If ever there were a time for grounded, practical, yet transformative change, this is it. A confluence of amazingly powerful energies today set the stage for us all to be able to have a creative year, inspired by the potential to release old fears at the deepest level, to come into the consciousness of the Goddess -- or as some might say, the Divine Feminine -- and to marshal focus and discipline on imagining new forms of empowerment, nurture, and energy for evolving in your karmic lessons.
Those lessons, by the way, take a shift from the Saturn in Scorpio influence for that which needs to be eliminated from your life to the Saturn in Sagittarius truths and dreams that need to be embraced as part of our continuing awakening and walking a path of sacred consciousness. Pretty powerful stuff!
It is rare for a New Moon to fall within hours of the Winter Solstice, making this season and the unfolding year that starts tonight all the more auspicious for new beginnings. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are at the same degree of the same zodiacal sign – in this case, Capricorn.
The energy of Capricorn is organized and strategic, perfect for setting plans that can really be followed through. This alignment gives us great possibility for making the practical and incremental changes to daily life that add up to major, deliberate transformation in how you take charge of your life, your relationships, your career, and your normal environment.
In plain terms, what this means is that many of us will be able to use this astrological energy to bring about desired changes. Blocks of procrastination and self-sabotage can more easily be overcome. But this doesn’t happen magically. Effort on our part is still necessary – and will be rewarded. The Goddess helps those who help themselves.
Astrologically, we have 6 more weeks of winter. Even though the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere marks the gradual lengthening of daylight hours, we still are in a gestational darkness for these 6 weeks – made all the more powerful by the conjunction of Pluto and Venus in Capricorn. It is the early womb-time when karmic codes and energetic nerves and ancestral cellular memories are determining who and / or what will be born of our lives this year.
In other words, during the month of Capricorn, and especially tonight, take advantage of the deepened connection to spiritual consciousness, and to the power of the Goddess to contemplate what it is your soul most truly desires. Then determine the most logical path forward to bring it into the light, using your confident intuitive abilities to know the exact steps and methods that will be right for you.
