This New Moon energy presents opportunity for evolution, an inward focused, quiet evolution that will reach fruition months from now. The opportunity is in the ability to tap into the inner self and be present with it, and to set down plans for your growth and evolution into the future.
This new moon is very personal. The Nadir (IC) and the moon/sun are conjunct each other in Capricorn, which is a meticulous sign. Jupiter is right between the moon/sun and the IC as well, which gives us a nice boost in our efforts, and signifies an opportunity for creating bright future. The message in this moon is for us to lay down seeds that will grow in the future. These are very personal seeds, this work is very close to our hearts, and represents the very essence of ourselves. This theme has been around for several weeks now, with the full moon on the 12th which was another very personal moon, but one in where we were called to see our authentic selves in the public eye. This one isn’t so much about showing our authenticity in the public eye, but it is more about taking real steps to plan and work toward the future. Not only that, but these steps and efforts that we are to be working on are actually related to our unique genius, as seen in the trine with Uranus in Taurus. Both the sun/moon/Jupiter/IC are in Capricorn, with Uranus in Taurus, two earth signs; hence the planting of the seeds metaphor. The earth signs provide a stable platform, and a medium in which to plant these seeds.
Think of what your goals are for the longer term, and identify what you can be doing now to work towards those goals. This is a quiet energy, but a powerful one. Its powerful because the energy says it is by the aspects in the chart for the new moon. Therefore, now is a good time to check in on your true desires, not the ones that other people say you are supposed to want, but the true desires of your unique and authentic self. Identify, remember, honor those desires. There is nothing better than seeing our authentic selves and taking some sort of steps towards embodying that authenticity in our actual lives. Identify what next steps you want to do for your self, and take the initiative to step forward. That is the planting of the seed. It takes time for the shifts and changes to occur. For those of us who believe there is a more loving and healed world out there for us to inhabit, this will take time to come to fruition. Every effort by any one person is so important. What is needed to create the changes we want to see is a shift in consciousness to a more wholistic view of the planet earth and how we can live here peacefully. Thats why identifying your authentic plan for your life is crucial for you, and it positively effects everyone. Next, taking a step or two or three in the direction of your authentic growth is also crucial.
We can’t get to a different world by waiting for others to make the changes. We have to make the changes ourselves. Whether your authentic life plan is in the public eye or behind the scenes in private, it is all important and it all matters for everyone. So, do the work! A great way to start is to take some time to go deep inside yourself and see what comes up while in meditation. When we sit in meditation the chatter of our mind begins to clear and we are left with feelings and thoughts that are undercurrents of our true selves. What is out of balance may feel uncomfortable. What is authentic may feel more real. I use sound in meditation to provide focus and a catalyst for self realization and personal evolution. The sound provides a medium in which to meditate in that carries away the chatter, and allows for the authentic realizations to come forward.
As we get awareness on our authentic selves we can start to see what may need to fall away, and what we may need to add to our lives. The seeds to plant are what you identify that you may need to add to your life. Planting a seed like this might mean starting a new pursuit, or restarting the pursuit of an interest. It may mean taking a new class, it could mean beginning a new therapy. Whatever it is, its about your genius, and its about your bright future.
