Remember you may already be irritable and impatient because of the full moon two weeks ago that was also square Mars. So you are more likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression, nastiness or revenge. Not only people, but challenging events may force you to defend your goals or desires.
A defensive position is best. New Moon December is likely to cause a buildup of anger, resentment or sexual frustration. Such potentially destructive energies need to be channeled constructively so they do not result in conflict, accidents, muscle pain or exhaustion. Working on a pet project you are passionate about is another good idea but is probably best done alone.
Events or other people can cause confusion and disappointment, forcing you to battle against the odds. The December 7 new moon has the potential to make you feel insecure, guilty and apologetic. Seeing only the best in people increases the chance of becoming disillusioned or worse. To counter the deceptive influence of this new moon you must be above-board in all of your dealings.
This is not the best time for high stress competitive things like business dealings or negotiations. Predators will easily hone in on your soft side and you could be at greater risk of being taken advantage of. Hypochondria is another issue you may have to deal with. Problems might be difficult to diagnose or there may be a misdiagnosis. You will also be more sensitive to drugs and alcohol, especially if you already have mental health issues such as paranoia or depression. Personal relationships may be subject to dishonesty and deception. Secrets will be harder to keep and harder to uncover.
In hard aspect, it causes much irritation, especially in relationships with women. Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power. Constellation Hercules is said to give strength of character, tenacity and fixity of purpose, an ardent nature and dangerous passions. Mars in almost exact conjunction to Neptune is the main influence on the December 7 new moon. It is a sinister influence because it is square the new moon. Major themes of new moon December will be anger, fear, deception, confusion, treachery, scandal, revenge, immorality and perversion.
Fixed star Ras Algethi joins the new moon to cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. The keys to avoiding loss, suffering and disappointment are honesty and integrity. The actions of others are likely to make you angry, mean and vengeful.
The best option would be to ignore any provocation. If you must react then do so in a straight forward, direct and honest way. In particular, the new moon square Mars Neptune increases the risk of being deceived by fraudsters, charlatans, cult leaders and sexual predators.
Beware of charismatic people claiming to have the answers to your problems. Sexual abuse by priests is likely to make the news yet again. However, new moon December will stimulate your creativity and imagination. So this a good moon phase for art, music, sculpture, dance and drama.
Entertainment, charity work and fighting for social causes are excellent ways to use this ethereal energy safely. The December new moon is the last new moon in the current eclipse phase which began with the July Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. It is a good time to look back over the last five months to check how well you have progressed with your personal goals. If this new moon is exact on the 4th squaring Neptune and mars on the 7th any idea how this could play out Appreciate it:.
I do pay a lot of attention to the cardinal points Eli. I have started writing transits for Sun and Moon to the cardinal points to be used for moon phases.
So you could read Moon opposite Midheaven transit. Then Moon square Neptune transit. This new moon will activate Neptune square Midheaven in your chart which is the most important thing to research.
It sounds like you will be spending your energy on your partner but having to deal with suspicions from your parents or workmates. Thanks Jamie, My birthday was 13th July! His Pluto is 21 Cancer on my Sun!! Will Saturn and Pluto conjunction finally shuffle a few more than usual from the Planet so the younger generations can at last get a foot hold and move up?. I would be grateful to know. If you have time Jamie and are you feeling ok at the moment.?
How does that fit in? Thanks Jamie, really glad you are well. Anaretic degrees are 0, 15, and 29 degrees???
One year after that part Solar eclipse this July. I watch all the patterns now and this new moon seems to have a lot of meaning for that point. I was not aware of 0 and 15 also being anaretic degrees. Yes I know what you means about finding patterns. I have natal North node in cancer at 21 degrees exactly squaring Saturn and opposing Venus which is conjunct south node. Have been cringing all year noticing how eclipses and some moon phases seem to repeatedly target that sensitive part of my chart.
Feels like I am finally aligning with my soul path and waking up to very very painful realities. Still struggling with bad phases though, I am hoping the Jan 5th eclipse bodes well for me! My only comment is heaven help me. Hang in there Lynn. I can relate. Try and watch Teal Swan videos on surrender, and having faith.
Hope this helps, good luck! This may sound like a very high fantasy pie in tbe sky ideal, yet isnt it an ideal worth working for? Of course that is a matter of personal belief and the choices we make in accords with them, what ever we believe will be made so, if we choose believe in contining to grow this hellish existence, so be it, if we choise to grow a more heavenly one, so be it. I;m involved with an Association and we will soon have AGM do you see me being voting on again as Chair? What physically causes what we observe in the sky with our own eyes?
Consider the pattern of the lunar phases in relation to the Sun. As the moon moves further from the Sun in our sky, it grows more and more full. As the moon moves closer to our Sun, it wanes and darkens. The moon is round, like a giant ball and it revolves around the earth.
Sunlight from the Sun is what is lighting up the Moon. Vampires beware, moonlight is nothing more than reflected sunlight!
As the Moon slides away from the Sun in our sky, we see the thin crescent, the edges of the great ball that is the moon being illuminated by sunlight hitting it from the edges. The moon waxes through the gibbous phases until the moon is on the other side of the earth, directly opposite from the Sun. As it moves in its orbit there is a moment in time when the Moon is directly opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated from our point of view on earth. This moment is Full Moon.
Now, the Moon continues around and approaches the Sun from the other side, and begins to wane in brightness as less and less of the Moon from our vantage point receives light from the Sun.
The gibbous and crescent phases decline from the opposite side of the Moon from where they were growing as we approached New Moon because now, like on a merry-go-round, the Moon approaches the Sun from the opposite side from which it left. Sometimes the Full Moon will pass directly into the shadow of the Earth and we observe this as a Lunar Eclipse.
Everyone on Earth who can see the Moon can see a Lunar Eclipse when it occurs because the Moon is physically in the shadow of the Earth and not receiving any light.
A Solar Eclipse on the other hand can only occur during New Moon and this happens on occasion when the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun on its orbit. The Moon is small, and so the shadow from the Moon cannot cover the entire Earth and instead creates a shadow that races across the globe at supersonic speeds as the Moon passes by. Astronomers can calculate the exact times of the New and Full Moon to great accuracy, and you can find these times in most almanacs.
The orbit of the Moon as well as our path around the Sun are quite well understood. It takes the moon about Why the difference?
