New Moon in Sagittarius November 2016 - 11/29/2016 4:18:00 AM ~ Finding truth
This New Moon in Sagittarius is amplified by a number of factors, directing us to discard outdated beliefs and discern our own markers for progress, truth, and fulfillment. New Moons function like reset buttons, providing an opportunity for us to return to our original soul settings.
This New Moon is introducing us to the message of go with the flow. Allow yourself to be spontaneous and trust that if things change, then there might be a higher purpose. It shows us that our spirit and soul are expanding all the time, that we can embrace new things and travel down new roads. That life is just beginning and their are many treasures to come!
The asteroid Juno conjoins the Sun and Moon within 12 minutes of arc, spotlighting matters of partnership and power. In mythology, Juno is the Roman Goddess of Marriage and the consort of Jupiter; her legendary fights with the King of the Gods reflect the struggle of the masculine and feminine to come into balance and fusion. Juno symbolizes both what we desire in a committed partnership and what we must resolve in order to achieve a mutually beneficial and satisfying union. Juno’s conjunction with this New Moon, along with Saturn and Mercury also in Sagittarius, spurs us to question our most fundamental assumptions about love, relationship, and life
Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is in Libra, the sign most concerned with equality, peacemaking, and relationships; it forms part of a potent t-square, as it squares Pluto and Venus in Capricorn, and opposes Uranus, Ceres, and Eris in Aries. Though separating, Uranus and Pluto are still only 5° from an exact square, continuing radical changes both personally and collectively. Squares require a shift in perception, while oppositions impel us to evolve from conflict to collaboration. This t-square demands that we take full responsibility for our power, and recognize the consequences of our choices and actions. Where are we still abdicating our authority? What convictions and attitudes are blocking us from experiencing harmony and happiness in our lives? Where do we need to be more forthright and assertive? The empty leg of this t-square is in Cancer, suggesting that the solution lies in honoring our feminine side through being in touch with our feelings, respecting our needs, and remembering that we are all part of the human family.
