New Moon in Capricorn: We finally get a head start!
It has been four years since the legendary pairing of Saturn and Pluto, which took place on January 12, 2020 at the world point, which is at 22 degrees of any Cardinal sign: Aries, Cancer Libra, and Capricorn. In the case of January of 2020, the two tradiional malefics met up at 22 degrees of Capricorn and demolished (pluto) all of the structures in our world as we know it (Saturn/Capricorn). In many cases, structures cam down forever in our personal lives, in our neighborhoods, and on the world front. In other cases, much scaffolding and restructuring in every sense.
The narrative has segued to a focus on mental health, addiction, depression, alienation, creativity, inspiriation, dreams, and empathy. Saturn is now transiting in the mutable water sign of Pisces, where it entered on March 7, 2023, and where it will tour on and off through February 15, 2026. Each of us has been a viction of this time.
Pisces and Neptune can both represent the victims — among other things. Saturn, planet of structure, is still transiting in the very early degrees of Pisces. Whereas, Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces and planet of dreams, illusion, delusion, compassion, and imagionation, is transiting at the very late degrees of Pisces in 2024. This is hardly a time to weaponize victimhood. This is a time to garner passion, empathy, and imagination to be part of other like minded souls aiming to help those who really cannot reprsesent or speak up for themselves.
t is now Capricorn season, which is a time to focus on what your future goals and plans are, and what steps and strategy you want to take to get there. On December 30, 2023, Jupiter, which is the grand benefic and the luckiest planet of the zodiac, stationed direct at 5 degrees and 34 minutes of the fixed earth sign of Taurus. We feel the characteristics of any outer planet magnified when it stations. With Jupiter, is is excess, abundance, opportunity, good fortune, travel, and higher learning, and sometimes it is just plain too much! Nonetheless, Jupiter is the planet of optimism, and it marks and optimism and hope much needed both to end 2023 and begin 2024.
Mercury, the planet of communication, information, travel, and transportation, retrograded on December 13, 2023 at 8 degrees and 29 minutes of the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. This was an opportunity to reexamine your goals and what you the big goal(s) you want to accomplish in the year of 2024. Mercury stationed direct on January 1 at 22 degrees and 11 minutes of the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius, which is a sign that is ruled by Jupiter and is a sign that seeks hopefulness and adventure.
Mercury will actually retrade at this very degree on November 25, 2024 later in the year at 22 degrees of Sagittarius so in regards to some things you are developing at the the very beginning of this year will afford you the opportunity to re-do and e-evaulate the process by holiday season of 2024. But, who wants to jump to holiday season when we finally left that noise behind?
So, where are we this week? Well, it is currently January 9 2024, and Mercury, the planet of communication, made a challenging square to Neptune, planet of confusion and dreams, on January 8, 2024. We felt the buildup all of last week. Even though Mercury is now direct, this could bring a fog and a haze. It can make you feel tired and draind. However, I think there is more of of a magical tone to it.
There is a new moon in Capricorn on January 11, 2024, and it encapsulates the goal driven tone of 2024 in spite of the Neptune haze is quite haze with Saturn and Neptune taking a mystical tour in Neptune’s waters. Mars, the planet of action, drive, and ambition, entered the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn on January 4, 2024, where it will tour through February 13, 2024. Mars loves being in Capricorn, where it is exalted and is extremely driven and actien oriented. Mars in Capricorn strives to get it done and will deliver!
The Sun, Mars, and Pluto are all transiting in Capricorn. The sun represents how you shine, and it represents ego and identity. Mars is the planet of action. Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth, transformation, and evolvement.
Mars is not only transiting in Capricorn, where is is very powerful and exalted; but, it is out-of-bounds from December 20, 2023 through January 23, 2024. This means it exceeds the Sun’s path by declination and exceeds either 23 degrees and 27 north or south of the ecliptic. This amplifies the Mars energy and can make you extra successful at the tasks you take on; but, it could also amplify people’s anger and impatience.
The New Moon in Capricorn occurs on January 11, 2024 at 6:57 am EST at 20 degrees and 44 minutes of the Cardinal sign of Capricorn, which automatically sets off the legendary Saturn/Pluto pairing from 1/12/2020, which changed the world forever. It also sets of the the Lunar Eclipse that occurred on 1/10/2020 at 20 degrees of Cancer and opposed this point and directly opposes the upcoming New Moon. There have been so many tests and challenges in the past few years with heavy Saturnian demands. However, it is time to build again and focus on dreams. Saturn, the cosmic architect, is no longer in the signs that it rules or in a sign it particularly likes while in Pisces, but it is is a time to surrender, dream, imagine, float, and tap into the alpha part of the brain.
I cast the New Moon chart for Washington DC, and the chart has Capricorn Ascendandant in addition to its being a new moon in Capricorn. Heavy energy around business, goals, responsibilities, and achievement! All of the planets are direct aside from Uranus, which stations direct on January 27, 2024 at 19 degrees and 5 minutes of the fixed earth sign of Taurus. This new moon chart provides a lot of opportunitiy to get things done, as the New Moon itself falls in the first house of new beginning.
Uranus, the planet of invention, forms a beautiful angle to the New Moon and reminds you that you are the source of a lot of abundance and expansion, and it is within you more than you realize. The New Moon trine Uranus brings a lot of innovative thinking, and it is excellent for networking, online ventures in work, and out-of-the-blue good luck! This New Moon squares the Nodes of Fate, which are currently transiting at 20 degrees of the Cardinal signs of Aries and Libra. This could bring even more fated opportunities to connect socially, Pay attention to invitations, events, and meetings that occur around the weekend of January 12, 2024.
Mercury is at 27 degres of the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius, and this is right at the Galactic center, which is the center of the milky way. You can get a lot of sensitive information and psychic downloads with Mercury at the Galactic Center, and it squares Neptune, planet of confusion and idealism. On one hand, things are boundless and beyond your wildest dreams.
This new Moon wants you to really dream and focus on your inuition and psychic ability. However, with Pluto at the final degree of Capricorn and a new moon in Capricorn with Mars in its exaltation in Capricorn in this New Moon chart, it is time to take inventory and accountability.
This is is the first New Moon of the year, and it is an excellent time to set new intentions and plant new seeds for this year ahead! Take a blank check or write on a piece of paper (you can print Law of Abundance check internet).
Date the check for the day of the New Moon, which is January 11, 2024. Where it says, “Pay to the order or,” print your full name. Leave the small numeric box blank. Where you would normally print the full dollar amount, print, “Paid in Full.” At the bottom of the check, where you would normally sign your name, print, “The Law of Abundance.
Mercury, the planet of thinking, learning, communication, and sales, returns to the sign of Capricorn on January 13, 2024, where it will transit through February 5, 2024. Mercury, Mars, the Sun, and Pluto will all be transiting in Capricorn right after this dynamic new moon in Capricorn, which urges you to take risks and go for what you want and re-focus your drive. There is so much to discuss for 2024, and there will be times that feel so sleepy and scattered. But, now is not the time to dream. Now it is time to live it! #astrology #horoscope #zodiac
