Capricorn New Moon
The Capricorn New Moon is exact at 5:31 PM PST this afternoon. Capricorn Moon indicates that reserved, or even repressed emotions, and a sense of duty dominates the inclinations of the heart. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, whose purview is death, separation, inhibition, and karma. This Capricorn New Moon is one of the strongest triggers for the waning Uranus/Pluto square that we will have for some time. The New Moon is at 19.13° Capricorn, Uranus is at 16.39° Aries, and Pluto is at 15.21° Capricorn. Newly retrograde Jupiter is making a helpful trine from 23.13° Virgo. And Chiron in Pisces, at 17.46 degrees is forming a tight sextile to today’s Capricorn New Moon. Uranus/Pluto in combination with the Moon often means change by force; with the Sun, a breakdown often occurs. If there is a necessary change in your life that you have been avoiding, then this Capricorn New Moon may bring about an ultimatum that you cannot ignore. The universe wants you to move on and progress in your life. The lucky trine from Jupiter and the magical influence of Chiron will insure that this change happens easily, despite the current Mercury Retrograde.

Today is a day to get serious and honest with yourself. Capricorn wants the facts. The recent Venus/Saturn conjunction asks you to reassess your values and make some hard decisions. Tomorrow morning brings a brief Void Moon from 9:39 AM when the Moon conjoins Mercury for some serious thinking. Until 12:23 PM when the Moon enters Aquarius. Aquarius always lightens things up and brings optimism into the picture. However, this Aquarius Moon is headed for an unfortunate encounter with Mars. Moon square Mars is exact at 7:31 PM sparking emotional outbursts or at least a burst of cleaning your home.
