Happy New Moon in Sagittarius! This Moon is conjunct Saturn–the planet of hard work, discipline, and limits–and its influence on our energies is pretty huge. Saturn has been in Sagittarius since 2015, but will be moving into Capricorn in a few days. Where Sagittarius seeks to talk of big dreams and leap forward on faith and philosophy, Saturn’s influence in its time there may have created frustration and the feeling of being stalled by practical matters. As this serious planet now moves into Capricorn (which is also all about putting in the effort and toil to get things done), we may be finally coming to feel less disillusioned about our dreams not coming magically to fruition and more equipped, realistic, and ready to take on the often laborious steps required to bring them into our reality. This New Moon invites us to integrate everything we’ve learned during Saturn’s time in Sagittarius (the past 3 years) and take it forward with concrete action. Saturn’s energy can feel restrictive, but it also helps us by insisting that we hone our focus and pick a destination. Where Sagittarius wants to be open to all possibilities, Saturn insists we make the choices as to what we really want, even if it cuts off some options. When we define what we want to do and where we want to go, this planet’s move into Capricorn will be the push we need to begin the work required. It is time to accept that if we have some notions of what we would like our future to be, we have to take the steps to make it happen. Since a New Moon is a beautiful time for starting new endeavors, it is an auspicious lunation through which to focus on the fresh beginnings we want to create. We may feel pressure to make changes swiftly, and be annoyed with a dragging start. The key, though, is to get intentional and set concrete objectives, and to recognize that even if the going is slow, we are still moving on a path that we have chosen. Set your sights on at least one solid goal tonight, and don’t give up when it doesn’t happen right away! The planetary energies are offering you support if you are willing to do the work.
