Sagittarius is where we seek out our belief system, Capricorn is where we consider its rules. Capricorn is the sign of backbone and integrity. It’s our ethics, our matured understanding of consequence. Effort is required and rewarded. This New Moon asks that we revisit our ultimate goals. What mountain are we climbing? And why are we climbing it?

Capricorn is an earth sign. It’s interested in tangible results and status symbols. This New Moon offers us an opportunity to reevaluate our relationship to these things and the role they play in our lives. Do they define us? How much weight do they hold? We all crave recognition to varying degrees. It’s part of being human. But if ambition is our sole motivator, we may be missing the point.

Gratification and satisfaction can be found as much in the journey as in the destination, perhaps even more so. Very often it’s the overcoming, the willingness to step out of our comfort zone (Capricorn governs fear) that emboldens us and gives our lives meaning and weight. It’s actually the quiet, inward applause that deepens our commitment to self-actualization and authenticity. 

Now is the time to revisit our motivations. What’s driving us? Who are we trying to impress and why? Can we commit to our own development knowing that, ultimately, it’s how we feel about ourselves that matters most? Can we recognize how far we’ve come?

"CAPRICORN new moon || Have you chosen your mountain? Capricorn is the goat, steadily climbing upwards towards its goal, lightening its load as it ascends. Wherever we have Cap in our chart is where we have to exert effort, where we experience limits and structure, where we must overcome. This New Moon, conjunct Pluto (deep transformation) and square Uranus (the lightening bolt) asks that we work with our fears as we journey onward. Venus is conjunct Saturn, which can deepen our feelings of insecurity and self-doubt. But take heart. This is all in service to mastery. Capricorn deals with integrity, karma. Are we in alignment (Capricorn rules the skeletal system, metaphorically and literally) as we take action steps in the direction of our dreams? Or are we stalled, petrified? We have everything we need inside of us. The key is to take the next step, whatever it is, and to put one foot in front of the other, while releasing the need to know, just exactly, how it will all pan out. And if it scares you, beautiful. How else are we supposed to grow and evolve?" Danielle Beinstein
