Using the New/Full moon to Create More Self Awareness

Updated: Dec 27, 2019

I love using the knowledge of astrology to bring more awareness to my life.

I view astrology as a mirror of the energies happening here on Earth.

I've heard people say they think the reason for xyz happening in their lives is 'because of' mercury retrograde, or some other astrological event happening. But its not the stars fault that things are happening here, they're merely an inside look at what would be happening regardless of if we had astrological knowledge.

There's a new moon once (sometimes twice) a month, and 2 weeks later there's a full moon. The moon travels into a different astrological sign every 2.5 days. Each astrological sign brings a different flavor to the energy of that new/full moon. This pattern continues throughout the year giving us plenty of opportunities to check-in and understand where in our lives we're meant to be paying attention. The parts of our lives we're being invited to heal, shift and grow in.

I've found that asking questions is the best way for me to understand myself. It challenges me to examine why I do the things that I do, what's important to me & why, and what I truly want out of life.

Each new or full moon I tune into the energy flavor and create thought prompts that are relevant for each of us to ask ourselves in order to gain more self awarness.

Currently, 12/25/2019, there is a New Moon in Capricorn and also a Solar Eclipse - the last one of the DECADE!

Capricorn is the astrological sign the moon is in for this new moon - the flavor if you will.

Capricorn is the sign of activating, initiating, creating, expressing and illuminating. “Plan your work & work your plan” is Capricorn's motto. This energy is helping us get down to business and do the work.

Eclipses are portals that catapult us into new ways of being. They also love to shine light into the darkness of our unconscious.

This means its a huge time of year to see where you have been holding yourself back (unknowingly) due to unconscious thoughts about how the world works, giving rise to an opportunity to shift your thoughts and BE in a different way, a way of your TRUE choosing.

(I had mentioned in one of my stories a few weeks ago about ways of being that we “think” we’re choosing but we’re really not. They’re being chosen for us, based on unconscious patterns. This is a time to uncover one of those patterns!!)

What situations have occurred in your life over the past few weeks that seem to be a pattern for you?

What about this situation do you wish was different?

What would making it different actually change?

What other way could you look at this situation?

What is your desired outcome?

What steps can you take to reach this outcome?

I'd love to hear how these thought prompts are serving you!

Leave me a comment or shoot me a private message :)

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!

Much love, Dr. Sarah
