you. This card comes with the suggestion that you many need to do things independently, on your own. But be loving - not too pragmatic! Time may be of the essence when this card comes up - Aquarius energy has a electric feel to it. Certainly there is a sense that you need to let go of the past and move towards your future as soon as possible.

I hope that you have a wonderful and magical Capricorn New Moon!

Until the Full Moon
