Moon Musings: How the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (January 5, 2019) Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

Moon Musings: How the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (January 5, 2019) Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

Posted by Kyle Thomas on



A Solar Eclipse in the sign of Capricorn will take place on January 5th, 2019. Solar Eclipses are a massive door opening from the Universe. YOU must lay seeds in this area of life AFTER it appears, depending on your sign (and rising sign) to receive the greatest change. The power of this Solar Eclipse lasts for six months to a year. The actions you take from January 5th – January 17th will likely come to fruition in very big ways by July 16th, 2019 (plus or minus four days) depending on the success of your initial plans. 



Great destined events are going to come about due to the power of this Solar Eclipse. Solar Eclipses are often “friendly,” and bring about new blessings and new beginnings that change our lives for many years. These fated events will transform your life depending on where they fall in your horoscope. Eclipses are also known to act as a “cosmic reboot,” where our current path is disrupted and then our directions shift or are pushed rapidly forward. There often is an awakening or shocking revelation that helps us evolve on our life’s journey. In the weeks between eclipses, we also notice a stillness – as if we are in the eye of a storm.



There are two types of eclipses – Solar Eclipses, that take place on a New Moon – as well as Lunar Eclipses, which take place on a Full Moon. Solar Eclipses are when the moon moves and masks the Sun, while Lunar Eclipses are when the Earth’s shadow is cast upon the moon. Eclipses come in a pair of signs six months apart usually twice a year. Solar Eclipses bring massive new beginnings, while Lunar Eclipses bring huge culminations and conclusions. Solar Eclipses are highly energized while Lunar Eclipses are always very emotional. Whenever eclipses take place, it is best to keep your eyes and ears searching for what the Universe is about to bless you with – suddenly, change is here and we must accept it and be ready to take it. Solar Eclipses are three times as powerful as a normal New Moon, while Lunar Eclipses are three times more powerful than a Full Moon. 



Capricorn energy is cold, calculating, grounded, and strategic. Capricorn energy often rejects emotions in order to favor a practical, clear-headed approach, rather than diving fully into things with passion or abandon. Capricorn energy is always focused on longevity and control, and how to get from the bottom of the mountain to the very top – at the expense of sweetness, softness, or warmth. While these may come across as typically “darker” attributes, they are not actually so unless the Capricorn energy is immature or afflicted. Capricorn energy is about building slowly in order to ultimately get the achievement of the goal. While other signs may be blessed with luck or raw talent, Capricorn energy is all about putting in the work and making moves strategically to get where they want to be. Capricorn energy is also inherently competitive and does not look at others as equals – they always want to have one tool in their back pocket that’ll lift them to superiority. While this may be selfish, Capricorn energy does not care – they would rather be collected and icy to always appear calm and in charge of themselves and the world around them. Without this kind of strategy in our world, we wouldn’t be so focused on how to rise and to win, even if that means leaving some people or things behind.



This Solar Eclipse comes with two major planetary influences. Saturn (the planet of longevity, maturity, but also hardship and restriction) spreads its power over this time as it falls very close to it in the sky. While this can at times bring forth a very cold and ominous energy, it can also make us realize that we need to build structures and relationships in our lives that can stand the test of time. Because of this, you may notice that you have to start off 2019 by taking on more responsibility and being more disciplined to achieve the things that you want. Focusing on your routines and patterns will be important now. Yet, despite this more serious overtone, Neptune (the planet of imagination, divine love, and faith) will reach out across the sky to kiss the Solar Eclipse and Saturn, promising us that all of our dreams can come true if we lay down a steady foundation. Relationships and commitments that take place now are likely to bring achievement, success, and be equally inspiring and romantic, but also hold a realistic stability. Jobs, negotiations, and career opportunities – particularly in the arts or in service to others – will be divinely blessed. Take this time to grow closer to someone of importance or embark on a risk that you want some extra strength for. Write down a list of goals you aspire for in 2019: in work, relationships, health, money, and growth. Make plans that might seem hard to attain but excite you. Then consider how you can bring them into reality through continuous effort. When we turn and look back a year from now, watch as many have actually come to life.


Find out where your life will be directly affected by reading your Sun Sign and Rising Sign (if you know it).


This New Moon will help lay a pattern of success in your career for you that will last six months to a year. The seeds you lay around this time will crown you in success, glory, or public recognition. Send resumes. No updated resume yet? Do it now. And make sure you make a list of some top candidates you want to apply to. Search out anyone and anything that can improve your power, “fame,” and status in your life. Sometimes, this even means aligning yourself with people or partners in order to create united power. If you want a public marriage, relationship, or business engagement, this would be the time to lay that forward too. Pay attention to offers that come by, new projects that are gaining momentum, or any lover/partner that may able to lift you to the stars.



Grow your mind, expand your horizons, and travel are open roads to you now. Academics, spirituality, and media (public relations, publication, television, writing of all sorts but on a very large scale) can be blessings to you. Find ways to better yourself by looking at how you are connected to the greater world. Join groups. Fine-tune skills. Find mentors. Ask for help. This is a pivotal moment to get your life together before you are about to ramp up to career momentum at the next New Moon. New experiences are awaiting you, so buckle up and get ready for the ride. You’re going to flourish.



