The Moon is encased in lead and steel during this New Moon phase. We have 6 planets in Capricorn which is adding a very serious tone to our lives at this time. Capricorn rules structure, stability, effort, and time- all of which are being illuminated. New Moons are times of self-awareness, so you will be seeing the harshness of the structures that have been created in the Capricorn ruled area of your life. You will feel frustrated as you want to change it up and break free from the tower you have been imprisoned in. However, Saturn will make sure that you first do your time in order for you to understand how you can knock it down and start anew. There’s tension building with the square to Uranus because you and Capricorn both know that it’s going to take time and effort. In order to fix the problem, you first have to know what the problem is.
The walls will crumble……………..eventually.
The song Walls Fall Down by Bedouin Soundclash is so fitting for this lunation. Just take a look at these lyrics
‘A bit unassured, a bit insecure
I climbed up and I saw the world I lacked
And my first stone cracked, foundations collapsed
Standing on the ground in stone I’d found’
The Tower card in the Tarot is also a great representation for this NM. The tower is the Capricornian structure we have built and the square from Uranus is the lightning strike that hits the tower. We won’t be falling off of our tower at this time, but just like the tarot card suggests, it’s the realization that you are off course and wrong that is the hardest to deal with.
