New Moon in Capricorn January 2018
This New Moon is the first new moon of 2018, falling in the sign of Capricorn, cardinal earth. You are being called upon to dig deep and bring forth your leadership qualities. What was seeded at Winter Solstice and the Galactic alignments of last month will begin to grow now. We are coming out of hibernation, and the new shoots of this year are already visible, just two weeks before Imbolc and the beginning of Spring.
Where are you putting your focus? What is uppermost in your mind at the moment? This is an indicator of what you can build this year, and where you can channel your energy. Immense assistance is available to you now as you set your intentions with the power of the mountain goat. Look to the peak of the mountain; take the first steps and plan out your route. Of course, life is full of surprises, detours, new realisations and this is all part of the divine plan. However, the power of Capricorn lies in structure and strategy, focus and determination, and the ability to build. Now is the time to draw on this energy and use it to catapult you into the future you desire.
We are blessed at this new moon to have an abundance of Capricorn energy, as an array of six planets are currently climbing the Capricorn mountain, and the power is increased sixfold for your personal goals and dreams. Saturn the ruler of Capricorn is conjuncting Mercury, so communications are weighty and important, which is good for business discussions, self-discipline regimes, serious relationship talks, contracts and planning. Pluto is conjuncting the Sun, Moon and Venus, lending a fateful quality to the new moon day, with the power of relationships, new connections, soul mates and new beginnings. This is an ideal time to start new projects, forge new connections, and look deeper into the beauty of the life you already have.
If you are planning to launch something, it is advisable to wait until a week after the new moon, when the moon is visible in the sky.
Capricorn Moon Meditation:
Find a quite comfortable place to sit. Cleanse your space and your energy field with smudge, incense or aura spray. Light a candle, and intend that your space is energetically clear and full of light. Call in your spirit guides, angels, and ascended masters to hold the sacred space. Choose your favourite crystal to meditate with – good Capricorn crystals are quartz, smoky quartz, elestial, diamond – or whatever feels right to you. Hold the crystal at your heart and breathe into it, and you may wish to place a crystal at your base chakra.
Spend some time conscious breathing, in through the nose and out through the mouth. Breathe all the way down to the base of your spine and back up.
Feel yourself sinking into the earth, if you wish you can send down roots, and connect deeply with the heart of Mother Earth. Sit there for a few moments giving all your stresses, worries and anxieties to Mother Gaia, for her to recycle them into pure energy.
Now bring the earth energy up into your feet, your legs, your whole body. Feel it energising you. Bring your awareness to your Base Chakra at the base of your spine, the perineum. Feel the earth energy flowing into your base. Allow it in.
Now feel pure white Source light flowing in through your Crown. Flowing down through your body filling you with unconditional love.
Call your Higher Self down into your base chakra. Meditate on this for as long as you need. Feel your Higher Self anchoring in at the base.
Meditation Intention: What is the highest expression of my spirit in this physical world? What does my soul want to create? What is the most enlightened manifestation of my essence in this life?
