If there has ever been a time to consciously create your life, it is NOW!
The moon is new in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a fire sign – the element of fire expresses an energizing life principle, which manifests as enthusiasm, faith, encouragement and the drive to express oneself. Think: confidence, initiative, and enthusiasm. Sagittarius is about aspirations toward an ideal, aptly represented by the archer. The new moon is an energetic portal for a new beginning.
What do I mean by consciously creating your life? We are powerful creators. We are always creating, whether we are conscious of it or not. If we are unconsciously creating, then our minds are creating from the beliefs and thought patterns of which we remain unaware. We are still attracting life experiences to us every moment of every day, we just remain passive in the process. If we are consciously creating, however, we have chosen to become aware of what beliefs are feeding our thoughts and emotions, what patterns we carry, and we have delved into what we truly desire in life and decided to be an active participant in making the necessary changes within ourselves to make those desires a reality.
At this moment, we can harness the new moon’s fresh reset vibe along with the Sagittarian enthusiasm, faith, and initiative, to take calculated aim at a new ideal for our lives – a new way of living – a new way of being in the world. Saturn is also in Sagittarius so this new moon is indeed touched by those energies, but it doesn’t have to be all limitations and restrictions. Saturn’s energy, when properly integrated, serves to make things real. So you have an aim, an ideal, a desire for the way you want to experience life…what do you need to do in the here and now, in quantifiable and measureable terms, to make it a reality? That’s what Saturn wants to know. He doesn’t have to be pissing all over your idealistic Sagittarian fire.
And running in the background all the way through 2016 will be the energy of the Saturn-Neptune square. This aspect is going to be churning away behind the scenes for a while, so we need to get used to working with it. Neptune in its sympathetic sign of Pisces is at its best putting us in touch with our intuition and our biggest dreams. At its worst it is fantasy, delusion, escapism and addiction. You must work it and not allow it to work you. Neptune says: “live the ideal to make it real,” and this whole configuration with Saturn is really bringing that idea home. Harness the potency of aligning with your true inner self and higher guidance and discovering what really sets your heart on fire. Saturn in Sagittarius is making your ideals a reality. These two planets are in a challenging aspect to each other (the square; or in other words they are making a ninety degree angle to one another so the energies are intersecting). This is asking you how you can meet the challenge of making your dreams a reality. The square tends to force growth. The message is: aspire to your ideals but ground them with a realistic plan and manageable, measured action steps, and then be ready to adjust and problem solve along the way.
And this new moon is just the time to really assess what sets your heart on fire. What do you want to experience in life? What are your most cherished dreams, ideals, philosophies? Finding the ones that are aligned with your most authentic self is the cornerstone to success in manifesting them. In order to do this, many times we have to dig down through layers of “shoulds”, limiting beliefs and fears. With this in mind, just in time for intention-setting with this new moon, I’m including here guidance on aligning with your most authentic desires.
A goal based on what someone else thinks you should do, or created out of a sense of obligation, whether it be for money or other reasons, does not have nearly the same power as a goal that is honoring your truest expression in the world.
A successful goal will be one that fills you with energy and will have a “why” behind it that truly moves you emotionally. Emotions create the vibrations off of which the Law of Attraction works. In order to successfully engage the Law of Attraction, you must be emotionally connected to your goal, and those emotions need to be aligned with what you want to attract. Your beliefs create your thoughts, which in turn create your emotions, so you also need to “clear the fear” by clearing out any limiting beliefs running beneath the surface of consciousness that would be in conflict with, and therefore block, what you are trying to create.
To unearth and clarify your most authentic intentions and goals:
Now compare the three exercises and notice the repeating themes or correlations. These are your core desires and feelings – the things you most want to create in life and the feelings you most want to experience. You can now use them as your road map, setting intentions and goals and creating action steps around them thereby consciously creating your life.
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” ~Henry David Thoreau
