RITUAL FOR THE CAPRICORN NEW MOON
The Capricorn New Moon (Dec. 28, 10:53 p.m.PST) initiates a new cycle for your work, self-esteem and higher calling. Yet due to retrograde Mercury, it’s wise to take things slowly now and review and integrate the past rather than trying to leap into something new. Save that for the second half of January.
This is, however, a good time to activate your Fame gua – the area of your home directly opposite your front entry. Add some red or fiery elements to this area, or a symbol of the work for which you’d like to become known. Then, perform this ritual as near to the New Moon as possible.
You will need: Access to a computer, or pen and paper, and a red candle.
Being recognized for your accomplishments, talents or opinions can bring up insecurities. The New Moon period that covers the next month is about putting yourself out there despite any fears. You may want to start on a small scale. At the New Moon, commit to doing one of the following:
* Write a letter to the editor of your local paper about a timely issue that matters to you. Be bolder than usual in the way you express yourself.
* Do a blog or Facebook post, expressing a potentially controversial opinion about something, or tooting your own horn in some way.
* Approach an authority figure about hiring you, or buying, publicizing or representing your work. Express confidence in your abilities.
At the New Moon, light a red candle and affirm your courageous next step, along with the results you’d like to see in terms of acknowledgement and recognition. Then, follow through, do what’s required to manifest your intentions, and see what happens. And be sure to watch the video below, to see how one couple transformed their Fame gua. Soon after making these changes, the husband got a big promotion, and the wife saw her photographs published in both local and international magazines and books!
