New Moon in Capricorn: Claiming Space

This New Moon in scrappy, hardworking Capricorn has me thinking about claiming space. The energy calls for us to not shrink from doing what needs to be done because we are the ones that have to do it.

Over the past few months, the foundations of my life have significantly shifted. The plans I had for myself early in 2023 quickly and thoroughly fell through leaving me scrambling trying to figure out how I was going to keep doing the work I am called to do. But not only that, I had to figure out what I was going to do to keep the lights on and food in the fridge. It got pretty dark there for a minute.

But when I was at my darkest moments, my Ancestors and Spirit Guides were exuberantly optimistic. They assured me, and continue to assure me, that I am on the right path. That they are watching over me and that they have big plans for me.

These are certainly plans that I can't see right now. I feel I am moving back from the brink of financial disaster but what about all the work I need to do? How the hell can we even begin to talk about life sentence reform when our legislature is currently banning the public from being able to witness their sessions? How can we address the ongoing horror of being caged in a CoreCivic facility when they are busy planning new (probably) privately run facilities for kids? While I'm fighting to keep food in my fridge, I'm failing the people who are looking to me for support and answers. I feel overwhelmed and inadequate.

But the energy of this New Moon is to dig in and fight back. So while very little has gone the way I wanted in 2023, I don't have the luxury of feeling defeated. Somehow, I will have to find the space and inspiration to take up the work again. One thing that has kept me going is that I'm not in this by myself. While I have been preoccupied, others have been working. It's now time for me to get back in.

While I am tempted to shrink and disappear into a defeated shell, now is not the time. Now is the time to know that I have a place in envisioning solutions and building a new future. Now is the time to take up space and find my place in the work.
