Budd tells mbg that new moons in general are often about fresh starts and planting energetic seeds. “This is especially true when the moon happens in the early degrees of a sign, which is the case this month,” she adds.
And as the AstroTwins previously wrote for mbg, Sagittarius new moons are all about adventure, fire, the unknown, and wildness. To that end, Budd explains, Sag new moons are an extra potent time for setting intentions or preparing for anything related to travel, learning, educational goals, spiritual adventures, other cultures, philosophical expansion, and exploration in general.
Due to Mercury’s involvement, it’s also favorable time for setting or recommitting to goals related to teaching, speaking, writing, and communication, Budd adds.
For a ritual to work with your intentions, astrology expert Imani Quinn tells mbg she recommends doing some candle magic on the new moon and leading up to the full moon. Candle magic is fitting under a fire sign moon, and as you do it, “Use that candle, watch how it burns, and see how it’s sending you messages about those intentions and manifestations,” Quinn says.
