New Moon 11 January 2024: The Satan’s In The Particulars


Two issues instantly stand out with the New Moon in Capricorn (3:57 AM PST at 20 CAP 44): the way in which it and the opposing Earth type a crisp Cardinal Grand Cross with the Nodal axis (and as properly with Zeus conjoined the South Node, and Eris conjoined the North, and these opposed one another at 24 levels), and the Earth Grand Trine the New Moon kinds with Uranus in Taurus and Juno in Virgo. These are dynamic power patterns, promising motion (Cardinals) and materials affect (Earth indicators), with the New Moon performing as set off to each. So what does the New Moon itself promise?

A New Moon in Capricorn implies new beginnings in issues of standing, social construction, constraints and guidelines, limits and necessities for achievement, so might really feel a bit of like punishment; in actuality, the shape Capricorn imposes is for our profit. The signal lets us know the boundaries, lets us know what we should do to get what we wish and go about climbing the ladder, making an affect, constructing a spot for ourselves within the wider world. We should always welcome understanding the principles of the sport–the choice is a formless world the place nothing could be constructed upon, every part dissolves in a mist, all is chaos, and as Gertrude Stein famously mentioned, there’s no ‘there there’–and even worse, in a world with out guidelines, there’s no option to instigate change. And not using a system in place, we will’t create a greater one. Primarily, all turns into meaningless.

So, Capricorn ‘items’ us with type, limits, and situations for achievement, and expects us to observe the principles–and on this occasion, the Cardinal Grand Cross tells us that taking heed of the brand new situations and necessities, new kinds and limits, will likely be instrumental in shaping our future, within the course our lives take (the Nodes). The repercussions that ripple out like rings within the water are what we should be as conscious of as potential–and but, it’s not potential to know all the implications of our present decisions and actions–and that’s the place the Earth Grand Trine is available in.

We now have Juno in Virgo (empowerment by way of discretion and important evaluation, and thru productive labor that insures every harvests in line with that invested labor) and Uranus in Taurus (impulses towards insurrection, innovation, and chaos within the materials realm that may be channeled into distinctive creativity and decisions that honor Increased Thoughts), and these potentials come inside attain with the spark of the New Moon. Luna will present us stability empowerment generated by our efforts and discriminative colleges as they’re utilized taking sensible artistic dangers and making sensible, spiritually mature decisions. The New Moon recruits the sensation nature and intuitive sensibilities as guides in shaping our decisions and our path ahead–and all whereas sorting the wheat from the chaff, so to talk, the related from the distracting and the complicated.

The presence with the Nodes of Eris opposed Zeus is a touch as to what’s at stake: our ambitions and wishes should be measured in direct relation to these issues and people that harbor harmful or chaotic power in response to our efforts. If it undermines your path it’s going to present itself now–it may possibly’t assist it–and the New Moon in Capricorn will provide the situations below which you’ll or received’t settle for what’s in play. It’s helpful in a thousand methods–the one hazard is that sentiment (the Moon) might cloud our imaginative and prescient, might undermine us performing in our personal greatest pursuits.

Much less compelling however no much less revealing facets the New Moon makes embody a semi-sextile to Ceres and a semi-square to Saturn. These recommend that our sense of private energy, and/ or our well being, will determine in, and that the truth image or our personal internalized sense of ‘dos and don’ts’ might perpetuate emotional resistance. For greatest outcomes, we should set these preconceived (and sometimes Self-imposed and Self-generated) ‘limits’ apart, and go along with the brand new, revised imaginative and prescient provided by the New Moon. There’s additionally a sextile to Pallas, which ought to set our minds comfortable. Interior knowledge and practicality can be found–all we’ve to do is name on them.

Inside hours (for the Moon) and days (for the Solar) each will meet Pluto at 29 tense levels of Capricorn. In reality, the Solar will meet after which journey into Aquarius with Pluto, so it’s actually price mentioning these upcoming encounters. The New Moon happens in anticipation of its conjunction with the lord of the Underworld; that’s, emotional revelations delivered by occasions of the New Moon lay the emotional groundwork for radical change, elimination, resurrection, or transformation (Moon conj Pluto), which is adopted by our consideration on that change (Solar conj Pluto), which is able to take us from spotlighting the re-making of the established programs/ actuality (Capricorn) to improvements in substitute programs/ approaches which are keyed to Increased Thoughts (Aquarius).

Sabian for the brand new Moon is, ‘A Relay Race’. This may occasionally check with the New Moon’s preparation of the way in which ahead for the Solar/ Moon encounters with Pluto. A relay race options the passing of a baton from one participant to the following. The unique runner doesn’t cross the end line, nor do people who observe. It’s solely the ultimate runner, who advantages from the actions of all who got here earlier than, that truly engages in the long run of the race. The large and sometimes irrevocable modifications Pluto represents are constructed on many small moments that lead as much as that change; we’re in a kind of intervals now. This additionally hints on the significance of the previous (SN) in creating the longer term (NN), with the contact to Saturn suggesting present actuality isn’t essentially simple to change or take care of (semi-square), a minimum of indirectly and even consciously.

I’ve heard the phrase, ‘The satan’s within the particulars’ extra occasions than I can depend prior to now week (name it our Weekly Phrase Picture, should you like)–and I believe it’s precisely what applies to the energies stirred by this New Moon. Whereas we’re coping with all of it, our consideration is taken for probably the most half by the trivia of residing, however it’s these small, generally barely seen decisions that form and drive what’s to return–these are what happen throughout, and linked to, this New Moon in Capricorn level.

Additionally of observe: a really shut trine between Venus in Sagittarius and Chiron in Aries. Pay attention to the convenience with which we might injure ourselves or others in making an attempt to use ‘the details’ inside relationships (or, in the way in which realities about cash might have an effect on relationships). We might attempt to scale back an interplay to a sensible stage, or to a handful of exhausting truths; don’t overlook that it exists firstly due to feeling, and people want no justification or clarification.
