Dear Friends,
Full of fire, optimism and imagination we move forward. You have a clean canvas and a new palette of paints. Imagine; then, make it yours. Set new boundaries and let go of old ones. This is your story make it a good one. Once a year when we have the New Moon in Sagittarius we have the opportunity to be optimistic and open up to a more expansive outlook. A time for change so educate yourself on what is available.


Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac. It is a fire sign, and it is mutable. It is said that experience brings wisdom. The house in your chart where Sagittarius is you will find this to be true. Remaining open to new experiences cultivates ethical principles, along with a philosophical and open-minded outlook. An understanding of cultural differences at multi-levels is also important here. Sagittarius shows where you come to understand that you not only exist within the world, but that world can exist within you. You need to know that there is always something to look forward to. This month, the emphasis is to look toward the future, be optimistic and open. Understand people and situations that are different from you. Expand, but know your limits. The key phrase, “I UNDERSTAND”, certainly describes the true essence of Sagittarius.

Each sign is divided into 12 two and a half degree sections called Dwads. This New Moon is in the Pisces dwad of Sagittarius.
Pisces is where total commitment must be made to proceed with a vision that could eventually become a reality. In Pisces, you are encouraged to walk into the unknown, even though there is no proof that what you seek could, or ever will, exist. The experiences met in the house of Pisces are often considered to be “karmic”, in the sense that you are confronted with your past. The power of positive thinking, psychic abilities, unselfish love, and a willingness to help when help is needed is the nature of Pisces.  Idealistic, spiritual, sensitive, giving, compassionate are all attributes of the sign.

Jupiter is the Planet that rules Sagittarius. At the time of this New Moon, Jupiter is in the sign Libra. Jupiter is the star of this New Moon. This brings creativity, expressiveness, an open heart, generosity and playfulness. Jupiter is trine Mars in Aquarius giving easy relationships with friends and getting together with groups. Jupiter is in opposition to Uranus in Aries. This brings some exciting new contacts and a few surprises.  Jupiter is sextile Saturn in Sagittarius cooperation is available for your goals. Jupiter is square to Pluto challenging us to stay with the program. Lots going on with the lunation which will usher in December with a busy agenda! To top it off the New Moon is square to Neptune in Pisces. A square is a challenge and this square brings imagination and dreams but the need for boundaries. Neptune wants you to trust and have faith in what you can experience if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone. Saturn has been in Sagittarius for over a year and it is this New Moon in Sagittarius that gives us the green light to move forward.

This is a symbol of the necessity that man create his own reality out of the actual situations in which he becomes involved, and that we do so by taking control of the circumstances which provide the matrix for his everyday existence. Implicit in this symbolism of nature’s processes is the demand that the stabilities thereby established be taken as a foundation for all consequent and individual initiative. Each person in accepting his roots and capitalizing on his own endowment is enabled to proceed to high achievement. The keyword is COMPOSITION. When positive, the degree is exceptional ability to mold or remold the course of events, and when negative, persisting inner confusion.     “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
