Mapping your New World: Last New Moon of 2007
Welcome to the last New Moon of 2007. A last chance to correct our course, and take ourselves in a new direction before 08 kicks in. It's never too late to change.
In Sagittarius Season we're reminded that life is full of a bounty of one sort or another. We can't all be millionaires at the same time, we can't all be happily married or dating at the same time, and we can't all be taking vacations at the same time. That's now how life is set up currently on Earth. But we CAN have it all, if we realize that life is infinite and that our Chart represents a moment of time - we are ambassadors of that Moment in Time. Everything we do affects that moment of time that we represent, and in changing our lives, in each choice we make, we change the very moment we are. The Moment of our birth. Yes, we change the past...all from the present moment.
One choice now could change everything for you. That's the power of a New Moon and nowhere is the possibility of great things more apparent than in Sagittarius, the signs of grand schemes, amazing dreams and mighty adventures. Shoot for the Moon and you may just land there. And never judge a story until it's final page - and even then, how do you know it's really truly over?
This unique New Moon brings in the crackily craziness of Uranus to zap us into our rightful selves, free of the shackles of zany notions that we're stuck, that we're limited, that we're doing something wrong, and free of the idea that we all need to copycat each other and stuff our individuality into our unconscious, never to see the light of day.
This New Moon reminds us that those things that annoy, irritate or make us explode now, are those parts of ourselves that long-since stuffed "below" are rising to the surface in order to be freed - and thus freing us in the process. You're only as free as the amount of fear you don't hold onto.
So taking a chance on being independent, wild, freakish, "different" and without a group, gang, posse or place on society is a good thing, as long as it's not leading us to hell-bent destruction since we're lost without a cause. Find one. Even if it's helping a friend out. Dedicate yourself now to something that helps out. Pick up litter. Better yet, free yourself so that the rest of us can benefit from YOUR liberation.
Is it so hard to see as we move into a new year, that everything we do as individual is helping everyone? It is. Every jail you break free from inside, helps us all breathe that much easier. Perhaps in 2008 the key to cosmic climate, won't be greenhouse gases so much as the end to the symbolic polluting of our air, with negative thoughts and words. Air, after all represents the realm of the intellect.
Since the New Moon is also tied with Neptune this month, we're allowed a dose of beautiful inspiration and escapism. Channeling it into artistic creations, helping those in need, and tapping into the magic of the holiday "spirit" is a great way to manifest this energy. Music. Candles. Fantasy. Illusion. Magic. And not to get sidetracked into believing anything will be the key to your ultimate freedom, just an enjoyment along the way.
If anything, break your chains now as we leave 2007 behind. Old ideas, nagging addictions that distract you from a place of inner peace. Let it all go. You don't need it. All stress now seems to come from some manifestation of a belief in being trapped somehow and somewhere. Breathe. Be mentally free before you seek to feel free and thus BE free.
You can't keep your TRUE self down any longer. Whoever you REALLY are and were meant to be is coming back to remind you. Will you fight it, or become this person you truly are, all masks aside?
What do you believe?
At the New Moon we get to look closely at our own version of 'Truth'. Does it fit our new life or are we clutching to old beliefs. A timely question as we approach a Holiday that many now celebrate merely for the twinkling lights and gifts. After all - how many really feel religiously connected to a dated story that spans many religions (same dates, different names)?
Belief rules the world as what we believe, we seem to get - we're living under a Self Fulfilling Prophesy and this New Moon we get to learn something new to help us make a leap into a new world, based on new energy and less on traditions and beliefs we have held just because it seemed like a good idea.
We're ready to open a door, throw open the window and explore the world at large. It's so vast yet we forget, as we move from one box (our bed) to another (our home) to another (our car) to another (the store) to another (the office cubicle) to another (the bus) to another (the coffin!).
No, in all seriousness, it's worth considering where your freedom is this week - and if you can venture past the city limits of your own Comfort Zone.
We're all students and teachers at the same time now - we receive messages and pass them on unknowingly.
This New Moon asks us to:
Get out on a trip somewhere
Pick up a new book, learn a new language, do something totally new
Expand space - clear up at home, move clutter, give yourself leg room and elbow space
Be the free spirit you truly are
Allow others their own space
Redefine your belief system and don't get caught up in holy wars
Stand for something new - rework your 'message'
Ask yourself - am I being honest or bluffing?
Walk your talk!
Bridge Cultural Divides
Tell the truth no matter how painful or nervous it makes you
Find greener grass
Reach for a dream, star, better situation
Laugh - comedy is SO needed now!
Be optimistic, reconnect with your inner faith
Renew your religious or spiritual vows or connections
Ask the Big Questions of your life and Destiny
Publish a new book or get writing
Start a new course or take an exam
Live with integrity
Be an example, even if no one else is doing it
Have faith in the silver lining and the light at the end of the tunnel
Kick up the dust and take off
Put up a map, or map out a new course or destination
Enjoy the journey for what it is
Visit overseas or a new town, city - anywhere you've not been before!
Keep your mind active and your limbs moving
Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign - think of the forest fires we've heard about so often on the news now. That's sag - spreading wildly, untamed and running free like the Centaur; the symbol of the sign.
See your Bigger Picture. Forget the small stuff and don't sweat the details. Stand back. Gain perspective. Climb a Hill, take a breather, look beyond the current time frame of circumstance and find the bigger meaning.
There's no reason to get bogged down in chilly feelings or emotional potholes now - the road of life is showing us a new horizon, a new exit, a detour to a new place. Are we "present" enough to see this?
Choices open up and once again we see just where our freedom and power lies - in choosing the best for ourselves. You cannot fool someone out of the truth -it's felt in our heart and guts and souls as a bell chiming inside. Truth seeks truth and finds it this week - so the question becomes:
Are you living the life you were born to live?
Anything else is a lie. Honesty isn't the best policy, then.
It's the only one. And assurance (and insurance)
of Bliss, guaranteed.
