Capricorn New Moon ~ Climb Every Mountain...
“Climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every rainbow, ‘till you find your dream.”
New Moon in Capricorn – Saturday, January 9th (5:30pm PST). This is the first new moon of the year, and in the ambitious, industrious sign of the Goat, it offers the potential to really get on top of those New Year’s resolutions! New moons are like cosmic doorways into new energies, allowing us to shed old skin and release the past.
Capricorn is a wonderful manifester--especially in the material realm—career, money, security—and setting real-world intentions can be extremely powerful now. This new moon also flirts with transformative, soul-engaging Pluto, giving the lunar landscape an extra transformative vibe.
At the same time, there’s no shortcuts! Hardworking, no-frills Saturn—Capricorn’s ruler—reminds us of the importance of discipline and willpower to get to the top of the mountain. Saturn adds strength to the journey, along with organizational ability. This is a time to be focused and stay realistic; to work diligently towards your vision. By doing so, the rewards can be great.
This new moon joins the Mercury Retrograde, a reminder that no matter how mindful and aware you are of getting ahead, sometimes it can be two steps forward, one step behind. This is the cosmic dance to embrace. Don’t worry if your visions and intentions don’t come true now, this is fertile ground for planting new seeds and when Mercury goes direct on Jan 25th—you may be happily surprised at the results!
