On December 23rd, there is a New Moon at one degree Capricorn – the last New Moon for 2022 – and the time to set your resolutions for 2023. Capricorn is cardinal and earthy, energy best suited for making plans and figuring out how to turn your dreams into goals.

Because as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said, ‘A goal without a plan is just a wish.’ Capricorn’s realistic approach turns those Sagittarius wishes into achievable goals, helping you to create the reality you want.


2022 started, and it will end with a New Moon in Capricorn. What wishes did you turn into achievements?

What has come to a complete cycle and is ready to be released in preparation for a new one?

Wherever you are now, know it is precisely where you need to be. The road to success is an emotional rollercoaster, and everyone is doing their best.

Let go of any unfulfilled expectations and clear the path to start afresh. This lunation has a very potent energy for a whole new book; the second of five New Moons, all at the first degree, carries the power of new beginnings.

2023 is a year of profound energy shifts.


The New Moon in Capricorn makes a challenging aspect (square) with Jupiter in Aries, the sign of the self.

Not far, Chiron – the wounded healer – also in Aries is turning direct.

This will bring focus to who you are and who you want to become.

It is your chance to realise that your wounds and experiences are the sources of your wisdom.

Your intuition is your guide to knowing the real you and your purpose.

Who you want to become is the real you, the one that exists when all the external voices have gone silent.

Spend time in nature, go for a walk. Leave the other’s voices outside by connecting with your body and through meditation. Journal.

You have come here to become in alignment with who you are, that first spark (Aries) that came into existence.

What does the real you want?

What kind of future do you want to build?

Do you believe it matters enough to commit to succeed?


Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is the time master and lord of karma. He is the teacher and tells you that commitment is the key to success.

And that you need to believe in it enough to make that commitment, overcome challenges and step out of your comfort zone.

Because you are here for a reason, and that matters. A lot for you and the rest of the world.

Set intentions for this New Moon, connect with your intuition to gain clarity during Mercury retrograde and prepare to take action in time for the New Moon in Aquarius, January 21st, when a new lunar year starts.

If you need clarification about your purpose and intentions for 2023, I invite you to join tomorrow’s New Moon in Capricorn Circle.

2023 comes with some significant shifts and new beginnings; there’s no point in rushing for something you want to last forever.

Have an excellent and magical 2023!

With love and care,


New Moon ceremonies to set intentions are an ancient practice. When we consciously write down what we want, we co-create with the Universe. And in the process, we dissolve our inner resistance. It is the time of the New Moon, and the following 8-12h AFTER are the most potent hours to set intentions. Up to 3 days is ok.
