New Moon in Sagittarius

Do you sweat to seek the truth and...

December New Moon 2013

nothing but the truth?

Today we have an opportunity to absorb the lessons of Sagittarius and once again affirm our intention to seek truth, speak truth, and to live truth.

With the body of a horse and the head of a man, mythology describes Sagittarius as the constant seeker. But what is it that we are seeking? That depends on how we express the archetype of Sagittarius. Like all archetypes, expression runs the gamut from shadow to light, and that’s built right into the myth. Who is in control of the Sagittarian’s arrow so tightly drawn, the body or the head? Is the arrow’s passion motivated by the body’s wants, perhaps power, fame, glory, greed, lust…. or is the mind focused on the desire for truth? And… is not the attainment of a focused mind the journey of every man? Sagittarius is the sign associated with discipleship, and we can understand why.

Perhaps the greatest potential for downfall with Sagittarius is the ability to rationalize. Rationalizing one’s behavior is a form of lying, mostly to oneself, and this is always disempowering.

In order to know truth and speak truth and live in truth, we must be willing to fling open the doors of the heart with great humility. This gets tricky, for everyone has their own perception of truth, and it seems a heck of a lot of us don’t want to budge, but budging is inevitable. Hubris is deadly. So we are challenged to keep the heart-filter open as we dance this tango with others, our perceptions weaving in and about. This dance can be entertaining – it’s a choice point.

Great compromise is necessary. An open heart is necessary. Respect is necessary. Honesty is necessary. Intuition and good instincts are a must.

Now, raise your right hand and repeat after me...
