Welcome to the December 2022 new moon! This momentous astrological event marks the last new moon of the year and is a time for reflection, planning, and celebration. It’s a time to look ahead to the future and ponder what the new moon will bring. Astrologically, the new moon symbolizes a time of renewal, growth, and self-reflection. Combined with the zodiac sign it falls in, this is a great opportunity to explore different ways to make the most of this special time of the year. Keep reading to learn what the new moon has in store for us!
Not lighting up the sky on December 23rd, the last new moon of the 2022 year has arrived. It's falling in the sign of Capricorn this year. This should add a nice touch of focus, productivity, and drive to the new year season.
The new year, 2023, is right around the bend. In just a mere 8 days, we'll be setting our sights on the year ahead and leaving the events of 2022 in the past. This is a great time to clear out the clutter in your life. Mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially...you get the point.
In a mental and emotional way, you can practice letting go of that which no longer serves you. Metaphorically pack up, ship off, and do not list a return address for all of your emotional baggage this year. It's time to leave whatever was eating at you in 2022. The new year is not the time or place to carry over all wounds. It's a fresh start.
Physically, aim to take better care of yourself. No matter how hard you work out, how healthy you eat, how often you meditate or journal-we could all do a little better at taking care of ourselves. In the new year, set a goal to go to the gym more or be more active. Taking care of yourself can also look like setting the goal of resting more without feeling guilty or getting more sleep at night. Do what you need to take better care of yourself.
Financially, unsubscribe from all of those subscriptions you don't use. This really doesn't have anything to do with the new moon energy, it's just a good idea to do it every once in awhile. I saved myself roughly $13 by canceling two subscriptions I never used. It adds up. If I had paid that for all of 2023 and didn't use it, I would have spent $156 by the end of the year. I can think of a lot of other ways I'd like to spend that money. Do yourself a favor and cancel those subs.
Back to the new moon vibes: Capricorn is known for being a bit stoic and cynical. A glass half empty kind of person. They're typically very career, money, and goal oriented people and have a hard time seeing the steps it takes to reach those goals-only seeing and wanting the success at the end of it. Capricorns can become a bit impatient and moody when things don't work out right away but will keep their emotions from getting too close to the surface. What does this mean for the new moon?
Because this new moon falls so close to the holidays we can expect to feel a bit impatient or moody if things don't happen fast enough or in the way we planned. Cue the delay in travel plans everywhere due to winter weather and not wanting to wait to open gifts. As you set your sights on the new year ahead, you may be feeling particularly focused and driven to make goals and stay organized to reach them. Your goal planning will be zoned in right now so start making your 2023 plans now! You may also be thinking more of the future and saving money. A new year is a great time to set up a new savings plan. Just be aware of making clear and concise steps that you can follow to reach those goals.
As this new moon falls on a Friday, it's a great way to start off the holiday weekend with a little determination. Get things kicked into gear and get ready for 2023. Have a wonderful holiday season and I'll see you next year!
