The symbol for Capricorn is a Sea Goat. A mountain Goat with a fish’s tail. Capricorns are certainly wiley old goats but in a nice way. Never will you have a more reliable friend, but when they’re done they’re done. You’ll get complete honesty from a Capricorn, and you’ll observe their determination to stoically climb to the top of their current mountain. They relish hard work and often from a young age have a maturity well beyond their years.
And so January begins with this somewhat serious back to work energy. And how will the planets affect the cosmic weather ?
I feel that January starts off with a slightly low key vibe as people reflect on where and what we’ve all been through in the last 2 years. The cosmic climate urges us all towards more inner growth, so that we can initiate the necessary healing we all need, and the awareness that the old ways don’t serve us well anymore.
We have a New Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd of January. This brings opportunities to start the year as we mean to go on, to embrace the opportunities for new growth to let go of traditions that don’t sit well in the 21st century. Capricorn gives the chance to build new more appropriate ways of conducting business’s, and to work with the ongoing challenges of the Saturn in Aquarius square to Uranus in Taurus. We’re still in orb of this powerful energy. Don’t wait for life to shake you up with unexpected events that put you on the right path. Shake yourself up so that you have some control over the direction you’re heading.
Mercury, our planet of communication, moves retrograde on the 14th in Aquarius, so expect internet outages and be careful to check messages and emails before you click send. As our words may get misunderstood. Mercury moves retrograde into Capricorn on the 27th and does not turn direct until February 4th. Venus our planet of value, relationships and money also moves direct in Capricorn on the 29th. Mars also moves into Capricorn on the 25th. So Capricorn is hosting a stellium of cosmic energy emphasising our collective need to re look at the way our governments and big institutions run themselves. Pluto is still imploring us to change and discard the old ways of doing things, and to shake up the hierarchy within these establishments. So January could see various CEO,s having to face hard truths as well as people in positions of power.
Uranus in Taurus goes direct on the 18th this ending a cycle of unexpected stops and starts to various situations. Whilst Uranus retraces his steps we may experience economic volatility again, and the Green Agenda back centre stage. But with 5 outer planets finally moving direct, it will have more of a feel of a train gathering speed in its direction towards a better future.
This months Full Moon in Cancer on the 17/18th of January, is opposite the Sun conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.
This reinforces the Capricorn energies and a powerful male may step down, or step up. It’s certainly a full moon of a change in status. Misleading information could be the cause of this.
The North node moves into Taurus on the 19th, with the South Node in Scorpio. So the energy emphasis for the next 18 months approximately will be in these 2 fixed signs. Fixed energy means we’re less likely to go with the flow, by allowing the Divine to guide us, so rather than sitting back and allowing potentially dramatic change to nudge us onto our correct path. We need to be mindful and look for the signs from the universe to help us move forward with our life direction. Trusting your intuitive gut feeling is the way forward with this energy.
Finally with Jupiter in his new home of Pisces, watch out for problems with flooding or leaks. And the positive side is a collective sense of awakening to the innumerable opportunities that are possible to work with in the coming months.
