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. 
  • Moon in the 4th house: Taking care of our home and our loved ones could be on the top of our agenda’s… If you have been waiting for a good time to “pretty up” your home, these next couple of days may be a good time to do it.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong  Cancer placing in their charts. 
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Saturn in Capricorn
  • Moon in the 3rd house
  • Moon in Gemini
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn
  • ***January 16th is the date of the New Moon. The New Moon is traditionally thought of as the best time to begin a new project, start a new job, start a business, a new class or any new venture. With the moon in Capricorn it is possible that this new moon will be a positive time for career, job or vocation situations. All of the moon in Capricorn traits will be stronger under the new moon. This is also a good time to ask the Universe to assist us with bringing in something new into our lives… write it all down on a piece of paper, keeping good intentions at all times, read it aloud and then lite the paper with a match and let the smoke drift out into the universe, taking all positive requests with it… (Play it safe, make sure you have a fire-proof container for the ashes to drop into…) 🙂

  • 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.
