Want to Know the Energies You Can Expect from This New Moon?

A Special Message About Manifestation Grid From Reverend Pauline Southard

The Capricorn New Moon of January 2, 2022 Manifestation Grid with Rev. Pauline Southard

The first New Moon of 2022 arrives on Sunday afternoon, January 2, 2022, giving us a quiet moment to take a breath before we return from the holidays the next day . It’s a great day to give and/or receive a massage or a reflexology session from someone close to us. A hike in the woods is another wonderful way to take advantage of this earthy Capricorn lunation.

At its best, Capricorn is calm, mature and stable. Like the other two earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, they are practical and great at dealing with the necessary details of life.  Capricorns are wonderful as administrators and entrepreneurs. They know how to get the job done!

When Capricorn energy is used unskillfully, it can be pessimistic, detached and workaholic.

Famous Capricorns run the gamut from Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, Muhammed Ali, Meghan Trainor, Gayle King and Kate Middleton.

This New Moon does offer us some encouragement. Jupiter, the planet of optimism and luck has entered Pisces. Jupiter is the classical ruler of Pisces, which will give us some much needed positive energy. Since Jupiter is straddling the 10th/11th house cusp of the chart set for the east coast of the USA, we can expect luck with career and our goals. Perhaps even the federal government will be able to make progress on achieving our common national goals.

 Events on the love and marriage side of life promise to get more intense in the next several days as both the Moon and Sun conjunct first Juno, the marriage asteroid, a retrograde Venus, the planet of love and luxury, Pluto the planet of inexorable change and transformation and finally the asteroid Astraea, which is all about endings and closure.  Hmmmm…. This could be interesting!  

FINALLY though, Venus will end its retrograde cycle on January 29, 2022, allowing difficulties in our romantic lives to ease.

However, Mercury goes retrograde on Jan 14, 2022 and goes direct on February 3, 2022 giving us both Mercury, the planet of communication and mental processes and Venus retrograde between February 14, 2022 through January 29, 2022. Expect all kinds of miscommunication in our love relationships ranging from that comic relief moment to much more serious issues. Kindness and patience are really going to be necessary!

Mercury retrograde occurs three times a year for approximately three weeks at a time.  At this time, Mercury appears to move backwards among the stars. The standard astrological advice is to reflect and plan rather than to move ahead on new projects. Things start to slow down and become more difficult as Mercury begins to slow down prior to moving retrograde.

This Mercury retrograde starts with a square to Uranus, so it is doubly important to back up computers, laptops and phones. Make sure to check plans and trips, whether they are virtual or actual. Expect cancellations and delays. If you are depending on Zoom or similar platforms for business or school having a secondary device could save the day. The best advice though, is to expect the unexpected!

I decided to consult The Sabian Symbol oracle this month to see what guidance it could offer now. I was intrigued to see that the Sabian Vision, “The Magician” is all about the process of mastery. It calls us to empower ourselves by using our ability to manifest our goals and dreams. What is your favorite method of manifestation? I love affirmations and vision boards, but manifestation rituals attuned to the Capricorn New Moon and whatever other form of transforming energy into consensual reality are perfect now. This Sabian symbol tells us that, “we need to align ourselves with the creative power of the universe. That is true magic!”

For this first New Moon of the year, I pulled a card from the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential? The Minor Arcana card, “The 10 of Wands” greeted me.

Frankly, I was surprised to see the 10 of Wands, a fire element card for Capricorn, an earth sign. Most often, the element for the card I pull and the sign for the New Moon are the same, lovely examples of synchronicity. When I looked further though, I saw that Ms. Phelan’s ideas about this card and some aspects of the Sabian symbols play perfectly into the energy of this New Moon chart. The Sabian symbol essentially is about mastery and Ms. Phelan’s notes about the 10 of Wands dovetail perfectly with this concept. She tells us that the 10 of Wands key phrases are, “Mastery of both craft and self, Take command of yourself and life, Take responsibility for your actions and Be disciplined and dedicated.” This is the essence of Capricorn at its best!

Going deeper, I tuned into the image that this beautiful card gifts us with. I see that we need to mix the fire element with the earth element to generate our desires. The first step is to clear ourselves and our spaces. We can begin by saging ourselves and our homes- a great example of the earth and fire element combining. The image shows us a figure with perfectly balanced chakras. We can balance and harmonize our chakras. There are some marvelous videos on YouTube that will help you. A Time for Karma has some wonderful crystal balancing chakra kits that will help as well.

Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.

Strong earthy Black Onyx strengthens focus and willpower. It has a grounding power that creates a strong bond between the Earth and our higher selves. Black Onyx will also protect us and has been used in many cultures for healing and regeneration.

The powerful Garnet crystal has a natural association with the element of fire. It will provide us with the necessary balance of earth and fire that we will need during this New Moon cycle. It is also the gemstone associated with the month of January.

