Sagittarius New Moon – November 22, 2014
The New Moon forms at 00 degrees, O7 minutes Sagittarius, at 4:32 am PST on November 22, 2014. Tonight we say goodbye to Scorpio. The last degrees Scorpio almost always contain a kicker of some sort. There’s a sting at the end of the sign. Sometimes it’s a gentle reminder and sometimes it’s a world changing event as it was on November 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was shot. It’s always a dramatic and even mystical parting of the ways.
Tonight as we move into Sagittarius, we leave the Underworld, transformed by our journey through the occult energies of Scorpio. Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, King of the Gods resides atop Mount Olympus. He stands in direct contrast to Pluto, Lord of the Underworld and ruler of Hades. Spirit is released as it emerges in Sagittarius from the long but necessary dark night of the Soul experienced in Scorpio.
It is time to step into the clear cold air. It is time to turn our gaze toward the stars and to chart our course in alignment with our beliefs and ideals. 00 degrees is a very powerful position. (Just ask the British Royal family. They have 00 degrees strategically placed in almost everyone’s chart). This is Genesis – the creation point, the zero coordinate on the axes representing the conjunction or collision of matter and spirit. It is the point of incarnation where life begins. The next six New Moons will be at either 00 degrees or 29 degrees of their respective signs. These upcoming New Moons will be extra powerful seeding points and will extend through March 20, 2015. This will be a significant and prolonged period of initiation during which we will be required to fine-tune our energies and intentions.
We can’t drag everything we’ve been carrying around for the last three years with us into the New Year. It’s time to streamline. We need to choose, decide, and choose again – what will stay and what will go. We really don’t want to be taking any sloppy, half baked, renegade bullshit into 2015 if we can help it.
Sagittarius is where we assemble and connect our thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and ideals into a life’s philosophy – a way of being. It is where we collect the useful and diverse information and perceptions gathered in Gemini and catapult them across the zodiac’s wheel straight to the center of our galaxy, which lies at 27 degrees Sag. It’s a total act of faith. What do you believe? What gives your life meaning? Where are you in this vast galaxy – this even vaster universe? Do you feel connected at a molecular level to all the other life forms present here on Earth? Can you feel the “carbon-based” connection? Can you look at the stars and know your origins? This is what Sagittarius delights in doing. It’s time we joined in. The New Moon, Venus and the Sun square Neptune in Pisces creating favorable conditions to travel to distant realms of galactic feeling and thought and to return with wordless but significant and deep knowledge of what is true.
Just to make sure that we walk our spiritual and philosophical talk, Saturn will be moving into Sagittarius on December 23. And this is going to be big news and a BIG – NO – A HUGE CHANGE!!! More about this when it happens at the Capricorn New Moon/Winter Solstice on December 21.
Yes – yes, I know: I’m getting ahead of myself here! I can’t help it. I get excited. We have another Uranus-Pluto square to work through on December 15 and some conjunctions of the Sun and Mercury with Saturn in Scorpio in the meantime as he heads for the exit. And – oh yes – he’s squaring Jupiter in Leo right now too. So things are contentious and even a little dangerous around the edges… Yes, yes, be patient. We’ve done this before. No biggie.
Here’s the work: What do you believe? Do you have faith in your beliefs? Are your beliefs limiting or expanding your life? Do you have a vision? What does it include? What does it exclude? Are you living in limitation or are you living in infinite possibility? What is true now?
Till we meet again at the Full Moon on December 6 – dare to soar with the Sagittarius energies. There’s powerful medicine available when you commune with the Centaurs.
