On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative, reflective and quiet mood.
This makes rich soil for hacking your inner/higher self/subconscious. Get that 95% of your brain on board for future goal setting and planning.
Write down what you’re releasing, then burn as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions/affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in SAGITTARIUS. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other facing off in polarity.
To take it a step further draw or make a vision board for your plans, make sure you add a fruition date. Add potency by fuelling your vision with strong emotions, work in the positive rather than from a place of lack, fear etc. Seeds you sew in the mix will most likely germinate so make sure you cultivate exactly what you want.
Focus on areas and approaches that SAGITTARIUS rules, such as;
- “I easily know and adhere to my personal truth”
“I’m easily honest with myself and others”
“I easily feel inspired to create my personal vision”
“I feel free to be me in every area of my life”
“I am comfortable with and respect the freedom of others”
“I easily travel to and explore places that call to me”
“I easily find myself expanding my horizons with enthusiasm and excitement”
“I easily find the humor in all situations”
“I easily understand the bigger picture and connectedness of all things”
“I’m open to new people, places, and ideas”
Sagittarius is a fire sign symbolizing the call to and spirit of adventure. The modern gypset falls under the sign of the seeker. Expansion of our mind and concept of self by physical travel to unfamiliar locations and cultures. Intellectual and conversational travel is also key. Armchair philosophizing is appropriate. Take your mind off mundane detail and to do lists, and lift it to the sky while staying grounded. Sagittarius needs her feet on the ground to get her best shot after all.
No nonsense Saturn lends a reality check and determination to create our vision based on authentic ideals. There’s a sense of commitment, responsibility, and duty to ourselves and our travel companions. How can you commit to your vision and growth, while lighting the path for others? How can you consolidate?
Changemaker Uranus suggests this is an opportune time to create change. Usher in new winds to fill your sails. Where is it you see yourself in the next 6 months? Set your sights on that, hoist the sails and let’s make it happen. In order to do so, you’ll have to do things differently. Venus in the mix smooths over any awkward spots. Sagittarius is the most interpersonal of the fire signs making her a team player. We can accomplish more by inspiring others to walk the path with us.
An easy flow to the North Node in Leo suggests destiny is calling. Be yourself, shine and share your open heart. Get creative!
If you know your birth chart, the ‘house’ or area of life this new Moon falls in indicates the area you should be focussing your intentions on.
