New Moon in Capricorn – January 2013
The new moon in capricorn is the first new moon the year. Capricorn is the feminine earth sign that focuses us on ‘practical matters’ and using our intuition to guide us on the right path. According to Mayan prophecy we are now in the 13th Baktun and a new cycle. The moon cycles will now have an even greater influence in our lives as we begin to realise our symbiotic relationship with the natural world and how it directly affects us.
This is a good moon for setting out your goals and priorities for the year and getting a clear idea of your destination. The key is not to get too caught up in the details. Instead, set your intention to where you want to end up and then let the universe create it for you. It means letting go of trying to work out rationally how it’s all going to happen and getting out of your own way.
The clearer we become about who we are and what we want to do in the world the easier it becomes to co-create the life we most desire. Life is only a reflection of our own inner world. In order to change our lives, we must work from the inside out rather than from the outside in. This also empowers us to take personal responsibility for our actions so we get out of the blame game and into a more proactive and motivated energy.
We are so limited by our three dimensional perspective that we have forgotten that life is full of limitless possibilities and directions. When we surrender to the natural flow of life we see that everything we need is manifested effortlessly. Fortunately, the Capricorn moon also helps us to be more patient and tenacious if things are not going exactly as we expected and trust that everything is happening perfectly.
We feel more motivated under a Capricorn moon, as it gets us disciplined and organised. We can get a clearer idea of our priorities and feel more ambitious and inspired to get on with our projects and creative endeavours. This is a great time to do mundane tasks such as, tax returns, filing, paying any outstanding bills, balancing the books, buying/selling shares and stocks.
Allow the energy of this moon to push you out of any sluggishness or despondency you may be feeling. If you are unsure of what you want to create, what you need to do, what’s the best direction to go in, or how to change your life; go and do something practical about it. This is a good time to get proactive. There are many techniques that can help you push through the blockages and get you clear on where you want to go. Set the intention that you need help and the right person/healer/therapist will come to you.
Be careful not to bury your emotions and pretend everything is ok. Sometimes under a Capricorn moon we can hide how we are truly feeling, which just generates more of the same emotions that are dragging us down. Instead, use the feminine energy to allow yourself to be vulnerable and ask for help if you need it. The more open we can be with how we are truly feeling the more support and love we realise we have around us.
We are also more intuitive with this moon so trust your feelings and intuitions, and act on them in the moment, especially if you are being asked to step out of your comfort zone and do things differently. When we allow ourselves to fully follow our inner knowing we find life becomes more magical and exciting. Enjoy the challenges and expanding your horizons.
For now I will end with the wise words of Henry David Thoreau
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”
Wishing you all Blessings of Love and Harmony for your journey.
