Capricorn New Moon January 9-10, 2016
With four planets, Mercury Retrograde and the New Moon in Capricorn, the sign associated with wisdom, maturity, old age and the physical realities of time and space, we are in alignment with the stars for a reality check and a moment of truth. It is also a great time to envision what directions you would like your life to take in the foreseeable future.
I have put a video together for you about what to expect and how you can make plans for the coming year being in the flow with the planetary forces.
Every New Moon is starting a new cycle of emotional awareness and maturation. This gives us the possibility to truly show up in life as a self-conscious, mature, responsible participant, treating others as we would like to be treated. I believe a lot of suffering in the world could be alleviated if everybody would follow this idea.
With Sun, Moon, Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn in January that new emotional wisdom cycle represents the mastery of the physical plane and the maturation into a true spiritual wisdom perspective. Mercury is also turning retrograde Jan 6 and back direct Jan 26 with most of its journey through Capricorn. With that we are getting a second chance to really look at things realistically.

Capricorns are the elders of their tribe. Capricorn is also concerned about efficiency, governmental organization, societal structures, power and control. The dark face of Pluto in Capricorn is showing its face in brutal ways, trying to control the masses, the revolutionary momentum and evolutionary change we are witnessing everywhere in the world.
For you and me personally, it is important to have awareness of where our deepest fears of change lie and how we try to control them–because we try to control the uncontrollable and instead we could use that energy to move forward into new dimensions and new experiences.
So sitting down with your journal, contemplate where you are in your life and what your plans and projects will be for the next year is a very smart way to use this New Moon’s energy.
