Sagittarius NEW MOON GATEWAY!
Saturday Nov 22 at 4:32 AM Pacific – 0 Sagittarius 07
See FULL Long Nights Moon, Last FM of 2014
New Moon the first fiery day of Sagittarius the Gateway to Space of Mind and Adventure! This New Moon will be the second of Five in a row that start their signs, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, all at ZERO degrees! As we finish the long term challenge of Uranus square Pluto seven times, these zero degrees are like little booster shots! They remind us new beginnings are here. We can activate them by our new choices. They are freeing us from old dilemmas as the past fades, our sights are on the fresh possibilities to come!
The New of Sagittarius is the promise of walking new territory, adventure, exploration. Perusing the philosophies of the world opens us to a bigger world, filling it with more blessings with every step we take. Accepting the challenge of seeking more just and ethical solutions for the long term engages every pore of our Spirit! Taking the risk of teaching leadership, coaching to success, requires every mindful breath to bring your student, patient, client to a comfortable place so they can make effective personal change. Acknowledging needed health care takes faithful courage as we walk the coals of fear. We burn the dross of our minds away to enjoy the physical prowess possible, no matter your age or circumstances. Be the best YOU can be.
The New Moon is opposite the fixed star Alcyone, the central star in the Pleiades, now at zero Gemini! It’s not considered to be an easy star and the Pleiades are also called the Weeping Sisters. Words associated with Alcyone are ambition, honor versus trouble with opposite sex; homosexuality, disgrace, loss, sorrow. Since the star is opposite the New Moon, these are things to be aware of, taken into consideration. Someone across the table or at a distance may need your help. Or someone may leave you, or you them. Extending yourself may bring an alliance, but negotiations may fade. Let go of attachments to what is past; form better stronger bonds in your new circumstances. Eyes open, learn what you can, give yourself a hug and keep going.
If you are just learning about Fixed Stars or are an aficionado, please see Rob Tillett’s great post and list of Fixed Stars by sign and degree!
There are three planetary combinations in this New Moon chart that involve ALL the planets!
First is the Moon, Sun, Venus beginning the journey together at 0, 0 and 7 degrees squaring Neptune at 4 degrees. Think now where you would like to Journey by next year’s Sagittarian New Moon! This is the beginning. Note on your calendar what you start this November that could take a year or could be the core beginning that would lead to many avenues of success, happy accomplishment, make you feel super good about yourself! Circle the spot, the destination is X, firm but somewhat unknown as well, likely more than you expected! Plan a celebration!
Venus will dance with delight; the ballet may be your first Marathon! Leap onto a horse, go the distance! See life from a new height, a mountain top! Play cards with those crazy kids, the seniors at the park. Grow some exotic fruits with special health benefits! Learn the names of people who speak a different language. Give gratitude for delightful differences that bless our world.
Sagittarians do have their opinions, adamantly at times. Neptune doesn’t always, but sometimes gives its life for its beliefs when it does. Sag shoots the arrow, but square Neptune may miss the mark. Neptune diffuses, becomes one with another’s Soul, develops compassion. It may become ok to be different, and come to see the possibility of a greater sharing for it. Neptune may appear weak to a robust Sag, but perhaps Neptune relaxes at the spa, enjoying Sag’s show. They can chat later with the stars shining over the hot spring. Wide eyed Sag may reignite a worn out or lazy Neptune. Sag may then need to bolt off to see what’s next in the Universe, especially if things go too slow. Sensitive Neptune may need solitude and retreats within for a while. It’s all good.
Second, Venus links us to the 11, 12, 13 set of Pluto, Uranus and Chiron. Venus in Sagittarius couldn’t be happier trine Uranus in Aries! Where are you going? Which flight? New worlds to see, fun with friends. Yes, Uranus is in the last part of its square with Pluto, but Venus blesses with her love and optimism. Uranus/Pluto has pulled down old thinking. Venus offers multiple valuable options, and with Uranus, are surprisingly doable, genius results worth the investment! New communities are springing up serving special sectors, sharing mutual goals. Make YOUR plans! Together much more can get done.
Third, the rest of the planets, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn, at 20, 21, 22 and 26, are collectively coordinating energy, productive! Mercury in Scorpio is not wasting breath or words conjunct Saturn. Timing is of the essence. It’s thinking about fathers, commitments, career, age, building, real estate, monies, all important things. It realistically appraises and thinks of duration, archetypes, long term presence, healing, relationship failures and strengths.
These two in that almost square with Jupiter are more than usually thoughtful. Sometimes it’s funny, exaggerated, misjudging that it will have little impact and blow by. Sometimes it’s serious and pesky, possibly downright depressing. There may be a sad announcement. But gather yourself. Notice and face up to weak spots, and cut to the chase. Prevention and preparation make a justifiable difference. Is it a mere foible, or will inattention have lingering consequences….
