Crescent Moon GoddessJanuary 9, 2016 at 5:30 pm PT is a new Moon in Capricorn. The Sun, new Moon, Mercury, and Pluto are all in  Earth sign Capricorn. This lunar cycle is time to focus on earth-plane matters such as health, finances, and completing projects. Mercury is still retrograde until January 25 that’s good to redo, review, and restructure.

Very fortunate is that the Sun, new Moon, and Mercury trine Jupiter in Virgo. Jupiter trines bring luck and good fortune. You can plan, organize, and see the big picture. 

Love planet Venus conjuncts Saturn so relationships are more serious, and loyalty is important. Some relationships could break up if there is not a solid foundation, but timing is right to let go. Plus the Sun and new Moon square Uranus that can be disruptive, so stick to your routine under the influence of steady Capricorn.


This new Moon begins the month of the Earth Ox. Solid Ox values honesty, integrity of character, and reward from hard work. Click here to learn about the characteristics of the Ox. Use this final month of Sheep year to get organized and tidy up before Monkey year begins on the next new Moon. Do not start Monkey year running on empty!

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and those born in Ox, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years. Call me at 415.642.8019 in San Francisco or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for 2016.
