“This year’s Sagittarius New Moon on Dec. 17/18 has traits that ordinarily don’t surface till New Year’s Eve.
It brings awareness of time passing and chapters ending, even as it orients us to the future. It stirs optimism and possibility in the midst of somberness. And instead of resolutions, it encourages making concrete wishes that stand a very real chance of manifesting.
It’s equal turns philosophical, serious, retrospective, optimistic and gung-ho for love and money. All of that is imposing, purposeful and larger than life, almost as if the proceedings are expanding across all time/space. Which they might be, given that the Moon is directly at the Galactic Center.”
“With Mercury in retrograde, this continues to be, of course, an entirely introspective period of time throughout December. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon may serve to aid us in our process of self-discovery. This is, for the Sun and Moon in the 27th degree of Sagittarius, “A sculptor,” which reminds us that we are continually, out of the materials which come to hand, forging our own character. Marc Edmund Jones refers to “creative ability as the manifestation of self-consciousness in its maturity of realization,” and “the enlarged horizons which follow from an individual’s mastery of their own particular talents.” Indeed, it is up to each of us to unstintingly try to fashion the very best version of ourselves that we can achieve, knowing in our hearts that only this will truly satisfy us for the sake of the future.”
“There is a proclivity now towards open and honest exchanges, and seeing things from a more idealistic viewpoint. Now is a great time to rid yourself of any meanness, pettiness, or unresolved dramas. Let go of these types of misunderstandings as we now have the opportunity to create some major transformation, and healing. The Archer helps us aim and shoot toward our goals, but we must be open and receptive to it’s potent energy. With 2018 just around the corner, now is the time to benefit from forward moving, growth, and expansion. Allow the fires of the Sagittarius new moon to burn through any and all obstacles/ barriers. The arrow of the archer is in our hands, be sure to choose it’s direction carefully.”
