Today's New Moon in the fiery sign Sagittarius heralds a month of inspiration, aspiration and enthusiasm. As the Sun and Moon join together, let your inner truth and outer quest expand into oneness as you seek answers on your path to wholeness. The past month, with the Sun in Scorpio, Fixed Water, signified an intense need to share emotional desires and create lasting productive liaisons. Now it is time to take all your creativity and joint projects to new heights of endeavoring!
This is the last New Moon of 2013 and the final time before the Sun enters industrious Capricorn at the Winter Solstice on December 21st, to adjust your thinking and your endeavors to suit the new goals you are setting for yourself this lunar month. Sagittarius is the sign of the seeker, philosopher and teacher, always ready to chase new horizons in its' quest for truth and a higher purpose. What is your purpose and how do you see yourself fitting into the bigger picture?
The underlying energy of this New Moon has to do with our higher selves and the highest ideals to which one can aspire. There is a caution not to get on one's soapbox or to proselytize one's beliefs, because while they might be right for you, they are not for everyone! The expansiveness of Sag's ruler, Jupiter, reminds us of the inclusiveness of many different beliefs and faiths. Each soul has its' own path to follow on its' journey and you can get some insight into yours by knowing where Sagittarius and Jupiter are in your Natal chart. For many people, the current transit of Jupiter in Cancer is highlighting the need for a safe and nurturing home; maybe this is part of your Sagittarian quest this month.
For some, when the Sun is traveling through Sagittarius, long range goals get a make-over that may involve travel, publishing that book you've kept on the back burner all these years, or studying philosophical or spiritual matters. There is a teacher in Sag that loves to travel the world and gather information, bringing it back to share with all. There is a broadcaster and a philosopher and a procrastinator too...which of these Archer personnas do you want to personify this month?!
While dreaming your vision into reality, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground.
