Put on your serious face, it’s a new moon in Capricorn and it’s conjunct Pluto, it’s truthful, powerful and the vibe is high. Pluto has the last word, unlike other new moons in Capricorn when Saturn, Jupiter, South Node and Mercury were nearby lending a hand to the story, here it’s all about the final death and rebirth of an area of life.
It’s a Capricorn new moon, rules, goals, limits, distance, focus and discipline are part of the new story and road ahead. And it may take all of the Capricorn traits to get you what you want, to get you where you want, and to start something new. Pluto helps pave the way by doing what the great destroyer does best by removing (ending) what’s no longer working or serving you anymore.
Sun and Moon both will cross Pluto in the next few days, emotions will intensify as you feel your way through, Sun highlights the depths of your Pluto’s souls story. Who are you now, you’re not the same person you used to be and that is Pluto’s job to peel back the layers for you to see. In Capricorn it’s a solid exeter that’s coming down to touch upon the gold that’s inside of you. It’s a dark journey, but YOU will be ok!
Pluto is death and dying, transformation and rebirth, the old way has to make way for the new.
So, an area of life doesn’t matter if it’s an inner story, habit, ritual, attitude, thought pattern or an external job, partnership, relationship a major death/rebirth is going to happen, in fact it’s already happening and has been for awhile.
Capricorn is time and timing, look back to January of 2020 and beyond, see how much you’ve already changed, grown and transformed, a lot of external events have shaped you, and Pluto’s influence is for you to keep transforming for your soul to evolve. With this moon make a commitment to yourself to keep working on all that you have learnt (lessons) through 2020 and implement them into your life.

Feeling the last full moon of the year in Cancer, Moon of feeling, emotions, sensitivities, safety/security/comfort, the home and your inner world. Like all full moons it’s an endpoint, culmination and a releasing. After this year it’s a good moon to end on. Moon opposite Sun in Capricorn, work, limits, responsibilities, external world, it can feel like hard work. Balance is now needed between the two, being a Cancer Full Moon, it’s about how you feel, about all that has happened in the Capricorn themes or areas of life.
This Full moon makes a square(separating) to Chiron, the wound, a place of vulnerability. You may be feeling tension around emotional issues or needs, an awareness of the sore spot, just feeling raw/sore/tired, being triggered and poked.
Venus squares Neptune, a glitch, an attachment, what you want or desire may not happen, maybe some disappointment. Neptune takes it away, it’s too foggy or just not realistic or for you. Stay detached here, something else will be coming through, and it’s ok to not know what that may look at for now. Be gentle, caring with yourself if things dissolve.
What helps this Full Moon is the sweet easy aspect to Uranus in Taurus, the release or ending to the tension from Chiron through something new, innovative, better, to move you away from the old. An easy way or path is the go, and you will be shown this or just feel it. It will lift you up, you may feel freer, this is the new way. Release the old dynamic or story.
Saturn and Jupiter both in Aquarius, (Uranus rules), in my books the step towards a better future starts here, what no longer works for you, what does not fit, what doesn’t feel good anymore, look here. All of the insights from the far future taps into the easy aspects to the Sun and Moon.
Make some distance, move away from the old, move into a safer future.
Find peace, calm and a quiet place.

