🌝 New Moon in Capricorn January 13th 2021
🎉 Happy New Year Maniscripting babes! The first New Moon of the year is upon us and it’s always a very special time, and I just love anything to do with the moon so I'm excited to share one of my rituals with you in this post.
To start, if you don’t know the meaning or what a new moon signifies it’s really easy to remember: A new moon represents the start of a new lunar cycle, so naturally, it symbolizes new beginnings and a fresh start!
New Moon = New Beginnings = Easy way to remember!
You can use the energy of a new moon to achieve your goals OR to plant seeds to start new ones. This is also the perfect time to reflect on old goals and if still aligned with those goals, transfer them over into this new phase.
Our first New Moon of 2021 is on January 13th and it is in Capricorn - I’m not an astrology expert by any means, nor do I claim to be one, BUT I do research all the moons to learn what I need to focus on.
I did learn for this upcoming New Moon in Capricorn is that Capricorn Energy is all about hard work, determination, resilience and upward mobility! Which is fantastic timing as it's the beginning of a new year and this is the most popular time of the year to set new goals, review the previous year and start new projects.
If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend taking some time over the next few days during this new moon energy to set your 2021 goals and create a manifestation routine for yourself for those goals and desires to manifest this year.
If you don’t already have the Maniscripting Journal I highly recommend ordering it for this year! It is perfect for getting clear on your goals and desires, determine what’s holding you back from achieving those goals, and will help you get clear on your goals - plus it’s also a daily manifestation journal to help you manifest what you get clarity on! The first half of the journal is a question based self development workbook and the second half is your daily morning manifestation journal (plus it comes with a video course too to help guide you through it!).
In the video above I've provided a tutorial on how to do this 12 Month Card Spread. This is a great way to start any new year to give you insight into the upcoming year. Doing this card reading anytime in January is perfect, but I personally love to use the first new moon energy to do mine, as it symbolizes new beginnings.
I also have to mention, do not read TOO much into these cards. They are to guide you and help you tap into your intuition. If you pull a card that says something dark or negative, it doesn't necessarily mean something bad is going to happen to you... it can be a range of things, so don't take it too literally if you are a newbie. Don't use it as a forecast, but take the messages that you are meant to receive and reflect back on the cards after the month passes - you'll understand more as you read through the directions below.
How to do the New Year 12 Month Oracle/Tarot Card Spread?
Before you start any ritual, you want to set up and clear your sacred ritual space. I love to use candles, especially white for the new moon, surround myself with crystals and play some light high vibe music, if you want access to my Spotify Maniscripting Circle playlist: Follow it here.
Then you want to start your ritual by getting centered. You can use sage or palo Santo to clear your space. You can choose to do a meditation or just take a few deep breaths in and out while asking your guides, angels and spiritual teachers for guidance and protection during your reading.
Then you can start shuffling your cards. Any oracle or tarot card deck will work - use the one that you feel called to use!
While you’re shuffling, hold the intention to receive guidance and insight into the upcoming year. If you have any specific questions on business, career, money, life or health, feel free to ask this too.
Once you feel complete with shuffling, you’re going to pull 13 cards – one for each month and one for the total outcome.
You can pull cards in any method you like. Honestly, always use your own intuition and what you feel pulled to do here - there is no right or wrong way! Some people like to cut the deck into three piles, left to right, and select from the top. Some fan out the cards and pick cards randomly. Others cut the deck once and pull from the top that way. Use whatever method feels best for you. Again, there is no right or wrong way. I’ve used each of these methods with accurate results.
As you pull cards, you’re going to lay them out in such a way that you know which card represents what month. When doing the 12 month new year oracle spread, I like to lay the cards out in a circle - see the diagram below. Pull and place the first card at the one o’clock position and work your way around in a clockwise fashion, putting the 12th card at 12 o’clock and the 13th card in the middle, this represents the theme for the year. Pull each card first, then you can go through and read all the meanings and take what you need to from each of them.
After you have pulled all the cards, I highly recommend writing them down in your Maniscripting Journal under the Notes section at the back of the journal. This is a great way to be able to look back at your card spread after each month is over, or at the end of the year for an overall review. This way you can see how accurate your card pull was. In the journal, write out the month, name of the card pulled, and meaning of the card.
Now it’s your turn! Perform this New Moon 12 Month Oracle Card Spread for 2021 and let me know how it works out for you (comment below or tag @TheManiscriptingJournal on Instagram when you perform your ritual - I'd love to see your set up and re-post you!)
