We're headed into a brave new world at the January 4 New Moon solar eclipse. Liberation and commitment go hand-in-hand in 2011, as people break free of oppressive conditions, express themselves more authentically and build new structures to replace the old.
At this New Moon, four planets and the karmic North Node are clustered in dedicated Capricorn. And, the final Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, which began last May, happens the same day. What were you dreaming of in the spring? Now it's time to commit to realizing that goal.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You've been building toward a big career expansion for some time, Aries. Now four Capricorn planets are urging you up the mountain to pursue your calling in life. This may require asserting your independence and breaking ties with people, situations or an outdated self-image that have been holding you back. But do you really have a choice?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your higher self is trying mightily to relay a message to you at this eclipse, Taurus. This message may come from an article or a passage in a book, something you learn in a class or a revelation while on a trip. Either way, you're being told to have faith in your intuitive and creative ability, and embark on the path you know you must take.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Rarely have you felt the need for change as strongly as you do at this eclipse, Gemini. Old emotional patterns have been biting the dust, and you're growing stronger. Yet you cannot move forward without others. It's time to seek support, resources and group ties to help you achieve your goals. Deeper intimacy will then bless your life.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You're being jostled out of your comfort zone at this eclipse, Cancer. Yet you'll benefit from the push to honor your feelings at a deeper level. Major growth is happening in your partnership life -- you may be preparing to welcome a new mate, or setting better boundaries with an existing one. Brave steps will manifest the career results you want.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You're itching to move on to greener pastures at this eclipse, Leo. The Capricorn planets are calling you to be of service on a higher level than ever before. This may mean finding a new job or recommitting to a current one. Or, your creative leadership could be needed to serve a greater cause, perhaps by volunteering. Let your higher self guide you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Destiny calls you to unfurl your entrepreneurial spirit at this eclipse, Virgo. Even if you don't know how you'll pay for all the changes you need to make, trust that others will provide -- or show you how. The more imaginative, playful and courageous you are, the luckier you'll be. Romance and sexuality could heat up in a flash, as intimacy grows.
