The moon is on her way to being new this Wednesday November 23 in the fiery sign of Sagittarius at 4:57 pm CST.  New moons occur every month when the sun and moon are in the same sign at the exact same degree.  For this lunation both the sun and moon will be in Sagittarius at 1 degree; this aspect is called a conjunction in astrology.  New moons are about new beginnings and are the perfect time to set new intentions and make new wishes.

Keywords associated with a Sagittarius new moon:  expansion, travel, exploration, exaggeration, excitement, potential, fortune, rowdiness, wisdom, adventure, law, religion, priests, professors and prophecy.  Look over the keywords leading up to this new moon and notice which ones stick out to you.  Which words are applicable to your life right now? 

Body parts associated with Sagittarius:  sciatica nerve, hips, thighs, upper leg, pelvis, sacral region.  These are areas of the body to pay more attention to during a new moon or full moon in Sagittarius.

Numerology:  In numerology the number 3 is linked to Sagittarius and it’s ruling planet Jupiter.  The number 3 is associated with creativity, optimism, inspiration and imagination.  The number 9 is also important since Sagittarius is the 9th sign of the zodiac.  Look to see if either number is playing an important role in your life right now. 

Every astrological sign belongs to one of the four elements and Sagittarius belongs to the fire element meaning this is a sign associated with enthusiasm, passion, excitement and courage.  There is a restlessness to the fire signs along with a flair for the dramatic and the theatrical.  Like fellow fire sign Aries, Sagittarius can be a thrill-seeker and thrive on drama and excitement.  Sometimes we need some excitement and a little drama to get things moving in our lives.  If you’ve become stuck or static in a certain area of your life a new moon in Sagittarius can give us the boost we need to shake things up, to try something new.  Since travel and exploration are keywords linked with Sagittarius planning a trip or vacation would be a great option to break up any monotony in your life.   

Each zodiac sign belongs to a modality and there are three modalities; cardinal, fixed or mutable.  The modality of a sign tells you about the attitude and nature of a sign and Sagittarius belongs to the mutable modality meaning the Centaur is adaptable and flexible.  If you’ve hit a dead-end in your life the mutable nature of a Sagittarius new moon says look for another solution and if that one doesn’t work look for another solution after that.  Look for a different angle or another way of seeing your life.  As the spiritual text A Course in Miracles states, a miracle is defined as a shift in your perception.  So when we ask for a miracle what we’re really asking for is a shift in our perception about a person or situation in our lives. 

Every sign is ruled by a planet and that planetary ruler for Sagittarius is Jupiter.  In Roman mythology Jupiter was the “King of the Gods” in Greek mythology he was known as Zeus.  In astrology Jupiter is the planet of abundance, good luck, good fortune, expansion, prosperity, blessings and travel.  In some astrological circles Jupiter is referred to as the Cosmic Santa Claus because of the planet’s link to gifts and good luck.  At the beginning of 2022 Jupiter was in the watery sign of Pisces and in May of 2022 moved into the fiery sign of Aries.  We receive Jupiter’s blessings when we do things associated with the current sign of Jupiter.  When Jupiter is in Pisces we are blessed when we meditate, spend time in reflection and honor or hone our psychic vibe.  With Jupiter in Aries we get lucky by taking risks, being daring and optimistic.  In late July of this year Jupiter went retrograde in Aries and re-entered the sign of Pisces in late October.  On the day of the new moon in Sagittarius Jupiter stops it’s retrograde motion and goes direct.  Jupiter will re-enter the sign of Aries on December 20, 2022 and remain there until May 17, 2023 when it enters the earthy sign of Taurus. So, between November 23 of 2022 to May 16 of 2023 we get lucky and receive blessings by being daring and fearless. 

Crystals for a new moon in Sagittarius:

Good crystals to work with during this lunation are blue lace agate for speaking your truth, topaz for promoting trust in the Universe and it’s divine right order and malachite for getting completely honest with yourself.  Labradorite can also be good because it offers a protective psychic shield, awakens your imagination and has a calming effect.
