New Moon in Sagittarius:  Firm Ambitions

New Moon in Sagittarius: Firm Ambitions

The moon is new in Sagittarius (9:05 am) on November 26. Busting down locked in patterns is a theme, inviting spontaneity and surprises! Dreaming big within practical confines can be stepping-stones to achievement. Previously on November 20, Mercury went direct. During the Mercury Retrograde, a pot was simmering on the stove. Before eating, the hot meal cools on the plate. The meanings of Mercury Retrograde are gradually digested and the new moon is a time to move forward.

Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance, ingresses from Sagittarius into Capricorn on December 3! Jupiter in Sagittarius can be compared to a rocket ship flight in outer space, a disco party in the sky. When Jupiter ingresses into Capricorn, it is like a rocket ship descends back down to earth. Will the landing be smooth? What journeys in the outer limits of Jupiter in Sagittarius become useful lessons? Jupiter in Capricorn asks for flights of fancy to be grounded and is associated with prudence regarding financial economics. It asks how wealth may be expanded using forethought.

The holidays this year coincide with eclipse season, with a solar eclipse in Capricorn on December 25. More to come on that later . . .

To help smooth out your journey, try some of the Eye of Horus’ Van Van Oil or Van Van Spray. This energetic blend is designed to open the doors and remove the obstacles in your path, ensuring a safe and pleasant journey. For a little extra help in staying grounded, light Coventry Creations’ Stability candle. Alive with Earth elements, this candle helps solidify your energetic foundations. Finally, to ensure your dreams are protected and positive, try some of Eye of Horus’ Protection Oil. Rich and earthy, this blend helps keep negative influences away.

New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

The new moon is in Libra on September 28 (1:26 pm) following the Fall Equinox on September 23 (2:50 am).

Night and day are of equal length on the Fall Equinox as the sun enters Libra and emphasizes equality, fairness and justice. Libra is represented by the scales. What is out of balance and needs evening out? The goodies of the fall harvest are being collected and stored to give sustenance through the coming winter. A bittersweet sadness adds a touch of gray to the darkening skies as the spoils of the autumn are relished over October.

It’s time to start projects that can be completed over the long winter months. What are new ventures that can be delved into which take time, effort and dedication over a long period? In what context can teamwork be a helpful ingredient? The dreaming wheels are turning, showing visions of what salve needs to be placed on what wound. Make a fix-it plan based on where it hurts.

Yearnings to connect romantically and socially are stirred. A hard look at love could reveal the root of loneliness or isolation. Issues or blockages in relationships also make themselves known so they may be addressed. Relationships could take on a serious or committed tone, and some might be due for an ending. A surprise detour is in the mix.

To help bring some balance into your life and space, light one of Coventry Creation’s Inner Balance candles. This combination of cedar, sage, and jasmine is designed to help balance out chaotic energies and works best during the new or full moon. For some assistance in sparking those projects of yours, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Inspiration incense. With a sweet scent dominated by sandalwood notes, this incense is designed to gently encourage your creative spirit. Finally, for help in reconnecting with the spirit of love and letting it into your life, use some of the Eye of Horus’ Love Oil or Love Spray. This blend of essential oils was created to help you connect with love energies and allow those energies to surround and inspire you.

New Moon in Virgo: A Fine-Toothed Comb

The new moon on August 30 (5:37 am) starts with five planets in Virgo! The art of organization and categorization is thematic of this new moon. What could stand to be improved by tidying up? What foods and habits, when assimilated, assist health and well-being? As summer harvest is reaped, using discernment helps to cut the wheat from the chaff. It may be a time to nerd out to trivia or categorize the junk drawer. Yet, as the moon waxes over the next two weeks, a changeable mercurialness trickles in, asking for adjustability and adaptability. Creative juices flow at high levels!

Eight planets reside in earth as Mercury, Sun, Moon, Mars, and Venus move quickly through the sign of Virgo. The practical and measurable aspects of life are of focus. How can innovation be used with a rule-bound approach and infused with new systems of organization? Developments in technology, such as in farming, green energy, and healthcare are highlighted. How can designs be improved and transferred from the mind into the physical world? What genius ideas are ready to be made real? What design flaws need correcting?

Inferiority complexes and insecurities about measuring up may arise. Anxious nerves can be channeled toward productivity. How can finicky worry be directed toward perfecting that art project, new work endeavor or health regime? The inner critic, directed toward the self or the outside world, gets louder. How can criticisms be useful in fixing problems and making it work more smoothly?

For help in tidying up and getting your creativity flowing, try a bit of Eye of Horus’ Focus Aid oil. This aromatherapy blend is designed to help sharpen the mind and keep your concentration solid. To help with manifestation and bringing your ideas into reality, try lighting one of Coventry Creations’ Ganesha candles. This sweet-smelling candle is designed to invoke the energy of Ganesha, Hindu god of opportunities and the one who opens the roads. For help in silencing negative voices and inner critics, try carrying or using in your practice a piece of snowflake obsidian.
