There are 12 new moons in 2018, one in each month of the year. The first of them is on January 17th, when the Sun conjuncts the Moon in Capricorn.
The New Moon is the perfect time for new beginnings, because it happens when both the Sun and the Moon are aligned in the same zodiac sign, so that the concentrated energies of the sign help us to initiate projects, to make resolutions, to bring changes into our life.
The earth sign of Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, is associated with career, professional development and public image. It is also associated with long-term planning. People born under the sign of Capricorn are very determined, ambitious, but also responsible and self-controlled. Sometimes, they are too pessimistic, stubborn and self-centred.
So, the New Moon in Capricorn is about establishing long term goals for your career. It is also about improving your public image. Actually, each zodiac sign should respond to some questions, in order to understand how the January 17th New Moon can help and bring something new into his life:
Aries: Do you respect yourself? How can you earn the respect of others?
Taurus: What are your career goals? Are they challenging? Are they attainable?
Gemini: How can you diversify your income this year?
Cancer: Are you a good business partner? Do you have reliable partners?
Leo: Are you a big picture thinker or detail-oriented, in your career?
Virgo: How creative are you, at work? How can you innovate more?
Libra: Do you have and maintain a successful work-life balance?
Scorpio: Do you communicate effectively at work? How can you improve professional relationships?
Sagittarius: Do you earn enough money? How much money can you really make?
Capricorn: Are you appreciated at work? How can you get a promotion this year?
Aquarius: How do you manage your emotions at work? Can you focus on the positive?
Pisces: How can you introduce new ideas at work? How do you cultivate innovation?
The next New Moon will be on February, 15th – a New Moon in Aquarius (Sun conjunct Moon in Aquarius).
Until then, on January 31st, it will be a Full Moon in Leo (Sun in Aquarius opposite Moon in Aquarius).
