This Sagittarius new moon arrives after a week of Jupiter in alignment with the Sun. Sagittarius connects us with the expansive side of life such as optimism, vision, and joy. It moves us towards discovering our ideals and expanding our sense of conviction. Healthy Sagittarius energy is full of faith and adventure, while the shadow side lends itself towards arrogance or bravado. I also notice a tendency towards over-consumption while appreciating the abundance so often experienced with Sagittarius.
While many may hail this as the luckiest new moon of the year, I’m dubious of that title. Like all zodiac signs, Sagittarius has aspects that aren’t so becoming and when not examined can become detrimental. Religious righteousness and superiority are the flip side of too much expansion into morality and truth. This new moon offers us expansion and vision as well as a warning against our own Messiah complexes, in particular, the United States.;) (Read more on Esoteric Insights on J.
