New Moon in Sagittarius

General Predictions for the New Moon in Sagittarius:

On December the 12th, at 23:32 UT, the Moon meets the Sun, in Sagittarius, forming the New Moon. This is the last New Moon of 2023.

During this waxing Moon period, the Sun enters Capricorn on the 22nd of December, at 03:27 UT. That’s the Solstice, which, depending on your local time zone, might be the 21st, or the 22nd of December. On the next day, the 23rd of December, Mercury returns to Sagittarius. Furthermore, on the 13th of December, at 07:09 UT, Mercury turns Retrograde.

Retrograde activity has declined a lot, but it’s not insignificant, during this fortnight. There are three major planets and Chiron which are Retrograde. Moreover, Jupiter, Chiron and Mercury are all very slow. Jupiter because is getting ready to turn Direct during the coming fortnight, Chiron because is turning Direct on the day of the coming Full Moon, while Mercury because it now turns Retrograde. Therefore, we might feel the effects of the Retrograde activity stronger than normally. Hence, avoid any hasty decisions.

Overall, although the planetary scenery doesn’t change much, its energies change significantly.

The inauspicious aspects of the New Moon:

The Sun squares Neptune. Accurately so, on the 17th of December. The aspect, though, was activated on the 8th of December. It will remain active until the 27th of the month. Amongst else, this aspect can challenge out mood and emotional condition. It can also make us focus more on the negative side of things and give them more value than they deserve.

Mercury, too, squares Neptune. Accurately so, on the day of the Full Moon of the 27th of December, when Mercury will be Retrograde. The aspect, though, will be active from the 20th of December and until the 18th of January, 2024. It will become accurate for a second time on the 9th of January, when Mercury will be Direct.

Furthermore, Mars, too, squares Neptune. Accurately so, on the 28th of December. This square will be active from the 16th of December and until the 11th of January. Our mood, emotional condition and our emotional health need extra care and support, under the influences of this square. It’s also advisable to be more patient, flexible and open-minded in our interactions with others.

Also, Venus opposes Jupiter. The aspect became accurate on the 10th of December and got activated on the 3rd of December. It will remain active until the 18th of December. Amongst else, this aspect can stress love and social life. Also, expenses need some moderation and a wiser thinking. Even though now Mercury will be Retrograde, it will still be supporting both plants – Jupiter more so than Venus – until the end of this aspect’s influences, partly countering this opposition’s effects. Therefore, with some care and caution, we can avoid most of this aspect’s effects.

Moreover, Venus opposes Uranus. Accurately so, on the 21st of December. The aspect, though, will be active from the 14th of December and until the 29th of the month. Amongst else, this aspect can bring some extra tension in love and social life. Also, finances need a wiser handling.

Finally, Venus starts squaring Saturn. This aspect will become accurate on the 1st of January 2024. It will start affecting us on the 24th of December, and it will continue doing so until the 10th of January. Amongst else, love and social life receive some stress from this aspect. Also, health needs a better care.

The auspicious aspects of the New Moon:

Neptune’s years-long hexagon with Pluto, although it has exited its peak, is is still significantly strong, as it won’t cross the deviation of 4° before the 17th of December. Moreover, it will never reach the 5° again until long after the moment it becomes accurate. Therefore, from now on this hexagon will remain at least quite strong. As we’ve said, although this hexagon will be becoming stronger and weaker many times, without ever losing most of its strength, it won’t become accurate again until the 24th of July 2026. By then, though, both planets will have changed their zodiacs.

Amongst else, this hexagon empowers magic and helps us heal our souls, and our relationships. Physical healing, and especially via traditional methods, also receives some help. Progress in medicine and pharmacology, in a global level can receive support, too.

Also, Mercury forms a hexagon with Venus. The hexagon became accurate for the first time, on the 15th of November, when Mercury was in Sagittarius and Venus was in Libra. Then, for a second time, on the eve of this New Moon, the 11th of December. Then, Mercury was barely Direct in Capricorn, and Venus was in Scorpio. The aspect, though, got activated on the 26th of October, and it will remain active until the 18th of December. By then, Mercury will be Retrograde in Capricorn, while Venus will be in Scorpio. Amongst else, this aspect supports love and social life. It can also help those who are trying to expand their social circles, as well as those who are trying to find a new love. Now that Mercury is Retrograde, the blessings of this hexagon might not be as obvious.

Mars conjuncts the Sun. The aspect became accurate on the 18th of November, when both planets were in Scorpio. It got activated, though, on the 17th of October, and it will remain active until the 22nd of December. On that day, the Sun will be entering Capricorn, while Mars will be in Sagittarius.

