On December 12 at 6:32 p.m. ET, the moon will disappear into the night sky, marking the beginning of an exciting Sagittarius New Moon. The lack of visibility of the moon should not be underestimated, as it marks the opportunity for profound renewal, restoring optimism, and ushering in a major shift in energies even in the face of challenges.
This moon is the perfect time to start fresh as we head into a new year. Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth and abundance, the message coming in now is all about change, the pursuit of truth and transformation. However, it will be important to practice restraint if we wish to see our visions and goals come to fruition. This cosmic cycle will offer the opportunity to rediscover who we truly want to be and have the courage to embrace new beginnings.
Like the “Archer” point that arrow and focus on intentions based on your deepest desires, your own truths, becoming fearless and most important...trust your inner vision. As the Wheel turns towards Winter Solstice, it is a powerful time for rituals and practices that focus on letting go of the old to make way for the new. Magickally speaking, Sagittarius is associated with fire, making it an ideal time for rituals involving candles or bonfires. Fire symbolizes transformation and purification, making it a potent tool for releasing stagnant energy and inviting in positivity. Use this energy to create a sacred space for manifesting your desires. Our beautiful Moon Goddess will help you tune into your emotional body, bringing balance as you move forth with intention.
As 2023 comes to a close allow this energy to be the start of something new, a new starting point in your life.
Blessed be, my lovelies
