A sudden ending, shift in perspective or event comes without warning. Eclipse energy can bring very sudden change. However, you see the bigger picture. This is something that was necessary. As this happens you may be presented with many choices. You take charge and move forward on what you want and need. You don’t owe anyone anything. You’re being analytical and pragmatic. A new love offer or new opportunity for emotional fulfillment, or creative endeavor is on the horizon. It’s time to let go of the past and embrace your future. What’s done is done. You may need to forgive and reconcile with someone or they need to do the same to you. In this process someone or something from the past resurfaces for a new beginning.

The Tower: A sudden ending or shakeup.
King of Wands: A masculind passionate leader who moves with confidence and sees the bigger picture.
6 of Cups: Reunion. Nostalgia. Reconciliation.
Queen of Swords: A feminine and analytical leader who listens to head over heart.

Today we enter a New Moon phase in the zodiac sign of Capricorn.   This phase is especially significant in that it proceeds a partial solar eclipse on January 6th.

Remember the powerful moons and eclipses of summer 2018? The energy of this moon will hold the same level of intensity. There will be other aspects to this moon that will affect this energy as well. This moon is expected to pack a punch.

The zodiac sign of Capricorn is practical and grounded. She has little need for the frivolous. She is a hard worker who is ambitious and likes order. Capricorn is a loyal friend and partner. She is funny and practical with a love for art and music, but can be a little bit of a know-it-all and set in their ways. She is ruled by Saturn, which tends to make them very focused and attracted to order.

New Moons are a time to plant seeds and begin something new. With the Capricorn energy’s influence, you may have the grounded hard working energy needed to get something off the ground.  Be careful to not get too bogged down in perfection or knowing everything that could possibly happen.

Eclipses are know for taking things out of our lives and bringing newness and opportunities in. It is the most powerful aspect in astrology- where the Sun conjuncts the Moon. The possibilities are endless. Nothing is off limits. Your negative habits that need to go could bubble up to the forefront.  People could pass on suddenly.  A relationship may reach its expiration. New opportunities could arrive. This is a good time to start a business, project or relationship.

Another aspect to this moon is to the fixed star Vega. It is the brightest star in the northern sky.  Vega is often associated with ego and can make people more kind and peaceful. Vegas loves the arts as well. Vega also can cause people to be overtly sexual or pretentious. Its conjunction with the sun and moon can also bring about a disingenuous energy, hence its association with ego.

Saturn, who rules Capricorn, will have a strong influence bringing about a serious and critical overtone. Saturn is about discipline and responsibilities. This influence can definitely help with any new endeavors to give you the discipline needed to buckle down. Remember to not take anything too seriously, however.

Neptune will also be around this moon. He will enhance spiritual focus, heighten intuition, and with the aspect to Vega, will help the artists and creatives in the room enhance and focus on their craft. Maybe you can make a little money doing that creative hobby? Pay attention to your dreams and prepare for heightened psychic abilities.

Like any New Moon, it is a time to focus on the month ahead, plant seeds for what we hope to grow, and set goals for the future. With the various energies around this moon, take time to consider seeds you want to plant for 2019.  The crop from these seeds will be plentiful.

 

The coming year is going to be expansive. New career moves, projects, and romance look promising.  The predominant element in the collective energy is fire. That energy is heavily represented by the King of Wands in a few of the monthly readings.  This energy speaks to passion, leadership, wisdom, and the directed motivation to make dreams reality. This is the year to give it a spin and see where you land. Let’s get this thing off the ground.

The Winter Solstice is when the Earth’s Northern Hemisphere tilts the farthest from the sun.  This happens once a year in each hemisphere, creating the shortest day and longest night of the year. This year’s solstice coincides with the Sun entering Capricorn.

The Winter Solstice marks the middle of winter. The days will start to gradually get longer and the nights shorter.  Winter is the time when many mammals go into hibernation and rest. With less day light and colder temperatures, it’s difficult to hunt and gather in the cold with less daylight. Humans are not that different in the animal kingdom. Unfortunately, our current way of life does not support uninterrupted months of rest. It is, however, a time to indulge in much needed downtime.

Spiritually, the solstice is viewed as a time when the sun stands still. Its time to fine tune the last details. It represents the last burst of energy to win the race. It is the final wrap.

The solstice is a representation of the dark night of the soul. The longest night of the year reminds us that even though the night is long, the sun again will rise. We will awaken. The light will  come and the darkness will end.

The energy surrounding the solstice can feel intense and deeply reflective. Can you sit with what you find in the dark? What should be brought to the light? It is a time to make peace with the parts of yourself you may not look on too fondly and that of others.

With the sun moving into Capricorn, the energy will be grounded and realistic. Capricorn is one of the most down to earth signs of the zodiac. She is less dreamy and not too concerned with the trivial and anything deemed frivolous. This energy can play on the heavy solstice energy in being practical with your choices. The energy can aid in separating the murkiness-to see things as they really are.

As we move through winter and honor the solstice, let us share the enjoyment of this time of rest. Lets bring what is hidden into the light.

The Empress: Mother. Compassion. Fertility.

Bottom of the Deck- The Tower: Sudden Upheaval. Shake Up. A Sudden Ending.

Each new moon phase marks the beginning of the next chapter.  It is a time to plant new seeds and embark on new beginnings.  It is time to start anew.

Today we enter a new moon phase in the fiery and spontaneous sign of Sagittarius.  The symbol for Sagittarius is the archer- optimistic, focused, skilled, and precise. The archer cannot hesitate, but move with quickness to strike.  The energy surrounding this new moon will propel you forward. There is no time to slow down.  Its time to take a gallant leap into the next phase with a positive and open mind. The shadow side of Sagittarius is a quick tempered and fiery personality.  Sagittarius is known for acting first then thinking later. Keep this in mind in your decisions and actions. Make sure to not act out of impulse.

This new moon will have other aspects to Jupiter that will play on the carefree and playfulness of Sagittarius.  Jupiter is the planet of good luck and wants us to grow into abundance. This influence from Jupiter may push you to learn something new, express yourself in a different way and explore foreign possibilities. It can bring in unexpected good luck and fortune.

The energy surrounding this new moon feels thick and somewhat surreal. It is going to push you to ask big and important questions. Life is a stage. What role do you play? Do you like the character you are portraying? Maybe it is time to audition for a different role.

Thanks to an upcoming solar eclipse and aspects to Mars and Neptune, deep desires and emotions are bubbling to the surface. Mars is an intense energy of aggression and action. Mars symbolizes war and human’s animal nature. Playing with the fire of Sagittarius can create an atmosphere rife for conflict and urgency. Neptune is a planet of spirituality, illusion, and enlightenment.  Neptune pushes us to look within.  Forgotten passions and areas that have been unclear will be pushing you to reach for something new. What is it that gives your life meaning?

With this new moon phase put ideas and dreams into action. It is time to start being true to yourself and living with purpose. It is time to expose your inner desires and aspirations. This energy started having its effects days before the new moon and will hang around for the next few days. Pay attention to what comes up in your awareness and use this energy to your advantage.
