On December 25/26th we are hit with a powerful New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Conjunct with Jupiter, this marks a day of serious good fortune. While Eclipses aren’t a time of planting new seeds, but New Moons are and so the energy is a bit confusing with where to go, what to start, and what to plan. This is a day of expecting miracles to help push old projects to completion, in finalizing what we have worked on throughout 2019, so to make a clean slate for 2020. Consider this your Christmas present from the cosmos, bringing good tidings and cheer!
When the Moon is in Capricorn, it is at it’s most organized and focused on practicality. Business-minded Capricorn puts a major emphasis on our goals for the future, making them all-important and to take responsibility seriously in how we act towards the things we want.
The energies from this celestial event comes in great timing so to take those New Year’s Resolutions seriously in considering where we need more structure in areas of our lives that are scattered and disruptive.
We need more rules, guidelines, and a solid plan of action to put into play. We cannot reach for the goals we treasure if we are surrounded by chaos or take part in lifestyle activities that cater to the mess around us. Self-improvement is the name and game of this New Moon & Solar Eclipse, as this will lead to the improvement we need within our environment as well. It all starts with you.
A Solar Eclipse happens when the Sun, Moon, and the Earth are perfectly aligned, allowing the moon to cast a shadow onto the Earth, blocking the Sun’s light. Ancients believed this was a time of doom, or quiet contemplation as the Sun was always deemed as their divine protector and bringer of life, and the darkness of night was to be feared, and so an Eclipse often meant that evil was over-powering the divine. This was when sacrifices were made to appease their angry Gods. Today, thanks to Science, we now know that this is an occurrence that happens because of the celestial bodies in their orbit around the solar system.
Tarot Reading for the New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn
IV the Emperor
Card is from the Wild Unknown Tarot
I love how there is a Solar Eclipse on this card’s image. It totally aligns with its meaning and the artist’s interpretation.
The Emperor says it is time to act – while the Eclipse energies call for quiet contemplation, this is where we consider what actions we must put forth, where are next steps should be, and what is the best way to go about the goals and desires we hold dear to our heart.
You probably already have that dream board made and have carefully put together a solid to-do list for the next year to come. Rather than sitting and imagining what if – what if you actually started acting upon those things, it is time to start planning those steps. The opportunities you desire will not just fall into your lap; you must work for them and bring them to life. Only YOU can make your dreams come true.
This is also a time to understand your role in the lives of others, and your business, in how your actions affect others around you. You have to take on responsibility for what you do, in understanding that the even the smallest of actions on your part play a major part in the lives of others. It is time to stand up on that podium and to lead by example.

