It’s a full Moon in Earth sign Capricorn today. Re-visit intentions if you set them when the moon was new in Capricorn, 6 months ago. Where are you at with them at this stage of your journey? If not, send them out now to be revealed under the bright light of this full Moon- at the 1/2 way point, & peak of its cycle.
Capricorn is a sign of career, ambition, hard work and working toward the accomplishment of long-term goals. Use this energy to set your goals and make a practical plan on how to get there. Reverse engineer to a point that you can get some traction on now.
The Moon governs our emotional life, what makes us feel safe, nurtured and a sense of belonging/family & home.
The Moon is in a challenging aspect (square) to wounded healer Chiron in sensitive Pisces. What do you need to heal in order to have those needs met? This includes needs for your own ambition and career, as these things can give us a great sense of personal accomplishment as well as security. Being in an Earth sign, that includes material security, as well as the credit we have for our reputation. position and skills.
Saturn rules Capricorn, and its currently merged (conjunct) with the Moon. Saturn can limit and isolate as well as focus. Today could feel a little lonely or like hard work unless you embrace the opportunity it provides for focus. Uranus is in a favorable aspect (trine) suggesting we lean into change and try something new. Saturn is retrograde, (as is Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune). Don’t be surprised if you need to go back and do a fresh take on a few things. You may need to re-visit some old habits in order to clear them, now’s the time. While Saturn is usually more like hard work than fun, it does reward any work done, so do the emotional work and it will be worth it. What kind of tangible action can you invest and what tangible results will you accomplish?
Potential is all around you, yet if it’s not congruent with your beliefs you won’t even see it. Opening up your mind and setting intentions helps get your unconscious on board to navigate a new pathway. Doing the emotional work, and opening up your beliefs about what you deserve & can achieve is key to this process. Do the work, as Byron Katie says, and you’ll reap the benefits.
Happy Full Moon!

On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative and quiet mood.
Write them down, then burn them as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative and quiet mood. This makes rich soil for contracting your inner/higher self, planning and setting foundations for your path.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions or affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in CAPRICORN. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other at their extreme ends of mutual polarity.
Focus on areas and approaches that CAPRICORN rules, such as:
- Status Anxiety
- Personal Authority
- Personal authenticity
- Reaching Goals
- Hard work
- Self Mastery
- ‘I easily assume authority’
- ‘I assume responsibility for my own choices and their outcome.’
- ‘I easily find myself consciously using time to my best advantage.’
- ‘I easily take the steps that lead to career success’.
- ‘I easily handle money and assets in a way that supports my future.’
- ‘I easily recognize which goals are in both my best personal interest and for those I’m responsible for’.
- ‘I easily and successfully reach my goals.’
- ‘I easily find myself welcoming and enjoying the hard work that leads to success.’
- ‘I easily surpass the expectations and achievements of my family/tribe.’
- ‘I easily find the discipline to master the skills that lead to successfully achieving my goals.’
This New Moon is traveling with the Retrograde Mercury so plan and then plan again, knowing there could be some adjustments still to make..think course correction, outside the box, and that new information is most likely going to come to light within the next few weeks if not six months.
The Retrograde Mercury suggests communication needs some work, study or even incorporating some short trips for career, business or to improve your social standing/status.
Check out this recent post on the current Mercury Retrograde for further details and consider how you can work that into your personal New Moon Intentions.

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals….”
– Michelle Obama (Capricorn).
Your natal chart reveals the area of your life this New Moon falls, (Eg career, relationships, money mastery etc) and where these intentions are best placed.
For example, if the New Moon falls in your 11th house of social networks, peers and groups then you already like to have some sort of leadership or authority in that area.
How can you further your status as an ‘expert’ among peers? Leading workshops in your field is a great example, as well as organizing and holding events generally. Can you write an e-book that shows off your specialization and positions you as the go-to person among peers? Or perhaps join a public speaking program/group or speak at events?
For example, if I as an astrologer had this Moon in my 11th house(of peers and groups) I’d be choosing a key specialization in Astrology I wanted to be known for and signing up to speak at Astrology conferences. That way I’d be speaking to peers rather than the general public. The aim would be to build my name and business as ‘an Astrologer for astrologers’ rather than the general public. As it turns out I don’t have to book flights to the next International Astro conf as the New Moon is in my 8th house of sex, death, occult and other peoples resources..sounds good!
If you need further certification, learning or information for any endeavor, then plan for that. I recommend you hold off signing up for another 2 weeks minimum. Use the time to work on your master plan.

