Good Morning & Happy Friday!
Today the New Moon goes into our freedom-seeking friend, Sagittarius. This new moon is all about addressing limitations & wounds that are obstructing us from our goals and our freedom.
So what happens with a new moon? New Moons are the beginning of the 29.5 day moon cycle and signal a fresh start for the following month. At the new moon, you will not see any light on the Moon, but simply the very beginning of the light as it slowly starts to increase again, becoming more visible over the upcoming days. This is known as the beginning of the waxing phase, which lasts until the next Full Moon and is associated with growth, expansion & clarity.
In relation to growth , this time is the time to set our intentions for the positive things we wish to manifest or expand over this next little while. (Remember: New Moon = manifest, Full Moon = Release)
As each New Moon switches astrological signs, so do our moods and intentions. Sagittarius is a passionate fire sign ruled by Jupiter. It is associated with higher education, truth seeking, traveling, philosophy, spiritual beliefs, and the ‘big picture.’ Sagittarius is about freedom, expansion, big goals, and exploring beyond limitations. Under this New Moon, look at the big picure in your life. What do you most desire at this time? Do you wish to travel to another country? Are you seeking more freedom in your current relationship? Are you becoming more spiritually aware and seeking a higher purpose? Whatever it may be, under this New Moon, write that shit down & manifest it!!
Sidenote: tonight, I am getting together with girlfriends, my “soul sistas”, for a holiday gathering. I told them that I am conducting a New Moon manifestation ritual. Reason # 205 that I adore these women: they all were very open & excited about this and more than willing. So here is what you will need if you choose to do this with your tribe . Candles, Sage, paper & pens. Optional: Crystals & essential oils and that’s it!
Gather around and write your intentions down on paper. Go around the circle and speak your intentions aloud (if you are not comfortable doing this, than you are with the wrong people!) Then, light some sage and throw the papers in the fire. (I like to do this outside) That’s it! Some of you may be reading this and thinking it sounds “hokey”, but really, it’s fun and what do you have to lose?
Love & Light,
