All the old Copernican planets apart from Uranus are direct, so mirror this and turn your face and your feet towards the future. Conjure up your own spell against stagnation and keep moving.
Mars in earthy Capricorn aligned with Jupiter in Taurus is delivering a steady, consistent supply of practical, grounded energy to expand past the self-imposed limits of your comfort zone. On January 11th, the New Moon at 20 Capricorn – conjunct Pluto square the karmic Nodes of Fate and trine Uranus in Taurus – is Pluto’s swan song in Capricorn before the Great Eliminator departs for Aquarius on January 20th.
All this supercharged Plutonian/Capricorn energy will accept nothing less than simplicity, cutting back to essentials, practical material progress and a commitment to personal integrity.
Ruled by Lord of Time and Karma Saturn, one of Capricorn’s gifts is the concept that reasonable boundaries and rules actually do offer you freedom – freedom from worry and chaos.
The practice above all practices is to relinquish the immature desire to be taken care of in false belonging and to parent your own originality. It’s time to find a new kind of personal power anchored in your own truth. There is safety and a ground of being not in doing what authority or status figures tell you but in the powerful flow of your own guidance system.
At this New Moon, no matter what is in flux around you, seize the chance to create some serious order in your life: –
- insource your Saturn- c laim back your autonomy
- tie up loose ends/get closure
- strengthen personal boundaries
- clear the river of your own ecology
- de-clutter your physical surroundings – home, workspace, car
- make a deep commitment to keeping promises to yourself

Chandra Symbol New Moon CAPRICORN 21:
A stately old house in a ruined condition.
“Karmic entanglement in patterns, syndromes, and worlds which have no future. Dwelling in worlds apart and worlds gone by. Intent upon salvaging the spark of what was once there and claims your allegiance still. You are heavily drawn back in a virtual stupor or enchantment of following out a script, fulfilling a fate. Every line written ahead of time. Starchy and formal. Haunted, intrigued, bound up within what would seem to be no longer happening. Yet inwardly brooding upon the reverberations and echoes of what went wrong, of what was lost, of the severances and the tragedies. Doomed to stay in the lost places until Divine Spirit intervenes. Self-sentenced to limbo, half glad of it and half miserable and full of longings.”
