“Acceptance makes an incredible fertile soil for the seeds of change.” Steve Maraboli
With this new moon falling just before the new year, this one is no ordinary new moon!
We’re wrapping up the Universal 9 year and are about to embark on a new adventure into the Universal 1 year.
In the Earthy sign of Capricorn with the energy of the ambitious Mer Goat, we’re being provided a wonderful opportunity to tap into our Higher self's guidance with the intention of manifesting a new dream for ourselves on the physical plane.
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 also 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.
The energy expressed by this card is the realm of the taboo. The culturally rejected wild shadow side, which has often led to our self rejection, that we then carry in our subconscious. This shadow is what we fear, and so we are now being asked to face our fears. These are often hidden deeply in our subconscious and have become our blindspots, those that have tripped us up time after time. This time however, we have an amazing opportunity to bring what’s hidden to light, for acceptance and healing.
Without fear but with acceptance of our true nature, what might we create and how might we go about it?
This new moon provides our clean slate.
The past no longer exists. We need not bind ourselves or others to who or what they have been. We are being asked to release our labels and the limits that they create.
We’re being given the opportunity to remove the chains and to accept ourselves wholly and completely.
Centre yourself with 3 deep breaths. Visualise your energy going deep into the Earth as roots of a tree.
Imagine yourself 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 Heaven come down through you to Earth.
Whilst attuned to this energy, set your intentions for carrying this energy of Love with you wherever you go.
You may also like to imagine seeds dropping from your branches. Know that these seeds are messages from your Higher Self and your intentions and visions for the New Year which when tended to, will bear fruit and grow into a garden of abundance for all.
“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” Robert Louis Stevenson
Wishing all a most magical New Moon and New Year.
