New Moon New Year

What do you want from your life?

The first New Moon of the year is today – the New Moon in Capricorn. New Moons are a powerful time to make intentions. Capricorn gives us strength and endurance for discipline and responsibility. We are already in the mindset of “new-ness” – the energy for bringing in what we want is snowballing right now.

2012 is over — what would you like to leave behind? Can you make the decision to let go? Will letting it go be for the greater good of your life — and perhaps the lives of those around you?

Capricorn energy gives you the strength and discipline to see the bigger picture and take the steps needed to do what is the highest and best. Right now there is a seriousness to the urge to make life what you want.

Alan Watts says, “What do you desire? What makes you itch? What sort of a situation would you like?”

What are you afraid to admit you want to do?

Questions to ask yourself when you wake up in the morning:

Who am I?
What are my desires?
What is my purpose in life?

What are your first thoughts when you ask yourself these questions? What actions can you take everyday towards fulfilling your desires/purpose?

I pose these questions because I am asking them of myself. I am getting clear and taking action.

“For a Yogi, nothing is impossible. If something seems impossible, turn it to something difficult. From difficult to something easy. From something easy, to Realization.” ~Swami Vishnu-devananda

  1. Holly, another fantastic post from you! Indeed, there are currently several Planets in Capricorn (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, and even the Asteroid Juno) are currently Transiting through your Sun-Sign and mine (not to mention any one that has even one Planet in the Sign of the Sea-Goat/Scapegoat/Horny Goat) is going to be feeling this urge to create New Beginnings, ASAP!


    1. ASAP indeed!!! The “restriction” of the Cap energy really just transmutes the energy to move faster – sort of like millions of gallons of water being pushed through a hose rather than a wide, meandering river. It’s very focused and concentrated.

      Thanks, Robert.
