New Moon in Capricorn 12/21/14 – Set goals!

Astro New Moon CrescentThe same day the Sun moves into Capricorn, December 21, 2014, there will be the monthly New Moon in the same Earth sign. This Sunday, Capricorn traits will be highlighted – work, ambition, persistence. “New” energy can give us the push to start the year with plans to accomplish goals, advance a career, make space to achieve. New Moons are always full of “beginning” possibilities and with this 10th sign of the Zodiac, although not as perky and upbeat as the sign before it, Sagittarius, there is no need to slow down or get sluggish here. Capricorn can supply the pragmatism and discipline to go forward and pursue a path to success.

Even though the Moon will change signs into Aquarius on Tuesday, the influences last for about 10 days. Start something, create something, plan something.

* New Moon: 12/21/14 – 8:36 PM EST / 5:36 PM PST

Have a great weekend!

 

Winter Solstice / Capricorn Sun – Together Again on 12/21/14!

The Capricorn Sun on Sunday December 21, 2014, is the official start of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and is the shortest day of the year. This Earth sign, ruled by stern Saturn, believes in duty, responsibility, and loves being in charge. Regardless of our actual birth date, we may all feel the influences of the ambitious 10th sign of the Zodiac and get a thrill directing traffic and telling people what to do. Fun for the boss, but maybe not so much for the employee? Remember to be careful with how you treat others, you can be authoritative with honey, rather than vinegar.

astrology_chartwheel 2After all the excitement and activities of the holidays, there is no need to have an energy let down. As the year’s end approaches, it’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in 2014. With Capricorn‘s affinity for work and organization, we can keep busy, accomplished and sensible. Plan what’s next for 2015, tune up career moves, set up a networking campaign, determine whatever needs to be shaped up and do it. Make something happen. Just don’t get so bogged down that you become rigid and/or cautious. Relax, remember that you have a sense of humor – use it.

And just to make it all the more interesting, there are Planets transiting Capricorn during this time:

*Venus (Love, beauty, money) 12/11/14 – 1/3/15 – relaxing of “all or nothing” attitudes for getting ahead. Focus on financial gains?

*Mercury (Communication, travel, tech) 12/17/14 – 1/4/15– Reading/writing can become more serious. Maintain sense of humor. Reign in sharp, hurtful exchanges. Listen.

*Pluto (Rebirth, transformation) has been in Capricorn since 2008 – deep feelings, changes in career direction?, revelations, regeneration (until 2023)

**Capricorn Sun = December 21, 2014…6:03 PM EST / 3:03 PM PST

Gemstone: Obsidian, Onyx *Power color: Black, grays * Body Part: Bones

FYI:  “The Winter Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, the term is also a turning point to midwinter or the first day of winter…The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days.” (per WikiPedia)

 

 

Full Moon in Ambitious Capricorn!

Astro Moon FullThe Moon is in Capricorn today – it’s all about status, authority and work. To make these traits even more intense, the Lunar orb will be “Full” in this Saturn ruled sign on Saturday July 12, 2014. (The Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is lit up with reflected light in its opposite sign.) Our thoughts lean towards managing career, long term goals, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching for the top. Are your business strategies, actions producing results? Full Moon in Capricorn is a good time to think about it and then take any needed action when the Moon is in its “New” phase, 7/26/14.

Later this weekend, the Moon will be in Uranus ruled, freedom loving Aquarius. The 11th sign of the Zodiac urges us to be unconventional, unpredictable and unwilling to conform. If you’re going to rebel, make sure that there is substance.

Have a marvelous weekend!

Capricorn Full Moon: July 12, 2014 – 7:25AM EDT / 4:25AM PDT

 

Take Charge Capricorn Moon This Weekend

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lOn Saturday and Sunday, May 17 & 18, 2014, we will be in the serious embrace of a Capricorn Moon. The 10th sign of the Zodiac has ambitious yearnings. The agenda involves managing career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and striving for the pinnacle. Are your business strategies, actions producing the results you want?

Ruled by Saturn, the planet of boundaries and life lessons (not always fun, but can be maturing), see this Capricorn Moon transit as an opportunity to show your stuff. Use the authoritarian energy to accomplish, complete and be a great boss. Being ambitious is not a negative. Like everything else, it depends on how it’s handled. Be nice to your employees (or family members that you’ve organized and roped into assisting with chores). Assign tasks, give directions, move with confidence and purpose. Don’t forget to say “thank you”.  

Have a powerful weekend!

