Three zodiac signs can make their dreams come true during January's new moon

Welcome to the first new moon of the year! It arrives in responsible Capricorn on January 11, 2024 at 6:57 AM ET (3:57 AM PT), giving everyone a chance to get back on track with things. Some signs are least affected by the January New Moon, which means they will feel supported by those around them in achieving their goals.

Astrologically speaking, both the full moon and the new moon have powerful energies. New moons remind us to pause and provide opportunities for change. This is especially true for this new moon because it arrives on January 11, the 111th portal in numerology, which signals a new beginning.

The new moon's natural return isn't the only reset happening right now. "The Sun and Moon square the North Node in Aries, so blessings require action on our part," says astrologer Tameri Ater. In order to reap the rewards of the universe, you need to put in the effort.

The sign least affected by the January New Moon should rely on the other signs. "Venus in Sagittarius forms positive aspects to the Moon Nodes and Chiron, helping us heal and align with the right people," she says.

If you're one of these signs, here's how to channel Capricorn energy to your benefit.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Turn your attention to the people in your life, Gemini. The new moon of January 11th gives you the clarity to make practical decisions about your social life, even in the face of conflict.

This new moon is in career-oriented Capricorn, so it's a great time to strengthen relationships with colleagues. "When the Sun and Moon square the North Node in your 11th house of friends, think twice about your business partnerships with people you haven't done your due diligence on," Art says. "Just because you're friends doesn't mean you can do business together."

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

The holidays may be over, but you can enjoy the simple pleasures for a little longer, Virgo. Whether you indulge in some extra-budget shopping or take a nap, you can easily get back to your normal routine. "New moon energy brings the opportunity to press reset," Art says.

This is a great time to start a new art project. “Get creative and bring a childlike sense of wonder into your life,” Art says. "You like to plan, so if you have to make one, even if it's just for fun, do it."

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Aquarius, you have a lot on your mind. "Before your birthday season begins, it's time to evaluate what you need to let go of. It could be friends or relationships that no longer work," Art says.

Time alone doesn’t have to be boring or exhausting, either. A cheerful self-care routine can help you enter Aquarius season with fresh eyes and an open heart.
