Dark Moon in Sagittarius

This is a great time for reflection, meditation, and introspection. It is a time to review the intentions set at the beginning of the moonth and reflect on where you stand. It is a great time to let go of the old and tired things in order to make space for new and exciting beginnings.

The moon is currently back in Sagittarius, where we started this moonth. Sagittarius is all about expanding the horizons of the mind through higher education, personal quests, and adventure.

Sagittarius Rules Over:

  • Quest for Truth: Religion, Prayer, Places of Worship, Honesty, Frank Communication

  • Natural World: Connections to Nature, Intuition, Peace of Mind

  • Freedom: Spontaneity, Adventure, Positive Expectations, Exploration, Foreign Travel

  • Law: Attorneys, Lawsuits, Ethics, Morality, Conscience, Court Proceedings

  • Optimism:Faith, Friendliness, Good Luck, Generous Spirit, Gallantry

  • Higher Education: Mentors, University, Philosophy, Answers & Solutions

  • Carelessness: Shortcuts, Excesses, Extravagance, Assumptions, Blunt Communication

  • Health: Hips, Liver, Sciatica, Thighs, Upper Legs

Take a few long deep breaths.

On the inhale visualize your intentions manifested.

On the exhale visualize yourself releasing the things that no longer fit in the life you visualize for yourself.

Continue for a few minutes until you feel ready to answer the questions below (or just pick one question or if you know what you want to release skip the questions).

Use your Intuition or pull some Tarot/Oracle Cards

1. Is there anything holding you back from your quest for truth, from connecting to nature, or anything in the Sagittarius list referred above?

2. Are you holding on to excess, extravagance, or assumptions?

3. What are you willing to let go of?

Now it’s time for some Burning and Banishing

Herb Craft

Things you will need:

  1. Fireproof bowl (or pot)

  2. Bay Leaves (or paper)

  3. Sharpie or Pen

  4. Matches or candle

The Ritual

  • Write out things you want to banish on the bay leaves or paper. Be specific, for example: “release fear about X” “banish limiting belief about X” instead of "fear" or "limiting belief". I would limit this to 10.

  • Take the Bay leaf (or paper) and light with the flame from the matches or candle, saying out loud (or quietly) what you have written.
