Well, here we are… New moons mean new beginnings, and this one is set to be extra powerful, given that it's the first New Moon of this most important year. 2021's premiere new moon peaks on the night of January 12 (or just after midnight on January 13, if you're on the east coast) and it’s the right time to conjure up a bit of magick. New Moon magick is dedicated to new ideas, new projects, feeling your personal strength and acting on your instincts…the time to cast off that which is no longer working and bringing in new beliefs and behaviors.
Those studying the cosmos saw the turbulence…some off balance, volatile energies near this New Moon. In the realm of the Goddess this energy was triggered by Eris, a dwarf planet but also the goddess of conflict and disharmony. It almost seemed inevitable that something like the events of January 6th played out all but guaranteeing that this year will be a year like no other. Collectively, we are waking up to the fact that if we are to survive there needs to be change. Abuse of the planet, division, violence and greed are no longer acceptable. Last month, the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter signified social change that will affect future generations and the peace that spirituals have waited eons for.
The sign of Capricorn gives a new moon a grounding influence-the time to reconnect
with our roots. Make no mistake, there will be change; the determined Capricorn sea goat will assure that with its sense of drive, determination, and discipline. That stubborn and steady goat offers no instant gratification here…just a patient, steady path to the new world. We will get there, speed bumps and all, but all in all this first new moon gives us hope that things will fall into place. Besides the opportunity to rebuild, the Capricorn moon ushers us into a revolution of consciousness. When we plant those metaphorical seeds, we honor the moon of the Maiden Goddess, whose magick is dedicated to the New Moon. By working with the moon’s phases in your life and magick, you’re invoking her lunar energy…Diana, Selene, Hecate and especially Lilith. Whichever goddess you are most in tune with, harness that power, channel your inner goddess, and focus your energy on capitalizing on the powerful force that is the New Moon.
May you be well. May you be safe. May you be the person that you choose to be.
