January’s new Moon marks the beginning of Eclipse season as the Capricorn new Moon doubles as a partial solar eclipse and new lunar cycle. Solar eclipses are powerful moments where the Sun, Moon, and Earth are aligned creating a blocked view of the Sun. January 5th’s new Moon is a partial solar eclipse meaning that the sun will be partially obscured, making this a subtle visible phenomena to beings around the world.
With the solar eclipse new moon occurring in the final Earth sign of Capricorn, this lunar event will mark a new beginning for our long term goals and ventures. Capricorn is the 10th sign of the Zodiac and it represents our inner abilities to interact and connect with the public through our work, social status, material resources/assets, and strong family foundations. Capricorn is a naturally mature sign, especially with its native planetary ruler being serious Saturn. This energy will directly effect our professional life, desires to move ahead, long term goals and investments, and home/domestic affairs.
The energy of the solar eclipse is not instant. The weeks and months following a solar eclipse and new Moon build up to the grand changes and new opportunities that are manifesting as we speak. Many of us may be focusing on re-working old goals and old projects, Home repairs, relocating, long term investments and financial ventures, community building, and repairing familial relationships and responsibilities.
With today’s planetary aspects focusing on Venus, relationships will be a major focal point in the next six months. Create new ways to negotiate, communicate, and cooperate. We all have desires, needs, and expectations. The magic of humanity is learning how to merge our differences to create a more dynamic whole.
Venus in Scorpio’s inconjuction with Uranus Rx in Aries creates healing moments for us to walk through. New moons are dark periods. Many of us are concerned and focused on what we wish to see and not what is now. January 5th’s new moon is no different. With Venus contesting Uranus, relationships may suffer from a difference of opinion and intentions. Arguments as simple as where you want to eat for dinner could throw us for a loop if we aren’t grounded and aware. Familial or professional obligations may keep you from what you personally want to do but find patience here. Capricorn is not a heartless sign. Capricorn does believe in achieving results before play and you should incorporate this mentality into your daily thinking. If you feel pulled in too many directions take a second to pause and ask yourself what are you seeking in this [singular] moment? Sometimes we get so frazzled in our daily lives that we forget what we were even trying to achieve in the first place.
Lastly, Venus will form a Trine with Chiron in Pisces emphasizing a supportive energy to heal our old ways. It’s okay to change and to shed. Sometimes we forget that we change too. We forget that even we have to reintroduce ourselves to our self. Don’t be afraid to rip off the familiar and move deeper into the unknown. Darkness is only frightening if you don’t carry the light, and we are all light, we are all light.