Those two fiery planets in cooperation can raise our determination and motivation and help us achieve progress with all our goals and projects, and even overcome obstacles. A conjunction, though, although a very strong aspect, it’s not a very harmonious one. Therefore, watch out for its side-effects. It can make us stubborn, reduce our ability to see alternative paths and solutions, or make us unrealistically optimistic. Control those and enjoy the otherwise great blessings this conjunction can bring.

Also, Mercury forms a hexagon with Saturn. The aspect became accurate, for the first time, on the 2nd of December and got activated on the 25th of November. It will remain active until the 29th of December. By then, Mercury will be Retrograde. Moreover, this hexagon will become accurate for a second time, on the 21st of December. Keep in mind that on the 8th of January 2024 the hexagon will be reactivated again. Then, it will last until the 3rd of February.

This is a very helpful aspect and, although it’s a hexagon – a not too strong aspect – it lasts for a long time. Altogether, for more than two months. Amongst else, this aspect can help us keep a clear mind and make good decisions. It also helps healing of all kinds. Via meditative and spiritual means, probably, even more so. Moreover, it supports meditation and visualisation, for all purposes.

Also, Mercury forms a triangle with Jupiter. The aspect became accurate for the first time on the 8th of December, when Mercury was Direct. It will become accurate for a second time, during this fortnight, on the 18th of December, when Mercury will be Retrograde. Overall, the aspect is active since the 30th of November, and it will remain so until the 26th of December. Jupiter will be Retrograde the whole period of this aspect’s influence. Nonetheless, even now that both planets are Retrograde, this is still a beneficial aspect that supports, amongst else, financial matters and social life. Work related social activity, too.

Moreover, Mercury conjuncts the Sun. Accurately so on the Solstice of the 22nd of December. The aspect, though, will be active from the 19th of December and until the Full Moon of the 27th of December. This aspect, too, can support financial and work matters, as well as social life. Not as strongly as normally, since Mercury is Retrograde, but it will support those, regardless.

Also, the Sun forms a hexagon with Saturn. Accurately so, on the 24th of December. The aspect, though, will be active from the 15th of December and until the 4th of January. Amongst else, this aspect can help us to have a cleared mind, as well as to achieve progress with our goals.

Jupiter, too, forms a hexagon with Saturn. This hexagon has been affecting us since the 8th of November, but on the 8th of December it crossed the 5°, becoming quite strong. The hexagon won’t become accurate, but it will continue blessing us until the 17th of May 2024. Moreover, it won’t cross again the 5° before the 12th of April 2024, while from the 25th of December 2023 and until the 24th of March 2024 it will remain under the 3°, hence very strong. In fact, from the 24th of January and until the 20th of February, the hexagon’s deviation from accuracy will be under the 1°. That is, near perfect.

Amongst else, this very beneficial aspect can support meditation and visualisation for all purposes, wish manifestation via spiritual, magical and, also, mundane means. It can also help us achieve progress with all our goals. It is a hexagon and, therefore, it will mostly support our efforts than bringing opportunities on its own, but as it will be very strong for quite a long time, this, too, is possible.

Moreover, the Sun forms a triangle with Jupiter. Accurately so, on the day of the coming Full Moon, the 27th of December. The aspect, though, will be active from the 19th of December and until the 6th of January. Amongst else, this aspect can strengthen Jupiter’s and Saturn’s hexagon’s effects. It can also bring in some good luck. Not the gambling kind of luck, though.

Also, Venus forms a triangle with Neptune. Accurately so, on the 25th of December. The triangle will be active from the 18th of December and until the 3rd of January. Amongst else, this aspect can help emotional healing and healing of our personal relationships. It can also support love life. More over, love and beautification spells receive a boosting from this aspect.

Also, Venus forms a hexagon with Pluto. Accurately so, on the 29th of December. The aspect, though, will be active from the 22nd of December and until the 6th of January. Amongst else, this aspect can support finances. It can also help love life. Moreover, it can strengthen magic and, especially for money, healing, love and beautification. When both this hexagon and the previous triangle will be active, even more so. That is, from the 22nd of December and until the 3rd of January.

Summarising:

So, overall, this is a mostly good and beneficial fortnight. The beneficial aspects are significantly more than the stressful ones, throughout the fortnight. Also, Saturn receives no stress, but much support. Neptune receives some stress – more so after the 16th – but it also receives enough support. Pluto is very active, which can always be challenging for our emotional condition, but all its activity is a beneficial one. Therefore, our mood and emotional condition might not be stress-free, but they receive significantly less stress than until recently and much more support.

There are two planets in a stressful alignment with your zodiac on the day of this New Moon. They’ll become three, on the 22nd and then again two, on the 23rd.

On top of that, Mercury is Retrograde. So, take better care of your health and manage your money as well as you can.

That’s truer for social life, which can also be more active than you expect and, maybe, productive. Work related social activity, too, receives much support.
