New Moon in Sagittarius: Evolve Your Soul
A New Moon is coming up in the Fire sign of Sagittarius. As all astrological events do, this New Moon has light and dark effects which we can navigate and use to our advantage using astrology.
A New Moon is a time to plant new seeds in your mental garden of hopes and visions for the future. It’s a time of magic when your creativity is at its most potent and your spiritual connection is strongest. The period between the New Moon and Full Moon holds a building energy, making it the perfect time to put your energy into creating exactly what you desire.
This particular Sagittarius New Moon has some challenging aspects that will require a deeper spiritual focus to rise above. You may find yourself and others are driven by base instincts of anger, sexual desire, and ego-based pursuits for power during this New Moon. However, the redeeming aspects of Sagittarius, the evolved soul and traveller of the zodiac, can make this New Moon one that sparks a great change for your greater good. Let us guide you on how to use the special energy of this day to gain spiritual traction instead of getting stuck in the emotional mud.
Sun & Moon in Sagittarius
When the Sun and Moon are both in the Fire sign of Sagittarius, we will be feeling more energy to get things done and a spike in our bravery and willingness to take risks. As the Mutable sign of the Fire signs, Sagittarius is always on the go and always looking for the next target to aim their arrow at. If you feel the urge to start out on a new spiritual path that could change your life, don’t be surprised, the rebirth of your spirit is on its way.
When communication planet Mercury ends its retrograde and goes direct, we can expect things that came to a halt to finally move forward again, meaning our consciousness may finally piece together our resources and fragmented ideas into a coherent plan! The shadow period of Mercury retrograde will be finalizing just around the beginning of the Sagittarius Full Moon, meaning we can really expect our Christmas wishes to be fulfilled! A focus on our Earth as a whole will be on our hearts and minds now, and the urge to travel and protect the Earth will likely be our driving motivation if we are seeking spiritual truth on this New Moon. Look to books and documentaries about environmental topics to inspire this energy into action.
Here’s some more good news: holiday parties are sure to be extra fun with both the Sun and Moon in Sagittarius, as this is one of the most outgoing signs of the zodiac. You can expect yourself to accept lots of social invitations and try new things around this time. Confidence exudes from you!
It’s important to know how to respond to your own inner insecurities and anger at this time. This is because passionate, ambitious Mars will aspect the Sagittarius New Moon in a square, a harsh angle that creates a discordant energy that brings our frustrations to the surface. It’s best to stay away from people who irritate you, and when you can’t, take a relaxing bubble bath with lavender that soothes you so your nerves don’t blow a fuse. People (and yourself) may be extra touchy and controlling, so getting away from the office or high-strung people is highly encouraged.
Take a mental health day if you want, the year is almost over anyway! Spend the day in meditation, getting a massage, journaling, making a vision board, or watching an uplifting Netflix show. People may be extra power hungry, paranoid, and unable to distinguish their feelings from reality if they aren’t spiritually healthy. Find simple, peaceful things like drinking tea, taking a nap, baking, or wrapping presents to keep your mind away from the perils of consciousness that can feel very hard-hitting and overwhelming during this time.
If you feel the darker emotions that the Sagittarius New Moon can trigger, use this time to evolve your soul. Sit with the emotions and channel that fiery energy into a passion for the greater good or a labour of love. None of us are immune to these strong emotional tides stirred by the planets, but we can recognize and use these fleeting opportunities to release deep wounds and evolve into the kinder, more compassionate humans we came here to be.
Set your intentions clearly today by writing them down and visualizing exactly what spirit moves you to manifest. The manifesting energy on the New Moon is powerful in that you can set your course for the next two weeks. Before you set your intention, make sure your ego isn’t swaying you away from the things that really matter to you. Don’t get caught up in a fantasy and choose to listen for your heart’s quiet voice instead of your ego’s loud one.
