This New Moon we have a lot of star signs coalescing into the visionary sign of Sagittarius, the Centaur Archer known for her blind optimism and adventurously tenacious spirit of going after what she wants.
She has bold ideas and the combined action and vision to reach her targets, but sometimes it takes longer for her dreams to become a reality because she is so involved with the sensory aspects of life (easily distracted by all the small beautiful details along the way) that she lacks discipline and structure to get to reach her targets as soon as she’d like to.
That’s okay, because this fiercely free sign always keeps following her vast and visionary heart - and right now - with the coalescing of all the signs that have pointed to the Archer on this Dark Moon she’s been the given the added structure and support to know exactly what she needs to do, know exactly how to make it happen and has the added structure to help her get there.
If you have any big dreams, if there is something pulling at your heart, you have this energy with you now (and if you are a Sag, you have the added benefit of this energy being amplified for you right now).
The world is crying and calling for justice. On this New Moon, we are treading under the darkest night sky of year, and in this, the fertile darkness of the unknown, we aren’t just listening to the call of our souls in a deeper way, we are HEARING the call, feeling it, in a way that makes it undeniable for us to not take action.
We are all questioning the blatant injustices occurring everyday at Standing Rock, in Syria or with the election here in the States … but we aren’t just questioning it … we are questioning what we can do about it.
Sagittarius has the benefit of being half animal, half (wo)man. This gives her the ability to access the not only her intellect and not only instincts, but the intellect of her instincts.
From this place, she can gauge what matters to her the most and from there, from the inner compass of what she knows to be right and true, she can take action.
With the conviction of her instincts and inner knowing, she steadily sets her aim, releases her arrow high towards the target of her desire … and when the arrow reaches it’s destination, in divine timing with all the action and heart she places behind it’s arrival, it will be felt.
But this is not just an ordinary arrow reverberating when it hits the target. When this arrow strikes, it will make IMPACT.
And when it does, Sagittarius will be there, not waiting to see that it’s reached it’s destination, but with her deep instinct already knowing it has, she’ll be galloping past it, into the future she’s already created the foundation for.
These times call for visionary acts and the paragidgm shifting vision of The Archer. It's clear that old structures no longer serve and it’s time to create new foundations that support the Earth and the Feminine Morality we are all being called to uphold for ourselves and our fellow humans.
So - take advantage of this time. SET YOUR VISION and AIM YOUR ARROW HIGH.
This is the time to use INSTINCT AND INTELLECT. To dream of new visions. Visions where humans respect humans. Visions where humans live in alignment with and reverence for the Earth. Visions in which we stand and fight and rally for what’s right: what's right for you, what's right for your life, what's right for your world.
It is nearly the time of Darkest Moon . The one that our ancestors revered because from it, they knew the light would soon return with light after the time they called Mid-Winter, or what we refer to as the Winter Solstice.
But for now, as we journey on our way deeper into the wisdom of the Dark Moon embodied by the archetype of The Crone, the wise old woman who says that all cycles of life are sacred, even the dark ones. She invites us, as Sally Kempton says, to look at the fear and terror and “find the love behind the pain of life.”
The Crone, The Archer and this New Moon are all here to remind us of the sacred darkness, and that:
“It is in this place that the seed can rack open and take root. This cannot happen in the light, where all is seen and recognized. It must happen under the cover of darkness, where only trust can assure one of success. This is the way of nature, the way of life, and it must be honored.
Then, when it is time, it will leap like a wild creature, all instinct and intuition, into the morning light.
For this moment, however, there is darkness. And that is essential for the appearance, so immanent of the light on it’s way.”
So embrace this darkness. Aim your arrows high. Use the energy of this moon to release all the old structures that no longer serve you or your vision. Honor your instincts and your intellect. Identify and re-align with what matters the most. And re-member that you too are a creature, a human animal, and that you already have the answers deep inside.
To the Dark Night,
