This new moon is the biggest opportunity to seed that cycle, effectively.
To live intentionally, we need to set intentions.
In order to set intentions effectively though we need to understand this time period. Here is what one of my favorite astrology writers has to say about this degree of the new moon:
"You are karmically at a crossroads, trying on for size strong selfhood and its inevitable shadow of pervasive doubts and negations. Learning and discovering arduously how to stay with yourself, even while going against oneself. And thereby outlasting the adversary, and proving that one can do the impossible, even when one is one's own fiercest critic and hardest-to-impress audience." Elias Longsdale
Make sure you consider that there are six planets in Capricorn: Venus, Pluto, Sun, Moon, Saturn and Mercury. Let alone the asteroids, Black Moon Lilith and Eros. Why yes, this is a rare time.
Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008, remember that financial repression? When a planet first goes into a sign we typically feel it the most. This new moon is bringing back up lack and stress for many. But it's not without purpose, it's uncovering our unconscious fears. So look to where 26/27 degrees of Capricorn is in your chart.

Money isn't real, but the energy behind it is. So let's be smart and let ourselves look at where our energy has been held back, the stories that we've told ourselves about our abilities.
Capricorn is all about structure building and it takes a certain practicality that many other zodiac signs don't have. Capricorn is patient, strategic, and realistic. This new moon offers the opportunity to get practical and set goals that are actually achievable this year.
This new moon also has four of those Capricorn planets: Venus, Pluto, Sun and Moon squaring Uranus in Aries which brings awareness to our fears, awareness to where we've held ourselves back, it's a huge aha moment and the wake up call that your heart has been aching for.
And then we have Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio expanding all the depth and debri remember Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, plus all that is trining Neptune in Pisces so the emotions and dreams are a good focus this week to understanding what you are working out. We must balance all this earth with water. Swim our way through the heaviness. Because we can never escape those basic emotions that are within us, even when we want to just be practical.
I thought it was hilarious in yoga yesterday how intuitively aligned the teacher was when the whole class had it's focus on the back of the heart and opening up to it. Because it's the back of the heart that is the area where we store the most painful beliefs about trust and love, and the things in our heart that we hid even from ourselves. We need to bring it forward so that we can see it, love on it, in order to finally let it go. But it's prickly and not very fun to look at. It's still important work to move forward and be successful.
This is not something that I personally enjoy, how about you? Oh damn there is that inner child again, daddy issues again ok fuck more, let me see you, let me hold you, now move along I've got shit to do.
But this is such important work in order to move forward and meet our goals.
We have to work to have the courage to see things differently and create a new story.
We often fixate our point of attraction on what we don’t want so that we can keep telling our same sad story.
Poor poor soul.
It’s time for us to leave that shit behind for good.
Right now the energies are encouraging us to open our hearts to a new story, open our minds to new beginnings, open our dna to be restructured.
It’s time to work.
Big times we are in.
Take time to feel and release then write a new story for yourself.
Then fucking believe it’s possible and act from that place.
Why is that so scary? But it is.
And yet the time has come.
