On January 5th, 2019 we are graced with a Capricorn New Moon. The Sun and Moon are joined by a line-up of Capricorn soldiers, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto. All of these planets are activating the sign of hard work, responsibility, structure, utilization, and success.
That means that now is the time to take things apart and look at the underlying structure. Do it so that you can achieve higher heights and better craftsmanship. Your perfect structure will put wind beneath your wings and help you become successful.
An important factor of this symbol is that it describes copying the structure of an existing paper airplane. The process is less creative than just imagining a paper airplane from scratch. That’s important, because at this New Moon there might be a feeling of being limited. There might be a sense that you can’t create freely.
That feeling of restriction may trigger feelings of pessimism and limitation. Just maintain awareness of these emotional tendencies. If you notice them, remember that they are temporary. It is a practical and serious time that is perfect for making solid plans. These plans will help you upgrade, so that you can achieve your highest purpose.
With the Moon making a harmonious glance to Neptune, the planet of dreams, intuition and spirituality, look to your faith for emotional support. Sometimes an overflow of Capricorn energy can make you feel like you need to be scrappy and resourceful. It can make you feel that the weight of the world is on your shoulders. The little voice in your head may say, “You’re not doing enough! Work harder!” Instead of giving that voice full attention, use this Neptunian wave of magic and inter-dimensional insight to help you dream your way out of the effort. Ask your spirit guides for support. Interpret your dreams for guidance. Meditate.
The paper airplane symbol shows that with practicality, the right materials, engineering skills, a plan, and a little hard work— you can take flight. You can cruise up above eye level and gain a little perspective.
Put in the effort to understand the proper steps. Evaluate the materials and resources you have. Operate with caution and practicality at the forefront. With hard work and expert planning, you can create something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Remember not to let the heightened responsibility of this time drag you down emotionally. Your ultimate goal is to utilize your resources and take your life experience to the next level …
Moon conjunct Pluto
A healthy weed.
Strength, power and vivacity. Deep within your imagination there exists a version of yourself who is a resilient fighter. A strong and prolific beast who will keep on going, no matter how tough it gets. Connect with that part of yourself. You are strong. You can keep going and keep growing and find your way to the sun. A weed can be tenacious and beautiful. Power through and flourish
Moon conjunct Saturn
The appendix of a book.
Go into the back of the book and read all the notes. There is more information that you need to know. You can’t skip any parts and you can’t skip any steps.
Hidden away in the back of the book is an author’s note. It’s not meant to be read or found, but it must be included, either because of law or custom. It’s a note about fear.
Fear is often hidden in the fine print, on the pages that nobody reads. But it’s an important driving force that leaves its emotional imprint everywhere. If you are thorough and you pay attention, you’ll find that you notice when fear is raising its ugly head. When you notice how fear is having an impact, you can face your fears and they will dissolve. Then it will be easier to be successful. Look for hidden fear everywhere, in every emotion or every resistance that you have.

A child is caught up in a day-dream.
Give yourself space to moon about and dream. There is a build-up of pressure at this New Moon and there is work to be done. But you won’t get there through logic alone. You can harness your intuition, your dreams, and your emotions for extra oomph. Feel into it. Feel into what you need to do and how you need to do it. Get yourself emotionally ready. Through this right-brained process, you’ll find that your work is more effective.
