The first full lunar cycle of the new year begins on January 12th (or just after midnight on January 13th, if you’re in Eastern Time) with the January 2021 New Moon and it’s here to help us achieve our New Year’s goals with a mystical flair.
If you have personal intentions that could use a little lunar pick-me-up, you’ll want to know how the January 2021 New Moon will affect you, based on your zodiac sign. The first New Moon of 2021 takes place in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn, which inspires us to focus on our goals and start planning for the year ahead.
This lunation is perfect for setting intentions around work, money matters, and otherwise aligning yourself with the overall mood of Capricorn season which is all about determination and laying a solid foundation for our future. New Moons are a great time for fresh starts, so it’s a good time to kick off new projects as well.
Because Pluto is partnering with this New Moon, we’ll feel more motivated to get what we want so get ready to set some major intentions for the New Moon. We can feel more quietly competitive than usual and we will naturally feel more strategic when it comes to charting the best course of action for our future.
Resist the urge to be shady to get to the top and instead embrace the Capricorn achievement style: stable, disciplined, and well thought out. This lunation offers a boost for everyone’s 2021 goals, but each of us will experience energy a little differently.
