New Moon in Capricorn, December 28/29 2016-Manifesting dreams by releasing all but the authentic you
What an unusual holiday season! How is it going with you and yours this time of celebration? This is a time of new seeds as the New Moon approaches as it is at every new moon. Do you have intentions for the time period and also the coming New Year? Where will it find you in 2017? Same old same old? Or will you take that leap that you have been pondering since the beginning of this past year? And have you let go of the many things that no longer are pertinent to you like grudges, rivalries, past patterns, habits, fears and old behavior? Just wondering how you intend to move forward with any negativity holding you back. The energy that has been coming in has been affecting many of you and you cannot figure out why or what is happening. This energy will continue to get stronger because it is here to wake you up. Yes, that is correct. So, if you are still holding onto the past, do not. Get yourself into a peaceful place and stop bellyaching about who, what, when where and why anything happened in the past to you? Take a look at it and you know what, let it go. Seriously, it is important. It is a very positive thing to do. Try it. I have and have been successful at the releasing of the old.
Odds and ends of the world are beyond my interest anymore. It is as if it is all a bunch of gobbledygook and who cares. It is filled with lies and deceptions so deep it makes my head spin. Oh, yes, there are things that would be good to take a look and assess before going off the deep end. Many famous personalities have passed on this year. They probably got fed up with the craziness- George Michael, Carrie Fisher, of course, Prince, Alan Thicke and a whole lot more through the year. Violence in Germany is out of control. Another earthquake occurred this time in Chile. Snopes has a prostitute checking whether the facts are accurate. And the best I leave for last that President Obama has signed a bill two days before Christmas that makes it illegal to have an alternative news website. Does that mean a blogging website can be taken down? Life is getting really weird.
And now the New Moon in Capricorn arrives on Thursday, December 29, 2016 in 7 degrees 59’ at 1:53am EST, 6:53am GMT and 10:53pm PST (December 28, 2016). The Sun is also in Capricorn at the same degree. This New Moon can go either way. It is conjunct Mercury Retrograde and sextile fixed star Skat. In sextile to Skat in Pisces it can help to bring good fortune to you especially if you worked hard to get it. It is also sextile Mars in Pisces. Capricorn is the mountain goat. It may be slightly slow in movement yet very little gets by the goat. So what exactly does that mean for you with this New Moon in Capricorn? Well, since it wishes to take everything to the limit it is about leaping within and putting every bit of your mind, spirit and body knowing that it is time to address your mission in life. Are you ready to do this?
Capricorn is an Earth sign so it is grounded and it brings that to you. How can you take the goals you have and fulfill them? One step at a time is the best way since the darkest days are passing and setting them now will bring those dreams and goals to fruition as the light of day becomes longer. Since this New Moon takes place as the old year is ending, it is a time of introspection as to where you have come from, what when on this past year and where in the world you are heading. Some of you have found the 2016 year a total conundrum in more ways than one. I found it fascinating since I relocated with many delays in the process and so many asking me why I chose where I did. The questions were the strangest yet on some level they opened my eyes to more than was obvious. Something occurred in my life that turned my thinking around and what a pleasant surprise when I really found my flaws and chose to release them. How different I feel now. So, yes, it was a chore at times, yet it was growth-producing in such positive ways.
This New Moon may bring some regeneration to you depending how it affects your natal blueprint since it is widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn also. As I mentioned it is sitting with Mercury Retrograde. That makes it very interesting since retrograde motion is about revising, revisiting, renewing, revamping and you pick whatever “re” word you like and that’s what it is about also. What can you bring forward with you into the New Year? What will you need to release? Did you learn from your mistakes of this past year? It is time to take a good look at what fears you still hold, what failures kept you back? Then once you do that you can take a leap forward in the long-term. New Moon in Capricorn conjunct retrograde Mercury is about perseverance and once it climbs that mountain it excels. You basically have to go back to move forward in order for those intentions to take hold. And it is important to stay in the present more than ever as you do this. Being authentic is part of the process. Say what you truly mean but watch your words. Keep in mind that encouraging your loved ones is a big item now.
Some other aspects include Jupiter opposite Uranus. And there it is right in front of you an opportunity of a lifetime. Will you even recognize it? Will you even choose to do anything with it? I hope you do. Remember not to sign anything until Mercury goes direct on January 8, 2017 and to tell you the truth I would wait until around the 13th of January.
What is your most passionate desire regarding your move forward, your goal? Take action upon one goal. The Fixed Star Skat in 9 degrees Pisces sextiles New Moon in Capricorn. That tells me that since Skat is a very favorable star it is about a wish. Is there something that you truly wish in your life? Then Skat will help you get those hopes and wishes if you really deserve them. Since Mars and Neptune are also conjunct Skat and sextile the New Moon in Capricorn it tells you that if you have kept your life running smoothly in many ways then you can manifest your dreams. And on top of that these aspects give you a feeling of romance and sensuality so if you are looking for that dream prince/princess then you never know they just might show up. To help the process overall those inner demons need to be let go. Banish them.
The most intensely affected Sun signs and personal planets are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn at 3-11 degrees. Birthdays affected are March 23-March 31; June 23-July 1; September 25- October 2 and December 23-31. Stay positive!!!
I pulled an Animal Powers card and it is the Horse for strength. Horse will help you with stamina. The Horse meditation will help you move forward on your path.
“Horse spirit, please come to me. I thank you for leaving the freedom of the plains behind. To lighten my load with your strong body and helpful way. And take me to far foo places faster than I could ever go. You help me learn the ways of others and teach them mine. You help me jump over all obstacles on my journey. Your selfless service is an inspiration to all beings.”
