Today, the year’s only Sagittarius new moon powers up your intense eighth house, helping you get clearer about the kinds of people and scenarios you’re willing to allow into your life.

You could wake up with the clarity you’ve been waiting for, as the year’s only Sagittarius new moon lands in your twelfth house of intuition, introspection and closure.

This isn’t quitting; it’s smart time management.
Your collaborative nature gets supercharged by today’s Sagittarius new moon, the only one of the year, and it just happens to land in your eleventh house of group activity.
