New Moon in Sagittarius :: Bright beginnings

November 23, 2022 at 4:57 pm Central—Wednesday’s hopeful New Moon in Sagittarius couldn’t be better timed. Like The Star card that follows The Tower in tarot, it’s the clearing in the storm we’ve been waiting for. This past month, many of us may have endured a culmination of tension in at least one prominent area in our lives. This promising new moon inspires us to believe in the future once again.

Just five minutes after the Sun and Moon join together at the first degree of Sagittarius, Jupiter—the ruler of this lunation—stations direct in Pisces, adding to the potency of new beginnings cultivated at this time. Jupiter rules both Sagittarius and Pisces. This New Moon forms an out-of-sign trine to its ruler and carries the Jupiterian seedlings of meaning, purpose and aspiration. It’s as if the constrictions of late were meant to take us to our core motivations and loyalties so that we could reconnect with our values and build from there. How many times have we discovered our dreams waiting for us in a dark night like a sleeping beauty waiting for us to breathe life into them? This is one of those times.  In fact, the next four new moons after this one on Wednesday will also fall on the first degree of their sign emphasizing the grand emergence of a total new beginning.

After the Moon connects with the Sun, it moves on to Venus. There’s a sweetness here with Luna’s movements. The way forward is to fortify your dreams by restoring harmony, connecting to others, investing in your inspiration and creatively out picturing your desires.

As mentioned before, this delightful lunation in Sag is ruled by Jupiter in Pisces.  Whereas Sagittarius wants to explore the outer world to find meaning which is then condensed into wisdom, Pisces ventures into the inner realms to connect to the light within. Beyond the inspiration, new beginnings, and the promise this New Moon offers, it also holds healing. Leonard Cohen might have been speaking from his Moon in Pisces when he penned, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”  We’ve experienced the cracking; now, we’re ready for the light. It begins with this lunation.
