The astrology of the first New Moon of the year – which is a Solar Eclipse to boot - is very clear. It is about sustainability, stability, and truthfulness. Anything that doesn't fit into your life anymore will go in the next 6 months!
Power in the house
A Solar Eclipse between Saturn and Pluto is per se extremely powerful. In Capricorn, the sign associated with life structures and principles, it`s twice as strong. At the latest in February, when Saturn reaches the degree of the Solar Eclipse, we will feel the full effect - you can assume that at least one important life situation will change drastically until this summer.
The New Moon takes place only a few hours before Uranus changes direction. This adds an explosive, unexpected and revolutionary element to the already very strong transformative energies. In economics and politics everything is possible in the next 6 months; unforeseen moves, power plays, or sudden changes to heretofore stable situations.
In the private sphere we sit on the ejector seat; those who do not voluntarily plan, clean up and create structures that are good for them, will get an involuntary boost from outside. This could be a sudden layoff, an unexpected separation, or a family problem that takes more time than expected.
Venus is on the very last degree of Scorpio during the New Moon; a difficult position. On the one hand, it shows we still have to digest the consequences of last year's relationship turmoil. Emotional baggage can still depress us, even if we were able to shake off or heal a lot of it at the beginning of the year. Perhaps it was not love, but financial issues that posed a problem; further sharp fluctuations on the stock market are possible. With both love and money, a kind of subtle discomfort could remain with us for a while.
Off the Deep End
Yet at the same time, 29 degrees of Scorpio holds a powerful magic and mystery. It`s old soul territory for sure, asking us one more time to dig deep in love, to not be afraid of those slings and arrows, nor dark realisations, that sometime emerge with passion. It asks us to burn away the dross and reconnect to the true, uncompromisingly loving nature of our heart. In this way, we can capture the essence of our soul-journey of the last months and take its wisdom with us into the next two Capricorn years.
Build it from Scratch
2019/2020 is all about creating new structures appropriate to the current state of your life. You will need this depth of experience in love and self-worth to take the right steps. To help further, 2019 also brings a lot of help from teachers, discussions, insights and compassion to get you on the right track.
The New Moon already indicates these special aspects between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. This year we will get unique possibilities to completely change our world view and what we think we know about ourselves for the better. So take everything that happens as a learning opportunity. This solar eclipse wants us to grow up. This requires courage and discipline. Go for it!
Happy New Moon!
