New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Capricorn: a Christmas Miracle

The new moon solar eclipse in Capricorn—happening on December 25, 2019 at 9:13 pm PT—is exciting and sweet. This lunation heralds the beginning of better times, where you’ll feel more in touch with your soul and at peace with your life.

But this “new beginning” is actually something that’s been brewing since April 2019, or possibly even longer. At this new moon solar eclipse in Capricorn, your work from these past few months and years is finally complete—ready for the next chapter in your life.

And with Jupiter (planet of luck) being conjunct with both the sun and moon in Capricorn, you’ll also be feeling enough hope and optimism to actually believe that you can do anything. This may bring exciting conversations about what you’ve done all year and what’s next. It may also help you overcome (or make sense of) old wounds or insecurities from the past that have brought you down. This is a gift in its own right this holiday season.

Now is the time to get excited about 2020 which, according to numerology, is the year of building foundations. Here’s what each sign should expect this new moon.
