January 6 — New Moon in Capricorn : As its name suggests, new moons signify the start of a new cycle, so think of it as a fresh start.

When the moon is in Capricorn, this does not mean the start of Capricorn season, but rather simply the sign in which the moon is currently transiting through.

Solar eclipses can leave us feeling energetically drained. Scientifically, a solar eclipse is when the moon's shadow blocks the sun. So while they're cool to watch, if you view the sun as a sacred source of power, it's often safest to lay low during solar eclipses considering the huge power of what's taking place.

During the period in which the full moon moves through bold Leo, perform a ritual or meditation to boost your self-confidence. January 21 — Total Lunar Eclipse : During a total lunar eclipse , the earth passes directly between the sun and moon, and the moon goes into shadow.
Eclipses shake things up and sometimes force outcomes that were meant to be like breakups or career changes. Always expect the unexpected during an eclipse, so as this occurs on the same day as the full moon, stick with a low-risk meditation for self-confidence.
