2022-06-29  Capricorn New Moon – Southern Hemisphere

Editor: Robin Armstrong


Sagittarius New Moon

Southern Hemisphere

The New Moon

When your feelings about the past, memories, and your sense of security

conjunct or meet up with

Your confidence,  purposefulness, and your hopes for the future

A profound impression is made.

A note on the harp of the soul.

A seed moment in celestial manifestation.

The Horoscope for the New Moon is for the exact moment of the New Moon.

There are no houses in this chart because the Moon is in all 12 houses at the same time when viewed globally. So this is the true New Moon chart for anywhere on earth. You can add the houses to it according to where you live.

Most computer printouts will draw the horoscope with the houses as appropriate for where you are on the planet. This was not done here in order to focus on things valid for everyone on the planet.

New Moons are the peak  points of subjective impressionability in the month.

Receptivity to core insights and to God, are accentuated.

Chanting (or even drumming) on a New Moon will give an extra vitality to your efforts over the following month,

until the next New Moon.

A holy  environment and spiritual companions are a great blessing.

The New Moon accumulates and reflects on all of the experiences of the past month. On the New Moon the conglomerate of experiences past, creates a high tide of intuitive impressions. At the moment the Moon meets the Sun, light is  shone on these impressions creating a new sense of purpose. It is the Sun than effects the Moon.

From our worldly consciousness we cannot see the combination or aggregate of memories, but we can certainly feel it.

Unfortunately our habit patterns are too gross or physical to allow us to attune to this phenomenon consciously, but we certainly can feel it.

Only the initiate or one established in spiritual disciplines can clearly witness the New Moon within.

Zodiac Pattern Types


All the planets on one side of a chart, within an opposition. One half to almost two thirds of the chart is empty.

The Bowl Type has a deep sense of being separated from one half of existence. Half seems to be with you and the other half not. Because this pattern is based on the op­position there is an inherent awareness of duality. You will embrace your concerns strongly. You will also be powerfully aware of what does not concern you. You clearly see who you are, and who you are not! You tend to champion causes and will usually go out of your way to give to others on one level or another. Your sensitivity to duality will find you questioning the purpose of existence.



45° – 0°, 3 1/2 to 0 days before the New Moon.

            This is the last phase of the lunar cycle before the new moon. It is often called the balsamic moon phase and it lasts for three and one half days from the crescent to the new moon. The light finally disappears into the mystery of silence and darkness. Completion becomes important. Your own projections seem to disappear in the vastness of all that is happening around you.

            You are searching for something new but are unsure of how to end the old attachments. Your awareness of others begins to lose relevance as you approach renewal. Try to understand what needs to be left behind. This should be a daily meditation. You have the uncanny ability to know when anything is ending or about to fall apart. Unfortunately it is not usually wise to tell others about it. They would probably consider you to be too negative. You need to learn why things come to an end. It is important for you to mind your own business or you will keep seeing everything that is going to collapse on everyone. Learn to look within for the new vision. Trust silence. Take steps to move towards your vision. Be very selective. Listen and wait.

            Often people will not appreciate you until you have gone. Try to insure that your influence is a positive one. Watch what you say. Often you will seem overwhelmed by useless or futile commitments. Do not try to save face. Be honest and let go.

            The quality of ending will directly effect the nature of the new beginning just about to come. So be wise. No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. It may not make sense to others but if you trust your conscience, you will see the way. Hold on to your principles. Do not make promises that you cannot keep, especially long term promises.

            You have the tendency to lose yourself in others only to be left very insecure when they do not have the answers. You want to become completely involved with someone. You will constantly search for or wonder about the ultimate love of your life. Often you will feel that what you have is not enough, and then you will wonder why you bother to stay within it.

            You are looking for completion and fulfillment and are not likely to embrace freedom comfortably. You want to burn your past for future goals. It is amazing though how long you can procrastinate and wait. You want to help but often do not know what to do. You will probably not bother until somebody else cares.

            A little encouragement can have profound effects. To attract positive feedback you must be positive towards others. If you must end a situation, it is important for the reason to be correct, otherwise your problems will reoccur in the new arena.


O°- 45°, 0 to 3 1/2 days after the New Moon.

This is the beginning of the lunar cycle and lasts for three and one half days. The light is emerging gently. From the depths of the darkest moment up to the first slim crescent of light, and a little farther until the crescent is smiling brightly.

            This is a highly intuitive time filled with deep impressions and new beginnings. This is a time of seed moments and powerful insights. There is a predominant undercurrent of anxious anticipation. A new moon cycle is born.

            Born under this phase you need to feel that your life is just beginning to open up. The challenge is subjective: are you prepared to advance your own cause? You should readily adjust your lifestyle to support any new sense of direction that you feel is emerging within you. You will be constantly having to make new starts in life. You will be sensitive to new beginnings and uncertain about your present surroundings. You are inclined to leave old attachments and memories behind. You want to move forward towards your goals and will be frustrated by any setbacks.

            When you begin a project it is important to advance with care and gentleness. Make sure that you nurture and protect the germinating seed; ie. the new you. It is usually easier for you to do things than to talk about them. Remember that you do not have to achieve everything right away, but it is important for you to feel that you are advancing toward your goals.

