New Moon in Capricorn
“We rich nations, for that is what we are, have an obligation not only to the poor nations, but to all the grandchildren of the world, rich and poor. We have not inherited this earth from our parents to do with it what we will. We have borrowed it from our children and we must be careful to use it in their interests as well as our own. Anyone who fails to recognise the basic validity of the proposition put in different ways by increasing numbers of writers, from Malthus to The Club of Rome, is either ignorant, a fool, or evil.” Moss Cass
Alchemy, Integrity and Discernment are key words for this New Moon.
In the Earthy, Yin sign of Capricorn and with the energy of the ambitious Mer Goat, we’re being provided with an invitation to shift our awareness to being custodians of the land and implementing new ways of honouring and sharing Gaia’s resources. You may like to consider new ways you can contribute. In 2017 we were tempered. Now we have the opportunity to be Alchemist’s, turning lead to gold and what’s been, into something far more equitable.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn (Satan) and associated with The Devil Tarot card. We see in the card the horned goat (or horned God) with the Devils tail, we see chains that can have us bound, as fear can do. Horns have been ever present in religious imagery as symbols of fertility and power. It was only when Christianity attributed horns to Satan as part of his iconography that horned gods became associated with evil in the Western world. The Devil evoked the church fuelled fear that a person could "lose their soul" to wild and passionate forces and sex was demonised as a way of controlling our power.
We now have the opportunity to remove the chains and to accept ourselves wholly and completely. Free to create anew.
I charged the Devil card using my Illuminati Tarot deck, asking for a message for this New Moon, and received 10 of Pentacles. Pentacles = Earth, so this couldn’t be greater confirmation of the need for sharing and providing for the entire Earth family. Yes, it will take work, but the rewards will be the results of our commitment. Any New Moon offers the energy for planting seeds, this one asks us to consider planting them literally! with an intention of a garden of Abundance for all.
Centre yourself with 3 deep breaths
Visualise your energy going deep into the Earth as roots of a tree
Feel your connection to the Great Mother
Imagine your body as the trunk and feel your own strength
Imagine your arms as branches, you may like to lift them as your conduit to the Heavens
Feel the energy of Father Sky come down through you to meet Mother Earth
You may like to imagine, or literally plant seeds for the new garden of Eden, which when tended to, and nurtured, will bear fruit and grow into your garden of abundance
Feel Gratitude for all that Earth provides
Feel the Love of our great Mother Earth
and then feel that Love amplify through you to all Beings
Wishing you many New Moon Blessings
