Today, the sun, the moon and mercury align, creating an inspired, new story. While an earthy capricorn new moon has a stabilizing effect, the likeliness of the unexpected is just as much a part of this new moon. (and the rest of the year tbh)
The structures that we must exist within are necessary for us to participate within our families, jobs, society. Rules, boundaries and even the path we walk are a structure that we must partake. A new moon in capricorn gives the opportunity to update those structures. As this new moon illuminates the height of Mercury in it’s retrograde, this is the moment of clarity. There’s more information about the retrograde in my last blog post.
The exact moment that the sun and moon align, that moment of the sky is the story being created for the whole lunar month. However this moment tonight in the sky also incapsulates themes for the entire year.
Here’s why this new moon is loaded and sets the tone for 2017:
Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter-
Saturn has the ability to crystallize, and bring something into reality.
Uranus is the ability to be inspired, and have total, creative freedom.
Jupiter creates opportunity, and spaciousness.
These three planets have been building closer to alignment and are all creating a bunch of feels for everyone.
Anytime Uranus is in the mix, it will be unexpected, volatile even. So for any type of repressed feeling that has been held in, the cracks may have already been exposed and something may be ready to come out. It’s important to remember that the theme behind any sudden change is for the sake of inspiration. To break free of monotony and remain new and alive.
So within the context of a stable capricorn moon, there is a feeling of identifying our bounds and pushing the limits further. Mangling our way, creating more space for inspiration and also having a grounded support. Being authentic is a must, the planets are supporting you!
