Early today, Venus sextiles Chiron, and good energy is
with us for healing, particularly our hearts. The Sun enters Capricorn this
evening, and the Moon leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn at 8:26 PM EST.
Within minutes, the New Moon occurs (8:36 PM EST). This comes extremely
close to the beginning of the sign, and symbolizes a new beginning in the cardinal earth sign of
Capricorn. It's a time during which we can focus on some of the
constructive traits of the sign of the Goat (tenacious, resourceful, disciplined, wise,
ambitious, prudent, constant) and consider how to positively
incorporate these qualities into our lives. Now, we can focus on
practical and attainable long-term goals, work on developing
maturity and common sense, prepare for the future, make
commitments and recognize responsibilities, and nurture our
dreams in a realistic manner. With this potent Capricorn energy, we have the
chance to create some serious order in our lives.
It's time to make
some solid plans, and to set the stage for reaping
the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or
big as they may be. One of Capricorn's "lessons" is acceptance of the concept that reasonable
boundaries and rules actually do offer us freedom--freedom from worry and chaos,
for example. Setting goals for ourselves allows us to focus on what really
matters. Uranus turns direct today after months of retrograde motion. Uranus
energy hangs heavy in the air, and "all things Uranus" become strong themes. As
Uranus gains speed in the next few weeks, our urge to express ourselves
uniquely, to take some chances or risks, to rebel, to listen to our own
instincts, and to stir up change are re-awakened.
