The 2017 Sagittarius New Moon wants you to clear the decks, assess what’s truly worth shooting for, and forge ahead with renewed purpose, says Sandra Sitron.
New Moon :: December 18, 2017 :: 1:31 am ET :: 26 degrees Sagittarius
Wipe the sweat from your brow. Look around. The fight is long and hard. Take a momentary break and reassess. What are you fighting for? What do you believe in?
As you take a step back, get grounded and quiet for a moment. It’s okay to push. But have you been fighting with yourself without quite knowing why? Pushing yourself without knowing what you even want to achieve?
Sagittarius is the archer, pointedly asking— “What are you shooting for?” With this Sagittarius New Moon, the message is clear: you must align with your purpose.
So what IS your mission? Start by thinking about your values. What do you believe is missing, or under-represented in the world? What gets you fired up inside? And what do you need to learn to bring those values into action? Who do you need on an emotional level to become to be the highest version of yourself?
Clarity around these issues won’t come unless you ask for it. And so the first step now is to get clear about your goal. You can’t make the plan until you know the goal.
Typically, Sagittarius is an easy-breezy sign. Bouncy like a beach ball. With Sagittarius, anything is possible. But this particular New Moon is conjunct Schoolteacher Saturn, just before he marches into Capricorn. Saturn has been in Sagittarius for about three years, and it’s been a wild ride that has pushed many people to redetermine their values. What have you learned about yourself and your world over the last three years? Let this inform you now.
A shift is about to happen and we are heading into a new cycle of growth. Decide where you want to shoot your arrow. Fan the spark of your passion and help it grow into the expanding flame of a whole new direction …
Moon conjunct Saturn
A goat sits in a meadow.
The goat is quiet and a little bit dreamy. But soon he will start to climb. And when he begins, nothing will stop him. Can you harness that desire to ascend? The goat always yearns to go higher. He does it without self-flagellation or self-pity. He just gets to work.
But for now, be still. Sit and ponder. Don’t be hard on yourself or get trapped in a mindset of perceived isolation or self-doubt. Find alignment with yourself. Notice an urge to plan and brush it off if you can. When the moment is right, you will know exactly what you need to do to climb the mountain.
Moon conjunct Venus
Holding a feather.
The feather is associated with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Moon, and Saturn are currently all clustered in Sagittarius, the sign of higher awareness. Let your mind gently expand. Like a feather floating, you can sync into a higher state of being. Venus nudges you to receive. Receive a state of enlightenment through meditation and allowing yourself to feel all your feelings. Nurture yourself and let yourself drift toward greater clarity of mind, body and spirit.
