Moon Dark-New in Capricorn16 Jan 2018, by moon&sky in
– practical discipline, structure & perseverance
First new Moon of the year and wow! we are most thoroughly steeped in Capricorn right now (6 planets in Capricorn; effect even more pronounced effect given Saturn’s recent move into Capricorn as well). Saturn-ruled Capricorn is the great manifestor, focussed on practical purpose and what is best in the long term. This energy is all about getting things done.
We are called to claim/re-claim our authority, take responsibility and be diligent and persevering in our undertakings. Saturn/Capricorn plants us firmly in the day-to-day challenges of living an embodied life with all the strength and agility of the Sea Goat. The Earthy Capricorn energy provides us with great support for deep grounding, stability, and honing our practical disciplines; and offers us a rich place for planting our sacred seeds.
Overall this Moontime is a powerful invitation to connect deeply with inner knowing; and to embody the connection between the physical/ material world, and the fluid Waters of heart and body consciousness. Yes, given the abundance of Capricorn energy things may at times feel heavy, even melancholic as we traverse these realms. We are reminded to move slowly, carefully, and patiently; to rest and self-nourish; and to draw deeply on the rich resources of Earth. It is a time to clear the ways and imagine our newly sprouting seeds reaching for the sun. Time to plan the practical ways to bring heart-felt desires into form.
Firmly now your feet immersed in Earth
time to shape a purpose-full rebirth
Deep from the ancient wisdom in your bones
bring forth the passions you wish to enthrone
Set your discipline to embody this tale
Set the sails and let your heart-wisdom prevail
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
May your passion and practice together be embodied in form
