If my Facebook feed is anything to go by, we are as fascinated by eclipses in the 21st century as the ancients were before us. As the main light sources of bygone eras, when the light of the Sun or Moon was eclipsed, it was seen as a powerful and often frightening omen.
Mental powers can be strong under this deep and probing influence. Strategising, planning and producing is heightened, and what you need to do or organise can become crystal clear. Shaking off distractions and focusing on your deepest desires, goals or plans can help.
This New Moon falls in a close conjunction with Venus, who is just about ready to exit Capricorn. Fresh from her Cazimi last week, she too is at the beginning of a new cycle. This offers an opportunity to start afresh on relationship or emotional matters. Unlike mountain goats, humans are social creatures who do rely on support from our lovers and friends. Your goals will be easier to obtain with help and influence of those you love.
Generally, when a rare astrological transit occurs, there will be an obvious embodiment of that at a public or global level. With this weeks powerful and intense triple conjunction between the Sun, Venus and Pluto, was demonstrated via Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globe speech.
Whether you’re single or partnered, this a rare and opportune time to assess your value to others and theirs to you. Evaluate your situation in important relationships including friends and colleagues. Are you getting less than what you’re worth, financially and/or emotionally?
