A Shift In Priorities | New Moon In Capricorn

By January 11, 2021 Astrology

Dear Friends, 

Have you been beginning to notice what needs to change in your life in order for steady progress to be made?

The upcoming new moon in Capricorn will allow for just this. 

Happening on January 12th or 13th, depending on where you live, the new moon could bring a necessary crisis or surprise into your life to help you shift gears and start focusing on your real priorities.

You can expect to feel the new moon’s influence three days before and three days after the 12th-13th. So be prepared for a bit of a bumpy ride until then.

Right now, a new beginning is happening in your life. It’s related to something you’ve been working on changing over the past two years. 

Occurring at 23’ Capricorn, this new moon may bring new perspective to a power struggle or challenge you’ve been experiencing that has been getting in the way of achieving what really matters to you.

This challenge is somehow related to events or realizations that occurred during the July 16th 2019 eclipse at 24’ Capricorn. Think back to that time period. What was happening then will give you important clues about where in your life this new moon is delivering a new possibility.

Over the coming days, you will be able to integrate lessons around where you went wrong in the past, and will be given a fresh opportunity to manage control issues or power struggles in a more productive and empowering way.

It’s likely this new moon could bring dramatic events, crises, surprises, and power plays into your life, as a way to help facilitate these changes. So let’s take a deeper look at this catalyzing new moon, and find out how to turn its energies toward your advantage.

A New Kind of Power

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you were willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen? 

With the new moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, you may be starting to notice that “whatever it takes” isn’t always the best approach.

A massive release of misaligned energy is possible now, bringing with it an opportunity to rededicate your energy in a more useful and productive way. 

If you’ve been going about getting what you want in the wrong way, dramatic situations involving a shocking turn of events or power struggles could serve as the messenger for where you have been missing the mark.

Pay attention to anything upsetting you over this next week. If you try to force people or events around you to change, it will only make matters worse. Instead, notice how you could adjust your approach internally, and align with your desires in a more practical, matter-of-fact way.

The coming days will be highlighting an urgent need to eliminate the non-essential elements in your life that have been holding you back from what truly matters to you.

With several intense aspects accompanying the new moon from Uranus, Mars, and Pluto, it will be important to keep your cool and have a detached, objective view of your situation. 

The moon in Capricorn can be a bit cold. However, you can work with its calculating energy by taking on a more practical, efficient outlook. This will help you stay focused on what’s essential without getting swept away by strong emotions.

You are being pushed to make necessary internal changes right now, and to take care of your boundaries, duties, and all your physical needs in a big way. 

Your focus is taking a more serious turn over this next week, helping you become more grounded, and shifting the nature of your responsibilities toward greater alignment. 

Your inner relationship to power is also transforming. If you pay attention to the lessons now, you can learn how to bring more power into your life with less conflict and effort.

With new awareness, comes new possibilities. It’s quite possible this moon will coincide with a strong shift in your direction. A fresh opportunity for achieving your goals is starting to become clear, and you might have to pivot your direction to take advantage of it.

A Sudden Shift In Your Desire

Over the week ahead, it’s a good idea to stay on your toes and be ready to make lightning flash adjustments to your plans.

Mars, the planet of action and desire, will be conjunct Uranus, the planet of upheaval and truth. This could cause your desires and goals to shift suddenly, as the result of a spontaneous insight or opportunity. 

A strong burst of energy will fuel a newfound urge to follow your inner truth and abandon the status quo. 

If you’ve been chasing a direction that really doesn’t serve you, or wasting your energy only doing what’s expected of you, continuing to do so will become unbearable over the coming days.

Right now, you need freedom, and won’t tolerate being held back or obstructed. You need space to use your energy in the way that works best for you, so you can pursue what you truly, deeply value.

Be aware, this conjunction can cause you to take revolutionary action. Sometimes powerful changes are necessary, just make sure you are truly pursuing change and not just reacting.

The new moon and Pluto in a challenging aspect to the Uranus and Mars makes for a potentially explosive week ahead. Mind your temper and don’t provoke others if you feel angry.

Instead, remember to breathe and allow any strong emotions to settle before making any big moves or taking action you might later regret.

