What better time to consider your New Year’s resolutions than under the beams of the disciplined, ambitious and supportive Capricorn New Moon, which will exact on 29th December 2016 at 04:53pm (AEST)?
Not only is Capricorn energy great for taking responsibility, setting boundaries and for putting foundations into place (Where do you see yourself at the close of 2017?), but Mercury is also travelling retrograde through this sign calling us to review where we’re at and to contemplate our future.
On top of that we also have Jupiter (planet of growth/expansion) activating both Pluto and Uranus from now until the middle of 2017 pushing us to new adventures, change and transformation … And!!
(Yes!!, there’s more) …
Numerologically speaking 2017 is a year of beginnings (2+0+1+7 = 10 = 1+0 = 1).
Change is undoubtedly in the air and if you’re feeling anything like me, you’re certainly ready for it!!
What do you wish to bring forth for this new cycle?
Each numerological cycle lasts for 9 years, so you may not only want to consider your plans for 2017, but also where you’re headed until 2026.
The New Moon will fall at 7 degrees and 59 seconds of Capricorn and forms an easy opposition with the current Mars/Neptune/South Node conjunction in Pisces and the North Node in Virgo.
What did you come here to do? What seeds will you now plant towards making those dreams a reality?
What work is needed?
Remember to check where this New Moon energy falls in your chart. Which house (life area) is up for change and are any of your natal planets being activated (look for planets between 7 and 8 degrees).

Mercury will be retrograde until 8th January 2017, so I’d personally hold off on instigating those new beginnings until after this date (if that’s possible of course).
Instead, I’d spend the next two weeks seriously considering how you can redefine your life, so that you can open to greater personal freedom.
Researching possibilities and reviewing what isn’t working could lead to some fresh, new insights once Mercury turns direct (see a picture of Mercury’s retrograde timeline here).
Also be mindful of where pessimism, fear, duty, guilt, a lack of personal authority (i.e. constantly wanting others’ approval) and feelings of inferiority may be holding you back from creating a life you love, as these can be negative expressions of Capricorn energy.
Wishing you a beautiful, inspiring year and a 9 year cycle of adventure, growth and freedom.
Much Love, Toria xo
