capricornThis is just a quick note to remind you about tomorrow’s powerhouse New Moon in Capricorn (3:15 AM Pacific) – you do not want to miss this intention-setting opportunity! A New Moon on January 1st is a rare event, and this is a particularly dramatic and ambitious lunation, featuring a Cardinal Grand Cross. The Sun and Moon conjoin with Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn, oppose Jupiter in Cancer, and square Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries.

The Capricorn New Moon wants you to clarify your commitments, consider your long-term goals, get strategic, make a plan, and be extremely practical and realistic about how you want to spend your time, energy and resources. Pluto, God/Goddess of the Underworld, the principle of death and rebirth, says: there might be something you need to let go of to create space for what you really want, and to regenerate your vitality. Pluto also wants you to align with your deeper soul mission, your core-level rather than ego-driven desires, and strategize accordingly.

The involvement of both Pluto and Uranus – both outer planets and therefore collective or transpersonal forces – in this New Moon also ask you to look at your individual choices within the bigger story of now. Friends, the astrology of 2014 is not f*ing around, and the New Moon on New Year’s Day is a big fat heads-up to get your shiznit together, get real, and get focused on the part that YOU (and only you) came here to play.

If you have a copy of your birth chart and some astro-technical know-how, you can get more insight where these energies are playing out by finding the house in your chart that contains 10 degrees of Capricorn.

For further information about this New Moon (’cause I don’t have time to write about it…), I recommend checking out: Kelley Rosano’s You Are A Master Creator, Amanda Painter’sΒ What Do You Know? (on Planet Waves), and Angela Rider’s New Year’s Resolutions Solution (for practical tips about setting intentions).

Wishing you a blessed 2014! with love and gratitude, Emily Trinkaus
