To seek for wonder, to search out light and wonder in all ways that the mind expands into its growth, to never stop marveling at LIFE itself – that is the Sagittarian way. Ruled by the massive planet Jupiter, orbited by many moons, taking up an enormous energetic space in the cosmology of our make-up, this Sagittarian lunation is an opportunity to set your New Moon intentions to push yourself beyond your usual grid of thinking patterns, to widen your perspective. Such a good challenge, Saturn agrees and supports!, as AWARENESS of SELF is required in order to really embrace a core philosophy.
Do you know what your core philosophies are? Do you know what you are seeking? Are doorways to the Spirit world opening more and more for you? Are you willing to confront your own fear to know more, that maybe knowing more could be overwhelming and you’re already overwhelmed? Know what your tolerance is for new information and give yourself the time and support to learn what you need to learn in the way you learn things. Polarization creates more polarization. Are you open to consider UNITY awareness…the new wave of Aquarian energy coming our collective way? it’s coming anyway and it’s going to rock the world.
The New Moon at 20 degrees Sagittarius (the Sun and the Moon are both at 20 degrees Sagittarius) is being squared by dreamy planet Neptune moving at 24 degrees Pisces. Neptune adds a level of illusion or delusion or pure visionary power. Messages may be coming more through spontaneous thoughts, dreams, and when you are in a relaxed emotional state. I know these days it can be way hard to get to a neutral, relaxed emotional state but that is essential if you are to receive clear guidance for yourself. Something as simple as: should I go
to that party I was invited to and already said yes to or is it best for me, in that moment, to not go to the party? Maybe what you really need is time by yourself and a good soak in a salt, scented bath. The only way to know for sure is to be so aligned with what your physical and emotional body is telling you, that you are tapped into and are aware of your needs, so you will make the decisions that best support YOU.
Chiron at 15 degrees Aries makes a trine to the New Moon. Healing is possible as you moderate impulsive responses (Aries) with big picture awareness (Sagittarius).
Mercury at 8 degrees Capricorn is squaring Jupiter at 6 degrees Taurus. The more you speak with others respectfully, accepting that you don’t in any way know what their reality is and what their experience is, the more ease you will experience in the physical realm. Especially watch for how you speak to yourself. Are you being too hard on yourself, expecting too much, setting the bar too high? Much compassion is needed these days, especially for your sensitive self. Saturn transiting the early degrees of Pisces supports compassion in real, tangible ways.
Venus at 9 degrees Scorpio embraces emotional intensity and is not afraid to dive deeply into passion. Feelings are heightened and so is the need to temper that intensity with kindness for yourself and for others also traversing deep feeling states. Mars at 13 degrees Sagittarius makes a wide conjunction to the New Moon, giving energy and drive to the seeker. Watch for the Martian drive to veer away from arguing. Direct Sag Mars toward action that serves a vaster vision, a Sagittarian expansive vibration.
