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?
