Sagittarius wants to head off on an adventure, either a physical adventure or a philosophical one. Expansion is the word, and with Sagittarius’ ruler, Jupiter, traveling backwards in Gemini, we want to expand our categories and deepen our perceptions. Sagittarius’ spiritual essence wants to explore the unknown elements of Divinity. We can either explore an established theology or turn our attention to Mother Earth’s natural laws. Sagittarius’ curiosity will explore what those laws are, so we can understand something more about our human nature.
Sagittarius energizes our spiritual search. After our death & rebirth experience in Scorpio, we want a new understanding of our place in the Cosmos. Our old worldview was distorted by our emotional wounds; a new worldview comes into being if we let those emotional wounds heal. Coming after Scorpio’s emotional purge, Sagittarius’ fire energizes our search for a larger vision, giving us the curiosity to seek out what might be out there now that our old life is gone. We get to look beyond our old beliefs and discover something new about ourselves and the universe. Once we gain this larger perspective, we are called back to our center, to our original purpose for incarnating this lifetime.
As with all new Moons, we get to plant a seed. Perhaps the seed we want to plant at this new Moon is a new story of possibilities. We all need a story to inhabit. Our deepest source of life energy comes from our imaginations; it is the imagination that tells us the story of what is possible for us. Story energizes our beliefs, which in turn gives us the passion and will to create our life. In the past our stories were shaped by patriarchy, but those old stories have become too small for us to live within.
We need a new cosmic story, a story that gives us a positive belief about what the future holds. If we choose to live in a story of fear, it will hold fear. If we choose to live in a story of creativity, it will be a creative story. If we live in a story of hope, there will be hope. So it’s important to choose what to believe in.
Our beliefs shape our lives. Sagittarius helps us choose our beliefs.
