As we woke to a brand new year, we’ve also risen to a rare New Moon. This is exciting. It just adds a lot power to the old saying: ’Today is the first day of the rest of your life’. A new day is already a gift in itself. If we can just open our heart a little bit wider today, and just play with the moment, we can allow our dreams, fantasies, and imagination to become one with our hearts and the universe. This particular connection that we create is a very special ingredient, which will ignite a magical cosmic seed, that can help us mold our year ahead.
The new year promises us a clean slate, so in return, we create new promises. The New Moon offers us a new lunar cycle, which encourages us to move forward, with a whole new emotional approach. Resolutions in this Capricorn/Saturn-ruled year will require much more fuel than ever… including lot more heart and soul. In reality, this will be necessary for nurturing our true inner wealth, as well as for the purpose of figuring out what we really need, and what we’re actually willing to do, to achieve it.

This very powerful darkness of the Moon will influence our more serious side, reminding us of the necessary efforts and responsibilities that are required, just to get the job done. As we become more understanding of what we need, and hope to accomplish – we’ll be more ready to roll up our sleeves, throw off our gloves, and get our hands dirty. Emotions will gravitate, drawing the stars and our dreams come closer to our reality. And while they’ll be just within our reach, the only way we’ll be able to grab a hold of them – will be by digging great depths into our own hearts. There is success that is written in the stars this year, but it’s not going to be easy. And in all honesty, it’s not suppose to be easy. There’s much to experience through all that hard work, an important life lesson to learn, and karmic debt to pay off. Saturn (Capricorn’s ruler) is also wading through the dark intense waters of Scorpio. We’re in the process of learning our own darkness through lessons of the soul. So as we try to hold control and build structure, we’re going to be faced with a lot of old emotional baggage, situations from our past, people from our memories, and karmic experiences. With the influence of Scorpio, an inner sacrifice will be required of us, which will only intensify our strength and character. As we amputate the skeletons in our closets, our load will generously lighten, our posture will become more straightened, and we’ll be able to stand much taller than before. But we will need to search deeper within ourselves, so that we’ll understand how we’ve embraced own limitations, which protected us from our own fear of failure, and growth.

The intentions that we send out for this powerful New Moon should favor areas that are connected with the Capricorn influence, like: business, home, family, status, career, finances, commitment, government, property, antiques, boundaries, food, religion, old fashion values, manufacturing, education, grandparents, and security. We’ll also need to put on our blinders, lace up our strongest work boots, and stick to a more serious schedule in order to weather against the distractions and pressures of life. Yes, achieving our goals is going to be a lot of hard work, with blood, sweat, and tears. But the more we work, the more we come alive. And life is growth. And you’re goal is to grow into a better and improved you, right? And if we should relax in our efforts, we’ll conveniently trap ourselves with our darkest demons.. in a very dark gloom – as those around us are growing and moving ahead… without us. So put in the extra time and energy and make 2014 happen like never before.
The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart. Buddha
Our energy level and moods are naturally more very sensitive with the New Moon, but the influence of the Sun/Pluto conjunction can take our sensitivities to the extreme. This darkness intensifies what we’re feeling as we’re faced with our past, old memories, and who (or what) we thought was dead, gone, and buried. If we’re easily spooked by our own shadows, practice mindfulness, to be in control of responses and reactions. Wishing you magical New Moon Blessings, and a successful New Year! Wishing you and yours, much love, with a heart full of prayers for a happy, healthy, and healing 2014.