Time to collaborate.
While you are so fiercely independent, Aries, and you prefer to work on your own, you still serve as a valuable team player, that is when you find the right team. The New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn tears the masks off some of your so-called friends or connections, and reveals how truly toxic they are to you, and how their influence is not serving your highest good. It is time to branch out and find a better tribe, Aries, one that caters to your growth and higher path.
You see clearly now.
The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse gives a powerful boost to your intuition. You have been harboring so many feelings lately, and much of these are gut feelings of what is about to take place. While it may be things you fear, you need to consider a game plan of how to go about these events taking place and consider these fearful gut feelings to be predictions allowing for you to get a head start and fair warning.
Be generous of spirit.
The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse is hitting you pretty hard, Gemini, but it isn’t anything bad – you are being led towards a more giving path, a path of showcasing others what you have to offer which in turn helps them succeed and also trickles back down to you in terms of good fortune for your good deeds. This is a time for you to pay it forward, and to watch in awe at how your gift keeps circling around to others and when it comes back to you, it has grown in size from all of the gratitude and grace it was received with by others.
Watch and wait.
Don’t rush into a decision just yet, Cancer, and allow things to settle down first. You are a bit misguided by your emotions right now and need to find a sense of grounding. Observe, a bit more detached, and then cast your judgement with a different perspective intact. The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse is here to grant you a different view on a situation that has been bothering you for some time now, and this new perspective may help you turn things around for the better.
Time for a deep dive.
The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse hits you heavily with those cosmic downloads. You feel an inner calling to dive deep within your soul and to connect with your higher self. You are noble, Leo, and you have an expansive spirit that is felt by many when you are connected to source and act as its voice box and use your vessel to perform its miracles. You are being called for a higher purpose. Leo, allow spirit to move through you.
Watch your words
A lot of things said in the state of anger can do far more damage than you realize. You might not be feeling like your best self, Virgo, and if you’re not careful you could end up saying something out of sorts which may hurt someone you care about, and change the quality of your relationship with them in the long run. Even though you often speak up when you want someone to do better for themselves, sometimes your criticism isn’t taken as constructive. Bite your tongue, Virgo, and if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Act as if.
As they say, if you can’t beat them – join them… This means that you have been acting as a door mat to others who have firm boundaries in what they would do for you in return. You have to adapt to this quality and start drawing the line in what you will also do for others. The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse is all about revealing the harsh truth of how not everyone has the best intentions for you and are just taking what you offer as a handout. Put your hand away and start giving to yourself.
Time for a deep dive.
The New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn brings you closer to your soul – while you are a sign which is very spiritual and spirit-oriented, you feel it heavy with this New Moon. You may receive some intense cosmic downloads which have you searching inward for a deeper connection with Source and your spirit.
Scarab Beetle Spirit
Magic works through you.
YOU are the most powerful tool you own when it comes to conducting any ritual or magical wish. Your intentions and powerful mind create and shape your reality, allowing for your greatest dreams to come true, and if you aren’t careful or practice a sense of mindfulness, so can your nightmares… The New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn reminds you of the power you encompass within, and how to use it.
Time to let go.
The New Moon & Solar Eclipse are working heavily on you, placing your sign in the spotlight. Letting go is never easy, especially when you have invested so much of yourself into a cause that seems to have been lost. You don’t do so well with failure and hate to have to throw in the towel. But it seems that you need to change your sense of direction towards higher goals that are better for you, than this ever was to begin with.
Spirit has your back.
If you weren’t afraid, what could you do? Fear is a liar that causes you to miss out on valuable opportunities and to stand still when you need to instead move forward. The Capricorn New Moon & Solar Eclipse reminds you that you have a massive team of not just your spiritual guides and protectors, but of close friends and family that all wants to see you achieve what you desire the most.
Take a leap of faith.
An amazing opportunity is coming your way, Pisces, and it might seem that it is a shot in the dark. As you weigh the good and the bad about this situation, you might find yourself stumped on what to do. You don’t want to miss out on this, but you also don’t want to go in blindly. While taking a leap of faith might not seem that practical, you have to understand that sometimes dreams come true only when you take that shot in the dark and go in with your eyes closed. So, take a deep breath, Pisces, and make the jump.
You have all probably seen the flood of memes and posts from fellow spiritualists about how the Full Moon energy is major with Twin Flames because of the repeated number sequence of 12, and because it is in Gemini, the sign of the Twins. The Full Moon is on December 12th (12/12) at 12:12 am EST. Sure, different time zones call for different times, and also dates (some may experience the Full Moon on 12/11), that it is in it’s full beauty, but, the synchronicity around it remains the same – however – it does go a lot further than just Twin Flames.
Typically, the last Full Moon of the year is potent with releasing energies that we do not want to take with us into the following year. This Full Moon is a bit different and extremely positive, as it offers a massive boost of energy, enthusiasm, and optimism into the goals we wish to bring into 2020.
The main downside to this celestial event, is that when the Moon is in Gemini, things can get a bit scattered and fickle. We are offered many different opportunities, have many projects going on, or we just don’t know where to start with a project because of the different avenues we can take. Thanks to Jupiter in Capricorn, we can expect a more focused influence to help navigate through the mess and bring order to some of the chaos.
There is also a tendency to want two – at least two – of everything. This can be troubling when doing some holiday shopping with that one for me, one for you, mindset. Although our generous nature is peaked during this time, we have to be mindful of not being overly zealous and bringing in the new year with financial debt that could have been avoided with more discipline. The Sagittarius Sun opposes the moon but puts a major emphasis on the notion of too much. By all means, spoil your loved ones, but just be careful and stick to your budget.
This Full Moon is a wonderful time to reconnect with old friends and to soak in that Holiday Spirit by bringing in others to share the cheer, making the holiday season more meaningful with that sense of togetherness.
This is also a great Moon to focus on your spiritual path, to commit to a path and to follow it to completion. This also serves as a wonderful time for spiritualists, gurus, and psychics as it helps brings the unconscious, conscious. So, you can definitely count on those cosmic downloads to hit you, like a ton of light bulbs all turning on at the same time. This is where things might also get a bit tricky, with having an abundance of different routes to take on an idea, as well as a refreshed mindset after healing from an old defense-mechanism which kept your mind closed to opportunities you can now see.
This Full Moon is all about that bounce-back. So brush yourself off from all of that shadow work you have been doing for the past few months and go out into the World as a renewed and much stronger, brighter, and loving version of yourself.

