The New Moon December 2016 in Capricorn decan 1: This decan contains the most notorious nebula Facies. This star group is found floating infront of the eye of the archer of Sagittarius. The similarity with the name Facies and Fascist is impossible to ignore when Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and Marine Le Pen have their Moon in this decan. Indeed, some of the traits of Capricorn 1 are actually pretty similar to a fascist mindset, wether you like it or not. Still, Fascism’s bad-ass reputation fits, since Capricorn 1 is used to being exiled. The Moon here often has to dish out tough love, and for this it is never thanked until far into the future. Not that it bothers them, the goat Moon does not care much for fawning appreciation anyhow.

Fascism arises out of a national emergency, where things have got so bad that a strongly authoritarian leader is necessary to rein in the chaos. Moon Capricorn 1 is the perfect ‘parent’ for the job, when the ‘children’ of the State are causing anarchy. “Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature, and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation.” ~ Wiki
Fascismo is an Italian term and comes from Fascio meaning ‘a bundle of rods’. This suggests strength through unity, as a single rod is easily broken, but a bunch is really hard to snap. The Moon here generally signifies the family unit and a strong family is also hard for the state to dominate. Family loyalty is then of utmost importance and by extension, so is tribal loyalty, wether it be to the nation or a common-interest group.
The Moon by itself does not have any dignity at all here, so it depends on the co-operation of others to succeed. Moon Capricorn 1 has a sense of working together for a long term goal. Harsh Northern Capricorn winters breed those of tough stock and who know that a solo man will surely starve. Family unity is strength, just like the bundle of rods. Hillary Clinton knew the strenght of that meme only too well, for her campaign slogan was ‘Stronger Together’…
New Moon December 2016 ~ Fixed Star Facies
Facies “The nebula in the Archer’s Face is of the nature of the Sun and Mars, and causes blindness, defective sight (all nebula can cause blindness), sickness, accidents and a violent death.” So says Robson, but Eric Morse goes into much more detail and gives a positive side:
“Much blamed for accidents and broken limbs and so on…. Naturally, there is a positive side to Facies, it symbolises well that kind of Sagittarian who goes out to climb mountains, race cars, enter the ski-jump team or the Grand National steeplechase, making it right to the top and no doubt breaking a few bones along the way….they go out on missions, set up their own churches and centers, engage in good works of famine or refugee relief and so on.” .
Bernadette Brady is more damning about this star saying; “represents the penetrating stare of a lethal weapon. It is one of the most difficult, and possibly the most violent, objects in the heavens. It gives a penetration of action that has no regard for others…Facies in a chart will indicate that the planet it touches will be very focused and driven…the push to achieve goals and aims may well become ruthless.”
