It is officially a New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, 2014 at 7:32 a.m. EDT
With this New Moon we have a significantly potent new beginning. With the Sun and the Moon having just entered the first part of Sagittarius in the early morning, it really speaks to the symbolic nature of how this New Moon is very much oriented towards brand newness.
This is a time that sets the stage for the building of energy for the next two weeks towards the Full Moon. With this newness, of course can come endings which always lead to new beginnings.
This New Moon in Sagittarius really has a lot to do with what direction you want to go in. One that is meaningful and purposeful. It can be a very philosophical time and a great time of learning. The experiences you are going through around this New Moon are meant to teach you how to choose your direction with greater intention.
How you approach things and react to things is a very important consideration now. With Mercury in Scorpio in harmony with Mars in Capricorn, there can be tension that needs to be worked through, especially with higher ups. This tension could notably lead to a need for improved communication. It’s a time to speak honestly and know that your approach can have a powerful impact in turning the energy around. Remember that much of life can be 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react.
With Jupiter in a bit of a tough connection with Mercury, this speaks even more clearly to how we need to choose our words wisely. If someone is being overly dramatic, or being a bit overbearing, especially those strutting their power in leadership positions, this is a time where your words can powerfully shift the direction in one way or the other. You can harness the courage now with the help of Mars to bring forward your right to clarify yourself in an honest way. This is not a time to butt heads, this is a time create a meeting of the minds. To speak honestly to create the transformation in the situation you want it to go in. The positive direction is your best choice of course. Clearer understanding is the intention. This is especially important in business goals and career related matters.
This is a time to temper your feelings with logic and to allow yourself to not get drawn into other people’s drama. You can be the voice of reason and bring understanding to a situation.
In more personal relationships, some will express their feelings due to a tug of war, which can ultimately be the catalyst to more open, healing and closer relationships. Communication is key. Others can’t read your mind, or your wants or expectations, so in order to smooth things over it is essential to speak up. Kindness and compassion can go a long way. Being sensitive to others feelings helps build stronger bonds.
This New Moon speaks to the wheels turning either way, and it has so much to do with your approach and your intention. The kind of energy that you project is the kind of energy that grows. You have the power to empower a situation by bringing the light, positive side to the forefront and be the example that shifts the energy around towards solutions.
How you act and react really does reflect who you are. How you handle situations as a reflection of your core intentions is big now. Ultimately, all situations we are faced with are tools for learning that help us grow more into who we can become. Ensuring that your choices reflect your values shows that you know who you are as a person and are able to be in alignment with the direction you envision for yourself.
Situations in life can be tough of course, and you can't control other people's reactions and their perceptions, but you do have the power to choose your reactions and your perceptions.
Close to this New Moon as well, before and after, the Moon connects harmoniously with Saturn then later in the day with Venus. Being grounded and making responsible choices as part of the new energy you intend to bring forward matters a lot. As well, as you step into your new journey having a close connection to your self-worth and putting love into what you create matters immensely.
Remember that you really are the artist of your life. You get to mix, blend, merge and manifest the energy that you are presented with your own energy. Bringing your own energy, your own consciousness to situations is the power you have to create the change you want to see. You are a very important part in the picture that is painted, metaphorically speaking.
Keep your vision and your dreams at the forefront and you will be able to resolve situations. The arrow of Sagittarius gives you the power to direct and go far. You get to teach by example and learn through your experiences, and create the balance that allows you to move towards the bigger and better things in life that matter to you. This is a time for fresh, wise energy to begin anew.
