New Moon in Capricorn
January 13, 2021 marks the beginning of a new emotional cycle, as the Sun and Moon conjoin at 23° of Capricorn. This New Moon is closely conjunct Pluto at 24° of Capricorn, illuminating a path to direct personal power. All new lunar cycles represent a fresh start, a time to set new intentions on a clear slate. Saturn, the ruler of this Capricorn Moon, has now moved past Pluto, and entered into the air sign of Aquarius, along with Jupiter. Mercury, the messenger planet of the human mind, has also moved into Aquarius and is conjunct Jupiter.
As the old structures of the past continue to collapse, a new era is being born. Saturn conjunct Jupiter conjunct Mercury serves to create a positive solution squad. An energy is created by these three that encourages finding new solutions, as humanity emerges in an endeavor to build new structures of support, in a brand new world. This conglomeration of problem solvers, conjoined in Aquarius, is square to the troublesome trio consisting of Uranus, Mars, and Black Moon Lilith, in the Earth sign of Taurus. This tense square aspect is where agitated power dynamics at play may present themselves. The kind of dynamics that hold the possibility of producing breakthrough energy. It encourages establishing new protocols of participating with one another and supports putting a plan into action.
A newly arrived Venus is at 6° of Capricorn during this New Moon. The presence of this interpersonal planet allows for any newly shifted values to be aligned with the fresh structures of stability that are being created in 2021. Also, Neptune at 18°of Pisces will be in a tight square to the lunar nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius, challenging a release of the old ego attachments, and stimulating a conscious desire to expand and evolve into the future self.
With a plethora of planets all transiting the last three signs of the Zodiac, the final push of a New Era is being birthed on this planet. This powerful new lunar cycle offers the opportunity to pursue desired objectives in peace. Spiritual aspirations can be achieved, yet Saturnian ruled Capricorn requires determined dedication. This process of evolving has value on a societal scale and contributes positively to the collective.
The Sun, Moon, Pluto conjunction at play during this initiating lunation serves to polish sovereign power. The totality of the aspects represented at this time are demanding truth. Something that has eluded society for far too long. Along with the new lunar shift, Uranus stations direct in Taurus the day after, on January 14th. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and this change in direction evokes a change in energy upon the Earth. Layers upon layers of newness are now emerging as humanity moves into a New Age. There will be no better time this year to create all that is emotionally fulfilling than this New Moon in Capricorn.
