Capricorn Season Grounding Meditation

Definitive Action

At the Aries First Quarter Moon, take swift and definitive action. Like a blacksmith, hammer the molten iron of your plan into a fine-edged tool. Trust your recent introspections to guide you in making powerful and effective choices. Watch the sparks fly while something new and transformative takes shape.

Harnessing Anger

Aries carries the warrior archetype, a symbol that is often corrupted and exploited for violence in our modern culture. In the best case, Aries represents fast-acting and highly effective energy that, when put to good use, gets more done than any other zodiac sign. In emergencies, Aries performs risky and lifesaving rescues without hesitation. Every individual human has been handed a legacy to undo and redirect this twisting of Aries energy. This involves recognizing and harnessing anger so you can channel it into effective and positive action. Therefore, use the Aries First Quarter Moon during Capricorn season to take responsibility for your individual action. Accept the challenge of being decisive and single-minded, without slipping into selfishness or tyranny.
