New Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius – RESPOND

On the 14th of December (16:16 GMT) we have the Sagittarius New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse (16:13 GMT). The eclipse isn’t visible in the UK as the sun has already set (you can see where the eclipse is visible on this map), but the energy will still be felt. It is extra dark.

The moon in front of the sun creates a portal, and an invitation; Do you want things to stay how they are right now? Or do you want to step into a different but unknown future? How will you respond? It is time to choose your next adventure, and to work out why – and who – you are called to adventure for.

“I should like to save the Shire, if I could – though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them. But I don’t feel like that now. I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Divination/ Journalling Prompts

Ritual/ Spellwork/ EveryDayMagic Suggestions

*Solar eclipses are not easy times to do magic, you really need to know what you’re doing and be sure that the eclipse energy is compatible with what you hope to achieve, for this reason its simpler to avoid spellwork at this time.
*That said, simple rituals to help with moving forward/ crossing the portal would be effective and especially if combined with a cleansing – a ritual bath would be good.
*Sagittarius is about truth and big adventure so journaling/ pulling cards/ vision boarding etc what you would like your new quest/ adventure to be would be good, just wait until the eclipse is passed before taking action.
