January, named after the Roman God Janus, the God of gates, doors, entrances, exits, beginnings and endings. He is depicted as two headed to symbolise being at the threshhold, facing the past and future. To me, he represents the zero point where all is poised, all is potential. Every moment is a zero point really because we we are constantly making choices and creating our future. An act, a word, a glance, smile, frown, nod, step forward, halt, hesitancy all have an effect.
The transition from past to future is all hyped up and magnified tonight because everyone is on the same transition point both mentally and emotional as part of consensus reality.
The best thing that you can do is to programme yourself to be more aware of the now and the immnse power that you hold over your life for each minute. Every moment and day is important.
January 1st enters with a New Moon in Capricorn depicted by a mountain goat. It is also a Perigee or Supermoon because it will come close to Earth so its attraction and pulling power is magnified. It is not only a Full Moon that can be a Supermoon. The Moon links to feelings which can rise and fall and be overwhelming like the tides but it is in the sphere of earthy Capricorn and the mountain goat manages to find its way through the toughest and most challenging of paths by keeping its gaze firmly on its high goals and its feet in contact with the ground. The Moon is accompanied at this juncture by Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn so it will herald an intense time of soul searching and soul purging to pave the way to creating a space in your mind and on the physical to communicate and manifest your inner callings on firm foundations. These things will not manifest suddenly as they will require hard work and complete focus. Keep your intent and ideal in a safety deposit box in your mind and know that you and you alone Know the combination to activate it. The rough terrain that you successfully negotiate will mean that your intent will be fully formed and durable. You will see signs of its seed manifesting by the end of the month when the second Janus New Moon is born.
Wishing you all a creatively positive 2014.
