“Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”
As the New Year begins we are reminded that life is always in a constant motion, moving forward with more determination and skill. Staying active, feeling motivated by life, and feeling content with the fact that we have made it another year. Letting go of the uncertainty of politics, and seeking our own truths. As we begin 2019, remember that everyone is fighting their own battles. Kindness goes a long way. Let’s ring in 2019 on a positive note. Manifest the good. Pay it forward.
RULING PLANET OF THE MONTH – CAPRICORN – FOCUS – AMBITION, STRUCTURE, RELIABLE AND STEADY.
SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN JAN 4, 2019 – understands the need to build, to climb, to achieve. Capricorn is known for tenacity and endurance, the hallmark of determination, leadership, and a willingness to do without. During this Solar Eclipse, Capricorn in opposition to Cancer, sign of the home, family, culture focuses of what is important, drawing out the need for family security while still maintaining its desire for structure. Thus Capricorn temporally becomes the government, the career, and laws as regulatory forces which shape our environment, giving us the opportunity to work within, rather from the ground up, one might say. This is a good period/month to establish rules and boundaries, while taking time out for those closest to us. Those born under Cancer, Libra, Aries and Capricorn are influenced greatly.
