Peremptory and commanding, the Capricorn New Moon arriving on January 17, at 2:17 AM, 26 degrees 54 minutes of the sign, sets the tone for 2018, while reminding us what the Saturn in Capricorn era is all about.
As germinal and incipient as a New Moon can be, this one, occurring in the farsighted, goal-oriented sign of the Sea Goat, already contains the multitude of possibilities that unfold if and when we tap into our potential and accept the responsibility that comes with anchoring our vision down to earth. I usually write that the start of every lunation marks the ideal time to pursue an emotional and spiritual reboot; however, when it comes to work-oriented, pragmatic Capricorn, it’s wise to keep in mind that our thoughts hold the power to reverberate on our reality, and that, last but not least, our actions and willingness to show up for ourselves determines the final result. Under this sophisticated New Moon, we are not only seeding our intentions into the fertile, organic soil of our material experience, envisioning purposes that are realistically attainable and that can elevate us towards new phases of growth and progress. We’re also wholeheartedly (Capricorn doesn’t do half-assed) committing to the journey, getting real about the steps we need to take to reach our destination. Dreaming, AND doing.
