A New Moon in Capricorn took place on January 11, 2013 at 11:44 am PST, 2:44 pm EST and 7:44 pm GMT.
Did you notice the influence?
After the overwhelming release of emotional energy along with the re-commitment to tenacity of the Cancer Full Moon, The moon has now realigned itself on the other side of the earth with the Capricorn sun.
This New Moon in Capricorn conjoins the sun and Pluto right as the Water Dragon loses its wings and claws and descends to the earth dimension in the form of the Black Water Snake. The Year of the black water snake begins on February 10th just 3 days before the beginning NEW GALACTIC Spin cycle under the red magnetic dragon according to the Mayan moon calendar.
The New Moon rises and sets with the sun highlighting harmony while in the midst of the gravity well that planetary conjunction creates as we reset our emotions. This is a time to set new short-term goals that will help you reach your long-term goals. This process helps you re-affirm earlier commitments or provides the opportunity to get back on track with your intentions. Remember this year is about setting intention and reviewing outcomes over simple New Year’s resolutions.
This new moon cycle provides the opportunity for us to hike with the time traveling sea goat to our shared and personal peaks of progress and perfection. Fire of earth Capricorn, represents the initiating force of the hexahedron earth sign continuum. Saturn ruled Capricorn represents the node of strength, action and creativity in the 120 degree trine that binds it with Virgo the Virgin and Taurus the bull.
This New Moon in Capricorn is an intense time for beginnings, endings and transformations as it aligns with the planets Mercury, Venus and Pluto. This fierce alignment accentuates The emotional cleansing of the recent download of the cancer full moon while it continues the active expansion of consciousness and action of the recent new moon in Sagittarius.
Venus is contributing to the ambitions of Capricorn while at the same time getting us accustomed to turning perceived failures into bona fide successes.
Mercury is giving us the power to communicate our ambitions and shed light on our resistance so that we may transmute our hopes, dreams and desires from the dimension of thought into manifested reality.
Metaphysical Dimensional Gates of Incarnation?
The gate of Capricorn is linked to the gate on the opposite side of the Zodiac ecliptic known as Cancer.
In esoteric astrology, it is said that Cancer opens the door into incarnation, onto The tree of life, and into human experience. Creating the karmic harmonic balance, Capricorn opens the door into the life of the spirit, into the dimension of prime creator, revealing divine purpose and the function of the tether between the microcosm to the macrocosm. Cancer connects the soul to the world and the seeker’s journey through the dimension of humanity. Capricorn facilitates a connection of the soul’s higher octave to the divine after its expansion of consciousness in Sagittarius. This is the point when the ideas conceived in Aries actually manifest under Capricorn’s Saturnian summit creating synchronicity between human will and divine purpose.
Celestial Gates of Incarnation?
The spiritual explanation suggest that Since Capricorn Is located in the 10th house of the zodiac it is therefore considered the gateway of ascension. Since Capricorn is the highest climber of the zodiac occupying the noon position on the Astroclock, one could easily see why this is the gateway of the initiate that has climbed or evolved enough to ascend to a higher realm.
The celestial explanation is that since the sun moves as far north as it can to a point known as the Tropic of Cancer, this is considered the zenith of the sun in the northern Hemisphere. The summer solstice In the northern hemisphere, takes place between the 20-22 of June. This is the first day of Cancer and it is the highest the sun will rise in the sky at noon. The sun will stay at that height for three days before it begins its descent ending with the equinox on the first day of Libra. At this point, the sun has moved away from the Tropic of Cancer and sits above another tropical point that divides the earth in half called the equator. The sun moves its furthest south when it arrives on the tropical point of Capricorn. The Winter solstice and the sign of Capricorn usually begins on December 21st in the northern hemisphere.
A reminder: For our friends and loved ones in the Southern Hemisphere, the solstices are reversed. So the winter solstice begins in June and the summer solstice begins in December.
Perhaps Capricorn is considered the gateway of death because the sun appears not to move for three days. At this time the sun is in the cross constellation and begins its journey Northward on December 25.
The “Wobble” causing Tilt of the Earth?
