The new year brings all sorts of new beginnings, and the fresh lunar cycle that kicks off on January 2021 new moon is one of the most mystical. This motivating lunation rises on January 12 (or just after midnight on January 13, if you're on eastern time). Everyone can harness the powerful vibe of this lunar reset, but if you're one of the zodiac signs the January 2021 new moon will affect the least, then it'll be even easier to roll with the lunar flow.
January's new moon takes place in the no-nonsense sign of Capricorn, the cardinal earth sign, which gives this lunation a serious, hardworking tone that's perfect for launching your New Year's intentions off the ground. We'll be inspired to create concrete plans for reaching our goals and will feel extra focused on matters of financial security and work in general — so use the vibe to your advantage and make some career-oriented power moves. It's an ideal time to begin new professional projects or get your finances organized.
But remember, the current Capricorn season energy prioritizes long-term successes above overnight shortcuts, so this month's new moon inspires us to put in the work necessary to build a solid foundation for our future. If you're one of the zodiac signs least affected by the January 2021 new moon, then you'll have an easy breezy time making the most of this lunation.
