As the New Moon graces us with its presence in the sign of Capricorn on January 11, it brings a unique blend of cosmic energies that promise new beginnings, fresh opportunities, and a chance to sculpt our aspirations into tangible realities. Capricorn, an earth sign ruled by Saturn, is associated with discipline, structure, and the gradual climb towards success. This New Moon invites us to set our intentions for the year ahead and lay the groundwork for our dreams to take root.
This New Moon is unusual because it is happening during a period in which the veils between the physical and spiritual realm is thinned. So what does this mean?
During this time period, ancestors, spirits, other entities can connect more easily with us – they seek to reach out to us in different ways, or we may become more aware of them. This thinning of the veils has been going on for thousands of years around this time of the year.
If you are very sensitive, you might feel this period strongly and be overwhelmed with emotions. This is a great period for healing and bringing in new patterns in your life to serve you well.
When we have the New Moon at the same time as the thinning of the veils, you have an easier connection to your spirit guides and other beings from the other realms that can help you create a new structure in your life as well as practices to connect more deeply with the Divine. It is a great time to use your spirit guides and ancestors as resources to uplift your life, and to create habits and patterns in your life that can nourish your spirit and your soul.
This is an excellent time to connect and release your emotions. With the New Moon and the thinning of the veils, old emotions might be rising up to surface. If you are someone very sensitive, you might feel overwhelmed by emotions. You could be feeling a rollercoaster of emotions. Old aspects might be coming to surface or you might simply feel emotional without knowing why. While this can be overwhelming and difficult at times, look to it as a gift so you can process – the more you release your emotions, the more space you make within.
This is a great time to journal, wake up early in the morning (4 am, 5 am) and practice Kundalini yoga, which will help you release stored emotions. While all yoga practices are wonderful, Kundalini yoga specifically will help you open up your chakras and release stored emotions.
Finally, during this time you might be experiencing more intense spiritual events, such as spirits visiting you from the other side, intense dreams or other experiences according to your unique sensitivity. If this occurs, remember to remain peaceful and not become overly attached to any of these. With the right practices and detachment you can protect yourself at all times.
