New Moon in Sagittarius: Acceptance Is the First Step to Freedom.
This has been a roller coaster of a time as you move out of this Supermoon and land smack in the middle of Mercury retrograde, as well as the energy that comes with the holidays and the collective grief of these changing times.
Many ups and downs. Twists and turns. Emotionally bankrupt one minute, and free feeling the next. Now with the coming of this Sagittarius New Moon, we are being asked to see more truths about ourselves, and to move towards our highest selves.
“The Fates; Milk and Honey; Yang; No place like home”
The resistance right now is palpable. Everything can feel like a struggle. From choosing what you want to do, where you want to go, or even what you will have for dinner. The current energy is full of the feeling of moving, deciding and shooting your arrow high and far, while simultaneously being overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by all the options available to you and all of the decisions upon you.
It’s as if you are running full speed ahead, while simultaneously being held back by a rubber band. The more you propel forward, the more you swing back.
Your current experiences right now, especially concerning abundance, are beyond your control. You are being invited to accept what is. Acceptance of your life exactly as it is. This acceptance will then guide you into the energy of effortless creation. This is the first step to real progress and freedom. This is needed before any real change can occur.
All of these struggles and pushes to accept yourself and your situation are leading you to find and embrace the most authentic you, of which there is only one. When you’re in alignment with the truth that you are a unique expression of the Divine, your ego can rest and your soul can illuminate your purpose.
Use this time now to see who you are in this moment, then allow those truths to guide you to where you want to go.
There is a very powerful move energy with this Sagittarius New Moon. Sagittarius is a mover, an achiever, and a doer. And although this masculine energy is present, be mindful of the tendency towards impulsive or aggressive behaviors.
It’s a confusing energetic time to say the least, so rather than being bogged down by the confusion, use this time now, to create new ideas for the future, and to sit with these ideas allowing them to resonate within you. But be mindful of your actions and reactions during this time. There is no hurry. Meditate and resonate, giving room for the Divine to help you cultivate this coming year.
Home feels safe and secure. A place to rest and create. The ability to trust yourself and feel at home in your authenticity is solidifying now. Home is an inside job. Be aware of what — the past, old friends, lovers or trauma — you are making your home, especially during this time. When you act in an authentic way, you command the world to reflect back to you exactly what you put out.
If you are still searching for your true north, shy away from looking for it in other people, places or things.. This will just bring you a step back from how far you’ve come at this point. Try and do the opposite of what you’re used to. Instead of resorting back to the familiar, embrace the unfamiliar.
This is a big time of finding the balance between being productive and being patient. Allowing the heart, and not the mind, to guide you to your destiny. Accepting what is, while allowing the space for freedom to find you. There is no rush to the finish line. No magical timeline or destinational limits.
Make room for a powerful space to arise out of uncertainty, out of the unfamiliar. Be with that space, and let it guide you home. First, see the truth of exactly who you are, then accept yourself as you are in this moment. Let the truth guide you. Healing the past, trauma and outdated wounds have no restrictions at this time. They are here to show you your true self — your authentic self.
Feel the feelings, release what you can, and allow yourself the freedom to explore all the possibilities ahead of you.
