Have you been beginning to notice what needs to change in your life in order for steady progress to be made?
The upcoming new moon in Capricorn will allow for just this.
Happening on January 12th or 13th, depending on where you live, the new moon could bring a necessary crisis or surprise into your life to help you shift gears and start focusing on your real priorities.
You can expect to feel the new moon’s influence three days before and three days after the 12th-13th. So be prepared for a bit of a bumpy ride until then.
Right now, a new beginning is happening in your life. It’s related to something you’ve been working on changing over the past two years.
Occurring at 23’ Capricorn, this new moon may bring new perspective to a power struggle or challenge you’ve been experiencing that has been getting in the way of achieving what really matters to you.
This challenge is somehow related to events or realizations that occurred during the July 16th 2019 eclipse at 24’ Capricorn. Think back to that time period. What was happening then will give you important clues about where in your life this new moon is delivering a new possibility.
Over the coming days, you will be able to integrate lessons around where you went wrong in the past, and will be given a fresh opportunity to manage control issues or power struggles in a more productive and empowering way.
It’s likely this new moon could bring dramatic events, crises, surprises, and power plays into your life, as a way to help facilitate these changes. So let’s take a deeper look at this catalyzing new moon, and find out how to turn its energies toward your advantage.
A New Kind of Power
Have you ever wanted something so badly that you were willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen?
With the new moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, you may be starting to notice that “whatever it takes” isn’t always the best approach.
A massive release of misaligned energy is possible now, bringing with it an opportunity to rededicate your energy in a more useful and productive way.
If you’ve been going about getting what you want in the wrong way, dramatic situations involving a shocking turn of events or power struggles could serve as the messenger for where you have been missing the mark.
Pay attention to anything upsetting you over this next week. If you try to force people or events around you to change, it will only make matters worse. Instead, notice how you could adjust your approach internally, and align with your desires in a more practical, matter-of-fact way.
The coming days will be highlighting an urgent need to eliminate the non-essential elements in your life that have been holding you back from what truly matters to you.
With several intense aspects accompanying the new moon from Uranus, Mars, and Pluto, it will be important to keep your cool and have a detached, objective view of your situation.
The moon in Capricorn can be a bit cold. However, you can work with its calculating energy by taking on a more practical, efficient outlook. This will help you stay focused on what’s essential without getting swept away by strong emotions.
You are being pushed to make necessary internal changes right now, and to take care of your boundaries, duties, and all your physical needs in a big way.
Your focus is taking a more serious turn over this next week, helping you become more grounded, and shifting the nature of your responsibilities toward greater alignment.
Your inner relationship to power is also transforming. If you pay attention to the lessons now, you can learn how to bring more power into your life with less conflict and effort.
With new awareness, comes new possibilities. It’s quite possible this moon will coincide with a strong shift in your direction. A fresh opportunity for achieving your goals is starting to become clear, and you might have to pivot your direction to take advantage of it.
A Sudden Shift In Your Desire
Over the week ahead, it’s a good idea to stay on your toes and be ready to make lightning flash adjustments to your plans.
Mars, the planet of action and desire, will be conjunct Uranus, the planet of upheaval and truth. This could cause your desires and goals to shift suddenly, as the result of a spontaneous insight or opportunity.
A strong burst of energy will fuel a newfound urge to follow your inner truth and abandon the status quo.
If you’ve been chasing a direction that really doesn’t serve you, or wasting your energy only doing what’s expected of you, continuing to do so will become unbearable over the coming days.
Right now, you need freedom, and won’t tolerate being held back or obstructed. You need space to use your energy in the way that works best for you, so you can pursue what you truly, deeply value.
Be aware, this conjunction can cause you to take revolutionary action. Sometimes powerful changes are necessary, just make sure you are truly pursuing change and not just reacting.
The new moon and Pluto in a challenging aspect to the Uranus and Mars makes for a potentially explosive week ahead. Mind your temper and don’t provoke others if you feel angry.
Instead, remember to breathe and allow any strong emotions to settle before making any big moves or taking action you might later regret.
Hang in there!
There’s a beautiful path unfolding for you, full of meaning and purpose, on the other side of this turbulent new moon.
You are loved.
