New Moon in Capricorn

“Use this new moon to clarify your priorities and goals. Love and respect your body’s needs. Listen to the yearnings of your soul.” Stephanie Austin
The New Moon at 19 Capricorn is at 8:30 pm EST Saturday January 9th. The sign of Capricorn governs mastery over the laws of the material plane. This Mercury retrograde period is a good time to rethink how your thoughts and beliefs are related to what you are trying to create in the world. Do you believe on a deep level that you can do it? Do you support yourself through moments of doubt and fear? Is there an undermining lack of clarity in your vision?
Much of the activity we are seeing in the outer world around us has a dismantling quality to it – the old ways are being dismantled to make way for the new – not an easy, comfortable or one step process. This dismantling influence is present in your inner world as well and with Uranus involved taking an innovative approach to what is possible is indicated. We all have seen how dramatically the world has changed with the advent of cyber technologies –  an area ruled by revolutionary, innovative and futuristic Uranus.
Venus is now making a benefical aspect to Uranus as she moves up to an exact trine in fire on January 12. The Sun is making a good aspect to Jupiter as well – making this a time when more guidance and vision is available about the way forward.
With Jupiter’s transit near the North Node it is a good time to let go of the pain of the path to open a more expansive path forward.
One of the Sabian symbols for the New Moon is, “The king of the fairies approaching his domain.”
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.

Jupiter and Mercury

“I want to be with those who know secret things
or else alone.” Rilke

Although the Mars/Uranus conjunction in fiery, Aries (in influence through 3/25) can lead to erratic, impulsive action, there are other strong influences in the sky now that bode well for seeking guidance from higher planes and intuitive sources.

The Sabian symbol for Jupiter’s degree now is, “Cherub- like, a human soul whispers into every ear, seeking to manifest.” This indicates that something is trying to manifest and that heeding spiritual guidance or intuitive messages can bring significant realizations now that can impact on your life in a powerful way.

The symbol for Uranus’s degree now is.”Brightly clad brownies dancing in the warm dying light.” Brownies are nature spirits who are helpful to humans – as long as the humans are not too intrusive. The waning light is a symbol of a time that is ending and the brownies are dancing and celebrating. This symbol is a reminder of the magic of life and moments of synchronicity as well as the helpful friendly guidance which surrounds us if we are open to it.

Mercury is moving into Pisces on the 13th – providing a good time for the imagination, spiritual work and creative work. As the well known astrologer Caroline Casey has written, “Imagination lays the tracks for the Reality Train to follow.”
