The New Moon in Capricorn at 6º08″ Degrees will happen early this morning at 1:22 am, PST (4:22 pm, EST).

The Meaning of The New Moon: The New Moon is the beginning of the Waxing (growing) phase of the moon. This phase is best for starting projects, and attracting energy toward manifesting your desires for the next 14 days — that is, until the next Full Moon phase, which represents the next cycle of completion. (Learn more about the The Voxx Magickal Forum and check out the folder for New Moon Rituals.

The New Moon in Capricorn is one of the best for setting goals, initiating projects, and making a serious commitment toward manifesting your long-range plans.

Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, and both sign and planet are associated with the ideas of restriction, and discipline — both necessary in order to accomplish the greater things in life.

Adding additional force, the planet Mars also enters Capricorn today at 11:30 am PST (2:30 am EST), Mars lending a kick-ass energy which will enable us to actually fulfill our New Year’s resolutions! While Capricorn is the starting point for this new lunar phase, the energy will build, adding a positive sense of forward movement to all you attempt.

Procrastinate tomorrow! (lol) Right now, it’s time to get yourself in gear and start moving forward for once. Just because this energy is so powerful and positive, there’s a likelihood that you’ll expect results quickly — but, don’t get exasperated when this doesn’t happen. Just because you’re finally taking your life seriously doesn’t mean that everything can be magickally sorted out overnight. Have patience. That’s the ultimate Capricornian phrase. Chill out for heaven’s sake!

Planetary Aspects: Currently, there’s a powerful group of Planets in Capricorn — with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto ALL in this hard-working, focused sign.

Other Planetary Aspects: The Sun and Moon will conjunct Mars and Pluto in Capricorn at the time of the New Moon, which will pack a powerful punch to this new lunar phase. Along with challenging aspects to Venus and Neptune, we need to be aware that we may not be viewing reality clearly at the present time. Despite it all, this is a great time to to make serious plans for the future, as a quick reaping of rewards can start happening as soon as 4 weeks from now, at the time of the next Full Moon!

Global Effects of the New Moon in Capricorn: The Lunar/Saturn influence will no doubt be tough on weather patterns, and make us start paying attention to the damage we’re doing to the planet — not as punishment, but to guide us toward changing our patterns of planetary abuse.

Aleister Crowley’s Greater Feast

December 1st, 2008 by Voxx

s_univ.jpgToday is the 61st Anniversary of the death of the avatar of Western Magick, Edward Alexander Crowley (more famously known as Aleister Crowley). Thelemites (those who follow the magickal tenets of Crowley) refer to this special day as Crowley’s Greater Feast.

As a Thelemite, I always observe the Holy Days of Thelema, and earlier today remembered to meditate on the special energy of this day; however, at 11:34 pm (PST) the remembrance hit me full force. I felt his spirit must have left close to this time all those years ago.

Of course, today’s observance of the anniversary of Crowley’s death is extra special, as it’s also the day of a rare Jupiter/Venus Conjunction, an Astrological signifier of blissful union.

After looking over the Astrological Chart of Crowley’s death (December 1st, 1947), I saw that the Sun was at 9 Degrees in the sign of Sagittarius. I suddenly realized that this exactly conjoined one of my karmic planets at the exact degree. No wonder the path of Thelema called out to me so strongly in this incarnation!

In closing, I’d like to end this post with one of the more stirring passages from Crowley’s own Liber XV (The Gnostic Mass), wherein the Deacon of the Mass states:

“Unto them from whose eyes the veil of life hath fallen may there be granted the accomplishment of their true Wills; whether they will absorption in the Infinite, or to be united with their chosen and preferred, or to be in contemplation, or to be at peace, or to achieve the labour and heroism of incarnation on this planet or another, or in any Star, or aught else, unto them may there be granted the accomplishment of their wills; yea, the accomplishment of their wills. AUMGN. AUMGN. AUMGN.”

Wherever you are Frater Perdurabo, I hope you can see the beauty of the legacy that lives on in all of your magickal children.
