Guided Meditation for the Sagittarius Moon Cycle 2021- astrological moon journaling
Welcome, dear friends, to this astrological moon journaling guided meditation,
For the Sagittarius Moon Cycle 2021.
As we sit upon the Earth, our view of the Moon and Sun alignment at this New Moon is a Total Solar Eclipse, so there is energy around opportunities for your personal beginnings or endings.
Using Universal Time, the dates are December 4th, 2021 to January 2, 202
In our journaling meditation for this moon cycle, we will use imagery prompts from the Sabian Symbols for the astrological degree at each phase. Open your compassionate heart toward the highest and best for this moon cycle.
Please use an ongoing grounding exercise that works for your individual needs through this guided meditation, feel free to pause the recording to do your own journaling.
Gather your journal, pen, or pencil to write your emergent intuitive journaling sentences during this session.
Gather your natal astrological chart if you are working with it today- to identify the degree of each moon phase in your natal chart houses, providing you with personalized prompts for your journaling.
To help us with grounding before we begin, let’s take this next moment to do some slow deep breathing, using your own rhythm.
The moon’s gradually changing reflective light provides a guiding template for personal and collective nurturance and comfort. Connect with the moon right now – perhaps you may know where it is in your sky at this moment. Visualize a shimmering thread that goes the full distance between you and the moon.
This gravitational thread is tied with the ocean’s tides, our own cycles of blood, and all cycles of life and regeneration here on our planet.
The ancient repeating pattern of light and darkness of the moon’s phases calls to us, inviting us again today- for self-reflection from our inner knowledge – and – supporting us together to experience a state of intuitive listening.
Let’s now begin our Moon journaling together.
