Dear Friends,

Wow! A New Moon in Capricorn. It is a Solar Eclipse! Keeping company with Saturn and Pluto. Oh, what help we get to move forward and get our lives the way we want. The key is for you to be on board with this energy. The time has come. If you already have a good routine in place then this energy enhances that. It will take that plan of yours and fuel it with discipline and focus. You already know what you need to do. Maybe some cleaning up is required. Maybe letting go of what was, is needed. Your attention is demanded. No negativity from you! All positive energy to move forward. A New Moon affects us for a month. A Solar Eclipse for a couple of years. This is all about you and what you need or want. It is time to get it together. Your New Years resolutions are all about discipline and responsibility. Make your list and set you intentions for what you want to establish over the next couple of years.


The sign of social responsibility. This is where you build your foundations in the outside world. What mark will you make? What will you contribute? Capricorn describes the need to define your social territory, to find security within your social level. Here, you need respect, recognition, and approval from the outside world.  The responsibilities and limitations encountered in this area of your life involve finding a responsible place and establishing security. The challenge for this house in your chart is perseverance and hard work. Patience is necessary, if one path is blocked, find another.
This New Moon is taking place in the Taurus section of Capricorn called a decanate. The key phrase for Taurus is, “What do I have?” Taurus is concerned with getting results. Money, personal resources, security, survival skills, and self-esteem. To have the things around us that make us comfortable, and reflect who we are. This sign builds. Taurus rules the throat in the physical body.
This New Moon is taking place in the Cancer section of Capricorn called a dwad. The subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity. This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. Time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now. It rules the breast and the stomach.

Pluto went into Capricorn 2008. It has now been there eleven years, and has 5 more years to go. This sign is undergoing intense purification and change. It is a long process.
This New Moon is offering the opportunity to build a new structure after some years of challenges. Saturn is in Capricorn for the first time since 1988/1990. Saturn in its own sign will join with Pluto the next couple of years and what needs to be built will be accomplished. Mercury is also in Capricorn. It is time to get on track in your life. You may need to bring forth a plan that you can sustain. This New Moon could give you exactly what you need for long term security. Saturn in the same sign as Pluto requires an intention and discipline on your part. Venus is in Scorpio encouraging depth, loyalty and focus. She is not only encouraging she is demanding it. With Mars in Aries, action is required. With Saturn in Capricorn discipline is required. Patience and focus are also needed. We get it all done.

This is a symbol of practical experience as at root a matter of developing self-competency, and of life as a never-ending adjustment of ideals and motives to the everyday potentials of human society. The individual is called on to co-operate in a continual estimation and re-estimation of his powers and capacities by his fellows, and to bring aliveness of interest to everything in which he would participate.  A disciplined self-responsibility is demanded for a common achievement. The keyword is ANIMATION. When positive, the degree is an effective appreciation of joint action and a high skill in supervising group effort, and when negative, self-betrayal through unimaginative conventionality.  “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
