New Moon in Capricorn, December 2022
The New Moon in Capricorn is my favourite time to look back at the year that is wrapping up, review progress and accomplishments, and to set my intentions for the coming year. After all, Capricorn energy boosts our ability to achieve our goals.
Here is a quick and hopefully thought-provoking question for you: What milestones were reached this year? What goals were achieved? And, where will you be and what will you be doing this time next year?
Capricorn energy is perfect for getting clear on how you define success. For each of us, it might look different. Stay aligned with yours. It may be an external manifestation of success, but it can also be internal: being happy with your life, for example.
In my MoonManifest course, I teach a powerful technique that helps you align with YOUR vision of a happy, successful life that is right for YOU. The key thing is, get crystal clear on your goals for the upcoming year.
Some years, the New Moon in Capricorn falls close to the start of the year, and some years - like 2022 - it comes in the middle of the Christmas season, so your mind might not be on your 2023 goals just yet!
But, this New Moon has a very distinct and take-charge energy signature: it`s at 1° Capricorn, in a tight square with Jupiter at 0° Aries. These are important, ambitious degrees in astrology.
So you might want to set your New Year`s resolutions early this year, on this New Moon. Or, wait until the next New Moon (Jan. 21 12:52 a.m. PST) - Mars and Mercury will both be out of retrograde by then. Yes....Mercury will be turning retrograde on December 29...
Capricorn is traditionally associated with professional accomplishments (among other things). For anyone career-minded, this is THE New Moon of the year to set your intentions. Capricorn also rules older age, so if you’re worried about your financial stability in retirement, mark this one in your calendar as well.
You're not limited to these topics. Setting intentions for anything you want to attract into your life is fair game. But, the intentions for the matters ruled by Capricorn get an extra boost on this New Moon.
If you're new to working with New Moon energies, you may be interested in my post "Setting Intentions on a New Moon: Why and How".
- Set your intentions soon after the new Moon, within 8 hours if you can. Set aside about 30 minutes for this.
- If you like working with crystals, you can use them to amplify your New Moon ritual (optional). If you are focusing on professional success, work with citrine and garnet. To strengthen your resolve to help you get where you want, use tiger eye.
- Focus on your intentions. Truly FEEL them. How will it feel when you are in that big office, calling the shots and steering the ship? When you have a great, mutually supportive relationship with your boss? When you watch your nest egg grow, ensuring financial security in retirement? Direct that energy of security and accomplishment into your intentions.
- Write down your intentions and keep them. And, write down one (or more) action steps that YOU are going to take to help you get there. And then, commit to following through while the Moon is waxing over the next couple of weeks. Do your part, and leave the rest to the Universe
Sample intentions might include:
“I want to attract a position of increased responsibility at work.”
“I want to be able to achieve my goal of _____ through using my skills and determination to my best advantage.”
“I want right opportunities to come into my life at the right time, leading to a promotion at work.”
“I want to easily find myself taking actions that enhance my professional reputation.”
“I want to easily find ways to build a mutually <beneficial, supportive,…> relationship with my boss.”
“I want to easily be able to make decisions that will lead to financial security during retirement.”
“I want to easily find myself handling money in a way that allows me to retire at the age of ____”.
To Go Deeper:
We all have the ability to draw what we desire to us, the ability to manifest the future we want. We don't always use it, because we don't know how!
We spend years in school, learning science and literature and many other subjects. Then we spend years developing skills we need for our career.
And yet, the skill to manifest the future we want? For most of us, we didn't learn it growing up - but we can certainly learn it as adults.

✨ I wanted to let you know (I'm working on manifesting abundance of money) that I received two unexpected checks in the mail today, and an unexpected deposit into my bank account. Even though they aren't going to sustain my family in the long-term, there were a surprise, much appreciated, and a nice beginning!
