Happy New Magical & Wise 2014!!!
Happy New Moon Activation – of new beginnings and wonder-full new chapters in your life!!!
I hope you have taken the time to reflect on + savour your 2013 accomplishments. Although it may seem that the year has gone by in a heartbeat, I promise you if you sat down to think of your 2-3 major undertakings, or realizations, of the past 12 months, you will be filled with gratitude and joy as to how far you’ve come. Huge Congratulations to YOU on everything you have moved from procrastination to creation, shifted from discomfort to healing in your life, and integrated with gratitude!!!
A New Year is filled with magical anticipation & brilliant potential when we allow the wonder to unfold, just as we would allow a friend or a loved one to gift us with appreciation just for being YOU – just for being in their life and being exactly as YOU ARE. Thank YOU for being in my life in 2013! I rejoice in staying connected with YOU in 2014 and beyond!!!
When gratitude becomes our core spiritual practice, we will be surprised at how much abundance & joy the universe wants to reward us & bless us with.
We are starting the New Year with a powerful New Moon in Capricorn, the sign of maturity, toughness & integrity. With 5 celestial players in this cold winter sign (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto), we may foresee that the winter ahead in the Northern Hemisphere will be a surprisingly chilly & frosty one, with severe extremes in weather and temperatures. This may be at least until the Full Moon (next 2 weeks) and then the new lunar cycle start (4 weeks). Hope you have weathered the winter/ice storm of 2013 safely, wherever you are!!! May you be always surrounded with warmth & safety!!!
Saturn, the Lord of Time & Karma, and the Great Architect & Builder, is overseeing the activities of the planets in Capricorn at this time. It implores us to schedule and commit to energy investments & goals that really matter in order to create a healthy foundation and sustainable structure in our life. Our Inner Saturn will always point out an area of our life where a lack of self-discipline and/or strategic planning will lead to lack of abundance, discontent, frustration, and burnout. The most effective way to appease your inner authority is to ask, answer for yourself, and then proactively take action in those areas of your life that require change and more solid structure:
1) Where in my life am I called to take greater personal responsibility for my happiness and success (e.g. relationships, work, health)?
2) What area of my life is most urgently asking for a healthy & productive change NOW? Or simply ask yourself: What needs to change NOW?
3) Where in my life must I learn to more consistently tap into available reserves of inner strength, and be more self-sufficient and faithful?
4) What actions taken in 2013 have not yielded satisfying results for me that I can now joyfully let go of?
Saturn favors tradition and conservative/calculated approach. However, with the current dynamic Cardinal Activation (Cardinal Grand Cross of several planets in cardinal signs), we are being encouraged to take charge of our life TODAY so as to avoid attracting a crisis. Long-term procrastination = healing crisis. The healing crisis is not necessary though if we are consistently listening to our inner wisdom, and tuning into our body and our soul’s needs.
The year starts with a very dynamic Mars + Uranus + Pluto activation. Some may call it a battle for power. I call it Reclaiming Your Inner Authority & Inner Power. If we have given our power away to other people in our life, we will be tested and pushed to our limits. Who has power over you? Is it your boss, your partner, or your mother? Is it God or the Universal Manager? The Universe, our co-creative partner, always has our highest good in mind – not our short-term good, but our long-term good, as pre-determined by our prebirth agreements with ourselves, God, and other key players in our life (a.k.a. our soul contracts). I hope it helps to remember that our highest good is not determined by anyone else but our own SOUL & HIGHER SELF.
Capricorn is the Elder & the Hermit of the zodiac – the Wise One – conservative, serious, and dutiful. When we are accessing and learning from this cosmic archetype, we are tuning into a pattern of energy that is about developing appreciation for: inner state of solitude, truth-saying, patience, and self-discipline. In the tangible realm of physical world, the Capricorn represents for us the law & order of principles & standards in our life and society. It also rules the skeleton/support system in our body – our teeth, bones and knees. Are we allowing enough support in our life? Do we have a stable support system that we can depend on?
It is about doing the work that is in alignment only with our personal values, with integrity, self-respect and iron will. Remaining in one’s integrity, regardless of whether one’s effort is received with an applause or criticism. No matter the amount of social approval, appreciation, praise, or criticism, disapproval, and indifference.
Why? For the sake of finding the point of inner approval & inner authority, until the dream is put into motion and made into a visible reality, with competence, efficiency and resilient persistence.
As serious and unattached to other’s emotional reactions as it may externally appear, the Capricorn’s focus on the endpoint, and climbing its peak of achievement and recognition, is relentless.
May you relentlessly AND wisely embrace your dreams, and make your dreams reality in 2014 + beyond!
Wishing you and your loved ones a Safe, Happy & Most Harmonious & Prosperous 2014!!!
