New Moment! New choice! New Moon!

Welcome to 2016!!

This weekend is a New Moon in Capricorn… the perfect time to set your intentions and visions for the New Year. A New Moon intention carries forward for weeks, sometimes months, and this one will resonate all year.

Capricorn is telling us there is a task at hand; a job to be done, a commitment to be made. The sign of the mountain goat is all about claiming our personal authority. It thrives on words like ‘success’, ‘achievement’, ‘challenge’.

This is where the pedal hits the metal!

But don't expect everything to proceed in a straightforward manner! Three steps forward, two steps back is just the way it goes sometimes. 

Pluto brings an element of tansformation and  change to this New Moon. Sometimes that means endings, often new beginnings. If things aren’t going your way, maybe you need to switch directions. Capricorn is all about taking responsibility, so there’s no use blaming others. Its all up to you!

Speaking of… have you noticed that the last few weeks have been a bit fraught? That has been due to Mars squaring Uranus. This has created an antagonistic, impatient and highly reactive period for those whose charts have been crossed by these aspects.

Now Mercury is being hit by Mars is warrior energy, causing tension with the planet of communication. Under this influence it’s easy to say or do the wrong thing. Or even if you didn’t, someone will perceive that you did, or you them. If Mars Uranus recently brought sudden shocks, unexpected events or accidents, now we get to argue about who’s fault it was!!

Diplomacy is a challenge under this kind of sky. As is staying calm.

Mercury began its retrograde motion (Jan 5th), just after Mars made stressful contact (square) so over the next few weeks some of us will be reflecting on the angry words we said or someone said to us. Or we imagined they did. There is a higher than average chance of missed or understood communications, so please take care to dot your I’s etc.

It is often said that a Mercury retrograde is not the best time to sign contracts, but the whole world cannot stop for three weeks, so just be very, very scrutinizing and don’t forget to read the fine print.

So,  as the  Sun Moon and Pluto meet up in Capricorn, they set the stage for deep personal growth which includes a kind of self scrutiny.

In 12 step work, ‘step four’ is about undertaking a ‘fearless and searching moral inventory’. This is a list drawn up which is then shared with a neutral person…  as a way to get more real with our self. Doing so allows a person to purge bad habits in which we are holding ourselves back.

It sounds daunting but it’s actually very freeing to finally face ourselves head on and look at our foibles. We are already judging ourselves in our heads, so when we put it out there (on paper or to someone) we might even see things are not as bad as we thought. Plus a moral inventory includes the good stuff as well. We can celebrate our strengths as well as admit our weaknesses. This is how we claim our power. 

Wherever the New Moon falls in your chart is where you are being asked to step up to the plate. See Houses above  for descriptions of each area, and ifyou don’t have a chart go to

So, even though we may be bursting to get moving right now, the next three weeks are better spent in a bit more preparation. If you are starting a big project, this time of  reflection means going back over details. It will be time well spent. A stitch in time saves nine etc.

Also: A very positive connection between the New Moon and Jupiter brings a feeling of joy despite the seriousness of the moment.  This is lined up with our collective Destiny (North Node in Virgo at the moment).  Jupiter’s positive presence linking up to the New Moon tells us that whatever we do now has deep significance and will  impact not only our own lives but those around us.  It says choose joy!  Our thoughts have power!

Few last points: 

With Venus squared Neptune some people are going to have some financial challenges as jobs or money disappear, or relationships will be challenging. Venus Neptune is highly idealistic to the point of delusional.

Venus with Saturn will bring us back to earth. It may also bring us down period. Don’t let fear and doubt cloud your vision.

Let this New Moon propell you forward as it takes away anything holding you back.
Set your intention and let it be so.

From  Doreen Virtues Tarot reading for the New Year:  

“It's a time for  moving forward fearlessly, and letting go of former fears. Previous worries about lack are replaced with your clear decision to go for it. Major life changes for you are on the horizon this week.

In some cases, you may move forward because life pushes you that way, or because you have no other choice. You're going through an energy reassignment, where you are shifting where you live and work, so that situations are a better match for you.

As we enter the New Year, the cards show that you'll be deciding to make big life changes for yourself personally. You will be more excited about these changes, rather than nervous about change.

Expect energy reassignments as the overall energies shift things don’t ‘fit’ anymore Relationships, jobs, home. A sense of impending shift/change
