New/Full Moons are great times for ritual and intention, and so are times of other major planetary transits, like Jupiter’s recent move into Capricorn.
Jupiter is the planet of growth, expansion, and grace. It is a benevolent planet that urges us to seek out something greater than self. Jupiter invites us to broaden our horizons and that requires faith, trust, and confidence in life, Self and Source.
Capricorn is the sign of structure, foundations, and tradition. Visualize for a moment a goat climbing a mountain. How miraculous the determination, focus, patience, tenacity, and resourcefulness the goat exhibits as it makes its way toward the summit.
With Jupiter in Capricorn, I see expansion of our comfort zones. Imagine the walls and boundaries you’ve created for yourself/business/routine/
Capricorn’s energy can sometimes feel rigid and skeptical, but Jupiter here gently nudges us toward the edge, toward mystery, the unknown and untested. Why? Because there is fruit ripening and awaiting your enjoyment just beyond what you thought was the finish line. Look at your natal chart to see the house and area of life that will be most affected by this energy (or see me for a natal chart reading).
Astro-medically, Jupiter rules the liver. If we go to the extremes and become reckless or extravagant in our expansion, then watch out for its physical manifestations in a sluggish liver, skin issues, and toxin accumulation. It’s a good season for alterative and lymphatic herbs, digestive tonics, carminatives as well as grounding Saturnian herbs, and “thinking” Mercurial herbs (they’ll help us keep our right mind 🤣).
Spiritual Baths are an excellent way to connect with your self, to be still, recharge, and relax. They are a critical part of my spiritual self-care practice. Whether you’re seasoned with spiritual baths or a newbie, try this Jupiter in Capricorn blend:
- Slippery Elm - helps with our graceful expansion (a little dab'll do ya)
- Comfrey - helps us remember to be disciplined with our actions
- Goldenrod - quells the fear that arises every time we go beyond our perceived limits
- Rose - softens and opens the heart to help us remember that we are safe in this process of growth
- Sage - clears the path forward
- Make 1 cup of the herbal blend (about an ounce of herb total). You can do equal parts or just play around and blend your mix according to the quantities you desire.
- Pour fresh-boiled hot water over the herbs (don't use the microwave).
- Cover and let steep for at least 1 hour.
- Strain and pour inside your warm bathwater.
- You can also add 1 cup of Epsom salt to your bath.
- Light candles, incense, play music, set your mood, etc.
- Relax, connect and think about what you desire to gracefully expand into during this Jupiter in Capricorn season.
