January's New Moon in Capricorn:
The New Moon on January 13th carries an extremely intense and complex energy. The aspects and the aspect patterns associated with this New Moon point to a crisis resulting from the combination of unexpected change and buildup of frustration and tension. But the Venus trine Mars-Uranus, in conjunction with the semisextile aspects help relieve the tension and frustration and create great opportunities for development. You may feel like you are being forced to confront deep-seated problems and challenges but facing these challenges lead to soul evolution.
