The New Moon of December 6-7 (depending on time zone) falls in Sagittarius, the sign of the centaur, the archer who shoots an arrow into the future, in faith that it will land where it was aimed. A New Moon gives us an opportunity to explore the meaning of the sign it falls in, to learn more about how that sign manifests in our lives to trigger change and growth. The chart for the moment of the New Moon tells the story of the challenges and opportunities that will present themselves in the month ahead.

Full Steam Ahead! New Moon in Sagittarius, Dec. 6

Mama Moon enters the fiery, freedom loving sign of the traveler on Dec. 5 at 6:49 am until Dec. 8 becoming a NEW MOON on Dec. 6 at 11:20 pm pst.

This Moon-Time adds some pep to your step and a cheery ego boost which can be put to positive use if you’re fighting for a good cause. BUT, don’t over-react because it may be too easy to do just that right now. Take the higher, deeper road instead. With planet Mercury going Direct on the day of the New Moon you’re gonna get some much needed help to finally move forward.

New Moon of the Seasons

Do you go out every month, just after sunset, to greet the New Moon in the West?

(They say that it's bad luck to see her through glass, but this means through a window; wearing glasses doesn't count.)

Do you greet her with the sound of horns?

Do you blow her a kiss when you see her?

Do you raise to her your hand?

Do you bend to her your knee?

Do you give her a word of greeting, like Love to you, my Light?

Do you carry in your pocket money, for her blessing?

(For long and long, the silver penny was our major money, and so it was reckoned that money was the Moon's, always waning, like her, and—hopefully—waxing again.)

Do you sing to her a song, like Hail to Thee, Thou New Moon?

What Are You Doing for New Moon?

In the year 691 the emperor Justinian II convoked what has come to be known as the Quinsext Council.

Bishops from all over the Christian world gathered near Constantinople to pass 85 different canons, mostly of a disciplinary nature.

A clergyman may not own a tavern. No one may have a Jewish doctor or “consort with Jews in the baths.” It is forbidden to give communion to the dead.

Of special interest to pagans is Canon 65: It is prohibited to build New Moon bonfires.

New Moon bonfires.

In “a world lit only by fire,” the Moon is important. Nights are dark without the Moon. So when she comes back from her three-nights' sojourn in the Underworld, what you do?

The archetypes of the Warrior, the Pioneer, and the Hunter are highlighted this month by the Aries New Moon. In addition, three powerful planets in Capricorn will highlight the archetypes of the Builder, the Ruler (read: any governing authority), and the Elder.  It’s an active chart that presages shocks, surprises, profound shifts and changes in authority structures, extreme risk-taking, and conflicting agendas.
