This Sagittarius New Moon Offers The Bold Beginning You've Been Craving All Year

"This new moon is super charged by the solar eclipse, offering a fast track to fresh starts with a clear vision we've not had in a while." Discover our New Moonscope with Eleanor O'Leary

This new moon marks the end of the Gemini / Sagittarius eclipse season which kicked off mid-2020. Collectively, we've been reconciling the philosophical, bigger picture, F*** U attitude of our wandering Archer, with the fast paced, busy minded and highly communicative Gemini twins. Balancing travel (or lack thereof) and big ideas with the need for speedy answers, we've been on a voyage to find our own North Star of what we believe and how we form views with the information available to us.

Taking place hours after Neptune (planet of illusion, imagination and dreamers) goes direct in psychic Pisces, this new moon is super charged by the solar eclipse, offering a fast track to fresh starts with a clear vision we've not had in a while. 

There feels to be a synergy between Neptune's retrograde which started in June and the Sagittarius lunar eclipse which occured back in May. This energy reminds me of the phrase "multiple truths can exist at once"; perhaps you've been chasing goals which no longer align with your highest good, perhaps the swoop of the Great Resignation has promised greener grass, or perhaps what you needed was the chance to indulge in the frenzy of a dramatic escape all along. There's no judgement here, and you can find comfort in the fact that "the 'lost weekend' that turned into six months" is now over.

With the mists now dispersed, what did you learn about yourself, your ideas and your concept of reality?

Journaling for this new moon, remember that you are always but one decision away from changing your life. Sagittarius' storyteller is bolstered by alchemical Mercury, presenting you with the chance to write your new script from a higher perspective. 

Speaking of higher perspective, for those who are familiar with the concept of morning pages (a process of channeling information before your conscious self has the chance to fully wake up and stop you in your tracks), I woke up last week with the words CONSIDER WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU, BEFORE MOVING FORWARD ringing through my mind. I wrote it down in a dreamy scrawl, and while I know there is a personal interpretation, I feel this is a relevant message for this new moon, which offers so much promise, but might deliver in ways your rational mind can't imagine. Sometimes the answer to "where are we going?" is unrelated to where we have been, and uncertainty is the only certainty when so much is in flux. It's time for problem solving of the creative kind.

The possibilities are endless.

Finally, Venus, the planet ruling our values and valuables, conjuncts an equally material Pluto in Capricorn. Thanks to Venus' upcoming retrograde, this energy is with us until early 2022, and adds extra weight to what will be Pluto's winter years in this hard wearing and serious sign. There's always the temptation to tip toe into romcom territory with Venus, but this is one power couple not to be messed with. See this as a time to respect the essence of our desires. 'Slow dating' isn't a trend, it's a necessity if we want to form long lasting, authentic and transformative relationships which ground us in the aforementioned uncertainty.

Who do you want in your 'core four' and how will you together rise to higher powers?
