The New Moon in Sagittarius on 12/7 at 12:20am MST brings our goals and aspirations to the surface and aims us towards spiritual expansion. This New Moon is heavily influenced by Jupiter as it aligns with the Sun and Moon in Sagittarius. This is what is urging us to expand our perspective on what could be. The energy might feel as if you have a deep desire to explore new goals and intentions for the upcoming year. This is the last New Moon of 2018 and with it comes the need to honor how far you have come and open up to what lies ahead.
This New Moon is guided by Mars and Neptune both aligned in the sign of Pisces. The energy of Mars and Neptune become one and fiery energy (Mars) is given to the deep waters of our soul (Neptune). Your intuition is heightened as well as your desire to explore the spiritual world. The word spiritual means something different to everybody, but it is an energy that goes beyond our physical/material world. It is our connection to something greater than ourselves. It is releasing our need to control our life and trusting that we are all cared for and supported, no matter what we experience.
It is easy to lose sight of this during the stress of the holidays or during our everyday life in general, especially in times of struggle. But that is the most important time to remember that you are loved and supported. The veil is thinning during this New Moon and your intuition is asking you to WAKE UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL!
This very esoteric energy is given a grounding force from Saturn as it forms a harmonious aspect to Mars and Neptune. Saturn is helping guide you on the right path and allowing for you to remain grounded and organized in your pursuits. Saturn has a bad reputation in astrology but that is mainly because he is the teacher and authority figure making sure you don’t take a wrong step, which may go against what your ego wants. When that happens, we meet struggle. BUT if you open up to Saturn’s guidance, it can truly be a wonderful experience.
Overall, this New Moon is going to be a juicy one! One that is calling for you to get in touch with your soul and trust your intuitive guidance. To create intentions for your growth and expansion, both on the physical and spiritual level.
Here is a New Moon Ritual that I like to use!
