Finesse The Solar Eclipse New Moon In Capricorn

Filed in New Moons, Capricorn

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn sounds savage, like a shitty diagnosis or a humbling day in the arena.

But you can finesse this. It is a major theme in the current Horoscopes, of course. (If you want my take on it in your individual natal energies, check out Power Moons).

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.

Wow. The eclipse from 15 you’re referencing was on my Pisces sun. This eclipse is directly on my IC, where Pluto was in that time period. The line about getting better understanding of that time period is resonant.

Well, here we go friends. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers: New moon, Sun, Saturn conjunct natal Sun, Ascendant AND Pluto. And just to keep things interesting: Transiting Venus conjunct natal Saturn in my Scorpio 10th house.

Will I wake up tomorrow a garden goat or Wonder Woman? It’s a choice. I choose WW.

Happy, healthy and abundant New Year to everyone! Cheers, DC.

No matter how much I wreak my brain: I cannot recall a single significant thing from March 2015. I actually thing is was a super dull period of my life. I remember it being supposed to be a big deal but I recall that nothing significant happened. So I hope it’s not linked to that in any way. I am more interested into the earth vibe: Uranus in Taurus and Chiron in Aries cannot restart soon enough if you ask me. Though I believe that the closure from 2011 was that I have now “conquered” (in true Aries style) the… Read more »

I’va had the most awful 2011 and 2013. But aside from skin rushes and and anxiety and huge amount of loneliness it still hurts to recall, 2015 was the dullest year ever.

About to have a milestone birthday and I always have time phobia, I am not sure why but I have been conscious of time passing since I was small. Maybe it’s being a Piscean and being on my ‘last life’.

I keep coming back to this post because I’m in a tailspin about dating and I’m trying to talk myself into being more open but emotionally abusive ex (who I met in March 2015 after moving across country) is very much on my mind. The idea of being emotionally vulnerable with anyone, especially the super rational Scorpio Im seeing, is giving me anxiety. Like to the point of tears.

MissDeeMM Member
MissDee

Well then don’t. I know it gets lonely sometimes, but I don’t think that “staying open” is actually possible as a rational choice. You will be open when the time comes. I’d seek help (therapist) about abusive ex – that is if you already haven’t of course – and give it time to heal.

Today I’m leaving hospital, I can’t do this environment anymore. I’ve become exhausted from providing emotional support to patients and being a fill in nurse due to inadequate staffing levels. I’ve declined and asserted myself enough to know that what I need is community support and a reconnection with the church I was raised in. I’m not sure how this will go but I need to go this way. This was the offer I had some 10 years ago, back then I returned to my home with my former partner and I further deteriorated. I’m sure I’ll see the reflections… Read more »

The Oracle just advised me to get a Scorpio onside and things improve radically. I think I only know one Scorpio at the moment. He’s the reason I’ve been pestering the Oracle lately… And the only one I haven’t been able to charm, and I mean charm in the best possible way – as in talk to them because I super like them as yummy interesting humans – because I really like (almost all) Scorps.
So how the fuq do you get a difficult Scorpio onside? My intuition says, “you don’t.”
Any tips….. warmly appreciated

Yes! As a Scorp, I can attest that emg is on the money here. Share deep secrets, talk about anything deep. Pi, I believe you’re a Pisces? and I think all of us Scorps like Pisces, so vibe your watery deep compassionate Piscean self and you’ll be irresistible. Ignore the stinger. We’d never use it on a fellow water sign anyway! At least not in this Scorps opinion. Fellow water signs just don’t seem to be capable of even peeving me off in the slightest.

Tee hee. Ultra water here too. Cancer stellium but big water grand trine. We waters love to dive deep

Just jumping in here, what counts as a Stellium? I have sun, moon, Mars and black moon Lilith in Cancer.

As far as Scorp males, give him lots of attention (but in a subtle mysterious way, not doting) and yes talk about the depths of things. If he’s not a talker then use action. Watch a documentary or something that shows your personality and depth.

JokermanMM Member
Jokerman

3 or more planets in a sign or house. If within 10° it is a strong representation of that energy. More so if they inc the Asc or planets out to Mars. A Stellium can be more dominant than the Sun sign and usually is.

To add further, is he really genuinely difficult? Or just difficult as in guarded in the typical Scorp way? If the former, are you sure you want to even go there? If the latter, basically, as discussed below, you’ll need to be the first to open up about something personal/deep, plus show plenty of understanding/compassion towards him. Best of luck!! (Funnily enough I’ve got a bit of a crush on a Scorp male for the first time in my whole life myself right now, and ought to walk my own talk here.)

