Hello lovely ones, happy holidays and happy new moon in Capricorn!
The last new moon of 2016 takes place at 10.53pm PST on Wednesday 28th December and falls at 8 degrees of Capricorn.
This is such a powerful new moon to help each of us, no matter what our sign, to consciously co-create 2017, in all areas of our lives (regardless of where Capricorn falls in each of our unique birth charts).
Capricorn is an earth sign ruled by cold, stern Saturn – the cosmic taskmaster who holds us accountable and forces us to be responsible, but also rewards our efforts and assists us in manifesting.
In the natural zodiac Capricorn rules the 10th house, governing matters such as status, authority, fame, success, ambition and achievement and traditional socialsystems.
Soulstrology says that the reason why this new moon is so important is because powerful, destructive, transformative Pluto is currently half way through his transit of Capricorn.
In 2008 Pluto entered Capricorn and in his true destructive style brought the credit crunch and the near destruction of the entire international banking system.
Pluto unearthed many of the shady practices that lay beneath the surface of the banking system and in doing so destroyed some of those institutions, many of which had been around for hundreds of years.
Since then powerful Pluto has continued with his unearthing of the dark foundations of many (outdated) traditional social structures. This has resulted in the slow unraveling and destruction of many of those systems and the aftermath of chaos, conflict and uncertainty.
But we all know that in truth chaos precedes great change.
At this halfway point of the Pluto in Capricorn cycle it can be easy to be disheartened, to allow the negativity of the seeming chaos and destruction to overwhelm us.
However Soulstrology says that we must not allow ourselves to be drawn into the darkness.
Instead Soulstrology says we must view many of the current events occurring around the world (and/or in our own lives) as being the darkness before the dawn, the necessary destruction that is required for creation.
At this midpoint of the Pluto in Capricorn transit, we are at the nadir, but from here on we will rise up once again, and create what is based on solid, real, soulful foundations and create what is powerful and empowers ALL of mankind.
Mark my words when stern Saturn moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn at the end of 2017 and slowly catches up with Pluto, there will be huge karmic ramifications globally for those individuals and institutions who are not based on solid, soulful foundations, who have held onto power without true purpose and who have not served the greater good.
More on this another time… but for now let us turn to 2016, a year which has been difficult for many, has seen the grim reaper run riot, and even for those of us who have had many miracles and blessings, has been overshadowed by much of the collective darkness.
In numerology 2016 was universally a 9 year. A complex, tough year of karma, completion and endings.
2017 in numerology is universally a 1 year; a fresh new cycle, a time for planting the seeds which will blossom and bear fruit, not only over the next year but over the next nine year cycle.
As Soulstrology reminds us, this takes us to the completion of the Pluto in Capricorn cycle, and to the powerful rebirth that is taking place in the Capricorn ruled areas in the natural zodiac AND the Capricorn ruled parts of our unique natal charts.
With all of the above in mind, how can we best utilize this new moon in Capricorn?
In perfect cosmic synchronicity this new moon is conjunct (blended with) mercury who is currently retrograde and will be for the first week of the new year.
Thus, this new moon is offering us the perfect opportunity to RE-THINK all the Capricorn related natural zodiac themes in our lives – what is our ambition, what does success or status really mean to us? Are we seeking certain goals for the right reasons or in our review of our goals, do we need to redefine what our goals are and therefore reset them? What systems are in place in our lives that are based on tradition (and habit) but perhaps do not truly serve our best interests?
When looking at the Capricorn ruled parts of our charts and therefore lives, can we conduct this review using both our heads and hearts. Capricorns are known for being logical and pragmatic but often at the expense of their (or others) hearts and emotions.
How can we combine both pragmatism and the calling of our hearts and souls to allow what may have been destroyed in our lives to ‘die’ without judgment or attachment, trusting fully that what we can go forwards and co-create is truly in our best interests and for the highest good.
And in turn we can experience success beyond our wildest dreams and be truly happy, simply by rethinking, redefining and recreating our goals and paths.
Each of us are in a constant conversation with the universe.
That’s why it is often called the YOUniverse.
YOU are creating your existence. If you do not like your reality or if your ambitions, or even your achievements are leaving you feeling less than truly fulfilled and whole, it is time to allow for creative destruction and to consciously co-create what you, or rather your higher self, truly desires.
With the new moon conjunct Mercury and sextile (a positive aspect) both Mars and Neptune we have the opportunity to not only rethink and reset ourselves (Mercury) but also to have the intuitive, creative and soulful inspiration (Neptune) and the drive, ambition and energy (Mars) to actually manifest our conscious intentions.
At this new moon avoid going on autopilot with your old manifesting lists, but instead to sit quietly, conduct your review, make the necessary revisions and to allow what needs to end to end, which in turn will allow you to plant the seeds to welcome the arrival of your true destiny which may surpass your greatest dreams!
Be bold and consciously co-create a brave new world for yourself, which in turn helps elevate the collective consciousness and will one day create a new paradigm for our world.
I am wishing you all a considered, creative, and powerful new moon.
