Moon Sign Calendar New Moon is One to Watch

It seems not everyone was able to follow the moon sign calendar and let the resistance go last week with the Jan 6 Last Quarter waning moon and had to demonstrate their strong reactions in public.

  • Jan 12 – New Moon
  • Jan 20 – First Quarter
  • Jan 28 – Full Moon
  • Jan 30 – Mercury Retrograde

If you’ve felt a shift of feelings after the holiday, you might be sensitive to Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn moving into new territories.

  • Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn to Aquarius
  • Venus to Capricorn
  • Mars to Taurus

These changes can spark a new perspective for New Year’s Resolutions. Some hope is welcome now.

This week Mars square Saturn Jan 12-13 calls out for patience in the face of frustrations. This square also occurred last Aug 24, 2020 and Sep 29, 2020.

Keep alert and stay safe.


 As Jack Trainer (Harrison Ford) said in the movie Working Girl, “the players may have changed, but the game remains the same.”Moon Sign Calendar New Moon Riding Moon Cycles

The moon sign calendar and planetary orbits may change, but the cycle of the moon begins again as it always does with the New Moon.

Give yourself a break if you haven’t started on a long list of self-improvement tasks already. The moon cycle supports a better start this week as the phase changes.

It’s time to freshen up an intention for the cycle.

At the very least note how your internal experience is different from last week compared to this week.

The New Moon phase is as powerful as the Full Moon. The key is to infuse the intention with present time emotions. Summon up the feeling of having it now, today, right here. Naming the desire to happen far into the future keeps it out of reach.

The brain likes to fill in the blanks. How about this one, “I am successful with ___, because I ____.”


Capricorn in the moon sign calendar is disciplined and practical and an excellent influence for planning ahead. Consider long term values and traditions and the physical methods to achieve new goals.

But watch for losing the heart or worrying which is another trait of Capricorn.

Capricorn is the Earth element that favors working the details in the material world.
