Big Goals, Which Way?
Right now, this New Moon in Capricorn starts the lunar cycle that will bring on one of the most major moons of the year in two weeks time – a full moon supermoon blue moon total lunar eclipse on the 31st! Notice the current themes around this week’s New Moon as they are likely to build and reach a climax in a fortnight. With the New Moon being in Capricorn, one of the key themes of this lunar cycle is understanding what is truly needed to reach your most desired goals.
Is anything in your life leaving you feeling burdened, depressed or bone-tired? Do you have a big decision to make or goal to reach that feels as big as climbing Mt Everest? This New Moon helps you gauge how achievable your goal really is and what resources you’ll need (e.g. how much time, money or extra study etc). For some people, it’s deeply fulfilling to climb Everest. For others, no matter how much they follow that path, it has an empty frustrating feeling.
Are the decisions you’re making now heading you in the right direction? Perhaps you discover Mt Everest is out, but another goal will bring the ultimate fulfilment. Sometimes we have to try pieces in a jigsaw that isn’t our own so we can work out what our own authentic jigsaw is, the one we’re in awe of when it starts showing its image. The New Moon helps you follow your own success, not an accidental following of another success.
At this New Moon life plonks the bare facts on the table, which at times might feel a bit harsh. There’s likely to be a hard choice to make, one that even feels like a no-win, in that every option requires moving through a fear-hurdle. See whether life confirms your decisions at the major supermoon in two weeks, or gives you a new part of the puzzle to consider. It’s not a time to give up but to confront fears! If you see failure, it’s a time to learn the lessons, then persist with your path.
