‘Tis the time of the year to open our hearts and minds, express gratitude for all the blessings the universe has bestowed on us, pick up the pieces of our past, move on from our losses and look ahead towards a positive 2023. Just as we are all set for the year-end Mercury retrograde for the final time in December, let us take note of another important astrophysical event which is the new moon in Sagittarius. This phenomenon is taking place on November 23 at 5.57 pm EST and at 4.27 am IST on 24 November 2022.
For the uninitiated, the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius is virtuous, bordering on being self-righteous and truth-seeking but also fun and adventurous. So, what does the new moon in Sagittarius mean for the 12 zodiac signs? However, before diving into this, let us first understand what exactly does the new moon imply and signify in astrological parlance.
New moon in Sagittarius: Meaning and importance
The new moon is characterised by the conjunction of the sun and the moon to the same degree, and as a result creating a common and powerful field of energy directly affecting the people on earth. Both the moon and the sun are close to each other in the sky which creates certain intensities due to their unison.
In addition to this, there are also planetary influences of Mercury (known as the messenger of Gods) and Venus (planet of love and pleasure) in the Sagittarian new moon. This is called ‘Stellium’ in astrology and it is interesting to note that the collective influence of these bodies propels the laws of attraction.
Thus the synergy created is highly regarded to manifest, set goals and often symbolise new beginnings. And hence, the new moon in Sagittarius is a perfect year-ender to give us a much-required closure.
