The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn sounds savage, like a shitty diagnosis or a humbling day in the arena.
Eclipses evoke subliminal anxiety and our imagination. The sign of Capricorn is associated with worldly goods, leadership or the poignant lack of it, time, business longevity, numbers, status, and mythic quests.
You can see how the combo is a bit nervy. It’s not a friend of flakes or corruption. Nor does it give up its secrets via a cheat-sheet or glib affirmations.
Put it in a broad context, for best results. This Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn references and echoes the themes in play between March 2015 and October 2016. That is when Uncle Pluto spent a lot of time at the 15° point of Capricorn, the degree of this Eclipse.
Not only that, March 20, 2015, was a doozie of a Solar Eclipse at 29 Pisces, the end of the Zodiac. Cosmic Doctor Chiron is currently in this zone, for extra resonance.
So this weekend’s New Moon is a super-amped cold-shower, birch scented, rejuvenation. Don’t lurk around wondering about what ‘might happen.” YOU Happen.
This Moon Is A Self-Determining, Ambitious Hustler
This Moon is a self-determining, ambitious hustler, relying on her hard-fought history and gut instincts. She is a firm ally to stoics, strivers, workers, pragmatists, money witches and practitioners of Earth Magic.
But the next several days are also a chance to properly understand the March of nearly four years ago and all the events/emotions that erupted with that month.
And, as Saturn + Pluto flank this Moon, it’s a precognitive glimpse of the epochal Saturn-Pluto conjunction in 2020.
Too weighty a perspective? It’s a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn – of course you need to approach it via the contemplation of broad swathes of time.
If you want to finesse any Capricorn energy, get over Time Phobia. But it’s especially the case with a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn. It’s a time for long memories, forward planning genius, and substantial new beginnings.
