How to Plant the Seeds of New Beginnings with New Moon in Capricorn
You want to start the year off on a good note. We all do. Unfortunately we have been socked with a Mercury retrograde right at the beginning of this year. That can make some of us stressed, but the truth is, that this retrograde is happening with the New Moon in Capricorn is a good thing. Put the pause button on all key matters, and move forward on things that are going to change your life. You really can do it all under this New Moon, by simply planting the right seeds. Here’s how to do it.
• For every step forward, take two steps back. That’s right. Going backwards is often the opposite advice we give. But having a New Moon in Capricorn during a Mercury Retrograde, while Jupiter is also retrograde, means the past is going to play a big role on this New Moon. Correct the past by planting even bigger seeds now, that puts all of that behind you. In order to move forward to epic success this year, you have to take two steps back first. So go back in time, locate what you want changed in your life, then move forward and plant the seeds to do it.
• Your destiny begins now. We say all the time that you are the master of your Fate, and the one that rules your Destiny. That has never been more true than it is under this New Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn is your tenth house activity, your work legacy, and your personal destiny. The greatest things that you can accomplish are found in the tenth house of your birth chart. You can plant those seeds under this New Moon, and truly begin taking control of your destiny. When you do, you will have mysteries revealed within two weeks time that close these chapters, and allow you to fully move forward and get closer to that destiny every day.
• Performance based results. How you look, how you present yourself to the world, what your personality is, none of that matters under this New Moon. Performance is everything. If you know that you are destined for something great this year, then this is the time under this New Moon to begin the planning stages of that success, and find a way to track your performance to ensure you achieve the results you are looking for. This is not a passive New Moon, even though it is happening under Mercury Retrograde and Jupiter retrograde. Planning is key, and when you do, you will be able to produce performance based results that are the physical manifestations of your destiny. What do you believe your destiny is this year? See it now, plan it now, and plan to do all of that this year.
• Love really does heal all. In addition to some retrograde planets in conjunction with this New Moon, we are also seeing some lovely Venus and Uranus activity. The people that you love will take great precedence under this New Moon. That’s who you want your career destiny to work for anyway, isn’t it? You don’t have to focus on career under this New Moon if that is already worked out for you. Instead you can focus on love and commitments, as these themes will be present under this New Moon thanks to Venus and Uranus. As you go through this period, you will be thinking about who is the most important to you of all. Who is the one that is rooted in the Earth with you for the long term? Who can stand the test of time, and be with you at the end of this year to celebrate the epic success that is coming?
• Step outside the box. With Uranus activity in play with this New Moon, we are also seeing a call to action to change the current status quo. The way you found success previously will not be the way that you find success this year. So you are going to have to switch gears, change tactics, and plant the seeds of new beginnings that will take you on a revolutionary path you have never been on. Yes, it’s a little bit scary. But that also means the rewards are that much greater. So be bold, and blaze trails, and take control of your destiny by NOT repeating actions from years gone by.
• Ain’t no mountain high enough. Capricorn is symbolized by the goat, and we know that goats are traditionally pretty good mountain climbers. That is the focus you need to adopt when you are climbing the mountain of your success this year. It all starts with this magical New Moon in Capricorn. Take on the mindset that you are the goat, and there ain’t no mountain too high for you to climb. Start climbing now. Pick the mountain that you want to climb. Is it love? Is it career? All of the planets are in play right now for you to climb the mountain of your dreams. Don’t limit yourself to small mountains that anybody can climb. Take on the mindset that, ain’t no mountain high enough, and begin climbing. Under this New Moon, you will get there. No dream is too big with the New Moon in Capricorn.
• Watch for signs. Yes we say that all the time, but when a New Moon arrives, signs are abundant. And the signs that you should be looking for, should be Earthy, modelling the cues of the Earth Signs, particularly Capricorn and Virgo. This is due to Jupiter energy, although Jupiter is retrograde right now as well, Jupiter energy is heavily in play. Jupiter is currently traveling through Virgo, and also in the North Node of Virgo. So have a look at your birth chart to see which house Virgo is playing in in this lifetime. That is where you want to focus your energy of seed planting under this New Moon. With Jupiter and North Node in Virgo right now, the Virgo placement in your chart is where you will find success this year. And the New Moon in Capricorn can help you! Plant seeds in that house, and watch them blossom into epic events and wildly successful experiences. Where is Virgo in your chart? Pay attention, and look for signs, as Universe is sending you clues to help you discover where your Destiny can be found this year.
And that’s really all there is to it! And it’s a lot. This is a very important New Moon in Capricorn that we are blessed with today. If you play your cards right, all of the planets are waiting to bless you with the epic success that you know you are destined for. So take a few steps back, rework the past into your future, and pay very close attention to the signs Universe is throwing your way during the next two week period. Then, climb that mountain, baby! Ain’t no mountain high enough when it comes to your dreams. What mountain are you climbing? No dream is too big as we start this awesome new year.
