The New Moon on November 26th welcomes us to Sagittarius season, a time to expand our horizons and rediscover adventure. Where Scorpio season asked us to dig deep into our core, Sagittarius inspires us to widen our perspective and expand our consciousness. The energies of this season present us with opportunities to go beyond our comfort zones and re-examine our self-imposed limitations in every way possible.
Sagittarius is often depicted as an archer, but in reality, she is the philosopher, student and gypsy all in one. Throughout Sagittarius season, we can align with each of these archetypes to expand our energy and vibration. The gypsy archetype asks us to explore faraway lands, or different perspectives, in search for truth and knowledge. The gypsy has no judgment. She views the world for what it is: a beautiful array of frequencies. This aspect of Sagittarius reminds us that there are no right or wrong ways to live; we are all entitled to our own version of reality, with differing vantage points that make each of us special and unique.
The Sagittarian student archetype encourages us to keep an open mind, to feed our curiosity and to pursue knowledge and truth for the expansion of our consciousness. The student is concerned with challenging and stretching mental limitations. This season, re-examine the way you define your world. For instance, look at the meanings you assign energies like joy, happiness, abundance and love. How can you understand these concepts differently beyond your existing perspectives, and how can you call in a different form of that same vibration? The Sagittarian philosopher on the other hand, reminds us to find meaning through feeling and letting our intuition guide us to the bigger picture of our life. Begin to understand that no experience is good or bad, they are all a part of our expansive journey.
In working with these three aspects of Sagittarius, remember that the emphasis of the season is experience. The fiery energies of Sagittarius inspires courage in us to go forth and seek direct experience of the richness of all life has to offer. This season, have as many new experiences as possible with an open mind. Let go of expectations and approach every situation without judgment of what’s supposed to unfold. As you take leaps of faith, each one will become its own adventure if you believe that the best scenario will unfold. Trust that everything is happening as it should.
This New Moon, we will be working with the energies of Citrine crystal. The Citrine crystal has also been used as a decorative gem for thousands of years. As early as 300 BC, Citrine was a favourite item for jewelry makers beginning with the ancient Greeks and Romans. Later in the 17th century, Queen Victoria made Citrine popular by wearing it as jewellery. Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energising and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.
Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed.
Discover new horizons and set forth bravely on new adventures this season with the energies of Citrine. Join us at HOA for our Sagittarius New Moon Ritual. Book your spot today!
