New Moons are a time when the Sun and the Moon come together (making a conjunction), and a time to set an intention and goal for the new emotional cycle ahead.

The sign of Sagittarius

Mutable quality or mode

From 22 November until 21 December 2019 the Sun occupies the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. Sagittarius has a Mutable quality or mode which signifies the end of seasons, when the weather is in flux. This Mutable energy represents flexibility, versatility and changeability. For Sagittarius, imagine the need to be on the move in some way either physically or mentally.

Fire element

Sagittarius is also one of the signs associated with the Fire Element concerning optimism, enthusiasm, inspiration, warmth, passion and intuition. Some keywords for Sagittarius include: adventurous, freedom-loving, philosophical, outgoing and restless. Sagittarius also corresponds with being exuberant, open-minded, having an interest in higher learning, being visionary, and an explorer seeking meaning, growth and improvement. The focus is on the future and its potential, and broadening horizons through geographical or philosophical journeys.

Planetary ruler Jupiter

Sagittarius is ruled by the planet 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 illusions and squandering resources.

At the time of this New Moon, Jupiter is winding up his one year stay in his home sign before moving into realistic Capricorn on 3 December 2019 so make the most of this last gasp of beneficial energy to expand and grow. 

Planetary aspects at this New Moon

Jupiter trine Uranus

Jupiter makes an out of sign trine to Uranus in Taurus at this New Moon, expanding freedom, excitement, liberation and breakthroughs, possibly around the areas of travel and study.

New Moon inconjunct Uranus

The Sun and Moon both inconjunct Uranus, encouraging risks, changes through making adjustments and the breaking down and breaking up of predictable, steady routines and existing conditions.

Mars opposite Uranus

Action planet Mars in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus too at the time of this New Moon, heightening the potential for sudden, unexpected changes to the Earth such as volcanoes and earthquakes. The unearthing of hidden matters may also occur, which may be surprising and even shocking, along with sudden happenings which seemingly come ‘out of the blue’ and hit us like a lightening strike.

This is also a good time to put your energy into being inventive and original, possibly using technology to effect change.

Mercury trine Neptune

Use your mind (Mercury) to be imaginative and creative (Neptune), transcending mundane reality and connecting with the divine. Meditate on what it is you would like to manifest as the New Moon is seeded.