PiMM Member
Pi

i think he’s being guarded, but to the point where i think he hates me now, after some closer moments. And in the spirit of not deluding myself, i’m going to take that as a big fat fuq off. 🙁 given that my repressed and dysfunctional capricorn moon probably makes people think the same thing about me. a mexican standoff at 1,000,000 paces. you don’t know they’ve pulled the trigger until the bullet hits you in the heart.

WaterGemMM Member
WaterGem

My Scorpio South Node and Pisces Moon, Chiron, Saturn suggests letting yourself be slightly mysterious. As I recall you have a Gem Asc (like me ;). I’m guessing you can bring out the ambiguity in being slightly reserved, a little vulnerable but also bravely hopeful. I don’t think the Oracle would have suggested getting the Scorp onside if it was beyond you.

Thanks, watergem <3 x

It occurred to me that there is another Scorpio who is not him, and maybe is a friend, but that’s a mystery for now

Oh bugger, Pi. Well, if you made an effort and you weren’t getting any good qi back, then it’s really not worth it anyway. Stuff him! Still sucks though. Cap moon here too.

PiMM Member
Pi

I’m always happy to hear from a cap moon scorp, especially with some leo 🙂
I keep forgetting that his moon and mine are in a close square. That can’t help! I mean I actually just want to get to know him more, but he won’t chat unless it’s between the sheets, which is so nice but also not very (sigh) practical when I trying not to drunkenly tumble into bed as an opening move (fail lol)
Anyway I think I was dark-moon tripping a bit, all this hot summer daylight is helping 🙂
Thank you x

good point DoraD. i wonder who i know who is a scorp rising. Yes, my instincts definitely need a little clarity right now. the earth vibe in general and saturn in my 7th house transiting is a good sign to clean all of that right up!!!

ahhh March 2015…30th march 2015 I separated from my manipulative, controlling, self serving husband (married 22 years) and that was the start of a really huge shit storm. I have had to work hard over the past 3 and a half years to repair my relationship with our three kids he set out to destroy.

You may have also had to start fresh with your home resources: everything from the bill payments to the cutlery. That may sound kind of small compared to what you’re talking, but if you think about it, there’s the Capricorn-Cancer theme, and you must have done at least one of them well by caring and plugging away without even looking back at that equally hard work that you did then. You know well those daily things keep the kids a bit grounded when all is spun out. I reckon you should look over it with rejoicing at and trust in… Read more »

I just checked back my email threads of March 15. It was then I found my tenants had trashed my house and started eviction and also started another court case for my now fiancé regarding his mother and her guardianship. I had more legal plates spinning for the next two years than I care to remember and it was all a big lesson in stand up and don’t back down. Fight your corner, do not allow those who do you wrong to win. Frankly it was exhausting. Bizarrely too, but of course I’m still pretty much in the same spot.… Read more »

Actually since then I’ve had more court dealings than I care to remember. Culminating in me stepping out of my 31 year career and yesterday having to write a plea in mitigation for my chap who has a court date of 11th January as he forgot to sign a certificate ! FFS So that was all 10th house stuff really but this new moon is 11th. And I’m walking away into new beginnings, new circle of colleagues, friends, career. Etc etc. Please gods can it go right this time.

This is such a simplistic thing to say about a crazy complex situation, but – have you cleansed/saged/mugworted that house? Seems like it might need it after all the unpleasantness from your tenants.

I will do it again ! I’ve painted it out fully, I’ve cleaned it to a sparkle, I’ve opened every door and window for four months (no kidding) and I’ve played loud music, said prayers, burnt letters, chucked out and purged everything that’s not nailed down. I’ve hoponopononohoopo’d, forgiven it, asked for it to forgive me. I’ve burnt sage and Paulo santo. So I’ve now got mugwort (which I find utterly delightful) so I’ll go smoke the place out with it. It will sell this month !

