“We begin this month in the wake of the powerful super full moon/eclipse of the last day of January. We are still under its influence as we begin the month and we can use its wave of energy to launch this time for ourselves in a good way. If you have not spent a bit of time aligning your intentions, you can still take advantage of the eclipse portal to do so. It is best if you can include the intention of ease, clarity, right timing, and support for patience and perfect alignment for your actions to be effortless.
The goal this month is to allow everything to “unfold” as a flower unfolds into a full bloom from a bud. You cannot force a bud to bloom before its time, and you never know exactly how that full bloom is going to look. We, and many of our intentions, are at the bud stage now, and allowing the “unfolding” in their right time will take some shifting in the way we have always approached the way we do things.
The Full Lunar Eclipse of January 31 has opened a time frame that is bookended by a partial solar eclipse mid-month. It creates a perfect structure of time for observation, review, and change. Since eclipses are always about supporting change we should always take the opportunity they present to keep things moving in our lives. We are also moving from a year of the fire rooster in Chinese astrology to the year of the earth dog on February 16. This shifts our container of growth from fiery reactions that stimulate change, to working with more stability and grounding to anchor new ways of “being” and “doing” in our lives.”
“This first New Moon of the year in Capricorn is fertile ground for honoring, tracking and refining your intentions to move along a new path.
New Moons are times to plant a seed and cultivate its growth. With Sun, Moon, Venus, Pluto, Mercury, and Saturn all in earthy, active Capricorn and no planets retrograde in this chart, you are on a launch pad and in the hands of a master creator in the middle world/material plane…
You are also planting your intention seeds for the two and a half year journey of Saturn through Capricorn. Saturn in its own sign is like Saturn squared. Imagine you haven’t seen this revered master in nearly 30 years at this place in your chart. He has returned.
When you are finished with your initiation and training by Saturn in the next several years, what do you want to have accomplished?
Those that know the answer to this question way down in their bones will come out the other side in December 2020 with a grin on their faces, the new found strength of focused application of the will and the heart, and the rewards of methodical building in the material world. One of our major purposes now is learning to bring our spiritual legacy down into our physical, daily, middle world lives. We’ve been to the underworld and know our shadow areas; we’ve been to the upper worlds and touched into Spirit, now our task is to bring that powerful knowledge into fruition in the physical world.”
Unified Willpower : New Moon in Capricorn – 2018
“[T]his lunation generates a focused, sobering vibe… A new Moon in Capricorn is a critical starting point for the execution of projects, tasks, or plans which require enormous amounts of hard work, commitment, and dedication. With such emphasis currently in Capricorn, this New Moon supports sustained effort and discipline channeled toward the accomplishment of long-range goals and objectives.”
(She Wolfe Tarot)
“As we start the New Year, we are inspired to evaluate what works and what doesn’t, what we like and what we don’t like, what we have put up with that no longer serves, and what we have always desired but could not let ourselves have. This is the Evaluation part of the month. The Action piece is what we decide to do about it. Both are equally as important…
This is a year of Service, service of self as well as service to others and our planet. It is also a year of Action. Do it now. Clean it up. Get off your behind and finally have what you always wanted, and do all those things you have only been dreaming of. In order to take advantage of what wants to happen this month, you will need to be ruthless in your Evaluation and disciplined in your Action. Ruthless evaluation will clear the way for action and bring clarity to any confusion about what you really want to manifest.
Our lives have been burdened by the old paradigm of accumulation of unnecessary and unhealthy patterns, physical clutter, mental worry about things we cannot fix, and other obsessive and unproductive habits. This is a year of pragmatism inviting us to be more practical in all areas of life…
Simplicity, back to basics, learning to stay present, and an appreciation and gratitude for what you do have will be most helpful in navigating the coming year and getting clarity as you ruthlessly Evaluate your life.”
“[T]his New Moon is one of acceptance and allowance of the flow that is being revealed to us. As we follow the intuitive sensations these energies create, we can embrace the new energy arriving on the material plane with grace, knowing our new purpose, new life and new dreams are being revealed to us. Embrace each opportunity presented during this lunar cycle with the openness to learn, and you will clearly see growth over this period…
[T]he key to maximizing the power of this New Moon is to remember that we are here to embody our truth and authenticity — and if we are to truly awaken into our higher purpose, we need to live it through the emotional body of feeling and direct experience. Our truth and authority comes through having direct experience which leads to natural wisdom…
We are cyclical beings in a world, and a universe, existing and evolving within cycles upon cycles of growth and transformation. Some of these cycles are small and we experience many in our lifetime, like the cycle of the Moon around the Earth, the Earth around the Sun and so on. Other cycles are so great that they take thousands of years and many generations of life to complete, like the cycle of our solar system in relation to our galaxy.
We are currently existing in a time where some very great cycles are coming to an end, and these great shifts are supported by many synchronised smaller cycles within them. Like clockwork, we are ending old ways of being in the world and completely new ways of existing are being manifested through us. This is an extraordinary time to be alive.”
“Depending on which direction we choose to look, we can feel profound inspiration and hope or great frustration and disillusionment. Since both Saturn and Mercury are at the same degree as the Galactic Center, this alignment indicates an opportunity for a major reset. This is a time when we can take significant steps in releasing old patterns that have blocked our progress…
This Full Moon is also a Super Moon, which means it occurs when the Moon is at perigee, the point in its orbit when it is closest to the Earth. Given that a Full Moon is already associated with heightened emotions, we can expect that a perigee Full Moon will increase our sensitivity on many levels… [A]s our minds take a detour from their usual rational route, we are more open to higher-level insights and signs and synchronicities.”
“Imagine that we are looking at ourselves in a shattered mirror. We find shards as we move through life which give us a more complete reflection of who we are as we go along. Initially, in our early life, there is very little we know and see in ourselves, so those who care for us become the reflection we see in ourselves — and this is how we become conditioned to believe we are things we are not.
From that perspective, our journey of de-conditioning is actually one of finding pieces of the shattered mirror, of seeking and finding our true reflection. We find pieces of that mirror in everything we seek, attract and desire, even the less desirable aspects we find in ourselves and attract into our lives help to bring us toward seeing our inherent wholeness. Our relationships, the people we are attracted to, the work we do and all of our experiences are all little pieces of that mirror…
So today, as the Full Moon in Gemini shares its light with us… take a 360 degree view of your life’s reflection right now, and contemplate what you are seeking in that picture and how you can integrate what you are seeking for deeper levels of wholeness and being. Ask yourself: How can you love and honor yourself more deeply through your experiences? How can you be more understanding and compassionate of yourself, and create the life that makes your heart sing?
As you bring deeper levels of love and compassion into yourself, so too will you find deeper levels of love and compassion in everything around you — as within, so without. That is the nature of our ‘mirror’ reality.”
