New Moon in Sagittarius *sidereal* Fire magic, God & Goddess conjuring and the gift of the Sage.
This new moon on December 22, 2014 is particularly powerful. We've come so far this year, embracing emotional waves of insights and empathy for ourselves but also for others, this is the practice of water magic. In the mix we've come across some stubborn transformations but have endured them and gained a new sense of safety and security, this is under the magic of earth. To add more insights to our lives, understanding, intellectual and conscious clarity we've been endowed with the element of air and now we've been ushered into the power of FIRE.
The zodiac sign of Sagittarius is bringing us home for the year of 2014. Caught up in the whirlwind of jovial, adventurous, genial, fun and exploratory energies we may find ourselves truly relaxing that somber feeling that comes with winter and moving into new and exciting potential and possibilities. Sagittarius couldn't have come at a better time I see it as a gentle but energetic release from the bondage of delving deep into our souls shadow, releasing all that no longer serves us and making space for the what does.
To provide you with an a bit of back ground in terms of how hard we've been working on ourselves, the sign that precedes this "happy go lucky energy" is Scorpio. Scorpio has been super busy this year. Transiting Saturn entered Scorpio not that long ago, shifting us from Libra energies that allowed us the gift of learning about balance, cooperation and our own sense of how we see the beauty within and around. After that ride we got a free round trip ticket to the underworld. Scorpio is the key to transformation, the phoenix of change and illumination into the darkest parts of our souls. This journey is not an easy one, if one endures her lessons, we can find diamonds forged from the heat of Mars here, gems that we will have acquired to take our lives and the acceptance of our true souls identity to the next level. It should be noted that this astrological placement, Saturn in Scorpio is water magic. Now it's time to dig into the gift of fire!

This New Moon in Sagittarius is offering us the gift of intellectual abundance, optimism, it's straight forward approach to life (that's what that arrow means as it points to the sky, along with piercing the veil of the human intellect) and it's need to express a sense of joy and excitement toward all it shows an interest.
Saggy is all about fun! Ruled by the planet Jupiter and with it also carries the elemental signature of FIRE. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system it provides us with abundant energy, energy that can seem boundless in it's approach to how it takes on things, and when coupled with the Sun this can be quite expansive.
The sun and moon next to one another creates the NEW MOON and it's through this joining of feminine and masculine energy that we find this Sagittarian gift during a powerful time of the year. Yesterday gifted us with the first day of the Winter Solstice. This marks an auspicious and powerful turn of the wheel for pagans and others alike. Allow me to share what the energies of the sun are and the moon. The sun is our ego, our spirited energy, it provides us with sustenance, life, and sense of "get up and go". The moon is our emotions, our past, to mundane astrologers our personality and the collective unconscious. When the Moon and Sun join hands we are blending these two energies that naturally reside within all of us to allow us to align our chakra and to turn up the heat for our soul's purpose.
