Sagittarius New Moon 2014
We enter the darkest time of year
with a fire sign that wants to light up the sky. The Sun and Moon enter Sagittarius almost
simultaneously on Saturday morning, November 22, and the New Moon occurs soon
after. The light Sagittarius has to
offer to the world is its mainstay--the Truth.
As we emerge from our Scorpio death, rebirth and initiation into Sagittarius' new vision of Life, we get to confront the truths in our lives we've been avoiding. Truths we cannot avoid any longer.
On November 18th, the Sun joins Saturn in the last few degrees of Scorpio making us aware of the lessons Saturn has tested us with over the past 2 years while it sojourned in Scorpio. What have you learned regarding sharing who you are with other people? With being open and honest with your feelings and needs? With sharing your resources with others? With weighing your values and seeking those with similar values?
Old emotional wounds regarding sharing yourself hopefully have been cleaned up and healed. Saturn in Scorpio tells us that it's time to stop blaming others, the world and ourselves for the emotional pain we all suffer. Scorpio's lesson to us is that pain is part of life. Our job is to handle that pain with consciousness and courage.
Saturn enters Sagittarius in December 23rd for the first time since 1986. (What was happening in your life back then?) It will retrograde back into Scorpio from June to September 2015, and then it begins our testing of Sagittarius' goals--to know what our beliefs are and if we live by them. Never doubt we'll be tested!
That's why it's important for us to see our truth, walk our talk, and share the vision of the possible human--an awake and responsible human being. This month before the Winter Solstice is celebrated as a time of visioning and hope, a time when the light comes from within each person as the outer darkness grows. What if we each became a light to the world this month? What if we shine out this month with our Truth, regardless of what others expect of us?
What beautiful Light we have within us! Bring it out and let it guide you through the darkness of these times.
A New Moon is the beginning of a new cycle, a time when a seed idea or feeling is planted in the unconscious so it can grow to awareness up until the next Full Moon.
A Sagittarius New Moon poises the question: What do you believe and do you have the faith to keep believing? What do you understand how following the Cosmic Laws of the Universe (uni=one--world) makes us whole?
Sagittarius is the sign of the seeker, the philosopher, the curious wanderer. Sagittarius wants to find the meaning of life, and so keeps looking over the horizon for a new way to see the world. Out of the dark rebirth of Scorpio comes a need to see the Light and understand the grace of that re-birth. Our mind projects outwards into the unknown and we open to unexpected experiences. We are on a Quest--the quest for the meaning of life. While our experiences define us, our ability to look at different perspectives sets the tone for the intuitive leap of understanding which is central to Sagittarius' quest for meaning.
There is optimism and a sense of enthusiasm for new adventures that defines Sagittarius' energy. This mutable fire sign wants the freedom to explore and expand our awareness until we can see into the cosmos and know we belong to it. Our life has meaning and we are not alone in our search.
