Today is the New Moon in Sagittarius. The Moon joins the Sun in the early degrees of Sagittarius, co-present and with reception from Jupiter, who will depart its home sign in a matter of days. There will not be another New Moon in Sagittarius with Jupiter co-present again until November 2030, and this one is really lovely, in aversion to both malefics. This is the start of a new cycle of expansion, of moving beyond your own borders, discovering new possibilities beyond your own horizons. Sagittarius is the seeker, the adventurer, the pilgrim. The glyph of Sagittarius always reminds me of an arrow sailing beyond the limits of where I am standing right now. For this New Moon, it could be useful to do some internal reflection: what do I perceive to be my own limits? What feel like the edges or boundaries of who I know myself to be? What if I could recognize that my body and my self are not actually static, bounded, impermeable forms, but in fact I am always in a state of dynamic, ongoing emergence—I am permeable and porous and penetrable and open and expansive, receiving and opening out onto a vast world? What fears come up? Where do you feel the sensations of “no, I can’t” or smallness or just feeling stuck? What if you stay with those feelings, not trying to change them, not trying to figure them out mentally, but instead, just feel them, get intimate with them? Can you use this lunation cycle from now until the Full Moon in Gemini on December 12 to move beyond your own limits—personal, social, ideological, physical—to explore how much more you already are and how much more you could become?
