29 DECEMBER 2016, CAPRICORN, Supermoon NO, Eclipse NO
Even though the calendar still shows 2016, this New Moon in Capricorn holds new energy for 2017. New Moons bring new beginnings, and when in Capricorn, it’s all about prioritising goals. Before starting the new, we thrive more if we review where we have been. This new moon helps us find the best bits of what did work in 2016 to take into 2017. Mars and Neptune are in Pisces bringing an unusual way to hone in on our goals – through resting, napping, daydreaming, meditating, slacking off and escaping. Our practical earthy Capricorn sides might feel frustrated by this creative, chaotic, scattered approach but connecting with heart, soul and intuition through relaxation and play could bring much-needed left-of-centre insights that positively light the path for the whole year ahead. An important alignment that stars throughout 2017 happens right at the time of this New Moon. The alignment is known as ‘Jupiter Opposite Uranus’. It has three pivotal connections – one is late December 2016 to late January 2017; the next is late February to late March 2017; and the third is late September to late October 2017. Jupiter opposite Uranus brings an urge to cut loose, break free and liberate ourselves from systems and goals. How can this be conducive to the practical goal-oriented Capricorn New Moon! We might even make better goals when we consider that this year life encourages us to find ways to safely (Capricorn) grow rapidly (Jupiter-Uranus) into living from the free self (Jupiter-Uranus) without throwing away what works within the conventional self (Capricorn). If your conservative, traditional self could take your wild, crazy self out to dinner, what would the two of you talk about as you plan the year ahead?
