Nightfall by Michael Parkes
The New Moon@ 21 Sagittarius symbolizes new beginnings, with extra kick. That’s because we also have Uranus turning direct after a lengthy retrograde period, right on the new moon’s heels.

What’s the significance? Let’s recap.
The New Moon happens every month and represents cycles of new beginnings, fresh starts. You look to the sign the new moon is in and find ‘where’ that sits in your natal chart to amp up support and enthusiasm. Uranus links to qualities of experimentation and forward thinking, humanitarianism and the desire for space and freedom. This is where we find our ‘jump outside the box’ originality and willful, rebellious tendencies. The symbolic retrograde motion may have coincided with intensification of these energies, leading to a lot of anticipation. Sort of like a rubber band being slowly pulled back. With a New Moon AND Uranus turning direct, we have the equivalent of that rubber and going ‘snap’, launching everything we’ve been incubating over the last five months.
Knowing where this energy is ‘happening’ in our inner landscape can give us a feeling of empowerment and choice, as opposed to wondering ‘why is this happening to me?’ Feel the difference? Things are about to shoot forward, and don’t consider for a moment that you aren’t driving! You own the captain’s seat!
Here are some tips based on where Aries is in your chart, and the Sagittarius New Moon degree. You can read your sun sign (which shows where Aries and Sag are in the ‘solar chart’) as well as the actual house the early degrees of Aries (and 21 Sagittarius) occupy in your natal chart. If you aren’t sure where that is, follow the tutorial steps or the Video and learn. You can always ask for help in the comments. I or another astro savvy reader will jump in.
Happy rockets red glare! Woot!

All you have to do is say, ‘Make it so’ and collect the gold.

SAGITTARIUS/Aries 5th house – Sagittarius in the 1st house: Romantic hiatus, if any, is going to release, putting you on the path to the creative connections of your dreams.

Inner child ecstasy. Set points through the roof!
CAPRICORN/Aries 4th house – Sagittarius in the 12th house: Stalled changes in the home release as you seek balance between your connections to others and your authentic Self.

Nurture them there, as well as in the ‘real’ world for best results.
AQUARIUS/Aries 3rd house - Sagittarius in the 11th house: Don’t be surprised if your voice, communication style, writing and offerings are suddenly recognized, talked about, trending. You’ve a lot to say and it’s being heard. Barriers to self-expression come tumbling down. Make sure you get out and socialize and ramp up your social media. You’re up for meeting people who will facilitate great change. No lurking; be seen!
PISCES/Aries 2nd house - Sagittarius in the 10th house: Money, finances, business opportunities and overall mojo are up and happening, if you are being true to yourself. It’s the only crux. You can’t skip this one, or smudge it over. No matter how easy it is to be all things to all people, this is your call to be all things to, and for, yourself. Let authenticity reign. Also, work out what you want to ‘do’ with all that success!
If you’re feeling ‘agitated’ at the dawn of this new moon, it might be helpful to recall Deepak Chopra‘s words.
Objects, events, measurements and FACTS are modes of human perception, not attributes of the universe. –
If you need more support here, start with What Obstacles! Viva la change!