I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started seven years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed.

Archangel Metatron, my primary guide had channeled this method to help you to put your requests in remotely:

#1- Please write your intentions on a piece of paper with the date, feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!

#2- Visualize yourself accomplishing your desire. (I would certainly appreciate if you could also request the disappearance of the Corona Virus and the quick healing of ALL of those affected and the healing of all inequality and hate ), feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!

#3- Using the picture on the Karma website, intend to put your request into the grid just as you would if you were in the store. Archangel Metatron has told me that he will help you to make that happen. You do NOT need to be good at visualizing! Every morning I will be charging the Grid with long distance Reiki and other powerful energies to help make your wishes come true.

#4- When you feel that the process is complete you may either dispose of the paper or put it on your altar, refrigerator or paste it into your journal. It is helpful but not necessary to spend a few minutes every day for the next thirty days repeating Step 3. Your intentions will be active in the Grid for the next 30 days. !

 I am so happy that I am now back at A Time for Karma doing readings in person on Fridays and Saturdays. Reading for you over the last 20 years here at Karma has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. Please call either A Time for Karma at (516) 442-3200 or you may call me directly at (516) 445-4242 to schedule your reading.

Happy New Year! Wishing you a Capricorn lunar cycle filled with happy manifestations!

Last Month's New Moon Message

The Sagittarius New Moon arrives in the very early morning hours of Saturday Dec. 4,2021 for those of us on the east coast of the USA, in an unusually quiet way for fiery happy go lucky Sagittarius.  We are happy to just sleep in to welcome this New Moon!

At its best, Sagittarian energy is happy and optimistic, exactly what you would expect from Jupiter, the jovial giant who rules Sagittarius.  Sagittarius loves to travel and just have a great time. Sagittarius is fun to be around. They are very social and friendly. At its most profound, Sagittarius is about the human quest for meaning and purpose.

When Sagittarian energy is used unskillfully, it can be blunt and insensitive, impatient to the point of not bothering or caring about details and reckless. 

Sagittarius is a Centaur- half man and half horse. These mythical creatures highlight humanity’s eternal dance of reconciling our primal instinct vs. the requirements of civilized society.  Not surprisingly, Sagittarius is the philosopher of the Zodiac.  I’ve also noticed that many Sagittarians love to ride horses!

Famous Sagittarians include: Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, Tiffany Haddish, Jay-Z, Bill Nye the Science Guy and Emanuel Macron the French President. Quite a wonderful collection of people who are all great examples of the diverse ways that Sagittarian energy can manifest in human form!

It would be awesome if this last New Moon of the year would deliver just fun and games for the holiday season as we would expect from Sagittarius. However, like almost all of the New Moon charts this year, this chart has a lot of action and complexity.

For starters, this New Moon is the last solar eclipse of the year.  A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon in its orbit around the Earth passes in front of the Sun, blotting it out either completely or partially. This New Moon Solar eclipse will be total and so much more powerful than a partial eclipse.

 Many cultures found this to be a very frightening event. Ancient astrologers were expected to be able to correctly predict when eclipses would occur or they could be executed!  During an eclipse, the Moon, mistress of the night, the primal powers within us and the unknown blots out the Sun, whose life giving energy sustains life on earth and is the master of the day and the rational. 

Generally, the effects of an eclipse are felt six weeks before the eclipse and several weeks after, although the energetic reverberations can extend to include a much broader time frame. During the time frame of the eclipse energy, we can expect that the feelings and situations that we bury within ourselves will rise to the surface, which often feels quite uncomfortable.

This New Moon eclipse falls into the 2nd house of the chart which is all about money and finance. Inflation fears will escalate and we all may be tempted to spend our way out of the Pandemic Blues. Be careful and be sure to have a budget as this New Moon eclipse squares Neptune which can cause us to spend recklessly and end up with a nasty post-holiday hangover! 

Venus begins its retrograde journey on December 19, 2021 and moves direct again on Jan 29, 2021. During this time Venus appears to travel backwards against the background of the fixed stars.  Lovers from the past may reappear causing us to revisit the reasons the relationship did not last!

Issues in committed relationships that have been swept under the carpet surface to finally be worked out. Since Venus is in Capricorn, initially we may feel a definite chill from our loved ones but a loving and serious approach to problem solving is the best bet now.  Whatever understandings we may arrive at this time can have a long lasting and positive impact.

On Christmas Eve, Saturn will square Uranus for the last time this year. As I wrote in the February 2021 column, “Saturn, the planet of discipline, structure, rules and authority will do battle with Uranus, the planet of revolution, rebellion and freedom. These two behemoths will square each other exactly three times this year, February 17, June 14 and December 24 causing turmoil both in the world and within ourselves.”

