This evening (6.33pm) a New Moon arrives.
And as always New Moons signify new beginnings.
It’s that opportunity offered each month to start a fresh new chapter.
And while, in the Astrological world, the New Year doesn’t start until March
This New Moon in many ways sets the scene for 2022.
Being in the sign of Capricorn – the most serious and hard working member of the Zodiac
This lunar cycle ushers in the energy of duty and responsibility
As the focus of this Moon is with the practical realities of life.
Capricorn is represented by the sea goat
This mythical creature – half goat with the hind body of a fish – is the most authoritative of the three Earth signs.
It has the determination to reach the top of the mountain
Whatever the terrain
And the tenacity to overcome the obstacles that life will place in its path.
This serious sea goat also has it’s roots in ancient Mesopotamia
The region which is now home to Iraq, Kuwait, Turkey and Syria
As it was here that it was first seen as a manifestation of the God Ea
Ea had a human form cloaked in a fish’s skin and was revered as a great being of wisdom, vision and vast intellect
It was said that he rose from the sea, bringing forth the gift of civilisation to humanity
Also called the Father of Light, Ea was said to periodically reincarnate during periods of crisis to instruct humankind
So notice where 12 degrees of Capricorn sits within your astrological chart
As this is the area of your life that this New Moon is activating right now
This is where you are being called to be tenacious
To set those long term goals that you can work steadily towards
Because however distant your dreams may feel
This Moon brings you the divine power and inspiration of the sea goat,
Because this is time to remember that you are your own authority
And that your rewards will come through diligence and perseverance.
So during these times of great transition
Know that this new chapter is one of fortitude.
That there is a reservoir of hope, courage and determination that you can tap into
Because even though you’re still travelling through the heart of Winter
The light had returned – each day is getting longer
So use this seasonal energy of contemplation and introspection
To consider the call of your future aspirations
As declaring your greatest ambitions, whatever the outside circumstances are, will go along way
Because this is the most powerful time to sow the seeds of tomorrow
To really consider what it is that you want to be recognised for
Not just in 2022 but in your unique journey of life.
