This is our first new moon of the year and there's no better way to get you motivated than to have a new moon in Capricorn just after the start of the new year. Known as the Sea Goat, Capricorn is practical, steadfast, and determined to get shit done. Here's what you need to know about this new moon in Cap to help you stick to your New Year's resolutions.


After the stresses + indulgences of the holiday season, we could all use a reset as we cross the threshold into the new year. Before doing anything for new moon intentions or new year's resolutions, take pause and give yourself the time + space to get grounded. Being in the right mindset before setting out to doing anything is crucial to its success, so be sure you're given yourself the time you need to ground and reset.


Capricorn is without a doubt the workhorse (or work-goat) of the zodiac wheel. They thrive on work + being productive because they know how deeply rewarding success and their achieving goals can be. This ability to look ahead and plan for the long-term is the secret weapon to Capricorns' success. When setting your new moon intentions or your new year's resolutions, keep your future self in mind. Trying to plan out your future is a scary task for many, but I promise that your future self will thank you!


Challenges are typically daunting, but not in the eyes of the Sea Goat. For Capricorn, there is no mountain too high to climb. When setting your intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle or new year, don't allow potential road blocks or challenges to stop you from setting out to achieve what you want. Instead, embrace the challenge, use it as an opportunity to push yourself, and take advantage of this opportunity to grow.

Here is this new moon's tarot spread, designed to help you with goal setting for this new moon.
