Jan 5th 2019


  • Mercury, Saturn, Moon/Sun, Pluto, South Node in Capricorn
  • New Moon/Sun sextile Neptune
  • Venus inconjunct Uranus
  • Mercury square Mars

What is the energy like: New moon in Capricorn with Solar Eclipse today. An immense amount of energy in Capricorn today at this new moon is not just a beginning for this next 1 month but also setting the tone for the year ahead. Can feel very intense with karmic components like Saturn, Pluto and South Node here.

What to watch out for: This is a great day to get down seriously to come up with a  plan for 2019 and the beyond. This eclipse is taste of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction coming up on Jan 12th 2020.

Capricorn themes are heavily emphasized today and the rest of the year.

With so much Capricorn, it may be very easy to experience the shadow side of it. Judgement from self and others, strictness, rigidity, focus on accomplishment at all cost, irritation and contempt towards others not matching our thoughts and beliefs, feeling of restrictions and feeling of not having freedom.

But understand that this new moon is giving us an great opportunity to dissolve these shadow aspects that may be running through our lives and build something truly substantial and sustainable for the future.

The year ahead is going to test us. Integrity is the word that comes to mind. Are we living in integrity with our heart’s desires? Are we being our own authority or mindlessly following what someone else says and does? Pluto is going to shake things up and break down structures not for our highest good. Saturn can help us build the new structure to support our lives in the years ahead but only if we are truly being our own authority. Otherwise Saturn’s influence can feel very restrictive.

Neptune sextile sun is helping to soften the harshness of shadow Capricorn and allowing us to tap into our source of divine within.

Venus inconjunct Uranus can bring up frustration at not having enough freedom to pursue our deepest desires.

How to navigate these aspects: Let go and let grace is the mantra today. Really give yourself sometime today in silence, in the dark of the moon to focus on your plan for the year. Then come up with the action steps needed to move ahead with those plans. Capricorn is an excellent energy to work with to give structure and form to your ideas. It can also give you determination, strength and focus to pursue excellence and mastery, because its essence is wisdom.
