Astrology Article: A Positive Outcome and Bright Future
This New Moon is the perfect time to pull up a chair and to sit down with the intent to recount all the good that’s taking place in your life. You’ll feel a natural urge to recognize the harmony surrounding your circumstances. With the right focus, you will be able to see how your past activities and decisions have shaped your current situation toward a positive outcome.
This isn’t the appropriate time to look for mistakes or to embrace any regrets or negative ideas about karma. Instead, feel and appreciate the positive indicators of your progress. These may be hiding, even in plain view, so look beyond the obvious. The New Moon is bringing this positive type of awareness to your consciousness for the purpose of expanding your sense of plenitude and abundance. What’s actually expanding within this awareness is your own creativity, as it begins functioning in harmonious ways.
Focus your attention on any experiences of fulfillment as well as any new developments that may be occurring around you. As we enter the new year there is a definite buzz, or feeling, that there is a positive shift taking place in the world. Not all of us will experience the shift in a positive way, but with a little bit of “occult” knowledge, and the innocent expression of love and joy, you can begin to shift things in a more positive frame of reference.
“Occult” knowledge in this case is nothing more than a recognition of spiritual forces working behind the scenes for the betterment of humanity. It’s also a measure of the practical development of your own higher sensitivities, resulting from regular practices of seeking higher consciousness.
As you move deep into this Lunar month and closer to the Full Moon, spend some time reflecting on your positive achievements and your goals for the year ahead. The world is plentiful, full of harmony and love. Use your occult knowledge of the spiritual force of good to embrace your hidden source of plenitude and inner wealth.
Whenever four or more planets are tightly packed together astrologers refer to the formation as a stellium. This New Moon has the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Pluto all working together for a very positive outcome. (The Sun and Moon are technically not planets, but in this case the term “planets” refers to all celestial bodies.)
The New Moon always introduces a new type of positive energy for humanity to embrace and then integrate. Adding Mercury and Pluto to the archetype of Capricorn makes this New Moon stand out because of the way these planets interact with the natural practicality contained in the Earth element of Capricorn.
One of the practical aspects of Capricorn lies in the ability to mobilize your own power as an expression of personal wealth. This wealth is valuable as it brings together a sense of group effort for a harmonious and common good. Pluto adds the pure power of transforming body, mind, and spirit to work with Mercury. This Pluto / Mercury combination allows for good decision-making as you count your blessings and see the positive results.
Over the past two weeks, I have looked ahead at every New Moon and Full Moon for the entire coming year. We all have a powerful year ahead of us, with some incredibly positive energies coming in March and April. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year and wish the same for you. Blessing to all my friends.
