Sagittarius new moon reflections:
‘The spirit of hope is born through optimism. I plant new seeds of hope in all that I do’
Slowly resurfacing after swimming in the depths of Scorpio’s world.
Bringing back reclaimed parts of the self that were buried under life happening, conditioning, and a long pause of real connection; that I’m sure we have all experienced in some form or another over these last few years.
Bringing these gifts from the subterranean layers into the light, with new adoration for the ability to deep dive, and choosing to seep into.
When we work with what each season / archetype brings with awareness, profound shifts happen.
Dancing with the shadow is not easy, but acutely necessary for growth and integration of all facets of oneself - a lifelong journey and discovery.
Scorpio’s depth leads to Sagittarius’ truth. And through the realms of the underworld we must go to find it. Like a gemstone on an alter in a crypt glowing brightly, hidden in the heart of hearts. We absorb its clarity and piercing beauty, and watch the ripple effects of truth shift the timeline.
The centaur reminds us to take what we have gleamed and aim sights in a new direction, one that feels right, more aligned with this new truth in our hearts. Weaving hope and possibility into every pore as we set off on a new adventure with a new vision.
Jupiter, the ruler, joins us as it turns direct expanding on all we set our sights upon.
May this new moon be the springboard you need to reignite possibility in everything you desire, with the optimism that is all possible.
Weave magic today.
Kerry - Magic of I.
New Moon Sagittarius at 01° 37’
Astrologer Colin Bedell says:
Leave it to our Sagittarius leader Kerry to name the most poignant, New Moon in Sagittarius centering thought: “The spirit of hope is born through optimism. I plant new seeds of hope in all that I do.” (Editor note: this was actually Evelyn Zuel's word magic). I never thought of hope having a spirit until now, 2022’s New Moon in Sagittarius. It’s such a relevant Sagittarius thought because I think “Hope” is a mystical experience. That’s why, like most things mystical - it’s grossly misunderstood and misapplied. Which is often why I think “Sagittarius” is grossly misunderstood and misapplied.
I started to see this first-hand at the start of COVID-19. Whenever there was a Sagittarius transit - and there were many as the South Node transited Sag from May 2020 until January 2022 - or I had to write a Sagittarius horoscope, I struggled to contextualize the sign of exploration and education while the world was in lockdown. From there, I started to see “Sagittarius” as the personification of the Marcel Proust quote, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” Now I see Sagittarius as a new set of eyes, a new vision. A new spirit of hope born through optimism.
While it does help, we don’t actually need to go to new countries or campuses to take a voyage of discovery. We just need to examine what stops us from seeing what could be. Sagittarius is the discovery within our thinking that helps us find what Viktor Frankl called the last of the human freedoms...
“The last of the human freedoms: to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. And there were always choices to make. Every day, every hour, offered the opportunity to make a decision, a decision which determined whether you would or would not submit to those powers which threatened to rob you of your very self, your inner freedom; which determined whether or not you become the plaything to circumstance, renouncing freedom and dignity…”
This is a spiritual decision. To be visited by the spirit of Hope. Perhaps, that is what you can ask under the New Moon in Sagittarius? To say, “Universe, I am willing to be visited, guided, and led by the spirit of Hope to all circumstances, situations, events, and relationships that serve my highest good and the highest good of all people involved.”
Speaking of all people, this New Moon has some relational dynamics that bear consideration. It is forming a wide conjunction to Venus, meaning we will be inspired to bring new vision and hope to the perception we have for and around others. Perhaps, we can go somewhere beyond “right v wrong, good v bad” because we let the spirit of Hope take us to a third option. It’s also forming a trine to transpersonal planets Neptune and Jupiter, inspiring us to bring the spirit of Hope to our collective circumstances. It’s the 11th hour, but it’s not midnight yet, right? Let us have the willingness under this New Moon in Sagittarius to plan new seeds of hope personally, relationally, and collectively in all that we do.
