The New Moon in resilient Capricorn arrives on December 23 at 5:17 am ET with a planet full of supporting energies in the same sign; Mercury, Venus, and Pluto encourage us to end the year with focus and begin anew grounded in our highest goals and purpose.
As we close out the year, we have the strength to deepen our patience and our will as we move with wisdom toward 2023.
We are in full-on Winter as the Winter Solstice on December 21st, the longest night of the year, initiated us going inwards into the Northern hemisphere. Mercury, symbolizing our mental processes, Venus, our values and love, and Pluto, the planet of collective transformation, are all in Capricorn. They are reminding us to be steady in our ideals while allowing transformation to shape our goals in a form that will serve in an even greater way!
It’s important to be vigilant in our communications at this time as Mercury, ruling technology and communication, goes into its final retrograde on December 28, 2022, until January 18. Also, Mars, the planet of action, is in Gemini (the messenger), and is retrograde as well. Though we may want to speak out the truth during family holiday gatherings, we may need to notice our triggers and communicate wisely at a later time. Many will be running into safe spaces to unburden themselves with trust-worthy friends before dealing with their holiday gatherings.
Jupiter, the planet of expansion, left Pisces and re-entered Aries (warrior) on the 20th, allowing us to take the inspiration and creativity we may have received and begin to put it into action! While the end of the year slowdown may frustrate you, create your lists, send your emails, and prepare yourself to leap forward with your plans.
Every month, the moon moves through different phases that reflect and inspire energies available to each and every one of us to potentialize our personal and collective evolution.
The beauty of New Moons
New Moons are a time of releasing the old and seeding the new.
The sky is dark with vast potential and our intentions are apt to receive the energy they need to take root and grow! New Moons can be leveraged as reset points for certain storylines or phases in your life’s journey. Monthly, we get an opportunity to clear the space and set new intentions, and even course-correct on long-term projects or relationships.
The gravitas of these planetary helpers allows us to review this year, and nurture our patience even if our nerves are a bit frayed from the year’s political battles, inflation, and both national and international human rights atrocities. It has not been an easy year and self-compassion and meditation practice may be the salve we need during these hectic holidays.
Remember, to be kind to yourself, honor your boundaries, and take time for yourself. Whatever the holidays look like for you, make sure it supports your mental health and well-being.
