New Moon in Sagittarius

Updated: Nov 20, 2022

Sagittarius, as a mutable sign, transitions us into the season of winter. The bridge between the transformative energies of autumn and the reflective energies of winter. From the deep waters we experienced in Scorpio season, we move into the warm, optimistic, philosophical energy of Sagittarius.

In the previous season, we were faced with our shadows, having initiated us into a deeper version of ourselves, now it is time to aim high and unleash our inner potential with our new found self. Sagittarius, known for its curious perspective to life, its thirst not for knowledge yet wisdom. Above all, it desires to live life that has meaning and purpose. What gives you purpose, Sagittarius inquisitively asks.

The New Moon

Every New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle ebbing and flowing throughout 29.5 days. She flows in and out of all 12 astrological signs throughout the cycle embodying each and every one of their energies. Imagine the shift in our Mama Luna’s energy every 2.5 days as she journeys through all 12 signs. Never the same, the moon teaches us that life is cyclical and everything is but a phase.

Sagittarius, the Archer

Sagittarius is a born educator and student of life. It aims to travel far to acquire wisdom which it then brings back to the tribe. For this adventure, it must however remain unattached to its roots and those around them, in order to venture far. The shadow side therefore is at times the fear of commitment and uprootedness.

Embodied by the symbol of the Archer, and the Centaur (half man, half horse), it aims high with its optimistic view thanks to its ruling planet, Jupiter. Whatever Jupiter fixates its energy on flourishes with good luck, fortune, expansion and positivity. A fire and mutable sign, which shows us no less than its desire for constant change, adventure and passion. Dream big, Sagittarius whispers to us. Now is the time to be hopeful for what is to come and bask in joy. Especially seeing that the Eclipse is slowly coming to an end.

Shamanic Moon Ritual

Every shamanic ritual we create is connected to one of the 4 elements, earth, water, fire and air. Having at least one symbol of each element at your altar, where you do your rituals, will have a harmonious effect on your ritualistic practices. Learn more about the 4 elements in my online course, Immersion into the 4 Elements.

The Moon is in fire sign, Sagittarius - so what to do, ritually-speaking? Connect with the element of fire, especially if you feel you lack purpose, drive, willpower or passion. Ignite your inner magic through inviting light into your home.

During these dark days and nights, and especially while you journal your heart out on the New Moon, I invite you to light at least 4 candles in your space and meditate with one of the flames by staring into the candle light for 10 minutes. This will spark your inner light to grow. Ignite that inner flame, and unleash her free!

Sit by candlelight for the evening, reflect on this past lunar cycle, on the lessons that the Eclipse presented with you, the growth and transformation you went through this autumn, and what energies you would like to bring into this new lunar cycle as we head towards the end of the year.

While you journal out your intentions tonight, I invite you to ask yourself: why? proceed to answer why do you want what you want? Notice if it stems from scarcity, fear, an unmet emotion. Sagittarius is the sign that says the thing that everyone is thinking about but not saying out loud. It always wants to understand and know: why? What is the purpose of this?
