The first new moon of 2021 falls in the steadfast, tireless, goal-oriented sign of Capricorn. As a cardinal earth sign, Capricorn is the initiator of projects – always presenting groundbreaking new ideas, and working hard to bring them to fruition.
New Moons are a time for recharging, resetting, and planning for the month ahead. It’s a time of new beginnings and direction changes. With Capricorn in charge this month, we’re inspired to #makeithappen, achieve our goals, and lay the groundwork for our future.
While last month’s Sagittarius New Moon was about adventure and expression, this month, it’s all about harnessing and tapping into that super motivated, driven, disciplined Capricorn energy. It’s a powerful moment to direct the course of our future with the help of Capricorn’s #neverquit motivational vibrations. When we can align with the ever-shifting energies of the Universe, we start living in flow rather than struggle. Our lives start to feel lighter, more joyful, and effortlessly right.
How to align with and integrate this Tony Robbins – level action-oriented energy:
Capricorns are their own life coach – constantly getting clarity on their goals and putting all their sea goat energy into achieving them. Take some time this new moon to reflect on your life path – are you heading in the right direction, what are you long-term and short-term goals for your future?
Remember, Capricorn is a marathoner, not a sprinter, so focus on deeply fulfilling, meaningful goals rather than quick fixes that might bring only momentary satisfaction. Feel into what would really bring you joy and what path feels most aligned for you.
Especially in the era of COVID, it’s easy to fall into a less-than-motivated, loungey slump. And girl, don’t feel bad about it – we’re right there with you! Luckily we’re getting a dose of Capricorn energy to reengage our blah pandemic-fueled spirit.
The perpetual achiever, Capricorns are super diligent in their efforts – not wasting a moment in non-productive endeavors. Take a page from their book and make a daily schedule that ensures all your goals get the attention they deserve.
Whether that’s penciling in a meditation moment, working in a workout window, or slotting in a slice of time for that big project you’re planning – add it to your schedule for added focus! And remember, it’s about what feels aligned for you – if you’re focusing on getting more sleep, that’s amazing! If you’re geared towards getting in shape – work it! And if you’re looking for more calm – allow that in.
Clean up your space to help declutter your mind! It’s amazing how our outer surroundings can affect our mood and motivation. Take a page from The Home Edit on Netflix and invest in some storage containers and rainbow color coding logic to get your workspace, workout room, Zen space, or creative space in aesthetically pleasing order. You’ll feel relaxed, recharged, and ready to harness that goal-crushing Capricorn energy.
There’s a reason you haven’t finished that project or reached that next step – and it’s usually a long-held limiting belief you’re holding onto. We’re all our own worst saboteur in one way or another, and now’s the time to release the limiting beliefs and negative self-talk that’s holding us back and dimming our light.
Whether you feel like you don’t deserve it, wonder if you’re capable, believe you’re not ready, now’s the time to acknowledge and recognize these beliefs and release them. Let’s step into our truth and embrace who we’re meant to be without fear and self-doubt.
How to move beyond limiting beliefs:
The Capricorn spirit is all about laying the foundation for the future in the most logical, sustainable way. Invest in the resources and help that will make reaching your goals doable – whether that’s hiring help, investing in an online course, or purchasing some new equipment – Capricorn energy is long-term and fully believes in investing in a great idea to make it happen.
As an Earth sign, Capricorn is all about protecting, preserving and honoring this planet. So, now’s a great time to commune with nature, focus on projects that uplift our planet, and try to greenify your own life. With Veganuary underway, think about integrating more plant-based meals and vegan beauty products into your life to both feel better and show the earth some love.
The next new moon falls on February 11th in the eccentric, innovative, slightly rebellious sign of Aquarius. Stay tuned for more on the Aquarius New Moon energies next month!

Let’s all dance and sing and clap our hands that 2020 is O-V-E-R! As we say #bye to this year, and gratefully enter 2021, we step fully into the Age of Aquarius. Just like Aquarians themselves, this moment is about uplifting the collective. It’s about raising the vibrations of the whole by raising ourselves up individually - it means loving each other by loving ourselves.
In today’s blog, we’re sharing #goodvibesonly rituals to uplift your energy, raise up your consciousness, shake off last year’s bad juju, and enter 2021 feeling cosmically and joyfully aligned!
