New Moon January 2020 ~ Tempting Baubles

New Moon January 24 2020 falls at 4º Aquarius. New Moon January 2020 astrology is square Uranus. New Moon healing crystal is the Kambaba Jasper. Fixed Stars are Dabih & Giedi in constellation Capricorn. New Moon tarot card is the 5 Of Swords.

The New Moon January 2020 is conjunct the fixed star Dabih in the head of the goat and Giedi which are the two stars in the goats horns. This new moon speaks of the youthful tendency to live in the moment and become a slave to Venus and her tempting baubles. When we are young we want to gorge all the sweets in the shop without thinking of the consequences, when we are older we learn the value of deferred gratification. The new moon makes a promise, that if you do indeed make a sacrifice, then you shall be handsomely rewarded.

New Moon In Aquarius Decan 1

The needy embryonic Moon is not comfortable in a decan that is so much about cutting the umbilical cord to freedom. It is also one that will tend to rebel against its mother country and feel at odds in whatever home they find themselves. The Moon here is continually searching for the ‘Promised Land’  but rarely finds it. This new moon Aquarius 1 is so idealistic, that it finds squaring its high expectations with earthly domestic reality extremely hard.

However, by the end of the month, any alienation that is felt matures into great self-sufficiency. The ability to look after oneself then is in turn bestowed upon the various waifs and strays that this new moon can attract. At this time we might find ourselves providing temporary accommodation for those making difficult life transitions. A cosmic home is found amongst other outsiders.

This post contains my notes for this New Moon January 2020. The video above pulls all the elements together and summarises the lunation’s energy and uses. I also talk about relevant moon/matrix issues that are pertinent to the current moon ‘spell’ and how we can best heal from them.

New Moon Fixed Star ~ Dabih & Giedi I & II

Although this New Moon occurs in tropical Aquarius, visually it falls in the sidereal constellation of Capricorn. The great Babylonian sky watchers assigned the following meanings for these stars.

Giedi Prima 3º “Peculiar events, unexpected losses and gains, sometimes great good fortune.” [1]
Dabih 4º “Successful in business but retires under a cloud, favourable for wealth, influential position but scarcely realises ambitions, trouble through opposite sex, deserved criticism and censure.” [2]

Giedi Prima and Giedi Secunda are two stars in the right horn of Capricornus the goat. These stars glow, yellow, ash and lilac. Capricorn is actually a sea-goat with a fishes tail. He is said to be Pan who fled to Egypt chased by Typhon. He escaped by turning his body into partly a goat and partly a fish.

“Hence comes a restless quality in their lives and a mind which is often changed and floats this way and that; the first half of the sign is the slave of Venus, and that with guilt involved, but a more virtuous old age is promised by the conjoined fish below.”

Giedi Prima “It gives beneficence, sacrifice and offering.” Giedi Secunda is “ Associated with piety and self-sacrifice.” All the stars in Aquarius decan 1 are found in the head part of the goat. Dahib in the head is a Venus/Saturn flavoured, orange and sky blue star that tends to be melancholic.

New Moon January ~ Tarot Card

5 of swordsThe tarot card associated with this decan is the 5 of swords. Its Tarot meaning is not that pleasant, and it is seen as being self-serving or as someone who profits from the anguish of others. Karmically we have to look at this card as meaning this decan has suffered abuse from ruthless actions or has even been the perpetrator of harsh behaviour. Altair’s Eagle in this decan is a predator so it is not surprising there can be a sharp edge to this decan.

“The Five of Swords can sometimes symbolise the overcoming of inner demons and negative mindsets. The battle fought for personal freedom would not have come quickly or easily….This battle may have been a personal challenge for you and one that others believed you could not succeed in.” ~ Teachmetarot.

So being born into this decan gives you the tools to fight deftly with intellect. Swords generally symbolise swift and decisive thinking.

New Moon Crystal ~ Kambaba Jasper

kambaba jasper“Kambaba Jasper is a stone of Peace and Tranquility, imbued with the nourishing green energy of Nature. Its dark mystic circles and deep green swirls comforts and protects, calms and relaxes, soothing troubled minds and restoring balance to the body and spirit.

Its slow steady frequency expands one’s ability to focus and is a remarkable aid in meditation, granting the release of negative thoughts and feelings, especially those that plague one’s consciousness on a continual basis. Stimulating the Heart Chakra, Kambaba Jasper draws wisdom from its ancient life energies and encourages one to open the heart to loving the self and others more fully, and increases the ability to receive love in return.” ~ Crystal Vaults

“Like all Jaspers, Kambaba Jasper alleviates stress and induces tranquility. Its cleansing effect eliminates negative energy and stabilizes the aura. It makes an ideal worry or rubbing stone for soothing the nerves and increasing one’s focus, and is a wonderful stone for banishing nightmares or harmful thoughts. Kambaba Jasper is particularly conducive to deep and peaceful sleep.”

This crystal is known as the worry stone and great for reducing anxiety if you hold it in your hand and rub it.

  1. So appropro ….This decan of the New Moon is merely 2 degrees ahead
    of my natal Moon. (& I have mutual reception with Uranus).

    I have been living w a great couple whom I have known for years
    but there really is NOT room enough for 3 people to live comfortably. (ie. only 1 person can fit in the narrow kitchen @ one time or else we
    inevitably bump [email protected] other). Up until now I have maintained my patience
    but now I am jumping out of my skin living here. I WILL NOT make any move
    now…because I refuse to make an impulsive move. I am determined to
    make a planned move & perhaps I will be rewarded for this…THANKS MARINA, Joey
