For the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer, this sign has a Mutable quality or mode. The Mutable modality signifies the end of the seasons, when the weather is in flux. The Mutable energy represents flexibility, versatility and changeability. With Sagittarius, imagine the need to be on the move in some way, either physically or mentally.

Sagittarius is also one of the signs which is associated with the Fire Element concerning enthusiasm, inspiration, warmth, passion and intuition. Some keywords for Sagittarius include: adventurous, freedom-loving, philosophical, outgoing and restless. Sagittarius energy can also be exuberant, open-minded, have an interest in higher learning, be visionary and exploratory – seeking meaning, growth and improvement, having an eye on the future and broadening horizons through journeys.

The planetary ruler of Sagittarius is Jupiter. Jupiter represents faith, trust, opportunity, abundance, luck, confidence, courage, wisdom, our quest for meaning and generosity. The need for expansion can however lead to excess, exaggeration, over-indulgence and risk-taking, and the possibility of falling prey to squandering resources. At this New Moon Jupiter is his home sign of Sagittarius, amplifying the Sagittarian effects of going further afield.

Where do you need to go with this New Moon? Be inspired, follow your vision and your truth, and have faith in encountering the unknown.
