New Moon & Solar Eclipse today! The moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and combined with the solar eclipse, this is a powerful aspect. What does it mean?
New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This lunation is a more potent New Moon, as it is a Solar Eclipse, and represents a new beginning in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius. It's a time when we can focus on some of the constructive traits of the sign of the Archer--optimistic, enthusiastic, adventurous, honest, outspoken, independent--and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives.
Eclipses are extra powerful during new and full moons. Eclipses, in astrology, are accelerators. They speed up events, issues, situations in our personal lives and demand for them to be dealt with.
Eclipses trigger necessary changes to one's journey in life. Because these changes are triggered outside of one's own volition, they are often harsh, sudden and undeniable. The initial shock evoke sadness, confusion, frustration, anger, worry and, possibly, depression. However, it is our reaction past the initial shock that defines how we will allow these eclipses to influence us.
With this potent Sagittarius energy, we can find ways to transcend these details of day-to-day life and nurture our faith, hope, and vision. Now, we can focus on goals that will increase our understanding and awareness, give us courage to expand our horizons, and gain confidence and optimism through a broader perspective. We can too easily get lost in the details of mundane existence. Because Sagittarius thinks in big terms, we may have a tendency to overdo our expectations--something to watch for. It's time to be a little more adventurous, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our braveries, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs. The New Moon Solar Eclipse trines Uranus and squares Mars, stimulating surprises, change, and impulsiveness. With this potent Sagittarius energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.
