Artwork: Michael Divine- The Apotheosis of Hope
This New Moon is strongly aligned to creativity, art, inspiration and compassionate expression. It uplifts us with faith in higher purpose restored. Coming out of the depths of Scorpio season, the light may have felt far, far, away. The days growing darker and our fears becoming more pronounced. When we reach our capacity for fear, emotion and pain, this is the moment we learn of our true strength. As it is only in the death of someone or something that we learn of its true power.
Therefore, in times of purposelessness remember- these are the very moments that define purpose. Like empty space defines matter. They are not separate, though they appear to be. One is required for the other to exist. Scorpio ensures we remember our power to transform, and now this lunation offers us some lift beneath our wings as we rise like the newborn Phoenix. Ride it high brothers and sisters. Intentions cast into this New Moon carry potency, especially when aligned with channeling our higher calling, purpose and cleansing the mind of the fears that have been blocking our way for the past month.
This Moon supports our letting go of old limiting beliefs that may have been keeping us stuck in feeling lost, overwhelmed or confused by this past month’s Mercury Retrograde. This New Moon comes as a much needed restart. While Scorpio asks us to look at the temporality of this existence, Sag now restores direction, aim and purpose to our lives.
Jupiter, who rules this Sagittarius new moon is hanging out with Venus at Galactic Center. This is the very heart of our galaxy, where the heartbeat of the Milky Mother radiates from. Planets at Galactic Center trigger radical downloads of new information that can come in with spiritual fire. They require grounding and channeling through gentle sinews of the archers bow. And as fantastical as this may seem, the downloads may be just as simple. As simple as that which lights you up, that which makes your heart flutter.
The heart pulses with intuition. You are the paintbrush of the divine. The paint your song, voice, dance, creations, motion across the stage of life.
Mercury is trining Neptune and will soon Sextile Saturn. Redefine what purpose means to you, and you will find the freedom to act on it. Collectively we are healing what it means to be a leader in this world, what it means to stand in integrity, leadership and honor. Do we gather knowledge to hold it over others heads and achieve false superiority? Or do we lead without arrogance, seeking humility and understanding. The work that each of us does internally is what actually transforms the collective in its totality.
May your Aim be True
Your Arm be Steady
And your Heart be Strong,
