New Moon in Capricorn

The first New Moon of 2021 falls in the sign of Capricorn on 13 January here in Adelaide, and 23 degrees of Capricorn. It was at this very degree in January last year, that Saturn and Pluto aligned, and the stirrings of what was to come kicked into gear.

Kali, the Hindu Dark Mother, is the fierce face of the divine feminine. Her unbound wildness taunts us, filling us with wonder as well as with dread.
