Happy New Moon!
It is the first New Moon of the year, and this particular moon is giving us that "new year" feel we've all been looking for and anticipating.
Capricorn is a practical and grounded sign telling us that it's time to get real about what we want in life.
Being an Earth Sign, this Capricorn New Moon is asking us to do something solid to ensure the growth ahead.
Capricorn plays a big role in the skies this month. There is a lot of progress to be made if you can keep yourself focused on your goals.
Each New Moon cycle we look into the lunar energy for the month ahead and pull cards to help us steer the energetic waves.
Read on to see what the New cycle holds for you!
1/16-1/17 New Moon in Capricorn
The New Moon in Capricorn is really asking us to face some realities we may have been wanting to avoid. It's time to put your focus into a place that will help you see real growth in your life.
Many of the goals that once felt unattainable are now proving themselves to be within reach. Now is the time to take some solid steps towards these goals.
Capricorn knows this will take some work on your end.
Capricorn energy is very potent right now. Strictness, responsibility, goals and preparation are on the forefront right now.
Saturn is in it's home sign of Capricorn, and the sun has recently joined it there. Venus (ruler of relationships, healing, and creativity) is also conjunct this New Moon, bringing relationships, health and order to the spotlight.
The New Moon is square Uranus which may have feeling the need for change, aware of our boredom, and wanting to rebel in many ways. The New Moon is also sextile Mars, so energy may be heightened, passions stoked, mood swings can happen.. and there is a huge need to release this energy physically! This aspect paired with the conjunction of Venus may be effecting our relationships asking us what we truly want in our lives and showing us the steps towards how to get there.
Let Capricorn's energy guide you this month. Be practical about your goals and begin taking the steps that are needed to get you where you want to be.
The Card Pulled for this cycle is the Manifest Card. The New Moon is the perfect time to set intentions for the future. Tonight's New Moon holds many potent energy for manifestation with the diligent sign of Capricorn on our side. Be aware of what you are manifesting right now, and take steps to intentionally work towards manifesting your goals. What steps can you take during this New Moon? How can you solidify and support the growth and manifestation of your dreams?
1-24-18 First Quarter Moon
The First Quarter Moon takes place in the gentle sign of Taurus. Patience, practicality and diligence are on the rise, aiding support to the ebbing Capricorn energy.
Taurus, the Lover is helping nurture the seeds that we planted during this New Moon. The Earth signs can feel a bit slow moving at times, but trust in the inevitable growth. Continue to do your side of nurturing, and trust that the universe is doing the rest.
Persistent effort is rewarded right now. It's best to not do anything rash, instead focus on the growth, no matter how small or slow it may seem at this time.
Card Pulled for this cycle is the Create Card. There is a lot that you can do right now. The Waxing Moon ignites our energy and expands our mind into new realms. The door to your imagination is open! Walk through the door. The realm of your imagination holds answers to your questions and keys to help you create the life you want.
1-31-18 Full Blue Moon & Lunar Eclipse
This is the first lunar eclipse of the year, and it happens to be a Blue Moon and a Super Moon. A Blue Moon is the second Full Moon in one month. Because of the modern calendar that we use, Blue Moons are rare. Being paired with the Lunar Eclipse makes for a very special Lunar Event! In fact, this is the first time it's happened in 150 years!
The Blue Moon is a reminder. Remember your own fullness. Remember your own magick and magnetic power. This Full Moon is taking place in Leo, the Hero. Leo can sometimes be seen as a selfish or self-centered sign.. but there are many healthy aspects of selfishness. Make yourself a priority during this time. You are the one that holds all of the answers deep within you.
Remember your magick. Allow this Blue Moon in Leo to remind you of your own greatness.
This Full Moon is also the Sage Moon!
The Sage Moon is an indication that spring is on it's way. Winter nights are slowly becoming warmer and the light is returning to the land once again.
Like Persephone, we are soon making our journey back from the underworld. What lessons have you learned from your journey within this year? What message did you bring back from the underworld? There is a light at the end of the tunnel waiting to reveal your next step. Walk through this door and let the light shine through you and break you open.
As you prepare for this new chapter, take time to really release what is holding you back. Look at the lessons you have learned from your past and utilize them for your future.
2-7-18 Last Quarter Moon
The Last Quarter Moon takes place in Scorpio. Scorpio is the Shaman and represents our own inner wisdom.
Scorpio tends to always make things a little more black and white. This can often be an emotionally intense time for many. The veil is lifted and messages from your guides or higher self may be making themselves known.
Find a healthy outlet to express these emotions.
This is a good time for magick making and preparing for the next New Moon. Spend some time alone to recharge and regroup.
The Card Pulled for this phase is Surrender. You are being asked to look deep within yourself. What do you need to release? There may be a sense of sacrifice from this, but surrendering doesn't always have to come with a price. Sometimes when we surrender, we really are winning. Surrender and let the current take you. Take time to heal and look within. The ebbing moon in Scorpio provides for emotionally unstable waters. Surrender to it and know that it can be realized as a blessing in your future.
This is the week before the next New Moon. Surrender. Go within, be aware of what is standing in your way, and take the steps towards releasing it.
