December 2015 New Moon in Sagittarius
The theme of the new moon on December 11, 2015 is finding truth through change. To benefit from the energy of this moon we must be flexible, have faith, and be willing to expand our mindsets. New moons usher in new beginnings and change. This is the time to plant the seeds of desire and success that you want to nurture into fruition. The new moon in Sagittarius on December 11th is the final new moon of 2015. It’s a great compliment to the year end release and goal setting we are doing at this time.
New moons are a time of self reflection, a time when we evaluate our current and past situations in search of ways to stretch ourselves and forge new paths. New moons are also about taking action towards getting what we want; the next few weeks is the time to set wheels in motion and take an active approach in attaining goals. Sagittarius is the sign of the free-spirited, truth seeker. The Moon/Sagittarius combination strengthens the desire for freedom, adventure, expansion and being true to our authentic self. Now, your optimism is high, as is your faith in self and the belief that you’ll be rewarded for your efforts. Emotional fulfillment can only be achieved by perusing what you want.
Fresh starts are always positive but not always easy. Keep this in mind over the next few weeks because this new moon period is definitely not an easy one. There are a few aspects between planets called T-Squares that are creating a tug of war energy that will be felt both personally and in society. Sagittarius is concerned with truth and it looks for it in education, experiences, culture, travel, politics, and in spirituality. During this time we will have to evaluate our personal truths to determine if they really represent who we are or if they reflect what culture, church, family, or society expects us to be. There is some shifting to be done, that is what the tug of war from the T-Squares are asking us to do, shift into something better. The planet Mars is in the mix (war, force, anger), tensions are high as people try to protect their individuality from the change energy that is circulating. Anger, hostility, and even violence can surface at this time . If you have been watching the news you see that it already has started on a societal level(Chicago, San Bernardino, comments from Fox News contributors).
The new moon in Sagittarius is the perfect time to set your intentions on an expansion plan; grow yourself, your business, your connections. Sign-up for a gym, join a networking group, devise a travel plan, donate time to a non-profit. Ask yourself, “what do I believe and why?” then take time to really evaluate your answer. It maybe time to evolve or change some belief systems especially if it no longer serves your highest self.