NEW MOON in SCORPIO, 15th November, 2020!
This New Moon harmoniously meets with Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, a new intention or beginnings will have solid future growth connected to it. But…. only if you’re committed!
It’s a Scorpio New Moon, Scorpio themes are hidden, instinctive and private. Something, probably fear based, has been hidden, lurking underneath the surface and it’s been shown to you and it’s time to transform your reality, into power or empowerment of this hidden issue, so you can move and grow. You may find overtime fear has turned into an internal process of strength that has been growing, now it’s finding its place within you, you know it and feel it, you can trust this part of you.
Pluto ruler of Scorpio is death, dying, transformation and eventually rebirth, does connect with this Moon and its helping you to be reborn, Jupiter’s influence, time for growth. Scorpio Moon is asking, whatever is new or beginning, make a commitment to it, you’re either in or out. There’s no middle ground with Scorpio. Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn line up with a sweet sextile to ground, support and make it solid and secure for the next step to growth.
With the New Moon, Venus in Libra hit’s hard to Pluto in Capricorn, unbalanced focus or attraction in areas of love, money or relationships, wherever the struggle is or (who has the power), what’s being shown to you, work with honesty, integrity and courage, find the strength within to overcome, to transform it into a balanced and fair place.
No power plays, leave them out.
Jupiter and Pluto have had the last meet up in Capricorn, first was in April, the story ENDS here. A major digging away of the old structure, fears or beliefs, so growth and expansion can happen.
Mars in Aries is Direct, actions a-go ahead, you can move forward and onwards. Know where you’re going.
Side note, the whole time I was writing this ‘Get you motors running’ by Steppenwolf was running around my head? Why, not sure.

