What does it look like integrated in a grounded way in life? Where do you need to apply and strengthen faith?

The New Moon in Sagittarius does signify new beginnings as it is a new moon phase. Perhaps one way to use the new beginnings energy, is to surrender to what is dissolving and allow Soul to offer insights after the dissolution rather than beforehand. The tension points to where the fog and lack of self-confidence exists due to past pain which may have generated a belief system.
This is a time to transform and feel things through. Mercury (Direct motion) has now shifted in a more outward expression phase in the deeply intense sign of Scorpio at 27 degrees.

Though this phase of Mercury Direct is just now symbolically shifting, it may take up to two weeks for the full momentum to be felt. What a lovely Pre-New Year gift.
The New Moon in Sagittarius ‘square’ Mars and Neptune in Pisces also suggests as frustrating as we may feel with things not moving swiftly forward, there is a Cosmic plan happening on a collective level and thus we may feel or sense something bigger is unfolding yet the details are not all available. Choose to dissolve an old behavior and belief rather than flapping around powerless. External action may happen once you feel refreshed and more clear (within 2-3days this symbolic and energetic fog may out).
What was planned or expected to happen may alter or shape shift. Rather than resist it, allow things to reveal the higher Truth in the heart of the shift as it clarity returns.
It may be best to ignite and fan the inner Spiritual flame, as vitality may feel diffused now. Rest, renew, recharge and allow for moments of nothingness. Light a candle that best represents the color or scent that “uplifts” you to come out of the box of limitation.
