Because we can't keep making the same choices and expecting the scenery of life to suddenly and magically change. Choose differently means braving the unknown, taking the path less trodden, living from pure honesty and daring to displease others. And for many of us, the path must be walked seemingly alone with those we think will be there for us, completely on another path. Strangers can be become allies when we realize that the stressful stuff we face is similar to their baggage or burden. Empathy calls us to aid those suffering, including ourselves.
The New Moon (Dec 2) in Sagittarius renews our faith in whatever power we choose to surrender to. God. The Universe. Love. Source energy. Our spiritual center. Without faith, how can we possibly brave the storm and live to tell the tale of what happened next. At this point, we're all watching to see how it will all unfold next.
Your next chapter is written by the choices you take. The new pathways you walk. The adventures you decide. Perhaps your new adventure is beginning to speak out and refuse to care what reception you get and what the consequences of your raw honesty will be. For some, it could be daring to leave the house more, while for others it's knocking on doors to offer services or skills. For all of us, the CALL TO ADVENTURE is here. We can repeat stories, stick to the familiar and safe routes, or we can go off the path laid out before us and cut a new way through the forest.
It's all a gamble now. But one thing is certain. You can't stay where you are, because you won't grow - so life is already re-arranging the pieces so that you can embrace a new setting, new scenery and a new perspective and point of view. Open your world by opening your mind...
As your sensitivity increases you will come to understand that it's actually your greatest strength. Adapting to the emotional ripples in the pond has kept you alive this long. You swim with the tide but when you feel it, you make a leap into another current or jetstream and off you go. Following your feelings is a major part of your path, this you already know. Just don't shy from the darker, heavier or sore emotions you may find you're still experiencing. These are actually gifts that will give you the impetus to climb higher, to seek the answer, to venture over the horizon, somewhere over the rainbow, in books, in schools, in any place where knowledge can be gained. A New Moon at the top of your Charts offers a chance to USE your insecurities and pains to access your true power. We witness your sensitivity and if you're courageous enough to share it, everyone opens up with you.
Running a marathon with a thorn in your foot isn't easy. Likewise, getting through life right now putting your usual perky optimism smile on things while feeling a deep down feeling of an unresolved emotional past (or current family dynamics) is tough. But that's the road you now walk. A New Moon in your sign always heralds the potential for a new beginning, a new venture. You try something new. Play in the mirror and see if you like what you see. Work on your body. Get outside and get more fresh air. Climb up high or take an elevator to the top of a building and remember that perspective is everything and new scenery really does refresh your soul. Whatever hurts is no doubt connected to things that happened way back when, so it's hard to understand the motivations and meanings behind it all but you have one thing on your side - the present. Being a free spirit means being able to accept everything this Moment offers you. It's your choice whether to relive the past to hurt yourself again or relieve the past by clearing up the mess left behind.
The New Moon is your reminder, a journey through the skills you have and can use to get ahead. You'll notice others around suddenly doing, having or being what or bhow you want to be or have. It's weird but fun to witness. YOur values are changing so fast these days your lists of what you'd NEVER do again may have shifted to become more open and adaptable. At the end of the day you know you are a survivor and will go down in the family history books as one tough and intense human who was not to be messed with. But we can also get to see now, if you'll let us, the gifts you carry ibnside. Your beliefs and rituals. Your magical thinking. Your religious ideas and views. Your knowledge and wisdom from what you've read and what you've actually lived through. You are a walking encyclopedia of knowledge that can be put to use. TO use it and access it now, you must have the self worth and self esteem to know that you are worth it and that you have it because you deserve it. it's yours. You can't take away what's in our 2nd House. Chiron in your 5th is simply the tear in your heart that still aches sometimes. Weeping helps. Then reminding yourself how much others need you too.
It's a week to get things sorted out. From cleaning up your diet to your To Do list what still sits around you'll find this New Moon affords you the chance to see what's wrong, ineffective, shaky, broken or plain useless. Remind yourself that just because something is 'off' doesn't mean it's time to give up on it, perhaps it just needs a new coat of paint? When the details get you down, bring faith back that even delays and imperfections are all there for a reason you can't see from your vantage point alone. Job wise, doors open if you cash in on the luck that's around you - all if takes is sprerading your wings and hving the courage and risk-taking abilities to knock on closed (or even barred) doors. It's so healing now to forget differences and see the world as one big giant playground where most people by now are injured on some level. Be universal and don't let religious or spiritual or politic differences separate you from others, or from your own center.
Opportunities to play, to frollick freely and really get into some indulgent pastimes. This isn't your low fat week, or sugar free, this is your new moon Lets Try a Bit of Everything week and why shouldn't I, week? The New Moon offers romantic melodies and trips, to exotic kisses or promises of love that we don't yet know are real or now. Renewed vows or the searching for more romantic escapads to keep you feeling special? Attention is on you when you are letting your hairy down, being more casual and not being afraid to share what you know and live with a principle. It's honorable and that's how we all will remember you, Leo. The rub this week is this intimacy issue, the trust thing, the forgiveness thing and the boundary thing. You have to figure it out by heating the call or your soul and nothing else. Some harsh truths and issues, most in fact, can begin to heal the moment they are accepted. Trust yourself, and shine with love in all you do, and healing trust gets easier and easier.
