SAG New Moon (Nov 26) – Cultivating the Sparks of Light

25 Nov

Dear Cosmic Friend & Astro News Reader,

The early SAG NEW MOON is coming tomorrow Nov 26 – yayyy! 

She ignites our Heart Light with Phoenix Fire that turns into Solstice Light!
This lunar phase reaches exactly to Christmas – the next New Moon will be the Partial Solar Eclipse(!) in early CAP on Dec 25!

 

The SAG New Moon catalyzes VENUS’s (today Nov 25) and even JUPITER’s (Dec 2) ‘ascent’ into CAP!

Plus, the New Moon brings  NEPTUNE’s turnaround in mid-PISCES from retro (since June 21) to direct on Wed Nov 27!
This is quite the NEPTUNE week…
We may feel overwhelmed, drained, depleted, or like turning to escapes.
Lifting (SAG) the vibe
would be to truly relax, and find true connection from within, and with others where things flow… notice: That actually gives you energy! 
Also very Neptunian Medicine:
Music, dance, Yoga, meditation (not just as a temporary relief / escape but as a practice that clears and connects).

 

When it comes to SCO, it’s true, we’re still burning off a LOT, esp. in the mental-emotional realm – MERCURY in SCO is JUST today coming out of its post-retro ‘storm’, and phases out in its post-retro ‘shadow’ by Dec 7 (yep, still some patience please!) by Dec 7, before finally, finally entering SAG on Dec 9.
And lots of energetics of hidden, repressed anger and frustration round power issues are also processing and burning off, with MARS in SCO (well, that one’s on until Jan 3). Move it, move it, Babes!
Good thing is: This phase has gotten us to the bottom of things, from where real change is possible.

If you’ve been in an emotional crisis lately, where a LOT of shadowy stuff came up that you didn’t even feel comfortable to share, welcome to the club!
Crisis stirs things up, ideally moves it out of the system, and precedes new growth and evolution. 
The time is ripe.
And the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon points to help showing up along the way.

 

We’re also (since MARS entered SCO on Nov 18) in another phase (as extensively in the Summer) without Planets in the AIR Element, until Dec 19 when VENUS enters AQ.
Which can have effects of feeling stifled, claustrophobic, out of touch with ideas and communication, and when they happen it’s not easy to be detached and objective.
On the other hand, it’s an opportunity to tap into and practice no-Mind / emptiness of the Mind, and experience stillness within, rather than having the inner commentator involved, and being engaged in chatter, inside and out.

 

Voila, here’s the

‘Birth Chart’ of the SAG New Moon:

Early SAG where the New Moon will be (4º 02′) has an ARIES undertone (according to a real cool decanates system that helps describe sub-vibes of areas in the Zodiac – I might teach it again in the New Year – let me know if you’re interested!).
Freshness & Freedom is the flavour.

Spoke with two friends individually today, and we all voiced how we welcome the Rising Energy with the New Moon.

She ignites a Spark of Heart Fire that guides and carries us through the darkness of the longest nights. SAG deeply trusts and knows: The Light will return, and walks with anticipation and gratitude.

Baby Blessings are bestowed with the New Moon.

OH, and what a New Moon Blessing for the Thanksgiving week!

 

Let’s see what Gifts are offered by the 

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon 

The New MOON will be at 4º 02′ SAG.

4º SAG says:

Learning to Walk – Pixabay Photo by Caleb Oquendo

“A LITTLE CHILD LEARNING TO WALK WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF HIS PARENTS.

KEYNOTE: The natural assistance of superior powers during crises of growth.

At an early stage in its development, every living organism must make an attempt to overcome the power of gravitation, or rather to learn to use it in order to fulfill the purpose of its life. This implies passing through a critical state of growth — growth in freedom, potency and individuality, inasmuch as “walking” always symbolizes self-induced progress. In such a crisis the individual is not left alone. Some more evolved Power and Intelligence watches, encourages and gives examples to be followed.

As usual, this fourth stage symbol in the forty-ninth sequence gives a hint of technique. It presents a picture of the conditions under which a RESOLUTION OF CONFLICT can be ensured, whether at the organic, the personal or the super-personal level of unfoldment.”

