How The February 1 New Moon Will Affect You If You're A Capricorn

When you think of rituals and lessons that can be considered during the lunar cycle, you most likely think of full moons first. Everything from legends of supernatural creatures to anecdotes from E.R. nurses center around the power and energy of the full moon. But another phase of the cycle can be equally powerful, in an opposite way: the new moon (via Aiir). While full moons are all about the culmination and climax of building energies, new moons are the time to set intentions for what you want to use that mounting energy to create. This way, you can harvest the fruits of those seeds come the full moon. 


The upcoming new moon on February 1 takes place in Aquarius, encouraging us to take a reflective look at ourselves and the patterns and beliefs we hold (via Bustle). What is actively serving the outcomes we want, and what isn't?  This is a time to consider the bigger picture. Who do we want to be? What do we want our lives to look like, and what do we want them to mean? Big questions, we know. But depending on your sign, you can consider these big picture items in specific ways that might help you. If you're a Capricorn, here's what you should know.  

How a Capricorn can get the most out of this new moon

As a Capricorn, you are among the hardest-working and most driven signs in the zodiac (via Woman and Home). Unless you totally master something and are the very best at it, you feel you can still grown and learn and improve. Your career has great meaning for you, and you strive to be the best at what you do. This new moon, however, you are encouraged to consider your value outside of what you do for a paycheck. 


If your career is lucrative but doesn't feed your soul, this may be a good time to consider a shift or how you can get involved in causes that you care about. If you have a career that you do feel is spiritually worth your immense efforts, then this is a good time to consider if you feel you are being paid what you're worth (both in dollars and in appreciation and respect). You are a dedicated, passionate worker, and you deserve to be treated as such.