Risk letting others closer to you by revealing some home truths about where you have come from and what has happened to you on life's long road. Yes, that includes the less savory aspects of your past. Sometimes just telling your story is enough to being light to dark places and perhaps even some humor when you realize how crazy your story has been up until now. The New Moon is about finding a sense of home that isn't stagnant, isn't controlling, isn't cramped and is full of the sharing of knowledge, humor and adventure. Who says you need to get stuck at home now? If anything, evolve your concept of what emotional safety is. Honesty points the way but it doesn't always mean others will want to listen or hear you. Chiron in your 7th still trips you up when you let others hurt you instead of seeing them for what they truly are - mirrors to your pain, and button pushers who remind you of where your insecurities are still being allowed to ruin your good mojo. Self-care so that you can get back to being there for others without losing yourself.
The wiring in your brain is aided by this New Moon helping you to turn your light back on with more information, questions that lead to answers and the sudden appearance of humorous situations and stories you end up playing a role in. Look around you - life isn't all dark and gloomy, it's all a matter of perspective. There is a cosmic joke in everything, no matter how dire. Probably the punchline being we're more than our physical bodies and brains. Tell that to your aches, pains and other strange physical symptoms and sensations, right? You know by now that fixating on problems doesn't heal them. You'd be better these days using the power of your mind and that good old fashioned Positive Thinking as a way forward instead of letting what is hurting or unhealed or unfixed, plague you with nightmares or daytime trauma. If you can, take new routes around town. Go to parks and sit in locations you've never been. Take in the view. Somehow, in those moments you'll find your mind calms, opens and you'll glimpse a solution or at least feel brighter and the pssibilities on the road ahead. Don't fake a smile, just look for things that make your heart grin.
Anything old haunting you will linger around and come back to find you if you don't face it. A New Moon in your 12th can either remind you of emotional debt you still carry (where hurt has been separated from the original moment it was inflicted causing a distortion in the present). So it's a good time to sit and pray, whether you're religious or spiritually inclined or not. This is a highly sensitive time where you could feel super-inflated with feelings of boundless possibiity, or weighed down with shoulds youll never be able to deliver on. Have you overpromised? Dreams are activated now so try and remember them for some psychic messages you wouldn't get anywhere else. In fact, turning in and tuning into your insides is essential now to keep a sense of sanity and balance. You need a pit stop to restoke the fires of faith within you. SOmetimes you get too heavy and serious and this Moon is a reminder to allow for a comeback - of a silver lining and a minor or major miracle to show you that Good is still working in your world. COmmunication continues to threaten your peace when you build walls instead of allowing your vulenrability to connct you to others who are just as raw as you are.
Sagittarius New Moons are always a great adventure for your sign of all, Aries since it activates your solar 9th house of New Horizons. You're invited, encouraged and actively supported by the Universe's luminaries, to provide you with the energy and impetus to get things started. Very great things. But things that must make their first steps, and then to learn to walk alone. Ideas. Books being written. Ideas being taught. Information being learned. People have to go new places, do new things, and put themselves in "foreign" environments to really get to discover our own Truth - that life has a meaning that we assign it and can find meaning in any event that speaks of a Bigger Story, an unspoken provmise of more. You'll not settle. You'll remain open now, and you're encouraged to, so that you'll oak up as much knowledge around you so that you can make sense of things a lot more and with this understanding then teach others to move towards the Light and release Fear.
The Sun and Moon collide in your 8th House in upbeat Sagittarius. A strange combo that puzzles us as well as gives us hope (how can a sagittarius moon give us anything else). The downsides I guess you'd rather hear first off. A feeling of depleting or destroyed hope and faith. A switching loyalties with certain people or thinkers, sides of teams. The upside is that you can experience a profund truth when you see your old beliefs shattered in a moment of true insight. Shattering means a shift, a jarring tectonic plate move that reminds you that nothing is permanent to quit worrying about anything that's not before you right now as you then rob the adventure (sagittarius) of hope which actually does count for a really high % if what 'luck'really is. This New Moon is ruled by Jupiter so think of that in terms of 8th House expeirences. They become a bigger deal. There can be a lot more of it. It all has something to teach you and you'll learn a new skill. Embrace the adventure and freedom of profound change.
There's always the change at connecting on a new level. To reconnect chains broken, and forge new alliances from the promise of past loyalty. Sagittarius may be carefree for it runs with the wild and the free, the untamed and the ever questing. Your relationships are always like that - you're either learning, teaching or searching and seeking. Together or apart. The New Moon reminds you why you just love the idea of a new romantic adventure, a new ally or road companion, whether platonic or frisky fun and free. Strangers really can become great teamplayers soon, or they could promise you the moon leave you hanging. Don't let new temptations lure you from the path towards healing your self-confidence, your abiliry to do the njob and your secret worry of hurting people or letting everyone down. Your efforts don't go unnoticed, and no one is perfect so drop your shoulders, you're not just a worker here.
This is the week to begin your Cycle 11 Psychic Life Blueprint -check out my book for more info- because it's the New Moon week that says to plant a mental seed into the field of all possibilities and see what happens. In Sagittarius, these seeds can scatter far and wide and can be larger than seemed originally possible. Now all dreams shouls b big. All balloons should arrive at their full glory and then burst as they consume more air. You're growing when you now stay a course to a particular future you'd like. Talk about it with anticipation, with assurity, with genuine faith, trust and also with a kind of gentle gratitude because you know this will eventually be your Dream Reached. Friendships matter, they always did and they always do for you. So look now for new faces who are open and friendly, people who can teach you things you need to know for the next chapter. Be open to expanding your circle. Hurts regarding your worth, as a person, as a member of a family, as an employee or unenployed, and sore spots also raw surrounding your ability to take care of yourself, provide for yourself or be able to find and use your talents, keep you trapped feeling a victim when all you need to do is start today and keep trying. Drreams are reached one idea and action at a time.
