Sagittarius New Moon

The New Moon in Sagittarius is about hope, spontaneity, optimism, faith and adventure. Wherever it falls in your chart is where you need an injection of these things. For that reason, this is one of my favourite New Moons of the year. It’s the opportunists New Moon. It’s not so much glass half full or half empty, it’s, ‘wow that half was great and now there’s room for more, so fill me up!’

Sagittarius is the Seeker, the Optimist, the Gypsy, the Student of Life and the Preacher of Faith. It follows that wherever Sagittarius falls in your chart is where you are being asked to actively seek out people and experiences to help you expand beyond your comfort zone on this great adventure we call Life. It’s where you aim for the horizon, focus on the future and the possibility of possibility, and ask the bigger questions.

Every so often we need to re-discover this part of ourselves – the part that will take a little (measured) risk, the part that wants to be excited by what’s next, the part that wants your heart to race (even just a little) at what you have just (or soon will) experienced.

The New Moon is your reminder to do just that. It can be like a recharge on your faith and excitement switch so if life is feeling a tad so-so, you have the opportunity to do something about it. Notice I said you have the opportunity to do something about it? Yep, as with all new starts, passivity simply won’t cut it.

It doesn’t need to be difficult – it could be as simple as trying a new cuisine next time you eat out or picking up a book on something you’ve always wanted to learn about.

The other thing with the New Moon in Sagittarius is that you might be less afraid to look up and out, to take that leap of faith. Maybe you feel you have outgrown your present situation? Maybe it’s time to take the reins into your hands and gallop off into the sunset? Maybe it’s time to be honest with yourself and those around you? Maybe it’s time to reach for the Moon? Take a magic carpet ride? Dream big? There is no limit to the possibilities.

Doing it for yourself…

As you probably know by now, this site isn’t about telling you what will happen, but rather giving you the tools to attempt to identify the themes for yourself. That’s the DIY part of the tagline. If you’ve been reading along, you should know how to find where the New Moon is happening in your chart. If you’re new to this site (welcome), duck across and check out this post before you go any further.

The position you’re looking for is 15 Sagittarius 07’, or thereabouts. This is the area of life that you’re being asked to expand, learn and grow through experience. It’s where you have the opportunity to push some personal boundaries.

This is the 10th house for me and by 10thhouse I mean it is exactly conjunct my Midheaven. To the degree. Therefore it’s also square my Ascendant. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about “self-care” and what I want to do – professionally – the things that will make my heart sing. I’ve been enrolling in some on-line courses to learn about book marketing and the business of self-publishing. It’s those things I’ll be setting intentions around this month. I’ll be writing them down with the Sagittarian spark of freedom and soaring dreams in mind. The sky is not the limit and boundaries are there to be leapt over.

The Moon is natally in my 1st house and rules my 5th, so as always my New Moon story will have an outcome in the 5th In order to be true to my Moon, the goals I’ll set for my career will have 5th house creativity in mind.

As for you? Find where 15 Sagittarius is in your chart.

  • How do the concerns of this house make you feel?
  • How would you like to feel about them?
  • What positive steps can you take over the next four weeks to minimise the gap between how you feel about this are and how you’d like to feel?

Now, let’s set our intentions. Think about the area of life you’re focusing on and set small achievable targets. Make sure that you do at least one thing towards this goal this month. If you’re unsure where to start, check out this post. Because we’re talking about Sagittarius, think about the big picture and pretend there are no fences in the way. You can plan the steps out next month when Capricorn hosts the New Moon.

The Whole of the Moon: Sagittarius New Moon

18661570_s

As I mentioned last week, there’s been some pretty random, seriously shitty stuff that’s been circling around lately.

If you want to place an astrological blame around it- something, incidentally, I don’t particularly like to do, there are plenty of candidates. At the top of the list was Mars/Pluto square Uranus, although Saturn is never too far away when there are lessons to be learned.

There’s also been a line-up of Scorpio planets squaring Jupiter. Who can blame us if it’s felt more difficult, of late, to keep the faith?