 

What a well-fitting symbol – after SCORPIO crises and Martian conflicts – for the early SAG energy with ARIES undertone…! We came through this… a sense of RE-Birth is in the Air.
Baby Steps & Baby Blessings for walking forward-upward-onward again!

Growth (SAG) happens, after having perhaps fallen down / being pulled into some Scorpionic ditches – which yet showed us the bottom and core of things where we have been in self sabotage and given energy & power away (as in: Shadow Projection, Fear, Shame, Blame, you name it…). 
Not to say we ‘should have known better’ and ‘avoided those Scorpionic traps’. The process hopefully(!) served its purpose to strengthen us – an immunization.
If not quite yet – it’s all organic, not a linear check list – MERCURY now in post-retro ‘Shadow’ in SCO until early Dec, and MARS still in SCO until Jan 3 help us bravely move things through, with the guiding Light of the SAG SUN.

 

Love how the Sabian Symbol suggests, instinctively (SCO) trusting (SAG) in Higher Powers guiding and protecting us. We can experience its evidence through signs, and how we spontaneously feel in their presence (lighter, freer, inspired, uplifted, joyful?).
The body-mind-spirit is honest & direct.

 

Plus, I’d like to add:
Ask pure Source and Protective Guides like Angels for help too (no fancy invocation words, directly, simply in your own voice from the Heart). The SAG ‘arrow’ is also an intention, a vision, and a prayer.
A sign for their pure vibration is that they don’t interfere with free will. They respond to being asked and invoked.

The New Moon in early SAG comes in a beautiful Fire / Spirit Trine with CHIRON (prominent in December!) in early ARIES – Healing & Teaching Medicine lays in stepping out newly-authentically (ARIES) and stepping forward (SAG) on the Path to the Light.

The evidence of Higher and Soul Powers will come through ever more strongly as we’re approaching the epic SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12 – which also marks the Old Empire Expiring.
Both Planets already approach their union (in a 37-38 year cycle) – as seen in the chart.
Hence this SAG New Moon, and even more so the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse on Christmas Day(!), catalyzes that epic event to help us step up (CAP) into embodying our Soul Power.

 

VENUS has JUST today Nov 25 moved over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP
We’re attracted to – and maybe have been waiting for a loong time – for what’s rock-solid, mature, and timeless. JUPITER follows in a week, on Dec 2! To inspire us for Building for the Highest Good.

Literally in relationships and with any partnership in compatibility, once a grounded “That’s IT” sense is established the energy builds, and together / in synergy something solid & purposeful can be built that’s a model for others too.
Clearly a great ‘resource’ to make the World a Better Place.

In the New Moon chart, you can see both in close union wrapping round the Integrity Point – SAG-to-CAP cusp. Love for, and Attraction from Integrity is clearly catalyzed by the SAG New Moon!

 

New Seeds of Love & Growth are planted – overseen by Higher Powers.
All the Earthy CAP energy helps us with being cultivators of / in Integrity.

Blessings for Cultivating and Walking with the Sparks of Light! ♐️

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!  

 

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

Come over / let’s meet online, for Your private Astro session!

 

Or take me up on my upcoming Treat Time Offer (Dec 1 – 31):
Treat Yourself to an Astro session @ 22% off.

SAG New Moon with Jupiter (Dec 6 / 7) square Mars / Neptune: Surfing & Surrendering, and Trusting the Heart Journey…

1 Dec

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friend,

How’s it going and rolling thus far, in the SAG season (since Nov 22), and with JUPITER now (since Nov 8, and for 12 more months) in SAG?

Lots of us are still in SCO-to-SAG PHOENIX transition mode, burning off a lot of intensity that’s been bubbling up and become too obvious to ignore, with JUPITER in SCO (Oct 2017 – Nov 2018), in the recent SCO-to-SAG Season.

Plus, MERCURY retro (Nov 16 – Dec 6) cruises back and forth 3x(!) over the PHOENIX Point as well…(the days round Oct 30, Dec 1, Dec 12).

As MERCURY just re-entered SCO (Dec 1 – 12), we’re called to go into the depth of our thoughts and feelings, and deeper / more intimately into  communicative exchange with others – and re-trieve ‘treasures in the dark’ (maybe at places we’ve avoided).

