What does it all mean?

  • Capricorn is business, duty and discipline. She is ruled by Saturn, the planet of restrictions. 
  • We may be more in tune with our work/career or vocational direction.
  • Change may be more challenging to deal with, and we may be resistant towards it… 
  • Being disciplined towards our “duties/chores” may be easier to achieve. 
  • Dealings with the elderly may be in focus. 
  • Dealings with “authority” types, such as teachers, principles, supervisor’s may be in focus. Being respectful of such positions may help to alleviate tension. 
  • This could be a good time to get mundane business tasks out-of-the-way
  • If you have been waiting to get a “chaotic” situation under control, now may be a good time to do it. 
  • Rules and regulations may be in focus, and depending on how you deal with these, it could be a favorable time or a stressful one. 
  • Good time to watch, listen and learn
  • We may find we are looking at our “worth” now, including the salary we get paid. 
  • We are happy to work for our “keep”, knowing we are doing a good job. 
  • In the 3rd house, some folks may find they are spending more time with siblings …. day to day activities should go smoothly… although some folks may find they are busier then usual.
  • In the 4th house we may be focused on our domestic duties, some of us could feel frustrated if things aren’t as organized as they would like when it comes to the home. Take some time out this weekend to be with family and folks who feel like family… and if that’s not possible  
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Gemini or Cancer placing in their charts. 
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Saturn in Capricorn
  • Moon in the 3rd house
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn

The New Moon in Capricorn will intensify the effects of the moon in Capricorn. It is a fabulous time to begin anew… to put new ideas out into the universe and start new projects and relationships…. However, the moon still sits in the 4th quarter until December 30th, (it is better to start new things when the moon is in the 1st quarter)…. and Mercury is retrograde once more…. While it is still possible to begin things now, take note that all may not turn out the way you had planned… be flexible with your ideas and plans as much as possible and expect missed appointments and perhaps some missed opportunities too… although, sometimes when Mercury is retrograde it gives us a chance to redo, and can sometimes bring forward “lost” opportunities from the last Mercury retrograde… stay open to anything that may come along during this new moon…

  • Mercury, is retrograde at the moment… indicting a more challenging or frustrating time regarding getting plans sorted and put into action… take extra care about documentation, read it over carefully …
  •  Mercury is the planet of communication and technology, he is quick on the uptake and absolutely hates being bored or stagnant… he rules Gemini and Virgo: Be prepared for lost communications, misunderstandings and confused directions when traveling. It’s a great time to review your plans and put ideas for the future down on paper. Check and double-check your work before submitting it… Transportation issues may be in the news, and some folks may have car trouble. 

Folks with the following chart influences may feel the retrograde energy more than the rest of us: 

  • Mercury in Gemini or Virgo:
  • The Sun or Moon in Gemini or Virgo:

  • In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-off-Course: 

  • There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Off-Course Moon:

  • These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.
  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

  • There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. 
  • Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
