New Moon [01 Capricorn 33]
December 23, 2022 (10:17 GMT)
New Moon alert! It’s that time of the month when a new lunar cycle begins with the New Moon. This New Moon comes at an ideal time to look ahead and set your intentions for 2023.
During the New Moon, the Sun and Moon sit side by side in the zodiac, the perfect team; the King (Sun) and Queen (Moon) of the sky, the Sun ruling the day and the Moon ruling the night.
New Moon Energy
Set your intentions for the year ahead. The best time to do this is after the New Moon. At the exact moment of the New Moon, everything is dark.
Meditate during the New Moon, then set your intentions and plan ahead. You can do this a day or two after the New Moon. You might choose to write down some wishes or state your dreams out loud on Christmas Eve, December 24th.
Make a wish on the crescent moon. This will appear in the night sky over the Christmas weekend. When you first catch a glimpse of the Moon, make your wish.
Capricorn’s zodiac symbol is the mountain goat. Capricorn is the star sign at the peak of the horoscope with its eye on the future. This is earth sign energy and the Capricorn New Moon is perfect for looking ahead, drawing up a business plan or long-term goals.
There is a chance to make things happen and fast on this New Moon. This is because the Sun & Moon both make a square aspect to big planet Jupiter in speedy Aries. You could leap into action and make a bold statement or be positive about your next steps. Crack on before retrograde energy intensifies next week.
