Capricorn 26˚ 55′





Capricorn is the sign of the sea-goat. Sure-footed and sure-finned; what terrain can it not handle? The sea goat has power. The house that contains Capricorn is where you can climb the highest mountain and swim the deepest sea, no matter the odds. You have only to set your sights. Capricorn is serious, driven and full of integrity and your intention this month should be as well.

Normally, Capricorn is a bit of a hermit, but Venus is aligned with this New Moon asking you to value cooperation in your endeavors. How can you work with others to accomplish your goals? The clue to the type of people that will be is in the house where this New Moon falls. For example, 12th House – working with spirit, 4th House – working with family members/housemates, 7th House – close relationships, etc.

When setting your intention (directly AFTER the New Moon) you will want to look first to the house where Capricorn 27˚ falls. This post can help you figure that out. Make sure this intention is congruent with who you are and how you use Capricorn energy in this area (the house) of your life.

Capricorn is an earth sign. Use something to represent that element when you set your intention like crystals, salt, dirt, plants or trees. Vetiver or Cedarwood essential oil is perfect for this New Moon. Green or brown are good earthy colors. Green Tourmaline is the stone for this degree of Capricorn, but you could also use any grounding-type stone like smokey quartz, hemetite, petrified wood, etc.

And for a little inspiration, some music from The Sound of Music.
