New Moon in Sagittarius: Honesty is the Best Policy for True Happiness
As a Sun in Sagittarius, I must say that this New Moon is always a favorite for obvious reasons. Whenever the New Moon is in the same sign as your Sun, you are experiencing the beginning of a new cycle. I am sure I am not the only one who loves new beginnings! But there is also the fact that Sagittarius is a Mutable Fire sign and that can be inspiring energy for all of us. Fire signs deal with that which is a creative force in life. And creativity is the soul's unique expression. Whenever a person tries to be other than what they truly are, they are living an inauthentic life. Being true to oneself is one form of honesty that doesn't get discussed as often as the typical admonishment to never lie to another person. But when we do not live the life we were born to live, this is living a lie. However, it is never too late to move towards a life that is more in alignment with your soul's purpose. The first step is acknowledging that you want something different than what you are experiencing at the present time. The second step is to get clear on what you want. Are you looking to serve others professionally in a totally different way? Or is it just the location that doesn't suit you? Are you living in the city but want to live on a farm? Do you want children and are married to someone who is very adamant about not wanting to procreate? Understand that simply contemplating these areas in your life and whether they mesh well with your desires may be a messy process. It can bring up anxieties because you see the gap between your dream version of life and the current reality. Allow yourself to feel the churning up of buried resentment and sadness. This too shall pass. You will not resolve everything in a week or even a month. It may be a year before some are actively pursuing whatever it is that they are wanting to do. It all depends on how far you currently are from where you want to be. The final step is to be appreciative of your current reality and the journey to your ideal life. It can be quite a jolt to make the necessary changes in order to pursue certain things. For instance, some people may need to leave a current partner. Others may have to move across the country or even travel overseas! This may also involve quitting a job. The upheaval can be unsettling--especially for people who are less enamored by change (Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius--I am talking to you!). But it can also enliven you. If you have settled into a rut, doing something totally different injects fresh energy into your life. So embrace this New Moon in Sagittarius and dream big.
