Tonight’s Capricorn New Moon at 19 degrees (January 9th, 8:30 PM EST)brings with it the ambition and strong work ethic that gives us the ability to make our dreams a tangible reality. The New Moon forms a conjunction to Pallas (also known as, Pallas Athene) Zeus’ daughter; our ideas and thought process are brought to life through hard work and responsibility. The urge to get a move on and make things happen is quite strong with this New Moon. If you can dream it, you can achieve it, is the motto.
Our goals are further supported by the New Moon’s trine to Jupiter in Virgo. Our dreams are extended beyond the self and the strong earth energy gives us both focus and discipline. Capricorn likes to play by the rules, and their desire for status and success gives them the drive to reach the highest of mountains. We may find ourselves wanting to impress the right people; just make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons.Over doing it (Jupiter can go overboard) can create a certain level of greediness when it comes to rubbing elbows with the right people and our desires.
Cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Libra and Cancer) between 18-20 degrees will more than likely be impacted the most. The house where the New Moon transits will be illuminated bringing with it a pragmatic approach and the New Moon’s opposition to Earth in Cancer brings balance between self-control/caution and emotional connecting.
Capricorn’s symbol, the sea-goat, has the ability to explore the hidden depths of the soul while reaching the seemingly impossible heights of success. The New Moon’s wide conjunction to Pluto adds even more power to our need to succeed.
Venus and Saturn in Sagittarius form a tight conjunction encouraging us to accept responsibility, be committed, yet do so with an adventurous spirit and positive outlook. Stressful aspects between Venus/Saturn can often have a dismal approach to life, but the conjunction forms a trine to Uranus. We can work towards being disciplined without sacrificing our individuality. Uranus’ square to the Moon/Sun creates exciting and unique ways to make our dreams come true.
Neptune in Pisces trines Mars in Scorpio brings the gift of acting on our dreams. Our fantasies aren’t merely in the deepest part of the subconscious; we can actually act on these ideals and visions, bringing them to life. Career goals and achievement are the focus during this New Moon. We’re more than willing and prepared to deal with our duties; creating tangible results in the process.
