Intuitive Astrology: January New Moon 2018
If you have been following along, you may have noticed that January has been an extremely busy month! It really seems that the heavens are putting on a show for us as we welcome in the new vibrations and new energy of the year.
The Capricorn New Moon on the 16-17th is no different, and is definitely going to be dazzling us with a line up of five celestial bodies by its side.
At the time of the New Moon, there will be a line up of the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto all in the sign of Capricorn. This rare alignment is known as a stellium.
Having a line up of so many planets indicates that this New Moon is going to bring a lot of earthy Capricorn energy for all of us to play with.
Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign which means that it holds the energy of leadership, hardwork, determination and groundedness.
Capricorn is represented by the mountain goat, and if you have ever seen a mountain goat, you would know that it is able to use its nimble feet to climb higher and perch itself in places that most other animals would not be able to get to.
This is a good way to describe the hardworking energy of Capricorn, and with so many planets, plus the Sun and Moon aligning in this constellation, we are all going to be able to make a leap of progress as we climb our own mountains.
The January New Moon energy is really going to help all of us to take a leap forward and to use our hard work, skill and knowledge to climb higher and reach further.
This is very ambitious energy that will really help all of us to move forward in the direction of our highest dreams and wishes.
This is the perfect time to take action in your life and begin making small, practical changes in order to bring more joy, abundance, love, success, and whatever other feel-good emotions you want into your life.
Capricorn is a very practical sign, so this is not necessarily about making bold, shocking moves in our lives (unless we feel called to do so), rather it is about making small yet effective shifts to get us closer to where we want to be.
For the last few years we have really had to focus on clearing and planning, but now we are getting a lot of support to actually put our plans into action.
January is one of the most action-focused months of the year, so use this energy to your advantage and don’t be afraid to push yourself a little higher.
While this line up of Capricorn planets is really going to help us find our ambition and strength, this New Moon has a soft, intuitive energy as well.
While this is a great time to take action and express yourself outwards, there is also this energy pulling us to go deeper within ourselves and to really connect to that heart center.
If you have been struggling in your relationships, or feeling stuck in this area, this New Moon may bring some new insights, or may help you to think about things in a different way.
If your are single, this New Moon could actually be the perfect time to put yourself out there to meet someone. If you are in a relationship, use this energy to plan a date night or to do something fun together.
If you are feeling a lack of hope when it comes to dating, use this New Moon energy to check in with yourself and see if what you are asking for is really aligned with the actions you have been taking.
This New Moon energy may also help you to click the reset button and allow you to clear away any baggage from past relationships.
The good thing about January’s New Moon is that it has a lot of energy, which means that you can use this energy to serve you in any way that you need.
Tune in to yourself and ask- What is something I could use support with? What would I like this New Moon to bring into my life?
New Moon’s are all about setting intentions and planting seeds for the future, so think about what you want to grow in your garden and give your wishes to the night sky.
There are such strong cosmic forces all through January and they are all on your side and there to support you.
Let the world know what you need, let the New Moon know what you need, and then open yourself to the guidance that follows.
Even though it doesn’t always feel like it, life is always on your side, you just have to learn to find the joy as you navigate the highs and lows of your very own mountain