That time was such a blur I had to go back and check my journal… it was interesting reading! Processing massive grief, grappling with the see-saw of self-care/self-sabotage, starting to date again, establishing a home, starting the bodywork that set me on a brand new path and totally changed my life (but in true Cap style, it happened very slowly). I also quit a life-defining professional project back then – something I have recently returned to with a transformed /alchemised attitude and competence. That eclipse of 2015 was when I made contact with the Neptunian Cap Lover – predictably, he… Read more »

20 March 2015 was challenging as I learned two people I was doing research report for casually gave that report to a friend of theirs to quick start his own business. When I challenged them, I got an overly emotional response back, which I interpreted as ‘guilty as charged’. That episode led me to enrol in a self development course because I was sick and tired of being walked over (allowing myself to be walked over by being too trusting) and exploited. It was the best thing I’ve done. I’m obviously still learning more (accepting more?) about who I am… Read more »

WOW this is incredible. My sun-pluto-lillith-moon conj in 8H with the stellium starting at 16 Libra. March 2015 coincided with the last hit of the zap zone/cardinal cross where my sun opposed uranus and squared pluto for the last time. I was in the midst of a spectacularly sh!tty situation with a worthless dude (lots of 8H themes) that was the culmination of almost a decade of intermittent bs from him. I had just had or was on a terrible vacation in March 2015 during which I decided I was done putting up with other people’s sh!t. But cleaning up… Read more »

20 March 2015? My life exploded spectacularly… broke up with husband/business partner, got kicked out of the marital home, became homeless, a protestor, got pregnant… all this while Jupiter was riding back and forth across my mid heaven in Leo

Ugh, during that time I was returning to work after recovering from a car accident that broke my skull, neck, face, shoulder, knee and hand. The transition back into work was hell, and ever since then I’ve been stuck in such a vicious cycle of having mental breakdowns triggered by jobs I hate…. When the accident occurred, transiting Pluto was at 13 degrees Capricorn. Conjunct my part of fortune (13 degrees Capricon, third house). At this time, transiting Saturn was also conjunct my natal Pluto in Scorpio (first house). This was a shit time in my life but definitely not… Read more »

Cue assessing all my boundaries, self-care, standing up to work related bullies by coming from a place of self-truth. I had to grow during a time of intense heartache, namely the shedding of naivety relating to entrenched, oligarch Systems.

Am I a freak? The astral is actually feeling really good to me so far. With my natal Cap moon and Scorpionic intensity, maybe this is just how I roll… touch wood! March 2015 was around the time I decided to start on a new career path, which was definitely for the best long term, but in that actual month there was some immense pain and I remember feeling profoundly depressed at one point. Let’s see how this plays out… happy new moon and good luck to us all!

March 2015 was when I discovered my now EX husband was spending any spare time alone he had watching porn in front of my non-verbal disables daughter. Good bye husband #2. Funnily enough, throw back has already occurred only a week ago, when ex told a friend that I had accused him of having an affair with her, and this friend who I hadn’t seen in years dumped all that gossip on my 20 year old other daughter.

It’s going to be something about the Northern Capricorn. I know it. Or related to him. Or the feelings if not the person. The March 2015 eclipse heralded a message that flipped me into a different hemisphere physically, and a different dimension emotionally. it was super 9th house flavoured by a uranian MC (opposite pluto) transit. Naturally everything happens at once and omg that time was also when pluto was squaring my midheaven and natal pluto like all fuq and then Chiron parked on my sun for a year etc. I went to a therapist for the first time ever… Read more »

I was never a Simpson’s fan so I’m torn between thinking that is Carl Sagan or Leonard Nimoy. They are cut from similar cloth. I found the perfect Uranus in Taurus tv series, Jordskott, based in nordic myth but packaged in a cop drama format and really about the relationships between man and nature and about hybridization and how that makes the boundary between us and outside so pleasingly blurry. It reminds me there is a theory that mitochondria were originally a separate species, rather than an organelle, I love that.

This new moon and previous relative transits cannot be overstated imo. Thank you for validating my thoughts – it’s indelibly etched in my life map as poignant to the time it was but also still relevant and tapping time beyond this life time. Uncle Pluto is still visiting distant relatives in my personal universe… yawn, yes he’s a long term guest at hotel luna-ven on the 8th boulevard and is clearly enjoying his stay, so much so he’s indicated he’s planning on staying quite a while longer and has asked for his rent to be discounted if not waived –… Read more »

Hotel Pluto sounds like a Chateau Marmont with ALL the old and recent haunting celebs hanging about at once, vying for some of the same rooms. It’s not that the hotel needs a re-vamp, you’ve already broken apart all the earth of walls, ripped up floors and tiles, maybe even opened some ceilings. It might be more the guest list and the reputation built on it. Calling in the architects and decorators might bring a bit more Venusian balance to that Pluto. Not all the beautiful emotional and sensual pleasures are Lunated without Art/Pleasure/Money. Call the new guests of Venus/Gaia.… Read more »
