The Sagittarius New Moon will be on December 13 at 10.31 am, at 20 degrees and 40’ of Sagittarius. The Sabian Symbol for 21 degrees of Sagittarius is “A child and a dog wearing borrowed eyeglasses”. Dane Rudhyar commented that imagination and make believe can be used to anticipate higher stages of development, a symbol of learning through imitation.

Sol and Luna will be separating from a conjunction to beautiful asteroid Iris, the Goddess of the Rainbow and Intuition, so it will be important to listen to your inner voice when making any kind of decision.

The luminaries will also be widely squaring Neptune, as well as forming an easy opposition (trine and sextile) to the Nodal Axis. It will be the perfect time to focus on your past and how well you are tracking towards meeting your life purpose. Neptune’s watery and illusionary abilities will enable you to come up with more imaginative solutions to anything you are working on!

With the Sun and Moon in the sign of Sagittarius, the focus is always on:

• Optimism, ambition, looking at the big picture
• Being idealistic, examining philosophy and your beliefs
• Global vision, planning change, travel and adventure
• Being restless and impatient, needing action and movement
• Learning from experience
• Imagination and curiosity
• The great outdoors
• Freedom

The area most aligned with the position of the New Moon can found in your natal horoscope chart, however if you only know your Sun Sign, then affirmations around the areas indicated below are likely to be the most powerful:


Mercury will be stationary at the time of the New Moon, Stationing Retrograde just over 7 hours later at 6 09 pm positioned at 8 Capricorn 29’. Whilst the Sagittarius New Moon will make you want to rush off and sample new experiences including travel and adventures, you will need to be super careful with all your bookings and factor in a “plan B” where possible in case of postponements and cancellations.