 

MERCURY retro now back in SCORPIO…
…turns our memories to people, places, language, and intimate connections that have been ‘under wraps’ or on the back burner – until we remember what it’s like and how it touches us to talk with them or think / talk about these things.
Follow the prompting and synchronicities that guide you together! 

Rolling through a dark SCO wave or diving into a dark calm lake has us meet and touch on those places we usually avoid. As scary as they seem – they show us (sometimes through extremes) what makes us feel truly human and alive. Of the same Earth, going back to the same Earth.

 

Deep knowing from an inner Scorpionic place brings us back to the Heart, and gives everything a whole different meaning and direction (SAG). Thus is the Transformation from heavy ‘lead’ to Heart Gold..

Sounds like this has to do with MERCURY’s ‘mission’ back through SCO (in its role as the Alchemist!), before fully rising in SAG on 12/12.
So let’s tune into the signs and messages, and how they can change us – if we let them in.

 

VENUS will dive into SCORPIO too – tomorrow Dec 2 until Jan 7:
How Deep is Your Love?

After making a choice – hopefully in freedom and autonomy (VENUS in late LI opposing URANUS in ARIES yesterday Nov 30) it’s time to lovingly dive into the change that this choice brings (SCO).

When we do it with the depth of our Heart we’re in a place where intimacy and magic can unfold, and we may feel carried by something bigger and powerful.

The dark-before-NEW MOON will be in dark SCO too (Mon – Wed Dec 3 – 5) – evoking deep emotional responses to what we’re going through, and facilitating transformation of what has been stuck or hidden, esp. in the fields of communication (MERCURY – what have you been hiding / not processed fully, etc?) and attractions / love / intimacy (VENUS).
Can be quite magic-all if we let it – and follow our M-r / SCO intuition and instinct.
Trust the Lunar Midwife for transformation!


The Scorpionic ALCHEMY that’s on now via MERCURY, VENUS, and the MOON – leading us to a higher level of Sagittarian freedom.

 

Towards the SAG New MOON with JUPITER

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –Painting by Johfra Bosschart

As we’re moving towards the time of longest darkness (Northern Hemisphere) SAGITTARIUS initiates us into the Inner Light:

The Heart lantern shines on our path (as the Hermit’s
in the SAG painting…). The Advent candle lights celebrate the trust in the daylight and Christ light returning, the trust in the birth of the Divine Son at Christmas / Re-birth of the Sun at Winter Solstice.

Where is it going?
Where are we going?

And equally important:
Where do we ‘come from’, as we move in a certain direction / are on our Path?

Are we in Body-Mind-Heart-Spirit alignment in our movement, not on a guilt trip (Centaur, carrying the goat skin on his shoulder as a reminder), aiming high, divinely ignited (Zeus’s thunderbolt igniting the SAG arrow)?

The Scorpionic ‘Dark Moon’ incubation phase (with MERCURY, VENUS, and the MOON) can help us process and prepare, before the Journey with / in the SAG NEW MOON phase begins which also initiates JUPITER more fully into SAG.

 

Let’s see how the

SAG New Moon shows up, and what she shows us, with her ‘birth chart:

From the West Coast perspective, the New Moon will be on Dec 6 at 11:20 pm PST – from MST on eastward, it will be Dec 7 already.

 

 

So, here’s the MOON having passed JUPITER (at 6:31 am PST on Dec 6), and meeting the SUN in mid-SAG:
A BIG New MOON – birthing and blessing the Heart Truth and its Gifts (JUPITER in SAG).

…while the SUN / MOON union squares the MARS / NEPTUNE union in PI (which in itself is a rare alignment – only comes every 2 years, exact on Dec 7).

Lots of movement and flow…
Rather than feeding stories of overwhelm, disorientation and disappointment (which all could come up in this ‘SAG – PI cocktail’ too, or trying to push or stop the energetic waves (forget it!) let’s remember to surf them…
It’s literally a Go with the Flow vibe.
And to keep it Buddha-ful…

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.” Jon Kabat-Zinn


Let’s tune in, to see what else is going on in the watery world of PISCES, and how SAG brings the Spirit Fire to it:

MARS’s meeting with NEPTUNE in PI on Dec 7 happens on the day before…

CHIRON in late PI goes from retro to direct (Dec 8).

