Today’s New Moon in Capricorn: January 12, 2021 – Effects By House

capricorn mountain goatThe new moon in Capricorn takes place at 23 degrees, right around midnight tonight. You can check my new Transit Calendar for the exact time in your location.  As you can see below, the sun and moon are tightly conjunct Pluto, part of a larger cluster of planets.  This will be intense!

The new moon hits my chart so hard, I can see it being the death of me. I’m not trying to be morose or dramatic. This is just what comes to mind. I have been around a lot of (sudden) death lately. Random and traumatic. So I’m just telling you how this looks to me.

Setting my chart aside to consider the collective, this still looks like death to me. Someone or something significant dies. A public figure maybe?  Someone of something with status. I never write like this but I can’t help it. Look at it!

As for the individual, all those planets are likely to be contained in just one house in your chart. You can expect an impact in that area of life. It certainly won’t go unnoticed.

This does not mean it’s bad. Jupiter is involved here but jeez. I think you will notice!  If you don’t know how to find the house where the new moon falls, you can learn how here – Where Does The New Or Full Moon Fall..?

Today’s New Moon in Capricorn: January 12, 2021 – Effects By House — 60 Comments

  1. I don’t know , I guess it will fall in my 4th house . And in my solar return Pluto is exact at 23 degrees. Don’t want to repeat myself. It’s clear.

  2. It falls in my 1st house. Facing your fear, well. P.S What a lovely fluffy goat in the picture but she seems a bit scared too. Appropriate.

  3. It falls in my 12th house and my goal is to let go and let God guide me through these times. The New Moon hides your light, so, close your eyes and navigate by the senses and instincts.

  4. In my 1st house conjunct my Moon, 24 degrees and 45 minutes. My sister died on Dec 26th, 2020. She had Pluto opposite uranus in her 8th house with a Mars square uranus several days earlier. She was caring for my 90 yo father. My brother in law is now responsible for Dad’s care. My older Brother died Jan 2019.

  5. Maybe it’s the death of democracy. Humans are no longer equal in the eyes of the white god. And the white male regains his position as lord and master. That would make the death blood flow like crazy. People would be so happy in the slaughter, bowing to the white king, undulating in his unquestionable power.

  6. It will fall in my seventh house, trine my Venus at 21 Taurus in the tenth house… Am entering a painting of my niece into a prestigious competition on the 15th, which I am trying to finish under low light wintry conditions… I hope this is a good sign and it gets in! And I sincerely hope nothing and nobody dies except that which should naturally dissolve anyway…

    • Had news of two friends who both have stage 1V
      Cancer and a job opportunity has come up , I have my moon Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in the 8th ..

  7. This one is hitting my DC and squaring my natal mars.
    I’ve already been in a process of severing some bonds (Pluto in my 7th). Cross fingers, it all comes to an end without accident or cruelty involved. At the same time – just recovered myself from an accident with heavy fracture. I‘ll certainly keep my eyes open, when I go out there. Thanks for this, Elsa!

  8. Oh gosh, not again… I had the Pluto-Saturn conjunction conjunct my natal Saturn last January, and now this new moon (with Pluto) is going to be conjunct my natal Saturn, trine my Moon. Please tell me this is not a bad thing? It’s in my 5th house, which ends at 29 degrees Capricorn, so hopefully that helps? I just don’t think I can take anything close to a repeat of what happened last January… -_-

  9. Oh no, we Are having earthquake after earthquake in Croatia and I can not take it anymore. Maybe we try to flee outside of the city before the 12th. The first one was in march on the Full moon so maybe this will End the series. We had too Many deaths as it is with covid and earthquake

      • Maja, that was my first thought. Just not another earthquake, I also can’t take it anymore. But after reading about the clash between Saturn and Uranus this year, I’m no longer optimistic that this will stop anytime soon.

        • The thing is, not the whole world is affected by earthquakes so I don’t know which date to take for Croatia, what Would be the chart for our country? I remember reading somewhere we have a strong capricorn in our chart.

          • I would go with 25. 6. 1991. But if we talk about the date when we were globally accepted as an independent country the date would be 15. 1. 1992.

  10. This New moon will occur in my 5 house but Inconjuct my Rising in Leo@ 24 and Fortuna @ 23. Then Square my Venus in Libra 2nd H @ 24.Can someone tell me how TOUGH it will be for me?

