Intuitive Astrology: January New Moon 2016

january new moon astrology capricorn

The first New Moon of the year is going to offer all of us a glimpse into the future.

It is going to offer us a glimpse into what goals, dreams and ambitions we will all be working towards as 2016 unfolds. 

Falling on January 10, the first New Moon of the year will rise in the earthy and ambitious sign of Capricorn. 

This energy is going to allow all of us to tap into our own sense of ambition and determination in order to get clear over what it is that we truly desire and want to achieve for the year ahead. 

This New Moon is the perfect time to plant seeds for the future, particularly when it comes to making ambitious and career orientated goals. 

Mercury, the planet of communication will also be retrograde during this time, meaning that while events may not unfold on the New Moon itself, it is the perfect time to plan and visualise for the months ahead. 

In fact, the earthy energy of this New Moon will be a guiding force in how to begin and if you are ready, this energy will allow you to tune in and make a plan that is grounded, stable and secure for your journey ahead. 

On a deeper level, this New Moon will also be challenging us to go into the darker shadows of our soul in order to assess and transform the self-limiting beliefs that tend to hold us back. 

The darker shadow of our soul holds a lot of clues as to what our greatest fears are, and during this New Moon we will all be given an opportunity to release and let them go. 

In order for the little Capricorn mountain goat to trek up the mountain, it must be fearless and it must be willing to climb higher and higher in order to reach the view at the top. 

The good news about the mountain goat however, is that it is always taking calculated, disciplined and clever steps in order to reach its destination and if you are open to the energy, this New Moon will allow you to do just the same. 

Venus, the planet of love, beauty and profits will also be playing a role in this New Moon, and will be supercharging our need and desire to go after our greatest ambitions, dreams and wishes. 

She will also be challenging us to look at things with a different perspective and will be showing us where we need to change or redirect our attention and energy in order to achieve the most desirable outcome. 

Because Venus also rules over love, she may also be presenting this energy to us in our intimate relationships, as well as the relationship that we have with ourselves. 

In order to stand the long trek up the mountain, our relationships with others and our self needs to be supportive, loving and nurturing and Venus is going to ensure that we work on bringing this energy into our lives. 

While her work won’t be immediate, if you have been neglecting these areas of your life or if you have been looking to transform them in some way, you may receive a wake-up call or an opportunity to take action in March.

January’s New Moon is going to give all of us the opportunity to ground and root ourselves in what it is that we truly desire for the year ahead. 

Not only does it bring with it the energy of planning, discipline and fearlessness but it will also be helping all of us to find our path up the face of our own mountain. 

Whatever mountain you have been put on this earth to climb, whatever mountain is calling to you, is now ready and waiting for you to take that fearless first step for 2016.
