Moon Watch: New Moon in Capricorn
“The power is in you. The answer is in you. And you are the answer to all your searches: you are the goal. You are the answer. It is never outside.” —Eckhart Tolle
New year, new you! Or so they say. This first New Moon of 2016 in Capricorn is beckoning you not to spend time researching all the ways in which to manifest your goals, but rather, look within to find the tools to fulfill them -- everything you need lies inside. Be as the goat (Capricorn) climbing the mountain. Keep going up, keep trucking forward, and remember to pause to re-balance and enjoy the view along the way. If you allow it, 2016 is going to feel like climbing to the top of Mother Earth's most breathtaking peak. And along the way, when you remember pause to enjoy the view, you’re bound to see some of the most vibrant colors and experience more love than ever before. You just MUST remember to take time to express yourself. Be free! Use this dark night to tap into what makes you feel loved and supported; close your eyes and visualize a time when you felt most connected to the Universe. Therein lies your power tools — create! You can have it all.
Traits Amplified: Detoxify, release, realize, climb, balance, power, rooted, loving, growing
Questions to Ask: Am I taking enough “me” time to get re-balanced and re-connected to my purpose? In what relationships can I be more compassionate? Where am I spending my money, and can I be spending (or saving) it more wisely? Am I actively fulfilling my dharma?
What to Go For: Stand on strong foundations. Even something as simple as wearing comfortable, but super cool, shoes can help set you firmer into the ground as you trek through the forrest to your dreams. Similarly, (if you’re not too cold) attempt to let your toes take some one on one time in the grasses and sands of Mother Earth. She’s the one supporting you most this month — reach out to her, and she will heal you.
What to Watch Out For: Careful to not emanate too much of Mercury (who has gone retrograde until January 25) right now. Do not backtrack on your wildest dreams — keep going! Also, be careful of where your finances are flowing at this time. Realize that you cannot control everything, and there is so much beauty in that. Release the need to be in control, and allow this extra space and extra energy to catapult you into being of more service to others. And like I said: you can have it all, just not all at once. The greatest patience is humility, so have some patience my friend. Live in the moment, stay rooted in to the core, and soar through the stars.
