Lunar Astrology: Moon Reflections & More for January 2013

Happy New Year 2013 to you! May it be a year of great wisdom and inner growth, health, love and abundance for you!

I don’t know about you but lately I feel time is speeding up like crazy. It is customary around New Year to reflect upon what happened for us in the passing year. Didn’t we just do that?

With five planets and the New Moon in Capricorn, the sign associated with wisdom, maturity, old age and the physical realities of time and space, we are in alignment with the stars for a reality check and a moment of truth. It is also a great time to envision what directions you would like your life to take in the foreseeable future.

The Sun and Moon conjunction forming the New Moon is starting a new cycle. This gives us the possibility to truly show up in life as a mature, responsible participant, treating others as we would like to be treated. I believe a lot of suffering in the world could be alleviated if everybody would follow this idea.

With Mercury joining this conjunction you will be able to bring awareness around your personal sense of reliability and self-organization. On the low end of possibilities it could also bring out feelings of melancholy, with the supercharged Capricorn and his ruler Saturn in the intense sign of Scorpio. It is a time for the Truth.

Pluto is the God of the underworld and deep transformation, of death and rebirth and will be in Capricorn till the year 2024. His ongoing square (2012 – 2015) engaging
with Uranus, the God of earthquakes and revolution, has provided us with many fireworks in our personal lives and of course in the political and social realms.

All the client readings I gave lately were about the question, ‘how to integrate the tremendous challenges of Neptune, Pluto and Uranus into their lives’.

The most pressing question is always around how you can reinvent yourself and what you can do when your life is falling apart.

If you know how to walk the higher ground, how that would look for you, you can orient yourself accordingly. You can offer the “planetary Gods” your insight and the law of synchronicity can trigger magic. We are truly magical beings in a magical universe if we know how to work the universal laws.

Throughout the month Venus will travel into a conjunction with Pluto and relationships will be the playground for major adjustments.

New Moon in Capricorn
Capricorn is also concerned about governmental organization, societal structures, power and control. The dark face of Pluto in Capricorn is showing its face in brutal ways, trying to control the masses, the revolutionary momentum and evolutionary change everywhere in the world.

For you and me personally, it is important to have awareness of where our deepest fears of change lie and how we try to control them–because we try to control the uncontrollable and we could use that energy to move forward into new dimensions and new experiences.


Full Moon in Leo
When the Full Moon is culminating in Leo, the Sun has to be in Aquarius. Aquarius represents the morphogenetic field of group consciousness and human evolution. Your individual work of integration of higher consciousness into your daily life has an impact on the whole. Our personal identifications with ego and self-image, gender, race, religion and country will shape the global manners of how we are treating each other on a bigger scale.

Leo in its highest expressions is the sign of self-empowerment and creative contribution as a benign leader and force. This can work well for you in setting yourself up for a successful year.

With the Sun in Aquarius, you can clarify your highest vision for this coming year now. Ask yourself: Who do you want to be in these times of tremendous changes? Who do you want to be for yourself, your family and friends and your community?
