The lunar cycle is full of ups and downs, but every part of the process is important. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs affected by the new moon, you know that beginnings can feel just as intimidating as endings often feel bittersweet. If you’re currently staring at a long road ahead, know that it always seems impossible to reach the finish line when you haven’t even taken your first step!
The most climactic moments of the lunar cycle to happen at two different moments: the new moon and the full moon. While the latter is intense and dramatic, the former is a more subtle experience, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful. In fact, the new moon is what launches the whole experience, as it represents the beginning of a new chapter. The themes and situations that tend to pop up during a new moon are often incredibly meaningful, revealing opportunities ripe for the taking. And if you make a point to start a project or commit to a new relationship during a new moon, it will have *that* much more potential to succeed!
Taking place on November 23 at 5:57 p.m. ET, the upcoming new moon takes place in open-minded, expansive and free-spirited Sagittarius, shining a light on the unique way you perceive a connection with the world around you. Ruled by Jupiter—planet of growth and positivity—this new moon wants you to set aside preconceived notions and embrace the idea that there is still *much* left to learn. Sagittarius is both the teacher and the student, so give yourself an assignment that allows you to gain new experiences and learn new things.
Forming a trine with Jupiter in motivating and courageous Aries, this new moon has an incredibly hopeful vibe to it. However, don’t expect immediate results. Because this new moon takes place while Mars—planet of drive and vitality—is currently retrograding through Gemini, you may have tons of ideas but less than enough energy to bring them all to fruition. This is a powerful time for daydreaming, because the time for doing is soon to follow.
As the year comes to a close, it’s a beautiful time to simply envision the life you want. This new moon will also form a beautiful connection with Neptune—planet of dreams and universal love—making your imagination feel that much more vivd. It will also allow you to forgive yourself for not being exactly where you want to be, because the improvements you’ve made have made all the difference.
If your sun sign, moon sign or—most importantly—your rising sign falls under any of the following zodiac signs, the upcoming new moon in Libra could signify a meaningful turning point in your relationships. Here’s why:
