A new moon occurs December 21st in Capricorn, complete with the Saturnian essence of struggle for structure and growth.The new moon occurs just after the Winter Solstice and emanates the power of change by the constructs of deep desires which are provoked by rebellious groups or individuals who may not act according to divine guidance. I project this vision according to the profoundly telling dynamics of the chart of this new moon. There is so much emotional energy that surrounds this chart and it is straightforward in its message.
The moon occurs at 0 degrees of Capricorn and as we know, 0 degrees of any Cardinal sign initiates change that is to take place over a period of time. Uranus, the unexpected rebellious zealot, will station direct just before this new moon and send a powerful message out with new force as it engages Pluto in the continued square.This is a force to be recognized , as it opposes the North Node in Libra. This placement tells me that the disruptive outburst will not be in line with truth and will not occur at a high octave of conciousness.
Mars is also opposite Jupiter denoting a lack of grace and temperance in this confrontation. Fury will be an easy alternative for some. Pluto will also be engaged in its deepest desires with a Venus conjunction, promoting selfishness and manipulation even underlying so called "righteous" behaviors.
Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius (the people) and currently transiting the warrior sign of Aries, so in its opposition to the NN, we see groups attacking home and familial structure as part of its rebellion. As the NN is in Libra, government institutions, and foreign affairs will also be caught in the crossfire. Considering these aspects, I would expect more evil to come forward from perverse actions that are not based on harmony or truth.
Overzealous behaviors by a party or group of people who are out for right based upon false truths come to mind. This is the classic example of the fiery youth who is determined to undermine his parents even by false premise for hidden psychological reasoning that is not yet apparent even to himself. As he reaches forward to escape his emotions, fury is unleashed and not appropriately directed.
The Sabian symbol for this full moon is "An Indian chief takes charge of the tribe by the power of the assembled people." This is fortunate and states that despite the raging anger of a misdirected group, sound structures and organized institutions will support leadership in the deflection of unsound attacks of home and government. Mercury is near to the new moon giving structured forces the voice of opportunity despite the battles for change verses outdated modalities associated with deep psychological behaviors. Yet, as 0 degrees initiates change over time, we can expect a powerful two weeks following the new moon that will contain disruption met with temperance. As I type, I envision the King of Swords in tarot who will need to stand up to the people, by the people.
Personally, we will experience that restless call to change-that voice that is pushing us forward despite our stubborn ways. We may become so frustrated with old conflicts that we would be willing to act out in anger, to burn the bridge with our inner light. Yet, it is important that we seek guidance towards maintaining temperance. That is, that we realize the advantage of patience and structured behavior because the stars testify that mindset is truly to our advantage at this time. Neptune supports this moon and clear and immediate spiritual guidance has been bestowed upon the steadfast. Continue building the future methodically even while emotional outbursts exist around you. Aquarius and Aries may have a hard time maintaining peace during this new moon period but they would be wise to make their opinions known based upon the pillars of truth-not emotion. Cancer and Capricorn will continue their relationship adjustments. All cardinal signs will feel the impact of this new moon as the Cancer full moon on January 9th will reverberate the plight of family, women and children. These issues will underline all of the angst portrayed in this harrowing two week period. The new moon occurs in the secrets and illness sector of "the people" and so many may experience hormonal, thyroid, fertility, bone, eye and chronic disease related illnesses.
The USA chart has a Cancer sun, and we can expect opposition to continue in and outside of our homeland. Our allies may be apart of breaking news headlines also. I have noticed a trend in that the USA chart in suffering prior eclipses of this degree, has taken the energy in force on familial structure since the Cardinal Cross began forming in 08. As a whole, we have been personally and intimately affected in our relationships with those who are dear to us.
This moon is not unlike the "cardinal alerts" that I sometimes post on Facebook when the moon is crossing the cardinal degrees that are so sensitive right now. Still, this moon appears at a strategic degree and at a time just before the last Pluto/Uranus squares when Universal energies will push our emotions to the brink especially if change is resisted. However, this moon cautions us to work within structure to bring about change rather than destroying our chances for change to progress by negative action. That exact change will finally happen for most in 2015 if initiated since 2008. We will have come full circle in our deepest psychological changes that have been born of one of the most profound planetary influences of our era.
I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and may the power of Christ conciousness excel in your life!
