Sagittarius New Moon hohoho

Today is a New Moon in Sagittarius. In Greek mythology, Sagittarius is identified as a centaur: half human, half horse. This Fire sign is also the sign of the archer, seen aiming high: and is about big ideas, big learning and big visions. It can invoke in us a need for exploration, enjoyment and excess. Sagittarians don’t do small very well.

That’s because Sagittarius is ruled by the largest planet, Jupiter, that brings the expansiveness and joviality associated with this sign. Sagittarians don’t see obstacles, they see possibilities. This fiery buoyant nature gives a cheerful tone to this time of year…(the classic Santa Claus image is a very Sagittarian one…full round belly, red fiery coloured clothing…sharing gifts and abundance to all…with a hohoho.

So… a New Moon in this sign gives us a positive boost in the midst of a rather daunting and intense year. If you have an expansive vision, this is New Moon can help you shoot for it. Abundance abounds.

Sagittarius is also associated with truth and justice. Even though wikilinks is in trouble for telling the truth…it’s completely appropriate at this time (and always, actually)

Jupiter, currently sitting together with Uranus in Pisces, brings inspiring, spiritual visions (perhaps also somewhat surprising and new ones). Flashes of insight can balance the rather  bizarre and surreal goings on in the world right now. There may also be an urge to get drunk.

Lets hope rather than double vision…we have visions for a better world, a better us.

                   “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 of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, 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 assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”  Goethe
