Sitting at just past 26º of Sagittarius, sign of the centaur, this New Moon packs a real punch.
Exact at 22:30 PST on the 17th and 03:30 GMT on the 18th Dec, the planets are aligning to bring the kind of potential we don’t often get to see. It tightly conjuncts not only the Sun and Saturn, but also the Galactic centre. This is the point in space around which the whole of our galaxy pinwheels and turns. It’s a black hole of epic proportions (as big as 4 billion of our Suns to be a little more precise) which draws in everything in its vicinity.
It shows no mercy.
But it is also the source of life – the Galactic centre is the womb of it all, of everything we know and everything we ever will.
Its inhalation is the fierce destruction of everything that flies too close, but it’s exhalation gives new life, insights, upgrades and cosmic information to inspire and evolve at rapid speed.
There is potential for both at this New Moon.
1. Sow a Seed
Set an intention to carry you through the next six months (to reach fruition at the Full Moon of the same sign, at the end of May 2018). You don’t need to be specific or attach yourself to an outcome. Sagittarius is all about the journey, the adventure and the personal lessons picked up along the way.
Aim high and be ambitious! This is time to step into your mastery.
This sign’s ruler, Jupiter is making a poetic trine to Neptune at the time of the New Moon which expands possibilities and enlivens the imaginal realms so don’t be afraid to dive into the unknown. Dream, play and weave stories of possibility! The free-er you allow yourself to feel, the more space you create for the consciousness of the Divine to stream in, and exhale its cosmic intelligence into your personal world. This has the potential to be heavenly!
2. Give it Roots
Saturn is currently poised a 29º of Sagittarius, in a close conjunction to Sun and Moon. Its presence here brings earthly truth, responsibility and limitations to the table. Its heady dose of realism may put a damper on the heights of your dreams OR, maybe it will give them the roots they need to grow?
The point is that any seed you sow at this New Moon, right on the galactic centre-point, will need to be earthed in integrity and truth. Anything less and it will be weeded out before it has a chance. So if you’re starting off here with doubts in your mind, your wishes will wither. This alignment doesn’t have time for half measures – you’re either in, or you’re out.
3. Inner Excavation
This New Moon falls on one of the darkest days of the year – we are just hours away from the Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) so as high as we are being asked to soar, the depths of inner knowing also beckon. It’s not time to ignore the yearnings of your heart – this will only make them louder, so use this powerful lunar portal to set them free.
Ask yourself the questions:
- What is my truth in this situation?
- What do I feel?
- What is my highest possibility here?
- What is my my first step to get there?
Open up your field of potential as wide as you can at this time! Do this by believing that anything and everything is possible, and use Saturn’s influence here not to limit you, but to give you the lens to focus, and the bricks to build with. This planet is soon to change signs, entering it’s home of Capricorn in a couple of days so we’re all about to be put to work! Draw up the blueprint now.
4. Ground the Fire
At this New Moon, 7 planets are in fire signs (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus and Eris in Aries) so there’s a LOT of potential to burn. Burn out too fast, and non of this will be sustained – your dreams will turn to ash before the new year arrives!
So give them (and yourself) enough fuel.
One of the best ways to do this, is through grounding – connecting to nature, the Earth, and your bodily experience, here on the physical plane. With SO much high frequency, cosmic information streaming through the ethers, a lot will be shifting at this time whether you consciously engage with it or not, so ask the Earth to cradle you through it. You have all the comfort and protection you could need, right here, so use it!
This New Moon is a launch pad.
If you have been waiting for the right time to reach up to the next level, it’s here!
How brave are you willing to be?
How far are you willing to go, to follow your dreams?
