If 2017 has reminded us of anything, it’s that the future is never certain, but the cosmic signature of the upcoming Sagittarius new moon does suggest a much-needed shift in the coming weeks. The world is as it is, but our ability to remain hopeful and find faith is about to get a boost. Yes!
Saturn, a planet of harsh lessons and hard-won wisdom, has been traveling through the sign of Sagittarius since December 2014. This has meant three years of challenges in all the areas of life ruled by Sag—challenges to our beliefs and ethics, to our freedoms, our optimism, and to our faith that the truth will basically prevail.
We can see how this has played out in world events. And, when we turn inward, we'll likely see that we've faced similar challenges in our personal lives. Maybe you launched a business and kept your nose to the grindstone nonstop, when you expected more freedom as an entrepreneur. Perhaps becoming a parent made you question everything about who you are as a person, or you faced situations that proved good does not always trump evil and made you see beyond the duality of life.
Yep, it’s been REAL! As Saturn moves out of Sagittarius on the 19th, right after the Sagittarius new moon, it's an invitation to press reset in any places you’ve been feeling the Saturnian burn. Freedom-loving Sag is about to get its mojo back!
Since Mercury is also retrograde in Sag right now, this weekend is the perfect time for a mega end-of-year review. Actually, make that an end-of-three-years-of-Saturn-in-Sag review. The gift of a Saturn transit? Rock solid diamonds of wisdom from the lessons we’ve lived.
Use the following ritual to unearth these gems, and get ready to greet 2018 secure in the knowledge that you've got this.
