On December 25/26th we are hit with a powerful New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Conjunct with Jupiter, this marks a day of serious good fortune. While Eclipses aren’t a time of planting new seeds, but New Moons are and so the energy is a bit confusing with where to go, what to start, and what to plan. This is a day of expecting miracles to help push old projects to completion, in finalizing what we have worked on throughout 2019, so to make a clean slate for 2020. Consider this your Christmas present from the cosmos, bringing good tidings and cheer!
When the Moon is in Capricorn, it is at it’s most organized and focused on practicality. Business-minded Capricorn puts a major emphasis on our goals for the future, making them all-important and to take responsibility seriously in how we act towards the things we want.
The energies from this celestial event comes in great timing so to take those New Year’s Resolutions seriously in considering where we need more structure in areas of our lives that are scattered and disruptive.
We need more rules, guidelines, and a solid plan of action to put into play. We cannot reach for the goals we treasure if we are surrounded by chaos or take part in lifestyle activities that cater to the mess around us. Self-improvement is the name and game of this New Moon & Solar Eclipse, as this will lead to the improvement we need within our environment as well. It all starts with you.
A Solar Eclipse happens when the Sun, Moon, and the Earth are perfectly aligned, allowing the moon to cast a shadow onto the Earth, blocking the Sun’s light. Ancients believed this was a time of doom, or quiet contemplation as the Sun was always deemed as their divine protector and bringer of life, and the darkness of night was to be feared, and so an Eclipse often meant that evil was over-powering the divine. This was when sacrifices were made to appease their angry Gods. Today, thanks to Science, we now know that this is an occurrence that happens because of the celestial bodies in their orbit around the solar system.
Tarot Reading for the New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn
IV the Emperor
Card is from the Wild Unknown Tarot
I love how there is a Solar Eclipse on this card’s image. It totally aligns with its meaning and the artist’s interpretation.
The Emperor says it is time to act – while the Eclipse energies call for quiet contemplation, this is where we consider what actions we must put forth, where are next steps should be, and what is the best way to go about the goals and desires we hold dear to our heart.
You probably already have that dream board made and have carefully put together a solid to-do list for the next year to come. Rather than sitting and imagining what if – what if you actually started acting upon those things, it is time to start planning those steps. The opportunities you desire will not just fall into your lap; you must work for them and bring them to life. Only YOU can make your dreams come true.
This is also a time to understand your role in the lives of others, and your business, in how your actions affect others around you. You have to take on responsibility for what you do, in understanding that the even the smallest of actions on your part play a major part in the lives of others. It is time to stand up on that podium and to lead by example.

Time to collaborate.
While you are so fiercely independent, Aries, and you prefer to work on your own, you still serve as a valuable team player, that is when you find the right team. The New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn tears the masks off some of your so-called friends or connections, and reveals how truly toxic they are to you, and how their influence is not serving your highest good. It is time to branch out and find a better tribe, Aries, one that caters to your growth and higher path.
You see clearly now.
The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse gives a powerful boost to your intuition. You have been harboring so many feelings lately, and much of these are gut feelings of what is about to take place. While it may be things you fear, you need to consider a game plan of how to go about these events taking place and consider these fearful gut feelings to be predictions allowing for you to get a head start and fair warning.
Be generous of spirit.
The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse is hitting you pretty hard, Gemini, but it isn’t anything bad – you are being led towards a more giving path, a path of showcasing others what you have to offer which in turn helps them succeed and also trickles back down to you in terms of good fortune for your good deeds. This is a time for you to pay it forward, and to watch in awe at how your gift keeps circling around to others and when it comes back to you, it has grown in size from all of the gratitude and grace it was received with by others.
Watch and wait.
Don’t rush into a decision just yet, Cancer, and allow things to settle down first. You are a bit misguided by your emotions right now and need to find a sense of grounding. Observe, a bit more detached, and then cast your judgement with a different perspective intact. The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse is here to grant you a different view on a situation that has been bothering you for some time now, and this new perspective may help you turn things around for the better.
Time for a deep dive.
The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse hits you heavily with those cosmic downloads. You feel an inner calling to dive deep within your soul and to connect with your higher self. You are noble, Leo, and you have an expansive spirit that is felt by many when you are connected to source and act as its voice box and use your vessel to perform its miracles. You are being called for a higher purpose. Leo, allow spirit to move through you.
Watch your words
A lot of things said in the state of anger can do far more damage than you realize. You might not be feeling like your best self, Virgo, and if you’re not careful you could end up saying something out of sorts which may hurt someone you care about, and change the quality of your relationship with them in the long run. Even though you often speak up when you want someone to do better for themselves, sometimes your criticism isn’t taken as constructive. Bite your tongue, Virgo, and if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Act as if.
As they say, if you can’t beat them – join them… This means that you have been acting as a door mat to others who have firm boundaries in what they would do for you in return. You have to adapt to this quality and start drawing the line in what you will also do for others. The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse is all about revealing the harsh truth of how not everyone has the best intentions for you and are just taking what you offer as a handout. Put your hand away and start giving to yourself.
Time for a deep dive.
The New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn brings you closer to your soul – while you are a sign which is very spiritual and spirit-oriented, you feel it heavy with this New Moon. You may receive some intense cosmic downloads which have you searching inward for a deeper connection with Source and your spirit.
Scarab Beetle Spirit
Magic works through you.
YOU are the most powerful tool you own when it comes to conducting any ritual or magical wish. Your intentions and powerful mind create and shape your reality, allowing for your greatest dreams to come true, and if you aren’t careful or practice a sense of mindfulness, so can your nightmares… The New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn reminds you of the power you encompass within, and how to use it.
Time to let go.
The New Moon & Solar Eclipse are working heavily on you, placing your sign in the spotlight. Letting go is never easy, especially when you have invested so much of yourself into a cause that seems to have been lost. You don’t do so well with failure and hate to have to throw in the towel. But it seems that you need to change your sense of direction towards higher goals that are better for you, than this ever was to begin with.
Spirit has your back.
If you weren’t afraid, what could you do? Fear is a liar that causes you to miss out on valuable opportunities and to stand still when you need to instead move forward. The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse reminds you that you have a massive team of not just your spiritual guides and protectors, but of close friends and family that all wants to see you achieve what you desire the most.
Take a leap of faith.
An amazing opportunity is coming your way, Pisces, and it might seem that it is a shot in the dark. As you weigh the good and the bad about this situation, you might find yourself stumped on what to do. You don’t want to miss out on this, but you also don’t want to go in blindly. While taking a leap of faith might not seem that practical, you have to understand that sometimes dreams come true only when you take that shot in the dark and go in with your eyes closed. So, take a deep breath, Pisces, and make the jump.
