the movie American Hustle which told about a real life sting operation known as ABSCAM. I say this because that tight grouping in the signs of climbing mountain goat and the sea goat. Per Manilius in reference to this sea-goat tail part of the figure says: "The last part of Capricorn, which consists of the sting at the end of its tail, prescribes for its children service upon the seas and the handling of ships, a hardy calling and one which is ever close to death."
Booms and Quakes to Start 2014 Even though on a personal level ushering in this New Years/New Moon might be a times subdued, don't expect it to be quiet on a collective and earthy level. In fact leading up to this incredible New Moon there have been Loud Booms heard from Corpus Christi, Texas to Strange Booms in Northern Ilinois to Booms that Shook Houses in Cranston, Rhode Island. or more mysterious booms in Toronto and so far no explanation. Most of these incidents have taken place in Eastern half of the United State, primarily from Texas, Oklahoma on through the New Madrid to areas near the St. Lawrence Seaway. Since the Sun entered Capricorn there have been numerous accounts of quakes near the NMZ especially in Oklahoma where quakes have been continuous. Lots of evidence from the last two years shows that pressure building from New Madrid trying to move or have a major adjustment in the diagonal fashion causing booms throughout the East half of the states."
This lunation is known a Super Moon, when the moon is at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. A time when tides and seismic shifts are the most predisposed. The year 2014, which begins at the end of the Chinese Cycle of the Black Water Snake and has a total of five supermoons. They are the two new moons of January, and the full moons of July, August and September. January 1, 2014 is the first supermoon of the year, and January 30 is the second. Expect large tides around both dates. We won’t have a single calendar month with two supermoons again until January 2018.
The New Moon is exact @ 10 degrees 57 minutes Capricorn and this degree translates to 11 degrees of the Seagoat with a mystical Sabian Symbol: Pheasants display their brilliant colors on a private estate. This image speaks directly of a display of wealth, beauty, game birds on large estates or parks. This symbolic image synchronous with an incredible New Moon offers us a time when we all can enjoy whatever riches(spiritual to material) that our environment offers us. Looking at the chart set for the UK we see that the Sun-Moon-Pluto-Mercury are in a tight conjunction at the top of the chart the Mid-Heaven.
Mercury is also square Mars (exact Dec. 31st @ 6:59 AM PST) which can add some tension,along with possible quarrels, and accidents, while stimulating decisions which are too impulsive or reactive. Impulse control and restraint should be practiced before you leap into the burning melee. We are fast approaching the year 2014, when life changes in many remarkable ways.
Below we see a chart set for the Capricorn Super Moon @ 3:14 AM in San Francisco, CA.
Saturn is rising with Scorpio in a trine to Jupiter in Cancer in the 8th house putting a huge focus on $$ coming in to the Bay Area for more building, housing efforts and of course transforming technology.
Since all those planets are in the 2nd house of values, money, stocks, investments and will oppose Jupiter expect more emphasis on excess and greed.
Since New Moon @ 11 degrees Capricorn (Sabian Symbol: "Pheasants display their brillant colors on a private estate.")
Sun/Moon are conjunct Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn so uncompromising and obsessive thinking will continue to manipulate and persuade folks into believing certain ways.
From the shadows more information about spying and surveillance will continue to be revealed
Of course with Saturn now in secretive Scorpio and in mutual reception to Pluto-Mercury there is an aura of mystery about this coming month.
Consider that Mars is the ancient ruler of Scorpio and is transiting in justice oriented Libra near Vesta and Ceres square Pluto
this will be triggering more protests, lawsuits, efforts at righting wrongs.
Mars is posited in the 11th house of groups and associations thus their will be strong advocates to bring about a balance to oligarchical takeovers by the billionaires. Actually that take over reflecting the sudden energies of the Uranus-Pluto squares when we add in Mars now in the sign of planning and negotiations.
With this New Moon, we have a choice in 2014, whether to fly upwards, building a more spiritual world or stay mired in debris of our subconcsious.
