Sunday we have a New Moon in Sagittarius, sign of the archer; seeker of truth. He is shown as half man/half horse, shooting his arrow into the heavens. Sagittarius represents our high ideals and journey toward spiritual connection, and following our heart. The symbolism of half horse half man links body and soul, heaven and earth. Human means divine man(or woman) Sagittarius is the teacher, the guru, the eternal student/ world traveller, ever on a quest, ever seeking the deeper meaning in life. Sagittarius contains the galactic core, center of our universe.
This 'Scorpionic' process (of letting go) can trigger apprehension, survival fears, even paranoia, and a resulting tendency to cling even harder to what is familiar.
Yes, 'what you resist, persists!! '
That eclipse energy (see last post), is still rippling through our energy fields, and being re-activated right now by several planets currently moving through Scorpio. This means any residual pain, fear of change etc, and/or personal crisis it triggers... continues to initiate us into a new level of personal mastery (Saturn).
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!!
As the ruler of ruler of Scorpio is Pluto, this current Scorpio dynamic resonates with the long running Uranus-Pluto square that I have gone on and on about. This is the astrology that is influencing very nearly everything these days, ranging from global events to the most intimate affairs of your private life.
There is help coming. A reprieve is at hand. Tomorrow (whew!) the Moon joins the Sun in expansive, joyful Sagittarius, the sign of the cosmic adventurer.
There is a wave of Grace and Mercy (and healing) headingh our way as both the Sun and Moon in Sagittarius link to Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, the other more spiritual sign of the zodiac.
This energy can move us beyond the limiting beliefs buried so deep in our psyche (Scorpio) into a more free and expansive sense of self (sagittarius).
Add FIRE (Sun Moon in sagittarius) and WATER (Jupiter in Cancer)and you get a rainbow: a wonderful creative expression of emotion and inspiration! Let this be the start of a beautiful adventure to find the gold at the end of the rainbow. Let it shine!
Jupiter in Cancer says 'Honour your feelings. Honour mother earth. Listen to your heart.
Lilith, archetype of the suppressed feminine (now arising in Cancer sign of the mother), says: 'Get with the program.' Create a sacred space for your female side.
New Moon in Sagittarius says: 'the time is right. It's never to late to begin. '
Until one is committed
There is hesitancy, the chance to draw back
Concerning all acts of initiative (and Creation)
There is one elementary truth
The ignorance which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
That the moment that one definitely commits ones self
Then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
That would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision
Raising in one’s favor all manner
Of unforeseen incidents and meetings
And material substance
Which no one could have dreamt
Would have come your way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Do it now!! GOETHE