The 23.5 degree tilt of the earth causes the seasonal cycles that determine how far north or south of the equator the sun appears. As the sun begins to travel Northward, it reaches the vernal or spring equinox when it is located above the tropical point known as the equator. An imaginary line that divides the earth and celestial sphere in half. Depending on how close you live to the equator, days and nights become equal lengths. The equinox is always a good day to look at the great pyramids of Giza. On the equinoxes, you’ll find that there are eight sides to the great pyramid instead of four.
Mythology of Capricorn
In mythology, Capricorn is associated with Ptah, EA and Enki teaching mankind to understand and learn, using the intellect over brutality. Some accounts link this primordial connection to Capricorn to both the Nephilim and the Annunaki. Alternative accounts to Abrahamic religions suggest that this is supposedly where man was given self-awareness.
At one point in history, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces were considered to be a part of esoteric astrology. While I won’t revisit the full mythology explained in the full “thundermoon” in Capricorn, it is important to remember Pan’s escape from Typhon. When Pan jumped into the Nile, the part above the water stayed human and the part below the water became a fish. This is important because it helps to explain why Capricorn is referred to as the sea-goat. While Capricorn’s can climb to the height of their highest objectives, the fish aspect, gives them the capacity to swim to the deepest depth of human emotion just like the water signs. After all, earth is mostly made up of water.
Zodiac Musings by Element or Platonic solid:
Hexahedron – Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo
Time to lead the charge of creating and sticking to short-term and long-term goals. During this new moon, the sun, the moon and Pluto conjoin to create an alliance between your will, your intuition and your ability to renew old goals and follow-through on all projects. Saturn in Scorpio is squaring off with Mars in Aquarius. Saturn, the father of time and limitations is going head-to-head with the humanitarian rebel Uranus and his Promethean pursuits to innovate a world that calls for both personal and community responsibility under the umbrella of universal consciousness. Expect meaningful long-term changes as Pluto exposes Saturn’s illusion of separation through contraction and contrasts this with Jupiter’s truth of unity through expansion. Sudden shifts and disruptions in your life only underscore the construction of a better world emerging from the adversity between the angle of Uranus in Aries as it squares Mercury, the Moon, Venus and Pluto in Capricorn. Leverage yourself against the linear liability of the space-time continuum with the temporal totem of the Phoenix aspect of Pluto as it harmonizes with Saturn in Scorpio and demands transcendence away from victimization towards sovereignty. Capricorn reminds us that even the strongest anchors can break so there should always be a back-up plan that protects all of your investments of time and effort. Taurus reminds us that while regiment and routine are the fundamental building blocks of long-term success, it is necessary to mix things up regularly in order to defeat the cosmic enemies of the earth sign continuum, complacency and stagnation. So keep those outlines handy but don’t be afraid to color outside of the lines.
Octahedron – Aquarius, Gemini and Libra
With Jupiter in Gemini harmonizing with Uranus and Aries, Sky-father Jupiter’s agenda for the political, emotional and spiritual expansion of collective consciousness is being blasted through the stereoscopic view of Mercury ruled Gemini. With the pillars of knowledge oscillating between the north and south poles of thought and action, Uranus in Aries hits the accelerator of activity, unlocking the doors of permanence while giving birth to sustainable creation and change. Aquarius reminds us that taking care of the self is symbiotically linked to taking care of the community. You must do both in order to attain the greatest impact on outcomes of personal and collective growth. Gemini reminds us that being multi-talented can be both a blessing and curse because eventually you will have to choose to focus on one talent when you are accustomed to expanding on many talents at once. Don’t resist as this helps you to develop concentration on the finer details that can help you engineer your dreams. Libra reminds us to balance the hemispheres of the brain with equal proportions of logic and intuition. The Venus ruled deity of love encourages us to lead and create with our hearts and follow through with our minds on a platform of elegance, style and clarity.
