New Moon January 2022 ~ Golden Eye


The New Moon 2 January 2022 falls at 12º Capricorn Decan 2. Aspect: Trine Uranus. Fixed Star: Nunki in the Archer’s Vane. Tarot Card: 3 Of Pentacles. Healing Crystal: Snowflake Obsidian

The new moon January 2022 falls in Capricorn decan 2, which is a tough placement such a sensitive body. Instead of home comforts, the new moon seeds are expected to grow in a fairly spartan environment. The land here is hard and dry, so it will take some toil to make it fertile. Much depends on carefully organizing structures to yield the best results from this new moon.

This month will probably be one of hard knocks and deferred gratification then. It will be hard for anyone touched by this solar eclipse to be empathetic to anyone who might be lagging behind due to domestic problems. They will have to maintain a ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ approach.

Because of the background seductive Venus retrograde effect, there is an element of using one’s sexual allure to seal a business deal. Those touched by this moon should beware of a potential partner who seems quite blown away by your money, popularity or influence. This new moon is quite an insidious, gold-digging one could we get easily carried away by flattery.

This new moon in Capricorn decan 2 can be elitist, but the material gain that comes with this decan is usually well earned and deserved. The evolved native does not become complacent, nor expect rewards to be handed to them on a plate. Everything is worked hard for, and material gains are valued and reinvested for future generations.

The New Moon is the focal point of an eye aspect pattern. (comprised of one sextile and two semi-sextile.) It means the new moon is the midpoint of Mars and Saturn. The Mars/Saturn midpoint can signify a fear of action, suppressing passions, feeling sexually inadequate (Venus retrograde further amplifies this), creativity can feel inhibited. However, these planets are sextile, which means there is a positive way to use this energy. It can give great stamina, technical skill and ambition to artistic projects. 

Sun and Moon at the Mars/Saturn midpoint

Sun: One long-term goals are reached by focusing one’s energy in a practical and organized fashion. A lack of self-confidence which creates a fear of asserting oneself. Moon: The emotional need to know what the outcome of one’s actions will be. When you feel insecure, you limit your field of action. To be overly sensitive to criticism or negative reactions coming from other people.” John Sandbach

The secret to using this Moons energy if it touches your natal chart is being persistent and carefully organising your timetable. Energy conservation is essential. The trine to Uranus makes this new moon very inventive, and the fixed star on Nunki gives focus.

The eye aspect pattern makes focus a priority at this new moon. Capricorn is a sign that likes to climb the mountain steadily. Keeping your eye on the goal at the top of the mountain is crucial. The eye aspect pattern is the smallest of all the Huber figures. The eye has very Mercurial energy. It is flexible and inquisitive. Look to see where the eye focuses in your natal chart.

In the area of this aspect figure, information is sought and found, everything is observed in detail, nothing escapes the ‘eagle eye’. The eye can also be compared with the radar screen, which rotates to take in all sides, scans the surroundings and records everything it comes across” ~ [1]

fixed star Nunki

Nunki 12º “is an indicator of one who may be expected to be an authoritative orator on Sagittarius and Capricorn topics on business, state or foreign affairs, religion.

In general, Obsidian is a very grounding and protective stone. It is used as a great cleanser of negative energies, helping to remove not only negativity experienced in the environment, but also that of one’s own emotions, such as anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, etc.

Obsidian is often used for healing and releasing energy blockages, and has a tendency to work quickly to move truths to the surface to be resolved.” ~
