Prior, Proper, Planning: First new Moon 2014


New Moon in Capricorn

January 1, 2014

By Maharani Rutan©

The New Year begins with a new beginning in 2014 by way of a void in the moon in Capricorn. This will give many of us fresh starts and new beginnings.  This awesome event will take place January 1, 2014 at approximately 6:15am EST and 3:15am PST. However, Venus is also quincunxing Uranus; therefore many may feel still that things are confusing and without any recourse.

The Earthy New Moon brings a time of brilliance and blossoming. It is a period of personal fulfillment, but also a time to search for the deeper meaning in what you’ve created. How can you integrate your vision into the world for the greater good of all?

The New Moon signals a time of developments. There is a desire to take action and begin something new; be it a small change in the way you approach 2014, the old way is not working.


This new moon will greatly affect Capricorns and those that have Capricorn in their chart.  This new moon at 23 degrees, give or take depending upon the orb, is really transforming Capricorn.  With the Sun, Pluto, and Venus being in Capricorn it is time for Capricorns, and those that have Capricorn in their chart, to look at what matters most in their life.  It not the time to dance but it is a time to dig in your heels and look at who are and how you are going to get where you are going.

This type of energy may be affecting Capricorns but Venus affects everyone.  As I stated in my previous post (read about it here), some friends may walk away, some friends may not even talk, and lovers may leave or be impossible to deal with. This does not mean you must say good bye with hurt feelings, it just means that it may not have been meant to be.  Like the song goes…”Lets just kiss and say good bye…” Be kind with your words between now and Mid February otherwise it will end.

The moon urges you to recognize and honor the significance of the “other” – other people, other ideas, and other values. Relationships are of great importance at this time, and you feel a need to share, merge, and partner, whether romantically or through other channels.


 You are called upon now to work toward triumphing balance – equilibrium of your inner nature and outer personality, steadiness of your need to take with your ability to contribute, and balance of your vital ideals with what is possible in the world.   Capricorn Moon sets us straight up the mountainside toward our highest goals. Dig in those hooves and get climbing! Reputation, success, go,go,go….. You can tackle anything. Love seriously, too.

This is the time to Reap, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on productiveness and prosperity.  A touch of subjectivity, personality, accomplishment, personal plans could have tendency to force the energy to act impulsively and emotionally.

The energy is perfect for respectability and dignity in all things – thus expressing emotions may be difficult.  Every situation becomes serious and every emotion that is present is needed to weigh the outcome of the words you may speak.   Leadership, ambition, practically, acknowledgement, achievements, and preserving relationships are the key to this new moon. You look to your mother for discipline and order, and may see her as a person of high status.


The moon in Capricorn shakes Saturn and pinches you to make sure you know where you are going.  It is time for material ambition and an awareness of work and duty.  In the search for status and financial security, people might become insensitive even unsympathetically cruel, but this is selfish necessity rather than animosity.

The Saturn influences of Capricorn cause pessimism or negativity to creep in.  However, Saturn is currently in Scorpio and waking up the mysterious people. Read more about it here. 

Generally, while the Moon is in Capricorn energy is sluggish.  It is time for diligently applying yourself to tasks while living solely in the present. The Earthy Capricorn Moon sets us straight up the mountainside toward our highest goals.


The moon in Capricorn is Determined, Somber, Strong-minded, Concrete, and Capricious. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships and success, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Capricorn moon is:

Om Sri Shanaishwarya Namaha

(OM Sri Shan aish shwarya Namaha)


The intention of this mantra is to guard, protect and fulfill needs.

It is my suggestion that you purchase a green candle and recite psalm 117 if you find the mantras too difficult.  Make sure you take the time to write down 10 aspirations and recite them every day. Make sure to word them to say “I can have…”



Many people have asked how often they should have a reading done by a psychic or a tarot reader.  In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle.  Every moon cycle represents a change that not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it may be necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometimes we have to let universe take its course.  When dealing with a tragic situation, it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible.

Please note that I am not an astrologer, nor do I claim to be. For further explanations as to how this moon will affect you directly I suggest you speak to my recommended astrologer Leslie Hale or my other recommended astrologers in my Group link page. 

Vedic readings are very unique, whereas the ground work for Vedic reading incorporates Vedic astrology, karma, dharma, and destiny to bring for a reading packed with information.  Vedic reading discourages the client to give too much information rather gives information for the client to make their own choices based upon every angle possible.  It brings forth information between action and reaction, perception and reasoning.  Additionally, it provides vital information bring forth the necessary evidence through choice and options available.  Whereas astrology microscopes a specific period in time.



The influence of this moon will affect many people and it is about making promises to yourself and how you will get where you are going.  It may not be solely codependent rather independent.  This moon will question who, what, and why something is the way it is and why they may or may need to be in your life.

Take it easy the next two weeks because Cancer full moon will surely bring all the emotions out.

Wishing you the most resourceful new moon.
