Waning Moon in Capricorn

Third Quarter Waning Moon in Capricorn

The moon is waning in Capricorn today standing in the center of the light of the full moon and dark of the new moon. Capricorn asks us to pause, reflect, assess, and release.


Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign meaning it initiates action (cardinal) in the material (earth) world of family, traditions, and work.


Capricorn's energy invites in a need for structure, organization and accomplishing goals. When Capricorn is on an upward spiral the energy is disciplined, constructive, and ambitious. When the energy is on a downward spiral it is controlling, compulsive, and materialistic.


The planetary ruler of Capricorn is Saturn, known as the task master planet. It is active when we set a goal and helps us to work towards its achievement. When the moon is waning it is a good time to determine if anything is getting in the way of your success. Take steps to replace those actions that hinder your success with something more constructive.


Reflect and Assess

Take a look at your intentions and notes from the Pisces new moon and consider what is asking to be released to make room space for the new moon next week. Take out your tarot cards, find your Full Moon in Capricorn card from the Pisces Moonth Spread and place it in position number one.


  1. What do I let go of as the moon wanes in Capricorn? (Use card 4 from the New Moon in Pisces Spread)

  2. Where in your life is taking action necessary for your success?

  3. What tradition in your life helps you to stay disciplined?

  4. Is there an aspect of your life where you are practicing too much control?

  5. What is getting in the way of your success?


Next up is the Dark Moon in Pisces on Friday April 8th.
