It's ages since I've posted on my blog and I have been prompted to because I want to get back to writing about lunar phases again as I find the moon so influential in how I feel and what I am capable of.
The New Moon in Capricorn on 15th January was really intense for a lot of us. It is the second darkest moon of the year (the first being on 5th Dec 2010). We are in a period of darkness anyway, in the depths of winter, a time for reflection and planning. A new moon at this time, really brings us face to face with our shadow side and our deepest needs and desires. For some of us this has manifested as sadness and a feeling not unlike despair. If we can learn to sit with these feelings we can reach a place of acceptance and this is the catalyst to change and growth.
Each new moon signifies rebirth, new starts and the beginning of another cycle. The qualities that capricorn brings to this moon phases are determination, ambition and discipline. This is an even better time than usual to start planning a new project or a change of direction in your life.
How did the new moon affect you? Post your observations here and I'll be back with more lunar info soon.
