The new moon is in Capricorn on January 5 (7:28 pm, CDT) and shortly thereafter, a solar eclipse transpires (7:41 pm, CDT). Pluto and Saturn fuse with the sun and moon, a powerful catalyst for re-birth.
The process of falling apart occurs in tandem with re-building and fortifying new structures. The roads, the buildings, and our government are going through a radical makeover. This could be applied to our personal lives if it triggers sensitive points in our natal chart. The toxins and poisons in our culture are purged as the collective shadow is faced. We feel our way into the territory of the unknown, a daunting task for a culture focused on the finite and bottom line.
The first new moon and eclipse of 2019 spurs the urge to push off and sprint in a new direction. Ample energy fuels ideas into action! And yet a rule-bound approach slows the process down, demanding accountability. If the demands of a results-oriented paradigm get too heavy, it’s up to us to create the boundaries we need to function and stay healthy in this pressure-cooker technology driven culture.
That which is buried deep underground decays to enrich the soil. What new formations will start to emerge from underground?
To create boundaries where needed, consider carrying a piece of prehnite. Prehnite is excellent at helping us set up energetic and especially empathic boundaries. For protection during times of change, consider adding Eye of Horus’ Dragon’s Blood oil to your routine. Dragon’s Blood helps add power to our energetic work while adding a strong protective element. To find joy in the dark of winter, consider lighting either the Joy incense or Hope incense from Shoyeido’s Angelic line. These Japanese incense blends are subtle, easy to light, and help provide a lighter, brighter energy to any atmosphere they’re burned in.
