New Moon in Capricorn (and Ritual)

December 27th, 2008 by Voxx

The New Moon in Capricorn at 6º08″ Degrees will happen early this morning at 1:22 am, PST (4:22 pm, EST).

The Meaning of The New Moon: The New Moon is the beginning of the Waxing (growing) phase of the moon. This phase is best for starting projects, and attracting energy toward manifesting your desires for the next 14 days — that is, until the next Full Moon phase, which represents the next cycle of completion. (Learn more about the The Voxx Magickal Forum and check out the folder for New Moon Rituals.

The New Moon in Capricorn is one of the best for setting goals, initiating projects, and making a serious commitment toward manifesting your long-range plans.

Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, and both sign and planet are associated with the ideas of restriction, and discipline — both necessary in order to accomplish the greater things in life.

Adding additional force, the planet Mars also enters Capricorn today at 11:30 am PST (2:30 am EST), Mars lending a kick-ass energy which will enable us to actually fulfill our New Year’s resolutions! While Capricorn is the starting point for this new lunar phase, the energy will build, adding a positive sense of forward movement to all you attempt.

Procrastinate tomorrow! (lol) Right now, it’s time to get yourself in gear and start moving forward for once. Just because this energy is so powerful and positive, there’s a likelihood that you’ll expect results quickly — but, don’t get exasperated when this doesn’t happen. Just because you’re finally taking your life seriously doesn’t mean that everything can be magickally sorted out overnight. Have patience. That’s the ultimate Capricornian phrase. Chill out for heaven’s sake!

Planetary Aspects: Currently, there’s a powerful group of Planets in Capricorn — with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto ALL in this hard-working, focused sign.

Other Planetary Aspects: The Sun and Moon will conjunct Mars and Pluto in Capricorn at the time of the New Moon, which will pack a powerful punch to this new lunar phase. Along with challenging aspects to Venus and Neptune, we need to be aware that we may not be viewing reality clearly at the present time. Despite it all, this is a great time to to make serious plans for the future, as a quick reaping of rewards can start happening as soon as 4 weeks from now, at the time of the next Full Moon!

Global Effects of the New Moon in Capricorn: The Lunar/Saturn influence will no doubt be tough on weather patterns, and make us start paying attention to the damage we’re doing to the planet — not as punishment, but to guide us toward changing our patterns of planetary abuse.

Midsummer’s Nite

June 24th, 2008 by Voxx

I’m actually writing this on June 23rd — waiting to set out the silver bowl to collect the morning dew of Saint John’s Eve (Midsummer’s Eve).  I use the dew to concoct some very magickal potions and brews for the rest of the year.  It definitely works.  I’ll add a bit about Midsummer Legends to this post, when I can on an on-going basis.

LVX,

Total Lunar Eclipse in Pisces Tonight!

August 27th, 2007 by Voxx

bloodmoon 1Tonight’s eclipse will prove to be one of the most special in a long time. We’ll be seeing the longest total eclipse to happen in many years.

As far as Magick goes … may I suggest leaving any Magickal Rituals tonight to the more seasoned practitioners! Performing complex or unfocused Magick during such a powerful lunar phase can have unwarranted results, so be careful and plan your ritual in detail.  This is a particularly potent Full Moon as well, as Pisces rules the 12th House of the Zodiac, and is highly Karmic in nature.

Magickal Links that show the Astrological Chart for this Lunar Eclipse:

I’ll be adding more info and links soon! Check back.

Full Moon in Capricorn!

June 30th, 2007 by Voxx

hecate-blake.jpgThe Full Moon will occur at 6:49 PDT (9:49 EDT), and will be at 08:25 Degrees of Capricorn. No doubt you will feel especially emotional, as Capricorn is the exact opposite sign of Cancer, the sign which is ruled by the Moon. The sign of Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, and makes it a very intense time for all Moonchildren, in particular.

There is a great deal of craziness going on right now, with Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron all retrograde at the same time! So pretty much everything is up in the air — don’t try to hard to control things, as it’s impossible to get a handle on anything right now. The best you can do is to try to accept what’s going on in your life with the best attitude possible. Once Mercury goes direct again on July 9th, things will start settling down, once and for all.

Other Planets Affecting the Full Moon Energy: With Venus in Leo, you may find yourself taking things too personally, and amping the drama of your feelings — chill out! Save your acting for the stage — speaking of which, with Mercury in Cancer, you’ll no doubt be aware of how good your memory is getting. Write some poetry while you’re at it! Release your fears, and don’t let Capricorn’s uptight influence make you too bossy. Are you listening, President Bush? (He’s a Cancer, you know.)

The Positive Side: You can get in touch with your more disciplined side right now. It’s a good time to start any kind of regimen to increase your stamina and strength.

The Negative Side: You need to lighten up already! You may feel irritable, vulnerable, and angry right now — violence is definitely on the horizon, so keep your temper in check. Also, this placement is strong for the occurrence of earthquakes, as Capricorn is an earth sign, and rules mountains (and the little goat creatures that climb them).

Final Note: This is a very powerful Full Moon, so try to wake up early and meditate on the full level of energy that can be tapped and transmuted to your particular magickal purpose.

Capricorn Keywords for Focus: Structure, patience, thoroughness, goal-planning, and strategy.

Cancerian Keywords for Focus: Nourishment, security, appreciation and family.

Candle Ritual Info: Use the following colours, shapes, and items in your ritual for celebrating the Moon in Capricorn. All items should celebrate the sign the Moon is in, which is Capricorn.

Colours: Black and Indigo (for Capricorn).

Shapes: Crescents, 10-pointed stars.

Other Objects: Horns, crystal balls, black scrying mirrors.

Talismans: The Devil Card (Tarot/Capricorn), garnet, onyx, obsidian and/or any other black or indigo-colored stones.

Scents: Myrrh, Onycha, Cypress.

Herbs: Comfrey, Solomon’s Seal, Belladonna (poison), and Snowdrop.

Trees: Pine, Cypress, Yew, Spruce, and Holly.

Picture Info: “Hecate” by William Blake.
