Capricorn Cornucopia - New Moon Jan 11th

By January 5, 2013

Follow me on:

One of my friends -- a very Neptunian artist type -- has a Capricorn in her life, who recently helped her clear out a room packed floor to ceiling with stuff. She wants to turn it into a library/guest room, but was overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. She knew her Capricorn ally would take control and be demanding about what had to be done.

This kind of unsentimental, whatever it takes attitude is with us to the New Moon (Jan 11th), with five planets in Capricorn. Those of us that find it hard to "deal," get some resolve to see it through. There's also penetrating vision for seeing pathways that are based on the real world and your real gifts/resources/skills. It's an opening to insight about security, self-sustaining ways of living, and setting a standard that's aligned with your conscience and life purpose.

Boy am I ready for this one…! It’s conjunct my natal moon & venus both. I’d written a bit below about the emotional whiplash I’ve endured these past few days, starting on New Years Eve…

A good friend just said that what happened is a big opportunity for a reset… to steer my energies in different ways, around adjusted values, & boundaries.

So, perhaps it’s perfect timing then – & this is all part of the Universe’s grand plan, what with this upcoming new moon on my sensitive points. Who’d have thought, that life could work in such surreal ways…

And, Molly, I like your previous comment somewhere back there, that for you the New Year really begins on this new moon. I’m definitely going to take it as my starting point as well!

Hi Melanie,
A therapist once told me YEARS ago, not to settle in love — and her words have never left me. Even though I did open my heart and played the fool — I loved and lost — that too was an experience because I’d never judge someone for ‘losing their heads’ in love.
But it’s led me to value a different kind of love – one that’s about honesty, daily respect, intimacy that grows with trust. I think a lot about boundaries, and how we as young women have lost — with the loss of courtship rituals — our natural sense of boundaries. It’s a great and empowering thing to know you’ll go at your own pace in love — and not forsake that inner rhythm.
Capricorn – patience, slow steady building, commitment – all these make this New Moon ideal for claiming that standard for ourselves and not settle for less. Much love, Molly

Vow, Molly, thanks for the wisdom! I’m a Capricorn who has discovered her earthly magic only when I turned forty and I completely resonate with what you’ve written about being practical and in love.
I was thinking a lot last couple of months about courtship rituals and their loss since it affected me very much – for some reason, I was running into men unworthy of trust (pisceans mostly) who attracted me but then abandoned me. It’s only now that I have started meeting what I call authentic, masculine men with menly professions ex. veterinarians etc. It sounds like earth calling me, doesn’t it? They resonate with my passions both as friends and I hope boyfriends! I sometimes wonder why I had to long for it so much but it is probably the way of the Universe,
Happy New Year and lot’s of Love,

HI Eve,
Back when I was a tarot reader in a metaphysical shop, the number one trend I saw was women losing their natural rhythm, a ways into the relationship. They had gone too far too fast, and invested all that we do as women, and were scared. On top of that, we women are often dealing with intense issues of needing approval, and thinking it’s we who should bend for the man’s desires.
I think men also like it when we keep our rhythm and boundaries. This will come up as a major issue with Saturn in Scorpio – I’ll write about this soon. Psychic-sexual boundaries, holding your own energy, and the experiences of being in too deep, when the trust isn’t there.
I see it as a cultural thing, to go for it — when the natural rhythm might be to protect ourselves, until there’s trust.
Thanks for your comment Eve!

I’m a Cap who just turned 50, with a long chain of “fools rush in” relationships. I think it has taken me that many years to learn to value myself and not settle.
Never thought about the loss of the courtship ritual – great point. I see the freedoms of my generation and consequently, even more in the generations that followed, as a double-edged sword: they are great and they are long overdue but in many respects, the pendulum has swung so wildly the other way. I think it is slowly coming back to the middle as people realize that you pay the price for your freedom.
