New Moon in Capricorn

This year's Christmas Eve marks another potent time to make your wishes and to sow seeds in your garden of desire.  The New Moon in Capricorn at 2 degrees 34 minutes asks us to be our own authority and choose the path that YOU want to be on.  With Uranus in Aries in a tight aspect (square) to this New Moon, it is easy to give in to external pressure and to blindly follow the advice from those around you, whom may think they have your best interest at heart, but at the end of the day, you are your own boss.  By all means, listen to their words of wisdom, but whether you execute them is at your discretion.  Luckily, this New Moon is also in a relatively close aspect to Jupiter (trine), bringing opportunities and an atmosphere of harmony and good will to the area of life that Jupiter falls in your own chart.

Feeling confident with what you have to offer in your career, you are toying with the idea of adding another dimension to your professional life.  As much as you want to leave a blazing trail and be the envy of your colleagues, the extra workload and responsibilities would mean less time to enjoy life.

This New Moon ushers in a wave of philosophical energy, encouraging you to explore the big wide world through travelling or expanding your mind in a higher education setting.  Regardless of the step you take to review what life means to you, you are imbued with a positive outlook on life.

The energy of this New Moon is highlighting issues surrounding your relationship with your intimate partner, whether it be the assets you share together or taking the relationship onto a higher level.  This may elicit the fear of losing your freedom and individuality.  However, consider taking the time-out to listen to that inner voice of yours in order to reach a decision.

Relationships, both romantic and business, are under the spotlight during this New Moon, whether it be the progression onto the next level or a total elimination.  You are likely to have reached a point where tolerance is not an option.  Like-minded friends could provide you with tactful and sensitive ways to handle the situation and deal with the people involved.

This is a time to review your current state of employment and how you are serving in this world.  Opportunities present themselves in your career, from extending your professional network to captivating a larger clientele.  Spiritual teachers or gurus could offer you words of advice, but you are the director of your life in the end.

Some of your deep-seated fears may surface from the depths of your psyche, hindering the true expression of yourself.  However, if you take a step back and see the bigger picture of life, you may find these 'scary monsters under the bed' are not so terrifying at all.

Home life is under scrutiny during this New Moon.  Although family members may be testing your patience, you are feeling rather forgiving and can tap into your creative pool to find excuses for their negative behaviours.

This New Moon reminds you that it's time to update your knowledge bank and acquire new skills to remain competitive in the job market.  You may also like to consider communicating your needs openly at work, as your boss and colleagues are not mind-readers.  Offload your worries to a significant other, after all, a problem shared is a problem halved.

As much as you crave freedom and spontaneity, there comes a time when life's practicalities have to be taken care of.  This New Moon highlights the need for financial stability, even at the expense of curbing your creative nature.  A feeling of contentment surrounds the possibility of expansions at work, whether it be the physical location or your workload; it's all taken in good spirits.

'Working hard' is your life mantra but the New Moon is opening your eyes to explore the possibility of 'playing hard'.  This is also the perfect time to redress your work-life balance - Have you been neglecting your family because of your workaholic tendencies?

Always thinking about other people, Aquarians are asked by the New Moon to take a break and have some 'me' time.  Ask your mind to shut up for a moment.  Go deep within and get in touch with your inner self.  A renewed sense of self-understanding can bring clarity to your next step in life.

Friendships are under the spotlight during this New Moon.  Perhaps you feel the need to widen your circle of friends or to detach from friends who are stifling your creative soul.  This could also be a time to acquire new skills and be receptive to new ideas.