The Full Moon brings to the surface our instinctual, emotional truth...like sea life drawn to the surface of the water by lunar light.
The Full Moon sees the fruition of seeds planted 6 months prior on the Capricorn New Moon. What were you dreaming of, or planning for then? What is your harvest looking like now?
For your revision read the new Moon in Capricorn post – link below
The Area of your birth chart that this Sun/Moon Axis falls in is the area of your life affected…Look at which ‘houses’ of your chart have Cancer and Capricorn on the cusp. (Make your free birth chart at astro.com/birthchart)
The polarity with the opposite sign, in this case, security and family oriented Cancer comes into play. We need to balance our need for external references of success, authority, and power, with internal cues. True rewards and accomplishments are found at a center point, encompassing the entire spectrum so balance the polarity and you will strike your personal harmony..ie, have your needs met.
The area in your chart with Capricorn on the cusp reveals the area of your life where you are ambitious, industrious and search for external success. You need recognition, some sort of autonomy, control or power, and can be somewhat conservative. The archetype for Capricorn would be ‘the Boss’ or the professional climbing the corporate ladder.
The opposite sign/house polarity is Cancer, the archetype of the Mother/carer/nurturer. There is always a delicate balance between what it takes to conquer the world or the biz/corporate ladder, and having a good solid foundation, strong roots, as well as internal reflection and guidance. In traditional heterosexual partnerships this polarity has been split between the male going off to work and the female taking on the home, children and nurturing. She misses out on all the great things that come with being out in the world, and he misses out on a wealth of love and connection. In truth we each need to meet the full extent of our needs, following our natural dispositions, regardless of what culture decrees for our gender, age, skin colour or heritage.
What area of life does this Full Moon fall in for you? If you have Capricorn on your 7th house cusp of Relationships you’d tend to prefer older partners (as does Angelina Jolie) as well as be somewhat upwardly mobile in your dating strategy. If you have Capricorn on the Cusp of your 9th house of higher education, teaching, and international travel, an opportunity or strategy in those areas should come to light over the next few days.
This link will take you to a New York Times article that illustrates the balance between Capricorn efficiency and how Cancerian care, empathy and shared personal stories are the keys to the most consistently successful teams. Seems like a no-brainer but illustrates how far the polarities still need to re-balance in Corporate Biz environments.
This month’s Full Moon is Square freedom-at-any-price Uranus in Aries, so just watch the foot on the accelerator if you’re thinking of making any fast moves for power or control. Make sure you don’t throw out any babies with the bath water. Think Moses, they come back years later serving up a better-late-than-never dish of cold, hard, karma. Dot your I’s and cross your t’s, make sure you’ve got everything signed and sealed.
Anything to do with Capricorn is best done properly. You won’t want to but innovation, doing things differently and sudden deviation from the course will cause you tension until you go with it. The more you resist the tenser it gets and the more extreme any course correction will seem.
Cheers and I hope you enjoy (and make the most of) the industrious and hardworking energy of Capricorn!

It’s a new Moon in Capricorn. I’m taking my own advice from the last post and initiating some changes as of now.
For your pleasure and personal transformation Astro All Starz will be posting each New Moon and Full Moon rather than every time the Moon transits a zodiac sign.
I’d love to know how you have utilize New Moon cycles..any epiphany on structuring your business, strategic planning etc? Nows the time.
You are loved, beloved,
