“Sagittarius is the prelude to Christmas. As the snow, it absorbs all littleness into the vast womb of silence from which the new birth of the Day-force [the Light] will emerge. The mind that binds all life into patterns of cosmic relationships has become a ‘mother of the Living God’. The Sagittarian has all the heroisms, the self-abnegation and the loving tyranny of mothers. S/He closes an era and opens another. S/He is pregnant with divinity.”

Dan Rudyar, “The Pulse of Life”

This New Moon in Sagittarius beckons us into the Unknown, Rudyar’s “Vast Womb of Silence.” Are you open to new horizons and new truths? How ready are you to step out of old perspectives and step into new realities? This time of year, before Winter Solstice, has always been a time of preparation for Celebration – we celebrate the rebirth of the Light out of the Darkness. Do you remember how to celebrate (to honor, to solemnize, to frequent) Life and the Light?

What does it feel like to be ‘pregnant with divinity’? This morning I had a dream. Someone tells me to look at the Pleiades. I look out a window and see a big, bright, sparkling constellation of stars shining in the blue daytime sky. It is beautiful! Later I see another constellation dissolve like fireworks, sparkles falling down to Earth.

An old paradigm (archetypal pattern) is gone and another is taking its place. From earliest times, it was believed that the big star in the Pleiades, Alcyone, was the central Sun of our Galaxy, pulling at our solar system. Are we being called to the Center? Is this what it feels like to be ‘pregnant with divinity’ – to see and acknowledge the transformations at the heart of the great Cosmic Laws?

I would say that’s a cause for Celebration!

When we come to Sagittarius in the cycle of the Year, we come to the height of Darkness, when the Day-force [the Light] is weakest. “The power that strove mightily through Libra and Scorpio to expand man’s horizon and man’s feelings is now operating almost unchallenged by the opposite trend of the Day-force, now at its lowest ebb. Collectivism overpowers individualism. Society dominates over personality; the far, over the near.” (Rudhyar, p. 86.)

Sagittarius looks to the distant connections we make, the universal laws, the big picture, the search for meaning. The Sagittarian Centaur, half-horse and half-man, shoots his arrows heavenward. A horse represents virile power, the type of power a person can control and which can help expand his range of activity. This horseman symbolizes power and the ability to use power with the conscious mind. His arrow represents direction and purpose, and it is pointed at a 45 angle to heaven, representing the maximum mobilization of energies. The big Sagittarian question is how to direct the power into the proper channels. The Earth is the source of his power, but he is not bound to it. He uses it, but it is concerned with the needs of the group. He is the servant of the community. (Rudhyar)

The New Moon, at 17º16’ Sagittarius, is conjunct Mercury (13º Sag) and close to the big Jupiter/Pluto conjunction (28º24’ Sag) and squaring Uranus (15º Pisces). Every New Moon is a new beginning, a seed time. This New Moon will be seeded by the power of this conjunction and the evolutionary energies from the Galactic Center. It also squares the degree of the September 11th solar eclipse. What did you initiate three months ago? It will be part of this New Moon, which is seeding big changes, and new and unique perspectives – declaring in the heavens a new spiritual center, available to us if we let the ‘new birth’ emerge out of the darkness.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
