New Moon | December 7, 2018 | 15 Sagittarius 7’
Listen my children and you may hear, today’s midnight message, loud and clear.
I call it a midnight message because the New Moon in Sagittarius on the ascendant squares Mars and Neptune in Pisces on the midnight side of the chart, which corresponds to the interior, not only as our homes, but as our inner emotional private state.
The Sun and Moon is Sagittarius enliven and inspire us. Sagittarius is the sign of the zealot, the enthusiast or optimist.
With the square between Sagittarius and Pisces, enthusiasm meets faith, or lack of it. Sagittarius is the talk. Pisces is the walk.
With Mars conjunct Neptune we can experiment with getting something done by doing nothing save monitoring our vibration. The strongest are the stillest and the calmest. I think of the athlete before she is about to shoot the arrow. She plants her feet and arranges her arms and focuses her eye. If there is something you are aiming for, you might want to take this stance. Focus. Don’t flail. Beware of trying too hard. The vibratory stance is needed, not force.
Think of the Tarot image of Key 8, called Strength. The woman, representing subconsciousness, has command of the ferocious looking king of beasts. For us to consciously be that calm, we consciously leverage the force by letting subconsciousness do its job.
Key 8 is attributed to Leo and Leo is ruled by the Sun. The Sun in Sagittarius helps us by keeping up our optimism, enthusiasm and aspiration. When Sagittarius rises, Leo is the 9th house of what you believe following Cancer on the cusp of the 8th. With Cancer on the 8th, you might be overly concerned about how other people might feel about you, or you are letting your feelings about others seem to be true.
Recently, Bobby Bones, a radio personality, won Dancing with the Stars even though he was not the best dancer. But by the end of the story, he won over the judges with the highest possible marks. However, he won over the people from the beginning because he expressed sheer joy. Liking himself and loving the opportunity, was infectious for the observer. You had to like him.
Even if you’re feeling short of wildly enthusiastic, keep your head high and your feet moving forward. One recent morning I woke up from a dream (Pisces) hearing Barbra Streisand singing “You’ve got to get up every morning and show the world, all the love in your heart, then people gonna treat you better, you’re gonna find, yes you will, that you’re beautiful as you feel.” (Lyrics by Carole King). That is the midnight message. You’re as beautiful as you feel.
Cultivate good vibrations. Observe how you feel by feeling how you feel. If you are not feeling your best, try to change your vibration. The dictionary defines vibration as “a person’s emotional state, the atmosphere of a place, or the associations of an object, as communicated to and felt by others.” If you are feeling less than your best, find a thought that feels better. For example, when I am in the middle of a crisis, I like to say, “Things are always working out for me.” I never say this and have things not work out!
