HAPPY THANKSGIVING and Greetings from Luxor, Egypt, where I am truly blessed to be celebrating the second New Moon of this trip. As I am writing this from my Nile view room, the incredibly magnificent Venus/ Jupiter conjunction is casting its magical glow over the night sky. When these two planets appear together in the heavens, it is a rare sign of grace and abundance. Wherever you are during this New Moon, take a few minutes to star-gaze and make a wish!
I will be returning from Egypt on December 3rd and booking astrology sessions that week. Find out what the December/ January eclipses have in store for you in 2020!!

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 26, 2019
Sagittarius is a fire sign and symbolizes Man’s spontaneous quest for knowledge; the spirit of Prometheus stealing fire from the gods in order to enlighten humanity. The sign Sagittarius governs our personal belief systems, our philosophy of life, and our spiritual “quest” for Truth. Sagittarius sets the course for expanded consciousness.
This month the planets Jupiter and Venus join the Sun and Moon in the sign of Sagittarius emphasizing the importance of being open to spiritual guidance, cosmic awareness and LOVE! It is no accident that in the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey”, the planet which served as the “guiding force” for humanity was Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius. There is no stopping evolution…get ready for the big adventure! As this New Moon falls close to the Thanksgiving holiday, it is a time for gratitude, as well as the “seeding” for new blessings, opportunities, and grace to manifest in our lives.
During any New Moon, the Sun and Moon are in the same sign. This New Moon in Sagittarius inspires faith, optimism, and inspiration.
Sagittarians follow their own intuition and inner guidance tending to be positive, adventurous, and good humored most of the time; but they can become vehement opponents when personal, political, or religious beliefs are at stake. Sagittarians frequently inspire others by their actions, even if they are not always aware of it. Their innate optimism encourages others to see life’s options, rather than its limitations. Sagittarians (and those with the Moon or Ascendant in Sagittarius) make wonderful coaches, teachers, mentors and explorers.
Although Sagittarius is the sign that values truth and freedom above all else, its shadow side is fanaticism and dogma. At this time, our news media is filled with hyperbole and exaggeration regarding the current political scene. It is time for a “reality check”. What we stand for personally is important; the “collective” is comprised of individuals and their intentions. What you believe; you become.
This New Moon is a good time to ask yourself if your personal beliefs reflect what you think, or merely regurgitate what you have been “sold” as the Truth. Have the courage to speak your truth; but allow others the freedom to express theirs as well. We are all spirits choosing to inhabit the illusion of the material world.
The Sagittarian New Moon emphasizes the need to stretch out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons…open your mind…read…travel…We are never too old to learn (or teach) something new. Keeping your body active keeps your mind active. We may not all be able to hop on a jet plane to a foreign land, but we can all spend some time in nature walking…bicycling… breathing … All this intense planetary energy focused around such an expansive New Moon makes it perfect for a celebration: gather friends together, share the joy and ENJOY your freedom! Take the time to meditate; connect with your Spirit Guides, Guardian Angels, Power Animals… trust your intuition. The messages are there for you; just be open and listen.
PLANETARY PICTURES WITH THIS NEW MOON:
Watery Mercury in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces puts us in touch with our dreams. Wishful thinking, romantic fantasies, and planning travel to faraway places (whether real or imagined) are the norm. We want to escape the ordinary grind of the Pluto/Saturn Capricorn intensity. This is very useful aspect for getting in touch with your “muse”, inner guides, and spiritual work. A practical use for this otherworldly duo is using active imagination and/or guided meditations to “see” and create your vision for the future.
Jupiter in Sagittarius conjunct Venus in Capricorn signals expansion with a capitol “E”, especially in terms of, money, business investments, etc. Jupiter is especially optimistic in terms of thinking “big “and taking risks; however, Venus in Capricorn is more cautious with money. They form a valuable partnership good for both love and finances. We have lots of Venus pictures coming up this month enhancing both our romantic and financial spheres of influence.
Venus in Capricorn sextile Mars in Scorpio is THE magnetic attractor for sex, power, and money. With Mercury in Scorpio, be careful what you wish for…it may just come true!
Venus in Capricorn Trine Uranus in Taurus can manifest as sudden surprises and windfalls in both love and business. The key is “long-term” goals and pay-offs rather than short term gain.
THE TREE OF LIGHT MEDITATION:
Find your quiet inner space and relax. Light a white candle. Take a few deep breaths, centering yourself in the moment. Now, imagine yourself in a beautiful green meadow filled with lush, green grass. You lie down beneath a majestic pine tree; whose branches seem to stretch miles upwards reaching far into the sky. This is your personal Tree of Light. Its pine needles make a soft, fragrant cushion beneath you, and you feel totally relaxed and at one with the Earth. You can smell the soothing essence of pine, and fresh grass all around you. Lying here, you look up and see a clear, starry sky above you. You can see the outline of the Crescent New Moon and a brilliant blue/white star pulsating above it. This is the perfect “wishing” star, the Star Sirius. You remember that the Goddess Isis is connected with this Star Sirius, and she is the Goddess of magic, miracles and healing. Imagine yourself making a wish now for your highest intention as you lie below this welcoming tree. Visualize the light from the star shining down and touching your crown chakra as you make your wish. You can feel the light from this star penetrate the top of your head and proceed down the meridians of your body to your feet. You wiggle your toes with delight! You are pulsing with star light in your body. Now connect this light with the roots of your magical tree. You feel energized, refreshed and more alive! Now, picture your wish as if it had already come true, and imagine how you would feel if this wish was truly your reality. You may ask the Goddess Isis to assist you with this process of creative manifestation in your life. You can feel her unconditional love and support for you. You truly feel like her Divine Child. Bring your awareness back to the present and know that you may return to your magical Tree of Light at any time in order to assist in birthing your new projects.
Blessings from the Land of Isis, Mary
