This month’s new moon on November 23rd is in the optimistic, hopeful sign of Sagittarius. This offers us new beginnings that bring abundance, prosperity, and joy. This new moon is a welcome experience given last month’s heavy solar and lunar eclipses in Scorpio and Taurus. Now we have the opportunity to be generous and optimistic and really enjoy expanding ourselves by seeking out positivity and new experiences. Newness comes when we truly believe with all our hearts and souls that life is an abundant experience just waiting to be enjoyed.
A New Moon Of Faith
This new moon in Sagittarius is definitely one of faith. If you have been needing a boost, this new moon offers new beginnings with hope. When life gets to be a bit much, and it is hard to see the first for the trees, sometimes faith and optimism are needed to get us through the rough patches. There’s no better sign to offer new beginnings with a lot of hope than Sagittarius. Sagittarius teaches us that it’s all about our perspectives. The more we are willing to expand our minds and see that we can be happy the more likely we are to attract abundance to ourselves.
Your Optimism Moves You Forward
This new moon in Sagittarius also brings light to the fact that if you want to move forward and have experiences that are different from what you’ve ever had before, optimism is a must. The pessimistic, Debbie Downer energy won’t work with this new moon in Sagittarius energy. Pessimism keeps us stuck in a state of worry and disbelief. Which are things that are totally against everything Sagittarius stands for. New moons are new energy and we are all being encouraged to seek out our own inner optimism in order to get these new beginnings off the ground. Even if it seems like our new beginnings are a bit beyond what we can even imagine, Sagittarius has an inner faith that allows them to believe that anything is possible.
Move Forward With Understanding
There’s a reason that Sagittarius is the archer. That arrow is a symbol for moving ahead and hitting a mark beyond where we are. However, as the last fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius has gained a lot of wisdom which allows this energy to use its fiery nature to move forward with a passion that is fueled with wisdom and understanding. At this new moon, we get the opportunity to increase our own inner understanding and awareness so that we can gain a broader perspective that allows us to experience new opportunities in our lives.
We just went through Scorpio season where we spent lots of time delving into the shadow which revealed information about ourselves that set us on a path to releasing, healing, and transformation. Now with this new moon in Sagittarius, we can take all of that information and use it to bring ourselves into the light. Now is the time to shirk off anything that holds us down and embrace our freedom and ability to seek higher and broader experiences with the wisdom and awareness that we’ve gained.
Seeking The Higher Path
New moon energy is calling us to new paths and journeys. With the influence of Sagittarius, there is an emphasis to leave behind anything that keeps us from new horizons. Gone is the weight of the past. Gone are the grudges. Gone are the preconceived notions that we have about people, places, and things. This new moon in Sagittarius urges us to seek more as we move forward in our newly transformed selves. This is the energy of having an open expansive mind. Even if we think that our aspirations are a bit too lofty, the new moon in Sagittarius gives us the optimism to know that we can be and do all that we desire.
If you’re wondering if you are on the right path when actively using the new moon in Sagittarius energy, just ask yourself if where you are going is giving you a broader perspective. In the end, this energy seeks to make us more open, aware, and inclusive of things that are beyond our normal scope.
Just A Word To The Wise-The Overdoing
As great as this new moon in Sagittarius energy is for helping us expand beyond our norm, the influence of Jupiter could put us in a place where we can overdo it. Because Jupiter expands whatever it touches, we can overdo both the positive and negative aspects of Sagittarius energy. For example, we can be too optimistic to the point of being unrealistic. We can adopt overzealous religious or philosophical beliefs. Even with Sagittarius/Jupiter energy, there can be too much of a good thing. Here are some tips to benefit from the new moon in Sagittarius energy.
- Be optimistic, but don’t take risks that are unrealistic.
- Consider other perspectives, but be wary of thinking that these new perspectives are the end-all-be-all.
- Seek out higher education and philosophies, but understand that theory is not reality. These higher perspectives ultimately have to be used in a practical grounded manner to benefit us in the end.
- Be honest and speak your mind. Just beware of being so blunt that we are offensive and/or condescending.
Just as Jupiter has the potential to increase all of the wonderful traits of this new moon in Sagittarius, it can also increase the negative aspects of Sagittarius energy. This is just a heads-up to be mindful of doing too much. If in the end a choice or decision doesn’t lead us to a greater place, it is better to scale back while remaining optimistic on the path forward.
Stay Optimistic On Your Way Forward
Keeping optimistic with this new moon in Sagittarius is the way to create new beginnings that move us beyond what we used to. Sometimes, we can’t see where we’re going. We only know that there is something beyond the horizon that beckons us. Just like the Sagittarius arrow, we aim our arrow forward, but we don’t know where the arrow will land.
So, because of this, it is important that we keep the faith and hold optimism for all of our new ventures at this time. Even though we may not know we were going, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take the steps to get there. If we are willing to put ourselves out there, we could be pleasantly surprised at all of the wonderful experiences and people we will meet on our paths who could genuinely add more prosperity and abundance to our lives.
Ultimately, this new moon energy in Sagittarius is a blessed boost for any new endeavor, experience, or beginning. The combination of the new moon energy of getting started and creating the new combined with Sagittarius’ innate optimism is perfect for getting started. Sagittarius reminds us that we don’t always have to know where we are going. It is far more important to get moving and allow our innate optimism to lead us forward. The new moon in Sagittarius calls us to take our own arrows and aim for a target knowing that with faith and optimism abundance and prosperity are guaranteed.
