Every month the moon becomes darkened in the evening sky creating a doorway for our intentions to be received. We get a fresh opportunity to wake up areas of our lives, create space for renewal, new perspectives, and new beginnings at the monthly New Moon. No matter what spiritual background you come from, participating in this monthly exercise can help you connect to your soul’s purpose and plan steps to get closer to it. Give yourself permission to connect authentically with yourself this month. Since we live in a Universe that is constantly moving, each month the New Moon is at a different place in our Cosmos allowing us a chance to plant different intentions throughout the year. A new cycle begins this time in Capricorn which is about setting goals for manifesting in the outer world.

WORD FOR THE MONTH
Career, goals, management, ambition, accountability, self-discipline, intuition, and compassion.
Welcome to the first New Moon of thirteen this year. It just so happens that this first New Moon of the year is also an Eclipse, so we get to manifest our dreams and wishes beyond this moon cycle for several months. Since during a Solar Eclipse the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, it interrupts the flow of energy and gives us a kind of cosmic reboot. New Year’s resolutions made or not, most of us intuitively feel an energy shift whenever the year turns.
The past few energy cycles focused on an inward journey of transformation and reforming the matrix of our inner world so that we can better prepare what will manifest in our outer world. Capricorn’s energy is about taking power in the external world, creating the change we want to nurture our dreams in a realistic fashion. Therefore, this cycle we are called to consider the future and preparing for it. Make a long-term commitment this month in achieving some desired goal in the future. With discipline, pure focus, and ambition, you can learn practical skills and have success. Capricorn is the most ambitious of all the signs with a strong drive for success, but one must be concerned with stepping on others in its climb to the top. We are at a time in society where we must consider our impact to the collective human race while we are striving for our personal goals. Avoiding the Tragedy of the Commons, developed in Greek philosophy, should be everyone’s goal, as its in our best interest in the end. This tragedy is currently what’s destroying our world with greed and an imbalanced sense of entitlement at the basis.
Consider the difficult landscape that you had to travel through to reach this point in your life. No one has had a perfect path. Capricorn’s New Moon energy wants us to assess what we need in order to grow and address our challenges found on our life journey. What are your fears? Knowing what sabotages us provides amazing awareness. And guess what… fears will sabotage your plans. Be mindful of what your fears are when navigating this month’s cycle. Up for review is anything that we didn’t fully process in 2018. What is still not working? Find cues to what these are by paying attention to what carries an emotional charge and/or what occupies your thoughts. It is highly possible that if we are not mindful of what theses things might be, a strong, disruptive, sudden change may occur with Uranus coming out of retrograde the same day as the New Moon. Sometimes we are pushed forcibly onto our path if we aren’t close to it. If you happen to be close to your path, this surge of energy will renew your spirit and set you off in fast motion.
Our roads are often plagued with limitations, but by recognizing them we get opportunities to focus on what really matters within our boundaries. The lines have been set, now we are to work within them. Our home is where we start. Light some candles and clear your home environment of dense and negative energies by burning incense or sage. Regardless of how Capricorn’s energy plays out for you this month, one thing for sure is that we are strongly reminded that we are worthy of love. Take time this next month to recognize and acknowledge your emotions, the first step in learning to love ourselves.
As always, a drop of wisdom – inspire and uplift others, instead of tearing down with sarcasm and negativity.
With light and love,
HOW TO MAKE A NEW MOON LIST:
Gather paper and a pen, pencil, marker or other type of writing utensil.
Review the focus areas for this month and begin to think about how they apply to your personal and professional life.
Write a list of what your hopes, dreams, goals, priorities, wishes, and prayers are for that moment. Typically no more than 10 is recommended. Be very specific, or extremely vague.
Review last month’s list and revise them on this month’s list, if necessary.
Place your notes somewhere safe and special to you. Some tape them to a window, under a lit candle, or leave them in their notebooks on their desks. Create the space that works for you. Leave it there all month until the next New Moon.
Allow and have faith in the power of inter-connectedness in our universe to manifest your list.
