Capricorn New Moon – Setting Intentions

On January 6th, 2019, there will be a partial solar eclipse/New Moon in Capricorn. This is the day when the mystical “12 days after Christmas” or “Rauhnächte” end. The time between the years is over, the gap to the mystical realms widens again. This first New Moon of the new year is ideal to put some intentions out into the Universe for a magnificent year 2019!

Team Meeting in the Sign of Capricorn

The new moon constellation is settled directly between Saturn and Pluto and Mercury resides in Capricorn too.

Capricorn is known to be good at planning and organizing and business/career is a topic here. What are your dreams and what can you bring to the table? From there, what are your next steps? All the transformations from last year showed the idea of a path you could walk on. Now it’s time to pack your backpack wisely. Saturn adds some extra seriousness to the pot but smoothing energies are just around the corner. Mercury enhances the ability to put some logic into our planning and helps to communicate clearly which direction you have to go.

Sweet-Sour Side-Dish and Dessert of Choice

The energies at the beginning of this new year give us excited and optimistic feels. With all this new energy pouring in we could easily lose our mind which way to go. Neptun in Aries trine Mercury sends innovative and pioneering energy but with Mars in Aries square Mercury this could lead to over-impulsive decisions or just an overload of projects to run after. There are a lot of shiny new ideas but listen closely to the voice within, it tells you which ones are the diamonds you should go after. Neptune sextile Capricorn New Moon brings a lighter, sweeter note to the energy mix. We’re fueled from within, we just have to let it out purely. Also, Neptune gives us a boost in creativity & sensitivity which helps to create plans from within.

In this a-bit-of-everything mix, it’s important to clarify what is the fuel behind your goals. Is it personal growth or just the need to gather more material things? Is there a hole inside yourself that you just want to fill or is there something inside yourself which you want to bring to life? The world is in a critical state and we should overthink the status quo and ask ourselves what is REALLY important to us.

How to Work with the Energies

The energies around this New Moon bring a lot of fresh new winds and with a little bit of effort and structure you can fly high this year.

Off the mat: Practice gratitude. Even if you have it done already, again, practice gratitude. Let go of all grief, negativity and competition from last year and give thanks to every experience. See them as teachers. You are always at the right place at the right time doing the right thing. Then, work with these questions:

  • What are my dreams and wishes for the coming 12 months?
  • What is the intention behind every wish or dream? Which things truly resonate with the life I want to live and the person I want to be? And what is just stuff that’s not deeply needed? Go for the inner callings, not trends. Travel with light but important baggage.
  • What are my abilities and talents? How can they help me on my way? How can I nurture and expand them?
  • What are some new things I want to experience?
  • What are first mini-steps to make my dreams come true?

On the mat: The sign of Capricorn is associated with the knees but even more general with all the bigger joints in the body. Flexibility is the working field here. Find a balance here between flexibe but strong muscles that support you in the best way. Asanas like the warrior series are nice (they also give a lot of focus), trikonasana, side plank, tree pose, garudasana and stretches for the wrists.

Meditate. Create peace of mind before you fall into crazy planning. Remember you don’t have to set out the master plan that’s waterproof. The stillness of the mind bears a lot of answers. Get a clear vision that comes from within. This will show you the way. Trust in the process.

Happy New Year 2019

May this year be full of blessings. May this year be the year of change. Change towards more love, fun, togetherness, lust for life, adventure, friendship, equality and justice. I wish you all the best experience on your way and the energy to handle whatever the universe may serve you. The outlook is positive. Fall in love with yourself, with others, with life. Then stay there.

Happy New Year 2019!

Hari om, Namaste ❤
