New Moon in Capricorn – January 11, 2024
We continue along in the process of Pluto transiting from 29º Capricorn into the new paradigm of innovative Aquarius on January 20. Mercury is picking up steam as it squares diffuse Neptune (which you’ll feel all week), interfering with left-brain processing and slowing us down.
Jan 8 – Mercury square Neptune. Factual info may get lost in a fog, as confusion and miscommunications are possible, so rely on your Inner Guidance for direction (yes-no). Use email for documentation whenever possible for backup and support. Mercury square Neptune is nonlinear, inviting you to dream, be creative and use your intuition and spiritual practices to relax in consciousness and arrive at answers experientially if you have questions that aren’t data-driven.
You can’t get all the answers to life’s questions with your mind. There’s a higher dimensional space – and that’s where this is. Be in nature, bask in silence and let your nervous system relax and reconnect with the natural world. This is fertile ground for messages from the higher realms. Use this energy to envision your soul’s desires or journal stream of consciousness writing and see what comes through. This writing allows you to channel your unconscious – perfect for creating intentions and gaining clarity.
Jan 9 – Sun trine Uranus – This is the energy of liberation, freedom and stimulation – you are inspired to do something different, go in an alternative direction or make a change that is enlivening for you. This is especially powerful if you feel stuck or trapped and need a release. Honor your Authentic Self and pay attention to your inner promptings; you have no idea how life-changing they may be!
Jan 9 – Mars sextile Saturn – Clarify your priorities, make decisions and use this highly productive energy to focus on what needs to happen for the long-term. This action-structure duo supports plans, projects and practical efforts that require commitment and dedicated effort. And this goes perfectly with the Sun-Uranus aspect, as Mars-Saturn can support or facilitate any changes you want to make in practical ways.
Jan 11 – New Moon in Capricorn on Jan 11 @ 3:58am PST. After the New Moon you can set plans in motion and take actions toward your intentions for the coming year that will create your foundation. This is a powerful new beginning for 2024, as Capricorn is the sign of commitment, structure, discipline, your Inner Authority and things that last. Release what is no longer needed or working, align with your integrity and get real about what needs attention. This is when you decide to fulfill a vow to your Self (after all, you are your life partner :)).
Capricorn is a practical earth sign, which speaks to your physical reality – and the New Moon trines Uranus (change), so this can pertain to your body, your health, your habits, your location or your home. Maybe you’re ready for a change in one or more of these areas. Mars (action) in harmony with Saturn (structure) and Jupiter (expansion) indicates that they are all working together to create stability and a strong container that you can rely on. Opportunities, possibilities and change!
Venus trines Chiron on the New Moon, offering the potential for heart-healing, compassion and feeling, rather than living from the mind. Lovingkindness is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and others. Open your heart and notice what blocks you from receiving, loving, being loved, being well paid for your work, or feeling good about who you are (not just for what you do). Then commit to taking actions to correct whatever is blocking the flow of love from coming in or out of your heart, if needed.
This is an extremely fertile New Moon; all planets involved are making aspects to others, creating an abundance of productive energy. All planets are in Direct motion except for Uranus, which will go Direct on Jan 27, so it won’t be long before the pace will pick up and we’ll be flying!
That’s why it’s a good idea to get your ducks in a row as much as possible now. Use the New Moon in Capricorn energy to serve your well being and to prepare for going forward. It is my belief and experience that you don’t do things until you’re ready. If you know you “should” be doing something, but you don’t, it’s probably because you’re not ready on some (inner) level. I suggest finding support to help you get ready.
It will be very helpful to focus on your intentions for 2024 or for the near future. They have more power than you can imagine, so want the best for yourself. Remember the truth of who you are – what you have to offer, to contribute and would like to participate in.
We will be moving into a new world that will welcome your gifts, strengths and talents – and it will be very different than the world we have today. It won’t happen right away, but we are in preparation mode, so I remind you that you are here now, on purpose, to fulfill a role that you are perfect for. Sit with that and contemplate…
The only limitations you have regarding your Self and your future are in your mind. The more you envision a bigger picture for yourself, the more possible it is – and this is in the context of who you came here to be.
The world will miss your needed contributions if you play small. Please don’t minimize who you are and why you’re here. This is your soul contract. Namaste.