Hang in there! 

There’s a beautiful path unfolding for you, full of meaning and purpose, on the other side of this turbulent new moon.

You are loved. 

Flowing with the changing times,

    Have to leave my apartment after February. Been a HUGE power struggle for over a year. Has been a difficult decision, but must be made due to my emotional stability and peace of mind. My health has taken a toll and now I must let it go.

    Hi Luna, this is a bit strange as I’m reading the email after I had a huge fight with my Boyfriend. He had cheated last year and lied so much about the situations surrounding that relationship and I forgave him.

    We decided to move in together this year from the 1st of Jan and on the 11th he confessed to all his lies. I felt broken and trapped at the same time as we share a space together

  • Pinyora says:

    Yes I definitely feels the power struggle in my life and also see the light in the opportunity ahead but no one ever said life is easy, thank you Luna Dragonwell for being my guidance and light it’s definitely delighted to read every note and article from you.

  • BEATRIZ says:

    I’ve been through many changes lately. And reading this is letting me know where to focus my attention. Thank you very much Luna.

  • Linda Jones says:

    Hello Mrs Luna,
    I, really enjoy your Tarot Readings. They really hit home!!!

    THANK YOU ❤️

  • Al says:

    The change I’m going through is unmasking my fears and facing reality. Living in the present and forgetting the past. This will certainly help me attain my goals much easier, funny you mentioned the last two years as it has been about that long I have been rethinking my approach to life as a sober minded man instead of the mask.

  • Kala says:

    I am in the process of transitioning from full time property management to Home Sales. I have new priorities but unfortunately until I can relieve my work load my focus goes back to my properties I manage instead of my new priorities. Which by the end of February I hope I will be on the track I desire.

  • Ollie L Alridge says:

    Thanks for all.

  • Surya says:

    Hello Luna, Great Post and spot on! Yes, there has been a power struggle happening in this current lifetime and most likely all my previous lifetimes! I am very clear on what I want! Keep up the good work.

    Ob prebiranju vseh člankov iz sveta Tarota, ter napovedi, se mi utrne marsikatera misel, ki mi daje vzpodbudo, in napotke, za razvoj svojega uma, in duha.
    Ko se odločimo prehoditi pot preobrazbe, je ta marsikdaj trnova, in veliko poguma je potrebno, da se soočimo z vsemi ovirami, ki nam preprečujejo premik v pravo smer.
    Če izpostavim sebe, lahko trdim, da se s tem že veliko časa bojujem, in za kar sem hvaležna za vsak trn, ki mi je prebadal dušo, in srce.
    Marsikomu se moram zahvaliti, da sem danes taka kot sem, čeprav so v življenju vedno ovire, katerim se težko izognemo, vendar vztrajnost naj bi bila tudi mati modrosti, ki nas uči, da iz slabega se vedno vrača dobro.
    Trenutno imam pred sabo svetlobo, za kar si želim, da bi tako tudi ostalo.
    Z vsem spoštovanjem.

    This is spot on. I have thought about moving home for several years but that’s all it has been. But I have just put my plan into place to move back to the country of my birth. It will take a couple of years but I spoke to my employer about still working for them from a different country and they are very positive about it. I’m so glad that I have made this decision. It’s scary but wonderful. The power shift you talk about isn’t external …. its within me. I stopped letting things happen to me and decided to control my own destiny.

  • Tony says:

    Its on spot… The energies thats Been blockt and relations that not Been serving är slowly to tid Dolce

  • Dawn says:

    Great post. I really thought this was meant for me. I do feel change. It’s scary as I have no idea of the then it’ll take. At this time I’m learning to be more grounded in myself and my goals. Loosening the rope of control. My control was of protection and of proving myself and others that I can do it and making rash decisions that seemed to get no more further than if I patiently handled things clear headed. I’m also making a decision about my needs and those around me when it comes to relationships. I have to stand up for myself and not place myself in situations I know will not turn out right. I have to listen to my inner self and hold fast and wait. Dissect! Heal before I can offer myself to be loved and love. I could write more but like I said this really hit and felt like this was written for me! Like you’re cosmic powers steered you to send this solely for me
