Happy Monday! This is our last week of the month and like last week, we have a lot of powerful transits aligning us with our higher purpose.
The first transit to discuss is our New Moon that is happening on Tuesday November 26th at 7:06 AM PST at 4 degrees of Sagittarius.
This energy will be great for setting intentions around how we wish to grow over the next month before the year is over.
Here are some energies to align yourself with over the next 24 hours:

The planetary glyph of Jupiter is a cross, with a line curving upwards to symbolize the expansion of consciousness beyond material form.
With a New Moon in Sagittarius, we are focusing our attention on spiritual expansion. Look to the house of your birth chart to see where this new cycle of expansion is beginning for you at this time.
New Moon intention setting for Sagittarius
Write your intention on a piece of paper during the New Moon and put under a prayer candle that has been anointed with the herbs and energies that you are hoping to manifest into your life. You can put herbs and crystals on the altar of this ritual to enhance the energetic properties.
Sit and meditate on this candle sending your energy to the flame of the candle and envisioning your manifestation coming to fruition in the way that you wish.
Be mindful of the energy and purity of your heart during this ritual, as what is in the heart will be what you manifest, not what is in the mind.
Keep this paper underneath your candle until the candle has completely burned down, if burning a 7 day candle keep candle burning every day until it is done, may put out and relight until it is done. Any candles that are not finished will not complete your intention to the effect you want.
Pay attention to how the wax melts, the success of the burn on the wax will show the success of your intention and its potential for manifestation.

Moon in Scorpio
Moon Void of course 9:30 AM
With the Moon in its fall in Scorpio and void of course for most of the day, it is wise for us to not make any large decisions, or exert ourselves too hard. We could be feeling emotionally ungrounded or frustrated today if we do not take the time to check in with ourselves. Move slow and be kind to yourself and others. This isn’t a time to get jealous or focus on other people. Focus on yourself and be mindful with what you project. We also are in the balsamic phase of the Moon today, which could cause us feeling extremely introverted and we may be inclined to isolate ourselves from others today. This is a good time for introspection and releasing any energy that has been toxic in your life.

Moon Sextile Pluto in Capricorn 9:30 AM
We feel a need for transformation in our lives and we may be more at peace with the changes taking place within us and around us during this time.
Venus enters Capricorn 4:29 PM
Venus in Capricorn could have us focusing a lot on our finances and the work we do around our finances over the next few weeks. This may be a time where we feel charitable, or like we are in need of some charity ourselves. This is a good time for getting your health in order for the remainder of the year as well, and finding a balance within your life when it comes to the energy we are exerting. Venus will be in Capricorn until December 19th.

New Moon at 4 degrees of Sagittarius 7:06 AM
Our New moon in Sagittarius hits at 7:06 AM which also happens to be the Jupiter hour in ritual magick. This is a powerful time for setting intention in our life around how we wish to expand and grow spiritually over the next month. Refer to the beginning of this blog for ritual guidance and Tarot spread.
Moon in Sagittarius
We continue to feel the powerful energy of our New Moon and we benefit from holding our intentions in our hearts throughout the day. The Moon in Sagittarius may have us feeling inspired to make some changes in our life, or explore our world in new and interesting ways. A lot of us also may be traveling for the holidays, and this could help to free up some of this energy in ways that help us to feel empowered in our growth during this time.
Strong Aspects During the Day PDT
Neptune Stations Direct in Pisces 4:33 AM
Neptune finally stations direct in the mutable sign of Pisces after having been retrograde since June 19th of this year. With Neptune stationing direct, we may feel like we are stepping out of a confusing period and finally able to see things more clearly in regard to our intuitive impulses. Things we may have been questioning this year begin to feel more clear to us and we may feel like we are stepping into a more aligned and direct path as the end of the year approaches.
Moon Void of Course 2:50 AM
Moon enters Capricorn 4:33 AM
Moon is in its detriment in Capricorn and can have us feeling cold or aloof towards others. Since it is Thanksgiving and we are often spending time with others, we may feel like we are needing to set boundaries with our energy field. This may be a beneficial time to put your energy into practical tasks, but with the energy of Mercury and Neptune, we may feel extra sensitive to the energy of others. If you need to tap ou and step away at various times to collect yourself, do so, it will help you.
