Friday 12/23, we have our final New Moon of 2022.
This New Moon takes place at 5:17 AM ET, at 1° of Capricorn.
A New Moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle, the movement of the moon through its different phases.
New Moons are a time of new beginnings. The beginning of a new cycle, a time to initiate plans and projects, get things moving, a fresh start.
Abundance surrounds this energy.
New Moons are auspicious times filled with promise and opportunity. Just like the Moon, we realign and begin anew, a new cycle is born.
The Sun aligns with the Moon in the sky when it’s a New Moon meaning, that they are in the same sign –Capricorn.
Capricorn is an Earth sign ruled by the planet of discipline, hard work and structure, Saturn. Capricorn is also under the modality of Cardinal meaning, they initiate, they get things going.
At the time of this New Moon, we have a stellium in the sign of Capricorn, meaning: Capricorn energy is enhanced. The energy of hard work, motivation and determination is highlighted. Think of this New Moon as setting ourselves up for success in 2023.
Jupiter, the social planet of growth, awareness and spiritual enlightenment is at 0° of Aries at this New Moon and is highly active.
New beginnings and opportunities surround us, but we must open our eyes and our hearts in order to grasp them. *Hint: look to the part of your birth chart that contains Aries, as this will give you an idea as to where you may experience growth and opportunity from now through May.
This is definitely a New Moon that you want to work with. Harness the powers of manifestation, possibility and potential.
Here is a quick and simple ritual you can do:
Set aside some quiet time for contemplation at some point between the 21st-25th of December, when this Moon’s energy is the strongest
Cleanse yourself and your space. Take a salt bath or a shower, or simply wash your hands and brush your teeth for fresh energy.
If you use sage, light some and cleanse. Put on some music if you wish, and get a piece of paper or your journal.
Feel free to use my guided chakra mediation here.
This ritual can be as elaborate or as simple as you wish, you set the tone…there is no right or wrong.
If you work with crystals, Citrine is a great one for abundance, creation and manifestation. Aventurine, Jade and Amazonite are great for good luck and prosperity. Rose Quartz and Malachite for honoring and healing of the heart…let’s not forget that the holidays tend to bring up a lot of emotions in all of us!
Honor any and all that comes up. Sit with it , reflect.
Write out what you will manifest over the next six month. Say it with conviction, as it is already yours.
Thank the powers that be, the divine, your loved ones in spirit…then put your words away somewhere safe, where you will remember to be reminded to revisit and revise them over the coming months.
Happy New Moon! Best wishes for a fabulous 2023 ✨.
