The Sagittarius New Moon is upon us. It will arrive very close to the time the Sun moves in Sagittarius. As of late, we have been in “Scorpio City” with a total of 4 Planets hanging out in the energy of deep emotional intensity for the past 2 weeks. Scorpio energy can sting, but it can also provide some awareness around what we are really made of, what are our limitations and what do we do when the (poop) hits the fan. It can reach down to your core and crawl into the dark crevices, bringing to light some of the shadows we have dismissed, pushed away, or tried to ignore. The purpose is to heal and integrate the rawness of our human experience. The intense climax and ecstasy that only comes through involving the soul and integrating the part of ourselves that is beyond this human physical form. Now as we launch into Sagittarius, we are offered an opportunity to allow our mental selves to find perspective and meaning to all of this experience. What beliefs are true to me now that I have exposed my underbelly? How can I formulate greater knowledge of myself to align with my belief system and develop an expansive vision? How can I learn to incorporate my shadows and continue the quest for deeper understanding?
Sagittarius has more syllables than any other sign, mirroring its ownership as the intellectual of zodiac. Coming from a place where theories and philosophies are born, it seeks to open up the mind and revel in experiences that allow one to explore, free from set rules or limitations. Known as the “Adventurer” or “Gypsy”, it seeks for seeks sake, entertained and fulfilled by the journey into the unknown. Somewhat of an optimistic sign, it feels a joviality and excitement in heading towards uncharted territory. Its positive perspective and fire energy allows it to go where no man has roamed, to be joyful even when conditions may not be so desirable for it knows in the end, it will be satiated with new understanding allowing new theories and beliefs to emerge. One of the only signs with a nickname “Sag” which if you add an “e” becomes Sage, allow yourself to become wise through your experiences.
At New Moon, we have a blank slate. A dark moist soil from the remnants of watery Scorpio, ready to plant a seed with our intentions. We can choose to engage in the mystery, the uncharted vision, the search for greater meaning in our experience. It will be at 0 degrees corresponding to the theme of the new, the beginning, and the unlimited potential of possibility as you embark on a quest. The word quest is a shortened word for “question” which leads Sagittarius to keep asking questions and inquiring to form a well thought out perspective, leaving "no stone unturned". So set your desires to have life open you up, infiltrate your hardened beliefs, your conditioned reality and leap merrily into the fascinating mystery and unfolding of it all.
