The New Moon in Sagittarius is at 2:29 AM on the West Coast (PST), so will occur at 5:29 EST in the East. Sagittarius has the reputation for great optimism and adventure as it is affiliated with the archetypes of the Gypsy, the Student, and the Philosopher. The exploration of life and the quest for its meaning are the lifetime journey for this sign. It is hard to escape the feeling of “holidays” at this time of year. It is interesting to consider that this is rooted in “Holy Days”. Regardless of the faith, this is a season of gathering with family, enjoying and appreciating a meal together, and finally ringing in the New Year with a retrospective look perhaps on the passing year. In the energy of the season, we can feel a certain giddiness of anticipation, much like a child who wonders and dreams of what may be under that Christmas tree or what they will open each day of Hanukkah. When are asked, what do you want for Christmas or what do you want for your Birthday, a certain fiery excitement can flood our senses. As children, this answer can seem to have no bounds, not necessarily rooted in possible reality. However, this process, this vision, this belief in possibility captures the Sagittarian momentum. Sagittarius is thirsty to be inspired and enlightened if you will by discovering the meaning of it all. Quite a wide aim of the Archers arrow, but this is the essence of it, believing that the answer may be just beyond the horizon which ignites a passion to keep moving forward. At the New Moon, we have a blank slate. A limitless drawing board that we can infuse our intentions that will come into fruition at the Full Moon which happens to be on Christmas Day this year. Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is currently in the sign of Virgo influencing that dream to be somewhat realistic, however themes of self-improvement and growth whether it be our health or mastering a craft, we can strive for perfection in that which we have been working on. In contrast to the Sagittarian vivaciousness, this will keep us somewhat grounded in how far we dream. Uranus, the Awakener, is trying to support our aims and bring into awareness the courageous and authentic part of ourselves to may need a jolt of electricity to do that which may not seem to be what anyone is advising you to do but which arises from within as your own individual expression. So dream a little dream, we sure could use some optimism under these challenging times in our world and write down your answer to that age old question “What do YOU want for Christmas?” Of course, this is a rhetorical question and an example of the idea, should you not believe in Christmas, I am sure your beliefs support an idea of the magic of an intention and vision.
