The moon glides into the sign of Capricorn today, making it a reflective time to assess life and make decisions about the best way to move forward.
Uranus, retrograde in Taurus, and the healing centaur Chiron, retrograde in Aries, connect with the moon, which creates an intuitive perspective giving us the opportunity to implement growth and change in our lives.
In order to get started on your path, it’s important to take steps to heal from past trauma. The caveat is that this might be uncomfortable and awkward, especially given the Chiron retrograde is making a tense and fraught aspect with the Capricorn moon. Some emotions will be triggered from this lunar energy, making us want to run away and hide. Instead of ignoring or avoiding problems, it’s imperative that you deal with them head-on. Then you can take action to mend past emotional upsets, disappointments, and heartaches.
Uranus retrograde gives us a chance to take a different approach in such matters, which is very helpful and useful. Our old emotional reactions will no longer benefit or suit us, giving us the opportunity to find new emotional responses and understanding. Open your heart and mind to fresh and novel approaches to transcend to a higher vibration and way of thinking.
Our thoughts, beliefs, and opinions are beginning to evolve in clear and perceptible ways that are seen in today’s atmosphere. We can begin to see the inherent value in structure, guidelines — even restrictions. The restraint we may feel from the Moon’s transit through Capricorn is actually providing us with a great deal of stability. Innovation and insight is tempered with humility, allowing us to quietly make remarkable progress. This is a powerful awareness that keeps us from pushing any harder than necessary but with determined effort and confidence. We have increased capacity to describe and explain innovative ideas in ways that allow for broader understanding and acceptance.

Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
JAN 2: NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: You might have a strong need for being useful to the society and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you.

JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible.

Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
When Badger Spirit comes to protect you, he reminds you that anger or aggression, argumentative behavior, and being pushy or manipulative will not result in a positive outcome. Perhaps someone close to you has excess Badger energy, or perhaps that energy is pent-up in you. Either way, now is the time to calm down and allow the energy to pass through you. Go for a hike or brisk walk, shake it off, or dance it out so you can return to the situation determined and committed, but not so intense that you overwhelm others and yourself.
The appearance of Badger Spirit also serves as a reminder if you have been relentlessly pursuing something that keeps eluding you. The message is that it’s time to surrender it up to your Higher Power and focus on something else. Badger Spirit wants to protect you from self-will run rampant—from being obsessed with getting what you want in the form you prefer, in timing that fits perfectly with your notions of what has to be.
Remember, the world doesn’t revolve around your wants. Better, more beautiful opportunities will be the result when you release some of that Badger Spirit intensity along with your need to have it your way one hundred percent.
