As we reach the last month of the year, we start reflecting on where we have been, how far we have come, and what lies ahead for the new year.
We may be feeling anxious to know what 2019 will bring, or we may even be feeling relieved that we can leave the heavy weight of 2018 in the past.
2018 has been a year of patience. It has been a year of strong inner growth and a time to really reflect on the direction of our lives.
The December New Moon on the 6-7th brings the last lunar cycle of the year and is also the last lunar cycle before we enter Eclipse season in January.
Falling in the sign of Sagittarius, this New Moon is going to help shine a light on all the growing we have done, and will help us to see just how far we have traveled.
For most of 2018, we had this slower energy coursing through the months that may have left us feeling held back, restricted, or unsure of how to move forward. We may have had ideas or plans, but we may have found it hard to execute them to the fullest of our potential.
2018 was really a year for inner growth, which is why we may not have traveled as far as we would have liked to in a physical sense. On an inner level however, it is likely we have moved leaps and bounds, and made huge progress when it comes to our spiritual and emotional development.
The keyword for 2018 was definitely patience, and it’s likely that all of us in some way, were called to practice the art of being patient.
With all of this inner growth occurring over the year, we may not have really been able to see our progress. But that is all changing with the energy of this Sagittarius New Moon.
Under the lunar vibes of this Dark Moon, we are going to see just how far we have traveled, and who we have now become. We are going to get a glimpse of just how much we have grown and achieved throughout the year.
Often we look for physical milestones and achievements to track our progress and success, but inner milestones are just as important.
2018 was a year of growth, and in some monumental way, something inside you shifted. Something inside you has blossomed, and you are about to find out what that is.
All you need to do is use the energies of the December New Moon to open your eyes, your mind, and your heart, and travel within so you can witness what is now in bloom.
You are blooming, you have done the work. The time has come now to rest, enjoy, and seek adventure as we enter into the holiday season.
The December New Moon also has a very adventurous spark to it. Stepping out of your comfort zone, traveling, and socializing will all be favored under this energy.
If there were heated things that stirred for you around the November Full Moon on the 23rd, know that there may be some closure or some revisitation of these events as well.
Know that there will be an opportunity under this New Moon to smooth things over or to ease any tensions that may have been bubbling around this time.
What’s done is done, and what’s in the past is in the past. Don’t allow these events to weigh you down and block you from the beauty and light that shines within. Choose to let things go. Choose to allow joy to flow through your life.
Sagittarius energy is always helping us to look on the bright side of things and to focus on what we feel grateful for. Sagittarius energy is always helping us to see the bigger picture, and to view things from a more expansive point of view.
Sometimes we get so bogged down in our own thoughts and feelings, and in the drama of it all, that we can very quickly start constructing our own falsehoods of reality.
When we find ourselves so bogged down in this type of thinking, we have to step back, we have to get some space between our thoughts, and we have to try to look at things from the outside.
By taking this approach, it helps us to see things we may not have noticed before, and it also helps us to focus on the truth of the situation.
If there is an issue in your life that is rife with drama or needs to be cleared, perhaps take this approach and see if the energies of the December New Moon can shine a new light or bring a new wisdom to the situation.
December is definitely a month of the year to focus on the many blessings that surround you and to practice gratitude for all that you have.
Try not to focus on all the things that you should or shouldn’t have done, and instead focus on how far you have come. 2018 was a challenging year, but you made it and you are stronger now because of it.
Celebrate how far you have come. Celebrate all you have achieved. Be proud of yourself, for here you are still standing, still glowing, still interested in becoming the best you can be. And this is always worth celebrating.
