Lunar Astrology by Shakti Carola Navran

Capricorn New Moon January 9-10 & Leo Full Moon in Gemini January 23-24

With four planets 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. This is a great time to envision what directions you would like your life to take in the foreseeable future.

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 and contemplating 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.

When the Full Moon is culminating in Leo, the Sun has to be in Aquarius. Aquarius represents the morphogenetic field of group consciousness and human evolution. Your individual work of integration of higher consciousness into your daily life has an impact on the whole. Our personal identifications with ego and self-image, gender, race, religion and country will shape the global manners of how we are treating each other on a bigger scale. With Pluto in Capricorn, those old beliefs and structures will not survive this century. We will have to come together as one humanity and solve the problems we are facing.

Leo is a sign of individuality and personal power. Leo in its highest expressions is the sign of self-empowerment and creative contribution as a benign leader and force for good. This can work well for you in taking charge and planning for a successful year.

With the Sun in Aquarius, you can now clarify your highest vision for this coming year. Ask yourself: Who do you want to be in these times of tremendous change? Who do you want to be for yourself, your family and friends and your community? What is your personal gift to add to that threshold of change ushering us into the Aquarian age?

Please go to my YOUTUBE channel SHAKTI CAROLA NAVRAN and watch my forecast video for 2016. I will love to see your comments. In this video that I put together you will learn about what to expect and how you can make plans for the coming year, while being in the flow with the planetary forces.

Get ready for a month of review and contemplation, a necessary process preparing you for new beginnings…

Shakti Carola Navran, evolutionary astrologer, counselor and published author: I have been giving astrological readings professionally for 36 years now and I love to do this work. To look at a chart through the evolutionary wisdom perspective of your soul adds a deeply meaningful and significant perception of yourself and your activities in your life. As a result it will give you the key of higher consciousness to align yourself with the current cosmic flow for spiritual growth. Evolutionary Astrology adds a karmic dimension and will give you the answer to WHY you are the person you are with your specific qualities, issues and challenges. It will connect your inner dots in a new and enlightening way and empower you with a higher perspective and helps to make better choices in your life. Have a look at some testimonials 1. A good birth chart reading can be truly life changing when it alters the fabric of consciousness through which you perceive your own being and personal self-expression. You can redefine areas of problems into challenges of healing and personal growth and gain insight about how to meet those areas best.

Skype Astrology In the 21st century one of the delightful gadgets we get to play with is Skype. I have been giving astrological readings on Skype for people all over the globe in Canada, Switzerland, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Tokyo, Thailand, Korea, Taiwan, Germany, Barcelona, London, and of course the mainland U.S. It still leaves me in awe that I can see you and talk to you for free anywhere on the planet that you have internet access. It seems like magic! I also do astrological consultations by phone, but in my experience, being able to see each other helps us connect better and deepens the reading. If you don’t have Skype already you can download the program for free and set up an account. If you have any questions about how to do this, let me know.
