The Sagittarius New Moon comes like a breath of fresh air after all the strong cosmic energies of the months passed. Peaking on November 23, the New Moon represents the start of a new lunar cycle, and within this new lunar cycle holds the promise of new beginnings, new adventures, and new awakening moments.
Resetting your life often involves consciously choosing to do things differently. It involves setting new habits, approaching things differently, and telling yourself a new story. Take all the pains and struggles of the past, and use them as fuel to write your happy ending. If you feel called, you can even turn this into a ritualistic practice under the November New Moon.
Write down your next chapter. Fill it with whatever you desire and how you wish things to pan out. Write it for the next week, the next six months, or the coming year. You deserve a happy ending, so don’t allow any voices of self-doubt to mess with your story!
Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance, and silver linings, is very active under this New Moon. This is for three reasons. First, Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius giving extra emphasis to its energy, it is also in a trine position with the New Moon, and it just so happens to exit its retrograde cycle right after the peak of the New Moon.
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, so its busy activity in the cosmic skies is really going to allow us to feel its energy! As Jupiter ends its retrograde, stationing direct, it will land in the final degrees of Pisces, where it will finish up the journey it began back in May 2021. It is in these final degrees of Pisces that Jupiter will help us to understand what this journey has evoked in us.
Jupiter in Pisces has brought universal themes relating to our spiritual beliefs and creativity, but on deeper levels, it has also served as fuel to help us to connect with our softer, more compassionate, and more sensitive side. Think of all the ways you have softened over the last 12 months. How have you become more sensitive to yourself and others? What walls have you pulled down, allowing your heart to open bigger and wider?
Jupiter allows us to see the bigger picture. It gives us the awareness and perspective to see things from a more expanded viewpoint. Much like a bird soaring high above, it can see so much more than when on the ground.
Jupiter’s energy can expand not only our awareness but also our energy field in general. With an expanded energy field, we can feel more optimistic, more energized, and more confident in our ability to take things on.
Ancient astrologers referred to Jupiter as the great benefic, as its energy was said to bring silver linings. In a way, you could say that the expanded view we get from Jupiter allows us to see the beauty, the gifts, and the positive side of things with greater ease.
If you have been moving through a challenging time, if hardships have come your way, know this New Moon will help to expand your viewpoint so you can make changes, reshape the way you have been approaching things, and feel clearer about what is ahead.
Jupiter’s energy will be on your side to give you a silver lining where it is needed most.
The Sagittarius New Moon is also the first since Eclipse Season began and the last before the Solstice. Eclipses are always a highly transformative time, and right before the Solstice, we tend to move into a more reflective state of being.
Sitting in this strong cosmic position, this New Moon will pull us further away from the transformative Eclipse energies and deeper into the reflective energies of the upcoming Solstice. We may feel more settled with where we have landed and more sensitive to the light and dark energies around and within us. That “new chapter” energy may also feel stronger, encouraging us to reflect on what fresh roots we can now nourish.
2022 is almost at its end, and as we move through the remaining weeks, which always tend to move quickly, allow this November New Moon to be your reminder that it’s never too late to begin again. Allow its energy and the silver linings Jupiter brings to shift the road you have been traveling on your terms.
