New Moon in Capricorn blessings to you all at the start of 2021. With this new moon we may be looking for inspiration as we begin the New Year. The qualities of ambition, striving and achieving are strong in Capricorn. However it doesn't achieve these without patience and perseverance, so patient we will have to be to get things moving forward in the way we want to. That doesn't mean we should be thinking small however.
" We cannot achieve more in our life than what we believe in our heart of hearts we deserve to have." James R Ball
Capricorn brings a structural preference, the goat is happy amongst the mountains, climbing steadily with small steps until it reaches great heights. Keep focused on one step at a time if you feel there's a long way to go to meeting your current goals.
Related to our bones and especially our knees Capricorn has a big influence on our body. Let's take a moment to have gratitude for our bones, our skeletal structure that enables us to stand tall and move around.
Don't feel you have to get everything up and going in the next few weeks. Be clear on your intentions, goals and plans and let them unfolded and be flexible when things don't exactly go to plan. Remember the bamboo image of it blowing in the wind, strong through it's roots it remains upright despite the winds pushing against it.
A New Moon can be a low and dark time, but know that brighter and lighter days are ahead as we enter this cycle. If you're tired then rest, do some restorative yoga, meditate and keep looking after yourself with good hydration and nourishing foods.
If you've been over indulging at the festive time now is a good time to start making the changes you want in your diet. Some of us can cut everything out at once and for others it would be more realistic to start with one thing at a time. Be kind to yourself and know that each day is a chance for a new beginning.
" The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones." Chinese proverb.