Wisdom, Publishing, Discovery & Higher Education
Think again, Aries! This New Moon in Sagittarius gives you the audacity to change your mind about current dilemmas through direct proximity to new experiences like higher-education and travel. You’re feeling the desire to pivot in a major way and you can trust the information you’ve gathered so far as instructive and highly beneficial individually, relationally, and professionally!
Intimacy, Empathy, Sexuality & Transformation
Lead with generous assumption, Taurus! A New Moon in Sagittarius inspires you to think about how you can evolve through generously assuming you (and others, especially!) are doing the best they can with the tools they have. You’ll never know if it’s 100% true, but the life who benefits the most from that perception will be yours. So give it a try and see what happens!
Romance, Boundaries, Partnerships & Trust
Two is your lucky number (again), Gemini! A New Moon in Sagittarius reminds your already socially conscious sign of the power of relationships. You’ll want to tell the Universe your intentions and put a willingness level into practice that demonstrates the kind of love you want to give and receive. Especially in any/all opposites-attract style of relationships that challenge and comfort you.
Habits, Systems, Wellbeing & Routine
Concentrate, Cancer! This New Moon in Sagittarius wants you to focus on proactively cultivating the highest level of emotional, psychological, physical, and behavioral health. You’ll want to take total ownership of routines (and rituals, too!) that provide wellbeing so you are proactively setting up your life to work beautifully and to feel a greater sense of peace.
Self-Disclosure, Charisma, Creativity & Lovability
Courage thy name is, Leo! A New Moon in Sagittarius reminds you that the brightest star in the “Leo” constellation is the lion’s heart Regulus. You’ll be invited to reveal, self-disclose, and/or share a meaningful truth to others who genuinely need to hear it. Then, through your self-disclosure, this profound sense of self-revelation will help you understand your bravery and beauty.
Vulnerability, Home, Family & Emotional Agility
Name and normalize, Virgo! This New Moon in Sagittarius inspires you to specifically, and vulnerably, communicate your emotions in real time in order to feel at home within yourself. You’re trying to experience the contexts of emotional safety, and this New Moon is pointing to emotional intelligence and communication as the path to feeling at home in places and with people, too.
Curiosity, Observation, Dialogue & Active Listening
Straight talk, Libra! A New Moon in Sagittarius motivates you to speak more directly and clearly to others. You’re a careful, considerate, diplomatic communicator and this New Moon motivates you to leverage that strength with the challenge of clear, direct communication. I like how Dr. Brene Brown reminds us, “Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind.” It’s that simple. Get to it!
Finances, Security, Clarity of Values & Pleasure
Practice what you teach, Scorpio! A New Moon in Sagittarius grounds you down in your values after a whirlwind of a birthday month, and helps you think about what behaviors support these new convictions and values. From there, you’ll be tasked with uncomfortably but necessarily walking your talk in an effort to find the deepest sense of pleasure, safety, and integrity.
Identity, Desire, Autonomy & Freedom
Happy Birthday, Sagittarius! This New Moon is your moment to tell the Universe exactly who you want to be in this new year, what you’d like to do, and who you’d like to become. This is your moment of reflection and intention setting so you can start your new chapter with vision informed by the past and a deep sense of hope for the future. May all your wishes come true!
Completion, Surrender, Healing & Spiritual Support
Take a sabbatical, Cap! A New Moon in Sagittarius brings you both a healing sense of solitude and finality where you need closure and completion. Where you can, how you can, when you can - try to do and over-function less. Give yourself a restorative space that provides non-doing and the break, retreat, and rest you deserve.
Friendship, Activism, Collaborations & Shared Humanity
Put the commune in community, Aquarius! This New Moon in Sagittarius connects you the comrades you’ve been missing and also puts you in a position to lead meaningful social gathering and reunion. After a month of working so hard, this month is all about communing with your community and celebrating how far you've all come together.
Career, Leadership, Integrity & Discipline
Rise and shine, Pisces! This New Moon in Sagittarius wants you to bring your most audacious and fearless intentions towards making your career dreams come true. I know it’s hard to try again after disappointment, setback, and failure - but this New Moon reminds you that the path to Pisces ruled career success is only: faith, vision, hope, and optimism.