  11. This is in my daughter’s first house and will directly hit my daughter’s Natal 23 degree Cap ascendant opposite her Natal 23 degree Cancer sun. Transiting Mars is squaring both. Feeling a bit concerned. Our charts are similar and it falls in my 12th house opposite my Natal 22 degree Cancer sun/cancer Leo stellium.

  12. Elsa, my cardiac stent surgery set for the full moon of Dec. 30 has moved to the 13th, just after the new moon! (They have to bring my BP down first.) Sudden death? Yikes? It’s 3rd house though… I hope it’s a fresh start in the new moon but all that Saturn Pluto in the house of my natal full moon t-square Neptune is scary.

  13. The New moon is on my Birthday! It falls in my 7th House. I have a packed 8th House also with Pluto, Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter (which is 23 degs natal), I have no idea what this will mean…

  14. Falls in my 8th but sextile my MC and Saturn in Pisces ♓️ hope no deaths my dad hasn’t been to good but Uranus is square my moon in 8th so worried more for my mum

  15. This New Moon occurred in my Second House – Bi-quintiles my Sun, Pluto and Chiron. Bi-quintles are an expression of unique creative ability to link two thinks together. Also an urgency to spread an idea or style. I hope this is more fun than death related. I’ve had enough of that!

    @Elsa I’ll keep you in my prayers. I hope the outcome is not as bad as you portend.

  16. Conjunct my moon 🌝 in second house
    Maybe this is a grand re start from all the shit that just left Pluto and he was alone until now

  17. It will fall in my 10th house. I have been in a new job since July 2020 so I hope I’ll be fine! I’m in a place however where recent events can result in many power changes so hopefully it won’t effect me directly. Also, my natal moon in Virgo is at 23 degrees–please help me understand any impacts.

  18. This falls in my 12th, trine my natal moon and sextile Venus. I have had the big guys through the 12th for donkeys and still got 12th house son mars mercury mc by progression for YEARS. Don’t believe in god or great spirit anymore despite being a trained medicine woman, thats a recent thing. Don’t believe in anything but the love I feel and see in the world and that everything required of me is in front of me, so I do it. This massive focus on the 12th actually is freeing me from anything that is not me. I love the 12th house. In the silence I have lost all the ties that bind and now that Saturn and Jupiter have crossed into the first and Venus same by progression, life is far simpler and very beautiful. I am free, and yes it was tough as fuck, but it all falls off you in the end and this world is a stunning place to be alive in. Much love guys, don’t fear a thing, you have all you need within and around you. X

  19. 2nd house. Squares my natal Chiron at 23 Aries. I have a Capricorn moon. I just try to keep my head down and press on doing what I have to do. “Recover from trauma and regain your self-esteem.” I don’t feel like I’ve lost self-esteem. It ebbs and flows but on the whole I think I have good self-esteem. So how long do the effects of the new moon last? Six months? Until the full moon in Capricorn when the sun is in Cancer?

  20. I have this concentration in my 4th House. This is all going to oppose my natal Black Moon Lilith in the 10th House. So this is going to be interesting. Wonder how this is gonna turn out…

    • I had my last meeting for therapy about dealing with some trauma triggered by the quarantine. The therapist mentioned that I seem to be doing better and I feel like I am. So that’s how this has affected me so far.

  21. It’s all happening in my 8th house, exactly trine my natal Pluto in my 4th. I’m banking on it being the death of the old version of me and the rebirth of a new version of me. I like Libra Noir’s suggestion of death = transformation. I’m not afraid of doing the hard work to get there.
    I’m also hoping some inheritance (8H) flowing my way so I can stay in my current home (4H)
    Blessings to all as we go through this xx

  22. I generally don’t like to bring up politics on this site, but it’s expected that the president will be impeached as the new moon and Pluto oppose his Saturn at 23 Cancer. As Elsa said, “Someone or something significant dies. A public figure maybe? Someone or something with status.”

    As for me, the planets conjoin my Jupiter at 24 Cap in the 4th house. Too much home confinement during the pandemic!

  23. I want to learn more of me and my houses trying to get a little more time out of these tiny short days; I have one direction,it’s starts inside me,
    To know ,believe and understand
    I am much better today than any other part of my life, today is real
    There are countless memories,but today is real and I can fly ahead with this. I am ok, I have made giant steps
    From all that kept me hostage under
    The stairs.Thank God for the stars

  24. This new moon, combined with the Pluto transit of key planets in my chart, has brought dopplegangers from the past back into my life, not necessarily in a welcome way, all within a day or two…Quite amazing!
