What the New Moon in Sagittarius Means
While each New Moon brings with it the opportunity to turn over a new leaf and start manifesting your most important goals and dreams for that month, every New Moon brings its own individual energy due to the astrological sign that it transits through.
This month, the New Moon occurs in the Fire sign, Sagittarius. Fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sag – are known for their passionate energy, creativity, and boisterous personalities. When a New Moon occurs in a Fire sign, you can expect a certain amount of excitement and intensity in the air, burning like a crackling bonfire.
This also means that the Fire signs of the zodiac are likely to feel this energy the most, amplifying their already wild nature.
Sagittarius is also a Mutable sign, a sign known for its flexibility and ability to adapt to change. This is a perfect energy to pair with the inherent change and transformation associated with the New Moon.
The New Moon is also cozy in the sign of Sagittarius because New Moons are a time to think about the future and make your monthly wishes to the stars. Similarly, Sagittarius is a sign symbolized by the archer, who aims his arrows towards his target – goals, and dreams – and doesn’t let go until the targets are hit. You may feel more motivated than ever to go after what you want and work on manifesting your deepest desires.
This sign is also ruled by the expansive, benevolent planet, Jupiter. Jupiter looks to shower us with blessings, making this a particularly beneficial New Moon for making wishes and manifesting. Jupiter wants your worlds, both physical and mental, to expand outward and take up more space in the Universe.
Sagittarius rules the 9th house, the House of Philosophy in astrology. This means that your intellect and connection to spirituality will be heightened during this New Moon, making it an especially effective transit for Moon rituals.

What Happens When The New Moon Combines With a Solar Eclipse?
During a Solar eclipse, the Moon is positioned exactly between the Sun and the Earth. Solar eclipses only occur during a New Moon, and therefore they are connected to the same ideas of new beginnings and possibilities as a typical New Moon.
It’s important to keep an open mind and an open heart during Solar eclipses, as the energy can feel quite chaotic. This particular transit may open new doors or bring unexpected changes in your life that feel challenging or distressing at the moment – but the end result will be worth any frustration you may experience.
This is a time for some major growth in your life, especially with both the New Moon and the Sun being in the expansive sign of Sagittarius. Even if the energy makes you feel a bit frazzled, try to remind yourself that it will all be worth it in the end, as abundance is surely flowing your way.
Sagittarius New Moon & Solar Eclipse Themes
The main themes you’ll notice during this New Moon, and Solar eclipse in Sagittarius are:
- New beginnings
- New possibilities
- Embracing chaotic energy
- Enhancing passion
- Amplifying creativity

While you may experience one, two, or even all of these themes, how this transit affects you personally has a lot to do with your birth chart—specifically, where Sagittarius falls in your birth chart.

What the New Moon in Sagittarius Solar Eclipse Means for You
Although your birth chart plays a big role in how this transit will affect you, there are a few things you can expect. New Moons always encourage us to turn over a new leaf, as they signal the beginning of a new lunar cycle.
This energy is amplified by the fact that this is the last month of the calendar year, the time when we collectively look towards the future and feel a sense of wonder and possibility for the new year.
And what’s more is that this New Moon not only accompanies a Solar eclipse – a time of change and new opportunity – and both the Sun and the Moon are in the future-oriented, driven sign of Sagittarius.
All of this adds up to a month of excitement and hope for the future, a time when we imagine all of the possibilities of life and determine which goals and dreams we want to begin manifesting into our lives. And while this entire month will be powerful for attracting abundance and blessings, the New Moon and Solar eclipse are particularly potent.
Remember that while the New Moon Solar eclipse occurs on December 4th, 2021, the energy can be felt for about 48 hours before and after this transit occurs. So, plan accordingly!
Which Zodiac Signs Will Be Affected Most?
If you don’t know how prominently Sagittarius is placed in your birth chart, you may be wondering how strongly you’ll feel the effects of this magical transit. Fortunately, this will be a powerful transit for everyone on the planet – not just those with prominent Sag placements in their natal chart.
However, Fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius – are likely to feel this energy more powerfully than other signs. That applies to your primal triad, or your Sun sign, Rising sign, and Moon sign.
For instance, someone with a Leo Sun, a Moon in Aries, and a Sagittarius rising will be buzzing with electricity during this New Moon Solar eclipse.
But the fun isn’t just for the Fire signs. We can all expect a boost of creativity, passion, momentum, and sociability.

