The new moon in Capricorn at the end of the calendar year sets us into motion for the new year. We are adapting to the need for release before accepting the new ideas and changes that we are to meet in the next year.
The new moon conjunction with Mercury retrograde forms a stellium that may leave us feeling confused as we try to sort through the backwards concepts that catch us off guard. Adding to this stellium is the connections to Mars and Neptune in Pisces. Our imagination may take us to feelings of despair or to creative new heights. It all depends on how we choose to manifest these energies. We need to carefully sort through our feelings and try not to make assumptions about how others may be feeling.
There are others planets working together to cause feelings of progress and/or challenges. First, let's look to Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Uranus. These four planets are forming a Cradle formation that has the potential to help us organize our projects and plan for our future. With Uranus transiting retrograde, some of the harsh influences are diminished, but still has the potential to push us to explore and take risks. The second pattern is tied into the cradle as a Cardinal T-square from Pluto in Capricorn squared to Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Libra. We continue to feel challenged by authority, or by someone else's concept of power over us. We need to come to terms with how we want to deal with this power. Some of us will push back while others of us will quiety adapt or distance ourselves to avoid the confrontations. Finding the right path for ourselves helps us to feel successful.
There are more planets in feminine receptive with this new moon, that helps us to approach the New Year events with patience and compassion. That does not mean we will back down, however, for what we feel is right. The planets are fairly well balanced with the elements, helping us to be more decisive and logical while dealing with the challenges we face. However, there are six planets in Cardinal quality signs that can cause us to push back against the situations where we feel as though others are not listening to our needs.
This new moon is going to be an interesting and intriguing transition for the new year. Happy New Year, to everyone.