            You are the kind of person who plants ideas in the minds of others. You will reach out and impress others subtly. You will always be able to sense the new path that should be taken. As long as you are moving along this path you will feel relatively secure. Worries and problems will surface when you crystallize or stop growing. Do not look back or hold on to the past. Nurture the light within. Protect your own development and do not throw your good ideas out to fools who will not appreciate them. Neither should you follow the dreams of others. Trust your own inner sense of direction. Whenever you can make the effort to be creative, you should. Do not try to explain the process, just do it! Consistent effort will accumulate. Reach out. Rely on your instincts. Grow. Break out of old patterns. Move on. Move on. New beginnings always seem small against the vastness of life around you, none-the-less every journey starts with one small step. Try to find friends who will support and acknowledge your efforts. Always be cautious about what you say. Words can come back to haunt you.

            You will always be trying to start something. Make certain that you take time to water the flowers and plants in your garden of hopes and dreams. The end does not always justify the means so make your daily life creative. Take time to smell the flowers along your path. You will be able to draw encouragement and inspiration by listening to birds singing.

Some Capricorn Considerations:

Capricorn is a Cardinal sign. They will work hard to accomplish something. It is the beginning of the year. Great effort and caution are needed most at the beginning of things. This is a serious sign that will aspire to put their plans in motion. They will have a strong sense of the obstacles before them. They will exercise caution and restraint in their actions. They are both assertive and defensive. They should not be underestimated. They command respect. 

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn.

The planet of self-discipline and responsibility.

This is the beginning of winter.

Life is dark and cold. It is a difficult time.

Nothing comes easily.

Hard work and disciplined effort are needed.

One must protect what one has and be patient about what one wants.

There will be times when one must do without!

Working hard and keeping complaints to oneself will win respect.

Personal restraint is required.

This is the trigram of the Arousing Force.

Out of darkness, light returns.

Out of great stillness, movement begins.

Out of great silence, a sound is heard.

Out of deep meditation, a thought arises.

Light, movement, sound and shock!

All are sources of stimulation and shock.

On the Eightfold Path this is the challenge of Right Speech.

For Right Speech one must abstain from telling lies.

One must also abstain from back-biting, slander

And talk that might bring about hatred, enmity

Or disunity among individuals or groups of people.

One must avoid language that is harsh, rude, malicious or abusive.

One must not indulge in idle, useless, foolish babble and gossip.


Pentans are five degree divisions of the Zodiac in which the zodiac repeats itself creating a sub-level  of meaning. Sub-pentans divide each 10 degrees of the zodiac into 12 sub-sub-signs adding a third level of meaning. The Zodiac sign is the Main Theme, The Pentan is the Special Focus and the Sub-Pentan is the Intimate Detail.

Zodiac Faces

Today we see

the Face of Ambition

Aries: The end will not justify the means. It is important for you to smell the flowers along the way. Ambition on its own will only serve to isolate you. Enjoy yourself when you can.

Taurus: You will run into overly ambitious people today. You will not win anything by trying to compete. If you can keep restrained and maintain a personal sense of discipline, the obstacles will fall away. Aggressive people will trip on their own shoestrings.

Gemini: If you verbalize your ambitions you will increase the amount of resistance you will have to deal with. Timing will be important today. Stay silent and be on time!

Cancer: You will not gain much respect today. If you can demonstrate a capacity for sincerity and consistent effort you will improve your status in the eyes of authority.

Leo: Your ambition will clash with that of another. If you parade yourself and try to lead you will make a better target. Let your opponents underestimate you today.

Virgo: Do not try to improve on the efforts of others. Let sleeping dogs lie. If you question the methodology of those in authority you will undermine your own ambitions.

Libra: Time is money. You will need to measure out your activities today. Goofing off will only increase your hassles. Meet your commitments. Work hard and don’t be late.

Scorpio: For ambition to progress you will have to take on extra responsibilities. Without increasing commitments you will miss the mark. Work hard. Be formal and respect the efforts of others.

Sagittarius: Trust your instincts today. Timing will be essential. Stop, wait and listen before you make a move. If someone asks for your help do not procrastinate or it will held against you.

Capricorn: Ambition without action will lead to inertia and frustration. You will need to back up your goals with decisive initiative. You must meet commitments eye to eye. Doorways will open for you as you take on responsibilities.

Aquarius: Expect challenges to your authority. Discretion is the better part of valour. Good timing will know when to hold back and play yourself down. Forward moves should be put on hold for another day. Be patient and silent!

Pisces: Nothing substantial will happen in an easy or lucky way. You will have to work for whatever rewards you want to get. Progress will happen through making a consistent effort.

Without contending, it becomes possible to comprehend the virtue of emptiness.

Without knowing, one understands.

Virtue is not won or lost by others.

Many vulnerabilities. Many responsibilities.

Uranus Conjunct Sun in Taurus – A Canadian Zodiac Coin

By Robin Armstrong

Zodiac Coin Canadian

In 2021 I was an adviser to the Royal Canadian Mint for the production of a Canadian Zodiac coin.

They had their own artists and production manager. My work was to make sure that the information presented was correct and inclusive of both astronomical and astrological perspectives in a lucid and informed manner. The artist for the Zodiac side of the coin was Jori van der Linde.  She created the Zodiac design. She used her own creative license to present the Zodiac images and the constellations.The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the front of the coin was done by Susanna Blunt.

The Zodiac coin was minted and made available in May 2022 just as the Sun and Uranus were in Taurus. Innovative astrological money!  How appropriate! To add to the Uranus factor, the Zodiac side of the coin lights up under a black light and reveals the constellations. Without the black light the symbols of the Zodiac signs are seen.

The once  in 165 years Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, which is also happening this May 2022, enhances the acceptance and approval of astrology in Canada. It ushers in an era of renewed mysticism and understanding for the 21st century.
