Happy (astrological) New Year! Today marks the new moon in Capricorn, a grounded and practical sign with major planning-and-execution mojo. While up to this point in 2018 many have been reflecting on the past and planning out how to best move forward into the future, now is the time to fully embrace those plans and put things into action. In so doing, Capricorn counsels us to put in any necessary work up front so that we may manifest our best possible outcomes in the end.
A restructuring occurred in 2017, collectively and in many cases, individually. It was a year of digging through the muck, gathering those things that didn’t serve, and releasing each of them as the year wore on. And wear on it did. Old stories, victim mentalities, damaging relationships and patterns, and disparaging self-talk all presented themselves – and then in many cases, thankfully fell by the wayside, leaving new and fertile ground ready for a fresh influx of positive thought, increased divinity, and unlimited abundance.
Welcome to 2018. While before we were tilling the soil in preparation for a new crop of manifestation, it’s now time to sow the seeds that will get us through the rest of the year. Things happened quickly in 2017 and during the first part of this month, but they’re about to escalate in speed.
What do you really want to accomplish this year? Is there a goal that you’ve been inching toward, or is there one that’s just lingering in the distance? Is there a project that you’ve been working on for awhile but that hasn’t taken the desired course? Is there something that you’ve been putting off but that would make your life so much easier, healthier, or happier?
Major strides can be made right now toward anything that you desire, but you have to hone in on what it is that you desire. Be as specific and as detailed as you can possibly be. Anything that you want to manifest should be backed up on paper. Make yourself accountable down the line. And be old-fashioned about it – manifestation takes root more easily when pencil is put to paper rather than when fingers are put to a keyboard.
So make that list. Open – and start funding – that savings account. Plan that wedding, reunion, or birthday celebration. Harness the new moon Capricorn energy over the next few days to map out all of the practical details of whatever you’re hoping to accomplish in 2018. Because once the practical details are out of the way and the plan is in motion, you can use your time to blissfully create all of the poetry that you desire – within the comfortable and well defined boundaries that you’ve already established for yourself.
While you’re at it, enjoy a lovely and fulfilling 2018. Because this year is all about new stories, empowered mentalities, supportive relationships, healthy patterns, and positive self-talk.