Thanks to Neptune going direct recently and Jupiter moving into Capricorn, we can expect results, and we can expect to see them quickly. This is a time where our intentions are starting to take form and we get to realize our efforts.
The Full Moon in Gemini gifts us with a boost of energy that is both encouraging and also inspiring, offering us the drive to tackle down those goals and formulate a game plan that can make things happen a lot quicker than we had thought.
Shortcuts may be plenty around this time, and while you might be in the mindset to take them, you do need to be careful as sometimes a shortcut can serve as a dead end rather than a straight line to our destination compared to the rocky mountains we have to trail through.
This is also a time of working with others, as a team or a group, and finding that you work well together and are able to quickly reap in the rewards for your efforts a lot quicker than when working on your own. Even if you are working on your own rather than with a team, or you are single without a partner, you will still find that this Full Moon surges you with confidence and makes you more attractive to others than usual – as they take notice of your vibe while you immerse yourself into projects you truly love and enjoy, and also how beautiful your creations and hard-work is.

Know your worth
The Full Moon in Gemini wants to remind you of how worthy you are – and not just to others, but also in how you care for yourself as well, Aries.

The Full Moon shines the spotlight on your specialness and wants you to start celebrating the reasons you have to take better care of yourself, so that others in turn will start to do so as well.
White Raven Spirit

The Gemini Full Moon has you in the spotlight and you are getting hit heavy with all of the cosmic downloads.

Spirit is here to guide you towards a fresh look at things, so you can start to use your energy towards effective solutions.
Bring a gentle touch.
The Gemini Full Moon touches your voice and offers it the gentleness and precision needed in order to speak up about something that touches your heart. Leo, you have something important to say, and you worry about how it will be received by others – when you come from the heart, and you consider the tone of your voice and the words you choose carefully, then what you have to say will be heard and respected.
Co-create with Spirit
The Full Moon in Gemini wants to remind you of the power of your mind and when you put it towards good use in having faith for receiving the things that you want. When you are shrouded in doubt, you will miss opportunities that are available to help you achieve the things you desire. You need to change your perspective around from can’t, to can.
This and that are true.
Libra, you have a gift in seeing the light and the darkness in just about every situation. Some say that you are indecisive and that it is your negative quality in being so, however, it is actually a gift to see both sides of a scenario. The Gemini Full Moon emphasizes your gift of duality, in showing you two different sides of a story so that you can bring them together as one.
Give with gratitude and grace.
The Full Moon in Gemini is a gift in terms of resolving old conflicts with friends, family, and within your romantic relationship. While things had been rocky in the past, you are gifted with new eyes to see the other side of the situation, which allows for forgiveness and understanding to shine through.
Trust the great mystery.
While some things you might not have a good indication of what is really going on, you have to hold to faith that everything will turn out for the positive. The Gemini Full Moon may oppose you, but it fuels your optimism and sense of adventure, in moving forward on goals. You don’t need to know all of the answers right now, but even with that, you are still optimistic about the unknown.
Love is all around.
The Full Moon in Gemini reminds you that you are loved. Even if you don’t feel it, Capricorn, you need to look again and see that you have an army of loved ones by your side, ready to help you where you need it. There has been a lot of strife within your life recently, which may have you believing that you are all alone, but in reality, you are never alone.
Use your mind wisely.
You know that saying, “when pigs fly”? It is typically said when there is a doubtful outlook on a situation, or a goal seems too far out there to reach. Well... what if it wasn’t that far out there? The Gemini Full Moon inspires you with a sense of optimism, in reminding you that you hold the power within your mind to direct it towards achieving a treasured goal.
Turn knowledge into wisdom.
You learn and your grow, Pisces. The Gemini Full Moon has you integrating recent lessons you have learned and beckons you to transform this knowledge into wisdom. Those mistakes you had made in the past, or those connections that proved to be toxic all happened for a divine reason, and that was for your sake of growth and maturity during your emotional and spiritual evolution.
