Global Hot Spot: The Capricorn New Moon on Thursday January 11, 2024

Dateline January 10, 2024: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here is the calendar entry for a very significant date Thursday January 11 and the day after Friday January 12. Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 42 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Capricorn New Moon can make an extraordinary impact in your personal life and for all of humanity. You can read more about this powerful solar-lunar conjunction in the cardinal-earth sign of the zodiac further below.

In addition, inside this feature see the World Map of solar, lunar and planetary rising/setting above/below lines for this Capricorn New Moon as well as the horoscope calculated for Washington, D.C. 

Important Note about “Dangerous Storms” in the Psychic Atmosphere of Humanity: At this Capricorn New Moon, the transiting fate-destiny strong Mean Nodes of the Moon at 20+ degrees of Aries and 20+ degrees of Libra are exactly uniting with Chiron in Aries opposite Juno in Libra in the USA birth chart from July 4, 1776. This polarity is one of the most precise in America’s horoscope. The transiting mean nodes only make this kind of union with the USA Chiron & Juno every 18+ years. Plus, for added emphasis, the Capricorn New Moon itself is square the transiting Mean Nodes of the Moon and squaring the USA Juno-Chiron polarity. Israel and Hamas are already at war, the Russia-Ukraine war is ongoing as are many other troubled hot-spots around the world. Therefore, if national and international events become even more dangerous, I will provide more information on our website. 

Asteroid Goddess Juno has many sterling and admirable qualities and archetypes, but when it manifests in a negative manner, then rage by the disempowered, terrorist acts as well as atmospheric storms can manifest. A Polar Express extremely cold weather pattern is developing through much of North America at this New Moon and over the weekend and Juno is in process of making its heavenly halt and going from direct to reverse on January 12 at 22 degrees of Virgo. This zodiac placement is within 1 degree of America’s natal Neptune and almost exactly square America’s natal Mars in Gemini. Keep track of the weather and news reports as this combination of stellar aspects has a volatile and unstable essence for the nation and our global geopolitical connections.

Uranus Transiting on the USA Vesta at 19+ degrees of Taurus: This is another gigantic challenge for our country as transiting Uranus has been and continues to be united with our national asteroid Vesta placement. This was already exact May 23 - 25, 2023, and December 17 - 18, 2023, and since Uranus is slowing down at this degree to make a station and go direct on January 26 - 27 coming up, the electric-surprise-erratic-eccentric-shock and lightning-like vibrations of Uranus are profoundly influencing our Vesta archetypes throughout January & February and exact for the third time between March 5 & March 8.. Expecting the unexpected, advanced technology (AI) and making breakthroughs in higher consciousness are also associated with Uranus, but so are Uranium, atomic fission, radioactivity and anxiety-nervous tensions on a global level. The Vesta themes include national safety-security matters, our homeland overall, embassies, the element of fire (the Eternal Flame), investment and insurance concerns, sisterhood bonds, fellowship ties, and various secret organizations and departments of government (CIA, FBI, KGB, etc). Russian leader Vladimir Putin has his Jupiter precisely on our Vesta and transiting Jupiter will reach this degree for the first time in 12 years April 9 - 13, 2024, just following the Total Solar Eclipse on April 8 at 19+ degrees of Aries in a precise conjunction with transiting Chiron. The last time Uranus was on our Vesta was June and November 1939 and March-April 1940 when World War II began.

Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Thursday January 11 and Friday January 12 (Times listed are in PST.)

Thursday January 11 Morning vibes are rather awesome even though the dark-of-the-moon phase is active until the New Moon arrives at 21 degrees of Capricorn (3:58am). Gung-ho and building forward momentum are a dynamic duo. The Moon in Capricorn trine to Uranus (1:27am) before the New Moon and Venus in Sagittarius harmoniously trine Chiron in Aries (6:37am) after the New Moon provide another dose of super-auspicious golden opportunities especially in the arts, healing realms and in sync with metaphysical studies. Be aware of a void Moon starting at the monthly Moon-Pluto conjunction (6:34pm). Just 28 minutes later at 7:02pm, the Moon rockets into the exalted atmosphere of the universal, fixed-air sign Aquarius for a two-day swing through the eleventh sign of the zodiac. Get ready for the peace-and-harmony asteroid Juno halting its direct motion tomorrow night at 22 degrees of Virgo to go into reverse for the next 3 months. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.] 

Friday January 12 Just because the Capricorn New Moon has occurred exactly on Thursday doesn’t mean its profound forward-moving vibes have disappeared. The solar-lunar cycle lasts 29.5 days and you are right at the beginning of this rapport between the two celestial lights. Looking for extra strength and problem-solving skill-sets across the board? Tune into the following amazing sky quartet of upbeat vibes. Mars in Capricorn forms a harmonious trine to Mount Olympus ruler Jupiter-Zeus in Taurus (2:43am), Pallas Athena in Scorpio makes a supportive, 60-degree sextile alliance with Juno in Virgo (5:13am), the Sun in Capricorn forms a harmonious trine with Juno (6:31am) while the Sun moves on to make a 60-degree sextile rapport with strategic-maestro Pallas Athena in Scorpio (7:12am). Your ability to nurture dear ones is greatly enhanced thanks to Ceres in Sagittarius harmoniously trine to the Mean North Node of the Moon in Aries (1:49pm). Group projects, team sports, community events and global causes close to your heart and philosophy of life are completely in sync with the Moon soaring in Aquarius. Plus, the Moon forms supportive, 60-degree sextile links to healing-generator Chiron in Aries (8:13pm) and romance-booster Venus in Sagittarius (11:33pm). From the asteroid realm, there is big news as Juno halts its direct motion at 22 degrees of Virgo to go retrograde. Focus attention on the following main Juno themes – empowerment or disempowerment in relationships, marriage and marriage-type bonds, elegance, beauty, style, fashion, fair treatment under the law, peace treaties and diplomacy regarding nations, atmospheric storms, and rage by the small and disenfranchised. (Juno remains in reverse until April 21 – the same day when Jupiter unites with Uranus in Taurus – when Juno will go direct at 7 degrees of Virgo.) [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
