The November New Moon In Sagittarius Is Bringing A Major Vibe Shift

The last few weeks have been putting everyone through the astrological wringer. Scorpio season in 2022 was plagued with a slew of heavy astro–weather moments, including Mars in Gemini settling into a very long and uncomfortable retrograde cycle, as well as the dramatic ending to the Taurus-Scorpio eclipse cycle for the year that flipped everything on its head. "... previously held structures are collapsing, paving the way for the creation of newer structures that seem attuned to the people we are becoming," professional astrologer Narayana Montúfar tells Refinery29. In fact, it's unlikely anyone made it out of Scorpio season unscathed this year. So, if you've been wondering whether there's any hope for the rest of 2022, or if you should just hibernate until New Year's Eve, you'll be pleased to know there's some good news on the horizon.

The new moon in Sagittarius this month is here to cause an energetic reset and bring with it an uplifting, bright, and magical energy. "[This is] one of the best possible times to align your daily life with the life you've been dreaming up. This energy will carry some to their brightest path," explains astrologer and tarot reader Peter Reilly on Twitter. If the last month was hard on you or you felt plagued with unexpected roadblocks and frustrations, the upcoming new moon in Sagittarius will give you the opportunity to experience fun and freedom again, along with the perfect chance to manifest the newest era of your life.

What to expect from November's new moon

On November 23, 2023, there will be a new moon in compassionate and energetic Sagittarius, bringing major growth, good fortune, and unexpected blessings, per Cafe Astrology. Last year, the new moon in Sagittarius was a solar eclipse, which caused a lot of personal doubt and frustration for many. This year, the new moon in Sagittarius is the first lunation since the Taurus-Scorpio eclipses closed out their cycle for 2022 (via Nylon). So, unlike last year where you might have felt challenged or disconnected during the new moon in Sagittarius, this year you'll feel a much more confident, uplifted, and idealistic.

The new moon in Sagittarius on November 23 is an ideal time to manifest the life you want and work on your personal spiritual practice. New moon cycles mark the beginning of a new era and wipe the cosmic slate clean so you can focus on building new structures, routines, and practices in your life. When the new moon occurs in a sign like fiery and flexible Sagittarius, it's easier to put action behind your goals and make the small changes that will put you closer to being on the right path. And what makes this particular lunation so special is the added boost it will get from Jupiter in Pisces going direct on November 23 after a four-month retrograde cycle (via These combined celestial forces will come together to boost your luck, clear your vision, and allow you the chance to see things from a new perspective.

What does the new moon in Sagittarius mean for each zodiac sign?

Writing for Astrology.TV, Kelli Fox explains that the new moon in Sagittarius will affect each sign differently. Because this new moon is occurring in the fixed fire sign Sagittarius, mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) will feel the influence the most directly, and can expect an extra busy but extremely rewarding month ahead of starting new projects and pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. In fact, all of the signs can tap into the benefic energy that this new moon is bringing with it. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) will benefit from focusing their manifestations on their career and finances, while fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) should focus on self–care and relaxation exercises (like a moon-gazing ritual).

Another important fact about this new moon is that it's the first non-eclipse new moon in Sagittarius since 2020, meaning the area of your birth chart that's ruled by Sagittarius has been under some serious pressure for the last few years (via Astrology Zone). You can expect this lunation to breathe new life into the area of your chart ruled by Sagittarius, and leave you feeling more curious and open–minded than you've felt in years, Persian astrologer @milkstrology explains on Twitter. For example, if Sagittarius sits on the 5th house cusp of your birth chart, you'll likely experience a newfound desire to tap into your playful, creative, and adventurous side after this new moon. Conversely, if Sagittarius is on your 10th house cusp, you might shift your focus and attention to furthering your career. Whatever the case, you'll have the luck of the new moon on your side as you set forth.
