The Christmas Eve New Moon in ordinarily orderly Capricorn is packed with complexity and potential complications this December 24. Power struggles are possible with potent Pluto's conjunction to the Sun and Moon in this authoritarian sign. But rebellious Uranus' challenging square to this lunation is popping with surprises and an independent spirit that enlivens the holidays with originality . . . or upsets them with sudden changes of plans.
Look up your sign below for what to expect with this New Moon amid the holiday hubbub!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
"Who's the boss?" is a likely question as this domineering Capricorn New Moon falls in your 10th House of Career and Public Responsibility. You might feel like others are undermining your authority or, perhaps, you're thinking about walking away from some arduous obligations. Eliminating duties that don't fulfill you, though, makes way for rising ambition and future professional growth.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Travel plans<> could be complicated by this dynamic New Moon in your 9th House of Faraway Places. Plan carefully and leave plenty of time to reduce complications. Battles over political or religious points of view can also be triggered by this transit. Hunkering down to stubbornly hold on to your position can put up barriers, while a more open mind is friendlier and can teach you something worthwhile.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
This ambitious Capricorn New Moon lands in your 8th House of Intimacy where it stirs up relationship issues. Commitments need to be clarified so that you know where you stand with personal and professional partners. Yet even the most reliable individual may have a sudden change of heart as electrifying Uranus springs surprises that can suddenly alter shared expectations and goals.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You're ready to reach out to new people and to express yourself with greater authority. This ambitious Capricorn New Moon lands in your public 7th House of Others, showing your readiness to take the initiative in all of your relationships. You may be reluctant to rock the boat and risk rejection, yet you are more likely to find success when you follow your own instincts instead of trying to placate others.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
The focus is on work, training, and your daily routine with this disciplined Capricorn New Moon in your 6th House of Service. Stay humble so that you avoid conflict or power struggles with bosses or bossy people. It's not worth struggling to stick to a system that no longer fits your needs. Altering habits, including diet and exercise, can get you further than rigidly adhering to outmoded rules.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
This uncharacteristically rowdy New Moon in Capricorn can spring surprises and upheaval in romance, creative projects, self-expression and even with children. It falls in your 5th House of Play, which rules these diverse areas that may be shaken by sudden shifts of mood or circumstances. Being flexible is vital, since force and persistence are unlikely to keep these changes from occurring anyway.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Changes on the home front are likely with this powerful Capricorn New Moon in your 4th House of Roots. It may be that you're simply unwilling to overlook dissatisfaction that you've pushed aside in the past. Accommodating others isn't nearly as important as being true to your own desires, even if you recognize that fulfilling your needs may be upsetting to those closest to you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Making yourself clear to others may require more effort than usual. This New Moon in disciplined Capricorn lands in your 3rd House of Communication, requiring more thought and effort to make your point. Rebellious Uranus' tense relationship with this event can interrupt your studies, but also might open your mind to totally new and different subjects that will stimulate fresh ideas.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Money matters may demand more attention with this New Moon in your 2nd House of Resources. Managing finances, though, may be tricky if you encounter unexpected expenses or shortfalls in income. The purpose of this event is to awaken you to alternative ways to increase your cash flow, which may involve ambitious ideas that will require patience and focus to put into place.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
The New Moon in your sign can spur some major changes in your appearance and approach to others. Revolutionary Uranus' challenging angle to the Sun and Moon could also incite some risky behavior. It's fine to break some of your personal rules if that gives you the sense of freedom you seek. However, exploring new territory and still meeting your current obligations will require some innovative thinking.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
This powerful New Moon falls in your 12th House of Spirituality where it can provoke unusual experiences and strange ideas. This is an excellent time to begin practices like meditation, prayer or yoga that reconnect you with your sense of divinity. It's best, though, to avoid impulsive actions that affect your professional life, as the real work that counts for you now is private rather than public.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Getting along with friends and colleagues can be more challenging with this disruptive New Moon in your 11th House of Groups. You're going to have to assert your authority with a combination of self-control and flexibility to avoid complications. Yet this can also give you a fresh perspective on leadership that allows you to earn respect and advance your personal and professional interests.
