New Moon :: January 16, 2018 :: 9:18pm EST :: 26 degrees Capricorn
Walk along the mountain path and navigate craggy edges. Arrive at a fork in the road …
It’s time to plan. Map out your desires. What do you want to achieve? How do you want to feel? When you’re done looking at the big picture, you’ll know which way to go. For now, wait at the fork.
The Capricorn mountain path is earthy. It smells like soil and new grass. It’s drenched in shadow for a moment as the Sun and Moon meet for the Dark Moon. But your dreams for where you want to go aren’t in the dark. Seed them. Take the time to imagine them.
How have the last few weeks of Mountain Goat effort have felt? Examine everything you’ve learned in the past that might inform your future path. Maybe now you’re better informed and you can make a solid plan.
Capricorn filters the world through goals and ambition, and helps you decide which ladder you want to climb. If you are burnt out or overwhelmed, it’s time to encourage yourself come up with a better system. If you are feeling stable and surefooted on your mountain path, the goat is leading you in the right direction.
With Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio making a supportive angle to the Capricorn herd of planets, your medicine comes when you turn toward your emotions instead of hide from them. Face yourself honestly. What has been working? What isn’t working any longer?
If you are being tested, it’s because Capricorn limitations are asking you to get clear about what you truly want. What will you say “yes” to? What needs a solid “no”?
The Capricorn Moon can help you make a new plan grounded in realism. As we move into Aquarius season you can take this plan and make it even more visionary so that you surprise yourself into a better reality …
