We start January 2022 with an early new moon, unleashing the new of 2022 and flowing into what can be a harmonious year for us, if we choose it. By setting a new intention for the month of January and then allowing it to grow into the full moon as the month progresses, you can receive the guidance and support you need to flow through this month and beyond. 
Although the earth seems cold and “dead” this time of year, winter is actually a season of potential as we hibernate and allow new possibilities to generate. In fact, the time we spend in stillness is often our most productive, so embrace it! This month’s moon, crystal, and essential oil guidance will help you set your intentions for a new month and a new year in ways that align with your deepest self.

January 2022 New Moon Insights

Slipping from the end of 2021 into the balanced, harmonious energy of 2022, we are taking a journey from the Gemini full moon of last year into a light, early new moon in Capricorn on January 2nd, 2022. This is an auspicious date for releasing anything that did not serve you in 2021 and welcoming in the practical, grounded energy of Capricorn, particularly in a way that is harmonious and at peace. 

Capricorn is a perfect sign for new beginnings, and the energy of January 2nd will be phenomenal for taking advantage of a new moon ritual to get your new year started off right. The sensible, hard-working energy of Capricorn will be just what you need to set your New Year’s resolutions and stick to them, if that’s what you choose. Regardless, this will be a great new moon for re-evaluating your priorities and re-committing to the ones that serve you the most. If you are a Capricorn, your birthday is either just past or right around the corner, so give yourself a little extra time to hunker down and enjoy the safe, luxurious energy of home.

January 2022 New Moon Crystal + Essential Oil Guidance

January 2022 New Moon Crystal and Essential Oil
New Moon Crystal: Bloodstone
On January 2nd, connect with bloodstone, a grounding, cleansing stone wonderful for releasing negative energy and connecting you with your inner self. As you focus on what is coming up to be healed during the new moon, allow bloodstone to guide you to the intentions that you most need at this time, particularly when it comes to the grounded energy of Capricorn and new beginnings. 

Similarly, clary sage is a powerful essential oil for clarity of mind. It resonates well with the crown chakra, and can be so helpful for finding mental surety of what you want in your life. Diffuse clary sage in your home to create a spiritual, focused atmosphere as you set your new moon intentions this month.

January 2022 Full Moon Insights

On January 17th, the full moon in Cancer will usher in a sensitive, creative energy that can spur you to take your new moon intentions to the next level. Your new moon intentions will have started to bear fruit, so you can use those insights to refine and cultivate what you’ve already started.

Cancer energy will support you in letting go of anything else coming up to be healed at this time, whether that be an emotional pattern, an aspect of yourself highlighted by this time of year, or anything else that is no longer in harmony with your higher self.

January 2022 Full Moon crystal and essential oil
Full Moon Crystal: Moonstone

The crystal for this month’s full moon is, appropriately, moonstone. This shimmering, iridescent stone is a soft-yet-powerful energy that glimmers with the radiance of our highest self. As a peaceful stone, you can allow anything you are ready to release to leave your life with equanimity and perspective. 

Moonstone pairs perfectly with lavender essential oil, an oil that is touted for its sleep-inducing properties but is actually good for so much more. Since the full moon is a time when most of us actually need less sleep, why not try using lavender in new ways this time? It can inhibit harmful bacteria and support healthy sinus function, as well as assist with glowing, clear skin. Diffuse lavender for a cleansing, restful environment or dilute it with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) and apply directly to the skin. Or, if you really need some extra shut eye due to the moon’s powerful forces, use a little lavender on your temples for a good night’s rest (you can also spritz it on your pillow before sleep).
