13* Capricorn New Moon

13* Capricorn New Moon

By Tara Sutphen

13* Capricorn New Moon with partial eclipse (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating January 4, 2011. This Capricorn New Moon is about clarity. What’s on your mind that you can speak directly and clearly, with a level head. Capricorn is about calculation, capability and proficiency. It’s not about what you’d like to do, it’s about what you can and will do. How you achieve in the world and where you belong. There is no fanciful dancing in sugar fluff fields when Capricorn is in charge. And this moon is about speaking what you need and why you need it. It’s not about what your family needs, lovers want or communicating with other people. It’s about “you” and what you possess in daily abilities and survival instinct. Taking the time to learn who you are in the world and making a better place for yourself. You have a pretty good idea what hasn’t worked in the past and must be assessed. This is grounded thought and speaking, not fanciful ideas on flitting from job to job, or changing careers every ten minutes. How do you secure your life, making money and managing time. What are your upcoming plans on a very mundane and daily level. What is your role in your job or career. What are your skills. It can be as easy as cooperation, organizing or having a strong energy current. Sometimes we try to do everything and we can’t figure what is our cleverness or uniqueness. We can be blind to what we excel in and recognizing ability.

Your mind may shift from clear thought to a next sequence of escape and self sabotage. Are you in an anxious or fretful state, not remembering how to get from A to B to C. Do you write out lists and decisions, do you talk over game plan with friends or family. Are you someone who thinks of a schedule and can carry it out or do you go into a spin of what to do and why. Trouble with your tasks at hand, not being able to focus can mean you are spending too much time multi-tasking, not relaxing, not sleeping, not getting enough nutrition, not following through on details, excess weight, stagnation or boredom. Unless you have been physically ill, and need to organize your time to best heal. Do you start projects but can’t finish or witness someone close to you experiencing continual ungrounded behavior and habits.

Getting your thoughts straight, priorities on track, and your voice and speaking ability clearly stating your necessities and creating life in your home and work space. Every day should be productive on some level. You ate nutritionally, you spoke well, you moved your body around, or you smiled. You took time to recognize your abilities, they can stem from handiness to mastery.

Focusing is one of the ways to gain a clearer perspective. Becoming thoughtful rather than obsessive, responsive rather than heedless, rational rather than reactive – allowing space for thought and perseverance.

“Real life is, to most men, a long second-best, a perpetual compromise between the ideal and the possible; but the world of pure reason knows no compromise, no practical limitations, no barrier to the creative activity.”

~Bertrand Russell (English Logician and Philosopher 1872-1970)
