The Capricorn New Moon is exact today at 5:31 pm PST. I like that Sun, Moon and Mercury will all be rooted in the disciplined sign of Capricorn at this time – along with Pluto, whose long rendezvous with the Goat will last a total of 16 years, from January 2008 to January 2024!
This is a lot of focused energy in Capricorn’s sensible terrain. Sun is our identity, karma and purpose. Moon is inner-awareness and emotions. Mercury (who is retrograde) is the mind, curiosity, scrutiny and communication. Finally, we have Pluto – representing desires and soul-contracts.
New Moon is about intention setting. Capricorn says less talk, more action. She gives us drive and stamina. She is ruled by Saturn, our planet of structure, focus and hard work. Universally, Capricorn rules the 10th House of career, status and reputation. However, to see where all this Capricorn energy is affecting you personally, you must look at the area of your natal chart that is ruled by the Goat – tracking planetary transits in our own lives is fascinating and eye opening.
We are being asked to remember what we came here for.
New Moon in Capricorn is fabulous for planning and creating order in our lives. It is an auspicious time to begin new projects that are long-term and require commitment. It might feel easier, or even unavoidable, to cut through bullshit today – yours or someone else’s.
La Luna will go void-of-course tomorrow morning at 9:39 am, but not for long. She will enter Aquarius at 12:23 pm, which will shift the energy toward freedom and creative expression. Aquarius is the wild child, he shakes things ups and he demands liberation for all beings.
Today we root, we go within. Tomorrow we fly.
