On December 23rd at 2:17 AM PST the Sun and Moon join at 1 degree Capricorn 33 minutes. This is our second New Moon in Capricorn in 2022, last time was on January 2nd. Here we are to set up our early winter hopes and aspirations, coming right after the Winter Solstice and right before Christmas. The energies are peaking for plans for our career, recognizing our reputation, and what we have to share with our world.
Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth Sign. It rules the first month of Winter and leads the way to practical and necessary actions to survive. This Earth Sign is a grounded, no nonsense pursuer of making a mark in the world. It inspires fortitude and perseverance, like the glyph of the mountain goat that represents it. Plodding ever forward, sure footed is the best use of Capricorn's influence and energy. The planet Saturn rules this sign. Saturn is regarded as the taskmaster, elder, teacher through difficulties and restrictions. We are encouraged to break through our limitations with Saturns help.
On this occasion the Sun and Moon are square Jupiter at 0 degrees Aries. This can make for a bit of tunnel vision, being super conscious of what your needs and ambitions are, but with little patience; unconcerned with what others want. You’ll have big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. At this time you can tend to exaggerate, to promise more than is possible, and to misjudge through over-optimism. But if you keep your emotions in check, this can potentially be a superb time to dream up the next steps in your climb up the ladder of success.
Helping this along, Jupiter enters the sign of Aries on December 20th, after its sojourn in Pisces. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, growth, and generosity in the sign of Aries is very different. Going from the Water element of sensitivity and spirituality to the Fire element of passion and force, much more can be accomplished now. We are inspired to take a new look at our ambitions with more excitement and optimism. Again, the energies are supporting us as individuals; but what better place to start from? From the inside out.
Take the time to dream big, with courage and self esteem. You’re worth it! Access the power of all of these self centered signs :) no offense, just how I see it, and work up a plan to move ahead. Wherever you’ve had the inspiration to do something different, now is the time to plant the seed. Doesn’t have to happen overnight, remember the New Moon is a time for making wishes that you want to come true. Here on planet Earth it begins with a wish, and goes from there. Believe.
