I am posting much later than I usually do so whatever magickal energies (which was for careers) have past by... I am experiencing more snowy weather tonight but I appreciate the warm, comfortable
house I am in and am thankful for that. Also that we still have electricity... Never miss opportunities to tell the Goddess thank you even for the small things that you may not realize you have. I have tried to make a habit of thanking the Goddess for at least one thing everyday - even on the really bad days.
Balsamic Moon Phase
The end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
Keywords for the Balsamic phase are: transition, release, transformation, renewal, purity. It is the phase in a cycle when you must let go of everything you have been working on that does not deal with current cycle issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new. Trust in renewal. It is important to separate from others now so that you can clear the intellect of negativity. LET GO. Become still and meditate.
Moon in Capricorn - Cardinal Earth Sign - Keyword Description - "I permit"
A moon transit in the Sign of Capricorn concerns leadership issues, security, responsibilities, the need to be recognized, the desire to create environments, a time to take care of business and dealing with alternative healing for your body and intensification of your powers of concentration.
After Sagittarius' expansiveness, you may now feel contraction of energies and a time to pay attention to your needs for security, duties, obligations, drives, and ambitions. It's a good time for setting goals - and since the New Moon is approaching in a few days, you might want to start making the list of goals
for the next lunar cycle. Be careful to avoid insensitivity to others and stay out of negative and pessimistic mind sets that will only drag you down. Take this moon transit to deal with your material plane, especially if you have neglected it too long. Do non-traditional healing as Capricorn is the sign of the medicine woman.
