The luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in fiery, mutable Sagittarius for this fresh start. The New Moon in Sagittarius at 3 degrees, is synched up with a wild card eclipse. This partial solar eclipse is Part I of II, with the next Total lunar eclipse, in Gemini, on December 10th. This stretch is about fighting for the big picture of what's possible. It's a significant moment to be alert and light on your feet!Taking Aim
There are four bodies (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus) in the sign of the visionary Sagittarius. This happens as the Moon's North Node (humanity's evolutionary direction) is also exerting a pull toward a more expansive view. Be encouraged at the New Moon, and breathe in the spirit of Sagittarius -- let it revive your weary soul, and bring the twinkle back to your eyes.
The enspiriting themes of the Archer are freedom, highest aspiration, wisdom, questing, travel, a global worldview, enlightened minds, kindred spirits, friend to all, holding truth above petty loyalty, gregarious friendships and togetherness (without being stifling.)
It's a Sadge stellium announcing possibilities and encouraging an incredibly energizing setting of your aim. It's time to seek out an inspired vision, one that is ignited by others also catching fire with ideas and enthusiasm. You become part of something bigger than yourself, while also sensing your unique mission, gifts to share.
Sagittarius is about fusion without necessarily knowing how it happens. Dots get connected, and what you're aware of fuses into a focused intention. And it's about being loyal to your own sense of what's true. Out of the emotional depths of Scorpio comes direct, fast and possibly furious realizations. You won't want to miss anything the muse and spirit send your way!Mars Riot
Looking at the New Moon chart, that's Mars there in Virgo, revving up an already physically on fire Sun-Moon combo. This Mars square at the New Moon/Eclipse can bring up intense frustration, irritability, or critical fighting. The square shows us where there are gaps between the vision and the reality.
And yet, the prescient wise eyes of Virgo, being activated by Mars now, gets on with it. If a situation is stuck, this Mars square could instigate more flexibility, or out of desperation, trying a different approach that is a surprise hit. It's possible, that with the eclipse, a situation that's been at an impasse, is scrambled and let loose. In the short term, things could look messy, and that's the mutable pieces flying.
Have faith and trust your instincts. Sagittarius and Virgo have a high-minded side, with devotion to ideals like contributing/serving, uplifting, healing, reviving, evolving consciousness, excellence, purification of mind, body and spirit. Look for ways to walk your talk because this has an enormously stabilizing effect! You feel confident when you're doing your best and living your values.
Keep in mind that Sagittarius is about moving forward, and Mars Virgo looks for a groove of effective action. The rhythm of your work life could clash with an overwhelming call to move, experience, learn, grow.
This eclipse/New Moon could be a time of sudden change at work, breaks for freedom, or many small changes to your routine that add up and feel refreshing. All this physical energy can cause you to break character, and be the catalyst you need to overcome inertia of mind, body or spirit. You might surprise everyone and like Forrest Gump, become a running Fool.Chaos and Stability
If there's blessed unrest at the New Moon, there's also a grand trine in
I highly recommend finding healing in a natural place. See how you can simplify and keep your mind from being overcrowded. There's a quiet strength to be found there, for those able to come down to Earth. Time alone, and away from all the audio and visual pollution works wonders! A few moments of settling down, grounding, each day puts you in touch with the resonance of contentment, earthly pleasure, sensual engagement with the Earth, creature comfort, affection. From this calm place, the dreaming can be connected to the authentic reality right there around you.
A lot of people talk about ascending, but the grand trine in Earth, is for descending. To re-inhabit your body, community, the natural world or shared public places -- like the occupy movement is doing. This New Moon may bring shattering surprises that show how much is wrong, against the passion of a vision for what could be. The sense of grounding and presence of the earth sign -- standing in that reality, no matter what -- builds character and is disarming to those that would undermine you. And to start where we are, with what we've got, and see how much we can accomplish! I hope it's enlightening and fortifying for you!
