The luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in fiery, mutable Sagittarius for this fresh start. Seeing as it falls at 11 degrees Sagittarius, the pair form a radiant trine to the spontaneous charge of Uranus in cardinal fire Aries. It's a cosmic energy drink, and highly flammable holiday cocktail -- the spirit and swiftness of Sagittarius, paired with the sudden rush of the new with Uranus (Aries).
If you've felt overwhelmed with inertia, this could be the spark to act on what's naturally emerging. Aries is all about courage and new beginnings, and Uranus adds excitement, and the element of surprise.
It's a fire sign New Moon for spending time with the Muse, and having wakeful dream-adventures. Or you might want to be creatively hands-on with your visioning, and make a collage.
The set-up hints at expecting the unexpected like wild shock waves that come out of the blue. Your attention is your aim, or energetic arrow -- what is drawing your questing eye?
Fire has a way of burning off dead wood, and Neptunian fog. If you're one of the many who have been wading in your own emotional-psychic swamps, let a natural wildfire catch on, and bust open dormant seeds of possibility.
How? By being present in the moment. The dark of the Moon is time to engage directly with life, instead of with an intermediary. I like this from Rumi, passed on from Jamie Walters of Sophia's Children.
Stand still and be quiet. You're drunk and standing at the edge of the roof."
Uranus, the awakener, can serve up a wake-up call, like a splash of cold water after a long sleep.
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 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. You won't want to miss anything the muse and spirit send your way!
