Monday, December 2nd there is a New Moon in sign of Sagittarius. This is the time we start things, new projects, new relationships, the formation of new ideas. In relation to the last few New Moons this one may seem a bit lighter and brighter and certainly more optimistic. The fact that this New Moon is in the most optimistic sign of the zodiac, certainly colors this one rosier, yet there are other reasons for the energetic shift we feel.

The past few New Moons had highly transformational and crisis inducing energies both in abundance and directly connected to them, this New Moon, while still within a highly transformational time, has more of an ease to it. Mainly because the only major aspect to this New Moon is a disseminating trine to Uranus in Aries. This means that there is a flow from the Higher Self (Uranus) to both our sense of identity (Sun) and the way we interact on a day to day basis (Moon). New ideas seeded back at the end of March 2013, when the Sun conjoined Uranus at 8 degrees of Aries, come into form that can be shared and disseminated to society in general. So higher spiritual energies flow easily into our lives, allowing us to literally and figuratively bring higher spiritual vibrations to the planet.

This easy flow of energy sandwiched between the intensely Scorpionic period from September through November and the upcoming Cardinal Grand Cross that will began later this month and stay in the heavens until April 2014, gives us a unique window of opportunity to imbue ourselves with healing energies.

There is another aspect pattern in this New Moon chart that points to a healing opportunity/crisis. There is an opposition between Chiron in Pisces and Pallas Athene in Virgo, which this New Moon squares creating a mutable T-square in the heavens. Mutability is about the ability to change one’s mental perspective.

The Chiron/Pallas opposition brings us an awareness our deepest wounds and the path to healing them. With Chiron in Pisces, the deepest wound of all is highlighted: The separation from Source, the original abandonment by God/Goddess/All that is.

On a environmental level this opposition symbolizes the wounding of the Oceans (ruled by Pisces) by man’s industry (Virgo). It was no coincidence that the day Chiron moved into Pisces back in 2010, for the first time since the 1960’s, the Deep Water Horizon Explosion in the Gulf of Mexico occurred. Chiron symbolizes the wound that will not heal, and we will be feeling the ramifications of that preventable (Virgo) disaster for decades if not centuries to come.

The square from the New Moon takes an awareness a step further into an action plan, by imbuing the stand-off energy of the opposition into the highly active T-square. It is time to take creative steps (Pallas) to heal (Pisces) based on a new philosophy of life (Sagittarius) that takes into consideration Natural Law (Mutable signs)

We cannot forget the planet as we move along our spiritual paths. It is easy to get caught up in a virtual fantasy world while the planet dies around us. We must keep our aspirations high, while keeping our feel firmly placed on the ground, aware of the work that lies ahead. Sagittarius is the sign of the wild places, it connects us to that place in us, encoded in our DNA. As humans we span heaven and earth. Not an easy place to be, yet we have chosen this path. It is within our hearts that we blend the spirit of the heavens with the spirit of the earth.

Letting love lead us forward, as aware, consciously co-creative and responsible stewards we can face the challenges ahead and make this world a heaven on earth. If not now, then when and if not us, then who?
