New Moon Alignment

This new moon alignment is full of interesting relationships:


Part of a Larger Event

This new moon aligned with Pluto and the Winter Solstice is part of a large series of celestial events that include an alignment of the Winter Solstice, Sun, Galactic Center, and the completion of the current long-count cycle of the Mayan calendar. This alignment will happen on December 21, 2012.

Pluto will complete its exact alignment with the Winter Solstice point (0 degrees Capricorn) in 2009. Pluto's movement through this region of the sky, preceding so closely the alignment of the Winter Solstice Sun and Galactic Center, is highly fortuitous. Astrologically, this part of the sky is associated with the realization of destiny. Pluto passing through this region is a sign of new energy and regeneration for our collective potential.

Shamanically, this set of events points to the regeneration of cosmic communion, with profound implications for new strength and the rebirth of the sacred warrior energy. This set of celestial alignments is resonant with an infusion of divine energy into our collective awareness and the workings of our everyday experiences.

Pluto's alignment with the first degree of Capricorn will be accompanied by several alignments with the Sun and Moon. In particular, the Full Moon of June 18, 2008 which will happen while Pluto is at 29 degrees 52 minutes of Sagittarius (only 8 minutes from the location of the Winter Solstice). The solstice and equinox events during this period will be increasingly beneficial focal points allowing us to explore and connect with the related energy and potentials.

Blessings for the Solstice and your holidays.

More to come . . .
