Sagittarius New Moon-Dec. 12, 2023

Sagittarius New Moon. December 12, 2023. 3:32pm PST

The Sagittarius New Moon occurring on Tuesday December 12th at 3:32pm PST asks us to aim for new experiences, adopt fresh beliefs and explore higher dimensions. With Mars in Sagittarius and the Moon in a Trine aspect with Chiron and the North Node in Aries, there is extra heat and passion at this lunation that encourages taking your healing or desires to the next level.  The majority of planets are in mutable signs-suggesting you can count on change. What will that be for you? Tap into the expansive energy of Sagittarius to guide you towards  new horizons and abundant possibilities that are calling your name. 

The Moon is making a square to Neptune in Pisces who just recently turned direct. This can bring up some confusion or overly idealistic notions. Mercury in Capricorn takes a practical realistic approach to matters, however, it is barely moving in preparation for retrograde which occurs shortly after this lunation. The ruler of this New Moon Jupiter is in a trine with Mercury, suggesting that there may be things from the past that need to be addressed during this lunar cycle for your aim to be true.  

Mercury will station retrograde on December 13 in Capricorn-moving back into Sagittarius on December 22, the stationing Direct on January 1, 2025. During this lunation and through out this holiday season, you may find yourself revisiting, remembering, redoing or re-evaluating things from the past. If you have travel plans at this time, make sure to double check everything and embrace patience if you encounter delays or restrictions. This is also a good time to back up your computer, and practice loving kindness to yourself and others.  Misunderstandings and miscommunication are not uncommon when Mercury back tracks. Mercury’s retrograde can also bring back people or situations from days gone by that might just make you smile! 

This fiery mutable Sagittarius New Moon is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth, opportunity, optimism, and abundance and is associated with freedom, justice and natural law. These energies are amplified now, offering inspiration and assistance to help achieve your highest New Moon intentions in the right ways and at the right time.
