While the date of this new moon may have passed just slightly, the energies this celestial event holds have not yet left our sides. When we experience something like this, the energies before us stick around for several weeks.

New moons and things like that do not just disperse energetically as soon as the clock strikes midnight. The energies this kind of thing brings forth stick around until the next major phase, for instance in this case until the next full moon. This means that while we might not realize it as the days continue these energies are still working their magic in our lives. Some may be more present than others but overall, we’re all getting something out of this new moon whether we like it or not. 

This new moon has taken place in the sign Capricorn and with that, it was also conjunct Pluto. Because of these things we should be expecting some chaotic energies, to say the least. This moon will be one that brings our more nervous and tense sides out to play but also helps us see the good in transformation as a whole.

This moon is nothing to be afraid of and these energies are before you for a reason. Do not be too overwhelmed and remember that sometimes we all have to take a step back and breathe, ground ourselves out properly and see where these energies take us. Yes, there will be some problems coming back up that we might not want to deal with but getting those things out of the way will pave the path for us to really grow as time passes. 

Astrology King wrote as follows breaking down some of the aspects of this new moon:

Mars square Saturn (0°05′) brings frustration and inhibition. Your desires may grow stronger but you may find it harder to express your passions and succeed. The harder you pursue your goals, the more resistance you are likely to face.

The best approach now is a defensive one. Instead of starting new projects or hunting down your desires, it is better to concentrate on holding onto what you already have.

Jupiter square Uranus (1°06′) indicates great inner tension caused by a sudden change in fortunes or in the direction of your life. Big opportunities could be close at hand. However, impatience and a strong urge to break free of restrictions could lead to unwanted disruption and unexpected events.

Extravagance and erratic behavior could lead to losses, so do not seek change just for the sake of change. Choose carefully which opportunities to follow and moderate risk-taking with discretion.

Mercury square Uranus (0°56′) brings excitement and change which can cause upsets and nervous tension. Unexpected news may force you to change plans.

The normal tempo of life increases and you may have an unsettling feeling of always having to catch up. However, an increased ability to view things from a different perspective can lead to original ideas and creative breakthroughs.

Don’t be too afraid as noted above these energies might feel like a lot, but you can get through them. Things are not always as hectic as they seem. Take things one day at a time.
