Before the start of this new cycle different opportunities to take care of our self-interests, especially what the near future concerns, beckoned, of which we could have taken advantage if we chose to bridge certain problems so that healing or a sense of unity or even camaraderie could ensue. And although we might have felt a bit overwhelmed by everything that was revealed and had to be processed and accepted without further fighting it, we know now that we aren’t alone in this and that there’s always some kind of help or support available. Moreover, our responsibilities or chores may have increased lately or there may have been more demands or requests placed on us, requiring from us to manage these limitations or burdens realistically and in a timely and organized manner, in particular in regard to the financial, material and contractual aspects (terms of engagement) of these matters.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 19:13 Capricorn states:
“A hidden choir is singing during a religious service. Keynote: The fulfillment of the individual’s creative function through his participation in a group performance consecrated to a transcendent realization of unity – the ideal of PLENITUDE of Being.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Page 241)
It is critical that we keep up our faith and trust that things will work out in the end. We just need to review our options together with the opportunities and possibilities offered to us so that we can find solutions for our various dilemmas, which means that instead of focusing on the complications in certain relationship situations, we need to convince ourselves that we shall overcome this too and will eventually succeed one way or the other if we just get our affairs sorted out and in order and our stuff together, which will enable us to influence events or developments and to draw from our resourcefulness in the process. This is the first New Moon of the New Year – therefore, it has relevance for the whole year. 🙂
Tarot card of the day is the “6 of Wands”, suggesting that things are changing in a positive way. There is the possibility of acclaim and acknowledgment. It could be our day to shine or we could be coming out on top. We strive to be successful and seek to promote ourselves more frequently in order to gain the recognition we desire. However, it is important that we keep the ego in check.