We can expect unusual weather and unexpected delays of all kinds. Whenever Uranus is involved, you know that completely unpredictable situations and circumstances are right around the corner. The best advice is to give yourself some extra time so that it won’t become your problem and be prepared to change your plans!

Last, but certainly not least, Hygeia the asteroid which I have found to correlate with all of the New Moon charts where the Corona Virus made major headlines is back again in a prominent place in the chart.  Sitting directly on the ascendant of the chart, it warns us that Omicron is very likely to play a major role in the next several weeks in how we travel and celebrate the holidays as well as how we as Americans feel as we near the end of the year.

This month, I once again reached for the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, What do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential?

I pulled the minor arcana card, “The 7 of Fire.” I knew that I was definitely headed in the right direction as fire is the element associated with Sagittarius. Ms. Phelan tells us that this card symbolizes the development and use of our intuition to see the way forward so we can make the best possible choices. This process requires us to look within, a wonderful use of the complex energy we will be experiencing during this lunar cycle. While it may not be a completely innocent and wholly joyful time, we may discover the fiery treasure that lies within ourselves and others.

While meditating on this chart, I channeled an empowering and lovely visualization that will help us to joyfully embrace this very multidimensional lunar cycle.

Despite the challenges that this New Moon presents us with, a New Moon always ushers in a fresh start. Tapping into the natural optimism and buoyance of this Sagittarian New Moon will help us to release that which holds us back and connect with the bright future we have the power to manifest. 

One beautiful way to do this is to connect with the energy of the three most important planets in this New Moon chart that will be visible in the night sky on December 4, 2021. (If the weather doesn’t co-operate, the planets will be visible during most of this lunar cycle, but the closer to the actual New Moon the better.)

Although is this best done outside in a quiet place in nature, anywhere that you can see the western horizon will work. Starting a few minutes before sunset, take a few breaths to ground and center yourself. Feel the energy of the setting Sun enter the top of your head, energizing and warming you. Intend that it travels down your body exiting through the soles of your feet creating a beautiful crystal root of light that ultimately wraps around the core of Mother Earth.

It feels great to continue to breathe deeply, allowing your body to relax as the sky becomes darker. Very soon, you will see a brilliant sparkling star fairly close to the horizon. This is Venus, the brightest “star” in the night sky.  Venus symbolizes love, beauty, money and pleasure. As you look at her, it is easy to see why this beautiful star has always been seen as having such positive energy. Visualize yourself connecting with Venus, and see yourself manifesting all of the gifts Venus can bestow.

Looking higher in the sky, a slightly dimmer but still very bright star is twinkling in the twilight. This is Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system and the planet associated with Sagittarius. Jupiter’s gifts include luck, generosity, spirituality abundance and wisdom. Again, visualize yourself connecting with Jupiter’s energy and be open to receive!

Finally, if we look between Venus and Jupiter, we will find Saturn. Saturn is fainter than Jupiter, but it is the brightest star in that area once the sky gets dark enough to see it. Saturn is all about structure, organization and discipline. We can connect with Saturn seeing ourselves productive, organized and disciplined able to navigate whatever situations our lives present us with, while successfully using the gifts Venus and Jupiter grace us with.

Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.

There were a lot of contenders for the best crystals to put into the Grid for this New Moon but finally I chose Orange Aura Quartz and Smokey Quartz. Orange Aura Quartz is just so beautiful how could I resist? It’s a terrific fit for this month as it combines the characteristics of quartz crystal, the natural healer with the abundance, wisdom and prosperity of Gold to give us the perfect combination of positive energy, strength and vitality.

Considering the challenges this Solar Eclipse New Moon can bring, I choose a powerful piece of Smokey Quartz to help us to gently dispel depression and negativity so we can be ready to embody the energy of the Orange Aura Quartz. Additionally, the Smokey Quartz is a wonderful crystal to keep us grounded and centered.

I purchased some wonderful pieces at A Time For Karma and I am enjoying their beauty and energy as we move towards this December New Moon.

I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started eight years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed.

Full Moon

New Moon Manifestation Ritual

During the new moon phase the moon goes from smaller to bigger so it is a great time to manifest anything you would like to increase.

Hand write a list of what you wish to manifest on a piece of paper. Be very specific!

Go outside and read your wishes aloud to the moon. Afterward thank the moon and the universe for listening.

Fold your paper and keep it in a safe and prominent place, such as your altar. Read your list daily, outside if possible, thanking the moon and the universe every time.

Do this every day until the full moon.
When the moon is full, read your list one final time, then burn it in the flame of a candle, sending it up to the universe.

Trust and know that your wishes will be manifested at the perfect time and in the perfect way for you.

Information papers for this ritual as well as for many items in our store are available free of charge every day at Karma!