Sun and Moon square Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn.
Opposite Mars Rx in Aries
Venus in Virgo (rules Libra) opposite Neptune Rx in Pisces
North and South Node play out karmic contracts
New Moon squares the big 3 in Capricorn and opposite Mars Rx in Aries, a new beginning or intention in the relationship/partnership area may start with some tension, pressure or crisis.
Libra is finding balance, solutions and being diplomatic about it. It’s also about your relationships, personal or business, plus the one you have with yourself. With Mars Rx in the mix, find your balance and equilibrium, still remembering everyone’s to, but without losing you, your authentic self, wants and needs.
Capricorn is building for the realistic long term, responsibilities, commitments to, who and what, still remembering to not lose sight of you and what you want. Still limits may apply, as you work it out.
Venus in Virgo, how is, this all going to work out, opposite Neptune you may lack faith, trust or may feel disillusioned by it all. Stay focused, work with reality, details, what’s in front of you and keep it simple. Solutions will come when Venus trines Jupiter (19th) or it will get better. Connecting with Jupiter, what you want may expand or grow, unlimited expression may be felt.
Mercury Rx in Scorpio opposite Uranus Rx in Taurus is playing out in the background, freedom from a fear or an emotionally tense place around something you want. They have a story going on 3 meetups are happening.
New Moon, Mars Rx and Venus connect the North (future Gemini) and South (past Sagittarius) Node, soul stories/contracts or soul mates those destined relationships, pay attention to who you’re focused on during his time and what or who shows up.
Don’t go backwards, do old habits/beliefs or reactions, the new path or information will lead the way.
The build up is strong, emotions run deep, but slowly freedom will come.
And as always go check out you own personal birth chart to see in what area of life this is playing out.
This eclipse in Capricorn is wrapping up a story since 2018 when the Cancer/Capricorn eclipses started. An area of your life has been getting worked on. Dealing with the Can/Cap axis it’s themes are around physical, financial security or work, ambition and emotional security or family, emotional needs and self care.
Saturn Rx rules this Moon in Capricorn. Saturn has just moved back into Capricorn, wrapping up some business or an area of life that’s getting a big restructuring. Saturn is commitment, responsibilities and determination to get the job done. The hard work is worth the climb and with Uranus in a trine you may find that it happens quicker or you have a new sense of freedom and ease then you had before.
Full Moon’s are a culmination and completion point with Eclipses the energy stays around for months. And as you know Eclipses, as some may say is a “wild card” energy or theme and you just don’t know what that may be. As always, go look at your personal birth chart to see the area’s of life it’ been happening in since July 2018.
Breaking down the barriers, the only way through is with kindness…..feeling every little heartfelt moment at a time.
I have the Cancer/ Capricorn Nodes in my birth chart, and I have to say, when I first learnt about the Nodes, the key to work through some karma, the place to head towards I was excited, until I realised I would have to discover and enter the world of my feelings, emotions, being vulnerable and then I just got scared, what is this place?, I asked myself. Then of course I felt them ALL!
Over time of course it gets easier, I did feel more comfortable with them, I did settle into them, I still long for the good old days when I was too busy to feel, it’s always going to feel better to me if I don’t have to feel/care and don’t have to connect, let something in. Because if you stop for long enough, let all of the feelings in, it kinda creates a mashup of madness, hysteria, love and joy, it’s one big melting pot.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma, enter into cardinal signs of Cancer (North) and Capricorn (south), the Nodes are re-directors. With them changing into Cancer/Capricorn you’re headed for the Cancer nodal axis to help you on the path.
Feeling! yes, feelings are going to be a major player in this one, you gotta feel them, follow the path that feels right, follow your heart. It’s less about the “shoulds”, doing or being task or goal oriented, this is still part of it, of course but now your compass is attached to the feeling zone to direct you. This may make you uncomfortable particularly if you hate doing that job, or if you just cannot stand that thing or person, if you’re just not “feeling it” anymore this is where you are going to get really uncomfortable and tired.
Sometimes you can forget who you are! with all the working, achieving and doing that you do. Helps you to focus on the external world, and to disconnect from self.
The way forward is through the inner world of self, feeling, getting back in touch with you. This is where the true security lies, being emotionally self-reliant, to be able to bend and flow, with whatever life brings your way.
So when your asked how are you feeling, now is a good time to know.
You’re leaving behind a place you know well, the South Node (Capricorn) it’s the physical, material, financial realms, the work you do, task orientated, the goals you set for yourself, the rules, being the authority, structures and guidelines, patriarchy, the old ways of doing, being detached, cold and aloof. These are all still important, however it’s now time to put a little feeling, love, kindness and care into all that you do…..you can loosen up.
South Nodes deal with karma…..that word! Past karma, past lives, the yesterdays of your life. What you need to sort out this life. This is also familiar territory, you know well, very easy to stay with what you know.
The North Node is the future, possibility of making changes. Not so familiar path that’s uncomfortable to you, especially for the work alcoholic, the doer, likes the rules or lives a rigid structured life, in Cancer/Capricorn, which is what you will be working with here.
North Node is what you gotta do, to master the South, to sort this out. And like I said earlier it’s about feelings, self-care, having a rest, relaxing a little or even a lot.
So, if you’re tired, take a rest.
Stop with the “shoulds”
Take the time to nurture yourself.
If you’re going to fast, slow it down, stop and smell the flowers along the way.
Sit with your feelings.
Ask yourself, how safe, secure, supported and protected do you feel.
The Nodes it’s a 18 year cycle. The last times we had the Nodes in Cancer-Capricorn
April 10, 2000 – October 31, 2001
September 25, 1981 – March 16, 1983
December 24, 1962 – August 25, 1964.
November brings in some changes, big changes, hope you’re ready.
Some stories or themes will still be playing out as some planets are still Rx and have to do their thing, before they wrap a story.
Mercury goes Rx, which is always a treat.
Jupiter is going home into Sagittarius, Jupiter’s is a 12 year cycle, and now the big planet is home, (Jupiter rules Sag). After spending a year in Scorpio, where Jupiter took you to some scary places within. Once Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you may be able to turn all of the emotional experiences into wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Sagittarius is the sign to help you understand what the hell that was all about, not just about you but the world you live in.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma move out of Leo/Aquarius and into Cancer/Capricorn.

On the 27th this planet of action is going Direct, being in Capricorn a more serious, goal and focused sign he can take you forward, this time you find that the goal or future plans that you tried to take, have a better chance of happening, as the earth sign is about manifestation.
With his entering back into the sign of the Goat, he needed to get a better grip or secure footing for the road or purpose ahead.
Mars – planet of action, passion and desire.

Help you to get what you want through action, being in Capricorn, you gotta work to get it.
Mars is strong in Capricorn.

NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS
New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this time. As with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.
Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.
Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.
Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.
Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.
Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.
SUN conjunct PLUTO!
Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.
VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.
Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.
Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.
Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.
