2018 Sagittarius New Moon

The night was very dark as Snowy Owl and Shooting Star made their way to the Star Temple. But when they reached the path to the Sacred Space it was lined on either side with flaming torches that lit up the night. The sisters wondered who had placed the torches there. Who would they find in the Star Temple at this New Moon? When they entered the space it too was ablaze with fire light from more torches. In the center was a Goddess who strongly stood in a dress of brown leather and tall boots. She had a silver bow and arrow at her side. On her back was a quiver of more arrows.
Sister Moon spoke “This is Artemis. She is a Moon Goddess who has come to guide you for this Moon cycle. She is a free spirit who is also a huntress. She has a strong connection to the world of nature. She is also the protector of the wild things, especially the young, so their lineage will continue. She has come to remind all those in the far away time all life is sacred and must be honoured. Be harmless and she will respect you and support you. Be harmful and you will feel her arrows. Artemis will light your torch and show you the path to follow as you search for your authentic truth with courage and strength.”
Sister Moon continued “This New Moon cycle is about discovering what you truly believe and living that truth with kindness and love for all. The last five Moon cycles have been about releasing the old structures that no longer work, transformation, rebuilding, and opening to a change in direction. This New Moon will show you the new direction that is in alignment with your spiritual vision. The Goddess Artemis is the guardian for your new journey. She will show the Spirit Animals that will be walking with you. All you need do is open to their guidance and the new possibilities that await. Close your eyes, sit in silence, and they will make themselves known.”
The Star Temple was now silent but the torches still blazed. As Snowy Owl and Shooting Star sat quietly with eyes closed Artemis showed them the Spirit Animals who would walk with them on their new journey. When they opened their eyes the Goddess was gone but the sisters still felt her presence. They felt strong and free. That was her gift to them.
This is the last New Moon of 2018 and is powerful. As our story mentioned we are coming to the close of a longer cycle. On Aug 11th we had a Solar Eclipse at 18 degrees Leo (the ego personality verses the compassionate heart). It continues to influence us until Jan 05, 2019 when we will have a Solar Eclipse at 15 degrees Capricorn (sacred purpose). That Eclipse will influence us until July 02, 2019. We will explore the energy of that Eclipse later this month. For now the theme of the Aug 11 Eclipse is still active. Its influence has been releasing the old, transformation, rebuilding, and change in direction. This Sagittarius New Moon opens the gateway to that change in direction.
This New Moon is at 15 degrees Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter at 06 degrees Sagittarius (expansion of your spiritual vision). They are squared (motivation for change) by Mars and Neptune at 13 degrees Pisces (deception, illusion, or illumination). This is important as it sets a theme for next year. Jan to June 2019 Neptune in Pisces (mystical connection) will be in square range (finding new ways of doing things) to Jupiter in Sagittarius (our belief systems). This is a Fourth Quarter Square of revision and realignment. In the summer of 2009 Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron were aligned at 26 degrees Aquarius. That started a new Jupiter/Neptune cycle. The message to the world was “it is time for us to embrace Cosmic Consciousness and Universal Love”. It did not happen. Perhaps this square will be the motivation for that to happen.
The Soul Centered ruler for this New Moon is the Earth at 15 degrees Gemini. Perhaps that is why Artemis came forward as a guide. She is a guardian for the Earth and the natural world. Mercury at 27 degrees Scorpio is the ruler of the Earth. He has just moved direct today Dec 06 at 4.22 pm EST. His gift to us is deep healing and transformed thinking. He is in a Grand Water Trine (intuitive guidance) with Chiron Rx at 27 degrees Pisces (healing and forgiveness) and the North Node at 27 degrees Cancer (new directions on the Mystical Path). This Grand Trine blesses us as we move into our new spiritual direction.
Our Animal Totem guides for the Sun/Moon in Sagittarius are Elk, strength, stamina, and support from our spiritual community, and Owl, the wisdom to see through deception and know the truth. For the Earth in Gemini our guide is Deer, loving communication. (They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere). For Mars/Neptune in Pisces our guides are Cougar, spiritual power, and Wolf, the teacher who guides us through change. For the Southern Hemisphere your guide for Pisces is Brown Bear, introspection, healing, and The Healer. All of them will guide us at the Jupiter/Neptune square journey.
The Clan Mother for this Sagittarius New Moon (and Jupiter’s journey through Sagittarius) is Gives Praise. She reminds us to practice the art of giving and receiving. She teaches us to be grateful for the truth. For Neptune (and Mars) in Pisces our Clan Mother guide is Weighs The Truth. She is the keeper of equality and the guardian of justice. She teaches us to accept the truth. They will be our guides for the Jupiter/Neptune square in 2019. You can find their stories in The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams.
The Spirit Animal guides our story talked about are personal to you. At this New Moon cycle take time to sit in silence and ask your power guide to make itself known. Do not judge what comes forward. Be open and embrace the magical presence. It guides you on your new spiritual journey.
