The New Year really starts at this first New Moon. All New Moons are powerful but an eclipse is especially so.
Look at the chart and you can see that there are 5 planets and the North Node (destiny) in Capricorn.
Our consciousness is ‘rebooted’ at an eclipse
At the time of an eclipse the stream of solar energy – ultra violet, x rays and electromagnetic energy – is interrupted for a few minutes. It’s a day for meditation and going within. It’s not a time for launching a new business. Wait a day or two.
