Well, you can add even more ~thoughts~ (don't worry, good ones!) to the mix, thanks to the new moon in Sagittarius that’s happening on November 26.
Astronomy recap: A new moon happens when the earth lines up with the sun, making the moon pretty much invisible from where you're standing. There are 12 new moons a year, and each is synced up with a different astrological sign.
Since this new moon is happening in the sign of Sagittarius, it’s going to make you feel super optimistic, says Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta. Buuut there’s way more to it than that. Here’s what else you can expect:
What does the New Moon in Sagittarius mean for your zodiac sign?
Sometimes, doing all that you do—day in and day out—can make it hard to focus on the big picture. But the new moon will help you look beyond what’s in front of you and believe that you can achieve your dreams, Page says. Yep, brace yourself now, because it’s a little sappy.
How will the New Moon in Sagittarius affect the rest of your year?
For starters, you’ll get a serious confidence boost and, tbh, that's not an unwelcome guest to your holiday party. Sure, you might do something totally out there, like move across the country to pursue a dream, but you can also just end up being a little more ballsy in everyday life.
You’ll feel comfortable doing everything from talking up an intriguing someone at a bar to asking your boss for a one-on-one meeting so you can pitch some new ideas. And all of that can lead to bigger and brighter things in so many areas of your life.
When is the next new moon?
The next new moon is on December 26 in the sign of Capricorn, and it actually coincides with a solar eclipse (score!). During this time, you’ll crave feeling useful to other people and will do what you can to get validation from them.
Until then, bathe in the wave of confidence you’ll be handed this month. You deserve it.