Mars in Capricorn is sextile the Mercury/Saturn conjunction. Mars is in what used to be Mutual Reception with Saturn in Scorpio, in each other’s signs. Mars used to rule Scorpio, and there is a resonance. Mars is just running on top while Scorpio tunnels deep. Saturn and Capricorn demand results. Mars isn’t noted for perseverance, but does get things ignited and doesn’t waste time. Scorpio adds a little oil and either it’s slippery, greases the wheel, or is on fire! Saturn/Cap contains the energy, puts it to work! Mercury’s intense focus is delighted things are getting done quickly with recycling and little expense. Saturn in Scorpio may hold on too tight too long. Letting go is part of the equation here. Look behind the Mask.
Mars is kicking dust and rocks at Jupiter, flirting, actually. Jupiter In Leo has prowess Mars can respect, and joins in for a bit. Mars in Capricorn can be a super trainer, and Jupiter in Leo is a terrific coach! The combination probably won’t stick, they are inconjunct, an oblique acquaintance. Both are tops, and there’s not enough room for two. Leo doesn’t usually like being challenged, especially when the other is right, and Mars in Cap doesn’t make too many mistakes. Thrifty Mars in Cap is put off by Leo’s seeming time-wasting melodrama, added expenses. Jupiter has its opinions, and Mars is not always respectful of the almighty holy leader’s point of view! Mars in Cap dares to point out the facts. If Jupiter can console itself by hiring Mars as a temp adviser, Jupiter can think on things and cleverly make up their own mind and do adjustments later – wiser, better informed, looking good!

FULL LONG NIGHTS MOON! Last 2014 Full Moon!
Saturday Dec 6 at 4:27 AM Pacific – 14 Gemini 18
This is the last Full Moon Portal of 2014. The mid of Gemini ~ Sagittarius is the Gateway. Word and Meaning.
Open and maximize your span to its fullest dimension. Scoop the sky with your wings wide to gather all the goodness you can reach! Smile as broadly as possible; let no one miss the touch of your love. Reach out with your handshake, step into Life fully. Extend your perimeter. Send your words around the world to quicken the Spirit.
Mutable Signs, Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces make up the Full Moon T SQUARE! Their gift is to roll the log, check out everything in sight, wonder what it all means, speculate on the web of Life! Mother Moon in Gemini talks with siblings, connects the family. She chats with the neighbors uniting support and diversity. She hears the feelings behind the words and more sweetly brings people under her nurturing wings. Just a few words can make such a difference. Mobility, getting out and about, brings a breath of fresh air.
Positive backdrop. Moon has just been sextile Uranus in Aries, and Mercury/Sun have just trined Uranus, so that getting out, having healthy freedom, refreshes the Spirit. Friends are supportive, and we are good to them. New friends have been made, crazy wonderful ideas have been bounced around, excellent solutions have popped up.
In the preceding 5 days, Venus in Sagittarius trined its ruler Jupiter, in Leo, and has had some terrific ideas that offer inspiration. Lucky, valuable, attractive, worth the effort. Add those to the mix! Maybe a little trip…. And Mars has just entered Aquarius! Perfect time for new and different, new friends, groups, or great to be finally on your own! Works both ways!
Moon having been inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn has triggered some deeper insights, hinted at necessities regardless of our other wishes, perhaps at entrapment or secrets too long held. Maybe they need some fresh air too. Do not talk reactively for the sake of talking, fearfully compulsively blabbering. Be resourceful with solutions, have a plan for getting them done. If it isn’t an emergency, tinker at it a bit at a time, in a timely fashion. Offer solutions that relieve the pressure. Invite people to take a new look, give it a try. Old ways become habits. Give the new stuff enough time to sink in so they can start to feel the change. They will have hope as they see things progress.
Mercury and Father Sun in Sagittarius opposite the Moon, gives greater meaning to our points of view. Mercury is the planet of Gemini, so this Full Moon is truly linked across the table. While one speaks, the other really hears and knows the importance of what you are saying. More generous opinions are formed and shared. Teaching is more than facts, though they too are important. Plans can be made from the hope of faith. We can go further from home than anticipated, discover Good Will in so many hearts. Solutions to old matters changes our life in profound ways. Though not related by degrees, Sun and Jupiter are in each other’s signs, mutual reception! That lends Luck, protection, a big spirited air to things!
Chiron in Pisces is at the 90 degree midpoint of the Full Moon axis, the point of the T SQUARE! Chiron is the projection of the energy of the axis, and the one reaching out, the point of input to the axis. Either way, it puts its stamp on what goes out and what comes in. As the wounded one, it calls for compassion, adaptation to its duress. As healer, it is always calling for courage to address what ails us, seeks a better way of caring for difficulties. As teacher, it asks us to master our teaching, help people to listen, vary our delivery techniques, know when to let the patient, student, client move on to another teacher or to celebrate them to go on by themselves! In the Magi system, Chiron is the #1 marriage factor. Question your alliances fully, enrich your relationships with kind words, be open to your partner’s ideas and be willing to give them a trial period. New ideas will come from that too! This will pay off in business as well.
Schedule an appointment or two to chat over your options. Share your ideas with people who can take them even further!
The next New Moon is on Winter Solstice Day, December 21, starting Capricorn! As 2014 finishes, Capricorn carries us into 2015. Yule blessings to you all! May your candles burn brightly, Spirit keep you, and you keep us, deep in your Heart.
