Hold on to your horses as this December we can anticipate a New Moon in Capricorn!
Actually, perhaps the term “hold on” is incorrect. A more appropriate term would be “slow down.” Capricorn is the sign of slowing down, grounding oneself and utilizing responsibility. It is known as the most serious sign of the zodiac; practical, responsible and diligent.
To some more flighty types, the sign of Capricorn can appear dull. But this is an unfair analysis, especially if you have experienced the frustration of flightiness, disorganization or unreliability, whether in yourself or in others. With Capricorn, we know we can get things done. We know we can put our heads down, focus on the task at hand and actually get it completed. Everybody needs a little Capricorn in their life.
As previously mentioned, Capricorn is very much the sign of grounding. It’s about coming down to the real, tangible world and producing real, tangible results. It is a sign of tradition, which is what makes it so interesting when it falls into a New Moon, which is all about new beginnings.
When you mix the old with the new, you can achieve some truly spectacular results! The New Moon in Capricorn provides us with an abundance of opportunity, if we only know how to harness it!

- Card 3: How can I make the most of this New Moon?
- Card 4: The outcome of my efforts
Below is an example reading for you to model your own on!
Card 1: Queen of Pentacles
This is a clear card for what I need to focus on during this new moon. The Queen of Pentacles is a card of all things physical – health, wealth and anything on the physical plane. I would read this as me, and interpret it as saying that it is good for me to focus on my physical body.
Card 2: 7 of Cups
Usually, this is a card of daydreaming and fantasizing, but in this context, I would view the 7 of Cups as a card of procrastination! While the 7 of Cups is a card of dreaming big, this is the card that stands as an obstacle – so it may indicate that my health has taken a downturn due to procrastination – too much dreaming, not enough movement.
Card 3: 8 of Pentacles
The 8 of Pentacles suggests working hard in order to achieve real, tangible results. As the card that represents how to make the most of this new moon, I interpret it to mean that I should work diligently on my health. This can include studying various exercise techniques and exploring a range of health options including food and possibly natural supplements. It indicates formulating a routine for my health regime – the 8 of Pentacles is a card for long-term results, so this card urges a steady plan for dealing with my health.
Card 4: The Sun
The Sun – a card of joy and accomplishment! This is the card to represent the outcome of my efforts. I am presuming that it shows what will happen if I choose to take the advice of the 8 of Pentacles and work hard on my body and maintaining my health. The Sun indicates happiness and success. But of course, the future is not set in stone. If I choose to do nothing and ignore the 8 of Pentacles, it is highly unlikely the Sun would turn out in this position. The Tarot card meanings can change depending on our actions and the choices we make.
This New Moon in Capricorn is a time for hard work and dedication and can certainly yield us some spectacular results if we are prepared to work hard.
