The New Moon is a new personal cycle, a time of new opportunities and beginnings, with a Solar Eclipse being an intensified New Moon. Since this New Moon takes place in the responsible, goal-setting sign of Capricorn, it is timely to re-assess what you really value, let go of what you don’t need, and set in place long-term, realistic plans in a time-measured way. If you are unhappy, take stock and ask what lessons you can learn from the situation. Set new objectives, and take steps toward committing to your priorities in order to make progress on your new path. 

Six planets in Earth

There are six planets in Earth signs at the time of this Eclipse (Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus). The Earth element orientates itself to all that is grounded, practical, realistic and stable. By being solid and persistent, reliably moving in the direction of building something tangible and manifest for success.

New Moon conjunct Jupiter

This New Moon is an extra positive one as it is conjunct the ‘Greater Benefic’ planet, Jupiter, at 05°20′ Capricorn, offering new opportunities, growth, expansion and good fortune in general. Set your intention in the area of life in your chart where you would like a lucky new beginning. It is especially auspicious if it falls within around 3° of your Sun, Moon or the angles (Ascendant/Descendant, IC/MC axis).

New Moon trine Uranus

The Eclipse also makes a flowing, harmonious trine aspect with Uranus in Taurus at 02°45′, so any new beginning may be unusual, exciting, surprising and unexpected. A generous gift (Jupiter) may be bestowed upon you without you having earnt it.

Heading into 2020

There are many planets in Capricorn now and throughout 2020, where we make our luck (Jupiter) by having a plan, building a solid foundation and by being serious and organised (Saturn). What is it that we need to delve deeply into to uncover and transform (Pluto) in order to effect our visions, goals and ambitions?

More generally, abuse of power and corruption by leaders will arise, and we there is every potential that society will evolve from a collapse and ensuing crisis.
