If the New Moon were at 25 degrees Sagittarius instead of zero, this would mean that the Sun had been in Sagittarius for 25 days already. The Sun shifts our collective spirit, and its transits help us to get revved up and ready for the coming New Moon in that sign. When New Moons occur at zero degrees, as this one does, we don’t get this celestial head start. Instead, we receive a sudden splash of the new energy–and we’re not always as sure what to do with it! Especially with Sagittarius, our spirits may lift, our desire for new adventures may build, we may feel the urge to board a plane to some exotic location… but where? That’s the feeling of zero degrees. What to do? Just enjoy the new spirit and follow wherever it leads. Wait a few days before setting New Moon goals.
Sagittarius is a mutable sign. Mutable New Moons signal that a change of season is on its way. The weather will usually be capricious and surprising. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, one day will feel like autumn, and then next day like winter, then it’s autumn again. To be in tune with Nature, we need to likewise become more versatile and changeable. It helps if you enliven your senses. Stay awake to the weather. Stay awake to your own shifting needs. This is the way to avoid change-of-season illnesses. With nimble feet, start dancing to life’s new tempo and tune.
