NEW MOON in Capricorn
by Rubys Readings
The first NEW MOON of 2018 is on January 17th!
We have been under some heavily saturated energy in Capricorn with six planets now in the sign at the same time. This is very focused energy that has challenged us to take charge of our lives and make a commitment to taking some sort of action.
Capricorn is an Earth Sign and is ruled by Saturn and is represented by the “Seat Goat.” This is a powerful time to manifest and build something with much potential. Our intentions can actually be realized and seen, so we should remain aware of what energy we’re drawing into ourselves and our world. You might be feeling some pressure now to make decisions and be at a crossroads of some kind. The secret to reaching goals is to have trust and faith in something, but especially in yourself. Don’t let fear lead the way, it takes away your motivation and then you won’t make commitments to reach your goals.
The sign of Capricorn teaches us about Authority, so it knows all about fear and control. This New Moon can teach us how to connect to the authority within ourselves, so we can be in our power and take charge of our lives. This is a time to pull back into our souls and reconnect with our spirit, as our energy can become scattered due to being involved in activities have nothing to do with what we want or need, and our soul path.
Making a strong connection to whatever it is you believe in is important now, this helps you make decisions with integrity that are natural and authentic. When manifesting anything you must first learn how to FEEL what it is you want to create! This is the best time to work on “Setting Intentions” or your “Wish Lists” around calling in your deepest desires. New Moons are always about New Beginnings and this particular New Moon in the sign of Capricorn and the Sun also being in Capricorn is strongly about manifesting! Don’t focus on just what you want, also feel how it would be like if your dreams or wishes come true! And how it feels just to think of them. Ask yourself how you want to feel once you’ve achieved your goals? FEELING is the secret to manifesting or creating magic in your life, not THINKING! Thinking is the what draws the energies to you, yes, but if you really want to make something happen you have to feel it.
There are some rather interesting and powerful planetary connections to this New Moon! First off aggressive Mars in its own sign of soulful Scorpio, forms a supportive aspect to this New Moon, which helps us reach our deepest feelings and desires. Jupiter also in Scorpio is making a precise connection to Pluto in Capricorn. The connection between Scorpio and Capricorn during a New Moon teaches us that if we want to reach any goals here in this physical reality we must first be fueled by our passions! This is about being real and authentic, and focusing on what truly makes you happy, rather than what you think you have to do or following someone else’s wishes or dreams.
Now there are also some challenges when this New Moon squares off with rebellious Uranus, which can bring on chaotic and disrupting energies, which leaves us with no choice but to surrender our control and have some faith or belief in something.
All of us no matter what Zodiac Sign have Capricorn in our own personal “Astrology Birth Chart!” This side of us is being challenged to learn how to master our inner-self, instead of wasting so much energy on trying to control the world around us. If you want to see things as you would like, you must first learn how to work with your Spirit. It always starts with you first, no matter what the problem or case may be!
Often the sign of Capricorn gets picked on as being overly weighty, and to serious or focused on fame and material things. The Horned Goat is used to represent Capricorn because it symbolizes the connection between the physical realms and the deeper waters of consciousness. So as we are in very strong Capricorn terrority right now with so many planets in this sign, we are also strongly connected to our own inner-psychic or awareness, if we learn how to combine that and operate from our heart around anything we do and be compassionate, we can manifest our reality into something amazing!
