I am a free-wheeling Sagittarius raised, in part, by two very Capricorn sisters. While my spontaneous nature and, shall we say, flexible, approach to things like deadlines, chore lists, and other day to day matters has often clashed with their more regimented and structured style, I’ve also learned a great deal from my sisters and the other Capricorns in my life. I find that things are a bit better for me when I have a Capricorn and a Virgo on my team to keep me focused, grounded, and goal-oriented. (There’s just so much magickal stuff out there to distract me and send me off on flights of fancy and adventure!)
This New Moon is in Capricorn, and comes at a time when many of us are already focused on the practical matters in our lives — decluttering after the holidays, getting our tax documents pulled together, setting goals and making resolutions for the New Year to come. Practical, grounded Capricorn is here to support you as you decide what to carry forward into the New Year and what to let go. More importantly, the New Moon in Capricorn helps you see the practical steps you need to reach your goals and make the changes you want in your life. Yet, at the same time, Capricorn Moon supports you as you discover your life’s purpose, your higher calling, your lifework. The energy of the Capricorn Moon helps you see how the small, everyday steps that you are taking do — or do not — support the work you’ve been put on this Earth to do.
What are you manifesting this New Moon? How does this relate to your larger goals and resolution — for 2017, and beyond? What tools are you using to reflect and discover your calling and the steps you need to take to fulfill that calling?
My fellow Priestess, Rose at The Bliss Institute, offers up some ideas for how to work with the Capricorn New Moon. Feel free to share here about your explorations and realizations, your manifestations, and goals, in this last New Moon of 2016.
