With the planets starting to pile up in sidereal Capricorn is it no wonder we are all feeling heavier, sober and depressed. Welcome to your full moon post! :)
What an interesting start to the year?! We have been in a karmic lock which means that we are governed completely by our karma and there is no escape from both the past and future events as they all demand attention in the present. Then compound this with 5 planets now in Capricorn (soon to be 7 by mid Feb) and we have ourselves a pity party like no other! No really it's not that bad - but it might feel impending or insurmountable right now. I'm a bit of a Pollyanna (believe it or not from my prior words above) so I'm going to ring in the silver lining: whatever starts in Capricorn begins from the bottom YET there is a promise that if we have patience and discipline we can reach heights like no other slowly and surely! Phew does that sound better? (Who even is Pollyanna and is she related to Pippi?)
Tomorrow morning we find the peak of our full moon which means tonight is the night for culmination. With such a heavy earth element collaboration it is our beautiful moon holding the balance right now. Being in sidereal cancer the nourishing and caring element of water is here to soothe all that feels too hard, too harsh and cold and hold us in her embrace. Today/tonight is a time to give to yourself and others nourishment. What does this word mean to you? Think holistically and be creative. Your body needs to feel warm and held. Your mind needs to feel pure and safe. Your spirit needs to feel uplifted and inspired. Most of all the moon represents our contentment and happiness which is activated through the spiritual heart. Meditating on this centre tonight would be a wonderful way to bring this Pushya energy in.

Time seems to be have bended since last year and has become even more elusive as we have entered this new year together - how many times have you heard someone ask what day it is?! In fact is there such a thing as a 'year' in the first place? Man made constructs like time, money, land borders etc are becoming more fictitiously linear while the more expansive and spiraling truth is starting to awaken to us all! We live in exciting yet fragile times indeed.
Ok I shall place my existential hat down and get back to the new moon ahead of us! In my previous post I mentioned the Kal Sarpa ahead. Kal Sarpa sounds sexier than it is - All the planets are hemmed in between the karmic axis of Rahu and Ketu (the lunar nodes). With all the planets wedged in between Taurus and Scorpio we can start to see the karma we are locked into both individually (looking at the houses this effects in your natal chart) and collectively. It is collectively where I will shine some reflections: Taurus is the desires and thirst for security ahead. Scorpio is detaching from the past of sudden change and transformation. There is a push pull between these two signs.
Taurus' higher octave is to commune with the earth and find solace in the wisdom of natures cycles with its lower side grasping for material comforts. Scorpios higher octave is to evolve through the turbulence of change and spiritually awaken with its lower side getting stuck and addicted to the change itself. It isn't one or the other here we are trying to balance the two karmic axes. With all the change we have gone through it isn't about going back to what was comfortable (taurus) yet we most often want to when the change is so relentless (scorpio). It is embracing your evolutionary rebirth (scorpio) through the change that provides the solace and inner/spiritual security (taurus) that we are all seeking now. But that requires determination and sustenance. Both traits that Scorpio and Taurus can provide.
The new moon falls into this inescapable karmic lock one sign over in Sagittarius. Hold true and keep the faith! If you can lift that arrow of wisdom of yours and set your sights on the expanding adventure ahead all will be right. In fact the sun and moon both in Uttarashada promise a final and long-lasting victory ahead through all of this. This is the new moon to set that goal. Don't dream small! Yet also keep in mind the karma you are in so set the dream with this in mind. Let me break it down: This victory ahead isn't about you going backward nor is it about you feeling safe and regressively asleep - it is about awakening into a higher consciousness. Does your dreams fit into both individual and collective growth? If the answer is no redraft until it does. It is so tempting and alluring to grasp at material comforts or addictive/obsessive habits from the past right now. This is the challenge of the start of this year. This new moon is the opportunity to lift the spirits higher above this and keep that goal in mind whenever you waver.
