Sagittarius Moon

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.
— Lao Tzu

The new moon is in the sign of Sagittarius when the sun is in that same sign between the months of November and December. This is a season for seeking light when the days are short.

Let’s explore how we can relate to the archetypal energy of Sagittarius in the video below.



Sagittarius is the crescent moon bow of the Goddess Diana and Artemis. She is a hunter, at ease in the woodlands with the wild animals. Sagittarius is free from the limits of society. She speaks with the universal voice. Her nature is to seek light, wisdom, and adventure.

She is expansive and reminds us to travel outward and inward to gain new perspectives. This mutable fire sign is the creative spark, a shooting star, a kaleidoscope of possibilities that seeks unity. She can see the big picture and helps bring the pieces of the puzzle together.

The moon spends about 2.5 days in each sign of the zodiac which gives us an opportunity to experience Sagittarius at least once every lunar cycle.
