1st New Moon of 2021! – Rise To Your Occasion


I articulate a clear and inspired personal vision for 2021 and find enthusiasm in establishing a strategic, realistic plan of action in the attainment of my goals and dreams.

I trust the right people, experiences and resources will show up to support me in the realization of my vision.

I am in integrity and confidence in myself and my reputation.

We haven’t had a New Moon in Capricorn since the end of 2019, yet 2020 was the year of the Mountain Goat. Make the most of the momentum and drive. This is an ideal and divine time to set your 2021 intentions. 

This is the New Moon for your long-game. Look towards your future, plan today.
