New Moon In Capricorn

newmoon-cap

Tonight is a New Moon in the constellation of Capricorn. This is the final New Moon of the year. As with all New Moons this is the end of a cycle and a new beginning. It is an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start anew. Use this renewed energy to make a fresh start in the coming New Year.

Capricorn is about hard work and strength, but it is also about hard play and vulnerability. You may be feeling a little under-appreciated at the moment for all your hard work, but even though people don’t always show it, know that what you do for them is very much appreciated. Try not to dwell in negativity and let your playful and fun side out. We all need to relax and let our hair down now and again. You deserve a break.

Emotions will be high this New Moon, your feelings will be intense and heightened. Each individual is testing themselves to rise to a higher level through a challenge in some form. Many people start a New Year full of hope and promises, and then start to feel down as the year progresses. Don’t let this happen to you, keep your promises to yourself, don’t lose faith. This is a magical year full of powerful energy that will help you succeed.

Don’t get ready. Be ready. Uranus moves direct just hours before the Capricorn New Moon. This is a green light from the universe to go forward. Uranus rules freedom. Uranus wants to liberate you from the chains that bind you. You are creating your reality. You do this from your thoughts, words, and behavior. What do you want to create in the New Year? You are setting the foundation for the next twelve months. Be practical, patient, and set achievable goals.

Use the power of this New Moon for real growth, look deep within yourself and ask what it is you need to change or to grow, also ask what you need to let go of that which is holding you back. Don’t let fear stand in your way, push past it and make a real commitment to getting to where you want or need to be.

This is a time you should be reflecting on the past and lessons you have learned over the last year. Take the lessons into the future with you. Let go of the old and welcome the new. Take small steps you feel comfortable with to create a positive change. Start your own personal journey to who and what you want to be. Dream big, and think big. Be ambitious, follow your dreams and desires. Allow yourself to be happy.

Have a Blessed New Moon, and may the Goddess watch over you.

Full Thunder Moon

Tonight will be the Full Stag Moon, so called because stags will start to grow their antlers at this time. It is also called the Thunder Moon because of the thunder storms brought on through the hot and humid air.

Tonight’s Full Moon is a Super Moon, scientifically called a Perigee Moon, it is when the moon is closer to Earth than normal, so it appears bigger and brighter in the sky. It is the first of 3 Super Moons coming back-to-back over the next few months. Tides will rise up to 18% higher than normal, and wildlife is highly effected by Super Moons especially birds, sea life, and wolves.

As with all Full Moons, things will be illuminated that were once hidden, raw emotions will surface, but because this is a Super Moon, just like the tides our emotions are also heightened, we will feel everything more than normal. Our senses will be sharp and we will be able to see things more clearly, like a fog has been lifted, you can look further into the future than before.

The Moon is in the constellation of Capricorn, which will give us energy to work hard and deal with matters of money and finances. Think big and dream big, this is a time of looking to the future and asking ourselves what we want from life and how we can achieve it. The Earth is bursting with energy at the moment, new life is blossoming and blooming all around us. Use this energy to propel yourself in a direction you want to go in, the universe wants you to succeed and achieve your goals.

This is a time of new starts, of shedding our skin and moving forward. Change old habits that keep bringing us to the same place in life and embrace new ideas and perspectives. Come out of your comfort zone a little and try new things, keep your mind open to anything.

Change or be changed is the message of this Full Moon. Since the Summer Solstice, you should have felt a sense of something shifting both within yourself and with the outside world because we have crossed a line. The first half of the year is over, it was mid-year in June, we have now entered the second half of the year. This a good time to look back over the last 6 months and look at what you have learned, what you have lost, and what you have gained. Take lessons from what you have learned, good or bad, and use them in your future endeavors whether this be in work, relationships, or family.

Use the energy of this Full Moon to heal. Soak up the intensified energy of the Super Moon and let it cleanse you.

Have a Blessed Full Moon, may the Goddess watch over you.
