New moon in Capricorn + Solar Eclipse: Let It Be
Late Christmas night at 11:13 pm CST, the moon will be new in the earthy sign of Capricorn. Not only is this the last new moon of the year, but it’s also a Solar Eclipse. A new moon occurs when the sun and moon are in the same sign at the exact same degree—in this particular case both the sun and moon will be at four degrees Capricorn.
A Solar Eclipse happens when the moon partially or totally blocks out the sun, meaning we’re immersed in lunar energy, and lunar energy is feminine energy. While solar energy is masculine and outwardly directed, feminine energy is receptive and inwardly directed. We approach life through our dreams, intuition, and feelings. While the solar strives to do, the lunar just wants to be. Which means we end the year being more concerned with what is going on inside us.
This is a very fortunate solar eclipse because Jupiter, the planet of good luck and good fortune, will conjunct both the sun and moon giving us a sense of hope and optimism about the future. Capricorn is an earth sign and the natural ruler of the 10th house of career and public recognition, while new moons are about new beginnings. During this last new moon of the year, find some quiet time and really pay attention to your feelings around work and career. Again, you don’t have to do anything right now. Just notice your thoughts and feelings. What would you like to see happen in the career sector of your life? If things didn’t go as you hoped or planned during 2019, know that this solar eclipse is like a big cosmic reset button.
In addition, Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and a conjunction to the sun and moon expands our feelings of joy, optimism, and hope. With a new attitude, you say yes to life. You seek and find solutions to problems that once seemed impossible.
Numerology 2020: Go Big or Go Home
In numerology 2020 will be a universal 4 year (2 + 0 + 2 + 0=4). Keywords associated with a 4 year are vision, commitment, long term goals, work, potential, and limits. In 2020, the Universe will bring to our attention all the ways we play small or hold ourselves back. We come face to face with all of our excuses and the ways we limit ourselves.
In the coming year really pay attention to those times when you feel frustrated, like you’re spinning your wheels and getting nowhere. When you feel like you’re banging your head against the same wall, doing the same thing you’ve always done and getting the same results you’ve always gotten—stop and realize that it isn’t about the other person, it’s about you.
In a four cycle, our frustration comes from trying to cram ourselves into roles and situations we’ve outgrown. There are certain circumstances and people that aren’t bringing you to life. Maybe they did at one time in your life, but now they’re just draining you. Order is another keyword associated with the four cycle. If you’re life or work environment is in disarray, getting organized pays off in 2020.
Hematite is very grounding and would be a great stone to have with you in the coming year.
A good power mantra would be, “I turn every obstacle into an opportunity.”
