The New Moon in Capricorn occurs this afternoon, Friday, January 11 at 2:44 pm EST (7:44 pm GMT), at 21 degrees. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth.

This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Capricorn) will highlight the earthy Capricorn qualities of drive and discipline, as well as tenth house themes of career and ambition. This New Moon period is the perfect time to set new goals for your career and your life. Are you looking for a new job? Or do you simply need to re-devote yourself to your current one? Perhaps your goals are more in keeping with personal health and wellness. Capricorn brings the discipline necessary to achieve the goals we set for ourselves. Keep in mind that Jupiter is retrograde until January 30, 2013; you may find yourself reflecting and re-evaluating your entire approach to your goals or plans to achieve them.
