New Moon in Sagittarius

The New Moon in Sagittarius on November 23rd feels like a breath of fresh air…and there is indeed something about the shift in energy that feels like we’re coming up for air - in many ways. Sagittarius is a fire sign and represented by the archer and ruled by Jupiter, the planet of blessings, optimism and abundance; it is a beautiful season to be in after spending several weeks swimming in the depths of Scorpio’s intense, alchemical and under-worldly waters.

What have you learned about yourself recently? What did Scorpio season teach you about what was no longer serving you and the vision you have for your life? What did you let go of that has created space for something new – something more aligned with who you are and what you desire?

This new moon feels very empowering. It’s like we have our own personal cheerleader, and we’re being inviting to work with its fresh, fertile energy and believe in ourselves.

If you’ve been moving through a lot of heaviness lately, or it feels like you’ve been stuck in a circumstance or pattern that you know is no longer supportive, allow this new moon and lunar cycle to breathe some fresh life, excitement, hope and inspiration into your body. Things are always more than they appear on the surface. Life is mysterious, much happens for us behind the scenes. And, with that being said, we also have a LOT of power when it comes to working with the energies of our lives.

Ways that you can work with the energy of this New Moon in Sagittarius:

  • Light a candle to invite warmth and the nourishing, powerful energy of fire into your home and connect with your own inner flame
  • Work with yellow, orange and red crystals (i.e. citrine, red jasper, carnelian, tiger’s eye – trust what you’re most drawn to)
  • Move your body in a way that feels good to you (it might feel really expansive and empowering to focus on movement that allows you to use/feel the strength of your legs and lower body)
  • Do some gentle self-exploration using the following journal prompts:

Do I believe that I can create the life I want to live? If not – what beliefs/stories stop me in my tracks?

What does independence mean to me? What do I want it to look like?

In what areas of my life have I been playing small, or continuing to stay stuck in patterns/cycles that feel old? (If you need support with this prompt, you might want to ask yourself – what areas of my life have felt frustrating, stagnant and weighed down lately?)

Imagine a world in which no one else’s opinions, ways of doing things or judgments existed…what would I do if I felt free to follow my own inner guidance, without questioning or doubting myself?

What’s one thing I can do differently/take action on, starting tomorrow, that will shake up the energy and allow me to feel more connected to my goals, desires and personal blend of magic?
