New Moon is when the Sun and the moon are conjunct, making the moon invisible from Earth. Meaning the moon is dark, and it's also the first lunar phase, the beginning of a whole new 28 days of lunar cycle. That's why new moon represents new beginnings, turning the page, starting anew. What makes this New Moon so special?? The fact that this is the last new moon of the " testing" year 2018, The fact that is the day after Mercury goes direct (look up Mercury retrograde) and the fact that is in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the optimistic and hopeful of the zodiac. Sagittarius is sincere, honest, generous, persevering (to the point of hard headedness) , dependable, extrovert, enthusiastic and likes changes. The new moon is a great time to set intentions and plan what is it that you want to manifest. An intention without a plan, is just a desire, an idea. Things that get planned by writing it down are more likely to come to life. This New Moon happens at 15 degrees of Sagittarius, 15 adds up to 6 (1+5=6) . 6 is the angel number of Balance. In Numerology 6 is the number of the caretaker. One of the biggest questions for this New Moon is: Are you giving so much, that there is nothing left for you?? Are you so worried about worldly affairs, that you have neglected your spiritual life?? Number 6 calls for us to go inward, to look within, to be still and get our affairs in order.
The flip side of Sagittarius is... Oh wait you thought everything was gonna be positive? Rainbows and butterflies? Nope! Sagittarius can also be overly confident, impulsive, defiant, uncompromising and aggressive. Also, even tho Sagittarius is ruled by "cool daddy" Jupiter, when it comes to degrees, in the 15th degree there is a strong Mars influence. Mars is fiery and aggressive also, so watch out for arguments and ego driven controversies. Then again, this might just come at the right moment for you to set boundaries or cut some people out of your life. There are 5 planets in mutable signs, so holding on to our fixed way about life wont help us. We have to embrace change, we have to stay open minded and willing to change direction at any given moment. My advice is, if things get to steamy, jump in your car or a plane and go on a trip, since Mercury is now direct and Sagittarius is favorable for travel, it might be a great idea. Just watch out you don't end up fighting with the flight attendant hahahahaha.
As a tarot reader, I had to pull some cards for the new moon, of course. I got the...
10 of Pentacles: Inheritance, legacy. Emotional, financial and material wealth aka living your best life and leaving something for your children to do the same.
King of Pentacles: Materialistic satisfaction, worldly success, luxury, financial stability (please don't neglect your soul)
Judgement: Being finally judge rightfully. A period of your life coming to an absolute end, giving way to new beginnings. Resurrection and awakening.
With all that said my friends, Happy New Moon!

My name is Madre Agua. I prefer to be called Bruja. Im located in Rhode Island at the moment, but I am naturally from Cuba. As a Cuban i grew up around afro-cuban and indigenous traditions ( yoruba, lucumi, kimbisa, palo monte, etc). I love learning from all traditions, and at one point considered myself a chaos witch, but came to the realization, certain traditions are better when they are not mix with other ( you live and you learn).