Speaking of faith, here’s something I prepared for last years Sagittarius New Moon…

The New Moon is Sagittarius is always about hope, spontaneity, optimism, faith and adventure. Wherever it falls in your chart is where you need an injection of these things. For that reason, this is one of my favourite New Moons of the year.

This is the opportunists New Moon.

Sagittarius is a sign that doesn’t mind a flutter and taking a risk or two to follow your dreams- whatever they happen to be.

The other thing with the New Moon in Sagittarius is that you aren’t afraid to look up and out, to take that leap. Maybe you feel you have outgrown your present situation? Maybe it’s time to take the reins into your hands and gallop off into the sunset? Maybe it’s time to be honest with yourself and those around you? Maybe it’s time to reach for the Moon? Take a magic carpet ride? There is no limit to the possibilities.

I spoke about wings
- You just flew


I wondered, I guessed and I tried-
You just knew


I sighed-
And you swooned


I saw the crescent
-You saw the whole of the moon

It doesn’t need to be difficult- it could be as simple as trying a new cuisine next time you eat out or, pick up a book on a different subject.

Sagittarius, for me, rules my Midheaven, my career zone. The degree of this New Moon, however, falls in my 9th.

The intentions I’ll be setting this month will be done with the Sagittarian spark of freedom and soaring dreams. The sky is not the limit.

Oh, and the song…it has to be Waterboys Whole of the Moonshows the absolute wonderous promise of Sagittarius. The lyrics are amazing. As always, all copyright to the artists. It reminds me of a balcony…and a man… in Darling Point on New Years Eve back in about 1986. I can’t remember his name, I vaguely recall that he was a muso, but I remember the song…and I still have no idea how my shoe ended up in the bowl of prawns.

The Whole of The Moon: New Moon in Sagittarius

magic carpet ride…

The Moon is in Sagittarius. This means that in less than 24 hours we will have a New Moon.

The New Moon is Sagittarius is always about hope, spontaneity and adventure- so even though this one squares and challenges all of my Pisces planets, this is one of my favourite New Moons of the year. At 21 Sagittarius, this one falls almost exactly square my Pisces Sun.

Sagittarius is a sign that doesn’t mind a flutter and taking a risk or two to follow your dreams- whatever they happen to be. Add in independence seeking Uranus turning direct just a couple of hours after and your dream might very well be that of freedom, or at the very least, the freedom to follow your own path- however wide that may be. Perhaps even the freedom to be the person that somewhere along the line you forgot to be.

The other thing with the New Moon in Sagittarius is that you aren’t afraid to look up and out, to take that leap. Maybe you feel you have outgrown your present situation? Maybe it’s time to take the reins into your hands and gallop off into the sunset? Maybe it’s time to be honest with yourself and those around you? Maybe it’s time to reach for the Moon? Take a magic carpet ride? There is no limit to the possibilities.

This time last year I was contemplating change- great big scary, hairy arsed change. I’d chosen it, so I thought that I could control it. The thing about change is that it can’t be controlled- not completely. How hard can it be?

The other thing about change is that it doesn’t necessarily have to be bad- even though it may often seem to be so. It’s the perspective that counts. Glass half full, glass half empty. To be honest, I don’t care- as long as the glass is filled back up!

This is the opportunists’ New Moon.

I was grounded-
While you filled the skies


I was dumbfounded by truth- You cut through lies


I saw the rain dirty valley- You saw “Brigadoon”


I saw the crescent- You saw the whole of the moon

How has it all turned out? Not as I expected- so far this year has had a lot of ups and a few seriously upsetting downs, but it’s been one amazing rollercoaster…and I’ve never been able to resist the adrenaline rush of the rollercoaster.

What about you? Do you have planets or chart points between 19-23 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces? In particular personal planets or the Ascendant/Descendant or Midheaven/IC? Naturally, the tighter the orb, the more likely you will feel this one.

If you haven’t done so already, the New Moon energy will be with us for about 12 hours after the New Moon itself. Use it wisely to set your intentions or wishes.
