On November 23rd at 2:58 PM PST, the Sun and Moon join forces in Sagittarius at 1 degree 38 minutes. The Sun begins its transit of this sign the day before the Moon arrives. This is a blessed time, as we have been through so much with the eclipse season in the signs of Scorpio and Taurus, we need a break. We could all use some inspiration!
Sagittarius is a Mutable Fire Sign. Mutable as it represents the last month of the Autumn season, and shows signs one day of Fall and another of Winter. This mutable sign is flexible and able to adapt to what lies ahead. Mutable signs are mental, having to change from one thing to the next, and learn the best ways to accomplish tasks. Sagittarians tend to be alone even in a crowd, unique, creative and full of energy. It is a powerful Fire sign, shooting for the stars with its creative inspiration. In the horoscope, this sign rules the search for meaning and knowledge through travel, experience, higher education and human interaction. It is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth, abundance, and philosophy.
With the New Moon we are setting new intentions. The avenue for moving forward at this time is to have a generous heart. To chase away fears with optimism. To find new ways to aim for a better life and make the moves to achieve that. This lunation cycle ensures plenty of energy and good will to move us to our highest goals. Those that have to do with finding a way to connect with our own guidance, and following it to our greatest success.
At this time the Sun and Moon trine Jupiter at 28 degrees Pisces. As Jupiter is the ruling planet of this lunation cycle, it benefits us all with a generous dose of positivity. It drives us to dream our highest aspirations and have the self confidence to achieve them. Acting with good intent and a cheerful disposition will attract benefits to you in a seemingly magical way! Being easygoing and tolerant, forgetting the past and letting go of other’s mistakes will allow you to forgive yourself with the mistakes you’ve made along the way. On this occasion you will enjoy making others comfortable and happy, just watch out that you don’t over do your generosity.
This year the New Moon arrives the day before Thanksgiving. It will set the mood, bring us much joy if we allow it. I have heard many speak of history and this holiday representing anything but peace and good company. I look at this day as a time of sharing, of family and friends, of all things good. Rather than a stressful day of disagreements, look beyond the veil to who we really are. One of many striving to live a good life, to love and care for each other. This is truly what the day is all about.
So on this beautiful occasion I recommend giving yourself a peaceful moment on the afternoon of the 23rd. Allow your mind to wander, to imagine what you are creating for your future. Do you desire more creativity in your life? This is the day to dream it into reality, whatever it may be. Do you wish to become wiser, to keep learning? This sign is all about that, as it rules higher learning, as in college. The Archer shooting his arrow is the symbol for Sagittarius as this sign is shooting farther and higher than most. They are independent creators, setting the bar for others to try and reach over. It is also represented by the Centaur, half man and half horse. The symbology denotes man rising from his lower nature.
Likewise, imagine yourself, rising from your lower nature, and arriving at your highest potential. Feel the fiery energy supporting you to act decisively and purposefully. After all, we are all drops in the sea of Spirit, equally important and loved by the Infinite. Believe it.
