This is a powerful NewMoon, charging us up and calling for a bright, light meditation. January 16th’s New Moon sums up the last five months since August’s Solar Eclipse, and presents a Learning Triangle – an opportunity for change and growth. Capricorn shines on stability, leadership, and the desire to open up emotionally. This is a good time to connect more deeply with ourselves and others to open emotionally. With Venus present, family and relationships flow with ease, but there is a push to open for growth. Mars lends us courage and passion to do so. This is a time of renewal and ease, as we are connected to our intuition and imagination – ensure you stay grounded for alignment on your journey.
New Moon Meditation
If you’d like to get comfortable in your meditation space, we will begin by closing our eyes and settling into our body. If you have a gentle, nurturing essential oil that can be applied to the skin, take a few drops in your palms, rub them together and inhale about five times slowly. Relaxing your palms on your lap, bring the awareness of your breath down to the Root Chakra, and grounding by imagining a golden cord or roots reaching into the earth. Take time to breathe and deepen this connection.
We will continue by allowing our belly to expand with breath and relax with exhale. As you continue filling your belly, feeling your rib cage expanding with breath, slowly relaxing as you exhale. Continue with this steady breath.
Continue with this breath, bringing your awareness to your Heart Chakra. With your inhale see a soft rose light shining into your Back Heart Chakra with every breath. Allow this light to sit with you, and flow out through your Front Heart Chakra.
Continue for 10 minutes, or longer to really deepen your experience. When you are ready, consider the following. You are welcome to journal – it’s a nice way to see your progression.
- What were you working on during August 2017 around the Solar Eclipse?
- What were your big goals, and where do you stand with them now?
- What do you want to learn and what changes are you making? Subconsciously has anything shifted?
- Are you creating enough time to deeply connect to your higher-self? Through this, we more deeply connect with others.
- What changes would you like to see in your home-life? Family? Relationships?
Return to your breath for 10 minutes with your eyes closed to close your meditation. Allow any thoughts, inspiration to flow.
