This New Moon at 11° 00 Sagittarius on 2 December 2013, 04:23 PM PST is when many of us will begin to reveal what we set in motion during Scorpio season and the last Mercury Retrograde. We haven’t had a New Moon more suited to beginnings than this one in quite some time. The expansive, outwardly directed energy of Sagittarius promises to deliver the news far and wide.
Uranus in Aries is trine the luminaries and that is one powerful motivator! After meeting resistance to its demands from other quarters, Uranus finally finds the perfect ally in a forward looking Sagittarius New Moon to promote the adaptation of innovative ideas and agendas. Those who have personal planets and/or Ascendant from 10° to 12° in fire and air signs will LOVE it! Now they finally will feel like the door has been flung wide open instead of being slammed shut in their faces.
The naysayers are represented by a tight semi-sextile to the New Moon from Pluto in Capricorn. You know all those irritating petty rules and regulations so loved by bureaucrats everywhere? Expect those to be quoted at length. How successful those folks are in blocking momentum depends on whether or not all the details were covered beforehand. Hint: double and triple check any and all applications before submitting them.
If you need help doing your final prep work before making your presentation, it will be there in the form of a fantastic triangle featuring industrious Mars in Virgo trine Venus in orderly Capricorn with both sextile insightful Mercury in Scorpio. This pattern gives us all the tools we need to get all those critical details in place. Mars provides the drive, Venus the charm and Mercury is there to convey the message. This sweet pattern is also excellent for doing the necessary work to improve our relationships in down to earth ways, like agreeing on regular date nights and remembering to put the top on the toothpaste. Little things count in our intimate relationships you know.
Speaking of excellent aspects for being productive, the waxing trine between Saturn in Scorpio and Jupiter in Cancer is terrific. This trine will be exact on December 12 at 18°. Saturn in Scorpio provides the structure to demonstrate Jupiter in Cancer’s caring in tangible ways. However it is important to keep in mind this is a trine and all it does is smooth the troubled waters. Any and all actions to be taken are up to us.
Dreamy Neptune in Pisces is floating along in its own little world for now and won’t actively participate in a lunation until next April. Only those who have personal planets at 2° in the mutable signs are likely to notice Neptune at work.
Best of all possible worlds on this New Moon in Sagittarius is to use the discipline and practicality of the earth and water planets to support the inspiration and brilliance of the New Moon-Uranus trine. Use the days between now and the New Moon on Monday to get everything in place for blast off!
On a personal note: Other than the gradually waning square from Neptune in Pisces to my Venus in Sagittarius, it is the Mars-Mercury-Venus pattern that affects my chart the most. Mercury is FINALLY out of my twelfth house and just past exactly conjoining my Ascendant, Venus in Cappy is exactly sextile my natal Mercury and Mars in Virgo makes a waning sextile to my Ascendant. Looks like I will be more visible again and hopefully able to devote more time to both my website and my writing. That would be good!
