New Moon in Capricorn
January 16, 2018
Struggling to wake up with Mercury Retrograde at the start of 2018, the Universe has thrown some wrenches our way to make sure we are seeing everything with our eyes wide open.
The year began with the most beautiful, and brightest, super moon of 2018. The Cherokee Indians were correct in naming it cold moon. As I stated in the Super moon blog, “I would not be surprised if the colder states are colder and the warmer states get much more rain than anticipated and it too becomes very cold or hot. This will go hand in hand with our feelings as pressure from the water and the rain causes many of us to become more emotional than normal.”- Read more here.
With our eyes watery from the brightness of the super moon and cold weather, the universe is having some mercy. Now what we are about to see is a complete void, with our first Micro New Moon in Capricorn. Possibly, it is the Gods in heaven way of letting us know what it would be like if we had no moon at all, or what it would be like to have it so far away.
Micro New Moon will be a void in the sky, however it will also seem as if the outline of the moon is 25-35% smaller. Not only will it seem smaller, but like a normal full moon, this new moon will bring high tides due to the gravitational pull on the one side of our two main planets – the sun and the moon. Once again, I would not be surprised if we have more unexpected wrath from Mother Nature, but this time the plates may be the focal point i.e. earthquakes, tsunami or typhoons.
We must also remember that for every negative this always a positive. The gracious micro new moon will enter the sign of Capricorn, which wonders through the cosmos at 28 degrees on January 16, 2018 at approximately 9:17pm EST and 6:17pm PST.
To bless this transit, Venus also changed signs to Aquarius the day after, January 17, 2018. Not only will fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) be feeling this but by association, all air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) will get a whiff. Venus in Aquarius can bring caring, supportive, optimistic, and aspiring energy. Hence, it can also bring some personal reserve, impartiality, and directness. This can be good or bad depending upon how you fancy your relationships.
The Earthy New Moon brings a time of gorgeousness and maturing. It is a period of individual contentment and a time to introspect. It’s time to consider: How can you combine your dreams, bring them into the world, and say this is good for everyone? It is about self-sacrifice.
The New Moon signals a time for being bold and taking plenty of risks as long as they are divine. Remember that perfect job you wanted? Manifest it, draw it, and picture it. Remember the perfect relationship you wanted? Think about it and ask – does it happen or is it a deception? The new moon will usher Capricorns and Earth signs to start again and Cardinal signs to produce something for months to come. Don’t forget to write that check to yourself for whatever amount you “need” to pay off those bills and place it where the universal energy will see it. Remember, there is a difference between need and want.
A new cycle has started. It is the seed of footing for a new lunar cycle. The chart of the New Moon is the key to stimuli in the coming lunar month. The New Moon is an asking time; time to direct what our wishes are and surrendering to the plans accessible through this moon in Capricorn. The moon urges you to decide and honor the status of the “additional” – other people, thoughts, and principles.
You can hold everything. Love completely, too. This is the time to Fold, Implore and be Grateful, and to work on efficiency and success. There are tendencies to have a very eccentric nature and to complete and attain discrete concepts and values. But there is also a bias to reply rashly and fervently.
Diffidence and arrogance in all things will be the drive – thus, communication may be difficult to express. Take all subtle circumstances sincerely, seeing the outcome of opinions and actions.
The New Moon brings with it ambitiousness, practicality, and being a good leader. By fostering others there is response to their actions, prompting them to continue. The greater need is to look to your mother for discipline and order, and you may see her as a person of high status.
With the moon in Capricorn, the vibrating of Saturn is highlighted. It is time for determinate energy and an awareness of work and responsibility. Hunting for statuses and financial security, people might become tough, even coldly unfriendly, but the selfishness is a requirement rather than hostility.
The Saturn effects of Capricorn often causes cynicism or pessimism to creep in, and while the moon is in Capricorn energy is lethargic. It is time for carefully applying yourself to errands while living solely in the present.
The moon in Capricorn is Focused, Gloomy, Robust, Tangible, and Capricious. You may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle which will be our first eclipse in 2018.
This year I have decided to incorporate 4 mantras to assist in advancement of Sanskrit utilities as well as bring a more diverse devotional connection. For the Capricorn moon, the mantras are as follows:
Om Aing Kleeng Hreeng Shreeng Sauh
(omm (breathe in through your mouth) Aiiing (breathe out through your nose) Kliiing (breathe in) Hriing (breathe out) Shriing(Breathe in) Saauuhh(Breathe out)
During this mantra, you should feel the vibration through your ears, upper jaw, nose, and chest. This is how the more advance method should be practiced as well.
Om Shreem Upendraya Achutaya Namah
“Yasya:nke cha vibha:ti bhu:dharsuta: devapaga: mastake, Bhale balbidhurgale cha garalam yasyorasi vyalraat Soyam bhumivibhisanah survarah sarvadhipah sarvada: Sharvah sarvgatah shivah shashinibhah shri Shankar patu maam”
“Om Shanno devīrabhistdaapo bhavantupītaye Aparadhasahastrani kriyanteharnisam maya Dasoyamiti maa matva kshamasva paramesvara. Gatam papam gatam du Kham gatam daridraya meva ch…Agatah Sukha- sampatti punyoham tava darsanat”
If your primary planets are in Capricorn it is recommend that you do 108 mala beads in the morning and at night.
Additionally, it is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and recite Psalm 117 if you find the mantra too difficult. Make sure you take the time to write down 10 aspirations and recite them every day, wording them to say, “I can have…”
Please note that I am not an Astrologer. These are general tendencies which are incorporated in Vedic foresight which enhances and brings distinction between the East and West.
Vedic reading is unique; the evaluations and results are based upon supplementing actions beyond words, bringing explanations and suppositions. It brings complications to the head to bring soother resolutions. It brings two paths which focus on what is present day and what could be in the future. But most of all, it halts time, like it is in warp energy, so that appropriate assessment can be made as to which path could deliver positive or manifested results.
I wish you the best of the new moon. Just remember to plant those seeds that can sustain chaos as there will be a lot of shaking and stirring the pot at the end of the month.
