With a focused mind and stable emotions, you can react quickly and decisively to changing conditions to find wealth, success and true love.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The January 24 new moon at 04°21′ Aquarius makes just one major aspect so it is fairly straight forward to decipher. A new moon square Uranus means change, uncertainty, and unpredictable behavior.

New moon January 2020 is also influenced by a fixed star that indicates crises, emotional problems, and mental instability. So the combination of a challenging Uranus aspect and a neurotic star is not a good omen for peace and harmony in the month ahead.

New Moon Problems

New Moon square Uranus brings uncertainty, anxiety and unexpected change. A buildup of nervous tension can result in unpredictable behavior, abruptness and sudden mood swings. A strong need to assert your independence can lead to impulsiveness, rebellion, arguements and tantrums.

The best way to handle this new moon is with open-mindedness and flexibility. Be proactive about positive change. Work out why you are feeling restless or what is causing the feeling of impending drama and chaos.

Changes in your personal appearance or attitude could lead to a brave new path that opens your life to many more possibilities and opportunities. This is also a good new moon to break bad habits or addictions. Doing so would satisfy your strong urge to break free of restriction and assert your independence.

Venus square Mars can cause relationship difficulties because of sexual or competitive tension. Anger, a lack of self-control and impulsiveness could easily exacerbate the unpredictable and shocking nature of Uranus. So if you are already an impatient or aggressive person, try not to lose your temper. If dating, take care not to lower your standards or put yourself at risk because of your impatient lust.

New Moon Solutions

Mercury sextile Mars gives the quick thinking and reflexes needed to react to unexpected change. It can make you driven to succeed at something with a strong sense of purpose and initiative. You can achieve a lot of work in a short amount of time, with the courage and fighting spirit to take on just about anything.

Venus sextile Jupiter brings lucky breaks and helps calm things down. Like Mercury sextile Mars, it also brings charisma and charm to relieve relationship tensions. Most of all, this harmonious aspect fosters warmth, love, and understanding. It brings the prospect of new love and partnerships that will be genuine and mutually beneficial.

New Moon Star

Looking down at a manmade horoscope, the January 24 new moon is in the Sign of Aquarius. But looking up at the natural sky, the new moon is in the Constellation of Capricornus. The Precession of the Equinoxes has moved the Sun Signs nearly a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named, over 2000 years ago.

Astrology was originally based on observing the effects of the planets related to the visible constellations. So it is Constellation Capricornus that has an influence on the new moon January 2020 astrology. In particular, a star in the left eye of the Sea-Goat named Dabih.

At 04 ♒ 19, fixed star Dabih is only 0°02′ from the January 24 new moon. Morse says Dabih indicates a crisis. And in harsh aspect like this new moon, “more crises than anyone would wish.” But it also gives patience, trust and faith, yet with a decisiveness to take the action needed and not fudge the issue. [1]

According to Robson, a new moon conjunct Dabih gives reserve, suspicion, mistrust, loss through friends, trouble through opposite sex, frustrated ambitions, and deserved criticism and censure. But also wealth, success in business, and a responsible public position of trust and authority. [2]

The following paragraph is channeled material about Moon conjunct Dabih within a 0°15′ orb:

This causes extreme emotional problems. These natives have an extreme emotional chemistry. When this position is poorly aspected by the transiting Sun, these persons will become unstable mentally for two or three days as the aspect becomes exact. It is very difficult to live with a person with this degree, as the mental problems become unbearable at times. There is a restricted energy affecting the balance of their emotional makeup and nervous system. They do become unbalanced and are literally insane for short periods of time. Often they remain secluded as they do not relate very well with the public. [3]
