New Moon in Sagittarius, and This weeks Transits 11/25-12/1 2019

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.

Monday 11/25

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.

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.

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.

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.

This energy enhances our dreams and intuitive abilities. We are extra sensitive to the energy of others during this time, and it may be hard to decipher what our emotions are, vs the emotions we are picking up from someone around us. We benefit from doing spiritual work during the next few days, specifically meditation and dream work. Write down any dreams you have this week as there will be messages and symbols in them from your guides that are worth paying attention to.

Venus in Capricorn Trine Uranus RX in Taurus 10:26 AM

We need to be extra mindful with our money and our health right now as unexpected changes to both could happen for us today or over the days of this transit. We may overindulge as that is common with Thanksgiving, but also with this transit. We may have a hard time setting boundaries for ourselves around spending/eating and we benefit from getting in front of this and making a plan that enables us to feel empowered with our diet, exercise, and finances. Setting energetic boundaries with family is also wise today, and we benefit from getting outside and doing something in nature that grounds us in a positive way.

Unexpected changes or feelings could come up for us in the morning hours around how our day was originally structured. We may feel spontaneous and like we want to do something different than what we had originally planned.
