New Moon in Capricorn ☾ Foundations for Harmony
As we define for ourselves the lives we know we are capable of living, we have had to detach from old systems and make room for new ones. Yet in rebirth comes obstacles to teach us discernment, discipline, boundary, expansion, limitation and refinement. The stage has been set for great change, yet now we must create and own our changes. There is massive opportunity to not only take a stand and claim our power, but to do this in a new way. As the patriarchy dies, so must it's patterns, systems and all of our attachments to it, both in shadow, in light and as a collective. As these old ways destruct, we must rise up and redesign what is to become the next.
Our old reactions and fear-based projections, protections and victimhood won't work for us now, anymore than the dulled blades of the weapons used by our ailing opponents will. Once a system fails, we cannot build a new successful one in its mirror. We must create a fresh recipe. So we must ask ourselves, what do we want and how do we want it? We must also be willing to communicate these needs and trust that in this different landscape, more possibilites for response, integration and reconstruction exist than from our past experience.
Innovation as an intention makes great strides here. Forming new alliances, reaching out, bridging gaps, and making connections of all sorts is amplified. The old outworn blaming, shaming and finger-pointing shows itself as part of the wound, not the solution. Setting boundaries in a firm but loving way activates the new energies, awaiting to bloom. Things can actually change here. It is safe to trust ourselves in our deepest knowing, our hearts desires for justice and in our efforts to build the community we've longed for, for lifetimes.
We have arrived and the universe can fully support us in our attempts at building a truly holistic human experience. We must lean in and listen. We must call out to those riding the wave with us. Instead of holding tight to assumptions, judgements and old expectations, let us speak our peace and allow for this new world to become, choosing to leave our suffering behind as we embrace our truth, our power, our authority, our right to be here fully and to design and live within a system of our own magic, not someone else's projection of it.
