Tonight’s New Moon is in Sagittarius. Archer energy is always fun — Sagittarius, while the philosopher’s sign, is also always up for anything. As a Sag myself, I often say my philosophy of life is, “What? I’m too busy dancing!” When the New Moon is in Sagittarius, we’re invited to look at our Shadow side and discover what spark of light we can generate or find to illuminate the darkness. Coming as it does in the darkening days before Winter Solstice, the Sagittarius New Moon also reminds us that there is always dawning after the night, and also that night will inevitably follow day. We need to ride the tides of this cycle, trusting that all darkness will eventually be dispelled by light — even if it means that darkness must come again eventually.
The focus this new moon is on relationships — with each other, with the world, with our communities, and with ourselves. Awakenings happening to us and around us as well — some of these are painful, some are jarring, but all are necessary. There is a sense that the world is waking up from a long sleep, or shaking itself out of complacency.
Sagittarius is an active sign, and pushes us to act on the things we have been planning or considering. Now is not the time for debate, but for practical action.
This New Moon, I’m calling in focus. I’ve got so much flying about in my creative Sagittarian head that it’s been hard to take concrete action. I’m calling in inspiration coupled with diligence, so that I can put these plans of mine into action.
What are you calling in this New Moon? Feel free to share your intentions in the comments. As we speak them, we breathe them into life.