This watery cocktail is on in the first half of December, and calls for relaxing, surrendering, being open, flexible, adaptable, unattached, ‘rolling with things’, listening to the music, diving into an energy that feeds us, and surfing what-IS – very therapeutic.
…esp. in pre-Christmas times that can paradoxically get so hectic.

 

Centaur Chiron with the Wounding Arrow

The SAG NEW MOON ‘births’ CHIRON into forward motion (from Dec 8 on), after its yearly 5-months retro phase (since July 4).

CHIRON retro started this year from early ARIES, and went back into PISCES (where it’s been since 2010!) on Sept 25, cruising on the PI – AR ‘Emergence Point’ 2018 / 19:
Out of Oneness / Connectedness emerges a new beginning in authentic presence.
Its lower vibration is emergency and survival.

Have you experienced (perhaps old / re-curring) ‘wounding’ – and its Medicine! – through

  • …being either so immersed and overwhelmed that you lose yourself – and might have gotten wounded, to remind you of being more present and in natural me-first priority?
  • …or feeling disconnected, and perhaps going into compensations like addictions that ‘connect’ you yet take you out of presence, and found you need to show up again authentically – which can lead to healthier connections?
  • …or combinations / variations of the theme?


As the Piscean tide of CHIRON is turning we can more easily ‘surf the waves of Life’, express the Medicine we’ve re-ceived outwardly, and show up authentically
 (as CHIRON will fully go into ARIES from Feb 18, 2019 on).

And YES, you got it: CHIRON is a Centaur like SAG.
According to a version of the mythological CHIRON story, he transforms into SAG(!) as the culmination of his Hero’s / Healer’s / Teacher’s Journey.

There’s a natural inner connection between the SAG wisdom and inner Heart knowing that is re-initiated with the New MOON, and with CHIRON at the very end of PI / end of the Zodiac Journey:
Connection (PI) Heals (CHIRON), and ultimate Teaching (CHIRON) shows: ALL is Connected (PI). 
How does immersing in the ‘knowing Field’ affect your Heart and your Journey (SAG)?

 

Stationary CHIRON in late PI is also one of the points of contact in the Grand Water Trine, together with stationary MERCURY (going direct 10 hrs before the New Moon!) in late SCO / on the ‘Phoenix Point’, and the Lunar North Node in late CAN. 
Late (last 10 degrees) Water signs have a PISCES undertone – yes, more Piscean energy…
Let’s allow caring gentleness-in-oneness (late CAN NN) touch the place where we may come through deep-dive realizations of the nature of Mind (as in: thoughts and emotions) (MERCURY retro / stat in late SCO), and meet the Medicine of connecting in what’s always here – a unified field (CHIRON in late PI). It allows things to release, heal, and bring us back into natural flow.

 

The Lunar North Node in late CAN forms a square with VENUS (which was exact last week when ‘she’ was in late LI, and easing off as ‘she’ dives into SCO tomorrow Dec 2) and a square with URANUS retro in late AR (this one’s exact on Dec 2 / 3, and in effect Nov / Dec) – can you see the red T-square pointing to the North Node? 

The late CAN NN is quite a focal point as both the T-square and the Water Trine hinge on it.
A call for choices (VENUS on the LI – SCO ‘Tipping Point’) to be authentic (URANUS retro in late AR):
When we truly love ourselves, and come from the Consciousness of Love (supported by the ‘New VENUS’ post-retro) we don’t need to ‘rebel’ / run away / split / oppose ourselves to others, to be free.
Freedom arises through the Love that IS – and it (re)arranges relationships as needed.
‘Tipping’ into freedom AND depth – with gentleness and compassion – in awareness All is ONE (late CAN with PI undertone).

 

Phoenix

The NEW MOON in mid-SAG (which has a LEO undertone), together with JUPITER nearby, and Winged Messenger MERCURY coming out of retro at the end of SCO / on the ‘Phoenix Point’:
A call to tune into the Loving Heart, and trust the Journey as it unfolds, surf, fly, and all! ❤ 

 

May the Spirit of the Heart, Sagittarian Trust and Piscean Faith & Surrender bless our Journey with the SAG New Moon and beyond!
