Plant Powerful Seeds of Intention with the Winter Solstice and December New Moon

Are you feeling ready to set some new intentions ready for 2023?

There is an exciting surge of planetary energy in store this December, as the final weeks of 2022 draw to a close.

We have the Winter Solstice fast approaching on December 21st, followed in quick succession by a Super New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd.

Both occasions are perfect for some deep reflection and healing, as well as a chance to start creating the future that lies ahead in 2023.

The Winter Solstice means that the sun is leaving the vibrancy and dynamism of the Sagittarius season behind, and reawakens itself in the grounded and determined sign of Capricorn.

The Winter solstice is officially the shortest day of the year and the first day of Winter (in the Northern Hemisphere).

In the Southern Hemisphere, this date marks the longest day and the first day of Summer.

Depending on where you live, you will be reflecting on the darkness of the shortest day of the year, or celebrating the light of the longest day.

But whatever your geographical location, the Solstice marks the occasion when our planet releases a powerful energy, creating a magical moment for all of us to connect with the Earth’s energies.

The Pagans and the Celts saw a deep spiritual meaning in this time of transformation of the year they called Yule.

They paid tribute to the energy of the Goddess (Moon), believing that the light always returns with the rebirth of the sun.

We can see this reflected in our own soul journeys through life.

As the days after the Winter Solstice grow gradually lighter as they lengthen, we are also always given the chance to open ourselves to more light.

The cycles of nature show us that there is always a chance to start over, no matter how dark things may have gotten.

The planet of abundance and positivity, Jupiter is also very active around the Solstice.

It moves into Aries on December 20, where it will remain for most of 2023.

That’s great news as it represents huge potential for new beginnings, positive new beginnings, expansion and wiping the slate clean for the coming year!

Jupiter in that cosmic placement also magnifies the magic of the Solstice for all of us, heightens those special vibes and sets the tone for an atmosphere of great abundance and deep expansion.

By the time we have this powerful New Moon in Capricorn on December 23rd, the stage is very much set for wonderful new beginnings to take place.

Capricorn energy is all about setting goals and making long term plans for the future.

It really is the best sign to help you get very clear about what you want to manifest and be careful and disciplined about it.

Think brand new mindsets, massive creativity, innovation, independence and the motivation to make it all happen!

There is a strong entrepreneurial energy about Capricorn, so if you have longed to create structures that will help you generate income from your passions, now is the ideal time to focus your attention on those projects.

Set New Intentions

You can channel the energy of the Winter Solstice and this New Moon to set some bold and daring intentions ahead of the New Year.

Think of yourself as a powerful dreamer, and the dream you create now is how you decide 2023 will manifest for you!

You are a magical co-creator of your life experience, you can work with the divine Universe to literally manifest what you imagine into reality!

But before you rush to set your new intentions, it’s important to be very clear about what they really are.

What are the most authentic and genuine desires held by your soul?

Using a journal to think and reveal your intentions is an amazing way to get guidance from your inner self.

Here are some prompts to help you as you visualize your dream for 2023:

  • What deep desire do I still hold in my heart that I dare not bring out into the light?
  • How can I get out of my comfort zone to get closer to what I really want?
  • What calls my soul to dance and glow with excitement?
  • If I wasn’t afraid to express my truths to the world, what would I say?
  • If my future self in 5 years was looking back at me now, what would they want to say to me?
  • How do I know that my desires are truly mine and come from the unique path of my soul?

As you write and visualize from these instructions, you will have a much clearer image of who you are and who you can be in 2023 and beyond.

Once you set your intentions you can write them down in a notebook or on a piece of paper and refer to them every day to remind yourself of your vision.

So many people make a big deal about setting their intentions, but how many people really understand what it takes to make them come true?

You must do everything you can to stay in high frequency, connected to the belief that you can have what you desire!

Remember to trust your path as it unfolds.

Love the process, and know that you keep everything in you necessary to make your life the best, and the most beautiful reflection of you can be.
