The mind is a great servant, but a terrible master.
After an intense few weeks of a very edgy Mercury retrograde, now we are in the post shadow period, still integrating all the learning the retrograde brought us. Tonight’s new moon in Sagittarius is a welcome shift from the watery Scorpio intensity to the fiery expansiveness of Sagittarius. In order to understand the planetary influence under this new moon, we first need to understand the domains of Mercury, Moon and Sagittarius. Mercury rules the mind, and our intellect (amongst other things), while the ruler of Jupiter, Sagittarius is the ruler of the higher mind. This is the aspect of our mind that is closer to our Soul, our higher consciousness.
