 Capricorn New Moon!

The New Moon occurs in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorns at 26 degrees. This is exciting as this New Moon is commencing a new lunar cycle. This First New Moon and lunar cycle of the year will focus on the constructive traits of grounded Capricorn. It’s a time for us to focus on Capricorn’s positive traits such as being goal orientated, practicality, reliable, disciplined, to focus on our work and career and the foundations and structures in our daily lives.

This Capricorn New Moon occurs tonight at 9:18 PM EST. New Moons are occur when  the Sun and Moon join together, blending their energies. Causing the Moon to be in compete darkness as it joins the Sun and recharges its batteries,as one would say for the next lunar cycle.. This New Moon will be at  27° Capricorn. New Moon traditionally are a time for planting seeds of intention, to manifest your dreams, ambitions, goals and projects. It’s also a time to be looking at the future and setting goals. It’s a time to go inward as we the skies are pitch black, it’s about taking an inventory and taking charge of your life. Figuring out what needs tweaking or what you want to achieve in the future. It’s truly a time to set aside a moment or two, to reflect and have a serious contemplation on your life, that will hopefully bring you to an understanding of what focus of growth you want to begin in the upcoming lunar phase and most importantly how you go about reaching these goals.

Capricorn being at 26 degrees, in numerology breaks down to eight. Two plus six equals eight. Eight in numerology is about power in its self, it’s about leadership, business, construction, building and finding a balance. Eight is a Karmic number… You shall reap what you’ve sewn. The eight balances the material and immaterial worlds.  This means this is going to be a very powerful and strong New Moon, that will really give us a push to make positive change.

The New Moon that is happening in the earth sign of Capricorn, the sign of the head strong goat, resistant to external change, to stressful situations and circumstances that would bring others to their knees. Capricorn is associated with those born in January, it’s a time to work hard, making do with what you have. It’s a New Year and a time for all to start fresh.  It’s a time to get back to work and get serious.

One of  Capricorn many talents is that they can get back into the swing of things easily, Capricorn’s are great at focusing on getting back to work, to school and into routine with ease. Capricorn’s are calm, reliable and safe. Capricorn’s are all about doing the right thing, training yourself to deal with hardships and difficulties as they come, it’s about training yourself to do the right thing, to live by the rules, to just get on with things without complaining. Capricorn’s are wonderful at being  grateful along with having  gratitude for what they have. Capricorn’s energy is about applying yourself, using resources and education to get ahead. The energy is also very grounded, reasonable and very practical. Capricorn is not one to complain and defiantly do not tolerate those who feel they have a sense of entitlement. It’s all is far in Love and War!

On the shadow side of Capricorn is, it can be frustrating with there over dedication to stoicism. No self-pity for earthy Capricorn which sometimes is a downfall as being to emotional cut off and over dedicated can be very harsh and cold. It’s about finding the balance and taking on the positive qualities of this sign to set achievable goals this month and for the year ahead.

One of Capricorn’s “lessons” is that we should take on board is acceptance, responsibility, boundaries and that setting goals for ourselves can allow us to focus on what really matters, that rules can actually offer us freedom by eliminating worry and fear.

This New Moon is about releasing worn-out beliefs in mind. Releasing what must happen before you can move ahead. Making room for the new. A new beginning is upon those who choose to make room for change. This New Moon is about becoming more practical and making long-term commitments, goals and change. We have the chance to create some serious order in our lives. The Capricorn energy forces us to recognize our responsibilities, and realistically nurture our dreams and ambitions.

This New Moon aligns with lovely Venus. Than forms a square to Uranus, and sextiles Mars. If there wasn’t a better time for us to realize that we need to break away from old, outdated patterns of thinking and doing so that we can move forward authentically and for our highest best good. Because Venus is involved (like she is in all 3 lunations this month with the Full Moon we had on the 1st, New Moon today and Full Moon Eclipse on 31st). Love, money and relationships (Love, Business and financial partnerships) will be a major  focus for us, especially in regards to transformation and positive change. Venus will also advocate that diplomacy and kindness is the way to move forward with our goals and desires. However Uranus in Aries may not appreciate this softness and feels less comfortable with this idea as it squares the New Moon. This means some of us may tend to lean towards being impulsive and restlessness whilst others are overly focused on security and safety. This New Moon, we may need to master and push past whatever is our particular blockage, whatever makes us feel vulnerable, to gain an edge on our own growth. With wild, unpredictable Uranus in the mix, you may find yourself wanting to move forward but feeling held back by some restrictive outside or inner force. Not to fear, Mars will assist you in finding the will and drive to push through these hurdles and to take action!

What changes do you want in 2018? 15/01/2018.

Monday January 15th, 2018.

Jupiter in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn

Balsamic Moon in Capricorn.

Happy Monday everyone, I hope your weekend was amazing! This week is very interesting, it is a week of two halves. The first part of the week until Wednesday is really action orientated, it’s about connecting with yourself to make positive change. The second half of the week is ruled by Aquarius and Pisces, which has a lot more to do with ideas, dreaming relationships. Today however,  is a very productive, practical and goal orientated day. Later this evening, we see abundant, lucky and expansive Jupiter in Scorpio sextiles the lord of transformation and rebirth, Pluto in Capricorn. This is the first of three exact aspects we will experience whilst Jupiter transits through Scorpio. The 2nd and third aspect will be on the 14/4/2018 and 12/9/2018. The planet of expansion and opportunity (Jupiter) joining with the Lord of Transformation and Evolution (Pluto) will provide us with a wonderful and very profound opportunities to get deep within our self. To majorly transform, gain confidence and evolve ourselves personally, as well as collectively if wanted. This influence will increase our insight, self ability skills, our strategy and problem solving skills, our confidence, our desire for personal self growth, our disciplinary skills and motivation to succeed. Scorpio has passion, insight and potency while Capricorn on the other hand has commitment, seriousness and perseverance. When these two energies of water and earth are put the two together, you will feel balanced and powerful enough that you can move mountains right now.

This aspect can also be exceptional for those who want to focus more on career success and work their way up the professional ladder. To maybe evolve on a soul level, on finding the career that provides you with personal growth and inner work. There is much power to harness right now! Think about what changes you want to make this year in regards to self work and your career?

The Moon spends the day in serious Capricorn and as we build up to the New Moon tomorrow, today would be a great day to set aside some time to reflect, wind down projects and get ready to think about what you want to manifest for yourself this year! If you haven’t got a new years resolution or bucket list now is the time to harness the positive energies around and write down what you want for yourself. Tie up loose ends and get organised for the New Moon and write your New Moon wish list!

We are experiencing at the moment so many astrological energies for change and transformation. As we see Jupiter and Pluto linking up together and the first New Moon of the year! A few questions to may want to ask yourself this New Moon and the first Jupiter/Pluto aspects is, What your intentions are for the year ahead or if you can’t think that far in advance, what intentions have you got to achieve this next month? What changes you want to make? What do you want healed this year? What needs to be released? What do you need to leave behind? Where in your life needs more attention and what areas in your life do you need fun, expansion or transformation?

Remember wherever you apply yourself you will succeed today.

 

 

Happy Monday!
