If you have ever observed a mountain goat you will see that it moves methodically and skilfully never giving up no matter the climate or how difficult the climb to the top of the mountain may be.
The mountain goat is the symbol for Capricorns, who are known to be hard working, practical and ambitious.
Despite being born under a certain sun sign, we have a little of each of the 12 zodiac qualities within us and as we bring in 2014, the earth is going to be full of Capricorn energy.
January 1 marks the first Super Moon of 2014 which falls in Capricorn, giving the start of the new year a grounded, earthy and practical energy.
Super moon’s are rare and occur when the moon is closer to the earth than usual. January 1st will be a new moon so while the moon will not be visible, it will still be closer than usual.
In astrology, super new moons are much stronger and exert their effects much more than a regular new moon.
For centuries, new moons have signified new growth periods. A time where new projects, new ideas and new adventures can take place. A new moon is the perfect time to plant a seed.
Before the new can be brought in however, the old has to be cleared out and December 2013 has been a month of ‘clearing out’ to make way for the bold, fresh start that 2014 brings.
Because this super moon falls in Capricorn, the universe is urging us to move slowly and methodically but also to reach higher, stretch our ambitious and work hard to reach our goals- just like the little mountain goat.
No matter what happened for you in 2013, there is a new cycle about to begin and this Super Moon will help you clear your plate and start fresh.
In order to maximise the amazing energy of this super moon, write down some goals for the new year but understand that they will be reached step by step (remember this is Capricorn energy). Meditate, release stagnant thoughts, clear out all the old and tap in to your core to get grounded.
Know that mother earth is supporting you to clear out stuck energy to ensure you can climb to the top of your mountain in 2014.
