Harness the energy of the New Moon in Capricorn, regardless of your sign, with these cosmic tips:
Strengthen bonds with your father
Spend some quality time with dear old dad. Being with your male role model will be healing and inspiring. If this is far easier said than done i.e. you don’t get along this is the perfect time to extend the olive branch and mend rifts. You’ll be surprised at how receptive he is. If your father is no longer around do something to honour his memory by visiting a place you both used to frequent, cooking his favourite meal or listening to his cherished tunes. It’s also a good time to revel in the company of father figures.
Take a hike!
The astrological symbol for Capricorn is the Goat. Blessed with fortitude and perseverance there isn’t a mountain they can’t climb literally or metaphorically. Before I move on to the metaphorically challenging stuff pushing yourself physically, apart from being good exercise, will create a more positive mindset. The most obvious activity is to climb a mountain or go for an outdoor trek of sorts.
Above and beyond
Think you can’t try any harder or do any better? You can! Draw on all of your perceived ‘failures’ (in the wise words of my third grade teacher “mistakes are friends because they teach you lessons”) and use them to make improvements. Recognising your limitations is also an important key to success. With the patience and determination Capricorn’s New moon energy instills you’re certain to make significant progress and, this is the day to launch!
Begin or expand your crystal collection
As an earth sign and the Goat Capricorns rule mountains, many of which include Mother Nature’s hidden treasures. Crystals are the perfect way of connecting to the earth’s energy. Balance, nurture, heal, focus and revive with a little crystal know-how. If you’ve been meaning to start, add to your existing collection or brush up on your knowledge (The Crystal Bible is an excellent go to guide) the New Moon is the perfect time to do so.
It’s no secret that Capricorns love the finer things in life and, thankfully, are hard working. A lesser-known quality is that many are great believers in manifesting. (Google the story about how Capricorn Jim Carey wrote himself a $10 million dollar check for “acting services rendered”, post-dated it 10 years and kept it in his wallet). Get acquainted with the laws of attraction and make your goals quantifiable by writing down specific goals, amounts and dates. Create a manifestation board, visualise the positive outcome you wish to achieve and for extra impact read a written statement out loud each morning and night before you go to bed.
Refine your image
Capricorn is, among other things, the sign associated with image. Even if you don’t give two hoots about what others think (hello, Aquarians and Scorpios) putting your best foot forward and sprucing your look will never hurt. Create or hone your signature style, own it and work it – dressing for success doesn’t mean jumping through hoops or dancing to the beat of someone else’s drum. Also think about the impression your posture, attitude, handshake grip, eye contact and smile conveys. Put some thought into how you come across to others by smoothing out your rougher points and capitalising on your finer qualities.
Okay, so you’re an avid recycler, you try not to waste water and rarely leave lights on unnecessarily. What more can you do? Lots! Use the fresh, enthusiastic vibes of the New Moon in this earthiest of signs to mark the beginning of ‘going green’. Invest in household structures and items like solar panels, switch to LED lighting and promote sustainability by creating a compost or worm farm. Investigate and become well acquainted with websites, books and blogs on climate change and how to do your part in reducing your carbon footprint even further. Every little bit helps!
