A Fresh Start

The New Moon in Capricorn dovetails nicely with the advent of the New Year, offering the possibility of a bona fide fresh start. This new start only comes if we’re willing to act on our own authentic ambitions. Capricorn is a serious sign, requiring first the solitude of a monk, and second, the execution skills of an ace project manager.

Societal Dharma

Every spiritual tradition insists that we look inward to find the doorway into authenticity. From this profound self-knowledge arises the clarity that guides us to fulfill our societal dharma. The symbol of Capricorn speaks to this like no other, for Capricorn exemplifies the mastering of solitude in order to meet your role in society with maximum integrity. The word integrity itself, a trusty Capricorn keyword, means aligning your inner knowledge with your outer action. Take advantage of this New Moon to temporarily withdraw, examine your principles, and strive toward higher integrity in your actions.

Listen Well, Speak Wisely

This New Moon covers some of the same territory that ordinarily peaceful Venus re-treads during her retrograde period. Through undertaking this shadow journey, Venus seeks to deepen and balance the way we relate. Look to your most important relationships for clear messages, which appear when you truly listen. Note that your words carry the power to cut deep, so speak wisely. The New Moon’s connection with game-changer Uranus suggests that the evolution of our culture depends on our awakening as individuals.
