This New Moon finds itself at 4* degrees Capricorn, an earth sign symbolized by the Sea-Goat: a mountain goat with a fish’s tail. While this may seem like a paradox, it makes sense when you think about Capricorn as the representation of the absolute power and the might of the material world; a master of both land and sea. This same power lies inside you, wherever Capricorn is in your chart (for me it is the fifth house), that is where your potential rests waiting to be awoken and given direction.
It’s easy under this moon to want to control the outcome, but the key is to trust yourself, your skills, your talents: be patient.
There is always room for improvement as Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, would sternly remind us, but one should always take the time to also celebrate success, show appreciation, and be grateful for the tough love that helps us grow. Let us not forget that Capricorn also ushers in the winter season and holds space for multiple holidays around the globe, a time when friends and family gather. Use this time to seek counsel from friends who have climbed the mountain, listen to proud and tender stories from your elders, and pray/meditate for guidance from your ancestors.
CRYSTALS TO GUIDE YOUR WAY
A G A T E
This stone is known to align the mind, body, spirit, & psyche. It creates a strong sense of security and stability. Good for mental function, concentration, and focus. Keep this stone in your pocket and rub between fingers when you feel off-balance.
F L I N T
Releases ties that bind and enhances your ability to achieve independence and self-sufficiency. It is also known to regenerate the lungs and liver. Sweep this stone across the body to heal and seal your aura.
Recite: “I release all ties, vows, promises, expectations, karma, and soul contracts that no longer serve. I give and receive forgiveness and unconditional love.” – Judy Hall
G A R N E T
Detoxes body of negative emotions and revitalizes love and passion. Good for metabolism and libido. Wear Garnet as some form of jewelry to harness it’s powers.
Use any of the four elements to keep your crystals charged for maximum power.
Fire: crystals sit outside in sunlight or near a safe and contained source of fire like a candle, wood fireplace, or camp fire.
Earth: bury crystals in earth, soil, or dirt. Wrap crystals in leaves or rest on a bed of flower petals.
Air: burn incense and keep crystals near the smoke
Water: Let soak in creek, stream, river, ocean, or water from home (not all crystals do well in water so research first). Let crystals sit outside in moonlight (yes, new moon light can still charge crystals!)
