Astro-Notes on December 17, 2017 – Sagittarius New Moon

Daily Aspects:
– Mercury Rx in Sagittarius semi-sextile Vesta in Scorpio, semi-square Juno in Aquarius and semi-sextile Jupiter in Scorpio
– Vesta in Scorpio square nodal axis
– Pallas stations direct at 25:05 Aries
– New Moon at 26:31 Sagittarius at 10:30 pm PST

A few energy shifts have happened just before the New Moon in Sagittarius will transpire. Yesterday did Juno make ingress to Aquarius, where she will be traversing until February 23, and then Ceres stationed retrograde in Leo, whereas Pallas stationed direct in Aries today.

This means we entered a period during which we seek to change our relationship principle and alter, upgrade or reform established relationship dynamics together with our role within them, while we’re reviewing how cycles and seasons have played out in our life and also how we express nurturance and care, as well as create and experience support.

After we revisited politics and patterns of survival we’ve been employing since June, we can now use these findings to move forward with our initial intentions and at the same time become more independent or individualized.
Vesta in Scorpio is squaring the nodal axis across Leo and Aquarius, indicating that we’ve reached a turning point commitment-wise, where we need to intensify our dedication toward our future prospects or the life we want to create for ourselves and this forces us to break with past patterns, where our energy investment and the resources we shared weren’t reciprocated or even abused.

With retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius engaged in a semi-sextile to Vesta and a semi-square to Juno, we know this has to end, because a relationship situation has changed and not only requires from us to rethink our long-term plans, but also to refocus on our options for empowerment and in regard to our business affairs or mission.

A New Moon in Sagittarius is a good time to plant the seeds of growth, expansion and   greatness by setting our intentions on enterprise, adventure, faith, broadening our horizons, looking for where the grass is greener, reaching out, publishing or publicizing, spreading our wings, aiming for the sky and developing optimism and zeal.

The alignment of the New Moon with the Galactic Core is about finding the way back to the ‘source’ of our light and brightness or ‘brilliance’ and connecting with our ‘stardom’. Therefore,
the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 26:21 Sagittarius states:

A sculptor at his work. Keynote: The ability to project one’s vision upon and to give form to materials – SELF-PROJECTION INTO A WORK.”

(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Page 226)

We’re creating ourselves continuously and are capable of making our mark upon society by expressing our individuality, our talents and particular purpose.
