This week Mars completes his ninth and final square to Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter. If you’re feeling like you can’t take any more then that sounds about right!
Uranus is now freshly aligned with Mars in Taurus so we may finally find ourselves crumbling under the restrictions (Saturn) that curb our freedom (Uranus).
Symbolically it’s as though everything we went through last year has been preparing us for this moment.
As we begin to sort through the rubble of whatever structures were brought to their knees by Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn last year, we are offered the extra inner resources to break through any final obstacles standing in our way.
Needless to say this is a super explosive and argumentative energy. Mars has been rubbing back and forth across the skies for months, cutting through the structures and institutions (Capricorn) that have no future in the Aquarian Age.
This month sees the final blow. With Uranus only recently involved there’s a feeling that this build up of tension can no longer be repressed.
But despite the possibility of riots and rebellion this tense energy is important in bringing forth the new world. This frustration and urgency needs to happen in order to progress.
New Moon in Capricorn, January 13th, 2021
Today’s new moon in Capricorn aligns with Pluto offering the chance to rid yourself of any bad habits or addictions.
She also aligns with spiritual Neptune. Be honest about whatever it is that needs to end and be done with it, once and for all.
However, aim to take the moderate road, methodically and calmly. The last thing you want to do over the next couple of weeks is to dig your heels in or jump the gun.
Your best bet right now is to try to relax and find a compromise, wherever possible. You’ll soon find you’re able to change whatever it is that has been holding you back.
The reward at the other side is some of the most romantic, uplifting and glorious astrological aspects you could wish for. The relief will be huge, just wait until late February / early March. You’ll see.
A little glimpse of sweetness will pop up tomorrow courtesy of Venus in Capricorn shining a light on Uranus and Mars in Taurus. This is a nice little alignment to excite and keep you feeling like life is worth living during this ridiculous time.
A quick tip – the celestial landscape in 2021 is very different to the past few years and is going to take a little time to settle into. When you become aware of anything that might have passed its sell by date, try to relinquish control.
Allow your intuition to guide you. You should become clear quite quickly which parts of your life are in need of updating and what is no longer working in your best interests.
The crystal for this month’s new moon in the BLUE Ivory Gloss box was aragonite.
Sit in a meditative position with the aragonite crystal in front of you. Begin by practising gratitude for all the things in your life that support you. Now, remember something brave you have done and how you experienced it. Feel this warm feeling of bravery radiate out from your chest, your solar plexus and your heart.
When you are ready, think of a challenge or a weakness you would like to work on. Create a supportive song, poem or story about how you managed to overcome it.
