We will be experiencing a New Moon, and partial Solar Eclipse tomorrow, January 5, 2019.

This New Moon is at 15 degrees in the sign of Capricorn. This solar eclipse is a partial eclipse which is mainly visible in Asia.

Solar eclipses are said to bring to light any imbalances within the psyche and to also bring together the right and left side of the brain. There is great awareness with this energy, and we may feel as though we can do anything under this influence. There can be a greater potential for insight into what needs balancing in life. Any planets within a three degree orb (some Astrologers use a wider orb) will be influenced by this New Moon Solar Eclipse, especially by conjunction or opposition. The square is also applicable as well as the trine and sextile of course.

The New Moon’s energies are enhanced to a great extent and the beginning of anything new (look to the houses involved) is suggested at this time. A new moon speaks of new beginnings (planting our seeds in the garden of life) and on the opposite end of the lunar cycle, the full moon speaks of the harvest of these seeds that have been nurtured.

In the sign of Capricorn, the new moon energies could be tied to business ventures or a business association or the beginning of a new business. Capricorn will supply the push to propel us forward although with some restraint and perhaps some concerns, which can be a good thing in the long haul. It is not a time for rushing into things. We will need to set the ground work and then once we are comfortable about applying the process, we can begin. Take no short cuts and expect some delays. There is likely to be some hurtles to overcome in the process but think of these as learning opportunities. Do not back down because of fear of failure, and if need be, rethink what your plans might entail.

This is a busy New Moon and it makes several aspects during its influence. The conjunction between the Sun and Moon make a close sextile to Neptune which is at 14 degrees in the sign of Pisces. Sextiles often speak of opportunities and fortunate outcomes but we have to use these energies. If we sit back and expect life to do the work for us, we will be sadly disappointed to realize that things will not unfold the way we had wished they would have.

This is the time for action but realistic action. Do not be led astray by illusionary concepts and use your visual imagination to propel yourself forward. It is always good to visualize the final picture of what it is you are trying to do. Neptune can add to any artistic pursuit or creative endeavour, and you can correlate the mind with the emotions to perfect the adventure.

We also have a conjunction of Saturn to this New Moon Solar Eclipse. Saturn is at 11 degree Capricorn so it will bring clarity and help define the tried and tested rather than something obscure. Saturn knows it will take some hard work to get things off the ground, but offers up perseverance and reliability over the duration of this influence.

Most Astrologers believe that Solar eclipses are strong in their effect for about 6 months, but the overall effect of Solar Eclipses is equivalent in years to the time it lasts; so a three and one half hour eclipse will still be in force 3 ½ years from the time of the eclipse, if it makes close aspects within your natal chart.

We also have a conjunction to Pluto which is at 20 degrees Capricorn. Pluto tends to create needed change although often through dramatic and deep profound avenues. Pluto transforms all it touches. It tears apart anything that needs revamping, puts an end to non-essential matters and asks us to dig deep for the answers we are looking for.

As you can see, the overall influence of this New Moon Solar Eclipse can be quite profound and it will likely uncover those things that need to come to the surface and then push for a change to occur.

Enjoy the energies in place and see what you can do at this time to propel yourself in the direction of choice. Be ready for the end of certain conditions and the beginning of something new, something valid and essential for your spiritual growth and understanding.
