Wednesday, JANUARY 13
The New Moon occurs seconds into the day in the sign of Capricorn, symbolizing a new beginning. It makes sense to focus on some of the constructive traits of the sign of the Goat–tenacious, resourceful, disciplined, wise, ambitious, prudent, constant–and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives. It’s a time to focus on practical and attainable long-term goals, work on developing maturity and common sense, prepare for the future, make commitments and recognize responsibilities, and realistically nurture our dreams.
With this potent Capricorn energy, we have the chance to create some serious order in our lives. It’s time to make concrete plans. We might develop reasonable boundaries and rules that offer us some freedom from worry and chaos.
This lunation aligns with Pluto, emphasizing an intense, focused, and ambitious period ahead of us.
A Mars-Saturn square occurs this morning, and with its proximity to the New Moon, it has more power. As determined as we may be, there are obstacles to surmount! We could feel blocked from asserting ourselves or pursuing our desires. It’s a time to slow down and make adjustments and edits, as we may encounter resistance if we push ahead. It can seem like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks. We might deal with disapproval or a dip in confidence, and we should draw on patience and aim to develop our endurance. It’s a better time for maintenance than it is for moving forward. We might recognize some of our limits and adjust our speed accordingly.
This evening, Venus forms a trine to Uranus, however, and we’re lightening up considerably as the day advances. This transit brings us out of our shells, encouraging our bolder, more innovative natures, socially speaking. We are especially interested in all that is new, fresh, invigorating, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary regarding romantic involvements, entertainment or pleasures, and financial undertakings. We may be experimenting, improvising, and trying new ways of relating to others and expressing ourselves. We might discover alternative ways to make (or spend) money. Although a little detached, we’re freer with our feelings, and we find beauty in the unfamiliar or uncommon.
The Moon leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius at 11:45 AM EST.
The void Moon occurs from 2:22 AM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to Pluto), until the Moon enters Aquarius at 11:44 AM EST.
