The New Moon is in Capricorn today.
It’s the first New Moon of 2021 and the perfect time to set intentions aligned to the traditional calendar year.
If, like me, you graciously gave yourself the space to have a slow start to the year instead of forcing the creation of New Year’s Resolutions, now might be the time think about what you’d like to manifest in 2021.
This New Moon asks us to get clear on what our goals are and to create practical plans in order to reach them, but it’s also a time to be aware of our emotions.
In her book, Lunar Living, Kirsty Gallagher reminds us that this is a time to turn the ‘why’ into a ‘what’.
If things aren’t exactly as we hoped they would be, instead of asking ourselves ‘Why is this happening to me?’, this is the perfect time to switch it around and ask, ‘What can I learn from this?’.
Continuing with the theme of embracing what is, now is the time to refrain from struggling against the things we believe aren’t working in our favour, and instead look for the positives we can find in any situation we’re currently facing.
Where in your life can you apply the question of ‘What can I learn from this?’
For me, I’m learning that although I spent a lot of last year doing healing work and exploring new ways in which I can reduce the anxiety I feel, I must remember that the tools I added to my repertoire are there to be used, and I must practice applying them to new, potentially triggering, situations as and when they arise.
