How The October 25 New Moon Will Affect You If You're A Sagittarius

What a new moon in Scorpio means for Sagittarius

Because it's the first phase of the lunar cycle, the new moon is associated with beginnings, making it a preferred time to start something new (per Yoga Journal). Bustle also explains that the moon is representative of our inner selves — think emotions, instincts, memories — and the darkness brought by the new moon phase is conducive to reflection.

Placed in the context of Scorpio season, the Oct. 25 new moon brings on new significance. Associated with deep, mercurial emotions and transformation (per Mind Body Green), Scorpio is an intense sign that brings a sense of completion to this new lunar cycle (per Bustle). Under the influence of the planet Venus, this Scorpio new moon also carries connotations of relationships and intimacy (per My Imperfect Life).

This new moon is a great time for Sagittarius to turn your bold, free-spirited energy inward to foster reflection and self-growth (via Bustle). For some, this will involve a temporary return to your roots, revisiting family or old friends. Overall, it's important to be open to new beginnings and contemplation during this time.

What the partial solar eclipse means for Sagittarius

The new moon element of this cosmic event isn't the only thing to consider, though, as the partial eclipse will also have an effect on your zodiac. Generally, eclipses signify much-needed change in our lives, bringing significant astrological energy (per Astrology Zone).

Bustle explains that this Scorpio solar eclipse has an emphasis on transformation. For Sagittarius, this makes the partial solar eclipse an especially important time for spirituality and healing (per Stylecaster). Self-care routines and relaxation are also necessary for this sign, especially if you've been putting a lot of effort into your social life lately, per Today.

With a second eclipse scheduled to occur on Nov. 8, this time a lunar eclipse, it's recommended to be mindful of any significant changes that happen in between these two cosmic events as they could be indicative of larger shifts to come (via My Imperfect Life).
