This New Moon is happening at 1° of Sagittarius and will be most potent for people with personal planets or the ascendant at 0° to 4° of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) as well as 29° and 28° of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). Being out of eclipse season, this New Moon is a great one for intention setting particularly in regards to deepening your connection to spirit and your empathy, philosophical pursuits, publishing, sharing knowledge and higher learning. In my practice, the purpose of astrology is to give us the ability to see the divinity in the shifting circumstances of our daily lives to help us surrender to what we cannot change, the courage to change what we can, and the wisdom to know the difference. If you are interested to know what part of your chart will be impacted by any transit, you can book a reading with me.

This New Moon is a bright spark of optimism for the future and spurs us to seek a new truth in the aftermath of eclipse season. As Jupiter ends its ruminations of its retrograde cycle, it stations direct in its home sign of Pisces and gives way to an ‘Aha!’ moment. This realization plants a seed within us, growing into a desire to seek philosophical understanding through an exploration of our connection to the emotional and imaginal waters of the collective dream. 

The brilliance of this transit may leave us blinded to the reality in front of us as our dreams and hopes for the future are so vivid we can almost taste and smell them. A new faith is born and now requires us to nurture it through action. To quote a verse from The Bible, James 2:17 “Faith without works is dead.” This work could be taking the first steps to build your dream business, to find a counselor, to enroll in a graduate program or to move to a foreign country, but first you must have the faith in your vision of the future to follow through. Mutable energies are particularly potent this month. When expressed positively they can do their works with versatility and adaptability, however, without grounding them within a goal they can also be scattered and restless.

While this Sagittarius New Moon can be archetypically understood as a preacher, philosopher, student, or wanderer, seeking outside of itself for universal truths, it can find friction with its feminine counterpart Pisces which prefers the empathetic connectivity of our shared inner world and its wisdom. It is this Piscean inner ocean that must be plunged into in order to bring its pearls to the surface. Neptune melds with Jupiter in already permeable Pisces which left unchecked with the unbridled optimism of Jupiter can lead us to pursue the high of ecstatic union with the Godhead like a spiritual addict. The Fish are sensitive to what is within their waters and this moon cycle it may be difficult to determine whether the waters are polluted or not. 

As we seek universal laws, we may find ourselves gathering information in an attempt to assimilate it into our framework of belief. With a lack of clarity or focus and a deep desire to uncover hidden truths, we may be quick to jump to conclusions that fall in line with our internal biases. To echo Terence McKenna and his workshop “Search For The Original Tree Of Knowledge”, the feeling of having a true model of the universe may lead us to believe our conclusions without scrutiny and to preach them dogmatically. We must learn to humble ourselves enough to not demand closure from the universe and sit with the messiness of the mystery. 

Thank you for taking the time to arm yourself with the knowledge of astrological energies. It is my hope that my forecasts help you be empowered in moving in harmony with the planets, instead of feeling at the whims of the transits. Astrology can help us learn how to ride the waves of our transits instead of being bowled over by them, taken into the undertow.
