ADVENTURE & ABUNDANCE

New Moon @ 15 degrees Sagittarius
Thursday, December 6 & December 7, 2018 
 11:20 p.m. PT/ 2:20 a.m. ET/ 7:20 a.m. UTC      
  • Square Mars and Neptune
  • Sextile Pallas Athene
  • Sextile Lilith

Collective Energies:

This Sagittarius new moon arrives after a week of Jupiter in alignment with the Sun. Sagittarius connects us with the expansive side of life such as optimism, vision, and joy. It moves us towards discovering our ideals and expanding our sense of conviction. Healthy Sagittarius energy is full of faith and adventure, while the shadow side lends itself towards arrogance or bravado. I also notice a tendency towards over-consumption while appreciating the abundance so often experienced with Sagittarius.

While many may hail this as the luckiest new moon of the year, I’m dubious of that title. Like all zodiac signs, Sagittarius has aspects that aren’t so becoming and when not examined can become detrimental. Religious righteousness and superiority are the flip side of too much expansion into morality and truth. This new moon offers us expansion and vision as well as a warning against our own Messiah complexes, in particular, the United States.;)

Though I’m suspicious of building up Sagittarius too much, the planetary combinations imply this new moon can go one of many ways. The square to Mars and Neptune implies things could also be focused on our sense of divine will. When the planet of action (Mars) meets transcendence (Neptune), we come into contact with ego dissolution and a desire to connect with spirit. This combined with the more religious tones of Sagittarius could make things interesting for our magnification of the spiritual realm. (This new moon also occurs on 4th day of Hanukkah.)

The last full moon also had Mars energies as well as a recent Mercury Retrograde motion and with this new moon, Mercury begins its motion forward again. During this phase, we may notice more mental momentum after a phase of more intuition. When Mercury was seemingly moving backwards we have received hits on our vision and now the Sagittarius new moon gives us the capacity to channel it into inspiration.

Most likely it will be lucky for some and not so much for others; however, the Sagittarius new moon is yet another restart button to follow more of our truth. Harnessing these abundant energies is only a matter of ease and alignment while staying attuned to your own vision.

 

Everyday Ritual Recommendations:

BE // Try mindfulness meditation focused on your heartbeat, as Sagittarius and Jupiter rule the heart.

DO // Plan a trip, just kidding, or not. This new moon is also a great time to revisit your dreams and goals, create some space for visioning. Perhaps try the Happiness and Inspiration Ritual Kit to help with expansion and understanding. 

READ // Travel, religious, or philosophy books connect us to the high ideals of Sagittarius.

WATCH // Travel shows or extreme sports documentaries could be a fun way to connect your adventurous side.

Spellwork Sundays: Banishing with Bay Leaves, April 21st, 2019

April 17, 2019

Hey there! for this Spellwork Sunday I wanted to talk about the magick behind Bay Leaves, also known as Laurel Leaves. Bay leaves have numerous uses, and they are a most powerful tool in aiding communication to your deities, cleansing a space, breaking curses and banishing negativity. Today I want to focus on the aspect of banishing negativity, which is something we can all do at home.

Make or Break: Full Moon in Libra Part II, April 19th

This Full Moon is a real doozy. With a second Libra Full Moon, you may find yourself having a double take. This is an extremely rare event. This may be one of those days you want to keep your schedule light and expect the unexpected. If you do have to interact with others, keep calm and be sure to be extra mindful with others. Patterns that have been coming to the surface over the past four weeks are now reaching a major tipping point. It all boils down to our relationship with others, and how balanced our scales really are.

For the first Spellwork Sunday, I wanted to focus on rituals involving Diana’s huntress aspect. It is very important to note that the various lunar cycles play a critical role in working with Diana, thus understanding the phases of the moon and how they play with Diana can greatly alter the outcome of any ritual, spell and overall connection. Diana was not just a lunar goddess, but was worshiped as the moon itself! When we talk about honoring or invoking the hunter aspect of Diana, we can use this trait when trying to aim at a target in our lives and strike it with accuracy, i.e. a new job, prospective lover, personal goal, etc.
