What’s Up in Your Chart?
Tips for How the Sagittarius New Moon Can Affect You Personally.
Everyone has the Sagittarius New Moon influence in one, or more areas of their chart. Here are a few areas of your chart where you can experience the Sagittarius New Moon influence:
- What house is Sagittarius located in your natal astrology chart? This is where new beginnings, new ventures, new ideologies and all things Sagittarian can be newly born.
- Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius whose natural placement in the zodiac is the 9th house which represents higher education, foreign travel, beliefs, religion, ideology, the higher mind.
- Jupiter is the old ruler of Pisces (modern ruler Neptune which governs the 12th house of the unconscious mind). By all indications what transpires now has far reaching ramifications on very deep psychic levels. Our attitudes from the past are being expanded and potentially new world views seeded on a global level. How much will past ideologies, beliefs and attitudes influence you and society at large in the future?
- What personal planets are located in your 9th and 12th houses? Do you have any easy flowing, or harsh aspects to one, or both of these houses from one or more of your personal planets?
- What house is your natal Jupiter located in your natal astrology chart? Is there a harmonious, or stressful contact between your Jupiter and your 9th (or 12th) house?
- As Jupiter is transiting the sign of Taurus ruled by Venus, all themes related to Venus (love, pleasure, material comfort), along with the usual Jupiterian themes, will be greatly energized.
The moon moves quickly through each sign and house, so whatever happens, though it may leave a lasting impact upon your psyche, the emotions will be transient.
