If you haven’t been feeling filled with vim, vigour  and enthusiam for the  New Year, you”re not alone!

It certainly hasn’t been the breeziest start to the year astrologically, with a whole batch of planets in stern , pragmatic Capricorn AND a waning moon, which doesn’t align too well with new beginnings!

The good news is that things should lighten up and start moving forward a bit  more after the first new moon of the year on 17th  January,

This new moon is more important and more potent that most, due to this  very focussed earth energy and also to Saturn having recently moved into Capricorn, the sign of the mountain goat for the first time since 1990!. He will stay there until the end of 2020, so the seeds you plant at this New Moon, will lay the groundwork for the next 3 years.

Capricorn is all about commitment, maturity, response-ability, boundaries, security, standing authentically in your power as an adult, the fears and blocks that hold you back from living your potential – so there are some big themes at play here.

In my latest video (above), I explore not only the new moon, but also how to work with the energies of Saturn over the next few years!

Some questions to ponder:

  • What are your heart’s intentions/  priorities this year?
  • What would you really like to commit to?
  • What small steps can you take to move you in the right direction?
  • How are you with boundaries?
  • How do your fears stop you from moving forward in your life?
  • Are you standing in your power, taking full responsibility for your life?

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way”. Goethe


Its a good idea to see how and where Saturn in Capricorn will be playing out in your chart over the next 3 years and how you can work with him. Let me know if you’d like a sesson  to investigate this OR to book a first time reading. .


I really encourage you to work with this energy and to do a Vision Board for the Year. I don’t have any space left on my last Saturday workshop, but I do have space on the remaining  Wednesay mornings in January.

If you aren’t able to attend, but would like to do a Vision Board and are able to gather a group of 5 or more people, I will consider running one for you. The Vision Board workshops I run are very different to the norm. They are based on aligning with your heart’s intentions, rather than being only externally focussed.


On Saturday 17th February, and over the four Wednesday mornings in Feb, I will be running a workshop called the The Spiral of Life. With the Sun’s passage through Aquarius, we will explore ways in which  we can connect to and strengthen our connection to Source/ the Divine by working with the symbol of the SPIRAL.  Email me for details
