New Moon in Capricorn
January 11, 2013 1:43 pm CDT
Capricorn rules the skin, the bones, and the teeth, giving structure to the human body. The Sun is in Capricorn as we begin our new year. It always is. Today the New Moon saddles up to the Sun and joins in this massive influence of Capricorn energy. This powerful combination creates a desire for most of us to initiate some new structure in our lives for 2013. We set goals, try new resolutions, clean out closets, and attempt to recreate our reality. Capricorn’s desire for structure comes from a couple of areas, fear of stagnation and fear of chaos.
It is the archetype of Capricorn that provides structure in the office, in the community, in the armed forces, and in the government. And it’s not easy to agree on structures because each of us creates our own reality. For any two people to agree on workable structure is a small miracle. Somebody has to set the rules...it’s usually the archetype of Capricorn at work.
We all live within structure. As we live within the framework of nature, i.e. as long as we are in physical bodies, we react to circumstances and make human choices and in doing so we create our reality. And this is grown up work! Frivolous is set aside. Winter is here, and in every life time there will be a periods of winter. Discipline must be learned. There are great bridges to cross. Finding ourselves periodically in a state of chaos or stagnation, we sit our grown-up selves down, and we restructure our lives. And we usually cross these great bridges without assistance for who can assist? It can be precarious. It requires single focus.
We conquer the lower self.
As we learn discipline we become the disciple.
We don’t look over our shoulder to see how anyone else is crossing.
This is our time.
Without a doubt.
