In the Aura of the Winter’s New Moon
As we move towards the Winter Solstice and the return of Light, today, the moon has now progressed into astrological Capricorn and, as I like to say, stands in the aura (I usually consider this to be the time of approx. 2-3 days on either side of its actual phase) of the recent New Moon.
The moon waxed New in the astrological sign of fiery Sagittarius on Monday, December 14th. This winter moon and its timing near to the date of the Winter Solstice holds the promise of connectivity and reaching beyond your comfort zone as you seek new trails to “blaze” (no pun intended). This is the energy of lighting the match (the Fire element of Sagittarius) just before and to ensure that a warm and blazing fire can be started. This is the light that shines throughout the dark and draws to itself those seeking warmth, comfort and the transformative action that occurs when heat is applied.
Carry this energy forward as its flows into today’s moon waxing moon of astrological Capricorn. The fires of Sag’s light now benefits from the boundaries and strength of earthy Capricorn. Capricorn holds the power of the mythical Seagoat-a creature that is able to dive into the depths of the intuitive waters of our personal seas and scale the heights moving with the assurance of a goat on a craggy mountainside.
Today we can arise a little more assuredly from what we have left behind in the shadows and the dark. Today we carry the lantern of new light, burgeoning towards fullness. Today we walk with assurance knowing that the renewing energy and hope that is the heart of the Winter Solstice will not falter as we strive towards the heights of our own personal solstice transformation.
Today we stand in the aura and afterglow of a New Moon of fire’s active will and feel its palpable presence in the manifest strength of our being standing in the promise of light anew.
