January New Moon
cosmic insight from the always, forever conscious.
Capricorn New Moon on the 16-17th
At the time of the New Moon, there will be a line up of the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto all in the sign of Capricorn. This rare alignment is known as a stellium.
Having a line up of so many planets indicates that this New Moon is going to bring a lot of earthy Capricorn energy for all of us to play with.
Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign which means that it holds the energy of leadership, hardwork, determination and groundedness.
Capricorn is represented by the mountain goat, and if you have ever seen a mountain goat, you would know that it is able to use its nimble feet to climb higher and perch itself in places that most other animals would not be able to get to.
This is a good way to describe the hardworking energy of Capricorn, and with so many planets, plus the Sun and Moon aligning in this constellation, we are all going to be able to make a leap of progress as we climb our own mountains.
The January New Moon energy is really going to help all of us to take a leap forward and to use our hard work, skill and knowledge to climb higher and reach further.
This is very ambitious energy that will really help all of us to move forward in the direction of our highest dreams and wishes.
This is the perfect time to take action in your life and begin making small, practical changes in order to bring more joy, abundance, love, success, and whatever other feel-good emotions you want into your life.
Capricorn is a very practical sign, so this is not necessarily about making bold, shocking moves in our lives (unless we feel called to do so), rather it is about making small yet effective shifts to get us closer to where we want to be.
While this line up of Capricorn planets is really going to help us find our ambition and strength, this New Moon has a soft, intuitive energy as well.
While this is a great time to take action and express yourself outwards, there is also this energy pulling us to go deeper within ourselves and to really connect to that heart center.
New Moon’s are all about setting intentions and planting seeds for the future, so think about what you want to grow in your garden and give your wishes to the night sky.
There are such strong cosmic forces all through January and they are all on your side and there to support you.
Let the world know what you need, let the New Moon know what you need, and then open yourself to the guidance that follows.
Even though it doesn’t always feel like it, life is always on your side, you just have to learn to find the joy as you navigate the highs and lows of your very own mountain.
Yoga + Astrology, Grounding with Earthly Capricorn
For the past month, whenever I get on my mat for a morning stretch or my evening flow, I've been unknowingly drawn to steady, grounding poses as the core of my practice. I've been quietly straying away from handstands and fast movements, finding myself standing in Tadasana/mountain pose for five minutes, or juicy squats for however many cycles of breath. It's weird but I was really excited to see how intuitively responsive and connected I felt when reading about how we are moving through a lot of earth energies. I encourage you to find moments throughout your day to slow down and ground, to take a step back and breathe. You got this:)
Here is some insight from Astrostyle that I found about yoga poses in sync with the cosmic flow, Astrology + Asana
