This New Moon update will be brief as I am currently in Luxor, the ” Heart Center” of Egypt. This trip has been one of the most relaxing, but memorable, of many. My journey began in Giza on the November 6th Taurus Full Moon and continued as the group arrived for 11:11 at the Great Pyramid and Sphinx. Egypt opened its arms and Isis spread her wings around us, as we were blessed with private time wherever we went. The ” crowning” of the trip was our two day stay at Abydos watching the sunrise and set over the Oserion from the roof top of our ” Flower of Life” guest house. What an unforgettable experience! Now, as the trip is ending with this New Moon, and I am leaving for the USA and our approaching Thanksgiving holiday, My heart is filled with tremendous gratitude for all the miracles we have experienced individually, and as a group, on this spiritual quest 11:11:14…and I am SO looking forward to the next one!
New Moon in Sagittarius
Every New Moon is an opportunity for a new beginning, and this month’s new moon at zero degrees Sagittarius ( the first or ” critical ” degree of the sign) emphasizes the cosmic theme of Moving forward without fear. Much like the Fool in the Tarot deck, we are being asked to shed layers of outmoded and ” dense” conditioning and take a leap of faith into the future. The two major eclipses of last month ( see October 2014 newsletter ), we were shown where changes were immanent in our lives. Now, with this New Moon, we have the opportunity to reset the dials regarding our personal beliefs, and our ” quest” for meaning in our lives. What do we really value in life? Why are we here? What gives our life meaning? Sagittarius is the optimistic fire sign which instills faith, inspires hope and creates a better vision of the future .
Ruled by Jupiter, the sign Sagittarius asks us to broaden our horizons and dare to dream big. Sagittarius is all about personal freedom; it rules travel, higher education and the expansion of consciousness Are we even aware of our own individual hopes and dreams? Or have we swallowed the collective mindset of our family, peer group, religion and culture? Sagittarius is the sign most associated with the search for Truth and ” meaning of life”. What is our ” quest” , our ” mission”? Now is the time to redefine ourselves as ” spiritual beings in a material world”. It’s time to throw off the robot like mentality that keeps our consciousness mired in fear. Dire and dreadful predictions fill the news media and clutter our minds with negative images. Power and control have no place in the Sagittarian vision of justice and freedom for all. Political wars and atrocities fermented over so – called religion is the shadow side of Sagittarius, and this too can be transformed with wisdom and the vision of a New Earth, where all sentient beings live in peace.
This New Moon is asking you to imagine how you want your life to be, and then to have the courage to live ” as if” that was true. If our thoughts create our reality, then Sagittarius is the spark that ignites the fire of inspiration! Dare to dream with your eyes wide open…. You really have nothing to lose except your fear.