 

 

New Moon * New Year

Astro New Moon CrescentAn ambitious, financial security focused Capricorn New Moon helps us greet the New Year on Wednesday, January 1, 2014.  After a few choruses of Auld Lang Syne and a couple of glasses of bubbly, whether it be champagne or ginger ale, New Moon energy can give us the push to start the year with plans to accomplish goals, advance a career, create space to achieve.

Fill in that empty 2014 calendar, see that blank slate as an opportunity to contribute and cram it full of the good things in life.

New Moon Wednesday, January 1, 2014 – 6:14AM EST – 3:14AM PST

Joy, Good Luck, Good Health – Happy New Year!

Friday the 13th & Moon Mixed Energy Weekend

Astro New Moon CrescentMoon in Capricorn on Friday, September 13, 2013 – Moon in Aquarius early on Sunday morning, September 15, 2013 -hmmmm. Work hard, go over the budget, be in charge on Friday/Saturday. Attend a community fund raiser, corral volunteers for a neighborhood project and / or go out to picket on Sunday?

Whichever you decide to do, use the energy of the particular sign the Moon is visiting on that day.

Earthy Capricorn: Authority, status, financial security

Airy Aquarius: Friendly, innovative, comfortable in groups with a cause

In any case, use your best stuff as always and have fun with it. Enjoy the weekend!

Re: Friday the 13th – I avoid those freaky Friday conversations. Can’t really jump on the “Triskaidekaphobia” bandwagon, Friday the 13ths are usually lucky days for me, so that’s what I’ll anticipate!

 

Sagittarius Moon / Capricorn Moon – Possibilities!

Astro New Moon CrescentTime to perk up! On Friday July 19, 2013, the Moon is in optimistic, jovial Sagittarius. Lucky Jupiter rules this Fire sign so the possibilities of gathering up good things is endless. Take a short trip, spread a little cheer, get out and about, see people, create an adventure – fun.

On Saturday morning the Moon slips into the “all about business” Earth sign Capricorn. Ruled by serious Saturn, the 10th sign of the Zodiac has duty, responsibility and authoritarian focus. Our thoughts become more deliberate and concerned with ambition, status, financial stability, etc. Take charge of something.

Have an excellent weekend!

 

Sagittarius and Capricorn for the Weekend!

Astro Moon FullFriday June 21, 2013, starts off the weekend with a Sagittarius Moon. The possibilities for adventure are endless. Take a short trip, spread a little cheer or have a deep and philosophical conversation about something (an often forgotten Sag trait).

An atmospheric change comes along on early Sunday, with the arrival of a Capricorn Full Moon (reflecting the light of the opposite Cancer Sun). Our thoughts become more deliberate and concerned with ambition, status, financial stability, etc.

Have a delightfully productive Weekend!

 

New Moon in Capricorn, Weekend in Aquarius

Astro New Moon CrescentThe first New Moon of 2013 happens on Friday January 11h. The Lunar Orb is in ambitious, career minded Earth Sign Capricorn – a great way to start the year when you want to devise goals and plans for a status upgrade – strategize! Like all New Moons, it always occurs in the same sign as the current Sun placement intensifying and powering its Astrology traits, characteristics. As I’ve said before, New Moons are always full of “beginning” possibilities, this 10th sign of the Zodiac can supply the pragmatism and discipline to go forward and pursue a path to success.

Even though the Moon will change signs, the “New” energy lasts for about 10 days. From duty bound convention to irreverent rebel, Saturday and Sunday will be under the vibe of the friendly, unpredictable, independent Aquarius Moon. We may be more inclined to do something original, to be spontaneous, to be ready to join the revolution. (Find that old Che T-Shirt 8-) ) Organize a community or group to do some good.

New Moon: Friday 1/11/13 2:44 PM EST / 11:44 AM PST

A Bossy Capricorn Moon This Weekend!

From Saturday afternoon until Monday, we will be in the serious embrace of a Capricorn Moon. Ruled by the planet Saturn, the duty bound, authoritarian energy of the Earthy 10th sign of the Zodiac can really get us to step up to the front, assign tasks, give directions – be the BOSS!

Good time to strategize for any type of business activity. But, don’t go overboard, be nice to your employees (or any friends and family members that you’ve roped into assisting with chores). No need to go into “Myth of Sisyphus” mode – loosen up, stop grinding your teeth, delegate whenever possible and smile.

By Monday evening the Moon will be in fun, innovative, unpredictable Aquarius. Unplanned events are favored.

Work well and accomplish this weekend!
