Collective Energies:

This Sagittarius new moon arrives after a week of Jupiter in alignment with the Sun. Sagittarius connects us with the expansive side of life such as optimism, vision, and joy. It moves us towards discovering our ideals and expanding our sense of conviction. Healthy Sagittarius energy is full of faith and adventure, while the shadow side lends itself towards arrogance or bravado. I also notice a tendency towards over-consumption while appreciating the abundance so often experienced with Sagittarius.

While many may hail this as the luckiest new moon of the year, I’m dubious of that title. Like all zodiac signs, Sagittarius has aspects that aren’t so becoming and when not examined can become detrimental. Religious righteousness and superiority are the flip side of too much expansion into morality and truth. This new moon offers us expansion and vision as well as a warning against our own Messiah complexes, in particular, the United States.;)

Though I’m suspicious of building up Sagittarius too much, the planetary combinations imply this new moon can go one of many ways. The square to Mars and Neptune implies things could also be focused on our sense of divine will. When the planet of action (Mars) meets transcendence (Neptune), we come into contact with ego dissolution and a desire to connect with spirit. This combined with the more religious tones of Sagittarius could make things interesting for our magnification of the spiritual realm. (This new moon also occurs on 4th day of Hanukkah.)

The last full moon also had Mars energies as well as a recent Mercury Retrograde motion and with this new moon, Mercury begins its motion forward again. During this phase, we may notice more mental momentum after a phase of more intuition. When Mercury was seemingly moving backwards we have received hits on our vision and now the Sagittarius new moon gives us the capacity to channel it into inspiration.

Most likely it will be lucky for some and not so much for others; however, the Sagittarius new moon is yet another restart button to follow more of our truth. Harnessing these abundant energies is only a matter of ease and alignment while staying attuned to your own vision.

 

Everyday Ritual Recommendations:

BE // Try mindfulness meditation focused on your heartbeat, as Sagittarius and Jupiter rule the heart.

DO // Plan a trip, just kidding, or not. This new moon is also a great time to revisit your dreams and goals, create some space for visioning. Perhaps try the Happiness and Inspiration Ritual Kit to help with expansion and understanding. 

READ // Travel, religious, or philosophy books connect us to the high ideals of Sagittarius.

WATCH // Travel shows or extreme sports documentaries could be a fun way to connect your adventurous side.

My friends, this by far is probably one of my most anticipated monthly overview articles. I remember back in 2019, looking at my ephemeris for February/ Spring of 2021 thinking, “I can’t wait to see how the world evolves and what comes of the stellium of planets in Aquarius”. At the time it wasn’t quite clear just exactly how the world would gather together and make strides towards unity. Two years, a world pandemic, major economic and political crosses later: here we are. It’s safe to say our work is cut out for us. If there is one thing astrology has taught me, it’s that you have the ability to create...
