This week’s solar eclipse energy overshadows the new Moon’s presence in Sagittarius. Normally, a new Moon would be a time for setting intentions. Considering the intensity of an eclipse, however, it’s best to be intentionally introspective, as this celestial event opens a door to our highest aspirations. Tap into Sagittarius’s natural optimism as you evaluate your approach to manifesting your brightest vision.
Meanwhile, as the empowered Moon traverses the sky, it will cross the Galactic Center. This will give a special punch to the “great conjunction” of Jupiter and Saturn on the cusp of Aquarius (more on this next week).
This moment is best represented by the Sabian symbol for the degree in Sagittarius at which the eclipse occurs: A Bluebird at the Entrance. Bluebirds are a symbol of optimism and make a fitting companion to Sagittarius energy. Having one at the celestial doors of perception is a lucky thing. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! Make it a wonderful day.
