10. Moon in Capricorn – Umbilicus Function Energy

Building solidly

After the expansiveness of Sagittarius, it is time to get down to earth and put in the work necessary to accomplish our goals. Capricorn – Umbilicus Function Energy helps us with that task. When in harmony, we know how to build solid structures in our life. We know our limits, use our resources wisely, and delegate appropriately. 

When not in harmony with this energy, we become too rigid in our ways, fearful of trying new things, relying on outgrown ideas and approaches.

To find out what it means to be a true executive of our life, we’ll harmonize Umbilicus for the next couple of days. 

Left Side

Place your Left Hand above the right eyebrow in the area of Right SEL 20. Place your Right hand on the left elbow at Left SEL 19. Hold for 3-5 minutes or for as long as it feels good.

Right Side

Place your Right Hand above the left eyebrow in the area of Left SEL 20. Place your Left hand on the right elbow at Right SEL 19.

If the holds above are too much effort, simply hold lightly the ring finger of either hand.

How It Helps

What we call Umbilicus in JSJ corresponds to the Triple Heater (Burner) Meridian of TCM. This energy is responsible for bringing nourishment to all other energy aspects and regulates body temperature.

Harmonized Umbilicus gifts us with the flexibility of joints. It alleviates aching due to stiffness in joints. If you choose to hold the ring finger, that also helps improve the quality of breathing.

As Moon sweeps through Capricorn, it will encounter Pluto who has been residing at this part of the sky since 2008. That will stir issues of honesty and courage. If any anxieties come up during this time, you can assure yourself that it is all for the good by repeating the phrase “I Am Being Released.”
