Talking Sky Astrology - NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN – JANUARY 9, 2016

The New Moon beckons us with the safety of darkness to create. The vast quiet within….to imagine, to desire, to pull out of nothing….something. The New Moon gives us the opportunity to take a breath and start again.  It is part of the rhythm of life that brings hope and encourages momentum. A time of renewal….

The first New Moon of 2016 is in Capricorn, and I find it interesting because January is the month when many create their resolutions for new intentions, improvements, and in essence, starting fresh. This Moon transit in Capricorn can be very supportive to get going with what matters to you, if you listen to Capricorn’s message.

Capricorn is an earth sign that seeks integrity through the development of inner authority and mastery within the physical world. There is a strong orientation to career, but more broadly the accomplishment of something meaningful; a goal, a dream, something that requires something of a person. One of the symbols for Capricorn is the mountain goat, a sturdy creature who step by step, with a powerful resolution, climbs the mountain to reach the highest peak. 

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Saturn is currently in the fire sign of Sagittarius and in a conjunction (a close relationship) with Venus also in Sagittarius, blending the energy of love with the energy of discipline. Saturn asks us to be serious and commit to something of personal value. To do the work necessary to grow within the reality of our given situation.

Venus asks us to remember to call in love. When we bring love into the mix of anything, we are bringing ourselves, our true essence. When we bring love, we make healthier choices and this can support and strengthen the necessary commitment, patience, and discipline needed to achieve what we want to accomplish. Venus moves quickly through the cosmos, and this close aspect lasts only a few days, but long enough for us to feel divine guidance and inspiration in regards to our growth process.

And Pluto in Capricorn is nearby further emphasizing the importance of integrity as we seek purpose and fulfillment in any facet of our lives.

During this New Moon, feel what matters to you, what has been calling you. And although it could be your ultimate life goal, it doesn’t have to be as not everyone is sure of what that is in their lives. But something…something that you know you need to do. Maybe just consider the possibilities, or plant a seed.  Capricorn energy is like that…deep inside you know it is important, and in some way, it is time to get started….

Looking into your birthchart for the house that this Moon occurs in, as well as the transit of Saturn and your natal Saturn, will provide information that can bring personal understanding about the energy and message of this New Moon in Capricorn. If you would like to know the placements of these transits, please send me your birth information. I would need your date of birth mm/dd/yyyy, time of birth am/pm (as exact as possible, birth certificate preferred), and city and state of birth.
