The year’s first New Moon is happening on January 2nd. It will be giving a serious boost to our motivation levels, as we begin chasing down our 2022 goals.
This lunation is going to be all about tangible and practical plans that can be realized. It will also be supercharging our new intentions with determination, focus, and discipline.
In astrology, new moons mean new beginnings. It is believed to be the lunar phase that is most supportive of new projects and setting intentions.
That’s why this is a great time for new moon manifestation rituals. The 2022 January new moon will also rise in Capricorn. So, its spiritual meaning will be about building soul-nourishing and solid foundations for our aspirations.
This new moon will be bringing us the motivation needed to complete our to-do list for the New Year.
The New Moon’s Spiritual Meaning
Due to the New Moon rising within 48 hours of the New Year, the lunation’s astrological energy is perfectly aligned with the period’s focus on a new start.
The zodiac energy of Capricorn is ideal for this focus since it is all about being goal-oriented and efficient. However, it is extra special when the moon joins the sun in Capricorn right at the year’s start.
This year will ask us to set practical intentions as well as imbue us with the discipline needed to fulfill them.
To connect with the New Moon’s spiritual meaning, one must think of Capricorn’s significance in the zodiac. Earth signs, like Capricorn, have a mystical side on top of their association with money and work.
The ethereal sea-goat represents it, which can leave the shores of the earth and dip into watery spirituality with ease. As such, the sign has the knowledge of balancing existential exploration and worldly pursuits.
After knowing that, let yourself explore deep inside your soul to precisely identify the reasons behind your desires during the January New moon.
Tangible goals are very nice, but if your aspirations do not have a meaningful depth, then you can lack the stamina required to fulfill them in the long term.
Working With The Jan New Moon’s Energy
The new moon in December was also a solar eclipse, and eclipses are too chaotic for manifestation rituals. As such, the new moon in January will be the first one in almost 2 months that astrologically supports ritual work and intention-setting.
Since a lot of us have already started making plans for 2022, the timing of the New Moon is absolutely perfect. During this period, spend time focusing on the things that you wish to accomplish during 2022. Then begin to lay the foundations to reaching those goals.
If you have some big dreams, then make it easier by breaking them into realistic, attainable, smaller steps. The New Moon in Capricorn is encouraging practicality and efficiency. So avoid making your path to success something insurmountable.
Regardless of the New Year being a thing for you, this lunation’s spiritual meaning is making it a fabulous time for clarifying personal intentions. It is also ideal for aligning these intentions on the level of your soul.
January 1st may be the official beginning of the New Year, but it will just be one more day astrologically. However, January 2nd’s New Moon in Capricorn will be the actual boost of cosmic energy during this holiday weekend that is the true marker of a new start.
