Amelia’s horoscope: Your keyword for the new moon is hope. Lady Luna is in your 12th house of spirit, so you’re being called to look past any disappointments from last year and on to better, brighter things.
Dylan’s advice: This year challenged hopefulness in ways that felt uncomfortable and even frightening. But hope isn’t just a passive emotion. It’s the elbow grease of the imagination. It takes work to produce. Let the new moon in Capricorn pull you into a space where you recognize the importance of effort in the realm of soul stuff. As the new moon generously flicks a glimmer of hope your way, it is up to you to work for it. Engage in and adhere to a spiritual practice, seek out a challenging and soulful conversation with an inspirational friend, or pick up Rebecca Solnit’s Hope in the Dark for readings on how to actively feed and hydrate hope, especially when it’s withering.
