Every month we have the opportunity to work with the Dark Moon and consider new possibilities. We are cosmically encouraged to open to something yet unrealized, to weave together a hope, a wish, a dream, into the fabric of our lives.
This New Moon is in the fire sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius has a zest for life and all the promise of great adventure! Sagittarius seeks knowledge and understanding, through the gathering of new experiences. Traveling to an exotic location, or exploring different world views are nourishment to this ever searching fire sign.
Sagittarius is on a quest for the meaning of life. Who are we? Why are we here; what is our purpose? We grow up and through school, family, friends, and society we absorb ideas and belief systems; knowingly and unknowingly. Unless we go beyond these beliefs, many times we don’t actually realize what it is that guides us. With an orientation to seek further than what is known, Sagittarius searches out and names its own beliefs. Living by personal principle and faith that life is worth living; Sagittarius moves forward. During this Moon consider what your personal truth is, as you set your sights on what and where you are being called to plant the seed of something new.
Sagittarius also is a sign that requires freedom and movement. There is an innocent exuberance that can at times take off a bit too quickly, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and this can create some mishaps not anticipated. Move with trust, yet be conscious of what you desire the outcome to be as you make decisions and take actions.
Jupiter, which rules Sagittarius is currently in the sign of Virgo, and is part of this Moon energy. Jupiter in Virgo squares this New Moon creating stress for the exuberance of this Sagittarius Moon; yet if you look at it with an open mind, you will see it can be an experience of growth; one that can feel compelling. This energy brings the need to stretch further, to feed your dreams using discernment and attention to the details. With a hopeful heart, we all have the opportunity to set that seed of something new in the soil, with a carefully constructed plan that will have a better chance of fully manifesting.
It’s very important to understand what house of your birthchart this New Moon falls into. This will give you the information about the area of life that is the setting for new beginnings. Where you are being asked to move forward with some hope and faith, to go into the unknown, or the known in a new and different way. In doing so there is the realization that life offers the opportunity for new ideas, direction and growth if we open ourselves up to it.
