Trumpets are sounding. The New Moon in Sagittarius partial solar eclipse at 2deg 37min. is on November 25, 2011 at 1:10am EST. Have we got a beauty for you? It is fiery and has upbeat energy which brings us to another round of new beginnings and some endings. Those who have Sagittarius as a birth sign are filled with optimism, free-spirited, love adventure/travel and are straightforward to the max. They love to be the philosopher and explore the inner workings of themselves and others.
Ok now, let’s take a look at eclipses briefly. Past behavior patterns need to be shut down because that is what the eclipse is asking you to do. Old beliefs and patterns which block your growth need to be let go here. Other energies come into play at this time. For instance there is someone I know who has the eclipse conjunct Eros in the chart. This would be about heart matters that need to be addressed and become the new persona instead of staying in the old worn out place of self. It is about renewing the passion. We have come to time which is set for adventure with the grand trine and eclipse. Are you ready to go into uncharted waters? Ol’ man Jupiter is in charge here. And he is positive and upbeat so if you are not, he will not like it. This is no time for any BS. It is time you give up the crap. Period. It will take you down if you take it with you on the journey that is beginning right now. The past is over and done with. Save yourself a lot of trouble and dump it. Oh ye of little faith who fail to see the truth. It is imperative that you just do it and walk past all the garbage that you have been collecting through eons. Dragging all that junk with you will block your way and is that what you truly desire to have happen? This is the kind of energy that if you are so inclined, watch what you wish for because it will come to you in a big way. All kidding aside, this is serious stuff and I suggest you think about that intention because it will come to you. Now remember, there may be some sluggish delays due to Mercury retrograde. Get to near the end of the post.
Let’s take a look at the New Moon in Sagittarius a bit closer. If you have any planets or asteroids in the early degrees of the signs of Sagittarius or Gemini, Virgo or Pisces, this New Moon energy will intensify energy of the planets located in those early degrees. Of course, there also may be some effect for any Scorpio late degrees. There is someone I know who has the New Moon on Valentine in their solar return chart. What a wonderful time for reaching out in love. What are you waiting for? This is a time to say the heck with those others who really have no interest in you anyway. Go for the gusto and reach deep into your heart and let whoever know it in a big way. For all the rest of you out there, this is a time when something you do may not meet with the sanction of others around you. Darn. Guess what it’s time to do it anyway. YES it is. And those changes that you are resisting are coming on quickly. For goodness sakes, leap into them. There is much planning in this New Moon period and once you find your plan designed, you may find it takes a while to get it off the ground. It is just a bit lazy on some level.
Do you want to create your destiny? The New Moon in Sagittarius is about rising above the ego mind. Now is the time to choose whether you are on the path of ego or the path of the Spirit. Once you make that decision things begin to fall into place in your lives and you will begin to achieve balance. I know everyone gets into ego at times, yet if you decide to listen to your intuition, watch how your life changes and your true path may actually appear to you. Are you ready? Uranus has some input also on this New Moon. It may bring unexpected changes and if you are prepared for them, then so much the better. I feel they may be just what is needed. Remember better to know that there may be some changes rather than to be caught off guard.
Mercury retrograde is back. Oh joy! It went into retrograde tonight (November 23) and will stay retro until December 13. Not a good thing for your holiday shopping. Electronics is the worst thing to buy before the 13th. And avoid signing those important documents/agreements. Watch any major travel during this retrograde period.
Let’s take a quick look at other things happening in this time frame. Panacea and Pluto aspect tells you to get to the root of the problem and this will help to heal you and then your life can take major leaps to improving. In my personal chart I have the New Moon on my South Node which says to me that releasing the past issues is so important. It is also trine my Saturn which keeps me be professional at work and on track. Also I have a Juno transit ready to hit my vertex in the next couple of days. I think it is about a more permanent connecting link.
I have decided to pick a Pages of Shustah card to pull together this post. It is the Gnomes card. Very interesting. Quoting from the Shustah book site it says:
“The yellow gnomes card has the value of the dynamic power of inner developing of emotional concentration. It is literally the transmutation – the deep inner change that comes with work on one’s self. The gnomes in the card have expressions of great effort and grimace, but they bring forth nuggets of gold. … take heart with this message, and forge on; even in the face of criticism and not exactly warm approval for my efforts- I will gain more than what I perceive I have lost! I will come out a winner in spite of it all…”
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (those in the US) and enjoy your coming weekend. I am thankful for those who read my blog. Stay in the moment because the efforts you are putting out there are beginning to come back to you. And remember that old junk, negative thoughtforms and being resistant are undermining your truth. This New Moon in Sagittarius is about positive thinking and behavior. Again thank you. Blessings to you. Until again. Love, Jan
