How to Make the Most of the New Moon Total Eclipse in Sagittarius!

Our new moon phase is a potent activator of all of our wildest dreams! It’s the master manifesting energy, the rocket launch for the things that we desire.

The New Moon on December 4th is an extra special one! Not only will we be celebrating a new lunar period, we are also going to be undergoing a total solar eclipse. If new moons are the starting point for our intentions, think of a total solar eclipse as an extra boost of fuel for our intention setting. Total solar eclipses bring in surprises, new beginnings, and extra good luck. Be open to how the universe wants to reward you around the beginning of the month! Keep your mind open to the unexpected coming your way! 

December is a month of slow down, reflection, deep hibernation, and preparation for the warmer months to come. With this New Moon occurring in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius, we can expect to have a more optimistic outlook on our big plans and projects. You can take a step back and see how far you have come over the last 12 months! Sagittarius is represented by the archer, and is an adventurous, free flowing spirited energy. This energy understands that life is meant to be experienced and that new opportunities are endless. With this new moon phase, think about how you would like to grow and expand moving into the new year. What risks are you being asked to take in order to follow your destined path? Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, which is considered by astrologers to be the luckiest planet in the solar system. It’s a great time to take bets on yourself, it will more than likely work out in your favor. Remain open to how your plans decide to pan out! Staying too rigid during this time will feel confined and restrictive. 

For this New Moon phase, allow yourself to dream big! It’s the final new moon of the year, an incredibly powerful time. If you have any remaining items on your 2021 to-do list, you can utilize this energy to help wrap up the end of the year. The limit does not exist when it comes to a power packed total solar eclipse! Once you have set your new moon intentions, commit to being open to how they want to come to fruition. Keep your eyes peeled to all the hidden gems in front and around you! You are more blessed, abundant, and favored than you can imagine.

Here are some tips on how to utilize this Sagittarius Total Solar Eclipse New Moon energy to its fullest:

  • Write a list of all the things you would like to accomplish before the end of the year. Make sure it’s not just a list of practical things, but big ideas you’ve been wanting to get a jump start on. This will help you get clear on where you would like to place your manifestation energy! 
  • Book or plan a trip for yourself! Whether it’s a quick weekend getaway or a foreign land baecation, Sagittarius loves to explore unknown lands. We can have such a beautiful perspective shift when we change locations. Listen to where your intuition would like to explore and follow your gut feeling!
