Auspicious New Moon in Sagittarius
December 11, 2015 (2:27 a.m.)
“The Universe is in your favor, and life is in your favor – even if, sometimes, things don’t happen the way you wanted or the way you expected. Freedom means not being tied to absolutely anything. Only when one is no longer attached to anything can one sustain ecstasy, joy without cause and an enduring contentment that nothing can deter.” ~Sri Prem Baba
December 11 marks the zenith point for the last New Moon of 2015. Occurring in the zodiac sign of Sagittarius it is associated with the center of our galaxy — the position of the black hole. This location is referred to by the Mayans as the “road to awe.” They revered it as the “cosmic womb of the great mother” and it is the celestial point in space where our solar system is currently making its 26, 000-year cyclic passage. As you likely know, the Mayans have an extraordinary astronomical calendar that predicts the occurrence of this sacred passageway of our solar system from 1980 through 2016. They believe it is during this time period that humanity will undergo an unprecedented spiritual rebirth.
Sagittarius and the center of our galaxy represent “wisdom” or “truth consciousness.” The cosmic light emanating from the center of our galaxy is intended to transform and purify each of us into an unprecedented awakening! This awakening is the truth consciousness that we are not separate from divine. It is this truth we will each ultimately seek and are destined to realize.
As a fiery and freedom oriented sign, Sagittarius is also associated with travel, abundance, learning, inspiration, optimism, joy, nature and most importantly, that which provides purpose and meaning in our lives. If you are seeking a new direction this auspicious lunation is a powerful time to intend and follow through on goals that will support you.
Because New Moons represent new beginnings and Sagittarius highlights freedom, this is an opportune time to contemplate the areas of your life where you feel trapped or prevented from manifesting your truest desires. Then, set a course of action to create the freedom needed to embark on your desired new endeavors and journeys. Let this powerful New Moon inspire you to find meaning, optimism and joy for your future and gratitude for the life you are living.
Gather with others in ceremony and meditation and celebrate this extraordinary time that is catapulting you into your intended future. Lastly, be kind, gentle and loving with yourself, especially during the busy holiday season.
1. The Galactic Alignment zone is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980–2016. Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shits the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the Sun is one-half a degree wide 36 years is the suggested time window for the Sun to precess (journey) through the galactic equator. John Major Jenkins: http://www.alignment2012.com.
