Between yesterday and today, the Sun was perfectly aligned with the Galactic Center at 27 degrees Sagittarius, the location of the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole, which emits powerful energies that are completely imperceptible to most people and has a mass of approximately 4 million solar masses.
New Moon in Capricorn on December 23, 2022
As we are aware that the Sun does not move, those of us on Earth who are passing through Gemini are the ones who can see the Sun in the last degrees of Sagittarius.
The Sun will have already entered Capricorn tomorrow night in Europe and the Moon will join it at 1° Capricorn 33′, creating the first New Moon of the year in this sign of the Goat, as befits this time of year. Each New Moon is unique, as we already know and this one is no different.
When the two luminaries align, they will form an exact square with Ceres at 1° Libra and Jupiter at 0° Aries. Jupiter has just re-entered this sign of the divine lamb and will remain there until May 17, when it will then transition to Taurus until May 26, 2024.
A Capricorn new moon will form a T-square with Jupiter and Ceres.
Globally, the following cardinal activity will have a significant impact on all cardinal signs: Aries-Cancer-Libra-Capricorn is undoubtedly indicative of many people traveling (Jupiter) during the holidays to visit nostalgic relatives, mothers, or other loved ones (Ceres).
Although both the Sun and Moon in Capricorn will serve as gentle reminders, on a personal level, the cardinal force of Jupiter in Aries often translates into exaggerated action, which combined with the impulsiveness of Aries can lead one to act in an unplanned manner and simply following an inner mandate for expansion and renewal.
Venus in Capricorn
Venus, also in Capricorn, forms a square with Chiron while opposing Lilith, so the need to find a compromise or a solution to conflicts will be strong.
As a result, you may experience situations where you must act as a mediator between two parties who are unable to find common ground.
However, Venus also forms a trine with Uranus and the Lunar Node, which challenges you to find ways to avoid becoming emotionally involved in someone else’s narrative.
The placement of the first degree of Cancer in your natal chart may be the key to the solution.
Among other things, it serves as a reminder that although there are occasional disagreements, especially between members of your family, they are often just two sides of the same story, because all members of the same tribe or family share ancestral stories that each individual lives differently.
Eris and Pluto square
The square between Eris and Pluto, is long active and currently reactivated by events on the southern border of the United States, in Ukraine and everywhere else.
Where refugees, immigrants and migrants are trying to arrange papers that will allow them to legally enter or leave the country, it is rekindled as Mercury forms a square with Eris on the way to meet Pluto.
Mars remains retrograde in Gemini, which makes everything worse.
New Moon in Capricorn
Even the most Neptunian personalities find it difficult to comprehend Capricorn’s view of reality, which always points us in the direction of sanity.
Serve also as a reminder that you will often wake up from your dreams and that the only ones that come true are those who follow Capricorn’s advice to proceed with caution, be patient when impatient and, most importantly, always accept your limitations.
Capricorn will also motivate you to take risks, but to do so cautiously and not rashly.
Without risk, nothing extraordinary happens and if this New Moon in Capricorn has taught us anything, it is that life is a relatively brief and challenging experience, but worth living with all the passion your body can handle.
Capricorn indicates the path you must follow to avoid stepping on the landmines laid by previous generations or by our own past choices, as Jupiter calls us to risk and passion.
You must never lose sight of the fact that love is an endless wave of encounters, disagreements, fights and reunions that seem to follow rules we don’t understand or even recognize, but which propel and move you from one encounter to the next, with all its repercussions and magnificent adventures.
This is the highest essence of life itself and the planets and their energies serve as vital symbols of this continuous exchange that occurs between all the various manifestations of Being.
Aries believes that life is power itself and Libra is the universal relationship between the act of living and sharing. Life mocks all that closed and hermetic friendship that prevents you from evolving and reaching higher levels of Being.
Capricorn affirms that you must manage your energy, but not to the point of preventing it from manifesting.
