Happy New Year! On the 2nd of January, there is a New Moon at 12 degrees Capricorn. This is a great New Moon to set intentions for the year ahead.

Capricorn is the sign of planning, commitment, achieving and determination. Use the energies of the New Moon in Capricorn to make a plan for 2022.

While 2021 has been a challenging year for growth and changes, 2022 will bring loving and magical energy to nurture what you have created this past year.


The lord of time (Saturn) and the rebel (Uranus) have been battling this year between wanting to change and feeling restricted. Between making radical changes or taking the slow pace. Maybe it is about holding both and being afraid of neither.

The New Moon in Capricorn is trine (positive aspect) to Uranus, the planet of change, helping you to have the courage to step out of your comfort zone into the unknown and face up to fear as you go along.


During this New Moon in Capricorn, Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, will be aligned (conjunct) to Venus and Mercury, bringing transformation to your value and ideas.

What are your true values?
What ideas are no longer in line with who you have become?

This month Venus is in retrograde and Mercury will be soon, expect to reconsider some of the decisions you might have made.

Take it easy

Considering this retrograde energy, don’t rush to make a plan. Take the time to look within; there will be a lot of forward energy in the spring.

Return to your own needs, rest mind, body and soul to gather the energy and resources be ready for when the blossoming energy of the spring comes.

A couple of weeks after this New Moon in Capricorn, there will be a Full Moon in Cancer and a new Mercury cycle starting when the plans for 2022 can come together, considering your self-care (Full Moon in Cancer).

Setting intentions

Plan considering your wellbeing and set intentions following your heart.

Achieving (Capricorn) is as important as self-care (Cancer).

New Moon ceremonies to set intentions is 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.

Wishing you a magical 2022!
