Happy New Moon in Sagittarius! This Monday, December 18th, 2017’s last New Moon falls in the sign of the playful Archer, bringing with it seeds for optimism and joy. As always, the New Moon symbolize the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one, making New Moons an excellent time to plant your seeds for the future, and with today’s expansive New Moon, all possibilities are on the table. Fiery Sagittarius is a sign that burns bright with an unquenchable thirst for life, and as 2017 is coming to an end, the Archer is encouraging you to aim you arrow high, encouraging you to reach for your star.
It is, however, impossible to move forward as long as you keep living in the past. It’s time to let go of your old stories and everything that doesn’t serve you anymore, once and for all. What have you outgrown? What does not serve you anymore? Learn to forgive, surrender and let go, knowing that until you do, you will continue to relive your old patterns, making your painful past become part of our present and future. Shed your past like the serpent sheds its skin: all at once, and let go of everything that is stopping you from moving forward in the new year. Trust that it is your time to shine and the only one standing in your way is you!
Sagittarius is ruled by one of the heavens beneficiaries, lucky Jupiter, so if you feel like dreaming big, it’s the season. Grab the cord of glittering energy the cosmos presents you at this time and know that nothing is impossible if you’ve got enough nerve. One of the most admirable qualities of the fire signs is their fearless way of living life from their heart. They passionately follow their intuition, and simply go where their heart leads them. So, if you are usually the more hesitant or pragmatic type; draw in the positive energy of this New Moon, and let the passion of the fire help you to connect with your more open and adventurous side. Learn to seek joy and the meaning of the moment. Breathe in the optimism, embrace your potential, and aim for the moon!
Sagittarius is a visionary sign, so why not create a vision board and get creative. You’ve got this one life; how do you want to spend it? Dive in deep and get to know yourself. What are your dreams? What are you passionate about? Trust your instincts, then go out and make your life as bright and colorful as you can! There will always be those who prefer to live life differently than you, but if you listen to your heart and follow its path, you cannot go wrong. Your life is a blank canvas; make it your masterpiece. Place your energy where your soul can expand and grow, and quit everything that dims your inner fire.
Be careful not to overextend yourself though. Fiery Sagittarius can get a bit carried away at times, but introspection is also a requirement for this otherwise playful sign. Life cannot be adrenaline and adventure all the time; your soul requires some stillness too. Besides, Sagittarius is as committed to the journey inward as the one without. Our life is a sacred journey that we all must learn to interpret for ourselves, and considered to be the keeper of life philosophies, the Archer takes every chance it gets to dive into the Great Cosmic Quest.
Last but not least, make some space in your calendar for some self-love under this December Moon. This is the darkest time of the year in the northern hemisphere, and the new moon the darkest time of the month. Long nights encourage introspection, even during a busy holiday season. Run a hot bath, let yourself soften and get the winter chills out of your body. Take a couple of deep belly breaths, followed by a 5-minute meditation. Then, with a clearer head, pour yourself some nice hot tea and take time to journal it all out. Forgive, surrender and let go. This is a time for new beginnings. A new year. A new you. Remind yourself of how far you have come and congratulate yourself on your accomplishments. Set an intention to listen to your heart and to follow your truth. To never lose your curiosity and sense of wonder. To never stop learning. To make gratitude a daily practice and to pay attention to the little everyday joys. And, to always schedule time to show your love for those people that makes life worthwhile. They are what life is all about after all ♡
