New Moon in Libra

New Moon in Sagittarius
Archetypal Energy: Chiron, the Wounded Healer
Lesson: To expand beyond past conditions

New moon is the time of new beginnings.

New moon in Sagittarius heralds new situations that will contribute to us expanding beyond our conditioning, our wound, our story by ushering in opportunities for us to learn & grow. This is because Sag is ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system so Sag transits urge us to expand by broadening our horizons & challenging what we thought possible for ourselves. 

Sag is represented by the centaur, Chiron who commits to heal himself so he can make his mark in the world. Chiron is the masculine archetype who resides in our throat chakraHe helps us heal by finding the courage to express our deepest vulnerabilities. This liberates our Soul as our outer world changes to reflect our inner truth.

This expression of innermost truth keeps our throat chakra open as a bridge between our heart & our head…so we can access the consciousness of our upper chakras & experience living Heaven on Earth by being soul directed & soul honouring in all our choices.

New Healing Relationships

This new moon sees both Venus (the planet of love, friendship & the sacred feminine) & Saturn (the planet of responsibility, discipleship & time) conjunct (appearing next to it) in the sign of Sagittarius.

This configuration may confront us with a choice between serving love or staying in control out of fear.

Love is the divine, a force of nature greater than us that compels us to risk, to grow and expand beyond what our ego mind may be comfortable with.

So this new moon may present you with an opportunity to surrender to something that threatens to break the social rules or upset external authority figures but ultimately sets you free if you dare to enter the dance with the chaos of the feminine – the creative life force.

Communication From Old Flames

Mercury retrograde in this cluster of sun, moon, Venus & Saturn in Sag will also promote reflection upon our past relationship lessons. This may result in communication with past loves and healing conversations that helps us reframe the past and move on.

There is a tendency to focus on the negative side of Mercury retrograde since miscommunications & IT / tech glitches impact our day to day life but it also offers us communication between our higher consciousness & rational mind so we can identify limiting beliefs and choose to not be limited by them.

I have officially started my Chiron return. First moon time after turning 47 saw my rebirth begin with 6 days of womb contractions & my childhood trauma triggered in a spiral descent that saw me dissolve like a caterpillar in a chrysalis. Thanks to my local soul sisters I was gifted a fierce love response and found in the resources they offered more insight into my inter-generational trauma in one day than I had in a lifetime of seeking! 

Identifying & understanding the nature of my core wound was  empowering & I’m grateful to have found a somatic psychotherapist to help me navigate my journey with Chiron…working with the wisdom of the body & nervous system rather than just talk therapy. 

My personal rebirth is also being catalysed by clearing what I don’t need from my past chapter…feels aligned with the approaching Summer Solstice here in Oz sharing all I have!

Everywhere I turn the word ‘phoenix’ or images of the phoenix are greeting me! A dear sister birthed her son yesterday whose name is Phoenix & last week during an Open Floor ecstatic dance practice I saw myself as the Phoenix Queen having shape-shifted through other taboo aspects en route…including humping a large energetic Shiva Lingum crystal to the point of complete exhaustion! Thankfully it was a safe space thanks to facilitator, Jake Potter & the blessed hill tribe at Dance in the Jake’s link to find an open floor facilitator in your area. 

Blessings on your own continued healing during the sun’s journey through Ophiuchus.

Happy new beginnings & thanks for tuning in!

Yep, I’m old school. In our high tech world where there’s an app for everything but hair removal, all designed to make our fast paced lives easier…I find the more time I get offline the more zen I feel.
