On Dec 20th, 2017 Saturn will change signs from vision-creating Sagittarius into hard-working, responsible Capricorn. For those of you who are clear on your Authentic Purpose and Personal Vision, this shift will help you lay strong foundations for professional growth and expansion until March 2020. If you are not yet clear, it's OK. It will eventually surface as the universe will continue to push you to dig and delve until you identify what's true for you. And when you're clear, you'll be able to start building and put the real you out into the world.

The good news is if you are in the "struggling to connect to your Purpose" category, the last New Moon for 2017 provides a really powerful opportunity to do so. If you are already clear, this Moon will be very powerful for setting intentions around what you want to do with it.
A win-win for everyone.
The symbol of Sagittarius is the Archer, otherwise known as the truth seeker who hits the road to explore the world and make sense of life. It represents the big picture, freedom, higher learning, philosophy, psychology and religion.
When the Moon is in this sign, it helps us connect to what is most meaningful to us and what our purpose is. It supports us to set our sights on what we want to do in the world and what we need to learn in order to do that.
WHAT IS THE NEW MOON?
Every 29 1/2 days, the Moon travels through an 8 phase lunar cycle. The New Moon phase is the first of the cycle and occurs when the Moon is at the exact same degree in the Sky as the Sun.
From Earth she therefore appears as a Black Moon.
The New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another and is a POTENT time for starting things anew to manifest the dreams of our Heart.
It might feel like a quiet time, when life is veiled in darkness and things are brewing... but for thousands of years it's been considered a powerful time for planting seeds, making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or beginning any new project

WHY THIS NEW MOON IS POWERFUL FOR CONNECTING TO YOUR PURPOSE
The New Moon will take place on Dec 18, 2017 at 5.30pm (AEDT) at 26 deg 31 minutes Sagittarius. The extra power in this moon comes from 3 factors.
1. It is next to (conjunct) Saturn in it's last few days in Sagittarius where it has urged us all to “do the work” to connect to our personal and global vision. Two days after the new Moon, Saturn will move on from Sagittarius into Capricorn changing the energy into “expansion” mode, ie building on our personal vision and actioning our purpose.
2. The Moon, Sun and Saturn are located in the “Galactic” centre in the sky (the centre of the milky way). This position in the heavens is considered to be highly intuitive or psychic so it brings an extra load of insight to help you clarify your vision before we settle into building mode when Saturn moves into Capricorn on the 20th December 2017.
3. The Moon is making a supportive (trine) connection to Uranus. Unconventional, innovative and unexpected ideas are more likely to come through to help you trigger change.
