CAPRICORN NEW MOON 2022
Happy New Moon. Happy New Year.
The first new Moon of the year is at 12 Capricorn on 2 January 2022 1:33 PM EST.
Capricorn is a great lead in to every new year as it rules time.
New Year energy signals a reset. It can signal a look at things we feel it’s time to do – or at least to consider.
Saturn-ruled Capricorn also rules the structure of things and events – our day, our menu, the layout of our home. The New Year energy lends itself to the consideration of the structure of our hours and days. It then may call us to focus on how we might build/rebuild certain areas of our life. At this New Moon Mercury and Saturn, are in Aquarius making way for some real eureka moments.
Jupiter, the optimistic expander, is at powerful 0 degrees of Pisces- asking us to attend to the dreams of our minds, our hearts, and our Spirits.
If you know what house Capricorn inhabits in your chart, that can add more insight to what areas come up for consideration every year around this time.
Venus is retrograde in Capricorn until January 29th. Venus is all about how we relate, care, value and love. Capricorn, among other things, is all about structure, time and rules. Retrograde cycles invites us to revisit, review, reflect, reconsider, reevaluate, etc, etc.
The New Year is a a time for intention setting. It is a time for releasing of the old and outmoded and allowing breathing space to invite the new.
It seems that the first weeks of the 2022 can be a time to look at our relationships of all kinds. We don’t have to go crazy jettisoning everything and going with the whole “New Year, New Me” thing. How about “New Year, New Toothbrush…” It’s achievable, and it is good self care. It can be rewarding to find places where we can do micro adjustments by keeping changes gentle and doable.
Back to our New Moon Capricorn, Venus retrograde. The first relationship is the relationship with the self. We can focus on how we value ourselves. We can think about what has been working in the last couple of years since our daily lives and routines have probably shifted quite a bit since 2020.
Which of the new habits whether they be by circumstance or by choice — have been beneficial and even enjoyable?
I know many people have found that having a built-in excuse to say no to social invitations has been a godsend.
What else makes us feel good, healthy, relaxed, motivated, inspired?
How about a New Year wish list? It’s a bit more fun and open-ended than a resolution.
What do you want to do, to try, to attract in 2022?
Pondering and writing these things down while dreaming end envisioning the coming days weeks and months can all be fun at this time.
Pulling some cards or doing a meditation to invite seen and unseen energetic helpers for the year can also be affirming at this time. Keep an eye out for which animals and plants catch your eye and look up their divine meaning on the Internet.
See if their companionship is welcome. A retrograde Venus cycle is a great time to develop the relationship with the higher self and with guardians, angels, guides and teachers.
Do what you like if you aren’t sure about what you love. It isn’t always recommended to fret about “Purpose” or “Meaning.”
How about going toward things, activities, and people that make us feel good.
How about we join with the thoughts and experiences in life that give us a lift, that bring interesting new energy, that smell, and feel and taste a bit different, a little bit inviting, exciting, inspiring and, hey, even hopeful?!?
Surely the last two years have affected our relationships of all kinds. We have seen what is valued, valuable. We have experienced shifts and changes.
It is okay to let some routines, habits, things, and relationships go with live and gratitude.
During a Venus retrograde cycle we feel the strength of our inner authority emboldening us to realign with who we are now, what we want now and how we want to live now. Life is about evolution, after all. We are in especially dynamic times just now.
Capricorn rules Time and we can align ourselves with our own inner clock to know when to ponder, when to rest, when to initiate, when to complete, when to start anew. 💗
I wish you all much happiness, good health and a sense of alignment with your own timing in 2022.
Much love, Lydia
