During the phase of a New Moon, the lunar disk is almost completely invisible to the naked eye until daybreak when it will appear as a tiny little crescent, which will get bigger and bigger, day by day.
Energy of a New Moon!
The New Moon has the energy to cause change to the human body and our mental health. This happens as the Moon’s energy has the power to control the ebbs and flows of the ocean and can even impact human behaviors. We’re mostly made of water so it’s no surprise that we are also affected by the gravitational pull of the Moon. This is why, in Astronomy, the energy of the New Moon is regarded as such a highly-influential force. The energy of the New Moon helps people grow spiritually as they seek out the Moon’s healing energy. This New Moon phase represents a fresh start for those who welcome it as an opportunity to celebrate new beginnings, to embark on life transitions, and to obtain spiritual healing from this Moon’s massive positive energy.
Finding Balance in Nature!
A Capricorn New Moon has us appreciating all the good in the world, and the importance of staying close to Nature, which is an epic challenge in today’s world. If you’re overwhelmed, go out into the forest, or lie in the park, on a nice blanket on the ground. Try earthing, which is basically going barefoot. You find balance when you listen to your body and follow your instincts about what is authentic. Being an earth sign Moon, we have intense feelings for physical contact, so seek out a friend and try to unwind and enjoy this Moon.
December 26, 2019 – New Moon in Capricorn – Refresh Your Dreams!
This New Moon in Capricorn marks the start of a new Lunar cycle, as well as the start of a new personal cycle. The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky until daybreak, when it will appear as a tiny little crescent. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. The Moon is so powerful, it is responsible for moving oceans, the ocean tides and for the growth of plants, and we as humans are also affected by this powerful energy. The meaning of a New Moon is the opportunity to start anew and refresh your dreams and desires. Meditate in the quiet darkness of the New Moon on all you hope to accomplish. As it’s also the day after a major holiday for many, Christmas, today is a day for rest.
Set Your Intentions!
Both the Moon and Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon… giving an exponential boost or concentration of their energy. During a Capricorn New Moon, you are happiest with a dream in the process since you are not likely to enjoy idle time. For whatever path you’re on, opening to working with planetary energies links you to the power of the Divine. The New Moon is an important time to analyze where you want to be, going forward. This particular Full Moon gives you the perfect opportunity to set your intentions for the month, to start anew with fresh goals in mind, and to have a ceremony or ritual that wipes the slate clean.

A Ritual for the New Moon:
For a powerful New Moon Ritual, start by lighting the end of a sage wand and blow on it until there is a smoldering glow. Use it around your own body, and in the space of your ritual. Smudging brings clarity and peace.
Start a few days before the New Moon.
Write down all of your wishes, dreams, intentions, and desires. Be as specific as you can.
On the night of the New Moon, read your list aloud. You can go outside beneath the sky or you can light a candle inside in offering.
Give thanks to the Universe for hearing your truth.
A big part of success with new Moon intentions is what comes after. Find ways to keep your wishes in the front of your awareness.
Read your list as often as you can until the night of the New Moon and then release the energy in sacred fire of your candle.
Some people choose to journal their list and keep it instead of burning it. Do the practice whichever way you feel comfortable.
