This new moon in Capricorn is here to put us on our path. There is a lot of new energy that comes flooding in at the beginning of the new year. You might have felt it poor into your life, like a huge download of energy, ideas, clarity, and inspiration. But, until this new moon all of that energy has yet to be integrated, it's just sort of swirling around us. We need the earthy sign of Capricorn to help ground it into the body. For all of that cosmic, ethereal, universal energy to be utilized it has to be in the body, and your body has to have its feet on the ground.
Use the symbol of Capricorn, the goat, as an archetype right now. The goat knows how to ambitiously climb to the top of the mountain, but it does so while focusing on the next step. Taking one sure footed step at a time, with consistency that creates stability. It is what allow the goat to gain wisdom and confidence along the way. The goat is practical and prudent and can help take your dreams and goals and bring them into reality.
Spend some time today, or in the coming days, preferably with your feet on some earth, thinking about the mountain you want to climb. And it might not be a goal that is outward or tangible, but one that is more about achieving something inside, something about who you are as a person. The new year helps the new energy flood in, but now it is time to sort through all of that, and get clear on the direction you are being called to walk in. Think about what parts of you are ready to evolve. Because this is a new moon, and it is in the beginning of it's lunar cycle it can help us as we begin our new journey. It's like a blank sheet of paper, full of potential and possibility. And remember, sometimes it's the invisible journey that leads us to the gold.
