New Moon eclipse in Capricorn
Connect with Ganesh
As this is the first New Moon of the year, it’s the right time to talk to the beautiful Hindu Elephant God Ganesh (pictured).
He’ll help you to start anything new and also to overcome any obstacles, so ask him to be by your side as we move into 2019.
Simply light a candle, gaze at an image of him and ask him to stay by your side.
Capricorn is all about planning. Use this time to have a think about what you want to achieve next year. Yes, I am all about planning and writing things down, because these are the main secrets to successful manifesting! Capricorn knows that you have to go slow and steady towards your goals, so check in and see how you’re doing with yours.
This is also a time to be very ambitious – very definite in your goals. Think about what you want to be known for. Capricorn is no slouch: it knows that hard work is the way to long-term goal achievement. Have you been thinking too rigidly? Use the New Moon in Capricorn to promise yourself you will replace rigid thinking with mature, tempered, strategic thinking. If you crave social status or recognition for what you do, this New Moon is the time to work on advancing yours, whatever that means to you. (No judgement.)
One thing to be aware of at this time is that the Capricorn energy (which liaises with the serious planet Saturn) can be rather cold. Use the season of goodwill around you now, and the New Moon in Capricorn energy, to show someone how much they mean to you. Make promises you intend to keep. Show someone you’re in it for the long haul.
Avoid being controlling, though. Capricorn is a very tough sign in many ways. And like every other sign, we all have it in our chart somewhere. If you know you have a tendency to be unbending, harness the Capricorn New Moon and make a plan for how to change that. No one likes to be controlled.
Establishing a new tradition at this time of the year is a wonderful thing to do, whether it’s related to Christmas or not. Thinking about your reputation, and working on it, is also worth doing now too. Thanking your boss, or your employees, is also recommended. These might feel like natural things to do at the end of the year, but the New Moon in Capricorn works so well with them, they’re doubly worth doing.
