December’s New Moon is happening in the sign of Capricorn. This New Moon comes on December 23, 2022 at 5:17 a.m. EST. This is the second Capricorn new moon of the year; the first occurred on January 2nd, 2022.
New moons are a time when we plant seeds and manifest new beginnings. With it being in Capricorn, a cardinal sign that works hard, we can count on our career being in the spotlight.
This New Moon brings the perfect ending to the year, encouraging us to set our goals a week before the New Year begins. Capricorn is all about business and making progress, so affirming your New Year’s resolution 7 days ahead on a New Moon sends your manifestations to the Universe with an extra dose of magic.
As this year comes to a close, we tie up loose ends and make way for new beginnings. We may be slowing down, but we aren’t stopping. Capricorn is about discipline, dedication, and hard work.
Capricorn is a cardinal Earth sign. It’s an initiator ready to put in the work and accomplish goals. Capricorn brings in the Winter season where we basically hibernate and focus on our grind.
Capricorn rules our 10th house, sometimes called the Midheaven. This is the house of career, achievements, public life, and your influence.
It’s ruled by Saturn, the planet of wisdom, lessons, and karma. Saturn is the strict teacher who creates boundaries and structures so that we can shed patterns no longer working for us and transform into the butterfly we’re meant to become.
Change is a big theme during this time. With this new moon, you may receive new opportunities related to your career, your public life, or your finances. Now is a wonderful time to set your intentions around any sort of work related activity.
Some of you might be yearning for freedom from traditional roles or occupations, and this Capricorn New Moon is supporting you 100% of the way.
Numerology Significance of the New Moon in Capricorn
December 23, 2022 reduces down to 5, making this New Moon fall on a 5 day. Not only is this a 5 day, but the 23rd, 2 + 3, also equals 5, so we have double the 5 energy.
The 5 energy is about change. We are in a state of growth and evolution as we end one year and welcome in a new one. Like I said, change is a huge theme here.
We’re expanding and may be outgrowing who we are in this present moment. What we do, what we like, who we align with, what we’re eating. Everything is changing for the better. Your consciousness is looking for new ways to expand and express itself.
The season is also changing. You’re morphing into a completely different person than who you were at the beginning of this year.
In Astrology, the Sun rules the 5th house. Now is your time to shine brightly, be creative with work and your manifestations. Express yourself and embrace the freedom that change has to offer!
When the Moon is in Capricorn…
When the moon is in Capricorn we tend to suppress our emotions a bit. We get super focused on our ambitions and don’t always take the time to check in with how we feel.
It would be nice to let your guard down a bit and get in touch with your heart and soul. We can create emotional security through creating physical security.
As long as you feel like your needs are taken care of, you’re grounded and safe, so you’re more likely to open up and express your emotions.
3 Ways to Work With the New Moon in Capricorn
1. Set Your New Year’s Resolution
If you didn’t set your New Year’s Resolution on 11/11, this Capricorn New Moon is an excellent time to do so! It’s exactly 9 days before January 1st, and we know that 9 represents endings and new beginnings. Close out the year by starting your manifestations 9 days before a new cycle begins.
What do you wish to accomplish in 2023? It’s a Universal 7 year, so why not focus on yourself and your career? Take some time to decide what seeds you’d like to plant and begin strategizing how you’ll help them flourish.
Dream big! Capricorn is a powerhouse and can accumulate massive fortunes, so don’t limit yourself here. The only limitations you need to impose are the ones that will ensure that you stay committed to your dreams. Other than that, don’t let anything hold you back.
If there’s anything that you want to do, especially career wise, make a plan of how you’ll achieve it. Forget about what anyone has told you in the past. Focus on yourself and what you want to do.
2. Create a Vision Board
Vision boards help you to visualize your goals and what you want to accomplish. It allows the immaterial to be tangible without it having actually manifested into form. This is a great addition to setting your New Year’s resolutions on this day.
Center your visions around work related goals. We spend most of our lives working so whatever it is that we do, we want to be sure we are fulfilled doing it. If we aren’t, how much can we truly enjoy life?
If you don’t want to create a physical vision board, you can always create a digital one. Some people will use it as their computer wallpaper or screensaver on their phone, so that they see it often. This helps to keep you focused on your goals and inspires you whenever you lose faith.
Creating a physical vision board can be fun though. You can turn it into an art project and get really creative with it. Use paint, markers, photos from a magazine, newspaper, or anything else that will help you to bring your vision to life.
3. Dedicate extra time to a passion project
If you’re currently dissatisfied with your career, this Capricorn New Moon supports you in working on your passion project. When we follow our heart and align our soul with the work it wants to do in this lifetime, we attract freedom, joy, happiness, and abundance.
Instead of resisting, we are flowing with the Divine and moving in rhythm and harmony. Suddenly life becomes a lot easier.
Take this time to recommit to a passion project you’ve put aside, or finally take the plunge and begin working on the passion project that you’ve been thinking about but haven’t taken any practical steps to begin.
Capricorn is practical, organized, and productive. It’s a leader and initiator capable of getting things started. This is an excellent opportunity for you to begin working on a project that nourishes your soul.
