New Moon in Capricorn: Initiation of the Present Moment
A new moon at 12:53am EST at 8 degrees Capricorn on December 29th finds us at a powerful threshold of old and new. This is not an unfamiliar place- for the dance between past and future is constantly being woven creatively anew in every single present moment; and each moment holds infinite possibilities.
What is perhaps new is the dawning realization that this is happening not to us, but through us. Suddenly and slowly, we’ve seen the “stability” and “solid” reality continue to erode from our individual and collective experience, especially since 2012. When we find ourselves in the abyss or in the void- how do we orient ourselves? The simplest answer is also the one that takes the most effort: we do it through being present and making conscious choices of what we want to orient ourselves to- moment by moment. Being present: so simple but not easy. All the sages, prophets & mystics talk about this ability as being the gateway; the difference between heaven and hell. And yet our minds rebel against its simplicity. Here in lies the paradox which Spirit loves and this is our work with this new moon as well as we cross the threshold from 2016 into whatever 2017 will be for each of us & all of us.
How do you cultivate beauty in your own life (beauty that feeds your Soul, not the ego)? How do you experience love in the mundane? How do you attune yourself to an awe-filled life in the midst of fear, doubt, rage, etc? When and where do you actively choose to orient & reorient your focus moment to moment to actively choose your reality that your consciousness never stops weaving?
This new moon in Capricorn is asking us- demanding of us to become masters in our own reality weaving; to live with one foot in each world of Spirit and Matter. Yes, there is tremendous uncertainty right now. Yes the underbelly of racism, misogyny, xenophobia, & anti LGBTQ has been exposed here is the US and well as other western democracies- but it’s what we choose, consciously to put our energy towards going forward which unfolds the new reality & the future we are all co-creating for ourselves, our children, grandchildren & the planet. No one has answers right now & no one knows how we’re going to find our way through this; but this new moon has a strong message that what we choose to orient ourselves, our minds & our hearts towards- will play a powerful role in the future we are all creating in our personal lives as well as in our collective.
Be willing to dive deep, to surrender, to transformation & to step forward consciously even if the journey is revealing itself only one step at a time with no promises- this is the path of the warrior. As I’ve been saying since November, we have all graduated, ready or not, from light workers to light warriors. ~NC
