There’s nothing like a New Moon, a new beginning, at the start of a New Year. And this one in Capricorn is just what we need to set ourselves up for 2021. Earth sign, Capricorn, reminds us to set a strong foundation for the year—one we will build upon with determination and patience. The imagery of a goat barreling through a wall over and over again, slowly chipping away, is exactly what this lunation is all about. Fiercely determined, but steady and patient, is the energy La Luna is bestowing upon us all tonight.

Now is the time to set goals related to Saturn-ruled Capricorn: work, finances, and the overall direction of your life. Are you happy in your current career path? Is there a project you’d like to start? Did you take a detour from your goals somewhere? Take what you’ve learned this last chaotic year and let Capricorn help you channel it into effective action. It will take a lot of hard work, discipline and resilience, but trust that Mother Moon will provide the answers you seek. Check where Capricorn is located in your birth chart; this is where you will innately persevere towards your greatest legacy.
