New Moon in Capricorn
Time to set some goals:
New Moon in Capricorn
It’s the first new moon of winter and the final new moon of 2022!
On Friday December 23rd the new moon will peak in Capricorn, a cardinal earth sign. Cardinal signs are the zodiacs that align with solstices and equinoxes, signaling the change of season. For that reason these signs are often associated with traits involving leadership and the willingness to embrace change.
This new moon is all about goal setting. As an earth sign, Capricorn shines light on the practical matters of your life more so than the emotional or spiritual. As the year draws to a close, the ambitious energy of Capricorn provides the perfect opportunity to focus on what you want to achieve next year.
But before you focus on the future, use the new moon energy to explore what you have learned this year. Be kind to yourself and forgive your shortcomings. Take note of what you did that you truly feel brought you value, and that which did not seem worth the effort.
Exercise gratitude for the people in your life who bring you joy and give some thought to what you can do to show them how much they are appreciated.
Then take those lessons and the warm feeling of gratitude for all you have, and use that as the momentum to propel you forward.
The journey continues, and you have what it takes to make the most of it.
Combining scents to inspire focus:
You can use fragrance as a way to aid in any type of work requiring a lot of focus, especially if these fragrances are familiar and enjoyable to you.
Floré has over 25 fragrances of incense sticks to choose from, and you can even burn several different incense sticks at a time, taking familiar fragrances and turning them into something new.
Cedar and Lavender are two of Floré's most popular single note fragrances of stick incense. Both are considered to be cleansing, air freshening fragrances, and are very popular scents used widely in aromatherapy, incense and candles, and in personal care products like body wash and lotions.
When Cedar incense and Lavender incense are burned together, the result is a very refreshing, balanced blend of earthy wood and spicy floral fragrance. It can be both mentally soothing and clarifying, which is the perfect state to be in while working on your goal setting for the new year.
During the first new moon of winter you may long for warmer, sunnier weather that would help put you in the mood to focus. Floré's Coconut incense and Lemongrass incense can be burned together and produces a summery, tropical fragrance.
You may not be able to get away to that beach vacation just yet, which is a good goal for next year, but in the meantime bring a little beach vibe into your space to get you motivated. Coconut incense and Lemongrass incense are available in packages of 20 sticks.
