New Moon conjucnt Mercury & Pluto in Sagittarius, Mars Square New Moon

The New Moon is on Wednesday, January 1st, New Year’s Day, at 16 deg. Sagittarius. This marks the beginning of the Hindu Lunar Month of Pushya, named for the nakshatra of the Full Moon, Pushyami. Pushyami’s image is the Udder of the Cow. Since the Cow gives of its milk Unselfishly, this is considered a good month for Generosity towards others. Pushyami is associated with the Hindu diety Brihuspati, the guru of the Gods. Therefore this month is good for Religious Initiations, Ceremonies, Higher Studies, etc.
This New Moon is closely conjunct Mercury & Pluto, and will carry the energy of that conjunction through the lunar month, which this year coincides with the calendar month of January. Pluto is considered to have an energy like Shiva: Destruction, but for the purpose of Rebirth. Pluto is thought to work on a societal /generational level. Mercury is the planet of Ideas and Communication. Thus: Transformational Ideas will be a feature of the next four weeks.
Mars will be exactly Squaring the New Moon from its position in Virgo. The planet of Action and Aggression will add in an extra dose of Conflict & Controversy, turning Discussion into Argument. (for more on the New Moon, watch this week's video blog at:, posted on December 29)
