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.

This is one of those Full Moons that has more to it than what meets the eye. As an astrologer, this is known as the "Cold Moon," and I'm really beginning to see why. When Gemini really gets to the depths of its core traits, it can be cold and calculating. Detached, and seeking only facts or information. But this isn't why I am connecting this to being a "Cold Moon." While Gemini's usual behavior is chatty and happy go lucky, the aspects between Pluto/ Saturn/ and Venus make this lunation extra, chilly. Venus is moving into a tight conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.

This month sure is action-packed. Expect this to be a Holiday season for the books my friends. The month begins with Jupiter making his annual move into to a new sign. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and optimism. Generally, Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches, and in Capricorn, it will be interesting. Generally speaking, Jupiter in Capricorn is considered to be in it’s "fall," or not necessarily at it's best. However, we're gearing up from December 2019- February 2020 to have a whole slew of planets in Capricorn.
