According to the folks at StarIQ, “Normally, the New Moon in Capricorn spawns seeds of construction and ambition. However, with potent Pluto and pungent Mars nearby, there may be some serious cleaning up and purging required to clear the way before new projects can get off the ground.
“Spending more time in preparation for your next major endeavor can be a vital step toward ensuring success. It is vital, as well, to prioritize your time and resources since serious Capricorn will reward efforts applied to an important tasks but will penalize those who are easily distracted and spend their time on trivial pursuits.”
In addition, with Saturn, which rules Capricorn, turning retrograde on the 31st next week and staying there till mid-May, this will be the time to “tie up loose ends, refine systems and gain additional training and experience before the next rush forward. While this may delay the advance of major projects, it provides opportunities to reverse harmful rules and repair weak spots for individuals and within organizations.”
And according to astrologer Starweaver, “The theme for this Moon is Finding Your Discipline.
“Mercury and Saturn (and, less intensely, Jupiter) are collaborating now to develop a clear recipe for making things work and getting things done.
“The Sun and Moon are united now in seeking to make a difference, and Mars is enlisted to help, although his influence is on the wane now. There is an opportunity now, however, to settle into useful habits and basically ‘get your act together.’
“This requires some self-examination and some insight into our own style of working and organizing time. Divination tonight can be helpful if you need a clearer picture of what your daily routine should look like, or what steps you need to chart out on your way to your goal.”
He suggests the following questions for this Moon:
How do I keep myself on track?
What old habit do I need to drop?
What new habit do I need to acquire?
What is the relationship between process and goal?
