The January Capricorn New Moon Ignites Your New Year’s Resolutions

The January 11 Capricorn new moon is the first of the year, and it brings high-achieving energy to your 2024 vision. Here’s how to set benchmarks that challenge and inspire you, elevate your image, connect you to mentors, and make long-term plans.

Like a strong tailwind, a Capricorn new moon accelerates your plans.

Since Capricorn is the sign of structure, the January 11 lunation could be the beginning of a powerful planning phase that bears fruit by the corresponding Capricorn full moon–or moons, there are two of them this year, on June 21 and July 21. (There’s also a second Capricorn new moon in 2024, the last new moon of the year, on December 30!)

Efficiency is the name of the game, but you know what’s not? Wearing struggle like a merit badge. What can you delegate and outsource to get the job done? Visualize where you’d like your career to be six months from now. Can’t-stop-won’t-stop Capricorn loves the hustle, but this potent new moon helps you radar in on work that’s worthy of your time and energy.

Love and the Capricorn new moon: Romance resolutions

Set your clocks for a new chapter in bonding. The Capricorn new moon kicks off a fresh six-month cycle. With the Sun and Mars already settled in the Sea Goat’s suite (along with seductive Pluto), you’ve no doubt been pondering the future of your love life.

Tap into the planning powers of this new moon and write down your relationship and romance resolutions for the next six months. Make them measurable and actionable. For example: “I will swipe right on a minimum of one person a day for the rest of the year,” or, “I will coordinate a weekly date night on the shared calendar before January 1.” While actions like these are the opposite of spontaneous, they provide a necessary structure to keep you in Cupid’s court!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your 2024 empire-building plan kicks off January 11 with a Capricorn new moon in your tenth house of success. Spend time visualizing yourself at the top of your game, whatever that may look like for you.

While finding joy in your work is more important than a bloated bank account, don’t underestimate your worth. Is it time to raise your rates or polish up your skill set so you can command more cash? Money is a resource, not the root of all evil: it’s how you use it that counts. Send out a few prospecting emails or take a few hours to polish up a pitch or presentation that you’ll make over the coming two weeks. Read more Aries horoscopes.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might be a creature of habit, but that’s no excuse to limit your expansion. The first new moon of 2024 lands in Capricorn on January 11, powering up your horizon-broadening ninth house. Which begs the question, Bull: How would you like to grow in the year ahead? And in what area of life? Whether you’re hunting for a dream home or for a life partner (or something equally grand), there’s one big rule to follow under this lunar lift: Start the search anywhere BUT the usual places! Read more Taurus horoscopes.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The January 11 Capricorn new moon in your seductive, security-seeking eighth house revs your engines in two ways:

First, it awakens your inner minx, so pack away (or burn!) those flannel PJs and trade up for some luxurious loungewear. When you look good, you feel good—and you’re a lot more receptive to other people’s attention.

Second, this new moon arouses your inner investor. Start thinking about passive-income streams, mutual funds and other ways to grow your wealth, like your own startup. It takes money to make money, and you could see the first signs of reward by the corresponding full moon six months from now. Read more Gemini horoscopes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Love is a two-way street, Cancer, and wouldn’t it be awesome if you always got back what you put in? The January 11 Capricorn new moon in your house of committed partnerships begins your search for lasting, fulfilling love in earnest. But it may require you to open up to a totally new type. Remember that opposites DO attract. Coupled? Co-creation is the name of the game, so consciously seek different ways that you and your sweetie can work together. That might even involve starting a business that plays to your individual strengths! Read more Cancer horoscopes.

Leo (July 23-August 22) 

Brew the matcha and unroll your yoga mat. Self-care is the name of the game as the Capricorn new moon activates your healthy-living house. Map out a sustainable fitness strategy for yourself—one that works with your current schedule and won’t feel like torture. If you can’t seem to make it to the 90-minute classes, “settle” for 60, or schedule a session with a trainer if you struggle to stay motivated. Start collecting recipes for plant-based and protein-rich meals that will keep you warm through the winter. How about starting each day with a detoxifying turmeric apple cider vinegar shot? Read more Leo horoscopes.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Curtain’s up! As the new moon in Capricorn lands in your flamboyant fifth house, begin plotting the ways you’ll nab the spotlight over the next six months. For some Virgos, that may involve rebranding your social media or giving your wardrobe a maximalist refresh. And whose heart will you steal along the way? Cupid shoots a few bonus arrows your way, giving you the courage to take a bigger step in the game of love, like getting engaged, making babies or even letting go of a crush who can’t fully commit. Read more Virgo horoscopes.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Bring on the wallpaper samples, art prints and colorful tea kettles! Your nesting instincts awaken as the Capricorn new moon lights a fire in the hearth of your domestic fourth house. After a long, hard year, spruce up your space and make it feel more like the 2024 version of you!

Is a move at the top of your resolution list? Set up those Zillow alerts and ask friends if they’ve heard of any open units in their buildings. You could be filling out an application and renting a U-Haul before the month is through. Pro tip: Inspect with care and check out the property in the day AND at night to make sure you feel safe coming and going 24/7. Read more Libra horoscopes.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

The January 11 new moon in Capricorn activates your “locally grown” third house. Consider this your cue to connect to your community. Rather than shopping chain stores for everything, patronize the mom-and-pops. Could you volunteer as a tutor for kids or set up a sharing model for the people in your building? Since this new moon governs transportation, take some test spins at the car dealership. Eco-conscious Scorpios might even try an electric car or bike for getting around town. Read more Scorpio horoscopes.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Money changes everything, Sagittarius, but that doesn’t have to be a downer. The Capricorn new moon whirs through your financially savvy second house. Read the fine print on your bank and credit card statements and make sure your utility bills don’t contain any excessive (or unnecessary) charges. If you aren’t thrilled with your current cash balance, this lunar lift can bring a proactive boost. Spruce up your resume, bio and LinkedIn profile and start the hunt for more gainful employment. Entrepreneurial Archers: Adjust your rates and offerings for the 2024 market. Read more Sagittarius horoscopes.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

This new moon can bring spiritual awakenings, violet-light realizations and bursts of creative brilliance. Download a 20-minute meditation or sign up for a gentle yoga class. Your intuition is at its loudest when you quiet the chatter in your mind.

Brace yourself: With this moon falling in your twelfth house of transitions, you may realize that you’ve outgrown an aspect of your life that you never thought you’d tire of, Aquarius. Don’t resist your own evolution, even if letting go makes you feel sad. Read more Aquarius horoscopes.
