Taking Over of New Moon in Capricorn
The New Moon brings together the Sun and Moon in the same section of the sky, causing the Moon to appear dark from our perspective on Earth. It represents the starting point of a new Lunar cycle, bringing our Soul’s Power (Sun) and our deeper Mind and Feeling nature (Moon) together. Out of this connection, we are invited to plant a seed of intention and action for a new cycle of growth.
Capricorn is an Earth sign that is ruled by Saturn. Saturn teaches us control and commitment by exposing us to the impermanence of life. Everything will eventually end, and things that are not consistently developed over the long term will not have a chance to survive. So Saturn teaches us that we must be willing to do practical work in the world in order to put what we have learned into action and succeed.
As an Earth Sign, Capricorn is materially oriented and focused on practical, grounded material success. And Saturn teaches us that we must be willing to do practical work in the world in order to put what we have learned into action and succeed.
Capricorn is also oriented towards protection. It is often looking to avoid problems and can be a great problem solver that is able to avoid and remove obstacles to success.
The Influence and Effects
The New Moon in Capricorn begins a cycle with themes of committing to goals of success. And in order to succeed at the goals we have, we must also face the tangible fears of the world in order to overcome them and develop our capacity to commit and develop determination in succeeding.
This New Moon is taking place in the Nakshatra of Shravana, which emphasizes the need to listen so that we can grasp and understand the world around us and the situation we find ourselves in. This listening include the willingness to hear the views of others with bias. And it is also the ability to listen to our own inner wisdom and guidance. When we do these things, we are able to organize these deeper perspectives in wisdom and ensure that our goals and commitments are truly worth pursuing.
The potential challenge of this Nakshatra placement is that if we don’t invite listening with the intention of seeking truth, that we may fall into gossip or allow our perceptions to be controlled by public opinion, instead of from the Still Silent voice within.
