Here's the chart for the Sagittarius New Moon:
Our calendars have exact time and date in your zone


The sign of Sagittarius is associated with higher education, philosophy, and religion. The house that Sagittarius occupies in the natal chart shows an area of life where one may be preachy, opinionated, tactless, careless, indulgent, argumentative, and arrogant. It also shows the area where one is likely to be enthusiastic, frank, optimistic, congenial, clever, an independent thinker, and an inspirational speaker.

A fire sign with a focus on idealism, adventure, and spiritual growth, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. There is an emphasis on learning, travel, exploration, social activities, humor, and the great outdoors. Issues involving morality, foreigners, foreign affairs, courts of law, judges, attorneys, literature, universities, publishing, advertising, and international commerce become accentuated during the Sagittarius cycle.

Mercury square Jupiter:
Great expectations lead to unwise decisions. The tendency is toward extremes.

Mercury bi-septile Neptune:
Mental fantasies. Synchronistic occurrences lead to false conclusions or inspired communication.

Mars quincunx Jupiter:
A detour is required in order to promote your creative ideas to the public. Responsible action requires adjusting one's loyalties.

Saturn semi-square Pluto:
Restrictions hamper long-range goals. Moral and financial debts pose problems. Communications are influenced by corruption and power plays.

Uranus square Pluto:
Unexpected obstacles to cooperative unity are exacerbated by a struggle between the ideals of democracy and plutocracy. It is a conflict between the individual's need for independence and freedom of expression versus the governing powers' need to maintain control. Restructuring is necessary, but the methods are in argument. At the worst it is a battle of wills. More optimistically, it is a crisis of consciousness leading to an exciting transformation of collective ideals.

This is the sixth and next-to-last square in this long-term aspect. It is exact at 12 degrees of Aries and Capricorn on December 15, heightening the energy throughout this lunation cycle.

Philip Sedgwick gives the following advice about working with this aspect:

Find the zone in which you perfectly function as a complete freethinking spirit. No need to be roped in by social rules that fail to fit your nature. No need to be so rebellious that you become revolting. Avoid Plutocratic urges and invoke the generosity of Pluto. Reach out to those who intend to make things better on the planet while following that path yourself. Those who get shaken out of the Tower (a la the Tarot) are those clinging to structures, situations and concepts that do not further [humanitarian goals].

Darkstar Astrology provides an in-depth look at the Uranus-Pluto square.

The key phrases for Sagittarius are "I See" and "I Seek".

Our advice for this cycle:
Sagittarius correlates to Strength on the Medicine Wheel. Strength is the ability to firmly maintain a position. Your Introspection during the Scorpio cycle was about building your self-sufficiency into a reliable potency.

Build your strength by spending time in nature, exercising your thigh muscles, and eating a diet to support your liver functions.

We recommend using this cycle to seek self-knowledge. Examine your sense of purpose and direction. Explore your self-identity, self-expression, and self-realization.

This is not the time for giving or acting upon ultimatums. Own your responsibilities, without giving in to pressure to do more. If feeling indecisive, withdraw and take the time to filter through all the information. Beware making or accepting promises as they are unlikely to be fulfillable.

Move through moments of frustration and longing by writing notes of gratitude to those who have nourished and supported you.

Questions you might explore for more personal insight include:

  • Who or what has influenced your belief system, inspired you, or mentored you?
  • When do you feel most adventurous?
  • What subject would you choose to study or what country would you visit if there were no obstacles?
  • Where and with whom would life be easier if you were a little less self-righteous or a little more restrained?
  • How do you motivate and inspire others?

Affirm: I seek truth and wisdom.

Attune to the qualities of Sagittarius and this cycle with a 3-minute tarot meditation on Temperance.

Temperance is the messenger of a simple spiritual truth - moderation is virtuous. It teaches that one is strengthened by self-restraint. It represents the act of tempering where substances are combined to form a new whole. Temperance conditions the quest for higher knowledge, offering concentration, creative energy, flexibility and adaptability as aids to direction.

Confer with Temperance to focus on a goal or to journey within to bring transformative self-knowledge to consciousness.

Quote for this cycle:
"I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind."
~ Antoine de Saint Exupery (1900 -1944) French writer and aviator
