new_moonThe first new moon for 2013 falls in the constellation of Sagittarius. The symbol for Sagittarius is the Centaur, half man and half horse. You may remember the symbol, the man is holding an arrow pointing at a target. Looking at this symbol, I have always had the feeling that whatever Sagittarius was focusing on, the arrow hit the center of the target. The nakshatra for this new moon is “Uttara Ashadha”, which is associated with insight and goals that are beneficial to all. Careful use of leadership qualities are best used in this nakshatra. New Moons offer a potential time for manifesting and creating our goals. Here is where your new moon journal can help you. What are your goals? With the beginning of a new year, there is no better time than now to list your goals. Your list may include short term and long term goals. Remember the Centaur, see yourself accomplishing your goals.
Happy New Moon!