How to Get Lucky With the Sagittarius New Moon & Solar Eclipse
Now that we know more about this transit, you may be wondering how to make the most of this concentrated, dynamic energy. We’ve compiled a list of some simple tips and tricks that you can follow to make this the most powerful New Moon Solar eclipse you’ve ever encountered.
1. Aim High
Sagittarius is known as the archer, the centaur who never leaves their abode without their bow and arrow intact. When they see a goal they want to reach, they keep their eye on the prize, and their arrow pointed at the target.
Sag is not a sign that simply takes what it can get – it aims high and doesn’t give up until the prize has been won. That is one lesson for you during this New Moon Solar eclipse – set your sights high.
This sign is concerned with the big picture, the end over the means. Sag wants to think about things on a grand scale – forgetting about settling for second best! Sag asks you to aim for the stars and to avoid even thinking about lowering that arrow to an easier, more attainable goal.
If you know what you want, this is the time to ask the Universe for it. Be as specific and precise as possible, and don’t even think about settling for less.
2. Let Optimism Rise
There is no room for Negative Nelly’s in the world of the bright and bubbly Sagittarius. Being ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius knows that the world is endless and expansive, and anything can happen within this unknowable realm. Sag also recognizes that like attracts like, meaning that focusing on the negative will only bring about more negativity to focus on.
That’s why it’s crucial that you take this transit as a sign, a beacon calling your spirit to head away from the darkness and towards the light. Your willingness to practice positivity may be the catalyst for all of your dreams coming true. When you set your sights on what you want and trust that the Universe will provide, it becomes much easier to trust any setbacks that occur along the way.
Think about it like this: it can be very frustrating when you’re running late to work. But you never know when a guardian angel is preventing you from being in the wrong place at the wrong time, protecting you from an accident. When you trust the Universe, you understand that everything happens for a reason – and when you don’t get what you want at the moment, it may be the Universe protecting you.
So, take this transit as the sign you’ve been looking for that the Universe cares for you and is working to bring all of the positivity and abundance in your life that you can handle.

3. Make Wishes
As Jupiter is a planet of benevolence and expansion, it brings a bit of luck into our lives. If Saturn is like the stern father of the zodiac, Jupiter is like the aunt or uncle that always comes over to your house bearing gifts and positive energy.
That means that during all of Sagittarius season, and particularly during this New Moon Solar eclipse in Sag, your luck will be looking up. This amplifies the results of any manifestation work you do during this transit.
Wishing for an increase in luck right now sends a message to the Universe, letting the celestial energy surrounding you know that you’re ready to receive abundance and blessings.
4. Be Specific with Your Manifestations
When it comes to manifestation work, we often think of things in vague terms:
- “I want to be happy.”
- “I want to attract a new car.”
- “I want to have a job that I love.”
But the Universe is more informed and willing to play along when you’re specific with your desires. Instead of asking for a new car, ask for the exact make and model you desire, down to the interior color and the price you want to pay. Instead of asking to be happy, think about the traits that would make you feel happier, like increased confidence or thicker skin.
Being specific about your wishes communicates to the Universe that you know exactly what you want, signaling that you’ve given it thought and truly made up your mind.
5. Express Your Inner Moon Child
We all have a Moonchild, a free spirit, living within our bodily vessel. Are you letting your Moonchild come out and play? Are you expressing yourself in bold and creative ways?
Sagittarius loves to explore the worlds both outside and inside ourselves, and this New Moon encourages you to do the same. This is the time to let your inner Moonchild step out into the daylight and guide you towards adventure and creative self-expression.
6. Focus on Loyalty
This year has been a real challenge, and you may feel like a part of yourself has been stripped away. You may have even given too much of yourself and your energy away, trying to improve the energy of the world surrounding you – a noble cause, to be sure, but one that can leave you feeling drained and emotionally exhausted.
As a Fire sign, Sagittarius is more aligned with self than other signs, encouraging you to be loyal to yourself. This is a time to think about your needs, your desires, your deepest wishes.
When you are loyal to yourself during a New Moon Solar eclipse such as this one approach, your manifestation work is amplified even further.

7. Explore What Excites You
Sag is a sign of passion, and the motto of Sagittarius could easily be, “More is more.”
Sag wants to explore it all, see it all, taste it all, feel it all – and have it all. This sign urges you to locate and follow your bliss, to spend time with the activities and subjects that spark a fire of passion within yourself.
This also ties into Sag’s intense focus on the big picture. Are you participating in activities that will bring you long-term joy or new skills that will last you for years to come?
8. Stroke Your Inner Fire
While the New Moon is a time of new beginnings, it also brings both literal and metaphorical darkness. The Moon is typically invisible to the naked eye during this transit, which means the night seems even darker – much as our emotions might.
You’re called to stoke your internal fire to bring light into this lunar phase. The days are shorter, the nights are longer, and the flames of your spirit are needed more than ever right now.
Fortunately, Sagittarius season awakens a light in you that may have been dampened by the waters of Scorpio season, so we all feel a bit brighter right now. Do whatever you need to do to make sure that your flame is shining a light in your own life.
Get Ready for This Exciting Transit!
This is an exciting transit that will give you the opportunity to begin planting the seeds of tomorrow. How you treat this powerful New Moon and Solar eclipse can determine how smoothly the next year of your life flows.
So, pay attention to your deepest desires and be genuine to your truest self right now. The New Moon and Solar eclipse in Sagittarius have the potential to shift things around and transform your life into the life you’ve always dreamed of.
