Here you'll learn about the energy and theme of each New Moon.
The Capricorn New Moon comes a wee early on the day after Christmas but that's okay 'cause as you detox from all the decadence you can also energetically assess and release 2019 to make room and plan for 2020 - a new DECADE!
And wow! what supercharged energy to end 2019 and blast you into 2020 as it's also a Solar Eclipse! Eclipses, which block light, take away things you no longer need and ultimately allow you to see what is really going on in spellbinding clarity.
Capricorn, the sign of goal-setting, feels right at home during a New Moon - a time you are reflecting on what has just passed and setting intentions for what you desire. So the main theme for this New Moon: goals, dreams and aspirations, especially related to career as Capricorn is a builder, in a very methodical and persevering way. This zodiac sign also builds for community, is the keeper of the planet, builds for the future. Keep this in mind as you set your intentions, knowing you are here to serve others and a higher good.
Saturn, which rules Capricorn, has been in its home sign all this year, so if you've been focused and working consistently for your highest purpose you will be abundantly rewarded by the time 2020 is over. This New Moon is for you to finish out 2019 with feet firmly rooted for one more double punch followed up with a left hook jab! Keep your gaze on the horizon, get 'er done and reap the rewards in 2020!
When the New Moon is in optimistic and wonder-struck Sagittarius, you'll be itching to expand your horizons in every way. Fiery Sag is the zodiac’s traveler, so will you journey across an ocean? Start an independent venture? Dive deep into learning something new?
This will be the month that you will ignite some freedom, in whatever that represents for you. Sagittarius' fire element is expressed through inspired acts that are led by intuitive impulses. It's the surge forward into new ground, often without restraint. Make sure, however, to aim the Archer's arrow toward pursuits that benefit from forward moving, growth, and expansion not toward pettiness and drama.
As this New Moon occurs 2 days before Thanksgiving kicking off the holiday season, Sagittarius' proclivity for merriment, traveling, and knowledge seeking may just have you road tripping to your favorite aunt across the country in search of her pearls of wisdom on your family's ancestry. Enjoy the ride!
If ever there was a time of year to honor nature's watery energy to dive deep into your psyche, metaphorically die and swim back to the surface to breathe in the fresh air of renewal, a Scorpio New Moon and all of November would be that time.
And "Why would I want to do that?" you ask. I am doing just fine bobbing along the surface of my life. I think I'd like to avoid "death" you say. I know you generally have an aversion to death and endings as most Western cultures don't cultivate that life-death-rebirth is the natural cycle of nature, but well, we are nature. Scorpio season is here to remind you of this. You are meant to align your inner world with your outer world as a reflection of your true self during this New Moon. Take the more inward traits of Scorpio- passionate, resourceful, deep and perceptive- and consider how to positively add these qualities into your life.
Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on your self-mastery skills. The end of 2019 is quickly approaching, so pinpoint the things in your life that make you feel out of control, such as addictions and debts, and work on freeing yourself of these emotional burdens. Go inward, face your shadow side and take some time to explore what is missing in your life that leads to any self-destructive behaviors. Also get rid of the "junk" in your life, both material and spiritual, with an emphasis on quality over quantity.
You are the Dark Goddess/God this month: be witness to destruction and death of the old and joyfully embrace it as a sign of imminent renewal. Your Phoenix is rising!
Expect the gentle, alluring vibe of a Libra New Moon to shine a (soft filtered) spotlight on the most meaningful relationships in your life. As the zodiac sign most associated with partnerships, balance and justice you'll be seeking harmony in your existing relationships.

A Virgo new moon may not exude sexiness or frolicking adventures but you’ll get things organized and be motivated to take on more efficient daily routines and healthier habits that ultimately serve to free you up for more fun and joyfulness.
Don't be too swept up, however, by all the competent, orderly energy as you'll miss out on an overlooked yet uber cool aspect of Virgo. Virgo is the ultimate helper and healer of the zodiac. As the only zodiac sign represented by a female, she is referred to as the High Priestess. This archetype's superpower lies not in earthly order but in her alignment with Divine order or the ability to make ideal visions of a more perfect world truly grounded and real.
Where can you dig within the microcosm of yourself to see where you can selflessly serve another? That is the true calling card Virgo hands you this New Moon.
Be prepared to add some of your own heat and fire to the sultry days of summer. Leo is a fire sign, which is all about passion, action and stepping into leadership.

Be prepared to open your arms and embrace Cancer crab's inherent need for security in the bosom of home, family and emotional security.
Cancer is ruled by the moon, the astronomical body most associated with our emotions and as a water sign, the element of... yes you guessed it...emotions, you may end up nicknaming this New Moon "crybaby". It's also a total solar eclipse so emotions will be magnified!
Before you pull out your biggest box of tissues, know that this new moon and the following month brings us together in caring circles and keeps us feeling safe and secure in our homes. It'll be a month of being doubly wrapped up in cozy emotional blankets, lots of love, and nourishing comfort food.
Mix Air and Mercury together and this is what you can expect from a Gemini New Moon. Gemini ruled by Mercury, the sign of communication, will bring out your talkative side and speaking your mind is the order of the day. The airiness of this sign, however, can leave you distracted and flitting from one thing to the next much like a child naturally does. So seek out instead the curious, spontaneous and playful traits of more youthful Gemini. Laugh a little and lighten up!
Those of you that love routine, shake it up this month and rock Gemini's need for change and adventure. You'll be pleasantly surprised when you do things a bit differently. Already love change and adventure? Tap into Gemini's mind genius and seek out people who can teach you more about the world. Who knows, the more you gather through asking and knowing, the more you might learn about yourself and your higher purpose.
Regardless of where you fall on the spontaneity scale, a Gemini New Moon will bring out the social butterfly in all of us. So enjoy a busy month of pitter pattering your way from one chitter chattery social gathering to the next. Summer barbecues anyone?
