New Moons are yin/yang, introverted/extroverted as well as conscious/subconscious, personal /collective.  New Moons are a time of intense energy focus and concentration in the sign they occur – moving both outward and inward.
Yes, Moon intakes even in a positive sign.

New Moon conjunct Sun in Sagittarius squares off with Pisces Neptune by 3 degrees, widely trines Uranus by 11.  Sagittarius New Moon (particularly at 0 degrees) highlights new beginnings that have far-reaching consequences.  Moon is conjunct Venus leading new emotional horizons into more harmonious territories.  Refine expansions, attract reverence, wisdom.

Healing is highlighted: self-improvement and universal compassion go hand in hand.
If your compassion does not include yourself it is incomplete. Jack Kornfield
Have the willpower to be independent in thought, you will be rewarded with this moon.

Moon first meets Sun in fire, squares Neptune in water, conjuncts Venus in fire – then trines Uranus, then Jupiter (rules this new moon) also in fire.  This is a New Moon of faith – at the outset, full of blind squares aka unidentifiable internal tension which usually reads like:

I can’t
I shouldn’t/wouldn’t/couldn’t
I don’t understand why
That would never happen in a million years
Sagittarius is allergic to words without wiggle room.  All mutables are.

As the moon travels we receive insight and grace, we luck into the sunshine spots and feel the gambles have worked for the best – provided we headed in with positive intent.
This new moon accentuates higher education, publishing aka internet, teaching, law, expanding horizons, and the great outdoors.

If you choose to work magick, know that it will reverberate far & wide across time & space.

In peace

Intent: Highest vibe incoming from:
1 Jupiter Rx in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio
2 Fortuna trine North Node of Destiny
3 Spirit message, crux

1 Message of Water: Psyche of 3 parts (Jupiter rules 3)
– docile emotional (pale)
– rebellious appetitive (dark)
– rational represented by the driver
Middle path – rational thought and desires in equality, in tandem – integrity through balance

2 Oba:  Patroness of the River Oba in Africa
Jealousy drove her to cut off her ear and serve it to her husband in a delectable, magickal soup.  When he found out, he left her for another.  
You are wondering how this is fortunate ?
New Moon in Sagittarius is an open door – we begin to SEE clearly.

Moral – Oba closed her senses to rational thought – became overemotional, driven by desires she sought to control others instead of herself. 
Justice is incorruptible, not vulnerable to gifts of persuasion.
Oba is influenced by the card of balanced progress – beneficial, our outcome is.

3 Spirit: Ace of Fire: Obviously Leo, rules SUN
Vehemence, Vigor, Centrality – a leader able to undertake any challenges.

Set your intentions to success in all dimensions of space and time.
Happy New Moon in Sagittarius !

Sagittarius New Moon/Sun trine Uranus Rx in Aries with Fortuna rising smack on the regenerative 8th degree Cancer ASC trine North Node of Destiny in Scorpio.  Not too shabby for a new Moon, eh ?

New Moon trine Uranus Rx in Aries delivers higher inventive mindscapes – changes ala the planet of electricity and synapses firing on all pistons.  Reflections on Mars, as well as innovation re: who, what, where, when and why to AIM your Arrows !
Pluto squares Uranus from Cap – this is the time of demolition, rebuilding, fixing, solving, streamlining, dispersing.  Know your w’s – – that is your intent. 

Sagittarius expands, explores, opens doors of perception – Jupiter, the greater benefic, rules.  Jupiter rules New Moon while Moon rules Cancer – the reception is mutual – the signal clear, crisp, co-operative.  Follow your heart as well as your head.

The sign of family, females and home walks hand in hand with the sign of philosophy, optimism and hopeSixth sense SEEs the big picture.  Jupiter Rx at time of Fresh New Moon Starts clearly defines where subconscious drives have tripped us up in the past.

Higher mind moving to oppose Pluto in Capricorn, count on re-thinking past responses – honing traditional/instinctual knee-jerk responses into higher, more sensitive, globally ethical realms.  Better balanced, harmonious, refined – as only Capricorn Venus can be.

Jumpstart Jupiter New Moon heals across the 1st – 7th house axis, aka self and other.  While trine Saturn in Scorpio, cut to the chase never felt so good – streamlining the mind-set to highest qi is primed and powerful.

Who am I 
what are we in the middle of the wheel on earth.

Capricorn Venus moves to trine Mars in Virgo – this is tangible earth with a kick of perceptual conceptual Scorpionic power as rocketfuel via sextile to Mercury in Scorpio.

What relationship do you desire to transform your perceptions of ?
Make it so.

Set your intention, plant your release with the new Moon or slightly after and your intention will manifest with the moon as she grows to full.

Late Scorpio Mercury is (out of sign) square Neptune /Chiron
Sag New Moon/Sun are also square Neptune/Chiron
If there ever was a time to shift perspectives into/onto higher realms – THIS IS IT !
We all know our trouble spots, where we fail, we are painfully aware of it – we can shift paths in a nanosecond.  Just as simple as changing our mind.  *snap*  

Our mind and heart and imagination are at the helm, we are the Captains of our ship.  This new moon mutual reception means BOTH Conscious and Subconscious selves are working together to DREAM BIG

Let’s work it people !
peace GMA


How do you know a
Merc at MC

Since no planet acts alone,
nor do most people,
I deeply bow to you, my readers, in thanks.

Many lives before this I have remained silent
while my teachers spoke and I listened.
They never knew.
Or do they ?
Time is fluid.
 It is, in my experience, simultaneous.
Past, present, future.
Yet, points in the stream of flux

(see six hands above)
are subject to Uranian bolts that
nebulous Neptunian moments
into Saturnian Earth

We, the people, are awakening to compromise.
North Node of Destiny conjunct Venus.
Soul contracts are in flux.
Uranus square Pluto
Pluto :: mutual reception :: Saturn
Does that seem strange
It is true.
 Every day, choices are made, paths taken.
Bridges built, or burnt.
Soon, Mercury will leave Scorpio depths
for Sagittarius skies
