|Tuesday, January 16. New Moon In Capricorn
The time for play is over, because today’s new moon in Capricorn is serious business. The Goat’s energy resonates responsibility and discipline, and if you can find a way to harness its practical and reliable power, you can do some spectacular things. Of course, the energy of most aspects is dependent on what you do with it, so you have to make up your mind to move in a positive direction under this new moon. Don’t let the fear of repeating past mistakes stop you from getting what you want now.
*NEW MOON* in Capricorn is calling us to rise from within and move forward with our deepest Knowing. We began the year coming to terms with what is no longer working and what needs to be let go of and now it’s time to move onward and trust in the unknown journey that awaits. The beauty is we can choose to learn from our past and use our experiences as the fertile soil that will one day shoot new sprouts.
The new moon on Tuesday January 16, 2018 at 26 degrees Capricorn is the last moon phase before a new series of eclipses. This does influence the astrology of New Moon January 2018 as it creates a rush to finish long-term projects you began within the last five months. If your goals have anything to do with love or money you will be happy. The new moon aligns nicely with beautiful Venus the planet of love and harmony.
The January 2018 new moon does, however, make a hard aspect to Uranus which brings unexpected change and uncertainty. But a better aspect to strong and sexy Mars comes to the rescue to resolve any crisis and ignite the flames of love.
“Saturn in its own sign is like Saturn squared. “One of our major purposes now is learning to bring our spiritual legacy down into our physical, daily, middle world lives.
“We’ve been to the underworld and know our shadow areas; we’ve been to the upper worlds and touched into Spirit, now our task is to bring that powerful knowledge into fruition in the physical world.“Capricorn rules the bones, the foundation of the body, where our stability comes from and where we store our most ancient patterns.
“Capricorn’s mission as guardian of the community is to preserve stability, to build on what has gone before, and to protect. She guides us to ask, ‘what are the consequences of our actions, what do we aspire to as a community, how do we insure what we value persists and grows?’
Venus will change signs the day after New Moon moving into Aquarius just two days before the Sun also moves into Aquarius bringing some much needed air element into our planetary influences.
