As the Ceres-Eris sextile perfects, the Sun in Capricorn moves into this aspect with a square to Eris in Aries and a quincunx to retrograde Ceres in Gemini, while at the same time casting a semi-square to Chiron in Pisces and a sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Jupiter in Gemini. Conceding our defeat, we have to cut our losses and lick our wounds, letting go off dreams and visions that didn’t work out. However, the ‘game’ is not over yet. Although we may have lost this round, we still have a chance to emerge victoriously at the end if we don’t give up now, but get up on our feet and fight, realizing that as long as there is a will there is a way and that we can overcome this setback as well if we put things into perspective and keep trying and working for results, recognizing that there are always other options available and that this crisis is ‘just’ a bump in the road that challenges us to go into ‘survivor mode’ and self-preserve. Therefore, it is critical that we bring forth our competitive spirit and focus on what we can do in this situation, while taking the initiative to reconnect with people who have been a source of support. This is the prelude to the Capricorn New Moon that will transpire at 2:43 pm EST and correlates to a time when we plant the seeds for our ambitions.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 21:45 Capricorn states:
“By accepting defeat gracefully, a general reveals nobility of character. Keynote: The realization that one may grow through defeat as well as, and perhaps more than, through success – INNER STRENGTH.”
