New Moon in Capricorn - 16/17th January 2018

The next Moon cycle will begin January 16th/17th (depending on your location), 2018, with the New Moon in Capricorn.

The start of 2018 fell on a Full Moon on January 1st, which felt a bit awkward, because the energies of new beginnings and fruition and peaks didn't match very well, like starting your car engine while you are already driving 100 mph.

If your car is up to that, perfectly fine. But it's also possible that your engine blew itself, or came to a halt.

For me, these past two weeks into the fresh new year have a grinding energy to them. Although I have been productive and creating a lot, there is something going on in the background, a heavier, grounding, slowing down energy. That is the earthy Capricorn energy, turning energy into matter. Matter is slower than energy. Planets shifted into Capricorn and now the Sun and Moon are aligning in this sign too, it feels like things are barely moving... 

Is everything coming to a complete standstill? No, it isn't. 

Think about the flow of life as a musical piece... the music slows down, becomes softer and you can instinctively feel the pause coming... diminuendo and rallentando ... not knowing exactly what the musicians will be playing, but definitely anticipating the Grand Finale

In music, we find this pause mesmerizing. In life, we tend to degrade it as annoying.

Whenever the energy is so grounding and slow, you're invited to tune into the silence before the storm yourself. Find yourself in the beauty of the pause, anticipating a period of great action, speed, and progression. The final moments of 2017 didn't happen until now. This is the time we really close the doors on the past 6 months. We are embarking on new Eclipse season that will last from January until August 2018. A period of new things, growth, and expansion. 

This New Moon in Capricorn is the gateway to a new time of growth. 

Pay attention to your intentions, wishes, and goals. Capricorn is an Earth sign, and with so many planets moving into Capricorn, manifestation is imminent. 

Really use the days up to the New Moon to bring situations, projects to a closure, release the things that do not serve you. Make space for the new things to come in. Prepare yourself and your life for the Grand Finale.

Be very clear about your intentions. Re-evaluate your resolutions one final time. Maybe they didn't take off yet... why? Are they really yours? What are you truly longing for? What will make you truly grow and expand? 

Align your resolutions and intentions with your true Self and use this portal to 2018 to the best of your abilities. 

Capricorn will help you manifest everything, soon.
