Claiming Your Power: December 21, 2014 – New Moon in Capricorn

It is time for you to claim your power, accept responsibility as a leader in some area of your life or in your profession or some field of knowledge. This New Moon in Capricorn at the Winter Solstice is a message to us all about self-knowledge, self-confidence, self-control and sovereignty. The Sabian Symbol for this lunation is Capricorn 1An Indian Chief Demanding Recognition.

Native Americans are the original people of the continent we know as North America. They are the First Nation. They occupied the land, lived throughout it and were in charge of their lives and themselves. They were powerful. This is sovereignty. This is what we are being called to understand and undertake in this New Moon in Capricorn at Winter Solstice.

The chief of a tribe was extremely powerful. He claimed his leadership. He established his authority. He determined where and how everyone would live. He protected and provided for the tribe through his leadership. The tribe acknowledged his leadership and showed him the respect of a leader.

Jesus Christ was a leader. He claimed his position as leader and accepted the demands of leadership, which were heavy. His crucifixion was a direct result of claiming his power. He knew claiming his position would bring intense results for him and he did not waver from what he felt were his responsibilities.

Your Call To Leadership

This lunation calls you to acknowledge you are called to be a leader in something (maybe more than one thing) in your life. You are called to be a success and can be a success but first you must stand up and claim your power.

You can no longer allow someone’s jealous blather and gossip to affect your path. There will always be jealous backbiting people who do not want you to succeed and they use low energy tactics to try to distract you from your path and knock you off-track. Stay focused on your goal(s) and make such people ineffective by removing them from your mind and heart. You have a purpose in this life.

Keep The Bomb Squad On Standby

Avoid people who tell you that you cannot do something or cannot be a success. I can think of three people in my life who have said that to me and all three are now left in my dust. I succeeded because their assurance that I would fail at achieving my goal or achieving in the time period in which I wanted it simply spurred me on because I saw that they were simply attempting to manipulate me. Pluto in Capricorn is revealing to many of us that there are people who do not want to share power or recognition; who want to prevent others from being successful; who want others to live at a pace they determine; who want to kill people’s dreams while pretending they are being helpful.

Uranus in Aries is at Aries 13An Unexploded Bomb Reveals An Unsuccessful Social Protest. Life has been very stressful since Uranus entered Aries and the Uranus/Pluto Square has been in effect. Unpredictable explosions and confrontations have made us all very tired and very distressed. We live on high alert. There is a heavy feeling of pressure. The pressure happening here is the pressure to stand up and claim leadership and to do so responsibly and moderately. It is important to be a good leader who does not abuse power and who knows how to use power to bring justice and peace.

Beware of secret deceptions by others who want to undermine or destroy your leadership or position of authority in some area. They will appear to be “helpful” or “interested” and you must be wise and not allow them to deceive you with flattering words meant to deceive. Be careful with whom you partner at this time. Your new “partner” can be someone who simply wants to get close to you and destroy your work from the inside out.

Keep the bomb squad on alert to suspicious situations and people. Avoid whatever and whoever does not feel right in your soul, at any time, no matter how “silly” it may seem.

Even more interesting is that in the next 30 days you may well learn about specific people in your life who have been using social means (social media, internet forums, enlisting “spies”, for example) to gossip about and malign you out of jealousy, resentment and anger. However, they will succeed only in damaging themselves by showing the darkness and destructive nature (Pluto) as well as ruthlessness (Pluto) in  the way they conduct business (Capricorn) or in some way attempt to hold onto power and status quo (Capricorn).

Self Care

Like a crab in is shell, take care of and protect yourself.  Do not allow anyone inside your shell if you do not want them there. Remember, you are sovereign and in charge. Guard your spiritual and physical health.

  • Sleep at least 8 hours per night,
  • Eat 3 meals and 3 snacks a day,
  • Drink lots of water
  • Set aside time to focus and work on your goal for a set time each day this next month before the New Moon in Aquarius.
  • Meditate or pray daily in the morning before you begin your day
  • Avoid partnership discussions and decisions until at least the New Moon in Aquarius

Claim your leadership and do not back down from it, even when people are revealed to be creating little “bombs” to attempt to unseat you or knock you off the path.

Never negotiate with terrorists and always maintain your integrity!

Blessings and success be upon you!
