I am so late on this one. Technically the full moon in Capricorn was yesterday, but I was not able to put together anything about it until today. But hey, so much has happened that I have not blogged about at all (crazy work hours) that I kind of count getting anything out there a win!
I love talking about the moon cycle because it is so helpful when it comes to manifesting things out into the world. I am not working with many phases yet beyond the full moon and the new moon, but I know that as I work on divesting myself from the crazy system that I am a part of now and get to a place where I can honor these cycles better, I will be working with more phases than just those two. Checking in at the new moon to see where I want to focus my intention when it comes to my goals, seeing how the sign that the moon is in plays a part in that – that has actually been huge for my manifestation process this past year. Then following up on that intention with the full moon phase and seeing what needs to be let go of in order to make it to the end of the manifestation cycle, using the sign of the moon as a guide once again – really helpful for the process. A lot of times we have a goal in mind and we are working toward it but we don’t stop to think about whether or not we are doing something that might be hurting our chances of getting to the finish line. Reflecting back on that goal during the full moon phase and figuring out what is working and what is not is a great tool to help you meet your goals.
So what about the Capricorn part?
So we know we should be reflecting on our goals during this full moon, but what about the Capricorn part? How does that help us to reach our goals?
Capricorn energy has several aspects to it that can help with refining your goals and your pathway to realizing them. First is integrity: being true to your own nature and making sure that your public identity matches that nature. Basically, it means being true to yourself. Are you doing that through your process of meeting your goals? I know that sometimes I have a hard time hearing other people’s suggestions for what they are – just suggestions. I take them very much to heart and sometimes that makes me veer off of my path and into another lane. It can take me weeks to get myself back on track when that happens. Capricorn energy helps me realize that I have to stay true to myself with what I am doing.
The second part of Capricorn energy that helps us to meet our goals is not worrying about the approval of others. That concept is practically married to what I mentioned above, because sometimes if I ponder a suggestion from someone, I might try to implement it in order to gain their approval even though it does not fit with what I am trying to achieve. If we are worried about what others think about us we will be tossed around in the wind of other people’s suggestions and opinions. That is not a very comfortable place to be! A better idea is to consider the suggestion and the check in to see if implementing the idea would be in alignment with your highest and best – something that I am getting better about doing! If it is, then you should implement it. If it is not, then don’t feel guilty about not doing anything with the suggestion. It just doesn’t fit with what you are trying to accomplish.
