Every month’s New Moon is an opportunity to clear our space for healthy new influences to enter. It’s a monthly stopping-point to do an account of where er have been and consider where we wish to go. No matter what spiritual background you come from, participating in this monthly exercise can help you connect to your soul’s purpose and plan steps to get closer to it. Give yourself permission to connect authentically with yourself this month. Since we live in a Universe that is constantly moving, each month the New Moon is at a different place in our Cosmos allowing us a chance to plant different intentions throughout the year. A new cycle begins this time in Sagittarius which is about transforming our layers and growing into authenticity.
Be part of a collective event done by people all over the world! Write your list after 2:20 am EST on Friday, December 7th, 2018.
WORD FOR THE MONTH
Compassion, forgiveness, control, discretion, regeneration, tenacity, adventure, expansion, and intuition.
Happy New Moon in Sagittarius! This cycle we are being called to alchemically take what was learned and established in the last New Moon in Scorpio and transform it into something else with the Sagittarian energy of this New Moon. Last month we had focused energy of self-forgiveness, and this month this energy continues with the self, but that of self-transformation.
We all fall prey to our emotions, and sometimes must ask for forgiveness. The energy of Sagittarius helps us exercise forgiveness, but understanding as well, that not only do we mess up sometimes, so do others. Compassion lays in the midst of the lesson of forgiveness and provides beautiful energy as we end the year. We are given the opportunity to lift the veil of sorrow from our lives by exercising compassion. Find out what lights your fire, then give others the freedom to blaze their own. Fire is a source of life and should burn the way it’s needed for the individual. We are all genetically different, and therefore, have different fires.
Use this new cycle to work through the discomfort that comes from processing emotions, as it will benefit you tremendously. The Cosmos promise that there will be a rainbow after the storm. Sagittarian energy always brings with it the phoenix arising from the ashes. What needs regeneration in your life? Process your pain, whatever it is, by having compassion on yourself, and watch what type of beauty and perspective arises from that. This is a good starting exercise for us as 2019 will have a big focus astrologically on you, and your inner self, the process of individuation. In 2018 we have been working on our reaction to the outer world around us, but the focus is shifting internally in 2019. We all have to work through our layers and tap into our authenticity, as our future holds the need for us to do so.
The temperance card is often associated with the Sagittarius Zodiac due to its mutable energy of transformation. This month we have the ability to take something and change it—to temper it. Water and fire temper each other, they in a sense regulate/balance each other. Tempering occurs when we let opposites attract; just as negative electrons always look for positive protons. Since nature needs to regulate its polarities, we too need to find what balances us out. This New Moon cycle is urging us to have our feet in different places so that we aren’t stuck to one side. There is merit to this, as having an open mind to how other people live provides a much more loving space and environment for life. You may notice something you never saw before when walking in the shoes of someone else which is an additional exercise in compassion.
Aspects of life and society are changing all around us, some at exponential paces, because our world is in chaos. Bring that external change, internally. Sagittarius’ other symbol of the mythical half-man/half-horse who reflects our urge to rise above “animal instincts” can help us realize our true human potential. Earth is changing and is calling for us humans to live on a new vibration, and that’s why so many of us are being called to turn internally, find spirit, and live a more authentic life. Sagittarius is playing its part this cycle in this cosmic unfolding, and ultimately provides hope.
As always, a drop of wisdom - aim to forgive yourself for past mistakes instead of feeling guilt.
With light and love,
HOW TO MAKE A NEW MOON LIST:
Gather paper and a pen, pencil, marker or other type of writing utensil.
Review the focus areas for this month and begin to think about how they apply to your personal and professional life.
Write a list of what your hopes, dreams, goals, priorities, wishes, and prayers are for that moment. Typically no more than 10 is recommended. Be very specific, or extremely vague.
Review last month’s list and revise them on this month’s list, if necessary.
Place your notes somewhere safe and special to you. Some tape them to a window, under a lit candle, or leave them in their notebooks on their desks. Create the space that works for you. Leave it there all month until the next New Moon.
Allow and have faith in the power of inter-connectedness in our universe to manifest your list.
