Tired of feeling like you have been dragged through the mud? Me too. These last few weeks have been intense ones in Scorpio energy. But, that is the nature of Scorpio, and whatever you have been going through is not without purpose. Really feel into that, think about all the things that have come up for you in the last month: the heartache, sadness, letting go, deep grief, fears about being in the unknown, your wounds, your shadow... whatever it is, all of it has been preparing you, it is not without reason. Having faith and trust in your experiences won't make things less painful, it's not a way to deny how hard things can sometimes be, but it's a way to not get stuck in the mud. It's a way to understand the bigger picture of the garden, and what it needs to grow.
With this New Moon we are moving into the more expansive energy of Sagittarius, the happy wanderer, the truth seeker, the philosopher and eternal student. You might have felt this shift in the air this past week - this energy coming to us, THIS SPACE! After being underground in the energy of Scorpio this space can feel to some of us a bit overwhelming. How to use it, how to fill it? I think if you have been going really deep into your unconscious the past few weeks the energy we are in right now could feel too free. If you are one of these people ask the energy of Sag to help you find the excitement and joy of possibility! Right now there is a feeling in the air that anything is possible. Stay grounded and connected to your heart, and look into the expanse from this place.
Sagittarius' symbol is of the centaur aiming his arrow far out into the reaches of the sky, beyond what he can see. This is a really profound image for the time we are in. Use this as an archetype, as a guide. This is your moment to begin a new journey, one that is full of unknown adventure and discovery. What is calling to you beyond the limits you have set for yourself? What dream do you have for your life? What vision can you see about something you want to create in your life? Now is a great time to ask yourself and feel into these questions: Who are you? What is your purpose? Sit with that - whatever comes to you is perfect, even if you don't know what it means. Start your journey of discovering the answer to these questions. And dream big! RISK big! Surrender to what is calling you and guiding you.
New Moon's are especially wonderful times for making wishes, the Moon is empty of light and ready to be filled with intention. It can hold your visions and dreams and help bring them into the world as it gains more and more light in the dark sky. This time of Sagittarius is an energy of optimism, creativity, enthusiasm and generosity. It's a great time to make wishes about travel or adventure (even if it is within the self), big projects you wish to start or see manifest, moving through life with greater ease, higher learning, deeper truth and seeing the bigger picture. You are allowed ten wishes maximum, they must be handwritten, and the best time to make them is within the first 24 hours of the exact time of the New Moon, but within the first 48 will do.
Also, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to extend my deep gratitude and thanks to everyone who shows up here, if it's for the first time or for many years. I am grateful for you every day. xx
