Tomorrow is the new moon in Sagittarius. The Moon, the feminine receptive and yielding energy meets the Sun, the masculine penetrative and giving energy. For a moment, these are united. In alchemy, this is called ‘coniunctio,’ the Inner Marriage. These two principles in us are joined and working together. This is one of the main goals in Tantra.
The sign of Sagittarius comes after the sign of Scorpio. We have shed, we have let go, we have acknowledged the dark. Now we wait for the return of the Sun, the birth of the Sun. What can we call upon in ourselves to wait out the increasingly darker and colder days?
Faith. Belief. Enthusiasm (from Greek “possessed by a god”.) This is the Sagittarius way.
People are lighting candles, colored lights are being put out. To light the way, to help us see into the dark and wait. Trees that keep their green all year are decorated and celebrated to remind us of eternal life. Even when things get dark, the light is there, the light will return. Life continues.
Sagittarius is about sharing wisdom. Wisdom is gathered by harvesting the depth of our experiences. The ancients would have passed on their wisdom at this time of year to the younger generation, both as a teaching about the cycles and seasons (building faith) and as a time to gather around the center light, the fire, and share stories, connecting the tribe.
The Sagittarius centaur aims his arrow towards the horizon, towards tomorrow, towards the future. Sagittarius is a believer. Sagittarius is an expansive, seeking energy. Sagittarius knows “just over there,” something better is on its way.
But, for now we sit with our faith and wait. In the dark.
Are you keeping the faith and believing in a different tomorrow, while tending to the flame of now?
What god is possessing you?
Are you sharing your wisdom?
