some time with the sea goat's hermit moon
Blessings this New Moon in Capricorn! New Moons for me have always been The Hermit's domain. It's the perfect time to seek out the shadow- not always for work, we need rest too. It is in the shadow that we learn to tend to our light and know better how to preserve it for ourselves and our community's sustenance. With Mercury Rx in full force, the New Moon call for reflection only intensifies.
This New Moon in Capricorn you and I are looking to ourselves.
This is the long filling inhale before the jump off the cliff into 2017. For so many this had been a solar turn of tumult and uncertainty. We've been pushed, pulled, killed, hurt, torn apart, and still we are here. You are here. And our ancestors passed on are here with us. The infinity of the cycle can feel overwhelming- and sometimes make it a burden to always strive for the long view.
The New Moon provides space to heal from overwhelm. She allows us to sit with ourselves, cradled in the warm tangible darkness of our shadow, and rest. We can always return here for our protection. This is the space that cannot be breached.
