The Sun sailed into the zodiacal sign of Capricornus (more commonly known as Capricorn) on December 21, and was greeted by the Moon as she entered that sign as well, resulting in a Capricorn New Moon.What an auspicious beginning for the Sun’s journey through the sign of your birth!
So listen up, all you authors, creatives, & intuitives!
This Capricorn New Moon, who’s dark of the Moon rays we are all under until Tuesday night, December 23, represents the best time to plant your seed, whatever that seed may be.
Planting that seed will enable it, with a lot of nurturing, to blossom ultimately into writing that book, and/or creating anything you want to bring into manifestation!
Why do I say that? Because Capricorn is an earth sign ruled by the planet Saturn, and among its energies lie the capability to build the foundation upon which you can rest your ultimate, well-crafted success.
No one knows better than those who carry within Capricorn/Saturn energy how easily and often success is within your grasp! However, in order to accomplish your goals, you must build that solid foundation, add the walls, then the roof, and–voila!–you have your house!
Easy as pie, right?
Well, not always…it depends on whether you express your archetypal Capricorn/Saturn energies negatively or positively!
Often those who carry Saturnine energy within bear the mark of people who’ve been forced to parent themselves at an early age, regardless of the reason why. Therefore, they’ve learned to rely only on themselves to make judgments about what is right, wrong, good, or bad.
Others may have experienced early environments where they were restricted in their capability to express, be it verbally/mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Over time, however, this restriction becomes internalized and the individual no longer identifies it with an outside authority figure, but rather believes it to be their natural, internal nature.
Since Mercury is also in the sign of Capricorn from December 18, 2014 until January 6, 2015, you may be doubly less than forgiving of your perceived imperfections…
Mercury’s energy represents our intellect and how we communicate what we desire most to express. In the sign of Capricorn, we may tend to self-censor, and be judgmental, critical, or perfectionist.
Sweeping aside this often “learned” self-judgment can happen once we understand the child within, and that she deserves to be loved, honored and listened to, no matter what…
Identifying your internalized parental voice–whether it hails from a mother, father, grandparent, teacher, cleric, judge, or anyone else–is an important step in learning to express the authentic you!
Move From Authoritarian Parent to Inner Child
I always say there is no judgment in archetypes–they simply are the energies present in us all. It’s these archetypal energies which form the common bond between humans who span the globe, regardless of race, gender, religion, politics, yada, yada, yada…
Some of us carry Capricorn/Saturn energy to a greater degree than others. And Saturn/Capricorn is a hard energy because its seeks the accomplishment of success at all costs.
It’s the energy within that drives one to burn the midnight oil, to toil until the wee hours in order to get the job done–and done right! Capricorn/Saturn energy tolerates no slackers!
Terrific energy if one is building an empire–and many with strong Capricorn/Saturn energy have done just that!–but not so great when it comes to self-nurturing…
The key lies in Capricorn’s opposite zodiac polarity: Cancer! Cancer is the sign of the mother, sensitivity, compassion, roots, family, tradition, and security. What those born under the sign of Capricorn–or who possess a preponderance of heavy Saturnine energy–need most is nurturing.
We all possess an inner child, but the Capricorn/Saturn archetype is that of the adult, the parental figure, the authority! How difficult is it to nurture yourself when you’re always trying to be the grownup?
It’s well known that Capricorn/Saturnine people are old when they’re young, and grow younger as they age. This is because their concern with success when they’re young–and often about doing things the right way–overrides their need to self-nurture.
So listen up, Capricorns! Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
Under this Capricorn New Moon energy that kicks off the duration of the Sun’s journey through your Saturnine archetypal sign, why not treat yourself as you would a child? Why not talk to your inner child–ask her what she wants, what she needs–reach out to her and let her speak!
Through her, you just might access your higher self, your authentic voice, and get in touch with the real you!
The real you is the one who can help integrate the part of you that understands the early bird gets the worm, and hard work results in success, with the part of you who needs unconditional love–now and always!
Pink’s song and video Pretty Pretty Please best illustrate this point:
Forgive me, those of you who may feel it’s a bit harsh. Capricorn energy, when it’s deeply internalized and stems from inner judgment, often isquite harsh, and that’s what this video points out…
…the song & video, however, aim to share a deeply moving message to those of us who are uber-hard on ourselves. And often at the expense of our sensitive inner child who needs–more than anything–unconditional love and approval…enjoy, and as my Capricorn mother always says: Do something nice for yourself–today and everyday!” (P.S. Please forgive the commercial–it’s worth the wait!)
