New Moon in Sagittarius, November 26, 2019

The usual exuberant Sagittarius spirit will be toned down on this New Moon at 04° 03′ Sagittarius on 26 November 2019, 07:06 AM PST. Being knee deep in mud due to all the planets in earth and water will do that. With a little luck, Sagittarius’s specialty, this situation will work in everyone’s favor. The combination of fiery enthusiasm and compassionate practicality can be a winner, so suck it up and think positive!

The Sagittarius luminaries need to focus on staying upbeat since they sit between Mars in Scorpio and Venus in Capricorn, connected to both with semi-sextiles. Then there is an inconjunct to Uranus in Taurus, an uneasy aspect that needs to be handled with care. The challenge is learning to be creative while working within clearly defined boundaries . . . something we need to be accustomed to with Jupiter joining Saturn and Pluto in budget minded Capricorn all too soon.

Venus, Mars and Uranus create a flowing triangle with Venus at the apex, soothing the Mars-Uranus opposition. For anyone who needs an unorthodox but down to earth solution to a problem, this is a great time to find one. This is especially true when it comes to solving financial issues, though it may work as well in the love and romance department.

The really sweet triangle pattern is one with Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces with both sextile the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about exercising tough love to the benefit of all involved. Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn is the ultimate wise woman who has lived a long, interesting life and come out smiling. The Mercury-Neptune trine in water combines intuition with knowledge obtained from delving deeply into the facts, both pleasant and unpleasant. Keep in mind this information will likely be delivered in a calm, matter of fact manner with no frills and minimal drama. It ought to come with a warning saying “ignore at your own peril”, so please pay attention!

Jupiter in Sagittarius does make an out-of-sign conjunction with Venus in Capricorn, adding a touch of flair to the rather restrained Venus. Otherwise it can feel like Jupiter is in a waiting pattern before entering Capricorn on December 2. We’ll see a very different side of Jupiter then, much more organized and focused. Perhaps we can translate some of Jupiter in Sagittarius’s inspirations into reality.

New Moons are always good for making a fresh start and this New Moon in Sagittarius is excellent in that regard. There is no getting around the powerful Capricorn influence in play now, so we’ll need to place extra emphasis on the practical side. Don’t forget to take other people’s needs into consideration and always treat everyone with kindness, patience and tolerance. Peace and joy to all.
