With the Sun and Moon aligned in Sagittarius, we begin a new chapter in the lunar wheel and there is an opportunity for expansion and greater knowledge as we expand our idea of what is possible. Sagittarius is the adventurer – the seeker of freedom and the one who breaks through limitations and artificially enforced boundaries to find true liberation and a path of higher knowledge.
The Sagittarius New Moon gives all of us an opportunity to open up to this energy – to learn to seek the possible rather than the familiar and expected. Under the Sagittarius New Moon our minds are blown wide open so that we can take in a higher level of understanding about the world around us.
This New Moon features the asteroid Juno (representing commitment and requirements of society) aligning with the Sun and Moon, integrating our duties and responsibilities to family and loved ones with the freedom loving journeys of Sagittarius. I imagine we will see a number of engagements occur at this New Moon!
Venus (relationships) is also featured prominently in the chart for this New Moon and any intentions that you create for this lunar cycle will want to include a focus on your interpersonal connections. “What can I do to create more harmony in my relationships and still retain my individuality” is a good question to ask at this New Moon. Don’t expect to achieve instant clarity, however, a challenging aspect from mystical Neptune will blur both the questions and the answers at the New Moon and a few days beyond. However, the information that you uncover will have merged with your conscious mind and will emerge when you are ready for it.
This is a period of great transition – not only is Uranus (radical change) conjunct Eris (goddess of discord), but we are in the final throes of the Uranus/Pluto square that has created so much disruption over the past eight years. This Sagittarius New Moon is the ideal time to let go of the hopes and dreams that have not served you well, and see a clearer vision of your new and improved future.
