Wednesday, November 23 in the Northern Hemisphere is the New Moon in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the half human, half horse archetype with the bow and arrow known for hitting it’s target with precision. It is considered the bridge between the earth & the spiritual world or heavens, about abundance in all forms, about everything that is expansive, a tendency toward over indulgence and influences to explore the off the beaten track path. As you come out of the Scorpio Lunar cycle of death & rebirth this past lunar cycle which sent us deep into our truth of self for lessons & healings, it is a good time to step forward as your changed self. This new moon comes with powerful influences to now be who you intend to be as a result of what you have just learned. Shed the old shell to become the revised self closer to living your authentic truth of self. If your growth put you in grief last cycle, Sagittarius can assist in how to process your feelings in a lighter way & feel a sense of expanded purpose of what you are learning. It is a perfect time to move into another direction, feel joyous/enthusiastic, party, but be careful not to overindulge.
This lunar cycle comes with very powerful influences to manifest what it is your heart desires. The planets are aligned in a way to deliver what it is you intend for as you set your New Moon intentions. In fact, astrologers say, “go big or go home!” But with Mercury & Venus alignments, be careful to ensure your mind and heart are in agreement with your desires or you will end up sending yourself off into another direction of which you are not intending. It will deliver your energy & motivations based on what you think and feel. When you plant the seeds out of alignment with your true intentions, the results may not be what you dreamed of. As Dr.Michael Lennox stated “know what you feel & feel what you know,” in other words – stick to that formula. Take advantage of setting intention along the lines of travel, education, expansion of all sorts – including structure & manifestation of any desires you have. Sagittarius is the spiritual seeking sign, so you can also set intentions of that sort. Just remember to pick intentions that your mind and heart are in alignment with. If you are not worthy of what you desire, it will challenge what you receive. Or if you are trying to accomplish something you really are not emotionally behind, it won’t work out.
Lastly, know that these intentions can take some time to manifest, so be patient and also be prepared for when they do, because they could materialize fast and furious, so be prepared. Stay open-hearted and be open to try something new. When you intend it is more important to surrender to the form of what materializes than to expect something specific. The universe knows what you need to accomplish what you want, so be open. It is equally important to be grateful for what arrives.
After you set your intentions, set them in motion by feeling & experiencing who you will be, visualize and simulate the part. Also feel the gratefulness of receiving it in advance.
Let’s see what the cards say & ask: How do I manifest what is in my heart and mind moving me into the future successfully? I drew a card from “The Shaman’s Dream” by Alberto Villoldo & Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was “The Perfect Storm.” The essential meaning is: The courage to step into life. “I say” this card sends a warning that if you are too far off course from what is true in your heart and mind, you may get caught up in the gusts and swept away, off course from your true path, as the power of this manifestation can be fast & turbulent. You don’t want to get swept away from the core of what is important to your heart, chasing someone else’s dream. Heed moving in the direction of what others may think or suggest for their approval, but be open to feel in your heart if the messages that come are true to your desires. Act on that which you feel alignment in your thoughts & heart. If you follow something you desire but don’t believe you can do it, you will be sidelined into something you are not ready to have or not want. But if you feel confident about a newly desired manifestation, follow it with curiosity, explore it, express gratefulness and celebrate the victory when it unfolds. For you have intended & manifested what is true to your heart and mind with patience.
Peace & Love, Susan
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans!
