In General: This month’s Capricorn New Moon falls importantly, on New Year’s Day. Now, we can focus on real-world, attainable long-term goals, prepare for the future, make commitments, identify responsibilities and cultivate our dreams in a realistic way. Pluto will be joining this new Moon encouraging some very strong structural transformation in many of our lives. The seeds you plant for this first New Moon of the Year 2014 are seeds of the long term future. It will be an outstanding moon for starting something over again, following an old dream, or just shifting direction in general. This new Moon not only aligns with Pluto but also with Mercury in Capricorn and forms a dynamic cardinal grand cross pattern with Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Libra. Set your New Year resolutions with care and thought this New Year’s Eve! Venus is still retrograde this week but it is in a good relationship to Saturn in Scorpio. This makes an excellent time for finding ways to clear up any residual relationship issues. Most of us won't be partying so hard on this New Year's Eve and by the start of the New Year, we will be putting our noses to the grindstone, clearing up unfinished business and reviewing our ideas of what is and isn’t working in our lives. It is wise to plan well, be generally conservative, thrifty and patient this week. If you have a birthday this week then it’s a major year for you guys, one of creation and change! On the world scene it is likely older woman will make the news and woman’s issues in general. Unexpected changes and events that revolve around power struggles and the need to break free of restrictions can also have their beginnings this week. Locally give extra thought to your New Year’s resolutions!
Thought for the week: Let our New Year's resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word. Goran Persson
This can be a stressful week for Aries, but by taking a back seat and observing as opposed to running wildly in the thick of things as you are want to do, you can mitigate this stress. Trying to be too outspoken or independent will only leave you under attack from others now. Be a gentle version of yourself!
Patience and your usual charming charisma will bring some nice benefits your way. Do make a point of listening to others though. Don’t get involved in animated debates or quarrels. Just listen well and smile. Your positive outlook will have a good effect on others around you who are struggling at this time.
Whilst the new Moon seems to be affecting those around you with tension and anxiety you seem to be in your own little bubble! It can actually be a great time for Gemini, when things suddenly seem to make sense and fall into place! Your good humour will prove to be spreadable. Make others happy!
This can be a tense and irritating week for you guys with some delays and general changes in plans all too common! There is a tendency for you to act out of character and become you least attractive self now! Try to take a back seat where you can and wait for this week to pass before over-reacting to situations and people.
It’s a great week to observe and reflect and a poor week for interacting with others and verbalizing your concerns! Most things will be taken out of context and misunderstood! Meditation, long quiet walks with yourself and early nights will do you the most good now. Be uncharacteristically quiet and you will find
It will be smooth sailing for Virgos this week. There will be few obstacles to deal with. You will be productive and your efforts will be appreciated. Peaceful and generous times like this don’t come around that often! Relax and enjoy yourself! Just be careful not to let others bully you, go at your own speed!
You need to be cautious with yourself and your assets now! It can be a stressful new Moon for many of you and you will need to exercise an overall restraint! A lot of baggage can be cleared now but you need to trust your initial instincts and not over think things. Be careful with what you say!
Make an extra big effort to stay productive this week. Many of your future endeavors will be based on your approach to responsibility and power now. Short term pain for long term gain is the key. If you can stay positive whilst putting in the hard yards you will magnify the good results.
This is a gentle week for you guys and going with the flow seems not only the most natural but also the best thing to do now! A lot of pressure seems to be lifted off your shoulders now and you can feel as if life is getting easier again! Do be careful not to make promises without first thinking through the responsibilities you are taking on.
Stress can build up between what you want and what others around you want, this week. There is an unfortunate potential for arguments and clashes now. The challenge is for you to uphold patience, listen well, and then do what you know you need to for yourself without being confrontational about it.
This is a generally positive week for Aquarius. Communication is highlighted in a valuable way and others will be willing to help you wherever there is a need. It is a favoured time for long term planning and organizing. You are better than usual at making strong decisions this week.
This a good week for you guys. You will find yourself in the right place at the right time, more often than not. You may find yourself helping to alleviate the tensions around others, and you will be regarded highly for this. Enjoy the increased popularity and the good vibes this week.
