Ready, set, goals! The new moon in Capricorn comes January 9th and puts our eyes on the proverbial prize. It’s time to think big… and then even bigger. Capricorn is the sign of outsized ambition — the zodiac’s motivator who gets the job done right.
New moons are the time to plant seeds to be harvested under the light of the corresponding full moon six months later: in this case, July 19, 2016.
Heads up: We'll also have to practice patience. This new moon happens to fall right after Jupiter goes retrograde in Virgo, a symbiotic fellow earth sign (January 7-May 9), and Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn (January 8-25).
"Retrograde" means a planet appears to go backward, and everything under that planet's jurisdiction can get delayed, scrambled or mired in red tape. There may be a few do-overs required this time around, especially since both Mercury and Jupiter govern communication.
We may KNOW what we want, but it could take a couple of extra weeks (or months) to properly execute those missions. Even as we formulate grand plans, we'll need to tweak them a few times to make sure our #goals are established on terra firma.
Don't get frustrated if your big ventures don't immediately launch into the stratosphere. Instead of pacing anxiously or obsessing, use the extra time to tighten up your game, and even to explore other avenues or options.
Here are few tips for tapping into this future-focused new moon.