Anything to do with deep and long-term union is in focus. Loans, debts, joint bank accounts and businesses. Combined projects and ownership. Sexuality will be of increased interest at this time. Any hidden, deep sexual fantasies will be explored. Secrets and things that are not equal. This will be a time where you can forge stronger unions and start new ones. Money is likely to be in focus for many of you. The biggest thing you'll be thinking about is: what do you owe me? What do I owe you? Make sure that you open yourself to deeper connections and to giving and receiving in more fulfilling ways. However, do not take on more “debt” than you can give back – remember, balance in partnerships, however you establish them, is key. You may also release anything that is holding you back, particularly baggage or things that are keeping you from rising higher in life.



Partnerships. Business. Marriage. "Becoming official." Long-term friendships. Unions. You can be blessed with all. This is a good time to assess what you want in a serious partner and what you do not. Make a list. If you have a partner (in business or love), use this time to talk about taking your union to the next level and how you can compromise and work better together. If it’s not going to work, it may be time to let that relationship go. For those looking for key partnerships, it may be a time where you meet a destined one or someone finally steps up in the ways you’ve been hoping for. This may also be a fortunate time in connection with the public.



Work, work, work, work. It’s time to buckle down and get everything moving in motion. Use this time to amplify your work life. Ask for more projects from employers. If you're self-employed, advertise and get your name out there. Ask for referrals. If you work for a business, make sure you're being seen by your superiors. You'll also be focusing on your fitness and daily rhythm. How do you balance your work-life? Anything to do with fitness/health is also in focus: want to lose weight? Kick that bad habit? Quit smoking? Get on a plan. Meet a doctor. Stop waiting. Do it now. If you want to get a new job, this would be a time to be rocking out those resumes. Use this time well. Grind. It’ll pay off.



Love, romance, fun, adventure, and creativity shine for you now. You'll be more attractive, so if you're single, get your face out there! Meet people. It's better to meet people through friends or socially rather than apps. Plan some events. Some of you may be moving and changing up your lifestyle. Embrace every ounce of change that is coming. You're worth it. Also, there may be a focus on art projects and you may feel more inspired than any recent times. Embrace that muse. It was meant for you. If you have children, they may be taking focus for you. Allow a lyrical, romantic, and beautiful spotlight to hit your life and inspire your heart for the entire year to come. Your heart will be lit on fire.



The foundation of your life can change. The way you love yourself, self-love, as well as everything to do with family, home, your "chosen home/family," Mother/Father relationships, and anything to do with domestic matters will be apparent now. Jump on real estate if you can. Update your living space. Buy some new furniture, give a wall a fresh coat of paint, look for that perfect cooking set for you to entertain with. Being domestic is going to go well for you, now, so invite friends over or use this time to enjoy your home. Also, you’re going to be considering what truly makes you happy and if you have the things in your life you need, particularly self-respect and self-love. Look in the mirror and ask yourself: "Do I like myself? What do I truly need? What makes me happy? Am I on a path that is fulfilling emotionally?” Answer these questions truthfully.



Get ready to expand all areas of communication. Focus on advertising, social media, grow your presence online or with people, and anything ruled by communication will flourish. Meet new people. Reach out to new contacts. Ask others for new contacts. Submit a resume. If you want a job in any of these areas listed, get it, because you can. Writing. Agencies. Contracts. It's all lighting up. If you are launching a campaign in any of these areas, it will be divinely blessed by the cosmos. The time is now. Lay the seeds.



Money seems to be about to come in – or ways to generate more of it. Increase your income by looking for better jobs or by asking for a raise. Show you're qualified. Update that resume. Also focus on the things you "own," especially your possessions. People are not possessions, but if you look at people in that way, make sure they're yours, dependent on you, and you will lock that down. What do you own? Make sure it's yours to stay – because it can be. If you're looking to buy things, you're likely to have luck.



This New Moon is ALL ABOUT YOU, and that means you are in the spotlight. Use this time to evaluate who you are, what you want, and where you are going. You can utilize the power of this Solar Eclipse in any way you’d like. Use this time to analyze how you want to shine – and then go for it! Put yourself out there. Get a fresh new haircut, wardrobe, or style. Start that project that’s been on the backburner that you’ve always wanted to pursue. Become the person you were meant to be. If your birthday falls three days before or after January 5th, this will be a BIG year for you. It will be one with lots of new beginnings, new relationships, and you will see how this year marks a major change for your life. You may move to a new home or city or see a huge shift in your lifestyle and view of the world. This will also occur if you have 15 degrees Capricorn as an Ascendant/Rising Sign (+/- 4 degrees). Be ready! Here it comes.



All things that are hidden and growing will soon come to light for you. Your time is coming. Every dream, fire, desire, and focus is in your scope now. Things may come out that you've long hidden or things that have been hidden by other people, so be aware. This Solar Eclipse will "clear out" the past year, and get you ready to finally shine. Lay any seed you want to germinate slowly. It will need more time than most. Lay your biggest endeavors at the next New Moon because it’ll be in your sign. Use this time now to release the past and let go of pain and enemies.



Your dreams and aspirations, as well as friends, are heating up. What do you want long-term and how do you get it? Think about that vision you've always wanted. Make a plan. You're good at that. Create the steps. Make it possible. This can cover any area of life. However, you're about to heat up a lot of social fun, and you're likely to find these dreams align with new people you meet, so say YES to your social engagements and watch your coming year light up with stronger friendships and ferocity.