Icosahedron- Pisces Cancer and Scorpio
After identifying and sailing through the emotional caverns of your past, you have now emerged with a sense of wholeness. The deep contrast between your positive and negative emotions have released the emotional Tsunamis of healing that have enabled you to make the journey from the spiritual fires of the heart chakra to the expressive channels of the throat chakra. The passion of Venus in Capricorn and the bohemian motivations of Mars in Aquarius create a space of compromise between material wealth and spiritual growth in step with the growth of the collective cosmic consciousness that unites humanity. This is not the time to be safe or conservative on any level, but rather a time to jump into the abyss of all of your eccentricities and explore and embrace that which makes you special and unique. Scorpio reminds us to live life the way we want to live it because people will judge you for better or for worse. So you might as well be judged for doing exactly what you want to do instead of living up to the expectation of others. Pisces reminds us that the joys and pains of the past are there to remind us that our passion, creativity and faith will continually carry us forward no matter where we are in the cycle of life. So remember to keep your eyes fixed forward like an olympic contender and always go for the gold. Cancer reminds us that just because we develop a mask or a shell to survive some of th toughest elements and experiences, doesn’t mean that we need to hide in the shell 24/7. Sometimes our shells can become our jail cells when we don’t learn to let go of the negativity of our past choices. Remember to take a dive in the cleansing emotional meridians leading from the cascades of magnetic materialism into the deep sea of healing and rejuvenation. The crystal healing properties of the sea salt structure serve as a reminder of the cosmic history being whispered from Lemuria, Agartha and Atlantis. A history that enourages you to pay attention to the details of your current life, while investigating the details of our shared past lives.
Tetrahedron- Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
Uranus is Aries continues its fierce angle with Pluto throughout this year giving us a sense of chaos when we are actually giving birth to a brighter future. As Uranus in Aries harmonizes with Mars in Aquarius expect unconventional actions to take center stage. This is a great time to showcase that action hero talent for creating something out of nothing while salsa dancing through any hurricane with the strength of ballet dancer and the style and grace of a marenguero. Now is the time for establishing and sticking to desirable habits that are in tune with your dynamic and creative nature so that your inner flame may burn even brighter. Fire is the reason that actions speak louder than words. This makes it time to use the thunderbolt of Jupiter to innovate the passionate percussion of possibility and promise. Aries reminds us that ideas and thoughts can be used as a battering ram for dismantling any order that no longer serves you or your loved ones in a healthy and productive way. Leo reminds us that creativity should never be routine, unless the act of creativity itself is that which you are consistently engaged. The fixed vector equilibrium of the fire sign continuum demands grand recognition and appreciation of the self and the community with the same expansive vigor of Jupiter in Gemini. Sagittarius reminds us that flexible collective efforts, create a diversity that perpetuates the fires of creativity that demand applause for the continual reinvention of fresh approaches to life, love, progress and community development . So don’t be afraid to beat the congas of collaboration and cooperation while innovating growth and change for yourself and humanity.
As the alignments in Capricorn create the squares of disharmony and change along with harmonious alignments, try to make a distinction between that which you can and cannot control. Sometimes letting go of the illusion of control, may mean that the universe is trying to throw you an auspicious gift. The problem: You cannot catch a wonderful new gift being thrown towards you if you are busy using all of your strength and focus to hold onto something that may no longer be helping you grow towards the light. While there are fixed channels between Mars and Saturn, try and remember that change can be very good and control is perhaps another illusion that may be holding you back. The book of change known as the I-ching serves as a reminder that everything between the gates of life and death that is symbolized by Cancer and Capricorn is about change. Understanding the role of change, the necessity of change, the ability to change, the acceptance of change, the surrender to change and the gifts that come from cycle of change. Perhaps the correlation of the primary 64 hexagrams of the I-Ching with the 64 codons of DNA is a small hint that change is the essence of every living being and charged particle in the multiverse? Perhaps the progression from the gate of Cancer to the gate of Capricorn is merely the oscillation of energy from a positive and negative state between existence and ascension? Perhaps the difference between the initiate and the ascended master is merely the difference between energy in an excited state and energy at rest? If it is indeed true that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, perhaps change, like the gates of Cancer and Capricorn, are a spiritual manifestation of the conservation of energy? Like the fool on its journey through the 22 positions of the tarot, the initiate can be represented by the sun’s changes in each sign of the houses of the zodiac. Since the philosophy of astrology is about myths, archetypes and change, perhaps that is the over arching lesson that is the key to deciphering and understanding all of life’s mysteries between the microcosm and the macrocosm of existence? As Above so below, through cosmic history we must go. Spiraling forward through the stargates of incarnation and ascension collectively brings us closer to unity consciousness and apotheosis with our cosmic brothers and sisters. Conga dancing between the cardinal tropical points of the gates of cancer and Capricorn, advances us one step deeper into the Age of Aquarius.
