Sagittarius New Moon 11th December 2015

It’s time to infuse ourselves with the hopeful and exuberant New Moon in Sagittarius energies!




Sagittarius is an energetic optimistic sign. It’s the truth seeker archetype, full of passion and faith in life. There’s a sense of limitlessness with Sagittarius.

New Moon is a fresh start, time to set new intentions. This is a wonderful opportunity for new beginnings. We are being sparked up! As it is Sagittarius, it’s timely to discover (or continue to pursue) our destiny. One of the messages of this new moon is to broaden our perspective, take in more of the world. See the Big Picture, for our own lives as well as for our shared reality.

It’s time to dream BIG!!

It’s time to be faithful to our spirit and follow it’s promptings. Even when it doesn’t make sense to others.






Sagittarius is a fire sign and like all fire signs (Aries, Leo) it’s very motivated, independent and freedom loving. It’s on a mission to experience as much of life as possible. Constantly seeking new horizons, not just externally through travel and other outdoor activities, but also internally. Mostly by opening our minds to encompass new ideas and experience the love of learning and gaining wisdom.

So this new moon is an incredible opportunity that we can access so we can refine our vision/dreams/ideals for the future.



Aspects to this lively new moon

Uranus in Aries is trine (180 degrees) , adding an element of surprise, spontaneity and unique ingenious possibilities. Mars in Libra is sextile (60 degrees) , adding zest, energy, enthusiasm and exuberance. Jupiter in Virgo, the ‘ruler’ of this new moon, is making a square to it (90 degrees) . It’s reminding us to pay attention to details, and encouraging us to be practical.  but also can tip us into taking on too much. We may overestimate our energy, be careful how much you commit to.

Chiron is the wise healer archetype. It is in Pisces making the other square (90 degrees) to the new moon. This can help us to heal our limited or false beliefs. Chiron characterises our experience of alienation and woundedness. It represents the most sensitive part in us, our deepest hurts from childhood. It is the part in ourselves that we protect and hide. Yet when we stay present with it, we can experience Grace and are miraculously rejuvenated. We get to know ourselves more intimately and are more capable of experiencing new levels of compassion.






Pisces is about immersing ourselves in our ‘beingness’ (letting go of our egos) seeing the oneness in all of us. Focusing on what we have in common rather than our differences.

All these planets are working together to help us be aware of any beliefs/prejudices that block us from living in the world in a more open, tolerant and loving way. Can we allow others to have their beliefs, can we accept our differences? This is what is being asked of us.

It’s time to take that leap of faith!

This could be an ideal time to take a radical new direction in life (as long as we incorporate some caution too). We can decide to try the “impossible” even! Do our current goals reflect our personal truths?

Im possible

What would we pursue right now if we knew we would not fail?!!

Other influences on this new moon

Mars in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries. This combo of energies is very restless and erratic. It’s high energy. There can be a sudden release of tension, anything that’s been bottled up. So it’s a good idea to channel this energy, clean out your garage/garden/attic. Go on an extra strenuous hike or go to a more advanced yoga class.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces. This represents fantasy and reality, the gap between our everyday reality and our dreams/ideals. How do we handle our dissatisfaction and disillusionment? On the negative this can be felt as anxiety and confusion. On the positive we can constructively apply ourselves to birthing some of our dreams.

In other word we can redefining what is possible in our lives. This requires our participation, and a careful balance of risk taking and caution. Tap into the wonderful Sagittarius qualities: generosity of spirit, endless optimism, courage and openness to the serendipity of life.

Initiate something new, embrace the blessings available. Then use the Saturn energy to construct something solid and stable. At the same time, let’s remember to pay attention to our depths, our vulnerabilities (Chiron). Let’s embrace them and take them along for the ride.

It’s time to integrate more of our noble ideals into our everyday world. For ourselves and others. It’s too easy to give them up, to be cynical, to look at all the intense shocking events happening around the world and lose hope. The cosmos is asking us to be in our integrity, to open our minds, foster more compassion and be of service for the highest good.

Start a new vision board or ask a friend to join you in a brain-storming session, or sit in nature and visualise the best version of life that you can imagine. Look for mentors who are visionaries to inspire you. The world is full of them!






                   Happy New Sagittarius Moon. Blessings to all.
